Indian share markets witnessed huge selling pressure on Monday.

Benchmark indices extended losses with shares of Reliance Industries plunging as much as 6% after the announcement of its December quarter results.

Selling pressure was also seen after the Indian army said Indian and Chinese troops were involved in a "minor face-off" last week in a disputed stretch of their shared border in the eastern Himalayas.

At the closing bell on Monday, the BSE Sensex stood lower by 531 points. The NSE Nifty ended down by 133 points.

Bajaj Auto was among the top gainers. Reliance Industries, on the other hand, was among the top losers.

On the company's Q3FY21 results, Tata Motors said that its PV business has witnessed strong demand for its 'New Forever' range of cars & SUVs and that the segment grew by 39% year-on-year (YoY) in FY21 over FY20.

The company's revenue from operations stood at Rs 122.5 billion, up 17.4%, during the October-December quarter under review compared to Rs 104.4 billion in the corresponding period of the last fiscal year.

The oil-to-telecom conglomerate reported consolidated revenues of Rs 1,200 billion which were up 21.1% YoY.

DoT to Favorably Consider Telcos' Plea on Notice Period for New Service

In news from the telecom sector...

As per an article in The Economic Times, the telecom department may favorably consider requests by Reliance Jio Infocomm and Bharti Airtel to halve the notice period for starting services based on a new technology to six months, a move that may increase bidding interest in the upcoming spectrum auction.

If the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) approves the requests, the telcos will be allowed to offer 5G services on 4G spectrum bands such as 700 MHz or 800 MHz that also support the faster mobile standard and can be purchased in the March auction.

It's not clear when 5G airwaves in the 3,300-3,600 MHz bands will be auctioned. Both Airtel and Jio have written to reduce the pre-intimation notice period for a new service.

DoT is considering their requests and it is possible to reduce the notice period from one year to six months, said an official aware of the development.

Note that Jio has said it is 5G-ready and has developed its own eco-system that will make the telco a global 5G vendor.

Jio and Bharti Airtel are expected to be the major bidders in the spectrum auction. DoT aims to sell 2,250 MHz of 4G airwaves across seven bands from March 1, although it is yet to clear the air on when 5G airwaves will be auctioned.

The government may net Rs 400 billion from the auction in which airwaves worth Rs 3.92 lakh crore at the base price will be up for sale.

Jio is expected to spend Rs 200 billion, followed by Airtel, which is likely to spend Rs 100-150 billion in the auction.
