Bihar to aid in branding and promotion of export items
government would “actively intervene” to promote exports from Bihar, which currently languishes at a miniscule 0.05% of the total exports from the country.
The state would help in branding of products from various districts to create demand for them in the international market
one product or item would be identified from each district for branding and its “pull-value” in the international market would be created.
Among the items for identification are‘katarni chawal and chura’ from Bhagalpur, fruits (shahi litchi, Bhagalpuri silk and ‘malda’ mango) and sweets as well as handicraft items and Madhubani paintings.
CAG report on Siachen troops
Comptroller and Auditor-General (CAG) pulled up the Army for deficiencies in the provision of special clothing, rations and housing for troops in high-altitude areas, including Siachen.
There were delays of up to four years in the procurement of high-altitude clothing and equipment, leading to an acute shortage of essential clothing and equipment. There was a critical shortage of snow goggles, ranging from 62% to 98%. The troops had not been issued ‘multi-purpose boots’ from November 2015 to September 2016, and had to resort to the recycling of available boots
