Banks may take Rs 2.4 L cr haircut to settle bad loans 19.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Business
Banks are likely to take a haircut (write-off) of Rs 2.4 lakh crore, or 60% of bad loans to settle 50 large stressed assets with debt of Rs 4 lakh crore. These 50 companies are from the metals (30% of total debt), construction (25%), and power (15%) sectors, and account for half of the Rs 8 lakh crore of the non-performing assets (NPAs) in the banking system as on March 31, 2017, according to ratings agency CRISIL. CRISIL estimates that banks have provisioned for about 40% of this exposure. "We used the economic value approach to assess the haircuts," Pawan Agrawal, Chief Analytical Officer, CRISIL Ratings said. "This is a combination of market value multiples and cash flow estimation. The final haircut, however, will also be influenced by the expectation of lenders, valuation of subsidiaries, and the price outlook for commodity-linked sectors," he said. The sources of stress are policy or demand (power plants), lower capacity utilisation (steel plants), and over-leveraged balance sheets (construction ...

Waiting time at many signals now reflects actual traffic flow 14.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The traffic police have introduced adaptive signal lights at 35 intersections in the first phase of the project. Vehicle Actuated Adaptive Signals (VAAS) can detect traffic flow in real time and adjust the red or green lights accordingly. "The camera-based sensors in VAAS visually measure the number of vehicles on the road and the waiting time will be adjusted automatically," said R Hithendra, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic). The signal cameras capture traffic density at junctions and transmit it to sensor lights. The cameras will also calculate the queue of vehicles and change the duration of the traffic lights accordingly. "Adaptive signals will reduce the need for manual intervention by police at traffic junctions and commuters will also benefit from the reduced wait at traffic signals," he added. The road with the heaviest traffic will be given priority over other lanes. This will ensure even distribution of traffic at signals. The VAAS project is on trial on the outskirts of the city. ...

A multi-purpose drone has been developed by Avinash Rao, a resident of Nidle village of Belthangady taluk in Dakshina Kannada district. The drone, which has received four patents, not only saves areca nut trees from getting infected by pests, but also paints tall buildings with 10 to 15 floors.
