TRAI gives green signal, soon flyers to access mobile and internet services on-board aircraft 19.1.2018 DNA: Popular News
Flyers in India would soon be able to access mobile and internet services on board aircraft as telecom regulator on Friday recommended allowing these services as part of in-flight connectivity in the Indian airspace. However, the operation of mobile communication on aircraft (MCA) services should be permitted with minimum height restriction of 3,000 metres in Indian airspace, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said in its recommendations on ‘In-Flight Connectivity’.

Govt withdraws Haj subsidy; Follow SC order in full, says Congress 16.1.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
There will be no subsidy for Haj from this year and the funds saved will be used for providing education to minorities, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today, while projecting the move as an effort by the government to "empower minorities" without appeasement. The minister also said a record number of 1.75 lakh Muslims will undertake the pilgrimage this year from India despite the subsidy withdrawal. "There will be no subsidy on Haj now," he told reporters, adding that the government had spent over Rs 250 crore last year on subsidising the annual pilgrimage of Muslims to Saudi Arabia. The decision is in line with a 2012 Supreme Court order, asking the government to do away with the subsidy, a long standing demand of the BJP. The BJP had cited the subsidy as an example of "Muslim appeasement" by parties such as the Congress. Following the order, the subsidy was being gradually reduced every year. "It is part of the Modi government's efforts to empower minorities with dignity and without ...
