Reliance Industries: Jio Financial Services is being removed from several FTSE Indices for failing to commence trading after 20 business days. A notice shared by FTSE Russell said that the company had also not announced a firm trading date since its inclusion on July 20. The omission will come into effect from August 22. The announcement from FTSE also comes at a time when Reliance Industries Ltd is working to list shares of its financial services unit. Earlier reports indicated that a listing date could be shared in the wake of the company's upcoming annual general meeting.

JSW Steel: JSW Steel Ltd is considering picking up a 75% interest in Teck Resources' steelmaking coal business Elk Valley Resources, according to a Bloomberg report.

Dodla Dairy/Hatsun Agro/Umang Dairies: Strong demand for value-added products and stable milk consumption will lead to a 14-16% revenue growth for India’s organised dairy industry this fiscal. With raw milk supply improving, there will be fewer price hikes and profitability will recover 20-50 basis points, said rating agency Crisil. Last fiscal, disruptions in raw milk supply had led to multiple hikes in retail milk prices, pushing up the topline by 19% but impacting profitability.
