After 10 years, underground neutrino lab remains on paper 25.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
In the early 1990s when the government closed down the Kolar gold mine due to financial non-viability, a group of young physicists was disappointed. They were studying the cosmic rays in the underground laboratory and the results created ripples internationally. Notwithstanding the unhappiness, they accepted the reality and continued their work. Three decades down the line, several of those scientists — now at the fag end of their career — are once again feeling dejected with the March 20 decision of the southern bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that asked the scientists to keep the India-based Neutrino Observatory's "environmental clearance" in abeyance because of the proposed site's (at Theni district of Tamil Nadu) proximity to Mathikettan Shola National Park in Idukki district of Kerala. The tribunal's decision came as a death blow for the Rs 1,500 crore INO project that experienced several hurdles in the last 10 years. Even assuming that the government found out a way to ...

Maharashtra government seeks clarity on cost of power from Jaitapur N-plant 25.4.2017 DNA: Top News
The Maharashtra state government has sought clarity from French officials and the French company EDF on the cost of power produced from the Jaitapur nuclear power plant. It has even said that it will purchase power from the project only if it is affordable, said government officials. The state has made its stand clear last week during the meeting between Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and a delegation led by Alexandre Ziegler, the French envoy. The state government's position on the power purchase is revealing as work on the proposed nuclear power plant is yet to begin even after years of protest from local farmers and fishermen. The Jaitapur nuclear power plant is proposed to have a 9,900MW capacity, making it the world's biggest nuclear power park once operational. As per the original agreement on the nuclear plant, the state government was to get 3,000 MW from the plant. But, with several delays and cost overruns, the state government does not want to buy power at an exorbitant cost. During the ...
