KCR's words enable encroachers 15.10.2019
Hyderabad: The government"s proposal to scrap Government Order 111, which creates a 10-km pollution-free zone around the Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, has resulted in rampant encroachment of the channels that bring water to the two reservoirs. Though successive governments have systematically damaged the reservoirs" infrastructure, the present dispensation has decided to bring the axe down on GO 111 claiming it was hindering development in the area. Cutting across party lines, almost every politician, industrialist and businessman owns establishments in violation of GO 111. Due to the damage to the inlet channels caused by the encroachments, the two reservoirs, created a century ago to prevent floods and provide drinking water to the city, did not receive any water though the state received heavy rainfall this season. Officials of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board claimed that they had cleared the feeder channels between March and May. The lakes did not get water as ...

Srisailam reservoir opens gates 6th time in 2 months 14.10.2019
KURNOOL: Torrential rains in the past few days in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka states flooded the Srisailam reservoir necessitating lifting of four crest gates on Sunday. This is the sixth time that these gates have been opened in a span of two months. Srisailam dam Superintendent Engineer Chandrasekhar Rao said that historically the month of October often sees floods in Srisailam upto October 14. "We are geared up for any eventuality," he said. Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, he said that the Central Water Commiss-ion"s alerts for the day did not warrant any continuous flood as it was localised and the trend was falling. He said rains between Narayanpur dam and Jurala on the Krishna river, and rains near Mantralayam on the Tungabhadra in the past few days had chiefly contributed to the fresh bout of floods that filled the reservoir to the brim. Water in the reservoir recorded 884.80 feet against the total reservoir height of 885 feet. The present storage capacity is 214.8450 tmc against ...

Foodgrain output at 140.5 million tonne in FY20 on monsoon boost 8.10.2019
Mumbai: With the best monsoons in 25 years, the overall food grain production is expected to increase marginally by 8.4 million tonne from the average output in the past five years at 140.57 million tonne in 2019 -20, says a report. The monsoons have been normal or excess in 84 percent of the regions, while the rest of the regions getting insufficient rainfalls, the National Bulk Handling Corporation (NBHC) said in a report Monday. Production of monsoon-sown food grains is expected to be 140.57 mt in 2019-20, up by 8.4 mt from average output in the past five years, it added. The report said total rice is expected to show marginal improvement in sown area by 2.80 percent as farmers have shifted 20-25 percent of their crop areas from non- basmati rice to basmati in Punjab due to the higher export demand last year. "Receding waters in the flood-affected regions of Bihar, Odisha and Karnataka have helped recover the areas under paddy but delayed in sowing, which is likely to lower the yield by 2.58 ...
