COMMENT Kotak Securities sees a rate cut soon We expect the RBI to cut rates by 50 bps in 1HCY19 given the muted growth-inflation outlook. The RBI will probably first change its stance to ‘neutral’ in February and follow it up with rate cuts as inflation is expected to stay below 4% until August 2019. The RBI, however, will be watchful of DM monetary policies and crude price movements. While volatile crude oil prices and concerns on fiscal slippage may warrant some caution, the seemingly structurally benign food inflation along with softening growth (in 2HFY19) should help in capping the upside pressures, thereby creating space for the RBI to cut rates by 50 bps in 1HCY19.

INTERIM BUDGET EXPECTATIONS Motilal Oswal Institutional Equities Although the full budget later this year will hold more significance (as the numbers may change with the new government), the forthcoming interim budget may well offer a glimpse of what lies ahead as market participants seek answers to some crucial questions: Will the government increase rural spending and turn populist? Will such populist spending be an annual occurrence or a one-time event? Will the salaried class enjoy any relaxation or will the large companies see lower corporate tax rates at 25%? What would happen to the capital spending of the central government? Will politics of the day allow the center to follow the path of fiscal consolidation?
