In 2015, India’s rank was 142 while in the next three years it got elevated to the ranks of 130, 100 and 77 respectively. The Centre wants India to occupy its position among the first 50 countries and with the improvement in position, the possibility of foreign investment in India will also shoot up. To reach the achievement it is mandatory for the states to perform well and improve their business investments. The Centre has decided to hold competitions among the states in terms of possible investment destinations.

It was learnt that the Centre has expressed satisfaction over the Bengal government’s initiative to bring about administrative transparency and e-governance. It may be mentioned that after coming to power in 2011, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had announced a slew of measures to improve the investment scenario in Bengal which included the banning of industrial strikes and protests. This resulted in bringing loss of man-days to zero. The state government also set up a land bank from where industrialists can buy plots at market price. The improved law and order situation has also helped to woo the investors. The state government has constructed two convention centres at New Town and in the coastal town of Digha. The Biswa Bangla Convention Centre in New Town is the biggest of its kind in the country. The Dighashree Bengal International Convention Centre was inaugurated by Mamata Banerjee last week. The state government holds the Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) to woo investors all over the world. The next edition of the BGBS will be held in 2021. Bengal is coming up as a major IT hub in the country. The state government has allotted 200 acres of land at New Town where IT parks will come up. Infosys has already started construction of its office complex on 50 acres of land and Wipro is also coming soon. At the Bantala Leather Complex, the tannery units are likely to generate jobs for 6 lakh people. The MSME industries have given a major boost to the state’s economy. Along with industry, the state government has also laid considerable emphasis on horticulture, floriculture and fish culture to help the rural folk become financially strong.last_img read more

Glowing orbs spotted hovering above Kansas authorities clueless as conspiracy theorists suspect

first_imgPixabayIn an interesting development, two glowing orbs were spotted in the skies of Kansas. The sighting soon went viral on online platforms, and even weather authorities are completely clueless about the bizarre sighting.The National Weather Service (NWS) wrote on Twitter that they literally have no explanation for the mysterious sighting. As NWS failed to give a proper explanation, several social media users started alleging that alien spaceships have reached the earth to monitor human activities. Some users even went a step ahead and assured that extraterrestrials are gearing up for an invasion.We honestly have no explanation for the floating objects over Kansas City.— NWS Kansas City (@NWSKansasCity) June 21, 2019Popular UFO researcher Scott C Waring also analyzed the clip, and he alleged that the government is trying to cover up realities of alien life.”Thousands of eyewitness in Kansas City saw huge UFO orbs in the sky over the city two days ago. Even the local news recorded a few and posted to Twitter what they had seen. This prompted DARPA to respond saying that they had released three lighter than air objects in the area. I believe since DARPA is a government agency that it is lying to the public and trying to cover up an actual UFO fleet over Kansas City. The US government will try anything and everything to cover up actual UFO sightings and here is 100% proof that they are doing it again here,” wrote Waring on his website ET Date Base.The new UFO sighting has been reported just a few days after United States president Donald Trump expressed his thoughts about extraterrestrial existence. While interacting with ABC, Trump revealed that he does not believe in aliens. It should be noted that Pentagon had earlier confirmed that they had carried out a secret investigative mission to unveil the secrets surrounding UFO sightings. Recently, several US Navy officials had also revealed that they saw flying objects speeding in hypersonic speed, and performing weird maneuvers on the skies.Even though several Navy officials suggested otherworldly possibilities, Leon Golub, a senior astrophysicist at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics claimed that extraterrestrial origin of these flying objects is very unlikely.  As per Golub, several factors that include atmospheric effects, and neurological overload from continuous flights could be the real cause of these sightings, especially among pilots.   In the meantime, a section of other conspiracy theorists had started arguing that these glowing orbs could be secret anti-gravity military vessels developed by superpowers like the United States, Russia or China. As per these conspiracy theorists, the flying orbs spotted in Kansas could be spying crafts sent by Russia or China to learn more about US geography and activities.last_img read more

Search For Motive In Austin Bombings Continues US Attorney Says

first_img Share JORGE SANHUEZA-LYON / KUTU.S. Attorney John Bash and other federal and local law enforcement officials provide an update into the Austin serial bombings investigation.A judge has dismissed a complaint against confessed Austin bomber Mark Conditt now that his body has been identified and released to his family, U.S. Attorney John Bash said today. The investigation into a motive is ongoing, he added.At an afternoon news conference with other law enforcement officials, Bash said there is no other suspect in last month’s bombings, which killed two people and seriously injured four others.“We are looking through very voluminous computer records to examine his intent and motivations,” Bash said, “and so there is still an ongoing investigation, and we do urge the public to remain vigilant about suspicious packages and to contact the APD if you notice a suspicious package.”He said there’s no reason to believe any additional bombs will be found, however. U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Lane unsealed an affidavit earlier Monday for an arrest warrant for Conditt, who killed himself in a car along I-35 in Round Rock as a SWAT team closed in on him March 21. The affidavit says all six bombs had elements in common, including shrapnel and the same type of battery holder bought by someone who appears to be Conditt using a credit card that belonged to him.It also says surveillance video shows a man who appears to be Conditt buying a “Drive Like Your Kids Here” sign like one used to conceal a bomb that injured two people in the Travis Country neighborhood. In the same transaction, the man bought gloves consistent with those worn by the person who sent two packages later revealed to contain bombs from a Sunset Valley FedEx store.  FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs said authorities were weighing the public’s desire to know what was on the bomber’s recorded confession against public safety concerns.“We are concerned that it could inspire other people to do other acts,” he said. “The subject in the audio confession says a number of statements that concern us and we just don’t want that to live forever on the Internet.”last_img read more

BJPs Rath Yatras aimed at stirring up communal passion in West Bengal

first_imgKolkata: The TMC Thursday charged that BJP’s proposed Rath Yatras in West Bengal were aimed at inciting communal passion in the state and accused the party of trying to divide the people along religious lines ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee said his party believes in constructive politics unlike the BJP which “only believes in destruction and dividing people”. He also referred to TMC’s fight to oust the 34-year-old Left regime in the state.

Les Moonves US media giant CBS Corp has extended c

first_imgLes MoonvesUS media giant CBS Corp has extended chief executive Leslie Moonves’ contract for an additional two years — meaning he will now remain in charge until at least 2021. Moonves, who joined CBS in 1995, will be 71 years-old at that time, though no one is ruling out the possibility of further extensions.Even if Moonves does decide to quit in 2021, his contract includes an attractive exit package, under which he will become a senior advisor to CBS for an additional five years. He also will have an option to form a production company financed by CBS.In terms of wages, Moonves earns a basic US$3.5 million (€2.8 million) a year.But in 2016 he also earned a US$32 million cash bonus in recognition of his successful stewardship of the firm. A shrewd operator, Moonves is widely acknowledged as having turned CBS around, transforming it into a market-leading network at a time of great disruption both for the industry and for his firm.Moonves became president and CEO of CBS Corp. in 2006 when the company was split from Viacom Inc. to become a stand-alone, publicly traded business. In 2016, Moonves was also named as chairman, replacing controlling shareholder Sumner Redstone, who has been in poor health recently.last_img read more
