According to IMD officials, the conditions are likely to get favorable for the advancement of southwest monsoon from June 24 and might make progress in Maharashtra, Chattisgarh and Odisha.

Facing massive social media backlash for initially pandering to bigotry on Twitter, Airtel on Wednesday has come out with a detailed response where they have denied agreeing to a 'discriminatory request'.  In yet another case of bigotry, a Lucknow-based Hindu girl stoked a fresh controversy by refusing to seek help from a Muslim technician to fix a problem in her Airtel Dish TV Network.
