It was given a letter, signed by the chief secretary, in which the government agreed to address complaints and appeals under the Forest Act, 2006, in the next two months and relax some of the conditions for loan-waiver eligibility. The government also agreed to issue ration cards to farmers in tribal areas immediately to help them prove their land claims. Read more

IIP rises to 7.5% in Jan, retail inflation eases to 4-month low of 4.4%

Industrial activity expanded 7.5 per cent in January, up from 7.1 per cent in December. This is the third straight month that industrial output has expanded by more than 7 per cent, suggesting economic activity is gaining as the effects of demonetisation and the goods and services tax (GST) dissipate. Retail inflation, measured by the consumer price index (CPI), moderated to a four-month low of 4.4 per cent in February, aided by a fall in the price of pulses and moderation in vegetables, led by onion.

This could leave little room for the MPC to ease the policy rate of interest. Read more
