Esteemed BRFites,.... with due respect, instead of comparing desis with DT-supporters, please steer the topic to a more relevant one.

Re: Currency Demonitisation and Future course of Indian Economy

[Let me try to address the long question Shiv-saar asked about demonetisation. may be too trivial, but seems like some BRFites are having trivial questions.] 1. Suppose there is Rs. 1000 in the economy out of which rs. 100 in small denominations, and remaining Rs. 900 in large denominations. 2. Out ...

Re: Currency Demonitisation and Future course of Indian Economy

Just to share my personal experience ...

So we had to rush with all bank passbooks,...

Here is one scheme reported by a Kolkata-based newspaper which apparently is making rounds. Due to PM-JDY a lot of poor rural folks have opened new bank accounts with very little balance most of the time.

Re: Budget 2016 - news & discussions

The latest Telegraph (Kolkata) article surmises the budget well; it has taken the wind away from the oppositions' sail. They are too confused to say if this is pro-poor or anti-poor. Stong emphasis on the rural economy in this budget has caught the opposition off guard.
