Swapna Barman hopeful of re-inclusion in Target Olympic Podium Scheme


first_imgAsian Games 2018 gold medal winner Swapna Barman is hopeful of her re-inclusion in the Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) after she was dropped from the pragramme’s revised list earlier this month.Swapna had earned 6026 points at the Asian Games in Jakarta to win gold in the heptathlon event but her her performance was much lower than the Olympic standards.She was hence excluded from the scheme keeping in mind the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.”I have nothing to comment on it (omission from TOPS). It’s the decision by the sports ministry. I will just have to keep performing. I was in TOPS because of my performance. I’m sure to be back again if I start performing again,” she said.Swapna said she has been inspired by Mary Kom’s sixth world championship title.”It’s amazing to see what she’s achieving at the age of 36. I’m just 22 now. I will also want to become like her. I don’t know whether I would become like her, but there’s no harm in trying,” Swapna said.She is aiming to get into 6200-plus points bracket at the Asian Championships in Doha next year.Swapna said she’s waiting for her customised shoes to be delivered so she resumes training.”We have given the measurements in Germany. I’ve heard, it’s already arrived in New Delhi. I’m just waiting for the shoes to get it delivered here so we start practicing.”Earlier, Swapna was given Rs 10 lakh by Bandhan Bank CEO Chandra Sekhar Ghosh.(With inputs from PTI)last_img read more

Everton’s Marco Silva unfazed by illegal approach investigation


first_imgShare on Messenger Watford Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend news Share on LinkedIn Share on Pinterest Topics Read more Evertoncenter_img Share on Twitter Marco Silva has claimed he has “zero concern” over an independent inquiry into whether Everton made an illegal approach for his services while he was manager of Watford last season.The Premier League has asked a law firm to look into Watford’s allegation that Everton “tapped up” Silva in the wake of Ronald Koeman’s dismissal last October. Attempts by the Premier League to mediate between the clubs have been unsuccessful and, should the investigation find Everton have a case to answer, an independent commission led by a QC would consider the charges.The commission could impose a substantial fine or an unprecedented points deduction on Everton but despite the seriousness of the possible punishments, Silva insists he is unperturbed by the latest development in the dispute.“It is not something for me to think about,” the Everton manager said. “My focus is on my work and my club as well. Nothing more. It is not for us to talk about the situation. Believe me, I have zero concerns about this situation and we have to look forward and prepare well for our games. Nothing more.”Silva was clearly irritated as questions about the inquiry continued. He added: “If you want to talk only about this situation then there is nothing more to speak about because I don’t know what you are talking about. I didn’t read or hear nothing about the situation.”Watford rejected Everton’s request to speak to the Portuguese coach last November, and a lucrative compensation offer, only to sack Silva two months later following a run of one win in 11 games. They blamed “an unwarranted approach” by a rival club for the deterioration in focus and results and claimed Watford’s future had been “jeopardised”.Everton view the independent inquiry as an expected next step in the unresolved dispute. Farhad Moshiri, the majority shareholder as of this week, eventually got his man when Silva succeeded Sam Allardyce in June.Séamus Coleman, meanwhile, is expected to miss only a fortnight with a stress fracture of the foot suffered with the Republic of Ireland.Everton are also being investigated over allegations they tapped up a former academy player at Cardiff City in 2016. If found guilty of making an illegal approach for the schoolboy, who now plays for Manchester United, the club could be handed an academy transfer ban.The club said in a statement: “Everton has been notified of an allegation relating to an approach by the club to an academy-aged player. On being made aware of this, we immediately launched an internal investigation and have been co-operating fully with all of the relevant authorities.” Share via Email Share on Facebook Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content Premier Leaguelast_img read more

Aniston was told to lose 30 pounds


first_imgLos Angeles: Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston was asked to lose 30 pounds if she wanted to sustain in the showbiz. In a new book, titled ‘Generation Friends: An Inside Look at the Show That Defined a Television Era’, Saul Austerlitz said that it was always tough to be a woman in the industry and match up to its impossibly high beauty standards. “She had to lose thirty pounds if she wanted to stay in Hollywood. Los Angeles was a tough place to be an actor, it was a tough place to be a woman, and Jennifer Aniston’s agent was reluctantly leveling with her,” Austerlitz writes.

Focus on revenue generation


first_imgThe Finance minister’s announcement to bring down corporate tax rates in India will surely provide a substantial boost to the economy. Essentially, the tax policy changes will allow for freeing up of cash-flows that companies can utilise to make capital allocation decisions ranging from capital expenditure, talent acquisition, or strengthening the balance sheets. A perspicuous manner of looking at the expenditure-revenue play would be to look at the cash flowing into the economy due to policy changes. The taxation policy changes that allow for lower corporate taxes will allow more cash in hand for corporates. It is expected that additional cash in the hands of the companies will allow for a slew of opportunities to be tapped into by the corporate sector. Most importantly, the fiscal boost will benefit the industry supply chains as excess cash will boost corporates and their suppliers, thereby having a positive ripple effect. Also Read – Hijacking Bapu’s legacyFirstly, for cash-strapped corporates, this is an opportunity to get their capital structure in order. In an economy where companies have faced issues with excessive debt, this is an opportunity for the cash to be utilised to pare back debt and repay lenders thereby both improving corporate balance sheets and pumping credit into the system. Secondly, excess liquidity will be available allowing Indian companies to gradually start competing better on a global level through capital expenditure in areas they deem necessary. Thirdly, cash in hand also makes Indian companies a more attractive destination for both domestic and international capital (which of late has been going out). Also Read – The future is here!Whichever way one looks at tax changes, the excess money will help whether corporates decide to invest the money, pay back loans, buyback debt, pay shareholders, or boost salaries. Primarily, the cash flow positive nature of the policy changes by the government will provide a significant fillip to economic growth. More importantly, if the policy implementation is done well, then the positive multipliers for the economy will be much beyond this financial year. Structurally, low tax rates can have significant positive multiplier effects in the years to come. Now with robust tax policy moves to boost the economy through “expenditure”, the government must focus extensively on the “revenue” generation side. As is the case with all policy changes, especially expansionary fiscal policy, there is now the need to generate the excess cash by the government which will then be ploughed back into the economy. In layman terms, how can the government generate more money despite the substantial cut in tax rates that will be effectively used for boosting the economy? Therefore, now is the time to also start focusing on effective “revenue” generation to fund the expansionary fiscal policy. The revenue foregone to fund the corporate tax cuts, as stated by the government, is Rs 1, 45,000 crores. More effective revenue generation policies are, therefore, the need of the hour. Non-tax revenue sources such as asset monetisation must be focused upon to ensure a steady flow of cash that can help finance the revenue foregone. While asset monetisation from the government saw some action in terms of the NHAI TOT auctions last year, given the moves on the “expenditure” side, this is the time to ensure that the “revenue” generation side picks up in speed, efficiency and clarity. Monetising assets ranging from land banks sitting with government institutions, cash-generating infrastructure assets and inefficient companies has been debated upon for long. Now is the time to implement a clear roadmap to generating revenues through such monetisation schemes. Because advantages of such non-tax revenue generation schemes are multi-fold, for one, such schemes will assist in providing revenues that are needed to fund fiscal policy. For the other, markets and investors will have greater confidence seeing a smoothening in the policy frameworks that help cash to flow into productive uses within the economy thereby generating greater investor confidence in Indian investments. The issues that corporate balance sheets and the broader Indian economy have faced over the last few years at a core level are cash-flow related, or rather a shortage in liquidity. Policy moves such as the present cut of tax rates for the corporate world aimed at freeing up cash-flows on corporate balance sheets and policies aimed at effectively generating the cash-flows as mentioned above will provide a significant boost to the Indian economy. Going forward, the ability to balance the effective policy framing and implementation on both the “expenditure” and “revenue” side will be the real game-changer.

New Delhi Bharti Airtel has initiated a massive f


first_imgNew Delhi: Bharti Airtel has initiated a massive fund raising exercise, estimated at up to USD 1 billion (about Rs 7,000 crore), via a bond issue by its subsidiary Network i2i, the proceeds of which will be used to cut debt for the telco that is engaged in a turf war in the Indian telecom market. The mega fund raiser comes just months after the Sunil Mittal led company raised Rs 25,000 crore through a rights issue. The telecom sector has been battered by falling tariffs, eroding profitability, and mounting debt, in the face of stiff competition triggered by disruptive offerings of Reliance Jio, owned by Mukesh Ambani. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra But with the market for voice and data growing at an explosive pace and intensifying competition, telecom operators have been investing in strengthening networks, and preparing war chests to protect their turfs. In a regulatory filing on Tuesday, Bharti Airtel announced that an “…offering of USD denominated Guaranteed Subordinated Perpetual Securities by Network i2i Limited (a direct 100 per cent subsidiary of Bharti Airtel) expected to be rated ‘BB’ by both S&P and Fitch may follow, subject to market conditions.” Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 days Bharti Airtel has appointed a clutch of bankers including BofA Merrill Lynch, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, HSBC, J P Morgan and Standard Chartered Bank as joint bookrunners and joint lead managers to organise a series of fixed income investor meetings and calls across Asia, Europe and the US starting Wednesday, it added. Simply put, a perpetual bond is a fixed income security with no maturity date, that yields a steady flow of interest payments. Airtel at the time of its rights issue earlier this year, had mentioned it would also raise additional Rs 7,000 crore through a foreign currency perpetual bond issue. Sources said that the ensuing fundraising is likely to be in range of USD 750 million to USD 1 billion, and the final figure will be arrived at, based on market response. The proceeds from the issue will be utilised for pruning debt of Bharti Airtel, which as on June 2019 stood at a staggering Rs 1.16 lakh crore. Meanwhile, S&P Global Ratings has said it expects Bharti Airtel’s leverage to remain elevated over the next six to nine months, but improve gradually due to reduced capital spending and increasing stability in its India mobile operations. “We assess Network i2i Ltd’s proposed USD 1 billion subordinated perpetual securities (PERPS) as having intermediate equity content. The PERPS are guaranteed by Bharti. We estimate the issuance will improve the India-based telecom operator’s FFO-to-debt ratio (funds from operations to debt ratio) by about 50 basis points,” S&P Global Ratings said in a statement. The move comes at a time the incumbent operators are facing acute financial stress and are also experiencing subscriber churn. On the last count by sector regulator, Reliance Jio added 85.39 lakh mobile users in July, while arch rivals Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea lost a cumulative 60 lakh users during the month. The mobile subscriber base of Reliance Jio stood at 33.97 crore, as the company added 85.39 lakh users during July. In contrast, the two older operators Airtel and Vodafone Idea continued to experience subscriber churn. Bharti Airtel (including Tata Teleservices numbers) lost 25.8 lakh mobile users during the month, bringing down its subscriber base to 32.85 crore. Vodafone Idea, on the other hand, lost 33.9 lakh customers as its base fell to 38 crore users. Bharti Airtel had posted a Rs 2,866 crore loss for the June quarter, its first consolidated loss in 14 years, as the telco lost ground to rival Reliance Jio and took a hit from exceptional items such as charges towards accelerated depreciation of 3G network gear. Airtel had logged a net profit of Rs 97 crore in the June quarter of the previous fiscal. The revenue of the company rose 4.7 per cent to Rs 20,738 crore during the first quarter ended June 2019.last_img read more
