Indian equity markets extended the previous session’s rally, backed by
expectation over robust corporate earnings result for the Mar quarter and
vaccine optimism. Strong buying was seen in major stocks ahead of the U.S.
Fed interest rate decision.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 1.61% and
1.44% to close at 49,733.84 and 14,864.55 respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,792 scrips advancing
and 1,173 scrips declining. A total of 179 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Bankex was the major gainer, up 3%
followed by S&P BSE Finance, up 2.85% and S&P BSE Auto, up 1.78%. S&P
BSE Realty was the major loser, down 0.49% followed by S&P BSE Metal,
down 0.29% and S&P BSE Capital Goods, down 0.1%.
According to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), in FY22, India's economy
is projected to rise by 11%, amid successful vaccine campaign. The ADB has
warned that the rise in COVID-19 cases could jeopardise India's economic
According IHS Markit, in FY22, India is expected to develop at a rate of 9.6%
real GDP growth, though the tighter restrictions predicted above suggest
that economic growth could be further slowed, as these steps will result in
wage and job losses for employees, also substantial production and
revenue losses for businesses, especially in the services sector and the
informal economy.
According to a major credit rating agency, the second Covid-19 wave that
has consumed India has generated confusion, and a long-term outbreak
would stop India's economic recovery. If the government is forced to
reimpose large containment measures, the base assumption of 11% growth
in fiscal 2021/2022 may need to be revised. The country is already
experiencing a permanent loss of output compared to its pre-pandemic
level, implying a long-term production deficit of about 10% of GDP. The
Coronavirus pandemic increases the risk of market disruptions, in addition
to the significant loss of life and significant humanitarian concerns.
Negative credit spillovers to classified portfolios are still minimal, but the
situation is changing.
The draft National Electricity Policy (NEP) which, under the Electricity Act,
2003 is a guiding policy for planning power generation, supply and

Info Edge announce selling its stake worth Rs. 750 crore in the initial public
offering (IPO) of its investee company Zomato.
Britannia Industries reported 3% decline in consolidated net profit at Rs.
360.07 crore in the quarter ended Mar 2021 as against consolidated net
profit of Rs. 372.35 crore in the same quarter a year ago. The increase in
profit came due to rise in commodity prices.
Asian equity markets inched up amid caution trade as investors awaited the
outcome of the U.S. FOMC meeting later in the day for further insight into
the central bank's stance on inflation and bond purchases. Today (as on Apr
29), markets are trading higher in reaction to U.S. Fed’s decision to keep its
easy money policy in place. While Nikkei is closed due to public holiday,
Hang Seng is up 0.84% (as at 8:00 AM IST).
European markets went up as investors cheered a batch of strong
corporate earnings result and awaited policy cues from a Federal Reserve
meeting later in the day.
U.S. markets largely remained low after Fed left interest rates and asset
purchases unchanged in its latest policy meeting even as the central bank
upgraded its assessment of the U.S. economy.
