  • No Muslims, no single women: housing bias turning Indian cities into ghettos

    By Rina Chandran MUMBAI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - On the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump, an Indian real estate company ran an advertisement with the slogan 'Homes that don't discriminate', calling for an end to prejudice in India's housing market based on gender, religion or caste. Informal rules and discrimination by Indian landlords to keep out religious minorities and single people are eroding the multi-cultural nature of India's cities and dividing communities into ghettos, analysts say. "It's 2017 - and we're still encountering discrimination," said Rishi Dogra of NestAway Technologies that ran the ad.

  • SBI calls for raising income tax exemption limits

    Mumbai, Jan 23 (IANS) Presenting an agenda for the forthcoming Union Budget at a time when banks are flush with funds post-demonetisation, state-run SBI on Monday called for raising various income tax exemption limits to boost economic growth. "We expect an increase in personal income tax exemption limit from Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 3.0 lakh, increase in Section 80C exemption limit from current Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2 lakh, interest exemption on housing loan from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 3 lakh and at least reducing (if not abolishing) the lock-in period for bank fixed deposits from 5 years to 3 years for availing tax exemption," a State Bank of India (SBI) report said. "Such giveaways will cost Rs 35,300 crore, but we expect this to be more than balanced by IDS-2 (Income Declaration Scheme) revenue and cancelled note liabilities of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)," it said with reference to the recent demonetisation of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes.

  • Xiaomi executive Barra, who drove smartphone maker's global push, steps down

    By Cate Cadell BEIJING (Reuters) - Hugo Barra, the most prominent global executive at China's Xiaomi Inc, has left the smartphone maker citing health concerns and a new job, dealing a fresh setback to a firm that is struggling to recover ground ceded to rivals. In a post on Facebook on Monday, Barra, Xiaomi's vice president in charge of global operations and the face of its international expansion, said he was leaving the company after three-and-a-half years for a new project based in Silicon Valley. Xiaomi was briefly the world's most valuable startup with a valuation two years ago of $45 billion and had hopes to be China's equivalent of Apple Inc.
