In the market, Reliance Jio has waged war in the field of data. All the telecom companies are offering fantastic deals to compete. Starting From April 1st, Reliance Jio will charge users for their services. But among all these, there is big news for customers. Very soon a company is going to give data at a rate of about 17 rupees per month to its users.

Canadian based company Datawind, the mobile handset maker is planning to offer internet data plan for 200 rupees a year. For this, the company plans to invest Rs 100 crore in Indian telecom service market. The company will spend this amount first six months after getting the license. Datawind, well known for cheap smartphones and tablets, has applied for a permit to become a network service provider in India. After getting this license, the company will be able to offer data services and telnet work services. However, this company can provide its service only by partnering with any existing telecom company in India.

We are hoping that we should get license in a month or so. Datawind will invest Rs 100 in the first six month to launch the business with focus on data services” said Datawind president and CEO Suneet Singh Tuli.
Tuli said the company plans to offer data plans that will not cost Rs 20 per month or lesser. Jio’s Rs 300 plan is affordable for those who have been spending Rs 1,000-1,500 per month. This would be only top 300 million people. Rest of the people spends around Rs 90 a month and for them it’s not that cheap. One year of data service should not be more than Rs 200,” Tuli said.

Tuli also said the company is looking for the feasibility to provide 3G or 4G speed. While talking about the their tablet business he said Datawind currently have their tablets manufacturing units in Hyderabad and in Amritsar. The demand for tablets is not bad and is producing 11,000 tablets on a daily basis.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Securing the Industrial Internet is the top priority for Middle East Chief Information Security Officers (CISO), one of the world’s leading consultancies challenged today at the GITEX CISO Breakfast Briefing.

Spending on the Industrial Internet– combining Big Data with the Internet of Things – is set to impact USD 15 trillion of global GDP by 2030, according to a recent report by the consultancy Accenture. However, these technologies can expose companies to cyber security risk, and only 44 per cent of organisations have end-to-end security in place.

“Security is becoming more relevant than ever before in today’s hyper-connected world. Our increasingly digitized ecosystem presents us with both opportunities and challenges. Governments and businesses in every industry need to adapt to this new reality by creating an agile and resilient security framework that actively prevents and combats cyberattacks,” said Tony Karam, Managing Director of Accenture Digital in the Middle East and North Africa, on the sidelines of the GITEX CISO Breakfast Briefing 2016.

“The bad guys never rest, and they will always be testing the limits of every organization. This means business must think differently and deeply embed cyber defense strategies across the entire value chain,” added Tony Karam.

Sponsored by network security company ForeScout Technologies, Inc., the invite-only closed-door CISO Breakfast Briefing saw CISOs from a wide range of industry verticals exchange knowledge on Internet security advancements, and share best practices on challenges and opportunities.

The session featured Michael P. DeCesare, CEO and President of ForeScout Technologies Inc., which is transforming security through visibility. ForeScout offers Global 2000 enterprises and government organisations the unique ability to see devices, including non-traditional devices, the instant they connect to the network. As of January 2016, more than 2,000 customers in over 60 countries improve their network security and compliance posture with ForeScout solutions.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Vice President of Congress Rahul Gandhi to either confront trial or apologize for his defamatory comments against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

“If you won’t apologize, you will have to face the trial,” the Supreme Court said pulling up the leader of the Congress for his defamatory comments. “We have held it might be historically right but the fact or the statement has to meet the test of public good. You can’t make collective denunciation,” as per the Bench involving Justices RF Nariman and Dipak Misra.

The Bench said that “opportunity is neither crippled nor curbed. What is curbed is the right to speak freely. What the authors, legislators, commentators or the antagonists say, you should have extraordinary extent to swallow”.

The bench scrutinized the discourse made by Rahul Gandhi and pondered “why he made a speech citing wrong facts from history.” The apex court further said that they have connected their psyche and Rahul will need to confront the trial for the situation. “What we need to see is the petitioner’s claims go under Section 499 that quotes defamation of IPC or not. Judgment is as of now there. You need to face the trial, in the event that you don’t express the regression,” the Bench said.

It likewise said “the purpose behind the law is not to change over individuals into defendants. Reason for the law is that individuals obey the law. Peace and harmony ought to win instead of mayhem.” Senior advocate Harin Raval, showing up for Rahul Gandhi, said whatever was said in the discourse was on the premise of government records and on the premise of choice of Punjab and Haryana High Court and he was not alluding to RSS specifically. The Bench subsequent to scrutinizing the judgment of Punjab and Haryana High Court, said it just says that Nathuram Godse was a RSS worker and included that Godse executed Gandhi and RSS murdered Mahatma Gandhi are two distinct things.

“You have gone a way ahead and you can’t make collective denunciation,” it said. Justice Misra said that “history is the best adversary of the privacy. Throughout the years, endeavors have been made to go into the lives of generally prominent identities to give another measurement.”

Raval then looked for an adjournment for two weeks saying that the senior advocate Kapil Sibal will contend in the matter and he is not accessible today and furthermore looked for a freedom to document the response.

The seat, be that as it may, declined the solicitation for adjournment and posted the matter for the date July 27 and said that no further adjournment will be conceded for the situation. While tending to an open rally at Sonale in Bhiwandi on March 6, 2015 Rahul Gandhi had asserted it was “RSS individuals” who had murdered Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. “RSS individuals killed Gandhiji and today their kin (BJP) discuss him…They contradicted Sardar Patel and Gandhiji,” he had said.
