The government is planning to infuse additional capital of up to Rs.
30,000 crore in public sector banks as they have been unable to raise
required funds from the markets, as per media reports. As part of the
capital infusion plan announced by the Ministry of Finance in Oct 2017,
the government envisaged that public sector banks (PSBs) would raise
Rs. 58,000 crore from the stock markets by Mar 2019 to meet Basel III
norms. However, due to submissive market conditions, banks were
unable to raise enough funds from the markets till now.
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council is planning to rationalise the
28% slab by cutting tax rates on construction items, like cement, in a
meeting scheduled next week. The council, chaired by Union finance
minister and encompassing his state counterparts, has trimmed the 28%
slab by cutting tax rates on 191 goods over the last one-and-a-half year,
leaving only 35 items in the highest slab.
Seven public sector banks in their meeting with the newly-appointed
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor sought relaxation of prompt
corrective action (PCA) norms, easing of one-day default circular, among
other things, according to media reports. In the 90-minute meeting the
governor tried to understand the problems of state-owned banks.
The government is not looking to change the existing foreign direct
investment (FDI) policy in the multi-brand retail trading sector, according
to internal sources. Currently, the FDI policy permits overseas players to
hold 51% stake in an Indian multi-brand retail company. So far, only one
foreign player, Tesco, has received approval for opening stores under the
multi-brand retail policy. The approval came from the UPA government.
According to the Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways,
about 435 infrastructure and highway projects across the country are
stuck on account of various factors. The factors include delay in land
acquisition, regulatory clearances, utility shifting, non-availability of
soil/aggregate, poor performance of contracts, environment/forest/
wildlife clearances.

Asian equity markets extended gains as investors grew hopeful of U.S.
and China striking a long-term trade deal. The optimism stems from news
that China for the first time in more than six months bought soybeans
form U.S. These developments are making investors confident that the
two countries are sticking by the agreement at G20. Today (as of Dec 14),
Asian markets opened lower following decline in European markets and
mixed session on Wall Street. Further, investors remained cautious ahead
of slew of China’s economic data due later in the day. Nikkei and
Hangseng fell 1.49% and 1.42%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed almost lower as
investors remained cautious amid major ECB developments and results of
U.K. vote. Downgrade of eurozone’s growth projection for 2018 and 2019
also soured investor sentiment.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a mixed note as investors
remained focused on new developments in the ongoing U.S.-China trade
war. Steeper than expected drop in initial jobless claims for the week
ended Dec 8 likely helped in improving market sentiment.
Indian equity markets gained as investor sentiment was buoyed by
inflation and IIP numbers. Inflation eased for the month of Nov 2018 and
the index of industrial production increased in Oct. This also fuelled
expectations of a rate-cut by the Reserve Bank of India in its Feb 2019
policy review. The new RBI governor held a meeting with a few public
sector banks to understand their problems, which was seen as an
encouraging sign by investors. Markets were also supported by news of
positive developments between U.S. and China on the trade front.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 both gained 0.42%
and 0.50% to close at 35,929.64 and 10,791.55, respectively. S&P BSE
Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap increased 0.82% and 0.65%,

On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Consumer Durables was the major
gainer, up 1.4%, followed by S&P BSE Capital Goods and S&P BSE Realty,
up 1.27% and 1.19%, respectively.
