if you are in a hurry american visa (US Visa) If you want, go to another country and get it because in India you may have to wait a long time for the interview. This is because applicants going to America for the first time do not come under the interview process. And those whose visas expired more than four years ago can apply at select US embassies abroad to reduce the waiting time in India.

One of them is Bangkok. Interview waiting time for getting B1/B2 visa in Bangkok is only 14 days. There, the waiting time is 589 days in Kolkata and 638 days in Mumbai. Anil Kalsi, joint secretary of the Travel Agents Federation of India, said Indians who urgently need to go to the US are already going to third countries to apply for US visas because of the long waiting list here.

Waiting period had reached 1000 days

He said that these countries include Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Delhi-based travel agent Kalsi said, ‘I had a client. He got his H1B stamped in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) as he could not get an appointment time in India. In fact, at the end of last year the waiting period for B1/B2 visa had reached 1000 days. After this, America took a big step to reduce the interview waiting time.

US Embassy took a big step

The US Embassy had said that US visa aspirants can now submit applications through ‘Drop Box’. After this more applicants from India were made eligible for exemption in interview. With the number of B1/B2 visa applicants in Mumbai being 638, the interview waiting time has come down significantly. There are 617 B1/B2 visa applicants in Chennai, 609 in Hyderabad, 596 in Delhi and 589 in Kolkata.

More than 1 lakh applications processed in January

The US Mission in India processed over 1 lakh visa applications in January this year. This is more than any month since July 2019. Earlier this was not done. The US Embassy in Delhi tweeted on Saturday that as our team grows, our capacity will grow.

More than 2.50 lakh appointments between January-March 2023

Let us inform that between January and March 2023, America has decided to issue more than 2.50 lakh appointments. Dozens of temporary consular officers from Washington and other embassies will come to India to increase visa processing capacity. In addition, the US mission has decided to release over 2,50,000 additional B1/B2 (Business/Tourism) appointments.

interview | The evergreen theme of multicap investing: Tejas Gutka


Tejas Gutka

  • Interest rate hike coming to an end
  • Got a good return of 12 to 15% in equity

Mumbai: Tata Mutual Fund, a mutual fund of the prestigious industry conglomerate Tata Group, holds a leading position among the old fund houses of the country, providing superior returns through its various investment schemes over the past 3 decades. I have created wealth for millions of investors. That is why today it is trusted by more than 28 lakh investors. Now Tata Mutual Fund has launched a new open-ended equity scheme Tata Multicap Fund, which will remain open for initial investment till January 30, 2023. On issues related to new multicap funds, equity market and economy Tejas Gutka, Fund Manager, Tata Mutual Fund (Tajas Gutka) had a detailed discussion with Navbharat’s commercial editor Vishnu Bhardwaj. Tejas Gutka with an experience of 15 years is considered one of the successful fund managers in the country. Here are the highlights of the discussion:-

  • Why have you chosen the multicap theme in the current volatile environment?

Multicap is a very good Investment Theme. In this fund, we will create a balanced and diversified portfolio by investing in quality stocks of all the three types, Large, Mid and Small Cap. As per the rules of market regulator SEBI, minimum 25% and maximum 50% investment has to be made in a segment. In this way, 75% of the total investment becomes in all the three segments of the multicap. The remaining 25% is invested by looking at market opportunities. The best thing about the multicap category is that investing in all the three segments creates a risk-adjusted portfolio and benefits from all market cycles as different segments move at different times in the market. Huh. In this way, the evergreen theme of multicap investment can be called.

  • Which segments are currently looking better on valuation basis and what would be your investment ratio in Multicap Fund?

The ideal portfolio that we would build from a long term perspective in a multicap fund would have roughly 40 to 45% in largecaps, 30 to 35% in midcaps and 25 to 30% in smallcaps. And when investing, it can be done more or less according to the circumstances of that time. By the way, in today’s situation, we are liking largecaps and smallcaps more because the valuations of largecaps and midcaps are almost equal. That’s why it would be more correct to invest in largecaps.

  • If a retail investor wants to make good returns by investing in multicap, then for what period should he invest?

If you want to get good profit in any equity fund, then investment should be kept for at least 3 years and the longer the term is kept, the more is the possibility of profit. On the same lines, it would be more correct to invest in multicap funds for a period of 3 to 5 years. In 3 years, all the three segments and every cycle of the market get benefited and good wealth is created.

  • The Indian stock market was an outperformer compared to other markets for the last two years, but has been an underperformer since the beginning of 2023. What is the reason for this and how much further decline can come?

As you said, in the last 2-3 years the Indian stock market was a huge outperformer and gave good returns, but due to this India’s valuation premium had increased a lot. In this situation the market falls rapidly. Although the good thing is that there was no sharp decline in the Indian market. The market has turned sideways. The relative valuation of the Indian market will gradually become attractive if it continues to underperform. Then India will not be very expensive for foreign investors (FII). Although there is no possibility of much decline because India’s growth and fundamentals are better than other big countries and with the meaningful steps of the government, good growth is expected for the next 2-3 years as well. But it would be appropriate to expect single digit returns in 6 to 8 months.

  • Record inflation and rising interest rates were major concerns last year, which are now being overcome by falling commodity prices. Do you think interest rates will continue to rise?

No, now there is no possibility of increasing much. The Reserve Bank can increase marginally once or twice. After that interest rates are expected to peak out. Then investment in the equity market will start increasing again. Now commodities and other raw material prices have come down. Due to this, the profit margin of Corporate India will also start increasing again.

  • Investment in FDs is on the rise due to increase in bank FD rates from 5-6% to 7-8%. So would it be right to invest in equity now?

This always happens in the short term, when FD rates go up, investors get attracted. But only 5 to 8% fixed return is available in FD. However, we believe that an investor should always create a balanced portfolio by investing in equity, debt or FDs. But historically, Equity Funds have given good returns of 12 to 15% in the long term and created good wealth. Therefore it would be right to invest in equity to create wealth.

India and America Despite the good relations between the two countries, Indians have to wait a long time to go to America, about which the leaders of both the countries also discussed many times. It was also said from the US side that it would try to reduce the time taken in this process. America’s now foreign Ministry spokesman for ned price Giving information in this regard, Ned Price said that America is taking all possible steps to reduce the time taken for visa interview planning in India.

Foreign Office spokesman Ned Price said at his daily press conference, “The visa process is improving faster than expected and we expect it to reach pre-pandemic levels in the coming times.” He told that the US issued the highest number of student visas in FY 2022 as compared to any year since 2016.

We understand people’s problems: Ned Price

Its embassies and consulates in India have broken all their previous records for the number of student visas issued in a financial year. Price said, “We issued about 1,25,000 student visas. We recognize that some applicants are still facing long wait times in the visa application process. We are making every effort to reduce the time it takes to schedule visa interviews in India and around the world, including for tourist visa applicants, as quickly as possible.”

Spokesman Ned Price said in response to a question that he understands the plight of those who have to wait a long time. He further said, “I can tell you that it is the priority of the minister and the ministry that we do everything possible to reduce that backlog (pending applications) and ultimately reduce the waiting time. We are committed to protecting national security while providing legitimate travel for non-immigrant travelers.”

We recruited twice as many service personnel: Price

Price said the demand for visa services has increased as countries around the world have eased restrictions due to the global pandemic and people want to travel to the US. He said, “We are reducing the time taken for visa processing across the world. We’ve doubled the hiring of US Foreign Service personnel for critical visa work. The visa process has made more progress than expected and we expect it to reach pre-pandemic levels this year.”

Significantly, applications for non-immigrant visas, visitor visas (B1/B2), student visas (F1/F2) and temporary worker visas (H, L, O, P, Q) are being processed by several Asian countries including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, are pending for a long time in the embassies of countries and Pacific islands. Visa application process in India is reported to take more than 1000 days to complete.
