World – German doctors say Alexei Navalny was poisoned – German doctors have said that medical examinations indicated that Russia opposition figure Alexei Navalny, who is in a Berlin hospital after collapsing on a plane in Russia last week, had been poisoned.

  6. Science & Technology – Global team of scientists discovers one of the earliest galaxies using India’s AstroSat – In a major breakthrough, a global team led by scientists of the Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) has discovered one of the earliest galaxies in extreme ultraviolet light. AstroSat, India’s first multi-wavelength satellite that has five unique X-ray and ultraviolet telescopes working in tandem, has detected extreme UV light from a galaxy called AUDFs01, 9.3 billion light-years away from Earth. The discovery was made by an international team of astronomers led by Dr Kanak Saha, associate professor of astronomy at IUCAA, and was published on August 24 by Nature Astronomy. The team comprises scientists from India, Switzerland, France, USA, Japan and Netherlands. The team observed the galaxy, which is located in the Extreme Deep field, through AstroSat. These observations lasted for more than 28 hours in October 2016. But it took nearly two years since then to carefully analyse the data to ascertain that the emission is indeed from the galaxy.

  10. Economy – Tough for Indian pharma to sustain Q1 performance: Ind-Ra – Strong revenue growth in the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) business segment and lower operational expenses that perked up the April-June performance of the Indian pharmaceutical companies are unlikely to be the same for them amid global unlocking, says India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra). Ind-Ra said the API business revenue grew 31% year-on-year and 18% quarter-on-quarter in Q1. This came as demand from global and Indian formulation players remained robust, aided by higher pricing opportunities. Growth in API business was primarily attributable to the export business. Indian API players benefited due to a thrust on supply chain continuity from customers and better inventory management in view of supply disruptions from China and the run up in the prices of API. Channel stocking also contributed to the growth.

                  2.1 Government frames norms for enforcement of ‘rules of origin’ for imports under FTAs

                  • Key points –
                  1. The government has come out with norms for the enforcement of ‘rules of origin’ provisions for allowing preferential rate of customs duties on products imported under free trade agreements.
                  2. The new norms have been framed with a view to checking inbound shipments of low quality products and dumping of goods by a third country routed through an FTA partner country.
                  3. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget speech had stated that the government would review ‘rules of origin’ requirements, particularly for certain sensitive items, “so as to ensure that FTAs are aligned to the conscious direction of our policy”.
                  • Highlights –
                  1. The government has come out with norms for the enforcement of ‘rules of origin’ provisions for allowing preferential rate of customs duties on products imported under free trade agreements.
                  2. The Department of Revenue has notified the ‘Customs (Administration of Rules of Origin under Trade Agreements) Rules, 2020’ which would “come into force on September 21, 2020”.
                  3. These rules “shall apply to import of goods into India where the importer makes a claim of preferential rate of duty in terms of a trade agreement.
                  4. The “rules of origin” provision prescribes for the minimal processing that should happen in the FTA country so that the final manufactured product may be called originating goods in that country.
                  5. Under this provision, a country that has inked an FTA with India cannot dump goods from some third country in the Indian market by just putting a label on it. It has to undertake a prescribed value addition in that product to export to India. Rules of origin norms help contain dumping of goods.
                  6. India has inked FTAs with several countries, including Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and ASEAN members.
                  7. Under such agreements, two trading partners significantly reduce or eliminate import/customs duties on the maximum number of goods traded between them.
                  8. According to the notification, to claim preferential rate of duty under a trade agreement, the importer or his agent, at the time of filing bill of entry, has to make a declaration in the bill that the imported products qualify as originating goods for preferential rate of duty under that agreement; and produce certificate of origin.
                  9. The importer also has to possess all relevant information related to country of origin criteria, including the regional value content and submit the same to the proper officer on request.
                  10. An officer may, during the course of customs clearance or thereafter, request for verification of certificate of origin from verification authority where there is a doubt regarding genuineness or authenticity of the certificate for reasons such as mismatch of signatures or seal when compared with specimens of seals and signatures received from the exporting country.

                                                        7. He said that specific areas like hilly areas, border areas and coastal areas need different approach and technologies.
                                                        8. The minister appreciated the use of such technology in road construction in Andaman and Nicobar and motivated the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd to follow the example in rest of the projects.

                                                        13. In order to ensure 100 per cent survival of the plants, avenue plantation of minimum height of 1.5 metre has been emphasised along the national highways.

                                                                    • [message]

In a significant step towards space exploration, a team of researchers from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bengaluru has developed a sustainable process to make space bricks on the lunar surface.
                                                                                                                                                                                              • Highlights –
                                                                                                                                                                                              1. The process enables making load bearing bricks by using lunar soil, bacteria and guar beans.
                                                                                                                                                                                              2. Named as space bricks, it could be used to assemble structures for habitation on the moon surface in future. Sending bricks from Earth is not viable as it takes Rs 7.5 lakh to transport one pound of construction material.
                                                                                                                                                                                              3. The process developed now uses urea sourced from human urine, which could be mixed with lunar soil to build structures on the moon. This decreases the overall expenditure considerably.
                                                                                                                                                                                              4. Since guar gum is used instead of cement, there will be a lower carbon footprint.
