US Admiral warns against sanctioning India over Russia defence purchase
US, Apr 19 (Agencies): A top US admiral has warned Congress against imposing any sanctions on countries like India and Indonesia for purchasing defence equipment from Russia, saying any such move would pose a concern for America's defence ties in the Indo-Pacific and increase its partners' dependence on Moscow.

Monsoon 2018 will be normal, expect rainfall at 97% of average: Met Department
NEW DELHI, Apr 16 (Agencies): India is likely to receive average monsoon rains in 2018, the weather office said, raising the possibility of higher farm and economic growth in Asia`s third-biggest economy, where half of the farmland lacks irrigation.

India`s weather office defines average, or normal, rain...

NEW DELHI, Apr 13 (Agencies): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has urged the GST Council to grant exemption to all ingredients like ghee, edible oil and spices, for preparing "langar" (community kitchen) food served by gurudwaras.
