  4. anand sir, please tell me about repo rate and reverse repo rate..... i want to know why do banks put their money with the reseve bank?
    I read recently that because the rupee has dropped to 50 a dollar,this is why the minor ups and downs in crude oil prices across the world don't affect India..why is it so?

  5. @ Vandana

    Repo Rate is the rate at which banks borrow money from the Reserve Bank for their short-term or immediate cash requirements

    Reverse Repo Rate is the rate at which Banks can park their surplus funds with Reserve Bank of India

    Reg. the price of oil & Rupee. The price of oil per barrel is always calculated in terms of US Dollars. If the Indian Rupee depreciates in value, then the price of petroleum products will go up for sure. It will have a definite impact.

    Let us say last month oil company buys one barrel of oil @ USD 95 per barrel and exchange rate was Rs. 48 per dollar. It means they have to spend Rs. 4560. Today if the price per barrel is the same USD 95 and exchange rate is Rs. 50 per dollar, the company spends Rs. 4750. So, they will spend more money which in turn will affect petrol prices in India


  6. thank you sir i got it ...still have another question to ask, I read that Kingfisher airlines is unable to pay its debts so it is hanging in troubles these days, some analysts say that the best option with Kingfisher is to officially file for bankruptcy... now since being a bankrupt is no lesser can FILING for it can help the company????

  7. @ Vandana

    Declaring Bankruptcy will not help the company but its owners. When a company declares bankruptcy the banks that have given loans to the company will face huge losses. The assets of the company owners may be used by banks to offset the losses but there will be a legal proceeding between the company declaring bankruptcy and the banks to decide who pays/gets how much money

  8. Its very informative, just i wanna knw the steps to get in.. Hw to buy, sell and hw to keep eyes on their index values?/

    1. Javith - First you need a PAN Card and then open a DEMAT & Trading Account using which you can start buying/selling shares. How to buy/sell, how to keep an eye on index values is a complicated process. You need a dedicated financial advisor. That much info cannot be shared by this comments section. If you have any specific queries please feel free to leave a comment and I will help you as much as possible

  10. hi sir..
    can u explain about the nifty and sensex index and how it is risky to trade in these indexes ??

    1. Read these articles:

  11. good morning,
    plss temme i f hold share for long term of any company atleast for one 2 year will i get bonus share .and what is eps means i think earning per share means i will get dividend on the basis of eps for instance, i buy icici bank 100 share and its eps is 200 so i will get 20000 thousand per year...plssss rply thankyou

    1. Hi Rakesh - Firstly, issuing bonus shares is a company's discretion. Just because you hold a share for 2 years doesnt mean you will get a bonus share. I know companies that havent issued bonus shares in many many years. Company's may issue bonus shares maybe only a few times (maybe once or twice) in their life time.

      EPS measures the amount of earnings per each outstanding share of a company’s stock.


      EPS = Net Profit / Total No. of Common Shares or

      EPS = Net Income / Total No. of Common Shares

      If a company makes an income of 1 lakh and has 10000 shares outstanding, the EPS = Rs. 100 per share. However, this does not mean the company is going to give 100 rupees to each shareholder.

      Dividend is usually mentioned as a % of the company's EPS. IF the company EPS is 100 rupees an dividend is 3 rupees then the Dividend Yield is 3%. You will get 3000 rupees as dividend if you have 1000 shares.

      There are many articles about stock market and investing in this link. Read them here:
