The Indian government recently announced several tax proposals aimed at encouraging investment in mutual funds.

The country's finance minister proposed late last month continuing for three years an exemption from dividend taxes on all mutual funds that invest over 50 percent of their holdings in equities. There is also a proposal to cut the capital gains tax rate from 20 to 10 percent. The Indian Parliament is expected to vote on both proposals within six weeks.
