The existential crisis in Why Cheat India is not limited to its title. The biggest problem with Why Cheat India is that it cannot decide whether to project its protagonist as a hero or a villain. Why Cheat India is as confused as its protagonist. There’s a Breaking Bad-style scene featuring a room filled with cash from floor to ceiling and the film even quotes astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson on the compelling reason that makes students cheat. Why Cheat India ends with some powerful statistics — ranging from how only seven per cent of Indian college graduates are employable to the business of coaching institutes, at last count, being worth a staggering Rs 45,000 crore.

By agreeing to buy more goods from the US, China may just shift its trade surplus toward other trading partners, said Tom Orlik, the chief economist for Bloomberg Economics. Additionally, the types of products that China offers to buy more of could matter more than the overall target for a dollar amount, Orlik said. “Over the years, China has used the offer of purchasing more technologies with national security applications as a gambit in trade negotiations,” said Orlik. There’s no clear sign that such an offer would now have a greater chance of success or even if it is practically feasible. The office of the US Trade Representative didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

London: BlackRock and Goldman Sachs Asset Management both plan to temporarily move some British-based fund managers to New York in the event of a no-deal Brexit, two sources told Reuters. The US makes sense as a temporary base for Goldman and BlackRock as Europe has cooperation agreements with U.S. regulators, so managers could handle European clients’ accounts from there until ESMA and the FCA have theirs. If not, BlackRock will move around 10 equity portfolio managers to New York, one source said, adding they would later move to the euro zone. It is not known whether other big US asset managers are drawing up similar plans and State Street, Fidelity Investments and Northern Trust all declined to comment. Although London-based asset managers already operate funds listed in Luxembourg and Dublin, holding more than a trillion euros of assets for customers across the bloc, they would not be able to continue operating as they do now post-Brexit.

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is expected back in Madrid on Tuesday to attend a trial for tax evasion in which Spanish prosecutors are asking for a 23-month prison sentence and a fine. The Portuguese striker, who left Real Madrid for Juventus last July, is expected to plead guilty after he agreed a settlement worth 18.8 million euros with Spanish tax authorities last summer. That fine, expected to be confirmed on Tuesday, is part of the total agreed in the earlier settlement, judicial sources said. Ronaldo, 33, who has helped take Juventus to the top of Italian football's Serie A, will have to travel to Madrid immediately after playing for Juve against Chievo on Monday. The trial was initially expected to take place on Monday but the prosecutor's office said the date was now set for Tuesday.
Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora Friday lamented that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) were being treated like a "football" by parties suffering electoral losses, and said the voting equipment was foolproof as far as fears of manipulation were concerned. In the recent assembly polls in five states, 1.76 lakh EVMs were installed out of which only six reported malfunction. "It is my request to all, please do not make EVMs a football," Arora said. He said VVPATs were introduced to address the misgivings that people might have about EVMs. The BJP requested that complaints of anomalies in electoral rolls be seriously looked into and resolved.
As part of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between AAI and SAAB India, the airports would run a pilot deployment of a Remote ATC Tower system where air traffic controllers and the control tower would be replaced by a bank of 16 high-definition, remotely operated, infrared cameras. The remote ATC works through the network of high-definition, infrared cameras. All one needs is connectivity to get a remote ATC system activated. Remote ATC towers are at present being used at several airports including in Sweden and the U.K. In London City, the remote tower concept was brought in due to space limitations.

Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar and former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Gegong Apang, who quit the BJP a few days ago, too arrived in Kolkata by evening. The city is covered with Trinamool’s flags and billboards featuring Ms. Banerjee and her nephew Abhisekh Banerjee, MP. Exactly 10 months ago, on March 19, 2018, Ms. Banerjee met Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao to nurture the idea of an “anti-Congress, anti-BJP” federal front. Ms. Banerjee has indicated that she is not too keen on pushing the idea of an anti-Congress platform any more. Banerjee perhaps realised that she may get marginalised,” the Congress leader close to Ms. Banerjee said.

With two and a half months to go for the end of this financial year, the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Grameen) scheme to provide housing for the rural poor has achieved only 66% of its target to complete one crore houses. The Ministry of Rural Development still hopes to advance further towards the goal by the deadline of March-end, given that about 15 lakh homes have reached the late stages of construction with roofs ready to be added. Another 11 lakh homes have reached the lintel level, and may be completed in the next few months even if they do not meet the March 31 deadline. In a letter to States dated January 4, the Ministry pointed out that only 12% of the 4.72 lakh identified landless beneficiaries had been provided land for house construction. West Bengal had not allotted land for even a single one of its 34,884 landless beneficiaries.
The Meghalaya government on Friday issued a modified order for allowing transportation of coal that “originated outside the State”. This followed an alleged misinterpretation of the Supreme Court’s January 15 order by Customs officials in Meghalaya, following which 28 coal trucks from Bhutan were prevented from delivering the consignment to Bangladesh. The apex court had through the order banned the transportation of extracted coal from Meghalaya’s illegal rat-holes till February 19. Bhutan exports coal to Bangladesh via India. “We have been told that the coal trucks from Bhutan will be allowed to move into Bangladesh on Saturday,” Dolly Khonglah, secretary of Meghalaya International Exporters’ Chamber of Commerce, said.
