India

L'India (hindi: भारत Bhārat), ufficialmente Repubblica dell'India (Hindi: भारत गणराज्य Bhārat Gaṇarājya), è uno Stato dell'Asia meridionale, con capitale Nuova Delhi.
È il settimo paese per estensione geografica al mondo (3.287.263 km²) e il secondo più popolato, con 1.175 000 000 abitanti (censimento 2012). È bagnato dall'oceano Indiano a sud, dal mar Arabico a ovest e dal golfo del Bengala a est. Possiede una linea costiera che si snoda per 7.517 km. Confina con il Pakistan a ovest, Cina, Nepal e Bhutan a nord-est, e Bangladesh e Birmania ad est. I suoi vicini prossimi, separati dell'oceano Indiano, sono lo Sri Lanka a sud-est e le Maldive a sud-ovest.
Sede della civiltà della valle dell'Indo e regione di rotte commerciali storiche e di vasti imperi, il subcontinente indiano è stato identificato con il suo commercio e la ricchezza culturale per gran parte della sua lunga storia. Quattro grandi religioni del mondo, l'Induismo, il Buddismo, il Giainismo e il Sikhismo, sono nate qui, mentre lo Zoroastrismo, l'Ebraismo, il Cristianesimo e l'Islam arrivarono entro il primo millennio d.C. dando forma nella regione a una grandissima diversità culturale. Gradualmente annessa alla Compagnia britannica delle Indie Orientali dai primi decenni del XVIII secolo e colonizzata dal Regno Unito dalla metà del XIX secolo, l'India è diventata un moderno Stato nazionale nel 1947, dopo una lotta per l'indipendenza che è stata caratterizzata da una diffusa resistenza non violenta guidata da Gandhi.

India Premium Motorcycle Market to Grow at Over 30% Through 2019, Says TechSci Research

Prior to 2011, the demand for premium motorcycles in India was entirely addressed through imports. Heavy import duties on these premium motorcycles used to significantly increase the selling price, thereby limiting the potential customer base. However, with the entry of US based premium motorcycle giant Harley Davidson in India in 2010 and the company establishing its domestic assembling plant in the country, the market scenario changed significantly. The huge price differential between locally assembled Harley Davidson motorcycles and other imported motorcycles, coupled with brand value attached with Harley Davidson motorcycles significantly increased the sales of high powered motorcycles among Indian consumers.

TechSci Research: India FM Radio Industry Forecast & Opportunities, 2019

The history of radios dates back to the year 1923 when the Radio Club of Bombay started broadcasting programs in India. AIR (All India Radio) launched its first FM service from Madras to offer a wide range of audio programs to listeners with improved content and broadcast quality. Till 1999, India's FM radio market was governed by AIR. However, with Phase-I auction policy in the same year; the market opened its realms for private FM radio companies. The policy met limited success with the launch of only 21 channels that were allotted under this policy. These channels are still operational across 12 cities in India. Later in 2005, the launch of Phase-II auction policy fuelled private FM radio channels in the country under which the government allocated licenses for 245 channels. However, with the upcoming Phase - III auctions the more new licenses are expected to be allocated which would further drive the market for FM Radio Stations in India.
