Ahmedabad: To a great relief of the farmers, monsoon has set in over Gujarat, according to the Indian
Meteorological Department (IMD). The monsoon usually hits this part of India's western coast around
June 15, but got delayed this year. "Monsoon had touched Veraval coast around June 17, but after that
it had been static. Now, the South-West monsoon has advanced to some more parts of the state. In
next few days it is likely to cover the entire state," IMD regional additional director Manorama Mohanti
said. Heavy to very heavy rains could occur at isolated places over Gujarat and Saurasthra in the next
36 hours. Since yesterday morning, the top rainfall-
recording districts of the state were Vadodara (70 mm),
Bhavnagar (45.8 mm), Vallabh Vidya Nagar(47 mm),
Amreli (39.4 mm) and Ahmedabad (33.6 mm).The IMD

          RAINS DRENCH SOUTH GUJARAT

SURAT: South Gujarat got respite from heat as heavy
rains across the region brought down mercury by 4-5
degrees Celsius on Thursday. Navsari town recorded

                             GUJARAT TO HOST TWO TOURISM EVENTS

Ahmedabad: August and September will be busy month for the Tourist department. Two back to back
tourism event have been organized by the department.The first in the Saputara Monsoon Festival to be
held from August 4 to September 1. The department plans to showcase this getaway monsoon
destination to the nearby cities like Nagpur, Pune, Mumbai, Nasik in Maharashtra. Maharashtra is seen
as the right target segment for this picturesque destination. The Saputara Monsoon Festival will be a
month long event where variety of activities will be on offer for the tourists. Some of the events to be
held as a part of the festival include water sports, adventurous activities, laser show, photography
exhibition, heritage walk, cultural evenings, food festival, contests, etc. The idea is to keep the tourists

would be the Tarnetar Fair to be held from September 19 to September 21. Tarnetar Fair is one of the
most happening events in Gujarat and is held at the Temple of Shiva or Trinetreshwar (three-eyed
god), popularly known as Tarnetar. Popular belief associates the village with the Swayamwar
(marriage) of Draupadi after Arjun performed the Mastsyavedh, an unparalleled feat of archery.
Villagers from all over the state, dressed in their brilliant traditional costumes and exquisite jewellery,
flock to Tarnetar. The Tarnetar Mela covers a large part of the Tarnetar village with a huge number of
stalls put up selling beautiful local handicrafts unavailable elsewhere along with ethnic jewellery,
statues of deities and traditional mirror work attires.
                GUJCOST TO ESTABLISH 2000 SCIENCE CLUBS ACROSS GUJARAT

AHMEDABAD: Gujarat Council on Science & Technology (GUJCOST), working under the state
government's department of science and technology, is all set to establish a total of 2,000 science clubs
in schools across the state to promote scientific thinking among the children and the community
members.At the moment, the state has 1,0000 clubs already that were set up during 2010 and 2011.
During this year, the council will add another 1000 new science clubs preferably in the rural areas."The
science clubs have a specific objectives as it aims to explain, exhibit and demonstrate scientific
activities and to induct observational, logical and analytical approach among school students. More
over, the activities and engagement in the science club will lead to creat a scientific attitude among the
young students which can incpire and encourage the students for their life-long learning," said a
GUJCOST official.The school science clubs are being established by the Community Science Centers
located at each of the districts. GUJCOST has designed and developed an activity kit for the science club
which can be used by the club members to understand the science and to feel its excitement.

                    AHMEDABAD’S JUNE GOLD IMPORT LOWEST IN 39 MONTHS




The glittering prices of gold have only marred its demand. Gold import in Ahmedabad during June was a
mere 1.83 tonnes, which is the lowest in the last 39 months. Even the second quarter of the fiscal saw a total
import of 24 tonne, which is the lowest Q2 import in the last 8 years. Various factors, including the yellow
metal touching a new peak of Rs30,000 per 10 gram, are believed to be the reasons for the plummeting import
and demand of gold in Gujarat, believe bullion traders and analysts. GSEC Ltd, which handles the Air Cargo
Complex of Ahmedabad, released the gold import data which reveals the average monthly import –almost
always in double digits- was less than 2 tonne in June. The average monthly gold import at Ahmedabad
airport in 2008-09 was around 13 tonne, 18 tonne in 2009-10, 22 in 2010-11 and in 2011-12 it was 18.66 tonne.
Against these figures, the average monthly gold import in the April-June 2012 quarter is a low 7.98 tonne.
There are various factors which have brought down the import of the yellow metal to such a low, said bullion
trader and analyst. Usually the demand in June and July is very low, but in June 2012, it was significantly
lower than the average. It is unusual to see such a fall in demand even during the slack period. At present,
jewellers do not have any major business. Whatever demand they have witnessed is from customers selling
old jewellery and replacing it with new. Demand for wedding jewellery was also extremely low during this
period.

                              SMOKING IS IT INJURIOUS TO HEALTH ?



NATIONAL UPDATE :

                   GOVT TO GIVE FREE MEDICINE TO HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS

MUMBAI: Govt has put in place a $5.4 billion policy to provide free medicine to its people, a decision
that could change the lives of hundreds of millions, but a ban on branded drugs stands to cut Big
Pharma out of the windfall. From city hospitals to tiny rural clinics, India's public doctors will soon be
able to prescribe free generic drugs to all comers, vastly expanding access to medicine in a country
where public spending on health was just $4.50 per person last year. The plan was quietly adopted last
year but not publicised. Initial funding has been allocated in recent weeks, officials said.Under the plan,
doctors will be limited to a generics-only drug list and face punishment for prescribing branded
medicines, a major disadvantage for pharmaceutical giants in one of the world's fastest-growing drug
markets. But the initiative would overhaul a system where healthcare is often a luxury and private
clinics account for four times as much spending as state hospitals, despite 40 percent of the people
living below the poverty line, or $1.25 a day or less. Within five years, up to half of India's 1.2 billion
people are likely to take advantage of the scheme, the government says. Others are likely to continue
visiting private hospitals and clinics, where the scheme will not operate. "The policy of the government
is to promote greater and rational use of generic medicines that are of standard quality," said L.C.
Goyal, additional secretary at the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and a key proponent of the
policy. Global drugmakers like Pfizer (PFE N), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.L) and Merck (MRK.N) will be hit.
They spend billions of dollars a year researching new treatments and target huge growth for branded
medicine in emerging economies such as India, where generics account for around 90 percent of drug
sales by value, far more than in developed countries.US-based Abbott Laboratories (ABT.N), which
bought an Indian generics maker in 2010, is the biggest seller of drugs, both branded and generic, in
India, followed by GlaxoSmithKline.

INDIA ASKS STATE BANKS TO CUT HIGH-COST DEPOSITS

The Indian government has asked state-run banks to reduce their
reliance on high-cost bulk deposits and certificates of deposits (CDs), forcing lenders to find alternate
sources of funding and drawing complaints from some. A letter sent to state banks and obtained by
Reuters asks them to reduce bulk deposits to 10 percent of the total and CDs to 5 percent by
September. Many state banks source roughly 20 to 30 percent of their deposits through bulk deposits
and CDs, according to data included in the letter. The initiative is intended to improve asset-liability
management and reduce reliance on high-cost funds, but some bank executives said it was
unnecessary meddling that could crimp lending. "This is total interference in the working of banks,"
said one senior executive at a state bank who had received the letter dated July 2, but declined to be
identified because the matter is not public. The government defines bulk deposits as those with short
terms and rates that are higher than retail deposit rates. State lenders, led by State Bank of India
(SBI), account for roughly 70 percent of banking business in India. Banks in India hold a combined 4
trillion rupees ($73.7 billion) of CDs, which make up about 6.5 percent of deposits. At one small state
lender, Punjab and Sind Bank, bulk deposits and CDs account for 60 percent of total deposits, the letter
to state bank CEOs said. At SBI and its associate banks the total is just 13 percent, while at Andhra
Bank the total is 25 percent.
