package. Economic growth uncertainties and rise in crude oil prices also
hit sentiment.

0.89% to close at 37,060.37 and 10,918.70, respectively. S&P BSE Mid‐

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has allowed credit
rating agencies to obtain details of clients existing and future debt. This
will help them identify defaults in a timely way in the middle of a severe
credit crunch and economic slowdown. SEBI has enabled rating agencies
to get “explicit consent” from clients in rating agreements to secure
details on debt repayments and any delays or defaults from lenders or
other organisations. Rating agencies have often cited the lack of
information shared by companies as a reason for failing to identify
potential defaults in time. The regulator has also been tightening
disclosure regulations to boost monitoring, accountability and
transparency of rating agencies.
SEBI has eased several regulations for foreign portfolio investors (FPIs).
These include simplifying registration procedures and eligibility criteria.
The regulator also allowed mutual funds to invest up to 10% of their total
debt portfolio in unlisted non‐convertible debentures (NCDs) only if the
instruments are rated and secured. SEBI had a few months ago said it
would limit mutual funds to listed NCDs.
Union minister for road transport and highways said the government
has not set any deadline for automobile manufacturers to shift to electric
mobility or to ban production of petrol, diesel vehicles. “There is no
deadline as of now. The shift towards electric vehicle will happen in

the Indian automobile sector is facing continued slowdown in sales and
job cuts over the past few months.

Asian equity markets ended mixed as trade concerns reappeared, and
investors looked forward to cues from the U.S. Federal Reserve
chairman’s speech at the Jackson Hole symposium on Aug 23, 2019 and
at the Group of Seven (G7) summit in the weekend. Investors stayed on
the sidelines on concerns about Italy's political unrest and Britain's
troubled exit from the European Union. Today (as of Aug 22), Asian
markets opened higher taking cues from gains in overnight U.S. markets.
While Nikkei was trading up 0.05%, Hang Seng was down 0.58% (as at
8.a.m. IST).
European markets gained as investors looked forward to the release of
minutes of U.S. Federal Reserve’s latest meeting and the U.S. President
suggested he was looking into ways to boost the economy.
U.S. markets gained as strong quarterly results of retail majors lifted
sentiment. The better than expected earnings have come at a time when
markets were anxious over a possible U.S. economic slowdown.
