Budget carrier SpiceJet's aircraft are currently grounded because oil companies have not refuelled any of its planes, a spokesman told Reuters today.

Loss-making SpiceJet owes money to creditors including oil companies.

On Tuesday, the civil aviation ministry said airport operators would be asked to give the airline 15 days to make payments, while state oil companies would be ask to give credit for up to 15 days.

The measures, the ministry said, were aimed at avoiding a collapse which it said would be a "major setback" for the civil aviation sector.

According to him, the global macros have turned decisively negative with oil prices falling the way they have. “One of the correlations that we have seen in the market is that when oil prices fall, Sensex falls as well. At Sensex level, you may still find some downside but there may be some stocks that you may want to look at, though I would say there is not any particular hurry right now,” he said.

In the currency market, he expects to see dollar going out from the debt market on carry trade but expect it to be replaced to some extent by yen.
