Private banks to levy up to Rs 150 for cash transactions

Top-three-Private-sector-banks-in-IndiaMajor private banks have begun reintroducing transaction charges for cash deposits and withdrawals at their branches in a move that is being seen as one aimed at discouraging cash transactions and furthering the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government’s digital payments drive.

Banks including HDFC Bank   , ICICI Bank   and Axis Bank    on Wednesday began charging a minimum amount of Rs 150 per transaction for cash deposits and withdrawals beyond four free transactions in a month.

ATM intercharge charges have also been re-introduced.

The charges would apply to savings as well as salary accounts effective from Wednesday, leading private sector player HDFC Bank said in a circular.

The bank would also cap the third party cash transactions at Rs 25,000 per day, while cash handling charges would be withdrawn effective on Wednesday, the circular added.

The move was seen in some quarters as aimed at discouraging cash transactions and furthering the digital payment drive.

In his Budget speech last month, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had imposed a cap on cash transactions above Rs 3 lakh, taking forward the agenda to move towards a cashless economy.

For the basic no-frills accounts, maximum four cash withdrawals would continue to remain free and there would be no fees for cash deposits.

In case of ICICI Bank, the charges are same as they were before the demonetisation move announced on November 8, while there is an increase in such fees in case of some others.

According to details on ICICI Bank website, there will be no charge for first four transactions a month in home branch while Rs 5 per thousand rupees would be charged thereafter subject to a minimum of Rs 150 in the same month.

The third party limit would be Rs 50,000 per day.

For non-home branches, ICICI Bank would not charge anything for first cash withdrawal of a calendar month and Rs 5 per thousand rupees thereafter subject to a minimum of Rs 150.

For anywhere cash deposit, ICICI Bank would charge Rs 5 per thousand rupees (subject to a minimum of 150) at branches, while deposit at Cash Acceptance Machine would be free of charge for first cash deposit of a calendar month and Rs 5 per thousand thereafter.

At Axis Bank, the first five transactions or Rs 10 lakhs of cash deposits or withdrawals would be free and charged at Rs 5 per thousand rupees or Rs 150, whichever is higher.

It could not be ascertained whether the public sector banks have also begun imposing such charges.

When contacted, a senior official said there has been no directive from the government to the banks regarding levy of such charges.

Market opens at new 52-wk high; Sensex up 150 pts, Nifty eyes 9K


9:37 am Buzzing: Wockhardt tanked nearly 7 percent intraday as investors turned bearish after the company’s US arm received a warning letter from the US drug regulator.

The US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning letter to Morton Grove Pharmaceuticals, a stepdown subsidiary of the company in Illinois, US. “This would mean that current portfolio of the company will continue to be made available in the market. However, new approvals will be withheld till resolution,” it told the exchanges in a notification on Wednesday.

The warning letter comes as a blow to the company, which was struggling with issues of regulatory non-compliance. Three plants of Wockhardt in India are already under an import ban in the US. Its formulations units at Chikalthana and Waluj in Maharashtra have been under the USFDA’s import alert since 2013, while its bulk drug plant at Ankleshwar in Gujarat was issued an import alert in August.

9:27 am FII view: The employment data in the US does not show any spectacular progress, but remains steady, Willem Buiter, Chief Economist at Citi told CNBC-TV18. This may result in the US Federal Reserve hiking key rates when it meets in March, he added.

However, he said emerging markets are unlikely to falter as the momentum in the emerging markets steadily pick up pace in 2017. He said, for instance, the worst performers of last year, Russia and Brazil, are showing various positive signs.

The dollar’s movement will largely depend on the fiscal package that is proposed to the US Congress, according to the economist, who sees a slight uptick in the dollar in 2017.

9:15 am Market Check:

Equity benchmarks started off session at fresh 52-week high on Thursday, with the Nifty March futures hitting 9000 level, backed by banks, auto, technology and metals stocks.

The 30-share BSE Sensex was up 148.09 points at 29132.58 and the 50-share NSE Nifty gained 41.90 points at 8987.70. About 673 shares advanced against 106 declining shares on the BSE.

Tata Motors, ICICI Bank, Wipro, Bajaj Auto, GAIL, Hindalco and Tata Motors (DVR) were early gainers while Dr Reddy’s Labs and Coal India were under pressure.

The Indian rupee gained by 8 paise at 66.75 per dollar versus 66.83 Wednesday.

Tirthankar Patnaik of Mizuho Bank says he expects the USD-INR to range between 66.50-67.50/dollar in the near term with the State election results on March 11 crucial for its continued strength.

The dollar hit a seven-week high after hawkish comments from two Federal Reserve officials increased expectations that the US Central Bank is closer to raising interest rates. Futures traders are now pricing in a 69 percent chance of a Fed hike in March, up from 35 percent on Tuesday.

Asia markets traded mostly higher, tracking gains in the US where the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 21,000 on the back of President Donald Trump’s speech to lawmakers.

Sensex, Nifty Hold Early Gains; Mid, Smallcap Outperform Again

market-at-higher-point1-capitalheight10:15 am FII View: Gautam Chhaochharia, Head of India Research at UBS Securities, said that the longer India story remains intact. Demonetization doesn’t impair the economic trajectory in the long term. He said he is estimating a 3-6 month disruption which may have been priced in by many stocks already.

It is difficult to assess the impact on GDP rate owing to cash ban. “It is difficult to take a linear view,” he said, adding that he believes the GDP for this fiscal year could be about 6 percent, but it will go up to 8 percent because of base effect.

Nifty earnings growth in FY17 will be 5 percent, and 14 percent for FY18, he said.

FIIs have been net sellers in the last two weeks on buzz that the US Fed will hike rates and make borrowings expensive. Till a week ago, markets were EM driven, he said, admitting that over the last week India has been under performing a bit.

10:00 am Market Check Equity benchmarks retained early gains with the Nifty holding 8150 level, supported by banking & financials, auto, infra, oil and metals stocks. However, healthcare stocks were under pressure.

The 30-share BSE Sensex was up 114.15 points at 26464.32 and the 50-share NSE Nifty rose 37 points to 8163.90. The broader markets continued to outperform benchmarks as the BSE Midcap index was up 0.9 percent and Smallcap gained 1 percent on strong breadth.

About 1476 shares advanced against 390 declining shares on the exchange.

HDFC, Maruti Suzuki, Coal India, Reliance Industries, GAIL and Mahindra & Mahindra were top gainers among Sensex 30 stocks, up 1-2 percent whereas Infosys, Infosys, Lupin, Axis Bank, HUL and Cipla declined.

Japanese markets slipped in a mostly lower Asian trading session, despite the release of government data hinting at a stabilization in domestic demand. The country’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was steady in October at 3 percent, the same level as August.

Asia Markets Open Mixed; Nikkei Down, Kospi And ASX Trade Flat

kopsiAsia markets were mixed on Tuesday, taking cues from the US where a post-election rally appeared to stumble.

Traders also looked ahead to key global events set to take place this week, including a meeting on Wednesday between the world’s largest oil producers, and the release of the US nonfarm payroll report on Friday.

In Japan, the Nikkei 225 opened down 0.41 percent, while the Topix fell 0.34 percent.

Japanese shares were likely pressured by a slightly stronger yen, which traded at 111.94 against the dollar on Tuesday morning in Asia, climbing from levels near 113.00 in the previous week.

Major exporters sensitive to the yen traded mixed. Among automakers, Toyota was down 0.47 percent, Honda was off by 1.05 percent and Mazda fell 1.02 percent. Electronics maker Sharp was down 0.54 percent, while Canon and Nikon climbed 0.16 and 1.27 percent, respectively.

In South Korea, the Kospi was flat at 1,977.69, with shares of electronics giant Samsung up 0.18 percent. The smartphone maker said in a statement on Tuesday it was reviewing if it should transition to a holding company structure.

The announcement comes after US activist hedge fund Elliott Management proposed in October the company split itself into a holding vehicle for ownership purposes and an operating company, according to Reuters.

Samsung also said it will allocate 50 percent of its free cash flow to shareholder returns for 2016 and 2017, and said it would pay a dividend of 28,500 won (USD 24.36) per share in 2016, up 36 percent on-year.

Meanwhile, Australia’s benchmark ASX 200 was flat at 5,469.20.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed 54.24 points, or 0.28 percent, lower at 19,097.90. The S&P 500 index fell 11.63 points, or 0.53 percent, to close at 2,201.72, while the Nasdaq dropped 30.11 points, or 0.56 percent, to end at 5,368.81.

In the currency market, the dollar pulled back against a basket of currencies to last trade at 101.33, after falling to a session low of 100.64 earlier. That was down from levels near 102.00 in the previous week.

The slip in the dollar saw other major currencies trade higher; the Australian dollar was at USD 0.7492, up from levels below USD 0.7400 last week. The euro was at USD 1.0614, climbing from below $1.055, while the pound traded at USD 1.2409.

Treasurys also rose in the US on Monday, with the two-year note yield dropping to 1.107 percent, while the benchmark 10-year yield traded lower at 2.314 percent.

The pull-back across asset classes could suggest market watchers’ enthusiasm for the Trump administration was waning.

But some analysts pointed out that the change in direction was more indicative of short-term market moves, rather than any fundamental reassessment of what Trump’s economic policies might look like in practice.

“We are much more inclined to view the dollar-yen-led decline in the dollar, modest dip in bond yields and softer stocks as more reflective of short-term market positioning,” Ray Attrill, global co-head of foreign exchange strategy at the National Australia Bank, said in a note.

Oil prices gained more than 2 percent during the US session on Monday, ahead of OPEC’ s official meeting Wednesday.

On Sunday, Saudi Arabian energy minister Khalid al-Falih had cast fresh doubts over the cartel’s ability to agree a proposed production cut when he said the oil market, currently suffering from a supply glut, would rebalance in 2017 even without intervention from producers, reported Reuters.

Meanwhile, a Monday meeting between OPEC and non-OPEC producers was called off after Saudi Arabia declined to attend, Reuters added.

US crude futures closed up 2.21 percent at USD 47.08 a barrel on Monday, while global benchmark Brent climbed 2.12 percent to USD 48.24.

Sensex, Nifty May Stay flat; Idea, Tata Steel in Focus

stock market news capitalheightThe SGX Nifty indicates a tepid start for Indian market as US markets slipped the most in four weeks as Trump-fuelled rally fades. Asia markets were mixed, taking cues from the US where a post-election rally appeared to stumble.

Traders also looked ahead to key global events set to take place this week, including a meeting on Wednesday between the world’s largest oil producers, and the release of the US nonfarm payroll report on Friday.

Japanese shares were likely pressured by a slightly stronger yen, which traded at 111.94 against the dollar on Tuesday morning in Asia, climbing from levels near 113.00 in the previous week.

US stocks declined for their worst performance in nearly a month, weighed down by a pullback in the financial and consumer discretionary sectors as some investors booked profits on the heels of a record-setting week.

Back home, the 30-share BSE Sensex was up 33.83 points at 26350.17 and the 50-share NSE Nifty gained 12.60 points at 8126.90 while the BSE Midcap index jumped 1 percent and Smallcap rose 0.66 percent on positive breadth. About 1658 shares advanced against 936 declining shares on the exchange.

In a move to spur deposits, the Reserve Bank of India has eased current cash withdrawal limits of legal tender notes at banks and ATMs on or after November 29. New Rs 2000 and 500 notes will be issued for such withdrawals.

Idea Cellular may be in focus as it puts its entire tower assets on the block. It eyes a billion dollars from the sale of nearly 11,000 telecom towers.

Tata Steel has entered into an agreement to sell its speciality business in the United Kingdom. Liberty House will buy the assets for 100 million pounds.

Among asset classes the dollar edged down against a basket of major currencies surrendering some gains after a sharp rally that followed Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the US Presidential election. The dollar had surged more than 4 percent against a basket of currencies in the wake of the election earlier this month- but has now retreated from its 14-year high.

Prices pared gains after a source said OPEC experts ended their meeting on Monday without agreeing on concrete details of a planned reduction in oil output by individual countries. Details are supposed to be presented to an OPEC ministerial gathering tomorrow. With OPEC scrambling to rescue the deal, analyst are warning of a sharp price correction if the producer group fails.

Gold prices rose more than 1 percent, recovering from their lowest levels since February as the dollar and long-dated US treasury bond yields retreated from recent highs.

Govt Removes Excise Duty on POS Machine Manufacturing

credit_card_Government today removed excise duty on goods for manufacturing of POS (Point of Sale) machines that are in great demand as merchants are being compelled to use them in the wake of currency crisis.

“POS machines will be exempted from 12.5 percent excise duty and 4 percent SAD (Special Additional Duty) till March 31, 2017,” a source said.

A notification to this effect was tabled by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the Lok Sabha today amid uproar over the demonetization issue.

The notification “exempts Central Excise/CV duty on all goods for manufacture of POS devices subject to actual user condition and these exemptions will be valid till March 31, 2017”.

There has been spurt in demand for POS machines on account of cash crunch following scrapping of high value currency notes of Rs 500/1,000 by the government with effect from mid-night of November 8.

The POS machines are handheld devices which are being increasingly used by merchants to accept payments for goods sold through credit and debit cards.
