Earlier on Friday last week, close on the heels of Moody’s upgrading India’s sovereign credit rating, another global agency Standard & Poor’s kept its rating unchanged at ‘BBB-‘ while also keeping the outlook ‘stable.’ S&P took a favourable view of Narendra Modi administration’s economic reforms undertaken and lauded India’s fiscal consolidation drive but refrained from upgrading the credit rating from the current ‘BBB-‘, the lowest investment grade. Notably, S&P had last upgraded India’s rating from junk grade “BB+” to lowest investment grade “BBB-” 10 years ago in 2007.
