Polavaram faces new petition 21.11.2017
Rajahmundry: Work on the Polavaram project may hit a new hurdle on issue of environmental clearance. Hyderabad-based NGO Readiness for Empowerment through Legitimate Action (RELA) has stated that it will file a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court on the issue of environmental clearance. The National Green Tribunal had declined to intervene on a petition filed by RELA stating that the matter was sub-judice. A suit challenging the environmental clearance issued by the Union ministry of environment, forest and climate change and permissions granted by Central Ground Water Authority and Central Water Commission and other issues like relief and rehabilitation, was filed in Supreme Court in 2007. The case has been pending in the apex court. The Centre had given environmental clearance for the project on October 10, 2005, even though the mandatory public hearing in the affected areas of Odisha and Chhattis-garh was not held. An NGO called Academy for Mountain Environics challenged this before the ...

Wetland abuse caused Koramangala flooding 21.11.2017
Bengaluru: It's confirmed. The flooding that one of Bengaluru's prime localities, Koramangala saw during the recent monsoon with boats ferrying people to safety, was more man-made than a result of nature's fury. A study by scientists of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.) has blamed the concretisation of the storm water drains leading to the Agara-Bellandur lake in the area for much of the waterlogging  that left people stranded and their homes flooded. Worse, it says the construction work of the Karnataka Industrial Areas Develop ment Board (KIADB) in the upcoming Special Economic Zone nearby is also responsible. The research conducted by scientists TV Ramachandra, Vinay S and  Bharath H Aithal in October says the Agara-Bellandur lake, which once helped  retain rain water, in groundwater recharge and bio-remediation, has suffered greatly thanks to the KIADB's unbridled construction. On a field study along with the officials of KLCDA on May 1,  the scientists found ...

Guest column: Time to relook at our life-nourishing lakes 21.11.2017
The recent data published by the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) on the quality of water in our lakes  mirrors the sustainability crisis confronting our  city.  The board, which surveyed  over 50 lakes, found they had either no water or their water quality index was unsatisfactory. Of the lakes which had water, many were in the lowest Class "D" and "E" categories. For a city that once boasted of a 1000 lakes, this probably is a wake-up call it cannot afford to ignore. Poor planning, rampant encroachment and runaway corruption has resulted in this ghastly state of affairs. Unless we stop treating our lakes as dumping grounds, we will continue to contaminate our underground aquifers and endanger our open wells and borewells. But sadly, even with the addition of four new sewage treatment plants (STPs) of  136 million litres a day capacity, the city will be able to treat only 69 per cent of the sewage it generates. The rest will continue to end ...

Cement stocks crack on petcoke ban 20.11.2017 Business Standard: Companies & Industry
Share prices of cement companies fell sharply on Monday, on Friday's order of the Supreme Court reiterating the ban on use of petcoke in Delhi and the rest of the National Capital Region, to control pollution. The SC has clarified that the ban is applicable across Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, too.The SC also requested all states to enforce a nationwide ban on petcoke, the primary fuel and input material for cement makers. The share price of Shree Cement, whose dependence on petcoke is 100 per cent, fell by 4.2 per cent to Rs 17,529. JK Lakshmi Cement fell by 4.6 per cent to Rs 408.4, ACC by 3.4 per cent to Rs 1,706.3 and JK Cement by 5.2 per cent to Rs 1,024.5.And, there are other headwinds in the form of restriction on sand mining and other states also banning petcoke usage.According to Edelweiss Securities, the effect of the ban in Rajasthan would be to raise the cost of cement production by six to nine per cent a tonne and this is likely to be passed on to consumers in ...

Hyderabad: Groundwater faces '24x7 power' threat 20.11.2017
Hyderabad: The trial run of 24x7 free power supply to agriculture since November 6 has proved to be successful in all the districts but brought to light that farmers were utilising the benefit 24x7 raising concern over depletion of groundwater.  The trial run found that there is peak demand for power in the morning when majority of the farmers switch on their pumpsets. Speaking at a meeting with power officials on Sunday, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao said the use of auto-starters was the prime reason for pumpsets running 24x7. He directed officials to take up a special drive to remove auto starters from December 5. He also asked them to educate farmers on the adverse impact of using pumpsets round the clock just because the government is providing for free. The CM said if there is no groundwater, there would be no use in giving 24x7 free power to farmers. The government has been supplying round the clock power from the midnight of November 6  for 23 lakh pump sets on an experimental ...

PMK moves Madras High Court to shut all sand quarries 19.11.2017
Chennai: PMK MP and youth wing president Dr Anbumani Ramadoss has approached the Madras high court to direct the state government to close down all sand quarries across the state to save rivers, water bodies and farmers and consequently use alternative to sand in all the construction activities under the government projects. The First Bench comprising Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M. Sundar before whom the PIL filed by Anbumani Ramadoss came up for hearing, directed the state government to file its counter affidavit within 3 weeks and rejoinder if any, be filed within one week thereafter. In his petition, he also sought a direction to the state government to take appropriate action against illegal and unlawful mining activities in the state by setting up an expert committee under the guidance of a retired judge of Supreme court/high court to identify the lapses that have occurred from October 2003 onwards to eliminate the scope of middlemen in sand mining activities and sanitize mining ...
