Zee Entertainment to merge with Sony Pictures #FinanceIndia #StockMarketNEWS #Business
Its nearest rival would be now Star and Disney in the Indian market



New Delhi: India’s largest publicly-traded television network Zee Entertainment Enterprises will merge with Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI), capping days of high drama during which the firm’s shareholders sought removal of key officials.



Sony, which will invest US$ 1. 575 billion, will hold 52. 93 per cent stake in the merged entity and Zee the remaining 47. 07, Zee Entertainment Enterprises (ZEEL) said in a statement.



In recent days, Zee has seen its top investor seek a management reshuffle, including the exit of chief executive Punit Goenka. A majority of the merged company’s board would be nominated by Sony, while Goenka would lead it, according to the terms of the deal.



Invesco Developing Markets Fund and OFI Global China Fund LLC, which together hold about 17. 9 per cent stake in Zee, had sought an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders last week to oust Goenka along with two board members.



The move was seen as an attempt to end the sway of founder Subhash Chandra’s family over the company founded in 1992.



While the deal may take some pressure off Zee, it will help expand Sony’s media business in India.



In an exchange filing, Zee said it has entered into a non-binding term sheet with SPNI to bring together their linear networks, digital assets, production operations and programme libraries.



The combined entity will own over 70 TV channels, 2 video streaming services (ZEE5 and Sony LIV) and two film studios (Zee Studios and Sony Pictures Films India) making it the largest entertainment network in India.



Its nearest rival would be now Star and Disney in the Indian market.



“The merger of ZEEL and SPNI would bring together two leading Indian media network businesses, benefitting consumers throughout India across content genres, from film to sports. The combined company is expected to benefit all stakeholders given strong synergies between ZEEL and SPNI,? said SPNI in a statement.



While in a separate statement ZEEL said, its board in a meeting held on Tuesday unanimously provided an in-principle approval for the merger between SPNI and the company.



“The board concluded that the merger will be in the best interest of all the shareholders and stakeholders. The merger is in line with ZEEL’s strategy of achieving higher growth and profitability as a leading media and entertainment company across South Asia,? it said.



According to ZEEL, “With this corporate development, the merged entity will result into an accelerated growth and a significant opportunity to create tremendous value for all its stakeholders.

New Delhi



Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has said that Chinese companies have not made investments in highway projects in India in recent times.



Amid the border standoff with China, Gadkari, in July 2020, had said that India will not allow Chinese companies to participate in highway projects, including those through joint ventures.



On whether Chinese companies have invested in India’s highway projects in the recent times, Gadkari replied in the negative. However, he did not elaborate on the issue.



Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Gadkari also said that India will have to increase its exports and reduceimports.



To another question on US-based electric car major Tesla’s demand of reduction in import duties on electric vehicles (EVs) in India, Gadkari said, “The decision on giving any tax concession to Tesla will be taken by the finance ministry.?



In a letter to the road ministry, the US firm had stated that the effective import tariff of 110 per cent on vehicles with customs value above USD 40,000 is “prohibitive? to zero-emission vehicles.



It has requested the government to standardise the tariff on electric cars to 40 per cent irrespective of the customs value, and withdraw the social welfare surcharge of 10 per cent on electric cars.



Gadkari said that the government is looking for prospects about green hydrogen as a potential transport fuel.



“To make ‘India of the future’, we will have to increase our exports and reduce imports,? he asserted.

RBI needs to be more consumer friendly: Montek #FinanceIndia #StockMarketNEWS
RBI needs to be more consumer friendly: Montek New Delhi, Sept 22 (KNN) “The Reserve Bank of India needs to engage with consumers and clearly explain them rationale and impact of its regulations”, highlighted Montek Singh Ahluwalia, former Deputy Chair, Planning Commission of India during an online discussion convened by CUTS International on the issue of Evaluating Consumer Welfare in Digital Payments.

The discussion reviewed a recent RBI circular that prohibits the continuation of frictionless e-mandates from modes like debit cards from October 2021, if conditions mentioned therein are not complied with by industry stakeholders, particularly banks.

Aruna Sharma, former Secretary, The government of India, wondered whether RBI was worried about the convenience of consumers or banks. Its actions suggest that it is more concerned about the well-being of market players than consumers. She cautioned that such an approach may make consumers move away from the digital economy, towards a cash economy.

It was pointed out that RBIs actions of increasing friction in digital payments are likely to hit vulnerable consumers, including digital novices and those with disabilities. This is likely to exacerbate the digital divide and pose challenges to the Government’s vision of an equitable digital society.

Pradeep S Mehta, Secretary General, CUTS International, noted that RBIs actions have forced consumers to choose between convenience and security of digital payments, which should not be the case. Consumers should be free to choose the modes of making digital payments, the amount which they are comfortable in transacting without additional authentication, and whether to securely store card details with merchants or not.

Akash Karmakar, Partner, Panag and Babu, pointed out that the RBI has not prescribed any consequences for non-compliance by banks, who have little incentive to comply with conditions of the circular.

Bhargavi Zaveri, Doctoral Candidate, National University of Singapore, highlighted the importance of friction free digital interfaces and pointed out that friction can lead to consumers abandoning transactions mid-way.

Ashish Aggarwal, Vice President, Nasscom, suggested that the regulator could provide weekly updates in terms of compliance by banks with its circular, and should work more closely with stakeholders to ensure consumer welfare is not compromised.

Close to 100 stakeholders participated in the discussion, including representatives from government departments, policy influencers, regulators, think tanks, consumer groups, academia and media.

South India may become a .5 Trillion Economy by 2025: VP New Delhi, Sept 23 (KNN) By keeping the focus on reforms, ‘Ease of Doing Business’ and adopting the best practices to attract investments, South India can achieve an aspirational target of becoming .5 Trillion Economy by 2025.

Speaking virtually at ‘Mystic South, Global Linkages Summit - Towards a .5 Trillion Economy by 2025’ organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry, Vice President, M Venkaiah Naidu called upon the industry to work with the Government on implementing various reforms with greater vigour and pave the way for sustained economic growth in the coming decade.

Stressing the need for India to leapfrog ahead to achieve the required employment and productivity growth, he said that global trends such as digitization and automation, urbanization, rising incomes, sustainability, health, and safety are assuming a new significance in the wake of the pandemic. “For India, these trends could catalyze growth and become the hallmarks of the post-pandemic economy”, he added.

The Vice President also called for creating global hubs in manufacturing, agricultural exports, digital services, next-generation financial products, high-efficiency logistics, power, sharing economy and modern retail.

Listing out the opportunities in the region, he said that South India combines manufacturing with services, culture with modern values and education with skills.

While lauding the healthy competition among various States in the country to industrialize and attract investments, he stressed the need for bestowing special attention on agriculture. He said there was a need to adopt a ‘positive bias’ towards agriculture to sustain the growth rate.

ADB lowers India’s GDP growth projection for this fiscal to 10% #FinanceIndia #StockMarketNEWS #Business
New Delhi: The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has lowered India’s growth projections for the current financial year by a percentage point to 10 per cent, mainly due to disruptions in economic activity caused by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.



In April, ADB had projected a growth rate of 11 per cent in 2021-22 for India.



In its update of the Asian Development Outlook (ADO) released on Wednesday, the multilateral lending agency has also trimmed the growth forecast for Asia as a region from 7. 3 per cent to 7. 1 per cent for 2021, though it retained the growth projections for China at 8. 1 per cent.



“The growth forecast for India in fiscal year 2021 (ending March 2022) is revised down, as May’s spike in COVID-19 dented the recovery. The outbreak, however, dissipated faster than anticipated, resulting in several states easing lockdown measures and returning to more normal travel patterns,? said the ADO Update (ADOU) 2021.



The economy is expected to rebound strongly in the remaining three quarters of FY2021, and grow by 10 per cent in the full fiscal year, before moderating to 7. 5 per cent in FY2022 (fiscal ending March 2023), ADB said.



The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) also trimmed India’s economic growth projection by a similar margin to 9. 5 per cent in June this year.



The forecast, for the 12 months ending March 31, 2022, takes into account disruptions in economic activity caused by the second wave of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, which adversely impacted services, domestic consumption, and the urban informal sector, ADB said.



Because consumption will recover only gradually, the government spending and exports will contribute more to FY2021 than they did in the previous fiscal, it said.



“The Indian economy is showing encouraging signs of recovery as the effects of the second wave dissipate. The government’s vaccination drive, its new fiscal stimulus package, and initiatives to free more resources for infrastructure development, along with measures to strengthen health-related interventions, are helping speed up recovery,? Takeo Konishi, ADB Country Director for India, said.



About South Asia, comprising Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, the update said the outlook varies across the subregion.



“The subregion is projected to expand more slowly this year than earlier projected, but faster next year. While India’s drives the forecast, growth rates will vary across economies. As well as for India, this Update revises down 2021’s forecasts for Bangladesh and Nepal, both grappling with another resurgence in COVID-19 cases.

Concern raised over 20% capacity utilisation norm for e-waste #FinanceIndia #StockMarketNEWS #Business
Panaji: The recycling industry during the concluding session of the Recycling Business Summit 2021 in the state, on Wednesday, expressed concern over the 20 per cent capacity utilisation norm for e-waste.



According to the industry, the norm is hampering e-waste recycling despite India being the 3rd largest e-waste generator in the world.



The industry also raised the issue of GST on e-waste, pointing out that GST on purchase of e- waste is five per cent, the GST on finished goods sold by the recyclers is 18 per cent. Hence, most kabadiwalas buy at five per cent and sell the finished goods for cash.



“Organised recyclers find it difficult to sell the downstream materials at a better rate, and it results in revenue loss to the exchequer due to the GST rate flaw,? said participants at the summit



A session on plastic recycling highlighted the proposed BIS standards being imposed on non-prime scrap material with effect from October 15 2021.



“Such imposition will have an adverse impact on 75,000 MT export of plastic market and 5000 MSME plastic recycling units which provide the huge employment to ragpickers and more women from the weaker section of the society,? said Prabhjot Sodhi, senior director, Centre for Environment Education.



Earlier, during the summit, the recycling industry decided to come together against the upcoming standardisation for scrap. The Recycling Business Summit 2021, was held by the Material Recycling Association of India (MRAI).

New Delhi: Reserve Bank Governor Shaktikanta Das on Wednesday pitched for higher investment in infrastructure and reforms in labour and product markets to achieve sustainable growth post-pandemic.



Addressing AIMA National Management Convention, Das underlined the need for increased investment in healthcare education, digital and physical infrastructure to ensure sustainable growth and generate employment opportunities.



Noting that the pandemic has affected the poor and the vulnerable more in emerging and developing countries, Das said, “Our endeavour should be to ensure livable and sustainable growth in the post-pandemic future. Restoring the durability of private consumption, which has remained historically the mainstay of aggregate demand will be very crucial going forward?.



More importantly, sustainable growth should entail meeting on macro fundamentals via medium-term investments, sound financial systems and structural reforms, he said.



“Towards this objective, a big push to investment in healthcare, education, innovation, physical and digital infrastructure will be required. We should also continue with further reforms in labour too,? he said.

Oil futures climbed on Wednesday, buoyed by a weekly decline in U.S. crude supplies, even as gasoline stockpiles edged higher. While much of the data, like the rise in crude production, is "still reflective of temporary hurricane impacts, this week's [Energy Information Administration] report did offer a glimpse into what is likely to come in the weeks ahead" with the reported 1.5 million barrel drop in crude stocks at the Cushing, Okla., storage hub, said Troy Vincent, market analyst at DTN.

Dollar spikes against Turkish lira after surprise rate cut #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The dollar spiked against the Turkish lira as the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey made a surprise decision to cut interest rates, lowering them to 18% from 19%. The central bank said the recent increase in inflation has been driven by transitory factors, while the decelerating impact of the monetary tightening on credit and domestic demand is being observed. "The tightness in monetary stance has started to have a higher than envisaged contractionary effect on commercial loans. In addition, macroprudential policy framework has been strengthened to curb personal loan growth," the central bank said. The dollar rose to 8.7709 lira from 8.6537 lira on Wednesday.

Bank of England maintains bond purchase program in 7-2 vote #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The Bank of England on Thursday unanimously decided to keep interest rates at 0.1%, and its two newest members were on the side of maintaining its bond purchase program in a 7-2 vote. Dave Ramsden and Michael Saunders voted to reduce the government bond purchase target to £840 billion from £875 billion, with Ramsden switching sides from his August decision. The outlook for the labor market, and hence underlying inflationary pressures, was particularly uncertain, and that some of this uncertainty should be resolved over coming months, the majority of Bank of England members said, according to the minutes. Monetary policy would at some point need to start to unwind some of its post-pandemic stimulus, the majority said, while Ramsden and Saunders argued asset purchases when CPI inflation was above 3% and the output gap was closed might cause medium-term inflation expectations to drift up further. The pound was trading at .3693 shortly after the decision, and the 2-year gilt inched up to 0.31%.
