There is some basis to the fact that the airlines need to actually be much, much more careful. In fact, not just one or two airlines, pretty much all of them. This actually Sonia is an order. It was passed by the aviation regulator, the Director general of Civil Aviation today. This comes on the back of several instances being reported of engineering lapses on various airlines, which resulted, for example, in precautionary landings in Karachi of two airlines. But let's telly what exactly this particular order says now the says that there have been reports of increasing engineering related occurrences in scheduled airlines in recent times, which is why they conducted spot cheques Now. One of these spot cheques indicated an improper identification of causes of reported defects. That's one of the problems and other problem is airlines flying with an M E l or minimum working equipment on board Now. This is important It's not illegal for an airline to actually do this, but I do because they are redundant systems. So if one fails, there's always another one. But I did. You should be having everything working and the says, Look, that's what you need to do. Non ability, availability of required certifying staff? No, This is also an important point, which essentially means this where an aircraft is operating at a certain base or it is operating during transit. There have to be engineers of a particular standard and seniority who clear flights for operations. Airlines can actually make do on a one off clearance for someone junior. The the regulator says. Don't do that at all and please implement these orders by the 28th of July. So one way, the other very serious guidelines for our thanks vision. So hopefully with aviation regulator, the aviation minister stepping in, the airlines are gonna take this seriously. Thanks so much For those details.

Thinking an innovative way to help people who come to hospital how to solve tried to improve the rules in insurance department to help people. Hospitals have appealed to the government not to impose such attacks. This is the additional cost for the patients. As a hospital, we have to collect this additional amount from the patient and deposited the government so it will be the additional cost for the patients Various forums were taking with the government's to remove this additional levy right now and then, we hope that it will be reversed shortly. The government should consider to keep these type of essential things which are like health. And if we are being from a pocket and we are paying other taxes, indirect taxes, I think such type of services would be exempted. There could be other areas like, you know, cigarettes or other places where they could, or or on they could take those money or from liquor somewhere other divisions, and they could compensate for the shortfall, not from hospital beds. 5%. GST will now be levied on this free package, but unbranded and many such items where. JST hi essential commodities, not various staples.

The government in the parliament said that the outflow of foreign funds and global factors such as the war in Ukraine are dragging the rupee down. It said that the Reserve Bank is regularly monitoring the market and it's intervening to control the rupee slump. But Rupee still continuing, it's free fall even though the Reserve Bank is introducing policies even though it's selling dollars to increase its supply to bring down the dollars rate. This is in fact led to our forex reserves going down to a 15 month low, down by 8% in just the last six months. But the government says that it's not all bad news. While rupee depreciated against dollar, it has appreciated against the pound, yen and euro rupees 8% down against the dollar just this year. But it's 11% up against yen, around 5% up against found and euro, so it might be a good idea to travel to Europe or Japan at this time. But, jokes aside, it's still a bad news for the economy at large. Most of our imports are paid for in dollars and more expensive. Our imports could further increase inflation for all of us. But there's also some good news today. Stock markets search to their one month high be gained over 1.4%. Sensex gained 760 points ended at 54,005. 21 nifty gained 2. 29 points to end at 16,002. 78 Indian markets searched following their global peers of 1% rise in US details.
