PM Modi to speak on India's plans for renewable energy at UN summit 23.9.2019
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to articulate his government's ambitions on renewable energy and make a call for a coalition for disaster resilient infrastructure at UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres' High-Level Climate Action Summit on Monday. PM Modi is among the first set of speakers at the Summit's opening ceremony, a highly significant gesture given that only those Heads of State, Government and Ministers are invited to speak at the summit that will have any "positive development" to announce on climate action. India's important role and contribution to global climate action efforts have been underlined by the fact that PM Modi is the fourth speaker at the Summit, after UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and President of Marshall Islands Hilda Heine. German Chancellor Angela Merkel will speak after PM Modi. India's important role and contribution to global climate action efforts have been underlined ...

Houston/New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asserted that the government"s move to "bid farewell to Article 370" was to end discrimination and terrorism.

Despite Saudi turmoil, fresh global oil shock unlikely 22.9.2019
New York: The past week"s sudden surge in oil prices brought to mind the nightmare of shortages, but it's not too likely motorists will be queuing to fill up around the world, analysts say. All it took was a September 14 strike on key oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia to abruptly leave the world"s main supplier producing just half its normal amount. That sent the price of Brent crude flying 15 per cent higher in a single day. The price on a barrel of crude has come back down since then and by Friday was trading around USD 65. Given the slowdown in the global economy and the abundance of crude produced worldwide, the prospect of a USD100 barrel, for now, doesn't look too likely. "In essence, the world is far better equipped to handle oil shocks than it was in the "70s," explained Harry Tchilinguirian, the head of commodity research at BNP Paribas. In 1973, after an embargo by the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) against Israel's allies in ...

Kamal Haasan's MNM not to contest Oct 21 bypolls to 2 assembly segments in TN 22.9.2019
Chennai: Dubbing the October 21 bypolls to two Assembly segments in Tamil Nadu as a "corrupt political drama" by the AIADMK and DMK and a "power struggle," between them, Makakl Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan on Sunday said his party would not contest the byelections. The Haasan-led party, which its electoral debut in the Lok Sabha polls months ago and secured the third slot in a number of seats, said it does not want to be part of "this corrupt political drama in the name of byelections to Nanguneri and Vikravandi." In a statement here, party president Kamal Haasan said "it is very apparent that the byelections will be nothing more than a power struggle between the ruling party and the one which governed earlier to retain their power and positions they have." The actor-politician said MNM is rapidly working towards getting the support of the people of Tamil Nadu and "to form the government in 2021, thereby removing the old, redundant political parties and ...

Corporate tax cut: Is it half full or half empty? 22.9.2019
The corporate world revels in great glory ever since the corporate tax cut announcements made by finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman in what could be called the "mini-budget". The government slashed the corporate tax rate from 30 per cent to 22 per cent for all companies so that their effective rate came down to 25.17 per cent. Earlier in July, the government had reduced the tax rates to 25 per cent for companies having turnover less than Rs 400 crore. This budget proposal has become irrelevant by the new tax cuts for all companies. The new base rate, 22 per cent, is less than that of US, China, Japan and Korea. When we consider the recent fiscal announcements of the government, perhaps none are as important as this corporate tax cut because of its huge cost. The revenue forgone on account of this decision is Rs 1.45 lakh crore which is equal to one fifth of the projected corporate tax collections. This will increase the fiscal pressure of the government enormously. The government"s ...
