Recently, the Reserve Bank of India has increased the interest rate on home loans twice in a short space of time. In addition to this, it is expected that there will be another hike of 25 points in the repo rate. This has prompted private banks like ICICI to increase theinterest rates for the home loan by 15 basis points on both the 6 month and 1 year scheme. Government owned banks such as SBI have also increased the interest rate from 8.25% to 8.45%. This is an increase of 20 basis points.

When you are buying a house there are taxes that you need to pay when you get the possession of the house. But there are ways where you can save on these taxes. One of the ways you can save these taxes is when you invest in an under construction house. Under the section 80C of the Indian income tax code, we do not have to pay taxes for a property when it is under construction.

Here are a few conditions where the tax deductions are not applicable:

  1. If you have any property that is under construction

Exposing tax dodgers is a worthy endeavor, but the “limited hangout” of the Panama Papers may have less noble ends, dovetailing with the War on Cash and the imminent threat of massive bail-ins of depositor funds.

Japan has joined the EU, Denmark, Switzerland and Sweden in imposing negative interest rates. Indeed, more than a fifth of the world’s GDP is now covered by a central bank with negative interest rates.

The Wall Street Journal notes:

TOKYO—Japan’s central bank stunned the markets Friday by setting the country’s first negative interest rates, in a desperate attempt to keep the economy from sliding ba

In uncertain times, “cash is king,” but central bankers are systematically moving to eliminate that option. Is it really about stimulating the economy? Or is there some deeper, darker threat afoot?

One of the most common misunderstandings where Social Credit is concerned is the notion that the Social Credit diagnosis can be adequately summarized along the following lines: "The problem with the existing financial system is that the banks create money out of nothing in the form of bank credit and then proceed to charge interest on the money that they loan out. Unfortunately, they do not crea

Years ago negative interest rates were unheard of. Modeling assumptions (often purposely) excluded them due to their extremely low probability, it simply seemed counter intuitive that they could even be present in a market, and certainly if they did they seemed as if they’d be a rare blip and not a prolonged market environment.

Fast forward to today, and negative rates are rampant across the Euro Zone and continue to be a critically important issue in global finance. While the Bank of England has

In the 2012 edition of Occupy Money released last week, Professor Margrit Kennedy writes that a stunning 35% to 40% of everything we buy goes to interest. This interest goes to bankers, financiers, and bondholders, who take a 35% to 40% cut of our GDP. That helps explain how wealth is systematically transferred from Main Street to Wall Street. The rich get
