On the monetary side, areas of concern are rising bond yields which indicate potential slippages on the fiscal front, he said.
"Things are improving now. If things behave as they are now and the policy remains conducive, growth in current fiscal is expected to be 7.4 per cent", Pant said.
He said it was unlikely that the government would go ahead with big bang reforms due to the 2019 Lok sabha elections.
If the CAD remained within three per cent, then it would not be alarming for the economy provided capital inflows were in excess of outflows caused by high oil import bill.
"In that case, the rupee will have an appreciating bias" he said.
