The Reserve Bank of India said after its board meeting that it will
transfer Rs. 1.76 lakh crore to the government this fiscal. The transfer
includes Rs. 1.23 lakh crore of surplus for 2018‐19 and Rs. 52,637 crore of
excess provisions identified as per the revised Economic Capital
Framework (ECF) adopted at the meeting. The higher surplus is due to the
long‐term forex swaps and the open market operations (OMO) conducted
by the central bank over the last fiscal. The surplus transfer was finalized
in tune with the recommendations of the committee under a former
central bank governor. RBI’s central board accepted all the
recommendations of the committee. The government is getting
additional amount of Rs. 86,000 crore above its budgeted Rs. 90,000
The government has started the process of disinvesting its stake to
below 51% in state‐run companies. It has identified nearly 12 firms for
implementing the Budget announcement. The department of public
investment and asset management is in the process of floating a
discussion paper to consider the advantages and disadvantages of the
move, media reports showed. This fiscal’s target from asset sales is
estimated at Rs. 1.05 lakh crore. The companies identified in a
preliminary list include the ones in which the government’s holding
ranges from about 50% to 60%.
A Reserve Bank of India (RBI) survey report showed business sentiment
in India has deteriorated in the second quarter with industrialists
expecting their businesses to perform weaker in the quarter amid fears of
an economic slowdown. In a response from 1,231 companies, growth in
production, order and capacity utilisation is expected to substantially
come down in Q2FY20, the RBI industrial outlook survey of the
manufacturing sector said.
A major global media house has said the Indian economy could have
expanded at its slowest pace in more than five years in the Apr‐Jun 2019
quarter. This happened as investment growth weakened and demand
went sluggish.
Indian equity markets gained for the third consecutive session as fiscal
deficit worries eased after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) decided to
transfer Rs. 1.76 lakh crore to the government. After the
recommendations of a committee, RBI increased its budgeted Rs. 90,000
crore transfer to the government by another Rs. 86,000 crore for the
year. Investors cheered the central banks’ move as the amount could be
used by the government to meet the expected shortfall in revenue

Asian equity markets were mostly higher as the U.S. President spoke of
the possibility of a trade deal with China. He said he believes Beijing’s
efforts to reach a deal are sincere. Today (as of Aug 28), Asian markets
opened higher as investors kept their eyes on the yield curve. Both Nikkei

8.a.m. IST).
European markets were mostly up as China announced it could relax
and remove restrictions on auto purchases in order to boost
U.S. markets lost after bond yields once again moved south, leading to
inversion. Investors see this as a sign of an impending recession as it has
preceded previous recessionary periods. Trade war worries also kept the
market under pressure.
