Integrated Reporting – Financial, Technical, Sustainability
January16, 2019 (C) Ravinder Singh progressindia2015@gmail.com

Objective of the Integrated Reporting Standards Prescribed by SEBI for Corporates is to create Transparent Functioning, Level Operating Conditions, Healthy Competition and Sharing of Knowledge with objectives of making Indian Companies Globally Competitive, Create Intellectual Property mainly ‘Patents’ – Sustainable Development, Clean Environment and Economic Prosperity for Shareholders, Workers, Investors and People.

Yesterday TOI reported India to have $46.3Trillion economy by 2030 compared to $31 Trillion for USA. India depends almost entirely on Fortune-IN 500 Companies holding $4000b assets for Economic Prosperity for 1300m-1500m Indians.

Though companies had adopted Integrated Reporting on directions of SEBIbut it had not TRANSLATED into ‘Globally Competitive Indian Industry’ – actually performance of our Companies is declining – Dividend to Shareholders is just $10b for $4000b Assets.

Working at BST in 1974 – 100% American Factory – Largest in North India I was inventing, was member of British Council and American Center in 1977 was accessing Fortune and other Business Magazines – Engineering, Handbooks and Annual Reports of Companies was offering Technologies and Innovative Projects to Indian & Foreign companies.

Garland Canal Project was shelved on the basis of few pages of ‘Hand Written Notes’ to PM in 1980 – was reduced one liner in 2003 – ‘Stupid idea of River Linking is on for 4 decades – Instead of Transporting 50 Billion Cubic Meters of Water – Why Don’t We Transport 30 million tones of Food-grains required by South India?’

SEBI had failed to provide ‘LEVEL WORKING CONDITIONS FOR COMPETITING COMPANIES’ – Companies may be Complying with ‘RULES’ but DISCOLSURES ARE INADEQUATE i.e. Reading SEC filing I get to know the Financial & Technical INSIGHT of the Company like PETROBRAS – but getting nothing in case of RIL.  

US Broke the Single Product MONOPOLY of Standard Oil, US Steel, American Tobacco, ATT etc

ü  SEBI task is easier – Breakdown MULTI-Product Companies in to SINGLE PRODUCT to be EFFICIENT & SMART COMPANIES, Create Level FINANCIAL Operating Conditions.

ü  Compulsory TECHNOLOGY & R&D Reporting – Appointment of Chief Tech Officers.

ü  Easier TAKEOVER Code by RIVAL Indian & Foreign Companies.

Thailand deploy rainmaking planes

Thailand is set to deploy rainmaking planes to seed clouds in an effort to tackle the increasing levels of pollution that has choked the capital in recent weeks. The weather modification technique involves dispersing chemicals into the air to aid cloud condensation, which should in theory result in rain.
The Pollution Control Department told reporters that the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation expects the rainmaking to be done tomorrow, but it depends on wind and humidity levels.
Reasons for the persistent smog include combustion exhaust from Bangkok’s traffic-strewn roads, the burning of fields from farmers outside the city, and pollutants from factories. Greenpeace today said that Bangkok is currently the 10th most polluted in the world. Public discontent has surfaced on Thai social media, with pollution-related hashtags trending.
Air Visual, an independent online air quality index (AQI) monitor, pegged Bangkok at unhealthy levels measuring 156 AQI today. However, the Pollution Department played down the dangers of the persistent haze. It said that Bangkok’s particulate matter (PM) figure is high but it is not a crisis yet.
Thailand is set to deploy rainmaking planes to seed clouds in an effort to tackle the pall of pollution that has shrouded the capital in recent weeks as an experimental basis.

AIMA – St Gallen Symposium Session

Dear Mr Sagar,
AIMA – St Gallen Symposium Session
on
Capital for Purpose
22nd January 2019 (Tuesday) : AIMA, Lajpat Nagar – New Delhi

Capital, as defined by economists, has been applied to various purposes for the past four hundred years. It has served as the foundation for many of humankind’s most extraordinary achievements, including economic prosperity and social improvements. Thanks in part to capital, today’s society enjoys technological and medical progress, as well as declining poverty and hunger. Yet, the world still faces complex challenges and is constantly changing. The use of capital, too, must be adapted to new factors such as climate change and the cultural shifts brought by millennials. In this context, individuals, civil society, businesses and governments may recalibrate the purposes for which capital is used in an effort to mitigate unwanted externalities. Focusing capital on long-term purposes has the potential to address many of today’s challenges, from data privacy scandals to the calamity of plastic waste. The time has come to counter excessive short-termism and start doing business as unusual.
All India Management Association and St. Gallen Symposium, are jointly organizing a session on Capital with Purpose on 22nd January 2019, Tuesday at
AIMA,15, Link Road, Lajpat Nagar-IIINew Delhi – 110024.

Bangladesh’s Md Dulal Hossain and Lucknow’s Rishi Kumar took the opening round honours at the PGTI’s Final Qualifying Stage for the 2019 season as both golfers shot scores of one-under-71 for the joint lead at the Kensville Golf & Country Club near Ahmedabad.
While Md Dulal Hossain sank three birdies at the cost of two bogeys, Rishi Kumar produced two birdies in exchange for one bogey on an extremely windy day.
Dulal’s three birdies came as a result of conversions from a range of five to nine feet.
Dulal said, “I struck the ball really well despite the tough conditions. My putting was also decent but I need to further improve on it. I didn’t have a great season on the PGTI last year as I missed a lot of cuts. But I feel my game is now on the upswing and a good performance this week will help me start the season with a new lease of confidence.”
Chandigarh teenager Aadil Bedi, who recently qualified for the Asian Tour, was placed tied third at even-par-72. He shared third place with two other Chandigarh golfers, Gurbaaz Mann and Rajinder, as well as Lucknow’s Vijay Kumar and Gurugram’s Priyanshu Singh.
