Maharashtra's Pune is best city to live, Delhi ranks 65 in Ease of Living Index 14.8.2018 DNA: Money
Maharashtra's Pune, Navi Mumbai and Greater Mumbai are the top three cities, while New Delhi ranks a lowly 65 in an Ease of Living Index released by the Central government here on Monday. While four cities of Maharashtra (Thane is the sixth) are in the top 10, the national capital's ranking is a cause for concern, but not a surprise given various reasons, including extremely poor air quality.        Uttar Pradesh's Rampur has fared the worst in the 111-city survey whose findings were released by Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri. The capital cities of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are also in the top 10. Madhya Pradesh's Indore is there, too. Among the Union Territories, Chandigarh is the only city to have made the top 10 cut, in a first-of-its-kind exercise based on four parameters — governance, social institutions, economic and physical infrastructure. Andhra Pradesh's Tirupati and Vijayawada are in the top 10, too. Apart from the top three, the next seven cities ...

Is feasibility study for Kandi Road not contempt of court: NTCA to Wildlife Institute of India 13.8.2018 DNA: Money
The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) sought a clarification from the Wildlife Institute of India (WII), another environment ministry body, on how it is carrying out a feasibility study for the Kandi Road proposed through Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve despite the Supreme Court prohibiting that alignment in 2005. The NTCA pointed out that since both the SC and Uttarakhand High Court had passed orders against the current alignment, it might be a contempt of their orders. The WII, an autonomous body under the Environment Ministry, signed an MoU with National Buildings Construction Corporation to prepare a feasibility report on the Kandi Road project. The alignment that passes through Corbett Tiger Reserve would cut down the distance between Garhwal and Kumaon by 80 km. Currently, the project is also facing litigation in the National Green Tribunal and it had issued a show-cause notice to Uttarakhand government over its approval for the road. The NTCA has also pointed out that as per the Wildlife ...

'Indians may live 4 yrs longer if country achieves WHO air quality standards' 13.8.2018 DNA: India
Indians would live for about four years longer on an average if the country meets the WHO's air quality standards, according to a new study. Noting that ambient air pollution alone may cost India more than USD 0.5 trillion per year, it said it is causing hundreds of millions of people in the country to lead shorter and sicker lives. A group of researchers have proposed a slew of measures to overcome the issue that includes applying monetary charges for excess emissions. Indians would be able to live for about four years longer on an average if the country meets the WHO's air quality standards, the study said. Under the World Health Organisation quality standards, fine particulate matter (PM2.5) should be 10 g/m3 annual mean and 25 g/m3 24-hour mean while the coarse particulate matter (PM10) 20 g/m3 annual mean and 50 g/m3 24-hour mean. To help improve India's air quality, researchers from the University of Chicago and Harvard Kennedy School have laid out five key evidence-based policy recommendations in ...
