New Delhi, May 27

For healthy growth of the capital markets, the CII National Council has recommended that any gain arising after 30 days but before 365 days should be termed as a short-term capital gain.

Any gain before 30 days could be considered as a trading income.

The options market suffers from lack of liquidity.

Enhancing liquidity in the options markets to facilitate trade at reasonable prices is required to encourage investors to hedge their portfolios and facilitate companies to manage risks, it suggests.

The raising of resources in primary markets should be encouraged.

The council observed that about 70-80 companies have raised resources to the tune of $28 billion in the last two years through primary markets.

The council has said that more companies should take advantage of the Qualified Institutional Placement route for raising funds.
