Key Market News

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is considering either directing stock exchanges to stop giving data feed services to entities trading on exchanges abroad or levy higher fees on the traders, according to a report in Mint. According to the report, two sources say these options are a way of preventing the Indian derivatives business from going offshore.

Agriculture income may fall by up to 25% in the medium term because climate change will hit crop yields, making it imperative to replace power and fertiliser subsidies by direct income support and to drastically expand irrigation, the Economic Survey said. Agriculture accounts for 16% of GDP and 49% of employment in India, making it crucial in the overall economy.
