Karnataka Government assembly passes Bill slashing stamp duty by 2% on flats priced below Rs 45 lakh

Karnataka Government’s decision to slash stamp duty by 2% will provide marginal boost to the real estate sector. Although the move is definitely progressive, it will only make marginal difference to the volume of sales because 2% is capped for properties worth Rs 45 lakh only. While it will save cost to homebuyers, the volume of sales below Rs 45 lakh is restricted. Had the stamp duty cut been across the price categories as was done by the Maharashtra government, the impact would have been desirable. Limiting it to properties worth up to Rs 45 lakh may not lead to volumes, says Shantanu  Mazumder, Executive Director – Karnataka, Knight Frank India.

Edul Patel, CEO, and Co-founder, Mudrex- A Global Crypto Trading Platform

Multiple events culminated into a panic-like situation on Monday. The potential failure of China's Evergrande property group, having a debt of billions of dollars, initiated the selloff from the volatile asset classes. Investors rushed out of equities and cryptos and moved towards safer havens such as Gold and liquid funds. The upcoming Fed Reserve meeting aggravated the uncertainty, and the crypto market crumbled. The coming 24 hours would likely be a price discovery session for the market.

Indian market valuations stretched; see opportunity in financials, real estate: Pacific Paradigm

Punita Kumar Sinha, managing partner of Pacific Paradigm Advisors and chairperson of InCred AMC, on Tuesday, said that the Indian market is trading at an expensive valuation.

“Valuations are really stretched. If you look at the overall market valuations, we are trading at over 3.5 or something in that range of price to book versus much lower valuations than we have seen historically, so overall, I would say our risk levels are a little higher now, given what is happening globally,” Sinha said, in an interview to CNBC-TV18.

According to her, uncertainty in China is likely to lead foreign flows towards India. “The China story is getting trickier, given the regulatory environment there and that is likely to benefit India,” said Sinha. Read more

Susmit Patodia, Associate Director & Fund Manager-PMS at Motilal Oswal AMC, told CNBC-TV18 he contineus to like the domestic market-facing resilient companies, "I think Covid briefly taught us the importance of resilience to look for in companies and then we kind of forgot everything.

“Real estate in India is completely, I would say, different from what is happening in China. You had nearly five years of no sales.

Dollar strength made industrial metals more expensive for holders of other currencies: Angel Broking's Yash Sawant

"Mounting fears over the prospects of a debt default by China's Evergrande Group sent a panic wave across financial markets. Investors rushed towards the safe-haven bet dollar amid worries over the probable impact on the global economy amid the wide spread of the Delta variant of Covid-19," said Yash Sawant, Research Associate of Angel Broking. He also said the debt fears are in line with the slow economic expansion in China following the recent outbreaks of the coronavirus and disrupted supply, which triggered the fall in industrial metal prices.

An appreciating dollar has made the dollar-priced industrial metals more expensive for those holding other currencies, he said.
