The provisional data of the 20th Livestock Census released by the Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying on Wednesday showed that the livestock population increased by 4.6 per cent, from 512.06 million in 2012.
Besides, there was a spectacular 16.8 per cent increase in the poultry population in the country to 851.81 million, mainly on account of a 46 per cent rise in backyard poultry birds, whose numbers have gone up to 317 million.
Among the States, Uttar Pradesh has the highest number of livestock of 67.8 million (68.7 million in 2012), followed by Rajasthan 56.8 million (57.7 million), Madhya Pradesh: 40.6 million (36.3 million) and West Bengal: 37.4 million (30.3 million).
The Hurun Research Institute has released the inaugural Hurun Global Unicorn List 2019, a ranking of the world’s billion-dollar tech ‘start-ups’ founded in the 2000s and not yet listed on a public exchange.
This is the first year of the list, and follows from the sixth quarterly Hurun China Unicorn Index.
Valuations are a snapshot as of 30 June 2019.
There are 494 unicorns in all, based in 25 countries and 118 cities. Set up seven years ago on average, they are worth $3.4 billion on average and $1.7 trillion in total.
China pipped the US to lead by 206 versus 203, and together they accounted for over 80 per cent of the world’s unicorns. Europe has 35 unicorns.
India ranked third
India was placed third with 21 unicorns, led by payments solutions platform One97 Communications ($10 billion) and followed by cab aggregator Ola Cabs ($6 billion); online educator Byju’s ($6 billion) and travel-stay finder OYO Rooms ($5 billion).
The UK was fourth with 13.

– Any investment expenditure by a government.

GDP Deflator refers to the-
Ratio between GDP at current prices and GDP at constant prices.
Thus, first statement is reversed.
It is believed to be a better measure of price behaviour because it covers all goods and services produced in the country.
Also, because the weight of services has not been equitably accounted in the Indian ‘headline ination’, that is, ination at WPI
