Mumbai: The Reserve Bank on Friday said the country's financial system remains despite slowing economic growth. The country's GDP slowed to a six-year low of 4.5 per cent in the second quarter of FY20, forcing the RBI to slash its growth forecast by 240 basis points to 5 per cent for the fiscal in its December monetary policy review.

The report said all major risk groups such as "global risks, risk perceptions on macroeconomic conditions, financial market risks and institutional positions" were perceived as medium risks affecting the financial system.
However, the perception of risks on various fronts like domestic growth, fiscal, corporate sector and banks' asset quality increased between April and October 2019, it said.
