ACC takes 16 months to decline whistleblower Sanjeev Chaturvedi's cadre deputation to Delhi 25.6.2016 DNA: Popular News
After three directives by the court, sixteen months of struggle, IFS officer Sanjeev Chaturvedi's inter cadre deputation request to the Delhi government has been declined by the Appointments Committee of Cabinet. In an order dated June 21, the ACC rejected Chaturvedi's request to transfer from the Uttarakhand cadre to the government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi. Chaturvedi had been fighting to get his cadre changed for months and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal even wrote to the Ministry of Environment Forests and Climate Change in 2015 requesting Chaturvedi.  The ACC has rejected the inter cadre deputation on the basis of mandatory three-year cooling-off period that, it says, Chaturvedi has to fulfil on completion of his central deputation at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, which ends on June 28. The order also says that the Uttarakhand government had not granted Chaturvedi the No-Objection Certificate (NOC) he needed for the deputation. Interestingly, the order adds that ...

Cheap global gas, coal prices won't deter investment into renewables: Energy report 14.6.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
Weak coal and gas prices will not stop record investment in renewables over the coming decades as the cost of generating clean energy drops, a key energy report said. Renewables are set to attract $7.8 trillion (nearly Rs 518.9 lakh crore) by 2040, nearly four times as much as carbon-based power over the same period, the New Energy Outlook 2016 forecast said. The impact of cheap gas and coal will be offset, it projected, by drops of 41 and 60%, respectively, in the price of power from wind and solar panels. Compared to a year ago, the report projects "significantly lower" coal and gas prices, said Jon Moore, chief executive of Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the research unit which conducted the study. "But, strikingly, (the report) still shows rapid transition towards clean power." The shift, however, to a low-carbon energy sector will not happen quickly enough to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), much less the more ambitious goal embraced by the world's nations last ...
