Bonnier Joins ABCs Rapid Report

first_imgBonnier has joined the growing list of major magazine publishers to enlist in the Audit Bureau of Circulation’s Rapid Report system. When it launched in 2006, the free-of-charge Rapid Report system—which allows publishers to voluntarily report their top-line circulation data on an issue-by-issue basis within weeks of the on-sale date—was slow to get participation from major publishers, who were reluctant to share the data with rivals.The number of publishers to sign on seems to have skyrocketed since last fall, when Time Inc., which sold its Parenting and Time4 Media groups to Bonnier last year, joined the program. “We’re very pleased by the response we’ve received in the past few months,” an ABC spokesperson says. “We’re seeing a good increase in the number of participating titles.” American Media Inc. and Meredith have been on board since the beginning. Wenner Media, a long-time Rapid Report holdout, has now joined, too.Four of Bonnier’s titles—Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, Parenting and Popular Science—will begin with their first issues of 2008, the publisher announced this week.“By committing our highest circulation titles to participate in Rapid Report, we’re providing our advertisers with the information they need to ensure that our titles are reaching the consumers they want,” Bonnier Corp. CEO Terry Snow said in a statement.Other major magazine publishers signed on for the program include Bauer, Condé Nast, Hachette, Hearst and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.last_img read more

Payments banks struggle to add more depositors after almost 1 year of

first_imgAirtel Payments BankTwitterPayments banks are struggling to draw depositors after almost a year of starting operations in India.Currently, India has four operational payment banks — Airtel Payments Bank, Fino Payments Bank, India Post Payments Bank and PayTM Payments Bank. And as of September 30, all four banks’ combined outstanding demand deposits stood at Rs 236.45 crore, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said in a response to an RTI application filed by BloombergQuint.Demand deposits are deposits that customers hold in their savings accounts and current accounts, and can be withdrawn without any prior notice.For payments banks, the central bank has capped demand deposits at Rs 1 lakh in each account. Payment banks are not allowed to offer fixed deposits and provide loans to customers. Moreover, RBI has mandated payment banks to invest majority of their deposits in government securities.Of the Rs 236.45 crore demand deposits with the four banks, the largest share — worth Rs 224.03 crore — lies with Airtel Payments Bank, while Rs 6.8 crore is parked with Fino Payments Bank, and PayTM Payments Bank has demand deposits worth Rs 3.25 crore as on September 30, BQ reported.Airtel Payment Bank has the highest market share in the payment banking space because it offers highest interest for demand deposit in India 7.25 percent. Peers like India Post Payments Bank offer 4.5-5.5 percent interest to its customer, while Paytm Payment Bank offers 4 percent.”As a business we are not chasing customer deposits right now. We have a well established presence and customer transactions have been growing steadily. That is the part of the business that we are focussing on right now. Deposits will start flowing in as the payments bank grows,” Rishi Gupta, Chief Executive Officer, Fino Payments Bank, told the business news portal.Do the numbers suggest that payments banks are waning in popularity over the quarters? Difficult to say, as it has been just one year since payments banks were rolled out. But one thing is evident: Payments banks’ managements want to polish their strategy to lure more customers.However, some experts feel the other way. “For a payments bank CASA won’t make much sense since it is not permitted to lend. It can only invest in government securities and other bank deposits and use the differential as a way to earn some margin. These companies would rather use the data they collect through transactions and use it to sell third party products to make an income,” Kalpesh Mehta, partner, Deloitte India, told BloombergQuint.last_img read more

BNP asks EC to allow alternative candidates

BNP asks EC to allow alternative candidates

first_imgLogo of BNPThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Thursday demanded the election commission either allow alternative candidates or reschedule the election date for those constituencies where BNP candidates have been declared illegal by the High Court, reports UNB.”Already, our eight candidates have been declared illegal by the court. We declared one candidate for each constituency who were declared legal by the EC. If these candidates are declared illegal now, who’ll take the responsibility?,” BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan asked.The BNP leader came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after a meeting with the CEC and its other officials at Nirbachan Bhaban in the city.When the election commission declared them legal, the court is declaring them illegal. If there was any mistake it was done by the EC, he said.”We’ve proposed the election commission two things — either allow us to field alternative candidates to those constituencies where BNP candidates have been declared illegal by the court or reschedule the election there,” he said.The election commission heard our complaints and said they will take a decision in this regard soon, he said.The High Court declared eight BNP aspirants illegal who were earlier declared qualified by the returning officers and the election commission. The eight aspirants filed nominations for Jamalpur-4, Bagura-3, Brahmanbaria-4, Rangpur-1, Mymensingh-8, Jhenaidah-2, Joypurhat-1 and Rajshahi-6.BNP vice chairman Selima Rahman, joint secretary general Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal, BNP chairperson’s adviser Bijan Kanti Sarker were present.last_img read more
