Highlights of India Today – 17th September 2018 issue:
This week's issue talks about how the Modi government's demonetisation move in 2016 may not have been a success for the Indian economy. With RBI data showing that 99.3 per cent of banned currency is back in the banking system, the Modi government's claim that demonetisation will stamp out black money has fallen flat. Was the note ban all pain and no gain? The issue's special package on Asian Games 2018 talks about how new disciplines and a memorable outing in the track and field events gave India its best medal haul at the 2018 Asian Games. The story A Leaf Out of the BJP Book looks at Madhya Pradesh, where the Cognress plans to beat the incumbent party - the BJP - at its own game by borrowing its electoral strategy under state in-charge Kamal Nath. This week's special package on Taj Mahal - Monumental Mismanagement - looks at the little-understood phenomenon - visual pollution - and a lopsided preservation policy that excludes the Taj Ganj and heritage buildings that were once part of the Taj complex. The issue also comes with a free magazine: Simply Chennai
