India Today is the leading news magazine and most widely read publication in India. The magazine’s leadership is unquestioned, so much so that India Today is what Indian journalism is judged by, for its integrity and ability to bring unbiased and incisive perspective to arguably the most dynamic, yet perplexing, region in the world. Breaking news and shaping opinion, it is now a household name and the flagship brand of India’s leading multidimensional media group. Additionally, the weekly brings with it a range supplements like Women, Home, Aspire, Spice and Simply which focus on style, health, education, fashion, etc. and Indian cities.

DIDI MEANS BUSINESS

“WE HAVE FOCUSED ON BRINGING CHANGE ON THE GROUND” • The Covid pandemic did not spare Himachal Pradesh. Tourism in the state was hit hard, but the apple economy mitigated some of the damage. Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, 56, spoke to Group Editorial Director Raj Chengappa and Senior Editor Anilesh S. Mahajan on the impressive progress his government has made in vaccinating its citizens and sounds confident that tourism and other state industries will soon be running at full steam. Excerpts:

Renew, Re-arm, Reform

ASSET MONETISATION THE BIG PUSH • The Modi government hopes to raise Rs 6 lakh crore over the next four years by ‘monetising’ public sector assets—leasing them out to the private sector for long-term operations. Can it deliver on this game-changing idea?

WHAT’S ON THE MENU • The Centre plans to monetise assets in 13 sectors, with an estimated value of Rs 6 lakh crore, between FY22 and FY25. Roads, railways, telecom, power transmission and power generation top the list

FALLING SHORT • THE MODI GOVERNMENT HAS REPEATEDLY MISSED ITS AMBITIOUS DISINVESTMENT TARGETS BETWEEN 2014-15 AND 2020-21

THE CENTRE’S CURRENT DISINVESTMENT GOALS

PRICING THE ASSETS • Assets can be valued in many ways. These range from comparisons with transactions of similar assets to estimates of the investment required to upgrade an asset

PPP PROJECTS IN INFRASTRUCTURE • India’s tryst with public private partnerships isn't new

HOW SOME COUNTRIES MONETISED THEIR ASSETS

GAMEPLAN GUJARAT • The change of guard at the top had two primary objectives: winning over the Patidars and tackling disaffection in the BJP ranks. Can new chief minister Bhupendra Patel keep the BJP’s ranks together until the election in 2022?

CHALLENGING TASK • A first-time MLA, Bhupendra Patel faces an uphill task in revving up the administration before the election. Among his challenges:

LOSING ITS EDGE • In 2017, the BJP was down to 99 assembly seats mainly due to the setback in Patidar-dominated Saurashtra

A WILD WIND FROM WESTERN UP • AS THE REGION’S JATS AND MUSLIMS UNITE AGAINST THE CENTRE’S FARM POLICIES, THEY POSE A CHALLENGE TO THE RULING BJP’S PROSPECTS AHEAD OF THE 2022 UP ELECTION

“WE’LL HAVE A FARMERS’ MOVEMENT IN EVERY VILLAGE” • BKU national president Naresh Tikait outlined the strategy ahead, a day after the Muzaffarnagar kisan mahapanchayat
