The Indian government has revised the India-Mauritius tax treaty, ending tax relief for foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) originating from Mauritius.

Jefferies India Initiates Coverage on IDFC First Bank with Strong Buy Rating and Raised Target Price

Jefferies India recently began covering IDFC First Bank, issuing a 'buy' rating and setting a target price of Rs 100 per share, marking a 26 percent increase from the bank's current market price. Jefferies highlighted IDFC First Bank’s robust growth trajectory in retail deposits, which increased by over Rs 50,000 crore between March 2021 and December 2023, showcasing a 30 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). The bank has been expanding its lending operations across retail, rural, and SME sectors and diversifying its corporate portfolio beyond infrastructure loans. Jefferies predicts a continued strong deposit growth at a 28 percent CAGR from FY24 to FY27, which will support the bank's expansion and bond repayments. It also forecasts a decrease in cost pressures as high-cost bonds reduce significantly by March 2026. Credit growth is expected to maintain a healthy 22 percent CAGR, driven by diverse lending sectors. The Loan-to-Deposit Ratio (LDR) is projected to decline significantly by FY27. 

ADB Optimistic About India's Economic Growth, Revises GDP Forecast to 7%

On April 11, 2024, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) updated its GDP growth forecast for India for the fiscal year 2024-25, raising it to 7 percent from an earlier estimate of 6.7 percent. This adjustment reflects increased confidence in India’s economic trajectory, buoyed by strong investment activities in both public and private sectors, and a notable improvement in consumer demand. These factors are expected to drive significant economic expansion, further supported by the steady performance of the manufacturing and services sectors. Additionally, the ADB anticipates a normal monsoon, which will bolster agricultural output and rural incomes, enhancing overall economic stability. The bank also projects a favourable inflation trend and a modest recovery in exports, despite global economic challenges. While acknowledging potential moderation, the ADB remains positive about India's growth prospects, projecting a further increase to 7.2 percent in FY 2025-26.
