Union Budget 2020: At a time when poverty, hunger and income inequality are growing in 22 to 25 states and UTs, out of 28 that the Niti Aayog mapped in 2018 and 2019, disinvesting stakes in CPSEs to meet budget expenditure may not be the wisest thing to do

Part II of this two-part series looks at another area of off-budget financing that has escaped CAG's attention - 'strategic disinvestment' in CPSEs the tabs for which are picked by other CPSEs.

Available information on the influx of \"illegal migrants\" doesn't warrant a nation-wide NPR-NRIC. The CAA 2019 was necessitated by the introduction of \"illegal migrant\" in Citizenship Act of 1955 during the Vajpayee regime in 2003 but it introduced another problem - religion-based citizenship - which has sparked a nation-wide strife

Forget GDP growth rate for the moment. Niti Aayog's SDG Index 2019, released on December 27, 2019, says that more Indians have fallen into poverty, hunger and income inequality in the past two years. This is after a remarkable reduction in poverty between 2005-06 and 2015-16
