This week our special newsletter ‘BE on Wednesdays’ captures the action in the business of EVs. Our story on EVs asks the question: do electric scooters in India need rebranding?

A string of incidents featuring e-scooters going up in flames has marred the segment’s image. At least five different EV manufacturers have had to recall faulty scooters recently amid growing pressure from the government. What do industry experts and makers of EVs believe amid the incidents of e-scooters catching fire?

The easy-to-navigate newsletter carries stories that have been specially curated by the combined efforts of our print and digital team of journalists.

Another story in today's edition revolves around how multiple companies, even the federations of some participating nations, are taking steps to distance themselves from FIFA-host Qatar over its treatment of migrant workers and the gay community.

A story on the eve of World No Tobacco Day, talks about health experts and celebrities, urging the government to put an immediate ban on advertisement of tobacco products.

The story on e-commerce platforms throws light upon the latest developments around violation of competition law by these platforms. CCI is reviewing documents that suggest financial dealings between leading e-commerce companies and their preferred sellers.

Another development is from the streaming world, where Netflix is longer available in Russia. The OTT giant is among a host of foreign companies that have announced the suspension of operations or outright withdrawal.
