This report released at the 2nd IndianOil Gas Conclave in New Delhi, is based on a survey that gathers views from a diverse set of stakeholders on 18 questions around five key sub-topics. The survey results reveal that the Indian gas market is yet to attain maturity for the unbundling of the gas transmission and gas distribution segments as well as for the determination of tariffs based on entry-exit structures. Expeditious granting of permissions by authorities, government mandates and reforms in tariff regulations were cited by the survey respondents as the three most critical factors for CGD development. Reforms in anchor consumer sectors—namely the power and fertiliser sectors—are a must for accelerating growth in the gas sector. The survey respondents also indicated that a government mandate on the usage of natural gas in sectors is a must for switching over from alternative fuels.

Transglobeadvisors has been the knowledge partner for the NASSCOM Corporate Awards for Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) since 2010. Over the years, the award process has provided transglobeadvisors an opportunity to observe progress of various initiatives in the area of diversity across the IT-BPM industry and gain insights into the trends shaping the D&I agenda.

The year 2015 heralded the beginning of ‘BEPS-related actions’ – but it was really just the beginning! Going forward, if these actions take shape as planned, and coherently across most of the world, we are certainly at the threshold of a paradigm shift in the international taxation regime. The buzz is that India is likely to see changes in the coming Budget 2016 – legislative, as well as those relating to administrative aspects. However, before exploring the Indian state of play and to be able to contextualise the possible transformation that India may undergo, an understanding of the global picture becomes relevant. We have put together a booklet which outlines the key facets of the ‘BEPS world’ after finalisation of the BEPS deliverables. This is an attempt to present the ‘big picture’ on BEPS – globally and in India, and also provide insights on the Indian intent and deliberation on BEPS.
