Infosys is paying over Rs 1 crore to more than 1,800 employees





In contrast, of its 48,400 overseas employees 1,800 are already crorepatis in rupee terms. To be sure, the high salaries for skilled professionals in developed markets are a reflection of them being paid in foreign currencies and commensurate with several years of experience.

Indian IT companies are likely to hire freshers in the US initially. But even that strategy will not mitigate cost pressures for long as companies compete for similar talent.

Idea posts first full year loss in face of Jio offensive - May 2017

Bashed by a severe tariff war, telecom operator Idea Cellular today reported a consolidated loss of Rs 325.6 crore in the three-month period ended March 31, 2017.

The company had posted a profit of Rs 449.2 crore in the same period a year ago.

For Idea, this is the second consecutive consolidated loss in two back-to-back quarters as the company viewed the October-April period as particularly harsh and a 'period of telecom discontinuity'.

For the October-December 2016 quarter, Idea has posted its first-ever consolidated net loss of Rs 383.87 crore compared to a net profit of Rs 659.35 crore in the year-ago period.

"The Indian wireless industry witnessed an unprecedented disruption in the second half of financial year 2016-17 on account of free voice & mobile data promotions by the new entrant in the sector.

The October-April 2017 interval can be best described as Period of Telecom Discontinuity, permanently changing mobility business parameters," Idea Cellular said in a statement.

Reliance Jio made its disruptive entry into the Indian mobile market space in September last year by making voice calls and 4G data free as part of its promotional offer that continued till March this year.

Total revenues of the company declined by 13.7% at Rs 8,194.5 crore from Rs 9,500.7 crore it registered a year ago in the corresponding quarter.

Idea Cellular also posted its first-ever annual consolidated loss at Rs 404 crore for 2016-17 compared to a profit of Rs 2,174.2 crore in 2015-16.

Annual income of Idea Cellular declined marginally to Rs 35,882.7 crore at the end of 2016-17 from Rs 36,162.5 crore it reported at the end of the previos fiscal.

In an effort to retain its existing mobile subscribers, Idea said it was forced to reduce on sequential quarterly basis, its voice rate by 12.5% to 25.9 paise per minute compared to 29.6 paise in the previous quarter of 2016-17 as well as it dropped its mobile data rate by 27.6 per cent to 11.5 paise per megabyte compared to 15.9 paisa in the third quarter of 2016-17.

"However, the lure of free offerings by the new mobile operator resulted in lower than normal volume elasticity with sequential quarterly voice minutes growing by 10.3 per cent to 231.4 billion minutes versus 209.8 billion minutes in third quarter of financial year (FY) 2017," Idea said.

Idea Cellular also blamed tsunami of minutes terminating on Idea network from the new operator, resulting in overall higher ratio of incoming minutes recorded at below cost inteconnection usage charge rates" for fall in blended voice realisation rate.

The impact of free extended promotions was even more pronounced on mobile data business.

Idea witnessed a sequential quarterly decline of 6.4 million mobile data customers on the back of 5.5 million loss in October-December 2017 versus second quarter of FY 2017.

Its overall mobile data customer base receded to 42.2 million compared to 48.6 million in October-December 2017 period.

The 'non voice revenue' (including data) contribution to the 'overall service revenue' fell to 24.9 per cent as mobile data revenue contribution declined to 18.3 per cent.

"However, the company remains optimistic of revival of mobile data subscriber addition and data revenue in FY 2018 as wireless broadband prices become more affordable for higher adoption by the Indian masses across all socio-economic & geographic segments," Idea said.

Non IT Market Updates / Modifications in Aadhaar, PAN ...

Modifications in Aadhaar, PAN can now be corrected online - May 2017

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed to make Aadhaar mandatory for filing of the Income-Tax returns as well as for obtaining the Permanent Account Number (PAN).

In a big relief to people, the income tax department recently launched an online facility to correct errors (names and other details) in permanent account number (PAN) and Aadhaar. The department has put two separate hyperlinks on its e-filing website. The first option allows user to update changes in existing PAN data or for application of new PAN by an Indian or a foreign citizen. The second hyperlink will help individuals who want to update Aadhaar details by logging into 'Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal', using the unique identity number. Then, the individual can upload scanned documents as proof for data update request.

Earlier, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed to make Aadhaar mandatory for filing of the Income-Tax returns as well as for obtaining the Permanent Account Number (PAN).

According to the reports of leading news agency PTI, over 1.22 crore people already have Aadhaar-linked PAN but the number is very low as there are over 25 crore PAN card holders in the country, while Aadhaar has been issued to 111 crore people. As per statistics with the tax department, only 6 crore people file income tax returns at present.

Last week, the income tax department launched a facility to enable a taxpayer to link his Aadhaar and PAN. It required a person to put in PAN and Aadhaar number along with his name as per the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) data.

After verification from the UIDAI, the linking will be confirmed. In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided, Aadhaar OTP will be sent to the mobile number registered with the UIDAI. Additionally, the income tax department has now launched a facility to correct anomalies in PAN or Aadhaar document.

Google / Google makes changes to AdSens...

Google makes changes to AdSense in a bid to increase transparency for website publishers

Google announced two changes to its AdSense network today that it says will increase transparency about how it deals with violations and removes ads from websites.

First, AdSense's technology has been changed so it can now remove ads from individual pages, instead of entire websites. Previously, Google usually removed ads from every page on a website after a policy violation, instead of just the pages with offending content.

Second, Google will launch a platform in a few weeks called the "Policy Center" to help website publishers understand the program's rules and fix violations more quickly.

In a post on The Keyword, one of Google's official blogs, Scott Spencer, the company's director of sustainable ads, wrote "as we roll out page-level policy action as the new default for content violations, we'll be able to stop showing ads on select pages, while leaving ads up on the rest of a site's good content. We'll still use site-level actions but only as needed. And when it's necessary, such as in the case of egregious or persistent violations, we'll still terminate publishers. Altogether, this means fewer disruptions for publishers."

Of course, this also means less disruption and more money for Google, since it shares revenue from AdSense with publishers.

AdSense's new Policy Center will give publishers information about how many violations their sites have, what issues triggered ad removals, and step-by-step instructions about how to fix the problem so they can start displaying ads and making money again. Spencer referred to this as a "one-stop shop for everything a publisher needs to know about policy actions that affect their sites and pages."

The Policy Center is intended for website publishers who use AdSense, but YouTubers who monetize their videos through the program will also be curious about how it affects them. That is still unclear, however: Spencer said in his blog post that "later this year, we'll be adding policy centers in other publisher platforms in addition to AdSense," but he did not specify which ones.

Many YouTube creators have seen their ad revenue drop dramatically since Google made changes to how ads are displayed on its ad network and YouTube. The changes, which include different default settings, more account controls for advertisers, and a hiring spree to develop new artificial intelligence tools, were implemented after companies began boycotting Google because their ads appeared next to offensive videos.

YouTubers, however, have complained that the new controls unfairly penalize even videos that adhere to the platform's policies and asked Google to be more transparent about how its moderation by people or algorithms work.

Hot News - InFocus / The biggest ransomware attacks...

The biggest ransomware attacks hits Indian companies - may 2017

More than 45,000 computers in hospitals, IT organizations, railway station networks, ATMs and even universities across 74 countries have been severely affected by the WannaCryptransomware worm also popularly called Wcry. This is the biggest ransomware attack in recorded history.

The WannaCrypt vulnerability blocks windows files and users need to make payments towards the hackers to restore access. A certain worm spread across systems which run on Windows OS and installs this bug.

But it is critical to notice that Microsoft has already sent across patches around a month ago. But this bug has already affected many systems which had not installed the latest security updates.

The bug was earlier abused by National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on their targets across the world. But in April this year, one of their internal tools called Eternalblue was stolen and leaked online. After that it was used to hack many machines across the internet.

"The exploit known as MS17-010 was previously patched by Microsoft. However, Windows XP machines which no longer receive updates are at particular risk. Machines using current Windows operating systems which have not been patched with March 15 updates are also at risk," says Amit Nath, Head of Asia Pacific - Corporate Business at F-Secure Corporation.

In terms of WannaCrypt's impact on India, Saket Modi, CEO, Lucideus Tech says that this worm can have potential impact on the government. "Most government departments don't have specific different OS for its operations and the same risk factor applies to government too."

According to many independent reports, many Indian companies were affected. Amongst those were systems of Andhra Pradesh police department, manufacturing companies in Delhi, 2 sme's in Delhi and one big corporate house in Mumbai. But certain cyber security experts point out that the actual impact of the attack can be ascertained only when people try logging into their systems on Monday.

Similarly, Nath pointed out that no country is safe from this Ransomware as it can lead to data loss, compromise business and organisations efficiency leading to reputation and financial loss.

An official of the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) told ET that so far the agency has not received any reports about the impact in India. "'Our researchers are on the job and trying to figure out if there has been any impact in India," the official said. CERT has already issued an advisory alerting people about the spreading ransomware. "We had also issued an advisory in March, those people who would have acted on it, would be safe," said the official.

Meanwhile CERT-IN has also issued a vulnerability note on its website (CERTIn Vulnerability Note CIVN20170032 Multiple vulnerabilities in Windows SMB Original Issue Date: March 15, 2017) with a Severity Rating of HIGH on March 15, 2017 for possible remote exploitation of this vulnerability and to apply the patch released by Microsoft for the same.

Famous whistleblower Edward Snowden pointed out that "This is a special case. Had @NSAGov disclosed the vuln when they discovered it, hospitals would have had years -- not months -- to prepare."

18-year-old from Tamil Nadu designs world's lightest satellite

Eighteen-year-old Rifath Sharook, belonging to a comparatively unknown town of Pallapatti in Tamil Nadu, is all set to break a global space record by launching the lightest satellite in the world, weighing a mere 64 grams.

The satellite, called KalamSat, will be launched by a NASA sounding rocket on June 21 from Wallops Island, a NASA facility. This will be the first time an Indian student's experiment will be flown by NASA.

Speaking to TOI from Pallapatti, Rifath said it will be a sub-orbital flight and post-launch, the mission span will be 240 minutes and the tiny satellite will operate for 12 minutes in a micro-gravity environment of space. "The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3-D printed carbon fibre," he explained. He said the satellite was selected through a competition called 'Cubes in Space', jointly organised by NASA and a organisation called 'I Doodle Learning'.

The main challenge was to design an experiment to be flown to space which will fit into a four-metre cube weighing exactly 64 grams. "We did a lot of research on different cube satellites all over the world and found ours was the lightest," he said. Rifath said the satellite is made mainly of reinforced carbon fibre polymer. "We obtained some of the components from abroad and some are indigenous," he said.
