GAAR adding to investors' anxiety: ICRA

West Bengal,Business/Economy, Thu, 26 Apr 2012 IANS

Kolkata, April 26 (IANS) Credit rating agency ICRA Thursday said the provisions of the General Anti-Avoidance Rules (GAAR) prescribed in this year's budget has added to investors' anxiety.


"Not lack of confidence... but it (GAAR) has added to some anxiety (among investors)," ICRA chief executive P.K. Choudhury told reporters on the sidelines of a programme organised by the Institute of Company Secretaries of India here.


Referring to the probable impact of GAAR on foreign institutional investors (FIIs) in India, Choudhury said: "I do not think that funds are moving out in large scale (from the country) because of GAAR... because they (investors) are not going to concentrate on one aspect... they are concentrating on many aspects. It is a very complex issue when a fund decides to exit a country."


As the provisions of the anti-avoidance rules have hurt the business sentiment of India Inc, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee recently said he might modify some of the provisions.


Choudhury said the government's clarifications were not "fully satisfactory".
