PVR Inox opens second standalone IMAX theatre

Posted By: Vishal Maurya Posted On: Sep 08, 2023
This launch marks the opening of the fifth IMAX in Delhi and the second standalone IMAX theatre in India.

Multiplex chain PVR Inox has launched its second standalone IMAX theatre in Delhi’s Paras Cinema at Nehru Place. This launch marks the opening of the fifth IMAX in Delhi and the second standalone IMAX theatre in India.

With this opening, the new cinema will take PVR INOX's foothold in New Delhi to a total of 27 cinemas across 108 screens and its presence in North India to a total of 457 screens in 103 properties.

“It is a proud moment for us to finally re-open Paras Cinema right in the heart of south Delhi after a gap of 15 years. This opening also marks the launch of the second standalone IMAX theatre in India, after Priya. We are happy that we were able to play our part in remodeling one of the largest single screen theatres in Delhi into a modern- day truly immersive cinematic experience like IMAX living up to the expectations of today's insightful audience," Ajay Bijli, managing director, PVR Inox said in a statement.

Last month, PVR Inox had opened its first standalone IMAX theatre at Priya Cinema, a popular landmark in New Delhi and one of the first PVR properties in the country. Unlike other IMAX cinemas that are housed along with regular formats, this is the first time that an IMAX theatre is taking over an individual single screen cinema. Tickets to the 316-seater will be priced anywhere between ₹350 and ₹600 depending upon the film, day and show timing. Another such property is slated to come up, in Mumbai's Eros Cinema.

PVR Inox operates 230 premium screens across the country and the investment per screen ranges from ₹3 crore to ₹8 crore.

IMAX offers a 70-mm motion picture film format, and projection system, wherein screen image width is greater than the height of a screen. The American film industry makes at least 20 films per year in the IMAX format. Local Indian films, across languages, too are increasingly taking to the same. Over the past few months, Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan and Ajay Devgn's Bholaa were released in the format.

DGCA rules out intervening in dispute between Akasa Air and its pilots

Posted By: Jogendra Kumar Posted On: Sep 24, 2023
An aircraft operated by Akasa Air prepares to land at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai (Bloomberg)

India's aviation authorities have ruled out intervening in a dispute between Akasa Air and its pilots after the budget carrier accused the regulator of inaction, a legal filing shows.

Over 40 of Akasa's 450 pilots quit without serving their notice in recent weeks, and the airline has sued some of them and challenged Indian authorities in court for not acting on its requests to deal with alleged pilot "misconduct". The airline has also warned of a shut down due to the crisis.

India mandates a notice period of 6-12 months for pilots which some pilot organisations are challenging in court. Akasa argues its contractual obligations with pilots remain in force, and is suing the regulator for not intervening in the public interest.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and the aviation ministry in a Sept. 22 filing at the Delhi High Court said Akasa's plea should be thrown out as the regulator is unable to interfere in the matter.

The DGCA "does not have any power or delegated authority to interfere in any employment contract," it said.

Akasa, which has previously said it was in discussion with the DGCA, did not respond to a request for comment on the new filing, which has been seen by Reuters.

A DGCA official declined to comment.

Akasa has accused the DGCA of being "unwilling to take any action" which resulted in "significant financial and operational hardship" to the airline

The pilot resignations caused 632 flight cancellations in August, according to Akasa, an estimated 18% of the roughly 3,500 flights the airline usually operates in a month.

The DGCA contested that position in its court filing, saying it "categorically denies" that Akasa "provided any documents or reasons" in respect of cancellation as a result of pilot exits.

Sharing data, it said only 1.17% of Akasa's flights were cancelled in August.

The 6,000 member Federation of Indian Pilots have also responded to Akasa's plea, saying flight cancellation numbers were "unsubstantiated" and that the DGCA can not interfere in the dispute.

"Alleged mass resignation of pilots ... also serves as an indication of employee discontent," the federation said.

iPhone 15 sales take off

Posted By: Ajay Rawat Posted On: Sep 23, 2023
Demand for the priciest iPhones costing as much as ?2 lakh remains much lower than that for standard iPhones. (Bloomberg)

Sales of Apple’s iPhone 15 series smartphones kicked off on a strong note in India on Friday, with at least three retailers complaining of a shortage of top end Pro and Pro Max models.

“We are seeing strong first-day sales of the new iPhone 15 and 15 Plus. However, we haven't managed to fully cash in on the general demand, as supplies of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are short right now," said a multi-brand phone retailer from Kolkata, requesting anonymity.

Similar shortages were reported from Delhi and Mumbai as well. A major multi-brand retailer in Delhi said that sales of the iPhone 15 series on the first day were “better than last year's", though the Pro models quickly went out of stock.

Following last year's iPhone 14 launch as well, there were limited supplies of the top models in November and December, leading to long waiting times. However, the previous shortage was sparked by a covid-19 outbreak in the iPhone factories in China, which doesn't trouble the supply chain any more.

However, retailers attributed the iPhone Pro stock-outs to poor supply, not excess demand. Demand for the the priciest iPhones costing as much as ₹2 lakh remains much lower than that for standard iPhones.

“Demand for the iPhone 15 Pro series is much less than the standard iPhone 15 models—for every 10 Pro iPhones sold, we're seeing orders for at least 80 standard models," the Kolkata-based retailer said.

This is in line with historical demand for the iPhone Pro models in India. According to data from market researcher International Data Corp. (IDC) India, the Pro models typically account for around 15% of all iPhone sales in the country, and it's the same this year as well.

The retailer, however, added that Apple has been more proactive about supplies this year. “Our second and third batch of orders are already in line—the second order for supplies is set to be approved today itself, while the third round is expected to be approved and processed by Apple by Monday. Until last year, this used to take up nearly 10 days for every round of orders," he said.

Manish Khatri, a partner at Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom, however, said overall demand is tepid. “Supplies of the Pro iPhones are low, leading to the devices being out of stock at the moment. But, this is not due to higher-than expected demand. More consumers are inquiring about the older series of Apple's iPhones, and they are likely to await the rollout of festive season offers before we see consumer demand ramp up," Khatri said.

An email query sent to Apple remained unanswered. Analysts expect the company to record its highest-ever shipments of over 9 million units of its iPhones in India this year. Even though this is still around a third of the overall shipments of market leader Samsung, it is expected to help Apple potentially capture the top spot in smartphone market revenue in India this year.

Apple's revenue market share is expected to be driven by its high average selling price (ASP) of its smartphones, which exceed ₹80,000 per unit sold, as compared with an industry average of around ₹20,000 per unit. On 4 August, Apple Inc.'s chief executive Tim Cook said the company achieved “strong double digits" growth to report record revenue in India for the June quarter. “We also opened our first two retail stores during the quarter. And it's, of course, early going currently, but they're currently beating our expectations in terms of how they're doing," Cook said.

Considering leaving Parliament

Posted By: Pawan George Posted On: Sep 22, 2023
BSP MP Danish Ali

On BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri's remarks, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Danish Ali told reporters that he was considering leaving the Parliament. Danish Ali wrote to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla regarding the BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri's communal remarks in the Lok Sabha adding that it was "heartbreaking" to him as a minority member.

Bidhuri's communally insensitive remarks, made during the discussion on the Chandrayan-3 Mission in Lok Sabha, have been expunged from the proceedings.

Breaking down, tearing up while talking to media, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Danish Ali said, “When this is the condition of an elected member like me then what will be the condition of a normal person."

The BSP MP said that he is considering leaving the Parliament, “I hope, I will get justice, Speaker will conduct an enquiry or else with a heavy heart, I'm also thinking of leaving this Parliament because this can't be tolerated."

"Is this why we are elected, is this why our ancestors sacrificed their lives for freedom... they (BJP) just did not insult me and my followers but they insulted the whole nation... now let's see if BJP is taking any action against Ramesh Bidhuri or if he will be promoted and included in the central cabinet of ministers...maybe it has become a competition among BJP leaders to make such statements not just outside but even inside the Parliament" Danish Ali added.

Movie theatres announce National Cinema Day on 13 October

Posted By: Preeti Dabar Posted On: Sep 21, 2023
Movie theatres announce National Cinema Day on 13 October, tickets to cost ?99

The Multiplex Association of India (MAI) and cinemas across the country will celebrate October 13 as National Cinema Day, offering movie tickets for ₹99 per admission. The offer will not apply to recliners and premium formats like IMAX or 4DX.

National Cinema Day this year will unfold across more than 4000 participating screens, including chains like PVR Inox, Cinepolis, Miraj, Citypride, Asian, Mukta A2, Movie Time, WAVE, M2K, Delite, and others. The event had seen admissions of 6.5 million when held in September last year, highest ever for a single day while trade experts estimated box office collections for the day to have touched around Rs. 48 crore across films in various languages with tickets priced at Rs. 75.

Mystery thriller Chup: Revenge of the Artist had collected in the range of Rs. 2.75-3 crore on its first day which could have been its opening weekend had it not been for National Cinema Day, according to trade website Box Office India. Meanwhile, superhero flick Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva had earned Rs. 8.50 crore, making for the second highest third Friday of all time for a film in the Hindi language, after SS Rajamouli's Baahubali 2: The Conclusion though the latter was originally in Telugu and only dubbed in Hindi. The Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer had clocked in almost 14 lakh admissions which was just 20-25% less than its first day admissions.

“The one day initiative has seen a massive response from Indian moviegoers, with shows starting as early as 6.00 am due to an unprecedented demand for movie tickets. Audiences of all ages came together and the country's cinema operators reported house-full shows throughout the day, making 23 September the highest attended day of the year," MAI had said in a statement last year.

The MAI is a nationwide group of cinema operators that advocates on behalf of the cinema exhibition sector. It works with regulatory bodies and industry partners nationwide to highlight opportunities, and address various challenges faced by the cinema exhibition sector.

The cybersecurity skills shortage India faces

Posted By: Vanshika Pathak Posted On: Sep 18, 2023
Cyberattacks entail a financial cost.

Recent alleged cyberattacks on the Delhi Police website ahead of the G20 summit are yet another reminder of the growing and ever-present threat to digital security. In fact, several hackers are likely to have attacked India's digital infrastructure during the summit, claims CloudSEK, a cyber-security company.

Between 2020 and 2022, India averaged 1.3 million cybersecurity incidents a year, according to data presented in Parliament based on incidents reported to or tracked by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), a government nodal agency. The actual number could be higher. Additionally, almost 67% of Indian government and essential service entities reported a 50% increase in disruptive cyberattacks in 2022-23, says a new report by Palo Alto Networks, a US-based cybersecurity company.

Cyberattacks entail a financial cost. Last year, the Official Cybercrime Report by Cybersecurity Ventures projected this cost globally at $8 trillion for 2023 and $10.5 trillion by 2025. The average cost of a data breach in India this year has been $2.18 million, according to IBM's annual Cost of a Data Breach Report. According to the report, 28% of these data breaches led to the loss of data spanning multiple types of environments, such as public cloud, private cloud, or on-premises, indicating that attackers were able to compromise multiple environments while avoiding detection.

In 2020, India took an average 230 days to identify a breach, and another 83 days to contain it, compared to 186 and 51 days in the US, and 128 and 32 days in Germany.

Critical costs

For India, the cost of cyberattacks is critical, given its digital ambitions. The number of internet users is expected to grow from 692 million in 2022 to 900 million by 2025, according to the Internet and Mobile Association of India. Digitization is increasing. For example, earlier this month, the Union Cabinet cleared ₹7,210 crore for the third phase of the eCourts project, which digitizes court records and shifts more court processes online. The extent of digitization is already visible in payments. The number of transactions over UPI (unified payments interface) crossed 10 billion in August as users sent about ₹15 trillion over the network.

Cyberattacks can undermine trust in the system, and make the transition harder. For example, users who lose even a small amount of money to cybercrime might be driven to withdraw from digital transactions, even dissuade others. Cyberattacks on the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, in the past year raised concerns about medical records. According to the IBM report, the cost of a data breach in healthcare is the highest—almost double that of the financial sector. "Over the past three years, the average cost of a data breach in healthcare has grown 53.3%, increasing more than $3 million compared to the average cost of $7.13 million in 2020," it said.

Skills gap

While cybersecurity will remain a cat-and-mouse game, with hackers and security professionals trying to catch up with each other, investments in technology can help identify and contain breaches faster. It also entails the availability of cybersecurity skills. India faces the second-highest shortage in its cybersecurity workforce, with a seven-fold increase in the past year, according to a “Cybersecurity Workforce Study" by ISC2, an association of professionals in the field.

Human resource services company Teamlease estimates a 30% shortage of cybersecurity skills in India in 2023. Demand for specific skills within cybersecurity is also expected to change. According to a survey by the Data Security Council of India, application security, cloud security and data forensics were the current top three areas where there was a gap. In five years, cybersecurity professionals surveyed believed artificial intelligence would top the list. The cyberthreat is not going anywhere.

Air India Mumbai-Delhi Delayed for 5 Hrs Due to

Posted By: Vishal Maurya Posted On: Sep 17, 2023

An Air India flight scheduled to travel from Mumbai to Delhi has been delayed for five hours, Shiv Sena Arvind Sawant shared in a social media post.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Sawant said that flight AI888 was supposed to take off at 7 pm. The airline responded that the flight would depart at 11:55 pm.

Sawant said, “#AirIndia Flight AI888 Mumbai to Delhi was supposed to take off at 7.00. Passengers boarded 1.30 hour back! If there is any technical issue why at first instance officials allowed boarding? @airindia still not ready to improve!!! "

The airline quickly responded to his post saying that the flight was delayed due to operational reasons. “We regret the inconvenience caused due to the delay. As per the current status, it will depart at 2355 hrs. We appreciate your continued patience", they added.

Sawant further asked the carrier if the flight was going to be so late then why it did not arrange any other aircraft.

Earlier on September 14, several flights to and from Mumbai airport witnessed delays after a private jet skidded off the runaway amid heavy rain. The runway, which was closed for some time, later opened for operations post DGCA clearance.

Eight people were injured following Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) witnessed a runway excursion today involving a Learjet 45 aircraft VT-DBL, operating a flight from Vishakhapatnam to Mumbai.

All eight persons including the pilot and co-pilot, 1 crew member and 5 passengers were hospitalised.

Following the incident, many flights were diverted to other airports due to the closure of the runway at Mumbai airport.

Summit without consensus declaration would have been death sentence for G20

Posted By: Pawan George Posted On: Sep 12, 2023
Germany?s Ambassador to India Philipp Ackermann.

New Delhi: Germany’s Ambassador to India Philipp Ackermann on Tuesday said that the failure to reach a consensus at the recently concluded G20 Delhi Summit would have been a death sentence for the grouping.

Speaking at a press briefing, Ackermann said that the Delhi Declaration was a “fabulous text" and that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz was “very satisfied" with the outcomes of the recently concluded summit.

However, many in the Western world have taken a different view. It has been argued that the text of the G20 New Delhi Declaration represented a significant concession to Russia, since the country was not directly condemned for its invasion of Ukraine in the text. In 2022, the Bali Declaration issued under Indonesia's G20 presidency had said that “most members" condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Ukraine's foreign ministry, too, voiced its dissatisfaction with the Delhi Declaration, while Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov thanked India and emerging economies for preventing attempts to “Ukrainise" the G20 agenda. Ackermann pushed back against the idea that the Delhi Declaration represented a victory for Russia.

“Certainly Russia has not been mentioned as a country, but I would say it has Russia written all over it," said Ackermann, pointing to three paragraphs in the Delhi Declaration that he says refer directly to Russia.

Ackermann acknowledged that the statement would have looked different if authored by Western countries. He also said that the language on climate change was “satisfactory", even if it was not all that may have been hoped for.

“But when you see that you have to compromise in this very heterogeneous group of countries, it's a fabulous text," he said of the declaration.

Ackermann also said that negotiations confirmed the isolation of Russia since the negotiating dynamics were, in his words, 18 countries arrayed against two: Russia and China.

Feeling Disgusted

Posted By: Aditya Gogoi Posted On: Sep 12, 2023

In what comes as a shocking incident, a Delhi woman shared how she was sexually harassed in a DTC bus while traveling. Taking to Reddit as an anonymous user, the woman shared her scary story which has now stunned people on the social media platform. The woman explained that while she was traveling in a crowded bus, a man in his 50s was standing right behind her. She suddenly felt something hard trying to hit her. For some time, she thought that it was a mistake. However, when it happened repeatedly only then she could make out what was actually happening.

“I moved forward a bit. Then same thing happened, I understood what it is, I was shocked for a bit,” she explained. Further, she gathered some courage and asked the man to step back in a high pitch.

“At that moment, the driver put break and everyone started learning. So, people got distracted, I was loud enough that at least all the people near me would listen, but bad luck. After I shouted at him, he ignored it completely and moved behind, like I was talking to someone else,” she wrote.

Ever since the incident took place, the woman explains that she has been feeling disgusted. “I should have scolded him badly with cuss words. Should have been loud enough to get him kicked out of the bus. But I just kept thinking about what just happened. I was shocked,” she mentioned.

Here is the viral post:

The incident has left many people in shock online. “Exactly no matter how you think it….when the shit happens you are stuck like a deer in front of a headlight and the shitty feeling after the incident eats you from inside which is more of a disappointment in oneself,” commented a Reddit user. Another person wrote, “This comment. I was in the same situation. I guy was bumping his shoulder to mine constantly at bumps in a crowded bus. I told him to keep off but he said there isn't space. He then later started moving behind me. I felt so helpless. But I decided later that next time I will speak up. Loudly and shamelessly like some aunties do. The only way is to practise and not give a damn what others say.”

Many women shared how they have been through similar situations.
