Sensex in India Jumps 1.1%; IndusInd Bank Net Climbs
6:00 PM Mumbai – Markets rebounded in Mumbai and the latest agreement between the lenders and Greece was viewed with scepticism. IndusInd Bank said quarterly net climbed 25% on 20% increase in revenues. Unichem Lab profit slipped 5%. IL&FS Transportation won a road project in Jharkhand.
Markets in Asia and in Mumbai bounced after the late night deal between Greece and European lenders kept the struggling nation in the euro zone and extended $95 billion loan with strict conditions.
Greece has received $300 billion in loans in the previous bailouts over the last four years but Greek economy has shrunk more than 25% in the last five years and unemployment is above 25%.
The latest loan offer is highly conditional and requires a strict oversight from the I.M.F and requires implementation of unpopular pension reforms, asset sale, widening of tax net and value added tax reforms.
There is a good chance that Greece may not be able to pass the agreement in the parliament in the next few days and elections may be held as early as this year.
