Gravitational Vibrations - Edukemy Current Affairs

Why in news? Recently, an international team of astronomers announced scientific evidence confirming the presence of gravitational waves using pulsar observations.


  • Gravitational waves are ripples, or disturbances, produced in the fabric of spacetime by large moving objects, something similar to the ripples produced on the surface of water by a moving boat.
  • The existence of gravitational waves was predicted by Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity in 1916, but its experimental confirmation came only in 2015.
    • This new research indicates that multiple gravitational waves constantly deform and reshape spacetime, influencing the motion of celestial bodies.

Key Findings:

  • Scientists have discovered a ‘background hum’ rumbling throughout the universe. It confirms the presence of low-frequency (long-wavelengths) gravitational waves, thought to be constantly rolling through space noise.
  • They also set new limits on the strength and frequency of these waves, which are consistent with theoretical predictions.
  • They are also tantalisingly close to the discovery of nanohertz gravitational waves, which would open up new possibilities for studying galaxy evolution, cosmology, and fundamental physics.

More Information:

  • India’s Giant Metre wave Radio Telescope (GMRT, Pune) was among the world’s six large telescopes that played a vital role in providing evidence. The other 5 are located in Germany, the UK, France, Italy and the Netherlands.

Food security promises - Edukemy Current Affairs

Exam view: Anna Bhagya; OMSS; A key message to States.

Context: The Karnataka government’s decision to convert the promised Anna Bhagya scheme to a direct benefit transfer temporarily has brought into focus the limits of a State government’s policy intervention on a crucial matter such as food security.

Decoding the editorial: Anna Bhagya

  • Under this scheme, the government had envisaged the following provisions
    • 5 kg of free rice per person per month to
    • 42 crore beneficiaries, including 45 lakh Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY) cardholders, 3.58 crore Priority Household (PHH) cardholders, and 39 lakh cardholders belonging to Karnataka’s own category of PHH.
  • This was in addition to the regular entitlements to the beneficiaries under the National Food Security Act (NFSA).
  • The State would have required around 2.3 lakh metric tonnes of rice every month to meet this commitment.
    • Karnataka had planned to utilise Open Market Sale Scheme-Domestic (OMSS-D) to implement the scheme, which was one of the five pre-poll guarantees of the Congress party.
    • The Food Corporation of India (FCI) had agreed to supply the quantity under the OMSS-D for July, but the Union Food Ministry discontinued the sale of rice and wheat under OMSS-D to all State governments, with exceptions.
  • There is also one difference between the present and the immediate past.
    • The Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY), implemented in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, is no longer in force. This scheme had provided five kg of free food-grains per person per month from the central pool to AAY and PHH cardholders all over India.


  • Sale of surplus stocks of wheat and rice
    • It is done at predetermined prices through e-auctions in the open market, to improve the supply of food-grains and control the price line, States have generally been allowed to purchase the surplus stock without e-auctions.
    • The OMSS is now limited to accommodate small and marginal buyers and traders.
    • The quantity that a bidder can purchase in a single bid ranges from 10-100 metric tonnes at present.
  • The Centre’s decision
    • It took several States, especially rice-deficit ones, by surprise, since OMSS is one of the routes that they use to supplement their allocation.
    • The suddenness of the decision especially hit Karnataka, which had begun preparations to launch the scheme in anticipation of the FCI’s help.
    • The Centre has its own compulsions in restricting the availability of food-grains under OMSS-D.
      • The quarterly stock position of rice and wheat in the Central pool, as on April 1, 2023, was the lowest in the last three years, despite being much higher than the level prescribed in the food-grains stocking norms.
      • Uncertainty regarding the south-west monsoon and the possible impact of an adverse monsoon on the production of food-grains are factors that the authorities must have considered before taking the decision to restrict supply.
    • All this only justifies the need for more broad-based consultation.

A key message to States

  • Own mechanism in place before launching any scheme
    • Even if there had been no row between the Central and Karnataka governments, the sustainability of Anna Bhagya was questionable as supply only through OMSS-D would not have been sufficient.
    • On average, about 16 lakh tonnes were drawn in total by all the players in the country from 2018-19 to 2022-23.
    • The highest quantity of about 24.6 lakh tonnes was drawn in 2020-21, the first year of COVID-19.
    • But Karnataka would have needed about 27.5 lakh tonnes annually, about 1.5 lakh tonnes higher than the State’s allocation under the NFSA for 2023-24.
    • The FCI had reportedly agreed to supply grains to Karnataka at ₹36.6 per kg. Assuming that the required quantity was obtained at this cost, the monthly outgo would have been about ₹840 crore.
    • Thus, the States must consider the macro picture to ascertain the practicality of their new schemes.
  • Not an instrument of politics
    • Political parties should stop viewing food-grains as an instrument of politics and begin to take an objective appraisal of programmes such as PMGKAY and Anna Bhagya.
