CRISIL Assigns‘A+/SAtable’ Rating for Manappuram Home Finance Pvt. Ltd.

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 26th October:- Leading credit rating agency CRISIL has assigned its “A+/stable” credit rating to the long term bank loan facility of Manappuram Home Finance Private Ltd (MHF). The rating reflects managerial and financial support received from the parent Manappuram Finance Ltd. and adequate capitalisation. 
According to CRISIL, Manappuram Home Finance is adequately capitalised for the expected scale of business following infusion of capital of Rs.55 crore in fiscal 2016, taking its total paid up capital to Rs.100 crore. Additional infusions are expected to support capital adequacy and keep the gearing at around 5 times over the medium term. These rating strengths are partially offset by a small scale of operations with a limited track record, a modest earnings profile, and exposure to inherent risks relating to the affordable housing finance segment.
The expectation of support from the parent is driven by the strategic importance of the company to the Manappuram group in diversification of its financial product suite. The business is scalable and is expected to grow materially over the medium term. Manappuram Finance Ltd. holds 100% of the equity in Manappuram Home Finance. The parent has infused growth capital and will infuse additional capital as and when required. Furthermore, its Managing Director, V. P. Nandakumar, along with another director, is represented on the board of the company. CRISIL believes Manappuram Home Finance will continue to receive strong financial and managerial support from its parent, while maintaining adequate capitalisation, over the medium term.

The Junkyard Project is a unique take on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan by MTV to mobilize the youth to take a stand on cleanliness and take on the challenge of turning dirt into art. MTV tied up with 300 colleges and mobilized the ‘Junkyard Army’ of over 30,000 students across India, who got together to clean up neighbourhoods and beautify 300 junk spaces as live music motivated them. Now, MTV along with -the King of Indie-pop, Mika has created the adrenalin fuelled ‘Dunk That Junk’ anthem to give this young army a pumping new war cry! The ‘Dunk that junk’ anthem by Mika is a total dance worthy number and will make young people get up and get cleaning.

On his quirky composition for MTV The Junkyard Project, Mika Singh said that it is extremely fulfilling to compose an anthem that brings the youth of the country together for a good cause. It is heartening to see a iconic youth brand such as MTV stepping in to help make India clean through an exciting initiative such as MTV The Junkyard Project. Keeping in line with MTV’s efforts, the anthem ‘Dunk that Junk’ has a very young appeal making the whole cleaning process a lot more fun and exciting. He hopes the anthem reaches out to a lot of youngsters and serves its purpose of motivating them to do their bit for India.

Police Use Water Cannons on Punjab Youth Congress Protestors

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 26th October:- Workers of Punjab Youth Congress (PYC) headed by their president, Amarpreet Singh Lally, protested against the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) government which failed to deliver justice to Behbal Kalan firing victims who were staging peaceful protest against the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib last year. Youth Congress demanded the time bound CBI probe in the matter. Senior congress leader Harish Chaudhary also came to support the youth brigade of the party and pledged their solidarity for the cause. Police resorted to mild lathicharge and used water cannons on members of (PYC) leaving few injured.
Many of them including the president of PYC Amarpreet Singh Lally were detained by the Police while they were marching towards Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s house from Congress Youth Bhawan, Sector 15 in Chandigarh.
Amarpreet Singh Lally said that Badals who claimed to be sole guardians of Sikhism in Punjab should resign as they have failed to take action against the culprits who were responsible for the series of sacrilegious incidents last year which created a crisis for the state.
Condemning the insensitive attitude of father-son who are running the government in Punjab, Amarpreet Singh Lally said that the Badal government failed to nip the trouble in the bud following which a spate of incidents of sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib surfaced. The situation went bad to worse after two persons died in police firing in Behbal Kalan village in Faridkot district on October 14. The real culprits are out of reach even after one year. Nothing short of arrest of guilty cops would sooth the sentiments of the family and Sikh community.   
Series of desecration incidents of the holy book Guru Granth Sahib took place across Punjab which sparked protests and disrupted communal harmony in the state in October 2015 last year. 
Amarpreet Singh Lally said that the issue caused immense pain to Sikhs living in India and abroad. The law and order situation in Punjab deteriorated as the miscreants were having free hand and state government failed to control the situation. Resident of village Sarwan, Gurjit Singh and Behbal Khurd’s resident Krishan Bhawan had died in police firing that had been ordered to disperse people who were protesting over the sacrilege of Sikh’s holy book Guru Granth Sahib.
Among those who participated in the protest also included Dhanwant Jimmy Patiala, Dalveer Singh (Goldy) Khangura, Gurkeemat Singh Sidhu, Sarita Sharma, Kamaljeet Brar, Barinder Singh Dhillon, Vikramjit Singh Pehalwan, Gurmukh Chahal, Barinder Singh Dhaliwal, Sarvjeet Brar, Aarika Kanwar, Daaman Bajwa, Poonam Kangra, Sandeep Bhatia, Avjinder Singh Kala, Rahul Sidhu, Simar Gill and Amanpal Singh Dhanoa.
