  3. Page I:Aerosols 'shrinking' India's monsoon [ENVIRONMENT NEWS Syllabus Topic: Conservation, environmental pollution and degradation, environmental impact assessment . While greenhouse gases, or GHGs, are causing concern about the long-term fate of the Indian monsoon, researchers now think that [I] aerosols from vehicular exhaust, [2] half-burnt crop residue, [3] dust and chemical effluents may be weakening the life-giving rainy season even more than GHGs. It has been found that: a mix of GHGs, aerosols and changes in forest and agricultural cover was affecting the strength of the monsoon, which was known to be weakening over the last 50 years. The relative contribution of the individual factors, however, was not clear then. New modelling: The scientist and his team used an upgraded forecasting model that was used this year by the India Meteorological Department for forecasts. The model will help prepare India's first home-grown forecast of climate change from global warming, and be part of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports.

However, new flats will cost less, giving some breather to the developers of upcoming projects. . Under GST, the effective tax on under-construction projects has gone up to 12%. The actual GST rate is 18% on realty, but allows one-third of the tax to be deducted from the land value, from the total cost charged by the developer. The GST gives an option of getting full input set-off credit, which is not applicable to ready-to move-in flats and as a result, developers will have to bear the burden of higher tax or pass on to the end-consumers or increase the overall prices to match the new tax burdern www.unacademy.com/user/studiousjatin
