In a sharp response that could intensify the border confrontation, the PM said, “I want to assure the nation that the sacrifice made by our soldiers will not go in vain. India’s integrity and sovereignty is supreme for us, and no one can stop us from defending it. Nobody should have an iota of doubt about this. India wants peace. But when provoked, India will give a befitting reply.”.
  2. India-China on Diplomacy Table – Premeditated action led to clash, will seriously impact ties: Jaishankar to Chinese counterpart – Premeditated and planned action by Chinese troops was directly responsible for the violence and casualties during the June 15 border clash and this unprecedented development would have a serious impact on bilateral relations, foreign minister S Jaishankar told his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on Wednesday even as tensions simmered along the border. Protesting in the strongest terms, Jaishankar said the need of the hour was for China to reassess its actions and take corrective steps.
  3. India-Pak Relations – Pak def brass make unusual visit to ISI HQ , discuss LoC – Pakistan military top brass, including Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the headquarters of Pakistan spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to discuss regional security issues with special focus on the situation of LoC. According to a report by Radio Pakistan, the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General (CJSC) Nadeem Raza, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Naval Chief Admiral Zafar Mehmood Abbasi and Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan visited ISI headquarters in Islamabad.

Salman Masood, the Pakistan correspondent for The New York Times termed the arrival of the CJSC and other service chiefs at the ISI headquarters as an “unusual and unprecedented development”.
  4. COVID-19 Updates – Continue free grain scheme, urge 10 CMs – Government procurement of wheat has scaled a new peak with purchases this year topping 382 lakh tonnes, with the 390 lakh tonnes mark now in sight with two weeks to go for the season to end. The development comes at a time when at least 10 state chief ministers have approached the Centre to continue the scheme to provide 5kg grains to the poor for free to help them combat the dislocation caused by Covid 19. Additional 5kg of free foodgrains under the PM Garib Kalyan Yojana are available only up to this month, prompting CMs cutting across party lines pitching for an extension of three months.
  5. COVID-19 Updates – Fatality rate now 3.4%, up from 2.8% at start of June – With the sudden spike of over 2,003 deaths in one day, India’s Covid-19 death rate has risen to 3.36% now from 2.82% reported by the health ministry around a fortnight ago (on June 2). India’s fatality rate is, however, still lower than the global death rate of over 5%, even as officials say more states are likely to reconcile figures of deceased retrospectively following death audits. The big jump in the death toll in just one day was due to Maharashtra and Delhi updating the number with earlier unreported deaths. For instance, Maharashtra reported 1,409 deaths on June 16, of which only 81 occurred on the single day and rest were on account of retrospective reconciliation of death figures taking total death toll in the state to 5,537 or a little less than half of the total for India.

  7. COVID-19 Updates – Beijing cancels 1,200 flights, shuts schools over new coronavirus outbreak – Beijing moved on a war footing, cancelling hundreds of domestic flights and trains while ramping up the mass testing of 90,000 people to stem the spread of the coronavirus, as the city reported 31 new COVID-19 cases, pushing the tally to 137. Two airports in Beijing have cancelled 1,255 domestic flights, nearly 70% of the scheduled trips. Beijing currently does not operate international flights. The national railway operator will allow passengers, who had booked train tickets in and out of Beijing, to refund tickets without any extra charges.
  8. Environment and Ecology – Carbon emissions surging back as countries and provinces reopen – After a drastic decline this spring, global greenhouse gas emissions are now rebounding sharply, scientists reported, as countries relaxes their coronavirus lockdowns and traffic surge back onto roads. It’s a stark reminder that even as pandemic rages, the world is still far from getting global warming under control.
  9. Indian Economy – RBI moves to tighten rules for housing finance lending business – The RBI proposed a host of changes to the rules that govern housing finance companies (HFCs). These include doubling of net owned funds to Rs 20 crore and dividing all these companies into systematically important ones and the rest. The industry regulator also said that at least 75% of half of HFCs’ net assets should be individual housing loans and proposed that no prepayment penalty should be levied for floating rate loans. According to the RBI, a net owned fund is the total of equity capital, free reserves, balance in share premium account and capital reserves. The central bank also proposed that non-adherence to the new rules should render HFCs to be treated as non-banking finance companies (NBFCs).
  10. Indian Economy – PSBs press accelerator to sanction loans under govt’s MSME package – Public sector banks which are on an overdrive to sell loans under the government’s Rs three lakh crore package for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) before the October 31 deadline have sanctioned an average of Rs 3.75 lakh per borrower to over 8.54 lakh borrower accounts in the last fortnight.

            2.1 Net Financial Assets go up
            • Key point -
            1. RBI data shows that in the year ended March 2020, the net financial assets jumped from Rs 13.73 lakh crore in FY’19 (7.2 % of GDP) to Rs 15.62 lakh crore (7.7% of the GDP) FY’20.
            • Net financial assets - 
            1. Net financial asset is the difference between gross financial assets (GFA) less financial liabilities (FL).
            2. While the GFA rose marginally Rs 21.23 lakh crore in FY’19 to Rs 21.63 lakh crore last year, the FL witnessed a sharp decline from Rs 7.5 lakh crore to 6.01 lakh crore, thereby contributing to the rise in net financial assets.
            3. In terms of percentage of GDP, the GFA declined from 11.1 per cent to 10.6 per cent and the financial liabilities fell deeper from 3.9 per cent of GDP to 2.9 per cent in FY’20.
            • What it means -
            1. Economists say that since there is an economic slowdown and income levels of individuals are either going down or not increasing, the financial sector will practice higher caution in extending loan and that is what is leading to a decline in financial liabilities of households.
            2. It is reflective of a slowdown in the economy.
            • Households’ saving -
            1. While overall savings have not grown in proportion, a closer look at the data shows that there has been shift in preference of deposit instruments by individuals over the last few years.
            2. While household savings in bank deposits as a per cent of GDP stood at 3.8 per cent in year ended March 2019, it went down to 3.4 per cent in March 2020 as banks reduced their interest rates following sharp cut in repo rate by the RBI over the last 18-months.
            3. Small saving instruments that continued to offer higher rates than bank deposits witnessed a higher deployment of household savings as their share as per cent of GDP increased from 1.1 per cent to 1.3 per cent in the same period.
            4. Savings into life insurance funds and mutual funds as a per cent of GDP also went down from 2.2 per cent in FY’19 to 1.9 per cent in FY’20.
            • Future outlook -
            1. RBI expects a spike in savings in current times of slowdown and income uncertainty.
            2.2 First nationwide online delivery-based gas trading platform named Indian Gas Exchange (IGX), launched.

            2.3 WPI (Wholesale Price Index)-based inflation was –3.21% in May 2020.

            2.4 Exports in May 2020 fall 36.47% to $19.05 bn, trade deficit down to $3.15 bn.

            2.5 EPFO launched facility allowing settlement of online claims from its regional offices.

            2.6 CBIC (Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs) launched e-Office to automate internal file handling.

                            3.1 World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought observed on June 17

                            •  News -
                            1. June 17 is observed worldwide as the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought and this year’s ‘global observance event’ is being hosted virtually by Korea Forest Service.
                            2. Theme 2020 -  ‘Food. Feed. Fibre. – the links between consumption and land’
                            • Key point -  
                            1. The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) has said that Land use change, which prepares the ground for zoonoses like the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), should be reversed urgently.
                            • Land use change -
                            1. Land use change simply refers to the conversion of a piece of land's use by humans, from one purpose to another.
                            2. For example, land may be converted from cropland to grassland, or from wild land (e.g. tropical forests) to human-specific land uses (e.g. palm oil plantations).
                            3. Certain types of land use change have well known words associated with them, such as deforestation. afforestation, or rewilding.
                            • Matter of concern - 
                            1. In a short space of time, COVID-19, a zoonotic disease, led to the worst economic crisis since the Second World War.
                            2. UNCCD said that the urgency both at the policy and practical levels to slow down and reverse land use change cannot be overstated.
                            3. Investing in the over 4 million square kilometres (sq km) land earmarked for restoration will help to build back better and safeguard our relationship with nature.
                            4. Agricultural land for food, animal feed and fibre is behind the land use change.
                            • Data analysis -  
                            1. Over 70 per cent of all natural, ice-free land in the world is affected by human use. 
                            2. This could further rise to 90 per cent by 2050, if global land use follows the same path. This land degradation affects some 3.2 billion people worldwide.
                            3. By 2050, over 500 mha of new agricultural land will be needed to meet the global food demand.
                            4. A preliminary analysis shows over 400 mha earmarked under this initiative, which is about 80 per cent of the agricultural land required to meet global food demand by 2050.
                            5. The restoration of these areas as part of building back better to avoid future zoonosis would bring other crucial benefits, particularly mitigating climate change.
                            6. Ecosystem services worth $10.6 trillion are lost due to land degradation annually.
                            7. By contrast, switching to sustainable land management practices could deliver up to $1.4 trillion in increased crop production.
                            8. In the largest-ever global restoration initiative, in the last five years, close to 100 countries have earmarked areas for repair and restoration by 2030.

                                                      1. The festival is also known as Mahakumbh of the East as lakhs of devotees visit it from all over the world.
                                                      2. It serves as an occasion to promote awareness on menstrual hygiene.

                                                      4. The ritualistic fair celebrating the goddess’ period is one of the reasons why the taboo associated with menstruation is less in Assam compared with other parts of India.
                                                      5. This festival symbolizes the fertility cult of goddess Kamakhya which is worshipped in the form of a yoni-like stone over which a natural spring flows, as there is no idol in the temple.
                                                      6. Kamakhya, atop Nilachal Hills in Guwahati, is one of 51 shaktipeeths or seat of Shakti followers, each representing a body part of the Sati, Lord Shiva’s companion.

                                                      2. Earlier, the administrations had also banned the famous Chaitra Jatra festival at Tara Tarini hill shrine.

                                                      1. Meru Jatra marks the end of the 21-daylong festival of penance named ‘Danda Nata’ (celebrated in the month of Chaitra).
                                                      2. Danda as the name implies, is selfinflicted pain, which the danduas (people who participate in the festival) undergo to pay their obeisance to the lord Kali. 
                                                      3. It is also a form of worshipping the lord Shiva and his consort Parvati.
                                                      4. The origin of the festival is generally traced to 8th and 9th AD after the decadence of Buddhism in Odisha.
                                                      5. On the occasion of Mahavishub Sankranti (start of the Odia New Year) thousands of devotees used to gather at the Tara Tarini hill shrine and other temples.

                                                      7. The twin goddesses Tara and Tarini represent one Shakti and are the main deity of Ganjam district
                                                      • Pattachitra style of painting -
                                                      1. It is one of the oldest and most popular art forms of Odisha.
                                                      2. The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit words Patta, meaning canvas, and Chitra, meaning picture.

                                                                                        8. The agency wants to use the Gateway as a science platform to look back at the Earth, observe the Sun, and get unobstructed views of the vast universe.
                                                                                        9. According to NASA, by studying the geology of the Earth, the Moon, and Mars and the ways in which they are similar and different from each other, we can learn important things about how planets and planetary systems form.
