Budget 2014 and investing in NCDs.

Budget 2014 was presented amidst huge expectations from the new government at the centre. The much talked about fiscal deficit, the amount that the government spends over and above its income, has been maintained at the level that the previous government planned. Consequently, the quantum of borrowing by the new government too remains almost unchanged. This is positive for the bond markets including Non-Convertible Debenture (NCD) as any additional borrowing by the new government would have sent bond yields upwards and adversely impacted bond prices.
