The Electricity Supply Companies (ESCOMs), including Bescom, will soon draw up the schedule for load shedding, Law Minister T B Jayachandra told reporters after the Cabinet meeting. The minister said the State is currently facing about 3,000 mega watt (MW) of power shortage as against the total requirement of 8,000 MW. The severe shortage is mainly due to failure of south-west monsoon rainfall and outages in Udupi Power Corporation Ltd and Ballari Thermal Power Station in recent days. Power generation at major hydel power generating stations of Linganamakki, Mani and Supa has come down drastically due to decline in water level. The ...

Centre lets land ordinance lapse, Opposition parties claim victory 30.8.2015 deccanherald.com
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday announced that the controversial land acquisition ordinance would be allowed to lapse on Monday. This was viewed as an attempt to blunt the "anti-farmer" tag the Opposition has been politically cashing in on ahead of the Bihar Assembly polls. In the absence of the ordinance re-promulgated thrice with some amendments that hit the Opposition wall, the UPA-drafted Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act of 2013 will become effective. Opposition leaders hailed the rollback announcement as a victory at the JD(U)-RJD-Congress coalition's Swabhiman rally in Patna on Sunday. Modi, however, on his Mann Ki Baat radio programme defended his government's proposal to amend certain provisions of the 2013 Act. "I decide that (the land acquisition) ordinance we issued should be allowed to lapse on August 31 because I noted misinformation (about the changes) was spread to such an extent that it created fear and confusion ...
