Fowler-Reid leaves Sunday for fourth season in ANZ

first_imgSunshine Girls goal shooter, Jhaniele Fowler-Reid, will leave the island on Sunday for her fourth appearance in the ANZ Netball Championships. The 29 year-old Fowler-Reid will appear once again for the New Zealand-based team, Southern Steel. Fowler Reid is expecting another exciting season. “I am looking forward to an exciting year, as it will be a new coach and new management, so I know it is going to be a lot of fun, and I know I will do very well”, said Fowler-Reid. Some of the top netballers in the world, including Jamaica’s Romelda Aiken, who is a member of the Queensland Firebirds, are playing in the ANZ Championships. “It is good once again to team up with some of the top players in the world. It is very challenging but I do enjoy it,” said Fowler-Reid.

PSBs continue with 180 days to resolve Jet issue

first_imgNew Delhi: Public sector banks, led by State Bank of India, have given themselves 180 days to resolve the Jet Airways account even though the time limit has become irrelevant post Supreme Court order that quashed an earlier RBI circular on debt resolution. Official sources in the Finance Ministry said that banks have informed the ministry that they were not ready to wait endlessly to restore health of the beleaguered airline and if attempts to bring in a strategic investor fails or is not completed by June 30, lenders may immediately initiate bankruptcy proceedings against Jet. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”All attempts are being made to see that Jet Airways does not fail and its operations are maintained albeit on a smaller scale. Banks, including SBI and Punjab National Bank (PNB) have already decided to provide interim funding support of Rs 1,500 crore to Jet,” a source in the finance ministry said. “Now effort is on to bring in a strategic investor. But if there are no satisfactory bids, banks would not wait anymore and refer the airline to National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) for resolution,” the source added. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostJet first defaulted on loan repayment on December 31. Going by this, the 180 day period from default will end on June 30. Once the matter lands in NCLT, banks get another 180 days to find a resolution of the stressed asset with an extension of 90 days, if required. Post this, if banks fail to resolve the account, liquidation process starts. “We will go by the 180-day deadline that was being followed as per now defunct RBI circular. With each day the problem at Jet seems to be multiplying and if a resolution is not achieved immediately, there is no point to drag the issue any further but to take the account for bankruptcy. Otherwise, the airline account can become a further drag on the banks,” said an official of public sector bank asking not to be named. The Supreme Court on Tuesday quashed the February 12, 2018 circular of RBI that asked banks to start resolution of an account even if there was one day default in repayment of loans. This resolution would have to be completed in 180 days failing which it would be mandatory upon banks to refer it for bankruptcy proceedings. Following this order from the apex court, it was widely believed that banks would use extra time now available with them for resolution. But for Jet, PSBs are in no mood for extended period of resolution. Meanwhile, the lenders on Saturday invited expression of interest (EoI) from investors looking to pick up majority stake in Jet. The EoI would have to be submitted by April 9. Extensions could be considered, if bids are not satisfactory. A statement issued on Thursday by a consortium of lenders led by the State Bank of India (SBI) said : “The lenders intend to pursue the bank-Led resolution plan for sale of stake in the company in a time-bound manner under the present legal and regulatory framework and intend to invite expressions of interest.” Jet Airway’s former Chairman Naresh Goyal has said he has cooperated fully and facilitated the bank-led resolution programme for the company. On March 25, Goyal had stepped down from the board of the airline and ceded majority control to the SBI-led consortium. Under the debt resolution plan, the lenders would inject up to Rs 1,500 crore working capital into the airline and convert their debt into equity, to revive the airline and then sell their stake in it. The airline owes over Rs 8,000 crore to lenders. At present, the airline is hard-pressed for funds. It is expected to receive the first tranche of the Rs 1,500 crore promised by banks as part of the debt resolution plan. Industry sources informed that the first tranche of fund is expected in a day or two. However, without further funding the airline’s fleet size is expected to shrink further. It has already shrunk to 26. Jet Airways has been struggling with cash flows for the past six months because of rising fuel costs and intense competition. It has even delayed payment to lessors, airport operators and oil marketing companies besides a part of its workforce to keep the company running. On Wednesday evening, the airline informed employees that salaries for March will be delayed. Salaries are pending since January.last_img read more

Shiv Sena advises BJP to ‘speak less’ on Rafale deal

first_imgMumbai: The Shiv Sena Friday advised its ally BJP to “speak less” on the Rafale deal, in which the Congress has alleged corruption, cautioning that unwanted statements may increase troubles for the national party.The Sena also said the ban on NaMo TV could have been avoided had the BJP been satisfied with the coverage being given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign rallies on electronic channels. The Uddhav Thackeray-led party sought to corner its senior ally over the recent clash between BJP workers in the presence of Maharashtra minister Girish Mahajan at a public rally in Jalgaon, where the party has changed its Lok Sabha candidate. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details”The shocking video (of the clash) was seen across the country. The BJP inducted goons in the party and turned them into ‘Valmikis’. However here, the experienced Valmikis turned into goons and indulged in violence. “This is not only a blot on the campaigning of `mahayuti’ (the BJP-Sena alliance), but the time has come for the BJP to clarify its stand,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’. The Sena said the BJP, which calls itself a party with a difference, cannot justify this violence and dismiss the incident as one reflecting diverse opinions. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday”At least on the Rafale issue, one needs to shed arrogance and talk with patience. Right from the defence minister to other leaders, people (in the BJP) are speaking whatever they like. “This may increase troubles for the party, and therefore we advise that the lesser spoken, the better,” the Sena said. The Marathi daily noted the Supreme Court Wednesday rejected the government’s contention that sensitive documents accessed by the media on the Rafale deal can’t be treated as evidence and said it would examine the papers while reviewing its December 14 order giving a clean chit to the contract. The Sena said along with the ban on the release of a biopic on Modi; the Election Commission has also disallowed airing of political content on NaMo TV.last_img
