AURANGABAD: The Indian welding industry is on a gradual rise after opening itself to automatic and semi-automatic welding electrode production machines, which are turing out to be game changers for the industry, opined experts in the three-day Marathwada Welding Technology Fair-2016 at the Marathwada Auto Cluster(MAC), Waluj on Thursday. The conference was jointly organised by Chamber of Marathwada Industries and Agriculture (CMIA) and Aurangabad Industrial Suppliers Association (AISA).
Chairman of the Indian Institute of Welding R Srinivasan, said, “Growth of the welding industry is expected to double by 2020 and it will also generate tremendous employment in the coming years. Considering the growth, the industry needs to upgrade its technology and skills on a priority and must embrace the global advances in the science and art of welding to ensure success.”
Senior vice-president of Badve Group S. Abhyankar, said, “Welding is a globally accepted method of joining the metals permanently. The Indian welding industry was dominated by low technology and very rare technological innovation. However, in the recent years, the demand of automatic and semi-automatic welding electrode production machine have been rising.”
CMIA member Maithili Tambolkar said, “In order to remain competitive, welding electrodes’ machine manufacturers in India need to produce high quality and unique goods. With increasing competition and lower profit margins, manufacturers need to improve their service, performance and delivery.”
“The three-day expo will mainly focus on live demonstration of welding processes, display of variety of welding machines, consumables and allied equipment, buyer-seller meet, informative technical sessions and keynote speeches,” said Suraj Dumane, AISA secretary .
The objective of arranging such a type of focused and specialized exhibition in Aurangabad is mainly to give opportunity to industries in the region to know and understand the current developments in welding technology, said MAC chief executive officer, Bharat Gangakhedkar.

Often in life, we crave change. When things are stagnant for too long, it bothers us—we can’t sit still, or even think properly. We become perpetually bored and bothersome, ready for the next shake. A new haircut, a major switch in fashion, the random buzzing desire to move to a land far away. However, I may have discovered your easy fix.
For ages, I had been trying to add something to my makeup routine, as I felt like something was always missing. I was searching for “the big bang,” and one frosty evening in a cold MAC store, I found love.
That’s right friends, I found lipstick.
To me, lipstick is the final touch. It’s what amplifies or dwindles the preparedness of an outfit, and is what modifies an entire look, always taking it to the next level. For this reason, my lipstick obsession sees no end. I love the variety that lipstick offers, from browns to even blues. What’s not to love?
Because I know what lipstick has done for me and I know now of its magical power, my life’s work of research and experience must be shared with you. Now presenting, your lifetime guide to lipstick by yours truly.
When people think of lipstick, red is the go-to classic color they think of. This hippie can be paired up with clean winged eyeliner or a sultry smokey eye for maximum potential. It’s the perfect color to wear to things like an opening opera night or art gallery viewing. However, play your reds carefully! Because red comes in a plethora of shades, it can get a little complicated—but I’ve broken it all down for you below.

Ah, pinks. Pinks are the go to subtle pop of color and are offered for every time of girl: from rocker chic to subtle, classy chic. The plethora of types of pinks and the different looks they all offer reinstate one thing: you need a pink lip in your life—preferably one of every color.

An orange lip is THE spring/summer look. Of all the seasonal looks, it seems as the hardest to pull off but fear not, it’s scientifically universally complementary. Let me explain, unlike red lipsticks, orange tones have no saturated blue or red undertones, so they appeal to every skin color and polish any skin color for a gleaming look. Complete with a sultry sundress or a trip to the beach, these lipsticks will be sure to brighten and complement any look that needs a splash of color or radiance. To get the most out of this look, settle for a bronzey highlight and powerful pout, paired with a smile!

Purple seems like an odd color for a lipstick, doesn’t it? The good thing is, it looks a lot better than it sounds. A purple lip is just the type of a floral outfit or even a black on black ensemble. It challenges looks and takes them two ways: uphill, or even more uphill.
However, beware: the prime key to pulling off lipstick is to spend time evaluating a color that works on your skin. Purples vary, and while you may feel like melting/tossing some into a large fire, some you will recognize as your soul mate.
Note: People with warmer skin tones will likely pull off a mix between a red/purple, while others with cooler tones are free to choose between cooler purples.

Despite the focus on India as a growing market and huge opportunity for Apple, selling iPhones in the region has been far more complex for the company than in other countries around the world which haven’t helped sales.

It was reported earlier this month that Apple could be planning to manufacture some iPhones in India through Foxconn, which has previously been rumored. Doing so could help Apple in the long-term as it continues to struggle with its own retail presence in India.

Back in July, it was reported that the local government was planning to give the final go-ahead on allowing Apple to bring its retail stores to the country, although the wind has changed in all directions in recent months as details over where iPhones are manufactured and exceptions to the local law have been at issue.

For its part, Apple has focused on assisting the app developer economy in India with its app accelerator effort while Tim Cook has met and lobbied government officials in an effort to sway their decision. At any rate, iPhone 7 customers in India next month will have one more official online retail option on October 7 until Apple eventually gets the green light to sell its products directly.

A new window installation has the capacity to completely transform the décor and the appeal of your house, while also enhance the functionality of your existing windows.

Image result for Window Replacement

Nevertheless, despite its clear advantages, you can only get optimal results out of a project such as this when you have secured the services of a reliable window installation contracting company.

Thereby, enumerated below are a few pointers that will assist you in choosing a window installation team that would be the most conducive to your preferences.

Research Beforehand

One of the most foolproof measures to tackle the issue of settling down on a reliable window contractor is to start looking into their names ahead of time. When you will be in urgent need of window replacements, you would most likely be in a compromised situation, thereby facilitating the taking of hasty decisions. In this circumstance, you might end up choosing someone you find first and that might not always end up working in your favour. In fact, a range of window installations requisite the work of specialized professionals, so you would have to call a window installation team that has experience and training in undertaking such a project.
For instance, if you require an energy-efficient window installation to be done in your residence, you could either go for a PVC or a fibreglass window. The efficiency level for both these materials would be dependant on the air leakage of the window and the sunlight transmittance. These key piece of information would not just help you to find the most suitable contacting for your purposes, but also equip you to ask the right questions to your window installation contractor, therefore economizing your time and money.

Get Multiple Estimates

Make sure that you have asked your window installation contractor for multiple bids. These would not just be inclusive of the prices, but also the kind of materials and products that the contractor plans on using in the course of the installation, alongside the charges of the labour that would be used and the prices of the materials too. Apart from that, a bid would also mention the start and the finishing dates clearly.
The specificity of the bid would be momentously advantageous to you.  This would give you a veritable glimpse into the procedure of the installation so that there is little room for any misunderstanding regarding what was covered and what was not. Be certain to never make a complete upfront payment- no reliable contractor would ever ask for a full payment before the work is completed. It is normal for contractors to ask for an advanced payment, however. This amount should not exceed 20 or 30% of the total estimate.
Additionally, make sure that you have looked into the pertinent laws of your state in light of this issue as some states mandate a limitation on the amount that can be charged as a down payment.

Check the Contractor’s License

This goes without saying, but make sure that the window installation contractor you are thinking of hiring has a proper and valid license and is registered to operate in the area. For this, you would have to ask around your local jurisdiction mandates a permit for this type of project as well.
Although not all states obligate this license, it is recommended that you conduct your own research to find out these details before the verify the credentials of the license, you can pay a visit to your municipality. Verifying the details of the license would also inform you if there are any complaints lodged against the company. This would be a good warning sign against a company that would not be the best to work with. Apart from that, this inquiry would also corroborate whether the company’s insurance policy is up to date.

If you are looking to invest in an imminent window installation project, you can solicit the window contracting services of Windtek Doors And Windows Ltd. for your needs.

NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel has slashed effective data rates for its pre-paid customers, offering upto 67% more benefits for the same price, tracking a similar move by rival Idea Cellular a couple of days back as the scramble for users of mobile broadband intensified approaching Reliance Jio Infocom’s 4G launch.

Vodafone India, India’s No. 2 carrier, is also planning to make similar moves in the coming days in a bid to be “in line with the market trend,” a person familiar with the matter told ET. A Vodafone India spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.

Last week, No. 3 telco Idea Cellular had also slashed effective data rates by offering up to 45% more data benefits for its prepaid users in India who use less than 1GB, as incumbent telcos stepped up their efforts to attract new users and ring fence existing data customers ahead of Jio’s 4G services launch widely expected next month.

“These refreshed data packs will help drive consumption and boost the uptake of mobile internet in the country,” Ajai Puri, Director – Operations (India & South Asia), market leader Bharti Airtel said.

The initial rate cuts, as announced by the telcos, are just for the prepaid customers that currently makeup more than 90% of these companies’ respective subscriber bases in the country, and considered more vulnerable to switching operators than post-paid users

Analysts note that telcos aren’t reducing rates directly, but offering more bang for the buck, a strategy which will help them protect their crucial average revenue per user (ARPU) but at the same time, make their offers more attractive for users.

But they add that for the new entrant or any other existing players to expand or alter the affordability curve and expand the data user market, at some point the data tariff may itself have to go down.

“This is a preemptive move by telcos who are trying to retain their customers and increase customer sickliness as the new entrant looks to launch services in coming months,” Rohan Dhamija, partner and head of India and South Asia at consulting firm Analysys Mason said.

They are trying to “replicate” in a pre-emptive manner what the new entrant might itself do, to begin with in terms of giving more for the same, Dhamija said, adding that the incumbents are trying to make it difficult for Jio to poach their customers.

Explaining Airtel’s possible strategy in the event of a price war, Gopal Vittal, Bharti Airtel CEO for India, South Asia, had told ET previously that what matters was the average revenue per user, or protecting the headline revenue. And for that, it could offer additional bandwidth to higher-paying users even though it would pressurize its returns form data Web Posting Pro.

According to an industry insider, Mukesh Ambani-owned Jio is unlikely to disrupt the pricing, rather focus on offering more for the same—which the incumbents have started to do—or try to differentiate on the product with the content play.

But the bigger risk would be if Jio makes voice calling free with bundled data to get the short term market share if it fails to get users organically.

“By cutting price data price, followed by giving voice free, Jio might well disrupt the voice market,” the person said.
