The area under paddy - the biggest foodgrain during the kharif season - was almost 13 per cent lower in the week ended August 5 as compared to the same period last year despite a slight pick-up in rains in the main growing regions, triggering fears of a 10-12 million-tonne drop in final output. Sources said with the peak sowing season for paddy almost coming to an end in the big-growing states, any uptick in coverage from here onwards may not give the desired yields. With 30 per cent of normal average area in which paddy is grown every year remaining unsown till early August, there is a limited chance of a big uptick in output, trade and market sources said.

Bharti Airtel to toll out 5G services this month

By March 2024, all major towns and rural areas in the nation would have access to 5G services thanks to telecom provider Bharti Airtel, said a top corporate executive. Gopal Vittal, managing director and CEO of Bharti Airtel, also said that the current cheap cost of mobile services in India needs to increase. We plan to roll out 5G beginning in August and eventually throughout all of India. We anticipate being able to cover every town and important rural area with 5G by March 2024. In fact, entire plans for the development of the network in 5,000 Indian towns are already in place. In our history, this will be one of our largest rollouts, Vittal stated on the earnings call for the company. Bharti Airtel in the recently-concluded spectrum auction acquired 19,867.8 MHz frequencies by securing a pan-India footprint of 3.5 GHz and 26 GHz bands and select purchase of radiowaves in the low and mid-band spectrum for a total consideration of Rs 43,040 crore. Vittal downplayed the necessity of purchasing premium spectrum in the 700 megahertz band, which requires fewer mobile towers for coverage than other bands that telecom operators currently have, and stated the company's capital spending will stay around the current levels. ''Our competition doesn't have such a massive mid-band spectrum. Do remember that if we did not have this large chunk of the precious mid-band spectrum we would have had no choice but to buy an expensive 700 Mhz spectrum. And once we had purchased it, we would have needed to put powerful radios on this band. According to Vittal, there would have been an increase in carbon emissions in addition to greater costs. 5G spectrum auction bids cross Rs1.50 lakh cr Reliance Jio likely to launch 5G services in India on August 15 Spectrum-5G auction: Govt receives bids worth Rs 1.49-La-Cr

HPCL and Honda collaborate to boost electric mobility

Honda Motor and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) have partnered to set up battery swapping stations for electric vehicles at the state-owned oil firm's petrol pumps. According to a statement released by the state-owned company on Tuesday, HPCL and Honda Power Pack Energy India Pvt Ltd, a division of Honda Motor Co Ltd (Honda), unveiled their first e: swap station at an HPCL gas station in Bengaluru on August 6. With the quick uptake of environmentally friendly electric cars (EVs) powered by electricity-charged batteries, infrastructure is being built nationwide to either provide facilities for charging such vehicles or to replace drained batteries with fully charged ones. Even if filling up with gasoline or diesel is faster, battery swapping provides a speedier option. Customers may swap out their used batteries for fully charged ones at e: swap stations in about two minutes, according to the statement. The Battery-as-a-Service (BaaS) model also enables users to borrow batteries independently of the cars. Giving the battery away reduces the upfront cost of buying an EV. Currently, the swapping station at HPCL's Old Airport Road location will serve e-3 wheelers. The announcement read, In a year, the garden city of Bengaluru will have more than 70 such e: exchange Stations, after which other cities would be taken up. Sandeep Maheshwari, Executive Director - Retail, HPCL, spoke at the event and pledged the company's commitment to hastening India's transition to cleaner energy. With 1,058 EV charging stations at our retail locations around the nation, we are one of the largest charge point operators in the country.

Now NPS subscribers can change invest pattern without approval

National Pension System (NPS) subscribers can now change their investment pattern sans the approval of the nodal office, Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority said in a notification. It has been determined to allow the change in investment choice online, wherein the subscriber can submit the request directly in the Central Recordkeeping Agency login and which has to be authenticated through a one-time password received on the registered mobile or email ID, the authority said. Earlier, subscribers required authorisation from the nodal office for processing the application to change the investment pattern. Once the subscriber opts for investment choice, the accumulated Tier I contributions shall be redeemed and reinvested in the new scheme as per defined process and within specified timelines, the notification said. Keeping this track, all subsequent contributions will be invested as per the new investment pattern, PFRDA said. The subscribers can also revert to the default pattern of investment as per the guidelines, the pension regulator said. Currently, PFRDA permits government subscribers to change asset allocation two times and a year and provident fund once a year. The subscribers associated with state governments and autonomous bodies of state or Centre can also exercise choice of PF and investment pattern, if the respective agencies allow them to.
