After JioFiber, Airtel launches 1Gbps broadband plan

New Delhi, Sep 11 (TIWN) In a direct challenge to JioFiber, telecom major Bharti Airtel on Wednesday launched its ultra-fast broadband offering, Airtel Xstream Fibre, at Rs 3,999.

Indicating this, R. Kamaraj, Food Minister, told The Hindu on Friday that the Centre would make the allocation quarterly to the State. “Our government will only be the facilitator in making the foodgrains available to eligible beneficiaries among inter-State migrant workers, as per their food habits. We will do what the National Food Security Act (NFSA) stipulates.” Even though the latest data on inter-State migrant workers in Tamil Nadu is not available, two reports indicate that Tamil Nadu is one of the leading inflow States and Bihar, West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand and Assam are among the outflow States. The Economic Survey of the Union government for 2016-17, presented to Parliament, stated that during 2001-2011, Tamil Nadu received net migrants of 10.13 lakhs in the 20-29 age cohort.  Conducted by the Loyola Institute of Social Science Training and Research, Chennai, and the Indian Social Institute (ISI) of Bengaluru in 2016, a survey on inter-State migrants in Chennai and the neighbouring districts of Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur quoted a report of the State government, which found in 2014 that there were 10.67 lakh migrant workers, mostly unskilled.
