Inflation Indexed National Saving Securities announced

Last week, RBI announced the details of the much-awaited Inflation Indexed National Saving Securities for the retail investors; to be launched in the 2nd half of this month. These would be cumulative in nature and hence are designated as Inflation Indexed National Saving Securities - Cumulative or IINSS-C. Non-cumulative securities would be introduced in due course of time.

Rate of interest: 1.5% + Inflation rate  [So if inflation is 10%, interest rate would be 11.5%]
