    Top News Podcast: From an increase in gold import tax, rising auto demand, latest on the Maharashtra government, and more, here are all top developments of the day. Tune in!

    Total sales of Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto and Ashok Leyland in June exceeded Street estimates, rekindling hopes of a rebound in the space, though those of Maruti Suzuki fell short of expectations. Analysts are positive about the demand prospects for the sector in the coming months given the easing of input costs and the chip shortage.
    In this edition of the Top News Podcast, CNBCTV18.com’s Kanishka Sarkar shares the latest on the auto sector, Maharashtra government updates, windfall tax, increased import duty on gold, and more.

    Meanwhile, the Supreme Court came down heavily on suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma for her controversial remarks against Prophet Muhammad during a television debate on the Gyanvapi mosque row. The court said she was "single-handedly responsible" for fanning flames across India and should apologise to the whole nation.
