Business / Business Standard/ Latest News  
Engineering major Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Saturday said market regulator Sebi has denied permission for its Rs 9,000 crore share buyback offer. In a regulatory filing to stock exchanges, L&T said the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has asked it not to proceed with the buyback. "Since the ratio of the aggregate of secured and unsecured debts owed by the company after buy-back (assuming full acceptance) would be more than twice the paid-up capital and free reserves of the company based on consolidated financial statements", the buyback offer is not in compliance with the Companies Act and Sebi norms, the regulator said in a letter to the company. L&T had proposed to buy back up to 6.1 crore shares from shareholders at a price of Rs 1,475 per equity share, aggregating to Rs 9,000 crore. The offer was open to those holding equity shares as on October 15. A buyback reduces the number of shares available in the open market...

Business / Business Standard/ General News  
On a day when many opposition parties came together on a common platform in Kolkata, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at their proposed 'mahagathbandhan' or grand alliance, saying it is a combine of those whom he had prevented from "looting" India and it is not against him but people of the country. He took a dig at the opposition rally organised on Saturday by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in Kolkata as well as as at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, without taking her name, saying the BJP has only one MLA in the state, "but still they are so afraid of us that they are saying 'bachao' (save us)". "The 'mahagathbandhan' or grand alliance is not against Narendra Modi but people of India," Modi said while addressing a public function at Silvassa, the capital of the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, after laying a foundation stone for a medical college.

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Senior BJP leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain Saturday hit out at the opposition's 'mahagathbandhan' (grand alliance) and said the BJP was led by a "leader" while the former was helmed by a "dealer". He said the opposition's alliance comprised leaders who all wanted to become prime minister themselves. Addressing a press conference here, Hussain said, "The mahagathbandhan is completely fake. They cannot defeat the BJP because many of them sharing the dais are aspiring to be the next PM. It is just a show of unity." Taking a swipe at the Congress, which was left out from an alliance between the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party in Uttar Pradesh, Hussain said it should have the "guts" to fight Lok Sabha polls in Amethi (Rahul Gandhi's seat) and Rae Bareli (Sonia Gandhi's constituency) without taking the BSP-SP's help. Hailing Prime Minister Modi, Hussain said, "The PM is the world's most popular leader and a visionary. The BJP has the best leader. Our opponents don't ...

Business / Business Standard/ General News  
The AAP government and the Delhi Police engaged in a blame game on Saturday after a court questioned the department for filing a chargesheet in the sedition case against former JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and others without procuring the required sanction from authorities. An AAP government spokesperson said no file seeking any prosecution sanction in any JNU-related case had so far been brought to the notice of any Delhi minister. "If the Delhi Police are making any such claim, it is a complete lie and they are hiding something," he said. However, a senior Delhi Police official said prosecution sanction is required at the stage of taking cognisance. He said that while filing the chargesheet, the investigating officer had mentioned that he has applied for sanction from the Delhi government. "It was applied for the same day," the spokesperson said. Sources said the file for sanction was received by the home department and forwarded to the law department for necessary action.
