General Affairs 

Uri attack: We don't give terrorists a befitting reply, we must, says martyr's son

  • Doleful wails of grief, confusion and anger echo across the dingy room that has been lit up by camera lights at Havildar Ashok Kumar Singh's home.
    Tears cover wrinkled face as a cacophony of sorrowful chants fill the air at Raktu Tola village in Bihar's Bhojpur district. "Babbua," sobs the mother for her fallen son.
    At a corner of the room, her widowed daughter-in-law mourns inconsolably, her arm attached to an intravenous drip as all the energy has drained from her body.
    But Havildar Singh's teenage son, Vishal Singh, controlled his sobs to pledge to follow his father's footsteps as he waited for his body to arrive. "I will join the army," he said.
    As Vishal struggled to hold backs his tears, he expressed his frustration at the system.
    "We don't give them (terrorists) a befitting reply. We must," the young boy lamented.
    Raktu Tola stands out as a village of soldiers in Bihar's Bhojpur district. Out of its 100 houses, at least 25 have one or more family members serving in the Indian army.
    The loss the family has suffered has not deterred its male members from joining the forces. Havildar Singh's brother Kamta Singh died in action as part of the Bihar Regiment in 1986 in Rajasthan.
    The Uri martyr's elder son, Vikas Singh, and his two nephews are in the army. His mother, Sangeeta Singh, was resentful of New Delhi's handling of terror.

India slams Pakistan at UN rights council after Uri attack, rakes up human rights violations in Balochistan

  • In a blunt message, India asked Pakistan on Monday to stop supporting terrorism and vacate illegal occupation of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir as it highlighted human rights violations in Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh and persecution of minorities including Hindus.
    "We, once again, ask Pakistan to stop inciting and supporting violence and terrorism in any part of India and refrain from meddling in our internal affairs in any manner. We call upon the Council to urge Pakistan to fulfill its obligation to vacate illegal occupation of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir," India said in its right to reply at the 33rd Session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) here.
    It said Pakistan continues to test the patience as well as wisdom of the Council with its unceasing false-narrative backed by fabricated facts and figures about Jammu and Kashmir.
    "Pakistan has had territorial ambitions over Kashmir since 1947 that has found concrete expression in the aggression it embarked on in 1947, 1965 and 1999. As on date, Pakistan is in illegal and forcible occupation of 78,000 sq ms (approx) of Indian Territory in Jammu and Kashmir," it said.
    The fundamental reason for disturbances in Kashmir is cross-border terrorism promoted by Pakistan, it added.
    Raising human rights violations in Pakistan, India said, "the people of Balochistan, amongst other provinces, have been waging for decades a bitter and brave struggle against their daily abuse and torture."
    "Religious and sectarian minorities such as Hindus, Christians, Shias, Ahmaddiyas, Ismailis and others continue to face discrimination, persecution and targeted attacks in Pakistan. Places of worship belonging to minorities have been destroyed and vandalized. Blasphemy laws remain in force and are disproportionately used against religious minorities."
    Noting that various international organizations have documented how enforced disappearances continue with impunity, particularly in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh where members of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement are routinely abducted and killed, India said selective but extremely opaque and high-handed use of force by Pakistani authorities has affected civilian populations on a large scale.
    Underlining that more than one million people remain displaced as a result of the current and past armed conflicts in the northwest of Pakistan, India said, "Pakistan will be well-advised to focus its energies on setting its own house in order and acting against the perpetrators of terrorist attacks on its neighbours instead of ritually raking up alleged human rights violations elsewhere."
    Earlier, making a statement at the session here, India called upon the Council to urge Pakistan to put an end to cross-border infiltration; dismantle the terrorism infrastructure; and stop acting as an epicentre of terrorism.
    India said it firmly believes that a policy of "zero tolerance" against terrorism is as much an international obligation as it is a commitment to its own people.
    "It is time that moral and material support provided by Pakistan to the perpetrators of this continuing heinous violence on the Indian soil should attract this Council's attention," India said.
    Asserting that the acts of terrorism are the most egregious violations of human rights as they rob their victims of the most fundamental of human rights - the right to life, India said this should be clear to any impartial observer of the issue.
    "India has been a long-suffering victim of terrorism emanating from our neighbourhood. The fundamental reason for disturbances in Kashmir is cross-border terrorism promoted by Pakistan which is so ruthless that it does not shy away from using civilians and even children by putting them in harm's way, at the forefront of violent mobs instigated and supported by their handlers from across the border," it added.
    The fact that known terrorists like Hafiz Saeed and Syed Salahuddin have been able to hold huge rallies in Pakistan's main cities is a reflection of the state of affairs and can mean only one thing: active support for such personalities and the designated organisations they lead in blatant disregard of rule of law is the new normal in Pakistan, it said.
    Rather than internationalising issues with India, Pakistan should cleanse itself of its terrorists.
    The time has come, when the international community needs to address the plethora of human rights concerns in Pakistan because its impact has moved beyond the county's domestic problem and has begun to affect the region and the world at large, the statement said.

FTII has an illustrious past and a vibrant present, says chairman Gajendra Chauhan

  • Gajendra Chauhan has written to media about the recent open day organised by FTII on September 17 and 18.
    Here's what he has to say:
    "I am in deep gratitude of all Punekars for making the open days at FTII on September 17 and 18, 2016, a resounding success. The enthusiasm witnessed in the campus is unprecedented. From school children to octogenarians, from college students - from as far as Kolhapur, Baramati, and Thane - to housewives, visitors overwhelmed me by their presence.
    FTII, India's best film and television school has an illustrious past and a vibrant present but this legacy was somehow inaccessible to the very Punekars whose love, support and encouragement allowed this premier Institution to reach the heights it has. The open days has now organically connected the people with the Institute.
    I fully agree with the Director of the Institute when he says that the open days were held in a spirit of gratitude to this wonderful city of Pune to which FTII belongs. All this is captured in the motto....FTII for Pune. Pune for FTII.
    This was the first Open Days of its kind in the history of FTII but just two days in 56 years is not enough. Punekars and the people of Maharashtra must surely get more opportunities to visit the campus, explore the legacy and absorb the creativity that blooms in FTII. There will be more open days in future where FTII will throw open its gates for not just the general public but also to the institutions of the city.

    Capt Amarinder on Uri attack: India must explore all retaliatory options short of war

    • Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Captain Amarinder Singh suggested a strong two pronged retaliatory strategy against Pakistan and the extremist separatist groups in Kashmir for ensuring permanent peace and prevention of any such future strikes by the terrorists today.
      "All retaliatory options short of war must be explored and executed," he told reporters at an informal interaction. He said, it was the issue of maintaining the morale of the army as 20 soldiers had died in the attack while about 70 others are injured.
      "This is absolutely unacceptable," he said, while adding, India should explore the options of pre-emptive strikes as carried out by Israel.
      Asked about Pakistan being a nuclear state and the Defence Minister of that country warning retaliatory nuclear strikes, the former chief minister said, "So are we and we have more nuclear arsenal, capacity and capability."
      "Just because somebody was trying to threaten you, out of own fear and frustration, does not mean you must not retaliate and reciprocate in the same measure," he said.
      Capt Amarinder attributed the weak and soft policy adopted by the government towards the Kashmiri separatists for the rise of such incidents. "Till you don't break the back of the militancy in Kashmir and those who are aiding and guiding it, they will not come to the negotiating table", he said, while calling for ending the appeasement policy.
      "Don't talk to anybody till you don't break the back of the militancy there", he advised the government of India, adding, that the goodwill missions do not serve any purpose under these circumstances and these goodwill gestures are only taken to be as weakness.
      The former chief minister also sought an inquiry into the lapses that led to the attack and loss of so many precious lives in Uri.
      He said, the commanding officer and the brigade commandant responsible must be taken to task as it was a serious lapse on their part.

    PM Modi a selfie-machine running a fair and lovely scheme for black money: Rahul Gandhi

    • Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi mounted a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the NDA government on Monday. He said that the prime minister only believed in taking selfie with world leaders.
      Speaking during a road show at Urai in UP's Jalaun district, Rahul said, "He is a kind of PM, who takes selfie with the world leaders, but he has never taken a selfie with a farmer or a labourer. He has become a selfie machine."
      The Congress leader also said that PM Modi only made promises, which were never fulfilled. Rahul Gandhi raised the issue of black money once again during his ongoing Kisan Yatra in UP.
      Taking a swipe at the black money declaration scheme of the government, he said, "If you have thousands of crores of rupees and you wish to make them white, then go to (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley. Your black money will be turned into white. This is the fair and lovely scheme, that Modi government has launched."
      The Congress vice president accused the Modi government of being anti-poor, which catered to the needs of the rich and big industrialists only.
      "The Modi government has waived off loans of big industrialists, who defaulted lakhs of crores of rupees in the past two-and-a-half year. But, a farmer's loan of a few thousands can't be waived off even if that farmer dies under the burden of loan," Rahul Gandhi said.
      "If Congress is voted to power in UP, we will write off farmers' loan in ten minutes. Electricity bills of the farmers will also be waived off," he promised during his road show.

    Business Affairs 

    India to clock 8% growth over next few years: S&P

    • Backed by broadening of domestic consumption base, S&P Global Ratings on Monday projected India to clock a "steroid-free" growth of 8 per cent over the next few years.
      In its 'APAC Economic Snapshots--September 2016' report, S&P said India's structural reform agenda has maintained strong momentum and should propel growth higher.
      "For India, we are still forecasting GDP growth at about 8 per cent over the next few years. Moreover, this is relatively high quality, "steroid-free" growth backed by a broadening consumption base," S&P said.
      Country's structural reform agenda has maintained strong momentum, most recently with the GST passage, and should propel growth higher, it added.
      "Inflation remains a risk, given the large weights on food, fuel, and other volatile items in the Reserve Bank of India's target basket," S&P said.
      The latest gross domestic production (GDP) figures showed that India's growth slowed to 7.1 per cent in the April-June quarter, from 7.9 per cent in January-March period.
      Reserve Bank has also said the near-term growth outlook for India seems brighter than last fiscal and the economy is likely to expand at 7.6 per cent in 2016-17.

    Five things to know about Flipkart's Big Billion Day sale 2016

    • The clash of the ecommerce titans in October is set to be a win-win situation for the consumers. Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal are the prominent players in the e-commerce market. 
      The discount sales are the most anticipated events in the online marketplace, with people spending on household, electronics and other products, creating huge business opportunities for online and offline retailers during the festive season. 
      We take a look at how Flipkart aims to use its 'Big Billion Day sale' to fight for the leadership position in the Indian e-commerce market.
      Fashion segment 
      Fashion will be the key segment for Flipkart, through which the e-tailer expects to counter the effect of huge investment announced by Amazon. Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos committed $3 billion in June 2016 for its Indian operations. Market leader Myntra, Flipkart's fashion arm, in August 2016 acquired online fashion place Jabong from Snapdeal this year. Now, Myntra and Jabong are estimated to earn Rs 400-500 crore in revenue per month.
      Buy-Now-Pay-Later scheme
      Flipkart is expected to unveil the scheme in the October Big Billion Day (BBD) sale and is said to be in talks with lenders to arrange pre-approved loans for consumers. The move will give Flipkart a big edge over its competitors Amazon and Snapdeal. It will be interesting to see how much interest the buyers have to pay on loans if any. Whether Flipkart opts to adjust the interest payment with the final product price or bears the interest charges itself will also decide impact of the move on the company's revenue figures and popularity of the scheme.
      Staggered BBD sale
      The 'Big Billion Day' sale is likely to be organised in installments in October. The move will ensure better and timely service to its consumers. In 2014, the sale also saw mismanagement of large number of orders and hence confusion among buyers. The e tailer, it seems, wants smooth operations of sale this time with its staggered BBD sale.

      Raising stock of products
      Flipkart is putting in largescale efforts to raise its stock of products ahead of the sale. The BBD sale will start after Shradh, a 16 lunar day period in Hindu calender when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors. Buying clothes, equipments and other products is forbidden during this period. The Shradh ends on October 1. Hence, retailers are likely to see a jump in demand of household  products, luxury items and electronic appliances among others.

      Re 1  sale
      The firm is likely to bring back its Re 1 offer, launched during the first big-billion day sale. Under the special offer, expensive products and accessories are sold in a flash sale at Re 1 for limited number of hours during a day. 

    Telcos deposit Rs 14,653 crore for spectrum auction

    • Leading telecom operators have deposited Rs 14,653 crore as earnest money for the country's largest ever spectrum auction from October 1, with Reliance Jio alone submitting Rs 6,500 crore.
      As per the information released by the Department of Telecom on Monday, with Rs 6,500 crore, the Mukesh Ambani-led firm is eligible for placing bids in any of the 22 telecom circles in the country and in any spectrum band.
      Vodafone India has submitted EMD of Rs 2,740 crore, Idea Cellular Rs 2,000 crore and Bharti Airtel Rs 1,980 crore.
      These companies too are eligible for bidding in any circle.
      Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) is indicative of a company's strategy to bid in specific circles and spectrum bands. It gives them eligibility points with regard to those circles.
      Reliance Jio, as per the information, is only company which has potential to buy spectrum in premium 700 Mhz at floor price in most of the circles as a pan-India bidder for 700 Mhz spectrum needs to have EMD of Rs 5,610 crore.
      This is the first time that government will auction the 700 Mhz band, considered to be the most premium as the estimated cost of providing service through it is about one-third of 3G under the 2100 Mhz band.
      A firm opting to buy spectrum in 700 Mhz band will need to shell out a minimum of Rs 57,425 crore. Total spectrum worth Rs 4,01,975 crore in 700 Mhz band is being put up for auction.
      Tata Teleservices has submitted EMD of Rs 1,000 crore, Reliance Communications Rs 313 crore and Aircel Rs 120 crore.
      Mobile frequencies in all bands-700 Mhz, 800 Mhz, 900 Mhz, 1800 Mhz, 2100 Mhz and 2300 Mhz-will be put on the block in the upcoming auction. All the radiowaves being put up for auction can be used for providing high-speed 4G services.
      The Finance Ministry in the Budget pegged the revenue target at Rs 98,995 crore from the telecom space, which includes Rs 64,000 crore from the auction of about 2,354.55 Mhz of spectrum and the rest from various levies and services this financial year.
      As per DoT, Tata Teleservices can bid for spectrum in all bands in Mumbai and Maharashtra circles, and 800 Mhz band (known as CDMA service band) across all circles except Assam and North East (NE), and 900 Mhz in all circles barring Assam, NE and Delhi. It can bid for 3G spectrum in Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, MP, Maharashtra, Mumbai, Punjab, Rajasthan and UP (West). It is not eligible to bid for premium 700 Mhz band spectrum except in Mumbai and Maharashtra.
      Similarly, there are host of restriction on bidding eligibility of Aircel. It cannot bid for spectrum in premium 700 Mhz, 800 Mhz and 2500 Mhz in any of the circle. The company has been found to be ineligible for bidding in 13 out of 22 circles for 3G spectrum which include Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh (East), Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka etc.
      It can only bid for spectrum in 900 and 1800 Mhz band across all circles.
      Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications is eligible to bid for spectrum across country except North East and Assam. 

    Moody's says Indian banks moving past worst of bad loans

    • The banking sector is moving past the worst of its asset quality down cycle, Moody's Investors Service said on Monday, although it warned that state-run banks' capital levels remain a key weakness.
      Gross bad loans as a percentage of total loans of Indian banks have nearly doubled to 8.7 percent as of June, from 4.6 percent in March last year, according to data from the nation's central bank. Including rolled-over or restructured loans, 12 percent of all bank loans were stressed as of end-June.
      Banks' additions to bad loans surged this year after an asset quality review ordered by regulator the Reserve Bank of India, which wants the commercial lenders to clean up their balance sheets by March 2017.
      Moody's said it had a "stable" outlook for the banking sector over the next 12 to 18 months.
      "While the stock of impaired loans may still increase during the horizon of this outlook, the pace of new impaired loan formation should be lower than what it has been over the last few years," the rating agency said in a report.
      For the 11 Indian state-run banks the agency rates, it estimates a capital requirement of Rs 1.2 trillion ($18 billion) by March 2019 to meet the global Basel III banking rules, Alka Anbarasu, a senior analyst, said at a press conference, reiterating earlier forecasts.
      The government has estimated a total capital requirement of Rs 1.8 trillion for all 22 state-run banks. It has pledged to inject over four years to March 2019 a total of Rs 700 billion, which many including Moody's believe will not be enough.
      "A potential way to bridge this capital shortfall would be to slow loan growth to the low single digits over the next three years," Moody's said in the report.

    NPAs to dip on high industrial capacity utilisation: SBI chief

    • SBI chairperson Arundhati Bhattacharya said on Monday the stressed assets level in the banking sector will come down once the key industrial sectors start functioning at their optimum capacity.
      During a media interaction, the SBI chief said that most industrial units are working at 60 to 65 per cent of their capacity against the desired 80 to 85 per cent.
      NPAs will start coming down as the demand comes back in the economy and then you see more and more capacity utilisation, which is still sub-optimal. Be it manufacturing units or power plants, most of them are running at around 60 to 65 per cent of their capacity, Bhattacharya said.
      When this comes up to 80 to 85 per cent capacity, you will definitely see NPAs coming down, she said when asked about Non Performing Assets (NPAs). She was in Gandhinagar to attend the foundation stone laying ceremony of SBI's Local Head Office (LHO) at Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT City).
      The 14-storey tower will come up at an investment of Rs 100 crore. Upon completion, current LHO in Ahmedabad will be shifted here. During her visit at the GIFT City, Bhattacharya also inaugurated SBI's IFSC Banking Unit (IBU) at International Financial Services Centre (IFCS) in the GIFT Special Economic Zone.
      Commenting on the recent announcement about the merger of SBI and its subsidiaries, Bhattacharya said the merger is essential in the wake of tough competition from Non Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs).
      The merger is essential, because today banking is evolving at very fast rate. You face competition from not only other banks, but also from NBFCs.
      In order to sustain profitable growth, it is important for us to consolidate, because small organisations do not have such strength or capital, she added.
      Commenting on a recent report that employees of some banks are depositing money from their pockets into Jan-Dhan accounts, Bhattacharya said, I am not aware of this fact. It is not something which happens in our bank, and I can assure you on that.
