Entity called FII.............

Well, i have taken the reference from ET... FIIs are the key players in current stock markets..

Why they are so spl... lets have a look

  1. Foreign Institutional investors (FIIs) are entities established or incorporated outside India and make proposals for investments in India.
  2. These investment proposals by the FIIs are made on behalf of sub accounts, which may include foreign corporates, individuals , funds etc.
  3. In order to act as a banker to the FIIs, the RBI has designated banks that are authorised to deal with them.
  4. The biggest source through which FIIs invest is the issuance of Participatory Notes (P-Notes ), which are also known as Offshore Derivatives.

Can they invest in India?

  1. they can invest in the stocks and debentures of the Indian companies.
  2. In order to invest in the primary and secondary capital markets in India, they have to venture through the portfolio investment scheme (PIS).

According to RBI regulations, the ceiling for overall investment for FIIs is 24% of the paid up capital of the Indian company. The limit is 20% of the paid up capital in the case of public sector banks.

SEBI has allowed FIIs to invest in unlisted exchanges as well, which means both BSE and NSE (the unlisted bourses) can now allot shares to FIIs also.

Why are FIIs important for Indian mkts?

  1. FIIs are among the major sources of liquidity for the Indian markets.
  2. If FIIs are investing huge amounts in the Indian stock exchanges then it reflects their high confidence and a healthy investor sentiment for our markets.
  3. But with the current global financial turmoil and a liquidity and credit freeze in the international markets, FIIs have become net sellers (on a day to day basis).
  4. The entry of FIIs in India has brought mixed consequences for our markets, on one hand they have improved the breadth and depth of Indian markets and on the other hand they have also become the major sources of speculation in testing times like these.

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks.  The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have.  I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat.  I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing t
