PAC seeks inquiry against space dept 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - National
A powerful panel of parliamentarians has demanded an inquiry against the Department of Space for favouring private companies like Tata Sky in allocating transponders in INSAT and GSAT satellites. Even though the irregularities committed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) were first red-flagged by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) a year ago, the space agency has not yet launched any internal probe, as sought by the PAC. The activities against which the probe was sought took place more than 12 years ago when direct-to-home (DTH) satellite services were brought to India by several public and private broadcasters, including Doordarshan, Tata Sky, Dish TV and Sun TV. "While Tata Sky was fifth in the order of preference of satellite capacity allocation, it was granted precedence to INSAT-4A and given exclusive rights in December 2005, superseding Doordarshan. We are dismayed to note that the department has not initiated any action as yet," the PAC, headed by Congress leader K V Thomas, said in ...

K'taka should take lead in organic production: Nirmala 30.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The demand and consumption of organic products have increased globally by 10%. India's export of organic products, too, increased by 30% in the last one year but a lot more needs to be done, Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman said on Sunday. She was speaking at the valedictory function of the three-day-long Organics and Millets 2017 - National Trade Fair. She said the consumption of organic products was 32% in India and 47% in the US. The challenge before the Indian market is to increase aggregation, packaging and processing. The startups of Karnataka should come forward and take up the challenge, she said. "Byadgi chillies and black pepper from Karnataka are in good demand. But there is a need to package them well. There is one unit in Byadgi, but it is not up to the mark. It needs to improve. More and more organic and millet products should be made in Karnataka," she said. Minister for Agriculture Krishna Byre Gowda said the state government would organise an ...

Monrow puts best foot forward and every heel finds its sole 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
In the world of fashion, the long standing battle between comfort and style continues to be a major game changer. While one may end up choosing one over the other, the opportunity cost still pricks! When Veena Ashiya — a shoe-monger herself, owning 150 pairs — found Indian women struggling with having to make the choice, she started studying data on Indian women, particularly their feet. Some 3,000 women later, she discovered that Indian women happen to compromise with style in favour of comfort. "Indian women have broad feet. While they are willing to indulge and splurge, their choice is limited," she says. Most brands in the market, especially in the heels segment, are not designed specifically for broad feet, hence discouraging women from trendy footwear altogether, she says. Having found this gap in the market, Veena found her project — making heels comfortable for Indian women — and started working on it. First, her team started working on identifying the right incline, ...

VYABL uses technology to sow the seed for a bundle of joy 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
After all, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world! If gifting childless couples with the hope of parentage is noble enough, a young Bengaluru-based initiative is nurturing the ultimate tech-driven elixir. A will to address the torment of infertility among couples drove R Vijaygopal, along with Balachander Agoramurthy, Geetha Sanjay and Vasanthi Palanivel, to conceive VYABL. VYABL, an initiative of Innov4Sight, has treated 120 patients in the last six months, as part of its clinical study phase, with a 72% pregnancy success rate. Today, there are 27.5 million infertile Indian couples, of whom, only 270,000 seek evaluation every year, translating to less than 1%. This may be attributed to a lack of understanding about infertility, social stigma, or high treatment costs (Rs 5 lakh onwards), marred by a slim chance of success. The fertility industry in India is valued at Rs 5,400 crore. To address this, VYABL conducted research for six months on regenerative medicine-based therapeutics. "We are ...

Patanjali to wipe out MNCs from Indian market in 5 years, predicts Ramdev 30.4.2017 DNA: Top News
Yoga guru Ramdev said today that Patanjali Ayurveda, promoted by him, will steal the march over multinational firms manufacturing consumer products. Comparing them to the East India Company that had entered the country with a purpose to "loot", Ramdev said that he aims to make India free from the MNCs. He said that the MNCs here were not working for the country's development, rather their sole objective was to "loot" India. "Patanjali agle panch varshon mein in videshi kampaniyon ko moksh de degi ( Patanjali will finish the MNCs up from the Indian market in next five years)," he said. He was speaking at a function organised here to mark the birth anniversary of Yogi Bharat Bhushan. "In the next five years, Patanjali would educate the farmers about the latest techniques in farming to boost production. We will also offer decent prices for the produce," Ramdev, who also happens to be the founder of Patanjali, said. Ramdev also hailed the Uttar Pradesh government under Yogi Adityanath, who he said, ...

Ola lost Rs 6 crore a day during 2015-16 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Business
SoftBank-backed cab aggregator Ola posted a consolidated loss of over Rs. 2,311 crore -- about Rs. 6 crore a day -- during fiscal 2015-16, on account of heavy advertising and promotional expenses and high employee cost. The Bengaluru-based firm, which is locked in an intense battle for leadership with US-based Uber, has seen its losses widen about three times from Rs. 796.11 crore in 2014-15, Ola said in a filing with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. ANI Technologies -- which runs Ola -- did see its revenues registering a stellar growth at Rs. 758.23 crore during 2015-16 compared to Rs. 103.77 crore in the previous fiscal. Emails sent to Ola remained unanswered. Anchal Agarwal, co-founder of research and analytics firm Tofler said while the absolute amount of losses have indeed widened, the loss margin has "reduced considerably". "They spent almost Rs. 8.5 for every rupee earned in 2014-15. That number is down to almost Rs. 4 for every rupee earned for 2015-16. With the pull-back in incentives etc in ...
