B- Only 2
C- Only 3,2
D- All of the Above

MCQ Source – 16th November 2018, The Hindu Newspaper,Page-13 Topic-Page-13 Fitch retains rating for India

Ans-C

Exp-

Why in news? Refusing to upgrade India’s credit rating for the 12th year in a row, Fitch today retained its sovereign rating at ‘BBB-‘, the lowest investment grade with a stable outlook.

CREDIT RATINGS:

  • Also called debt rating, this is a method of measuring the creditworthiness of a debt issuer.
  • The ratings provided by the main credit rating agencies, Moody’s Investors Service, Standard & Poor’s (S&P) and Fitch, evaluate issuers worldwide and are very closely followed.
  • A top rating means there is almost no likelihood of the borrower failing to meet interest payments or full redemption of the issue.
  • Credit ratings are opinions expressed on an alphanumeric scale on the relative ability and willingness of a debt issuer to meet financial commitments.
  • Credit ratings published by the main global rating agencies aim to provide ratings that are objective and transparent, as well as consistent and comparable across instruments, maturities, industries and countries.
  • Some sectors, maturities and countries have their own specific rating scales.
  • The long-term global rating scale at S&P and Fitch contain nine grades and goes from the highest grade to the lowest grade (in increasing order of riskiness): AAA, AA, A, BBB, BB, B, CCC, CC, C.
  • For Moody’s, the scale contains nine grades and goes from the highest grade to the lowest grade (in increasing order of riskiness): Aaa, Aa, A, Baa, Ba, B, Caa, Ca, C.
  • All three global credit rating agencies, for each full grade other than AAA (or Aaa), CC (or Ca), or C, include a positive, neutral or negative modifier for Fitch and S&P or a numerical modifier for Moody’s.
  • This brings the nine point rating scale to a 21 point scale. For instance, for the AA grade there are AA+, AA, AA- or Aa1, Aa2, Aa3.
  • Government credit ratings take into account three main elements which are:
    • Public debt as a percentage of gross domestic product
    • the budget deficit (the amount government spending exceeds income)
    • debt affordability (interest costs as a percentage of revenue)

India’s latest rating by Fitch:

  • Fitch, in 2018, has retained its sovereign rating at ‘BBB-‘, the lowest investment grade with a stable outlook, saying that weak fiscal balances continue to constrain its ratings.
  • The government had made a strong pitch to Fitch Ratings for an upgrade after rival Moody’s Investors Service last November gave the country its first sovereign rating upgrade since 2004.
  • Fitch had last upgraded India’s sovereign rating from BB+ to BBB- with a stable outlook on August 1, 2006.
  • Fitch Ratings has affirmed India’s Long-Term Foreign-Currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at ‘BBB-‘ with a stable outlook.
  • India’s rating balances a strong medium-term growth outlook and favourable external balances with weak fiscal finances and some lagging structural factors, including governance standards and a still-difficult, but improving, business environment.
  • Weak fiscal balances, the Achilles’ heel in India’s credit profile, continue to constrain its ratings.
  • India has the highest medium-term growth potential among the largest emerging markets, according to a recent Fitch

 

Q-Consider the following statements regarding Fitch Credit Rating consider while govt credit rating

B- Only 2
C- Both are Correct
D- None of the Above

MCQ Source- World Health Organization website http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/89/4/11-086850/en/

Ans-C

Exp-

  • Opioid replacement therapy (ORT), also called opioid substitution therapy or opioid maintenance therapy, is a drug therapy that involves replacing an opioid, such as heroin, with a longer acting but less euphoric opioid. Commonly used drugs for ORT are methadone or buprenorphine which are taken under medical supervision.
  • The driving principle behind ORT is the program’s capacity to facilitate a resumption of stability in the user’s life, while the patient experiences reduced symptoms of drug withdrawal and less intense drug cravings; a strong euphoric effect is not experienced as a result of the treatment drug.
  • Opioids are substances that act on opioid receptors to produce morphine-like effects. Medically they are primarily used for pain relief, including anaesthesia.
  • Opioid use disorder is a medical condition characterized by a problematic pattern of opioid use that causes clinically significant impairment or distress. It often includes a strong desire
    to use opioids, increased tolerance to opioids, and withdrawal syndrome when opioids are abruptly discontinued. Addiction and dependence are components of a substance use disorder and addiction represents the most severe form of the disorder. Opioid dependence can manifest as physical dependence, psychological dependence, or both.
  • Opioids include substances such as morphine, heroin, codeine, and oxycodone.

MCQ Source- Analyzing Previous month important event in PIB News http://pib.nic.in/newsite/PrintRelease.aspx?relid=179796

Ans-A

Exp-

  • Atal Bhoojal Yojana is an ambitious plan aimed at efficient management of available water resources. Atal Bhujal Yojana will focus on demand side management (how to meet requirements by minimum use of water).
  • The emphasis of the scheme will be on recharge of ground water sources and efficient use of water by involving people at the local level.
  • The half of the fund of 6000 crore will be supported by a world bank loan of 3000 crore and the rest will be funded by central government.
  • It would initially be implemented with community participation in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Haryana, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
    The ministry had initially conceptualised the National Groundwater Management Improvement Scheme (NGMIS) in response to the budget announcement of 2016-17. However, the NGMIS was shot down by the expenditure finance committee in May 2017,recommending that the ministry recast the scheme with a composite proposal. The scheme has since been recast and renamed as Atal Bhujal Yojana.
    The Centre does not have any control over groundwater. The only law that deals with groundwater – the Indian Easements Act – dates back to 1882. This law states that water below the surface belongs to the land owner. In the past several years, 13 states have bought their own law to regulate groundwater extraction but implementation has been patchy.
