According to the latest World Economic Outlook (IMF), India is expected to rebound strongly following the sharp GDP drop estimated at 8% in 2020  as the economy recovers from the pandemic

The IMF pegs GDP growth at 11.5% in 2021, which would be the sharpest reversal of any major economy worldwide and the projection marks a major revision from the IMF's own October '20 projection of only +2.7%, suggesting that India starts out with a stronger-than-expected recovery in 2020 after lockdowns were eased (according to IMF)

Starting out from a strong base, India appears likely to benefit significantly from the global recovery following the COVID pandemic

China remains a special case because its 2021 growth projection (+8.1%) builds on a relatively unscathed GDP in the past year 2020 (+2.3%) but the IMF projection implies that india will be back on track

Sensex, the index for the top 30 on the Indian National Stock Exchange, has recovered stongly but it will be noted that 6 companies weigh more than 50%  of the index - Reliance Industries, HDFC Bank, Infosys, HDFC, ICICI Bank and TCS


The ETFs for India seek to offer alternative investment strategies by size (large, medium and smaller market caps), by factor (yield or expected profitability) and by total market
