close watch from the govern­ment on prices has kept the in­fla­tion­ary trends at bay. ‘’ From in­dus­try stand­point, ex­cept the ini­tial tech­no­log­i­cal chal­lenges in fil­ings and block­age of funds for ex­porters, GST has not caused any ma­jor dis­rup­tion. In many cases, there has been a sav­ing of 3 to 5 per cent due to in­cre­men­tal cred­its and ven­dor price rene­go­ti­a­tion, which can po­ten­tially go up fur­ther.”

From the govern­ment’s stand­point, Jain said, the rev­enue col­lec­tions have been a tad lower than ex­pected. “There is def­i­nite ex­pan­sion in tax base with some vis­i­ble buoy­ancy over last few months.” “It took a lot of time to lodge an FIR in the rape case of an eight- year- old girl in Mand­saur. Even to­day the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is not go­ing in the right di­rec­tion. We de­mand a CBI in­quiry in the case. Women in my state don’t feel safe,” he told the me­dia. Mean­while, a se­nior leader from the rul­ing BJP courted a con­tro­versy by re­port­edly ask­ing the par­ents of the child to ex­press grat­i­tude to the lo­cal MP for vis­it­ing them.
