Refer to new data for Coastal Regulation Zone maps: Gujarat activist 8.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
While attending an environmental public hearing with affected villagers, in Dholera on deciding on the mapping for Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notification, state activists have said that Gujarat's mapping is based on old data and is severely flawed. The mapping is done to decide which region falls under what category as per the notification. The category under which an area falls decides what sort of economic activities will be allowed there. Rohit Prajapati of Paryavaran Suraksha Samiti said that during the hearing, it was brought to the officials' notice that they were trying to get the mapping done on the basis of 2011 data. "The problem with deciding on the basis of old data is that a lot of changes happen on the ground and this will not be reflected. We have sought that the maps be made on the basis of 2018 data," said Prajapati. Giving an example of why old data will not work he said that Mandvipura village is one such village that has been gobbled up by the sea. "Now if the map was to be made ...

China vows retaliation if Donald Trump slaps 25% tariff on $200 billion of Chinese imports 1.8.2018 DNA: Top News
China said on Wednesday that "blackmail" wouldn't work and that it would hit back if the United States takes further steps hindering trade , as the Trump administration considers slapping a 25 percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. The proposal would increase the potential tariff rate from 10 percent the administration had initially put forward on July 10 for that wave of duties in a bid to pressure Beijing into making trade concessions, a source familiar with the plan said on Tuesday. The tariffs target thousands of Chinese imports, including food products, chemicals, steel and aluminum and consumer goods ranging from dog food, furniture and carpets to car tires, bicycles, and baseball gloves and beauty products. While the duties would not be imposed until after a period of public comment, raising the proposed level to 25 percent would escalate the already bitter trade dispute between the world's two biggest economies. The source said President Donald Trump's administration could ...
