  1. Defence – Military specialists to get S-400 training in Moscow – As India prepares to receive the first batch of S-400 long-range air defence system by year-end, the first group of Indian military specialists are scheduled to depart for Moscow soon to undergo training courses on the S-400. In October 2018, India signed a $5.43-billion deal with Russia for five S-400 Triumf regiments despite objections from the U.S. and the threat of sanctions under Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). In the farewell address early this month (January 2021), outgoing U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Juster declined to comment on whether the U.S. would proceed with CAATSA sanctions against India over the S-400 purchase, but said India should consider the impact of such purchases that constrain “technology transfers” and other defence cooperation between India and the US.
  2. World – Biden sworn in, delivers message of unity, hope – While the transfer of power was not peaceful in the world’s oldest constitutional republic, that transfer did occur on January 20 on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol, as Joseph R. Biden Jr. was sworn in as the 46th President of the U.S. Just two weeks earlier, a mob had broken into the Capitol seeking to block the ratification of the election results. Addressing the country for the first time as President, Mr. Biden delivered a message of unity and hope while laying out the enormous challenges faced by the country, from a raging pandemic to deep political divisions and frayed race relations. He referred to the Capitol violence of January 6, and said attempts to overturn the elections will never be successful.
  3. Agriculture – In a thaw, Centre offers to put off farm reforms for 18 months – Farm union leaders will consider a proposal from the Union government to suspend the implementation of the three contentious farm reform laws for the next year-and-a-half while a committee is formed to look into their demands. Union leaders said the Centre had also offered to submit an affidavit to the Supreme Court to this effect. They will discuss the proposal internally and return with their response at the next round of discussions on January 22. The proposal was made during the 10th round of talks on January 20, and is the first serious sign of movement in the negotiations since tens of thousands of farmers began their protest on the borders of Delhi almost two months ago. Their major demands have been a repeal of the three laws on agricultural marketing, and a new legal guarantee for minimum support prices.
  4. Study/Report – Karnataka tops in innovation, shows index – Karnataka retained its leadership position in the major States category in the second edition of India Innovation Index released by NITI Aayog on January 20. It was followed by Maharashtra, which moved past Tamil Nadu to occupy the second place. Other States in the top 10 are Telangana, Kerala, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. Barring Maharashtra, all other States in the top five are in the south. Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Bihar scored the lowest on the index, which put them at the bottom in the “major States” category.
  5. Economy – States’ FY21 fiscal deficit to hit peak of ₹8.7 lakh crore: Crisil – The States are headed for a fourfold expansion in their revenue deficit this fiscal over the last year (2020) due to far lesser tax collections. Collections had been impacted on account of the lockdowns and the consequent slump in economic activity. Tax collections may slowly recover with improving economic outlook. However, higher interest burden because of high debt funding of this year’s GFD, coupled with sticky revenue expenditures, may keep revenue deficits high for States and GFD composition skewed over the next 2-3 years. In this fiscal, revenue deficit of States would contribute 70% of GFD, sharply higher than the average 15% seen over the past five fiscals. That is because of the 15% on-year decline in revenue this fiscal.
  6. Covid-19 – 1.1 lakh vaccinations, 82 adverse events on Day 5 – On January 20, 1,12,007 people were inoculated against COVID-19, taking the count of beneficiaries to 7,86,000. There have been four deaths among those vaccinated — three due to cardiac arrest and not linked to the vaccination and one was still being analysed. All in all, the States have reported 82 adverse events following immunisation. While 10 of them have merited hospitalisation, seven have been discharged and none grave enough to be recorded as a “serious/severe AEFI”. The deaths were reported from Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh, Bellary and Shivamogga in Karnataka and Nirmal in Telangana. On the fifth day since the vaccination has begun, 20 States organised sessions. Andhra Pradesh recorded the highest number at 22,548 whereas Himachal Pradesh pooled only 45. Kerala that has recorded some of the highest infections in the country recorded only 262.
  7. Polity & Governance – Assam Assembly polls before CBSE board exams, says CEC – Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora has said the Assam Assembly polls will be held keeping in mind the Rongali Bihu festival and the process will be finished before the CBSE Board exams beginning on May four. The political parties during interaction with the full bench of the poll panel had made a plea to keep in view the Bihu festival while deciding the poll schedule to encourage more voter turnout and also to ensure that the monsoon, which usually arrives early in the State, is avoided. Rongali Bihu, also known as Bohag Bihu, is celebrated by the people of Assam to mark the Assamese New Year. It is usually observed in the second week of April with the onset of spring.
  8. Economy – ‘Weak reform push, financial sector woes may damp growth’ – Fitch Ratings on January 20 said India’s medium-term growth potential is at about 6.5% but weak implementation of reforms, combined with continued financial sector problems, could lower its potential. It said the revival of the reform agenda is among the Indian government’s policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic shock. Recently, the ratings agency last week said India’s gross GDP would expand by 11% in the financial year 2021-22, after witnessing a 9.4% contraction in the current fiscal period ending in March 2021.
  9. World – Trump pardons former aide Bannon, 72 others – U.S. President Trump on January 20 pardoned 73 people, including his former aide Steve Bannon and rapper Lil Wayne, just hours before he was due to leave office. The list of those pardoned — as well as 70 people whose sentences were commuted — was likely to draw allegations of cronyism, at the end of a term during which the President promised to “drain the swamp” of Washington politics. Neither Trump nor his relatives were listed, amid speculation he could use the legally dubious tactic of a pre-emptive pardon to fend off future charges.
  10. World – Biden to reverse Trump policies on Day 1 – U.S. President Joe Biden plans to kick off his new administration on January 20 with orders to restore the U.S. to the Paris climate accord and the World Health Organization. Mr. Biden will sign 15 orders and actions just hours after being sworn in as the U.S. leader to break from the policies of departing President Donald Trump and set new paths on immigration, the environment, fighting COVID-19 and the economy. In first-day moves, he will end Mr. Trump’s much-assailed ban on visitors from several Muslim-majority countries and halt construction of the wall that Mr. Trump ordered on the U.S.-Mexico border to stem illegal immigration. He will also set a mask mandate on federal properties to stem the spread of COVID-19; restore protections of valuable nature reserves removed by Mr. Trump; and seek freezes on evictions and protection for millions behind on their mortgages due to the pandemic.
