➡️Apple: Will Need a Concrete Reason to Remove #Betting Apps

The government banned 232 betting apps in February 2023. To which #iPhone maker Apple responded by asking for a “concrete or legal reason” to take down the betting apps from its phones.

After the #MeitY order to ban apps like Betway, Lotus 365, etc, many are still operating in the open with advertisements on digital platforms and Apple App Store.

Will Apple comply with the government’s clause, or will it take up arms in the court?

#DelhiHighCourt takes objection to CBI's submission that the a Look Out Circular issued in 2019 against journalists @PrannoyRoyNDTV and #RadhikaRoy still continuing.

"You can't continue in perpetuity... Don't even try to argue that," the court said.
Justice Prathiba M Singh was hearing a plea by Prannoy and Radhika Roy challenging the LOC issued against them when the CBI's counsel said that the LOCs issued automatically get extended.
CBI said it filed had filed an FIR against the Roys in 2017 but that got expired after which another FIR was filed in 2019 and an LOC was issued based on that.

Ayoub visited a store in suburban Detroit where he lives and noticed some gift cards on the rack are being packaged more carefully. "It's not like the card is hanging from a little piece of rubbery glue like it used to," he said. #zombievirus #NDTV #NeverLetMeGoSeriesEP3 Big box stores are encasing the card in more packaging to hide the important numbers on the back, he said, which could be a sign that retailers are trying to find ways to stop the fraud before it happens.… He's not a fan of just grabbing a gift card off a huge rack at the store. He'd suggest buying them online from the retailer or restaurant that is issuing the card and emailing that e-card to the person. If you want a plastic or paper card, you can buy

How so called independent media #NDTV is associated with the leftist and anti-India forces for decades?

A Thread:

#Adani #NDTVtakeover #PrannoyRoy #Prannoy_roy
#NDTV was founded by Prannoy Roy & his wife Radhika Roy in 1980s.

Prannoy roy who happens to be the cousin of Arundhati Roy who openly sided with Kashmir Militants on their demands of Independent Kashmir & continuously on denial mode of genocide of hindus.

#Adani #NDTVtakeover
Same ideology we can sense with NDTV reporting while covering Kashmiri Hindus genocide.

Their anchor Barkha Dutt even justified hindus genocide calling its a revolt against elite class by lower class. Is this unbiased journalism?

Anyone who knew about #Adani 's August acquisition of a minority stake in #NDTV and its open offer to take over the company, knew this day was coming. But, just like death, we were in denial until it came. 1/n
Dr Roy and Mrs Roy’s resignation from the holding company teaches us 2 things
1) It is tough as hell to run a media company in contemporary times, esp in India.
2) How NOT to assume economic growth will last a lifetime while making financial decisions for a media (any?) company. Prudence should be priority

1. The story of #NDTV ownership involves media mogul Rupert Murdoch, the infamous Indiabulls, fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya, Mukesh Ambani, and now Gautam Adani who bought it from him.  

 A thread.
2. NDTV’s ownership changed hands many times over the years but @ndtv has always sat pretty in corporate Godi (lap). The story goes like this:
3. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, when Doordarshan started commissioning news/current affairs shows to private companies, Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy took the opportunity and started making current affairs programs for it using DD’s resources.

About 10 days back, I read this news..My initial reaction was that of shock and disbelief..I thought how can men, who committed horrible crime against Bilkis Banu, be set free?

In my personal opinion, rapists and murderers must never leave the prison..

I was wondering how could Gujarat govt release these prisoners? Therefore, I decided to find out the reasons, which led to early release of these 11 prisoners.

While going through this excerpts, I decided to get hold of the SC judgment which triggered this release..

I found the Supreme Court judgment, which ordered the Gujarat Govt to consider the application of remission by one of the petitioners who had completed more than 15 years jail..SC order specifically asked Gujarat govt to consider remission on the basis of its 1992 circular.

▶️Here is the full story of the #NDTV vs #Adani case.


It's so fascinating to read 👀

Understand everything there is to know about NDTV vs Adani in this thread.🧵

⚠️Spoilers: This story also involves Mukesh Ambani.
The story begins in 2009. Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy had (they still have) 15.94 percent and 16.32 percent holding of NDTV respectively
29.18 percent of the holding was under the name RRPR Holding Private Ltd, a company named after the Roy couple and the rest, 38.55 percent of the holding go to the public that including two Mauritian companies.

The Roys didn't pledge their shares to VPCL to earn money for themselves. From 2010, their salaries were lower than what I was paid. There were many other top journalists in the #NDTV newsroom who got much more than them. They borrowed to save NDTV, and hundreds of jobs. (1/3)
And yes, journalists ACROSS news organisations gained from the fact that #NDTV stayed afloat, and continued to pay decent salaries to its employees. That is because, if there had been no NDTV, other proprietors would have slashed salaries without any remorse. (2/3)
The least that we can do today - whether we have worked at #NDTV or not - is to curb the schadenfreude-driven urge to take potshots at the Roys. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you are culpable in the process by which journalism became corporatised. Spare us the sermons. (3/3)

🪡 The “hostile” bid by Gautam Adani to take over #NDTV has resulted in shock, sadness, and schadenfreude.

But who offered the channel, the baby of @PrannoyRoyNDTV and his wife Radhika Roy—to Adani behind their backs?

Could it be Mukesh Ambani, who saved it 13 years ago?

2️⃣ The way @timesofindia puts it, @gautam_adani’s acquisition route was simple.

Adani bought the Roys’ stake in @ndtv by buying up Vishvapradhan Commercial Pvt Ltd (VCPL), from two shareholders: Nextwave Televentures and Eminent Networks, for Rs 114 crore.

This gave him 29%.
3️⃣ VCPL, Nextwave and Eminent share the same 4th floor address in Gurgaon.

The common director in all three companies with the same director identification number (00548276) is a Anil Kumar Jain.

Is he an Ambani man or a front? Jain sits on more than boards.

NDTV अदानींनी विकत घेतली आहे. अगदी अंबानींनी जसा नेटवर्क 18 ग्रुप विकत घेतला अगदी तसंच NDTV विकत घेण्याची तयारी चालू आहे आणि मेन म्हणजे २००९ मध्येच NDTV विकली जाणार हे जवळपास फिक्स होतं. हे सगळं एक्सप्लेन करणारा हा थ्रेड.
तर ज्याप्रकारे अंबानींनी नेटवर्क 18 विकत घेतली तीच स्क्रिप्ट इथं रिपीट झाली आहे. म्हणजे मीडिया कंपनीवर खूप कर्ज असल्याने त्यांना बेलआउटची गरज असते. अशावेळी कंपनीचे प्रमोटर कर्ज घेतात. तेव्हा कर्ज देणारा Debentures ने कर्ज देतो.
Debentures मध्ये कर्जदाराला कर्जाची अमाऊंट कंपनीच्या शेअर्समध्ये कन्व्हर्ट करण्याचा ऑप्शन राहतो. त्यामुळे मग पुढे जाऊन कर्जदार त्याने दिलेल्या कर्जाचं शेअर्समध्ये रूपांतर करतो आणि मालकी बदलते. हेच NDTV च्या उदाहरणातून समजून घेऊ.

#NDTV says: Without any discussion with co or promoters, VCPL has served notice stating that it has exercised rights to acquire 99.5% control of RRPR Holding Private
, the promoter-owned Company that owns 29.18% of NDTV. #Adani
#NDTV says: The founders and the NDTV would like to make it clear that this exercise of rights by
VCPL was executed without any input from, conversation with, or consent of the NDTV founders,
who, like NDTV, have been made aware of this exercise of rights only today. #Adani
#NDTV's statment on #Adani's attempt to indirectly
acquire 29.18% stake in #NDTV and launch open offer signals a #HostileTakeover in making. Will NDTV promoters manage to fight and protect their interest, or would they be pushed out...only time will tell! #media

Does India’s “most gifted businessman” @gautam_adani have a sense of humour? He has acquired 99.5% of the 29% stake of @ndtv founders Prannoy and Radhika Roy through a subsidiary called “Vishvapradhan”. Hopefully not a portmanteau of Vishwaguru and Pradhan Sevak.
Adani Media Networks Ltd CEO @sanjaypugalia is quoted as saying “AMNL seeks to empower Indian citizens, consumers and those interested in India, with information and knowledge” by acquiring #NDTV.

As a media watcher who reads ‘Manufacturing Consent’ every night, do you think?
“This is a baseless rumour. Radhika and Prannoy Roy are not in discussions, nor have been, with any entity for a change in ownership or a divestment of their stake in NDTV”

@ndtv clarification to BSE. So, has Adani made the open offer after a deal with Mukesh Ambani?

I was putting off tweeting about these men, since I knew the mood would only go downhill hereafter.
But then, it is definitely a day to remember the #14FebPulwamaBravehearts.
Let me share my jumbled, angry thoughts about that dastardly attack ..
I still remember that evening as the news of the attack came in and the casualty count just kept on going higher and higher. I was having dinner at my boss' place that evening. It was supposed to be a light evening, but it was anything but that.
I doubt anyone of us was actually 'attending' that party that evening. Despite being physical present there, we were lost in our own worlds of emotions as the gravity of the event sunk in.
There wasn't much conversation that night, despite quite a few 'talkative' guys amongst us.

#SupremeCourt to shortly hear a plea by NDTV promoters, Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy against Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) order of penalty of Rs. 27 crore for failing to disclose price sensitive information to the shareholders of NDTV
@PrannoyRoyNDTV @SEBI_India
SEBI had held that the ICICI loan agreement and the two VCPL loan agreements contained clauses and conditions that substantially affected the functioning of NDTV.
Additionally, it noted that the VPCL loan agreements also warranted transfer of shares of NDTV by the promoters which was carried out off-market by way of various inter se bulk transactions.

The images from November 1, 2020 have been analysed by several experts who confirmed that the construction which is approximately 4.5 kms within the Indian territory of the facto border will be a huge concern for India.
