Indian equity markets extended the Budget day rally for the second
consecutive session with investor sentiments buoyed by the
announcements made by the finance minister regarding slew of measures
to revive the pandemic-hit economy.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 2.46% and
2.57% to close at 49,797.72 and 14,647.85 respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,714 scrips advancing
and 1,226 scrips declining. A total of 174 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, all sectors gained. S&P BSE Industrials was the
major gainer, up 4.23%, followed by S&P BSE Auto and S&P BSE Capital
Goods, up 3.95% and 3.91%, respectively. S&P BSE Realty and S&P BSE
Bankex gained 3.7% and 3.42% respectively.
The 15th Finance Commission recommended that the slabs under the
Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 12% and 18% be combined into one
uniform rate and that GST be rationalized to a three-rate system,
complemented by a 5% merit rate and a 28%-30% de-merit rate. The true
potential of GST is to generate revenue at 7.1% of GDP, while it currently
generates revenue at 5.1% of GDP. GST’s true potential is to generate
revenue at 7.1% of GDP, while at present it generates revenue at 5.1% of
GDP. The revenue gap thus stands at a huge 2% of GDP that approximately
translates into a loss of sales worth Rs. 4 trillion.
According to the preliminary data of the commerce ministry, India’s exports
grew 5.37% YoY to USD 27.24 billion in Jan 2021 as compared to USD 25.85
billion in Jan 2020.
In the Union Budget 2021-22, Finance Minister announced that capital
market watchdog, Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi), will be the
appointed gold exchange regulator to make gold transactions transparent.
Also, Warehousing Development and Regulatory Authority will be
strengthened to create a commodity market ecosystem arrangement
including vaulting, assaying and logistics in addition to warehousing.
According to a major credit rating agency, the Indian budget for the next
fiscal year is an attempt by the government to support economic growth,
but fiscal consolidation will pose a major challenge for future policymakers.
Currently, the credit rating agency does not see any material impact on
India's key credit factors from the budget, but the brightening growth
prospects of the economy would be crucial for sustaining the sustainability
of public finances.
HDFC announced 65% YoY decline in standalone net profit to Rs. 2,925.83
crore for the quarter ended Dec 2020 as against net profit of Rs. 8,372 in
the year-ago period. The decline in profit came due to lower income.
PVR Ltd has raised Rs. 800 crore by issuing shares through qualified
institutional placement (QIP) to a set of investors.
Asian markets closed in the green as investors remained optimistic that the
declining coronavirus cases and vaccine rollouts will support the near-term
economic recovery. Market participants also remained hopeful of the U.S.
stimulus. Today (as on Feb 3), markets are largely trading higher, following
overnight surge on Wall Street. While Nikkei is up 0.74%, Hang Seng is
down 0.35% (as at 8:00 AM IST).
European markets rose on the back of strong investor risk appetite, amid
rising optimism about additional U.S. stimulus and a likely momentum in
vaccination rollout.
U.S. markets went up, led by encouraging quarterly earning numbers
reported by some major companies, coupled with optimism about more
fiscal stimulus by the government.
