When asked specifically if the CoS had been disbanded, the official said “yes”.

SC to rule on Maharashtra floor test today
The Supreme Court will rule Tuesday on the plea by the Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress for an immediate vote to test chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’ majority on the floor of the Maharashtra assembly. The chief minister’s counsel resisted the demand for an urgent vote, arguing that Bharatiya Janata Party’s Fadnavis had been invited by governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to form a government as he headed the largest post-poll alliance in the state and would prove it in time. The row over his surprise appointment as chief minister saw disruptions in and outside Parliament with political parties accusing the Centre and the governor of bias.

92,000 employees opt for VRS at BSNL, MTNL
Over 92,000 employees of state-run BSNL and MTNL have so far opted for the recently announced Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS), according to a government source.

Nearly one lakh BSNL employees are eligible for VRS out of its total staff strength of about 1.50 lakh.

Imported onions unlikely to bring major relief to consumers
Consumers are unlikely to get major relief from soaring onion prices even as the first consignment from Egypt is likely to hit Indian coast in December. The government said that the onions would be available to state governments at the rate of Rs 52-55 a kg in Mumbai while for Delhi, the bulb would be dearer at Rs 60 a kg. This will give only little respite to consumers who are currently buying onions at the rate of Rs 80-100 a kg in various parts of the country due to crop damage from floods and incessant rains in onion growing regions of Karnataka and Maharashtra.
