RBS to Cut Over 400 Jobs in UK, Move Many of Them to India

British lender Royal Bank of Scotland said today that it is cutting 443 UK jobs dealing with business loans, and plans to shift many of the roles to India. The UKs largest government-owned bank said it was moving the jobs, which help handle loans for small businesses, as part of an ongoing cost-cutting drive.

Why isn’t India able to harvest it and reap itself huge pool of benefits? Japan has leveraged its cultural emphasis on ‘efficiency and team work’, to revolutionize the manufacturing and engineering industries. The Republic of Korea (Korea) has utilized its cultural emphasis on ‘speed’, and it has built some world-class companies such as Samsung and LG. China has sustained a GDP growth of more than 10% for more than two decades by virtue of its ‘ability to scale’. The United States of America (USA) and Israel have leveraged the diversity of their populations to lead innovation globally. I firmly believe that now it is India’s turn ...

Indian Services Sector Returns to Growth After 3 Month Contraction

The services sector returned to the growth zone in February after three months of demonetisation- driven contraction but recovery was 'mild' and business confidence remained subdued, a monthly survey showed today.

The Nikkei India Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), which tracks services sector output on a monthly basis, stood at 50.3 in February, up from 48.7 registered in January. After slipping to a near three-year low last November, which was the first monthly drop in output since June 2015, the headline index edged has now edged back above the 50.0 mark, which separates expansion...
