Indian equity markets ended a volatile session flat. Investors booked
some profit as markets had been on a rally since the government
announced a stimulus of Rs. 1.25 lakh crore, which included cutting

economy after weak data from the euro zone deepened fears of a
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex gained 0.02% and Nifty 50 lost

According to media reports, the U.S. President said his country will soon
have a trade deal with India to boost economic ties between the two
nations. The U.S. President and India’s Prime Minister met on the
sidelines of the UN General Assembly session and discussed bilateral ties.
The government has notified 8.65% interest rate for 2018-19 for
Employees' Provident Fund Organisation’s (EPFO) more than 60 million
active subscribers. While the EPFO board had decided to pay 8.65%
interest rate to its subscribers for 2018-19 in Feb 2019, it was not yet
credited to their account as the finance ministry had not given its go-
Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corp. Ltd (IRCTC) plans to launch
its initial public offering (IPO) on Sep 30, 2019, media reports showed.
State-owned IRCTC sells tickets for Indian Railways and manages its
catering. The plan to launch the IPO has come immediately after a rally in
Indian stock markets, the reports said.

about 4% YoY during the first four months, after two consecutive years of
de-growth, the agency said.
The government has launched a multilingual app-based service - CHC
Farm Machinery for Custom Hiring Centres (CHCs). Through this mobile

tractors at an affordable price the way people hire taxis over mobiles. The
service will help local farmers use shared resources including tractors and
other farm machineries at affordable prices.
Asian equity markets were mixed as weak economic data from the
European region deepened fears of an imminent recession. Also,
investors awaited fresh cues in the U.S.-China trade tiff. Today (as of Sep
25), Asian markets opened lower after the U.S. House Speaker announced
a formal impeachment inquiry against the U.S. President. Both Nikkei and
Hang Seng were trading down 0.55% and 0.93%, respectively (as at 8.a.m.
European markets were slightly down as investors kept an eye on the
developments in the U.S. and on the trade front. Also, U.K.’s highest
court ruled that the Prime Minister’s suspension of parliament for five
weeks was unlawful.
U.S. markets declined as House Speaker got ready to announce a formal
impeachment inquiry against the U.S. President. The reason for
impeachment is a call the President made to Ukraine’s leader earlier in
the year where he allegedly persuaded him to investigate a Democratic
Presidential hopeful’s family.
