    "The downgrade reflects renewed pressure on the cost and availability of funds for IBH and certain other finance companies in India. This presents a more challenging external environment than Moody's had anticipated," the agency said in a report.
    The stock has fallen 35 percent in 2019 and 57 percent in the last 1 year.
