Per second billing by all mobile operators

Good News for Mobile users!
 Doesn't this mean every operator will have to opt for per second billing?

In a move that could potentially reduce call charges, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is planning to make the one-second pulse a mandatory tariff option for all operators.

The move will benefit consumers because it will reduce the 'wastage' per call, which some telecom companies put at about 18 percent, reports PTI. Currently, most telecom companies fix the minimum pulse rate at 60 seconds. "We may ask all operators to consider the per-second pulse as a mandatory tariff option along with their other tariff plans," said TRAI Chairman J.S. Sarma.

Analysts say that the change would make tariffs more transparent since consumers will pay only for as many seconds as they use. "On average, consumers do not use 15 to 20 seconds of a call but pay for it because of the one-minute pulse rate. A per-second pulse would mean …

Free software saves Kerala schools Rs.11 Crore

By opting for the free and open software platform (FOSS) for the state-sponsored IT@School project, Kerala's General Education Department has saved Rs.11 crore.

The project's Executive Director K. Anvar Sadath said if proprietary software were used in the 11,065 laptops and computers to be supplied in schools, a minimum of Rs.11 crore would have been spent in procurement of software.

"This deployment, considered to be the largest ever, will start from tomorrow (Friday) and will include 8,385 computers, 9,607 UPS, 2,680 laptops, 1,871 multimedia projectors, 2,222 laser printers, 1,076 dot matrix printers and 1,759 scanners to be made available to schools," said Sadath.

This scheme is already running in 1,016 government schools and is now being extended to 3,055. At present it covers classes 8 to 12.

"The advantage of using free software is not only cost reduction, there are philosophical reasons behind this including sharing of knowledge. I think this is a model th…

E-learning Outsourcing industry in India is expected to achieve revenue growth

The E-learning Outsourcing industry in India is expected to achieve revenue growth by $603 million by the end of 2012. The Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) is expected at 15 percent per year, which might also waver till 2010 because of the global economic recession.......the growth rate of the e-learning industry will be slow for coming 6-8 quarters, but will attain its pace by then.....The e-learning industry earned a profit around $341 millions in the year 2008...... Prestigious institutions like Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) are actively adopting e-learning courses... ....

His Is The Team India Needs!

His Is The Team India Needs!These are the days of election fever and every politician is suffering from it. Many have started showing the symptoms of the high fever, you might have observed some ads flooding the web saying “XYZ for PM”. And I feel sad for it, because this thing once again proves that we Indians always try to blindly copy things from west or make something which is somehow an Indian version of an American thing. I strongly think that Indian people feel proud in “Importing Ideals”! Same disease has attacked our leader who is just dying to be PM [sorry to say this but it’s what seems!].Many politicians in India got impressed with campaign of the Obama for the presidential elections in America. I don’t know are these some politicians are impressed with what he does and what he speaks. I think this leader of ours don’t know India is not a presidential democracy and India doesn’t need only a good PM but a complete perfect team of visionary leaders under a visionary-strong P…

one laptop per child

India has unveiled plans to produce a laptop computer costing just $US10 ($15) to help improve the skills of millions of students across the country.
The laptops will be mass-produced as part of a government-sponsored education scheme launched on Tuesday in the southern city of Tirupati.
Details about the computer remained scarce, but Higher Education Secretary R.P. Agrawal said last week that it would be available within six months."Once the testing is over, the computers will be made available on commercial basis," he told the Press Trust of India news agency."Its cost will be $US10. If the parents want to gift something to their kids, they can easily purchase this item."The laptop will reportedly have a two gigabyte memory and wireless internet capability, but officials have not publicly demonstrated a prototype - or yet explained how it can be produced at such a low cost.The government has earmarked more than 46 billion rupees ($A1.4 billion) to develop the low-p…

Information Technology Business Today and Tomorrow / Towards Domestic market

Information Technology has played a strong role in shaping the growth of the Indian industry in last decade. But the current market scenario has taken the air out of many of our big business houses. Recently I attended INDIA IT 2020 Conference where I found many interesting things which can be shared here. The conference was attended by many big leaders of the IT industry some of them were- CFO TCS, CEO Mastek, people from BPCL, Microsoft and many other IT companies were present.
