NEW DELHI May 21 (Agencies): The Supreme Court has agreed to examine a plea of the income tax department whether the North Okhla Industrial Development Authority (NOIDA) is a corporation established by the Uttar Pradesh government under the state industrial development law or not.

Ahead of the next NSG plenary session, official sources say, India has renewed its efforts to become a member of the 48-nation group ...
