During the day, The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor on January 13 said it is too early to revisit the inflation target of 4% with a 2% deviation on either side, in the current situation.

Foreign investors offloaded around Rs 15,000 crore worth of Indian equities in the first two weeks of January amid risks of Covid in some parts of the world and recession worries in the US. FPIs have been adopting a cautious stance toward Indian equity markets for the past few weeks. The Japanese yen held near an over seven-month peak, as traders, in the lead-up to the Bank of Japan's monetary policy decision this week, ramped up bets that the central bank could make further tweaks to its yield control policy.
