The Telecom Commission today cleared a proposal to allow calls and internet services during flights. The move will allow passengers to use smartphones once the aircraft achieves a height of 3,000 meters. &ldquo;The services can be rolled out over the next 3-4 months as arrangements will need to be made between telecom companies, airlines and other intermediaries involved in the process,&rdquo; telecom secretary Aruna Sundararajan said. <a href=”https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/browse-internet-make-calls-while-in-the-air-govt-clears-proposal/articleshow/63985444.cms”>Read</a>

PM Modi today dared Rahul Gandhi to speak in any language for 15 minutes without reading out from paper. Rahul had earlier said he wanted to speak in Parliament for 15 minutes on several issues, and that he was quite certain Modi would not be able to remain seated for long. “He (Rahul Gandhi) had challenged me that if he speaks for 15 minutes then I will not be able to stand in front of him. Yes, you are right, you are a ‘naamdar’, what right do we ‘kaamdaars’ have to even sit in front of you,” Modi responded.
The SC today asked state cricket associations to give their suggestions on the draft constitution for the BCCI. The bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said a draft constitution would be approved by it, which would be binding on the BCCI. However, it clarified that its order on petitions seeking recall of the 2016 verdict would deal with the validity of the draft constitution.

Indian-American techies held rallies in the US to demand an end to the long and massive green card backlog. Participants argued that per country quota on issuing of Green Cards per annum was the main reason for the backlog. They displayed posters with ‘Remove Per Country Limits for employment based Green cards’, ‘300,000 waiting for 90 years’ and ‘What did I do wrong’. Having a green card allows a person to live and work permanently in the US.
A new scan of the Indian Ocean floor for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 did not find any sign of the aircraft’s wreckage. Ocean Infinity, the American technology company conducting the latest search, said in an update that it had scanned up to 1,300 square kilometers per day since launching its mission far off the west coast of Australia in late January. MH370 disappeared March 8, 2014, while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard.
