first_img Tags: NULL Reckitt in £460m deal for Paras Share Consumer goods firm Reckitt Benckiser has agreed to buy privately-held Indian company Paras Pharmaceuticals for about $726m (£460m), to boost its operations in a fast-growing healthcare market.Big global healthcare firms are fast driving into emerging markets as sales stall in developed countries and as they look to tap into the healthcare needs of billions of new consumers in places such as China, India, Brazil and Russia.Paras, which clocked sales of more than four billion rupees in the financial year ended March, makes several over-the-counter medications, including Moov pain relief ointment, Krack heel care lotion, and D’Cold cold remedy.“The research base of companies and the market potential in India are the main attractions for foreign players in the Indian healthcare sector,” said R.K. Gupta, managing director at Taurus Asset Management Company in New Delhi.“We will see these kind of deals in the future as well as global drug makers step up their efforts to capture a bigger share of the emerging markets.”Private equity firm Actis will sell its 63 per cent stake in Paras to Reckitt Benckiser. Other shareholders including Sequoia Capital and Paras founder Girish Patel and his family will also sell their stakes to the company.“It creates a material healthcare business in India, one of the most promising healthcare markets in the world with the addition of number of strong and leading brands,” Reckitt Chief Executive Bart Becht said in a statement.Reckitt has in its stable a number of household names including cleaner Cillit Bang. whatsapp John Dunne center_img Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeCuteness56 Animal Puns For a Quick LaughCutenessBewadaHusband Divorced His Wife After Looking Closer At This PhotoBewadaadvisor15 Plants that Repel Mosquitoes NaturallyadvisorBuzzDestination7 Types of Men Who Are Not Made For RelationshipsBuzzDestinationcutenova.comTake a Peek at 10 of the Most Expensive Houses in the Worldcutenova.comwomengetfreebies.comGet free samples sent to your home. 100% free.

The broker says that if the Group was broken up and its businesses sold, it would estimate a value of 1,804p in the absence of any tax liabilities. It therefore says that a break-up valuation is the best way to proceed, and raises its pricing accordingly.SERCOThe front-line service provider is rated as a “buy” by Killik & Co, which says the group is well placed to win government contracts as investment in infratructure and pubic services increases.

The Bench comprising Justices NV Ramana, S. Abdul Nazeer and Justice Surya Kant has asked the Respondents, represented by Senior Advocate Siddhartha Luthra, to file their counter affidavits in the matter. Dr. Saderla, a professor at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, belonging to the Scheduled Caste community, had filed a FIR against 4 colleagues from the same institute in November, 2018, alleging a series of actions allegedly amounting to caste based discrimination. The FIR was lodged for offences and atrocities punishable under Section 3 of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, as the Petitioner was “disheartened and disgruntled by the persistent and unbridled harassment and public slur on caste lines at the hands of the Respondents.” The same came to be stayed by the Allahabad High Court within 4 days and was finally quashed vide order dated March 5, 2020. The Petitioner has submitted that it is the basic fundamental right of an individual to report a cognizable offence committed against him to the police, so as to prevent any further harm to his life, liberty and property. However, the High Court quashed his FIR in a “routine-mechanical manner” at the very threshold. He submitted that the High Court proceeded on an “erroneous premise” that the Respondents did not know that the Petitioner was a member of the schedule caste. “The said assumption is negated by a bare perusal of the FIR and its contents, wherein the Petitioner has categorically stated that he was recruited to IIT Kanpur in pursuance of a special recruitment drive for STs, SCs and OBCs conducted by the institute…It is pertinent to mention that nowhere in the writ petition or the rejoinder filed before the High Court have the accused denied knowledge of the SC status of the Petitioner,” he submitted. It was pointed out that the High Court even erred in not taking into consideration the acts and incidents of defamation mentioned in the FIR, that were aimed at lowering the Petitioner’s moral/ intellectual character in respect of his caste. It is stated that the High Court erroneously observed that the offence of Defamation under Sections 499 and 500 of IPC shall not be attracted to the present case as the alleged incident occurred in a ‘close door meeting’. He informed the Top Court that successive reports by three independent and unrelated bodies, viz. (i) the fact-finding committee of IIT-K, (ii) the National Commission of Scheduled Castes and (iii) the Enquiring Authority held by Justice Saeed-uz-Zama Siddiqi, Former Judge, High Court of Allahabad, found the Respondents guilty of publicly humiliating, harassing and openly discriminating against the Petitioner in stark violation of the SC/ST Act and suggested action to be taken against the errant professors in accordance with the law. “If blanket protection is given from initiation of investigation and any action being taken against them inspite of such categorical and unequivocal findings, it would result in irreparable damage to the fabric of social equality and equal treatment under the law,” he contended. The Petitioner was represented by Senior Advocate Ashok Kumar Gupta, AOR Sunita Sharma and Advocates Abhishek Gupta and Raushal Kumar.

Puerto Rico still suffering 6 months after catastrophic hurricane: Here’s how to help

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Six months after Puerto Rico was devastated by a hurricane that knocked out power to almost the entire island, tens of thousands remain without electricity and the U.S. territory is struggling to recover.Hurricane Maria severely damaged Puerto Rico’s electrical grid and caused an estimated $100 billion in property damages when it made landfall on Sept. 20. Most of the territory’s three million residents were left in darkness and cut them off from basic supplies.Six months later, the island is still trying to return to normal, including with tens of thousands of people still lacking power.Many relief efforts for Puerto Rico that began soon after the hurricane continue. Here are some ways you can help:American Red Cross, The Salvation Army and Catholic Charities are still accepting both relief donations funds and volunteers to help areas affected by the hurricane.United for Puerto Rico, a fund set up by Puerto Rico’s first lady Beatriz Rossello, wife of Gov. Ricardo Rossello, collects donations and distributes them to non-profits helping people affected by the disaster.AmeriCares said that for every $1 donated it provides $20 worth of medical aid and disaster support.Among others helping are New York governor Andrew Cuomo who recently announced that a team of experts will go to Puerto Rico to help local officials with rebuilding plans and, over the summer, students from from both the State University of New York and the City University of New York will go to the island to assist.The Federal Emergency Management Agency, FEMA, is still working with communities on the island that are in desperate need of food and water, and is helping local non-profits that need supplies.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
