Moody's Stable on India's Power Sector

Moody's Investors Service and its Indian arm ICRA in a joint report have kept a stable outlook for the Indian power sector over the next 12-18 months, reflecting their expectation of stable industry conditions and government policy initiatives.

The report added that this will likely lead to improvements in the financial position of state-owned electricity distribution companies.

Moody's also said that the government's debt restructuring of the financially weak distribution utilities under the Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojana (UDAY) will gradually improve the financial conditions of state-owned discoms, thereby alleviating off-taker risk, which is a key negative factor for the credit quality of power generators.

The report stated that India (rated Baa2 stable by Moody's) will see a change in its energy mix towards renewable, as the country adds more capacity and moves towards its commitments under the Paris Agreement on climate change

European financial markets however, were mixed as participants monitored the progress of the long-anticipated tax overhaul, expected to pass this week.
