Arun Jaitley calls for amendments in graft law, says it's anarchic and hurts decision makingUnion Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday called for amendments in the Prevention of Corruption Act -- a graft law that the Minister described as anarchic and one of the most badly drafted pieces of legislations. His statement came weeks after the Pune police on June 21 arrested the entire top management of the state-run Bank of Maharashtra for a loan of Rs 94.5 crore to the scam-tainted developer DSK Group allegedly in violation of its lending rules. Coming down heavily on the Pune Police for the arrest, the Minister said that nobody should overlook the federal structure of the nation. Jaitley further said that if the country wants an effective decision making process, it needs to put this entire relationship between investigation, who to investigate, when to investigate, what constitutes a crime, really in its place.NCLT verdict in Tata-Mistry case to be pronounced on July 9The Mumbai bench of NCLT (National Company Law Tribunal) on Wednesday deferred its judgement on ousted Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry's petitions against the Tata Group.

In absolute numbers, the paddy MSP hike by Rs 200/quintal to Rs 1,750 for this year is a record but not in percentage terms, said agriculture expert Ashok Gulati . Gulati cautioned that the sharp rise in cotton and rice MSP will hit exports badly and lead to increase in government procurement. Merkel warns Trump against trade war  German Chancellor Angela Merkel today warned US President Donald Trump against unleashing an all-out trade war after he threatened to impose steep tariffs on cars from the European Union.

Trump charged that Europe is \"possibly as bad as China\" on trade, as he reiterated that he is mulling import taxes of 20 percent on EU cars. The EU has slapped tariffs on iconic US products including bourbon, jeans and Harley-Davidson motorcycles, as a symbolic tit-for-tat response to the metals duties.FM to meet heads of banks today to discuss NPA resolution structure  Finance Minister Piyush Goyal will meet heads of banks today to discuss an inter-lender structure suggested under the 'Project Sashakat' that intends to fastrack resolution of stressed assets in the banking system.
