Finance Minister should take tips from Robert Vadra: BJP's attack in 10 points

The Congress has also tried to shore up support from its allies to combat the onslaught. UP powerhouse Mayawati showed she is a reliable friend by carefully stating that while the Congress should answer the questions around Mr Vadra, his mother-in-law cannot be held responsible even if graft is proven. Mayawati's BSP does not participate in the union government, but lends crucial external support along with Mulayam Singh Yadav and his Samjawadi Party.










Further, the government expects a natural compression in oil demand resulting in dollar savings of about $1.5 billion. This could go up if it is able to import more oil from Iran. As far as inflows are concerned, Power Finance Corporation, Indian Railways Finance Corporation and IIFCL would together raise $4 billion through quasi-sovereign bonds while public sector oil companies will raise overseas debt worth $4 billion. Liberalised norms for NRI deposit schemes could result in inflows of $1 billion and a liberal external commercial borrowings scheme will help fetch another $2 billion. Subsidiaries of multinational companies will be able to raise debt from parent companies and maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities for aircraft would be treated on par with airports for raising overseas debt as part of relaxation in the ECB rules to be announced by RBI shortly.
