banking financial companies were hit badly because of crisis at an
infrastructure finance conglomerate.

According to the media reports, the Indian government plans to
announce lower than expected borrowing needs for the second half of

A major credit rating agency has raised India’s growth forecast for FY19
to 7.8% as against previous expectation of 7.4%. The agency stated that

tightening of financial conditions, rising oil prices and weak bank balance
sheets are headwinds to growth.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) announced that
instead of levying charges based on turnover slab rates, a nominal
regulatory fee of Rs. 1 lakh per exchange will be levied on turnover arising
from agricultural commodity derivatives. The move is expected to benefit
the farmers. Various steps are being taken by the government, SEBI as
well as the exchanges to promote agricultural commodity derivative
segment so that the benefits of agricultural commodity derivative are
passed on to the farmers and Farmers Producer Organisation (FPOs). The
market regulator also stated that exchanges dealing with agricultural
commodities derivatives will create a separate fund which will be kept for
the benefit of farmers or FPOs. This would help pass the desired benefits
from reduction of regulatory fees.
According to media reports, Vedanta Resources has received approval
from shareholders and the board for signing contracts for 41 oil and gas
