The GST Council meeting over GST rate cut on electric vehicles (EVs)
and related equipment that was scheduled for Jul 25, 2019, has been
postponed as finance minister had to attend Parliament for the scheduled
passage of amendments to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. The

first half of calendar year 2019. The period saw deals worth $32.1 billion
compared with $74.4 billion in the same period last year. There were 600

seen in the first half of 2018.
As per a report by a global agency, imposing restrictions on cross‐
border data flows can severely impact the growth of India’s digital trade.
This trade has a potential to grow to Rs. 12.8 lakh crore by 2030. The
report estimates more than 200% growth in the total value of virtual
goods and services enabled by digital economy and e‐commerce from
present $58 billion to $197 billion by 2030. The report advocates free
flow of storage and processing technologies such as cloud‐based services
across the borders without any restrictions to take advantage of the
Maruti Suzuki India Ltd net profit for the Jun 2019 quarter fell 27.3% to
Rs. 1,435.5 crore from Rs.1,975.3 crore in the year‐ago period on the back
of a double‐digit decline in vehicle sales and higher depreciation and
amortization cost. Total number of vehicles sold by the company during
the quarter declined 17.9% to 402,594 units.
Punjab National Bank (PNB) posted in the Jun 2019 quarter at Rs.
1,018.63 crore on the back of lower provisions. PNB had posted a net loss
of Rs. 940 crore during the corresponding Apr‐Jun period of 2018‐19.

compared with Rs. 5,758 crore in the year‐ago period.
JSW Steel’s consolidated net profit fell 57% YoY to Rs. 1,008 crore in the
Jun 2019 quarter because of lower steel prices and poor demand.
Asian equity markets mostly fell as investors’ rate‐cut hopes from
central banks faded. This came on the back of the European Central Bank
maintaining status quo in interest rates and downplaying the risk of
recession. The U.S. Federal Reserve will meet at the end of the month to
decide its policy stance. Today (as of July 29), Asian markets opened
cautiously ahead of the U.S.‐China talks in Beijing later this week amid
low expectations for a major breakthrough. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng
were trading lower 0.41% and 0.63%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets rose on some upbeat earnings
reports from U.S. and Europe. Market participants also reacted to the
results of a key survey by the European Central Bank that said Eurozone
inflation expectations continued to weaken into the third quarter, which
supported the easing bias adopted by the central bank.
As per the last close, U.S markets gained following strength in tech
sector. Upbeat earning reports from technology companies supported
the upside.
