Some lines of current affairs 30 April 2024 news

  • The Indian and UK governments are in talks about making Indian warships run on electric power instead of diesel, gas, or steam. The plan is to use electric propulsion for large warships weighing over 6,000 tons. The UK recently expressed interest in helping India develop this capability through a government-to-government agreement. Indian officials are reviewing the proposal, and if accepted, the details of the agreement will be worked out. Once finalized, the UK’s GE Power Conversion and India’s Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) will collaborate to develop an Integrated All-Electric Propulsion System for the warships.
  • The plan for small finance banks (SFBs) to become universal banks includes criteria like net worth and NPA ratios. To qualify, SFBs need a minimum net worth of ₹1,000 crore and a profitable track record for the past two years. They should also maintain a low level of bad loans and have a diverse loan portfolio. However, most of the current SFBs may not meet these criteria until next year. This is because they haven’t met the required thresholds for bad loans in the past two fiscal years.
  • In 2015, these SFBs got “in-principle” approval from the RBI. Now, to become universal banks, they must be listed on a stock exchange and have a net worth of ₹1,000 crore. They also need to maintain a capital-to-risk-weighted assets ratio of 15%, have a good track record for at least five years, and be in a scheduled status. There’s no need for a specific promoter, but the current promoters should remain in their roles. During the transition, no new promoters can join, and there’s no new minimum shareholding requirement.
  • Currently, there are 11 SFBs, including AU (merged with Fincare SFB), Capital, Equitas, Suryoday, Ujjivan, Utkarsh, ESAF Jana, North East, Shivalik, and Unity.
  • Plastic waste spreads from Mount Everest to the Pacific Ocean floor.
    Representatives from 175 countries meet in Ottawa, Canada to discuss a global treaty to tackle plastic pollution.
  • This marks the fourth round of talks since 2022 for a binding treaty on plastic pollution by the end of 2024. The final round will be in South Korea in November.
  • The proposed plastic treaty will be a significant environmental agreement, akin to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
  • It aims to guide wealthy nations in assisting poorer ones to meet their plastic reduction goals.
    Since 1950, global plastic production has surged from 2 million to over 450 million tonnes by 2019.
  • Plastic takes 20 to 500 years to decompose, with less than 10% currently being recycled.
  • Plastic waste is contaminating rivers and oceans, breaking down into microplastics. This, along with plastic production and disposal, contributes to climate change.
  • A study estimates annual plastic waste generation at around 400 million tonnes.
  • China’s portion of India’s industrial imports rose from 21% to 30% over the past 15 years, according to GTRI. A recent report from the Global Trade Research Initiative (GTRI) underscores India’s increasing reliance on Chinese goods like electronics, machinery, and telecom equipment. India’s annual exports to China remained stable at around USD 16 billion from 2019 to 2024. Meanwhile, China’s imports surged from USD 70.3 billion in 2018–19 to over USD 101 billion in 2023–24, resulting in a cumulative trade deficit exceeding USD 387 billion over five years. The widening trade gap with China raises concerns about economic stability and national security. The report highlights that India’s imports from other countries are growing at a rate 2.3 times slower than China’s exports to India. In the fiscal year 2023–24, China contributed USD 101.8 billion to India’s total merchandise imports of USD 677.2 billion, representing 15% of India’s total imports. In specific sectors, China accounted for USD 19 billion, or 39.6%, of India’s machinery imports, and USD 15.8 billion, or 29.2%, of India’s chemicals and pharmaceuticals imports, which totaled USD 54.1 billion.
