over the impact of rise in crude oil prices on the domestic economy. Such
concerns were intensified by media reports showing the Reserve Bank of
India governor saying India’s current account and fiscal deficit could be
hurt if oil prices continue to increase. Oil prices are at 4-month high after
increasing almost 20% in intraday in the previous session after the oil
facilities of a major Arab oil producer were attacked by drones.

and S&P BSE SmallCap lost 1.77% and 1.84% respectively.

According to media reports, the government has done away with the

funding in the infrastructure sector. Infrastructure debt funds are
investment vehicles which are used to accelerate the flow of long-term
debt into the infrastructure sector.
The Reserve Bank of India is considering bringing all payment
aggregators and payment gateways under its direct supervision. Under
such a scenario it would become compulsory for all the companies to
abide by the regulatory compliances prescribed by RBI on minimum net
worth, fit and proper criterion for board members and other entry point
norms on technology, data storage and security.
The finance minister announced a number of measures to boost the
housing and export sectors. The measures included a Rs. 10,000 crore
special window to extend funding to incomplete housing projects.
Introduction of a new scheme for remission of duties or taxes on export
product to replace the existing Merchandise Exports from India Scheme
from Jan 1, 2020, and revised priority sector lending norms for export

export credit under priority sector.

Hero Cycles launched Lectro's domestic electric cycle brand at Rs.

in oil prices and its impact on the world economy. Markets also awaited
the outcome of key central banks’ meetings scheduled in the week. Today
(as of Sep 18), Asian markets were flat in morning trade as investors
looked forward to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s two-day meeting that
started on Sep 17, 2019. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up only
0.01% and 0.30%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets fell slightly as investors observed the aftermath of
the attack on Saudi oil production. Markets also looked forward to U.S.
Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting.
U.S. markets were up a tad as investors stayed glued on the U.S.
Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision in its two-day meeting that
started on Sep 17, 2019. Markets are expecting the central bank to cut
rates by 25 basis points for the second time in 2019.
