    Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday declined to remove or relax the applicability of the new surcharge on the super rich on foreign portfolio investors (FPIs), but advised those staring at an increase in tax outflows to shift to the corporate structure where the Budget has not made any change in tax treatment.

    Replying to a debate on the Finance Bill in the Parliament on 18 July, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman dismissed the argument of the Opposition that the tax would lead to a flight of foreign portfolio investors (FPIs). It will have an impact on FPIs registered as trusts. There is an option for FPIs to register as companies. If they are registered as companies, they don't have a problem with this new tax, Sitharaman said. She said a trust was treated as an individual entity and came under the tax.

    Sitharaman in her maiden Budget speech on 5 July 2019, proposed to enhance surcharge on individuals having taxable income from Rs 2 crore to Rs 5 crore and Rs 5 crore and above so that effective tax rates for these two categories will increase by around 3% and 7% respectively. The effective tax rate on the highest tax bracket goes up to 42.7% after the hike.

    There are concerns that the increased surcharge on super-rich could also affect foreign funds investing in India since a same tax structures apply for individuals, Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) and Associations of Persons (AOPs). FPIs, including pension and retirement funds, educational endowment fund, etc, come in through trusts or AOPs route because it has been the most tax-efficient structure.

    The Lok Sabha passed the Finance Bill by voice vote, completing the budget process for 2019-20 in the Lower House. It will now go to the Rajya Sabha. A money bill does not need Upper House approval.

    Meanwhile, Asian Development Bank on 18 July 2019 lowered India's GDP growth forecast to 7% for the current year on the back of fiscal shortfall concerns. India is expected to grow by 7% in 2019 (FY20) and 7.2% in 2020 (FY21), slightly slower than projected in April because the fiscal 2018 outturn fell short, ADB said in its supplement to the Asian Development Outlook 2019. For the south Asian region, ADB said the outlook remains robust, with growth projected at 6.6% in 2019 and 6.7% in 2020.

    In the foreign exchange market, the rupee edged higher against the dollar. The partially convertible rupee was hovering at 68.925, compared with its close of 68.97 during the previous trading session.

    In the commodities market, Brent crude for September 2019 settlement rose $1.02 at $62.95 a barrel. The contract fell $1.73 or, 2.72% to settle at $61.93 a barrel in the previous trading session.

    Oil prices bounce back after the US Navy shot down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz, a key checkpoint for global crude flows.

    The International Energy Agency (IEA) does not expect oil prices to rise significantly because demand is slowing and there is a glut in global crude markets, IEA executive director was quoted by the media as saying. Electric vehicles are not expected to make a dent on crude demand in India and elsewhere, IEA's Fatih Birol said, adding that he expects India's oil demand to continue rising. The IEA is reducing its 2019 oil demand forecast due to a slowing global economy amid a US-China trade spat, and may cut it again if the global economy and especially China shows further weakness, Birol told the media on 18 July.

    Overseas, Europe shares were trading higher while Asian markets closed on a positive note on Friday, as comments from US Federal Reserve official cemented expectations of a US interest rate cut later this month.

    US stocks closed higher Thursday, after New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said the central bank's wisest strategy is to cut interest rates at the first sign of economic distress when interest rates are already low.
