month and stood at 56.4 in Dec, which also contributed to the upside.

0.82% to close at 48,176.80 and 14,132.90 respectively.

liquidity situation, capital structure, debt servicing parameters, and capital
As per media reports, India's tax pie appears to have undergone a subtle
shift, with direct tax collections dropping dramatically as a consequence of
the COVID-19 carnage's disproportionate effect on revenues. The share of
indirect taxes, consisting mainly of levies on goods and services as well as
import duties, has increased, while the share of direct taxes, consisting of
corporate and personal income taxes, has decreased since 2020. Although
direct and indirect tax collections were not officially released by the
government, industry sources said that the share of indirect taxes in total
tax collections rose to approximately 56%, the highest for the time in more
than a decade. This follows a sharp fall in direct tax receipts of 26% - 27%.
As part of the Economic Times Global Business Summit Unwired Version4.0,
panelists from six countries-Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia,

further improve intra-regional trade and relationships, how different
governments have reacted to Covid-19 and the new investment
opportunities that start-ups in the region offer.
Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) posted a 30% and 25% increase in its
standalone production and sales, respectively, in Dec 2020. The company's
total production from its plants in India was at 7.27 lakh tonne (LT) in Dec,
up from 5.59 LT during the same month in 2019.

2020 as against 3,36,055 units sold in Dec 2019.
Asian markets largely closed in the green with investor sentiments boosted
by private survey results of Chinese manufacturing PMI which expanded in
Dec albeit at a slower pace. However, gains were restricted after Prime
Minister of Japan declared a state of emergency in the greater Tokyo area
to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Today (as on Jan 05), Asian markets
fell following decline on the Wall Street overnight. Both Nikkei and Hang
Seng fell 0.18% and 0.35%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).

rollout of coivid-19 vaccines in several countries.
U.S. markets opened on a positive note but soon declined rapidly due to
