The govt has a lot to do to clean the mess in financial system

Posted:

The central government and banking regulator Reserve Bank of India (RBI) seem to have been at each other's throats the last few days. I'm not the least surprised at this, only at the fact that it took so long to happen. The latest development is a none-too subtle hint from the government that it might enforce Article 7 of the RBI Act of 1934.This rule, stripped of polite jargon, allows the government to arm-twist RBI 'in the public interest'. It has never been invoked by any government, including the British colonial one, in 83 years. There are at least 10 points of contention between RBI and GoI. But the trigger for the showdown was probably a speech by the central bank's deputy governor Viral Acharya in Mumbai on October 26.He said, "Governments that do not respect central bank independence will sooner or later incur the wrath of financial markets, ignite economic fire, and come to rue the day they undermined an important regulatory institution." Acharya began with a cricketing analogy, comparing the government's priorities to a T20 game and RBI's to a five-day Test match.He argued, logically, that no government could think beyond five years or less, because of the election cycle and all the sops, handouts and freebies that were dished out to win another term. RBI, on the other hand, was unconstrained by such pressures and could afford to think and plan for longer-term policies to strengthen systems, keep banks strong, manage exchange rates, inflation and interest rates.Trouble arises when myopia meets long-term vision. This is exactly what has happened. Finance minister Arun Jaitley says India's banking crisis — some reckon bad loans to have swelled to near- Rs 11 lakh crore — is because RBI did not discipline lending patterns during 2004-14, the two terms of the Congress-led UPA governments.Elections to five states will take place through November-December this year. Five months later, Lok Sabha polls are due. The government is on overdrive to display its achievements to voters. This includes a 180-m-tall statue of Sardar Patel in Gujarat that cost an astronomical Rs 3,000 crore, money that could have been spent productively on creating jobs.Concrete Proof But the economics of things — the 'real' economy in jargon — is separate from the economy of money and finance, right? Wrong. The two are linked inseparably. Think of housing, indisputably a part of the real economy.A note published on October 17 by investment bank Credit Suisse shows that in the top eight cities of India, housing sales have crashed from 2015 to today.In the second half (October-March) of 2015, 1,40,000 residential units were sold. In the first half of 2018 (April-September), this number came down to 1,20,000 units, a fall of a little more than 14%. Launches of new residential property have also slowed, from around 1,30,000 projects in H2 of 2015 to 90,000 in H1of 2018. This is a fall of nearly 31%.On October 26, a report by Kotak Securities showed the aggregate outcome of this dip in sales. In the top three cities of India, Mumbai, Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR) and Bengaluru, builders are saddled with huge volumes of unsold property, called 'inventory' in jargon.At 30.2 million sq ft, Mumbai tops the list of completed and under-construction inventory. Delhi-NCR, with 22.8 million sq ft of unsold property, comes next, followed by Bengaluru with 21.6 million sq ft. The top 50 property developers in India are saddled with 693 million sq ft of unsold real estate.Now, institutions that lend money to buyers and builders alike are mostly classified as non-banking financial companies (NBFCs). Almost every buyer with a mortgage pays up regularly on time. But builders whose projects are either stuck midway or completed but unsold are the real heavyweight borrowers — and defaulters.In good times, it's easy to sell property and keep borrowing more for future developments. But when the cycle turns, it's practically impossible to pay even the interest on their massive loans, forget the principal.Now, the thing about NBFCs is that they are allowed to lend, but aren't allowed to accept deposits the way banks can. So, NBFCs, in turn, borrow in bulk from banks, and lend on to builders and buyers at a slightly higher rate than bank loans. But when NBFCs don't get paid, how will they pay back banks? 66448646 Mend the Bend Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) — whose largest shareholder is State-owned Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), Japanese and Abu Dhabi financial companies, as well as India's largest private sector property lender HDFC —turned turtle through September, when it started defaulting on hundreds of crores worth of loans. Its total debt is Rs 91,000 crore, of which Rs 57,000 cr is borrowed from banks.On October 31, rating agency S&P said, "India's financial markets are facing a trust deficit." So, from the real economy of real estate, distress has spread to the heart of our financial system. This is no time for the government to gloat over its Patel statue or engage in petty tu-tu-main-main with RBI. It must get down to the real work of repairing the financial system.

Here's how Amrapali duped homebuyers

Posted:

The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed the Amrapali Group to disclose the names of all the companies with which it had any kind of transactions after forensic auditors pointed out that there may be a web of more than 200-250 such firms where home buyers money was transferred.The two forensic auditors, appointed by the court to look into the affairs of Amrapali Group said besides 47 sister companies, they stumbled upon 31 companies whose names were never disclosed by the embattled real estate firm. The court was also told that there may be a case of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), as large amount of money was transferred to a multinational company based in Mauritius. It questioned Amarapali Group CFO Chander Wadhwa as to how a group company paid his Income Tax amounting to Rs 2 crore, when he was earning only Rs 50,000 per month. A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit said money of innocent buyers could not be misused like this and asked the Mauritius-based JP Morgan company to file its account statement with regard to the transaction with the Amrapali Group. The counsel for J P Morgan said they had invested more than Rs 100 crore in the real estate business of Amrapali Group and they had a claim of Rs 168 crore from the reality firm. At the outset, forensic auditors Pawan Kumar Agarwal and Ravi Bhatia said besides the 47 sister companies declared by the Amrapali Group, they have initially found 23 companies and now another eight companies with which the reality firm had transactions. "We have no iota of doubt that not only promoters, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and the internal auditors of the Amrapali Group were part of the syndicate. Prima facie, we have found the relatives of promoters, CFO and internal auditors were directors in these companies, where the money was transferred," Agarwal said. "Initially, we found 23 companies where transaction had taken place and now we have found eight more companies. We anticipate that there are more than 200-250 such companies, where the money was transferred, but their names have not been disclosed by the Amrapali Group till now," he said. The court-appointed forensic auditor pointed out that in compliance with the earlier order of the court, the Amrapali Group had handed over 117 computers used by it, but 36 of them were not working and many were password-protected, which were not given to them. The bench directed the group to disclose the passwords of these computers given to the forensic auditors within three days and mark which computer belonged to which company. "We understand everything what is happening. We are not saying anything at present but waiting for the proofs and disclosure of details. They may hide the information for say seven days but on the eighth day we will have the information, no matter what," the bench said. The bench also asked the Amrapali Group to disclose the details of luxury cars owned by the company and their registration numbers after the forensic auditors flagged that a luxury car was given to the CFO. "It appears that they were not only in construction business, but into something else also," the bench said and questioned the CFO about the benefits he took from the Amrapali Group. It also asked the CFO to disclose by Thursday the details of the companies he had incorporated, the home buyers money which was transferred to these companies, on whose authorisation the funds were transferred and the benefits he took from the Amrapali Group. The court warned that any wrong information found at a later stage would lead to consequences and he may be sent behind bars. The bench then questioned internal auditor Anil Mittal, who told the court that the company had transferred around Rs 50 to Rs 60 crore to the companies he had incorporated on the direction of Wadhwa. The court asked Mittal to file a affidavit by Thursday, giving each and every detail of such companies and their transactions. "You all were chartered accounts and were supposed to be a watchdog. You were to render services to the society. People rely on you. Being in the know-how of things you incorporated these companies which acted as conduit for transferring the money which Amrapali legally cannot do. This is nothing but an effervescence. There is a tall building but with no foundation," the bench said. The apex court also refused to allow CMD Anil Kumar Sharma and two directors, Shiv Priya and Ajay Kumar, currently residing under police surveillance at a hotel in Noida to visit home on the occasion of Diwali. On October 26, the apex court had grilled the CFO and internal auditors of Amrapali Group over diversion of home buyers money and ordered that the company's CMD as also its two other directors would remain under police surveillance at a hotel in Noida. It had also initiated contempt proceedings against the group's Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Anil Kumar Sharma and its directors for prima facie violating court's order and thwarting the course of justice. The court is seized of a batch of petitions filed by home buyers who are seeking possession of around 42,000 flats booked in projects of the Amrapali Group.

Modi govt has a new message for WhatsApp

Posted:

India has told WhatsApp to station its grievance officer in the country instead of in the US, and that the messaging platform would have to trace the origin of messages if required by law enforcement agencies. This was conveyed to WhatsApp vice president Chris Daniels when he met Union minister for electronics and IT, Ravi Shankar Prasad, in New Delhi on Wednesday."On the issue of traceability, I emphasised that when we talk of traceability, we don't talk of decrypting messages," Prasad said after the meeting. "We insist rather on location and identification of the sender of WhatsApp messages when such messages lead to provocation of violence, heinous offences and other serious crimes." WhatsApp has promised to look into the matter and respond. But in an email interview to ET, Daniels said the messaging service is unlikely to give up on the "core" issue of maintaining its encryption standards, and will announce an India head by the end of the year. He added that WhatsApp wants a "level playing field" for its services in India.WhatsApp has been under fire in India over its platform being used to spread rumours that have led to violence in several parts of the country. In a previous meeting with Prasad in August, Daniels was told the company needed to set up a local entity, hire a local grievance officer, and act fast on complaints from law enforcement agencies and the government on fake messages circulated on the platform. WhatsApp was asked then too to ensure traceability of fake messages on its platform.While the company agreed to appoint a grievance officer and set up a corporate entity here, it has said multiple times that ensuring traceability would break its end-to-end encryption standard. The company appointed a grievance officer for India, stationed in the US. On having a local entity, WhatsApp informed Prasad that it has incorporated a company in India and it will begin operations shortly.WhatsApp has also partnered with Invest India through the Startup India initiative, and will invest about $250,000 as seed funding in the top five winners of the WhatsApp StartUp Challenge. An additional $250,000 will be directed to select entrepreneurs to promote their WhatsApp business numbers on Facebook and drive discovery of their businesses.A WhatsApp spokesperson said, "We appreciate the opportunity to meet with government leaders, including Minister Prasad who confirmed his support for encryption and the privacy of our users. WhatsApp is deeply committed to serving the people of India and working closely with civil society and government leaders to help address abuse on our platform. Our new Head of WhatsApp India, who will be named by the end of the year, will build a local team that can serve our customers in India as well as work with partners and government leaders to help keep people safe.

MoD empowers itself to select pvt cos for deals

Posted:

NEW DELHI: The defence ministry has empowered itself to select private sector companies for production of weapons being bought from foreign vendors under a transfer of technology (ToT) pact with a new set of guidelines that specify qualifying criteria, including experience and financial strength.The new guidelines under the defence procurement policy have opened up what in the past has been a bastion of public sector units (PSUs) that would be automatically designated as the nominated production agency for 'Buy and Make' category of purchases.In theory, the new guidelines empower the ministry to now select private sector companies for contracts in which a weapon system is to be mass produced in India after purchasing technology from a global firm. In the past, such contracts like the Kamov 226 helicopter program and the aborted deal for Medium Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) that had been won by Dassault's Rafale had Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) as the production agency. 66454375 The 'eligibility criteria for Indian private firms as production agency' were notified on September 27 but have only now come into light. These include instructions that the Indian companies would need to have a minimum of two years of experience in the sector, should be engaged in manufacturing and should be controlled by Indian citizens.On the financial side, the specifications are that the turnover the companies to be considered should not be less than 10% of the estimated project cost for the past two years and that none of its records should show it or its directors as a 'wilful defaulter'. 66454380 "The contract in buy and make category is placed on a foreign firm. The TOT (transfer of technology) is then transferred to a production agency in India by the vendor (sic). Since the technology is being acquired along with the procurement of defense equipment, the same is directly or indirectly financed by MoD and hence the decision to transfer the technology has to be done in a fair and transparent manner," the new guidelines say.It is unclear currently which all programs would fall under this category, given that the plan is to place most major orders through the MoD's strategic partnership program that is yet to fully take off. Industry experts feel that some upcoming orders for small arms in particular could be categorised under the new guidelines.Experts feel that while the criteria will kick start the process of getting the private sector in, this could also lead to complications on the process of selection. "In the past too, there was no formal bar on the private sector but as there were no guidelines, the public sector was being nominated as the production agency. In theory, this will help the MoD in selecting a private sector entity to be nominated as a production agency," Amit Cowshish, former financial advisor (acquisition) says.

Alibaba cloud sees a bright lining in data localisation

Posted:

NEW DELHI: Alibaba Cloud, which entered India only recently, is already growing at "multi-times" the cloud computing industry's growth rate in the country, a top company executive told ET.Alex Li, general manager, Alibaba Cloud India, also said the company, which has set up two data centres in India, sees a big opportunity in the Indian government's push towards data localisation. The company opened its first data centre in Mumbai in January and the second in September."India is a very promising market for everyone. According to Gartner, the cloud market in the country grew by 37% in the last fiscal year. But growth for Alibaba was much higher and multiple times of that figure. We have a very aggressive growth plan for India and it's a major market for us," Li said.The Alibaba Group subsidiary, which competes with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, plans to expand in India by striking more partnerships, widening its target base to include enterprises, and penetrating the government machinery. Li said the company's capabilities in artificial intelligence, big data and machine learning are its main differentiators.On Wednesday, Alibaba Cloud entered into a partnership with ONGO Framework, an IT and digital solutions company, to provide services to 100,000 micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in India by December 2019 as the first phase of its initiative.The company is also looking at working with state governments, after partnering with the government of Andhra Pradesh for a project. It is looking to target areas such as consulting, technology and SMEs through partnerships, said Li.

SoftBank arm, Essel group to jointly develop 500-mw solar park

Posted:

MUMBAI: SB Energy, a domestic arm of the Japanese investment powerhouse Softbank Group, has signed up with the Essel group to jointly develop a 500-mw solar park in the country, according to sources.The agreement will enable the Masayoshi Son-run Softbank Group to expand its portfolio further in country and is part of aggressive growth strategy adopted here, a source close to the Subash Chandra-run company said."It has won multiple tenders in the recent past and with this agreement it can further accelerate the development of its solar assets," the source said without disclosing the financial and other details like timeline and the place where the proposed park will come up.Essel Infraprojects, which is part of the Essel group, is into developing large infrastructure projects across multiple sectors and has been focusing on development of solar assets and enabling infrastructure and has planned multiple similar solar assets across the country."With this announcement the Essel group has further committed itself to development of renewable sector, the source added.In May this year, SoftBank Group had partnered with the now crippled infrastructure conglomerate IL&FS to develop over 20 gw solar capacity in the country by 2025.SB Energy has already won bids for setting up 1400 mw of projects in the country, including 300 mw in the Bhadla III Solar Park being developed by Saurya Urja Company of Rajasthan, a joint venture of IL&FS Energy and Rajasthan.The Japanese group had earlier this year tied-up with China's GCL System Integration Technology in a 60:40 joint venture for an Indian solar power venture worth USD 930 million, that would work on loping photovoltaic technology used in solar panels.SoftBank had in 2015 made a commitment to invest up to USD 20 billion along with Foxconn Technology and Bharti Enterprises in solar projects in the country. The government had set a goal of generating 100 gw solar power by 2022.As per reports, SB has made an initial investment of Rs 4,000 crore for these projects.However, as per reports, the partnership with IL&FS fell through as SB Energy is facing hurdles in acquiring land, clearances and transmission facility.SB Energy was scouting for domestic partners for executing upcoming solar power projects with capacity of 1 gw. Reportedly, SoftBank intends to invest USD 1 trillion by 2030 in renewable energy sector in the country.

Crude prices may have cooled, but Iran sanctions a big worry

Posted:

By Navneet DamaniCrude prices tumbled last week, with WTI ending down 2.3 per cent and Brent 2.7 per cent.The turmoil in US and global stock markets and the US dollar index hitting an 18-month high led to further drop in crude prices. The market is getting cautious ahead of Iran sanctions and we have seen that major players, including the US and the UAE, are increasing their crude supply. Meanwhile, those like China are increasing their stockpile import ahead of potential supply disruption.There are expectations that crude prices will harden on worries of tighter supply as Washington's sanctions against Iran's crude oil exports kick in this November. On top of that, data from Baker Hughes showed that the number of US drilling rigs rose by 2 this week to a total of 875, the highest since March 2015, which softened the prices.The inventory reportThe oil slump aggravated after US crude inventories rose by 6.3 million barrels, compared with expectations of an increase of 3.7 million barrels. Gasoline stocks fell by 4.8 million barrels, exceeding expectations of a 1.9 million-barrel drop. Distillate stockpiles too turned lower, dropping by 2.3 million barrels. Output remained unchanged at 10.9 million bpd, slightly below a record 11.2 million bpd at the start of October. Crude stocks at the Cushing, Oklahoma, and delivery hub rose by 1.4 million barrel. Net US crude imports fell last week by 3,35,000 bpd.Meanwhile, IEA forecast that US crude oil production will average 11.8 million b/d in 2019, which is 300,000 b/d higher than the September forecast. OPEC signalled that it may have to return to oil production cuts as global inventories rise, in a statement that may further sour relations with US President Donald Trump. Countries complied with 111 per cent of pledged supply curbs in September as compared to 129 per cent, which means production went up from August.Iran sanctionsMarkets are still not sure about how much oil will be removed from the market once sanctions start. For Iran, Iraqi oil minister reversed his decision to transfer ownership of nine state-owned oil companies from the ministry to NOC and reported that Iraq hopes to produce 7 million bpd and export 4 million bpd in 2019.US-Saudi tiesMarkets remained highly volatile, wary of the impact of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi episode on relations concerning Saudi Arabia, the US and other trading partners. Saudi Arabia continues to assure the markets that it would continue to meet customer demand for crude despite looming US sanctions that are expected to reduce oil exports from Iran.Signs of trouble?In China, two major refineries have not ordered any oil from Iran for November after the Chinese government reported that it has told at least two of its state oil companies to avoid purchasing Iranian oil as the US prepares to impose sanctions on the Persian Gulf state. The freeze on imports by China National Petroleum Corporation and Sinopec is temporary and purchases may resume depending on the outcome of negotiations.Natural gas showing softnessFor natural gas, prices came off after storage report which showed that US natural gas stockpiles increased by 58 billion cubic feet compared with a storage injection of around 39 billion. The US working stocks of natural gas totalled 3.095 tcf, around 624 bcf below five-year average of 3.719 tcf and 606 bcf below last year's total for the same period. In addition, the gas storage deficit year-on-year is 16.4 per cent and noted that the five-year average is at 16.8 per cent.In coming weeks, the market will keep its focus on US sanctions on Iran, which will take effect on November 4. The sanctions are kicking in after US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year. Meanwhile, any talks between China and the United States aimed at mitigating the trade row will be keenly watched.(The writer is AVP-Commodity Research at MOFSL)

Deepak Shenoy: Look long term, pick midcaps in these 4 sectors

Posted:

Deepak Shenoy, Founder, Capital Mind, remains bullish on pharma, IT, manufacturing and even NBFCs. As short-term volatility is very 66445824 66441979 66441007 high, these stocks can be picked up at very good prices, says Shenoy. Edited excerpts: Would the spat between RBI and the government have any market repercussions? The whole RBI thing has been blown a little bit out of proportion. Governments forever have had problem with the central bank. RBI is independent. It makes decisions on its own and to a certain extent, the government does not interfere. There are phases of overlap but in general, I do not think, RBI is strangled by the government. We have seen this with Subbarao. We have seen this with Rajan and we have seen this now with Mr Patel. There is a belief that the government is interfering too much perhaps on specific topics. I feel the government is not justified in asking that the PCA banks may be allowed to lend again or that some of the reserves of the RBI be brought back into the government. That is a very bad idea. It is just not done here. Economically and technically speaking, that is not the right way to do it. But there are obviously faults with the RBI in terms of the fact that they have no accountability. They have promised us a lot of things in the past. They have reversed retail access to government bonds. It has not happened five years after it was announced. A lot of red tape originates from the RBI. We have had lot of ad hoc decision-making as well. I would not go into specifics but these are topics where the government should be taking the RBI to task. Unfortunately, what is happening right now is they are probably trying to pressure RBI to do things which perhaps should not be done. As much as this lasts, it will be short term. I am sure they will come to an arrangement. Obviously, the bureaucracy knows about this and they will eventually get to some kind of middle space. This should only be a temporary problem. The issue really is larger. We are going to have NBFC rollovers of CPs in November. We are going to have elections coming up in November. We are going to have Iran sanctions and we are going to see how that affects our economy. Those are bigger chapters that will play out in November. What are your top two-three high conviction ideas among midcaps? I would not name them because we are still buying them but we are actually very enthused by the results. Some of the results in auto ancillaries continue to be quite good. The pharma and IT space in general has seen some extremely good results and some mediocre results. We are assuming that is a signal of a turnaround in these sectors. In IT, the stocks have moved up quite a bit but the recent correction means one can get them at better prices. We continue to like a lot of the manufacturing industry and the results show that whether it is an auto ancillary or pure industrials, we are seeing pretty interesting recovery in earnings, even from chemical companies which we thought may not do as well. So, earnings on that front have been good. Short-term volatility is very high and you are going to see deep cuts in anything you buy in all probability by December or January. If you take a longer term perspective, this is the time to pick up stocks in these sectors and even in the beleaguered NBFC sector, there are very strong players whose stocks have been beaten down. The banks are not going to come back and lend to everybody that the NBFCs have lent to and then wipe out the NBFCs. I do not think that is going to happen in the next 10 years. So there is opportunity there.A lot of stocks have corrected from the high beta space. FIIs have been selling while mutual funds have been buying. Mutual funds are buying IT and FMCG and more defensive names. Doesn't this mean a cautious approach? Mutual funds have an inherent bias because they are part of the debt markets as well. They have seen a few corporates pull money out of liquid or ultra short-term funds. They want to avoid financials. The debt crisis is going to get worse before it gets better, but we are starting to see that stronger banks and financial players continue to retain market share. Even though credit may slow down a little bit for the next couple of weeks or months, they will come back fairly fast. India needs 12 to 14% credit growth per year and 70% of the banking system consisting of public sector banks either cannot or will not lend. Overall financials will return, mutual funds interest will return once there is a little more confidence in the system. As much as possible, they want to avoid names with any debt at this point. Today, it is a one-day phenomenon. Let us see it actually play out. IT results have been good so far. FMCG has done better than expected because last year's quarter was GST laden there was a heavier component last September versus last June. I would have expected results to be much lower but we got better results than expected and there is a bit of interest coming back from that front as well.
