When the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was about to take off, one side that looked the most menacing – at least on paper – was Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The first glimpse of the line-up easily reminded one of the term ‘galactico’, now famous in the world of football for describing either a superstar signing or being transferred for an exorbitant price. The term is more commonly used for every big player Real Madrid signed during the year 2000.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai doubled the amount he made in 2015, as he received nearly $199.7 million in compensation last year.

Mumbai: The market benchmark BSE Sensex hit a soft patch for the second day running as it retreated from record highs to close below the 30,000-mark on Friday after investors pocketed gains ahead of an extended weekend.

The 30-share Sensex opened higher, but failed to hold on to the 30,000-level, touching an intra-day low of 29,848.21 as investors booked profits in recent gainers.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Friday filed its draft letter of offer with Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) to buy back its shares for an amount of Rs 16,000 crore.

The offer represents 2.85% of the total paid-up equity share capital of the company. The offer is 25% higher than the closing price of the stock of Rs 2,272.10 on Friday on Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).

Kotak Mahindra Bank (KMB) said on Friday it has entered into an agreement to purchase the entire 26% equity stake held by the UK’s Old Mutual (OM) in Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life Insurance for Rs 1,292.7 crore.

Mahindra & Mahindra says its farm equipment division head Rajesh Jejurikar is on a mission. And the mission resonates with that of the government.

Introspecting the non-compliance of tax havens with currency and fiscal reforms, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday asserted that it is important for the Indian economy to move from a non-compliant to a highly-compliant state.

Swamy told ANI, "There is no doubt that in Islamic practice and preaching women have been given second or third class status. Triple talaq, marrying four wives tradition are examples of that."
