Indian benchmark indices started the week on the positive note and has been trading green since morning. On the government front, fiscal deficit higher than budgeted may prompt the government to push PSUs for buybacks or higher dividends. The gap between government expenditure and revenues at the end of November stood at Rs 6.48 lakh crore against the budgeted Rs 6.24 lakh crore (3.3 per cent of the GDP). Going by the fiscal trend and latest data points, it looks highly likely that the deficit could be breached.
