  1939: India - Archive Article - MSN Encarta
Early in January 1939, the more moderate policies of Mohandas K. Gandhi, the dominant figure in India, received a setback in the re-election of Subhas Chandra Bose as President of the Congress Party, which now controls eight out of the eleven provinces of British India.
Before the convening of the plenary session of the Congress Party at Tripuri on March 11, India watched with interest and alarm the struggle between the Mahatma and Shri Dharmendrasinhji, ruler of the minor state of Rajkot, over the granting of democratic reforms in the domain of the latter.
While the Congress claims the right to speak for all the people of India, it is to be noted that although Moslems took part in the Tripuri meeting, it was clear that the Congress did not speak for the 90,000,000 people of that creed, nor for the 12,000,000 Sikhs, nor for various other minority groups.

In India, inland fisheries is classified as follows: freshwater aquaculture, including the pond culture of carp; brackishwater aquaculture, involving mostly shrimp culture; and capture fisheries in rivers, estuaries, lakes, reservoirs, etc.
Owing to the arrival of induced breeding, most of the states in India were able to raise carp seed in large quantities by the 1970s which resulted in a shift in species-mix in favour of catla (Catla catla), rohu (Labeo rohita) and mrigal (Cirrhinus mrigala).
Along India's east and west coasts, particularly those of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, a large number of commercial integrated shrimp farming units with foreign collaboration are emerging and adopting scientific culture systems with facilities for production of shrimp seed, shrimp feed and processing.

Though declaration of the war was followed by a period of falling prices, this was, however, a temporary phenomenon and with the progress of the war, there came, an era of increased business activity and rising prices.
Whereas the implementation of the Ayers Committee report by the Amendment Act of 1939 was simply a continuing administrative process for developing a comprehensive statute on income-tax, two measures introduced subsequently can be specifically attributed to the outbreak of war.
