    ET View: HDFC merger spells consolidation in India's private banking space

    HDFC Bank, in turn, can use its heftier balance sheet to write bigger loan cheques. The costs of the merger have been brought down by the recent streamlining of reporting and delinquency provisioning rules for non-bank finance companies and banks. And HDFC’s exposure to affordable housing and micro-lending makes it easier for its loan book to sit within the development finance requirements of HDFC Bank.

    ET View: A bold move to bury the retro tax ghost

    The Bill, introduced in the Lok Sabha, nullifies the tax demand on the indirect transfer of Indian assets on transactions prior to 28 May 2012. The law will apply prospectively: gains from the sale of shares of a foreign company will be taxable in India if such shares, directly or indirectly, derive value from assets located in India. This makes eminent sense.

    ET View: In terms of growth contraction, the worst seems over

    In terms of current prices, GDP for Q3 is estimated to have gone up by a credible 4.3%, over the like period in the previous year.

    View: Why doesn't the Supreme Court crack down when lower courts violate its orders with disdain?

    The government should stop trying to suppress the voice of dissent through arrests, charges of sedition or causing enmity between communities and arm-twisting of social media platforms. And the Apex Court should pursue contempt charges, not against those who make open criticism of its rulings, but against the lower judiciary that subverts the constitutional order.

    ET View: Negative rates as conscious policy

    The RBI’s policies on maintaining high liquidity to fuel recovery, keeping a Targeted Long Term Repo window open is most sensible. It is unlikely to be used much, though, considering the oodles of liquidity being created by the RBI’s attempt to keep the exchange rate reasonably stable, even as foreign capital floods in, as confidence returns to mature markets.

    ET View: Even before Covid, economy was slumping

    The government needs to fix the banks and create a functional bond market. This alone can raise the rate of investment. Gross fixed capital formation as a share of GDP was down to 26% in Q4 of 2019-20, and 26.9% for the year as a whole. Without raising it by six percentage points of GDP, India cannot shed its low growth trap.
