Surat farmers object to land acquisition for bullet train 19.6.2018 DNA: Money
Over 200 farmers from across 15 villages around Surat staged a protest against the notification issued by the Centre for acquiring land for the bullet train project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. The farmers gave their objections in writing to the Surat district collectorate. The farmers came in tractors and motorcycles to list their 14 objections to the notifications. "It was not a protest. A notification for acquisition of land in Surat had asked for objections from the public and we had gone there to submit our objections," said Jayesh Patel, president Khedut Samaj Gujarat. He said the land acquisition is not as per the Land Acquisition Act of 2013 and that no environmental impact assessment (EIA) for the said land had been done. "Usually an EIA is done before such a notification is issued but in this case, this was not done," said Patel. He added that when land is to acquire for the public purpose the government needs to consult with local organizations and agencies. "But, this was not done in this ...

Jaipur Development Authority gets Rs 200 cr boost for Ring Road, but with rider 19.6.2018 DNA: Money
Land acquisition process for the 47km long southern corridor of the Ring Road will be completed in fixed time frame as Jaipur Development Authority enters new understanding with the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). The JDA, which had previously assigned Ring Road development to the highway authority, signed a revised memorandum of understanding with the NHAI on Monday that includes provision for an advance to compensate cost of acquisition of remaining parts of the corridor. Acquiring the remaining land had become a challenge for the JDA as much of it was commercial land requiring the authority to deposit the compensation amount in advance before acquiring the land. Faced with a cash crunch, the JDA had to seek an advance of Rs 200 crore from the NHAI.  The advance has arrived with time limit and interest. “The JDA will acquire the land within a month of receiving the amount,” said a JDA officer. “This amount shall subsequently be deducted from the amount that NHAI had to pay to JDA over next ...

I still can't take acting seriously: Johnny Depp 18.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Hollywood star Johnny Depp has revealed he suffers from "depression" for a short period of time after filming every project. The Pirates of the Caribbean  actor said he does not take acting "seriously" but he enjoys being in character because as a "shy person" he feels more comfortable to hide behind a different identity. "The concept of being a 'serious actor' is the biggest oxymoron... I still can't take acting seriously, but a bit of method is a useful thing. I'll never be the guy who plays Henry VIII and grabs a giant turkey leg while ignoring the packet of Doritos on the table, but I do jump in and out of character. "At the end of a production, there is always a period of depression, because I'm a shy person in life and in character I can be anything," Depp told The Times. The 55-year-old actor, who is currently touring with his band, The Hollywood Vampires, which also features Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, said success in films is still a ''mystery'' to him as he always wanted to be a musician. ''I ...

Want our approval for Bullet Train? Give us ponds, ambulances, solar lights, doctors: Palghar residents talk tough 18.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Ponds, ambulances, solar street lights and doctors are some of the demands villagers in Maharashtra's Palghar district want met before they give their nod to the government's ambitious bullet train project, say officials. Hoping to overcome the villagers' resistance, the National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHRCL), the nodal body to implement the project, has tweaked its strategy to ensure that the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train is on track for a 2022 launch and is agreeing to many of the conditions. Failing to make much headway through mass contact programmes in the 23 villages where it faced extreme resistance, the NHRCL, in a major change in stand, is approaching individual landowners for their demands in addition to the compensation they are due. "We have changed our stance. Earlier, we would gather villagers at village chowks to convince them of the good that the project would do. That did not work, so we have decided that we will now target landowners only and ask village heads to give in ...

In FY 2017-18, banks write off Rs 1,44,083 crore bad loans, 61% increase from last year 15.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Banks have written off Rs 1,44,093 crore bad loans in the 2017-2018 financial year – a 61.8% from Rs 89,048 crore in the previous year, the Indian Express reported on Friday. Of the write-off for 2017-18, Rs 1,20,165 crore (83.39%) loans were written off by public sector banks. Banks normally resort to write-offs in the case of loans which are in the doubtful recovery category. “It is technical in nature. It’s a book adjustment. When a bad loan is written off, it goes out of the books of the bank. The bank will also get tax benefits. However, the bank will continue the recovery measures even after the loan is written off,” said Pradeep Ramnath, former chairman and MD of Corporation Bank while speaking to the daily. The figures show that the State Bank of India wrote off Rs 40,281 crore in 2017-18, while fraud-hit PNB wrote off Rs 7,407 crore and Indian Overseas Bank Rs 10,307 crore. Besides, public sector banks suffered a loss of over Rs 87,000 crore in the fiscal year ended March 2018 owing to higher ...

Bleeding Telcos hang on to data 14.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
Meena, hailing from a remote village in Kolkata, is now addicted to video calls on her smartphone. From once a week ‘voice call’ back at home, she makes a ‘video call’ multiple times every day, taking advantage of the cheap data tariffs ushered in by the entry of a new player Reliance Jio (RJio). No wonder, the data consumption has hit the roof. The monthly data usage per smartphone (GB/month) in India expected to go up to 13.7 GB by 2023 from 5.7 GB in 2017. The total mobile data traffic per month in India is GB expected to grow five times during from 1.9 EB to 10 EB by 2023. The growth in data consumption has been a silver lining in an otherwise stressed telecom market hit hard by declining tariffs and intense competition. THE JIO EFFECT From 12 players to four, from a voice-centric market to a data driven one, and from a job creator to job losses, the once shining Indian telecom sector has undergone a drastic change over last year-and-a-half. And the trigger is none other than Mukesh Ambani’s new ...
