Telangana: PAC slams officials over delay in projects 23.6.2017
Hyderabad: The Public Accounts Committee, the premier body that is constitutionally entitled to scrutinise public expenditure, on Thursday pulled up agencies working in city development projects for delays. The PAC, headed by senior Congress MLA Dr J. Geetha Reddy, joined by BJP MLA and state party president Dr K. Laxman, faulted civic officials for giving lame excuses. On potholes, GHMC commissioner B. Janardhan Reddy said repairs could only be done in phases. All roads could not be repaired at the same time; in areas prone to water logging, repairs may have to be done several times, he said. Water and Sewerage Board, the electricity department, and private companies dig up roads citing emergencies, he said. He admitted that only half the repairs had been done and the monsoon has already set in. Dr Geetha Reddy said that since the government has stated that there is no dearth of funds, it seems that a lack of proper planning is the root cause of the problem. It was suggested that cement roads be built ...

Pre-monsoon rain exposes poor sewerage 22.6.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, June 21 Pre-monsoon rain in Jammu has exposed the much-hyped underground sewerage system laid under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission as overflowing manholes spilled dirty water on the roads. The project executed by the National Building Construction Corporation and the Economic Reconstruction Agency has been facing problems from the onset. Jammu received about 47 mm of rain during the past 24 hours which led to waterlogging in several low-lying areas of the city despite functional sewerage line. Residents in several localities in the city demanded investigation against the executing agencies for the flaws in the system. Problem was more acute in localities around the New Plot-Janipur area where water was overflowing on the roads creating problems for residents. The initial work on the sewerage system was started in 2007 but since then it has jumped several deadlines, with allegations of corruption and nepotism in allotment of projects compromising ...

Go-green plan mooted for thirsty thermal power units 22.6.2017
Hyderabad: The country has seen an increase in the number of coal-based thermal power plants — one of the most environmentally damaging forms of power generation. In addition to the fly ash problem, these power plants also require large amounts of water, a scarce commodity in India. The Central government has estimated that thermal power plants generate about 950 billion units annually, which requires about 2800 million cubic metres (around 7700 MLD) of water. To generate one unit power, three litres of water are required. The power ministry has estimated that the requirement of water is likely to grow to 12000 MLD by the year 2026-27. Recently, the Telangana State government has allotted 6.5 TMC of water from the Krishna River every year for the 4000 MW Yadadri thermal power station proposed to be set up at Damaracherla in Nalgonda district. At the same time, for the 4000 MW power plant of the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) at Ramagundam, the government has allotted 60 cusecs of ...
