Quarterly Newsletter


Dear Readers, Welcome to the June edition of our quarterly e-Newsletter. Almost a year back, the Board of Directors of Mutual Funds Association of Pakistan (MUFAP) decided that MUFAP should publish a Year Book and quarterly Newsletter. The first Year Book for the year ended June 30, 2010 was published last year and the first Newsletter covering the period July 2010 to December 2010 (six months) was put on MUFAP web-site in January 2011. Since then MUFAP is regularly issuing the Newsletter on a quarterly basis. This is the third issue and hopefully this process will continue in future. The objective of these publications is to provide the first hand industry information to the readers, who may be industry members, other financial institutes, researchers, investors, stakeholders and the general public. It is also our aim to keep our readers informed regarding the developments in the industry, capital market and on the regulatory front. From the day one MUFAP has been in forefront to bring transparency and good governance in the industry and we hope to continue this process with greater vigor. During the year ended June 30, 2011, the industry witnessed a growth of 23.95%. However, this growth is mainly in money market funds. There is a need to educate investors (and particularly individual investors and retirement funds managed on behalf of its members who are individuals) to invest a portion of their savings in equity related funds. This is important, as one of the objectives of long term savings is to be a hedge against inflation. On December 24, 2010, Mr. Mohammad Ali took charge as Chairman, Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP). He visited MUFAPs office on January 28, 2011 and was the first Chairman of the SECP to do so. Mr. Asif Jalal Bhatti, Mr. Shahid Nasim Executive Directors and Mr. Rashid Piracha, Director accompanied the Chairman SECP on the visit to MUFAP. The Chairman, SECP had emphasized on the need for MUFAP to prepare a five years plan. This was done by the MUFAP. In MUFAPs five year plan MUFAP had strongly emphasized on the need to increase the savings rate and to invest the savings prudently for better return for investors and for productive purposes for the development of economy and not for budget support. MUFAP in the five year plan has specially emphasized on the need to promote retirement funds, as they promote long term savings and have a lasting effect on boosting the savings rate and contribute to public good. MUFAP also submitted concrete proposals for removal of tax anomalies among retirement schemes and setting up a regulatory regime for retirement schemes. MUFAP also submitted proposals for development of bond market, REITs and improvement in corporate governance, including governance at stock exchanges. A summary of MUFAPs proposal is given in the Newsletter. MUFAP fully agreed with the Chairman, SECP that a five year plan (subject to constant review) was essential for the capital market. With the support of the Government of Pakistan and the commitment of the Commission, this plan will put MUFAP and the mutual fund industry on track for progress. We are happy that the SECP has considered our proposal and an active dialogue is now in place between MUFAP and the SECP. As a result of MUFAPs continuous follow-up and SECPs support, the Government removed some of the tax anomalies in the retirement schemes by amending section 63 of the Income Tax Ordinance (ITO). The Government also agreed to extend the holding period for tax credit under section 62 of the ITO from one year to three years. These measures will contribute towards promoting savings for the longer term and post retirement welfare. Savings for retirement helps towards self sufficiency in the post retirement years when the retired person may not have other sources of income. In addition to savings for retirement, one needs to save for other expenses, like health care, housing, and children education. We believe that both sections 62 and 63 are important and Government should encourage long term savings. We are very happy to note that the SECP has been playing an active role in the development of bond market and working towards introducing regulations which will bring about protection for investors. Public awareness remains a pressing long-term issue and MUFAP has been investing resources in building awareness. Our interview with the Chairman of the Public Awareness Committee for Mutual Funds gives a briefing on the recently launched Money Market Funds campaign. I hope you enjoy reading this issue and find it interesting and insightful. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the participants who have contributed to the success of this Newsletter. I would also request the readers to give their recommendations for the improvement of the newsletter.

MUFAP Proposals incorporated in Finance Act 2011 Following proposals submitted by MUFAP to Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) through the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan were incorporated in the Finance Bill 2011, which was later adopted by the National Assembly. Amendments in the Income Tax Ordinance 2001 through Finance Bill, 2011 Income Tax Ordinance Reference Amendments (ITO) Section 2(11c) new clause Definition of Collective Investment Scheme incorporated for better clarity Section 62 The investment limit in new issues and mutual funds enhanced from 10% to 15% of taxable income with maximum raised from Rs. 300,000 to Rs. 500,000. Life Assurance also included as eligible investment. The holding period of investment extended from one year to three years. Section 63 The maximum limit of Rs. 500,000 for contribution to Voluntary Pension Scheme (VPS) for eligibility to tax credit removed. With this in respect of contribution, level playing field has been achieved between VPS and pension/ gratuity schemes offered by employers. Section 156 B On retirement 50% of accumulated amount withdrawn from VPS shall not be subject to withholding tax. As withdrawal of 50% of accumulated amount from VPS on retirement is exempt from income tax under Clause 23A of Part I of Second Schedule of the ITO, the withholding regime and chargeable clause brought in line. Clause IIA, Part IV of 2nd. Schedule, VPS has been exempted from minimum tax in line with mutual fund, provident fund, pension fund, etc., to remove the anomaly. Rule 6 of Seventh Schedule Dividend to be received by banking companies from its associated asset management company to be taxed at 20%. CVT on debt instruments removed in order to develop the nascent debt market.

Following proposals made by MUFAP were not incorporated in the Finance Bill, 2011. 1. Transfer of accumulated balance from gratuity and superannuation fund to VPS to be allowed tax free. MUFAPs view point presented before FBR was that VPS and employers managed retirement schemes should compete with each other and it should be left to employees to decide which scheme they should join. MUFAP had no objection if transfer of balance is allowed from VPS to employer managed schemes. The transfer of accumulated balance from provident fund scheme (PF) to VPS is allowed under Income Tax Rules. MUFAP proposed that any subsequent withdrawal of balance transferred from PF to VPS should not be subject to tax, as no tax credit is applicable on contribution to PF. MUFAP proposed that all retirement schemes should be taxed under EET regime {(i) exemption from income tax of amount contributed to retirement schemes, (ii) exemption of investment income from income tax and (iii) pension to be taxed}. MUFAP emphasized that EET was its preferred choice, being equitable; if that was not possible, then it is only fair that VPS should also be brought under EEE tax regime, like rest of the employers retirement schemes. Both options were not accepted by FBR. Considering that on retirement, fifty percent of the accumulated balance withdrawn from VPS is not subject to income tax and tax withholding and the remaining amount drawn as monthly pension may be subject fifty per cent rate of tax, if the aggregate income of the individual after reaching the superannuation age is below one million rupees annually, VPS is also partly tax exempt at the third stage. Top Meetings of the Committees MUFAPs Committees held many meetings to finalize important, well planned proposals on behalf of industry. The key findings and recommendations are outlined below: Rules and Regulations Committee On May 5, 2011, SECP released notification of proposed amendments to Non-Banking Finance Companies and Notified Entities Regulations, 2008 in order to solicit public comment on the regulation. The committee reviewed the proposed amendments in detail and suggested changes to regulations relating to Trustee, fee payable to the Commission, minimum size of open-end scheme, maximum holding in open-end scheme and suspension period of redemption. Among other things, MUFAP also addressed other long-standing issues not covered in SRO such as approval of related party transactions, requirement to make minutes of Investment Committee meetings, inclusion of investment plan, charging of Shariah fee, uniformity of Investment permissibility across different structures, requirement of obtaining ranking of CIS, regularization period when CIS is in breach of prescribed investment limits, investment limit for Index Tracker funds, charging of license fee for ETF/Index Tracker funds, requirement to prepare statement of changes in equity, minimum equity requirement for AMC and existing fee structure of commission.

Market Developments in Q4 FY11

Equity Market The KSE-100 index waved a cheerful farewell to the fiscal year 2011 as it climbed 2,300.34 points, or 26%, to 12,300.44. The stock market staged an impressive rebound in the first two quarters, bringing the return of the index to 23.66% for the first six months, while in the latter ones market volatility rose sharply and index posted a subdued gain of 2%. During the last quarter of FY11, index moved in a narrow band of 909 points touching a high of 12,508.42 and slipping to a low of 11,599.28 with thin volumes across the board amid limited foreign and institutional interest. The lackluster activity dominated the market throughout the trading sessions of April, however, finishing the month with 248.90 points up, or 2.1%, to 12,057.54. Rising inflation, widening fiscal deficit, energy and gas shortfall, security concerns, increased power tariffs, circular debt issue and higher global commodity prices kept investors on the sidelines. However, encouraging corporate earnings, rising foreign exchange reserves, current account surplus and recovery in global stocks and commodities drove the modest improvement in the last few trading sessions of the month. Due to the volatile law and order conditions, the market continued to move at a snails pace in May to close marginally up 65 points, or 0.5% at the 12,123.15 level. The market crawled up towards the later part of the month on the back of positive budget related news particularly relaxation in CGT and intactness of deemed duty as well as assurance about no imminent foreign aid withdrawal and sovereign rating revision. The last month of fiscal year 2011 presented a non-descript pattern as the index edged up 372.88 points, or 3.08%, to 12,359.36. Despite low-volume market environment, index managed to record light gains amid cancellation of flood tax surcharge, unchanged corporate taxation on the banking sectors, phased withdrawal of FED on cement, deregulation of oil prices and discovery in exploration sector. The market is in need of fresh catalysts to regain momentum.

SECP allows investment in Futures Contract SECP has taken an in-principle decision to allow equity/equity oriented CISs to invest in futures contracts. However, before proceeding with the investment the concerned AMC shall seek approval of the Commission as mandated by the constitutive documents of the relevant CIS. Top SECP amends the format of Statement in Lieu of Prospectus issued by a private company on its conversion into a public company SECP has amended the Statement in Lieu of Prospectus which is contained in Part III of Second Schedule of the Companies Ordinance, 1984, required to be filed with the registrar by a private company converting into a public company. Previously, Prospectus required to be filed by public unlisted companies for obtaining Commencement of Business Certificate was substituted with new one. Relevant information regarding the company, i.e., Corporate Universal Identification Number, Registered Office and contact details have been added keeping in view the requirements of all the stakeholders. Previous format contained some cumbersome and difficult information. Amended format contains more detailed and simplified information on authorized and paid-up capital of the company, particulars of directors, chief executive, secretary etc, remuneration payable to these persons, number and amount of shares and debentures issued or agreed to be issued, amount of discount, if any, allowed on issue of any shares, details of every agreement entered, preliminary expenses, rate of dividends in previous years etc. Top Standardized Trust Deed for Mutual Funds CDC-MUFAP finalized Standardized Trust Deed for Mutual Funds. The CDC and MUFAP teams had been working together for more than a year towards finalizing a Standardized Trust Deed for Mutual Funds. The finalized draft of the Standardized Trust Deed for Mutual Funds was submitted to the SECP on the 22nd July, 2011. The Standardized Trust Deed for Mutual Funds once approved by the SECP will help in saving a lot of time and money in the approval process for the Trust Deeds for Mutual Funds set up in the future.

A total of 6 T-bill auctions were held by SBP during the quarter in which a total amount of Rs 962.30 billion was raised. No change in the SBP policy rate has led the banks to diversify their investment in all tenors of T-bills. Pakistan Investment Bonds The Government compensated the earlier shortfall in borrowings through PIBs by accepting more than targeted amounts in the last three auctions as it raised a net amount of Rs 80.66 billion through PIB auctions against the target of Rs 80 billion during the quarter.

Top 27-Apr-11 22-Jun-11 25-May-11 Money Market SBP adopted various policy measures aimed at controlling the growth of monetary aggregates in order to achieve monetary and price stability. Open Market Operations (OMOs) remained the major tool for liquidity management. The liquidity constraint forced SBP to increase money injection into the market. SBP injected Rs. 220.85 billion and mopped up Rs. 375 billion during Q4-FY11 through OMOs. Strong export earnings and robust growth in remittances, expansion in foreign exchange reserves, increase in NFA of the banking system, relatively disciplined government borrowings from the central bank, favorable external current account position and stable financial markets allowed SBP to keep the key policy rate unchanged at 14 percent in the last monetary policy review during the fourth quarter of FY11. However, the debt burden combined with inflation has created challenges for private productive activity and needs satisfactory implementation of fiscal reforms. Movement in KIBOR

Mr. Farid Ahmed Khan

What inspired you to lead the Public Awareness Committee? What would you like to accomplish as a committee chair? I really wanted to work with a team to create some difference in whatever way I could and when I shared the view with Chairman MUFAP, he suggested that perhaps the awareness committee is one of the platforms where it can be achieved. Thats how I ended up here. To be honest, I feel that one year is too short a period of time in order to achieve our strategic objective as it requires a sustained collaborative effort of 25 AMCs and bringing everyone together on a single common platform to achieve shared goals takes some time. What we can accomplish and want to accomplish may be in this short period of time: a)To start rebuilding the image of funds which was tarnished during 2008/09. b) Focus on initiatives aimed at enhancing investor education to bring back the investors who seemed to be shying away from the industry. c) Work with regulators, stakeholders and other key market participants to spread the message as wide as possible to promote savings and investments in the market and thereby contributing to the economic progress. The idea is to build mutual cooperation and understanding with the major stakeholders (KSE, CDC, NCCPL, and SECP) for the effective regulation and development of capital market with a clear direction.

Can you put forward your thoughts on how the mutual fund industry can further create awareness for its products and also build the trust and respect of the general public? Trust and respect will only come with time and performance. If you keep performing and delivering quality on time, people will come to respect you. Its true that our industry has gone through some tough times but so has been the stock market. Track record of consistency and performance can earn the trust. The first and foremost thing to create awareness is to develop investor education programs for both urban and rural areas. Through comprehensive public awareness program like face-to-face interactions, road shows, public forums and seminars, we can educate our investors about what our products are, how we can help them and eventually earn their trust. The next step to create awareness of our different products, risk profile, merits and demerits of each fund category is to give participants an opportunity to speak directly to experts. Do you think one day we can be at a place where we can be as popular as banks? When we look at banks in Pakistan, they have a rich history of 60-65 years. A lot of them are like households names with a massive distribution network while mutual fund industry is only a few years old. Most people are unaware of mutual funds, money market fund is perhaps the simplest of our product but people dont even know about it. It requires relentless work and incessant efforts at creating awareness to hammer the message down that mutual funds are an important part of their saving portfolio like national saving schemes and bank accounts and it should rank somewhere near that spectrum. It is a long journey but as long as we keep moving in that direction, we will eventually achieve our goal. Do banking groups that have asset management affiliates help in distributing funds or they see mutual funds in competition with their own products? It varies from company to company. Some get a lot of support, some get some support, some do not get any support, and it depends on where the priority line lies for the AMC business and for the bank. With big banks we do face this problem that their bottom-lines are huge and its very difficult for us to make an impact or gain their attention. Therefore, we have to regain our shareholders as charity begins at home. If the shareholders understand, they will put it on the right priority lane. Its absolutely correct that mutual funds are in direct competition with some of their products but banks do have other products as well. Some banks have 5 different credit cards, each one of them is competing with other but at the same time each has one different feature which differentiates. So we are like that. Similarly, people keep their money in long-term deposits but at the same time they do keep their money in saving accounts also where they withdraw at will, may be some part of it can come into our money market and income funds. There will be some cannibalization but at the end of the day the money will remain in the group/system. We have to send this message across that there is value addition for banks as people are becoming more and more aware of these products and if one bank does not offer it the customer will go to some other bank. The best way is to keep customers informed, offer them choices so that at the end of the day its their choice which product they want to choose. Our job is to ensure that whatever the product they choose, it remains in the group.

Money market funds now have the largest weight in fund categories surpassing both equity and Income funds AUMs, Do you think that Money Market Fund Category can continue to grow keeping in mind the unchanged key policy rate in last three Monetary Policy reviews? Money market funds are now the preferred vehicle for risk averse investors and their growth indicates the psyche of our customers. Its just the reflection of how the industry and market has fared over the last two years. Money Market category will continue to grow for as long as investors have a low risk appetite. The moment investor risk perception changes, for instance, if the stock market starts running again and after 6 months people realize that stock market is up 25%, we will see a sharp growth in stock funds as well. Money market category probably is not heavily dependent on how the interest rate environment moves; it is more aligned with investor risk perception and performance of other asset classes. Investing is about making money and meeting your financial goals. What are the key differences between investing in bank deposits and Money market funds? What advice would you give to the general public at large to increase odds of achieving their investments goals? People should consider our money market funds as an alternative to bank deposits. They are not a replacement of bank deposits. One cannot get his salary credited to a money market account, the person needs a bank account for it. It is certainly an option as a saving alternative. Instead of leaving money in a saving account or current account, money market fund is a better product which offers superior returns with a lot of flexibility. This is how we will pitch it Use your bank account for transactions to get credits & debits but for your savings, consider money market fund. Can you please throw some light on goals and objectives of recently launched Money Market awareness-building Campaign? What is your campaign slogan? Is the campaign clearly focused on the target audience? The objectives of this campaign were to educate investors about AMCs and their funds. We wanted to introduce money market funds as an investment option next to the bank deposits and highlight the fact that this is a vibrant industry that can work together for a common objective. It is also an effort towards the investor education and outreach where we tried to explain the thought process behind these funds and what benefits they can offer to investors. We wanted to differentiate it very clearly that funds are not just about stock market or stocks; there are different categories available. It was a short campaign for about a month. We tried to make the slogan as simple as possible People who think smart, invest smart. We didnt incorporate any financial jargon because one doesnt need to be a financial wizard to understand this product. All you need to do is perhaps act; you dont have to think a lot about it. Its only your laziness which can prevent you from not taking advantage of it. My regret is that perhaps it was targeted mostly towards urban population. Given the budget constraints and the fact that it was the first attempt we wanted to keep it focused otherwise we would have stretched ourselves in a major way. The objective was to target businessmen, professionals, housewives and retired personnel. The way the response we got, the leads that started to come through, the number of hits received on website, it highlights that the message did go across.

What were the key challenges faced by the committee in launching the awareness campaign? Initially, the biggest challenge was to define this campaign because this effort has been going for a long time. It was not delivered because whenever you have 20 people sitting at a table, there are 20 ideas. The key challenge was to cut it down to the bare minimum level where everyone agrees. It was the defining moment when we decided this is what we have to do and we got everyone around the table agreed to it. Once that was done, coordination was the key challenge at the execution stage but we had a very good team of volunteers who did fantastically well. Once the goal was clear that what we have to achieve, things started falling into place. Other challenges were regulatory approvals. How are you going to measure the success of the campaign? The results can be measured along several factors, the leads; the number of hits on website and fans on our face book page. We cannot measure the impact in short-term as the hits tend to multiply over time. SECP and KSE liked the idea that industry is coming together and giving a message from a common platform. The credibility goes many folds when 12 companies are appearing together to achieve common objectives in newspaper. Time will tell how successful it was. What would be your strategy or advice that you would convey to the person who will take the lead of this committee? I would recommend that the strategy for next 3 years is to create awareness from grass root level and keep things simple because when we have to explain something to lay men, sometimes we take certain things for granted that they already know that its a money market fund and it does not invest in stocks. So we should keep things really simple and at basic level where we just have to hold their hands and guide them. Once we agree to that we just need to convey the features and benefits of mutual funds, what they can do for you, how you can invest, how you can reach us. Once your investor interaction starts, once he steps inside your domain than after 1 or 2 years when he has a good experience with simple products, he will listen to you and will look at other investment options or plans as well. What future plans do you have to expand outreach efforts? We want to put some publications in magazines and newspapers about mutual funds and explain how mutual funds complement banks and other saving products. Investor road shows seminar is next thing on our agenda. We are planning to initiate our second phase of campaign after ramazan. Our plan is to use this campaign and its momentum to appear on several print and electronic media to further give the message out about our industry achievement. We are planning to make a resource booklet representing fundamentals of investing in mutual funds on MUFAPs and Money Market funds website. Top

The Alternative
By Muhammad Sohail Director, KSE and CEO Topline Securities Mounting fiscal deficit with no major external inflows has forced the government to take steps that will defer real investment and industrialisation in the country. The government has been promoting investment in state-backed securities like treasury bills, Pakistan Investment Bonds and different products of National Saving Schemes (NSS). NSS alone has raised Rs20 billion a month for the government for the last three years. With some products offering returns higher than the prevailing interest rates and inflation, a wise investor will not bother working hard to make more returns in the economy hit by stagflation. Lower tax on government securities The Finance Bill, 2011 allows a taxpayer, other than a company, to bring profit earned on government securities in Final Tax Regime. After this amendment, the individual can avoid filing returns under the section 115(4) of Income Tax Ordinance. As a double benefit, the investor of government securities can pay less tax (only 10%) and, that too, without any hassle of filing tax returns. This shows the governments desperation to raise funds at the expense of actual investment in different sectors that can generate employment and contribute to the overall economic development of the country. This has negative repercussions on the already dying stock market where the overall volume has collapsed to a 9-year low in FY11. After the tax relaxation, investors have been provided with a window of opportunity to make easy money by shifting their funds from stocks to government papers. Good returns with no risk In the last 20 years, average annual return on benchmark 6-month treasury bills was 10 percent. After the deduction of 10 percent withholding tax, the net return turns out to be 9%. Most of the high net worth individuals fall in 20% tax bracket. For them the after-tax return was 8 percent a year. In comparison, the stock market posted an average yearly return of 20% (including 5 percent dividends) in the last 20 years. With no tax on capital gains and a 10 percent levy on dividends, the actual after-tax return comes to 19 percent after commission and other charges. Thus, on after-tax basis the return on government papers, at 1,100 basis points or 11%, is less than the equity earnings. The situation is no more the same now. The government has announced a 10 percent full and final tax on government papers in the Federal Budget 2011/12. And now the capital gains tax has been brought under the tax ambit with no facility of it being considered as full and final for individuals. As a result, if someone buys 6-month benchmark T-Bill, his after-tax return will be 12.35 percent compared to 17.5% in stocks (after the deduction of 10 percent tax and 0.5% other charges). This estimate is based on the 20year average annual gain of 20 percent. This 5 percent additional return on equity is far less than the historical premium of 11% that an investor used to get for taking additional risks.

Furthermore, the government has been kind enough to fixed-income investors by placing them under the presumptive tax regime where the 10percent levy will be full and final. On the other hand, a stock investor needs to keep all the records and hire a tax consultant to file yearly return of investment in the stock market. Behbood Scheme: the best bet Another reason to invest in government securities is the attractive yield being offered by saving schemes. NSS has attracted around Rs700 billion in the last 3 years. On an average, Rs20 billion net investments are being made in these products on a monthly basis. Behbood certificates offer the highest rate of 15.4 percent and are exempt from taxes. This product is designed for widows and senior citizens aged 60 years and above. Interestingly, close to Rs200 billion has been invested in this product alone in the last 3 years. With NSS still not being computerised, many investors have touched the maximum limit of Rs3 million for an individual in sheer violation of the rules. And the mounting inflows in this scheme justify the decision of a smart investor, who deposits all of his funds in the product where the after-tax return is close to the stock market earnings, with no tax and botheration to file returns. In FY11, the so-called benchmark KSE-100 Index rose 20 percent excluding illiquid Nestle Pakistan. After tax and other costs, the return is close to 17.5 percent compared to risk-free, tax-free 15.4 percent profit generated through Behbood. Shift the focus please The government must focus on bridging the fiscal deficit through innovative methods rather than relying on costly debt that obviously has to be repaid. By imposing a 25 percent tax on gas bills, the government can raise Rs100 billion. Economic theory suggests taxing the product in demand. Gas in Pakistan is being sold in the range of $1-$6 per Million British Thermal Unit (MMBTU) compared to the equivalent cost of oil which is $15 per MMBTU. Gas is preferred by everyone because it's cheaper than oil. Housewives in Karachi enjoy uninterrupted gas supply at nominal charges at a time when the industry is desperate for gas at a higher cost. Many people prefer to use gas generators at their home amidst power outages. This tax on gas or similar kind of price rationalisation will help curtail the rising gas demand. Similarly, if the government charges one rupee a day from mobile users, they can raise Rs40 billion a year to help finance the deficit in the short run. The government can also rely on the stock market to raise funds rather than depending totally on interest bearing debt. The government has raised more than Rs100 billion through the stock market in the past. Thus, a vibrant capital market can help generate funds that the government is now raising at a high cost. Top

government tax revenues. These costs can be significantly brought down. This will also reduce the interest rate risk for the government and help in bringing the interest rates down in the country which will promote economic growth. MUFAP analysis indicates that there is very substantial mis-pricing in Bahbood scheme and Special Savings Certificates. Behbood presently offers a rate of 15.4% p.a.with zero percent tax on it. Over 90% of Pakistani retirees do not have the savings to invest in the Behbood Scheme. They can hardly meet their day to day expenses. The investors who invest in the Behbood Scheme are rich and it is not right that they be provided subsidy by the government. It is also widely believed that individuals open multiple Behbood Deposit Accounts at different NSS Centers. There is a need to investigate this fraudulent availing of Behbood subsidy. It is not justified to provide subsidy to the very rich through payment of very high interest rates and also making the rate of return paid (15.4 % per annum) on the Behbood deposits tax free. MUFAP has compared the NSS rates in Pakistan with similar Small Savers Scheme in India. In India the average bank deposit rate is about 7.5% p.a. and the average return on Savings Schemes is about 8% p.a. In Pakistan the average bank deposit rate is around 6% p.a. and the average return on NSS is about 14% p.a. (calculated based on the prevailing rates of returns). Thus, the Pakistani government is paying too high a rate on savings schemes, despite the fact that the credit rating of the Government is much higher than banks. The wide spread of over 8% between NSS rates and bank deposits has a negative impact for the banking system. State Bank of Pakistan has stated in its Financial Stability Review 2009-10: more net flow towards NSS tend to shift medium term fund or fixed deposits away from the banking system that limits the banks ability to invest in the medium term projects. The Penalty structure on NSS is also very low and inconsistent. The penalty on 10- Behbood Savings Certificate averages only 0.625% in the first 4 years and 0% in the last four years. On the 3-year Special Savings Certificate there is almost no penalty if a saver redeems after completion of 6-months period. Thus in reality this is a 6-month instrument providing the return of a 3-year instrument. Low penalties on withdrawal from NSS also exposes the Government to high interest rate risk as investors switch at any time the interest rates rise. The Effective Penalty rates on exit for saving schemes in Pakistan are much lower versus India. For all schemes excluding Behbood Savings certificate there is a flat 10% full and final tax rate on income irrespective of the income level of the saver. In India, by contrast, the tax rate is 10% on Income level of upto INR 500,000, which rises to 20% for income levels between INR 500,001 and INR 800,000, and 30% for income levels above INR 800,000. Behbood Savings Certificates are completely tax exempt in Pakistan whereas in India for Senior Citizens Savings Scheme the tax rate rises with the income levels of the savers and reaches 30% for savers with income levels above INR 800,000. Very high rates on NSS have a strong negative affect on the Private Sector and on the economy. With NSS offering returns of 12%-15% per annum, the Private Sector is forced to borrow at an even higher rate. The very high rates on NSS are slowing down private sector borrowings as the high interest rates become a barrier for business and industrial investment and expansion, thus slowing down economic growth rate of the country.

Implications of National Savings Schemes on the Economy & the Financial Sector
By Mutual Funds Association of Pakistan (MUFAP) National Savings Scheme (NSS) plays an important role in mobilization of savings for meeting the Governments financing needs. However, pricing and tax anomalies in NSS need to be addressed. Addressing these anomalies can save the Government of Pakistan up to Rs 100 billion per annum through reduction in debt servicing costs and increase in taxes and penalties on early withdrawal from NSS. Presently government debt servicing at around Rs 800 billion equals about 50% of the entire

Recommendations for the Government of Pakistan The NSS should be targeted towards small savers and as in India institutions should not be allowed to invest their company cash or employees funds in NSS

Know Your Client (KYC) requirements should be made applicable to NSS as well as they are applicable to bank and mutual funds. This will help reduce money laundering and improve transparency and documentation of the economy. Even if the Government gradually reduces NSS rates and raises penalties, it will still be able to attract the target amounts as banks / mutual funds returns are substantially lower than NSS rates.

As in India, NSS rate of return should be linked to bank deposit rates of the same maturity, and not to sovereign bond yields. Penalties on NSS for premature redemptions should be raised substantially to reduce interest rate risk of the Government Higher tax rates slabs should be applicable on all NSS and bank deposits based on the income levels and tax bracket rates of the investors. In India, the tax slab on NSS and banks rise to 30% versus 10% in Pakistan. Rate of Return on Behbood Saving Certificates and Defence Saving Certificates, both having a 10-year maturity, should be in line with 10-year bank deposit rate.

The above measures will help the government save about Rs 100 billion per annum on account of reduced debt servicing costs and higher taxes and penalties receipts. This will also revitalize the private sector resulting in improving tax collection and exports, and reducing unemployment rate in the country. Top
