  1. COVID-19 – With 3 million cases, COVID-19 unlikely to abate soon: experts – India crossed three million cases on Sunday (August 23) after adding nearly 69,239 cases the previous day — the fourth straight day that it added over 69,000 cases. India continued to be placed behind Brazil and the United States in the overall case load and, at 56,706 deaths, had only half as many as Brazil and less than a third as that of the U.S. India on Saturday reported having tested a million samples — the first time it surpassed this milestone. It has been conducting an average 8,89,935 tests in the last five days and had tested 34.4 million samples till August 21. Only about 23% of the confirmed cases, or about 7,00,000, are active cases requiring treatment and the case fatality ratio — or the confirmed deaths per ratified cases — has dipped to less than 2%.
  2. Polity & Governance – Find a new party chief, Sonia Gandhi tells Cong. – Faced with an unprecedented situation of senior leaders questioning the party’s top leadership in a letter, Congress president Sonia Gandhi is learnt to have asked her colleagues to find a new party chief as she was not keen to continue as interim head. Ms. Gandhi is believed to have conveyed this to a senior party leader, who handles organisational matters, soon after completing a year as the party’s interim chief on August 10. However, the party’s chief spokesperson, Randeep Surjewala, denied that “Ms. Gandhi has spoken to anyone or written any letter”.
  3. COVID-19 – India could get vaccine by year-end – Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has said if everything goes well, India will get a vaccine against the novel coronavirus by the end of this year. Three COVID-19 vaccine candidates, including two indigenous ones, are in different phases of development. The phase I human clinical trials of the two vaccines — one developed by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the ICMR, and the other by Zydus Cadila Ltd — have been completed and the trials have moved to phase II. The Serum Institute of India (SII), which has partnered with AstraZeneca for manufacturing the vaccine developed by the University of Oxford, has been permitted to conduct its phase two and three human clinical trials in India.
  4. World – S. Korea tightens curbs after fresh COVID-19 outbreak – South Korea ramped up COVID-19 restrictions on August 23 to try to contain a growing outbreak, as many countries battled worrying surges in infections. The pandemic has killed more than 8,00,000 people globally, and continues to unleash destruction, with many countries detecting spikes in infections not seen for many months. Infections have soared past 23 million globally, and some countries are still facing first waves. South Korea, which largely brought its outbreak under control, tightened curbs to try to contain a new cluster. Nightclubs, karaoke bars and beaches have been closed, with tight restrictions on large gatherings and religious services, after hundreds of infections were linked to Protestant churches. Face masks will be mandatory in the capital Seoul’s public areas from midnight.
  5. Economy – In 40 days, 69 lakh seek jobs on govt portal, just a fraction employed – A GOVERNMENT jobs portal launched by the Prime Minister on July 11 has seen registration of over 69 lakh individuals in just 40 days. But the number of individuals who got jobs is just a fraction of those who registered, showing that employment will be the biggest political economy challenge for the government as it restarts economic activities while trying to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. In just a week, between August 14 and August 21, more than 7 lakh people registered. The number of people who took up jobs during the week, however, stood at just 691. According to data collated by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship on its ASEEM (Aatmanirbhar Skilled Employee Employer Mapping) portal, only 2 per cent of the 3.7 lakh candidates looking for jobs have actually got one. Of the 69 lakh migrant workers who registered, 1.49 lakh were offered jobs, but only 7,700 could join work.
  6. Economy – For the first time, farm sector set to grow even as GDP sees a contraction – April-June may be the first time that India’s economy would contract year-on-year since the government started coming out with quarterly estimates of GDP from 1996-97. But the data for the quarter, to be released on August 31, could also show GDP falling for the first time in spite of agricultural production going up. The country’s GDP registered an annual decline, at minus 5.2%, last in 1979-80. But that year also recorded negative growth for agricultural GDP, at minus 12.8%. Even the previous GDP contractions of 0.3% in 1972-73, 3.7% in 1965-66, and 1.2% in 1957-58 were accompanied by farm output falling by 5%, 11% and 4.5% respectively.
  7. Polity & Governance – Trump team releases ad featuring Modi – Trying to specifically woo Indian-American voters, the Trump campaign has released a commercial featuring footage of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and U.S. President Donald Trump held in Houston almost one year ago and in Ahmedabad in February. While the data show that Indian Americans mostly vote Democrat, the Republican Party is trying to target voters who are likely to be switch loyalties based on the Modi-Trump camaraderie. The clip shows Mr. Modi holding up Mr. Trump’s arm on the stage in Houston and a shot of the two walking around the arena, hands clasped.
  8. Economy & Policy – Businesses to get GST registration in 3 days with Aadhar verification – Businesses which will provide Aadhaar number while applying for registration under the Goods and Services Tax will get the approval in three working days. The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) last week notified Aadhaar authentication for GST registration with effect from August 21, 2020. The notification also provides that in case businesses do not provide Aadhaar number, then GST registration would be granted only after physical verification of the place of business.
  9. Economy – AGR dues from telcos: Spectrum value erodes, govt on a sticky wicket – Whichever way the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) case concerning telcos goes, the ultimate loser will be the government. This is because the value of spectrum which is currently with the telecom operators — their main asset, of course on lease from the government – has diminished. If an operator like Vodafone Idea (VIL) does not get to pay its AGR dues of Rs 58,000 crore in deferred installments of 15-20 years as it has sought, it may have to file for bankruptcy and then the Centre stands to lose over Rs 2 lakh crore.
  10. Economy – Local lockdowns, low industrial activity push July fuel consumption down – The recovery of diesel and petrol consumption in India to pre-Covid levels slowed in July on the back of lower demand due to state-level lockdowns, low industrial activity and reduced movement of private vehicles. The consumption of diesel fell 19.3 per cent to 5.5 million metric tonnes (MMT), as against 6.8 MMT in July 2019 and down 12.7 per cent from June 2020, signalling a slowdown in the recovery of diesel consumption to pre-Covid levels. The recovery of petrol consumption too slowed in July with consumption of around 2.3 MMT, the same as in June but down 10.3 per cent from consumption of 2.5 MMT in July 2019. The consumption of diesel hit a low of 3.3 MMT and that of petrol fell below 1 MMT this April, as a result of the lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19.

                  2.1 RBI releases ‘National Strategy for Financial Education: 2020-2025’ 

                  • Key points –
                  1. To achieve the vision of creating a financially aware and empowered India, the Reserve Bank has released the ‘Second National Strategy for Financial Education (NSFE) for the period 2020-2025.
                  2. The NSFE 2020-25 intends to support the Centre and financial sector regulators’ vision of empowering various sections of society to “develop adequate knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviour which are needed to manage their money better and to plan for the future”.
                  • Highlights –
                  1. To achieve the vision of creating a financially aware and empowered India, certain strategic objectives have been laid down which include inculcating financial literacy concepts among various sections of the population through financial education to “make it an important life skill”.
                  2. The strategy recommends adoption of a multi-stakeholder approach to achieve financial well-being of Indians.
                  3. In order to achieve the ‘Strategic Objectives’ laid down, the document recommends adoption of a ‘5 C’ approach for dissemination of financial education through emphasis on development of relevant ‘Content’, developing ‘Capacity’ among the intermediaries involved in providing financial services, leveraging on the positive effect of ‘Community’ led model for financial literacy through appropriate ‘Communication Strategy’, and lastly, enhancing ‘Collaboration’ among various stakeholders.”
                  • Survey –
                  1. As part of the exercise to prepare the the strategy paper, the National Centre for Financial Education (NCFE) also conducted a survey to find out the status of financial literacy in India.
                  2. As per the survey, the percentage of population above the financial literacy threshold Is highest in Western India that houses the two major stock exchanges of the country while people in north East come a close second.
                  3. Eastern and Central India still have to go a long way in updating their financial understanding.
                  4. Also, the salaried class in both the government and the private sector seems to understand financial products better than other segments.
                  5. The amount of earnings also reflect financial understanding of people with those earning the highest crossing the financial education threshold easily while those in middle to lower income groups have still to do a lot of catching up.
                  6. Surprisingly, there has been a marked improvement in understanding financial products by rural India in the last five years with 24 per cent of the population now fairly aware about financial systems as against just 15 per of the population in 2013.
                  2.2 RBI to introduce a mechanism of Positive Pay for cheque above Rs. 50,000
                  • Cheque Payment –
                  1. To enhance the safety of cheque payments, RBI has decided to introduce a mechanism of Positive Pay for all cheques of value Rs 50,000 and above.
                  2. This will cover approximately 20 per cent and 80 per cent of total cheques by volume and value, respectively.
                  3. RBI has informed that the operational guidelines in this regard will be issued separately.
                  4. The Cheque Truncation System (CTS) for clearing cheques is operational pan-India and presently covers 2 per cent and 15 per cent of total retail payments in terms of volume and value respectively.
                  • Highlights –
                  1. The average value of a cheque cleared in CTS presently is Rs 82,000.
                  2. The CTS-2010 standard specifying minimum-security features on cheque leaves acts as a deterrent against cheque frauds, while standardisation of field placements on cheque forms enables straight-through-processing by use of optical / image character recognition technology.
                  3. To further augment customer safety in cheque payments and reduce instances of fraud occurring on account of tampering of cheque leaves, RBI has now decided to introduce a mechanism of Positive Pay for all cheques of value Rs 50,000 and above.
                  4. Under this mechanism, cheques will be processed for payment by the drawee bank based on information passed on by its customer at the time of issuance of cheque.
                  5. ICICI Bank is one bank that has already initiated this mechanism.
                  • Positive Pay Meaning –  
                  1. All one needs to do is share the details of issued cheque like Cheque Number, Cheque date, Payee name, Account number, Amount etc along with an image of the front and reverse side of the cheque, before handing it over to the beneficiary.
                  2. When the beneficiary submits the cheque for encashment, the cheque details are compared with the details provided to the Bank through Positive Pay.
                  3. If the details match, the cheque is honoured. In case of mismatch in cheque details, the cheque is referred to you.

                  1. ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company and Bharti AXA General Insurance Co Ltd have said they will combine their insurance businesses through a share swap deal, paving the way for the creation of the country’s third-largest general insurance entity.
                  • Highlights –
                  1. The boards of both the companies approved entering into definitive agreements for demerger of Bharti AXA’s non-life insurance business into ICICI Lombard through a Scheme of Arrangement.
                  2. Based on the share exchange ratio recommended by independent valuers and accepted by the boards, the shareholders of Bharti AXA will receive two shares of ICICI Lombard for every 115 shares of Bharti AXA held by them as on the date on which the Scheme of Arrangement is approved by the boards of both the companies.
                  3. ICICI Bank holds 51.89 per cent stake in ICICI Lombard, while the rest is with the public.
                  4. The combined entity shall have a market share of 8.7 per cent on pro-forma basis.

                                                      3.1 Observe ‘Earth Overshoot Day’ on August 22

                                                        • Highlights –
                                                        1. The Global Footprint Network is encouraging the observation of “Earth Overshoot Day.”
                                                        2. According to the network, Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year.
                                                        3. The date was calculated by the evaluation of carbon emissions, forest harvest, food demand and factors that could impact global biocapacity.
                                                        4. Global Footprint Network calculated the number of days that Earth’s biocapacity can provide for humanity’s Ecological Footprint.
                                                        5. Research found that there was a 9.3% reduction in the global Ecological Footprint compared to the same period last year. The network attributes this to the following:
                                                        6. -    -8.4% of forest products footprint
                                                        7. -    -14.5% carbon footprint
                                                        8. However, the Global Footprint Network noted that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the global food system has been disrupted, leading to an unchanged food footprint compared to 2019.
                                                          GFN encourages all to #movethedate by exploring sustainability solutions

                                                                  • [message]

                                                                  2. Iran has invested heavily in its missile and drone programmes, which Tehran claims is purely for defensive purposes.
                                                                  3. Tehran was accused of launching missile and drone strikes on Saudi oil facilities in 2019, while the US pulled out of a nuclear deal with Iran under President Donald Trump, in part due to its missile programme.
                                                                  4. Washington has sought to extend an arms embargo on Iran, which is due to expire in October.
                                                                  5. The airstrike of Soleimani led to retaliatory missile strikes on Iraqi bases hosting US military personnel.
                                                                  6. Since then, tensions have eased but Iran has been vocal about its opposition to a peace deal agreed between Israel and the UAE.
                                                                                          • [message]

                                                                                          1. With 358 kitchens in 213 city wards, the Rajasthan government will be providing food from 8 am till 1 pm and from 5 pm till 8 pm on a daily basis.
