According to data released by Society of Indian Automobile
Manufacturers (SIAM), passenger vehicle sales fell 3.43% to 2,66,000 units
in Nov 2018 as against 2,75,440 units in the year-ago month. It was fourth
monthly decline since Jul 2018 as spike in interest rates and high fuel
prices decreased consumer demand. However, two-wheeler sales rose
7.15% YoY to 16,45,791 units from 15,36,015 units from Nov 2017. Also,
vehicle sales across categories registered a rise of 5.03% to 20,38,015
units in Nov 2018 from 19,40,462 units in Nov 2017.
A major credit rating agency has assigned negative outlook to the
domestic airline industry as increased passenger demand is offset by
capacity additions that may leading to intense competition and continued
pressure on yields. However, the domestic passenger traffic growth is
expected to remain healthy at around 15% -16% in the medium term due
to low penetration levels, favourable macro environment, regulatory push
towards regional connectivity and development of new airports.
As per media reports, Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) may
consider strengthening the framework for debenture trustees by raising
minimum net worth requirement for registration of such entities and
introducing e-voting provision to obtain approval of the unitholders. This
may be done to safeguard the interests of debenture holders and to
enable debenture trustees to perform their duties effectively and
promptly in the interests of investors.
The department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP) has floated a
draft rule to amend the Patents Rules, 2003, in order to further streamline
examination of applications. As per the draft rules, removal of the
transmittal fee for international application (for e-patent cooperation
treaty filing) for startups and small entities is suggested. The move is
important as the ministry is taking steps to fast track examination of
patent applications particularly for startups.
