Budget 1997-98: Full Text
- Several countries have used a variety of indexed bonds
to provide investors an effective hedge against inflation
and to enhance the credibility of anti-inflationary
policies followed by the government. I believe the time
is ripe for India to introduce such an instrument. I,
therefore, propose to introduce a capital indexed bond
where the repayment of the principal amounts will be
indexed to inflation.
