Gandhi, Poverty, Taj Mahal, India

When they think of India they think of Gandhi and Taj Mahal, but when they think of Pakistan they think of nuclear, poverty and cricket, the people across the world said in a survey conducted by BBC.

In the survey conducted on the socio-economic perception on India and Pakistan after 60 years of independence from the British rule, the BBC found that the world also associated both countries with poverty.

In Pakistan's case, the respondents also associated it with the nuclear power.

The survey, conducted in collaboration with international research company Synovate across 20 countries in Europe, North and South America, Asia Pacific and Australia, questioned 12,670 respondents about their perceptions of India and Pakistan.

"It was conducted to coincide with the celebration surrounding India and Pakistan's 60th year of independence from Britain," the BBC said.

Interestingly, where French, Spaniards, Italians and Danes thought India topped in poverty on the planet, their Eastern counterparts Singaporeans, Japanese and Hong Kong nationals thought India to be a modern nation, high on development and technology.

Power Grid investors may make a killing

Retail and high net worth individuals (HNI), who had invested in the initial public offering of Power Grid Corporation of India (PGCIL), are expected to make a killing on the listing day, if the grey market premium on the stock is any indication. Brokers, who trade in the grey market, said bids of Rs 70-72 per share were doing the rounds late Friday compared with the issue price of Rs 52 per share.

The price band of the IPO was Rs 44-52 per share, and the company finalised the issue price at the upper end of the band on Friday. A Mumbai-based broker who tracks grey market prices of IPOs told ET that a high net worth investor who had borrowed money to invest in the IPO would have incurred a financing cost of roughly Rs 10 per share.

This number has been arrived at after taking into account the prevailing rate of interest for IPO financing (usually between 13% and 15%) and the number of times the non-institutional portion of the issue has been oversubscribed.
If the stock manages to hold on to its grey market premium till the listing day, investors stand to nearly double their money.

However, the premiums could change for the better or the worse by the time the stock is listed. For retail investors, the margin of profit could be much more due to lower cost of financing. The retail portion of the issue has been subscribed seven times.

Analysts attribute the overwhelming response to the PGCIL offer to its reasonable pricing. Most brokerages had recommended clients to subscribe to the issue and underscored factors like high revenue visibility, significant ramp up in transmission capacity, among others. PGCIL has received subscription of Rs 1,90,000 crore, a slice of which came from provident and retirement funds.

Investors who rarely put money into equity. Power Grid handles the transmission of as much as 45% of the power generated in India, making it the largest player in the sector.

Kalaignar TV starts

The DMK leadership backed Kalaignar TV, a Tamil satellite channel, began beaming its programmes from Saturday, the 99th birth anniversary of DMK founder late C N Annadurai and also 'Ganesh Chaturthi' day.

DMK patriarch and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, the brain behind the channel named 'Kalaignar,' as he is fondly called by his followers, in a message, said everybody was saying that all projects inaugurated by him had become a runaway success.

"But the promoters of some projects, which have become a huge success, have distanced themselves from me,' he said in an obvious reference to the Maran brothers, whose SUN-TV has become a household name in the state. The brothers had distanced themselves from the DMK due to problems between the families of Karunanidhi and the late Murasoli Maran.

In a bid to attract viewers, the channel had signed up leading film personalities like K Balachander, Bharathiraja, Kushboo and A V M Saravanan to provide programme content.

In another bid to outshine the SUN-TV newscast, the channel has drawn newspersons from the SUN group and timed its newscast half an hour ahead of SUN.

It has also got the telecast rights of the latest Tamil films like 'Mozhi', a small budget but runaway success, the high cost Rajinikant starrer 'Sivaji' and another huge hit 'Imsaiarasan'.

The inaugural day feast for viewers was telecast of 'Mozhi' and 'Imsaiarasan'.
