Power of Apti - GK / Current Affairs

1. GST Returns filing cycle starts - acid-test and great opportunity : The government has further delayed the last day for filling for GST to 25th August, due to several reasons including floods in many states, this being the first time, and technical limitations and glitches. Finance Ministry said the GST Implementation Committee has taken a decision to extend the last date for payment of the GST for the month of July 2017 to 25th August, 2017. The State of Jammu & Kashmir has also requested for extension of time because of late passing of their GST Ordinance. The deadlines are : Aug 25 - GSTR-3B, Aug 28 - GSTR-3B + TRANS-1, Sept 5 - GSTR-1, Sept 10 - GSTR - 2, and 6 more. In all, 10 returns are to be filed before 15 Oct, though for some of them, data will be automatically fetched by the system. The larger picture is that GSTN now has all India data - a transformational change compared to earlier. Its impact will soon become visible on tax compliance, provided the GSTN works without collapsing/hitches, and big data magic works on the crores of invoices generated. Read more on GST, here.

2. NPAs will call for more capital provisioning for PSBs : The government and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) are in talks to chalk up public sector bank capital due to the higher provisioning burden on these lenders. These measures could include a combination of capital raising from the market, dilution of government holding, additional capital infusion by the government, mergers based on strategic decision and sale of non-core assets. Public sector banks require capital mainly because of a sharp rise in non performing assets (NPAs) in the last decade. The gross NPA figures at July beginning 2017 touched Rs.8.29 lakh crores, and net reached Rs.4.67 lakh crores (of which private was only Rs.47,571 crores).

3. Another big rail tragedy in UP : At least 23 people have died and over 72 injured after 14 coaches of the Utkal Express ran off the tracks in Uttar Pradesh on the 19th of August. The accident took place near Muzaffarnagar, about 100 kilometres from New Delhi. The train was headed from Puri to Haridwar in Uttarakhand. Coaches got piled up on each other while one carriage crashed into a house on the side of the tracks. A team of the anti-terror squad or ATS of the police was sent to the accident site to conduct a preliminary inquiry. Some staff have been suspended by the Indian Railways, with charges of carrying out "unscheduled repairs". Inefficiencies in systems keep claiming human lives regularly.

4. Only US on our target, says North Korea : Kim's regime has claimed that its nuclear weapons will pose a threat only to the US, and not the rest of the world. With reference to Guam, the North Korean regime stated that it has no quarrels with other countries and will only aim its nuclear missiles at America. The current tensions in the Korean peninsula started increasing following multiple missile tests by North Korea, with some failing while two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests of July raising concerns about the possibility of Pyongyang striking a US target, most likely in South Korea or Guam. The deployment of THAAD in South Korea has further raised the temperature in the peninsula. Read more on THAAD here  |  Read on Trump here

5. NPAs hit SBI hard : India's largest lender SBI accounted for over 27% of the total amount owed to public sector banks by wilfull defaulters (entities taking loans and not repaying it despite having the means to). As many as 1,762 wilfull defaulters owed Rs.25,104 crore to State Bank of India as on 31 March. The total outstanding loans by such defaulters rose to more than Rs. 90 k crores, at end FY 2016-17, from Rs.76 k crores at end FY 2015-16. There has been close to 10% increase in the number of wilfull defaulters on annual basis. It increased to 8,915 at the end of March as against 8,167 in the previous fiscal. The gross NPA figures at July beginning 2017 touched Rs.8.29 lakh crores, and net reached Rs.4.67 lakh crores (of which private was only Rs.47,571 crores).

6. IIT JEE Advanced to be fully online : The entrance examination for the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) will go completely online from 2018. The JAB, which is the policy-making body on IIT admissions, decided this. The JEE-Mains is the entrance examination for admission to engineering courses offered across the country and a qualifying exam for JEE-Advanced which is required for admission to the prestigious IITs and NITs. JAB has decided that the IIT Advanced examination will be held on the online format. One can only hope that results will be error-free, unlike in 2017 when a gross mistake led to 18 grace marks for all students in Advanced exam, disrupting the entire results tally, and the matter reaching the Supreme Court.

7. 
Lighting up the Roads by LEDs :
 Government's Street Lighting National programme (SLNP) has lit up 50,000 kms of Indian roads with installation of 30 lakh LED street lights across India. With this milestone, the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (a government company under the administration of Ministry of Power) has become the world’s largest street light management company. The installation of 30 lakh LED street lights has resulted in 39 crore kWh of annual energy savings, and avoided capacity of over 104.19 MW to the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs).

8. 
Printing in 3D in space : NASA Technology Demonstration Mission (TDM) project is developing cutting-edge technology to build and assemble complex hardware and structures on demand in space via 3D printing. The team conducted hundreds of hours of tests to complete the series, printing large beam segments, similar to those used to construct a variety of space structures and subjected printing equipment and printed hardware resistant to the pressures, temperatures and other rigors of deep space. 3D printing is a special system where entire real objects get printed by "printers", layer by layer. It is the ultimate manufacturing disruption, as costly dies will not longer be needed and any amount of intricate complexity that can be modeled into a programme, will be made by the printers!

9. 
Shaking up the private schools, and about time too : The Delhi government will take over around 449 private schools blamed for over-charging extra fee, if they do not roll back their decision (and refund the monies). The schools are among the ones identified by a committee headed by Justice Anil Dev Singh as having overcharged parents on the pretext of implementing recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission. Deputy CM Sisodia said the show cause notices were served four days ago with a deadline to respond within two weeks. This is the first, and the biggest, such action against the private schools in India. Parents usually are helpless and have to dish out whatever is asked. Read more on education related issues here

10. Hitting terror hard, the Bangladeshi way : Ten militants were sentenced to death and nine others jailed for 20 years each by a court in Bangladesh  for attempting to assassinate Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in 2000. The convicts had hatched the plot to kill Hasina in 2000 by planting a high-powered explosive device at an open ground at her village home in southwestern Gopalganj where she was scheduled to address a public rally. The bomb was detected ahead of the rally. Bangladesh has gone hammer and tongs against the Islamists, jailing and hanging many of them regularly. Read more on Bangladesh related issues, here.
