Dear Niveshaks,
We hope that the month of March had brought with it lots of joys and colours with the festival of Holi. The month saw RBI cutting down the repo rate by 25 basis points to 7.5 percent from 7.75 percent with immediate effect citing that the fiscal consolidation was better than what numbers show and that the combined fiscal deficit is much lower due to government transferring more funds to the states.

The National Payments Corporation of India announced linking of 15 crore Aadhaar cards with various bank accounts in India and is expected to reach its target of linking all 17 crore DBT accounts with Aadhaar numbers by 30th June 2015.

On the global front, we saw the three nations from European Union (EU) France, Germany and Italy agreeing to join the China-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) which seeks to provide support to infrastructure projects in Asia. India also witnessed a two-day visit of IMF chief Christine Lagarde and she supported the tight monetary stance of the RBI and said that 5 percent inflation is still high.

Our cover story “Sectoral Analysis of Union Budget 2015” highlights the effect of budget on various sectors & the lucrative sectors that the investor community would be eyeing in the future. We all are aware about the “Make in India Campaign” and how the government is publicizing it with their full efforts. But can we go forward by merely copying the Chinese Model, or the change in conditions would require better policies? Our Article of the month tries to answer this question. Our other section FinGyaan would highlight how the economies of China & US are intertwined through currency & debt even when they have big political differences. The Finsight column covers the effect of falling oil prices on Asian countries. Our FinLife portion of the magazine would inform you about the advantages and disadvantages of having Bullion as a part of your portfolio. This month’s FinView hosted the interview of Vishal Khandelwal – Founder of who has shared with us the investment lessons & mistakes an investor should be aware of and his views about the current situation of Indian Stock Market.
