Bajaj Auto bullish on XCD bike to extend the facility in Pantnagar end of this year. See the news below. 

Murali Gopalan | Friday, 05 October , 2007, 08:41 
Mumbai: Bajaj Auto’s recently launched 125cc XCD motorcycle has managed to attract a considerable number of new customers who would have otherwise bought competing models.

The bike could also eat into its basic version of the 135cc Discover (about 15 per cent), which is slightly dearer at Rs 46,000. Production of the 110cc version has practically stopped.

“Our initial feedback from the market shows that nearly 55 per cent of buyers for the XCD are those who would have typically opted for competitors’ bikes,” S Sridhar, CEO of the company’s two-wheeler business, told DNA Money.

The XCD is part of the buoyant executive segment, which includes Hero Honda’s hugely successful Splendor and Passion. Together, they account for sales of over 1.5 lakh units each month.

Both are 100cc bikes and will now have to reckon with the more powerful XCD at nearly the same price of Rs 41,000 (ex-showroom).

A spokesperson for Hero Honda said it was not the company’s policy to comment on competition, while reiterating that it had a clear multi-focal strategy spanning across segments.

“We have grown faster than the industry every month since January this year. As a result, our market share in motorcycles has crossed 50 per cent and we have been steadily consolidating this leadership position,” he added.

Hero Honda reported sales of over 3 lakh bikes in September. This reflects the vice-like grip it has on the motorcycle market. It is this stranglehold in the 100cc segment that Bajaj is striving to break with the XCD.

The bike was launched a little over three weeks ago and reported sales of nearly 19,000 units in September. The company has now embarked upon the challenging task of selling 50,000 bikes this month. This is the festive season where sales are generally buoyant with a host of freebies, though Sridhar reiterated that Bajaj was going to steer clear of the discounts game.

According to him, the bigger task on hand was to sustain the levels of 50,000 units for the coming months.

“It is possibly for the first time that such high targets have been set for a new bike in the executive segment. We are, however, confident of meeting this objective,” he said.

Towards the end of this calendar, Bajaj plans to shift a part of the production line for the XCD from Waluj in Aurangabad to its new facility at Pantnagar, Uttarakhand.

The idea is to benefit from the generous fiscal sops, which have been offered to companies setting up new units in this region. This plant is already home to the 100cc Platina, which could eventually lose its relevance as the XCD gains ground.

If the XCD does succeed in its objective of attracting more customers from competition (essentially the Splendor and Passion), there could be some interesting times ahead in the executive segment.

Sridhar said that the initial commercial for the XCD featuring its engine had worked wonders. The animation campaign featuring the bike kicked off a fortnight ago and is also doing well, he added.

“Customers are kicked by the fact that a bike with an electric start and delivering over 100 kmpl costs only Rs 41,000. We are confident that monthly demand for the XCD will increase to 75,000 units in the coming months and only need to ensure that production and delivery schedules cope with this demand,” he said.

Sridhar said that the most significant aspect of the XCD was that even at a price point of Rs 41,000, it was slated to make the kind of profits seen with the Pulsar and Discover.

“It is a tribute to the levels of cost-efficiencies we have achieved in the plant,” he added

Anubhav / अनुभव उपाध्याय:
Welcome step of Govt. but it should also be seen that the money is utilized properly to revive Sugar Mills.

तोहफा: 450 प्रधानाध्यापक बनेंगे 'प्रधानाचार्य'

देहरादून। शिक्षा महकमा राज्य में शिक्षकों को बड़ा तोहफा देने की तैयारी में है। रिक्त चल रहे इंटर कालेजों के साढ़े चार सौ प्रधानाचार्य और 95 ब्लाक शिक्षा अधिकारी तथा सहायक ब्लाक शिक्षा अधिकारियों के सभी रिक्त पदों को एक ही झटके में भरने की तैयारी हो रही है। खास बात यह है कि इन सभी पदों को प्रोन्नति के जरिए ही भरा जाना है।
   पिछले सालों में राज्य में बेतहाशा स्कूलों का उच्चीकरण तो किया गया पर जरूरत के मुताबिक पद सृजित नहीं किए गए। यही कारण है कि इस समय राज्य में 450 इंटर कालेजों में प्रधानाचार्यो के पद रिक्त हैं। शिक्षा महकमा इन सभी रिक्त पदों को हाई स्कूल के प्रधानाध्यापकों को प्रोन्नति देकर भरने जा रहा है। इस बारे में शासन स्तर पर कवायद पूरी कर ली गई है। इसके अतिरिक्त राज्य के 95 विकास खंडों में ब्लाक शिक्षा अधिकारी के पद रिक्त चल रहे हैं। इन सभी पदों पर नियुक्ति देने की तैयारी भी शिक्षा महकमा कर रहा है। ब्लाक शिक्षा अधिकारी के साथ-साथ ब्लाकों में रिक्त सभी एडीओ के पदों को भी भरने की तैयारी की जा रही है। इस संबंध में शिक्षा मंत्री मदन कौशिक से बात की गई। उन्होंने स्वीकार किया कि शिक्षा विभाग इसकी तैयारी में जोर शोर से जुटा हुआ है। इतने सारे पदों को एक झटके में कैसे भरा जाएगा? इस सवाल के जवाब में श्री कौशिक ने कहा कि इसकी पूरी तैयारी कर ली गई है। इन्हें भरने में कोई दिक्कत नहीं होगी। सर्व शिक्षा अभियान के अंतर्गत वर्ष 07-08 में नवीन प्राथमिक/उच्च प्राथमिक विद्यालयों में अध्यापक तथा संकुल संसाधन केंद्रों में समन्वयकों के 1453 पद सृजित किए गए हैं। वित्त विभाग से इसकी सैद्धांतिक सहमति मिल गई है। राज्य के सभी तेरह जिलों के लिए ये पद सृजित किए गए हैं। जिलेवार प्राथमिक स्तर पर नवीन प्राथमिक विद्यालयों में शिक्षक, सहायक अध्यापक और शिक्षा मित्र, उच्च प्राथमिक स्तर पर नवीन उच्च प्राथमिक विद्यालयों में शिक्षक, सहायक अध्यापक और सीआरसी समन्वयकों के नगर क्षेत्र तथा ग्रामीण क्षेत्र के लिए पदों का सृजन किया गया है। इन पदों के सृजन में टिहरी जिला सबसे आगे, उसके बाद ऊधमसिंहनगर है। सबसे कम पद अल्मोड़ा तथा चंपावत जिलों में सृजित किए गए हैं। फिलहाल इन पदों पर आने वाला व्यय भार सर्व शिक्षा अभियान परियोजना कार्यालय वहन करेगा। परियोजना की समाप्ति पर ये पद स्वत: राज्य सरकार में निहित हो जाएंगे।
