Indian equities fell in March as current business sentiment sagged to an 11-month low. Meanwhile, tensions in the Middle East and speculation over the path of US interest rates heightened global risk aversion.
The Reserve Bank of India announced the year’s second 25 basis-point interest rate cut, in another unscheduled meeting.
Encouragingly, the opposition-controlled upper house passed both the long-delayed law to raise the limit on foreign ownership of life insurance companies, and the coal bill.
