             abstract = "We present a detailed investigation of the Rastall gravity 
                         extension of the standard CDM model. We review the model for two 
                         simultaneous modifications of different nature in the Friedmann 
                         equation due to the Rastall gravity: the new contributions of the 
                         material (actual) sources (considered as effective source) and the 
                         altered evolution of the material sources. We discuss the 
                         role/behavior of these modifications with regard to some low 
                         redshift tensions, including the so-called H0 tension, prevailing 
                         within the standard CDM. We constrain the model at the level of 
                         linear perturbations, and obtain the first constraints through a 
                         robust and accurate analysis using the latest full Planck cosmic 
                         microwave background (CMB) data, with and without including baryon 
                         acoustic oscillations (BAO) data. We find that the Rastall 
                         parameter (null for general relativity) is consistent with zero at 
                         68% CL (with a tendency towards positive values, \−0.0001 
                         << 0.0007 (CMB+BAO) at 68% CL), which in turn implies no 
                         significant statistical evidence for deviation from general 
                         relativity, and also a precision of O(10\−4) for the 
                         coefficient \−1/2 of the term g\μ\ν R in the 
                         Einstein field equations of general relativity (guaranteeing the 
                         local energy-momentum conservation). We explore the consequences 
                         led by the Rastall gravity on the cosmological parameters in the 
                         light of the observational analyses. It turns out that the 
                         effective source, with a present-day density parameter X0 = 
                         \−0.0010±0.0013 (CMB+BAO, 68% CL), dynamically screens the 
                         usual vacuum energy at high redshifts, but this mechanism barely
