Shukla, a practising company secretary, as the scrutiniser in terms of the Companies Act to conduct the process of the postal ballot. (II) According to proxy advisory firm Institutional Investor Advisory Services (IiAS), the delisting floor price at ₹87.25 per share is ‘unfair’ and shareholders ‘should have ideally got a base price of ₹225 per share’. However, the final offer price for the delisting proposal will be determined in the reverse book-building process. The proposal will now be put to a shareholder vote and needs to be approved by at least 66.7% of the minority shareholders. (III) The board of directors of Vedanta Ltd. on Monday approved a proposal to delist the company. The nod came after it reviewed the due diligence report submitted by SBI Capital Markets.

Telecom tariffs still unsustainable: Airtel (I) We believe that an ARPU of ₹154 is inadequate to turn a reasonable Return on Capital as a company and remain hopeful that ARPU will get to ₹200 in the short term and eventually to ₹300 which is where it should be for a business like ours. Of course, even at this level of ARPU, we believe, we will be very well-placed to serve all the lower end customers who may have the capacity to pay ₹100 or less,” Mr. Vittal said during a post-earning analysts call. (II) Even though the telecom industry has witnessed some ‘repairs’, more needs to be done on tariffs which are still ‘unsustainably low’, Gopal Vittal, MD and CEO, India & South Asia, Bharti Airtel said on Tuesday. The company, which on Monday had posted a loss of ₹5,237 crore for the January-March 2020 quarter due to an exceptional charge on account of reassessment of statutory dues, is hopeful of achieving an average revenue per user (ARPU) of ₹200 in the short-term, as against ₹154 in the reported quarter. This is against an ARPU of ₹135 in the October-December 2012 period, and ₹123 in the year-ago quarter. (III) The industry is very keen to have TRAI intervene in putting together a set of floor prices… all the responses have gone to TRAI and they haven’t taken a decision right now given the circumstances around COVID-19, but I do believe that this needs to get corrected sooner rather than later,” he said. The private telecom operators raised tariffs by up to 40% in December 2019. (a) only (II) (b) only (III) (c) both (I) and (III) (d) all (I), (II) and (III) (e) none of these Q3.

In case of services, the investment limit was: micro (up to Rs 10 lakh), small (Rs 10 lakh to Rs 2 crore), and medium (Rs 2 crore to Rs 5 crore). (III) While enumerating the details of the economic package, part of the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday (May 13) announced revisions in the definition of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME). As per the revised definition, any firm with an investment of up to ₹1 crore and turnover under ₹5 crore will be classified as ‘micro.’ A company with an investment of up to ₹10 crore and a turnover of up to ₹50 crore will be classified as ‘small’ and a firm with an investment of up to ₹20 crore and a turnover under ₹100 crore will be classified as ‘medium.

In the US, Walmart’s ecommerce business grew 74%, which along with increased in-store sales, pushed up the company’s revenue by 8.6% to $134.6 billion and net income by 4% to $4 billion in the first quarter. Despite the strong growth, Walmart said the pandemic had created a situation of “unprecedented variability”. (II) Doug McMillon, President and CEO of Walmart, said on a conference call with analysts that Flipkart’s operations were impacted by restrictions on sale of non-essential goods.
