Headley, who was made an approver in the Mum-bai 26/11 trial, made this claim on Wednes-day, when he was being cross-examined before Judge G.A. Sanap during a trial against one of the alleged plotters, Syed Za-biuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal. Headley surprised many when he claimed that he had not received any money from LeT, and

Prime Minister Naren-dra Modi risks a politi-cal backlash among the middle class as he seeks to coax banks into low-ering interest rates. Crit-icism is growing against his governments move last week to slash inter-est rates on small savings programmes used by as much as a third of Indias 1.3 billion people. Banks have long cited the gov-ernment-backed schemes as a reason for failing to transmit rate reductions from the central bank. The shift to link the pro-grammes with market rates is testing Modis re-solve as he seeks to kick-start growth that remains shaky despite outpacing other major economies. A backlash already prompt-

The hike, which will cost the exchequer an additional Rs 14,724.74 crore annually, will take effect from January 1, 2016, Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters after
the meeting of the Union Cabinet which took the decision. The burden on exche-quer would be Rs 6,795.5 core towards central government employees and Rs 7,929.24 crore towards pensioners during 2016-17, he said. The DA, which will benefit, 50 lakh central government employees and 58 lakh pensioners, will go up from the existing 119 per cent to 125 per cent. Dearness allowance is

Student leader Kanhaiya Kumar was on Wednes-day barred from visiting the Hyderabad Central University (HCU) after he promised a strug-gle for Rohith Vemula, a Dalit Phd scholar who killed himself on cam-pus because of alleged harassment. Kumar, who became famous when he was charged with se-dition for a speech at Delhis Jawaharlal Neh-ru University, said the universitys Joint Action Committee for Social Justice (JAC) wanted the central government to have a law called the Rohith Act, which will act against caste discrim-

ination. We have expe-rience with JAC for vari-ous struggles and we will take this fight forward...this struggle will contin-ue until Rohith Act is implemented...to fulfil his (Rohith) dreams of social justice on the cam-pus, he said. Today, I will first meet Rohith Ve-mulas mother Radhika and his brother Raja. JAC has invited me to address
a public meeting on HCU campus. If police allows me then I will definitely go to HCU and address the students, Kanhaiya told reporters at Hyder-abad airport. Universi-ty vice chancellor Appa Rao Podile said Kumar didnt have permission to hold a meeting. No-body has approached for permission. Definitely, there is no permission,
he said. Podiles official residence on the campus was attacked by students on Wednesday when he resumed work after a two-month leave fol-lowing Vemulas suicide on January 17. The uni-versity has barred out-siders from the campus and suspended classes for four days to maintain peace. In view of the situation, classes are sus-pended from March 23 to 26. We have taken a decision not to allow any outsider, including me-diapersons and political parties, on the campus, registrar M Sudhakar said when asked about Kumars plan to visit the university.
that he had donated 60 to 70 lakh Pakistani rupees to the terrorist outfit. He revealed the information of donating money to LeT when defence advocate Abdul Wahab Khan asked him if he had bought a few shops in United Arab Emirates (UAE) from the money he received from LeT. Headley also said that the money he do-nated was unlikely used for the November at-tacks.It was impossible that the money would be used [for 26/11 attack] as
2006 was the last time I had donated, he said. To a question if the money was donated for terror-ist activities, he said I had donated for many things. Advocate Khan asked Headley if Tahaw-wur Hussain Rana, fellow accused in the Denmark plot, knew about his as-sociation with LeT. To which, Headley replied in affirmative. Headley told the court that he had also informed Dr Rana about the training he underwent with the terror outfit.
The intention of this group is to kill citizens in Delhi in hotels and hos-pitals on or before Holi, the communication said. The agencies said Alam had visited a madrasa in Barpeta district in Assam
in September 2015. The ex-Pakistan armyman had stayed in the ma-drasa for five days and thereafter left for Chi-rang district, bordering Bhutan. Alam had used another madrasa in Dhu-
bri district in Assam as his base and used to visit other parts of the state, it said. In Dhubri, a teacher of the madrasa provid-ed all required logisti-cal support to Alam, the communication added.

It will affect the political inter-ests of the government, Satish Misra, an analyst at the Observer Research Foundation in Delhi, said of the rate reductions. If economic growth revives it will definitely benefit the government and they
will say more jobs have been created. Wheth-er they will succeed is the question. Modi has struggled to fend off op-position attacks that his government favours the rich over the poor, a nar-rative that prompted him to drop efforts to make it easier to acquire land. Af-ter his party got crushed at the polls in Bihar in November, Modi sought to pivot with a pro-farm-er federal budget last month.

tral government revises DA twice in a year on the basis of one year av-erage of retail inflation for industrial workers as
per a pre-determined for-mula. In September last year, DA was increased to 119 per cent from 113 per cent with effect from July 1, 2015. In April
last year, the government had hiked DA by 6 per-centage points to 113 per cent of the basic pay with effect from January 1, 2015.
