Indian equity markets fell for the seventh consecutive session as U.S.‐
China trade developments dominated sentiment. The two countries have
gone back to exchange of strong words with the U.S. President saying he
would be happy to increase tariff on Chinese imports and blaming China
for breaking the ‘deal’. Media reports said China plans to retaliate with
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.61% and

Fast Moving Consumer Goods fell 0.27% and 0.1%, respectively. S&P BSE

According to a major domestic rating agency, crisis at non‐bank lenders
has led securitisation volumes to reach an all‐time high of almost Rs. 2
lakh crore in fiscal year 2018‐19. This happened as liquidity‐starved
entities sold portfolios. The volumes of securitisation, where a lender sells
a portfolio of future receivables, surged 140% to touch the Rs. 1.99 lakh
crore mark. The market was buoyant in the second half of the fiscal,
driven by the liquidity crisis which forced non‐bank finance companies and
housing finance companies to rely heavily on portfolio loan sell‐downs to
raise funds.
The finance ministry has started preparing presentation of the full
Budget 2019‐20 by a new government in Jul 2019. The ministry has sent
out communications to various industry bodies and other stakeholders
inviting their suggestions on direct and indirect taxes related to various
sectors. Observers said they expect changes in custom rates and direct
taxes as the Goods and Services Tax (GST) has removed most indirect
taxes from the purview of the budget.
The tax department has asked builders to choose before May 10, 2019,
the new Goods & Services Tax (GST) rate for ongoing realty projects. The
concessional rate, which came into effect from Apr 1, 2019, was set at 1%
for affordable houses and 5% for others, from the earlier 8% and 12%,
respectively. Developers of under‐construction projects could opt for the
new or previous rate, but now they have been asked to exercise this
option before May 10 in the prescribed format. This means, two people
buying identical flats in the same apartment complex but in different
buildings or towers could technically pay different GST rates. If the
developer does not choose the rates before May 10, then the new GST
rates will start automatically, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and
Customs said. The rules of the concessional scheme, including transitional
ones, will apply, it said.
According to media reports, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs on the
basis of a report from Registrar of Companies is examining alleged
diversion of funds from the books of Jet Airways Ltd. The Registrar of
Companies, which is a wing of Ministry of Corporate Affairs, has found
instances of Companies Act violation and some unexplained funds trail
while examining Jet's books of accounts.
Tata Motors has denied media reports of sale of Jaguar Land Rover to
French automotive group PSA could be imminent.
Asian equity markets shares declined as investors awaited with bated
breath the result of U.S.‐China’s latest meeting, scheduled for May 9 and
10, 2019. The meeting has become crucial in the midst of comments by
the U.S. President that he would be happy to keep tariffs on Chinese
imports. At the same time, there are media reports that Beijing has
announced it would take "necessary countermeasures." Today (as of May
10), Asian markets opened on a higher note despite increased U.S. tariffs
on Chinese goods due later in the day. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were
trading higher 0.73% and 1.63%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets fell on trade tensions between
the U.S. and China after U.S. President commented that China "broke the
deal" in negotiations. Also worries about Brexit weighed on the market.
The U.S. and Chinese officials are scheduled to meet for negotiations on
As per the last close, U.S markets dropped amid renewed trade concerns
