Crisil has reaffirmed its credit ratings, DHFL said in a regulatory filing to stock exchanges.

A1 rating instruments are considered to have very strong degree of safety regarding timely payment of financial obligations.

Such instruments carry lowest credit risk, as per the definition by Crisil.

Earlier this week, DHFL said it proposes to reduce exposure to CP as part of overall borrowing plan and increase hedging activity, days after the shares of the company tumbled up to 42 percent on massive selling over fears of a liquidity crisis.

The company expects liquidity to remain tight in second half with volatility in rates.
