On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

Offshore rupee bonds on anvil for infra sector 21.2.2012 Financial Chronicle
The government may soon allow floating of rupee-denominated bonds for overseas investors, including retail participants, in a bid to mobilise a large volume of debt for infrastructure projects. This will be within the existing cap of $25 billion fixed for foreign institutional investors for investment in infrastructure projects. Finance minister Pran-ab Mukherjee is likely to announce the scheme in the general budget to be presented in Parliament on March 16. The plan is to target the US, Europe and key Asian emerging markets for mobilising rupee debt to fund long-term infrastructure projects in the roads, ports, airports, railways, power and telecom infra sectors. Accordingly, infrastructure finance companies, special purpose vehicles and core sector companies would be allowed to float rupee-denominated bonds in overseas markets. In effect, this will for the first time throw open rupee-denominated bonds floated by public and private sector firms to overseas retail investors, high net worth ...
