India's Ambitious Space Dream

Skyroot Aerospace, which successfully launched the country's first private rocket Vikram-S recently, is now planning to launch Vikram-1, a much bigger rocket to place satellites into orbit.

The space startup plans to do this within a year.

The Hyderabad-based space startup also aims to slash costs of space travel in the future.

Skyroot also wants to become one of the first few companies in the world who can place satellites into orbit.

The company's co-founder said that Skyroot would keep on raising more capital in its journey forward and would like to generate a good amount of revenue as it starts launching from next year.

Giving an example of Blue Origin, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos's space offering, he said that it may take up to 10 years to become a reality from an Indian perspective.

Note that the sector has generated eye-catching headlines recently with successful rocket launches.

In 2022 so far, funding to private players in the space sector has jumped 61.5% to US$108.5 million (Rs 8.9 bn).

India currently has 104 space startups and 368 space tech companies, according to official data.

Busy December for Primary Markets

According to reports, around half a dozen initial public offerings (IPOs) worth over Rs 50 bn are expected to hit the primary markets next month.

Typically, December is considered a lacklustre month for fundraising activity. With markets scaling new peaks and FII flows staying buoyant, companies and investment bankers are looking to capitalise on the opportunity.

Companies projected to roll out their public offerings in December include KFin Technologies, Concord Enviro Systems, and GPT Healthcare.

The ongoing month of November 2022 has proven to be the best month so far. About 10 IPOs have garnered a collective Rs 105.6 bn this month.

So far this year, 33 companies have raised an aggregate of Rs 551.5 bn, supported by the Rs 200-bn plus IPO of Life Insurance Corporation of India.

Cosmo First Buyback

Cosmo First (formerly Cosmo Films) rose over 8% yesterday after the company announced that its board will meet on Thursday, 1 December to consider share buyback proposal.

With the recent rally, the stock has now gained 17% in just two sessions.

In this market, investors are again on the lookout for cash rich companies which are resorting to either big dividend payments or big buybacks or both. This, in the hope they will continue to receive steady income, if not capital gains.

Along with Cosmo First, another company which has declared buyback recently is IEX.

RBI to Launch Digital Rupee this week

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will launch the first pilot for retail digital Rupee (e₹-R) on 1 December 2022.

In a statement, the central bank said,

  • "The pilot would cover select locations in closed user group (CUG) comprising participating customers and merchants.

    The e₹-R would be in the form of a digital token that represents legal tender. It would be issued in the same denominations that paper currency and coins are currently issued. It would be distributed through intermediaries, i.e., banks."

Users will be able to transact with e₹-R through a digital wallet offered by the participating banks and stored on mobile phones. Transactions can be both Person to Person (P2P) and Person to Merchant (P2M).

The central bank has selected eight banks for phase-wise participation in this pilot. The first phase will begin with four banks - State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, Yes Bank and IDFC First Bank in four cities.

Later, Bank of Baroda, Union Bank of India, HDFC Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank will join this pilot.
