Rains hit 40% of state's Alphonso mango crop, production takes a hit 21.3.2017
There is likely to be a shortage of the most preferred mango variety Alphonso this season. Kadregowda, managing director, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd (KSMDMCL), during a media interaction on Tuesday said the sudden rainfall in February and March has destroyed the Alphonso crop in parts of north Karnataka like Belagavi and in Bengaluru Rural, Kolar and Ramanagaram. This will not only effect the domestic market, but exports also. However, the Banganapalle and Mallika crops are picking up and this could substitute Alphonso exports.

Rs 50 lakh worth of demonetised currency was seized during a CCB raid on a jeweller's house on Link Road, Langford Town, central Bengaluru, on Friday night. Sleuths of the Central Crime Branch (CCB) raided the house of Anand Jain, who runs a jewellery store in Adugodi, after receiving a tip-off that two men were trying to legalise the banned notes. Rs 1 lakh was said to be the commission for legalising Rs 1 crore worth of scrapped notes. Besides Jain, they also arrested Vinaya Prasad, a real estate businessman from Ejipura.
