Land Rovers new Defender was potentially leaked again

first_img Checking the tech in the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover… 2018 Range Rover Velar: Effortless SUV elegance on- and off-road Post a comment 2:21 34 Photos 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport packs on the updates Now, we don’t know much in the way of details about the new Defender, but it looks to be a wildly different animal than the beloved off-roader that it’s replacing. For some people, namely the ones who couldn’t abide by the fix-on-a-fix crudeness of the original, that’s probably a good thing. For others, that rough charm was what made them fall in love with arguably Land Rover’s most iconic shape.When asked for confirmation as to whether this was indeed the new Defender, Land Rover’s representatives said only, “Land Rover is aware of an unofficial image in circulation. Through the development of any new vehicle many design options are considered. We will not comment any further at this time.”Land Rover is planning on giving the world its first real look at the new Defender at the Frankfurt motor show this September.

Economic Survey 2017 makes interesting observations on Air India

first_imgAir India, the state-run carrier, found an indirect mention in the 319-page Economic Survey 2017, but it may not bring cheers to the approximately 20,000 employees of the airline. Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian was not happy with efforts to make it “world class.” Read: Air India hits back after being ranked ‘third-worst performing’ airlineAir India had earned an operating profit of Rs 105 crore in 2015-16, the first time since its merger with Indian Airlines about nine years ago; the ailing airline had incurred net loss of Rs 2,636 crore in the preceding financial year. The carrier’s total income rose to Rs 20,526 crore in 2015-16.”The most well-known example is the difficulty of privatising public enterprises, even for firms where economists have made strong arguments that they belong in the private sector. Consider the civil aviation sector. Defying history, there is still the commitment to make the perennially unprofitable public sector airline ‘world class.’ Moreover, policy reform in the sector has been animated as much by an interventionist as liberalising spirit, reflected for example in restrictions on pricing,” Subramanian observed.A few days ago, the national carrier’s 20,900 employees had reasons to cheer after it was announced that they would get a hike of 2 percent, lifting the salary freeze imposed in 2012.”In view of the operating profit of the company for the financial year 2015-16, it has been decided that yearly increment rate for all categories of permanent employees of Air India and its employees posted in subsidiaries will be applicable at 2%,” the Mint quoted A Jayachandran, executive director, finance, as writing to his employees on January 19, 2017. Air India Express, the budget carrier of Air India, recorded net profit of Rs 415 crore for six months ending September 2016, while revenues stood at Rs 1,897 crore.Air India’s share in the domestic passenger traffic is about 13.5 percent, with the market leader being budget carrier IndiGo.last_img read more
