Narendra Modi government cuts FY18 gold scheme target by 50%

The government has trimmed by half its target for gold schemes in 2017-18, turning more realistic after struggling to achieve less than 40% of its goal for the current fiscal.

The government is aiming at R5,000 crore from all the schemes — sovereign gold bond, gold monetisation and Indian gold coin — in 2017-18, compared with the budgeted level of R10,000 crore for 2016-17, sources told FE. The fact that the government now estimates only R3,809 crore from these schemes in 2016-17, representing just about 2% of the country’s annual consumption, suggests these are far from being a runaway success even a year and a half after their launch.

Nevertheless, the data showed performance of the schemes witnessed some improvement this fiscal from a year earlier. Even after discounting the fact that the schemes were launched only in November 2015, they had generated just R1,318 crore in the 2015-16 fiscal.

“Such schemes don’t turn into a massive hit overnight. Some teething troubles do persist, especially in the monetisation scheme. Still, there are chances that the budgeted target for 2017-18 will be exceeded, but it’s better to be conservative,” said one of the sources.

The gold schemes were launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in November 2015, as the government wanted to discourage imports of the precious metal and curb their debilitating impact on the trade balance.

Harish Galipelli, head of commodities and currencies at Inditrade Derivatives & Commodities, said chances of the sovereign gold bond picking up in the coming years are brighter than those of the monetisation scheme. “The gold bond is a relatively good instrument, and with growing investor awareness and efforts by the authorities and the banks, it has potential to be a success in the coming years,” he said.

However, to make the gold monetisation scheme a success is a more challenging task, considering that Indians don’t want to part with ancestral jewellery, he said. “(Also) logistics issues at the banks need to be sorted out first,” he added.

Recently, the government launched the seventh tranche of gold bonds, offering a 2.5% annual interest to investors. Applications were accepted from February 27 to March 3, and the bonds will be issued to eligible applicants on March 17. Investors will get the interest semi-annually on the nominal value of investment.

Indian households, together the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tonnes of the precious metal, worth at least $800 billion despite a sharp fall in international prices from their peaks in 2011, according to a study by the London-headquartered World Gold Council (WGC).

The value of the holdings is based on (conservative) international prices, which doesn’t factor in a 10% customs duty. The value would be substantially higher in rupee terms. Coupled with 557.7 tonnes of the central bank’s holdings, gold stocks at most of the known sources in the world’s second-largest consumer would represent around half of its gross domestic product. This means the gold monetisation scheme can be a success if it’s structured in a more lucrative manner to induce households to park their gold in banks.

The country’s gold demand has been shaken a tad after the note ban in November last year, as some customers feared a crackdown on gold holding as well, but long-term prospects remain bright with demand expected to average at 850-950 per annum by 2020, the WGC said. The country’s gold demand touched a seven-year low of 675.5 tonnes in 2016, although a recovery is expected in 2017.

Use the Best Available when it comes to Catalyst Handling

If your business involves the use of catalysts, you do not have to be told the importance of making sure they are handled correctly and safely. Failure to do so not only puts your business and your employees at risk, but it puts the community at risk as well.

Safe handling starts with a first-class catalyst unloading system. Companies like Reactor Services, Inc. have the equipment and skilled people to ensure that the job is done right. With so much at stake when handling products of this nature, it only makes sense to turn the activities over to those who are specialists in the field.

Warehousing is another feature you might want to consider when looking for someone to help with your handling of catalysts. The less you can keep at your own site, the better off you will be. Consequently, warehousing it off site where it will be maintained by those who make their living doing this type of thing will mean less risk on your part.

You may even want to consider a just-in-time delivery service for your catalysts. That way, you only have on hand what is necessary for your immediate use. You will need, however, confidence that the company with which you are dealing is reputable and will be able to get you what you need when you need it.

Companies that handle your warehousing for you will need state of the art tracking equipment. You will want complete control and traceability over your catalysts at all times. This is not a type of material in which even a small amount of inventory loss is considered acceptable.

Another important aspect in storing and warehousing catalysts is the capacity to safely repackage the material for shipping. There may be times when your needs call for the blending of different catalysts. When this is the case, you want to know that everything is being done correctly and that the proper shipping containers are being used to get the product to you with minimal risk.

If you are in the business of operating reactors, you have enough to worry about without being concerned over how your catalysts are handled. Turning this over to a reputable company can relieve a lot of headaches.

‘Ambassador’ went to others due to lack of innovation: Union Minister Giriraj Singh

Union Minister of State for MSME Giriraj Singh today said “lack of innovation” in Hindustan Motors was the reason behind the selling off of the iconic Ambassador car brand to European auto major Peugeot. “Hindustan Motors’ Ambassador went to others due to the lack of innovation,” Singh said at the Bengal Chamber awards for MSME event.

Owners of CK Birla group inked an agreement with Peugeot SA of Europe earlier this month to sell off the Ambassador brand. The manufacturing of Ambassador was discontinued in 2014. Stressing innovation in the field of agriculture and MSME sector, he urged people to come forward to form a policy framework on it.

Singh also highlighted the Centre’s policies in infrastructure sector and raising the limit for collateral free loans among others. Asked about Rajiv Bajaj’s comment that ‘Made in India’ as ‘Mad in India’ after his company faced hurdles in launching new products, the union minister said “One single person does not make India.”


Speaker has all the rights to call the police if there is a disruption: Dr Subramanian Swamy on Tamil Nadu floor test

Subramanian Swami took to Twitter post the Tamil Nadu Assembly “drama” said that Speaker has all the rights to call the police if there is a disruption. On Saturday MLAs in TN Assembly refused to move out after Speaker declared that Chief Minister from AIADMK, E Palaniswami won the trust votes of 122 MLAs out of 235.

In the event of MLAs refusing to move out of the assembly, the Speaker had several options including changing the venue for votes. When the proceeding started this morning, it looked like it would be concluded within no time. But soon, massive fight for secret ballot erupted and MK Stalin was forced evicted followed by the other DMK MLAs. Soon it turned out to be a law and order situation. The Speaker said that the disruption was unacceptable. There was even a clash happened between marshalls and DMK MLAs. DMK MLAs even sat on the Speakers chair. This is the second time that a bedlam has happened in TN Assembly. With the assembly adjourned twice once at 12 pm and again at 1 pm.

Swami tweeted, “The biggest losers in this TN drama will be unpatriotic DMK, corrupt Congress and Xtian converters which had a secret understanding with OPS,”

He said, “Imagine the irony of DMK speaking about others corruption. The world mody corrupt and fascist party is DMK.”

He called the act of DMK as goondaism and criticised the media for not projecting it that way. “As usual media anchors clueless. The core of what happened today in TN Assembly is blatant goondaism of anti national DMK,” he wrote.

“Anchors say President’s Rule will come. Idiots. Bommai judgment bars that. Speaker should take voice now. It will be legal,” said Swami.

He also said that in today’s Assembly’s Confidence Resolution those who vote against Palaniswamy would strengthen 2G Spectrum scamsters of DMK.

Cleaning The Office

The medical office is a place that needs to stay as clean as possible because of the patients who are seen there. Clinic cleaning services are offered by some companies, which is perhaps the best way to get the office in the proper order so that patients and the doctors and staff who work there are protected from viruses that might linger and bacteria in the air and on surfaces.

Image result for Cleaning The Office
One of the things to keep in mind while cleaning a medical office is that gloves need to be worn at all times. You need a pair of gloves that securely fits around the wrist. The material should be rubber as this won’t be as likely to puncture as latex would. Bacteria and other germs can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours at times, so when you’re cleaning, you don’t know what you’re coming in contact with.

Trash that is on the floor should be the first thing that is cleaned. You want to get everything into waste bins as quickly as possible so that the trash in the bins can be removed from the office. If there are containers for needles, then these need to be disposed of in the proper manner instead of being thrown away with the rest of the trash. Some offices have a company that will come to collect the needles and dirty linens so that you don’t have to worry with these areas. When you’re using a new trash bag to pick up trash or to replace one that is removed from a can, make sure that it’s a heavy duty type that won’t rip.

Cleaners that have a disinfectant in them should be used when cleaning surfaces, such as tables and counters. When you clean hardwood or laminate floors, it’s sometimes best to use bleach or at least a cleaner with disinfectant so that all of the germs and bacteria are removed or as much as possible. A steam cleaner is ideal for the carpet as the heat can help to clean the surface better than a typical vacuum cleaner would.
