    No bro, shops at ORN provides the old material. I cannot say as it is not done in the classes yet. Will update you once it is done :)

  • Sinha once said that for the betterment of Bond market, policy on withholding tax should be equalized,

    please Comment,

    Waise janta kum hai yaha but fir bhi umeed kayam hai. :)

  • hi guys,

    good to see commerce guys over here.
    how about a quick intro ?
    ·
  • Uncoordinated withholding tax policy is a recurring source of uncertainty and cost
    for retail and institutional investors in corporate bond markets, and has a particularly
    deadening effect on retail markets. Unilateral withholding of tax from interest paid to
    foreign investors disadvantages those investors and so deters them from investing:
    at worst they cannot recover double tax, and at best there is a delay before they
    are reimbursed the excess tax paid. Either way, international investment is inhibited.

    quoting from a report.. hope it helps:)
    ·
  • the point which sinha made was related to domestic bond investors are not treated equally in taxation hence its a barrier in the market participation, i just wanted to know the difference in taxation in these two classes of investors,

    I think its on US bond market and published by CIMA, this report talks about the problems for foreign investors but Sinha was talking about the problems of domestic players and the discrimination they face.

  • For domestic investors , i read in the same report that there is a discrepancy in taxation as equity is taxed at 0% and bond interest is taxed at different rates of 10 and 20%,

    so i guess smoothening of this tax discrepancy will attract retail indian investors.

  • since the forum has a few serious commerce optional candidates, i was thinking if we can use it to carry on some discussions daily on current commerce topics ......since everybody does conventional topics... but this news related one can be discussed here....also we can post our doubts which will help us all cover the vast syllabus...please give your suggestions:)
    ·
  • Great Idea, I think paper two need more inclination towards the current happenings in the market, Paper one is almost entirely static in nature, please comment if am not getting it correctly.
    ·
  • @NikolaTesla Indeed Paper 1 is mostly static and every year different types of sums are given, for example in taxation, the head which was asked in previous 2-3 years has very minimal chance of repeating itself. Though theories may repeat themselves. analysis of past 5 years paper is important.
    And for paper 2, many questions are taken from current point of view, but that question's solution is mostly from static understanding of syllabus, we just need to answer them in current perspective with some relevant examples, and a few new terminologies can make their way into paper so for paper 2 current happenings is very much relevant.

    Bro i joined postal course of Rankers, They said it is enough for preparation.

    Bhai, I haven't joined for p2 as it is doable. But sir do uses those notes and discuss the analytical question mentioned in the end of every chapter.

    One thing is appreciable that he keeps updating his notes.

  • @Confused_soul
    Agreed that P2 is doable, But Rankers note are very brief and to the point and only relevant topics are there, i have many other books which are more bulky than 2-3 topics notes combined :-w
    By the way what they say about the optional in classes? i personaly feel papr 1 more marks fetching.
    And what is your strategy regarding tackling paper 2's intense love with current happenings???

    Actually, i got to know now only that we have to cover current happenings too for paper 2. :P i will be asking this question from Sir in the next class.

    Now, i am confused whether i should simply follow rankers notes and focus of revising and re-revising. Parth gautam(240 marks) relied on ranker notes only whereas Raj karan aggarwal (272 marks) relied on various other books too.

    And definitely, paper 1 is more marks fetching due to numerical thing

  • Thats just matter of a question or two, which raj karan got right more than parth gautam.
    For papr 2 current happenings part, most questions quote some incidences or headings and then ask to relate static concept ...so understanding questions requirement is key to deciphering the expected answer, and this can be understood easily with help of R.S Agrawal sir @ Rankers only :-<
    But i think Rankers Notes are more than sufficient for Paper 1 , i have seen many ICAI IPCE level books and notes, which are of relatively higher difficulty than of UPSC CSE Commerce optional papr 1. So no need to focus on other books, re-re-revising is key....according to me...notes can be relied upon for both papers, and some HRM and other stream journals or websites for doses of current happenings

  • i have also joined rankers postal course .....and i feel it is sufficient with one standard book for deeper study....for current topics there is variation every year since last year paper was almost direct from books and static but 2013 one was terrifying... what about analysing previous year questions on this forum for strategising how to solve out of the box ques.... 2013 many ques of financial markets was directly picked from eco times headlines....and what sources r u using for paper 1 numerical practice
