This year, Indian economy has been expected to get a growth rate of 6.4%, according to released predictions on Tuesday by the Bangkok-based UN Economic, Social Commission (SC) for Asia, the Pacific (ESCAP) and the World Bank.

Another statement was passed by the World back after the economic reforming measures taken by the Indian government which took the helms in May 2014, predicted that India would be able to match up with China’s growth in the year 2016-2017. The India’s economy will be able to see a growth rate by 7% next year.

“China’s growth will remain high, but will begin to taper very gently, reaching 6.9 per cent in 2017,” World Bank chief economist and senior vice-president Kaushik Basu said.

The World Bank which earlier estimated a growth rate of 5.6% in 2014 and is expecting a growth rate of 6.4% in 2015 of India, predicted that of China’s as 7.4% in 2014 and 7.1 per cent (has forecasted) in 2015.

Overall, Basu has painted a vague picture of the global economy looking at a “procrastinated recovery in some high-earning economies and middle-earning countries” but he also said “there might be some silver linings in these black clouds.”

The World Bank also commented that the higher-end growth prospects in the United States and United Kingdom made them distinct from other high earning nations, including the countries having the euro zone and Japan, which still face pallid economies and deflation anxieties.

“The global economy is working on a single machine- the American one,” Basu said. “This does not have a good odd to be in favor for the world.”

Brazil and Russia specifically make a majority on the bank’s global growth estimations, along with China, which is in a disciplined deceleration as it transforms away from an investment-led growth model.

With the good estimation the World Bank has also warned, “Any slackening in the reformation may lead to a more modest or slower pace of recovery.”
