Govt Magic Wand on Health Sector, time to Make it Effective

2/9/2021 10:50:00 AM

Fill in the details, create a login, get registered and you are being contacted, or call is being initiated, perfect initiatives have been taken. In the Covid-19 pandemic phase, sluggish things have happened, but some new ideas are originated for perpetual. Covid-19 Pandemic jolted the world by proving how health facilities are vulnerable and must be sprawled and effective. Although everything which affects our economy should be improved health is the first which affects a lot, or we can say that each citizen’s health contributes towards economy. Before the pandemic, things had been going as it is for many years without required amendments, but corona stimulated the world to be changed for very required reasons. Such changes have happened in the health sector although many people are not aware of such health facilities. Online Registration System (ORS) and E Sanjeevani OPD are among various online medical services portals. E Sanjeevani OPD is National Teleconsultation Service of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is first of its kind online OPD service offered by a country government to its citizens. The platform is available to people in 27 states and union territories. It is a big push for the 'Digital India' initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As many, big hospitals have come forward by creating an online platform for patients. Registration number, OPD Appointments, doctor-patient meet through video calling, and medical reports are being served under the online portal. Through an online portal, minor issues can be solved by sitting at home. No more travel harassment for mild medical issues. The Effective online portal will help the hospital crowd off and the physical visits would be happening in required cases. Time, Money and travel expense can be saved. It will be beneficial for the hospital too as a less human resource can provide their best services comparatively. During Pandemic, Online wave was seen in health sector among other prominent sectors and it has proved by doing work under these online platforms, productivity can be increased but it cannot be denied, these Medical online portals are doing their work as per web programming but the people who are working under these web systems are not doing their work in the required effective way. It is seen that government initiatives work like a magic wand but being a country citizen and Prominent organizations, we should put at least propositional efforts to make things happening only after those things can work properly. By developing OPD online Portals, a sigh of relief has been seen during the Pandemic. From my little experience with portals, I realized, these portals could be proved a game-changer if it would work most effectively. As the portal is patient-friendly, easy to operate and well managed but services that should be provided is not available in a better manner. General OPD & Specialty OPD should be opened on a timely basis and every each Token should be consulted as per queue. It is seen doctors do not be the online timely and patient end it up with waiting, most patients are not updated about their turn. India's economy is strong in its own way and citizen’s efforts can bring it to the next level. Where the world is deteriorated by corona, India fought with corona like strong warriors and helping the world like God Sakat Mochan Hanuman by giving swadeshi free vaccination. Time to boost Govt efforts to make the health sector strong and effective. Chandigarh

In Pandemic “Yeh Public Hai Yeh Sab Janti Hai”

4/28/2021 2:07:00 PM

Oxygen, Proper Hydration means Water, Healthy lifestyle & healthy food are trending aggressively these days. As a literate generation, we accumulated enough knowledge about body and soul before Pandemic but realize this profoundly now. 24x7 rushing for work,compromising with health, eat Junk food to save seconds to compete daily stuff and much more but why not Since childhood we are poured with competition from head to toe. From neighbours to relatives, we are compared with each other, so Ladies and Gentlemen don’t worry, it's not our fault I think we will have to start R & D to determine what is the root cause. Anyhow, let us not divert attention and just focus on immunity and health-related things. Newspapers, Radio, Tv Channels, and even almost every advertisement are talking about simple things immunity, proper hydration, exercise, good food, and of course vaccination is being seen as hope. It is seen nobody is talking about money in corona days to some extent. Politicians, Actors, Famous personalities, and the common man are being treated unbiasedly by monster corona and meanwhile, backbenchers and average school and college students are happy about the comeback of covid-19 although they don’t believe to express their happiness, viral messages, memes, and trending videos are not hidden from mobile users and social sites subscribers. On the other hand, the labour class, low-income group, small business, and even big ones are hit by the second wave it is like between the devil and the deep sea like circumstances in the pandemic. It is said, worse condition can be tackled only with attitude, means it is your attitude that can change the things positively. In Corona, the economy is jolted by the second wave where some are in between the devil and the deep sea like situation, some big personalities are busy in Twitter handle to only for emotional Tweets, begging with a loud voice, no donations and with Big Public Relation Team, somewhere, volunteers for their upcoming project promotions by giving stuff till their project profits. Another one working like helping hands in a worse situation. Free food Services, Free oxygen for needy and poor, Free Ambulance Services, oxygen langar, Services for covid victim’s body to Crematorium, Doctors, frontline Workers, army, Police, and many untold Anti Covid Heros are balancing the worse situation silently, they don’t have Public Relation services who will handle their brand value or name. One more thing is noticed “They are Silent, but Their Work is Loud”. In this condition “Yeh Jo Public Hai Yeah Sab Janti Hai” is fitted perfectly. In this time, we should help each other honestly, if we cannot, at least we can take care of ourselves from covid-19 so that others can be facilitated with medical services and other things which we would have if we were infected.

Sophia Emotions, Technology and Japan virtual tour over less time frame

6/6/2021 4:26:00 PM

“Two minutes noodles” can understand better, how time is precious. As human is being busy, things have been transformed accordingly. Since sunrise to moon arrival, we try to make things easy so that time could be contained. We are not alone in life long drive, but we help each other to reach our destination. It is observed, the human being is curious since his birth and wants to know each and everything that is happening around. To save time, the news channels have started news hundred countdown, where you at least could grab entire news under “ho jao intelligent minto mai” idea. Subsequently, it also helps to sharp your rhyming couplet skill. “ho Jao intelligent minto mai” is one of among inspired rhyming couplet skill. Unlike news headlines, we got to know about our kid's adventures with explanation by our neighbors, as detail news after headlines, I agree with neighbors, some things should be presented in a terrible sprinkling manner. Neighbors are very good source of surveillance for kids as well as your entire family by their right “pair of binoculars”, their services are lifetime and absolute free. Even, without giving instructions, they look forward to provide their services. Apart from neighbors, whatsapp status, facebook and instagram post will let you know about their adventures. And in extreme cases hidden cameras will unfold their apocryphal tales made by them. There was a time where wives were spying on their beloved spouse by making frequent calls. Eavesdropping was also a trustworthy tool for them. It is sheer truth, Problems are the only source of Invention. Now vidio call helps your "Better Half" to be stressed out. But technology doing its work in an unbiased manner, and I hope a virtual reality and augmented reality will do justice equally. It is a very common thing in every element of technology, you can catch up on your target by sitting on well padded couch. In the previous year, some countries banned vedio calls over security reasons, however, later, govt had to permit VoIP apps with guidelines to be used. As a “ho jao intelligent minto mai” volunteer, instead of nicotine beverages, I believe to stir “Vita” powder in whole milk so that entire day I can do intelligent activities. Calling, pop out messages for clients, vedio calls and conferencing are among which we have to do frequently. And in Pandemic lockdown these digital tools proved that importance. Every person is always connected with their dreams emotionally. Where Sites visits for “ Dream Home” was done physically, it is done virtually now, It shows business intelligence. Although the final site visit has to be done by own over emotional perspective. Personally, I believe, all tasks should not be done digitally, for instance, home warming party is done by “Artificial Intelligence”. While written artificial intelligence, I remembered “Sophia” a social humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. Sophia was first turned on on February 14, 2016, and made her first public appearance at the South by Southwest Festival in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States. Sophia is powered to display more than 50 facial expressions. Joy, grief, curiosity, confusion, contemplation, sorrow, frustration, among other feelings. The kind humanoid robot visited India for the first time in December 2017. She graced the stage at IIT- Bombay for about 20 minutes where it spoke about the growing intolerance in the world and advised the human race to be "kind" to fellow creatures. It is highly appreciable “Humanoid Robot” has emotions and her advise let me force to think we should express our emotions too with huge intelligence. As we Indians often give a sign of emotions once in a while. India is a culture enriched country. As a sign of respect, we reach down to touch the elder’s feet. “Namaste” is also the Indian form of greeting, to greet someone with a namaste, bring your hands together with palms touching in front of your chest gracefully. On the festival side, we ignite ghee lamp on “DIWALI” with gratitude and try to distribute self-made sweets instead of well-packed chocolates. However, to save our time, we cook “Two-minute noodles”, boiled or scrambled eggs, but in festivals, we believe to cook food by spending many hours to display mouth-watering traditional colorful culinary. In the technology era we love to click photos before eat and promptly post in various digital platforms to lure likes. And with in seconds inundated thumps up are on posted clicks. In some cases we call many to like post and sometimes we show anger to not give thumps up into post, vedio calls are often made too. During my “Virtual Japan Tour”, I preferred “Green Tea” not as a substitute for “Vita milk”. But, in order to feel a foreign tour in “Actual”. Green tea is undoubtedly the most popular tea in Japan. In my close inspection, I found, Japanese are quite shy and conservative as sort of Indians. Japanese greet each other by bowing. A deeper and longer bow indicates respect and while handshake, they practice to avoid eye contact as it is considered rude. It is good to exchange gifts with each other with both hands showing respect. One should be refuse a gift up to three times before finally accepting. On tour, meanwhile, some “Pop-Ups” made me laugh. I had to make sure, I tried to cover my mouth while laughing, as In Japan, covering mouth while laughing means not showing your exact reactions. Moreover, it helps to keep your emotions subtle and shy. This is also considered graceful for ladies in Japan. I will have to make sure, during my next virtual tour, I need to sit on an acupressure active chair instead of a well padded couch for not forgetting, I am not to “Actual” but to “Virtual tour".

Flexible workplace operators to offer incentives to tenant

6/16/2021 10:20:00 AM

Flexible workplace operators have started doling out oers to retain tenants as many states have allowed reopening of oices from Monday. “We are currently working closely with our existing clients to oer good deals,” said Amit Ramani, founder & CEO of Aws. “We have restructured deals and allowed delay in payments wherever it was required by the clients to sustain their business in the second wave of the pandemic.” According to international property consultant CBRE, on the back of the hybrid space demand, expansion across cities and sustained funding, India’s exible oice stock is expected to grow by 10-15% (y-o-y) from the current 36 million sq ft in the next three years. “For new customers, we are being extremely exible in our partnerships with them. In our experience, that’s the ideal way to handle the current situation as there is no one-size-ts-all when it comes to oering support to customers,” said Ramani. According to Ankit Gupta, regional director at Realistic Realtors, the space that was earlier available for Rs 15,000 per seat, is now being oered at Rs 10,000 per seat. “Furthermore, premium spaces on MG Road or Golf Course Road (in Gurgaon) that were previously priced at Rs 35,000-40,000 per seat, are now priced at Rs 24,000-25,000 per seat. Flexible oice options with cost optimization are the way to go, and co-working companies are currently oering lucrative deals to entice clients,” Gupta said. Co-working spaces are becoming the rst choice for corporates and startups due to their low cost and no long-term commitment model. The Oice Pass (TOP), which oers spaces close to residential societies, is oering six months free pass to those starting business during the pandemic. “Tenants need some hand holding and these are tough times and businesses are facing loss,” said Nikhil Madan, co-founder of The Oice Pass. “We are oering a free pass for six months to support small and micro businesses. Up to three members can come and work at any of our centres.” Some oice players are coming up with innovative models and restructuring their existing and new deals to suit the client’s demands. “At Skootr, we are encouraging our existing clients to discuss our innovative nancial solutions to reduce their cash ows,” said Rahul Sarin, national business head at Skootr FinSave. “For new clients, under our ‘nsave model’, tout as a service allows them between 15% and 20% savings over traditional capex.” Before the second wave of Covid, the market witnessed an increase of 5% in the rst quarter of 2021 compared to the Q4 of 2020. The requirement is now more driven in the form of exible oice spaces like managed, co-working or serviced oice spaces primarily because companies don't want to spend on the capex, and secondly, they would want to retain exibility in these uncertain times. “These are exceptionally diicult times and we are supporting all of our customers and employees during this unprecedented period,” said Harsh Lambah, country manager India and vice president sales-South Asia at International orkplace Group (IWG). “All of our centres across India remain open operating to the highest international hygiene and safety protocols in accordance with WHO guidelines.” Source: The Economic Times INDIA

Peripheral areas are the latest preferred realty destinations in cities

6/17/2021 10:10:00 AM

The pandemic has changed consumer behaviour in the real estate business with the city peripheral areas now emerging as the topmost choice for homebuyers as well as developers. The pattern emerging over the last 12-15 months clearly reveals that the supply is chasing demand. As much as 58% of around 149,000 homes launched in 2020-21 are located in the peripheral areas of the top seven property markets, showed data from Anarock Research. The proportion of these launches in peripheral areas has been rising since the past two years but the pandemic has exacerbated the change. In 2018-19, the share of new launches in the peripheral locations was around 51% of about 229,000 homes launched in these cities. In 2019-20, over 207,000 new units hit these markets and the peripheral areas accounted for a 53% share. “Homebuyer preferences changed perceptibly post the pandemic,” said Anuj Puri, chairman, Anarock Property Consultants. “The previous ‘walk-to-work’ concept no longer leads home buying decisions. Instead, bigger and more affordable properties in greener, less polluted areas found favour, driven by work-from-home and e-schooling compulsions as well as safety concerns.” “Developers have quickly changed track and those with land banks in the peripheries, and even otherwise, saw it an opportune time to launch new projects there,” Puri added. The sales pattern also reveal a rising demand in such locations as around 54% of over 151,000 units sold across the top seven cities in 2020-21 were in the peripheral areas. “The conversion of demand into actual sales due to location and affordable price point has been encouraging,” said Ashok Chhajer, chairman at Arihant Superstructures, which focuses on the affordable housing in Navi Mumbai, Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and Jodhpur region. “We have sold apartments worth over Rs 125 crore across our 10 ongoing projects and two new launches during the second wave of Covid-19 in the last two months as homebuyers now prefer gated communities.” The listed company has sold over 260 apartments during this period and around 106 houses out of total sales were achieved through digital launches of its projects. Among the top cities, Pune saw the most launches in its peripheral areas—76% of 29,950 units launched in 2020-21, led by Mulshi, Pirangut, Daund, Chakan, Chikhali, Kamshet, and Undri. During this period, MMR had 67%, while Delhi-NCR, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad saw 45%-57% supply coming from such peripheral locations. Not surprisingly, new supply housing in these cities’ key peripheral micromarkets rose markedly between April 2020 to March 2021. According to Puri, it is very likely that some of the major office occupiers will soon de-centralize and bring their offices closer to their employees’ homes in these peripheries. New developments in the peripheries reduce the stress on the choked citycentres, and they become increasingly viable with ongoing infrastructure projects such as metros and ring roads, which will boost their connectivity to the city centres. Many peripheral micro-markets where demand remained muted before the pandemic are now seeing renewed demand and supply. The previous desire to live in city centres—closer to workspaces, children’s school, etc—has reduced markedly with the advent of WFH and e-schooling options in the post-pandemic world. People now prefer to live in bigger, open and green spaces in peripheries and that too at affordable rates. Source: Naredco INDIA

‘Commercial Realty to Stay Under Pressure in Near Term’

6/18/2021 11:47:00 AM

The commercial real estate sector will continue to face pressure in the near term because of the Covid-related disruptions in the office and retail leasing segments, a report has forecast. With the second wave peaking in the first quarter of FY22, the sector is expected to confront similar challenges as in the previous financial year, the Icra Ratings report said. While the retail leasing segment prospects are closely linked to the recovery in retail sales and discretionary consumption spending by the urban population, demand recovery in the office leasing segment is influenced by multiple factors as corporates evaluate the challenges and opportunities created by the pandemic on their real estate resource planning, it said. “Though cash flows remained materially unimpacted in FY21, we are seeing increasing vacancy levels in the rated portfolio as the pandemic has resulted in deferment of new leasing transactions by tenants, while the available inventory builds up in line with scheduled completions,” Icra Group Head and Senior Vice President, Corporate Ratings, Shubham Jain said. The delay in the conclusion of new leasing is on account of multiple factors, including restrictions on international travel and deferment of decision making, until there is clarity on employees returning to offices at earlier numbers, he said. To some extent, corporates could also be evaluating the potential for them to reduce their real estate footprint through the implementation of hybrid work models, including work-from- home, flexible-seating, among others, he noted. “While the factors that have supported high level of absorption of office space in the country in the past – including abundant and cost-competitive talent pool – remain intact, the evolving work practices in response to the pandemic may create, at best, a temporary deferment of leasing decisions or, in the worst case, a permanent reduction in the demand for real estate space,” Jain said. According to the report, until the implications of the pandemic on the demand trends become clear over the medium term, portfolios with moderate leverage and a low share of under- construction assets will be better placed to weather the short-term challenges such as a drop in occupancy or lower than anticipated growth in rent rates. A sustained gap in the demand-supply position, which can spill over into reduction of rent rates or occupancies in the broader market, will be a key monitorable, it said. Icra said the cash flow pressures on the retail leasing segment are more evident in the near term as state-level lockdowns and restrictions on mall operations impact the tenants’ revenues and will translate into rent concessions being granted by mall operators. As retail operations eventually recover from the impact of the pandemic, the rental collections are also expected to revert to the earlier levels, the report noted. The timeline will depend on the pace of vaccinations in the target consumer segment for retail malls, as well as the revival in consumer sentiments following the adverse impact that the second wave had on disposable incomes. “The first wave resulted in a reduction in net operating income of malls by up to 50 per cent in FY21. However, the recovery in operating metrics witnessed in the second half of last fiscal would have been heartening for the industry. The prospects for such a steep recovery in FY22 could be dampened by the income shock created by the second wave due to the associated healthcare costs that many families incurred,” Jain noted. In addition, he said, the possibility of subsequent waves will weigh on the decision-making by authorities regarding relaxation of restrictions as well as the propensity for visitors to return for non-essential shopping and leisure.
