6. Govt On Ethanol Production: To boost ethanol production in the country, the government is considering extending subsidised loans to grain-based distilleries also under the ongoing scheme, according to government sources.

9. OPEC On Oil Price Recovery: OPEC's secretary-general said on Monday OPEC+ producers did not expect a renewed oil-price collapse as seen in the second quarter, and said producers in the OPEC+ alliance would continue to "stay the course" in balancing the market. OPEC+ made a record supply cut from May, which boosted prices from historic lows. Brent is up from a 21-year low below $16 in April. The OPEC+ alliance said last week that it will ensure the prices do not plunge steeply again when it meets to set policy at the end of November. "I want to assure you that the OPEC, the non-OPEC partnership will continue to do what it knows best, by ensuring that we don't relapse into this almost historic plunge that we saw," Mohammad Barkindo said at the virtual India Energy Forum by CERAWeek.
