Time to revisit deposit rates - Barendra Kumar Bhoi, Business Line
In October 2011, the Reserve Bank of India deregulated the interest rate on savings bank deposits in order to improve monetary policy transmission. However, the post-deregulation experience has been stickiness of this interest rate at 4 per cent offered by the public sector banks (PSBs) — a clear case of cartelisation by PSBs.
Political funding: Arun Jaitley may be right when he said victimisation kept India Inc from donating via cheque - Financial Express
Finance minister Arun Jaitley may well be right when he says the fear of victimisation has kept India Inc from donating to political parties by cheque—he has also removed the cap on donations now. If company A, according to this logic, gives funds to party B then, when it comes to power, party C will try and take revenge for funding rivals.
RBI chief Urjit Patel's new problem: Rupee surge, Banks awash with funds - Anirban Nag, NDTV
The rupee's surge and a banking system awash with funds will shift focus to a little-used tool in the Indian central bank's arsenal before next month's policy review.

RBI says it's still Tata to Docomo - Financial Express
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday once again opposed the $1.17 billion settlement between Tata Sons and Japan’s NTT DoCoMo, leaving the fate of the payment to the Delhi High Court. Consistent with its stand, first in February 2015 and subsequently in July 2016, the RBI told the court Tata Sons cannot pay DoCoMO despite the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) award in June 2016 as it would amount to violating the Foreign Exchange Management Act.
Liberating avenues for FDI - Katarzyna Kaszubska, Pioneer
