Pvt Ltd More Top NewsPublished: July 11 2014 1:09 am Related News By:Balvinder Kalsi I congratulate the finance minister for presenting a balanced realistic and growth-oriented Budget In my view the key message of this Budget lies not in its many specific announcements but in the overall signals it sends of the government’s intention that is to boost economic growth In the last few years falling domestic investment has been a major concern and I expect that trend to be reversed I welcome the higher public expenditure outlay since that is likely to fuel domestic demand and investment If we can achieve a sustained 7-8 per cent growth over the next 3-4 years while at the same time stay on top of our fiscal deficit target and control inflation I believe India will once again be a global economic success story In particular I am encouraged by the strong emphasis laid on education and skill development since people remain our country’s and also a company such as DuPont’s biggest asset and an investment in enhancing education and skills will go a long way in improving employability and ensuring not just economic growth but also economic development I particularly welcome the major thrust this Budget seems to have put on increasing investments in agriculture and improving agriculture productivity especially the openness towards “new technology” that will help increase farm yields Another sector that caught my attention in the Budget announcement is the focus on renewable energy sector especially solar energy projects with a $833 million investment in solar power projects The best part of this Budget is that there is nothing bad about it All in all this budget gets a “thumbs up” from me The writer is President South Asia & Asean DuPont For all the latest

News New signings Renato Sanches and Wilfried Bony can both expect to feature for Swansea City in their home Premier League game against Newcastle United on Sunday Manager Paul Clement said Ivorian striker Bony who rejoined the Welsh side from Manchester City on transfer deadline day after playing at Stoke City on loan last season was sure to play a part Midfielder Sanches who has joined on loan from Bayern Munich was due to meet his new team mates on Friday after playing for Portugal’s under-21 squad during the international break “He’ll get two training sessions going into the game against Newcastle We’ll check him over when he comes in but I have no reason to believe there are any problems” Clement told reporters “He played 70 minutes the other night for Portugal’s under-21s From the time I knew him he was always in good physical shape and I anticipate him also being involved on Sunday” Swansea pulled off something of a coup in securing Sanches who was part of Portugal’s triumphant Euro 2016 squad and was named as best young player of the tournament after a series of dazzling displays Clement knows the 20-year-old well having worked with him while he was assistant manager at Bayern to Carlo Ancelotti for the first half of last season before being approached for the vacant Swansea job “My initial call went into Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as the CEO of Bayern and I kind of worded it that ‘if you don’t ask you don’t get’” said the manager Clement said Bony who scored 34 goals in 70 appearances for Swansea before being sold to City in 2015 had a point to prove “He wants to play games and he will have the chance to do that here” he said “Wilfried is very focused and has had a really positive influence on the dressing room already He will be involved” For all the

Lanka an estimated 80000 troops Related News President Maithripala Sirisena’s self-imposed 100-day deadline to prove that his government is indeed the promised clean break from the Rajapaksa regime ended on April 23 A day earlier the Sri Lankan police made the high-profile arrest of Basil Rajapaksa former economic development minister and brother of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa on corruption charges Nearly a month ago there was another round of arrests but chances are you did not hear about it Policemen burst into a dubbing studio in Colombo with a search warrant and arrested eight people present — five Tamils and three Sinhalese including studio employees and voice artistes The alleged crime: the studio was dubbing a film being made by a Sri Lankan Tamil Set in the final days of the Sri Lankan war the film tells the story of four real-life people as the LTTE comes apart on the battlefield It is not a documentary Actors play the four characters The film was shot and produced in Tamil Nadu The filmmaker had sent to the Colombo studio seven minutes of footage with army scenes to be dubbed in Sinhalese The police said the film was “defamatory” of the Sri Lankan army containing scenes that projected it as “immoral inhumane and atrocious” The eight people have since been released on “police bail” meaning the police have let them go until investigations are completed A travel ban has been imposed on them Much has changed in Sri Lanka since January yet little has changed because the new government has not yet applied itself to the most difficult issue facing the country None of the promises in the 100-day package relate to Sri Lanka’s Tamil question In fact some such as the electoral reforms presently under discussion may even complicate it Granted a 60-year-old question cannot be settled in 100 days But it cannot be put off forever either The longer it is postponed the sharper post-conflict divisions are likely to get not least because of a militarisation that has become so entrenched that certain arms of the Sri Lankan state as last month’s arrests show still see shadows of the long-gone LTTE everywhere and believe the war unfinished Reversing this is easier said than done In their eagerness to milk the victory over the LTTE for political ends the Rajapaksas built up the military as an instrument of day-to-day governance deeming this necessary to combat the threat that the Tigers were still said to be posing This has given Sri Lanka a huge Sinahlese-only military with no war to fight and no enemies in sight but much self-importance and the constant need to justify its size and existence It means that Tamils remain suspect with incidents like the one at the Colombo studio sharpening the divisions Sirisena did not dissolve parliament and call for fresh elections on the 100th day of his government as he had promised but he is expected to do this soon If Sri Lanka is serious about post-war nation-building a challenge for this government and the one that comes in after the parliamentary elections is to tackle this militarisation as it works towards a political resolution of the Tamil question It would have to start with the size of the military After the first shots fired by Tamil militants in Jaffna in the 1970s the Sri Lankan military grew from a ceremonial force of 30000 to an estimated 300000 men in all three services plus the police force by the end of the war Present force strengths of the army navy and air force are guesstimates based on the contradictory numbers provided by figures in the defence establishment Though no notable hardware acquisitions have been made since the end of the war the defence budget has increased since 2009 mostly to pay out the salaries and pensions of soldiers Shepherded by Gotabaya Rajapaksa defence secretary during brother Mahinda’s presidency it was not long after the war that this large and idle force entered public life and the economy at various levels: in urban development projects especially Colombo’s much admired “beautification”; in education giving military training that was made compulsory for university entrants; the retail trade; agriculture; civil aviation; tourism with several military-run hotels and resorts including one at the site of the LTTE’s last stand in Mullaitivu called Lagoon’s Edge In the Tamil north where its influence extends across all sectors of civilian life the first non-military governor was appointed only after the new government took charge But calls to reduce the military’s presence in the region have not been met Of the army’s 19 divisions 16 are garrisoned in northern and eastern Sri Lanka an estimated 80000 troops The military took thousands of acres of land (separate from the land acquired in the early 1990s some of which was recently returned) to build these camps In addition a plainclothes Civilian Defence Force acts as an intelligence arm for the military It has been suggested that there is no option: southern Sri Lanka just does not have the space for these garrisons But Tamils fear that this entirely Sinhalese force will become a permanent part of the north’s demography altering its ethnic composition to their disadvantage Colombo can scale down the army’s presence in the north the militarisation across the country and the persisting Sinhala triumphalism of the 2009 battlefield victory only by first reducing troop strength Demobilisation if ever considered did not top Rajapaksa post-war priorities But unless the word enters the debate Sri Lanka will find itself with an army that needs to grow in size and influence just to keep its economic and other interests going — and as in Pakistan the interests expanding as its influence grows all in the name of an “enemy” The Rajapaksas had sent out a strong signal with the arrest of Sarath Fonseka the chief who led the army against the LTTE that the military would function purely under their leadership and there was no place for rivals from the defence forces The present government alleged the former first family tried to use the army to mount a coup when it became clear they had been voted out and that the country was saved because the army chief refused True or not a large well-trained standing army with little in its own sphere to keep it busy will remain a temptation for Sri Lanka’s political and military adventurers Locating alternate livelihoods for demobbed soldiers is a challenge even for countries with big economies India and other countries that want Sri Lanka to win the peace must help The Modi government which is trying to revive a comprehensive economic partnership can make this deal more attractive by offering ex-soldiers training and education scholarships in India and by persuading Indian companies with a presence in Sri Lanka to offer job opportunities to them Ultimately demilitarisation is key to addressing the issue of alleged war crimes in a less charged atmosphere It will hasten post-war reconciliation and ensure the country’s political stability Postscript: The eight people who were arrested and provisionally let off are

four-star in Kerala on Sunday resumed vending Indian-made foreign liquor (IMFL) as the new liquor policy of the CPI(M) government kicked in Last month the government had unveiled the new liquor policy which allowed all hotels that were three-star or more to sell IMFL provided they did not violate the recent Supreme Court directive banning liquor vending within 500 metres of highways Excise department sources said 250-odd hotels in Kerala are in the three- and four-star categories but only less than 100 meet the requirement under the Supreme Court directive Of the 81 applications 77 hotels were granted a liquor licence Besides these hotels could sell toddy on their premises under the new liquor policy In many places liquor consumers celebrated the reopening of the bars In Kollam a group of people burst crackers when the bars were opened at 11 am Under the new policy the bars which had to be closed down following the Supreme Court verdict have been given the option to run liquor business from another property within the same taluk In October 2014 the then Congress government announced a new liquor policy which envisaged total prohibition within next one decade Accordingly all 700-odd bar hotels were closed down in April 2015 Then government limited IMFL supply to 30 five-star hotels Later the Congress government allowed the closed down bar hotels to function as beer and wine parlours to cushion the economic impact and loss of jobs from the closure of bars However the citing crisis in the tourism and hospitality sector the present CPM-led

of TCS’ move to merge its Japanese unit with Mitsubishi Corp’s IT arm goes beyond the six-fold increase in the Mumbai-based IT major’s revenues from Japan The deal marks a scale-up for TCS in the second-largest market for software services in the world a market that has traditionally posed high entry barriers for foreign IT firms India’s IT firms have struggled to build scale in Japan an over $100 billion market dominated by homegrown companies and a handful of Chinese outsourcing firms Japan’s IT services market contributes less than 2 per cent to the Indian IT revenues as per Nasscom data More than that the TCS deal in Japan is part of the broader trend of Indian IT firms redirecting their energies in increasing revenue flows from the high-margin developed markets This gains significance considering the need for scale that Indian IT firms clearly lack For instance by end-April last year even as TCS had overtaken Accenture Plc to become the world’s second biggest IT services employer (with nearly 265000 people on its rolls) the Indian IT major’s revenue was less than half that of the Dublin-based technology consulting firm Accenture along with IBM are also far ahead of TCS on another significant aspect — revenue productivity The global annual revenue of Accenture the world’s second biggest technology and consulting firm by sales stood at $28 billion in 2012 over twice what TCS generated IBM from its global technology and business services divisions generated close to $60 billion that year Wipro too has said it has begun to redirect its energies from lower-yielding markets such as the Asia Pacific back to continental Europe as a focus market along with the US and the UK In 2013 the company appointed Ulrich Meister — who led the global system

reported to be in the process of beefing up its sales teams in America and Europe with the focus being on hiring locals in these markets The broader strategy followed by Indian IT in key developed markets in the coming years could decide if they tide over the struggle to move up into the top league After fighting the pricing game at the bottom of the pyramid it is heartening to see all the
