Dalal Street CapitalHeight9:45 am Demonetisation: I&B minister M Venkaiah Naidu asked opposition parties to not try scoring “political points” on the Centre’s move to demonetise Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes as it will help in containing inflation, making housing affordable but will hit people like unscrupulous arms dealers. “Apart from curbing corruption and black money, this will bring down inflation, land prices will also get reduced and home buyers will have happy news,” Naidu who is also the minister for Urban Development as well Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation said at a press conference here.

9:30 am Market outlook: The realty, agriculture and banking sector will greatly benefit from the surprise demonetization carried out by the government on Tuesday, says Rashesh Shah, Chairman & CEO, Edelweiss Financial Services.

There may be many difficulties across several sectors due to this move. But in theĀ medium to long-term, India’s economy will see a deflationary trend. The sudden ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes helps the government not only crack down on black money, but also counterfeiting of currency, says Shah.

He expects global growth to remain lukewarm with periodic shocks in the global market. Although he adds that he is positive on India and says it is very well insulated from global volitility.
