MarcaTel plans public #WiFi #hotspots via #Franchisee Network

MarcaTel, a division of LaMarca Knowledge and Services Pvt. Ltd. has a tie-up with Bluetown India (a wholly subsidiary of Denmark based Bluetown ApS, working in the field of WiFi technology) to provide complete end-to-end solution for WiFi data connectivity across the country.

According to Narayanan Rajagopalan, President and Chief Executive Officer, MarcaTel a person can be an owner of a Wi-Fi tower with an investment of Rs.6 lakh. The company will put up the mast, manage it and provide the broadband, which the franchisee can price according to their needs. “It is like a Cafe Coffee Day model. The franchisee can keep 50 per cent of the revenue generated,” he added.
The solution comes with three antennas, a base transceiver station and a power supply unit. “We understand power issues in the country; the tower comes with a 650V inverter (14-15 hour backup), enough to tide over shortages.”
Also, MarcaTel operates on a free band, which does not need government licence or local civic bodies permission for installation and operation, factors which have been deterrents in the past. Rajagopalan does a back-of-the-envelope calculations and says if a tower has 300 customers with an average revenue per user of Rs.500, a franchisee can earn Rs.1,50,000.

Invest only in authorised Chit Funds to avoid chit fund scam

Bengaluru: There are only 30,000 registered chit operators in India as against few lakhs of unauthorised chitsters. It is the high time to publicise the benefit from chits run by the authorised chitsters so as to protect the people from the hands of unauthorised chitsters, this was highlighted during a Chit Fund industry body meeting in Bengaluru today.Chit Funds address gaps left by the traditional banking sector. They mobilize huge amounts of small savings, and in return allow members to have access in the form of loans to lump sum amount of money that they would often not be able to get from the formal banking. Easy accessibility and flexibility are important aspects of this form of financing. The Chit Fund Act, 1982 is obsolete and needs amendment to several provisions that are inconsistent to the present times and practically not possible to adhere to.
It may be noted that recently Kannada actor Sanjjanaa Galrani and many investors are said to be been duped by Malleswaram based Prasiddhi Chit Funds Pvt Ltd.

The company is accused of duping investors of Rs 1.3 crore. Sanjjanaa alone is said to have been cheated of Rs 28 lakh. Based on her complaint, the Malleswaram police registered an FIR against the owner of the chit fund.
