Moody’s told Economic and Institutional Reforms that India’s credit rating has increased. In 2004, Moody’s gave India Baa3 rating. It is considered as the lowest investment grade.

India is constantly growing

According to the News Agency, Moody’s said in his statement, “The reason for the upgrading of India’s rating is the economic reforms happening there.” As time goes by, India’s growth will increase. It is also possible that the government in the medium term but the burden of debt will be reduced.”

“We believe that applying reforms correctly will reduce the risk of the growth of debt and the decrease of growth.”

However, Moody’s has advised that India should also keep in mind that more debt will not spoil its credit profile anywhere.

Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad tweeted

– “International agency Moody’s has upgraded India’s rating for the first time since 2004. It shows trust in the Modi government.”
