“The government and RBI are making persistent efforts to moderate future inflation. Government fiscal measures like a hike in customs duty on steel and similar steps on other products in the future will help to control inflation. However, the hawkish monetary and fiscal measures adopted by RBI & Government will have a cascading effect on market & economy in the short to medium-term.”

“Markets gave up all its gains in Afternoon Trade today as it simply could not recover after the Export Tax imposed on Steel products with the Metal Index falling almost 9% to 5200 levels in Morning Trade. The prolonged Russia-Ukraine conflict coupled with its consequences and inflationary pressures weighed heavily in the minds of investors and traders. Prospects of additional market borrowings by the GOI in the wake of the tax cuts on fuel to tame inflation also came to the forefront.”
