Sahara group lines up Rs 32,400 cr investment; 56k new jobs

Sahara group, whose legal battle with Sebi continues in Supreme Court over refund of over Rs 20,000 crore to investors, has made a surprise announcement of plans being afoot to hire over 56,000 new employees this year along with investments to the tune of nearly Rs 32,400 crore. In three-page newspaper advertisements, the group has invited applications for senior positions across business verticals within and outside country and said that these more than 56,000 new jobs need to be filled by the end of 2014. At the same time, it has also claimed that the group, which calls itself Sahara India Parivar, is "committed to creating four lakh salaried positions in next three years". 

The businesses for which job applications have been invited include FMCG & retail, dairy, poultry, luxury real estate and lifestyle, food factory, low-cost housing, CSR, education and even cruises (Sahara Water Homes). Besides job details, the group also disclosed specific investment targets for at least four business verticals and these investments total to an amount of Rs 32,394 crore. For its 'Luxury Retail: Sahara Global Mastercraft Ltd' business, the group said that an investment of Rs 1,400 crore would be made over five years, while Rs 5,172 crore would be invested in Food & Beverages and Entertainment: QSR (Quick Service Restaurants). Its 'International Business: Macedonia (Europe)' business is expected to see an investment of Rs 13,922 crore in dairy project and Rs 9,600 crore in hospitality project. 

Further, healthcare would seen an investment of Rs 2,300 crore for 5-7 years, according to the public notice. The group also claimed a huge asset base with a market value of "Rs 1,52,518 crore" and a land bank of 36,631 acres. This massive recruitment drive comes at a time when the group is caught in a legal battle with Sebi, which had charged it of raising over Rs 24,000 crore through various "illegalities" in issuance of certain bonds through two firms. These two firms -- Sahara India Real Estate Corp Ltd (SIREC) and Sahara India Housing Investment Corp Ltd (SHIC)-- were asked to refund the money to investors, while the Supreme Court also asked the group to comply with Sebi orders. Sahara group later deposited Rs 5,120 crore with Sebi and claimed that it was way above the outstanding amount due to be returned to investors as more than Rs 20,000 crore were already refunded directly. The Supreme Court has refused to allow Sahara Group chief Subrata Roy to leave the country till the companies provide details of refunding Rs 20,000 crore to investors. The apex court last week asked the group to furnish all the documents to reveal the source of Rs 22,885 crore which it claims to have refunded to the investors. Besides, the group was directed to place all documents including the bank statements sought by Sebi before February 11 when the court would take up the case for further hearings.

Now, a camera that ‘clicks’ smells

LONDON: What if you could recapture the aroma of that freshly baked birthday cake, or the whiff of your lover's shampoo? It may be possible with this new camera! Researchers in the UK have developed a camera that can capture the scent of your memories, recording smells instead of images.

The gadget, called Madeleine, is the invention of designer Amy Radcliffe at Central Saint Martins, who set out to bring a more meaningful sensory dimension to storing our favourite memories, the Guardian reported.

"The sense of smell has a direct link to emotional memory . It is the sense we react to most instinctively, and the furthest away from being stored or replicated digitally," Radcliffe told the newspaper.

In order to use the camera, a person needs to place a funnel attached to the camera over the object or environment they wish to capture. Then a pump sucks the air across an odour trap made of Tenax — a porous polymer resin which adsorbs the particles that make up the smell.

The working prototype can take anything from a few minutes to capture the ravishing scent of fresh strawberries , to around 24 hours to store the more subtle aroma of an atmosphere. 
"It's like a huge electric nose. It processes the particles and produces a graph-like formula that makes up the smell. From this formula you can artificially recreate the precise odour," she said.  Source:
