Corrections and clarifications

The first paragraph of the front-page report “No cash was given for votes: Manmohan” (March 24, 2011) said “… no one from the Congress or the government had indulged in any lawful act as alleged in a U.S. Embassy cable…” Many readers have pointed out that it should have been unlawful as correctly mentioned in a quotation in the second paragraph.

It was not the Sixth Pay Commission that introduced the revision of dearness allowance twice in every calendar year, on January 1 and July 1 as mentioned in the third paragraph of a report “6% dearness allowance rise for Central staff” (March 23, 2011). It was in effect even before the Sixth Pay Commission.

The expansion of NATO was given as North Atlantic Treaty Alliance in the third paragraph of a report “Cracks in Libya coalition” (International, March 23, 2011). It should have been North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

The fourth paragraph of a report “Lokayukta to send White Paper to Moily” (March 21, 2011) said that Karnataka Lokayukta N. Santosh Hegde expressed his displeasure over the Jan Lokpal Bill. It should have been Lokpal Bill.
