The governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) resigned on account of
personal reasons. He was appointed in 2016 for a three-year term, which
was to expire in Sep 2019.
According to the preliminary numbers released by RBI, Current Account
Deficit (CAD) rose to $19.1 billion or 2.9% of GDP in Q2 of 2018-19, up
from $6.9 billion or 1.1% of GDP in Q2 of 2017-18 and $15.9 billion (2.4%
of GDP) in Q1 2018-19. The widening of the CAD was due to higher trade
deficit that came in at $50.0 billion as against $32.5 billion in the
previous year period. Net services receipts grew 10.2% YoY mainly due to
rise in net earnings from software and financial services.
The Finance Ministry has announced that the contribution by the
central government employees under the Tier-II of the National Pension
System (NPS) will now qualify for deduction under section 80C of the
Income Tax Act. However, prior to the announcement, the deduction
was available only for investments in TIER-I account of NPS scheme.
According to a data from the government, the provisional figures for
direct tax collections grew 15.7% YoY to Rs. 6.75 lakh crore for the period
Apr-Nov 2018. Meanwhile, refunds for the same period grew 20.8% YoY
to Rs. 1.23 lakh crore.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has lined up some
relaxations for new-age ventures in sectors like e-commerce, data
analytics and bio-technology to raise funds and get their shares traded
on stock exchanges. This comes as a major push to kickstart listing of
start-ups in India. The relaxation in the norms comes on the wake of
tepid market interest to the existing platform. Also, demands from
various stakeholders to make the norms easier and the platform more
accessible led to the relaxation of norms.

Indian equity markets started the week on a negative note. Investors
remained cautious over uncertainty of the outcome of state election
results. Weak rupee continued to weigh on the markets. Decline in
banking stocks weighed on the indices after stocks of a major private
sector bank fell as it challenged the Reserve Bank of India’s decision in
court to disregard the issue of preference shares to reduce promoter
stake in bank.
Further, soft global cues following weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs data
and China’s trade data for Nov 2018 raised concerns over global growth,
thereby souring investor sentiment. Brexit-related uncertainty and rising
tensions between the U.S. and China also dented investor sentiment.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 2.00% and
1.92% to close at 34,959.72 and 10,488.45, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap each fell 1.84%.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1,911 scrips
declining and 613 scrips advancing. A total of 154 scrips remained
Asian markets fell on concerns over global growth forecast after the
U.S. jobs data for Nov 2018 came lower-than-expected. Some of the key
economic data from China and Japan further dented sentiments. While,
Chinese trade data stood weaker-than-expected, China's consumer
inflation and producer price inflation also eased in Nov. Additionally,
Japanese economy contracted in the third quarter period. Today (as of
Dec 11), Asian markets opened lower amid volatile session on the U.S.
Wall Street. Both Nikkei and Hangseng were trading down 0.72% and
0.50%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower due to worries
over slowing economic growth and after a Brexit vote in U.K. parliament
was been delayed by the Prime Minister.
As per the last close, U.S. markets closed mostly higher after investors
resorted to bargain hunting after the early weakness extended the sell-
off seen last week. However, concerns about the global economic
outlook and uncertainty over long-term trade deal between the U.S. and
China capped the gains.
