Indian stocks ended higher in volatile trading on Friday, helped by information technology and energy shares, although investors remained nervous about rising coronavirus cases and tensions with China. The NSE Nifty 50 index ended up 0.91% at 10,383 and the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex gained 0.94% at 35,171.27. The Nifty information technology index was the top gainer, rising 4.1%.
Indian shares slid on Friday, as banks fell after the central bank decided to cut policy rates and extend a relief period for loan repayments in an effort to contain the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Reserve Bank of India extended a moratorium on loan repayments by a further three months, as many borrowers are out of jobs due to the weeks-long lockdown that has threatened to push Asia's third-largest economy into recession. Steps including a loan restructuring scheme, the possibility of creating a "bad bank" for stressed sectors and infusing more liquidity via bank recapitalization bonds could help support India's lenders, economists at HSBC in Mumbai said in a report.
