" The previous UPA government "treated ayurveda industry as step child" but this government has taken steps to take it forward, Multani said, however, adding the high tax rate proposed under GST "will make Ayurvedic, Sidha and Unani medicines out of reach of common man and kill the system". He said if homeopathic products could be put under 5 per cent slab under GST, ayurvedic products should also be kept under the rate. Tijarawala said the world is now looking forward to Indian vedic knowledge of Ayurveda. It has created new potential of over Rs 1 lakh crore market for such natural and healthy products. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently even inaugurated Patanjali Research Institute (PRI) established with outlay of over Rs 250 crore for R&D in field of Ayurved, he added. "We have created a lead being followed by so many other companies.

There were even reports that Rajinikanth would meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi this week. (They met in Chennai during the 2014 election campaign but Rajinikanth did not endorse the BJP.) Rajinikanth’s speech comes at a time when there is a lot of uncertainty in Tamil Nadu politics, caused by the death of Jayalalithaa in December 2016 and Karunanidhi’s poor health. Jayalalithaa’s demise led to a split in the AIADMK, after her close aide VK Sasikala set eyes on the chief ministerial post. O Panneerselvam, the then interim CM, broke away from the party with a few MLAs, while the majority remained with Sasikala, who was jailed in a disproportionate assets case. Edappadi K Palaniswami was made chief minister. Now, Sasikala and her nephew, TTV Dhinakaran, who was running the party in her absence, have both been sidelined in the context of the latter’s arrest after he was accused of trying to bribe the Election Commission (EC) to get the party’s “two leavessymbol.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shrunk the world. Since his aggressive foreign policy moves require him to trot around the globe often and India has no dearth of situations demanding his personal attention, the PM knows how to turn the world into his office. He is scheduled to visit Europe and Israel next month. It's been three years as PM but he has not changed his travel style. Here's a glimpse: 45 countries and counting Modi has travelled approximately eight-and-a-half times around the globe since he took charge as prime minister in 2014.

China imports very few foreign films a year, and non-Hollywood movies make up an even smaller portion of that share. A wide range of reasons are being forwarded as explanations for the success of Dangal, which has grossed $124 million since its May 5 release in 9,000 theaters across China. On Friday, three weeks after its release, the movie finally slipped from the first to the second highest selling slot. The runner-up, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2, has brought in $98 million in China over the same period. Perhaps an important reason for Dangal's success is the celebrity status that Aamir Khan, the star and driving force behind the movie, has enjoyed in China for several years with his previous movies, PK and 3 Idiots, which did very well with Chinese movie-goers. Even before Dangal arrived on the Chinese scene, Amir had a bigger following on his Sina Weibo social media account than Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

India has opened its longest bridge in the country’s remote northeast to boost its defense infrastructure close to its contested border with China. The bridge is one of several projects that have been accelerated to facilitate movement of armed forces and artillery to Arunachal Pradesh state, which China claims as its own. The 9.15-kilometer Dhola Sadiya bridge over Brahmaputra river will give faster and easier access to the Himalayan state, which China refers to as South Tibet. The bridge has been designed to withstand the weight of 60-ton battle tanks. Inaugurating the project on a day that he completed three years in power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, however, focused not on the defense, but the economic benefits of a project that will also improve connectivity in a remote region where infrastructure has been poor. He said it would speed up development in both Arunachal Pradesh and Assam states and help tens of thousands of farmers gain access to new markets.

It’s an 8 on 10, Mr Modi! Dalal Street appears to have liked you this far. Last yearend, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi went to India’s financial capital, he dismayed Dalal Street. Just ahead of the Union Budget, he dropped a bombshell, asking market participants to pay more taxes to contribute to nation building. His government’s three years in power has been dotted with a fair share of shockwaves for investors; at times with confusing signals on the implementation of the general anti-avoidance rule or GAAR, changes in bilateral tax treaties with FII hubs, double taxation rules, talks of STT and last year’s demonetisation drive whose efficacy some Dalal Street veterans still dispute. But in toto, most market players are in agreement this government has been good for the market and the economy in its first three years in power. In the past three years, benchmark BSE Sensex has rallied 6,033.
