THE CURIOUS CASE OF $160 BN FROM CHINA
The case of Xhoosan Maa and the projected $160 billion investment in Andhra Pradesh is getting curious. The announcements were made through a state government release. Few seem to know about his connection with the Chinese President. At least not the Chinese embassy and not even Chinese scholars whom The Indian Express contacted. Most surprising the projected sum is about double of the total Chinese outbound FDI in a year. So much for AP as a investment destination.
NO ABSENCE WITHOUT LEAVE HEREAFTER
Playing hooky from work even at the usually laid back Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation is being frowned upon. The EPFO has now sent a strict missive to all senior officials in the rank of Additional Provident Fund Commissioner directing them to seek permission for leave well in advance and not at the last minute. “Instances also exist where many officials are proceeding on leave without waiting for the approval,” the missive has said, adding that Central PF Commissioner KK Jalan has taken a serious view of them.
