>>Two sentences in the report, “RSS asks people to oust ‘corrupt’ UPA govt. in the polls” (Oct. 28, 2013), read: “…He [Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh general secretary Suresh (Bhaiyyaji) Joshi ] said the organisation maintained contacts at various levels in nearly 15,000 villages across the country …” and “…the RSS was holding ‘shakhas’ at 6,000 places across the country …”

A clarification from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh - quoting Suresh (Bhaiyyaji) Joshi – said: “The RSS has expanded its organisational growth since October 2012. We could start shakha activities in 2,500 new places. Now, 6,000 places are having either weekly or monthly shakhas. More than 50,000 villages are having RSS presence in the form of daily, weekly or occasional shakhas. Total number of contact places is 75,000.”

>>In the graphic titled “The Numbers”, under the headings “Literacy Rate” and “Poverty Rate” (Oct. 27, 2013), the maps of Haryana were placed instead of Tamil Nadu. It was a design error.

>>In the third paragraph of “Rajasthan cop gave Rahul ISI info: Modi” (Oct. 27, 2013) there was a reference to the Central Bureau of Information. It should have been Central Bureau of Investigation. It was an editing error.

>>The third paragraph of “Three out of three for Bayern, Real Madrid and PSG” (Oct. 25, 2013, Sport) said that PSG was four points ahead of Benfica and Olympiakos in Group C. Actually, it was five points ahead.
