  • Market ends almost flat in listless trade
  • January 17,2020  15:42
  • Key equity barometers ended near the flatline after a volatile session on Friday. The Nifty ended a tad above the 12,350 level. Sentiment was dented after the Supreme Court dismissed review petitions filed by telcos in the AGR case.

    The barometer BSE S&P Sensex rose 12.81 points or 0.03% to 41,945.37, as per the provisional closing data. The Nifty 50 index lost 3.15 points or 0.03% to 12,352.35, as per the provisional closing data.

    In the broader market, the S&P BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.54% while the S&P BSE Small-Cap index gained 0.42%.

    The market breadth favored the buyers. On the BSE, 1324 shares rose and 1217 shares fell. A total of 175 shares were unchanged. In Nifty 50 index, 21 stocks advanced while 28 stocks declined and 1 stock was unchanged.

    Buzzing Index:

    The S&P BSE Telecom index rose 1.44% at 1,142.53. Vodafone Idea (down 25.70%) and Bharti Infratel (down 11.20%) slumped. Reliance Industries, which owns Reliance Jio, was up 2.78% and Bharti Airtel rose 5.19%.

    The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed pleas filed by Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea to review its earlier judgment that had asked telecom operators to pay their outstanding dues to the government. The review petitions were filed to seek relief on interest and penalty payments in connection to the verdict on AGR. The deadline for telecom companies to meet the license fee dues as per the apex court's AGR judgement is 23 January 2020.

    According to reports, Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel are likely to file curative petitions, besides applying to the court for more time to make the payments, a combined Rs 89,000 crore for the two.

    Supreme Court in October 2019 had ruled in favor of the government on the AGR issue. AGR is the basis on which DoT calculates levies payable by operators. Telecom operators are liable to pay around 3-5% and 8% of the AGR as spectrum usage charges and licence fees, respectively, to DoT.

    Telcos argued that AGR should comprise revenue from telecom services, but DoT insisting that AGR should include all revenue earned by an operator, including that from non-core telecom operations.
