“Our growth rate is 100 per cent in the current fiscal, which is going to climb to 200 per cent in the next financial year,” he said.
He said Patanjali group wants to throw up Rs 10,000 crore income avenues to farmers in farming, milk production and other sectors in the next two to three years.
Ramdev said that big economies globally were facing a slowdown but that the Indian economy stands strong.
