The List of Most Hard Working Cities in the World is Out. Mumbai’s Rank will Leave you Amazed

If you have ever been to Mumbai or lived in the city, you must have noticed the hustle and bustle in the city whenever and wherever you go, irrespective of day or night. It is the city that never sleeps and people are always busy with what they are doing, whether working or doing chores or taking their morning walks.

Well, if you ever wondered if the city had the most hardworking and ambitious people in the world, the wait is over.

According to regulatory agency UBS, there was a study which was conducted by the Swiss Investment Bank which proved that Mumbaikars are the most hardworking people as they work for longest hours in the world.

The study has deducted that an average employed Mumbaikar works for around 3315 hours a years, this is the most hours worked by any city in the world, followed by Hanoi, Mexico City, New Delhi, Bagota and Dubai.

As part of its Price and Earnings 2018 report, UBS did a study of 77 cities around the world which included parameters such as average annual working hours.

The study also revealed that employees in the Helsinki, Moscow, Copenhagen, Paris, Rome and Lagos work the least amount of hours.

The study also showed that Mumbaikars do not have the buying capacity which an average employee around the world should. It was seen that employees in New York can buy a Apple iPhone X by working 54 hours, while an employee in Mumbai would need to work 917 hours on an average to buy the smartphone. This is also seen including the rental expense, the cost of living in Mumbai is 46% less than that in New York.

Ben Sowter, QS Research Director, said this about the performance of Indian universities,

“The positive performance recorded by India’s most prominent institutions is symptomatic of a successful year for the country’s higher education system. 24 universities feature from India. 7 improve their rank, 9 remain stable, 5 are newly-ranked – and only three see their position drop.”

He further added,

“Indian improvements can be primarily attributed to improvements in QS’s reputational indicators, which account for the insights of 83,000 academics and 42,000 employers. Seventeen of India’s 24 ranked universities improve their rank for Academic Reputation, while 13 improve their rank for Employer Reputation.”

R Subrahmanyam, secretary, higher education, HRD ministry, expressed his opinion on the rankings,

“This is an affirmation of faith in the premier Indian higher educational institutions and an endorsement of the effectiveness of the measures being taken by Indian Government to improve ranking of Indian institutions.”

As far as the Government of India is concerned, the HRD ministry is taking positive steps towards providing for the institutions by giving more grants, scholarships and funds to help improve their rankings in the world and also creating the Institutes of Eminence scheme so that these universities do not have to deal much with the regulatory framework.

BCCI Raised Salary of Indian Umpires. It’s much More than Pakistani Umpires

Cricket is a sport which is much loved and followed by spectators and fans around the world. So much so it is one of the few sports which have matches being played all around the year and is broadcasted across the world. But for the matches to be a success the players need to bring their A-game, and so do the umpires, coaches and support staff whose role is invaluable.

In fact, the role of an umpire during the game is most influential and he has to be alert all through the game. And even the job is complicated; he can’t be bias towards his favorite team.

However, Indian umpires have shown a good performance throughout the years and are known for their impartiality. Now that they contribute so much to the game, don’t they deserve the best pay?

BCCI has taken this into consideration and hiked the salary of the umpires. The salaries of the top 20 umpires who have to look after the senior men’s tournaments have been hiked.

Getting back to the point, how much do Indian And Pakistani umpires get for their contribution?

The best part is that they have got 100 percent hike. Earlier the salary was 20,000 but now, it has been raised to 40,000 per day. It is more than that of domestic ones who earn 35,000 every day.

T20 umpires would get salary of Rs 20,000 per day. On the other hand, those looking after women cricket and junior cricket will get Rs 30,000 per day.

However, as compared to India, Pakistani umpires are getting very less. It was reported that their salary is just Rs 6,000 per day.

Even though PCB did hike the salary of 11 performing umpires that does not include everybody.

Indians should be proud that BCCI is taking such steps to give deserving pay to the umpires.

Here’s what he said:

As soon as Airtel and Jio saw this they started fighting over the customer. Firstly, Jio asked the customer to share his details..

However, this did not go well with Airtel, and they asked the customer to change his mind.

The customer was not ready to change his mind, and wanted a better network.

Finally, he chose Jio’s services and shared all his details with them. Jio acknowledged the same. It’s glad to see how Jio is serving customers in such an efficient manner.

What Happens to Coin Collected by Security at Wankhede Stadium? We finally have the Answer

Have you and your friends been regularly going to the Wankhede to watch Cricket matches. If you have been then you would have noticed that the security does not allow certain things inside the stadium. Most of them include bottles, packets of food and also, change money. Yes you heard it right. Security does not allow change inside the stadium. And they have a valid reason for it.

Due to the craze for the game, hooligans and sometimes even normal fans, act like caged monkeys when their team loses. There have been incidents of fans throwing bottles and other ‘missiles’ onto the field.

So the security does not allow the fans to bring in change into the field. So what happens to the money collected from fans during such matches?

We have the answer for it, once the money gets collected after a game or two, the money is sent as an offering to the Hanuman Mandir in Marine Lines, and most of the times the change box is not even opened and sent directly to the mandir where it is opened. And the amount is a big amount sometimes ranging to Rs 2,000 to Rs 4,000.
