Budget should have highlighted energy security issue: RK Pachauri 12.7.2014 DNA: Top News
Noted environmentalist RK Pachauri on Saturday said the Union Budget presented on June 10 should have highlighted the objectives of attaining higher energy security for India, lowering environmental pollution and tackling climate change. He said the Finance Minister should have highlighted the overall issue of energy security for India. "Should any geo-political developments in the region from where we import the bulk of our oil lead to say a 50% increase in oil prices. The effect on the economy could be disastrous," he said. "Hence, the Finance Minister could have highlighted the objectives of attaining higher energy security, lowering environmental pollution and tackling global climate change through measures to attain higher energy efficiency, greater use of non-fossil energy sources and reducing the rate of growth in demand through promoting public transport and energy efficient buildings," he added. Pachauri, who is the chairman of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was speaking at a ...

Improves on closer reading 10.7.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
As far as I am concerned, the tensions in the pre-budget days this year were similar to the level of excitement generated before the Brazil-Germany semi-final. While the football game result came as a shock to everyone, the budget speech was no less of a shock to me. Note, I say the budget speech, as opposed to the budget. The finance minister was, often, inarticulate and, most importantly, never laid out the thought process that had gone behind the budget. It was necessary to do so because there were enough pre-budget tremors warning us of having to tighten our belts to revive the economy. In other words, everyone was expecting to be told what the new government's plan is to bring the economy back on track and how this budget is the first step in the implementation of that plan. The finance minister, unfortunately, did not describe, even in passing, what the plans were and fell back on the established and boring template of listing all the 100 crore ideas that the ministry has come up with, mixed up ...
