The decline of $29.7 billion in net claims during Q1:2020-21 was mainly due to an increase of $27.9 billion in reserve assets.
Among the constituents of foreign-owned assets, loans, foreign direct investment (FDI) and currency and deposits increased, whereas portfolio investment declined during the quarter.
Reserve assets continued to have the dominant share in India’s international assets.
The share of non-debt liabilities increased marginally during the quarter to 48.9 per cent as at end-June 2020.
