Surat, not Kolkata, is the new hub for shell companies: Report

Surat has replaced Kolkata to become the new hub for shell companies. According to the new list of shell companies by the I-T department, a majority of the firms are Surat-based, reports The Business Standard.

Most of the companies were based in Kolkata in the first list by the I-T Department.

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs recently shared data of 5,800 shell firms that made Rs 17,000 crore of suspicious deposits by privately held companies.

In the new list released by the I-T department, more than 80 percent of the 2,138 shell companies are from Surat. These collectively deposited at least Rs 5,000 crore during the demonetisation period.

In the first list, I-T department had named 16,000 shell firms, which were Kolkata-based from 2011-2015.

This is today's news-
India-led solar alliance to add 1,000GW of energy by 2030

We import solar cells mainly from China. India produced solar cells are highly uneconomical.
After installation, solar cells require very little maintainance - just one or two persons to clean the dust on cells.

So compared to coal mines and coal power, solar power in India can create very little number of jobs.

Let us look at US - it faced tremendous criticism from green activists for fracking process used to extract shell gas as this process contaminates underground water and damages soil and environment.

But US ignored all criticisms as shell energy can give great boost to it's economy. Now US is not only self dependent on energy - it became an energy exporter and energy is now one of the main job creater in US.

I think you missed another one - the arrival of robotics. Most of the routine jobs will go to robotics and automation , only highly creative jobs for few will remain. Most people will have no jobs - and that is also within next 10 years.

Currently in our soceity - our respect, marriageability, social hierarchy - everything is dependent on our income potentiality . If large number of people have no jobs to do and just dependent on Government doles - the social norms and soceity itself will completely change.

Saudi Arabia fuel economy will go to dust - there is no confusion about that.

Regarding foods - I think gradually we will move towards organic foods. Global population is ageing and in some countries already starting to decline. As population ages and declines, it consumes less food so we don't need to produce more and more food. So I think genetically modified and more productive seeds will loose attraction unless it creates special nutritional value.

Already a term called " peak farmland " is becomming popular and discussed worldwide.

Mitsubishi Chemicals to invest Rs 5,000 cr in textile plant in Bengal: Dr Amit Mitra



এডিনবরা: রাজ্যের বস্ত্রশিল্পে এবার বিনিয়োগ আসছে মিৎসুবিশির হাত ধরে।
মঙ্গলবার এডিনবরা রওনা হওয়ার আগে লন্ডনে মুখ্যমন্ত্রী মমতা বন্দ্যোপাধ্যায় এবং মুখ্যসচিব মলয় দে-র সঙ্গে বৈঠক করেন শিল্পপতি পূর্ণেন্দু চট্টোপাধ্যায়। তিনি আশ্বাস দিয়েছেন, এ বার রাজ্যে পলিয়েস্টার ফ্যাব্রিক তৈরি করবে মিৎসুবিশি। এর জন্য ৫ হাজার কোটি টাকা বিনিয়োগ করবে তারা। ফলে ৫০ হাজার থেকে ১ লক্ষ কর্মসংস্থান তৈরি হবে।
শিল্পপতি পূর্ণেন্দু চট্টোপাধ্যায়ের মিৎসুবিশি কেমিক্যাল কর্পোরেশন ইন্ডিয়া এই প্রথম একটি বাইপ্রডোক্ট তৈরি করবে। নাম পিটিএ অর্থাৎ পিউরিফায়েড টেরিপ্যাথিলিক অ্যাসিড। এই বাইপ্রোডাক্ট থেকেই পলিয়েস্টার ফ্যাব্রিক তৈরি করা যাবে। লন্ডনে মুখ্যমন্ত্রী মমতা বন্দ্যোপাধ্যায়ের সঙ্গে বৈঠক হয় পূর্ণেন্দু চট্টোপাধ্যায়ের।
এতদিন রাজ্যে এধরনের ফ্যাব্রিক তৈরি হত না। মিৎসুবিসি তা তৈরি করা শুরু করলে বাংলাদেশে রফতানিও বিপুল বাড়বে বলে আশাবাদী শিল্পমন্ত্রী। মঙ্গলবার রাতে লন্ডনে বৈঠক সেরে ট্রেনে করে এডিনবরার উদ্দেশে রওনা দেন মুখ্যমন্ত্রী।
বৃহস্পতিবার এডিনবরায় বসছে রাজ্যের বাণিজ্য সম্মেলন। তার আগে মিৎসুবিসির এই বিনিয়োগের আশ্বাস রাজ্যের বাড়তি পাওনা বলেই মনে করছে শিল্পমহলের একাংশ।

Fish from Bengal on high international demand




Kolkata, Nov 16 (UNI) Fish from Bengal is gradually acquiring high demand, both in India and internationally.

This became evident at the recent World Food India international exhibition at New Delhi too, where various deals were clinched by State Government organisations like State Fisheries Development Corporation (SFDC) and others.

Government organisations of different states are also setting up agreements with SFDC for acquiring expertise in cultivating fishes in demand in those states, as well as buying hatchlings from SFDC.

Internationally, fish export from Bengal is making a lot of progress. There is high demand for frozen and sun-dried fish from Bengal in Italy. Shrimps like black tiger shrimp, monodon and vannamei are in high demand in China.

SFDC is also opening restaurants in other states. One has already been opened in Noida. Preparations for opening in other cities too, like Delhi are in progress.

To make fish from Bengal fit to international standards, SFDC is acquiring expertise from other countries.

For example, Russia has expressed eagerness in this respect. The corporation has recently opened a few model fish processing units in Purba Medinipur district.

yes arijit, coming across this peak farmland quite a bit.

And yes, though robotics might be a kind of progress, it is kind of worrisome too. Also among the highly educated sections, only the very skillful and talented people will land up with jobs and this too might create a cascade of social evils and problems.

On a serious note, there needs to be a healthy and sustained growth in applications of automation and robotics in businesses, industries and various other walks of life, but under rigid and strictest regulation of Govt. authorities. Nitin Gadkari's opinion on driverless cars is justified upto a generous extent in this regard. Simultaneously, there needs to be an aggressive approach in educating the working lot of this country through vocational training and other programs/platforms about the rising demand and growth of automation in the days ahead, and how the masses can equip/adapt to keep themselves apace, and thus protect themselves from prospective obsolescence and consequential unemployment.

2 rice varieties quietly do a rasogolla

On Tuesday, Kolkata and the rest of Bengal went berserk over their favourite rasogolla bagging the GI tag. Away from the spotlight though, two varieties of home-grown rice too bagged the prestigious stamp that may prove commercially more crucial.
Gobindobhog and Tulaipanji, two varieties of aromatic rice — one from south Bengal and the other from north — were quietly granted the GI certificate on October 24. A GI is primarily an agricultural, natural or a manufactured product (handicrafts and industrial goods) originating from a definite geographical territory. The tag ensures none other than those authorised are allowed to use the product name.

The coveted tag for the two rice varieties could potentially open up new export opportunities for the state. Gobindobhog is currently exported in small quantities to UAE, the UK and the US where it is consumed by non-resident Bengalis.
Gobindobhog, that was originally cultivated in Burdwan's Raina and Khandoghosh and is now grown in seven more districts, has been a favourite in Bengali homes for generations and offered to both guests and Gods. From plain bhaat to bhog or khichuri to payesh, Gobindobhog clearly scores over the fancied Basmati in Bengal's homes. The rice variety derives its name from Lord Krishna to whom the rice was offered dur-ing religious ceremonies.
Tulaipanji, on the other hand, has been popular in only pockets of the state and came into prominence only in recent years with the government undertaking its promotion.

NW-I development to help revitalise two HDPE shipyards

The ambitious National Waterways-I between Haldia and Allahabad could augur well for fortunes of the two non-functional shipyards of Hooghly Dock and Port Engineers (HDPE), as well as boost investment in West Bengal's shipping sector.

Cochin Shipyard Ltd has shown interest in reviving the two shipyards at Salkia and Nazirgunge, among the oldest in the country.

I think, the NW-I along with upcoming ports of tajpur and sagar will usher a maritime revolution in West Bengal and entire eastern India.

US-based Ebix Inc has picked up a 50% stake in information technology-enabled services provider Vara United in a deal that values the Kolkata company at about Rs 306 crore ($46 million).

According to the terms of the transaction, Ebix will infuse the cash into Vara Technologies' subsidiary, Vara United Private Limited, through the subscription of newly issued shares, which will see the Atlanta-based company, through its Indian subsidiary Ebix Software India, hold a 50% stake in a new joint venture entity branded VARAEbix.
