IndoNelson president Mini Howie, left, and project coordinator Yanthi Anderson, with batik fabric. A batik workshop is one of two June 11 events in Nelson celebrating Indonesian culture.

Excitement is building in the Indonesian community of Nelson, with two upcoming events showcasing their culture through food, performance and an ancient art form.

IndoNelson, a group made up of Indonesian families from the upper south and west coast, organizes the events as part of Nelson’s Tuku22 Heritage Festival.

A batik workshop, teaching the traditional art form of creating patterns on fabric with wax and dyes, will take place on June 11 during the day, before the culinary cultural experience Journey to Indonesia through the palace and the senses in the evening.

IndoNelson chairman Mini Howie said the group – which has around 60 member families in Nelson and Tasman – were delighted to promote their Indonesian culture. Among the dignitaries expected at the dinner were the region’s two mayors, the Member of Parliament for Nelson and the Indonesian Ambassador to New Zealand.

* New Zealand’s apple industry aims to be ‘spray-free’ by 2050
* Five Food Streets of Nelson Tasman

There were over 1,300 ethnicities in Indonesia, but the two upcoming events would focus on Javanese culture. Howie hoped that in the future other events could take place featuring other Indonesian ethnicities.

Handcrafted Indonesian batik was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list in 2009 and is internationally recognized as a historical fabric of human civilization.

Howie said workshop attendees will learn how batik was made in Indonesia 800 years ago, its meaning and importance, and the process of creation. They would also be given a “chant”, a tool used to apply liquid hot wax in the batik-making process.

The evening event centers around the traditional tumpengan culinary and cultural experience, which will include a range of traditional Indonesian dishes including Indonesian chicken satay and the popular meat dish rendang.

Tumpengan wasn’t just about the food, with the performance, ambiance and cultural experience being equally important, said project coordinator Yanthi Anderson.

Traditional gamelan – native orchestral music from Java and Bali – will be performed into the night by a 12-piece troupe from Wellington, while there will also be Indonesian dancers and a batik fashion slideshow.

The gamelan musicians also performed at the batik workshop in the morning.

IndoNelson's president, Mini Howie, shows off a singing tool and batik cloth.

Tumpengan was apt for the culinary event because while each part of the colorful dish symbolized a different aspect or stage of life, it also symbolized gratitude, the women said.

“We are so lucky to live in New Zealand,” Anderson said.

“For me and Yanthi, this is our home,” Howie said.

Both women are married to New Zealand-born men, with Anderson living in Nelson for about 18 years and Howie for about three years.

Howie said the events were a chance for people to enjoy Indonesian culture, and also for Indonesians living in the region to reconnect after the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions and celebrate their heritage.

“You don’t have to go to Indonesia to feel a little bit of Indonesia,” Anderson said.

Although there were still plenty of seats left for the batik workshop, tickets for the dining experience were soon to sell out, with over 100 of the 140 seats already booked.

Both events take place at the Saxton Oval Pavilion on June 11, with the batik workshop, which costs $30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The evening gastronomic cultural experience is $50 and will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Sign up at indonelsonnz.org.

Bonds issued by the government of India are known as G-Secs, or Government Securities and are often referred to as government bonds. Investing in Indian government bonds entitles you to be considered a lender of last resort. These G-Secs are sold to generate money for daily operations and capital expenditures, such as building roads and schools.

What Are Government Security Bonds and How Do They Operate? ‘

In India, short-term G-Sec bonds with a maturity of less than one year are known as treasury bills or T-bills. Depending on the issuer, Treasury notes may have maturities ranging from 91 days to 182 days to 365 days.

G-Sec bonds with a one-year or longer maturity are long-term securities.

The Indian state governments offer T-bills, government bonds, and State Development Loans (SDLs).

Online auctions for security (G-Sec)

The government sells T-bills and other government securities. The dates and total quantity of securities to be sold are made public well before the auctions and bond sales. There are two sorts of auctions: price-based and yield-based.

There are two possible ways in which a bondholder might expect to get a return on their investment:

  • The issuer makes coupon interest payments.
  • Upon maturity or sale of the bond, all profits or losses accrue to the bondholder.
  • Interest payments are reinvested, resulting in a profit.

The coupon yield measures the nominal interest rate as a proportion of the coupon’s face value.

Or, it might refer to the yield received by a bondholder as a percentage of the price paid for the bond, which could be larger or lower than its nominal face value. The coupon payment’s current yield is a proportion of this yield.

The bond price is determined by the total present value of all future cash flows. Interest rates utilized in discounting cash flows are called Yield to Maturity (YTM).

New G-Secs are auctioned out based on the previous year’s crop yield.

The government reissues previously issued securities in a price-based auction.

The G-Secs is a very exclusive club.

It’s common for banks, mutual funds, and insurance companies to bid on G-Secs in terms of a new bond coupon or the price of an old bond that is being reissued.

Before 2001, only institutional investors were allowed to bid on government bonds. Auctions were open to other buyers because the market was deregulated. Using noncompetitive bidding, investors may bid up to 5% of the declared government target in G-Sec auctions. Noncompetitive bidders or retail investors who are not part of the bidding process would get INR 50 crore, while the remaining INR 950 crore will be put up for competitive auctions.

“Retail investors” include individuals, firms, organizations, and trusts in the perspective of India’s federal banking regulator, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) (RBI). As a condition of participation, all participating retail investors must hold a current or SGL account with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).

To participate in the non-competitive auction, you must have a Demat account or be a registered investor in the Reserve Bank of India.

G-Secs will get refunds.

Return on investment (ROI) may be calculated using G-yield secs to maturity.

The Yield To Maturity (YTM) is the effective interest rate paid on a bond if it is acquired and kept until its maturity (YTM). The yield on government securities is affected by a wide range of factors, including:

  • Inflation
  • In an economy, the total quantity of money is in circulation.
  • Future interest rate predictions
  • Program for borrowing from the Treasury
  • The monetary policy of the government

The coupon rate, remaining maturity time, and market price determine YTM.

The YTM rate is utilized to calculate the bond’s present value by discounting each cash flow. It’s the discount rate used to convert the present value of future cash flows from a bond to its current market value, which is called YTM. The internal rate of return is a more accurate term for this figure.

A market-based pricing method is used to set fixed interest rates. The G-Sec yield is used to measure the market price, which is determined by supply and demand.

It is possible to redeem zero-coupon bonds such as Treasury bills at face value.

The G-Sec tax

Interest generated on government bonds is taxed according to the bondholder’s tax bracket under the Income Tax Act. Those who make long-term capital gains are taxed differently from those who make short-term capital gains.

The holder’s marginal income tax rate is applied to short-term capital gains on the sale of G-Secs held for less than a year.

When G-Secs are kept for more than a year, they are deemed long-term capital gains. The tax on long-term capital gains may be reduced by factoring indexation, revising the purchase price of an item to account for inflationary changes in its value.

IT produces an inflation index that takes into account the following elements: the price of:

  • Date of acquisition or improvement of the item
  • Transferred during the calendar year
  • Investment/improvement year inflation index
  • a date corresponding to when the item was sold

India’s financial system indexes only long-term capital assets, such as stocks and bonds. Those who possess bonds may choose whether or not to take advantage of indexation, and their taxes will be computed as a result.

If the bondholder utilizes indexation, long-term capital gains will be taxed at the usual rate of 20%. (plus surcharge and cess as applicable).

When a bondholder does not take advantage of the indexation benefit, long-term capital gains are taxed at a 10% rate (plus surcharge and cess as applicable).

Investing in Indian Government Bonds Has Advantages

A low-risk investing option is the Indian government’s bond offering. The Indian government’s full faith and credit ensure that your coupon payments and significant investment will be refunded to you when G-Secs mature.

Protecting your money in a G-Sec account is the best to safeguard cash. If you want to retain your certificate in your hands, the government will provide you with one.

Investors may choose G-Secs with maturities ranging from 91 days to 40 years, depending on their risk and time horizon preferences.

For loans, G-Secs may be used as collateral.

G-Secs may be used as collateral when borrowing money on the repo market. For more loan options visit bridgepayday.com.

Repurchase agreements, or “repos,” are arrangements in which one party undertakes to buy back another party’s securities at a set future date. Repo contracts repay the difference between what was paid in advance for the protection and what the buyer receives upon contract termination.

Settlement of G-Secs Trades is a Piece of Cake. ‘

Investors may buy and sell G-Secs on the secondary market for cash. When it comes to G-Sec transactions, the Delivery versus Payment method is used to settle everything (DvP). In the eyes of many, this is a simple means of resolving debts.

It reduces settlement risk by simultaneously transmitting seller securities and buyer payments.

How to Trade G-Sec Government Bonds

There are five alternative methods to buy and sell G-Sec government bonds.

Bidding for G-Secs on the RBI’s Electronic Auction Platform

The RBI’s e-Kuber system is used for G-Secs auctions when it comes to electronic auctions. Participants in the RBI’s computerized auctions, such as commercial banks, principal dealers, insurance companies, and provident funds, must have current or securities accounts with the RBI to participate.

via the auctions of commercial banks

No worries if you don’t have an e-Kuber account—primary auctions may still be accessed via commercial banks and Primary Members (PMs). Establish a financial institution or primary dealer investing fund to participate in an auction (PD). A Gilt Account is recognized for a reason. You may establish a dematerialized Gilt Account at a scheduled commercial bank or PD.

RBI accounts are used for all PM G-Sec transactions. The Reserve Bank of India pays Gilt account holders who utilize PMs to make G-Sec transactions via a CSGL account.

Invest in G-Secs on the stock market.

The BSE Direct platform allows retail investors to bid on G-Sec. Additionally, the BSE’s new NCB-GSec online bidding platform permits noncompetitive bidding for consumers.

To purchase G-Securities via the National Stock Exchange of India’s noncompetitive bidding service, investors may use any methods listed below.

Trade G-Secs on a Trading Platform.

Online stock trading platforms like HDFC Securities and Zerodha’s mobile apps allow retail investors to acquire G-Secs immediately.

Invest in government securities via a mutual fund.

G-Secs issued by the Indian government may be purchased via Gilt mutual funds. Investors may choose between long-term and short-term Gilt Funds based on how long they want to hold the asset and the nature of the investment.

Gilt Funds for G-Sec one-year trading include the following:

G-Secs without end.

  • Management Company of Liquidity (LMC)
  • The Magnum Gilt Fund at SBI.
  • Investing in HDFC Gilts.

As a whole (G-Secs)

  • Overnight Fund for UTI Colleges and Universities
  • The SBI Magnum Constant Maturity Fund
  • India’s Gilt Fund Investments

Investors in India may own G-Secs in the following ways:

  • Protection from the elements is essential.
  • The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) uses a subsidiary general ledger (SGL) to keep track of the public debt.
  • G-secs are held for investors in SGL-II accounts held by banking institutions with component accounts at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
  • A Demat account is used by both depositories and investors alike. There are G-Secs held in RBI’s SGL-II account to benefit NSDL and CDSL customers.

The Minister visited the Bapu Museum and saw the galleries categorized into different segments. She proposed to develop “circular tourism” in Andhra by assimilating all tourist destinations, temples and museums.

To maintain harmony in the digital age, the museum was renovated with an ultra-modern vibe by the Department of Archeology and Museums. The Minister appreciated department officials for equipping the space with advanced augmented and virtual reality technologies.

The museum was renovated by spending Rs. 12.8 crore and reopened to the public on October 2, 2020.

Ms Roja said there are 1,500 ancient and rare artifacts depicting the 10 lakh-year history. She urged people to visit the museum during summer holidays as it is a place of recreation and also the best place to learn about “our rich history”. Museums at Eluru and Ananatapur would also be developed like the Bapu Museum.
