Muthoot FinCorp extends its successful “Shopping Dhamakka” across the southern states of India

February 22, 2021, Mumbai: As part of the recently launched #RestartIndia campaign with an aim to empower small-time retailers, Muthoot FinCorp has further expanded its successful “Muthoot FinCorp Shopping Dhamakka” to the southern states. Having first piloted it in the state of Kerala that received an overwhelming response from retailers and customers, the shopping festival commenced again on January 18 and would continue till the end of February. The outbreak of Covid-19 has created an unprecedented situation especially for the nano, micro and small retailers having severely impacted their businesses. In order to help them overcome the sluggishness of the business caused by the outbreak, Muthoot FinCorp’s RestartIndia initiative strives to help these retailers ride the Covid-19 wave by making it their mission to help to restart the Indian Small Businesses. The project aims includes tailor-made loan schemes, advisory services, and demand generation programs such as digital marketing training and Shopping Dhamakka. Spread across over 100 districts in the 4 South states, the Muthoot FinCorp Shopping Dhamakka, therefore, hopes to increase the footfalls and benefit over 50,000 of micro-retailers, encouraging the consumers to do some more shopping. Spanned across the months of January and February, the Dhamakka has a range of prizes worth Rs. 25 lakhs. Moreover, weekly & bumper prizes also await the lucky customers that include various rewards and bonuses in the form of Gold Coins, LED TVs, Refrigerators, Honda Scooters, among others. In order to help support as many shopkeepers as possible, Muthoot FinCorp further aims to roll out / extend the campaign to the North and West of India. Elaborating on the company’s initiative, Mr. Thomas John Muthoot, Chairman and Managing Director, Muthoot FinCorp said, ”We are extremely glad to be taking up this initiative as small – time businesses were one of the most vulnerable and threatened sectors to be affected by the pandemic. Our Restart Initiative, which was inaugurated by Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways and MSME on July 23, 2020, hopes to convert the challenges that the retailers faced into one filled with a positive future where they can restart their businesses and take care of their families. Through specially curated Interest Free Gold Loan scheme, we have disbursed Rs.255.64 cr. to small retailers. We hope to continue with our momentum and plan to roll out Shopping Dhamakka across all Indian States in the near future”. Started in August 2020 in Kerala, the Muthoot FinCorp Shopping Dhamaka had directly benefited more than 25,000 Covid-stricken shopkeepers in Kerala. With nearly 15 lakh customers that took part/registered for the shopping festival, they were given Muthoot Fincorp's gift coupons for purchases ranging from Rs.100/Rs.500 and winners were chosen through a weekly draw of lots.

Strong hiring gains for gaming industry

Sector sees appreciable spike in job postings during the lockdown Searches increased from March to June 2020, then declined sharply from July to September 2020 and have steadied at a level slightly higher compared to Jan National, 17th February 2021: Data from Indeed – the world’s #1 job site - indicates that in January 2021, both job gaming sector job postings and searches were up 13% and 15% respectively, from the same period last year, painting a promising picture for a nascent yet rapidly growing industry in India. A recent* report pegged the gaming industry in India at $2.8 billion by 2022. Concurrent with this prediction, Indeed data also signals potential for growth in the gaming sector, where job postings were seen to consistently outnumber job searches, almost tripling in July 2020. As of Jan 2021, the number of job postings were still twice the number of job searches on Indeed, indicating a significant gap yet opportunity for India’s vast talent pool. “Our data forecasts the growth of India’s gaming industry which will have a substantial impact on the jobs of tomorrow. With a ripple effect across sectors such as technology, telecommunications, marketing or events, the gaming industry has the potential to generate massive employment in India.” said Sashi Kumar, Managing Director, Indeed.com. “Thanks to the gaming industry as a whole getting a fillip in 2020, we needed to scale up rapidly at MPL. We built capacity and increased our team strength across verticals such as QA, Product, Marketing, etc. In 2020, our headcount grew by 110% as we hired personnel across our offices in Bengaluru, Pune, Jakarta, and Singapore. The sector is booming and we are looking to expand rapidly this year. With our recently-raised funds, we will add more features and gaming titles to the MPL platform and expand to new geographies. To cater to these plans, MPL aims to double its workforce over the course of this year. Some of the areas we are looking to strengthen are technology, operations, and product. - Naman Jhawar, SVP, Operations and Strategy, MPL.

गोदरेज अप्‍लायंसेज वर्तमान में वैक्‍सीन रेफ्रिजरेटर्स का प्रभावशाली तरीके से इस्‍तेमाल कर रहा है। ये रेफ्रिजरेटर्स भारत में लगाये जा रहे अत्‍यंत तापमान-संवेदी कोवैक्‍सीन और कोविशिल्‍ड को स्‍टोर करने के लिए 2 से 8 डिग्री सेल्सियस तक सटीक तापमान बनाये रखता है। गोदरेज अप्‍लायंसेज को अक्‍टूबर 2020 में इसके लिए राष्‍ट्रीय निविदा टेंडर प्राप्‍त हुआ है। ऐसे मेडिकल फ्रीजर्स जो-20°C तक तापमान को बनाये रखते हैंका भी उपयोग डाइल्‍यूएंट्स एवं आइसपैक्‍स के लिए किया जा रहा हैजो कोविड टीकाकरण अभियान को सुदूर क्षेत्रों तक पहुंचाने के लिए आवश्‍यक है। यदि इन वैक्‍सीन्‍स को विनिर्दिष्‍ट तापमान-सीमा में नहीं रखा जायेतो ये स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य एवं आर्थिक स्थिति के लिए हानिकारक हो सकते हैं।


इन अल्‍ट्रा लो टेंपरेचर फ्रीचर्स को इस पोर्टफोलियो में नये सिरे से शामिल किया गया है और ये विशेष रूप से एमआरएनए-आधारित टीकों के लिए उपयुक्‍त हैं जिनका उपयोग वर्तमान में अन्‍य देशों में हो रहा है। एमआरएनए-आधारित कोविड-19 वैक्‍सीन्‍स बेहद तापमान-संवेदी हैं और इन्‍हें अत्‍यंत निम्‍न तापमान रखा जाना अत्‍यावश्‍यक है। एमआरएनए को वातावरण के अन्‍य अणुओं से नुकसान पहुंचने का लगातार खतरा होता है। यद्यपि वैक्‍सीन्‍स के निर्माताओं ने कृत्रिम एमआरएनए में रासायनिक परिवर्तन किये हैंऔर इन परसुरक्षात्‍मक परत चढ़ाये हैंफिर भी इन्‍हें निम्‍नतम -80°C के तापमान पर स्‍टोर किया जाना जरूरी हैताकि इन्‍हें बर्बाद होने से बचाया जा सकेचूंकि इनका मानव स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य पर सीधा प्रभाव है। इसलिएकोल्‍ड चेन संबंधी लॉजिस्टिक समस्‍याओं के चलते टीकाकरण प्रक्रिया में किसी भी तरह की बर्बादी या असरहीनता से बचाया जाना अत्‍यावश्‍यक है।

(प्‍लेट हीट एक्‍सचेंजर) का उपयोग किया जाता है। यह सेकंडरी सिस्‍टम के स्‍टैंडिंग प्रेशर को कम करता हैजिसके जरिए तापमान को कम करता है। इसके अलावागोदरेज अल्‍ट्रा लो टेंपरेचर फ्रीजर्स में अलार्म्‍स युक्‍त इनबिल्‍ट सेफ्टी सिस्‍टम्‍स मौजूद हैं ताकि असंभावी प्रेशर बिल्‍ड अप की स्थिति में सेकंडरी प्रेशर की रक्षा की जा सके। इसमें कई विशेषताएं मौजूद हैं जैसे कि (क) ताप के अंत:प्रवेश को रोकने के लिए 2 चरण सीलिंग एवं इंटर्नल सेपरेट डोर्स और (ख) लंबे समय तक चालू स्थिति में रखने के लिए सेकंडरी सिस्‍टम के लिए ऑयल रिकवरीजो ऑपरेशन के दौरान इसकी संपूर्ण क्षमता को बढ़ाती हैं। आगेलिक्विड कार्बन डाइ-ऑक्‍साइड (CO2) या लिक्विड नाइट्रोजन डाइ-ऑक्‍साइड (NO2) जैसे बैक-अप सिस्टम्‍सबिजली चली जाने या असंभावित रूप से सिस्‍टम में खराबी आ जाने की स्थिति में 48 घंटे से अधिक समय तक तापमान को स्थिर बनाये रखते हुए स्टोर किये गये स्‍टॉक की सुरक्षा सुनिश्चित करते हैं।


अल्ट्रा लो टेंपरेचर फ्रीजर्स की वर्तमान क्षमता 12,000 यूनिट्स प्रति वर्ष हैऔर गोदरेज अप्‍लायंसेज बढ़ती वैश्विक मांग को पूरा करने के लिए अपने उत्‍पादन को तेजी से बढ़ाते हुए 30,000 यूनिट्स प्रति वर्ष करने की दिशा में प्रयासरत है।


गोदरेज अप्‍लायंसेजअंतिम छोर तक टीका उपलब्‍ध कराने के अगले चरण में सहायता के लिए अन्‍य तरीके भी तलाश रहा है। इसने महाराष्‍ट्र के ग्रामीण इलाके में मोबाइल क्लिनिक भी सफलतापूर्वक शुरू किया है और वैक्‍सीन रेफ्रिजरेटर से युक्‍त एंबुलेंस चला रहाजो तीन दिनों तक बिना किसी पावर सोर्स से जुड़े प्रभावी तरीके से काम कर सकता है। प्रत्‍येक 2 घंटे पर तापमान की जांच की गयी और यह आवश्‍यक तापमान मानकों के अनुरुप पाया गया। चूंकि भारत में टीकाकरण की गति तेज की जा रही हैइसलिए इसे सफल बनाने में दूरदराज के क्षेत्रों के लिए इस तरह के अन्‍य सिस्‍टम्‍स को तैनात करना पड़ सकता है।


गोदरेज एंड बॉयस विशेष रूप से वर्तमान महामारी काल में देश की सेवा के लिए प्रतिबद्ध है। यह अपनी पेशकशों जैसे कि चिकित्सा घटकों - हॉस्पिटल बेड एक्‍चुएटर्स एवं वेंटिलेटर्स के लिए इलेक्‍ट्रो-मैग्‍नेटिक वॉल्‍व्‍स, लोगों की सुरक्षा हेतु डिसइंफेक्‍टेंट डिवाइसेज, या कार्यस्‍थल पर लोगों को सुरक्षित रखने के लिए सोशल डिस्‍टेंट ऑफिसेज की स्‍थापना के जरिए लगातार प्रयासरत है। और इसे मेड इन इंडिया मेडिकल रेफ्रिजरेटर और फ्रीजर के साथ देश की सेवा करने का गर्व है।
