Economy in better shape with vaccine availability: CEA

by Nidhi Bhati

Chief Economic Adviser K V Subramanian has asserted that the Indian economy is in better shape to address the challenge of the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic compared to last year because of the ongoing vaccination drive and the technology-aided ability to provide instant relief to the poor. Subramanian further stated that a key factor during pandemic is the role of e-commerce and digitisation that India embraced.
