The Ministry of Finance announced registration of one crore tax payer
under total revenue collections under the Goods and Services Tax (GST)
so far till Jan 24, 2018. Also, GST collections gathered momentum in Dec
2017 after falling for two straight consecutive months, and raised to Rs.
86,703 crore from Rs. 80,808 crore in Nov 2017.
The government announced to deposit Rs. 88,000 crore of capital to 20
state-run banks in FY18 and also prescribe a reforms package to make
them more accountable. Of this, Rs. 80,000 crore will be through
recapitalisation bonds and Rs. 8,139 crore as budgetary support.
Meanwhile, banks will raise Rs. 10,312 crore from the market.
According to a major credit rating agency, finance ministry’s move to
recapitalise public sector banks (PSBs) may help to mitigate the risks that
Indian state banks face because of weak asset quality and poor earnings,
but resolution of bad assets and continued high credit costs may harm
the sector’s near-term performance.
The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) has notified
of easing the foreign direct investment (FDI) rules for several sectors-
including single brand retail, non- banking financial companies and
construction. It has also mentioned that allowing 100% FDI in single
brand retail under automatic route would attract more investments in
production and marketing.
Dr Reddy's Laboratories Limited reported consolidated net profit of Rs.
3.34 billion for the quarter ended Dec 2017, down 29% YoY from Rs. 4.70
billion in the year-ago period. The decline reflects higher price erosion,
increased competition and the impact of adverse foreign exchange in the
U.S. and European markets.
L&T Finance Holdings Ltd’ s consolidated net profit grew 42% YoY to Rs.
384 crore for the third quarter ended Dec 31, 2017, from Rs. 271 crore in
the same period of the previous fiscal. The increase was driven by robust
growth in its rural lending and housing finance business.
