In a pandemic context, he recommended retaining urban talent as they are already working from home and leveraging industry expertise at scale. He suggested establishing boards of advisors and independent directors to stay focused.

Panel discussion on industry insights and solutions to critical problems at present started with Ashish Narola (CEO, Narola Infotech) exploring the availability of good talent and emphasizing on training, stating ‘if we assume that employees will leave after training, what if they are not trained and stay?’ Dr. Rakesh Doshi (PhD, Traders’ Psychology) encouraged owners to be driven enough, stressing that one does not have to be a leader to lead; leadership comes with the drive.’ Jitesh Kapadia (CEO, August Infotech) emphasized a top-down approach to empower management and team leads for greater results and scale of businesses. Ms. Dhara Shah (Director, Sanskruti Technologies) emphasized leveraging local talent and prioritizing tech expertise over soft skills.

Suresh Kalathiya (CEO, Ebizz Infotech) emphasized the importance of creating a support system.

This was further echoed by Mr. Trivedi via Iconscout journey from Surat to Bangalore and back, highlighting the potential of the city and its culture in the IT sector.

Veterans encouraged mentorship opportunities and how to absorb shocks from failures, navigate common potholes and improving the infrastructure for all.

Dr. Naren Burade advised the current generation to use reliable resources while avoiding short-cuts that can prove futile in the long term. Intelligent interaction of 3 hours created a feeling of belonging for techies in the cities and opened doors for fellowships and friendships.

Vishal Virani, the CEO, concluded the event by quipping ‘Innovation has no designated place; it finds its way when we appreciate the resources at hand. Going to Silicon Valley is a mindset; learning from it to build an equivalent or better community here at home is a far more important pursuit.’ Kalpesh and Rahul echoed the same message by quoting Isaac Newton, ‘If I am able to see further than others, it is because of standing on the shoulders of giants”.

SEBI Committee approves the creation of Social Stock Exchange in India

Samhita recently conducted a study of SSE’s in 7 countries to evaluate its importance in India

 October 21: The Securities and Exchange Board of India approved the creation of the ‘Social Stock Exchange’, which is seen as a game-changer in the social impact segment. These are regulated platforms that bring together social organisations, donors, and investors to facilitate funding and aid in the growth of organisations with a social purpose.

Samhita’s study on Social Stock Exchanges from seven countries

Samhita’s report reviews seven SSEs in Brazil, Portugal, South Africa, Jamaica, the UK, Singapore and Canada. The report analyses the recommendations proposed by India’s SSE Working Group and provides additional suggestions.

India as the world’s largest democracy, gears up to construct an SSE customized to the needs of the Indian organizational ecosystem, a comprehensive analysis of the experiences, structures, and learnings from SSEs across the world can aid civil society, policymakers and the private sector in their endeavor to create an enabling environment for social organizations.

Highlights of the study –

  • Domestic regulations and taxation laws play a crucial role in influencing SSE structure
  • SSEs focus on certain visible thematic areas
  • While SSEs allowed different types of donors/investors, institutional investors are common
  • SSEs have strong measuring and reporting metrics but do not always capture the impact
  • SSEs face challenges of sustainability and scale
  • SSEs have the potential to play a role in building the social sector

SSEs can theoretically unlock new capital, promote equity, and introduce new instruments for donors to fund operations, streamline regulations and create an ecosystem of enabling frameworks for civil society. The report also lays down the risks such as duplicating the operations of a conventional stock exchange, segmenting or further exacerbating inequalities within sectors, and failing to create a strong culture of giving. Stakeholders must create a representative that incorporates the concerns and wisdom of civil society and social organisations. The report concludes that an SSE can be a means for the markets to serve the society, not for society to serve the markets.

“Our report did a comprehensive analysis and reviewed SSEs across seven countries. It suggests that engaging and educating donors/ investors about effective and strategic forms of giving, and providing commensurate tax incentives to incentivize them, are critical factors that can determine the success and sustainability of the SSE in India, in addition to the provisions already created by SEBI.”, says Tanushree Parekh, Advisor, Samhita.

Addendum:

Given below are the key findings and guidelines enlisted by experts of the Samhita team for the Social Stock Exchange in India.

SEBI has specified that SSE will allow both non-profit and for-profit social organizations to list. It is likely that SEBI may approve the criteria put forth by the second expert committee (Technical Group).

  • In our view, the criteria for non-profit and for-profit social organizations are fair and reasonable, allowing a wide range of social organizations across sectors, ranging from small to large, to register and thereby promote equity of access in the social sector.
  • The INR 100 Cr. capacity building fund suggested by the two expert committees can be leveraged to aid smaller organizations in strengthening their systems and processes and thus prepare them for listing on the SSE.
  • The Technical Group had also recommended specific criteria (67% or more revenues/ expenditures/ beneficiaries to be from underserved segments) to safeguard against impact-washing by for-profit social enterprises and establish the primacy of social impact in their models.
  • Standardized reporting and social audit requirements stipulated by SEBI will help strengthen the transparency and credibility of the social sector.

However, the SSE should ensure that the accreditation and certification process for social auditors takes into consideration the context, nuances and realities of social organizations and programs and avoids blueprinting from financial auditing processes. A multi-stakeholder process involving practitioners, academia and social research organizations can impart credibility and relevance to the social audit certification.

Parduman Suri was awarded the ‘Youth Icon Star 2021 – Jyotish Urja’ award by Jyotish Prangan in Chandigarh

Chandigarh (Punjab) [India], October 21: A national organization dedicated to Vedic astrology and Ayurveda honoured India’s youngest astrologer, Parduman Suri, with the prestigious Youth Icon Star 2021-Jyotish Urja award at an awards function held in Chandigarh on October 18.

Rana Gurjeet Singh, Cabinet Minister in the Punjab government, presented the Jyotish Urja award to Hisar’s Shri Mahamrutyunjay Antarrashtriya Jyotish Anusandhan Kendra’s Jyotish Acharya, Pradhuman Suri in the presence of Ayurveda experts, astrologers and natural healers, who gathered from across the country in Chandigarh.

Jyotish Prangan, an organization, working for Vedic astrology and Ayurveda in Haryana’s Panchkula, has done a remarkable job in the regeneration and betterment of Vedic astrology in India and abroad.

Addressing a mammoth gathering at the event, Parduman Suri said, “Vedic science and astrology could play an important role in curbing the drugs addiction among the youths in Punjab and across the country. If the moon goes to the 6th, 8th, or 12th place in the horoscope, then such person is mentally disturbed and progresses towards depression and intoxication.”

Suri added, “To prevent the drugs addiction among the young generation, Vedic astrology suggests watering Shivling and regular meditation. The drug addicts would turn away from intoxication if they are brought on the path of spirituality, positivity, and meditation.”

Earlier, Parduman Suri was honored with the Jyotish Bhushan by the Governor of Uttrakhand. He has been awarded Jyotish Martand and Jyotish Vibhusan and has received many national and international awards in the field of Vedic astrology.

This Festive Season, Real Estate Developers to Launch Unique Offers to Boost Property Sales in India

October 21: This festive season, the leading real estate developers in India to roll out unique offers that can scale up property sales by more than 55% as against the last quarter. The real estate experts have predicted a strong demand in the festive season as the affordability factors such as lower interest rates, flexible payment plans, and tax concessions will be coupled with the festive offers.

The property buyers respond well to the festive season as the property buying intent remains at its peak during this period. The main advantage that the homebuyer can get during the festive season is customized or flexible payment plans. It includes offers such as No EMIs till the possession and only 10% booking charges remaining at the time of possession. It impacts positively on the overall real estate sales in India.

Besides the flexible payment plans, developers also give offers such as No GST, Zero stamp duty, and upfront discounts. With these offers, the developers emphasize liquidating the unsold inventory considering the solid intent of the property buyers during the festive season.

“In the festive season, the number of property buyers visiting our digital real estate portal increases sharply. It highlights the strong intent of the buyers in this period. So, the developers are ready for flexible payment plans along with the other key offers. These offers not only to benefit the buyers but enable developers to capitalize the unsold inventory.” says Mangesh Jagtap, Regional Manager, HomeBazaar.com

The second wave of the covid19 pandemic harmed the home buying sentiment in the first and the second quarter of 2021. The primary reasons for this stagnant phase were the increased medical expenses and the lower on-site visits owing to the movement restrictions. It resulted in a decline in property sales in the top eight major cities. Further, this contributed to the higher unsold inventory in the first quarter that remained modest till June. Therefore, the upcoming festive season starting from September will provide a favourable ground to boost real estate in India.

“The festive season will be a game-changer for both property buyers and developers. From the buyer’s perspective, the conditions are favourable by getting unprecedented offers and discounts coupled with the lowest interest rates in the last fifteen years. The developers, on the other hand, can quickly raise their sales figures.” said Pravin Daud, Business Operations Head, HomeBazaar.com

In the real estate industry, the festive season triggers the maximum demand and property sales. Being a competitive market, the developers come up with unique offers that benefit the property buyers by improving the affordability factor.

Last year during the festive season, the buyer sentiment improved due to the active initiatives by the developers to bring affordability. In the eight major metro cities, property sales increased by 50% compared to the previous quarter. Similarly, this year the homebuyers can expect offers that will boost real estate sales.
