commodity price and the disappointing U.S. data.

to close at 50,889.76 and 14,981.75 respectively.

• The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) published detailed guidelines to tighten
India's digital payments infrastructure and improve security, control and
enforcement among banks, gateways, wallets and other non-banking
entities that are at the vanguard of helping New Delhi achieve its goal of a
'less-cash' economy. The laws apply specifically to scheduled commercial
banks, small finance banks, payment banks and NBFCs issuing credit cards.
The new set of standards also lays down the requirements under which
controlled entities, such as mobile applications, payment operators and
gateways, can form partnerships and communicate with third-party apps
and ecosystem players.
• According to the labour ministry, retail inflation for farm workers and rural
labourers eased 2.17% and 3.25%, respectively, in Jan 2021 as against
2.35% and 3.34%, respectively, in Dec 2020. The decrease came mainly due
to lower prices of certain food items.

discussion announced that both as Comprehensive Strategic Partners
should work together on shared problems such as COVID-19 and a stable
and prosperous Indo-Pacific.
• The Ministry of Aviation and the Directorate of Civil Aviation granted

a swifter economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Today (as on

unchanged over the weekend. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng are up 1.40%
and 1.39% (as at 8:00 AM IST), respectively.
• European markets largely closed higher with investors taking positive cues
from quarterly earnings reports and the latest batch of economic data from
the euro area and the U.S.
• U.S. markets closed flat as positive impact of the optimism about more
fiscal stimulus measures was neutralised by jump in 10-year Treasury yield.
