Income Disclosure Scheme bags Rs 67,382 crore unaccounted money - The government on Sunday revised upwards the amount of black money disclosed under Income Declaration Scheme to Rs. 67,382 crore, even as it did not take into account two high-value disclosures. "After final reconciliation, the revised figure of actual declarations received and taken on record was Rs. 67,382 crore which had been made by 71,726 declarants," the Finance Ministry said in a statement here on IDS 2016. "On Oct 1, 2016, it was announced that declarations totalling Rs. 65,250 crore were received from 64,275 declarants, subject to reconciliation," it said. The Income Tax Department did not take into consideration the Rs. 13,860 crore declaration made by Ahemdabad-based Maheshkumar Champaklal Shah, which was reported prominently, as well as another made from Mumbai. "Among the declarations received, there were two sets of declarations of high value which were not taken on record in the above figure because they were found to be suspicious in nature being filed by persons of small means," the statement said.
India takes pride of place, crosses $ 300 billion FDI milestone - India crossed the $300 billion foreign direct investment milestone between April 2000 and September 2016, firmly establishing its credentials as a safe investment destination in the world. Thirty three per cent of the FDI came through the Mauritius route, apparently because the investors wanted to take advantage of India's double taxation avoidance treaty with the island nation. India received $ 101.76 billion from Mauritius between April 2000 and September 2016. The cumulative FDI inflows during the period amounted to $ 310.26 billion. The inflows in the first half of the current financial year was $ 21.62 billion, according to data compiled by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion. The other big investors have been from Singapore, the US, UK and the Netherlands. Commenting on the $ 300 billion mark, industry bodies Ficci and CII have said that India is perceived as a safe and dynamic destination by global investors. Ficci said that the liberalisation of the FDI policy framework, major national development programmes such as Make in India, Digital India and Skill India, besides increasing competitiveness, have made India the preferred choice for investors globally.
Gold imports to dictate size of current account deficit in H2 of FY2017: ICRA - ICRABSE 2.41 % expects India's current account deficit to be curtailed under US$20 billion in FY2017, lower than the US$ 22 billion in FY2016. With the gold import bill in October-November 2016 estimated to be nearly as high as the previous six months, the current account deficit in H2 FY2017 would significantly exceed the level for H1 FY2017. Moreover, the demand for gold in the remainder of this year would influence the size of the deficit in H2 FY2017. Principal Economist, ICRA Limited, said: "If the recent amendments to the Income Tax Act dispel demand for holding of gold as well as jewellery, the gold import volumes may decline significantly in the coming months. Assuming that the volume of gold imports during December 2016-March 2017 reverts to the average of around 45 tonnes per month seen in April-November 2016, India’s current account deficit would be curtailed at around US$ 15 billion in FY2017." However, if the volume of gold imports in the last four months of FY2017 is elevated at an average of 70 tonnes per month, driven by continued wedding demand, India's current account deficit could be as high as nearly US$ 20 billion in FY2017," she added.
Nikkei services index slumps to 46.7; biggest monthly fall since November 2008 - India’s services sector contracted sharply in November as lack of cash following the shock demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes disrupted demand, ending 16 months of expansion. The Nikkei India Services Business Activity Index slumped to 46.7 in November from 54.5 in October, falling below the crucial 50 mark that separates expansion from contraction, providing the first evidence of economic dislocation due to the currency switch. It’s the first time since June 2015 that the index has gone below 50. But sentiment is buoyant — business confidence is at a three-month high — with the survey’s respondents expecting a rebound once cash supplies stabilise and the government achieves its aim of tackling black money. The latest set of gloomy PMI figures for the Indian service sector shows that companies were heavily impacted by Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes ban,” said Pollyanna De Lima, economist at Markit and author of the report.
RBI lowers growth forecast to 7.1% - The Reserve Bank today cut the economy's expansion forecast for current fiscal to 7.1 per cent, from 7.6 per cent earlier, saying that short-term disruption in economic activity and demand compression arising out of demonetisation have led to downside risks to growth. It said that in the near term the risks could travel through "short-run disruptions in economic activity" in cash- intensive sectors such as retail trade, hotels and restaurants and transportation, and in the unorganised sector and aggregate demand compression associated with adverse wealth effects. Incorporating the expected loss of growth momentum in Q3 and waning effects in Q4 alongside the boost to consumption demand from higher agricultural output and the implementation of the 7th CPC award, GVA growth for 2016-17 is revised down from 7.6 per cent to 7.1 per cent, with evenly balanced risks," the RBI said in the fifth bi-monthly Monetary Policy Statement for the current fiscal.

? TOP BANKING AND FINANCIAL NEWS OF THE WEEK
Banks are so busy trying to cope with the cash crunch caused by demonetisation that the critical task of going after bad loans is falling by the wayside. Not only that, lenders are worried that the concomitant slump in asset values means that collateral is depreciating, making things worse. Earnings in December quarter could therefore look even worse than they’ve been in the past few quarters, not due to a rise in defaults but because decisions are pending on debt restructuring and the conversion of loans into equity. Balance sheets have suffered ever since the Reserve Bank of India last year started pushing banks to recognise bad loans, provision for them and set their house in order. Lenders have to decide on debt recasts to the tune of more than Rs. 1 lakh crore, including those of Essar Steel, Bhushan Steel, ABG Shipyard and scores of others as officials struggle to meet customers’ need for cash, said three people with knowledge of the matter.
The RBI today told the Delhi High Court that the cap on free-of-charge withdrawals from ATMs by banking customers was a "policy decision" and the court should not interfere in it. The Reserve Bank of India counsel also raised the issue of "maintainability" of the petition which has sought directions to allow banking customers to make unlimited number of transactions free of any charges on their own bank ATMs. "It is a policy decision. Why should the court interfere in it? They are challenging the circular of the RBI. I am challenging the maintainability of this plea," the RBI counsel told a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal.
Yes Bank Limited has partnered cab aggregator Ola to set up mobile ATMs across 30 locations in the country that will allow people to withdraw up to Rs 2,000 per card. The Point of Sale enabled ATMs will be stationed in Ola cabs from where customers of any bank can withdraw the amount, Yes Bank said. The service will be available in over 30 locations across 10 cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Pune, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Jaipur. "This partnership is being done with an aim to ease the process of cash withdrawals for citizens across the country and provide seamless service to the customers with additional mobile infrastructure powered by Ola", said the bank in a release.
For the first time, the income-tax department will use big data analytical tools to go through personal bank deposits to segregate black money holders from genuine tax-payers, two people in the know have said. While the government has used big data analytical tools for corporate tax reporting in some cases in the past, this is the first time that it will use analytics on such a large scale to sieve through personal taxes. “It’s practically impossible for tax officials to go through all the data obtained from banks and compare it with other tax-related data. Analytics is being used to look at discrepancies. This would then be scrutinised by experienced tax officials,” a person close to the development said.
In a bid to speed up small value online transactions, the RBI today relaxed norms for additional factor of authentication for payments up to Rs 2,000. Relaxing the norms for AFA requirement for transactions up to Rs 2,000 for online card not present transactions, the RBI said only authorised card networks will provide such payment authentication solutions with participation of card issuing and acquiring banks. "The relaxation for AFA under such solutions shall be applicable for card not present transactions for a maximum value of Rs. 2,000 per transaction across all merchant categories. Banks and card networks are free to facilitate their customers to set lower per transaction limits," RBI said.
Two large commercial banks, Bank of India and Bank of Baroda have lowered lending rates by 5 to 20 basis points while country’s largest bank, State Bank of India has said that the bank will pass the benefit of lower rates if RBI removes incremental cash reserve ratio- slice of deposits that banks that does not earn any interest and is parked with RBI-imposed on banks.
While appreciating the Reserve Bank's move to withdraw the incremental 100 per cent cash reserve ratio from the weekend, bankers were today disappointed by the decision to keep the key rates unchanged. With enough liquidity in the system, lending and deposit rates are likely to fall further. In the fifth bi-monthly monetary policy today, the RBI and the MPC unanimously left the repo rate unchanged at 6.25 per cent, contrary to expectation of at least 25 bps reduction.
