The article highlights Indian government's reluctance to entertain investment in hedge funds. In a seminar, joint secretary for India's department of economic affairs U.K. Sinha said that stock market scams in recent years would make it difficult for the country to let in hedge funds unless at least some country was regulating their behavior. Some hedge funds said they consider India's regulations rather stringent by international standards, so they manage to find loopholes when investing, leading to consternation in India.
