  • Sensex rises 158 pts after roller coaster Budget day; Nifty below 17,650; Adani Enterprise slumps 28%

    The key equity indices ended a roller coaster session with tepid gains on Wednesday. The Nifty ended a tad below 17,650 mark after hitting the day's high at 17,972.20 in afternoon trade. The Budget for 2023-24 was laid down in the Parliament by the Union Finance Minister. Investors cheered after the central government announced a slew of measures to boost capital expenditure spending in country while simultaneously providing relief to highest taxpayers, all this coupled with reigning the fiscal deficit to below 4.5% of GDP by 2025-26. The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex advanced 158.18 points or 0.27% to 59,708.08. The Nifty 50 index lost 45.85 points or 0.26% to 17,616.30.

    In the broader market, the S&P BSE Mid-Cap index fell 0.96% while the S&P BSE Small-Cap index declined 1.10%. The market breadth was weak.

    Among the sectoral indices on the NSE, the Nifty FMCG index (up 1.13%), the Nifty IT index (up 0.93%) and the Nifty Healthcare index (down 0.03%) outperformed the Nifty50 index. Meanwhile, the Nifty PSU Bank index (down 5.68%) the Nifty Metal index (down 4.50%) and the Nifty Media index (down 2.70%) underperformed the Nifty50 index.

    ICICI Bank (up 2.18%), JSW Steel (up 2.09%) and Tata Steel (up 1.96%) were top Nifty gainers.

    Cigarette major ITC slumped as much as 6.6% in intraday after the government stepped up NCCD (National Calamity Contingent Duty) duty on cigarettes by about 16%.

    The stock later bounced 2.61% to settle at Rs 361.45 after the media reported that the impact of NCCD on the overall volumes of the company is expected to be limited.

    Adani Enterprises crashed 28.45%. Shares of other listed Adani Group companies slumped by 2.5% to 19.7%. The media reported that Credit Suisse Group AG has stopped accepting bonds of Gautam Adani's group of companies as collateral for margin loans to its private banking clients. This came after US-based short-seller Hindenburg Research's adverse report on the conglomerate.

    Shares of seven insurance companies fell by 0.52% to Rs 12.42% after the government gave a renewed thrust to the new tax regime in Budget 2023-24 today. Under the new income tax regime, individuals can opt to pay tax at the reduced rates without claiming the various tax exemptions and deductions.
