Since May-17, MOSPI has revised base year of IIP & WPI from 2004-05 to 2011-12, and for CPI from
2010 to 2012
• Indian equity markets gained after a four-day losing streak. Positive global
cues were the main reason behind the surge as the number of new
coronavirus cases in China came down and many companies resumed work.
• Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 1.05% and
1.11% to close at 41,323.00 and 12,125.90 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
and S&P BSE SmallCap gained 1.34% and 1.41% respectively.
• The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,513 scrips advancing
and 1,016 scrips declining. A total of 178 scrips remained unchanged.
• On the BSE sectoral front, all sectors gained. S&P BSE Energy was the major
gainer, up 2.37%, followed by S&P BSE Healthcare and S&P BSE Oil & Gas,
up 2.12% and 1.61%, respectively. S&P BSE FMCG and S&P BSE Consumer
Durables gained 1.57% and 1.53% respectively.
• A leading rating agency has said a slowing economy and weakening
consumer sentiment will continue to weigh on auto sales. It said the
marginal improvement seen in the Dec 2019 quarter, driven by festive
discounts, may not sustain. Vehicle sales have been hampered by weak
consumer sentiment and still-weak availability of financing following
tighter liquidity at non-banking lenders since the middle of 2018. The
report said the sector faces extra challenges from the adoption of stricter
emission standards from Apr 1, 2020.
• As India leapfrogs straight to Euro-VI emission compliant fuels from Euro-IV
grades, it will start to use the world's cleanest petrol and diesel from Apr 1,
2020. India will join a select league of nations using petrol and diesel
containing just 10 parts per million of sulphur. This is being done to cut
vehicular emissions that is said to be one of the reasons for the steep
pollution in major cities.
• India has approved a plan to sign an initial pact on intellectual property
rights with the U.S., media reports showed. This comes a few days ahead of
a visit by the U.S. President. The U.S. has for long urged India to strengthen
protection for intellectual property and that has been a cause of friction on
top of trade disputes between the two countries.
• The government approved a Rs. 4,558-crore scheme to promote the dairy
sector. This will benefit about 95 lakh farmers. Cabinet, Information and
Broadcasting minister said the scheme will take the "White revolution" to
the next level. He further said that the Cabinet has also decided to raise the
benefit under the interest subvention scheme from 2% to 2.5%. Both the
decisions are aimed at benefitting the farming community.
• Asian equity markets broadly gained though the upside remained limited
amid renewed worries about the economic impact of the coronavirus
outbreak. Today (as of Feb 20), Asian markets opened higher with the
People’s Bank of China expected to cut loan prime rate to deal with the
slowdown from the coronavirus outbreak. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng rose
1.46% and 0.21% (as at 8.a.m. IST), respectively.
• European markets closed higher as a slowing of the rate of new cases lifted
sentiment. Also, many Chinese companies have re-started production after
a prolonged shutdown.
• U.S. markets gained on the back of strength in tech shares. Though
investors remained worried of the impact of the virus outbreak on the
economy, the lowest number of newly confirmed cases since late Jan 2020
