Criticising Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra Government for its delay on Maratha reservation issue, Shiv Sena on Saturday has questioned the decision of formation of yet another Cabinet sub-committee on the issue.

Bank deposits on a decline in Gujarat 17.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Business activity in Gujarat, measured in terms of total advances given by banks and total deposits received by banks, continue to stagnate for the second quarter in succession, according to a recent banking report. Experts say that a combination of rising inflation and slowing economic growth has been reducing savings and the overall scarcity of liquidity in the market has been forcing people to borrow more. According to the report of State-Level Bankers’ Committee for the April-June quarter of the current fiscal, total bank deposits in Gujarat declined marginally to Rs6,23,198 crore, compared to Rs 6,23,787 crore in Jan-March quarter of 2017 and Rs 6,31,478 crore in October-December quarter of 2016. It is the growth in advances that gave a boost to the business of banks. Advances stood at Rs 4,77,480 crore, a rise of 3.79% over previous quarter’s Rs4,60,030 crore which in turn was a growth of 3.41% over the previous quarter. Total business mix that earlier used to be in the range of 2.5-3.0% stood ...

Housing min bats for FSI upgrade in megacities 17.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
To address the issue of land scarcity in the country, even as rapid urbanisation takes over, Hardeep Singh Puri, the housing and urban affairs minister, on Saturday directed a review of the Floor Space Index (FSI) and Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for all megacities. He also batted for a dense and vertical growth of cities, stating that it would benefit citizens as well as urban mass transit systems in development. He added that increasing urban land availability was imperative to meet the affordable housing demand. According to the Census, between 2001 and 2011, India's urban population has grown by 32 per cent as compared to only 18 per cent growth in the country's total population. Projections suggest that by 2031, this population will have multiplied by 600 million. To tackle this, government think-tank Niti Aayog in August drafted a three-year action agenda drafted and recommended that urban spaces be expanded manifold by relaxing the permitted FSI, which it stated, was extremely low at present, ranging ...
