Increased VAT rates at bStore

“Those goods which attract a tax of 5% and 14% will now be taxed at the rate of 5.5% and 14.5% respectively.”
The State Government on Last Friday increased the VAT rates by 0.5 % to make up for the Rs. 3,200 Crore additional burden on the state exchequer due to its ambitious farm loan waiver scheme.
Chief minister Jagadish Shettar announced in the assembly that an additional 0.5 % tax will be levied on goods belonging to two slabs or schedules (5% and 14%). New tax rate comes into effect from August 1, 2012 for a period of one year.

Price hike across all Grains, Pulses & Flours

According to Mr. Ashok Gulati, Chairman, Commission of Agriculture Costs and Prices told the Economic Times on 21 July, “The situation is alarming. The food grains output is likely to be down by around 15 million tonnes. Dip in pulses production would be a great problem, we will then have to import pulses in huge quantity. Since pulses producing countries are limited, the prices of pulses will go up.

Prices of oilseeds and pulses are firming up in India because globally soft commodity prices are on the rise following the worst drought in 50 years in the US and a heat wave in southern Europe, which will reduce the yield of oil seeds, corn and wheat.

Pulses such as chana and oil seeds – mustard seed, soyabean, cotton seed, and castor seed futures have rallied up between 15-26% on the NCDEX Exchange since their April lows, stoking fear that food inflation may not just be a home grown problem, but a global issue that will affect imports as well.

From the past 45 days our sourcing prices of Grains & Pulses have increased up to 15 – 27.5%.

Considering the potential behind this price hike, Our team is working closely with the new set of vendors to bring an alternative cost effective products at bStore to help you to manage your food costing. As a result, you will be finding lot of new alternative product entries at bStore.

"Cloud computing will be highly disruptive"

Bangalore: Cloud computing was a big focus of discussion at the Product Conclave. Sharad Sharma, chair of the conclave, called it a “major generational disruption”. 

M R Rangaswami, co-founder of management consultancy Sand Hill Group, said a survey among CIOs found that cloud computing today is in the position that the internet was 
in 1997. “Everybody at that point felt the internet would be big and disruptive, but nobody was sure what exactly would happen. And then things like Google happened. It’s like that with cloud computing now,” he said. Cloud computing, he said, forms about 3% of IT budgets now, but is expected to go up to 20-30% in three years. 

Amitabh Srivastava, senior VP of Microsoft’s server and cloud division, referred to a Gartner report that said 80% of Fortune 1,000 enterprises would be using some cloud computing services by 2012, and that 20% of businesses will own no IT assets, being totally dependent on the cloud. 


He said that small and medium businesses were currently more open to adopting cloud computing, since they find immediate value in the cloud’s ability to lower significantly the cost of IT and accelerate the time to market. “In larger enterprises, CIOs are conservative. They are trying out cloud computing in some areas,” he said.
