Economic Survey released by the government today paints a "cautiously optimistic" economic outlook and suggests the government will present a fiscally prudent Budget tomorrow, analysts say.

The survey, tabled by finance minister P Chidambaram in Parliament, projected an optimistic growth rate of 6.1-6.7 per cent for the 2013-14 claiming that the downturn is more or less over and economy is looking up.

"The survey paints a cautiously optimistic picture of the economy and holds out hope for the future," Nomura economists Sonal Varma and Aman Mohunta said in a research report.

Echoing similar sentiments Deloitte India senior director Anis Chakravarty said "the Economic Survey 2012-13 released today provides a candid view of the economy and clearly recognises the need for reforms."

Though problem areas are recognised, the survey seems to provide a sense of optimism within the current macroeconomic framework, analysts believe. "Though it provides an optimistic target of 6.1 per cent to 6.7 per cent as GDP growth for the next fiscal, one may conclude that this range is quite wide," Chakravarty said adding that "this sends a message that growth will be driven by reforms and global prospects".

The Nomura report further said that "the survey suggests that the government will present a fiscally prudent Budget. We expect the government to project a fiscal deficit of 4.6 per cent of GDP in FY14 from 5.3 per cent in FY13."

According to PwC India executive director Ranen Banerjee "the economic survey highlights importance of human capital - that is investment in human capital, innovation and knowledge development being the next key drivers of growth."
