China-India talks: Border rows, railways likely topics during Xi Jinping's visit 17.9.2014 DNA: Popular News
Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in India on Wednesday as the two Asian giants take steps to boost commercial ties. China has pledged to invest billions of dollars in Indian railways, industrial parks and roads, but ties between the nuclear-armed nations have long been held back by distrust, mostly over their contested border. Here are some facts about India-China relations and issues likely to come up for discussion: BORDER DISPUTE China beat India in a brief border war in 1962 and relations have remained sour over their still-disputed 3,500-km (2,200-mile) frontier. India has reported a rise in incursions by Chinese troops in recent years, charges China denies. Modi is expected to take a tougher stance with neighbouring countries, including China. In the first such signal, Modi's government eased restrictions on building roads and military facilities along the border to boost defence preparedness and close the gap on China's superior transport network. VISAS China often refuses to stamp visas on ...

How the closing of uranium mine in Jaduguda will impact nuclear power output 16.9.2014 DNA: Mumbai
The closure of Jaduguda mine of Uranium Corporation of India Ltd (UCIL) is set to impact nuclear power generation in the country, an official of the company has said. "The Jaduguda mine is closed since September 7 and it is already seven days shortage of uranium. Nuclear power plants will get affected if the situation perists," UCIL Chairman and Managing Director D Acharya told PTI.
