Market sentiment improved as concerns over political stability and policy continuity waned after the new government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was sworn in over the weekend. On Sunday, Narendra Modi took oath as the Prime Minister of India for the third consecutive term. Along with him, 71 ministers in the new coalition government were also administered the oath of secrecy and office by President Droupadi Murmu.

Indian stock market participants will now watch the composition of the council of ministers in the new NDA government, key global and domestic factors including the US Federal Reserve policy outcome, Bank of Japan interest rate decision and India and US inflation data this week for further cues on the direction of the markets.

On Friday, Sensex and Nifty 50 saw a stellar rally of over 2% each after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) policy. The RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) kept the repo rate and policy stance unchanged and raised India’s GDP estimates for FY25, while retaining the inflation target.
