Bond Investors -
Bond investors drew some relief from a lower than expected borrowing program. Nevertheless, the relief could prove short-lived. India missed its fiscal deficit target of 3.2 percent, saying its targeting a 3.5 percent target for fiscal 2019. Big bond investors such as India's state-owned banks could be
hit as yields go even higher than the the 96 basis points they climbed in the past six months. But RBI is planning to something about it in near future.

insurers and providers of mutual fund products including IDFC Ltd., Reliance Capital Ltd., Aditya Birla Capital Ltd., ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Co Ltd., HDFC Standard Life Insurance Co Ltd., General Insurance Corp of India
Defense Sector -
There was no indication of a huge boost to defense spending. Companies such as Bharat Forge Ltd. may not see a boost.
Jaitley said that the government will do everything to discontinue the use of bitcoins and other virtual currencies as payment mode.?
He said India does not recognise them as legal tender and will instead ENCOURAGE "blockchain technology" in payment systems.
