Hoarders, Beware!

Positive vital statistics last week created an atmosphere of exuberance and hope for both rural and urban economies. Latest data showed a 2% positive growth in industrial activities and a drop in retail inflation. Sensex also crossed 25K in just three trading sessions last week in anticipation of good days ahead. All these developments have one common trigger; India will get a good monsoon after two years. According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the country is expected to get above normal monsoon. What will be its impact? This is an alarm bell for such unscrupulous traders who are hoarding food grains to jack up rates for profiteering. After good monsoon food prices will fall. Fearing this, hoarders will be forced to bring out grains from their godowns. Food prices of most of the edible items, barring import dependent pulses, are expected to soften soon.

  1. I have learned a few important things by means of your post. I might also like to express that there will be a situation in which you will apply for a loan and do not need a co-signer such as a U.S. Student Support Loan. But when you are getting a loan through a common loan service then you need to be made ready to have a co-signer ready to assist you to. The lenders will probably base any decision over a few factors but the biggest will be your credit score. There are some financial institutions that will likewise look at your work history and come to a decision based on this but in most cases it will hinge on your ranking.
