Set up alternative industry, Arcelor Mittal told 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Minister for Heavy and Medium Industries RVDeshpande said on Saturday that steel major Arcelor Mittal had been told to send a proposal for setting up an alternative industry in the district.

This is due to the Supreme Court direction that only companies already having steel plants could take part in the ore auction process.

He was speaking to reporters after the Ballari industry summit at Malpangudi in the taluk.
The minister said the company had planned to set up a solar power plant. The matter would be discussed at the meeting of the high-level clearance committee, he said. The company had been advised to set up an industry that has more employment opportunities, Deshpande said.

Arcelor Mittal had been sanctioned 4,800 acres near Ballari for a steel plant at the Global Investors Meet in 2010. Of this, the firm had been handed over 2,796 acres.

Bihar power shock: BERC increases electricity tariffs by 55% 24.3.2017 Business Standard: News Now
After three years, the power tariffs delivered a big shock in Bihar. The Bihar Electricity Regulatory Commission (BERC) approved an unprecedented 55 per cent increase in electricity tariff. The hike is expected to boost distribution companies' kitty by Rs. 4,700 crore. From the next month onwards, the consumers would now have to shell out Rs. 2.75 to Rs. 3.65 per unit more under the approved tariff for the next fiscal. "The DISCOMs have proposed overall hike of about 84 per cent in the tariff for FY 2017-18, whereas we have approved overall increase of about 55 per cent without taking state government's subsidy into account," said BERC chairman S K Negi. "However, if the state government extends subsidy support to BPL and rural consumers as agreed in the Ujjwal DISCOM Assurance Yojna (UDAY), the increase may come down to around 28 per cent only," he added. However, even after the adjustment of subsidy into the revised tariff, it would still be sharpest ever increase in the power ...
