India’s consumer inflation accelerated to 2.92% YoY in Apr 2019 from
2.86% in Mar 2019 but slowed compared with 4.58% in Apr 2018. This
marked a six-month high. Food inflation grew 1.10% in Apr 2019
compared with a growth of 0.30% in Mar 2019. Fuel and light inflation also
accelerated to 2.56% YoY from 2.42% in Mar 2019.
Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) data showed
dispatches of passenger vehicles declined 17% YoY in Apr 2019 to 247,541
units, media reports showed. This has happened because of the slowdown
in the economy due to consumer uncertainty before the 2019 Lok Sabha
elections and liquidity crunch in the non-banking financial companies,
SIAM said. Domestic car sales declined 19.9% to 160,279 units in Apr,
while utility vehicles sales fell 6.6% to 73,854 units during the period.
HDFC’s Mar 2019 quarter net profit grew 27% to Rs. 2,861.58 crore
compared with Rs. 2,256.68 crore in the same quarter of the previous
year. This beat expectations. HDFC's total income increased to Rs.
11,586.58 crore in the quarter, compared with Rs. 9,322.36 crore in the
same period of the previous year. Net interest margin of the mortgage
financier came in at 3.3% for the quarter.
State Bank of India’s fourth quarter profit missed estimates. The bank’s
profit came in at Rs. 838.40 crore and it had to make hefty provisions to
pare bad debt. In the corresponding quarter last year, the bank had
posted losses of Rs. 7,718.17 crore. Provisions against bad loans surged
24% to Rs. 17,335.84 crore in the Jan-Mar period from Rs. 13,970.82 crore
a quarter ago.
Larsen and Toubro Ltd’s (L&T) net profit increased 8% for the Mar 2019
quarter to Rs. 3,418 crore, against Rs. 3,167 crore in the year-ago period.
This happened on the back of strong revenue growth and operational
efficiencies. Revenue from operations for the quarter grew 10% from Rs.
40,676 crore to Rs. 44,933 crore. For the full fiscal year, net profit stood at
Rs. 8,905 crore, against Rs. 7,369 crore in FY18. Revenue in FY19 was Rs.
1.41 trillion, 18% higher compared with Rs. 1.19 trillion in FY18.
International revenue was Rs. 45,109 crore for the year, constituting 32%
of total revenue.

over trade war between U.S. and China intensifies. China announced plans
