first_imgNew Delhi: Overseas investors have pulled out a net amount of Rs 3,014 crore from the Indian capital markets this month so far, but the trend may reverse following the removal of enhanced surcharge on FPIs, experts said.According to depositories data, foreign portfolio investors (FPI) withdrew a net amount of Rs 12,105.33 crore from equities, but pumped in Rs 9,090.61 crore into the debt segment during August 1-23.This has translated into a total net outflow of Rs 3,014.72 crore from the capital markets (both equity and debt).

The sell off in equities continued due to a mix of factors including US Fed rate cut, US-China trade war and the post Budget tax hike on high income investors,” said Harsh Jain, co-founder and COO of Groww.The Centre on Friday announced a slew of measures to revive growth momentum, including rollback of enhanced super-rich tax on foreign and domestic equity investors imposed in the Budget.

The market is likely to look up from now on. However, sustained rally in the market will happen only when we have visibility on good earnings growth and reversal of the slowdown underway in the economy which requires more reforms.”The Finance Minister has announced that she will come back with more reforms soon. So, there is hope,” said V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services.last_img read more
