Iron Lady of India J Jayalalithaa Passes Away

Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and AIADMK supremo J.Jayalalithaa breathed her last on Monday night at 11:30 P.M. Party loyalist and senior leader O.Panneerselavam is sworn in as the interim chief minister following her demise. The strong-willed lady was admitted to Apollo hospital in Chennai after she complained of fever and restlessness in September 2016.

She suffered a cardiac arrest on Sunday which further worsened her condition. A team of doctors was flown in from AIIMS, New Delhi to attend to her deteriorating health. She took her last breath on Monday night after repeated attempts at reviving her condition failed. 


Jayalalithaa has been the most loved chief minister of the state and is lovingly called Amma by her supporters for her generosity and strong willpower. She was a very successful heroine of south Indian films and has starred in almost 60 films opposite the south Indian superstar M.G.R, who was a mentor and guide to her. When M.G.R started his own political party by the name of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam(AIADMK), he appointed Jaya as the propaganda secretary of the party.

Jaya has suffered strong opposition from M.G.R's family and other political leaders many times because of her closeness to M.G.R. After the death of M.G.R in 1987, Jaya emerged as the leader of the party after winning by a landslide majority. Jayalalithaa has been the only chief minister in the last 30 years to be re-elected twice for the term.

The sad demise of the most loved leader of Tamil Nadu has resulted in a complete shutdown of the city as supporters throng to bid farewell to their beloved Amma. The mortal remains of Jaya were kept for public homage at Rajaji Hall in Chennai. The last rights shall be performed at 4:30 P.M today next to M.G.R Memorial. Many politicians and heads of States along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi have paid their tributes to the political leader.Thousands line Chennai streets as Jayalalithaa’s final journey begins. RIP Jayalalithaa.

YuppTV Partners with SLA Digital to bring Direct Operator Billing to their Customers

YuppTV, one of the world’s largest Internet TV Platforms for South Asian content has partnered with SLA Digital to enable Direct Operator Billing for its consumers to pay for digital content on their phones by charging it directly to their phone bills or deducting it from their available prepaid phone credit. This feature will not only make the subscription process easier for end consumers, it will also enable YuppTV to diversify into developing countries and target a much wider customer base.

Ashley O’Kane, Corporate Communications Manager at SLA Digital commented on the partnership, “Partnering with YuppTV, one of the largest providers of South-Asian content, adds to our lucrative network of partnerships that SLA Digital is delivering to global Mobile Operators via Digital Services like Direct Operator Billing.”

YuppTV has a global reach, offering LIVE Entertainment & News, TV shows, short videos and movies covering a wide range of languages to South Asian expat communities. Demand for this content is huge even in the emerging markets with an increase in sales of smart devices but where credit card penetration still remains very low.  This means that consumers are less likely to have credit cards to pay for these services online. Direct Operator billing becomes an easy way for them to subscribe and pay for this service.

Mr. Uday Reddy, CEO & Founder commented, “YuppTV has been built around making the best use of technology growth and advancement. Partnering with SLA Digital to allow Mobile Operator subscribers to pay for our service using a simple and secure solution like Direct Operator Billing builds on those principles. Following this strategic alliance, we are dedicated to providing the most invigorating content to the South Asian expat community.”
SLA Digital has initially connected YuppTV to Zain Bahrain for Direct Operator Billing and has plans to roll out to additional Mobile Operators in the near future.
