Viswanatha Sastry, in the first part of their recommendations on the Vivian Bose Commission report on the Dalmia-Jain group of companies, have given a list of cases where some further investigation might be continued from the available evidence as to enable a sufficiently complete story to be put through as may be required for the purpose of proceedings in a court.
Aid to raise productivity
An institution of work study has been formed in India with its head office in New Delhi. It will be recalled that Mr. Russel M. Currie, President of the European Work Study Federation, recently visited various centres in this country at the invitation of the Government of India to focus attention on work study as an aid to increased productivity. It is as a result of his visit that work study practitioners in this country have formed this institution to cover research, assistance to industry and dissemination of the work study doctrine. It would also confer professional status on practitioners.

A special export promotion scheme for encouraging exports of gold jewellery and gold articles was officially announced in New Delhi on May 6. Another export promotion scheme for the export of pearls, diamonds and precious and semi-precious stones through sales to foreign tourists against payment in foreign currency and foreign currency travellers’ cheques was also announced. This scheme will come into force from July 1, 1963.
