Telangana, Andhra Pradesh stick to stated stand on split issues 18.6.2019
Hyderabad: The Chief Ministers of the two Telugu states, K. Chandrasekhar Rao and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, are trying to resolve long-pending issues rela-ted to the AP Reorganis-ation Act. The governments of Telangana and AP have repeatedly said in the past that they will co-operate with each other in solving the issues arising out of bifurcation of the erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh. But five years on, there has been no movement. The issues include asset sharing of institutions listed in the 9th and 10th Schedule of the AP Reorganisation Act, sharing of Krishna and Godavari water, and power arrears dispute continuing because both states have stuck to their arguments. To resolve these issues, some compromise is necessary but neither state will adopt a give and take policy. For example, the AP government wants the assets of AP Bhavan in Delhi to be shared in a ratio of 58:42. But the TS government says AP has no right to ask for a share in AP Bhavan since it was constructed in the time of the Nizams and not ...

South India had worst pre-monsoon 10.6.2019
Hyderabad: South India is facing the highest deficit of rainfall in the pre-monsoon in the country. SkyMet, a private weather forecaster, said in its report that South Indian states are facing 47 per cent rain deficit which is the highest in the country. The pre-monsoon lasts from March to May As per the records of SkyMet, these disquieting figures are similar to 2009 when the country witnessed a drought. The other divisions of the country, the North-west, Central, East, and Northeast recorded deficit of 30, 18 and 14 per cent respectively. As per the report, this year has been the second driest pre monsoon season in the last 65 years; the lowest before this was in 2012 when nationwide rainfall deficiency had mounted to 31 per cent. "Pre-monsoon rains in 2019 have performed the same as in 2009 where 25 per cent lag was noted in both the years. The prominent similarities between the two years are that they have been El Nino years. Thus, rains have been reacting in a somewhat identical ...

Pak economic growth expected to hit 3.3 pc, well below target of 6.3 pc: Survey 9.6.2019
Islamabad: Pakistan's economic growth in the financial year ending in June is expected to hit 3.3 per cent, well below the target of 6.3 per cent, as the government failed to meet targets in nearly all sectors, according to the Economic Survey. The details of the Economic Survey of 2018-19, scheduled to be officially released a day before the next year's budget on June 11, were published by Dawn on Sunday. The survey indicates that livestock is the only sector whose growth went slightly above the official target while all other sectors performed below expectation, the report said. A sharp decline was witnessed in the industrial sector that registered a growth of 1.4 per cent against the target of 7.6 per cent despite the fact that power generation witnessed an increase as several power plants and other power sector projects were completed. Also, the manufacturing sector slid by 0.3 per cent and the large scale manufacturing (LSM) showed a negative growth of 2 per cent against the target 8.1 per ...

What saved India from the devastating effects of cyclone Fani 6.6.2019
Mangroves are incredibly productive coastal ecosystems found in the tropics and subtropics. These dense green forests are known for their bizarre-looking roots that poke up into the air from shallow water. Among the meshed webs of roots are fish nurseries, enabling humans to make a living from the marine life in and around the mangroves. Mangroves also play another important role for humans, protecting communities from major storms. Climate change is more than rising temperatures, and the increased frequency and intensity of cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons are apparent. Cyclone Fani for example, which recently struck the Bay of Bengal, was one of the strongest to devastate India in the past 20 years. Mangrove roots can break up the force of a storm surge, soaking up some of its energy and protecting people living on coasts from cyclone damage. Yet it is a challenge to effectively value and protect individual mangrove ecosystems. And we just don"t have the people or funds to deliver detailed ...
