On Tuesday, global rating agency Moody said that the draft bill to establish a new regime for resolving troubled banks in India is credit positive. It will help to enhance the overall stability of the financial system.

It is an important step to having a comprehensive framework in place for the resolution of financial firms. “Currently, the resolution of financial firms in India is based on minor parts of legislation enacted for other purposes,” said Srikanth Vadlamani, a Moody’s Vice-President and Senior Credit Officer.

“The beginning of three-day GST council meet to finalize the tax rate triggered positivity, which in turn resulted in short covering across the board. The recent Essar deal has also raised hope among the bankers as most are struggling with non-performing assets (NPA) issue,” said Jayant Manglik, President, Retail Distribution, Religare Securities.

“Banking and financial stocks lifted the mood post the Essar Oil deal, which eases some NPA worries. The low inflation and expectations of further easing by RBI have also changed the sentiment in the market,” said Vaibhav Agrawal (VP & Head of Research), Angel Broking.

“The market earlier saw nervousness over the geopolitical worries after the surgical strikes happened; however, there is no escalation, so this is also a rebound from the earlier decline. Overall we see a strong market going forward as festive demand remains solid,” he added.
