PROPOSED GUIDANCE VALUE INCREASE BY KARNATAKA GOVERNMENT.

Prposed Increase of Guidance Value by Karnataka Government
Some reactions from the Industry Leaders.

Mr.Vishwa Prathap Desu,Sr.Vice President,sales & Marketing,Brigade Enterprises ;
The proposed increase in guidance value of upto 20% will impact the 
end price for customers.The markets have been slowly looking up and
this comes as a dampener.This move may affect the sentiment . We hope  government reconsiders this decision to increase the guidance Value.

Mr.Darshan Govindarju,Director,Vaishnavi Group.
The proposal to increase the guideline values in Bengaluru is "Ill Timed"
and is quite likely to have a direct impact on a market which is otherwise 
showing positive growth. It may well turn out to be dampener for the Bengaluru
residential real estate in general.

Mr.Preenand Premachandran-CEO,Hebron Properties.
Guidance value brings more sanity in the property values.The fact that the
government is raising the guidance value shows that the real estate market is 
picking up now.

Mr.Suresh Hari,Treasurer,CREDAI Karnataka.
Guidance rate increase is very regressive step.Stamp duty should be 
minimum and in line with the value of service rendered & the cost per
unit to a buyer will increase.

WHY SHOULD RUPEE KEEP ON WEAKENING?

WEAK RUPEE- WHY IT IS Rs.71/- AGAINST DOLLAR?

The Indian Rupee is presently quoting Rs.71/- against US Dollar.It helps
the Exporters,NRI's and Indians Living abroad.But a weak Rupee is a
Bane for the people living in the country.Is it due to mishandling or a
deliberate move to keep the rupee weak so that the exporters ,NRI's 
benefit?.India is importing 85% of its fuel requirements and a weak
rupee is affecting the resident Indians as the fuel prices are surging to 
new heights.

I give below how Rupee is valued against small Asian  countries :( One Unit)
1.Malaysian Ringit                  : Rs.17.25
2.Singapore Dollar                  : Rs.51.88
3.Maldivian Rufiaa                 : Rs.4.60
4.Philippine Peso                    :Rs.1.33
5.Thailand Baht                     :Rs.2.74
6.Taiwanese Dollar                : Rs.2.31.

Against Mauritian Rupee ( One Unit) It is Rs.2.06.
Against Seychelles Rupee (One Unit)  It is Rs.5.23.
Against Ghana Cedi   ( One Unit)       It is Rs.14.85.

It is reported that India is going to be the third largest Economy,with its
vast size,Big Consumer market,one wonders why the Indian Rupee should
keep on becoming weak.Internationally,a currency tells the economic
condition of the country. Is weak rupee benefiting only the rich ?.

AERO INDIA 2019.

AERO INDIA 2019.

There is a move to shift the Biennial  Aero Show from Bengaluru
to Lucknow.Bengaluru is hosting the Aero Show continuously for
22 years and Bengaluru has become a brand and an aviation hub
and India's pride.There is an argument that why should only 
Bengaluru host the show & why not other centres too?. In the
 world over,aviation shows are held only in a particular city as there
is infrastructure and the visitors are familiar with the city as they have 
to the earlier shows.To cite an example the famous Farnborough 
air show in UK which is held there since 1948.

Hence, Bengaluru is an ideal destination for the aero show and
it should remain as an ideal city to conduct aero show.
