  • S&P Global Ratings raised India’s sovereign rating outlook to ‘positive’ from ‘stable’ while retaining the rating at ‘BBB-‘, saying on Wednesday the country’s robust economic expansion was having a constructive impact on its credit metrics. “We expect sound economic fundamentals to underpin the growth momentum over the next two to three years,” S&P said, adding that regardless of the election outcome, it expected broad continuity in economic reforms and fiscal policies.
  • Some Indian asset reconstruction companies (ARCs) have been circumventing regulations and have allowed themselves to be used for the evergreening of distressed assets, a deputy governor at the Reserve Bank of India said in a recent speech. The RBI has increased supervision of regulated entities to prevent systemic risks and to ensure that regulations are followed. Swaminathan J. addressed a conference in Mumbai for directors and CEOs of ARCs, as a part of the central bank’s supervisory engagement programme earlier this month but the RBI uploaded the full speech on its website on Wednesday.
