Mahindra charged up on electric cars 25.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
With the government's ambitious plan to have all vehicles sold beyond the year 2032 to be electric, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), which has so far invested Rs 600 crore in the segment, aims to expand it in the next 2-4 years and has come up with plan EV 2.0. Though M&M's immediate plan for the electric segment is to develop vehicles for mass mobility, there is also a blueprint for developing high-end niche products at a later stage, which would primarily be for foreign markets. The company's push for electric vehicles (EVs) comes in the backdrop of government's push, which expects around 5 million units of electric vehicles to be sold in around next 15 years. As per a report released by Centre's think tank Niti Aayog earlier this month, the accelerated adoption of electric and shared vehicles could save about $60 billion in diesel and petrol costs while cutting down as much as 1 gigatonne (GT) of carbon emissions for India by 2030. This would result in an annual reduction of 156 million tonne in diesel and ...

Time for an 'Indian Belt and Road'? 19.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The recent official announcement that 'employment creation' would be the basis for evaluating the progress of governmental schemes, needs to be welcomed. The past three years have witnessed energetic action across several sectors. Stalled infrastructure projects have started moving. The drive for digital governance has speeded up the issuance and management of a variety of licences and permits. The 'Make in India' focus for reviving manufacturing has witnessed policy realignments regarding labour regulation, procurement process for governmental purchases etc. A revealed intent to promote technology via focus on indigenisation of defence goods is also evident. However, despite all these measures, the labour markets are not 'humming' whether measured in terms of campus placement experiences of our prestigious IITs or at the hearsay evidences of the graduates of our multivariate schools/universities. Undoubtedly, not just the rapidly transforming automation systems, but also the upward shifts of the quality ...

'MLA Somashekar misused Rs 100 cr grants ' 18.5.2017 deccanherald.com
BJP leader N R Ramesh on Thursday accused Congress MLA fromYeshwantpur S T Somashekar of misusing nearly Rs 100 crore grants released for improving villages around solid waste management plants. Irked by the 'baseless and malicious' allegations, Somashekar threatened to shut down all the waste-processing units in his constituency. At a press conference, Ramesh said Rs 98.2 crore was sanctioned for developing villages around the four waste- processing units at Kannahalli, Seegehalli, Subbarayanapalya and Lingadheeranahalli. He released documents pertaining to the works carried out using the funds for improving villages around the waste processing plants. "However, Somashekar spent 90% of the funds in areas at least 10 km away from these units. This was done despite roads and other civic infrastructure in the villages around the four units being in a bad shape due to round-the-clock movement of heavy vehicles carrying garbage from the city," said Ramesh. Reacting to the allegations, Somashekar said: ...

The latest ransomware WannaCry cyber attack across 150 countries has come as a wake-up call for the government and industries, which were hitherto hesitant to invest in software upgrades. "The IT industry is prepared for any such attacks, and it is less vulnerable, as generally IT companies choose the latest software, and update security patches," said Nasscom President R Chandrasekhar, adding that if you take other normal organisations, they should now start looking at cyber security as an important and essential feature. "Cyber security is not a luxury, it's absolutely essential and critical. It's a wake-up call for both the country and the economy," he added. When asked about its preparedness, Infosys said that it is constantly monitoring threats to its IT infrastructure.
