merry while batting on a flat deck as the Indian bowlers continued to struggled Related News When Virat Kohli decided to bowl first after winning the toss at The Kennington Oval he would have hoped to keep Pakistan under check and restrict them to a score below 300 However things did not go according to plan as the opposition batsman dominated the Indian bowlers from the word -go With a newly laid fresh pitch on offer which was quite hard and had true bounce it helped the Pakistan batsman gauge the pace of the wicket and play offensive strokes from the start Traditionally Oval offers the best batting pitch in England and staying put with its reputation it was another belter of a wicket where batsmen made merry and the bowlers were bullied With no assistance to the pacers from the beginning the opening batsman got off to a good start Together the duo of Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali forged their second successive 100-run stand and dominated the Indian bowlers Azhar Ali took a special liking to R Ashwin whom he milked for runs while Ravindra Jadeja was also taken to the cleaners In his spell of ten overs Ashwin gave away as many as70 runs Meanwhile in their partnership of 128 the duo (Zaman and Ali) made use of the true bounce on offer and cut pulled and drove with panache Jasprit Bumrah was another Indian bowler who proved ineffective as the batsmen took out 68 runs in his nine overs However the batsmen who followed the openers also got in quickly and did not find it hard to get going Apart from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya all the other bowlers went for more than seven runs per over None of them was allowed to settle in as the opposition batsmen made good use of the pace on offer Towards the end of the innings the Indian bowlers might have hoped for some reverse swing to keep the batsmen in check but that too was nullifiedbecause the wicket at the Oval is a new one and the outfield too is lush green At the end of innings on a flat batting wicket Pakistan notched up 338 runs at the end of 50 overs which has put them in the driving seat For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related

Jaypee Group the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed the commissioner of the Municipal Corporation and chairman of the Jaypee garbage processing plant to appear in person before the tribunal on July 11 The MC counsel on Wednesday placed before the Tribunal that Jaypee had not been processing garbage for the last three months even after the previous directions of the tribunal The counsel placed before the Tribunal a videography on how the plant authorities were not taking the garbage for processing due to which local residents were suffering The counsel for the Jaypee plant however told NGT that they were ready to run the plant even without a tipping fee and had also given a proposal to set up a compost plant But the House did not agree and decided to terminate the contract After hearing both sides the tribunal asked MC Commissioner Baldeo Purushartha and Jaypee plant Chairman Manoj Gaur to appear before the NGT in person during the next hearing “I have been told that other than personal appearance the tribunal has directed the Jaypee group to process the entire garbage until this issue is resolved so that it is not dumped at the dumping ground causing problems to people” said Mayor Asha Jaswal The MC had expected to get relief on Wednesday thinking that now it would be easier for them to get the land vacated from Jaypee and bring in a new company in its place However things have deferred for them “I know we had thought of getting relief but we can’t help it when the matter is in court” the mayor added According to an agreement with the Jaypee group and orders of the NGT during previous hearings Jaypee has to process the garbage However the civic body found that the company was processing only 10 per cent of the garbage and dumping the rest For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThe unanimous vote in favour of what is now popularly known as the GST Bill in the Lok Sabha on 8 August and earlier in Rajya Sabha on 3 August (in both the houses the AIADMK members decided to walk out instead of opposing the Bill as they possibly did not want to spoil the rare bonhomie among all other parties) has been hailed as a historic event in India’s parliamentary history by the prime minister and a host of cheerleaders Should the common man celebrate the occasion The answer is both ‘yes’ and ‘no’ Reuters Yes in so far as we as a nation inched forward towards an efficient indirect tax regime that promises to minimise the cascading effect of multiple taxes prevalent in the existing system Since all indirect taxes levied by the states and the Centre will be merged into one GST we would exactly know how much tax we would have to pay which at present is too complicated for a layperson to calculate But it is an emphatic ‘no’ if you go by the intent of the powers-that-be — both the state governments and the Union government — about the standard rate of the GST The Congress had insisted on a 18 percent cap to be incorporated in the Constitutional Amendment Bill The Central government held forth that a taxation structure could not be a part of the Constitution; it should be an executive decision to be taken together by the states and the Centre in the GST Council The Central government however left no one in doubt that the standard GST rate would be pegged higher than the 18 percent that the Congress was bargaining for; it was a surprise that the Congress gave in and extended support to the Bill after putting up resistance for over a year This decision had partly to do with its calculation that the NDA government would be able to muster a two-third majority in the Rajya Sabha even in the face of the Congress opposition (in the Lok Sabha the Congress support was not necessary as the government had the required numbers) The Congress leaders did not want to be seen ‘on the wrong side of history’ when amomentous reform measure was being undertaken in our Parliament That was enough evidence to show that the Congress was only playing small politics – not upholding a larger public cause – when it had decided to dig in on the 18 percent cap It wouldhave gone down in history as the upholder of the interest of the downtrodden if it would have stuck to the 18 percent demand and voted against the Bill – no matter that it would have found itself on the losing side The defeated Congress would have of course faced the taunts of the NDA leaders and a host of commentators who earn their living by sucking up to whoever is in power but that would have given it reasons to take pride in the fact that it has stood up for the Indian poor After all GST is a regressive tax It has a more pronounced effect on lower income earners – the tax consumes a higher proportion of their income compared to those earning large incomes It is regressive to the extent that the proportion of tax paid relative to income decreases as income increases That is why wealthier people spend a smaller portion of their income on goods and services compared to poorer people Income-tax is typically a progressive tax There is a minimum income level at which one does not have to pay taxes Everyone however is forced to pay taxes on goods and services no matter what their income is Income tax rates are graduated; the higher the income the higher the tax rate on that income Goods and services taxes stay the same no matter what the income is That is why GST rate is important from the point of view of the poor Think of people earning Rs 1 lakh or more a month; a tax of say 18 percent on the grocery bill may be bugger all for them But imagine someone with an income of Rs 6000 a month; an 18 percent tax on his grocery bill would gouge a huge hole in his monthly budget An Australian study that analysed the consequences of raising the GST rate from the current 10 percent to a proposed 15 percent had this to say: the move would have people in the lowest 20 percent household income bracket pay 67 percent more of their income in GST Compare this with just 29 percent more expense for the top 20 percent while the middle 20 percent would have to pay 42 percent more Sensitive to the condition of the poor the Australian government dropped the idea of raising the GST rate Fairness demands that the standard GST rate in India should be as low as possible If it is just 6 percent in Malaysia 7 percent in Thailand and Singapore 10 percent in Indonesia and Australia and just 17 percent even in a totalitarian country like China why can’t we set a maximum limit of 18 percent which itself is unconscionably high (Ideally the GST rate in India should be a world average of 12 percent) But look at what our Shylockian leaders are proposing The Times of India reported that the State finance ministers are clamouring for fixing the standard rate of the GST at 27 percent The Union Finance Minister lent credence to such a view when he said: the combined impact of central excise and value added tax is in the region of 27 percent In some states it is as high as 30 percent due to local surcharge While fixing the GST rate this fact must be kept in mind The finance minister was clearly economical with the truth His government’s chief economic adviser (CEA) Arvind Subramanian had earlier rubbished such talk of existing 27 percent tax as misleading “The combined tax of 27 percent is on manufacturing only You just can’t look at one component” and generalise it for the entire taxation structure he had said The CEA in his report had pegged the revenue neutral rate at 15-155 percent (it means that the states and the Centre will earn the same revenue they are earning today if the standard GST rate is fixed at 15 percent); the CEA in fact had warned that a standard rate “higher than 18-19 percent would stoke inflation” And he was candid enough to say that “at 27 percent it (the whole idea of the GST) is totally self-defeating” Clearly our politicians care two hoots for either equitable policy or economic rationale All they are concerned with is the maximisation of revenue even if it meant maximum burden on the poor who are least able to bear it The Congress had a chance to prove that its heart yearns for the downtrodden But it lost the chance in its chase for misplaced glory on the day of reckoning Hyderabad: A day after cross-country woman motorcycle rider Sana Iqbal died in a car crash her mother on Wednesday alleged that it was a "pre-planned murder" which the deceased’s husband was trying to portray as an accident The police to whom

and a cold-blooded murder" Iqbal’s mother alleged Deputy Commissioner of Police (Madhapur zone) Vishwa Prasad told PTI that as per the preliminary investigation it was a road accident and there was no suspicion over it "Her husband has also suffered severe injuries after their car hit the median and turned turtle" the DCP said He however said they will also verify the allegations of the Iqbal’s mother Inspector Goud said as per their investigation it was an accident He said Iqbal’s mother has complained to the police alleging it was a pre-planned murder and that they have told her and other family members to produce an evidence for it Last month Iqbal had sent a message from her phone to a few friends and family members purportedly saying her life was in danger and that her husband or in-laws should be held responsible in case she died of a heart attack or a brain stroke the police official said "There may have been some dispute between Iqbal and her husband The message was sent at that time and it has no connection with the road accident" Goud said The Hyderabad-based rider hit the headlines a few years ago when she undertook the solo motorcycle expedition across the country
