close at 35,876.22 and 10,746.05, respectively. S&P BSE Mid‐Cap and S&P
BSE Small Cap lost 0.52% and 0.17%, respectively.

The finance ministry is all set to meet the non‐performing assets (NPA)
recovery target of Rs. 1.8 lakh crore by Mar 31, 2019, according to media
news. Recoveries have already touched Rs. 1.08 lakh crore with many big‐
ticket default cases reaching resolution. The reports said big‐ticket
recoveries due in Feb and Mar 2019 can together fetch more than Rs.
60,000 crore. Last year, financial services secretary said that recoveries of
about Rs. 1.8 lakh crore were assessed by banks, which were cases under
Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code and those outside it.
In order to incentivise effort to bring down recoverable arrears, the
indirect tax department has made ‘recovery of arrears’ a parameter in the
annual performance appraisal for tax officials. Recoverable arrears stand
at over Rs. 26,000 crore. Against a target of Rs. 10,000 crore for FY19, the
tax arrears recovery vertical of the department has managed to achieve
just Rs. 3,500 crore in the Apr‐Dec period.
According to latest Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data, the pace of growth
in bank credit and deposits has moderated on a fortnightly basis. While

121.22 trillion for the fortnight ended Feb 1, 2019. In the fortnight ended
Jan 18, 2019, deposits had increased 9.69% to Rs. 119.86 trillion and credit
grew 14.61% to Rs. 93.32 trillion, RBI data showed. The gap between pace
of credit disbursal and deposits mobilisation is growing bigger.
Asian equity markets were mixed since investors awaited progress in
U.S.‐China trade talks, which are going on in Beijing. Upbeat Chinese
economic data restricted losses. Chinese exports and imports data beat
expectations, growing 9.1% in Jan 2019. Today (as of Feb 15), Asian
markets opened on a negative note on downbeat U.S. retail sales data.
Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading lower 0.96% and 0.97%,
respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets mostly fell after U.S. retail sales
in Dec 2018 fell short of expectations. Market participants were also
tracking the developments on U.S.‐China trade talks and Brexit.
As per the last close, U.S markets mostly declined following unexpected
substantial fall in U.S. retail sales in Dec 2018. This increased the appealof
safe havens like bonds. Retail sales plummeted 5.1% in Dec 2018,
compared with 4.4% drop in Nov 2018.
