Calling for faster decision making, finance minister Arun Jaitley on Monday said that a stable and decisive government can help the country exceed the growth rates of 8 per cent to 9 per cent clocked during the previous UPA regime.
“Even at the modest level of governance, we have grown at 8-9 per cent. With much better level of governance, I think we have capacity to break the deadline you are setting for,” he said at the book launch of ‘Exploding Aspirations-Unlocking India’s Future’ by Rajiv Kumar.
Noting that much of the decision making for economic reforms does not require legislation, the finance minister said that by and large there continues to be support for legislative decisions as well.
