Hello Rajesh,

Today i noticed that there was 93% delivery component in the overall trade of skumars,i guess you were right in saying that investors are piling up the stock.

I have already acquired some 600 shares at an average acquisition rate of 74.Do you suggest to catch on to some more of it.

More than that i will eagerly wait for your blog on tax savings.I need to invest some part in it as my employer has given the last date for us to submit the investement proof.
