Indian benchmark equity indices ended higher for the third straight session Tuesday on widespread buying towards the fag-end amid fresh inflows by foreign funds and positive global cues. Both indices were traded in the negative zone through the session as investors booked profits in recent gainers amid weakness in the rupee due to rise in global crude prices. Market was choppy through most of the session as investors turned cautious and logged gains ahead of Q3 earnings of bluechip companies such as TCS and Infosys later this week amid fresh weakness in the rupee which again breached the Rs 70-mark against a dollar. However, losses were capped on Central Statistics Office's positive advanced estimates of national income for 2018-19. The domestic economy is expected to grow at 7.2 per cent in 2018-19 against 6.7 per cent in the previous fiscal mainly due to improvement in the performance of agriculture and manufacturing sectors, the CSO had said Monday. The shares of public sector undertaking (PSU) banks continued their upward journey with PSU Bank index hitting a four-month high on Tuesday on the expectation of decline in bad loans. Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das on Monday expressed satisfaction over the performance of the banking sector saying bad loans have declined, particularly of state-owned banks. Various initiatives taken by the government have yielded results, with the bad loans of public sector banks declining by over Rs 23,000 crore from a peak of Rs 9.62 lakh crore in March 2018.
