China hardening its stance on Doklam, Supreme Court bench to decide on right to privacy and Mayawati quitting the Rajya Sabha, are major stories in the papers today.
"India keeps all options open as China decries 'trespass'", is the lead in the Hindustan Times. The Times of India reports, "Sikkim stand-off could escalate into full - scale conflict, warns China".
"Supreme Court to decide your Right to Privacy today", leads the DNA, while the Pioneer uses a pun, "Right to privacy: SC to assess its Aadhaar". The Financial Express notes, "SC signals it could plump for privacy "observing, "In a Republic founded on a written Constitution, it is difficult to accept there is no fundamental right to privacy".

Sushma Swaraj responding to an ailing PoK youth who needs a liver transplant, also receives wide mention, "Sushma says PoK part of India, gives visa to patient", waiving the need for a nod from Pakistan, writes the Asian Age.
"Cess on cigarettes wipes out 48 thousand crore rupees from BSE in 1 day" notes the Pioneer. "ITC Smoke Chokes Markets" is how the Economic Times puts it, as the shares of India's largest cigarette maker faced the biggest intra-day fall in 25 years.
"Air India flies high on operational profit" states the Pioneer, proving wrong the sceptics who think the government has no option but to sell the national carrier.
"Star ratings for packaged food soon" with mandatory display of dietary ingredients on the front of packets, the Business Standard informs.
And finally, the Hindustan Times carries an interesting story of "A CISF constable who helps the lost and separated find their loved ones". Noorjahan Khatun, who has solved 100 cases of reuniting lost people in the New Delhi Metro, received the employee of the year award.
