(a) 30

(b) 35

(c) 40

(d) 42

(e) 48

Answer & Explanation

Exp. RBI allowed IDBI Bank bidders to own more than 40%

RBI have accepted the Centre’s request for allowing non-financial institutions and non-regulated entities to own more than 40 per cent of IDBI Bank.

The government and LIC are going to sell 51-74% of the lender through a strategic divestment.

Non-financial institutions and non-regulated entities, such as private equity firms, currently, can own only 10 per cent and 15 per cent, respectively, in banks, while regulated entities and public sector undertakings (PSU) are allowed to hold up to 40 per cent. The RBI allows the holding of a higher stake, over 40 per cent, on a case-to-case basis.

The IDBI Bank was categorized as a ‘Private Sector Bank’ for regulatory purposes by the Reserve Bank of India with effect from 21 January 2019.

The move to sell up to 74 per cent stake in IDBI Bank shall facilitate the entry of foreign investors, in line with the Centre’s foreign direct investment (FDI) limit of 74 per cent in private banks. Even as the government holds over 45 per cent stake in IDBI Bank, the lender is classified as a private bank since its promoter is LIC.

The government will soon float an expression of interest (EoI) for sale of its stake in IDBI Bank. The EoI will specify that bidders can acquire over 51 per cent in the bank if they meet the eligibility criteria.

(a) 2.4

(b) 2.5

(c) 2.6

(d) 2.7

(e) 2.8

Answer & Explanation

Exp. Global GDP growth to slow to 2.7% in 2022- S&P Global Market Intelligence

Global GDP growth is projected to slow to 2.7 percent in 2022 and 2.6 percent in 2023, according to global financial services provider S&P Global Market Intelligence.

This follows after a 3.3 percent GDP contraction in 2020 and a 5.8 percent rebound in 2021.

The 2022 forecast is due to the US economy’s weaker first-half performance.

In line with the evidence of declining prices of finished goods and becoming more pervasive in the final quarter of 2022, global inflation is projected to ease from 7.3 per cent in 2022 to 4.2 per cent in 2023 and 2.7 per cent in 2024.

Resilient growth in the Asia Pacific region is key to the outlook of sustained global economic growth in 2022 and 2023. This region will likely account for 53 per cent of global real GDP growth in 2022 and an exceptional 62 per cent in 2023.

India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines will likely achieve growth rates of 5-7 per cent.
