    Zoho founder Sridhar Vembu spoke to ET NOW's Chandra R Srikanth, days after being conferred a Padma Shri...

Vembu built a global software product firm Zoho, valued at over a billion dollars, without raising a rupee. In 2019, he moved from Silicon Valley to a village in Tenkasi district in Tamil Nadu, as part of an effort to empower rural communities, something that Zoho has been trying to do for many years now.

    TVS Motor Q3 Preview: Strong volume growth expected

    TVS Motor is likely to deliver a steady set of numbers for the December quarter. Sales are seen at Rs. 5300 cr vs Rs. 4125.5 cr, up 28.5% YoY. We expect strong volume growth to be offset by higher raw material costs and lack of export incentives. ET Now poll sees PAT figure at Rs 227 cr and EBITDA at Rs. 470 cr. Despite better scale, benign currency and cost reduction efforts, margins are likely to be flattish YoY due to adverse mix, higher input costs and loss of export incentives (MEIS scheme). Margins are seen at 8.9% vs 8.8% YoY. Realisations though are likely to be supported by price increases taken and lower discounts. Street will be watching out for demand projection for 2021, guidance on margin trajectory and exports segment, along with an update on inventory, supply chain situation and new product launches.

    How can Budget 2021 revive the pandemic-hit economy? | ET Now Explains

    While income tax slab rejigs are highly anticipated, the Government can only lower taxes when it has resources in its kitty. Unfortunately, the Government's resources are running dry at the moment due to the pandemic-induced lockdown. With vaccine being a public good and a massive vaccination drive underway, the demand on Government's finances is immense.  To create income support, Government needs to kill two birds with one stone. For instance, by commissioning the building of roads can boost the infrastructure sector as well as create jobs for the unskilled labourers, those at the bottom of the pyramid.  So, every budget has to be framed in the context of the macroeconomy. When the economy is growing at 8-9%, the Government can spend liberally and can afford to cut taxes. But, in the current context, it is going to be a tough call for Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. So, people need to tone down their expectations, says ET NOW's Consulting Editor Mythili Bhusnurmath, as the Government's hands are tied.
