>>The second paragraph of “ >LS passes National Judicial Appointments Commission Bill ” (August 14, 2014, Front page) said: “The members also passed the 99th Constitution Amendment Bill, which gives Constitutional status to the proposed Commission …” Some readers said it should have been the 121st. The correspondent clarifies: “It is the 99th Amendment. The Minister moved an amendment changing the number. This is not unusual and happens when a bill is cleared ahead of the others that are already lined up. So the Bill was introduced as 121st but since it got cleared earlier than others, its number was changed.”

>>A sentence in “ >Glimpses of India through stamps ” (August 12, 2014, Book Review page) read: “The writer gives a brief history of … to air mail (launched in 1931 when JRD Tata flew a tiny single engine).” The correct year is 1932.

>>The report, “ >Malware installed in official computer at Pak wo man’s behest: Poddar ” (August 8, 2014, some editions), referred to the arrest of Naik Subedar Patan Kumar Poddar. He is Naib Subedar Patan Kumar Poddar.
