    Every where when the rates are going up, what government playing joke especially with old age interest earning people. Why can’t salary and allowances of all MPs be reduced? Why pension of MPs be terminated who works? only for 5 years and then whole the life becomes load on people.

    I agree with the views of Mr. Ramamurthy – With inflation rate @ 10.5 plus the net return from deposits will be in negative. Is anybody going to justify this.

  3. Ramamurthy says:

    Consumer Price Index is hovering around 10.5% and will certainly stay there and may even go up during 2013-2014.Yet our Govt. is reducing the interest rates.What is the logic please?
    I know Govt may introduce inflation adjusted Bonds.Knowing my Govt.these Bonds when introduced will be a total flop.
