The government will not go in for additional borrowing this fiscal year and will be able to keep the fiscal deficit at 5.3 percent of GDP, said Arvind Mayaram, a senior finance ministry official.

Finance Minister P. Chidambaram has staked his reputation on lowering the deficit to 5.3 percent of GDP to improve the investment climate following ratings agency threats to downgrade India's sovereign debt to junk if action was not taken.
