The finance minister has told scheduled commercial banks and non-
bank financial companies (NBFCs) to garner new customers in 400
districts in two tranches with immediate effect till Oct 15, 2019, according
to media news. The minister held a meeting with the heads of
commercial banks. The programme will be run in 200 districts from now
to Sep 29, 2019, where banks and NBFCs will be available to disburse
credit to retail customers, farmers, micro, small & medium enterprises. In
the next phase, another 200 districts will be targeted between 10-15 Oct.
The finance minister said the government is targeting to set up a Rs.
20,000-crore fund for stalled housing projects in the next one-and-a-half
months. These projects are those that have neither been declared
insolvent nor turned bad loans, media reports showed. The finance
ministry held consultations with real estate developers and property
consultants for their suggestions.
The finance minister told the media that the government has asked
banks to not declare stressed loan account of MSMEs as non-performing
assets (NPA) till Mar 31, 2020. Banks have been asked to recast MSME
loans instead of declaring them NPAs. She added that banks should sit
with the MSME and work out how best they can come out of the issue
even if more credit is to be given to the MSME. The minister met the
heads of public sector banks before making this announcement.
The finance minister said banks have identified some non-banking
finance companies (NBFCs) to which they can give money in order to ease
liquidity. The minister also said that the government has planned to
organise ‘loan melas’ to boost lending amid the current economic
Media reports quoted Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor saying
"there is more room" to cut rates given the growth deceleration and
stable inflation. He added that the government has little fiscal space to
introduce any countercyclical measures to boost the economy.

Indian equity markets went back to their losing ways as the oil crisis and
global growth slowdown worries kept investors on tenterhooks. The U.S.
Federal Reserve being non-committal on any further rate cuts in the year,
while cutting rates in its latest policy meet, and Bank of Japan’s status
quo spooked markets over a global slowdown. Tensions brewed in the
Middle East as U.S. blamed Iran for the oil attacks on Saudi Arabia. Back
home, the upcoming weekly expiry of F&O added to the woes.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.29% and
1.25% to close at 36,093.47 and 10,704.80, respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
and S&P BSE SmallCap lost 1.15% and 1.48%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 686 scrips advancing
and 1,828 scrips declining. A total of 114 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Telecom was the only gainer, up
0.17%. S&P BSE Energy was the major loser, down 2%, followed by S&P
BSE Oil & Gas, down 1.94%, and S&P BSE Bankex, down 1.69%.
Asian equity markets were mostly higher as the U.S. Federal Reserve cut
interest rates for the second time in a row in 2019. Though the U.S.
central bank was non-committal about future rate hikes. Today (as of Sep
20), Asian markets were higher in morning trade as U.S.-China prepare to
meet to sort out trade issues. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up
0.86% and 0.14%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets gained as the U.S. Federal Reserve cut interest rates
by 25 basis points, its second rate cut in 2019. The Bank of England
maintained policy status quo in the face of Brexit uncertainties.
U.S. markets were flat as U.S. and China are poised to meet face to face
in Washington after a hiatus in talks for some time now. Certain media
reports showed somewhat negative comments by both sides, which kept
investors anxious.
