Global rating agency Moody's Investors Service last week cut India's outlook from 'stable' to 'negative'. It warned that the Indian economy could be heading for a debt trap and recessionary phase, adding that the ongoing credit crunch among non-bank financial institutions is unlikely to be resolved quickly. The government vehemently opposed this view, adding that India, one among the fastest growing major economies in the world, has strong fundamentals.
