In a written reply in Lok Sabha, Nirmala Sitharaman said that among the 61 IPOs, 35 were below Rs 100 cr, while 4 were in the range of Rs 100 cr & less than Rs 500 crore.
Modi government’s policy response to Covid — focusing on directed credit to the distressed — was prudent, even if unpopular.
MPs raised a number of questions in the context of an upcoming Bill that aims to 'prohibit' private cryptocurrencies, but Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman offered few answers.
Sitharaman said Rs 37,134 crore and Rs 14,664 crore worth GST compensation is yet to be released to states for 2020-21 and 2021-22 fiscal years.
Sitharaman said the Modi govt doesn't collect data on Bitcoin transactions. Centre plans to introduce cryptocurrency bill that seeks to ban all but a few private cryptocurrencies.
Speaking at an event in Jammu Tuesday, Sitharaman said the govt is actively pursuing the cases of loan defaulters, irrespective of whether they are in India or outside the country.
India’s vaccination achievement, climate change initiatives, employment and farmers were among the issues discussed as part of the resolution at BJP National Executive meet.
Sitharaman participated in the meet for discussion on long-term challenges in pandemic prevention, preparedness & response and strengthening global health financing governance.
Sitharaman said any delay won't be due to a lack of political will. The 65-year old insurer's internal valuation hasn't been done & the process will take time, she added.
Addressing global business leaders at a roundtable organised by FICCI & US-India Strategic Partnership Forum, Sitharaman also talked about fintech & role of tech in financial sector.
