Modi takes first bite at coal to end India's power mess 23.10.2014 Asian Age: Business
A key step towards bringing order to the country's chaotic power industry India could allow commercial coal mining by foreign companies if they set up units in the country, opening the door for global giants like Rio Tinto to access the world's fifth-largest coal reserves, a source familiar with the matter said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision to open commercial coal mining to private players is a key step towards bringing order to the country's chaotic power industry and ending the chronic blackouts that impede its economic rise. Nearly a quarter of a century after India embraced economic liberalisation, many businesses still rely on costly back-up generators for round-the-clock power and a third of its 1.2 billion people are still not connected to the grid. As of now, only Indian power, steel and cement companies can mine coal for their own consumption. Commercial mining is dominated by state-owned Coal India Ltd. But the government now plans to allow companies like Rio Tinto India to mine coal ...

Fears for tough penalties grow as India cleans up business 23.10.2014 Asian Age: Business
Cleaning up India's grubby business climate is top of the agenda An unprecedented ban on India's largest property developer from tapping capital markets has fuelled expectations of tougher penalties ahead, as the country's regulators feel emboldened to take on even companies long sheltered by political connections. The result has been a slide over the past week in shares of firms known to be under investigation -- adding to what was already a year-long weakness in the stocks of companies seen as tied to the Congress party, which was ousted from power in May. Cleaning up India's grubby business climate is top of the agenda for both regulators and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, which was elected in May partly on a promise to do just that. India ranks 94th among 177 nations in the global corruption index published by Transparency International. "If you are in a business which depends on government largesse, then questions will be asked," said Avinash Vazirani, a London-based manager with the ...

Goa govt initiates clearance of mining leases for operations 23.10.2014 Asian Age: Business
The state mines department has moved a file clearing ten mining leases Panaji: The state mines department has moved a file clearing ten mining leases, initiating a major step to resume mining operations halted for last two years in Goa. The file clearing the proposal of ten mining leases has been moved to state mines secretary, a senior mines department official said. Five leases of Fomento Resources Group, three of Chowgule and Company Pvt Ltd and two of Agarwal Minerals Goa Pvt Ltd are being processed to operate, he said. The leases would be renewed by the state government under section 8(3) of Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act. The Supreme Court, which had lifted the ban on state's mining operations in April this year, had asked the Goa government to form a policy before allotting the leases. The Manohar Parrikar-led government had recently passed the Grant of Mining Leases Policy which had decided not to auction them (leases), but to hand them over to original operators once they ...
