Radio City, India’s leading radio network has once again emerged as the number 1 FM broadcaster as per the recent AZ Research Baseline Study 2018. With listenership amassing a whopping 6.7 crores across 34 markets, Radio City has consolidated its PAN India leadership position and reiterated its popularity amongst radio fans in the country.  The report summarizes city wise as well as zone wise listenership data and shows trends in each part of the country.

Radio City achieved the highest listenership of 86 lakhs in Mumbai and topped the charts in Pune (40 lakh), Nagpur (20 lakh), Nagar (7 lakh), Baroda (11 lakh), Surat (35 lakh) and Jaipur (19 lakh), thereby achieving the highest listenership of 2.9 crores in the West zone. Similarly, the South Zone and North Zone also witnessed Radio City dominating the markets with top listenership of 1.8 crores and 1.9 crores respectively. Some of the noteworthy highlights of this performance include Radio City attaining the highest listenership of 59 lakhs and 103 lakhs in Bangalore and Delhi respectively.

Radio City’s continued dominance in listenership is a direct reflection of the successful philosophy of ‘Rag Rag Mein Daude City’ that aims to invoke the feeling of city passion amongst the citizens. It also galvanizes a stronger emotional connect through a ‘micro local’ content approach that depicts the city’s fabric, culture and nuances. Read more

HDFC Bank’s Treasury Research Team’s Report on RBI Policy Watch: The Long and Winding Price Road


By K Ashwin Mobile: 09920183006 Email:indianshowbusiness@gmail.com

Mr. Abheek Barua, Chief Economist, HDFC Bank

Today’s policy decision suggests that the RBI seems to be taking a long term view on inflation rather than remaining purely data dependent. The discussion on the possible increase in inflation early next year (Estimate of Q1 2019-20 to 5%) as well the assertion that policy rate changes impact the real economy with a lag (with a shorter lag in transmitting to lending rates) corroborates this.

  • Also, RBI’s statements on increasing external risks and discussions on currency contagion (currency war) in the press conference, confirms our belief that the RBI is not in favour of excess depreciation and seems to want to hold on to a certain exchange rate level. A rate hike is a textbook method of defending a currency.
  • Given the upside risks to inflation, discussed extensively, another policy rate hike cannot be ruled out. However, if there is an escalation in trade war risks and a resultant global output compression then the RBI could be prompted to stay on a prolonged pause.
  • The RBI committed that liquidity conditions would be maintained close to the neutral level. This means the supply side pressures in the second half of this year could be offset by OMOs but it is unlikely that we will have any liquidity surplus. We expect OMO purchases to the tune of INR 800bn in 2018-19, including INR 300bn done so far.
  • The bond market seems to have reacted in a positive way to the rate hike (decline in 10 year yield by 6bps). This we believe is in response to the RBI’s commitment to keep the liquidity situation neutral instead of allowing the system to move into a large deficit.
  • We believe, that another rate hike is still on the table and as a result bond yields could continue to go up (after today’s relief rally). In this regard, it’s important to watch out for the inflation readings in September and October (which could be reflective of the impact of higher MSPs). Even without a major uptick in inflation, the sheer supply of government bonds (states and centre) could keep the yields elevated. Important to note, so far only 20% of the budgeted borrowings for centre and state governments has been done with majority of the supply expected to come in the second half of the year. Read more

Infosys Research: Digital Disruption is Steering Enterprises from Core Modernization to Delivering Customer Delight


By Vivek K. Mobile: 09920183006 Email:indianshowbusiness@gmail.com

Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in consulting, technology, and next-generation services, today released global research that provides insights into how and why organizations are adopting and investing in new digital technologies and strategies. The research report ‘How enterprises are steering through digital disruption’, was compiled by interviewing 1,000 senior IT and business decision makers in organizations across seven countries.

Currently, enterprises are using digital technologies across a variety of areas in their core IT management (79 percent), business process management (60 percent) and customer relationship management (62 percent). This establishes digital-ready enterprises as those that are continuously investing in reinventing their businesses from the core including processes and systems, with as much enthusiasm as their customer touchpoints and journeys. The research also found that respondents’ organizations are looking to utilize digital technologies (if they haven’t already) across knowledge management (33 percent), operational intelligence (31 percent) and product development (28 percent).

Disruptive digital technologies continue to equip enterprises to consume and analyze data to improve business, both by reimagining processes and experiences. 67 percent of organizations that participated in the study are leveraging big data analytics. Over half of these organizations have already made investments in deep learning algorithms of AI.

The research also revealed that customer centric technology investments are among the top three priorities for all industries except Manufacturing and CPG. Life Sciences leads the way (86 percent investing in technology for patient centricity during clinical trials), followed by Retail (79 percent investing in augmented reality for virtual stores) and Banking (75 percent investing in opti-channel for better customer experience). These technologies are also among the top priorities in Insurance (to encourage insurance buying behavior), Utilities (for omnichannel customer engagement), healthcare (to predict onset of health conditions) and Automotive (for connected cars).

Infosys Research: Business Leaders Adapt as Enterprise AI Moves Beyond Experimentation


By  Vivek K.  Mobile: 09920183006  Email:indianshowbusiness@gmail.com

Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in consulting, technology, and next-generation services, today released global research on the impact artificial intelligence (AI) technology implementations in the enterprise are having on return-on-investment (ROI), the workforce and organizational leadership. The research report, Leadership in the Age of AI, surveyed more than 1,000 business and IT leaders with decision-making power over AI solutions or purchases at large organizations across seven countries.


The research findings point to a fundamental shift in how enterprises operate as AI takes hold. Enterprises are moving beyond the experimentation phase with AI, deploying AI technologies more broadly and realizing benefits across their business. According to the survey, 73 percent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that their AI deployments have already transformed the way they do business, and 90 percent of C-level executives reported measurable benefits from AI within their organization. Additionally, the data showed organizations are taking steps to prepare employees and business leaders for the future of work, with 53 percent of respondents indicating that their organization has increased training in the job functions most affected by AI deployments.


Mohit Joshi, President, Infosys: “While it’s fair to say that, like most promising new technologies, there has been a tremendous amount of hype around AI, it turns out that the vast majority of enterprises with AI deployments are realizing clear and measureable results. AI, as the research shows, is becoming core to business strategy, and is compelling business leaders to alter the way they hire, train and inspire teams, and the way they compete and foster innovation. Industry disruption from AI is no longer imminent, it is here. The organizations that embrace AI with a clearly defined strategy and use AI to amplify their workforce rather than replace it, will take the lead, and those that don’t will fall behind or find themselves irrelevant.” Read more

ICICI Lombard General Insurance, one of the leading general insurance companies in the country, has commissioned an all India research entitled ‘Readiness of India Inc. with respect to Risk Management’. The research was conducted through online interviews with 130 C-suite risk officers, to identify the risk practices adopted by Indian organizations.

The research elucidates Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as a mechanism which combines culture, capabilities and practices with strategy setting and its execution to manage risks in order to create, persevere and realize value. While the key risk areas perceived by India Inc. include regulatory compliance (53%) and operational concerns (50%); 27% of the respondents believe geopolitical uncertainty to be a risk factor. Whereas, 23% claim uncertain economic growth can lead to increasing risks. Interestingly, only 23% respondents perceived information insecurity as a key risk while 11% believe technological disruption was a risk area. This could be because of the limited risk exposures that companies would have experienced directly. Read more
