LIC IPO may not happen in this fiscal

In what could be a big setback for the government disinvestment collections in FY22, the LIC IPO may not happen in this fiscal due to delays in the valuation. While the DIPAM Secretary, Tuhin Kant Pandey, was still optimistic about completing the LIC IPO by March 2022, experts increasingly are of the view that it would be impractical to expect. Even after the valuation was completed, there would be regulatory gaps to be filled up. LIC IPO will have to be vetted by SEBI and IRDA. It looks like FY23 would be more practical.

FPI pulled out a total of Rs.17,696 crore from Indian markets

Foreign portfolio investors pulled out a total of Rs.17,696 crore from Indian markets in the first 3 weeks of Dec-21. The selling was largely driven by the Omicron variant, faster tapering by the Federal and rising inflation in India. Overall, FPIs net sold Rs.13,470 crore in equities and Rs.4,226 crore in debt. The equity selling would have been much worse, but for the IPO flows from QIBs. Clearly, the over-owned banking sector is attracting the bulk of the selling by FPIs. However, other EMs have been seeing strong inflows.
