Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee talking to the media at Parliament House in New Delhi during the ongoing budget session. S&P’s rating a timely warning, says Pranab. Global agency Standard and Poor's (S&P) lowered India's rating outlook to negative and warned of a downgrade in two years if there is no improvement in the fiscal situation and the political climate continues to worsen. The lowering of outlook from stable (BBB+) to negative (BBB-) is expected to make external commercial borrowings expensive for Indian Inc. It may also have implications for the capital market.
