Sitharaman to hold review meeting with public sector banks today 19.9.2019
New Delhi: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will hold a review meeting with public sector banks (PSBs) on Thursday to discuss various issues, including follow up on transmission of monetary policy rates. The government is set to ask PSBs to expeditiously introduce repo-rate linked products "to step up affordable credit", according to an agenda item of the meeting. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had earlier this month made it mandatory for banks to link all their fresh retail loans to an external benchmark - effective October 1 - and the central bank's repo rate being one such benchmark. Following the move, banks such as Punjab National Bank and Allahabad Bank announced linking their retail loans with the RBI's repo rate. The finance ministry will also discuss ways in which PSBs can offer doorstep banking facility. Some PSBs offer doorstep banking for citizens over 70 years of age and differently-abled customers.

Trump at 'Howdy Modi': 2 leaders who are so different, and yet share so much 19.9.2019
On the face of it, there is nothing in common between US President Donald Trump and India"s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mr Trump is a billionaire businessman; a colourful TV show host with a flamboyant, playboyish, controversy-filled personal life who was catapulted as the 45th US President in January 2017, dashing the hopes of the first woman presidential candidate. Mr Modi, on the other hand, has spent his formative years at the grassroots level as a trained and disciplined swayamsewak of the RSS who rose to be the chief minister of Gujarat for13 years, earned accolades for his development and administrative record and emerged as Prime Minister of India in May 2014 after inflicting a crushing defeat on the 129-year-old Congress Party, reducing its tally to a humiliating 44 seats. Successfully completing five years and increasing the BJP"s majority in Parliament following the 2019 elections, Mr Modi has metamorphosed into the most popular national leader of India today — his diehard ...

France fights startup drain with $5.5 billion 19.9.2019
Paris: How do you stop European tech firms from moving to the US once they start eyeing the big time? Part of the solution is finding them access to funding at home. French President Emma-nuel Macron has made the continent's latest move to muster help for homegrown start-ups, promising five billion euros ($5.5 billion) of tech investments over the next three years. The funds, pledged by banks, insurers and other big investors, include two billion euros earmarked for "late stage" projects requiring significant amounts usually out of reach to EU firms. "The battle we're fighting is one of sovereignty," Macron told tech executives and venture capitalists at an Elysee Palace dinner on Tuesday. "If we don't build our own champions in all new areas—digital, artificial intelligence—our choices... will be dictated by others," he said. Officials across Europe fear being left behind as American giants, and more recently Chinese firms, increasingly dominate ...

J&K Goovernor Satya Pal Malik wants growth appeal 19.9.2019
Srinagar: Jammu & Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik said on Wednesday that instead of waging a war, Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) could be retrieved by making the Indian side of the state prosperous to the extent that people living across the dividing line rise in revolt and seek to become a part of J&K. Referring to statements by BJP leaders, that after stripping J&K of its special status and splitting the state into two union territories, the government"s next target was to liberate PoK, the governor said, "For the past 10-15 days, some of our ministers, who otherwise hardly get a chance to speak on international issues, continue to talk of invading PoK and making it a part of India." He then said, "This is their way of thinking. I say if the next target is PoK, then we could, instead of waging war, retrieve it by making Jammu & Kashmir amply prosperous. If we are able to hold the people of J&K with great reverence, make them distinguished and the best among ...
