Moody's projects Indian economy to contract 11.5% this fiscal

|

New Delhi, Sep 11: Moody's Investors Service on Friday slashed India''s growth projection for the current fiscal to (-) 11.5 per cent, from (-) 4 per cent estimated earlier.

It said India's credit profile is increasingly constrained by low growth, high debt burden and weak financial system. These risks have been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic.

"Mutually reinforcing risks from deeper stresses in the economy and financial system could lead to a more severe and prolonged erosion in fiscal strength, exerting further pressure on the credit profile," Moody's said while projecting an 11.5 per cent contraction in Indian economy this fiscal.

For 2021-22, it projected the economy to clock a growth of 10.6 per cent.

Moody's action follows another global rating agency Fitch, which earlier this week, projected a 10.5 per cent contraction in Indian economy this fiscal.

Domestic agencies Crisil and India Ratings and Research have projected contraction of 9 per cent and 11.8 per cent, respectively.
