Diesel deregulated, price falls 19.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The Centre on Saturday lifted control on diesel prices and hiked natural gas tariff by 46 per cent with an aim to usher in reforms in the petroleum and natural gas sector. With this, the price of diesel will come down by Rs 3.64 per litre effective Saturday midnight in Bangalore and will cost Rs 60.43. The price move is in tandem with international prices from the next month. Hike in natural gas prices, however, will increase fertilizer, PNG, CNG and gas-based electricity tariffs. After deregulation, the government will no longer provide subsidy on diesel. "Henceforth, like petrol, pricing of diesel will be market determined," Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told reporters. There are apprehensions that if the crude prices go up in the international market, the consumers will have to pay more for the fuel. Brent crude in international market has fallen 25 per cent this year to around $83 per barrel and expectation is that it may not cross $100 a barrel anytime soon. This will be the first reduction in ...

Monsoon flooding, an annual feature here 19.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The first thing that strikes you about Chickpet, Avenue Road and Balepet areas is that they are the most important trading markets in the ''city'' part of Bangalore, as opposed to the Cantonment area. You would think of jewellery, saris, textiles, aluminium, hardware and the like. But during rainy season, all you would think of would be narrow roads, congestion, heavy traffic, drainages full of muck and leaking water that puts off both traders and customers. More than the traffic and congestion, it is the drainage system here that bothers traders. The underground drain connections have been built almost 50-70 years back. While the surface areas around the manholes have been repaired to an extent, lot remains to be done in the underground networks. Avenue Road Commercial Association president G V Sridhar says the rainy season is really bad for the place. "The entire area is flooded with water that gushes into shops. Owners have had to spend whole days to remove water from their inundated shops. If the ...

BWSSB needs to speed up work 19.10.2014 deccanherald.com
A major section of drainage system in Bangalore, the Koramangala and Challaghatta valley (K&C) needs immediate attention in being cleared as roads get flooded with water and waste in the Bangalore south. In 2008, with the objective of achieving zero sewage flow in the storm water drains, BWSSB launched the Environment Action Plan (EAP). Under the project, new sewer mains were to be laid at the four major valleys in the City - Hebbal, Vrushabhavathi, Koramangala and Chalaghatta (K&C). Pipelines measuring 100 to 1,600 mm were to be laid to ensure that sewage flows in these lines and not away from any storm water drain. As per the updated status of these projects, of the 67.8 kms, nearly 51.3 kms of work has been completed spending Rs 253.4 crore of the total Rs 367 crore. But the major work of laying 1,600 mm dia pipelines over a distance of 4.8 kms from the National Games Village to the K&C valley is yet to be awarded. The work estimated at Rs 100 crore will also have a sewage pumping station and laying ...
