9) GMR Group to divest 30% stake in PT GEMS for USD 420 million.
10) US Fed rate hike: Rupee to remain under pressure, may test new levels: The aggressive rate hikes will dampen demand and increase the possibility of a recession in the US. This could accelerate the pace of capital outflows, weaken the rupee and raise the threat of imported inflation. The Fed rate hikes narrow the difference between the interest rates of India and the US, making India less attractive for dollar investment. This could lead to capital outflows, and coupled with elevated crude oil and commodity prices may depress the rupee further, experts said. (PTI)
