  1. I perfectly agree that how the rating agencies, like Infomerics, could give such AA rating despite the company incurring losses in the past.
    SEBI has rightly embarked upon a plan, now, to check and put in place a system of regulating the rating agencies which have mushroomed like any thing.

  2. Thanks for the informative article.

    I also agree with you, why the issue has such high rating when it is incurring losses.

    Can you please help me with name of existing issuers with high ratings ?
