Introduction

The Contify APIs are used to integrate Market Intelligence into your application. Use our APIs to provide curated intelligence on Competitors, Customers, Prospects, and Industries in the form of press releases, news, investor relations updates, regulatory updates, social media posts, and other marketing collateral hosted on company websites. Content is aggregated from company websites, news publishers, social media, and regulators.

Our APIs are RESTful. Responses are delivered in JSON format. Request an API key to get started with a free trial account.

Authentication

Contify will issue an API Key and App ID to you. Use it to identify and authorize each request. Keep your API key private and never display it publicly.

Access to all API endpoints must be authenticated. You requests should specify the API key, App ID, and response format using an extended header field with the name

Accept: application/json" --header “APPID:$your_id" --header APPSECRET:$your_key
Accept: application/json" --header “APPID:$your_id" --header “APPSECRET:$your_key

The duo were identified as Ashfaqhussain Jakirhussain Shaikh, 34, and Moinuddin Khurshid Pathan, 27. Both are residents of Surat, the Gujarat ATS said. While Shaikh is a medical representative, Pathan is a food delivery boy, the police said. The ATS said that the two were apprehended on the basis of technical and physical surveillance mounted on their family members and acquaintances. The two had approached their family members and acquaintances for “further finances” after they ran out of money, the police said. The primary investigation of the accused persons revealed that they had committed the crime “in retribution to purported statements by the deceased”, the ATS said. In 2015, Tiwari had shot into the limelight after he made controversial remarks about Prophet Mohammad following which several Muslim groups held protests demanding action against him. Six persons, including two Muslim clerics from Bijnor in western U.P., have already been detained in the case.",

The new feature has been added after the US-based ride hailing firm won a bid put out by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited for offering mobility service at 210 metro stations. Additionally, Uber will also get designated pickup spots as well as kiosks/information centre at these stations. Pradeep Parameswaran, president, Uber India and South Asia said, “By launching Public Transport, live transit information about the city’s heartline, the Delhi Metro and the DTC, will be available in the Uber App.” Pointing that the metro network today spans over 377 km with 274 stations covering national capital region, Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC said the initiative will certainly boost first and last mile connectivity solutions for around six million passenger journeys performed in the system daily. Speaking at the event, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, who was in India on a five-day visit, said, India is fundamental to the company’s growth going forward and it will continue to invest in talent here. “...It is among the top 10 markets for us and we continue to believe in and invest in India... Our business here is improving,” he said, adding that “India is core to Uber’s strategy for the next 5-10 years and beyond. India has a scale and India also has the innovative talent here. So it is just not a market that we come into, but it is a market that we build from.”",

Explained Behind move, tussle between firms and Haryana authorities The matter of operation of the Rapid Metro reached the court on September 6, with the Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran and the companies handling the Metro issuing termination notices to each other, alleging “material breaches” in the contract. The court had then directed the firms to continue operations until midnight of September 9 and resolve the dispute by negotiation. On September 20, the court initiated the process of handing the line to DMRC. This deadline was extended to October 23 last week. The takeover has brought the operational Metro network in Delhi-NCR to 389 km, with trains covering 285 stations. Officials said the service will follow the earlier schedule — trains will begin operations at 6 am from Sector 55-56 station, and the last train will depart from the same station at 10 pm. While trains will run at an interval of 4.30 minutes during morning peak hours, the frequency will be 5.15 minutes during evening peak hours. Advertising The service had commenced operations in 2013, with Phase I covering the stretch between Cyber City and Sikanderpur Metro station. Phase 2 was launched four years later, in 2017, and runs between Sikanderpur Metro station and Sector 55-56. With the two phases, the Rapid Metro provides connectivity between Cyber City, which houses several offices as well as restaurants and shops, and Golf Course Road, where several gated condominiums, malls and MNCs are located.",

Advertising Sources said the government has also called leaders of the Naga National Political Groups (NNPG), an umbrella organisation of seven insurgent groups such as NSCN(K) and other factions of NSCN like Unification and Reunification, for the meeting. “The government wants a final solution, and for that it was important to call all groups. This is despite the fact that IM has so far sought to be the only party involved in the talks,’’ a source said. Read | Govt determined to honourably conclude Naga peace talks: Centre’s chief interlocutor Advertising Although there is no official word yet on the signing of the long-awaited Naga peace agreement, Nagaland Governor N Ravi’s statement that the Union government is determined to conclude the peace talks with Naga insurgent groups have given indications of fresh developments. Earlier this week, Ravi said that a mutually agreed draft comprehensive settlement, incorporating all substantive issues and competencies, was ready for signing the final agreement. Explained Momentum gained under Modi, BJP keen on agreement Signing of the Naga peace agreement would be a major achievement for the BJP leadership, as PM Narendra Modi took initiative and the Centre signed a framework agreement on August 3, 2015, to find a solution to the decades-long crisis. Party leaders point out that although ceasefire has been on for 17 years, efforts to get a framework for the agreement were expedited after the Modi government took office in 2014. While the bone of contention between the Centre and IM has been over the outfit’s demand for a separate flag and constitution for Nagaland, sources said NNPG has been far more flexible in its conditions, giving up this demand. Instead, NNPG has demanded that seats in the Assembly be increased from 60 to 90, that the number of members from Nagaland in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha be increased, and that an “Upper House system’’ — with Members of Legislative Council – be introduced in the state. NNPG has also demanded development packages and accommodation for both its leaders and cadres in the government. Kilonser K Chawang, former convener of the ceasefire monitoring committee in IM, however, told The Indian Express over telephone from IM headquarters in Hebron: “There is no question of compromising on a separate flag and constitution. To us, the meeting is not a final meeting if the demands are not met.’’ He also said IM is not looking at abrogating the ceasefire agreement in place. “We are not looking at picking up arms again. But we will continue the talks,’’ he added. A top government source familiar with the development said, “Efforts are still on to bring them (IM) on board with the final draft, as an agreement without it will not make much sense. The government is keen to conclude the agreement soon.” Meanwhile, security across Nagaland has been tightened in light of the impending meeting as tension rises over uncertainty of its outcome. Nagaland Governor Ravi, who is also the Centre’s interlocutor to the Naga peace process, has directed Deputy Commissioners and administrative officers to remain on duty and recalled all police personnel on leave. Nagaland DGP T John Longkumer has issued an order cancelling the police sports meet on account of “exigent and unavoidable circumstances”. Leaders from ruling NDPP said measures have been taken to cover any kind of eventuality. A senior party leader said there is also speculation that the present state government may be asked to step down in order to accommodate leaders of NSCN-IM as well as commanders of other insurgent groups. Advertising In Delhi, ruling BJP is equally concerned about repercussions of any agreement with the Naga rebel groups in neighbouring Manipur, where Ukhrul, Tamenglong and Senapati districts are expected to come under the Territorial Council for Naga-inhabited areas under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution. “The move could trigger violent protests in Manipur. Several civil society groups are opposing this and have already warned against any such move,” a BJP leader said.—inputs from Abhishek Saha, Guwahati",

                    "summary": "Advertising The Supreme Court on Tuesday transferred to itself petitions seeking to make social media platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp more accountable in fighting crime and terror by allowing agencies access to encrypted data, even as the Centre stated that it does not want to invade privacy of citizens. Appearing for the Centre, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told a bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose: “We (government) do not want to invade privacy, but no intermediary can say their platform is so secure that it cannot be used for crime (or) terrorism. If information is required to protect sovereignty of the country and is in national interest, it has to be provided… “A balance has to be struck between national interest, sovereignty, police investigation and individual privacy.” Mehta sought three months for the government to firm up new rules on obligations of intermediaries. The court fixed the matter for further hearing in January 2020. Advertising Earlier, Facebook and other social media platforms had approached the apex court and urged it to transfer to itself four petitions pending before the High Courts of Madras, Bombay and Madhya Pradesh which sought linking social media accounts with Aadhaar number of users. Scope of plea before Madras HC was subsequently expanded during the hearing to consider how to make intermediaries more accountable to the law and order machinery to curb crime, fake news and anti-national activities. When the Facebook plea came up, the Tamil Nadu government had opposed transferring the case and said that the hearing before Madras HC had progressed considerably and urged the top court to let HC decide the matter. On Tuesday, Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for Tamil Nadu, said the state was not opposing the transfer plea any more. Following this, the bench directed that the petitions be transferred from the HCs. Venugopal said, “Intermediaries can’t come into the country, establish their system…and then say…they cannot facilitate decryption. This is an offence under law…. Otherwise they should not come to the country.” He said Section 69 of Information Technology Act, 2000, mandated the authorities to lawfully intercept any information transmitted through any computer resource if it the authorities are “satisfied that it is necessary or expedient so to do in the interest of sovereignty or integrity of India, security of the State…”, etc. The subscriber is bound to extend all facilities and technical assistance to decrypt information if called for, he added. Justice Gupta said that according to the Act, intermediaries are not required to decrypt the information for the government. “My brother (Justice Aniruddha Bose) says that even in the US they are sending it to an outside agency to decrypt the information. You (government) can also have some agency to do encryption.” Justice Bose added, “Let’s say it is like a locked door. You are daring them to open it. The intermediaries are saying open it yourself. Whether they are obliged to give the key to you is the question”. Venugopal said, “Your Lordships may just say that they will have to facilitate and leave it at that. Rest we will ensure they will comply.” Senior Advocate Shyam Divan, appearing for the NGO Internet Freedom Foundation, urged the court not to make any observation on the question of decryption and restrict itself to transferring the petitions for now. Advertising Appearing for Facebook, Advocate Mukul Rohatgi said the matter should be decided in view of privacy ruling in Aadhaar case. “Rules say only if I have the key, I will give the key,” he said, “but I don’t have it. The rules don’t mandate that I must give the key…”",

                    "summary": "The service launch comes after Uber won a public bid to offer its mobility services across 210 DMRC stations. Uber on Tuesday said India is “fundamental” to the ride-hailing firm’s growth strategy. The firm that competes with Ola in the market launched its public transport services in the Capital — a first for Uber in Asia and the ninth city globally. In the next 10 years, the company’s growth will be defined by markets like India, Africa and the Middle-East, said CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. “Profitability metric of our business here (India) is improving. We will continue to remain and invest here,” said Khosrowshahi. The firm’s primary unit, Uber India Systems, reported revenues of Rs 522.41 crore in the year to March 2018, against revenues of Rs 410.71 crore posted in the year-ago period. Profit increased marginally to Rs 26.46 crore in FY18 compared to a profit of Rs 19 crore in FY17, according to documents sourced from business signals platform Tofler. The public transport service, launched in partnership with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), will feature as an option on the Uber app and will allow riders to see the fastest and cheapest routes, real-time schedules as well as departure time for public transportation including the metro, buses and walking directions to and from nearby metro stations and buses (as of now limited to metros, will be extended to buses in near future). The service launch comes after Uber won a public bid to offer its mobility services across 210 DMRC stations. An estimated half a million users accessed the transit option on the Uber app across eight cities, officials at the company said. Khosrowshahi said Uber’s long-term vision is to be the “operating system for everyday life”. The announcement comes days after Ola launched its self-drive car-sharing service, Ola Drive. The service, which has been rolled out in Bengaluru, will soon be extended to Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi. With over 200 million subscribers, Ola Drive has the largest user base for a car-sharing service in India, the company claims. Ola and Uber are locked in an intense competition in a market which is expected to be a leader in shared mobility by 2030.",

In this case, they're accused of paying to get their children admitted to the University of Southern California. The charge of conspiracy to commit federal programme bribery carries a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to USD 250,000.A total of 35 wealthy and celebrity parents have been charged in the scheme that showed how far some will go to get their children into top universities like Stanford and Yale.Some parents are accused of paying admissions consultant William \"Rick\" Singer to falsely portray their children as star athletes and then bribe college sports officials to get them admitted as recruited athletes. Others are accused of paying Singer to help cheat on their children's SAT and ACT exams.Singer has pleaded guilty and agreed to work with investigators in hopes of receiving a more lenient sentence.Along with the new conspiracy charge, Massachusetts real estate developer John Wilson also was indicted on two new counts of substantive federal programs bribery. Prosecutors said Wilson paid Singer USD 1 million in hopes of paying bribes to get two of his children into Stanford and Harvard.It's the second time prosecutors have added new charges for parents pleading not guilty in the case. In April, they added money laundering to the initial charges of fraud and conspiracy.US District Attorney Andrew Lelling said the latest charges stem an ongoing investigation. In a statement, he said the new indictment will further his goal \"to hold the defendants fully accountable for corrupting the college admissions process through cheating, bribery and fraud.\" Lawyers for Loughlin, who starred in the 1980s and '90s sitcom \"Full House,\" and Giannulli did not immediately respond to the charges.The couple is accused of paying USD 500,000 to get their two daughters into USC as recruits on the crew team, even though neither participated in the sport. Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty.The USC said Monday that the couple's daughters are \"not currently enrolled.\" The university's statement said it is \"unable to provide additional information because of student privacy laws.\" Others indicted on the new charge include William McGlashan, who co-founded an investment fund with U2 singer Bono in 2017, and Robert Zangrillo, a prominent Miami real estate developer. McGlashan and Zangrillo were among four parents also indicted on new wire fraud charges Monday.The 11 parents charged Tuesday are among 15 who are fighting the charges against them. Four other parents changed their not-guilty pleas Monday and were set to be sentenced next year.An additional 15 parents already have pleaded guilty in deals with prosecutors. Of the 10 parents sentenced so far, nine have received prison sentences, ranging from 14 days to five months. \"Desperate Housewives\" star Felicity Huffman was the first parent to be sentenced and is now serving her 14-day prison sentence.Prosecutors on Tuesday also announced new charges against several former sports coaches and others accused of accepting bribes. The seven defendants are now charged with mail and wire fraud and conspiring to commit that fraud on top of racketeering conspiracy.Among them are former Georgetown tennis coach Gordon Ernst and former USC athletics official Donna Heinel, accused of accepting bribes in exchange for admitting students as recruited athletes. They have pleaded not guilty.(This story has not been edited by Business Standard staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)",

                    "summary": "CoA reign ends as Ganguly all set to take over as 39th BCCI President One of India’s most decorated captains Sourav Ganguly will be taking over as the 39th president of the BCCI on Wednesday at its AGM, ending a tumultuous 33-month reign of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA). Ganguly is the unanimous nomination for the post of BCCI president along with Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s son Jay as the secretary. Mahim Verma of Uttarakhand is the new vice-president. Former BCCI president and current MoS finance Anurag Thakur’s younger brother Arun Dhumal is the treasurer while Kerala’s Jayesh George is the joint secretary. However, Ganguly will have a curtailed tenure of around nine months as he would need to demit office by the end of July next year as per the provisions of new constitutions, which makes ‘Cooling Off’ period mandatory after six years in office. READ: Kohli’s decision whether he wants to rest for Bangladesh T20Is, will speak to him on October 24: Ganguly Easily one of the most high-profile names to assume office, Ganguly will make use of his experience gained as the secretary and later president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), which will come in handy. He has set a few goals — primary being restructuring of first-class cricket as well as getting the administration back in shape along with getting India’s position of reverence back in the corridors of International Cricket Council (ICC). With Conflict of Interest rules being an impediment, Ganguly will also face the challenge of having quality cricketers on board as far as the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and national selection committee are concerned. “It’s a great opportunity for me to do something good,” the former India captain, who will have to demit office in July, due to compulsory cooling off period, had said last week. The 10-month is a short period and it also needs to be seen how the former India captain handles the disqualified old guards like N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah, whose children are now officially part of the BCCI. Ganguly’s relation with IPL chairman Brijesh Patel, a Srinivasan loyalist will also be of interest. His take on cricketing policies — Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s international future, Day/Night Test cricket, permanent Test centres will also be dissected. For CoA, it was an eventful 33-month tenure that comes to an end. CoA chief Vinod Rai informed the process that will be followed during the AGM. “First the accounts will be passed for the past three years. Then the electoral officer will announce the election results as everyone is unopposed. “Today we discussed some of the winding up issues and some minutes of the meetings were to be approved. We finalised tomorrow’s schedule in consideration with Sourav,” Rai told reporters after speaking to Ganguly. Rai said that he was happy with the Supreme Court order on the day. “Everything that the Supreme Court has done (orders), I have been very happy with it. We had asked for the directions as we could not have resigned. Since the Supreme Court appointed us, we had to be discharged from our duty from the court. “Every decision was court mandated. We haven’t changed the constitution. Whatever was given to us, we have worked in that [framework].”",

                        "summary": "The news that SoftBank will give Adam Neumann close to $1.7 billion as part of a package to leave WeWork's board and give up his voting power sent reverberations through the world of tech and finance Tuesday morning. Experts largely agree that SoftBank made the right move by separating Neumann from WeWork, but many bowled over by the astronomical value of Neumann's golden parachute. Legal experts said a shareholder lawsuit is unlikely, but that shareholders have good reason to be upset by the deal. Meanwhile, outside experts said the episode tarnishes the reputation of SoftBank and its billionaire CEO Masayoshi Son. Click here for more WeWork coverage. Japanese investor Softbank will reportedly give former WeWork CEO Adam Neumann close to $1.7 billion to leave the company's board and give up his voting power, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday morning, a move that sent reverberations through the world of tech and finance. In the wake of the news, five experts, including corporate law professors, analysts, and tech executives, spoke to Business Insider about their reactions to SoftBank's decision. While experts largely agree that Softbank made the right move by taking control of WeWork away from Neumann, they were astounded by the size of the golden parachute Neumann received. \"It's stone cold crazy,\" said Eric Schiffer, CEO of the Patriarch Organization, a technology and media private equity firm. \"I think SoftBank blinked, and Neumann walks away with one of the biggest hauls in modern history when he should have gotten very little.\" The embattled office-sharing startup was fighting to stay afloat after its IPO failed and Neumann stepped down as CEO last month. WeWork's board was reportedly also weighing a buyout from JP Morgan this week, Business Insider reported. SoftBank's buyout values the company at $8 billion, down from the $47 billion valuation it gave the company in August. As part of the deal, Neumann is expected to sell $1 billion in stock to SoftBank and receive $500 million in credit as well as a $185 million \"consulting fee,\" according to the Journal. A spokesperson for WeWork was not immediately available to comment. Here are the key takeaways from experts who spoke to Business Insider about the deal. Experts think Softbank was right to take WeWork away from Neumann, but were surprised by how much money Neumann got from the deal Separating Neumann from the future of WeWork is largely seen as the right move for Softbank. \"Softbank needed to do this to optimize their chances of recouping their initial investment on top of their new additional investment,\" said Loren Trimble, CEO of AArete, a global consulting firm. \"Any time anyone gets an offer for [$1.7 billion] from a company with such financial uncertainty, where it could potentially run out of cash in the next 30-40 days should feel fortunate.\" The sheer amount of money Softbank is reportedly giving Neumann struck multiple experts as surprising. \"I think anything over a dollar was more than they needed to pay. What it proves is Neumann's mastery at sophisticated negotiation when in reality he had very little cards. What occurred was shameful, for him to have gotten anything,\" Schiffer said. Nir Kossovsky, the CEO of Steel City Re, a risk management firm, said he believes severing ties with Neumann was the right move for the future of WeWork, but that the size of Neumann's \"golden parachute\" could reflect poorly on SoftBank's reputation. \"WeWork and SoftBank and perhaps even JP Morgan are in some level of a reputational crisis right now,\" Kossovsky said. \"Reputation risk can often be mitigated by sacrificing an executive or a board member … but throwing him overboard with a golden parachute does deliver a mixed message.\" Legal experts say a shareholder lawsuit against WeWork seems unlikely Minor Myers, a professor at UConn Law School specializing in corporate finance, said WeWork is unlikely to see a shareholder lawsuit, even if shareholders have good reason to be upset about how much money Neumann walked away with. \"The existing group of stockholders is employees and sophisticated investors,\" Myers said. \"These are people who are generally reluctant to bring lawsuits, because you have to say 'Hey you tricked me,' which doesn't make you look particularly sophisticated.\" Charles Korsmo, a professor of corporate law at Case Western Reserve, said he doesn't expect a shareholder lawsuit either. \"[Shareholders] are getting the opportunity to sell into SoftBank's tender offer, so they are probably feeling better than they were yesterday,\" he said. \"The WeWork shareholders themselves are primarily sophisticated parties who would likely be embarrassed to sue claiming they had been bamboozled.\" But experts agreed that shareholders have good reason to be upset at the deal Myers noted that WeWork's S-1 filing claimed Neumann was integral to the company's success, which could have made his departure a liability - but since the company never went public, those claims aren't grounds for a suit. \"There's a reason to be upset with SoftBank. If you think there's a problem with Adam Neumann, why didn't you do this before?\" he said. Korsmo predicted that SoftBank could face shareholder ire. SoftBank has sunk more than $10 billion into WeWork already. \"If anyone has reason for feeling aggrieved, it is the public shareholders of SoftBank, which appears to be throwing good money after bad,\" Korsmo said.",

The eleventh-hour deal throws a lifeline to WeWork parent We Co, which was on the verge of running out of cash after a failed public offering in September. By salvaging one of its biggest investments, SoftBank will give a second chance to WeWork to start over under new ownership. It also tosses a buoy to Neumann, who will give up his board seat and walk away with as much as $1.2 billion as well as a $500 million credit line from SoftBank, after it pushed him out as chief executive officer last month. Neumann is allowed to sell slightly less than $1 billion of stock to the Japanese conglomerate as part of the deal, said the people, who asked to remain anonymous because the agreement hasn’t been announced. He’ll remain as a board observer and can assign two board seats, one of the people said. Neumann will also get a roughly $185 million consulting fee. His net worth would still be at least $1 billion, according to calculations by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. WeWork chose the offer from SoftBank, which already owns about one-third of the company, over a competing proposal from JPMorgan Chase & Co. The deal, which values the office-sharing startup at about $8 billion before any new capital from SoftBank, marks a shocking fall from grace for a business emblematic of the latest tech boom that had been valued as recently as January at $47 billion. As part of SoftBank’s plan, one of its executives, Marcelo Claure, will take over as chairman of WeWork’s board, one of the people said. WeWork appointed Artie Minson and Sebastian Gunningham as co-CEOs last month after investors pushed back against the IPO. SoftBank and JPMorgan declined to comment. WeWork couldn’t immediately be reached. Dow Jones earlier reported details of the deal.",

                    "summary": "In what seems to be more trouble for mortgage lender DHFL, the lenders who are awaiting the final go-ahead for a resolution plan have hit a stonewall, after a forensic audit has reportedly found massive fund diversion by the promoters and thus are averse to lend any additional money to the crippled company. The third-largest mortgage lender had sought a Rs 15,000-crore lifeline from the lenders as they finalise the resolution plan, which may also include picking up 51 per cent equity in the company by converting their debt into equity. KPMG, which has carried out the forensic audit, has submitted a draft report to the lenders, which has reportedly found that the DHFL promoters had diverted nearly Rs 20,000 crore of bank loans to its related entities. Emails from PTI sent to KPMG and DHFL did not elicit any response. However, a DHFL source told PTI that the company is surprised at the purported KPMG report, as the consultancy was not asked to do any forensic audit on one hand and on the other, it has not shared the report with them and so are banks. However a banker confirmed the report to PTI and said, “if a loan is given to a company which has siphoned off funds, there may not be any additional funding to that company. We don’t want to get more money stuck with them anymore.” But the banker did not disclose the exact amount of funds that have been siphoned off by the debt-ridden housing finance company. Under the draft resolution plan, the lenders would pick up 51 per cent in the third largest mortgage lender by converting a part of their debt into equity. “The lenders are studying the draft forensic audit. The resolution plan is already in place. Now we have to see whether there really was any siphoning of funds. Once it is finalised then a call will be taken on the resolution plan,” said another banker. He said lenders consider only 50-52 percent of the total debt of Rs 90,000 crore of DHFL to be sustainable, which means the lenders will have to take a massive haircut. Looking at the large haircut, banks are unlikely to give additional funds to the company. “The concern is that if banks have to take a haircut of 40-45 percent, then why should they put additional money into the company,” asked a senior banker. The beleaguered home financier owes Rs 83,873 crore as of July 6, 2019 to banks, the National Housing Board, mutual funds and bondholders, including retail bondholders. As of July 6, its secured debt was Rs 74,054 crore and the unsecured debt stood at Rs 9,818 crore. The DHFL source claimed that that seven other agencies appointed by the lenders have not found anything seriously wrong with the company. Since August, as many as six agencies have carried out various reports on DHFL. While CBRE checked the project loans; JLL Property Consults checked its mortgage loans; Cushman & Wakefield studied its large project loans; Desai & Diwanji carried out a legal due diligence on the company; and India Ratings and Icra Ratings evaluated the draft resolution plan, the source informed. “KPMG was tasked with a special audit and not a forensic audit,” the source said, adding even bankers have not sounded them out on the report. “The resolution plan was accepted by the bankers consortium and the inter-creditor agreement signed by all the banks after these rating agencies cleared it,” the source said, adding following this banks appointed a steering committee of seven banks to take the final resolution plan to all-lenders for consent and execution. “The company remains committed towards working with their lenders on the debt resolution plan,” the source added. It can be recalled that last week, Kotak Mahindra Asset Management and Axis Asset Management had moved the Bombay High Court seeking a direction to DHFL to disclose all its assets and liabilities and also to temporarily prevent it from making further payments/disbursements to secured and unsecured creditors, except certain payments made on pro-rata basis to secured creditors.",

In prepared remarks, McDermott said he was \"fired up\" to take the helm of \"one of the most exciting innovation and growth companies in the world\". \"The company has a transformational platform, immensely talented colleagues and limitless potential,\" McDermott said. \"Fred Luddy has given us an enduring foundation on which to build the company's bright future. I consider it a personal honor to succeed John and help carry ServiceNow's proud legacy forward to the next chapter. I'm fired up and can't wait to get started!\" ServiceNow also issued preliminary third quarter financial results and updated guidance for the fiscal year.

Rob Thomas, General Manager, IBM Data and AI, said: \"We collaborate with clients every day and around the world on their data and AI challenges, and this year we tackled one of the big drawbacks to scaling AI throughout the enterprise - vendor lock-in.\" \"When we introduced the ability to run Watson on any cloud, we opened up AI for clients in ways never imagined. Today, we pushed that even further adding even more capabilities to our Watson products running on Cloud Pak for Data,\" added Rob. The American multinational information technology company also unveiled updates to key Watson tools and applications that are designed to give clients new capabilities and greater confidence in their AI projects. \"We have been collaborating with Indian organizations across sectors to help them a fast track to Chapter 2 of their digital reinvention, which is characterized by AI being embedded everywhere in the business,\" said Anil Bhasker, Business Unit Leader, Analytics Platform, IBM India-South Asia. \"With -- Watson Anywhere -- organisations are able to innovate and scale AI on any cloud instead of being locked into a single vendor, thus enabling them to maximize the value delivered by AI,\" Bhasker added. With rising data privacy regulation and growing concern for bias detections in its AP platform, IBM announced a new capability called 'Drift Detection' which detects when and how far a model 'drifts' from its original parameters. Between 2018 and 2019, organisations that have deployed AI grew from 4 per cent to 14 per cent, according to Gartner's 2019 CIO Agenda survey. Adding to growing enterprise complexities, a 2018 IBM Institute for Business Value study said that 76 per cent of organisations surveyed reported that they are already using at least two to 15 hybrid clouds, and 98 per cent forecast they will be using multiple hybrid clouds within three years. The innovations announced today are designed to help organizations overcome the barriers to AI. From detecting 'drift' in AI models to recognising nuances in the human voice, these new capabilities can be run across any cloud via IBM's Cloud Pak for Data platform to begin easily connecting their vast data stores to AI.

Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) wrote to the Prime Minister after Walmart CEO Doug McMillon raised issues concerning data privacy and regulatory stability for the e-commerce sector and urged Modi to reduce the number of licences and permits for the opening of new stores. Global retail giant Walmart, which has invested USD 16 billion in Flipkart, is facing challenges after the foreign direct investment rules for e-commerce marketplaces were changed by the government through a revised policy on FDI in online retail. In the letter, CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said: \"These kind of rhetorics by global players are nothing but a pressure tactic to find a headway into the large existing business potential of India’s Rs 45 lakh crore retail market...\" He also accused e-commerce firms of attempting to directly control India''s economy by indulging in ''unfair and monopolistic'' business practices. \"We urge you not to concede any ground to these unscrupulous corporates or buckle to the pressure which they are attempting to create for their own personal gains by disregarding the sanctity of India''s well defined laws and policies,\" Khandelwal said. He exuded confidence that the Prime Minister will prioritise the interests of seven crore traders across the country and ensure that these foreign companies comply strictly with the laws and policies of the government in letter and spirit.
