September 2018: India’s CAD is beginning to show signs of surge, having already stretched to 2.4% of GDP in 1QFY2018-19. It is expected that CAD is likely to stretch beyond the 2.5% mark in FY2018-19, largely on account of higher crude oil prices, capital re-routing across emerging markets, and depreciation of rupee.
