Four-Pronged Approach: What The Economic Survey Says About The Government's Response To Covid Principal Economic Advisor Sanjeev Sanyal and Chief Economic Advisor V. Anantha Nageswaran

The Economic Survey was tabled in the Parliament and thereafter released for the public today.

It was presented before the media by Principal Economic Advisor Sanjeev Sanyal. Before Sanyal's presentation, the Chief Economic Advisor, V Anantha Nageswaran, who joined office only two days ago, summarised the main themes of the Economic Survey.

Nageswaran said that the overall theme of the Survey was the same as the themes of the Union government's economic response to Covid and the disruptions that came in its wake.

"The government has pursued a four-pronged approach:

1. Short-term support to the economy, especially the vulnerable sections.

2. Keeping a firm eye on the medium-term fiscal stability

3. Initiating structural and supply-side reforms.

4. Attention to process reforms.
