NEW DELHI—Angry Indian farmers protested in and around the capital over the weekend, worried that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to deregulate agricultural markets will leave them without a safety net. Farmers from northern India used tractors and motorcycles to block highways on the fringes of New Delhi, creating traffic jams and forcing people to drive around the protest. Authorities have offered to create a place for the protesters to demonstrate that won’t lead to gridlock, but they have declined.

As the world inches towards 1.5 million Covid-19 deaths, the U.S. continues to lead the toll, passing 13 million confirmed cases on Saturday. Public health officials in Santa Clara County, California, followed San Francisco and Los Angeles on Saturday in announcing stricter stay-at-home rules. Meanwhile the first doses of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine are on the move to the U.S. from Belgium, a source familiar with the planning told NBC News. That comes as a panel of U.S. advisers are set to meet early next week to vote on how scarce, initial supplies of the vaccine will be allocated.

Indian farmers defiant against reform as Modi tries to calm anger

Slideshow ( 2 images )The government on Saturday invited farmers’ union leaders for talks on new legislation to deregulate agricultural but that has not calmed farmers’ anger over what many see “anti-farm laws”, and their action appeared to be spreading. “From these reforms, farmers will get new rights and opportunities,” he said in his monthly radio address. [L1N2ID09V]But instead farmers from the neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh joined in over the weekend, blocking roads to the east of the capital. Media reported protests by farmers in the southern states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala on Saturday. Prices of fresh produce prices at wholesale markets in the city began to tick up and commuters have faced travel disruption.

In a statement on Sunday, an umbrella group representing different farmers’ unions slammed the government for saying it would engage in talks with the farmers if they moved their protest off the roads into a designated stadium site. “The government, if serious about addressing the demands of farmers, should stop laying down any conditions and should come straight out with the solution it is offering,” the statement said. Modi sought to allay farmer concerns during his monthly radio address, saying “farmers will get new rights and opportunities” through these laws. “Farmers are not fools who would not understand what is in their interest,” said Yogendra Yadav, president of Swaraj India - an opposition party. The farmers’ unions called on farmers in other states to expand the protests from Tuesday, while urging farmers in neighbouring states and others to join demonstrations in Delhi.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Some of the world’s leading long-distance runners participated in a half-marathon in New Delhi on Sunday, even as India’s capital grapples with a surge in COVID-19 cases and air pollution that has recently been among the world’s worst. Although air quality was poor on Sunday, the runners got a bit of a reprieve, as pollution levels in the capital were dramatically better than those of recent weeks. New Delhi’s Air Quality Index was at 252 on a scale of 500, registering at “poor” levels, according to the Central Pollution Control Board. Defending champions from Ethiopia, Andamlak Belihu and Tsehay Gemechu, were among the elite athletes running the 21-kilometre (13.1 mile) race. “The Airtel Delhi Half Marathon will follow the highest level of safety standards, with bio-secure zones to ensure a COVID free race for the elite runners,” the organisers had said in a press statement earlier.

Increased demand for air travel and hotel stays by small business owners like Mehra, accompanied by a rise in rural incomes and spending after two good monsoons, is helping the pandemic-hit Indian economy slowly recover. “Demand from large corporates and international travel will take longer to recover. India’s biggest carrier IndiGo and rival Vistara are seeing an uptick in business travel but to a much smaller extent than before. Lack of adequate and safe public transport in small towns and villages has also pushed up demand for cars and motorcycles. “While Bharat (rural India) is leading India in terms of a recovery, it cannot carry India,” he said, adding that steady, long-term demand will depend on improving economic factors, growing incomes and a rebound in urban markets.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India deployed hundreds of police and paramilitary forces at a New Delhi border on Saturday as thousands of farmers from neighbouring states blocked major roads into the capital, in protest against recent agricultural deregulation. Both security forces and farmers have installed barricades to prevent a repeat of Friday’s clashes. We want a special parliament session for withdrawal of the new farm laws,” Singh said, adding he hopes farmers from other states will join the protests to pressure on the government. “Our slogan was, ‘Hail the Soldier, Hail the Farmer,’ but today PM Modi’s arrogance made the soldier stand against the farmer. The government says there is no plan to eliminate wholesale markets and that farmers have the choice of buyers.

This month, Shunty’s team has been flooded with calls from families of those dying at home after quarantining for COVID-19. Shunty’s group has ferried up to 25 such bodies a day this month, compared to about three earlier. “Corona has gone out of control in Delhi,” said Shunty, who founded the non-governmental organisation more than 25 years ago. The Delhi government does not regularly release data on home isolation deaths and did not respond to a request for comment. That could encourage more people to demand hospitalisation, unlike Rajen Mehta’s father, whose last rituals were done by Shunty’s team on Thursday.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - New Delhi police agreed to let thousands of Indian farmers stage a peaceful protest inside the capital on Friday after initially blocking demonstrators on the outskirts and firing tear gas and water cannon at them. Clashes ensued, with police unleashing tear gas and water cannon to push back the farmers. It hopes to bring new investment to the farm sector and fix the supply chains that lose one-fourth of India’s produce to wastage. “The new laws holds the promise of bringing revolutionary change to farmers’ lives,” Farm Minister Narendra Singh Tomar told Reuters affiliate ANI. The farm sector contributes nearly 15% of India’s $2.9 trillion economy and employs around half its 1.3 billion people.

India’s Economy Shrinks Sharply as Covid-19 Slams Small Businesses

NEW DELHI — China has come roaring back from the devastation of Covid-19, and the United States, Europe and Japan are finding their feet. But the hundreds of millions of laborers and shopkeepers who keep India’s economy running still can’t find relief. India’s economy shrank 7.5 percent in the three months that ended in September compared with a year earlier, government figures showed on Friday. The new figures firmly ensconced India’s position among the world’s worst-performing major economies, despite expansive government spending designed to rescue the thousands of small businesses severely battered by its long, hastily imposed lockdown. He needs payments from customers to make up for his manufacturing costs, but retailers who can’t move his wares still owe him more than $50,000.

A health worker takes a swab sample from a man for coronavirus testing, near Bal Bhawan ITO, in New Delhi, India. The Indian economy shrank for the second straight quarter through September, although it showed signs of a pick-up after the easing of pandemic restrictions that triggered a record contraction in the previous quarter. Annual growth of 3.4% in farm sector and 0.6% in manufacturing during September quarter raised hopes of an early recovery as the government gears up to distribute coranavirus vaccines to a country with about 1.4 billion people. Economists have marginally raised growth forecasts this month after a pick-up in consumer demand for autos, non-durables and rail freight during the festival season. India's tally of COVID-19 infections has crossed 9.3 million to stand as the world's second highest after the United States, with 135,715 deaths in the south Asian nation.

She considered New Jersey, but wanted to stay closer to family and friends in New York. Email: thehunt@nytimes.com]So she downsized her expectations and focused on a more realistic goal: a one-bedroom of 650 square feet. Ms. Pal found plenty of options in boutique condominium buildings in Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant, many of them four-story walk-ups with eight units. “If you come in early enough, you can choose front-facing, back-facing, second floor, first floor,” Ms. Juan said.

Like O’Dell, however, several retail investors who had money on the line during prior bitcoin whipsaws expressed the same emotion about having divested: relief. Unlike stocks or bonds, where business trends or central bank decisions can affect prices, crypto values remain an enigma. Many crypto experts say, though, that institutional investors have played a bigger role than this year than in the past.

Amazon had complained to stock exchanges, accusing Future of misleading public by making incorrect market disclosures, allegations the Indian group denies. The NSE and Future Retail did not respond to requests for comment. NSE in e-mails at least twice asked Future Retail to provide a copy of the arbitration order to vet the disclosures, and also why it should not be disclosed as material price-sensitive information, emails between Oct. 27 and Oct. 30 showed.

India bans 43 more mobile apps as it takes on China
  + stars: | 2020-11-25 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India banned 43 mobile apps on Tuesday, including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s e-commerce app Aliexpress, in a new wave of web sanctions targeted at China after the neighbours’ months-long standoff on their rugged Himalayan border. The 43 mostly Chinese-origin applications, which also include a few dating apps, threaten the “sovereignty and integrity of India”, the technology ministry said in a statement. India has previously banned more than 170 apps, saying they collect and share users’ data and could pose a threat to the state. Its subsidiary UC Web laid off staff in India earlier this year after New Delhi first banned 59 Chinese-origin mobile apps that included UC Web’s browser and two other products. India’s slew of app bans has also jolted the ambitions of Chinese tech titans such as Bytedance and Tencent in the South Asian country, which is trying to reduce Beijing’s influence on its burgeoning internet economy.

SINGAPORE — India is unlikely to join the world's largest free trade bloc anytime soon as New Delhi remains more inclined toward bilateral agreements, an economist told CNBC. Fifteen Asia-Pacific countries signed the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) earlier this month — those countries combined represent about 30% of the global economy. Other member countries have said the door remains open for India to rejoin. The agreement is expected to eliminate most tariffs on traded goods, strengthen supply-chain linkages in the region, and includes standardized rules for investments into member countries. Rules of origin refer to the criteria that helps determine the country or source of where the product originated from.
