Indian equity markets gained and touched record high during the day.
Investors are hoping for a repo rate cut by the Monetary Policy Committee
at its policy review meet during the week. Positive global cues following
U.S.-China making progress in their trade talks lifted markets.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.51% and
0.39% to close at 38,871.87 and 11,669.15, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
and S&P BSE Small Cap gained 0.52% and 0.78%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,690 scrips
advancing and 913 scrips declining. A total of 172 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Metal was the major gainer, followed
by S&P BSE Information Technology and S&P BSE Industrials. The biggest
loser was S&P BSE Realty, followed by S&P BSE Consumer Durables and
S&P BSE Bankex, down 0.63% and 0.25%, respectively.
Government data showed that eight core sectors grew 2.1% in Feb 2019
as against downwardly revised growth of 1.5% (1.8% growth originally
reported) in the previous month and 5.4% in the same month of the
previous year. The upside on month on month basis reflects growth in coal
sector of 7.3% as against growth of 1.7% in Jan 2019. Meanwhile,
contraction in growth slowed in refinery products sector from -2.6% in Jan
2019 to -0.8% in Feb 2019. Maximum growth of 8% was witnessed in
cement sector. However, growth in crude oil remained in contractionary
mode and fell 6.1%.
Goods and Services Tax (GST) collections touched Rs. 11.77 lakh crore in
FY19, thereby exceeding the revised budget estimates. There was record
realisation of Rs. 1.06 lakh crore alone in Mar 2019. Monthly return filing
was highest in Mar 2019 since the GST rollout on Jul 1, 2017 that indicated
improved compliance.
According to media reports, India has levied anti-dumping duty in the
range of $537-$1,559 per tonne on imports of a certain type of sheet used
in solar cell making from China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Thailand. The
duty imposed shall be effective for a period of five years. The
announcement comes to protect domestic players against cheap
According to media reports, direct tax collections have fallen short by Rs.
50,000 crore due to poor personal income tax collections. As per the
reports, the target of personal income tax of Rs. 5.29 lakh crore was not
met and fell short of almost the same amount of Rs. 50,000 crore. This,
therefore, means the revised target of Rs. 12 lakh crore for FY19 will also
not be met. Meanwhile, corporate tax target of Rs. 6.71 lakh crore was
almost met with minor deviations.
According to media reports, the government has brought in a new Indian
accounting standard 116 (Ind AS 116) that sets out the principles for
recognition, presentation and disclosure of leases. This accounting
standard is expected to bring in more transparency in recognition and
disclosures about leases in balance sheets of the companies. Additionally,
it is expected to have a substantial effect on various industries, including
aviation as airlines mostly operate planes on lease.
Asian equity markets gained as investors welcomed signs of progress in
U.S.-China trade talks and upbeat manufacturing data from China. Beijing
said it would continue to suspend extra tariffs on U.S. vehicles and auto
parts beyond Apr 1 since Washington has delayed tariff hikes on Chinese
imports. A delegation led by Vice Premier will be in Washington in the
week for another round of talks. Today (as of Apr 2), Asian markets
opened on a positive note following gains in Wall Street in the last session
as worries over a possible global economic slowdown eased. Nikkei and
Hangseng grew 0.47% and 0.41%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed higher on U.S. and
China’s upbeat manufacturing data for Mar 2019. Further, continued
optimism over trade discussions between U.S. and China boosted the
