According to Society of Automobile Manufacturers Association (SIAM),
Feb 2019 total sales in retail declined 8.06%, whereas wholesale sales
dropped 3.05%. This has happened due to weak consumer demand, which
has hit sales into the sixth straight month. In retail, passenger car sales
dropped 8.25%, while two‐wheeler and commercial vehicle sales dropped
7.97% and 7.08%, respectively. Dealers said inventory levels across all
categories are now unsustainable.
According to media reports, officials of the Central GST have found an
alleged tax fraud of Rs. 224 crore and detected fake invoices worth Rs.
1,289 crore by a group of eight companies. These companies are involved
in the trade of iron and steel products. A key suspect involved in the
racket has been arrested and Rs. 19.75 crore recovered from him, a press
release from the Hyderabad Central GST Commissionerate said.
Media reports said, Niti Aayog and the commerce ministry are working
on an index to rank states on their readiness for exports and promote a
healthy competition among them. The export index will rank states on
half‐a‐dozen key parameters, including their policies, ease of doing
business, infrastructure access to finance, and output, which will assess
the overall export market and exports from each state. There will be 30‐40
parameters under the six main sub‐heads, based on international trade
parameters but tweaked to Indian scenario.
Asian equity markets mostly fell after the British Prime Minister lost a
Parliament vote on her second Brexit proposal. A "free vote" will be next
on a no‐deal Brexit and if it fails, a further vote on Mar 14, 2019, will

representative said "major issues" must still be resolved for a successful
U.S.‐China trade agreement. Today (as of Mar 14), Asian markets opened
almost higher following gains on Wall Street in the last session and as U.K.
lawmakers rejected a no‐deal Brexit. Nikkei and Hangseng grew 0.41% and
0.14%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed on a positive note as
eurozone's industrial production grew in Jan 2019 after declining in the
previous two months. Stocks gained ahead of no‐deal Brexit vote.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed higher due to investors’ positive
reaction on unexpected increase in durable goods orders in Jan 2019.
Gains in biotechnology, energy and steel stocks boosted the indices.
Indian equity markets gained for the third consecutive session. A strong
rupee with support from healthy foreign fund inflows and hopes of
another rate‐cut by the Reserve Bank of India in Apr 2019 buoyed investor

0.36% to close at 37,752.17 and 11,341.70, respectively. S&P BSE Mid‐Cap
