London-based billionaires Hindujas said on Monday that they would make more investments worth billions in India as the policy measures initiated by the Modi government are creating a business-friendly environment in the country.”The foreign investors are engaging the Big four audit companies to get information from India and so far the feedback is that the Modi’s government has taken the right steps in attracting investment since they came to power in May last year,” Business Standard quoted Prakash Hinduja, chairman of the Hinduja group of companies in Europe, as saying.The investment plans from the Hinduja group comes at a time when a majority of Indian companies are following the wait-and-see approach in making new investments.”Modi has created a buzz among foreign investors and they are waiting for the right opportunities to invest in,” he said.After assuming power in May last year, the Modi government has allowed more foreign direct investment (FDI) in defense, resolved retrospective tax issues and has taken measures to attract investments from overseas companies.India’s rank in the “Doing Business Report”, released by the World Bank, has moved up by four notches to 130th position, giving a boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s push to make the country appear in the top 50 list in three years.However, a slowdown in the global economy is restricting many foreign companies to postpone their investments in India.Hinduja said that many Indian companies are not making investments “due to own problems such as high debt.”But, the Hinduja group companies are in the “investment mode,” he said.
Husband allegedly kills his wife over family feud at Maddha Badda in the city on Friday noon.Family sources said the couple — Suma Aktar, 25, and her husband Manir Hossain — had been in loggerheads over family feud triggered by conjugal dispute.As a sequel of the feud, they locked in an altercation at noon.At one stage, locals rushed to their house after hearing the scream of Suma and found the couple lying in a pool of blood on the floor.Later, they took the couple to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) when doctors declared Suma dead.Manir might have strangulated Suma and later tried to kill himself as injury marks were found at his hand and throat, said DMCH police camp in-charge sub-inspector Bacchu Miah.Manir was admitted to the hospital under police custody, the SI added.
Popular on Variety Smart speaker maker Sonos has hired former Tribune exec Eddie Lazarus as its new chief legal officer. Lazarus will be in charge of all legal, regulatory, compliance and SEC reporting issues, among other things.Prior to joining Sonos, Lazarus worked as general counsel and chief strategy officer for Tribune Media. Before that, he was chief of staff to then-FCC chairman Julius Genachowski.“As we continue to grow as a public company, Eddie adds an important strategic voice to our leadership team at Sonos,” said CEO Patrick Spence in a statement. “His broad experience in legal and government affairs combined with deep expertise in business strategy will be essential as we continue to expand into new markets and categories, and reach more listeners throughout the world.”“Over the years, Sonos has built an impressive culture of innovation that is positioned for great success over the long-term,” added Lazarus. “I’m excited to join the Sonos team as it continues to invent terrific products and build a business that inspires the world to listen better.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The company went public earlier this year, and finished off a better-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter in November. However, like much of the consumer electronics industry, Sonos is also threatened by the Trump administration’s continued trade dispute with China. Having someone with government experience could help the company as it aims to push against tariffs on its China-made speakers.What’s more, Sonos has long used its extensive patent portfolio as a bargaining chip as it aims to compete with much bigger players like Amazon, Apple and Google. The company won a lawsuit against Denon earlier this year, and executives have said in the past that its patents have helped to get companies like Google and Amazon to agree to port their assistants to speakers made by the company. “It helps level the playing field,” said Sonos CEO Patrick Spence about the company’s patent portfolio in an interview with Variety earlier this year.Lazarus will officially be joining Sonos at the beginning of 2019. He will be based in Santa Barbara, Calif., and report directly to Spence.
Kolkata: The biggest challenge before India is its unequal development of the country and the only way it can be addressed is by promoting equilibrium in society, Piyush Goyal, Union minister for Railways, Coal, Finance & Corporate Affairs, said on Monday.”Mutual trust and consensus is a key area for ensuring success of GST in a federal structure like India”, he said.Speaking at an exclusive interactive session organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce at a city hotel, Goyal elaborated on the “Vision for 2022” for India and the role that all sections of the society, including industry and industry associations, can play in fructifying the objective of attaining development for all. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedGoyal felt that the government and industry can join hands to effectively reach out to the developmental needs of the bottom of the pyramid through meaningful and well strategised CSR initiatives, in particular for the 115 identified aspirational districts of India.He mentioned that though India has made rapid strides in many sectors post-independence, significant room for progress still remains.He justified the fact that one single uniform GST tax rate is not tenable for India, as it would nullify the very concept of progressive taxation and the tenets of equitable distribution of income. Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJPFocussing on the rapid development witnessed in India over the past 4 years of the Modi regime, Goyal termed the single most important factor of change as the “change in mindset,” which has led to monumental changes in infrastructure, connectivity, macro economy and human capital development in the country, to name a few.He spoke on the important changes being brought about in energy efficiency, distribution and transmission in the power sector in India. He spoke of the government’s commitment to provide rural electrification and ensure availability of LPG and subsequently solar-powered cookers for all households in the country, including the remotest corners.Goyal reiterated that augmented MSP for farm produce would not impact the fiscal deficit, as defaults on loans would have directly led to increased NPAs and affected billions of people engaged in farming in the country.Shashwat Goenka, president, Indian Chamber of Commerce, gave the welcome address, calling Goyal a “thought provoking and dynamic leader”.Rudra Chatterjee, senior vice-president, Indian Chamber of Commerce, offered the formal vote of thanks.
