Once you reach the prime, marriageable age in India, everybody is after you to get married! And my parents and family were no exception when it came to convincing me for marriage. But, I stuck to my decision of not getting married just because my work was simply my first love! By the age of 28, I was a very successful lawyer, earning a six-figure salary. Needless to say, everyone was proud of me. I was proud of myself because I had always been dedicated to my work. And now, I only wanted to soar higher. Amidst all this, I didn’t have time for love and relationships and that had been perfectly alright by me. I chose my career and numerous times, I had turned down love only so that I could focus on myself and my work. That worked well for me until I began approaching my marriageable age. Suddenly, as soon as I turned 30, my parents and family seemed frantic to get me married. One of the many reasons was because my biological clock was ticking and I was thirty! I had always been a ... » Learn More about Love Capsule: I’m 35 and I never thought I would meet my soulmate at a business seminar!

February 26, 2021 08:48 A growing number of private businesses require biometric authentication from customers, which has led to complaints of privacy invasion. Biometric data are difficult to fake but also tell businesses far more than they need to know about a customer. Bars, convenience stores and ski resorts have been collecting biometric information of customers who register on to track any coronavirus infections. But many of them have failed to offer any alternative to customers who refuse and simply turned them away. The Vivaldi Park Ski Resort in Hongcheon, Gangwon Province introduced a new biometric identification system last December requiring season ticket holders to verify who they are by the patterns of blood vessels in their fingers. A staffer at the resort claimed it was an "essential" way of checking the ID of customers without making face-to-face contact with them. Now other ski resorts are using the same method. Since August of last year, biometric ... » Learn More about More Businesses Demand Biometric ID

Apart from bringing new suppliers on board, Xiaomi is also hoping to take advantage of the newly launched PLI scheme that offers incentives on incremental production of smartphones with 2020 as the base year. Leading consumer electronics firm Xiaomi has enlisted three original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to boost its supply of smartphones and smart televisions (TVs) in India. The Chinese major will now have three additional plants to feed local demand that has grown rapidly after the lockdown in mid-2020. Xiaomi, that leads in both the smartphone and smart TV markets in India, has partnered two Chinese OEMs — BYD Electronic Company and DBG Technology — for smartphone manufacturing here.

Imposing more and more tax in the form of cess as oil price eased, Centre gradually began earning more fuel revenue than all states put together. Illustration: Uttam Ghosh/ Rediff.com Consumers are paying an exorbitant 180 per cent tax on petrol, and 140 per cent on diesel in Delhi and in most other towns in India. Little wonder then that the central government expects a staggering Rs 3.46 trillion by levying excise duties on retail sale of the two fuels this year, and Rs 3.2 trillion the next. States would generally have had reason to cheer, as they command a 41 per cent share in Centre’s tax revenues. But as the Centre has raised excise duties in the form of “cess,” the revenue proceeds are by nature not shareable with states. Rather, the Centre has been raising cess, and cutting basic excise duties on petrol and diesel for a long time now. For most of 2016-17, some 56 per cent of excise duty on petrol was levied as cess, revenue from which the Centre kept for ... » Learn More about High fuel prices: Is Modi govt actually ‘cheating’ the states?
