‘US law doesn’t apply here’

Written by Tony Harkén on söndag, 15 juli 2018. Posted in Indien, Artiklar om Indien, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

India’s defense chief resists pressure over S-400 deal with Russia.

American laws are their own matter locally and have nothing to do with India, the country’s defense chief said, refusing to bow to a US sanctions threat over its planned purchase of Russian S-400 air-defense systems.

New Delhi has relayed to Washington that the threat of unilateral US sanctions will not have an impact on its decision on the possible purchase of S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems from Russia.

“We have told the US Congress delegation that this is US law and not a UN law,” India's defense minister Nirmala Sitharaman noted, apparently referring to a US federal bill that was implemented in 2017.

Grant Thornton hjälper indisk by ta sig ur fattigdom genom kvinnligt entreprenörskap

Written by Cecilia Helland on tisdag, 07 februari 2017. Posted in Main 3, Indien, Artiklar om Indien, Main 3, Main 5 - 3st

Den indiska byn Omipper ska med hjälp av revisions- och konsultföretaget Grant Thornton ta sig ur fattigdom.

Som bysponsor genom organisationen Hand in Hands Village Upliftment Programme, som satsar på kvinnligt entreprenörskap, stödjer Grant Thornton arbetet med att utveckla byn.

Omipper ligger i delstaten Tamil Nadu i södra Indien. I dagsläget lever man under svåra förhållanden i byn. Många familjer har inte tillräckligt med mat och vatten, kunskapen om hälsa och sanitet är låg, många barn arbetar istället för att gå i skola, byn är nedgången och det är mycket nedskräpning.

Grant Thorntons bysponsorskapet löper under 24 månader och efter den tiden räknar Hand in Hand med att Omipper är stark nog att stå på egna ben och utvecklas vidare för egen kraft. Byn ska då ha:

  • hundratals kvinnliga företagare som kommer att ha startat företag
  • utökat skolgången för byns barn och ha färre barn som arbetar istället för att gå i skola
  • höjt kunskapsnivån bland byborna genom att de fått tillgång till internet och utbildning kring medborgliga rättigheter
  • bättre möjlighet till sanitets- och hälsoåtgärder i hela samhället
  • etablerat ekologiskt jordbruk
  • etablerat en bykommitté som arbetar med utveckling av byn framåt

Bevisat resultat
- Med ett lyckat avslut för vårt tidigare bysponsorskap i byn Anampakkam vet vi att vårt stöd gör skillnad. Vi vet också att arbetet som Hand in Hand gör är långsiktigt och skapar hållbar utveckling med hänsyn till livet, människorna och miljön, säger Linda Mannerbey, hållbarhetsansvarig på Grant Thornton.

Apple Inc. will begin assembling iPhones in India by the end of April, a regional minister says, heightening its focus on the world’s fastest-growing major smartphone market as growth slows elsewhere.

The U.S. Company has tapped Taiwan’s Wistron Corp. to put together its phones in the tech capital of Bangalore in Karnataka, said Priyank Kharge, the state’s information technology minister. Apple executives met with him in January and confirmed the timeline, he said in an interview.

Millions of Indians will have their taxes cut in half

Written by Tony Harkén on torsdag, 02 februari 2017. Posted in Indien, Artiklar om Indien, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Nearly 20 million Indian middle-class taxpayers will get a 50 percent cut in their income tax, according to the annual budget revealed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

The tax rate for people with income of 250,000 rupees ($3,700) to 500,000 rupees ($7,400) a year, as well as tax for small and medium-sized businesses with annual turnover of up to 500 million rupees ($7.4 million) has been reduced to five percent from the current ten percent.

Those who earn less than 250,000 rupees ($3,700) a year will pay nothing.

The larger incomes of above 500,000 rupees are now assessed a 30 percent tax rate.

We are largely a tax non-compliant society. The predominance of cash in our economy makes it possible for people to evade taxes,” said Jaitley.
