19/05/2017 16:20
Indian benchmark indices ended the day on a flat note after bears took charge, which dragged the markets lower from a gap-up opening.

The 30-share barometer SENSEX closed at 30464.92, up by 30.13 points or by 0.1 per cent, and the NSE Nifty ended at 9427.9, down by 1.55 points or by 0.02 per cent.

The euphoria of progress on the GST front fizzled out during the day. The GST Council has finalized tax rates on 1211 items, under the four-slab structure with essential items of daily use being kept in the lowest bracket of 5 percent. The most of the items will likely become cheaper as the new rates will be lower than the current effective levies. The Council in the opening session of the two-day meeting also approved rules for the rollout of the new indirect tax regime from July 1, 2017.
