India’s first second generation (2G) Ethanol Bio-Refinery will set up in Bargarh district of Odisha by 2020, where ethanol will be produced from rice straw. The proposed plant will be set up by the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) at an estimated cost of Rs 100 crore. The foundation stone of which was laid on 10th October 2018. The bio-refinery will have a capacity to produce 3 crore litre of fuel-grade ethanol annually using rice straw as feedstock. The Bargarh Bio-Refinery will utilise about 2 lakh tonne of rice straw annually as feedstock which will be sourced from nearby locations including Bhatli, Ambabhona, Attabira, Sohela, Burla and Lakhanpur. The refinery will be based on zero-liquid discharge plant technology where water will be recycled back into the plant. Blending of ethanol in petrol will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions as compared to fossil fuels. Apart from Odisha, BPCL will also set up bio-refineries in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. . The National Biofuel Policy of India 2018 targets 20% Ethanol blending to Petrol by 2030. However, due to non-availability of Ethanol, the current Ethanol blending in Petrol is about 3 to 4%. , , Image Tweeted by @bharatpetroleum @ ANI , , Article Credit: www.gktoday.in , , #currentaffairs4exams #ssc #civilservice #ssccgl #getloconow #upsc #currentaffairs #generalknowledge #generalawareness #iasexam #civilservices #newdelhi #civilserviceexam #castudent #charteredaccountant #jnusu #brainbaazi #newdelhiindia #meerut #noida #gaziabad #gk #greaternoida #kabtakrokoge #currentaffairs2018 #bihar #bpcl #2GEthanolBioRefinery #bharatpetroleumcorporationlimited

Union Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has recently released the policy on the biometric-based digital processing of passengers at airports called “Digi Yatra” to make hassle-free air travel for passengers. Digi Yatra is about Facial Recognition based passenger processing which is a common standard being adopted the world over. It will facilitate paperless travel and avoid identity check at multiple points. In the first phase in February 2019, Hyderabad and Bengaluru international airports will have the system on a pilot basis. In the second phase, in April 2019, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) will roll out the programme initially at Kolkata, Varanasi, Pune and Vijayawada airports later on, all airports will adopt the system. Under the Digi Yatra, passenger can get a Digi Yatra ID by sharing minimum details like Name, e-mail ID, Mobile number and details of one approved Identity proof where Aadhar ID is not mandatory. This DigiYatra ID will be shared by passengers while booking ticket. Airlines will share the passenger data and DigiYatraID with the departure airport. , , Image Tweeted by @sureshpprabhu , , Article Credit: www.gktoday.in , , #currentaffairs4exams #ssc #civilservice #ssccgl #getloconow #upsc #currentaffairs #generalknowledge #generalawareness #iasexam #civilservices #newdelhi #civilserviceexam #castudent #charteredaccountant #jnusu #brainbaazi #newdelhiindia #meerut #noida #gaziabad #gk #greaternoida #kabtakrokoge #currentaffairs2018 #konbanegacrorepati #digiyatra #CivilAviationMinistry #digitalIndia

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2018 to Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict. Both laureates have made a crucial contribution to focusing attention on, and combating, such war crimes. Denis Mukwege is the helper who has devoted his life to defending these victims. Nadia Murad is the witness who tells of the abuses perpetrated against herself and others. Each of them in their own way has helped to give greater visibility to war-time sexual violence, so that the perpetrators can be held accountable for their actions. The physician Denis Mukwege has spent large parts of his adult life helping the victims of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since the Panzi Hospital was established in Bukavu in 1999, Dr. Mukwege and his staff have treated thousands of patients who have fallen victim to such assaults. Most of the abuses have been committed in the context of a long-lasting civil war that has cost the lives of more than six million Congolese. Nadia Murad is herself a victim of war crimes. She refused to accept the social codes that require women to remain silent and ashamed of the abuses to which they have been subjected. She has shown uncommon courage in recounting her own sufferings and speaking up on behalf of other victims. Nadia Murad is a member of the Yazidi minority in northern Iraq, where she lived with her family in the remote village of Kocho. In August 2014 the Islamic State (IS) launched a brutal, systematic attack on the villages of the Sinjar district, aimed at exterminating the Yazidi population.

On the 149th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal hoisted India’s tallest National Flag from the average city elevation at the Gandhi Mandap in Guwahati. The 9,600 sq ft flag stands on a 319.5 ft flag pole at Gandhi Mandap, a memorial for Mahatma Gandhi atop the Sarania Hill in the heart of Assam’s principal city. The tip of the flag pole from the base of the hill is about 300 metres that makes it the tallest from the mean sea level. It carries a flag of 120×80 feet dimension. Though, considering only the height of the flag pole, the National Flag at Gandhi Mandap is the third tallest in the country after Punjab’s Attari border (360 ft) and Pimpri Chinchwad Bhakti Shakti Chowk, Pune (351 ft). The total cost of the National Flag installation project is Rs 2.92 crore, which includes operations and maintenance for a period of one year. , , Image Tweeted by @cmofficeassam , , Article Credit: www.gktoday.in , , #currentaffairs4exams #ssc #civilservice #ssccgl #getloconow #upsc #currentaffairs #generalknowledge #generalawareness #iasexam #civilservices #newdelhi #civilserviceexam #castudent #charteredaccountant #jnusu #brainbaazi #newdelhiindia #meerut #noida #gaziabad #gk #greaternoida #kabtakrokoge #currentaffairs2018 #konbanegacrorepati #indianflag #IndiastallestNationalflag #guwahatiassam

NITI Aayog has signed a Statement of Intent (SoI) with cloud services provider Oracle to curb the distribution of fake drugs using new technologies. Apollo Hospitals and Strides Pharma Sciences will partner in this effort. The partners will pilot a real drug supply chain using blockchain decentralized ledger and Internet of Things (IoT) software. The Blockchain technology helps to permanently register a drug’s record in the manufacturer’s drug supply chain (serial number, labelling, scanning), leaving no scope for record tampering. At every point of hand change, it records the drug’s movement – from manufacturer to logistics, to stockist to hospital, or pharmacy to consumer. In case of a fake drug, the software will detect irregularity. Additionally, critical information such as chemical ingredients of the drug or maintenance of temperature control in case of life saving drugs or vaccines can also be tracked. , , Image Tweeted by @nitiaayog , , Article Credit: www.gktoday.in , , #currentaffairs4exams #ssc #civilservice #ssccgl #getloconow #upsc #currentaffairs #generalknowledge #generalawareness #iasexam #civilservices #newdelhi #civilserviceexam #castudent #charteredaccountant #jnusu #brainbaazi #newdelhiindia #meerut #noida #gaziabad #gk #greaternoida #kabtakrokoge #currentaffairs2018 #konbanegacrorepati #nitiaayog #Oracle #Oracleindia

In a major victory for northeastern indie cinema and female filmmakers, Rima Das’ National Award-winning Assamese film Village Rockstars has been selected as India’s official entry to the 91 Academy Awards, 2019. Addressing the issues of women empowerment and gender inequality, the film follows a rebellious and ambitious young girl, Dhunu (played by Bhanita Das), who dreams of rising above poverty, owning a guitar and forming her own rock band. A rare ensemble “Luckily, I got this news in my village at Chhayagaon, Assam. I am glad that I am with my family and the cast of the film. Otherwise, a news like this, if you are alone in some far-off land, could put you off balance,” said Ms. Das, who is a self-taught filmmaker. What sets this film apart is the involvement of non-actors, including the protagonist and other children, who hail from Das’ native village in Assam. “It’s the first Assamese film to be sent as an official entry, in fact first from the northeast,” says Utpal Borpujari, film critic and filmmaker. The 12-member selection committee of the Film Federation of India, headed by Kannada producer and director Rajendra Babu, picked Village Rockstars from 29 entries including films like Manto, Ajji, Nude, Gali Guleiyan, Raazi, Padmaavat and October. Village Rockstars is only the second Assamese film to win the Swarna Kamal for Best Feature Film at the National Film Awards, after Jahnu Barua’s 1987 film Halodhia Choraye Baodhan Khai.

The Odisha government has launched a ‘Star-Rating’ system for industries to check air pollution. It’s a first-of-its-kind initiative in the state to ensure transparency in compliance to pollution standards. The initiative will help public find out whether industries in their vicinity are fair in their environmental compliance. It will also recognise the efforts of industries that take responsibility to maintain clean environment. The system will rate industries from 1 to 5 based on their efforts to meet the standards set by Odisha State Pollution Control Board (OSPCB). It will be implemented with the help of Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC India) researchers and Tata Centre for Development at Chicago (TCD) in a phased manner. The programme will cover 20 industrial plants initially and will eventually cover all the 136 plants with continuously monitored data. , , Image Tweeted by @naveen_odisha , , Article Credit: www.gktoday.in , #currentaffairs4exams #ssc #civilservice #ssccgl #getloconow #upsc #currentaffairs #generalknowledge #generalawareness #iasexam #civilservices #newdelhi #civilserviceexam #castudent #charteredaccountant #brainbaazi #newdelhiindia #meerut #noida #jnusu #gaziabad #gk #greaternoida #kabtakrokoge #currentaffairs2018 #konbanegacrorepati #delhiuniversity #naveenpatnaik #starrating #odishagovt
