No insurance payouts for selfie deaths 17.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Think long and hard before you take that perfect selfie on an adventure trip. Most insurance companies are not going to entertain your accident claims. General insurance companies that offer accidental death benefits, including health insurance, are concerned about the "selfie-crazed youth" who go to any extent to take photos. Youth posing in front of an exotic waterfall during a trek or an uphill cliffhanger are unaware of the impending danger: they can get seriously injured, maimed or worse still, die. And to top that, insurance companies will not compensate them or their families. Rajiv Kumar, MD & CEO, Universal Sompo General Insurance, said insurance policies usually did not cover accidental injuries or deaths sustained by the insured while posing for selfies as a result of gross negligence or reckless act. The company hasnt yet reported any claims over selfie deaths, he added. A spokesperson for another insurer said most companies did not pay for deaths occurring during adventure ...

Indian startups - traversing maturity cycle in 2017 17.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The storied success of Indian tech startups is nearly a decade-old. It is estimated that there are 5,200 of them today, and growing at 7% (over the previous year). Some things remain unchanged though. For instance, Bengaluru, Delhi NCR and Mumbai constitute 68% of the startup base and continue to remain hot spots. Although, promising startups are emerging from Tier II and III cities as well (up from 16% in 2016 to 20% currently), ushering a whiff of democratisation. India has nine Unicorns, and though we are behind the US and China on absolute count, we have the second highest average unicorn valuation. This year, approximately, 1,000 startups were added, and though it is lower than last year, interestingly, 47% were in the B2B segment, signaling a definitive shift from B2C. To be fair, this is a trend that has been gaining prominence in the last couple of years, and this year, it was even more pronounced. The increasing influence of Chief Digital Officers (in large enterprises) and the compounded impact ...

Building the road to strong infra 17.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Business
Rome wasnt built in a day! This expression best describes the snails pace at which Indias infrastructure development was advancing over the last five years, and its gradual rise back to a state of progress and a better future. The country has patiently persevered in understanding the bottlenecks afflicting infrastructure â€" the most critical component for India in order to realise its aspiration of emerging as a superpower â€" and the government, along with industry stakeholders, has been working towards giving the sector a new lease of life, even as economic and policy factors play their respective roles. Largely enabled by government will, infrastructural development finding its place in the country again has a direct correlation with manufacturers of construction equipment, commercial vehicles, related ancillaries and MSMEs. It enlivens a vast ecosystem, which creates jobs and generates GDP for the country. Building slowdown The infrastructure industry did fairly well until ...
