Fut-Feb/India-50)closed around 10375 on Monday(19^th Feb),slips by
almost 67 points (-0.65%) amid ongoing PNB loan saga coupled with
concern about MSCI warning to dump India, if it goes ahead with its plan
to desist foreign exchange (SGX) from accessing market data and does not
allow trading of Indian shares in foreign exchanges such as Singapore
(SGX) & Dubai.
Nifty-Fut made a session low of around 10290, but it recovered to almost
100 points in the last hour of trade quite smartly on short covering
ahead of FNO/derivative expiry after government promises appropriate
steps against such PNB fiasco from recurring in future.
Also some upbeat comments about Indian market by renowned “Market Guru”
Mark Mobius ignoring the current PNB jitters as “short-term noises” may
have boosted the market sentiment in the last hour of trade on Monday.
Indian market opened around 10473 on Monday, gap upfollowing positive
made an opening high of 10485, but it soon succumbed to intense selling
pressure on another news of big corporate loan fraud to the tune of
Rs.3.5 bln by Rotomac. Another PSB (UCO Bank) also disclosed loan
exposure to the tune of Rs.2.65 bln in the PNB fraud case.
*The PNB saga has turned political:*
The market is concerned about the overall impact of the borrowing &
lending mechanism and fear mongering among borrowers & lenders, which
may ultimately hamper normal economic activity amid intense media frenzy
& trial. The overall situation has also turned into a political game of
football among various political parties including BJP (ruling party)
and the INC (main opposition party).
The Indiangovernment is also trying to pass the buck to the central bank
(RBI) and has virtually show caused the banking regulator. Despite
slogan of “digital banking”, most of the public sector banks (PSBS) are
not digitalized to the full extent of their internal operations and risk
management. In the present case of PNB, their SWIFT operations were not
linked digitally with their core banking system (CBS), which paved the
way for this alleged “undetected” fraud.
Government (Govt) Asks RBI Why PNB Fraud Went Undetected Via Central
Bank's System; Govt Asks RBI To Identify Suspect In PNB Fraud; Govt Asks
RBI To Check Efficiency Of Process, Systems To Detect Fraud.
The whole modus-operendi and the extent of alleged fraud are not
possible unless some higher management people have direct knowledge of
it and gave verbal permission without going into record. The markets,
especially FPIS are concerned about such deep-rooted & politically
connected corruption in Indian financial sector.
As par reports: Govt May Ask RBI to Direct Banks to Tighten Credit Rules
for Overseas Loans; May Ask RBI To Direct Banks To Cut Credit Exposure
To Select Companies; May Ask PSBS To Conduct Special Audits On Large
Loans Given At Foreign Branches; Govt May Ask PSU Banks To Name Risky
Foreign Accounts Post-Audit.
As par reports: Several Banks Conducting Prelim Internal Probes on
Exposure to All LOUs/LOCs; Indian Banks Also Verifying LOUs/LOCs With
Issuing Branches To Check Fraud; Many Indian Banks May Consider Wider
Forensic Audits Of Riskier Accounts.
PSBS, such as SBI recovered to some extent on Monday late hours on news
that for Bhushan steel stressed asset (NPL/NPA/NCLT), banks may undergo
for only 27% haircut of the outstanding/write off amount against the
earlier estimate of above 50%. This could be positive for the banks if
such trend continues for the resolution of stressed assets.
Overall on Monday, Indian market was helped by selected private banks,
energies (RIL, Coal India) and telecoms (Bharti Infratel), while dragged
by PSBS, financials, automakers, FMCG, techs, media, metals (Tata steel
on Bhushan steel bid), pharma, reality, consumption, OMC and infra
stocks; selling was quite broad-based in the broader market.
The Indian market may be also concerned about FII participatory notes
(P-Notes) bubble as most of the high profile Indian black money may be
routed through this process.
