I am currently in the process of moving my main blog to my new domain ekawaaz.org. I just began the process, so I guess it will take bit of more time before I can say “Yes” all working. Main reason of moving to new location is that I want to have more control over my blog. As I am still in process so I have decided that I will be keep posting on this blog and also copy the main content over to my new domain so that all my regular and new readers know my new location and can update their blogroll. I am also in process of updating Blogroll and My frequent visit section so if I miss anyone by mistake kindly do send me email pointing out my mistake so that I can rectify it straightaway. I am also happy to exchange links with new guys as I am looking for new network of likeminded people who are interested in politics, India happening and in world politics.

No future for the low-cost airline in India?
India is not a suitable country for low-cost airline operations as it not only lacks infrastructure like low-cost secondary airports but also the cost of their staff is at par with full service carriers (FSC), a study has claimed. Also, the low fare carriers (LFCs) have to face tough competition from Indian Railways and road transport for destinations of shorter durations. “India has very few secondary airports from which the low fare carriers could operate. Of the 127 airports with the Airports Authority of India, only 80 are operational,” aerospace expert Harmoz P Mama claimed in a study ‘Civil Aviation in India : Challenges and Prospects´.
Yes this is right because the low-cost tariff model for an airline business in India is suffering lack of infrastructure. We don’t have2nd tier airports to cater low cost airlines, means all fees (airport charges for Airlines) are the same for both regular full service airlines and low-cost airline. Low-cost airlines reduce fares by cutting in-flight service and making use of cheaper airports or we can say 2nd tier airports. But in India we don’t have any tier 2 airports to cater these discounted carriers like we have in Europe and USA a major market for Low-Cost Airlines. Government should make some plans for the development of a separate terminal (No frills airport) for these carriers and should do more in order to promote budget air travel. If we really care and if India really needs this Low-Cost Airlines then government should put focus on infrastructure development which is a major requirement for this aviation industry and for also better economy health.

Gujarat ministers, MLAs New Year Treats: Likely to get 25% pay hike
While the people of Indian’s are suffering from recession, job loss and economic crisis our so called leaders are treating themselves by hiking their own salary and that also at par with Government class 1 Officers. Unbelievable.
From Time of India:
At a time when private companies and corporate houses are planning to cut costs, the Gujarat government has proposed a 25 per cent increase in salaries of MLAs and ministers, sources in the government said. The new pay scale, at par with those of Class I officers, will come into effect from April 2009, sources said. “In 2005, we had passed a bill in the state assembly by which pay scales of MLAs and ministers have been brought at par with a Class I government servant,” state assembly speaker Ashok Bhatt said.
In times of recession, there should be no pay hike, perks for Indian leaders. It’s a time to tight the belt of all politicians and bureaucrats. Like corporate and big companies are busy in cost cutting our government should all do the same instead of treating all leaders for doing nothing.
Global/United States recession and painful economic slowdown affects are heading towards India now: Over 50,000 IT professionals in the country may lose their jobs!!
It appears that Global/United States recession and painful economic slowdown affects are heading towards India now. India economic situation which is supposed to be in under control till now will remain in control during this global economics hard hitting period I just hope. Our government did bail out few industries earlier and now it seems like that our Pride IT & ITES industries also needs some bailout packages in coming days.
Yesterday Yahoo.com reported that Over 50,000 IT professionals in the country may lose their jobs over the next six months as the situation in the sector is expected to worsen due to the impact of global economic meltdown on the export-driven industry, a forecast by a union of IT Enabled Services warned.
I just hope this Global recession is not going to affect adversely Indian industries and we will be able to get out of this economic crunch and job losses things sooner and in a much better way. Keeping Finger Cross
