The price of a widely used 12.5 kg LPG cylinder was raised by 17 percent to 1,676 rupees ($10.63) by both the state-owned LPG retailer and its only private competitor.

    Rupee and rupiah seen vulnerable to U.S. rates, tantrums not expected

    Both currencies have fallen sharply since the beginning of the year, alongside a rise in expectations for improved global growth and faster policy tightening by the Fed. The Fed raised its interest rates by a quarter percent on Wednesday, and forecast two more hikes for 2018, highlighting its growing confidence that tax cuts and government spending will boost the U.S. economy. The recent falls in the rupee and rupiah are reminiscent of the 2013 selloff when foreign investors fled emerging-Asia markets after the Fed signalled an end to ultra-easy crisis policy.

    Rupee pushed to near 3-month low, emerging stocks slide

    The Indian rupee slid to a near three-month low on Tuesday amid growing concerns about an alleged major bank fraud at India's second-largest state-run lender, whilst emerging stocks fell half a percent. The rupee fell 0.9 percent against the dollar to its weakest since mid-November as investors eyed the potential broader implications from the alleged $1.77 billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) loan fraud. Investors have also been unsettled by India's trade deficit hitting its highest in over 4-1/2 years in January.

    Indian shares slid and the rupee weakened as a global market rout whacked sentiment, adding to existing investor concerns ahead of a central bank meeting this week and a new capital gains tax later in the year. The broader NSE Nifty and the benchmark BSE Sensex each fell about 1.6 percent on Tuesday, marking a sixth consecutive session of falls after earlier falling as much as 3.7 percent each. The slump in Wall Street overnight comes as India's record-setting share rally came under threat following the government's announcement of a 10 percent long-term capital gains tax in equities, which starts in April.

    The rupee weakened to 63.6650 from its 63.58 close on Wednesday, tracking a stronger dollar after the U.S. Federal Reserve signalled its confidence about inflation and growth in the world's biggest economy. Investors in India are keenly waiting to see how much India widens its fiscal deficit for the year starting in April, from the current projection of 3.0 percent of gross domestic product. "If the budget is committed to fiscal consolidation and there is no additional tax burden on capital market investments then it will be welcomed cheerfully by investors," said Sudhakar Pattabiraman, head of research operations at MarketSmith, which is part of financial services provider William O'Neil.

    Pakistan's new finance ministry chief Miftah Ismail said he plans significant tax reforms in the five months before the government's term ends ahead of a 2018 election, and touted a policy of greater currency flexibility. Pakistan's government has in recent months devalued the rupee, imposed tariffs on imported goods and sought to boost exports to reduce growing balance of payments pressures fuelling concern about health of the nearly $300 billion economy. Pakistan this month borrowed $2.5 billion from international markets via a Sukuk and eurobond offers that were vastly oversubscribed and fetched lower-than-expected rates.
