Design Pataki by Esha Gupta launches DP Cult, an exclusive platform on design, art and architecture

Published

on

By

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], March 5 (ANI/NewsVoir): Design Pataki’s pioneering endeavour is set to revolutionize the way architects and designers source from India.
One of India’s foremost digital magazines on design, art, architecture, and lifestyle, Design Pataki goes through a complete transformation and launches #DPCULT – a cutting-edge platform that provides exclusive access to virtual showrooms of the finest design Brands in India, editorial deep dives, and a podcast that deconstructs the design world with leading industry experts.
In a saturated ‘offline’ marketplace, #DPCULT show house highlights the finest products ‘online’ to help designers, architects, and buyers from across the globe make easier and more informed decisions.
The aim of #DPCULT show house is to streamline the conversation around design brands in a country brimming with potential. From companies focused solely on ethical goods to luxury brands, fresh and upcoming businesses to veterans in the design scene, its database is tailored to suit every kind of requirement, covering the whole gamut of design and decor. #DPCULT show house is personally curated by Esha Gupta, Founder of Design Pataki.
Being at the forefront of design trends in India has given us a keen insight into the industry. Very often, we’re approached by innovative brands looking to break into the design community. On the other hand, architects and designers, especially those overseas, constantly reach out to us for our newest finds and top recommendations.
“Over time we’ve grown increasingly aware of this vast disconnect in the Indian design landscape and decided it was time to do something about it. That’s how the idea for #DPCULT show house came about,” Esha Gupta.
This is the need of the hour, as the design world is ushered into a new era marked by social distancing. Tasks like visiting different cities in search of new materials and exploring furniture expos with clients are growing increasingly difficult. With rising apprehensions over physical sourcing, vetted lists from established sources will hold more importance than ever before!
#DPCULT show house is a pathway for design brands in a timely and interesting era to be an exclusive resource, available to Design Pataki’s growing roster of Indian and International interior designers and architects.
This evolved version of the digital magazine is set to be a unique platform for intelligent storytelling – a combination of Indian and international sensibilities which aim to establish a connection between the reader and the world of design.

Crisil revises outlook on Canara Bank’s debt instruments to stable

Published

on

By

Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], March 5 (ANI): Crisil has revised its outlook on long-term debt instruments of Canara Bank to stable from negative while reaffirming the ratings at AAA and AA.
The rating on certificate of deposits has been reaffirmed at A1-plus. Crisil had assigned a negative outlook to long-term debt instruments of the bank on August 29 last year following resolution of watch with developing implications.
The negative outlook was assigned to reflect potential stress the bank’s asset quality and consequently profitability could witness on account of challenging macro-environment. The revision in outlook to stable factors in better-than-expected performance during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The reported gross non-performing assets (NPAs) stood at 7.46 per cent as on December 31, 2020. Excluding the benefit of Supreme Court stay on NPA recognition, the pro-forma gross NPA was at 8.95 per cent (against reported gross NPA of 9.39 per cent as on March 31, 2020).
While it will increase from these levels, it is expected to remain lower than what Crisil had earlier envisaged.
Asset quality has also been supported by various schemes launched by the government (GoI) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI), like Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme, which has benefitted the micro, small and medium enterprises.
The one-time restructuring scheme is also expected to benefit reported NPA metrics. Canara Bank has restructured 1.6 per cent of its advances as on December 31, 2020 and can additionally restructure another 1.7 per cent over next couple of quarters.
Besides, the bank reported profit after tax of Rs 1,547 crore for the nine months ended December 31, 2020, with an annualised return on assets of 0.2 per cent.
Crisil said the bank will report a profit for the full year (fiscal 2021) as well against the substantial loss of Rs 5,839 crore for fiscal 2020. The ratings continue to factor in expectation of strong support the bank is likely to receive from its majority owner (the government) and healthy market position.
While economic activity has started picking up, any sudden surge in Covid-19 cases leading to partial lockdowns could negatively impact the collections. Hence, the bank’s asset quality and its consequent impact on earnings profile will continue to be closely monitored.
Crisil withdrew its rating on Rs 1,000 crore upper tier II bonds under Basel II norms since there is no outstanding amount. (ANI)
