BJP to be blamed for crisis in Maharashtra, says Congress

first_imgA day after fault lines in Maharashtra Congress were visible over the issue of extending support to Shiv Sena, the State leadership blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the continuing crisis. “The BJP is responsible for the mess in the State. It had given the word to its ally in Maharashtra. It did not fulfil the promise neither it treated its ally with care. The BJP is holding out the threat of President’s Rule in Maharashtra. Whom are they threatening? Because of the BJP, entire State has landed in a difficult position,” said State Congress president Balasaheb Thorat. Mr. Thorat alleged that the BJP has already started using all dirty tricks to poach MLAs of other parties. “The BJP was using all its tricks even before the elections. Now that they are falling short of numbers, it is resorting to the same methods,” he claimed.Leader of Opposition Vijay Vadettiwar too blamed the BJP for leading the State towards constitutional crisis. “If the BJP has emerged as the single largest party in the State, then it is the party’s responsibility to stake claim and form the government. By not doing so, the party is pushing the State towards President’s Rule. They are responsible for the present condition of the State,” he said. Meanwhile, a day after announcing a three-day tour to areas affected by excessive unseasonal rains, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar is likely to cut short his tour and return to Mumbai on Friday morning. The five-year term of the present Assembly ends on November 8 midnight. “It seems the BJP is not going to stake claim and is ready for President’s Rule. The party seem to be on wait and watch mode till Sena blinks. It will not form the government with minority mandate,” said senior journalist and political commentator Sanjay Jog.last_img read more

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
