Rating agency Fitch today said the second wave of covid 19 infection poses increased risks for India’s fragile economic recovery and it’s banks. Fitch forecasts Indian real GDP growth at 12.8% for the Financial year ending March2022 (FY22).

Fitch expected the worse environment for Indian banking sector in 2021, which also affect  the business  and economic activities too. India’s active covid  infection have been increasing rapidly which also increase the renewed risks to the forecast. This second wave could dent the sluggish recovery in consumer and corporate confidence , further supress banks prospects for new business.
