Gujarat: Equipment quality, enrolling farmers risks for KUSUM scheme 14.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Quality of solar pumps and getting farmers on board are the two key risks for the success of the net-metered solar pumps, according to an analysis by Greenpeace India, Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) and IWMI-Tata Water Policy Program. The analysis, which was released at a conference earlier this week, showed that India could surpass its solar power target of 100 GW by 2022 if solar pumps were to replace traditional water pumps in farms. It said that while the 60 GW target for large-scale solar power projects is on track, the 40 GW target for roof-top solar is still to gather momentum, and as of March, only 2.4 GW roof-top capacity had been installed. While talking about several benefits the solar pumps could provide, the analysis identified the quality of solar pumps and maintenance as a key potential risk for the success of net-metered solar pumps. Incidentally, the central government had recently launched KUSUM (Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthan Mahaabhiyan) scheme to promote ...

Despite Centre, Maharashtra crackdown, 75,000 daily wage sand miners work without safety measures 13.8.2018 DNA: India
Raghunath Bartade watched helplessly as his brother was dragged off the sand-mining boat, his leg tangled in the anchor rope and his arms flailing as he sank into the murky creek near Mumbai. Moments earlier, Raghunath and Babban Bartade had been dredging sand by hand from the bottom of the creek - an often deadly trade that fuels the nation’s booming construction industry, and continues despite an official crackdown. "We found his body within minutes," said Bartade, adding that he has witnessed several incidents of drowning since he began mining sand 13 years ago. "The miners usually drift away in the water and their body surfaces days later," he said, standing outside his hut in Bharatpada village in Palghar district adjoining Mumbai on a rainy afternoon with his brother's children hovering close by. Babban's death in June came a year after a Thomson Reuters Foundation investigation revealed workers were drowning while illegally mining sand in Vasai Creek, one of the two main distributaries of the ...
