Why did Force India get docked all constructors points?

Prior to the Hungarian Grand Prix, Sahara Force India entered administration and was bought out by the consortium Racing Point UK, renaming themselves Racing Point Force India in the Belgian Grand Prix but with zero points in the constructors championship.

Besides the new ownership, the entire team was basically the same as it was at the start of the season. Same chassis, same drivers and the same crew.

Is a change of ownership midway through the season regarded as a separate team entry that results in a team not retaining all the points they’ve currently earned in the season?

Kyokushin in India?

I have been looking for some trusted Masters of Kyokushin in India, but so far I have found only a few dojo in India with different versions of Kyokushin. Recently I learned about splitting of Kyokushin organization into 3 parts led by Kancho Shokei Matsui ( IKO 1 ), Kancho Kenji Midori ( IKO 2).
Are there any trusted organizations of IKO 1 or IKO 2 in India ?

How can I remove myself from India’s visa blacklist?

I am a Bangladeshi citizen. Back in 2013, I went to India with a tourist visa and overstayed for four days. It was due to a gout attack in my feet but I don’t have my medical papers to prove that.

I applied again in 2015 for a visa, at Dhaka, and they refused my visa and blacklisted my passport, writing some numbers and date on it. Now I am not able to get an Indian visa.

How I can remove my passport from the blacklist and get a new Indian visa? Do I need a Indian immigration lawyer to do this?

Contract notes in India: Benefits for delivery trades?

Suppose I buy equity in an Indian online brokerage on delivery basis (not day trading), intending to hold the equity for extended periods of time. What is the benefit of asking and paying extra for a contract note? Do I run a huge risk if I don’t opt for contract notes?

EDIT:

  • A description of a contract note here.

Finding mathematics postdoc opportunities in India

I am Ph.D. advisor to X, a rising 5th-year Ph.D. student in pure mathematics at a mid-tier US research university. X and I are trying to prepare for his upcoming job search.

In my opinion X is promising, talented, and hard-working, and he has not quite realized his potential yet. If he were to go on the US postdoctoral job market this year, I would estimate his chances to be low. Staying for a sixth year is a theoretical possibility, but my department is faced with budget cuts and X would probably have to finance his own studies.

It occurs to me that he might apply for postdocs (and, eventually, tenure-track positions) in his native India. He would really like to pursue a research career, and would likely be willing to accept compromises such as a low salary (by US standards).

An internet search reveals particular institutes to which one can apply, as well as postdoctoral fellowships — but I was unable to find any general overview of the Indian job market geared towards applicants overseas.

Is there an approach to finding a mathematics job in India, better than googling and applying for individual opportunities? And is it any easier to find a job there than it is in the US (for an Indian citizen who has studied in the US)?
