India Readies Budget to Soothe Voters after PM Modi's Shock cash crunch

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will present the most challenging budget of his tenure on Wednesday, as he seeks to appease voters still hurting from the radical monetary shock therapy that his government has administered. 

Get Two Days Free Trial from here and work with us click here http://www.ripplesadvisory.com

The 2017/18 budget comes less than three months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's bold and risky gamble to outlaw high-value old currency bills, which has slammed the brakes on Asia's third-largest economy and hit the poor particularly hard. 

According to one survey, a third of people say their incomes have fallen, with nearly a tenth saying they are much worse off. Judging how quickly the economy will recover is a tough call, making Jaitley's revenue projections a shot in the dark. A delay in the launch of a new national sales tax has added to the uncertainty. The Goods and Services tax (GST) is expected to improve tax compliance and check evasion, but the union and state governments have yet to work out its details.

RBI Governor Faces tough Questions on Demonetisation

RBI Governor Urjit Patel today faced some tough questions from MPs as he could not set a time frame for return of normalcy in the banking system even as the central bank asserted that Rs 9.2 lakh crore or 60 percent of demonetised currency has been replaced. Patel also could not give a definite number of old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 bills returned post demonetisation as RBI was still tabulating those.

Sources said the Governor was spared a tough grilling at the meeting of the Parliament's Standing Committee on Finance as senior MPs including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh intervened to say RBI as an institution needs to be respected. 

Congress MPs like Digvijay Singh wanted Patel to be specific in his replies on lifting of cash withdrawal restrictions and wanted to follow through with tougher questions but were prevented by Singh and others, they said. Patel, flanked by Deputy Governors R Gandhi and S S Mundra, explained to the members that discussions for demonetising high value currency notes between the government and the RBI had been going on since early 2016, and the central bank was in agreement with the government on the objective behind scrapping of the Rs 500/1000 notes.

The S&P 500 ended a choppy session slightly higher on Wednesday, helped by a rise in financials after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said it "makes sense" to gradually lift interest rates. The S&P financials index rose 0.8 percent, adding to gains late in the session following Yellen's remarks to the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco. 

Financials have rallied since the November US election on expectations of higher rates and of reduced regulations under President-elect Donald Trump. Goldman Sachs was down 0.6 percent and Citigroup fell 1.7 percent, however. Both reported quarterly results earlier in the day. 

The Dow ended lower for the fourth day in a row. The frenetic post-election rally in US equities has slowed in recent weeks as investors wait for Trump to work on his campaign promises. 

Investors hope to get more insight following his inauguration on Friday.
