However, a decrease in India’s overall export volume is expected in fiscal year 2023-24, reaching $437.54 billion, which represents a 1.61% decrease compared to the previous year.
The trade deficit increased to $17.08 billion in October, with the total import volume reaching $79.35 billion. Overall, a trade deficit of $57.64 billion is expected in the fiscal year.
Despite this, India’s total export volume in March 2022-23 reached $775.87 billion, exceeding the previous year’s figures by 14% and nearly $100 billion. India’s goods and services exports in fiscal year 2022-23 grew by 6.74% and 27.86% respectively, reaching $450.43 billion and $325.44 billion.
One of the measures taken by the government is the introduction of a production stimulation scheme in various sectors, including electronic goods, to make Indian producers competitive in the global market and boost exports.
