India's external debt rises to $529.7 billion
Updated : June 30, 2018 12:51 PM IST
The increase in the magnitude of external debt was partly due to valuation loss resulting from the depreciation of the US dollar.
Share of commercial borrowings continued to be the largest component of external debt.
