What is the utility of Rent Control Act in today’s time when every thing is available in open market.?

Rent Control act was probabely brought into force long back when people did not have enough to reside. Why should a tenant have a legal protection as Rent Control Act in current times when inflations are so high and there is no law to protect the elderly whose only source of income is rent. Even today tenants are using rented properties at less than one hundreth of the current prevailing rent and are protected by law??

Where do I get advice about investments in mutual funds, etc?

Can you please suggest where I can get advice about investments (in India)? I am new in this area and have very little knowledge about mutual funds, risks etc.
Also it would be very useful if someone can give a bit detailed answer to my specific queries. Are there any such advisors attached to websites?

Isn’t it time for LIC to outsource it front office opertions to some pvt companies?

The work culture of LIC’s public dealing staff is still old fashioned. They refuse to realise that times have changed. I believe it is time LIC should engage some reputed pvt players to manage its day-to-day operations to compete with the pvt insurance entities. The present staff manning the sections should be given the option of VRS or change their attitude.
Any comments?
