The government has drawn up fresh guidelines to make the process easier and to cut down the time it takes to adopt. These guidelines have been incorporated in the draft Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Bill, 2014, which came into effect in January 2016. spe an hink h fferent two bo .Suggested guidelines include linking orphaned and abandoned children in institutions a pu across the country to CARA, short for the Central Adoption Resource Agency, the nodal agency for adoption, as well as cutting the time it takes social workers-currentlyupo two months-to assess prospective parents. rk and The idea is to cut the waiting period for an adoption to a few months from the year or even more than it takes now. achn that

The more expectations you have, the more hurdles you are creating for yourself, re he referring to the preferences most prospective Indian parents have. These can range from fair complexion to gender, but most centre around age and physical health. "Families want a choice of babies, sometimes the attitude can lead to major conflict between (prospective) parents and agencies. Reason 3: Rise of Surrogacy: Falling adoption levels have also been put down to the rise of surrogacy, which has also given Indian couples an alternative. Artificial reproductive technology is giving stiff competition to the cause of adoption.

PM went on to highlight programmes like the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana that provides LPG connectionsto rural women, and Saubhagya Scheme aimed at providing last-mile connectivity for rural electrification, in a sign that the Budget could increase allocations to such programmes. 0 leg .

To overcome the shortfalls of DDU-GJY: Despite the government's aggressive village electrification programme, the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana launched in July 2015, under which 78% of 18,000 villages have been electrified, it was real ised that the problem of electricity access' wasn't resolved. A village is declared to be electrified if 10% of the households are given electricity along with publicplaces such as schools, panchayat office, health centres, dispensaries and community centres. With a large number of household still remaining unelectrified, the Saubhagya scheme aims at ensuring the coverage of households as opposed to only villages. Importance: It was seen that the electricity distribution companies don't want to supply to the villages even if the electrification has taken place. bat th y hav phc hee . slay or us hink h cause l erent a pu By providing electricity access to all households with prepaid and smart meters, rk and It stay demand will be created which in turn will force the discoms to supply to these villages.

The target of doubling farmers' income in five years appears almost unachievable unless urgent steps are taken to redirect the focus and provide the essential institutional support in order to make agriculture more sustainable and promote crop diversification. he On the one hand, growth in productivity and real farm incomes have materially slowed down; on the other, the very sustainability of the rice-wheat cropping system is under threat due to over exploitation of natural resources. . No resources Pointing out that the sharing pattern ofprogrammes such as the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana, the National Food Security Mission and the Agriculture Technology Management Agency scheme had been repeatedly amended, Mr. Singh said that now States had been asked to contribute 40% of the outlay as their share, even though they lack financial resources, Punjab being no exception. ur ay Entry 14: State List-> Agriculture, including agricultural education and research; protection against pests and prevention of plant diseases.

Scorpene is a conventional powered submarine weighing 1,500 tonnes and can go up to depths of 300m. It is built by DCNS of France. What has it to do with India? y hav phe In October 2005, India had signed a USD 3.75 bn deal for six of submarines to be built he by Mazgaon Dock Limited (MDL) in Mumbai with transfer of technology. Additional reve slay deals were signed with Thales and MBDA for systems and weapons. Why are submarines so important? A submarine is the quietest military platform and extremely tough to detect. Their main cover is their ability to move stealthily under water and keep an eye on enemy movement of vessels Submarines are the most potent military platforms currently available even ahead ofe aircraft carriers which need a large entourage to protect it. The fact that nations which possess nuclear weapons base their second strike capability (ability to strike back after being hit first by nuclear strike) on nuclear powered ballistic missile submarines (SSBN) underscores their importance. . or us erent a pu rk and t sta es

to Tax rate attraction: Citing the difference in CIT between the U.S. and India (where the rate is about 30%) as well as the exchange rate risk, analysts say that there were concerns being expressed whether the CIT cut in the U.S. would possibly lead to a slowdown in investment into India by U.S.-based firms Pointing out that India's budget last year had an announcement on reduction of CIT to 25% in case ofsmall companies with annual turnover up to 50 crore, Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) said the Centre should similarly reduce CIT to 25% for large companies. The reduction in CIT in the U.S. has forced Indian subsidiaries of American firms to look at the option of closing their India operations and moving to U.S. to avail the tax advantage.
