Moody's Cuts India's FY16 Growth Forecast To 7%
Mumbai: Moody's Investors Service cut its forecast for India's economic growth to around 7 per cent this fiscal year (2015-16) from 7.5 per cent because of lower-than-expected rainfall in the ongoing monsoon season, the ratings agency said on Tuesday.

Moody's maintained its forecast of around 7.5 per cent increase in gross domestic product (GDP) for 2016-17, but pointed to risks ahead that include delays to the government's reform plans.
