    Regret any typos !

  6. Pakistan's military's first choice is Chaudhary Nasir Ali khan , not Imran khan because of Imran's impulsive nature .
    India should not play in Chinese hands by siding with China in trade war. We should not worry about trade war as we are not a big exporter . This is where we truly need Nehruvian NAM. Let US and China fight , it is a win-win situation for India.

  7. My answers in simple language, correct me if i am wrong.
    Q1- What is a currency war and how it is related to trade war?
    Ans- While a currency war is simply initiated by a country devaluing its currency so the exports become more competitive in International market and import be expensive. But if a nation see this that a country knowingly doing this and also follow the trail , followed by other nation and so on. It is called currency war. Normally a trade war took place first, than the devaluation of currency is done to make exports more profitable and in high volume.

    Q2- Can India use its foreign reserve to fight currency war?
    Ans- Yes, RBI can use its foreign reserve to fight currency war, but its somehow not the best solution to deal with the problem. RBI losing its foreign reserve will result in reduction of import cover. And if then a great inflation hit the economy, India will not be able to survive it.

    Q3- What would be pressures by CAD and short term Debt for currency war?

    Q4- Factors for Rupee’s value over next few months?
    Ans- Some key factors that are playing key role in rupee value these days are price of crude oil, China US trade war, poor condition of small and macro industries.

    Q5- Overall situation in the number of patents filled in India, when comparing Indian and foreign companies.
    Ans- By seeing the stats of 2016-17 for patents filled in India, one can simply stat that India is not doing well in filling patents its work. The Qualcomm, the US company alone filled 1840 patents for the same period in which India’s institutes and Research organizations were able to file only 781.
    I agree on the fact that in the field of innovation we are not doing so great, but I am sure that many Indians are doing great inventions/innovations but don’t understand its value and patenting it until it is long gone and filled patent by someone else organizations. Many of us, might be giving our inventions as we work for major outsider organizations/MNCs etc.

    Q6- Mobocracy, Kakistocracy, Aristocracy , Plutocracy ?
    Ans- Mobocracy- Rule or Domination by Mob/Masses,
    Kakistocracy – Rule by wrong/worst element of society.
    Aristocracy – Government held by noble persons
    Plutocracy – Government by wealthy

    Q7- What was the evolution process of G20 is all about?

    Q8- At an arm’s length means?
    Ans- It is simply means “out of reach”. I put my mobile at an arm’s length to avoid digital disturbance. Or it can also means to avoid some connection or intimacy. Like you warn someone, “Be an arm’s length away from me while in the college”.

    Q9- Overall total Installed power capacity in India as on Date.
    Ans- 344 GW as on 30 June.

    Q10- Overall evolution of GST over the 12 months of its existent?
    Ans- Started high with tax rates on many products from the beginning India is now seeing its smooth movement toward classifications of these taxes around 2 or 3 slabs. Initially there were 228 goods under 28% slab which are now down to 37. GST council is also taking care for the social issues like exempt of Sanitary Pads and the small/medium businesses by reducing the tax slab on crafts made by wood, stone, marbal, Done(Bowl made of leaves) down to 5%. Also put down the tax slab for electronics products like refrigerators, freezers, Television which is also purchased by medium economical family. Now when under Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana(DDUGJY) electrification is done for all villages the number of buying electronics will rise and will generate more business hence more GST from electronics can be yield out this way.

    Q11- What are the radical proposals of GST task force for seamless movement of goods in India?
    Ans- The task force submitted its proposals to GST Council which recommends of abolishing the various checks for pollution, fitness, road tax, permits etc. and put one single certificate for one year where all these will be topped up and then connect it with the regional database of transport. If this happens correctively than it might remove the long long lines of traffics because of transport trucks for checking permits and other checks.While it will get more flexibility to the government in case of handling the all various taxes and central control for all these.

    Q12- What is the relevance of BRICS in today with Trade WAR driven World?
    Ans- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa(BRICS) meet is totally centered at the trade war resulted from US-China recent tariffs on each others. While US is showing protectionism, all these nations have come together to discuss the overall trade agreement to abolish the effect of US’s effects of current policy. As Both the India and China are the benefactors from US and suddenly the export/imports of products chain can’t be broken. Norms also to be discussed around investments.

    Q13- Is BRICS helpful for India?
    Ans- Definitely, BRICS group of big and emerging nations joining hands to get trade war situations smooth, India’s part in it is to take best trade agreement with the member nations and making its position in trade more strong and less dependent on US. While on the phase of His journey PM Modi already went through Rawanda, Uganda and South Africa. Maintaining the relations.

    Q14- Why it is said that the military Judicial Nexus is driving the civilian Agenda?

    Q15- What exactly is the modes operandi of electoral bonds?
    Ans- The most powerful drawback that blast fear in me that how a foreign company through its subsidiary company in India can also sweet pockets of politicians to reform the elections activities as per their choice/money. While all the electoral bonds are done through the customers’s bank account whose KYC is done so I think they can track back if something seems fishy about the donor. And Also the political party also receiving the money in their bank accounts whose KYC is done So it can also be tracked down how much amount is generated by a political party. With more reforms in rules electoral bonds can be blessing, but I don’t think we need these electoral bonds now.
