This trend is reflective in economy improving further with green shoots amply visible – attractive interest rates, rise in GST Collections, digitalisation-driven efficiencies making Indian corporates healthier, conducive GoI policy for attracting FDI and continued surge in FII investment coupled with favourable geo-political scenario would continue to keep Indian equity markets an attractive investment destination over a long term,” N S Venkatesh, CEO, AMFI said.
