Home-grown Reliance Jio has positioned itself as the world’s second strongest telecom brand. Last year, it was fifth in the pecking order. So what explains this rise? And how does Jio’s brand stack up against Airtel’s amid the 5G rollout?
As Jio and Airtel have set the ball rolling on 5G, the national cyber security coordinator has asked firms to increase their investment in cybersecurity. Rising Internet penetration will indeed have its own set of challenges.

A recent NASSCOM report also pointed out that despite having the largest IT talent pool in the world, India lacks skilled cyber security professionals. Moving on, the weatherman has forecast a hotter-than-usual period between March-May across most parts of the country this year. At the bourses, summer-related stocks have begun to gather steam. So, should you jump on the bandwagon?
