    The Ministry of Finance issued a clarification today, 31 October 2018, which said that the autonomy for the central bank, within the framework of the RBI Act, is an essential and accepted governance requirement. Governments in India have nurtured and respected this. Both the Government and the central bank, in their functioning, have to be guided by public interest and the requirements of the Indian economy. For the purpose, extensive consultations on several issues take place between the government and the RBI from time to time. This is equally true of all other regulators. Government of India has never made public the subject matter of those consultations. Only the final decisions taken are communicated. The Government, through these consultations, places its assessment on issues and suggests possible solutions. The Government will continue to do so, it added.

    India's finance minister Arun Jaitley criticised the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for failing to prevent lending excess in a speech on Tuesday, 30 October 2018.

According to media reports, tensions between the finance ministry and the RBI have risen since the bank's deputy governor said in a speech on Friday that undermining a central bank's independence could be "potentially catastrophic", in an indication that it is pushing back hard against government pressure to relax its policies and reduce its powers.

China's official non-manufacturing purchasing managers index dropped to 53.9 from September's 54.9, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Wednesday. A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below that signals contraction.

Markets were also digesting a raft of quarterly corporate results with several big-name companies set to report earnings this week.
