  1. Polity & Governance – SC moots panel for farmer-govt. talks – Talks between the Union government and farmer leaders on the three controversial agriculture laws had broken no ground and were bound to fail, the Supreme Court said on December 16. A Bench, led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad A. Bobde, proposed the setting up of a committee of farmer leaders from across the country, including the Bharatiya Kisan Union that has been at the forefront of the protests, and government representatives to resolve the issue. The court has impleaded BKU (Rakesh Tikait), BKU-Sidhupur (Jagjeet S. Dallewal), BKU-Rajewal (Balbeer Singh Rajewal), BKU-Lakhowal (Harinder Singh Lakhowal), BKU-Dakaunda (Buta Singh Burjgill), BKU-Doaba (Manjit Singh Rai) and Kul Hind Kisan Federation (Prem Singh Bhangu). Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said the farmers had turned their back on the government’s efforts to talk.
  2. Polity & Governance – Cabinet clears spectrum auction – The Union Cabinet has approved the auction of 2,251.25 megahertz of spectrum with a reserve price of ₹3.92 lakh crore, a move that should help boost the quality of 4G telecom services in the country. Spectrum in the frequency bands of 700MHz, 800MHz, 900MHz, 1,800MHz, 2,100MHz, 2,300MHz and 2,500MHz would be offered for 20 years. The notice inviting applications would be issued this month and the auction conducted by March 2021. Bidders will have to comply with conditions, including block size, in which bidders will be able to submit their bids, spectrum cap or the maximum amount of spectrum that can be held by a bidder after completion of auction, roll-out obligations and payment terms.
  3. Covid-19 – Covaxin Phase-1 trials show promising results – Phase-1 results show that Covaxin, a COVID-19 vaccine candidate, is safe. It was well-tolerated in all dose groups and generated a “robust immune response”. The interim findings from the Phase-1 placebo-controlled randomised double-blind trial on the safety and immunogenicity of three different formulations of BBV152 reported the results of the trial on 375 participants, with one adverse event which was found to be unrelated to the vaccine. The vaccine is being developed by the Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
  4. Polity & Governance – Citing national security, govt set to bar Chinese telecom gear – In a first, the government has decided to issue a National Security Directive for the telecommunication sector to mandate scrutiny of telecom equipment and sources, in what is seen as its latest economic offensive against Chinese equipment vendors, amid heightened tension at the Ladakh border. The action, finalised by the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), will result in a list of trusted sources and products from the government, which will also amend the licence norms for telecom companies. Although the government refrained from specifying the country that will be impacted, it was clearly aimed at India’s aggressive neighbour, with companies such as Huawei and ZTE likely to face enhanced scrutiny, and even rejections, to ward off any covert operation and possible threat to the telecom infrastructure.
  5. Economy – SBI sees recovery narrowing FY21 GDP contraction to 7.4% – India’s GDP is expected to shrink 7.4% in FY21 on a better-than-projected recovery, SBI said in a research report, upgrading its earlier forecast of a 10.9% contraction. SBI’s research team also opined that it would take seven quarters from the fourth quarter of FY21 for GDP to reach the pre-pandemic level in nominal terms. It said the revised GDP estimates were based on SBI’s ‘Nowcasting Model’ with 41 high-frequency indicators associated with industry activity, service activity, and the global economy. Based on this model, GDP growth for third quarter was forecast to be about 0.1% (with downward bias). Out of the 41 high-frequency indicators, 58% were showing acceleration in the third quarter. Apart from Q3, the growth in Q4 would also be in positive territory (at 1.7%). FY22 GDP growth was forecast at 11%, primarily due to base effect. It further said even as growth outlook had improved, the decline in government expenditure had been quite significant to ₹3.62 lakh crore in Q2, from ₹4.86 lakh crore in Q1.
  6. Economy – U.S. puts India on ‘currency manipulators’ monitoring list – The U.S. Treasury has labeled Switzerland and Vietnam as currency manipulators and added three new names, including India, to a watch list of countries it suspects of taking measures to devalue their currencies against the dollar. The U.S. Treasury has said that in the year through June 2020 Switzerland and Vietnam had intervened heavily in currency markets to prevent effective balance of payments adjustments. To be labeled a manipulator by the U.S. Treasury, countries must at least have a $20 billion-plus bilateral trade surplus with the U.S., foreign currency intervention exceeding 2% of GDP and a global current account surplus exceeding 2% of GDP.
  7. Study/Research – With just 1 in 5 workers ‘skilled’, India ranks 129 in Human Development Report – Barely one in five Indians in the labour force is “skilled” according to the just released Human Development Report (HDR) 2020. With the figure at 21.2%, India is 129th among 162 countries for which this data is available. The countries closest to India in sharing this dubious distinction are Ivory Coast, Sudan, Liberia and Cameroon, most of which are classified in the low human development category. Others with similar level of skill in their labour force are mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. The United Nations Development Programme’s HDR ranks countries according to a wide range of human development parameters apart from core economic factors like GDP and per capita income. The report defines skilled labour as people who are 15 years or older and have “intermediate” or “advanced” level of education as classified by the Unesco.
  8. Education – JEE (Main) to be held four times in 2021 – The Joint Entrance Examination (Main) will be held in February, March, April and May of 2021.

According to the National Testing Agency, which conducts the exam, online applications can be submitted till January 16, with the application portal reopening after each session.
  9. Education – Modi to be first PM at AMU event since 1964 – PM Modi will be the chief guest at Aligarh Muslim University’s centenary celebrations on December 22. The last time an incumbent PM attended an AMU event was in 1964, when Lal Bahadur Shastri delivered the convocation address. Union education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank will also be attending the AMU event. Earlier, AMU officials had said that President Ram Nath Kovind would be attending the centenary celebrations. Now he has deferred his plan and will be attending in February 2021. All events will be held online as Covid-19 restrictions are in place.
  10. Economy – Cabinet clears ₹3,500-cr. subsidy for sugar exports – The Centre has approved a ₹3,500-crore subsidy to sugar mills to incentivise them to export 60 lakh tonnes of surplus stock in the 2020-21 season, helping them to clear payment arrears due to cane farmers. The decision would benefit five crore cane farmers and an equal number of mill workers. The move comes at a time when thousands of farmers, including a group of cane farmers from U.P., are agitating on the borders of the national capital. The sugar industry as well as the farmers were in crisis with production at 310 lakh tonnes against the annual domestic consumption demand of 260 lakh tonnes.

History –
  • It was following the success of Operation Vijay, that Goa was finally relieved from foreign rule.
  • Considered as one of the most significant historic events in Goa’s history before and post-independence, this military operation had brought a complete end to the long dominion of the Portuguese rule.
  • Even after the independence of India from British Rule, Goa still remained under the Portuguese. However, looking back to history we get to know that the Portuguese were not quite ready to free Goa and let it assimilate with Union of Independent India.
  • Though there were many requests made from our government to the Portuguese empire regarding this issue, every single one of them went unheard.
  • Thus, the government decided to take some concrete steps in this direction. So, towards the end of 1961, Indian Armed Forces were deployed within the Portuguese occupied boundaries.
  • During this time there were also many rumours which claimed that the Portuguese have supersonic interceptors and air-force on stand-by to defeat the Indian army, but in the end, it was the Indian side which won.
  • It is said that on December 17, 1961 close to 30,000 Indian ground troops successfully conquered the Portuguese navy amounting to 3,000 men which led to the formal closure of the issue and merger of Goa to the Union of India.
