INKredible: Write Clean, Crispy Notes on Your Phone
With all the advancements in keyboards, writing has not yet gone out of fashion. And if you have to draw figures to prove a point, you don’t have much of a choice. INKredible is an app which helps you do just that—write on your smartphone / tablet with a stylus.
 
When you write on your smartphone with a stylus, you observe that it can get incredibly irritating because your palm and wrist keep making marks on the screen. INKredible is a tool which helps you avoid that. So you get clean and crispy notes and diagrams without the hassles of smudges.
 
It helps you write on phones and tablets distraction-free. Most of the time, you will just see a blank sheet to write on, with the user interface cleverly hidden. It is free and worth a try for those who avoid using the stylus just because they get irritated using it! For more options, there are in-app purchase facilities available.

Google Handwriting is far superior. You write with your finger and it immediaely tranforms it into typewritten matter. In local languages too.

Nifty, Sensex in bull grip – Thursday closing report
We had mentioned in Wednesday’s closing report that Nifty, Sensex might be headed higher. The major indices of the Indian stock markets rallied on Thursday and closed with gains of around 0.60% over Wednesday’s close. The trends of the major indices in the course of Thursday’s trading are given in the table below:
 
 
The Indian equity markets on Thursday closed at new highs in almost a year, riding on short covering and expectations of a major economic legislation getting parliament's approval. On a closing basis, the wider 51-scrip Nifty of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) touched a new 52-week high. The 30-scrip sensitive index (Sensex) of the BSE also reached its highest closing levels in 11 months. Healthy buying was witnessed in consumer durables, automobiles and FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) stocks. On the NSE, there were 818 advances, 638 declines and 62 unchanged. The BSE market breadth was slightly tilted in favour of the bulls -- with 1,486 advances and 1,164 declines.
 
The government is carefully considering the suggestions made by the trade and industry on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, a top CBEC official said here on Thursday. "We have been receiving a large number of representations from trade and industry. This is a very healthy exercise and all these suggestions and views will go into making an ideal GST," Mahender Singh, Director General (GST), Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC), said. He was speaking at a national conference on draft GST law organised by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham). "It (suggestions on GST) is considered, discussed and various aspects are taken into consideration and once the final decision is taken then that will be incorporated in the final GST law," Mahender Singh said. He said some sections of the trade and industry have apprehensions that their views may not be taken into consideration. It is understandable, he said, for people to have such apprehensions in a large country with a wide variety of trade practices. 
 
Banking operations will be impacted across the country on Friday with around 10 lakh bankers of 40 private and state-run banks striking work in protest against the central government's banking policies, a union leader said on Thursday. "The strike is on. We are not aware of any case filed by the banks or the Indian Banks Association (IBA) to restrain the nine unions of UFBU (United Forum of Bank Unions) from striking," C.H. Venkatachalam, General Secretary of the All India Bank Employees Association said. Earlier this month, major bank unions deferred a two-day strike call for July 12 and 13 following a restraint order by the Delhi High Court. The unions in the banking sector had given the strike call protesting against the merger of the five associate banks of the State Bank of India (SBI) with SBI and the privatisation of IDBI Bank. The union is opposed to the government's decision to merge the State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur (SBBJ), State Bank of Travancore (SBT), State Bank of Patiala (SBP), State Bank of Mysore (SBM) and State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH) with the SBI. "The strike will involve employees and officers of public sector banks, old generation private banks and foreign banks with a total of more than 80,000 branches," he said. According to him, the banks may be filling up the automatic teller machines (ATM) numbering around 200,000 in the country to facilitate cash withdrawals. "We wanted to strike when Parliament is in session. Though the strike is on a Friday, the next day is a full working day for the banks. There will be no bunching of holidays," he said. Venkatachalam said the strike was against the unwarranted banking reform measures. The Bank Nifty closed at 19,076.55, up 0.29%.
 
US Federal Reserve on Wednesday kept federal funds rate unchanged, reiterating that it continues to closely monitor inflation indicators and global economic and financial developments. "Near-term risks to the economic outlook have diminished," said the Fed in a statement after concluding two-day monetary policy meeting. This new expression might indicate that conditions are getting more favourable for further interest rate hikes in the future. Fed officials gave more upbeat description of the economy. There was some increase in labour utilisation in recent months, pointing to a healthy labour market despite the slowdown in April and May. Household spending have grown "strongly." Inflation continues to run below the Fed's 2% target, a major concern for Fed officials. But they expected inflation to rise to the target over the medium term as the transitory effects of past declines in energy and import prices dissipate and the labour market strengthens further. The policy to keep interest rates unchanged is good news for emerging markets like India, as it attracts foreign institutional investors.

Bank strike to hit operations on Friday
Banking operations will be impacted across the country on Friday with around 10 lakh bankers of 40 private and state-run banks striking work in protest against the central government's banking policies, a union leader said on Thursday.
 
"The strike is on. We are not aware of any case filed by the banks or the Indian Banks Association (IBA) to restrain the nine unions of UFBU (United Forum of Bank Unions) from striking," C.H. Venkatachalam, General Secretary of the All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA), told IANS.
 
Earlier this month, major bank unions deferred a two-day strike call for July 12 and 13 following a restraint order by the Delhi High Court.
 
The unions in the banking sector had given the strike call protesting against the merger of the five associate banks of the State Bank of India (SBI) with SBI and the privatisation of IDBI Bank.
 
The union is opposed to the government's decision to merge the State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur (SBBJ), State Bank of Travancore (SBT), State Bank of Patiala (SBP), State Bank of Mysore (SBM) and State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH) with the SBI.
 
"The strike will involve employees and officers of public sector banks, old generation private banks and foreign banks with a total of more than 80,000 branches," he said.
 
According to him, the banks may be filling up the automatic teller machines (ATM) numbering around 200,000 in the country to facilitate cash withdrawals.
 
"We wanted to strike when Parliament is in session. Though the strike is on a Friday, the next day is a full working day for the banks. There will be no bunching of holidays," he said.
 
Venkatachalam said the strike was against the unwarranted banking reform measures.
 
The nine constituent units of UFBU are: AIBEA, AIBOC, NCBE, AIBOA, BEFI, INBEF, INBOC, NOBW and NOBO.
 
According to Venkatachalam, unmindful of the adverse implications, the government was pursuing the reform measures in the banking sector like inadequate infusion of capital in public sector banks which will result in reduction of government's equity capital and create compulsion for higher extent of private capital leading to privatisation of banks.
 
He said the unions also opposed the decision to privatise IDBI Bank by reducing the government capital to less than 49 per cent, proposals of consolidation for public sector banks but expansion for private sector banks, giving licences to corporate houses to start banks, ineffective steps to recover the bulging bad loans in the banks, and rather showering concessions to the defaulters and others.
 
"We demand that willful and deliberate defaulters should be declared as criminal offenders and punished," he said.
 
Venkatachalam said the total bank loans wilfully defaulted by borrowers was Rs 58,792 crore.
 
He said the total quantum of bad loans of the government owned banks stood at Rs 539,995 crore as on March 31, 2016.
 
"But the government and the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) are not taking tough measures to recover the bad loans. Even the (defaulters') names are not being published," he said.
