Indian equity markets started the week on a feeble note as investors
took stock of disappointing earnings by an auto major and braced
themselves for the upcoming budget. Markets are anticipating the
government could announce populist measures in the budget to appease
voters ahead of the elections. Fears are that such measures could put
undue pressure on the country’s fiscal deficit. Also, the non-banking
financial services sector’s exposure to the company that defaulted on its
debt payment in 2018 is still a cause of concern.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.02% and
1.10% to close at 35,656.70 and 10,661.55, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 1.84% and 1.99%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 552 scrips advancing
and 2003 scrips declining. A total of 160 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, only two sectors gained. S&P BSE Teck was
the major gainer, up 0.8%, followed by S&P BSE Information Technology,
up 0.42%. S&P BSE Basic Materials was the major loser, down 2.09%.
According to media reports, the government has empowered public-
sector banks (PSBs) to request lookout circulars (LOCs) against wilful
defaulters and fraudsters. This is being done to prevent big economic
offenders from escaping India. The Serious Fraud Investigation Office
(SFIO) has also been authorised to request LOCs if it feels the suspect
may flee from the country. Thus, CMDs and CEOs of PSBs can now ask
the Home Ministry, Ministry of External Affairs, Customs and Income Tax
Departments, Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, CBI, regional passport
officers and police to issue an LOC to alert immigration check posts to
stop a defaulter from leaving India, the report said.
Central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) will implement the 10%
reservation quota announced recently for economically weaker sections
in all direct recruitment vacancies from Feb 1. There are 339 CPSEs
employing 10.88 lakh people, excluding casual and contractual workers,
in 2017-18 compared with 11.55 lakh in the previous fiscal. An order
regarding the implementation of the reservation was issued by the
Department of Public Sector Enterprises.
Media reports suggest tax officials could examine the high usage of
input tax credit (ITC) to set off tax liability by businesses. This is being
done as authorities are concerned over a decline in GST revenues. The
issue of high ITC was raised at the meeting of the Group of Ministers,
which was set up by the GST Council to look into the reasons for revenue
The Reserve Bank of India governor will meet Singapore and Hong
Kong’s top global funds in the coming week to discuss investments. The
aim is to increase foreign fund inflows, media reports said. There could
be have 40-50 participants and it will be a closed-door meeting, which
probably the first of its kind, said the report. The governor will try and
understand what stops global investors from bringing in long-term
money into India. There are expectations that RBI could ease investment
rules for foreign portfolio investors.
