OVERVIEW OF INDIAN ECONOMY

During the year under review, global economic activity lost its momentum, resulting in a synchronised slowdown across advanced and emerging market economies. The International Monetary Fund estimated global growth at 3.6% in 2018, down from 3.8% in the previous year. The Indian economy in FY19 displayed two distinct trends. In the first half of the financial year, GDP growth was strong at 7.5%, though there were inflationary concerns, largely due to volatile crude oil prices. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised the repo rate by 25 basis points each in June and August 2018. In the second half of the financial year, Indias growth momentum slipped off due to rising interest rates, tight liquidity conditions and rising risk averseness. This was exacerbated by an across-the-board slowdown of high-frequency indicators such as sales of two-wheelers, passenger vehicles, white goods and fast moving consumer goods, amongst others. Accordingly, the Central Statistics Office revised Indias GDP growth estimate for FY19 to 7%. With a benign inflation scenario playing out in the second half of the financial year, the RBI reduced the repo rate by 25 basis points in February 2019. The RBI followed this with another reduction in the repo rate by 25 basis points in April 2019. To alleviate the tight liquidity conditions, the RBI infused Rs 2.9 trillion through open market operations during the year under review. Another liquidity infusing measure by the RBI entailed dollar/rupee buy/sell swap auctions. To augment the flow of credit, the RBI amended various guidelines such as easing external commercial borrowings and facilitating an increase in asset sales through securitisation by relaxing the minimum holding period from one year to six months. Despite these measures, the challenges of slow monetary policy transmission continued to prevail in the system.

INDUSTRY OVERVIEW

NBFCs continued to grow their share in the financial services industry. Data published by the RBI in its Financial Stability Report dated 31st December 2018 show that NBFCs have outperformed scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) on growth in advances, asset quality and profitability. This growth momentum of NBFCs should result in their share in the financial services sector increasing in the near future.
