Lone ranger Rajan fights for RBI autonomy amid rate cut rants
MUMBAI, Dec 21 (Agencies): Raghuram Rajan says he is neither Superman nor James Bond, but he appears to have emerged as a 'lone ranger' -- fighting persistent rate cut demands, "schizophrenic" attempts to weaken RBI and even rumours about he being 'kicked up' from the Mint Street high seat. As 2014 draws to a close, Rajan in his first full year as RBI Governor seems to have followed the principle laid out by former US Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke, who had famously said that "the central bank needs to be able to make policy without short term political concerns". While demands and complaints continued to pour in regularly from the government and the industry for a rate cut, Rajan held onto RBI's fight against inflation and to maintain growth without budging once and rather surprise...

Make tax evasion serious crime for black money info: SIT
NEW DELHI, Dec 14 (Agencies): Tax evasion needs to be made a serious 'criminal offence' to force foreign countries to reveal names and account details of Indians stashing illicit wealth abroad, the Special Investigation Team on black money has said. While adding more teeth to India's pursuit of black money kept abroad, this would also check generation of unaccounted wealth within the country, the SIT Chairman M B Shah said.
