Spice Tele Communications - What's the buzz?

Spice Communications has gone up from Rs.27 to Rs. 92 in just two trading sessions. The stock is NOT in derivatives segment, but there was also no daily filter of 20% as with usual stocks. It has more than trebled since last week.

Idea Cellular Limited (Idea) together with its associate namely Green Acres Agro Services Pvt. Ltd., currently holds 49.9% equity in Spice Communications Limited (Spice). The other major shareholder in Spice is TMI India Limited which holds around 49.0% equity. The balance around 1.1% alone is held by public.

The share price is been jacked up due to low availability of the stock.

As prospective bidders for crisis-ridden Satyam Computer Services start lining up, industrialist BK Modi also joined the fray to buy out the IT firm.

Modi, however, made it clear that the group would be interested in buying out Satyam and that it was not looking at a piecemeal acquisition. He added that he saw Rs 2,000 crore as a benchmark for Satyam. Modi also said he had a full team in place for Satyam, in case of a takeover.


L&T is in the also in the fray by increasing its stake in Satyam, so Modi's Satyam venture will not be that easy.

It is better to avoid both Satyam computers and Spice Communications

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.




You could just try the same here at Moneycontrol Terminal
