Market Update 25th October,2017
Indian equity benchmarks surged to record highs powered by a rally in government-owned banks which came in high demand a day after government announced Rs 2.11 lakh crore recapitalisation package to strengthen the NPA-hit public sector banks.
The S&P BSE Sensex rose 1.33 percent or 435 points to 33,042 and the NSE Nifty 50 Index advanced 0.86 percent or 88 points to 10,295.
Nine out of 11 sector gauges compiled by the National Stock Exchange ended higher led by the Nifty PSU Bank Index’s 30 percent surge, its biggest single day gain since inception. On the other hand, Nifty Pharma Index was the top sectoral loser, down 1.5 percent.
PSU Bank Index Gains Most Since Inception
Shares of the government-owned lenders were witnessing strong buying interest after the government on Tuesday unveiled an unprecedented Rs 2.11 lakh crore two-year road map for strengthening NPA-hit public sector banks, which includes re-capitalisation bonds, budgetary support, and equity dilution.
The Nifty PSU Bank Index gained as much as 24 percent, the most since inception, to 3,836.
The capital infusion, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, will be accompanied by reforms to enable the state-owned banks to play major role in the financial system and give a strong push to the job-creating MSME sector.

“Now the government has infused unprecedented amount to recapitalise PSU banks, it will lead to a re-rating of state-run lenders,” AK Prabhakar, head of research at IDBI Capital Market told BloombergQuint by phone.
PSU Banks were ignored for a long time and now there will be a shift of market share to PSU banks from NBFCs and private sector lenders as they already have a well-established branch and franchise network, added Prabhakar.
