Professor Subhashish Dey, donning the hat of moderator for the day, opened the discussion on the topic and asked the guests to give their perspectives about the subject. The interaction started by discussing the twin shocks of Demonetisation and Goods and Service Tax, which the Indian economy suffered in recent times.

Dr. Vijayakumar began expressing his views on the theme of the event by saying, “The abnormality about an economy is its prolonged normalcy!”Dr. Tirthankar stressed that the youth in India is a dominant driving force for the economy. With more than 50% of the population below 30 years of age, India has an excellent opportunity to grow and leave behind economies which are currently ahead of it.
