Memo to Kejriwal: Ban on Uber, Ola surge pricing is of little help for consumers

Surge pricing is a global phenomenon which means commuters have to shell out higher fares at certain times of high demand or when cab drivers are unhappy with incentives by the cab aggregators and do not wish to work. It is something that San Francisco-based Uber, for example, uses globally. And faces ridicule for, globally. #Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal #Delhi odd even formula #Ola #Uber

Budget 2016: For ‘Bharat’ to deliver, govt should take steps to make agriculture profitable

A more focused approach to tackle farm distress could work around improved irrigation, a more workable system to assess crop damages and a linked crop insurance scheme #Agriculture 2016 #Arun Jaitley #Direct Benefit Transfer scheme #Economic Survey #farming households #fertiliser subsidy schemes #Insurance 2016 #NDA #Union Budget 2016

Like it or not, DGCA is right in suspending Jet Airways crew after Sonu Nigam’s mid-air ‘concert’

In a somewhat similar sense, it is best to not copy international practices mid-air and take a rather conservative approach to safety by eschewing mid-air singing or dancing in the Indian airspace. #Aviation #ConnectTheDots #DGCA #Jet Airways #Safety violations #Sonu Nigam #SpiceJet

For the aviation sector to grow in India, it needs handholding by the policy makers

India is poised to become the world’s third largest aviation market in about a decade and perhaps it will attain this milestone despite little help from the mandarins in Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, the nerve centre of aviation policy making #air india #airlines #Aviation #ConnectTheDots #GoAir #India #IndoGo #Vistara
