What is meant by financial emergency?

Financial emergency:

Article 360 provides that if the President is satisfied that the financial stability or credit of India or any of its part is in danger, he may declare a state of Financial Emergency. It has to be approved by the Parliament and must be approved by both Houses of Parliament within two months. Financial Emergency can operate as long as the situation demands and may be revoked by a subsequent proclamation. 

Art 360 provides that if the president is satisfied that a situation has arisen whereby the financial security of India or the credit of India or of any part of India is threatened, he may make a declaration to that effect. Under such a situation, the executive and legislative powers will go to the centre. This article has never been invoked.
