The Biden administration has indicated that it is still undecided on ending the Trump-era ban on issuing new H-1B visas, with the Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas asserting that the US government's top priority is the acute needs of individuals fleeing persecution. Illustration: Uttam Ghosh/ Rediff.com The H-1B visa, the most sought after among Indian IT professionals, is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise. Technology companies depend on it to hire tens of thousands of employees each year from countries like India and China. In January, then-President Donald Trump had extended the ban on issuing new H-1B visas till March 31, arguing that the country is having a very high unemployment rate and the US cannot afford to have more foreign workers.

Tube Investments of India Ltd. (TII) is adopting a three- pronged strategy to insulate itself from the cyclical nature of the auto sector. “We want to reduce our dependence on auto because being an auto-component supplier, we feel there are two challenges to it,” said Vellayan Subbiah, MD. “One, it is very capital intensive and two, it is very cyclical and cyclicality does not create an ability to generate consistent and constant cash flows.” The Murugappa Group firm has identified three growth engines. TI-1 refers to the existing divisions, TI-2 to a venture capital-led approach to growth such as expansion into optic lenses and electric three-wheelers and TI-3, growth through acquisitions such as CG Power. According to him, TI-1, which are organic businesses, might grow 6%- 8% and it was not fair to put too much pressure on them. TI-2 is ‘yet to become operational’ and TI-3 will kick in with the CG Power numbers next year.

Beside a crackling bonfire under a starlit sky, listening to the orchestra of the cicadas and the gurgle of the forest stream, one couldn’t possibly want anything more from life. Except, perhaps, a hot tub, WiFi, and a soft bed with sweet smelling sheets, and not to mention soul-satisfying food. Luxury, even in the middle of a jungle, is not too much to ask for.

fuel consumption is likely to rise nearly 10 per cent in the fiscal year beginning April 1, as a reflating economy drives petrol and diesel demand, according to Oil Ministry 's projections. Petroleum product consumption in 2021-22 could hit 215.24 million tonnes, compared to the revised estimate of 195.94 million tonnes consumption of the current fiscal year ending March 31, the ministry's Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell ( PPAC ) said. This will be the fastest pace of fuel product consumption in six years. As the economy rebounds from its worst contraction on record and industrial activity picks up, fuel consumption is projected to rise. An over two-month-long lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic had shrunk demand to less than half as most vehicles went off roads, trains stopped plying and airlines halted operations. The reopening of the economy has brought demand back but diesel - the most consumed fuel in the country - is yet to reach ... » Learn More about India’s fuel demand to rebound in 2021-22 with 10% growth
