The rating agency also said that it could upgrade India's rating in 12-18 months time if such measures propel growth.


"The macro-economic situation has improved dramatically in last 10 months, obviously due to action that we have taken as far as fiscal policy is concerned," Sinha said.


Reiterating that India has benefited from declining global oil price, Sinha said, "So those macro-economic factors are very much in our favour.


We have to work on (them) to ensure that sector-wise growth picks up".
