Japan's prime minister Yoshihiko Noda dissolved the lower house of parliament and has called for elections (December 16th).
Later in the week attention will shift to the Winter Session of Parliament which begins on November 22. Amendments to General Anti-Avoidance Rules (GAAR) have been finalized, Finance Minister P Chidambaram said. The proposal to set up the National Investment Board (NIB) for expediting clearance to large projects will soon come up for approval before the Cabinet, reports state.
Meanwhile, the Inter-Ministerial Group (IMG) is likely to meet today to decide the fate of 14 more mines alloted to public sector firms.
