President’s trade comments. The President said U.S. will increase tariffson
Chinese imports worth $200 billion to 25% this week and put tariffs on

survey showed that India’s private sector expanded at the slowest pace in
seven months in Apr 2019 as growth in services activity softened.

0.97%, respectively, to close at 38,600.34 and 11,598.25, respectively. S&P

According to media reports, the ministry of finance may ask the capital
market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) to relax its
norms for entities that requires promoters to have 75% holdings in them.
Presently the government’s stake in many of the state run banks are more
than 75% and the government is considering lowering its shareholdings to
52%. The objective of the move is to further enable the recapitalisation of
state run banks. State run banks are considering to approach the market
for raising required funds and thus lower government’s stake in them.
According to media reports, SEBI may give approval to foreign portfolio
investors to invest in shares of unlisted entities. Such a move if adopted is
expected to benefit the start up companies and other unlisted entities as
they will get access to a broader pool of capital. Also the move will bring
about greater participation of foreign portfolio investors in the Indian
capital market.

of which 6.49 crore ITRs were filed for the assessment year (A.Y.) 2018‐19.
