Investment limit on infrastructure bonds may rise to Rs 50,000





NEW DELHI: The government is considering more than doubling the investment limit in infrastructure bonds eligible for tax rebates as part of a strategy to provide a funding boost to a vital sector while having a beneficial effect across the economy.

Officials told ET the finance ministry's department of economic affairs, as part of its suggestions for the 2012-13 budget, had proposed raising the investment limit in these bonds to Rs 50,000 from Rs 20,000 now. The revenue department is expected to take a final decision after weighing expected economic gains against short-term revenue losses.
