But from one India tour on their soil each of the host nations generates manifold. That is where the essence and importance of BCCI in the world cricket’s ecosystem stands at. Just imagine, if boards like CA or CSA with the broadcast deals in place are feeling such a heat, what will be status of those boards who are yet to sell their media rights portfolios.– CWI is looking for media deal since last 6 months now– BCB is soon hitting the market– SLC is in market since the month of February but no takers have come forward– PCB will be in the market next month“India tour for each one of them will be make or break. They will literally struggle to sell the rights otherwise in this kind of market. Covid19 could not have come at worse time when most of the cricketing nations are trying to earn their bread and butter through these set of rights”, according to Sports Media Rights expert & CEO of Sporty Solutions Ashish Chadha.  Cricket Facebook Twitter TAGSBCCIcricket AustraliaCricket BusinessCricket NewsCricket South AfricaCricket West IndiesICCSriLanka Cricket SHARE Cricket Business : BCCI’S stature to grow further as world cricket is ready to dance to its tune Past Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

The others also may do the same. ICC has called for member board’s Chief Executives teleconference to deliberate the way forward on the T20 World Cup, ICC World Test Championships and other scheduling issues. But during this crucial tele-meeting, It will not be surprising if most of the member boards sing and dance to the BCCI’S tune instead of following the body which governs the world cricket.center_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR CricketSports BusinessCricket BusinessLatest Sports NewsNewsSport Cricket Cricket WTC final LIVE broadcast: ICC’s mega broadcast plan, India vs New Zealand live streaming starts today in 195 countries IND vs NZ Live Streaming for free with Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea, Check out the best Recharge Plan Cricket “SA won’t feel the financial pinch immediately.

Vodafone vs BT share price rated

first_img Enter Your Email Address Access this special “Green Industrial Revolution” presentation now The BT Group (LSE: BT-A) share price has risen by 69% over the last year. Rival Vodafone Group (LSE: VOD) has managed a gain of just 16%.However, if we take a step back, we find that BT shares are still down by nearly 50% on a five-year view. Vodafone is only slightly better, down by around 40%. Both companies have also cut their dividends during this period.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…These businesses have not been great investments in recent years. But they do still have market-leading brands and big market share. Both companies are under new management too. I’ve been taking a fresh look to see which one I’d buy today.BT share price: is it too late?BT has a near-monopoly of the UK’s broadband infrastructure. It also owns the UK’s largest mobile network, EE. This business really ought to be able to make money — and it does. BT’s results for the year to 31 March showed that it made a pre-tax profit of £1.5bn on revenue of £21bn.Surplus cash generated during the year came in at £1.5bn, but unlike in previous years, shareholders did not receive a dividend. This unusual situation highlights one of BT’s big problems. Although it makes a lot of money, it can’t stop spending.Capital expenditure last year was £4.2bn. The company also paid out £0.9bn in finance costs and made a £1bn payment to try and reduce its £5.1bn pension deficit. Similar levels of spending are likely over the next few years, as BT cranks up its efforts to expand its fibre broadband and 5G mobile networks.I reckon BT’s dominant market share should allow the company to provide best-in-class services while benefiting from economies of scale. But this story hasn’t played out very well in recent years, so I could be wrong. I certainly don’t think there’s much room for error.Broker forecasts suggest that BT’s profits will grow by no more than 5% over the next couple of years. BT’s share price of 200p means the stock is already trading on 10 times earnings, while the forecast dividend yield has fallen to just 3.7%.I’d say BT shares are probably high enough at the moment.Vodafone stock: African growth potentialVodafone is known as a mobile operator in the UK, but it also operates major broadband networks in much of western Europe. The group doesn’t suffer from BT’s pension problems, but Vodafone is similar in other regards — it has a lot of debt, big spending plans, and doesn’t generate much growth.However, I’m more positive about the medium-term outlook for Vodafone. I like the group’s pan-European presence in mobile, and I’m excited about the growth potential of its operations in Africa.Vodafone is one of the largest mobile operators in Africa, where it also operates the M-Pesa mobile money system. Mobile payments are a fast-growing sector in Africa, where much of the population lacks access to conventional banking facilities.Vodafone’s share price has fallen behind that of BT recently, but one advantage of this is that its dividend yield remains high, at 5.9%. My analysis suggests this payout should remain safe, although new plans to increase spending on network upgrades could put pressure on the payout.I think that both companies will require patience. But I’d choose Vodafone over BT at current share prices.

In response to claims that in reality they will actually save significantly less, Mr Varadkar has offered only Tory tub thumping.”The Limerick politician is of the view that tackling legitimate fraud is important. But claims that instead of spelling out the savings from what may be legitimate fraud protection measures, Minister Varadkar has reverted to discredited Fine Gael right wing talking points complaining about ‘those who pay for nothing’.“FG rhetoric on social welfare recipients may be one of the hardy perennials of Irish politics, but it is also highly dangerous. Unless he can spell out where exactly these savings are coming from, it would appear that he is attempting to stir up resentment and exclusionary instincts against those who legitimately rely on support, for the sole purpose of his personal political ambitions. It is important therefore that Mr Varadkar move quickly to clarify how his figure of €500 million has been arrived at,” O’Dea said.However, in his response to the Limerick Post this week, Minister Varadkar was quick to rubbish the Limerick TD’s comments.“That’s just nonsense from Willie O’Dea. This campaign is designed to encourage people to report fraud. Any money saved as a result of this campaign can be returned to hard-working taxpayers or used to improve payments to those genuinely in need in the next Budget.“It targets those who are claiming social welfare payments they are not entitled to. It also targets employers paying cash under the counter. There has been a great response from the public with a two-fold increase in reports already,” said Minister Alan [email protected]last_img read more

No Embargo Under The CGST Act Restraining Pre-Arrest Bail: Kerala High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesNo Embargo Under The CGST Act Restraining Pre-Arrest Bail: Kerala High Court Lydia Suzanne Thomas25 April 2021 9:23 PMShare This – xThe Kerala High Court on Thursday allowed anticipatory bail to a person who apprehended arrest for supposed infractions of the Central Goods and Services Tax.Finding that there was no embargo to a person’s applying for pre-arrest bail under the legislation, Justice Ashok Menon stated, “There is no embargo under the CGST Act restraining the applicant from seeking pre-arrest bail. There is no analogous provision under Sections 18 and 18A of the SC/ST( Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, preventing grant of anticipatory bail.” In finding that a grant of anticipatory bail under GST law was permissible, the Court analysed sections of the CGST legislation that provided for arrest against provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure and the Constitution. For this, the Court discussed Sections 132 and 69 of the CGST Act. Section 132 lists twelve offences punishable with imprisonment or fine and Section 69 allows a Commissioner of Tax to authorise a person to make arrests. In his Order, Justice Menon culls these principles concerning offences, their penalties, and safeguards against arrest under GST law -Certain safeguards against abuse of the powers to arrest have been inserted under the CGST Act itself. The power to arrest has been granted only in respect of certain specific offences.Offences where arrest is permitted include those where the act in question is committed with an intention to evade tax or where it results in monetary loss to the Government exchequer.There is an additional layer of restriction on the power to arrest most ‘first time offenders’. Arrest of such offenders can only be exercised when the aforementioned offences involve an amount exceeding Rupees one hundred lakh or more.The aforementioned monetary threshold is not applicable to all offences. In certain cases, the amount involved in the offence is not relevant.Power of arrest under the CGST Act have been allowed based on the combined assessment of the severity of the offence and the amount involved therein. The safeguards in the form of pre-arrest authorisation have also been inserted in the text of the CGST Act itself.Section 69 of the CGST Act permits the Commissioner of GST to authorise arrests in certain cases, based on the seriousness and the amount involved, but in all other cases, arrests are to be conducted according to provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure.There appears to be an inversely proportional relationship between the gravity of the offence in question and the safeguards applicable thereon.However, the provisions still appear to comply with basic standards as even in cases of the grave offences under the Act, the Commissioner who is a Senior GST official is permitted to authorise arrest only if he has reason to believe that a person has committed an offence. The Senior Intelligence Officer is not permitted to conduct arrests under the CGST Act till the Commissioner records his satisfaction on ‘reasons to believe’ authorizing him to arrest the assessee.The insertion of the phrase ‘reason to believe’ demonstrates the legislature’s intention to make an affirmative attempt to circumscribe the discretionary powers and permit their exercise only in a bona fide manner, to further the interest of revenue.The discretion of the Commissioner to authorise arrest is in the most serious offences listed under the CGST Act.The CGST Act also provides the process to be followed once arrests are conducted by a central tax officer on the authorisation of the Commissioner. The officer in question is required to inform the arrested person of the grounds of his arrest and must produce such person before the Magistrate within twenty-four hours of arrest. Explaining the expression ‘reason to believe’, the Court prescribed that it must not be purely subjective satisfaction and must have a rational connection with, or a relevant bearing on the formation of the belief. After analysing the provisions for arrest and culling the safeguards provided against the same, the Court remarked that they were in consonance with Section 49 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and Article 22 of the Constitution.Application to the factsOn the facts of the case, the Court found the applicant’s apprehension was well-founded. The case involved a person which involved a person apprehending arrest for one AR Agencies’ failure to pay GST to the tune of Rs. 17.53 Crore. The proprietor of the agency, Rajoob P.A, and his primary colluder, Abdul Saleem of Ittonam, Palakkad were proceeded against and their business and residential premises searched. While the investigation against them progressed, it was stated that the applicant had filed the GSTR-I returns for A.R Agencies and prepared GST invoices valued at Rs. 348.7 crores using the credentials of the Agency. The applicant’s house was searched and ‘incriminating evidence’ recovered, as per the GST officials’ statements. The applicant was thereafter issued a summons. The applicant averred that he did not know of the agency or Rajoob though he was acquainted with Abdul Saleem. Moving court apprehending arrest, the applicant asserted his innocence. Finding that objections filed by GST officials to the writ petition did not disclose any material that could implicate him as an accused, the Court opined that Rajoob ought to have been made answerable for anything done by the agency. Additionally, he had not been arrayed as an accused. The Court highlighted, “It is settled position that the applicant apprehending arrest need not be made an accused in a crime to seek the relief of anticipatory bail. Its is sufficient in case he succeeds in establishing that his apprehension of arrest is reasonable.” It was also stated, “The fact that they have not arraigned him as an accused indicates lack of material. The applicant’s apprehension of arrest is reasonable, because Abdul Saleem, who is also not a proprietor, has been arrested. In the objections filed by the respondents before this court in the Writ Petition also do not disclose any incriminating material against the applicant. Merely by stating that they recovered incriminating materials may not suffice.” Therefore, the Court deemed that anticipatory bail could be allowed and directed the applicant to cooperate with the investigation. In the event of his arrest, he was to be released on bail after executing a bond for Rs 5,00,000.CASE: Abdul Shaji v.

Library program highlights need for state water plan

first_imgLatest Stories Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder But Alabama is not without its water problems, from the improper enforcement of environmental regulations to the lack of planning and policy to ensure sustainable water for the future.“We need to do more to protect our water supply,” Lowry said. “We need to generate greater awareness about the threats to our water supply because water is essential to everything we do. Water is fundamental to life.”Lowry said water providers, agriculture, environmental group, local governments and business communities are attempting to identify and address threats to the state’s water supply. However, among its neighboring states, Alabama is the only one that does not have a comprehensive water plan. “State leadership is needed to protect our water supply,” Lowry said.

We have changed the way our natural world looks so we need a plan that includes how much water we need for future use. We must create a plan before there is a crisis.”Lowry advised her audience to talk to their state legislators and let them know their concern about the future and safety of the state’s water supply and the need for a comprehensive water plan for Alabama.
