India’s Rating agency Standard and Poor’s (S&P) on Friday reaffirmed India’s sovereign rating at the lowest investment grade (BBB-) with a stable outlook for the second time in four months, as it expects Asia’s third largest economy to bounce back in 2021-22 from its projected record contraction in FY21 because of the coronavirus crisis. Strong electoral confidence enjoyed by the Union government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi may spur economic reforms, but the worsening fiscal outlook is likely to constrain the government’s ability to stimulate the economy, S&P said.
The country’s foreign exchange reserves increased by $3.378 billion to touch a lifetime high of $545.038 billion in the week ended Sept. 18, Reserve Bank of India data showed. In the previous week ended Sept. 11, the reserves had declined by $353 million to $541.660 billion. During the reporting week, the forex kitty rose mainly due to an increase in foreign currency assets, a major component of reserves.
Borrowings by the Indian public sector, which includes the central government, state governments and government-owned enterprises, spiked in the first half of the ongoing financial year. The surge in public sector borrowings, as they are collectively termed, came against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, which led to a sharp fall in private sector activity. Total borrowings across the central government, state governments and public sector enterprises rose to Rs 11.82 lakh crore until Sept. 23, data compiled by Bloomberg Quint showed. This is an increase of 58% over the Rs 7.46 lakh crore borrowed in the first half of the previous financial year.
The government is working on a Rs 15,000-crore production linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the pharmaceutical industry, a senior official told ET. The scheme intends to promote indigenous manufacture of complex generics, biosimilars and high value-add medicines, to boost domestic drug production and cut dependence on costly imports. The proposal by the department of pharmaceuticals, which is likely to go before the Union Cabinet for approval soon, will give financial incentives to eligible manufacturers on the sale of complex generic drugs and biopharmaceuticals.
Global investors which made a beeline to invest in Reliance Industries Ltd’s (RIL’s) digital arm – Jio Platforms – are now vying for billionaire Mukesh Ambani-controlled retail wing of Reliance- Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd Ltd (RRVL).

The Shapoorji Pallonji Group, which has decided to exit the Tata group, will restructure Rs 10,900 crore of its debt under the resolution framework for pandemic-related stress, a group official said.

Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd’s (RJio) recently-announced post-paid plans indicate the telco’s continued steps towards improving the industry-level average revenue per user (ARPU), according to India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra). The tariff differentiations between telcos — RJio, Bharti Airtel Ltd (BAL) and Vodafone Idea Ltd (VIL) — have also been gradually thinning away over the past nine to 12 months, indicating lowering competition intensity.
S. orders for durable goods increased in August at a slower pace than expected, restrained by declines in bookings for motor vehicles and military equipment, though a gauge of business investment rose more than forecast.

Ray Dalio used the latest installment of his ongoing series on the changing world order to identify clear red lines that, if crossed, could result in a deadly war between China and the U.S., but the real enemy in the conflict may lie within. While Dalio doesn’t think the current trade war has been “taken very far,” any attempt by China to restrict American access to rare earth elements, or by the U.S. to restrict China’s access to semiconductors from Taiwan or crude oil, for example, could signal that the current conflict was about to get a lot worse.
