The finance ministry see crude stymying 8% growth in FY23 if crude prices persist at the current level for too long. The government is exploring all viable options, including import diversification, to procure crude at an affordable price, the finance ministry’s Department of Economic Affairs said in its monthly report for March.
The ministry flagged the impact of high crude prices on the economy.
