'An economic recovery is underway with activity picking up and broadening across sectors,' Moody's said

Moody's Investors Service on Tuesday changed its outlook on India's sovereign ratings to stable from negative. However, it retained the ratings, both on foreign and domestic currencies, at the lowest investment grade. Experts said this would have a beneficial impact on debt allocations by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) to Indian papers.
"The decision to change the outlook to stable reflects Moody's view that the downside risks from negative feedback between the real economy and financial system are receding," said the ratings agency.
Now, Moody's and Standard & Poor's have a stable outlook on their ratings on India, while Fitch still has a negative outlook. All three rating agencies have given India the lowest investment grade.
