DoT recommendations donít go all the way - Pioneer
The Department of Telecommunications' panel report on Net neutrality is seemingly well-intentioned, but it stumbles due to its effort to strike a middle ground and please all stakeholders. The report affirms the Government's commitment to the principles of neutrality, makes a strong case for user-rights on the Internet, and underlines the importance of protecting such rights.
Companies get more women to work in factories - Namrata Singh, Times of India
The participation of women workers in factories and the manufacturing process may not have gone beyond 10% overall, but a nail products factory of Hindustan Unilever (HUL) at Haridwar is changing that paradigm. It's being run by an all-women's team. While this is perhaps an industry first, many such big steps are now being taken by women workers in the FMCG industry.
Labour law & strike split trade unions - Telegraph
Two opposing views emerged on the Narendra Modi government's stand on labour laws after 21 representatives of trade unions met the Prime Minister and some of his colleagues today. The interaction took place against the backdrop of a national strike called by the trade unions on September 2 to protest the government's economic policies.
Railway unions, babus oppose Debroy reforms - Abhinandan Mishra, Sunday Guardian
The much expected reforms in the railway sector, guided by the recommendations of the Bibek Debroy Committee, could face roadblocks, with railway employee unions saying they will not allow the government to bring in what they call "large scale privatisation".
Bye bye, Posco - Financial Express
The latest reason for the $12 billion Posco plans in Odisha being shelved appears to be the lack of a valid mining license for iron ore—the mine allocated to Posco stands de-allocated after the mining law was changed in March, and the company now needs to participate in a new auction. 
Data Drive: Skilling them right - Financial Express
In yet another grand launch, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled Skill India, that looks to re-skill 402 million Indians by 2022. The initiative is being driven by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), a public private partnership initiative to develop and upgrade the skills of India’s growing workforce.
Taxing times - Business Line
India’s macroeconomic data has sent out confusing signals lately, but one indicator that is flashing bright green is the Centre’s indirect tax collections. The collections from excise duty, customs duty and service tax increased by an impressive 37.4 per cent from April to June 2015, compared to the same period last year. 
A steel plant for Jagatsinghpur either way? - Ruchira Singh, Mint
Whether Posco stays or leaves, a strong likelihood is that there would be a steel plant in Odisha’s Jagatsinghpur. Posco chief’s latest statement that the Indian plant project has been “tentatively postponed”—the poor latest quarter results showing a 76% fall in net profit, coupled with a decade-long wait to get the land for the plant—has once again led to speculation that Posco would announce a formal exit from Odisha.
E-commerce investors press the pause button - Ranju Sarkar, Business Standard
The sentiment of investors in e-commerce is changing. Though the monthly data on deal value and volume don't reflect this yet, in the past six months, the initial exuberance has given way to a reality check of sorts.
Flight safety: DGCA to crack down on erring airlines - Tushar Srivastava, HT
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has ordered a “surprise surveillance” of all Indian carriers to ensure that they are following flight safety rules. The order follows a July 7 HT report on an incident on Air India’s (AI) Bengaluru-Hyderabad flight 513 that allegedly had a narrow escape when the pilot did a “touch and go” after bouncing on the runway during landing.
