Question addressed in the present study is how these developments are likely to affect the Indian economy. In India, while Brexit is likely to cause slow growth, economic prospects remain relatively doubtful due to the affect of factors like strong monsoon, effect of pay hikes and higher public capex. India is strongly committed for factors like economic stability, while its basics were sound with "a very comfortable external position, a rock-solid commitment to fiscal discipline and declining inflation.
