Fake currency, terror financing and black money are three evils and are like 'Jarasandha' (an antagonist in Mahabharat) and should be cut into pieces, the Centre told the Supreme Court on Monday while opposing the pleas challenging the 2016 demonetisation exercise.

How India trying to curb gold smuggling

Indias trade ministry is discussing a reduction in import taxes on gold to rein in illegal shipments, according to people familiar with the matter.The worlds second-largest consumer of the precious metal, almost all of which is purchased from abroad, has asked the Finance Ministry to consider reducing the tariff to about 10% from 12.5%, two of the people said, asking not to be identified as the deliberations are private. Its as yet unclear if the recommendation will be accepted and a decision could be announced at or before the budget presentation due early next year, they added.The matter presents a dilemma for Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who needs to keep imports low to contain a widening trade deficit, but smuggling robs the government of much-needed revenue. Her administration had raised the tariffs in July, following which the nations purchases tumbled.96008423A Finance Ministry spokesperson declined to comment and a Commerce Ministry representative didnt respond to email and text message seeking comment.Indias gold imports fell 23% in July-September from the same period a year ago, according to World Gold Council data, following the tariff increase.The bullion industry is seeking a reversal of the tax increase made in July and a reduction in the goods and services tax to 1.25% from the current 3%, according to the All India Gem and Jewellery Domestic Council. The higher import tax is creating problems in the domestic industry as it increases unofficial goods coming in and benefits the illegal trade, said Ashish Pethe, chairman of the Mumbai-based trade group. Our long-term suggestion is that the duty should be anywhere between 4%-6%, where the government will also get a good enough revenue and illicit trade will also not be there.

This allows the Federal Reserve to reduce rate increases with the aim of reducing inflation by slowing the economy and lowering the price of stocks and other investments. But according to a labor market report released Friday, workers' wages increased by 5.1% last month compared to a year earlier. That's an increase from the 4.9% gain in October and easily exceeds economists' predictions for a recession. Last month, American businesses added 263,000 new jobs. More than 200,000 were forecast by economists, and the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7%. With a higher percentage of people either not working or looking for work than before the pandemic, many Americans are also outright unemployed, which could put more pressure on employers to raise wages.

CHENNAI : Economic experts anticipate the RBI Monetary Policy Committee to hike the repo rate by 25-35 basis points with industry lobby body ASSOCHAM also calling for the RBI to do the same. It will also be interesting to see whether there will be unanimity amongst the members of the MPC on the decisions taken at the ensuing meeting. Following the MPC meeting, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das is anticipated to discuss the letter the bank sent to the federal government outlining the causes of the inflation issue and the efforts being taken to address it. On November 3, the MPC convened to examine what it would convey to the central government regarding the reasons why it was unable to control inflation. According to Section 45ZN of the RBI Act, when the central bank misses the inflation target, it must send a report to the central government outlining the reasons why, the corrective actions it proposes to take, and an estimation of the time frame in which the inflation target will be met following prompt implementation of the suggested corrective actions. Despite the law's prohibition, the abovementioned MPC meeting's proceedings have not been made public. According to section 45ZK, the RBI is required to publish the decision made by the MPC following each meeting.
