Uber isn't considered "fit and proper" to operate in London



Uber isn't considered "fit and proper" to operate in London. Authorities denied the ride-hailing company’s request to renew its license to operate in the British capital, which expires on Sept 30. The company has 21 days to appeal and can continue to operate during that time. In a surprise decision, Transport for London declared “Uber’s approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility” when it comes to reporting crimes, submitting drivers’ medical certificates, and other issues. Uber says it has 3.5 million users and 40,000 drivers in the city.

The Aditya Birla Group will shut down its two-year-old online fashion portal abof.com on December 31



The Aditya Birla Group will shut down its two-year-old online fashion portal abof.com on December 31. The company was unable to figure out a way to “make money” as most shoppers tap online sellers that offer maximum discounts. The employees could be accommodated at other group companies such as Madura Garments or Pantaloons or quit and receive four-and-half months’ salary as compensation. Abof’s exit comes even as Flipkart and Amazon have lined up festive offers with discounts ranging from 40% to 90% as they seek volume and market domination — at the expense of profit. Indian e-tailers are expected to burn cash worth $400 million in discounts and offers in the September-December period.

Rs 389 cr Bihar dam collapses ahead of inauguration; Who is corrupt ?



A portion of a dam in Bhagalpur's Kahalgaon came down crashing hours before it was to be inaugurated by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The dam built at an estimated cost of Rs 389.31 crore is part of the ambitious Gateshwar Panth Canal Project which was planned to improve the poor land irrigation system in the region.

Several low-lying areas were flooded as water from the collapsed dam rushed into residential areas in Kahalgaon.

"The dam broke due to release of water in full capacity. The incident has not caused any damage to the newly constructed part of the project," Minister of Water Resources, Lallan Singh said.

CM Nitish Kumar, who was supposed to inaugurate the project today, had to cancel his visit.

Government on Friday rejected every argument that the junior Yadav had made in a desperate attempt to retain the bungalow

Government on Friday rejected every argument that the junior Yadav had made in a desperate attempt to retain the bungalow that he had renovated at considerable public expense when he was Bihar deputy chief minister and the building construction minister.

It possibly hasn't helped Tejashwi Yadav that he has been continuously flinging sharp darts at his former boss ever since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal (United) swapped the RJD-Congress combine with the BJP as its alliance partner in July. That move edged out the 27-year-old Yadav from the deputy chief minister's chair on which Mr Kumar's new friend Sushil Kumar Modi of the BJP sits.
