“The economic outlook is subject to several headwinds including tightening of financial conditions, a rising oil bill and weak bank balance sheets," the statement added.

Indian economy grew 8.2% in April-June quarter and the Reserve Bank of India expects Asia’s third-largest economy to grow 7.4% in the 2018-19 fiscal year.
