#MintPlainFacts | Public mobility in the 6 largest state economies of India reached 79% of pre-#pandemic levels in October, the highest since March.

Kerala witnessed a muted recovery as it struggled with a persisting second wave of pandemic. Delhi, Maha also lag on this indicator. Image
#MintPlainFacts | A district-wise analysis of Google mobility shows that people in peninsular India are less likely to step out of homes as compared to other parts of the country. This phenomenon is most pronounced in Maharashtra and Kerala.

#USPresidentialElections2020 | The past few years have seen a slowing down of the growth of foreign students' flow into the United States. Any continuation of the negative sentiment will hurt US varsities. Image
India and China put together contribute 52 per cent of foreign students in the US and the new administration will not like to lose this advantage.

#MintPlainFacts | The biggest party in the ruling NDA now leans less on allies than before, given its own size in the Lok Sabha, and the growth in its social base.

#BiharElections2020 #ElectionsWithMint… Image
#MintPlainFacts | As many as 15 political parties left NDA between 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections. While this dented NDA’s strength in the LS towards the latter half of its term, BJP and NDA were able to recoup their losses and posted an even more impressive victory in 2019. Image
#MintPlainFacts | After 2019 elections, NDA has already lost 21 Lok Sabha seats, primarily due to the exit of the Shiv Sena.

It's possible that BJP may be able to attract new parties to join the alliance ahead of the next elections, just as it did ahead of the 2019 elections. Image

#MintPlainFacts | From high vacancies to shorter tenures to rising pendency, the Central Information Commission (CIC), India’s right-to-information (#RTI) appeals body faces a plethora of problems today.

Know more here:… Image
#MintPlainFacts | In the first nine years since it was formed in 2005, the CIC was headless for all of 10 days. Since 2014, it has gone headless for 464 days. In each top appointment since, there has been a break, with the longest being in 2014 and 2015. Image
#MintPlainFacts | Rising case pendency at the commission suggests that the appeals body is in urgent need of more commissioners.

In October 2017, the CIC had 24,287 appeals and complaints pending before it. In October 2020, this figure had increased by 52% to 36,894. Image
