Lower bond yields are driven by improved perception on the interest rate front. Investors expect a reduction in interest rates in the near term. Whether this actually happens is another matter altogether, as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has not implied this in any manner. However, for the time being, gilt fund investors won’t be complaining.
