Decrease in liquidity
It has been 40 months since banking liquidity decreased. The RBI released Rs 50,000 crore on Thursday under the Variable Rate Repo program to enhance liquidity (VRR). Due to the advanced tax deposit system’s withdrawal of money, an increase in credit demand, and a slowdown in deposit growth, liquidity has decreased.
Shares of Tata Steel rose 2%
Tata Steel’s stock rose by up to 2% during Friday’s trading session. This strength became apparent when word spread that the company’s board had approved the merger of six Tata Group entities with Tata Steel. On Friday, shares of Hero MotoCorp were also observed trading in the negative territory. Explain that starting on September 22, the corporation will be raising the price of their automobiles.
