    On ‘Checking In’, take a look at Uniqlo, a fashion retail brand set up in Japan in 1984 which now has close to 2,200 stores worldwide. Uniqlo comes under the fast retailing group umbrella which is a leading global Japanese retail holding company that designs, manufactures and sells clothing under eight brands globally. Uniqlo entered the India market last month and with this move the brand currently operates in 24 markets. CNBC-TV18’s Megha Vishwanath checked in to one of Uniqlo's latest stores in Delhi-NCR and spoke to Uniqlo India’s CEO Tomohiko Sei to find out how the brand is planning to create a niche for themselves.
    On ‘Hot Seat’, Mugdha Variyar caught up with BlackBuck’s CEO Rajesh Yabaji to understand how the startup is preparing for the December 1 deadline for FASTags. There is currently about 50 percent penetration of FASTags in the commercial vehicle industry, and the implementation of the December 1 deadline would include challenges such as providing access to FASTags and infrastructural issues from scale, Yabaji said.
    On ‘Trendspotting’, take a look at Imangi Studios who achieved worldwide popularity when the company launched Temple Run way back in 2011.
