WPI inflation moves higher to 10.55% in June

The double digit inflation in June could be partly attributed to low base in the year-ago period when inflation was at -1.01%, which means even a small increase now would seem large

India’s wholesale price index (WPI) based inflation inched higher to 10.55% in June, owing to the pass through effect of the 25th June hike in prices of petroleum products, reports PTI.

The WPI numbers were provisionally 10.16% in May, while it was revised upwards to 11.23% for April from the provisional 9.59%.

However, the double digit inflation in June could be partly attributed to low base in the year-ago period when the inflation was at -1.01%, which means even a small increase now would seem large.

In June, the fuel index rose by 1.7%, due to higher prices of kerosene (9%), electricity (4%), petrol (2%) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) (3%).

The country's chief economic adviser Kaushik Basu had last month said he expects the hike in fuel prices to lead to one percentage point rise in inflation.

The prices of food articles rose marginally by 0.20% during June as prices of cereals, rice and wheat declined on a month-on-month basis.

Among manufactured items, wood products prices rose by 5.4% due to higher rates of plywood commercial planks.

Food inflation remained in double digits at 12.63% for the week ended 19th June, having moderated from over 16% level in the preceding eight weeks.

Among primary (raw) food items, urad turned costlier by 9%, meat by 7%, fish-marine (5%) and spices (3%).

The double digit inflation may put pressure on the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to raise key policy rates to tighten money supply at its 27th July monetary policy review. The central bank has already raised rates thrice this year to combat high inflation.

Analysts said July figures are likely to be higher, as the hike in the prices of petroleum products would be reflected fully.

The government on 25th June had hiked petrol prices by Rs3.5 a litre while deregulating its pricing, and diesel by Rs2 a litre. Besides, it raised prices of LPG (cooking gas) by Rs35 a cylinder and kerosene by Rs3 a litre.

CAMS launches eNFO service to support online submission of NFO applications

The facility will enable fund applicants to submit applications within time in an easy and hassle-free manner

From this month onwards, applying for a new fund offer (NFO) will be a whole new ball game as the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has changed the NFO environment drastically. It has reduced the window for listing of NFOs to 15 days from the earlier 30 days and has also brought down the allotment to 5 days from the earlier 30 days. This will now bring down the processing time for completion of NFOs from 60 days to an astounding 20 days only.

This move will also bring with it concerns for investors about whether they will be able to submit their applications on time. Advisors will also be worried as to whether they would be able to execute client orders in time.

To address these concerns, the registrar and transfer agent Computer Age Management Services (CAMS) has come out with an online service ‘eNFO’ to support online submission of NFO applications. It is another ‘industry first’ initiative from CAMS, which will simplify the application process for all participants.

It will also enable AMCs to reach and collect applications from multiple cities where there are no official transaction points. The facility will be available to investors on the CAMS website, www.camsonline.com.

I am not sure what they mean by 'another industry first'. All online mutual fund platforms including us - fundsindia.com - has been accepting online application for NFOs and other schemes. The article does not give any info. and just calls it 'another industry first'. Moneylife wake up!!

I couldn't find this facility when I checked their site. So when is it going to go live? Shouldn't you get something up and then send out a press release advertising it?

Anyway, lately CAMS has been lax when it comes to processing paperwork because of which they must have decided to come up with this. So, complaining does work sometimes!

ONCE SOMEONE HAS BANK A/C AND HIS PROFILE HAS PAN CARD ALL OTHER INVESTMENT A/CS SHOULD BE OPENED WITHOUT ASKING FOR ANY ADDITIONAL PROOFS LIKE ADDRESS PROOF ETC ETC.
JUST STRAIGHT AWAY OPEN THE INVESTMENT, DEMAT MUTUAL FUND ETC ETC FOR THAT CUSTOMER.
EVEN DEPOSITORIES MUST ACCEPT THE CERTIFICATED APPL FOR DEMAT A/CS ETC AND NOT INSIST ON WHOLE LOT OF PAPERS TO BE SUBMITTED AGAIN.

MORE IMPORTANTLY ALL BANKS MUST COMPULSORILY SCAN ALL DOCS LIKE PAN CARD , ADDRESS PROOF ETC AND KEEP ATTACHED LIKE WITH SCANNED SIGNATURE CARDS WHICH CAN BE FORWARDED, PRINTED FOR ALL PURPOSES AND ACCEPTABLE AS PROOFS.
