Beam Money launches mobile money service in Uttarakhand post offices

Delhi-based mobile payment startup Beam Money Pvt Ltd has launched its service in 29 major post offices across the state of Uttarakhand. Now customers in Uttarakhand can recharge mobile, data card and DTH connections; pay utility bills and make payments for rail, air & bus tickets, movie tickets and online shopping at a post office near them without using credit/debit cards or net banking, the company has said in a press release.
A couple of months ago, Beam Money launched its service in 100 post offices across Tamil Nadu to provide air ticketing facility to consumers.
Set up in 2009, the startup has developed its flagship product Beam Money, which is essentially a mobile wallet enabling users to transact via mobile for goods and services and also to transfer money. The company caters to both B2B and B2C space. In the B2B domain, it ties up with local merchants to offer payment services while in B2C, consumers directly register for services via its WAP site, app, the internet or even through SMS. It claims to have a user base of around 14 million and around 50,000 merchants on board.
In an earlier interview with Techcricle.in, Beam Money chairman and MD Anand Srivastava said that by next year, the firm would be targeting to double its user base by hitting the 25 million mark.
In February this year, Beam Money came up with a mobile companion pre-paid card in partnership with MasterCard. The prepaid card works with Beam’s account and integrates with a user’s mobile number. It enables consumers to transact at physical outlets, online and also at ATMs.

Tata Motors move to Uttarakhand is bad news for UP MSMEs

Uttar Pradesh's indecisiveness on its promise to provide incentives to firms that have made investments of more than Rs 100 crore in the state is going to cost it dear.

As many as 55 MSMEs that provide parts to Tata Motors' Lucknow plant will have to close down because of the company's decision to shift some of its production to its Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand, lured by the hill state's excise duty exemptions.

MSME vendors have approached BS Gangwar, UP's minister in-charge of MSME, urging him to get the promised incentives released and help safeguard the interests of a large number of MSMEs.

Speaking to FE, an MSME vendor said that pure economics is the only reason behind this decision of Tata Motors. "Had the UP government honoured its commitment as stated in the Industrial Investment Promotion Policy announced by the Mulayam Singh Yadav government in 2006, the company would not have thought of shifting its production to Pantnagar. It has become increasingly difficult for Tata Motors to compete in the market without the incentives that were promised to it and in order to remain competitive, it wants to avail of the excise duty exemption that Uttarakhand government is providing," he said, adding that more than Tata Motors, this decision will hit ancilliary units hard as they stand to lose around R400 crore and render around 2,000 people jobless.

"It would also incur the state exchequer a loss of R500 crore as revenue, apart from denting the image of the state government," said another vendor.

The 2006 policy promised benefits to as many as 12 firms that had applied at that time.

These include Tata Motors, Gallant Ispat, Sukhbir Agro, Vacmet Packaging, Bindal Agro, KR Pulp, Vam Organys, Grashim Ind, Bajaj Equitex, Rimjhim Ispat and Laksmi Cotsyn.

Of all these firms, Tata Motors plant in Lucknow was the biggest and had invested R550 crore in its expansion.

However, after the Mulayam Singh government was voted out, the Mayawati government cancelled the policy as it saw it as a veritable scam as “the subsidies were overlapping and the sales tax clause seemed
