Due to the timely defensive action, the Indian side was able to prevent these attempts to unilaterally alter the status quo,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said. Amid fresh tensions, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar held a meeting with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and the Army top brass. The meeting chaired by Singh went for about two hours. Jaishankar, Doval, Chief of Defence Staff Genral Bipin Rawat and Army Chief M M Naravane participated. The Director General Military Operations, the operations head of the Army too, attended , the meeting, according to an officer. “The meeting was held to analyse the current situation and discuss the future course of all military and diplomatic options,” he said. India has consolidated its position by occupying the heights on the southern bank of the Pangong Tso. “It was a preemptive move after we observed Chi- nese movement towards the area accompanied with the heavy machinery to create infrastructure,” sources said. The second brigade commander-level meeting in as many days on Tuesday was inconclusive with China accusing India of entering Chinese territory, an allegation the Indian side rejected. Meanwhile, Chinese Embassy spokesperson Ji Rong accused India of flagrant provocations on August 31. “India’s move has grossly violated China’s territo- Appropriate defensive measures taken: MEA In response to provocative military maneuvers by China in the late night of August 29 and 30, “the Indian side took appropriate defensive measures along the LAC in order to safeguard our interests and defend the territorial integrity,” MEA spokesperson Srivastava said rial sovereignty, seriously violated relevant agreements, protocols and important consensus reached between the two countries, and severely damaged peace and tranquillity along the China-India border areas.

All necessary measures are being taken for the same,” Special Chief Secretary (Health) KS Jawahar Reddy said on Tuesday. He pointed out that while Nellore, Chittoor and Prakasam districts witnessed an increase in deaths of Covid-19 patients, Anantapur, Guntur, Krishna, Visakhapatnam and Srikakulam districts witnessed a decline.

Here’s a look: Allahabad High Court drops all charges under the National Security Act against Dr Kafeel Khan Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday dropped all charges under the National Security Act (NSA) against Dr Kafeel Khan, who was detained for his speech during the anti-CAA protests on the Aligarh Muslim University campus in December last year. “A complete reading of the speech also nowhere threatens peace and tranquility of the city of Aligarh. The address gives a call for national integrity and unity among the citizens,” the court said while allowing a habeas corpus writ petition filed by his mother Nuzhat Perween 6.1 Q1(April-Jun) 4.2 -23.9 2020 THREE sets of data released on Tuesday offered a glimpse into the state of the country’s economy . GST collection for August fell both on a year-on-year basis as well as sequentially On an annual basis, the . August mop-up at `86,449 crore was 12% lower compared to `98,202 crore recorded in the same month last year. Experts, however, say the drop in indirect tax collection is due to reduced imports and that the latest revenue figure is actually impressive as it shows domestic economic activity is on the mend. GST collections have faltered since the beginning of the current fiscal as Covid-19-induced lockdown disrupted economic activity. The revenue collected in April was `32,172 crore, `62,151 crore in May, `90,917 crore in June and `87,422 crore in July . Meanwhile, India’s manufacturing sector activity reentered the growth territory in August. The IHS Markit India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index rose from 46 in July to 52 in August, signalling an improvement after four consecutive months of contraction. With economic activity picking up pace, energy use is also gradually going up across the country Accord. ing to power consumption data released on Tuesday , 110.57 billion units were consumed in August, almost FULL COVERAGE: P10 the similar level as last year. JAYA N T H P @ Vijayawada THE state government on Tuesday said it would introduce direct benefit transfer (DBT) in case of the subsidy being extended to agricultural power consumers in the form of free power. The decision has been taken after the Centre mandated implementation of DBT in lieu of free power, among other performance-linked reforms, to avail additional borrowing as part of reforms under Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan. According to an order issued by Energy Secretary Srikant Nagulapalli on Tuesday, the government will credit the entire amount of power consumed by agricultural connections in the beginning of the month and beneficiaries will pay the power disP4 tribution companies. IF EVERYONE WEARS A MASK, WE CAN ACHIEVE 90% EFFECT OF LOCKDOWN: DR D NAGESHWAR REDDY Can you be reinfected by Covid if you’ve recovered from it once already? How long after you notice symptoms can you afford to wait before you rush to a hospital? If the virus keeps mutating over time, will the upcoming Covid vaccine still be effective? Six months of on-again, off-again lockdowns later, the average Indian still has a whole load of basic questions about the virus. To address them, TNIE Editor G S Vasu spoke to renowned gastroenterologist and Padma Bhushan awardee Dr D Nageshwar Reddy. The Hyderabadbased Chairman of the Asian Institute of Gastroenterology sought to dial down the panic, spoke on how wearing masks can achieve 90% effect of lockdown, and why India’s numbers 1.5 billion are likely to be 5x higher than we think.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said the firms will have to pay 10% of the dues by March 31, 2021. Thereafter, they will have to pay an instalment by February 7 every successive year. The bench said non-payment of instalments will not just accrue interest but also invite contempt of court proceedings and added it had extended the timeframe of repayment due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
