Shaktikanta Das said in the media address-
After the first wave of Corona, there was a recovery in the economy, but the second wave has once again created a crisis. The government is accelerating vaccination. He further said that there are signs of recovery in the global economy. Talking about India, the Indian economy also seems to be recovering from the pressure.
RBI Governor Speech:
Lockdown and other restrictions have been imposed in several states to prevent the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, which is likely to hurt the economy. However, the RBI is keeping its eye on the situation.
A good monsoon further increases the demand for rural demand. Slowing is also seen in manufacturing units.

Build-up in input price pressures across sectors, driven in part by elevated global commodity prices remains a concern. Inflation trajectory over rest of the yr will be shaped by COVID19 infections & impact of localised containment measures on supply chains & logistics: RBI Governor
But even at this time, in run-up to next MPC (Monetary Policy Committee) when our teams are analysing various incoming data, we don't expect any broad deviation from projections made in our April MPC but you'll have to wait for MPC statement due in June 1st week: Shaktikanta Das
