India's Feb trade deficit falls to $8.13 billion
The trade deficit for the month of Feb has fallen to $8.13 billion, as against $9.92 billion, month on month. The Feb deficit is now the lowest since September 2009.

Prime reason for the fall was the sharp fall in imports, particularly non oil imports. Non oil imports fell to $24.5 billion. Exports on the other hand also saw a slowdown to $25.68 billion, as against $26.75 billion.

Today's fall in the trade deficit is likely to augur well for the current account deficit which is likely to fall further.
