Govt.wants to return 'excess' land in Ayodhya . Centre conveyed to the Supreme Court its intention to return the "superfluous" land acquired around the disputed 0.313-acre Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid area to its rightful owners. total of 67.703 acres of land, including the 0.313 acre of disputed area, was acquired by the Centre in 1993 "to maintain communal harmony and the spirit of common brotherhood amongst the people of India". The Faruqui verdict had left it completely to the government's discretion to determine the "exact extent of land" which the party winning the Ayodhya dispute would need to access and enjoy the disputed area. The calculation was a "matter of policy" with no scope for judicial scrutiny, the government said. . The government justified that the continuous vesting of the superfluous land with it defeats the "very temporary nature" of the acquisition under the Acquisition of Certain Area in Ayodhya Act of 1993.
. The acquisition took place in the year 1993. Twenty-five years have passed by. government said now the only roadblock to handing over the superfluous land to the rightful owners was a decision of the Supreme Court on March 31, 2003 in the case of Mohd Aslam at Bhure. . "exact extent of land" necessary for the future winner of the Ayodhya title dispute to gain proper access to the 0.313 acre where the Babri Masjid structure once stood before its demolition on December 6, 1992.

Rajasthan Zika strain is endemic to Asia, says new study . new study published in the journal Infection, Genetics and Evolution Zika virus that infected 159 people in an outbreak in Rajasthan last year, could have been circulating in India for several years and is endemic to Asia, . authors from Pune's National Institute of Virology (NIV), an institute under the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), is the first to sequence full Zika virus genomes from India. During the latter half of 2018, India recorded its first major Zika outbreaks in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. . ICMR said the Rajasthan virus had been sequenced and was closely related to a virus that had caused large epidemics and birth defects in Latin America in 2015.
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare issued a press release, citing the NIV's research, to say that "known mutations" for foetal microcephaly were not present in the Rajasthan strain. publication contradicts the the ICMR's previous statements in two ways. First, it indicates that the Rajasthan Zika strain is not closely related to the Brazilian one. virus has been in Asia for "at least 50 years". . Zika-related birth defects such as microcephaly were occurring even before the virus was first detected in India.
endemicity means that large outbreaks, such as the Brazilian one may not occur in India, serosurveys are needed to confirm this . In a serosurvey, a sample of the population is tested for Zika antibodies.
Decision put off on Institutes of Eminence scheme is aimed at developing world-class institutions which would put India on the global education map.

But the government scheme said we had to select ten in each category
expert committee headed by former Chief Election Commissioner N. Gopalaswami had initially recommended 11 institutions for the tag in July 2018. Of those, the Centre had actually bestowed the tag on six institutions, three public IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay and lISc Bangalore and three private -BITS Pilani, Manipal University, and the yet-to-open Jio University. In December, the committee recommended 19 more names, taking the total list to 30. University Grants Commission has deferred a decision on which institutions should be granted the prestigious Institutes of Eminence tag as an expert committee has recommended more names than the government scheme allowed for. . no mention or discussion of any report or input from the Intelligence Bureau regarding the proposed institutions
