    India will continue to be the fastest  growing market for luxury writing instruments and accessories maker Montblanc

    India will continue to be the fastest growing market for luxury writing instruments and accessories maker Montblanc, according to its chief executive, Nicolas Baretzki. Despite challenges in locating premium real estate in tier 2 cities for expansion, Montblanc’s sales in smaller towns have been growing through its joint venture with Indian watchmaker Titan and new ecommerce channels, Baretzki said on the sidelines of a store launch in the city.

    The German luxury maison has 10 boutiques in the country and plans to open five new stores every year for the next three years, Baretzki said. “Boutiques in tier 2 and 3 cities, and the new network through the ecommerce platform will keep India at the top in terms of percentage growth,” Baretzki said. “It will definitely be much faster than any other mature market with large coverage where the growth is more on a like-for-like basis.”

    “Legislation that supports effective recovery of paper and paper-based packaging, fair treatment of paper bags and sound energy policy will go a long way toward helping Massachusetts companies achieve that goal.

    Xerox (NYSE: XRX) Vice Chairman and CEO John Visentin sent a letter to Fujifilm Chairman Shigetaka Komori responding to the lawsuit filed by Fujifilm.

    “Fujifilm should realize that the internal accounting issues at Fuji Xerox were a result of their mismanagement, which made it impossible to close the announced transaction” said Visentin. “We cannot stand by and let them further harm our iconic brand. The lawsuit is nothing more than a desperate and misguided negotiating ploy to save their takeover attempt, which to this day remains enjoined by order of the New York State Supreme Court, and could take our focus away from serving our customers.”

    It has been sometime we’ve not talked about our industry Tuli Paper Mill. The mill has been defunct for some years now, and I feel that we, as citizens of Nagaland have a right, as well as a duty to know the status about it. The Government of India has time and again been trying to revive the Mill in words and deeds. As per the new DPR the Government of India has approved to sanction amount of Rs. 679 Cr. out of which an amount of Rs.100 Crore has already been released for its speedy revival on 19.09.2013. 

     

    The Nagaland Pulp & Paper Company Limited (NPPCL) reportedly has received only Rs. 33 Crore from the above amount and though with limited fund, the NPPCL has been trying to uplift the mill by machinery maintenance, renovation of the building and so on. The old rusted machines are being sold out on scraps to release them with new ones. The rehabilitation works is being suspended since 2015. It is pertinent to state here that the salary of its employees are still pending, forget about other service benefits. In such a scenario, I feel that we have a right to know when the funds are being released and to whom the funds are being pumped in.

    In a first of its kind venture, a city-based startup is making pencils with waste paper instead of using wood. The box used for the pencils is also made of non-plastic paper packaging.

    Lavinesh Dayalani, who is born and raised in Aurangabad, gave shape to his idea in March when he launched his Bhoomi Eco. He says, "A global study has revealed that every year 82,000 trees are cut down to produce more than 14 billion pencils in the world. Another industrial survey done at national level states that India has 1.5 million schools and students above 315 million. Indian schools have made the use of pencils compulsory till 4th standard. Therefore, the writing instrument industry in India is estimated at a whopping Rs. 2600 crore."

    The statistics led the commerce graduate to usher into the eco-friendly pencil industry. Bhoomi Eco, which has its manufacturing facility at Chennai, has women from self-help groups working for it. The women are engaged in rolling the paper around the graphite lead. We use paper rolling method with toxin-free glue. "This process keeps lead at centre and provides good grip and prevents from breaking," Lavinesh says.
