Director of the IMF Fiscal Affairs Department told reporters at a news conference that "India has recorded quite an impressive growth performance in recent years. Our view is that the elimination of fuel subsidies and the targeting of social benefits has delivered in terms of allowing the union budget target to be achieved at 3.5% of GDP, We have been collaborating with the Indian authorities in terms of looking at fiscal structural measures, including expenditure rationalisation while protecting infrastructure investment, tax broadening efforts.

To make the banking sector resilient to non-performing asset (NPA) shocks, the Reserve Bank of India has come out with stricter norms for banks. RBI asked banks to provide more for standard loans which are stressed. It said boards must put in a policy to consider aspects like debt-equity ratio, interest coverage. The policy should also consider aspects like profit margins.
