The Reserve Bank of India governor said the bank will be proactive in
dealing with threats stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. The bank
will assess the potential impact on India by the next rate decision, which is
due Apr 3, 2020, the governor told the media.
Media reports showed the income tax department has detected defaults
on tax deducted at sources (TDS) by prominent companies. The suspects
include a telecom operator, several large hospitals, a real estate group and
a major oil company. The defaults run into hundreds of crores, the
department said in a statement. TDS payments to the government is about
45% of the total direct tax collection. According to the rules, TDS has to be
paid to the central government within seven days from the end of the
month in which the deduction is made.
The ministry of corporate affairs has launched a one-time amnesty scheme
for Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) companies that have failed to file the
requisite statutory documents such as annual statements, change in
directors, etc. This will enable ease of doing business and cleanse the
system. It provides these companies a one-time relaxation in payment of
additional fees and immunity from prosecution.
The cabinet has approved a proposal for direct listing of Indian companies
abroad. With this, India’s start-ups, unicorns and small firms will now have
greater access to overseas capital. The cabinet also cleared 72 amendments
to the Companies Act, covering 65 sections to decriminalise various
offences and facilitate ease of doing business. Firms that have a spending
obligation of less than Rs. 50 lakh under CSR would no longer have to
constitute CSR committees.
Asian equity markets went up following overnight gains at the Wall Street

virus outbreak. Today (as of Mar 6), Asian markets opened lower amid
coronavirus outbreak concerns. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng declined 1.80%
and 1.38% (as at 8.a.m. IST), respectively.

and travel restrictions and number of infected cases kept crawling up.
U.S. markets declined as fears about the coronavirus disrupting the global
economy continued to haunt investors. The 10-year Treasury yield fell to an
all-time low.
