BigBasket is bullying dailybasket.com with cease and desist letter

bigbasket vs dailybasket

Dailybasket is a grocery startup functioning in coimbatore and has received a cease and desist order from bigbasket for doing grocery & having basket in their name.

Dailybasket's response

We (dailybasket.com) are a tiny online/offline grocery startup currently only serving in Coimbatore. We recently received a cease and desist letter from BigBasket to close down our operations and hand over our domains(ie, our business) to them because we have 'basket' in our brand and we also sell groceries online.

We started our operations in August of 2020. Our plan is to set up a string of mini supermarkets throughout Coimbatore and make them act as delivery hubs for our online delivery business. Currently, we operate one warehouse and about to open a mini-store in coming February 25th.

Though we have a word 'basket' in our brand and we do deliver online groceries, it doesn't mean we copied their trademarks or unethically copied their website & apps. We never misuse BigBasket's brand in any way as they claimed in the cease and desist letter. That's a blatant lie. This is our attempt to debunk their claims. Please read on BigBasket is bullying dailybasket with cease and desist letter

ஸ்மார்ட் சிட்டியில் ‘ஸ்மார்ட்’ இல்லை

பொதுச்செயலாளர் ஈஸ்வரன் கூறியதாவது: தொழில் மண்டலமான கோவை பகுதி தற்போது சரிவை சந்தித்து வருகிறது. கடந்த 4 ஆண்டுகளாகவே கோவையை சுற்றியிருக்கிற பல தொழிற்சாலைகள் மூடப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இந்த தொழிற்சாலைகளை நம்பியிருக்கும் லட்சக்கணக்கான தொழிலாளர்கள் வேலையிழந்து வருகின்றனர். இதை பற்றி மத்திய மாநில அரசுகள் கவலைப்படாமல் இருக்கின்றனர். கோவை மாநகரத்தில் நிலவும் போக்குவரத்து நெரிசலை சரிசெய்வதற்கான உடனடி திட்டங்கள் எதுவும் அரசாங்கத்திடம் இல்லை. மிகவும் சிரமப்படுகிறோம் போக்குவரத்து நெரிசலை குறைக்க நடவடிக்கை எடுங்கள் என்று அரசிடம் கோரிக்கை வைத்தால் 10 ஆண்டுகள் கழித்து வருகிற மெட்ரோ ரயிலை பற்றி அரசாங்கம் பேசி வருகிறது. மெட்ரோ திட்டத்தை செயல்படுத்துவோம் என்ற சொன்னவுடனே மெட்ரோ ரெயில் வந்துவிடுமா??,
இதை உடனடியாக செய்ய அரசு நடவடிக்கை எடுத்தாலும் செய்து முடிக்க 10 ஆண்டுகளாவது ஆகும். அவினாசி சாலை முழுவதும் ஒரு உயர்மட்ட பாலத்தை அமைத்தால் போக்குவரத்து நெரிசல் குறையும். விமான நிலையத்தை விரிவாக்காமல், துபாய் போன்ற நாடுகளுக்கு விமான சேவை துவங்காமல் தொழிற்துறை வளர்ச்சியை உறுதிசெய்ய முடியாது. கோவை மாநகரம் ஸ்மார்ட் சிட்டி என்று அறிவிக்கப்பட்டு ஐந்து ஆண்டுகள் ஆகிவிட்டது. ஆனால் கோவையில் எந்த ஸ்மார்ட்டும் இல்லை. ஐந்து ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு இருந்ததை விட இன்று அனைத்து மோசமாகியுள்ளது.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will visit Tamil Nadu and Puducherry on 25th February 2021. At around 11:30 AM, Prime Minister will inaugurate and lay the foundation stone of various development initiatives in Puducherry. At around 4 PM, Prime Minister will dedicate to the nation and lay the foundation stone of multiple infrastructure projects worth over Rs 12400 crores in Coimbatore.

PM in Tamil Nadu

Prime Minister will dedicate to the nation the Neyveli New Thermal Power Project. It is a lignite based power plant designed for power generation capacity of 1000 MW, and has two units of 500 MW capacity each. Built at a cost of about Rs 8000 crore, the pit head power plant will utilise lignite as fuel from the existing mines of Neyveli, which have sufficient lignite reserves for meeting the lifetime requirement of the project. The Plant has been designed for 100% Ash utilization. The power generated would benefit Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Puducherry, with Tamil Nadu having the major share of about 65%.

Prime Minister will also dedicate to the nation the 709 MW Solar Power Project of NLCIL, established over an area of about 2670 acres of land across the districts of Tirunelveli, Tuticorin, Ramanathapuram and Virudhunagar. The project has been set up at a cost of over Rs 3000 crore.

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the extension, renovation and modernisation of Lower Bhavani Project System. The Bhavanisagar dam and the canal systems were completed in the year 1955. The Lower Bhavani System comprises Lower Bhavani Project Canal System, Arakankottai & Thadapalli Channels, and Kalingarayan Channel. It irrigates over 2 lakh acres of land in Erode, Tiruppur and Karur districts. The extension, renovation and modernisation of Lower Bhavani System has been taken up at a cost of Rs. 934 crore under NABARD Infrastructure Development Assistance. The main objective is to rehabilitate the existing irrigation structures in the system and increase the efficiency of the canals. Apart from lining of the canals, repair and reconstruction of 824 sluices, 176 drainages and 32 bridges will also be taken up.

Prime Minister will inaugurate the 8-laning of Korampallam Bridge and Rail Over Bridge (ROB) at V.O.Chidambaranar Port. It is one of the Major Ports in India. At present, 76% of the cargo is transported through road from/to the Port using the existing Korampallam bridge, which was constructed in early 1964 with a 14m wide carriageway. An average of about 3000 heavy loaded cargo trucks move daily over this bridge, creating heavy congestion over the road and consequent delays and increase in turnaround time. In order to provide seamless evacuation of cargo and to avoid traffic congestion in the port area, the project of 8-laning of the existing Korampallam bridge and Rail Over bridge has been implemented. It involves widening on either side of the bridge and adding two lanes (8.5m) on either side, along with widening the existing bituminous road on either side from TTPS Circle to City Link Circle. Constructed at a cost of about Rs. 42 crore, the project has been implemented with funding support under the Sagarmala programme.

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for design, supply, installation and commissioning of a 5MW grid connected ground based solar power plant at V.O.Chidambaranar Port. The project, to be set up at an estimated cost of about Rs 20 crore, will generate over 80 lakh units (KWH) per annum, meeting 56% of the total energy consumption of the Port, thereby helping reduce carbon footprint of port operations.

With an aim to boost ease of living, Prime Minister will inaugurate the tenements constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) scheme. Built by the Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board, these include 1280 tenements at Veerapandi, Tiruppur; 1248 tenements at Thirukumaran Nagar, Tiruppur; 1088 tenements at Rajakkur Phase-II in Madurai and 528 tenements at Irungalur in Trichy. These tenements have been constructed at a cost of over Rs 330 crore. Each of these tenements, to be allotted to urban poor/slum dwellers, has a plinth area of 400 sq.feet and has been provided with a multipurpose hall, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and toilet. Black top road, streets lights, sewage treatment plant and social amenities like ration shop, anganwadi centre, library and shops have also been provided.

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for development of Integrated Command and Control Centers (ICCC) in nine Smart Cities including Coimbatore, Madurai, Salem, Thanjavur, Vellore, Tiruchirappalli, Tiruppur, Tirunelveli and Thoothukudi. These ICCCs would be developed at a cost of about Rs 107 crore, and would act as a 24x7 support system, providing real time smart solutions for quicker services, with the aim of integrating essential government services and enabling data based decision making.


Only Integrated Command and Control Centres (ICCC) in Coimbatore, Other than that Nothing for CBE Buddy...

Coimbatore, The City That Entrepreneurs Have Built
1158414


If there is one town in India that is atmanirbhar when it comes to ‘development’ and ‘progress’, it is Coimbatore, a small town nestled amidst the Western Ghats.

It is also a town where private enterprise rules the roost and drives the growth and prosperity of the ‘Manchester of the East’ – and was home to the country’s first textile plant set up by the British.

When most towns cry for government attention, private sector initiative has turned Coimbatore into an entrepreneurial hub that has built itself as a modern city – own hospitals, educational institutions and even critical infrastructure.

Coimbatoreans even got together and built an IAS coaching centre run free of cost by Prof Kanakaraj as city elders thought its children must join bureaucracy and police. In no time, AC classrooms, library, and cyber centre were built and handed over to Prof Kanakaraj. Every year, some 5 to 10 from the centre enter the civil services.

Coimbatore and its neighbourhood are today important manufacturing hubs – making from pins to parts of aircraft being used by Boeing, automobile components, and it is the country’s biggest agricultural pump sets manufacturing centre.

Moreover, the salubrious climate, enchanting environment, and character of Coimbatore encourages entrepreneurship like no other city.

“If you come here with a suitcase and an idea, Coimbatore and Coimbatoreans will conspire to make you succeed,” asserts Col. (Retd) T Sreedharan, who settled into the real estate business after retiring from the army.

“My own business rivals mentored me,” Col Sreedharan recalled in a conversation with Tricity Scoop.

Now, 65 years young, Col Sreedharan is one of the most sought-after lifestyle product innovators and all his projects – under the Serene Living brand are sold out. He is also called on by the union government for his expertise.

Take, for example, a Senior Executive, robbed of all perks and salary in a flash, doggedly pursued manufacturing and today has a global client list.

“It was as if my life was snatched away from me in one go,” M Kandaswami, a mechanical engineer who now owns Anandha Fabrications (CBE) Pvt. Ltd said recalling the day in 1983 when Everest Engineering Works where he was working shut down. His car, house, salary vanished the next day and he was on the streets.

He borrowed the bicycle of the company gardener and set off with two helpers to launch his own company –Anandha – and took up the odd contract jobs for other manufacturing firms. Today the Robot Raisers and Robot bases he manufactures are helping roll out dream cars from the assembly lines of the automobile majors like – Tata, Ford, Volkswagen.

Yes, he has an office in the city of cars – Detroit – in the US that his son manages. “This was possible with generous help in tips and connections offered by the entrepreneurial class,” Kandaswami said.

Collectively, the entrepreneurs are a bigger force.

This is why, when the small Industries body – CODISSIA (Coimbatore District Small Industries Association), wanted a modern exhibition grounds to mount their trade shows for foreign buyers here, built its own, with its own money.

“With no help forthcoming from the government, the 1450 odd members pooled their resources, bought land at market price and told the architect – “It must be the best”.

“Yes, we can do it and better than the best in the world,” is the spirit that is so commonly unique to the industrious and innovative Coimbatoreans – who used to and still use the Japanese formula – copy and innovate.

The industrial history of the city is replete with instances of factory owners importing machines, ripping them apart, and fabricating their own, after necessary modifications.

It is this same spirit, so unique to its citizens, most of whom migrated from other parts in South India, that has turned this landlocked region with no natural resources or raw materials into a manufacturing centre of repute and acquired enough economic clout in Tamil Nadu and commands the attention of the political class.

But, to date, Coimbatoreans bemoan neglect of the region and lament the absence of major government investments.

Prof P Kanagaraj of the Government Arts College explains that there is a feeling that Coimbatore is rich, industrious, and can manage on its own, and perhaps this is why government focus is elsewhere.

One of the fastest growing centers of economic activity, Coimbatore leads the country in the manufacturing of textiles, textiles machinery, castings, pump sets and poultry products and has a sizable presence in industries like paper, jewellery, and auto components. Coimbatore region contributes more than Rs 3,500 crore per annum in taxes to State and Central governments and earns more than Rs 25,000 crore worth of foreign exchange.
