He further pointed out that apart from this, merchandise export also recorded growth of over 45 per cent. “All these reports together show the economy is on the recovery path and the government has taken several initiatives which will further boost the economy and lead us to a path of double digit growth on a sustainable basis on a higher rate of single digit rate,” BJP national spokesperson said.
