Amongst all the countries in the world, India’s disconnect between its stock rally and its declining economy is probably the most talked issue. India’s shares that had been marked as one of the best rebounds from March, shows a global downswing while it had been struggling some of the worst economic data of the world. This gush had in turn boosted up the valuation to a record as investors disregarded the harsh reality and the world’s third-highest record in Covid-19 cases.
The quandary did not augur well for India’s economy that had laid for its first contraction in more than four decades. More negative records of macro data and coronavirus cases can untangle a rally that had added 605 billion dollars in market value from the depths of unconsciousness to overtake the stimulus package of the government.
It has been just a few months since the fiscal year had started and the fiscal deficit is almost at its way to touch the annual target, thus, evacuating Narendra Modi’s government potency to add to the 280 billion dollar stimulus that was declared in the month of May. In addition to the already hampered state, is “India’s bad loan ratio, which expected to swell to the highest level in more than two decades in 2021 following the world’s strictest lockdown measures”, said the central bank in the last month.

The scenario of businesses in India is at its worst. In June, the data provider’s survey on sentiment turned negative for the first time in less than two decades. The respondents were also in a dilemma that whether all the overall activities would develop over the next year. Although the corporate executives of various sectors hope to regain its state that was before Covid-19, the analysts still indicate a not so satisfactory future of the economy. The Indian economic performances remain in oblivion even after the upliftment of lockdowns and it is set to deflate the most among all countries.
On the other hand, the S&P BSE is also up by 45% which resulted due to the rising interest of first-time investors and three months of continuous purchase by the foreigners. This rebound ranked best among all the major global equity indexes for the period. As it becomes more difficult for India’s economy, the investors expect more from the RBI and this is why the Sensex is rising rapidly even in the pandemic crisis.
On Tuesday, the meter raised by 2% at the close, and presently the investors will look up to the economic outlook commentary from RBI on Thursday.
