  1. "Three Casualties of A Recent SEBI Diktat: FPIs, NRIs And Indian Investment Managers"

    Besides this immediate problem, the bigger issue is that SEBI and RBI are more and more making rules without any consultation with industry and citizen groups. There is no accountability at all and no sense of doing the right thing for the citizen or not impeding business without good reason. Letters/emails go unanswered. How is one supposed to make these institutions accountable? IMHO, these two institutions have gone completely rogue. What is one supposed to do?
