With only two days to go in winter session of Parliament, fate of Insurance, coal bills hangs in balance 20.12.2014 DNA: Mumbai
With only two working days left in the winter session of parliament, the fate of the government's economic reform agenda, particularly the Insurance Bill and the Coal Bill, hangs in balance in view of strong opposition by some parties. The Insurance Bill, which provides for raising FDI cap from 26% to 49%, could not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha due to disruptions even though it was listed on four days last week. Proceedings of Rajya Sabha, during the entire last week, were washed out as opposition stalled the House by pressing the demand that Prime Minister Narendra Modi reply to a debate on religious conversions. The Coal Bill, which will pave the way for auctioning of mines de-allocated by the Supreme Court, also remained pending in the House. Lok Sabha has already passed it.

India looks to sway Americans with nuclear power insurance plan 20.12.2014 Asian Age: India
Prime Minister Narendra Modi with US President Barack Obama (Photo: AP) India is offering to set up an insurance pool to indemnify global nuclear suppliers against liability in the case of a nuclear accident, in a bid to unblock billions of dollars in trade held up by concerns over exposure to risk. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government is hoping the plan will be enough to convince major US companies such as General Electric to enter the Indian market ahead of President Barack Obama's visit at the end of next month. Under a 2010 nuclear liability law, nuclear equipment suppliers are liable for damages from an accident, which companies say is a sharp deviation from international norms that put the onus on the operator to maintain safety. From the 1950s, when the United States was the only exporter of nuclear reactors, liability has been channelled to plant operators across the world. India's national law grew out of the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster, the world's deadliest industrial accident, at a factory ...
