An upfront discount of 3% would be offered to all category of investors, the fund house said. "Approvals are in place. It is likely to open for retail subscription on November 15," said a Finance Ministry official.

The ETF will help government meet its ambitious Rs 72,500 crore disinvestment target for the current fiscal. The state-owned companies or PSUs that are part of the new ETF are ONGC, IOC, SBI, BPCL, Coal India and Nalco.

A walk in the outdoors should cheer you up and put things in the right perspective in your mind. You will get a chance to push things through that are close to your heart. Your preoccupation with your own problems affects your personal relationship. Perhaps you should share your problems to ease the burden.
