This Deepavali season is the first time in nearly a decade when Aseem Triwedi, a shopkeeper in the Chandni Chowk area here, has had to spend more time in front of his counter than behind it. By doing so, he can speak to customers through his door, urging them to pay by cash so that he can avoid the hassles of the Goods and Services Tax. He is not the only shopkeeper making this plea to customers.
The Ministry of Petroleum is working towards creating an e-commerce platform in which customers can order diesel online and get delivery at their doorstep, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, and officials in his Ministry said on Wednesday. “We have decided to allow all petroleum products for e-commerce,” Mr. Pradhan said, speaking at the India Mobile Congress. “We had said doorstep delivery would be possible,” he said.
The Ministry of Finance on Thursday categorically denied the rumours of the resignation of Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian, whose term comes to an end in October. ABP News had reported that Mr. Subramanian was considering resigning before his term ends. He took over as CEA on October 16, 2014 for a term of three years. An extension would mean his term would end in October 2019.
@the_hindu We do not have good data on jobs, employment and unemployment. The only satisfactory way to get good data is from household surveys. Last NSSO survey was in 2011 and next one will release data only in 2018: Debroy
@the_hindu There is consensus among the committee about the various reasons behind the economic slowdown, but those will not be revealed to the media yet. Our recommendations are only for the PM: Debroy
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
