Government data showed that India's fiscal deficit during Apr to Dec
2017 stood at Rs. 6.21 lakh crore or 113.6% of the budgeted target for
FY18. During the corresponding period last year, fiscal deficit was at 93.9%
of the Budget Estimate. Total receipts were Rs. 10.78 lakh crore or 67.4%
of the Budget Estimate, while revenue expenditure amounted to Rs. 14.62
lakh crore or 79.6% of the financial year estimates. In the Union Budget
2018-19, government increased its fiscal deficit target from 3.2% of
Budgeted Estimate (BE) to 3.5% for the current financial year. For FY19,
fiscal deficit is projected at 3.3% of BE, which is also higher than 3%
estimated in the previous budget.
According to a major credit rating agency, high debt burden of the
government is a constrain for India’s rating upgrade. In Union Budget
2018-19, fiscal deficit has been targeted at 3.5% of GDP, higher than 3.2%
estimated earlier.
The Union Budget 2018-19 has proposed an allocation of approximately
Rs. 14,500 crore for FY19 in order to augment telecom infrastructure
projects, which include an alternate communication network for defence
services. The finance minister allocated Rs. 10,000 crore for expansion of
telecom infrastructure managed by the Department of Telecom and made
a provision of Rs. 4,500 crore for Network for Spectrum project.
The government plans to amend the Prevention of Money-laundering
Act, 2002, through the Finance Act 2018. The government wants to make
the Act more effective and widen its scope. Also, it wants to remove some
procedural difficulties faced by the Enforcement Directorate.
Bajaj Auto reported increase in consolidated net profit by 3.8% YoY to

After the announcements of Union Budget FY19 on Feb 1, 2018, Indian
equity markets plunged heavily as investors closely followed the
developments on the implementation of the Budget proposals, especially,
fiscal deficit target. The finance minister had raised the fiscal deficit target
for FY18 to 3.5% of gross domestic product as against 3.2% earlier. The
target for FY19 has been fixed at 3.3% as against previous target of 3%.
Also, government’s proposal of 10% long-term capital gains tax on
equity gains above Rs. 1 lakh weighed on market sentiment. Further,
announcement by a major credit rating agency that high debt burden of
the government constrains India's rating upgrade further muted buying
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 2.34% and
2.33% to close at 35,066.75 and 10,760.60, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap

Asian markets traded mixed ahead of the U.S. monthly jobs report for
Jan 2018, which will provide clues on U.S. Federal Reserve’s future rate
hike stance. Upcoming key economic data in China also kept investors on
the sidelines. However, elevated crude oil prices limited the downside.
Meanwhile, the Bank of Japan raised its bond purchases as part of efforts
to prevent bond yields from rising. Today (As of Feb 5), Asian markets
opened lower following losses in the Wall Street amid a stronger than
expected jobs report that sent interest rates higher. Both Nikkei and Hang
Seng were trading down 2.34% and 1.82% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European market ended lower due to concerns of
rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve after release of upbeat U.S. jobs data
and disappointing result of a major bank in Germany.
As per the last close, U.S markets ended lower after the Labor
Department released a report showing stronger than expected job growth
and a jump in wages that increased the concern about higher interest
rates. Disappointing result from big tech companies also contributed to
the losses.
