The rate cut by the RBI led to a steep fall in bond yields on Friday. The benchmark 10-year bond yield dropped to 6.07% compared to the 6.7% it has averaged in the past one year.

That a big win because the Democratic bill was pushed by the U.S. tech industry, and was backed up Immigration Voice, a group that claims to represent Indian visa workers. … [Read more...] about India’s Unemployed H-1B Workers Lobby White House to Stay in the U.S.
