    On your post on Shiv sena,
    It did not participate in the superior of the three-tier Panchayat, but it was formed,in 1966, as a political organisation only.
    It was formed to raise the concern of intra-state immigration and takeover of the white-collar jobs in public bodies.

    For fifteenth question TIFR was established in 1945 and Sindri Fertilizer factory was in 1952 (in first five year plan). I think answer should be TIFR instead of Sindri Fertilizer factory.

    I couldn't get information about "The National News Print Ltd". Can anybody please help me with this. Thanks.
