  1. Though it is a good fund to invest, infra stocks have gone up 100/200 %

    A good review of the Fund.

  3. I just ask myself if metals and minerals are a part of infrastructure?!?

  4. That's what the Reliance MF's brochure says. You would be surprised , they have included banking as well, probably they are the lenders to the infra companies. They want to sell the product somehow !

    There is a probability of NAV going down to 30 to 40 % in the initial stages. Better to grab the units at that time as in the long run this fund is sure to perform.

  6. one of the worst fund, the buying rate was 10.25 when sensex was 14000 and now 8.92 even though the sensex is around 18000.

    I don't know how they are manipulating

  7. The infra stocks have taken quite a beating. We had recommended a wait and buy approach, in the review above.
    Also it is better go for a diversified equity fund than a sectoral fund.

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.
