Isohyet of 100 cm marks the upper limit of groundnut cultivation. It is highly susceptible to frost, prolonged drought, continuous rain and stagnant water. Dry winter is needed at the time of ripening. It can be grown both as a kharif and as a rabi crop but 91 per cent of the total area under groundnut is devoted to kharif crop. Well drained light sandy loams, loams, red, yellow and black cotton soils are well suited for its cultivation.

This would also help the banks and other financial institutions to achieve higher recovery from financial defaults committed by such fugitive economic offenders, improving the re financial health of such institutions. The Ordinance has a provision for a 'Special Court' under the Prevention of Money- laundering Act, 2002 to declare a person as a Fugitive Economic Offender. A Fugiive Economic Offender is a person against whom an arrest warrant has been issue in respect of a scheduled offence and who has left India so as to avoid criminal prosecution, or being abroad, refuses to return to India to face criminal prosecution A scheduled offence refers to a list of economic offences contained in the Schedule to U this Ordinance. k h ent .Apart from giving the government the power to attach or confiscate the assets of a fugitive economic offender, the Ordinance also removes the offenders' right to defend a civil claim in the country.

With the western sweep of the monsoon stalled over the Konkan coast, kharif crop sowing has also slowed. About 12 lakh fewer hectares have been planted than at the same time last year. . The biggest lags are seen in rain-fed crops such as pulses and oilseeds. At this time last year, 9.93 lakh hectares of oilseeds, mostly soyabean had been planted. This year, re only half that area has been planted, at just over 5 lakh hectares he. The monsoon has not started yet in many of the key areas. This is a rainfed crop, so farmers are delaying planting till the onset of the monsoon. The mission was launched in 2014 in an effort to reduce India's dependence on edible oil imports by increasing domestic production to meet rising domestic demands. However, oilseed prices crashed to a five-year low last year, even as production increased. Lower prices were unlikely to impact the final acreage of oilseed crops. e ar k h ent Too earlv to sa It was too early to predict sowing trends. "The monsoon has slowed down, so farmers are waiting,". "Even if prices have fallen, they will have to sow. They are not going to leave their fields empty. The overall acreage ofsowing so far stands at 115.9 lakh hectares, in comparison to 128.35 lakh hectares at the same time last year. Apart from oilseeds and pulses, sowing for paddy, coarse cereals and cotton is also lagging behind slightly . tis

The telecom and media regulator defined control of ownership at 20 per cent shareholding, or over 50 per cent voting rights or half the members in a media company's board, or a say in its re he management. According to Trai, control could rest with an individual, group of individuals, companies, firms, trusts, societies and undertakings, Trai suggested if a media firm was dominant in a market in both print and television, its owner should be made to bring down its equity holding to 20 per cent over time. Dominant market share is 32 per cent in both print and television based on a complicated formula, the Herfindahl Hirschman Index. A market must be defined linguistically and across states where a particular language is spoken by the majority. English and Hindi will be considered national languages. A combination of reach and volume of consumption should be used for computing market shares in television. For print, only reach would be sufficient.
