India GDP growth in Q1-Q3 2021

India is a middle-income country ranking 3rd in GDP and 124th in GDP per capita (both in PPP-adjusted dollars). India's economy grew uninterruptedly between 1980 and 2020.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic caused it to plunge into a recession for the first time in 40 years. The International Monetary Fund's World Economic Outlook report currently estimates this contraction at -10.29% of GDP.

Will India's GDP grow in the first three quarters of 2021?

Resolution will be based on the Federal Reserve Economic Data series NAEXKP01INQ657S, which shows seasonally adjusted quarter-to-quarter growth in India's GDP at constant 2015 prices. The question will resolve positive if all three data points for Q1, Q2, and Q3 of 2021 are positive. It will resolve negative otherwise.

Community Stats

Metaculus help: Community Stats

Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.

When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
