Banking Sector: The Reserve Bank of India asks banks to do 50% provisions for loans being referred to the bankruptcy courts -  negative read thru
RBI told banks to set aside at least 50% of the loan amount as likely losses for all cases referred to the insolvency process. The regulator also said that provisioning should be 100% in those cases that don’t get resolved in the initial mandatory period for loan restructuring and instead are forced into liquidation -  Negative read through. While the market was  expecting liberal provisioning norms after RBI ordered  banks to start insolvency proceedings against the country's top 12 defaulters. There is also a worry that with bankruptcy courts as yet untested, many cases may not get resolved in the stipulated time and be headed for liquidation, which could double the provisioning for the next fiscal year as well, stretching out bank's woes. The saving grace here is that the RBI has allowed that Banks can spread the provisions across four quarters from June 2017 till March 2018. The indebted dozen account for 25%, or Rs 2.5 lakh crore, of the total bad loans in the banking system. Banks have indicated that provisioning on these accounts is now in the range of 30-40% and thus they will need another Rs 30,000-50,000 crore by the end of this fiscal year.

FMCG Sector - GST rollout - Companies say retailers refusing to buy fresh stocks; retailers want consumer firms to protect margins – will have short term impact on Q1 and Q2 sales of FMCG companies unless more clarities emerge on implementation of GST
A tussle has erupted between large consumer companies and organised trade just ahead of the introduction of the goods and services tax (GST) on July 1. FMCG companies say that large retailers are refusing to buy fresh stocks starting June 26 till the month ends, while retailers want consumer companies to protect margins. According to the industry, educating over 4.5 million retailers is a significantly big task and there is confusion among the trade about buying fresh stocks now. There will be some wholesalers and retailers who will be out of stock for a while, leading to a shortage of products on shelves. While in the long term, GST is positive, it will take about a quarter for things to settle down. Through May and June, companies have been offering the trade product and cash discounts to push stocks ahead of July 1, saying that managing and evaluating inventory across millions of outlets in the pre-GST and post-GST scenario will be a mammoth task, and also to avoid the same product having two maximum retail prices (MRPs). But despite the step-up in margins by companies, retailers say they had reduced stock by about 25% since they didn’t want to be saddled with unsold stocks on July 1.
