Q3.
The PCI must act in the interest of a free media and not kowtow to the government.

(I) The Press Council of India (PCI)’s support of government restrictions on communication last week was brazenly contrary to its mandate and purpose. It has sought to intervene in a petition by Kashmir Times executive editor Anuradha Bhasin, pending before the apex court, seeking an end to the restrictions on communication in Jammu and Kashmir that were imposed before the Government’s decision on August 5 to revoke the special constitutional status of the erstwhile State.

(II) The PCI’s stance in the instant case goes against the letter and spirit of this claim. Its track record may not have been stellar; nevertheless, its interventions occasionally held the mirror to deviant journalists and publications and, at the same time, sought to shield the profession and professionals from the highhandedness of the state and non-state actors.

(III) Mr. Malik said whenever there was a crisis in Kashmir in the past; at least 50 people would die by the first week. “Our attitude is that there should be no loss of human life. If there is no phone connection for 10 days, so be it. But, we will restore everything soon. In fact, we delivered meat, vegetables and eggs to people’s doorsteps on Id,” he said.

(a) Only [I] (b) Only [II] (c) Only [III] (d) Both [I] & [III] (e) None of these

Q4.
The rupee is falling, but it is too early to start worrying

(I) In fact, the fall will make India’s exporters competitive. Economists often complain that the rupee is over-valued in terms of the real effective exchange rate making exports uncompetitive. Interestingly, the Reserve Bank of India does not appear to have intervened in support of the rupee, signalling that it is not comfortable with the fall.

(II) The fall in the rupee is, of course, influenced to some extent by the overall economic slowdown and the sell-out in the equity markets in the last couple of months leading to capital withdrawal by foreign portfolio investors. The capital outflow particularly has hit the currency’s valuation. But the fall is no cause for alarm as yet because there is stability on the external account with the current account deficit at a comfortable 0.7% in the quarter ended March 2019.

(III) That judgment in Justice K.S. Puttaswamy (Retd) vs Union Of India fundamentally changed the way in which the government viewed its citizens’ privacy, both in practice and prescription. It undertook structural reforms and brought transparency and openness in the process of commissioning and executing its surveillance projects, and built a mechanism of judicial oversight over surveillance requests
(a) Only [I] (b) Only [II] (c) Only [III] (d) Both [I] & [III] (e) None of these

Q5.
India needs to remind President Trump of the real basis of its claim to J&K
(I) The unfair discrimination against a nascent industry in domestic alternative assets is Exhibit A of the nonstrategic thinking that’s clouding policy-making in India. Exhibit B is the so-called angel tax on startups, a much-hated levy that has finally been removed. The tax was introduced by the previous Congress Party-led government and treated money raised by fledgling firms as income.

(II) India is belatedly acknowledging that something’s gone wrong with what was once billed as the world’s fastest-growing economy. That’s the good news. The bad news is that New Delhi still doesn’t have a cohesive strategy to reverse the slowdown.

(III)Mr. Trump’s assertion that the issue over Kashmir is a religious one unwittingly plays into the Pakistani narrative of a conflict that has defied such narrow definitions for more than 70 years. It is therefore necessary that the government firmly corrects Mr. Trump on the matter.

(a) Only [I] (b) Only [II] (c) Only [III] (d) Both [I] & [III] (e) None of these
