Moody's projects India's GDP growth at 7.5% in 2015

Moody's Investors Service has projected stable growth rate for India, saying the economy would grow at 7.5 per cent in the current fiscal and improve marginally in the following year.

"We expect that India's real GDP will grow at 7.5 per cent in the financial year ending March 31, 2016 (FY16) and 7.6 per cent in FY17," it said in a report.

"These growth rates would be slightly faster than the 7.4 per cent recorded in FY15 and substantially better than from FY12 to FY14," it said in a report, adding "India's economic growth will remain stable".

Moody's expects the Reserve Bank to maintain its accommodative stance over the outlook horizon, supporting the operating environment for banks. "An accommodative monetary policy should support the growth environment," it said.

India's average annual expansion of 7.7 per cent over the past decade is one of the fastest growth rates globally, as its favorable demographics and the opportunities afforded by a large and diverse national market with high levels of savings have overcome the effects of weak physical infrastructure and sometimes disjointed policies.

However, during this long growth period, the country experienced a significant slowdown in FY12-13 driven in part by policy bottlenecks impacting project investments, the report said.

"Over the past two years (FY14-FY15), some of these problems were addressed. There has been a focus on improving the ease of doing business, particularly with respect to approvals required from the government," it said citing increase in limits on FDI in key sectors like defence and insurance.

Further, there has also been a pick-up in public-sector investments, particularly in areas such as railways and roads, to compensate for the weak levels of private-sector capital investment, it added.

The report also noted that India has weathered the recent volatility in emerging markets much better than peers, as seen in the relatively modest deterioration in the currency, "indicating that investor sentiment remains supportive" of the country's economic outlook. (SH)
