Hyderabad civic body to launch public bicycle sharing scheme

Hyderabad civic body to launch public bicycle sharing scheme


    Most newspapers lead with the much anticipated GST bill being tabled today in Rajya Sabha. The Hindu Business Line dubs it as the "Day of reckoning for GST". On the same story, the Pioneer has the unequivocal headline "GST bill set to get RS nod as most on board".
    Most newspapers have also covered Sonia Gandhi's roadshow in Varanasi yesterday. The Hindustan Times has published a picture of her with people thronging in the backdrop under the caption "Sonia takes campaign to Modi turf".
    "Mamata may opt for "Bango" is the Tribune headline. The paper reports that the West Bengal government has taken up a proposal to rename the state as "Bengal" in English and "Bango" or "Bangla" in Bengali.
    "Trial and error: High-speed Talgo train reaches Mumbai 3 hours late" reports the Business Standard about the third trial run of the much-hyped Talgo train on the Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani Express route. The paper adds that the delay in timing was due to heavy rains and point failure at Mathura.
    The Asian Age reports that "Hackers now demand ransom in Bitcoins". The paper adds that a Delhi based diagnostic centre recently approached CBI sleuths after their data was hacked into by a malicious computer program called "Ransomware". The hackers demanded to be paid in "bitcoins".
    And finally, some good news for handloom lovers ahead of the National Handloom Day. You can now "order your Kaancheepuram sarees online from weavers", reports the Hindu. 13 e-commerce entities have partnered with the government to market handloom products from specific handloom clusters across the country.
