The Indian Aviators

The Indian skies it seems are getting clogged.
Most carriers do an hour of taxing before landing at the Delhi and the Mumbai airports.

Praful Patel, the Indian Civil Avialtion Minister was recently quizzed by Prabhu Chawala ( Associate Editor – India/TV today) on Seedhi Baat. I never found ministerial speeches inspirational; however Mr. Patel seems to know what he is doing, a visionary, currently fighting and trying to give the Indian welcome ports a makeover.

Just in case you aren’t aware:
1) India was the largest buyer of Aircrafts in 2005
2) 5 more Airlines are entering the Indian skies in 2006
3) Aviation Industry will be one of the largest employers in the country.

With the privatization of two major terminals - Delhi and Mumbai, acquisition of Sahara by Jet, Indian Airlines calling itself “Indian” the best days of Indian Aviators are round the corner.

Wal-Marting in India

To have a Wal-Mart experience in India will be exciting. Known for its ruthless business initiatives and for changing the retail landscape in USA, Europe, China by selling for less, Wal-Mart is now eyeing India and currently making rounds of the PMO trying to persuade the government to allow them to open their retail stores, India currently do not allow FDI in the merchandise segment and Wal-Mart hopes to change this rule.If they fail,Wal-Mart will have to marry one of the Indian companies to enter India.I am pretty excited about Wal-Marting in India, Look forward for a retail makeover. I do wonder though, where will the goods then be imported from?

Indian firms have been sharing a chunk of the pie for quite sometime, the most recent case has been of Wipro, eating a $300 million piece of GM's 5 year $7.5 billion mega outsourcing contract awarded to EDS, HP, IBM and Wipro.

The day isn't far when pureplay indian companies will play with billion dollar contracts.
