TVS Fiero 125 may return to the market with memory

TVS Suzuki Fiero, when you hear the name, a lot of nostalgia will come down from the attic of many memories. The Fiero bike won the hearts of countless bike lovers with its unique design and charisma of 150cc engine. TVS released a new version of the bike in 2001, after a long 15-year joint venture with Suzuki broke up. But it did not gain as much popularity as its original model. As a result, Fiero once left the market.

After so many years, it is now known that TVS is working hard to bring its Fiero model back to the market. In fact, TVS’s parent organization Sundaram-Clayton Limited has filed an application to trademark the name ‘Fiero 125’. Since then, speculation has been rife that this iconic bike from TVS may return in the 125cc segment.

If you look at the bikes in the 125cc segment now, you will not notice any TVS presence. The TVS Phoniex 125 model was also removed from the company’s product portfolio a few years ago. As a result, the Ntorq scooter is currently the only two-wheeler with a 125cc engine in TVS. So the launch of the Fiero 125 could be an attempt to fill the long-standing gap created by TVS’s lack of bikes in the 110cc (Star City, Raydon, Sport) and 150cc (Apache) ranges.

At the same time, the demand for commuter bikes is also strong in the market now. In the 125cc segment where two-wheelers like Hero Glamor 125, Honda CB Shine, Honda SP 125, Pulsar 125 dominate. There TVS will definitely want to bring new 125cc bikes to control the popularity of the mentioned bikes. People have an innate attraction to old things. So it can be said that TVS has decided to take the old name instead of the new one And this strategy is often noticed in the automotive industry.

Needless to say, everything is based on speculation. TVSO never hinted, they plan to launch new 125cc bikes. Therefore, it is not possible to say for sure when the Fiero 125 will be launched or the possible specifications. However, if we get any more information about the bike, we will definitely try to update it quickly.

TRAI has fined telecom companies for cheating people due to fake SMS

Currently a large number of people in India use digital payment services. Everything from bill payment to money transfer is now possible via smartphone. However, if you are a little careless with this service, you are more likely to be deceived. If you click on any fake link on the phone, you can be gone. However, it is not only the fault of the fraudsters, but also the telecom operators are allowed to send such SMS without verification. But this time the government has taken strict action on this issue. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has fined Indian telecom operators Rs 35 crore for allowing fake SMS. The government agency BSNL has to pay the highest fine. Their fine is Tk 30.1 crore. BSNL has to bear this penalty for running spam calls and fake SMS on its network.

Telecom Operator vs. Digital Payment Platform

Please be informed that these huge fines have been imposed on various telecom operators based on the complaints of various digital payment companies. A case is also pending in the Delhi High Court in this regard. Digital payment companies complain that telecom operators are not maintaining transparency in SMS handling. At the same time, they are giving fraudsters the opportunity to send such SMS, which is causing their users to fall victim to financial fraud. Paytm is the first of these complainants. Many Paytm subscribers complained about such SMS on social media platforms. These SMSes were asking to change the password of Paytm account or asking for OTP.

Following the allegations, the Delhi High Court directed TRAI to take urgent action in the matter. As a result of the order of the High Court, TRAI has imposed this huge fine.

The amount of the fine

India’s four major telecom operators Jio, Airtel, Vodafone Idea and BSNL have been fined. The highest fines have been imposed on BSNL. The report said BSNL was being fined for violating TRAI rules and not responding to show-cause notices. BSNL also did not submit a performance-monitoring report. They will have to pay a fine of Tk 30 crore for all these negligence.

Among other operators, Vodafone, Airtel and Quadrant have been fined Rs 1.72 crore, Rs 1.33 crore and Rs 1.41 crore respectively. GEO has also been fined, but the amount of the fine was not reported. According to TRAI, the fine was imposed for violating the Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulation.

BSNL has not commented on the huge fine. Hopefully they will respond to this in the next few weeks. As such, BSNL lags far behind other telecom operators in the current market. There is no doubt that this huge fine will make their overall condition worse.
