News Updates - India needs more action to support fiscal stability: IMF

India needs to take further policy action to support external and fiscal stability in coming years and should focus on revenue-side measures and adopt additional structural reforms to sustain its strong growth, the IMF said today.

Observing that favorable policies and increased political certainty following 2014 election strenghned India's economic activity, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said, "Since 2013, reductions in spending have fostered some improvement in the fiscal deficit, and the current account deficit has narrowed considerably more than expected.

" The IMF in its latest Staff Sustainability Assessments for G-20 Mutual Assessment Process attributed this improvement to import compression associated with weak private investment, as well as a reduction in gold imports.

More recently, economic activity has been strengthening, as business and consumer confidence have rallied in response to favourable policies and increased political certainty following the 2014 election, it said.

Going forward, this strong growth is expected to continue as a result of lower oil prices and favourable policy measures, though inflation expectations remain elevated despite relatively tight monetary policy and lower global commodity prices, IMF said.

These positive developments notwithstanding, the IMF observed, further policy action is needed to support external and fiscal stability in coming years.
