The Union government recently came out with the national intellectual property policy, which is touted as a mechanism to promote entrepreneurship and innovation in India. Will this policy really do it? Or is really counter-productive to an innovation led economy, which India has been thriving to be? What does the government want to do with this policy?

Agriculture, along with fisheries and forestry, is one of the largest contributors to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). As per estimates by the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the share of agriculture and allied sectors (including agriculture, livestock, forestry and fishery) was 15.35 per cent of GDP during 2015–16.

Maharashtra is staring in the face of one of the biggest water crisis in recent decades, with the Marathwada region’s water reservoirs drying up. The water crisis is intensifying across the region. In the arid region of Marathwada, which received just half its regular rainfall, water storage in the dams is down. Eight of the region's eleven major dams are at dead storage level, meaning water from these dams cannot flow out but has to be lifted out by other means.

Is it just internal evidences or do external structures also play a role in it? These questions have been a matter of discourse in the realm of science for many years now.

India’s education sector is under constant attack from the NDA government, which is trying to convert the centers of learning to a saffron bastion. In addition, the current government is also following the same neo-liberal agenda of the UPA in the education sector. The government is also pushing very hard to corporatize India’s education sector and is also trying to bring in foreign direct investment in education. This is aimed at closing the avenue of learning to the marginalized sections of the society. Apart from this the current regime is also rabidly pushing the agenda of saffronisation of education. The change in curriculum, scrapping of important figures like Jawaharlal Nehru and motivated appointments in educational institutions have been done systematically to kill intellectual rationality. The current regime doesn’t want people to think logically, and wants to push its agenda of homogenous society with the dominance of the upper-class. The removal of freedom struggle from the curriculum has been done because they themselves have a very dubious role in the struggle for independence. Newsclick interviewed Nandita Narain, President DUTA and FEDCUTA on two years of the NDA regime and it's impact on education sector.

The Union Finance minister Arun Jaitley did a quiet job. Buried in the detailed Finance Bill 2016, he did a magic that took the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress off the hook from accepting donations from companies based abroad. In 2014, the Delhi high court had ruled that both the parties have been guilty of violating the rules laid out in the Foreign Contribution Regulations Act  2010 (FCRA) and ordered the government and the Election Commission to take immediate action against two parties.
