New govt should abolish short-term capital gains tax, open market to NRIs
May, 12th 2014

What do you think are the most important reforms required in the capital markets that the new government should focus on to provide a direction and boost to the capital markets?

I am of the view that the policy framework must address the macro-level issues to boost confidence in the economy. The economic growth happens either through accelerated investments or through higher levels of consumption, which increases incomes and investments.

Thirdly, settle all the environment-related disputes for the projects that have been started but are stuck due to a lack of policy clarity about the future. Above all, the single most definitive factor that adversely affected foreign direct investment into the country — ‘The Great Indian Corruption Story’ — must be reversed once and for
