Jindal Steel pays dues worth Rs 700 cr to Banks

Jindal Steel & Power (JSPL) share price rallied 4.3 percent intraday Monday as the company may soon come out of the clutch of joint lenders forum.

The steel maker cleared its pending dues of around Rs 700 crore to banks a little over a week ago, according to the company’s Chairman Naveen Jindal.

After this payment, the company may soon be out of SMA-2 category that it was placed under after its debt remained unpaid for more than 60 days.

SMA-2 is one step short of the account being declared a non-performing asset.

This could well pave the way for the Delhi-based steel and power producer to come out of the clutch of joint lenders forum.

Sensex off Day’s High, Nifty below 10,200

The Indian market is going through a Diwali cheer phase as frontline indices hit fresh record highs, backed by macro data and steady earnings trends in its first week of the season.

Having said that, these are still some early days as companies with good numbers initially are declared in the early part of the season. “Ex-financials, companies in our coverage should have 10 percent growth,” Krishna Kumar Karwa, MD, Emkay Global Financial Services told CNBC-TV18 in an interview.

The rupee trimmed initial gains but was still trading up by 17 paise to 64.75 against the US currency on bouts of dollar selling by some banks and exporters amid higher domestic equities.

The dollar index was trading steady at 93.14 against a basket of six currencies in early trade.

Growth in India’s consumer sector is seemed to have recovered in the July-September quarter largely owing to increasing urban demand and the festive season, says a Nomura report.

According to the Japanese financial services major, consumer firms are expected to report average net sales growth of 8.6 per cent year-on-year with EBITDA growth of 8.4 per cent in the second quarter of this fiscal. Growth in India’s consumer sector particularly the household and personal care segment was held back in recent quarters largely due to macro issues.
