Stock markets on downward spiral, Fiscal Deficit, India vs New Zealand
With yesterday’s fall, the benchmark Sensex has lost over 1,000 points since the Budget announcement on Friday. Associate Editor George Mathew, who reports on financial matters for Indian Express’ Mumbai edition, explains why we’re seeing this downward spiral and what might trigger the stock market next. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman surprised all by announcing a marginal decline in the fiscal deficit from 3.4% to 3.3%. How will this target be achieved? Is the Centre faced with a hard task when it comes to tax collections? Ishan Bakshi, who writes on the economy and is a part of the Indian Express editorial team, explains. Last, what will happen if the India vs New Zealand ICC Men’s World Cup semi-finals match gets washed out.
