Paving the way for EV revolution 20.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
When two entrepreneurs started the first electric cab service in Bengaluru, investment gurus were skeptical about its success. Sanjay Krishnan and Ashwin Mahesh, who started Lithium Urban Technologies to give a pollution-free and environment-friendly transportation solution, are now happy that their endeavour is finding more takers in Bengaluru and elsewhere in the country. Lithium started service in Bengaluru in 2015 with just 10 cabs, and has now expanded to 10 cities with around 500 vehicles in its ambit. It started its journey when there was no electric power charging stations. "It was a challenge to begin operations in Bengaluru as the infrastructure was not up to the mark. We started off with the corporate transportation opportunity and firmed up our business model around it," Krishnan says. Lithium is looking at technology to serve better. "Besides providing convenience, safety, and security to the passenger, technology should give public transportation ease of access, must provide safety, and ...

Congress, BJP trade charges over defence deals 14.11.2017 Latest News
New Delhi, 14 NovemberThe Congress party on Tuesday alleged that "a huge scam was brewing" in the procurement of the Dassault Rafale fighter jets for the Indian Air Force. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) dismissed the allegations.

He said the arms deal smacked of "non-transparency and flagrant violation of mandatory provisions of the 'Defence Procurement Procedure'". The Congress leader demanded the Centre break its "conspiratorial silence" to clarify the "grave apprehensions" on the deal. He said the Centre renegotiated the deal in 2015, originally signed by the UPA2 government, ...

State's cultural institutions on terminal neglect: reveals survey 10.11.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Despite the tag of being the progressive state, Karnataka has failed to nourish its cultural institutions that stand as a symbol of its proud history, charges a recent report. Karnataka Knowledge Commission held a need-gap analysis of ten prominent art and cultural institutions such as Karnataka Sahitya Academy, Karnataka Lalithakala Academy and the Venkatappa Art Gallery and found to its chagrin that the towering centres lacked even the most basic things like skilled staff, infrastructure and specialized training. The 17 government-run museums, for instance, received a consolidated investment of Rs 37 lakh. The academies, including the Department of Kannada and Culture, have no presence in social media. Those managing the institutions are not in the government payroll and their meager salaries only discouraged them from improving the standards. Nearly 15 employees in all academies have been working for 25 years without monitory benefit besides their barely manageable salaries, the survey has ...
