Climate change: An upcoming threat with little political traction during Lok Sabha elections 18.4.2014 DNA: Popular News
As more than 850 million Indians went to poll amidst a hotly contested pre-election period, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) setup under the United Nations released the first part of its much anticipated report in Berlin, Germany, detailing where the world exactly stood on climate change.  The topic of global warming, an unfolding event which may be the catalyst of driving much of mankind’s governmental and economic policies in the future has found only fleeting mentions in the manifestos released by the BJP, the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). In fact, the AAP did not mention the issue even once as part of its political aims. However, the fact remains that India’s population has already experienced freak weather patterns which have been tied to global warming, such as the recent hailstorms experienced in Maharashtra last month where farmers of the region have put their losses at a massive Rs 20,000 crore due to this unseasonal natural event.  The irony over the lack of emphasis ...

RIL, HPCL, Mittal line up refinery expansions 17.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Reliance Industries, owner of the worlds biggest refining complex, and HPCL-Mittal Energy Ltd, part-owned by steel tycoon L N Mittal, have sought environment ministry approval for raising capacity of their plants. Reliance, whose two plants at Jamnagar in Gujarat has installed capacity to process about 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) oil, has the capability to turn the heaviest crude into value added products. Billionaire Mukesh Ambanis Reliance seeks to add a fifth crude train of 400,000 bpd, some polymer units and changing the fuel for 450 megawatt of an already approved 2100 MW power plant from gas to coal, a note on the ministrys website said. "Currently margins are low, demand also might not warrant such a huge expansion so the actual capacity addition may take some years," said an Asian trader. The timings and the cost of expansion depend on getting the necessary government approvals, which may take months to years. The new train will also help Reliance in further diversifying its crude portfolio ...

Supreme Court decision to allow CAG to audit telco accounts changes the way public utility companies function in this country (Cached) 17.4.2014 DNA: Money
In a major setback to telecom companies (telcos), the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the Delhi High Court’s order of allowing the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) to audit telecom companies’ accounts.  It may be recalled that the Delhi High Court had, on January 6 this year, permitted the CAG to audit the accounts of telcos. The purpose was to examine whether they under-reported revenues to pay a lower revenue share of licence-fee to the government. This order was challenged by the telcos and the matter was finally heard and decided by the Supreme Court. This case is bound to have an impact on yet another case that is currently being heard by the Supreme Court: on whether the CAG has the right to audit the accounts of power distribution companies. It will also have a bearing on all companies that seek to take public ‘goods’ and then offer it as a service to the public. Telecom spectrum, power or water distribution are only some examples of this. One of the reasons the Supreme Court is now ...
