Palamuru project K Chandrasekhar Rao's next target 30.8.2019
Hyderabad: After completing the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation scheme in a record three years, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has now decided to take up the Palamuru-Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation Scheme (PLIS) as a prestige issue and set a deadline of one year for its completion. He wants the PLIS to be ready before the start of the next Kharif season for the project. Mr Rao, along with his ministers, on Thursday conducted an aerial survey of the Karvena, Vattem and Narlapur reservoirs to inspect the ongoing works and reviewed the progress of works with the officials, engineers and agencies concerned. Mr Rao had laid the foundation stone for the Palamuru-Ranga Reddy lift irrigation project on June 11, 2015, making it the first major irrigation project to be taken up after the formation of TS. While inspecting the Karvena reservoir, he instructed engineers and contract agencies to take up construction on a war-footing basis and have works implemented on 24/7 basis given the significant role the Karvena ...

Ignoring Centre’s advice, Andhra issues multi-crore tenders for Polavaram project 18.8.2019
New Delhi: The Jagan Mohan Reddy ruled Andhra Pradesh government has issued notifications for Rs 4,900 crore worth of tenders for projects linked to the multi-crore Polavaram irrigation scheme, despite a letter from the centre advising against it and expressing concern over increased costs and delays to the project. The notifications have been issued for a hydel project worth Rs. 3,100 crore and a headworks project worth Rs. 1,800 crore, reported NDTV. Costing close to Rs 58,000 crores, the Polavaram irrigation scheme is a mega project on the Godavari River and is one of the most expensive ever undertaken by any state alone.

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 ...
