    Market Viewpoint


    The equity benchmark indice Sensex has crossed 40,000 mark at a 220 points rise, while Nifty is currently hovering near 11,850 level.

    According to Sandeep Nayak, ED and CEO of Centrum Broking, a proposed review of key taxes such as long term capital gains (LTCG), securities transaction tax (STT) and dividend distribution tax (DTT) before the budget has added impetus to domestic investor sentiment.

    However, gains were capped as investors also took cues from weakness in other Asian equities amid reports of a possible delay in the US-China trade deal, traders said. Market is also awaiting cues from US Federal Reserve's policy decision, scheduled to be announce later in the day.

    Telecom stocks rise

    Telecom stocks rose early in the trade after media reports suggested that the Governement has formed a Committee of Secretaries (CoS) to find out ways to reduce financial stress in the telecom sector. The panel, formed under Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba, will suggest ways to make a favourable environment for investment in the sector struggling to keep up revenue.

    BSE Telecom was trading 2.05% higher, with Vodafone Idea rising 8% higher intraday, Bharti Infratel 3.45% and Bharti Aitel rising 3% higher intraday. This was followed by 2.9% hike in Reliance Communications intraday.



    The government's decision to form a committee comes a few days after the Supreme Court upheld the Department of Telecom's definition of Adjusted Gross Revenue basis which it calculates levies. The apex court also asked telcos to pay up Rs 92,641 crore to the DoT over the 16-year-old AGR dispute, which could impair the financial situation of incumbents battling the prolonged tariff wars and high-debt burden.
