FM Sitharaman chairs meet on illegal lending apps; app stores to follow RBI 'whitelist'

All ministries and government agencies are to take "all possible actions" to prevent illegal loan applications from operating, the finance ministry saidFM Sitharaman chairs meet on illegal lending apps; app stores to follow RBI  'whitelist'

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on September 8 chaired a meeting on illegal lending apps, with a decision being taken that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will prepare a 'whitelist' of all such legal applications.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology will then ensure that only these whitelisted digital lending applications are hosted on app stores, the finance ministry said in a statement on September 9.

"The finance minister expressed concern on increasing instances of Illegal Loan Apps offering loans/micro credits, especially to vulnerable and low-income group people at exorbitantly high interest rates and processing/hidden charges, and predatory recovery practices involving blackmailing and criminal intimidation," the finance ministry statement said.

Sitharaman also noted the possibility of money laundering, tax evasions, breach of data, and misuse of unregulated payment aggregators, shell companies, defunct non-bank finance companies for perpetrating such actions.

The meeting, attended by secretaries from the finance, corporate affairs, and information technology ministries along with officials from the RBI, comes in the wake of increasing concerns surrounding illigal mobile-based lending applications.

Late last month, Moneycontrol reported the RBI is working to set up a fraud registry to keep scamsters at bay.

This fraud registry, according to RBI Executive Director Anil Kumar Sharma, will capture information like IP (internet protocol) addresses and phone numbers repeatedly used to commit frauds. Once reported, these numbers and IP addresses will be blacklisted.

Some of the other decisions taken at the meeting on September 8 include:

>> RBI to monitor 'mule/rented' accounts that may be used to launder money

>> Registration of payment aggregators will be completed by the RBI within a certain period of time after which only such payment aggregators will be allowed to function

>> The corporate affairs ministry will identify shell companies and de-register them to prevent their misuse, while the RBI will do the same for dormant non-bank finance companies

The September 8 meeting also comes after the RBI said on August 10 that it had accepted certain recommendations made by its working group on digital lending. However, these would only be applicable on entities under its purview.

Chhattisgarh govt chalks out strategy for exploring rich minerals

Till now, more than 100 potential mineral blocks have been identified on the basis of exploration taken up by government agencies in Chhattisgarh

Lithium

Endowed with rich minerals,  is working out an extensive plan to explore high-value  with a focus on .

Recent surveys have indicated  deposits in the central and southern regions of . According to officials, work is going on in full swing to complete the formalities and extract lithium, given the demand for the mineral. The state is stressing the need to adopt green technology to explore  as well.

“The Geological Survey of India (GSI) has identified a  Block in Katghora-Guchapur area of Korba district, and the reconnaissance survey hints at deposits of lithium with high concentration,” said Anurag Diwan, joint director in the  Directorate of Mines.

Lithium blocks have also been traced in and around Tongpal, Govindpal, Chitalnar and Puspal areas of Sukma district in Bastar, Diwan said. The area can be explored for lithium-bearing pegmatite. Surveyors found lepidolite, a lithium-bearing mineral, Diwan added.

In the Korba belt, analytical results indicate significant mineralisation of rare earth elements (REE) and other rare metals. Similarly, a reconnaissance survey for gold and associated sulphide mineralisation in Barjor area of Jashpur district reveals the anomalous gold value in the bedrock sample.

“Our priority is to assess the availability and quantity of high-value  like lithium, tin, gold, copper, nickel and diamond using the latest technology,” Diwan said. Lithium is used in the process of making glasses, ceramics and pharmaceuticals, besides aluminium and magnesium alloys. But the highest potential for growth is in the battery market, where lithium is used as electrode and electrolyte material in lithium disposable batteries and in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.

The mining department recently organised a conference to design a strategy regarding the auction of mineral blocks and exploration of high-value minerals available in the state. Detailed deliberation was held with the stakeholders, both from the public as well as the private sector, to make Chhattisgarh a hub of high-value minerals in the country.

Till now, more than 100 potential mineral blocks have been identified on the basis of exploration taken up by government agencies in Chhattisgarh. The state government had issued a tender inviting notices for 40 mineral blocks of minerals like gold, iron Ore, limestone and bauxite. As many as 15 blocks have been successfully auctioned.

Poll | Retail inflation may rise to 6.9% in August, July IIP growth may tumble to 4.1%

The statistics ministry will release CPI inflation data for August and IIP growth for July on September 12Poll | Retail inflation may rise to 6.9% in August, July IIP growth may  tumble to 4.1%

India's headline retail inflation rate likely rose for the first time in four months to 6.9 percent in August, according to a Moneycontrol poll of 18 economists.

Inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), eased to a five-month low of 6.71 percent in July. The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation will release retail inflation data for August at 5.30 pm on September 12.

According to economists, inflation likely rose in August as an increase in food prices was partially cancelled out by lower prices of other items in the CPI basket.

"Prices of cereals and pulses are beginning to rise as fears of a smaller sown crop area this year, combined with moderating buffer stocks, are creating expectations of higher prices," said Rahul Bajoria, chief India economist at Barclays. "While a few food export restrictions have been imposed by the government, some passthrough from international prices into domestic prices remains inevitable."

Bajoria expects food and beverage inflation of the CPI to have risen to 7.2 percent in August from 6.7 percent in July.

According to data from the Department of Consumer Affairs, retail prices of rice rose by 2.3 percent month-on-month in August, while that of 'atta' (wheat flour) increased by 3.5 percent over the same period.

The price of pulses also broadly rose sequentially in August. While the price of gram dal was unchanged, that of moong and masoor dal was up 0.2 percent and 0.7 percent month-on-month. The biggest price rise was for tur, which increased by 4.8 percent, and urad dal, which climbed 2.6 percent month-on-month.

On the plus side, prices of all six edible oils for which data was available fell in August from July, with the drop ranging from 0.4 percent to 3.7 percent.

The movement of vegetable prices was mixed. While onion and potato prices increased 0.7 percent and 3.5 percent, respectively, tomato prices slumped 13.6 percent, data from the consumer affairs department showed.

Policy impact

At 6.9 percent, the August CPI inflation print would be above the Reserve Bank of India's medium-term target of 4 percent for the 35th straight month. More importantly, it would be outside the central bank's 2-6 percent tolerance range for the eighth consecutive month. This would leave the RBI just one month away from failing to meet its inflation mandate.

The RBI is deemed to have failed its mandate when average CPI inflation is outside the 2-6 percent tolerance band for three consecutive quarters. CPI inflation averaged 6.3 percent in January-March and 7.3 percent in April-June. The RBI has forecast it will average 7.1 percent in July-September.

Should the RBI fail, it must submit a report to the central government, spelling out the reasons for the failure, the remedial actions it proposes to take, and an estimate of the time within which inflation will return to target.

However, economists don't see failure to meet the inflation mandate resulting in a dramatic change in monetary policy. The Indian central bank has already increased the policy repo rate by 140 basis points to 5.4 percent in the past four months.

The Monetary Policy Committee is scheduled to next meet on September 28-30, with economists predicting another interest rate hike.

IIP growth

Separately, the statistics ministry will release industrial production data for July, also at 5.30 pm on September 12.

Industrial growth, as measured by the Index of Industrial Production (IIP), is seen tumbling to 4.1 percent in July from 12.3 percent in June, according to the median of estimates by 16 economists polled by Moneycontrol.

In June, IIP growth had tumbled to 12.3 percent from 19.6 percent in May as a favourable base effect waned. The normalisation of the base is expected to continue in July as well.

Further, according to Rupa Rege Nitsure, group chief economist at L&T Financial Services, mining activity is likely to have been lower in July compared to June due to the monsoon.

"While domestic manufacturing activity showed good traction in July, there was a slowdown in exports growth, in line with the slowdown in external demand," Nitsure added.

Industrial growth jumped three-fold in May to 19.6 percent on the back of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic engulfing the country in the year-ago period. The second wave led to the reimposition of restrictions on movement and activity in several parts of the country, adversely impacting industrial activity, thus creating a low base for this year's IIP growth figures.

However, activity levels improved in a couple of months, with the general index of the IIP rising 6.7 percent and 7.1 percent on a month-on-month basis in June 2021 and July 2021, respectively.

Russia's exclusion may pave way for India into global bond index

Getting high-yielding Indian sovereign bonds into global indexes would make it easier for overseas investors to put their money into Asia's third-biggest economy with its $1 trillion debt marketRupee, bonds market, funds

India has the biggest bond market among emerging economies that’s not covered by global indexes, but bankers say that may change soon, potentially drawing in billions of dollars in inflows. Russia’s recent exclusion is one reason why.

 expects an announcement that India will be included in JPMorgan & Chase Co.’s emerging  bond index as early as mid-September with the actual entry in the third quarter next year. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. sees that announcement coming in the fourth quarter this year and inclusion in the second or third quarter in 2023. Both expect India’s weight at 10%, the maximum for a country in the index, and potential inflows of $30 billion from the move.

Getting high-yielding Indian sovereign bonds into global indexes would make it easier for  to put their money into Asia’s third-biggest economy with its $1 trillion debt market. It would follow many false starts over the years that resulted from wariness about debt inflows and disagreements including one on tax breaks for foreigners. Russia’s exclusion from the JPMorgan gauges after it invaded Ukraine may have added to incentives for the index compilers to fill the hole with Indian debt.

graph

JPMorgan, one of the major index providers, has been collecting feedback from investors over including India in its Government Bond Index - Emerging  Global Diversified, or GBI-EM. More than 60% of real money investors are ready or almost ready for India’s inclusion, a  survey showed. A spokesperson for JPMorgan in India declined to comment.

“India would offer much needed diversification to the GBI-EM index given the different structure of its economy, and so would be a strong addition to the index from a long-term perspective,” said Nivedita Sunil, portfolio manager for Asia and EM debt at Lombard Odier (Singapore) Ltd. “We have held consultations with the index provider and we are broadly supportive of it.”

Bond traders in India have had their hopes dashed in the past on index inclusion. There were widespread expectations in February that the government would announce a tax break for foreign investors in the budget that would facilitate trading of the nation’s debt on platforms such as Euroclear.

Dashed Expectations

Instead, the budget was silent on the issue. Officials have said they decided not to exempt international bond transactions from taxes, and they would like settlement of bonds to be done locally.

“India has its own size and heft to act on its own,” said Aninda Mitra, head of Asia macro and investment strategy at BNY Mellon Investment Management. “But it is important to make a strategic decision and stick with it, rather than send out conflicting signals.”

Meanwhile, in the GBI-EM index  had a weight of about 8% before it was removed, and now there are seven countries with a weight of 10% each and 13 countries sharing the remaining 30%, according to the  note.

“The exclusion of  has made the index more concentrated and unbalanced,” Morgan Stanley strategists Min Dai, Madan Reddy and Gek Teng Khoo wrote in a note early September. “Hence JPMorgan has more incentive to include India even without Euroclear, as long as GBI-EM investors don’t object to that.”

graph

India is currently ‘on track’ to be placed on index watch for inclusion in JPMorgan’s bond index, according to the bank. It’s also on the FTSE Russell watch list to get into its emerging market debt index.

Bloomberg LP is the parent company of Bloomberg Index Services Ltd, which administers indexes that compete from those by other service providers.

Renewed market talk on index inclusion helped revive flows into rupee-denominated bonds last month after six continuous months of outflows. Foreign inflows will be crucial to meet the nation’s ever-growing bond supply as its funding needs expand.

Authorities have taken some steps to ease rules for foreigners. Recent regulations like allowing custodian banks to pre-fund trades on behalf of foreign investors and extended settlement timings are examples, according to Goldman Sachs. Still, key issues remain.

“We think the two biggest operational challenges are account opening time and the burdensome trading requirements,” said Eric Lo, a fixed-income fund manager at Manulife Investment Management. He said it can take up to nine months to open a local India bond trading account, but operational constraints like those aren’t a “show stopper” for the firm to invest in the market.

Free foodgrain scheme unlikely to stay beyond September: Ex-farm secretary

Under the scheme, the government has been distributing additional, free-of-cost foodgrains to around 800 million National Food Security Act beneficiaries to mitigate the hardships faced by the poor after  the outbreak of COVID-19. Centre yet to decide on extending free foodgrains scheme beyond September,  India free food grains

The Centre is unlikely to extend a scheme for providing free foodgrains to vulnerable sections beyond September, a former agriculture secretary said.

The government in April 2020 unveiled the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PM-GKAY), billed as the largest food security program in the world.

“After September it will not be extended, in my view,” Siraj Hussain, who as agriculture secretary oversaw formulation of several welfare schemes in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first term, told Moneycontrol.

“Neither we have the foodgrains nor do we have the money,” Siraj Hussain, who is the promoter of Arcus Policy Research, said. “We don’t have the resources and the economy is recovering so there is no need for extending it.”

Under PM-GKAY, the government has been distributing additional, free-of-cost foodgrains to around 800 million National Food Security Act (NFSA) beneficiaries to mitigate the hardships faced by the poor after the outbreak of COVID.

Five kilograms of foodgrains are provided per person per month to all NFSA beneficiaries, in addition to the normal quota of heavily subsidised foodgrains under the Act.

PM-GKAY was initially operational from April to June 2020, but it has since been extended multiple times. It is currently in force until September-end.

The scheme, fully funded by the Centre, would have entailed a total expenditure of nearly Rs 3.40 lakh crore if it ceases this month.

Expenditure management

The government is on course to maintaining its budget deficit at the targeted 6.4 percent of GDP in this financial year, but is yet to decide on extending the free foodgrains scheme beyond September, Finance Secretary T V Somanathan said last week.

Maintaining the fiscal deficit will require deft expenditure management.

Meanwhile, food prices have been on an upswing globally since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February. Changing weather patterns have hurt sowing of summer-sown crops and food stocks have dipped. India has curbed outbound shipments of wheat and wheat flour. It has also prohibited exports of broken rice and imposed a levy on shipments of unmilled and husked brown varieties.

India’s rice stocks in the central pool as of August 1 stood at 279.52 lakh tonnes and those of wheat at 266.45 lakh tonnes, according to the Food Corporation of India (FCI).

According to the buffer norms, FCI should have 102.5 lakh tonnes of rice and 205.2 lakh tonnes of wheat, including 20 lakh tonnes of rice and 30 lakh tonnes of wheat in strategic reserves as on October 1.

The aggregate allocation of free foodgrains under the PM-GKAY will stand at an estimated 1,003 lakh tonnes at the end of September.

Rural vs. urban economy 

To ensure foodgrain stock management, the government substituted a quantity of about 11.06 lakh tonnes of wheat per month under the scheme into rice for five months from May to September.

Meanwhile, the economy has been on an upswing, as indicated by a recent spate of data. Inflation, which is still above the central bank’s medium-term target, has also come off eight-year highs.

To be sure, the decision on extension of the scheme will also depend on the government’s assessment of the rural economy, which is trailing the urban economy.

Automobile retail sales in India increase by 8.31% in August: FADA

Retail sales of automobiles in India grew 8.31% in August this year on the back of increase in registrations of vehicles across all major segments, automobile dealers' body FADA said on Thursday.

automobile

Retail sales of automobiles in India grew 8.31 per cent in August this year on the back of increase in registrations of vehicles across all major segments, automobile dealers' body FADA said on Thursday.

As per data released by the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA), total vehicle retail sales in the country stood at 15,21,490 units last month as compared to 14,04,704 units in August 2021.

Passenger vehicles (PV) retail sales stood at 2,74,448 units as compared to 2,57,672 units in the year-ago month, a growth of 6.51 per cent.

Two-wheeler (2W) retail sales also grew by 8.52 per cent at 10,74,266 units in August 2022 as against 9,89,969 units in the same month last year, it added.

FADA said the three-wheeler (3W) segment witnessed the highest growth rate last month posting 83.14 per cent increase at 56,313 units, up from 30,748 units in the same month a year ago.

robust 24.12 per cent growth at 67,158 units as against 54,107 units in the year-ago month.

FADA President Manish Raj Singhania said August retail sales were not encouraging and not as per expectations of dealers, who anticipated a good start to the festive season with Ganesh Chaturthi.

"When compared with August 2019, a pre-COVID month, total vehicle retails fell by 7 per cent. While PV outperformed handsomely by growing 41 per cent, CV also turned positive by growing 6 per cent and thus came out of the COVID blues. All the other segments were in the red with 2W, 3W and tractors falling by 16 per cent, 1 per cent and 7 per cent, respectively," he added.

Singhania said although the 2W segment grew 8.5 per cent last month on a year-on-year basis, "it continues to face COVID blues due to underperformance of Bharat (rural India) and is still not above 2019 levels".

"This coupled with price hikes has made the 2W product out of reach for most entry-level customers. With erratic monsoon, the crop realisation has been low and flood-like situation has restricted customer movement," he said.

On the other hand, the PV segment continues to be on a strong run as demand for all sub categories of vehicles except entry-level remained strong.

"This is also aided by new feature-rich launches which OEMs have been doing since the last few months. With semiconductor shortage slowly becoming a passe, vehicle availability has definitely improved but waiting period continues to remain due to high demand in higher feature rich variants," Singhania said.

Similarly, he said the CV segment also continues to witness an upswing in economic activities post monsoon.

The government's infrastructure push, new launches by OEMs and better conversion in fleet operations has kept the segment in the green, he said, adding "the passenger carrier segment is also showing good demand due to increased buying from educational institutions".

The 3W space has now also equalled 2019 sales for the first time. Electrification is also the highest in this category with e-rickshaw leading the way.

"There is a clear indication that customers are now preferring electric vehicles over internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles as ICE 3W continues to see double-digit degrowth when compared to pre-COVID levels," Singhania said.

On the outlook, FADA said , with easing of supply, the PV segment will definitely see the best ever festivities (Navratri and Diwali) in the last one decade.

"Along with this, if vehicle prices continue to remain stable and there are no more health related threats, we may see an uptick in the much awaited 2W space which has not shown the required growth since last festivals."

While Onam and Navratri fall in September, the month also has 15-day period of Shraadh, generally considered as an inauspicious period for buying vehicles, it added.

Monetary, fiscal policies share burden of lowering inflation, says FM Sitharaman

In her speech today, the finance minster said the Indian experience over the last couple of years had shown that monetary policy, while key, was not enough to reduce inflation.Inflation India: CPI at 17-mth high: FM Sitharaman says India has not  breached inflation target 'so badly' - The Economic Times

Interest rate actions by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) alone cannot lower inflation and the burden is being shared with fiscal policy, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on September 8.

Sitharaman also seemingly suggested that the RBI may not have to take as much action as central banks of developed countries to bring down inflation.

"The Reserve Bank will have to synchronise. It may not synchronise as much as developed central banks," she said while speaking at the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations conference on taming inflation.

"I am not prescribing anything to the Reserve Bank, I am not giving any forward direction to the central bank. But it is the truth - India's solution to handling the economy, part of which is handling inflation also, is an exercise where the fiscal policy together with monetary policy has been at work. It can't be singularly left to monetary policy, which has proved totally ineffective in many countries," Sitharaman said.

The finance minister's comments came on the back of a steep rate hike cycle by the RBI, with its Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) having hiked the repo rate by a massive 140 basis points to 5.4 percent in the last four months to fight elevated inflation.

India's Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation eased to a five-month low of 6.71 percent in July. However, it has spent seven straight months outside the RBI's 2-6 percent tolerance range. The central bank is only two months away from failure, which occurs when the average inflation stays beyond the tolerance range for three consecutive quarters. Moreover, inflation has been above the medium-term target of 4 percent for 34 consecutive months.

In the event of a failure, the RBI must submit a report to the government detailing the reasons for the failure, the steps it plans to take to revert inflation to the target, and the time it thinks it would take.

Economists see another rate hike by the MPC at its next meeting later this month, with a terminal repo rate of around 6 percent expected to be reached by the end of 2022.

In her speech today, the finance minster said the Indian experience over the last couple of years had shown that the monetary policy, while key, was not enough to reduce inflation.

"India's experience in handling inflation depends so much on so many different factors. The central bank, its instruments, its interest rate management form a very critical part of it, but it cannot be the one and only one," she said.

The RBI has been cognisant of the role played by the government. On August 5, Governor Shaktikanta Das had said in his statement while announcing the MPC's decision that the government's supply-side interventions were expected to further bring down edible oil prices.

More broadly, external member Ashima Goyal noted in the minutes of the August 3-5 meeting that "coordinated fiscal and monetary policy action to reduce inflation while maintaining adequate demand has worked well".

CreditSights's report late last month calling the conglomerate "deeply overleveraged" and flagging other risks had sent shares of many Adani  down.

The  research firm said in a report dated Sept. 7 that it had spoken with Adani Group's finance and other executives and reconciled some figures for Adani Transmission and Adani Power.

"Management views that the group's leverage is at manageable levels, and that its expansion plans have not been mainly  funded," CreditSights said about the group that has announced deals worth billions of dollars this year alone.

For Adani Transmission, CreditSights corrected its earnings before interest, tax and amortisation (EBITDA), or core profit, estimate to 52 billion rupees ($652.45 million) from 42 billion rupees earlier. For Adani Power, it corrected its gross debt estimate to 489 billion rupees from 582 billion rupees.

It did not give the period for the estimates.

"These corrections did not change our investment recommendations," CreditSights said, adding that it, however, did not have formal recommendations on the two power and transmission .

The combined market value of the Adani Group's seven publicly traded companies - flagship Adani Enterprises, Adani Wilmar, Adani Ports, Adani Green Energy, Adani Transmission, Adani Total Gas and Adani Power - has increased about tenfold in the past three years to about $251 billion.

Ecuador reaches preliminary deals on oil, mining with indigenous groups

President Guillermo Lasso, a conservative ex-banker, opened a 90-day dialogue in July to hash out implementation of a deal, ending more than two weeks of indigenous protests against his economic and environmental agenda.

Ecuador reached a preliminary agreement with indigenous groups to declare a temporary moratorium on 16 oil blocks, Energy and Mining Minister Xavier Vera said on Wednesday, a turning point in negotiations aimed at staving off renewed street protests.

President Guillermo Lasso, a conservative ex-banker, opened a 90-day dialogue in July to hash out implementation of a deal, ending more than two weeks of indigenous protests against his economic and environmental agenda.

The demonstrations left at least eight people dead and severely impacted the oil industry. The protests forced price cuts to gasoline and diesel, and enactment of fertilizer subsidies and other measures the government says will cost $600 million.

Indigenous groups are demanding a moratorium on oil and resource extraction and for current concessions to be declared null. Lasso has agreed to suspend approvals for new projects in ancestral indigenous territory, environmentally-protected areas and archaeological zones.

"As the state we are showing that we are conceding to the request," Energy Minister Vera told reporters.

The moratorium will affect blocks in the south, where there are no exploration and production operations, and will be in place until a law establishes free and informed prior consultation, Vera said.

The government will also not grant any further mining concessions until the law for prior consultation has been approved, Vera said, expecting that in the next 12 months.

Exports from Ecuador's two large-scale gold and copper mines are quickly making the sector one of the country's most fiscally important. Ecuador expects mineral sales of at least $2.8 billion this year.

"Our position is no to mining, that is the starting point and from there we'll see the government's proposal" said Gilberto Talahua, president of an indigenous group from Bolivar province. Bolivar is home to the Curipamba copper project, set to become Ecuador's third major mine.

The agreements regarding oil and mining will be signed on Friday, as will deals on advancing productivity and fuel subsidies, the government said.

Indigenous leaders were not immediately available to comment on the preliminary deals laid out by Vera.

The only deal signed so far is on debt forgiveness for small-scale farmers, with some indigenous leaders threatening to abandon negotiations if progress is not made more quickly.

"We might not have another option but renewed presence in the streets," negotiator Blanca Chancoso, ex-president of the Ecuarunari indigenous organization, told Reuters.

"The strike hasn't ended for us … We hope (negotiations) won't just be a waste."

Other areas up for discussion in the talks set to last until mid-October, include price controls on more than 40 basic products.

The government says it is engaging with all protester demands as Lasso looks to reach agreements with indigenous groups.

Former Energy Minister Fernando Santos told Reuters, however, he was not so sure a successful deal could be reached.

"The government is weak and President Lasso is very proud. He won't cede even by accident to indigenous demands, and Mr. Iza also has a triumphal position where he wants all or nothing," Santos said, referring to indigenous leader Leonidas Iza.

"I see difficult days and no will to make agreements," Santos said, adding oil and mining could stagnate.

Lasso's office directed questions to the ministry of government, which said it could not grant Reuters an interview until later this week.

Fuel subsidies will cost about $3.8 billion this year, more than annual public budgets for health, education and security.

"In these conditions it's difficult to tilt the balance toward the negotiations," said political analyst Alfredo Espinosa, who blames Lasso's unpopularity and his disconnection from citizens.

"It's like a hostage negotiating with their captor, which is the indigenous movement."
