• Indian equity markets yet again ended deep in the red, losing the most in
absolute terms till date. The World Health Organisation officially declaring
the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic and rising number of infected
people in the country dented sentiment. The U.S. President suspending
travel from Europe to the U.S. added to the woes.

close at 32,778.14 and 9,590.15 respectively. S&P BSE MidCap and S&P BSE
SmallCap lost 7.84% and 8.72% respectively.

sharply to US$ 1.4 billion (0.2% of GDP) in Q3FY20 from US$ 17.7 billion
(2.7% of GDP) in Q3FY19 and US$ 6.5 billion (0.9% of GDP) in the previous
quarter or Q2FY20. CAD narrowed on account of a lower trade deficit
which stood at US$ 34.6 billion and a rise in net services receipts at US$
21.9 billion as compared with the corresponding period of last year.
• India’s Index of Industrial Production (IIP) growth rose 2% YoY in Jan 2020
as against a deacceleration of 0.3% in Dec 2019 and an increase of 1.6% in
Jan 2019. The mining, manufacturing and electricity sector rose 4.4%, 1.5%

provide liquidity in the foreign exchange market and is ready to take all
measures required to mitigate the risks from the coronavirus spread. It will
undertake six-month U.S. dollar sell/buy swaps, the bank said in a
statement. The swaps will be conducted through the auction route in
• Media reports showed the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council could
consider a proposal to increase GST on mobile phones to 18% in its next
meeting on Mar 14, 2020. This is being done to correct the inverted duty
structure being faced by the industry. At present, mobile phones attract a
12% GST rate, even as several parts that go into making mobile phones fall
under the 18% GST rate bracket, creating a case where the duty on inputs is
higher than that on finished goods, leading to an inverted duty structure.
• Asian equity markets plunged as the World Health Organisation (WHO)
declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic among heightened
fears over its spread and wide-ranging effects on businesses. Also, the U.S.
President's address on the coronavirus failed to impress investors. He put a
travel ban on Europe, except U.K. Today (as of Mar 13), Asian markets
opened with heavy losses as overnight U.S. markets nosedived and
coronavirus spread concerns loomed. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng fell 8.20%
and 7.36% (as at 8.a.m. IST), respectively.
• European markets saw their worst one-day drop in history, as investors
reacted to U.S. President’s decision to impose a travel ban on Europe and
the European Central Bank’s decision not to cut interest rates.
• U.S. markets witnessed a historic drop, worst since the 1987 market crash.
This came after the President and the Federal Reserve failed to ease
concerns over the economic slowdown from the coronavirus.
