Changes for growth

27 June, 2015: 0930 Hrs: Taj Bengal, Kolkata

India is on the cusp of becoming an engine for global economic growth. Strong regulatory regime of SEBI, the policy announcements of the new Government and the global economic recovery has built up investors’ confidence resulting in very good performance of the Indian stock market in the last few months, ranking among the world's best performers. Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) Regulation 2014 and Infrastructure Investment Trust (InvIT) 2014 have resulted positive movement of the market and more benefit is expected in the current year. Alternate Investment Funds (AIFs) introduced in the year 2012 more than doubled during the past year. SEBI has recently issued the regulation for the International Financial Services Centres and the first such centre will be developed in the GIFT City in Gujarat. This will potentially attract billions of dollars of global funds to the country. SEBI is coming out with regulations on Municipal Bonds very shortly and these Bonds will play a very important role in the aspirational ‘100 Smart Cities’ mission of the Government. However, the primary market route and pension fund has to be further encouraged to generate capital to fund and sustain India’s growth.
