Growth is then expected to gradually recover to 6.9 percent in fiscal year 2020/21 and to 7.2 percent in the following year. The outlook for both years were lowered from 7.5 percent projected in April.

The lender observed that India's cyclical slowdown in severe. Manufacturing growth reached below 1 percent in the second quarter of 2019. Although this drop follows the global trend, it was more pronounced.

Growth in South Asia was projected to slow to 5.9 percent in 2019, down 1.1 percentage points from April 2019 estimates.
