  1. Agriculture – SC panel lays out road map on farmers’ issue – The SC-appointed committee on farmers’ issues has decided to meet the State governments and the State Agricultural Marketing Boards along with the farm unions and cooperatives to seek their views on the farm reform laws, starting January 21. The panel has laid out a two-month road map for consultations after their first meeting on January 19. At the Singhu border, leaders of the protesting unions again met senior Delhi Police officials, who suggested that it might be better to hold the Republic Day tractor parade on the peripheral expressways outside Delhi rather than entering the city. The SC will hear the issue again on January 20, just hours before union leaders and Central Ministers meet for the 10th round of talks. The talks were supposed to be held on January 19, but were postponed.
  2. People & Personalities – Cancer care pioneer no more – A pioneer in cancer care in the country, and the chairperson of the Adyar Cancer Institute, V. Shanta breathed her last in Chennai on January 19. She was 93. A crusader for cancer research and making cancer care affordable for all, Dr. Shanta and her mentor S. Krishnamurthi built the Cancer Institute from a cottage hospital into a 500-plus bedded institution, offering state-of-the-art care to people across the income spectrum. Only 40% are paying beds and the remaining are general beds where patients are boarded and lodged free of cost. Dr. Shanta was the recipient of several honours and awards through her life, recognising her devotion to oncology care and research. The Padma Vibhushan and Ramon Magasaysay awards were among them. Dr. Shanta encouraged research into cancer care, even as she stressed building awareness in the community, to prevent cancer.
  3. World – U.S. won’t lift travel ban: Biden team – Shortly after U.S. President Trump announced the lifting of COVID-19-related travel restrictions on parts of Europe and Brazil, the incoming Biden administration said it would reverse the move. Mr. Trump signed an executive order on January 18 removing restrictions on air travel for most non-U.S. citizens and permanent residents travelling from the Schengen Area, Ireland, the U.K. and Brazil starting January 26. The restrictions instituted in 2020 were also applied to Iran and China — these were not reversed by the executive order. Also, starting January 26, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has said that all those travelling by air into the U.S. will need to show a negative COVID-19 test result before boarding their flights.
  4. World – Biden to introduce Bill for eight-year citizenship path – United States President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration Bill on the first day of his administration, hoping to provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status — a massive reversal from the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies. The Bill puts Mr. Biden on track to deliver on a major campaign promise important to Latino voters and other immigrant communities after four years of President Donald Trump’s restrictive policies and mass deportations. Expected to run hundreds of pages, the Bill is set to be introduced after Mr. Biden takes the oath of office on Jan 20, according to a person familiar with the legislation.
  5. World – Kremlin dismisses calls to free Navalny The Kremlin has dismissed Western demands to release Russia’s most prominent opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, saying calls for mass protests over his arrest were “troubling”. Legal pressure is ramping up against President Vladimir Putin’s best-known domestic critic, who is due in court on defamation charges on January 20, as his allies in Russia call for protests in Moscow this weekend. The last time mass protests took place in Moscow was in the summer of 2019 when Mr. Navalny’s allies and a host of other opposition politicians were barred from balloting in local elections. Russia’s prison service said it had detained Mr. Navalny for violating the terms of a suspended sentence he was given in 2014 on fraud charges, which he says were politically motivated.
  6. Covid-19 – Chinese COVID-19 vaccines find takers in Southeast Asia – China has signed deals with as many as 20 countries, many of which are in Southeast Asia, to offer its home-developed COVID-19 vaccines. With five vaccines being developed in China, Beijing is offering them both as donations and on a commercial basis. Among the countries that are ordering Chinese vaccines are Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Algeria, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Pakistan, Brazil, Ukraine, and Serbia. Pakistan has become the first country in South Asia to approve a Chinese vaccine, giving the nod for emergency use for Sinopharm’s vaccine. Earlier in January 2021, China offered its vaccines to Nepal, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh as it held a multilateral dialogue with the four countries and Pakistan on anti-epidemic cooperation, but so far they have not agreed on orders.
  7. Polity & Governance – Budget session to have Question Hour – The Question Hour, which had been suspended by the government during the monsoon session, will resume when Parliament meets for the Budget session from January 29. The government had claimed that the suspension of the Question Hour, which gives the Opposition an opportunity to hold the government accountable, was an additional precautionary measure to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. The suspension had been strongly criticised by the Opposition. As during the monsoon session, the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha will meet at alternate sessions to ensure that all the three chambers — Rajya Sabha hall, Lok Sabha hall and the Central Hall — were available for both Houses to seat members in keeping with the physical distancing norms.
  8. Covid-19 – India to fly out vaccines to neighbours – India will begin to ship out lakhs of doses of the novel coronavirus vaccine to neighbouring countries beginning January 20, with the first batches expected to reach Bhutan and the Maldives among several countries by special planes as a grant or gift. The release of the shipments is part of the government’s “Neighbourhood First” initiative, and will make India the first country to reach COVID-19 vaccines in South Asia, ahead of China, which has promised but not so far delivered, the World Health Organization and GAVI’s vaccine alliance programme.
  9. Science & Technology – India asks WhatsApp to revoke changes in its privacy policy – The Union government has asked WhatsApp to withdraw the proposed changes to its privacy policy, stating that it raised “grave concerns” over the implications of the choice and autonomy of Indian citizens. In a letter to WhatsApp chief executive officer Will Cathcart, the government pointed out that by not giving the option to opt out of data-sharing with Facebook companies, Indian users were being treated differently from those in Europe. The government also asked the Facebook-owned platform to reconsider its approach to respect the informational privacy, freedom of choice and data security of Indian citizens.
  10. Education – Students with just pass in Class 12 can take JEE-Main – The eligibility criterion for JEE-Main 2021 has been relaxed, allowing students who scored less than 75% in their Class 12 examinations to attempt the entrance test for admission to the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IITs), Schools of Planning and Architecture (SPAs) and other Centrally funded technical institutes. This means that a simple pass in Class 12 will be sufficient for applicants to the JEE-Main in 2021. Students will be allowed to answer 75 questions out of 90, which is 25 out of 30 questions each in physics, chemistry and mathematics in JEE.

4.1 Russia withdraws from Open Skies Treaty

Key points –
  • Russia will withdraw from an international treaty allowing observation flights over military facilities following the U.S. exit from the pact.
  • The treaty was intended to build trust between Russia and the West by allowing the accord’s more than three dozen signatories to conduct reconnaissance flights over each other’s territories to collect information about military forces and activities.
  • U.S. President Donald Trump declared Washington’s intention to pull out of the Open Skies Treaty in May 2020, arguing that Russian violations made it untenable for the United States to remain a party. The U.S. completed its withdrawal from the pact in November 2020.
  • Russia denied breaching the treaty, which came into force in 2002. The European Union has urged the U.S. to reconsider and called on Russia to stay in the pact and lift flight restrictions, notably over its westernmost Kaliningrad region, which lies between NATO allies Lithuania and Poland.
  • Russia has argued that the limits on flights over Kaliningrad, which hosts sizable military forces, are permissible under the treaty’s terms, noting that the U.S. has imposed more sweeping restrictions on observation flights over Alaska.
  • As a condition for staying in the pact after the U.S. pullout, Moscow sought guarantees from NATO allies that they wouldn’t transfer the data collected during their observation flights over Russia to the United States, but was unsuccessful.
  • Moscow has warned that the U.S. withdrawal will erode global security by making it more difficult for governments to interpret the intentions of other nations, particularly amid Russia-West tensions after the Russian annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea in 2014.

  • The only U.S.-Russian arms control pact still standing is the New START nuclear agreement that expires in three weeks. Moscow and Washington have discussed the possibility of its extension, but so far have failed to overcome their differences.
