YoY(%) Current Year Ago
Since May-17, MOSPI has revised base year of IIP & WPI from 2004-05 to 2011-12, and for CPI
from 2010 to 2012
• India’s consumer inflation eased to 3.15% YoY in Jul 2019 from 3.18% in
Jun 2019 from but slowed compared with 4.17% in Jul 2018. Food
inflation grew 2.36% in Jul 2019 compared with a revised growth of 2.25%
in Jun 2019 (2.17% previously reported) and a growth of 1.30% in the
same month of the previous year. Vegetables inflation softened to 2.82%
in Jul against a rise of 4.66% in Jun, while 'pulses and products' inflation
went up to 6.82% from 5.68%.
• The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has said on-lending by registered non-
banking financial companies (NBFCs) towards agriculture, micro and small
enterprises (MSEs) and housing sector up to prescribed limits will be
treated as priority sector loans. RBI said this is being done to boost credit
to the segment of borrowers who need it. Under the revised norms, on-
lending by NBFCs for 'term lending' section under agriculture will be
allowed up to Rs. 10 lakh per borrower.
• The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has permitted startups, banks and
financial institutions to set up regulatory sandbox (RS) for live testing of
innovative products. This is being allowed in areas such as retail
payments, digital KYC and wealth management. RS refers to live testing of
new products or services in a controlled/test regulatory setting for which
regulators may or may not permit certain relaxations for the limited
purpose of testing.
• Sun Pharmaceutical Industries’ net profit increased to Rs. 1,387.48
crore for the quarter ended Jun 30, 2019, against Rs. 1,057.29 crore in the
year-ago period. Total revenue from operations for the quarter stood at
Rs. 8,374.36 crore from Rs. 7,224.17 crore in the year-ago period.
• Eros International Media Ltd’s net profit fell 54.87% to Rs. 27.05 crore
for the quarter ended Jun 30, 2019. The company had posted a net profit
of Rs. 59.95 crore during the year-ago period. Total income during the
reported quarter stood at Rs. 210.29 crore against Rs. 223.57 crore in the
year-ago period, down 5.93%.
• Indian equity markets fell steeply mainly because of a global selloff.
Global markets have been under pressure from the past three sessions on
the back of concerns of global trade war, Hong Kong protests and a crash
in Argentina's peso currency. All this mayhem has led investors to the
shelter of safe-haven assets such as bonds, gold, and the Japanese yen.
Also, the rupee weakened to near six-month low against the U.S. dollar.
• Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.66% and
1.65% to close at 36,958.16 and 10,925.85, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 2.25% and 1.42%, respectively.
• The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 861 scrips advancing
and 1652 scrips declining. A total of 148 scrips remained unchanged.
• On the BSE sectoral front, only two sectors gained. S&P BSE Energy was
the major gainer, up 5.98%, followed by S&P BSE Oil & Gas, up 1.05%.
S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser, down 4.34%, followed by S&P BSE
Auto and S&P BSE Capital Goods, down 3.88% and 3.2%, respectively.
S&P BSE Finance and S&P BSE Teck lost 3.01% and 2.76%, respectively.
• Asian equity markets fell on the back of a slew of factors such as U.S.-
China trade war worries, escalating tensions in Hong Kong and Argentine
crisis as its President lost in primary elections. Investors took shelter of
safe haven assets like the yen, gold and bonds. Today (as of Aug 14),
Asian markets traded higher as U.S. announced it would delay putting
tariffs on some Chinese goods. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading
up 0.84% and 1.28%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
• European markets warded off initial weakness to end the session in the
green after the U.S. Trade Representative office said certain Chinese
items would be removed from a list of goods set to attract a new 10%
levy because of health, safety, national security and other factors.
• U.S. markets gained after the country decided to delay tariffs on certain
Chinese imports and completely removed some items from the tariff list.
This rekindled hopes that the two countries could reach a long-term
