four-month low. Wholesale price inflation was at 3.24% in Aug 2017.
Inflation in vegetables declined 20.18% as against a decline of 14.07% in
Jul. Inflation in fruits fell 16.40% in Aug as against a decline of 8.81% in
Jul. Meanwhile, inflation for onion fell 26.80% in Aug as against an

According to media reports, the government could auction power
supply contracts with attached coal supplies. It could also relax rules to
allow coal usage for short-term power contracts and start a payment
mechanism to enable power projects recover dues from state electricity
distribution companies. This may ease sectoral stress to a large extent,
the report said. A high-level empowered committee headed by the
cabinet secretary is looking into the proposals and will meet Sep 21,
The date, Oct 1, 2018, has been notified by the government for
implementing the tax deducted at source (TDS) and tax collected at
source provisions under Goods and Services Tax (GST) law. According to
the Central GST (CGST) Act, notified entities need to collect TDS at 1% on

The Prime Minister will hold a meeting to do an economic review after
the rupee has witnessed record-lows, according to media reports. The
rupee has decreased around 13% since the start of 2018 because of a
strengthening U.S. dollar. The fall has put pressure on India’s current
account deficit and crude oil imports. Economists have advised the
government to stay committed to the fiscal deficit target and sidestep

support Asian equity markets. Also, the Turkey central bank sharply
raising its key interest to control inflation helped sooth emerging market

lower note following intensifying trade tensions between U.S. and China
amid reports that U.S. could impose new tariffs on Chinese goods.
Hangseng fell 1.21% (as at 8.a.m. IST). Nikkei remained closed.

and mining stocks. Reports that another round of talks could take place

Concerns about emerging markets also eased somewhat after Turkey's
central bank sharply raised its key interest rate.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on almost on a steady note.
Gains in semiconductor and transportation stocks boosted the indices.
However, reports that U.S. President has instructed to proceed with
plans to impose tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese
goods capped the gains.

Indian equity markets closed the last session of the week on a strong
footing with benchmark indices gaining handsomely. The positive
sentiment was backed by encouraging macro-economic numbers, lower
crude oil prices and rupee gaining some strength. Government data
showed CPI and WPI inflation eased in Aug 2018, which investors believe
will take the pressure off the Reserve Bank of India to raise interest rates
in the near future. Also, news that the Prime Minister is going to hold a
meeting in the day to review the economic situation in the wake of the
sliding rupee, buoyed investors.
Key benchmark index S&P BSE Sensex gained 0.99% to close at
