Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) said it made its fifth oil discovery in Cambay basin in Gujarat.The oil was found in a block that is 130 km from Ahmedabad. The block was awarded under the fifth round of New Exploration Licensing Policy.
RIL had made its fourth discovery in the Cambay basin in April.

and Bajaj Auto have agreed to price the ultra low cost (ULC) car that they are jointly developing with Nissan at $2,500, (around Rs 1.10 lakh) to take on Tata Nano.

In the early 1980s, both Bangladesh and India staked claim to the island — 3.5 km long and 3 km wide, located 2 km from the mouth of the Hariabhanga river. In 1981, India sent naval ships to the island and deployed BSF personnel who hoisted the Tricolour to establish, legitimize Indian claim on New Moore. But there was never any permanent settlement there.
