According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), some of the
reformatory measures that was introduced in India have showcased the
benefits of digitisation which has subsequently lowered the possibility of
fraud. For instance, IMF cited the introduction of e-procurement in India
which has led to an increase in competition and has subsequently
improved the quality of construction. IMF also mentioned the adoption of
an electronic platform for managing a social assistance programme in
India which bought down the expenditure with no corresponding decline
in the benefits. In addition, IMF also took note of the usage of smart cards
which has helped to identify beneficiaries of specific programs and reduce
leakage as well.
According to media reports, the government has kept interest rates for
General Provident Fund (GPF) and other related schemes at 8% for the
quarter from Apr to Jun of 2019. Interest rates thus remained unchanged
as that of the previous quarter.
Capital market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)
has streamlined the process for issuing certified copies of orders and
circulars to the involved parties and other applicants. According to SEBI,
certified copies of the orders that are passed by the former will be
provided free of cost to the parties who are involved in the proceedings.
However, applicants need to pay fees for additional certified copies of the
order. For those applicants that are not directly related to the proceeding,
a fee of Rs. 50 per order or Rs. 5 per page whichever is higher will be
charged as fees for each certified copy.
According to the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of
India (IRDAI), insurance companies need to inform about claim settlement
status to policyholders at various stages of processing from Jul. IRDAI also
advocated for the adoption of a clear and transparent communication
policy in order to protect the interest of the shareholders.
Markets for You
Indian equity markets lost as investors became anxious over the release
of quarterly earnings and the elections around the corner. The sentiment
worsened when the International Monetary Fund (IMF) downgraded its
global economic growth outlook by 0.2 percentage points to 3.3%. IMF
pointed to the US-China trade war and Brexit as key risks, while warning
that it could further cut the outlook.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.91% and
0.75%, respectively, to close at 38,585.35 and 11,584.30, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.33% and 0.02%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1097 scrips advancing
and 1440 scrips declining. A total of 174 scrips remained unchanged.

0.96%, followed by S&P BSE Healthcare, up 0.51%, and S&P BSE
Industrials, up 0.3%. S&P BSE Auto and S&P BSE Consumer Durables
gained 0.21% and 0.07%, respectively. S&P BSE Telecom was the major
loser, down 2.09%, followed by S&P BSE Finance and S&P BSE Teck that
lost 1.06% and 1.05%, respectively.
Asian equity markets were mostly lower as U.S.-China trade worries,
Brexit uncertainties and global growth concerns played on investors’
minds. Media reports expressed scepticism over the possibility of U.S. and
China reaching a permanent solution to end their trade dispute. Today (as
of Apr 10), Asian markets opened almost flat after European Union leaders
and the U.K. agreed to a “flexible extension” of the Brexit deadline till Oct.
31. Nikkei was trading lower 0.03% and Hang Seng was trading up 0.06%
(as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed almost higher after the
European Central Bank left interest rates unchanged. However, gains were
capped as investors were cautious amid global growth concerns and
ahead of Brexit summit.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed higher after the minutes of the
U.S. Federal Reserve's latest monetary policy meeting reaffirmed keeping
rates unchanged this year.
