Nationwide strike called by transporters Kanpur/ Chennai/ Pune, Oct 01 (ANI): Transporters across the country went on an indefinite strike on Thursday (October 01) to protest against the present toll system which they say is "corrupt and costly". School bus operators have also joined the strike which will affect school children the most. The strike was called by All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC) after talks between its delegation and the government failed on Wednesday (September 30). The government had offered installation of electronic toll tax system across the country by December but doesn't agree with AIMTC's demand of scrapping the toll system. The truck associations of many states extended their support to the strike. However, essential commodities like milk, vegetables and medicine were kept off the purview of the strike. On the other side, many truck drivers faced problems as most of them were stuck at one place. Among AIMTC's demands are barrier-free movement of vehicles, one-time collection of fixed annual tax and different rates for trucks on national and state permits. The government has called their demands "irrational". 01-Oct-2015

Ayurveda practitioners cultivate herbal Tripura, Oct 01 (ANI): A group of 55 practitioners of Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine, cultivate herbal gardens comprising hundreds of rare herbs useful in preparing Ayurvedic medicines in Tripura.
