Maruti Suzuki Launches Estilo New Version of Maruti Zen Estilo

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Today, Maruti Suzuki launches its Estilo car. Estilo is new version of Maruti Zen Estilo. It was 1993 when Maruti was launched its ZEN car. In 2006 it launched new version of ZEN – Zen Estilo car. But it was not a successful product of Maruti Suzuki. Initially, it was launched in 3 colours. Now, Maritu introduces a new car which is not ZEN – Estilo. The company is the biggest competitor of Hyundai i10 and TATA’s small cars.

Maruti Suzuki is Indo-Japanese car Maker Company. It introduces new petrol version of Estilo on Rs 3.12 lakh and Rs 3.95 lakh prices. Mayank Pareek who is managing executive officer in-charge of marketing and sales of Maruti, said, “Estilo is a brand in itself and is very different from the Estilo we launched in 2006 or the Zen in 1993.” It means it is really a new product of the company.

Maruti Estilo has 998 cc engine, three-cylinder petrol engine fuel-efficiency and latest emission norms. The model will be produced in Gurgaon where already "A-Star" and "Ritz" products have been manufactured. It has 18.2 km per liter fuel efficiency. New Estilo introduces four more colours - ecru beige, emerald Blue, dusky brown and quantum orange. However, its existing ZEN Estilo colours are silky silver, superior white, bright red and midnight black.

The company has big expectation with this product. Expectation reaches on 3000 to 4000 model selling per month.

It is the biggest achievement of Maruti Suzuki which has changed its old name. It is about 16 years when Martuti has taken drastic steps in its model. However, ZEN was the most popular model of Maruti.

This step of the company will create more competition in car market. This upcoming Estilo car is more attractive than it’s previous. It is perfect in space and design from its previous version.

Union Budgets 2009-2010 Proclaimed the Development of Indian Villages

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Union Budgets 2009-2010
Till now, we all aware about union budgets 2009-2010. Yesterday, Pranab Mukherjee presents his 4th budgets in Parliament. Everything was not clear by that budget because presentation was not complete. But now, we have lots of data to analyze the reality of union budgets 2009-2010.

As per the statement of Pranab Mukherjee, “single budget can’t solve our all problems” is clear that he wants to say something more beyond the budget. PM has welcomed this and said that it will develop Indian rural areas. It is the positive budgets and we should welcome it. Lalu Yadav also welcomed the union budgets and said the budget has signified villages.

Congress Party says that the budget is for “Aam Admi”. Let’s see what the reality of the budget is.

If we run through the data then we will find easily there is nothing to stop recession and unemployment. Government has allocated a big amount for NREGA but what about those youth and young who are unemployed? By the NREGA they will give only 100 days guarantee. But what about remaining 265 days? Every year software industry is going in vain; every year lakh of youth being unemployed but government is doing nothing.

Another reality, government has said that every year 1.2 crore employment will be created. But what types of employment, for whom is not clear?

There is a big allotment for common wealth games also but there is nothing to stop higher prices. Every year government announces to reduce electronics prices but still I am waiting for that. There is nothing on the basic education.

Government will try to achieve 9% GDP growth but common people are looking for a job to survive their life. IT sector which cover more than 50% economy, there is nothing about that sectors employees.

Exemption limits have been raised minimal of 10000 for men and women. I think there is nothing for common people even for youth and young also which are base of the country. A large amount of money will be spent in the budget – 10.20 lakh crore.

From my point of view the union budget is for industrialists and capitalists not for common people. Common people will get only a drop of total economy.

Recession is for longer time in Economical Development

Saturday, March 7, 2009

Recession is not a problem of a short period but also it is problem of longer economical crisis. When we see Indian economy we found that year 2006-2008 recognized as economical development but in real it was not a development. In the capital development there was a seed of economic crisis. Many people are giving many theories but no one talking about capital crisis.

The recession is actually the crisis of capital. The cycle of capital not running easily because over productions have created the crisis. It is the basic things of capitalist systems. Before proceeding towards recession we should know about the capital and economic cycle.

Everyone knows that currently we have been living in market society. Not in a human society where everyone works to satisfy requires of each others. In the market society to survive our live we need a job. But for that job we return more production to our boss. The accumulation of that production increases day by day like Indian economy of 2006-2008. After the huge accumulation we find two pole – one is capital accumulation and another is society without money.

All the analysts of economic crisis are giving the theory to solve the problem for a while but no one wants to solve it permanently because they don’t want. Why they don’t want? They have accumulation of capital and they want to run the society by their market but in the higher stage of capitalism-imperialism there is need to change the society by people not by politician and not by the voting system.

Economic crisis can be solved by the people revolution otherwise the society will run in the crisis. Economic crisis bring the social crisis actually. We can see the cut off jobs, shutting down companies, distortion of technologies etc. All these are the value of society but the society is in the crisis. In the crisis of society we have to see – frustration, madness, robberies, communalism etc. So, there is only one option to stop recession – either change the society or go to hell.

Calculated EMI for Home Loans Interest Rate in India

Saturday, January 10, 2009

People say that home loans are easy available now, I am agreed. People say that home loans is now very lower interest, I am not agreed. I am not agreed because here is some cause which I am going to share that. I am agreeing because the crisis of economic has lent the home loan without down payment. Let’s read calculation of EMI for home loans interest rate in India from a blog below.

"Nowadays, in the Real Estate sector there is a revolution for mortgage loan. All the news paper and magazine are with full coverage of lower interest rates for home loans, lower EMI on home loans, lower mortgage interest rates etc. But what is the actual situation have to justify.

According to the SBI calculation on fixed 12% interest rate the EMI will be 867.82 now upto Rs. 5 lakh on per lakh for every month. Old EMI was 1,101.09 upto Rs. 5 lakh for per month on every Rs. 1 lakh. It means, your saving is about 233.37 up to Rs. 5 lakh for every month on per lakh.

For the Rs. 5 to 20 lakh new EMI will be 915.87 per month for every Rs. One lakh rather than 1,101.09 old EMI. It means, your saving is Rs. 185.22 for per one lakh amount if you get the home loan for Rs. 20 lakh for the 20 years tenures.

Overall your saving will be Rs. 185 to 233 for per lakh on the home loans for 20 years. It was the calculation on the basis of 12% fixed interest rate by State bank of India.

What is the reality of these loans? For example you borrow a loan amount of Rs. 20 lakh for the 20 years then what will be EMI?

According to the new EMI calculation you have to pay per month about Rs. 17356.4 if all the circumstances don’t change. However, your older calculated EMI was for Rs. 20 lakh per month – Rs. 22021.8.

You can just imagine that if you buy a home on the amount of Rs. 20 lakh then you have to pay total in 20 years Rs. 41,65,5,36. It means just double amount for that Rs. 20 lakh in 20 years.

So, in the Indian context you can imagine who can buy the flats to take loan by banks! It is the revolution of Indian Real Estate sectors and income and investment of Banks.

Another story says that you can borrow whole amount by banks on 0% down payment. Is it crisis or investment? However, the home loans or mortgage loans trends has been not increased as year of 2006-2007.

Total deduction in the percentage of interest rates is 1 to 1.5. The actual interest rates will follow with the monthly EMI on the basis of loan amounts and loan terms.

All the activities is the result of government pressure on banks due to economic crisis for the liquidate the capital in the consumers."
