Haryana Minister Anil Vij on Saturdy raked up controversy with remarks that Mahatma Gandhi's image did not help khadi and caused devaluation of the currency, sparking outrage with the BJP also condemning the statement. Not a stranger to controversies, Vij said it was good that Gandhi's image has been replaced with that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the calendar and diary of Khadi and Village Industries Commission. He described Modi is a "better brand" and went on to add that Gandhi's image would be removed gradually from the currency notes too. He later withdrew the statement, saying they were his personal views. Vij, a five-time MLA from Ambala Cantt, told reporters, "Gandhiji's name has no patent over khadi.

Second World War cipher technology - such those behind Nazi military coding machines - may help develop next-generation ultra-secure credit and debit cards, scientists say. New cards will include a device that generates new numbers for transactions, replacing existing three-digit CVV security number. Inventors David Taylor and George French have secured a patent for the technology that was inspired by the concept behind the design of Nazi military coding machines such as Enigma. Second World War encrypted communications worked on the basis of changing ciphers. In a similar way, users of the new card will tap their PIN into a keypad mounted on the card which will create a range of security ciphers. The codes will be generated at a timed interval by a tiny clock and appear next to the signature strip. The new technology also signals the end of PIN-entry card readers, 'The Telegraph' repor000ted.
