Indian-Commodity  :  Top News  :  Care Ratings estimates India's GDP to accelerate to 7.5% in FY19

Care Ratings estimates India's GDP to accelerate to 7.5% in FY19 (25-May-2018)

Credit rating agency, Care Ratings in its latest report titled 'Indian Economy Prognosis: 2018-19' has forecasted that India's gross domestic product (GDP) growth will accelerate to 7.5% in 2018-19, from 6.6% in the last fiscal. It added that the growth will be dependent on favorable monsoon, pick up in investment and increased private sector spending supported by continued government spending. However, it pointed out that some areas of concerns are headline inflation, lending rates, fiscal prudence, current account deficit (CAD) and exchange rates.

The rating agency estimated that CAD will widen up to 2.5% of GDP for FY19, from the 1.7% for the first nine months of FY18, due to wider trade deficit, an estimated slowdown in the portfolio flows and increased oil prices. It also expects that farm sector growth to inch up to 4%, from the 3% in the year-ago period, and industrial output growth to go up to 6%, from 4.3% in the previous year. Besides, it noticed that meeting the wider 3.3% target on the fiscal deficit will be difficult and adherence will depend on achievement of the Rs 80,000 crore divestment target, goods and services tax (GST) collections and tax receipts. 

On the inflation front, the report said that the consumer price inflation will go up to 5.5% for the fiscal, from the 3.6% in FY18, which may result in rate hikes of up to 0.50% by the inflation-focused Reserve Bank of India during the year. For the banking sector, it said that it will have an 'upward bias' with credit growth estimated to increase to 12% and deposits to expand by 10% and added that non-performing assets (NPAs) will be a major challenge for lenders.

Care Ratings has said that the estimates in the report have been made assuming that crude oil does not spiral over the present $80 per barrel and settles down at up to $75. It also said that the exchange rate will slip further to the 67-68 levels against the US dollar by the end of FY19 and added that the reserves will grow marginally to $435 billion, from $425 billion at present.
