  2. 2. After China’s Huawei clinched a plum 3G network equipment contract from Tata Teleservices, it was rival ZTE Corp’s turn to land a 300-crore contract on Friday to supply WiMax systems to state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) for its broadband rollout. <br />The Union home ministry had issued umpteen warnings that foreign telecom equipment vendors , especially the Chinese, had the capability of installing spyware and malware to monitor voice and data traffic and disable networks.<br />
  3. 3. Earlier, both Huawei and ZTE had complained that numerous contracts allotted to them by phone firms had not been approved since February 18 even though the Centre all along maintained that there was no official blanket ban on import of telecom gear from China.<br />Incidentally, both BSNL and stateowned MTNL were allocated broadband wireless access (BWA) airwaves before private players won them in the June 2010 auctions.<br />The defence ministry had pointed out to the telecom department that BSNL’s proposed Wimaxbased broadband services could be a potent security threat as they could interfere with the mobile satellite services (MSS) being used by the armed forces.<br />

  7. 7. Crossovers, or multi-utility vehicles, are positioned between larger sports utility vehicles and smaller hatchbacks, mixing the silky comforts of a car with the rough and tough built of an off roader.<br />The segment, dominated by Innova and Mahidra & Mahindra’s Xylo, grew 41% to 1.5 lakh vehicles, or close to 10% of the country’s passenger vehicle market, last financial year.<br />Also, crossovers are priced lower, Rs 6-11 lakh, than SUVs coming at Rs 8-25 lakh and more. <br />

Till recently, PET scrap was considered worthless even by rag pickers.<br />MrChauhan stepped in and built a partnership with rag pickers, announced attractive prices for PET garbage, commissioned collection centres, purchased about 5000 kg every month, processed it and sold it to companies like Reliance Industries. <br />His intervention birthed an entire PET recycling ecosystem that now collects about 1,200 tonnes of PET waste from Mumbai’s streets every day, according to industry estimates. Another 700 tonnes are collected from the rest of Maharashtra. <br />
