FINANCE TIP OF THE DAY
Can you afford your loan?!
Know the quantity of loan you can afford. The banks may sanction loan based on your income but you should look at your monthly expenditure and see if you can afford the maximum that banks offer. As a thumb rule, remember not to let your credit exceed 40% of your income!
Rates Hike is likely To Curb the Inflation
A recent press report said that the Reserve Bank of India’s hike in the interest rates will depend upon the inflation persistence. Dr. Subir Gokran the Deputy Governor Reserve Bank of India told the press that the if central Bank raises the interest rate and it is not the end in itself, if the problem exists for a long time the it will raise the interest rate. And in contrast if the situation is simplified then there is a positive change in the interest rate.
Dr. Gokran said the main factor for the inflation is raise in the income levels, and secondly the influence of Politics is not that much effective over this problem. As a result these factors act as the inducing powers in increasing the tolerance limit of inflation.
In Earlier Days the increase in the inflation 8-9% creates the political issue; the voice has been raised against it but only up to certain extent, because the first factor has more impact on this issue.
The Central Bank increased the Repo rate 12 times and also the basis point cumulatively to reduce the inflationary pressure. The rate hikes favour for the inflation and it acquires the prominent place. It is well seen in the Whole Sale Price Index inflation which exists above 9% for nine months uninterruptedly. The continuous hike has made home loan, car loans, personal loans etc more expensive.
