on adoption of electric vehicles and making it mainstream.
According to a private survey, short term financial conditions in India
deteriorated for the fourth quarter of the current fiscal ending Mar 31,
2018. The CII IBA Financial C o nditions Index stood at 53.2 for the quarter
ending Mar 31, 2018, as against 65.3 in the previous quarter. The fall can
be attributed to concerns of increase in domestic inflationary pressures,
decline of excess liquidity from the banking sector and lower possibility of
a rate cut by the Monetary Policy Committee in the near term. However,
market participants are optimistic of increase in foreign exchange
reserves and expects increase in money mobilization through the external
commercial borrowings, foreign currency convertible bonds, American
depositary receipts and global depository receipts.
