Jain Irrigation Systems tanked 29 per cent to Rs 19.55 after rating agency India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) downgraded the company’s long-term issuer rating to ‘IND BBB’ from IND A-“ with negative outlook.

The rating watch negative reflects the risk of delay in the company’s deleveraging plans or a further increase in its working capital requirement, resulting in further worsening of its liquidity position.
