Meanwhile, the union of Air Pilots opposed the 10% cut in their allowances on Friday. They said the decision is unequal and goes against the spirit of PM’s appeal to the companies to ensure regular payment of employee’s salaries.

Air India Pilots wrote to Air India’s CMD saying by slashing allowances they have saved themselves from any meaningful austerity cut since their allowances are pretty small. In the letter, they have insisted that the allowance cut is unequal & hence unacceptable to them.

Published

On account of the continued border clash between China and India, even after 3 Indian Army men died. In the face-off that happened at the Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh, three army men, including a colonel rank officer, have sacrificed their lives. It turned violent on Monday with multiple casualties on both sides.

Following this military aggression of China, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has made a list of 450 imported goods that are made in China. It calls for nationwide aggressive boycotting of all these products and encourages purchasing All India products. India being one of the most influential traders of China, is sure to set up a massive loss to the Chinese economy.

Praveen Khandelwal, CAIT general secretary, announced that CAIT has decided to step up its nationwide boycott of Chinese imports from June 10 under the campaign ‘Bhartiya Samaan-Hamara Abhimaan,’ due to the border skirmishers.

Currently, India imports about finished goods of worth Rs 5.25 lakh crore, i.e., $ 70 billion annually. However, CAIT aims to decrease the annual import by $13 billion or about Rs 1 lakh crore by December 2021.

CAIT has identified about 3000 finished goods belonging to 500 categories, that are even made indigenously by Indian manufacturers but are imported from China due to low cost. Now it is time for Indian goods to replace the Chinese. This can be done easily as it does not require any sophisticated technology, says a statement by CAIT. For those goods that we rely upon China for, we are proposing the Indian Manufacturers.

Raising the issue to Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal, CAIT has suggested to provide incentives and assistance to small-scale industries and start-ups.

The list released by the CAIT includes all types of daily products ranging from toys and textiles to electrical, electronics, and building hardware.
