  • Sensex spurts over 600 pts; Nifty crosses 11,000 mark

    Key equity benchmarks surged amid broad based buying support on Thursday. Shares rallied after media reports suggested that the government is likely to roll back recently-imposed higher tax on foreign portfolio investors (FPIs). Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 8:00 pm tonight.

    The Sensex ended above the 37,000 level while the Nifty crossed the 11,000 mark. Trading was volatile on account of expiry of weekly options contracts on the NSE.

    The Sensex rose 636.86 points or 1.74% to settle at 37,327.36. The index surged 714.98 points, or 1.95% at the day's high of 37,405.48. The index fell 35.09 points, or 0.10% at the day's low of 36,655.41.

    In the broader market, the S&P BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.42%. The S&P BSE Small-Cap index gained 0.74%.

    The market breadth, indicating the overall health of the market, was positive. On the BSE, 1375 shares rose and 1033 shares fell. A total of 152 shares were unchanged.

    Among the sectoral indices on the BSE, the S&P BSE Energy index (up 3.15%), the S&P BSE Auto index (up 2.77%) and the S&P BSE IT index (up 1.98%) outperformed the S&P BSE Sensex.

    According to media reports, the government may withdraw the foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) surcharge through a notification or ordinance. The government is working on a confidence-booster package for investors that included a re-thinking on the long-term capital gains tax, reports added.

    Foreign investors have been selling extensively in the Indian equity market after the government announced levy of surcharge on super rich in the Union Budget. Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her maiden Budget speech on 5 July 2019, proposed to enhance surcharge on individuals having taxable income from Rs 2 crore to Rs 5 crore and Rs 5 crore and above so that effective tax rates for these two categories will increase by around 3% and 7% respectively. The effective tax rate on the highest tax bracket goes up to 42.7% after the hike.

    There are concerns that the increased surcharge on super-rich could also affect foreign funds investing in India since a same tax structures apply for individuals, Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) and Associations of Persons (AOPs). FPIs, including pension and retirement funds, educational endowment fund, etc, come in through trusts or AOPs route because it has been the most tax-efficient structure.
