Bharatiya Mahila Bank: Let this not be another UID or NREGA

If the idea is to bring banking funds closer to women and hence encourage inclusive lending, could this not have been done through the existing channels? #All women's bank #ATM #Banking #Bharatiya Mahila Bank #loans #P. Chidambaram #Prime lending #RBI #saving rate

Understanding what S&P’s warning means for India

S&P does point out that whatever fiscal discipline that has been achieved so far has been at the cost of cutting down on development project expenditure or selling state enterprises. #Economy #fiscal deficit #InMyOpinion #Investing #RBI #S&P #Sovereign debt crisis

Rupee hits 64 again: Don’t expect quick recovery, volatility will rule

The rupee cannot recover sharply due to just positive sentiment. #appreciation #Currency #currency deratives #depreciation #ecomony #India #Market Sentiment #Money #Rupee
