Huge quantity of 'Chinese kite strings' confiscated in Punjab 17.1.2018 General News
A huge quantity of 'Chinese kite strings', made from synthetic materials like nylon or plastic, was confiscated today during a raid by the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), officials said. The raid targeted shops selling kites in Patiala, Malout, Bathinda and Rajpura, a PPCB official said. The Punjab government had imposed a complete ban on manufacturing, sale, production, supply and use of kite strings made of nylon, plastic or other synthetic materials. Challans were issued to the erring shopkeepers, an official release said here. It was observed that synthetic thread used for flying kites caused fatal injuries to "humans, birds and cattle", the official said. Only a cotton thread, free from sharp metallic or glass components, adhesive and thread strengthening material, was permitted for flying kites.

Difficult to say Bt cotton crop yield loss due to pink 16.1.2018 General News
Seed industry body FSII today said it was "unfortunate" that the Maharashtra government has held seed firms responsible without any proper assessment for the losses suffered due to pink bollworm attack on Bt cotton crop this kharif season. It is "unfair" and "breach of principles of natural justice" to hold seed companies responsible based on "media reports", alleged the Federation of Seed Industry of India (FSII) in a statement. The FSII, in a letter to both the Centre and the Maharashtra government, expressed concerns over the problem faced by farmers but said the industry might close if the state asks seed firms to compensate the losses. "It is very difficult to establish that yield loss, if any, is due to attack of pink bollworm. It is an established scientific fact that crop yields depend on multiple factors... You are also aware of rampant cultivation of illegal GM cotton in Maharashtra this year. All these factors might have contributed to any possible yield ...

Disincentivise cigarette smuggling through tax policy:FAIFA 16.1.2018 General News
Ahead of the budget, farmers body FAIFA today asked the government to have a taxation policy that curbs cigarette smuggling, saying Indian tobacco growers are suffering due to it. The Federation of All India Farmer Associations (FAIFA), claiming to represent farmers of commercial crops across Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Gujarat among others, said steep increase in tobacco taxation in the recent past led to growth of smuggling of cigarettes in the country. "We appeal to the government to have a taxation policy, that disincentivises cigarette smuggling," FAIFA General Secretary Murali Babu said in a statement. FAIFA said seizure of smuggled cigarettes has doubled in the last two years indicating the increase in smuggling.
