Rajahmundry: Mangroves felling poses threat 23.6.2017
Rajahmundry: The illegal felling of mangrove forests has become rampant, with villagers are clearing forested areas to take up aquaculture, which offers them huge profit margins. This trend has been observed at the Samanthakur village of Allavaram mandal in East Godavari. The residents of Samanthakur have cleared over 33 acres of the total 250 acres of mangrove forest. They are preparing to dig up tanks and ponds for the cultivation of fish. The mangrove forests are located on lands owned by the Revenue Department, and villagers are beginning to encroach upon them. Allegations are being made of the existence of an aqua mafia that instigates and encourages villagers to encroach upon the forest. Members of the mafia reportedly intend to lease the land, from villagers, at a nominal price and make large amounts of money through aquaculture. Though authorities of the forest department have implemented measures to safeguard reserved forest areas and sanctuaries from encroachment, they have not paid attention ...

GST to hit irrigation, water supply projects, say analysts 23.6.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, June 22 The high GST on irrigation projects will be a big blow for the irrigation and drinking water supply projects across the country. Putting the irrigation projects under 18% tax slab in GST regime will have a negative effect and hurt the entire ecosystem of farmers, retailers, distributors and urban populace in India, say analysts. “The firms who have been allotted the tenders for laying of water pipelines for irrigation, canal and dams etc. will be charged 18% GST. This was earlier exempted under service tax laws,” said Keshav R Garg, a chartered accountant and faculty member for GST: Indirect Tax Committee of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). “Since no such exemption has been given under the GST regime, the firms who have been allotted such tenders shall have to pay 18% extra from their pocket. This issue will have far- reaching impact. It will force such allottees to compromise on quality to recover the huge amount of GST levy. The government ...

Lift irrigation works in Guntur slow down 22.6.2017
Vijayawada: Several suspicions have been raised over the Kondaveeti Vaagu lift irrigation scheme, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of next month. The contract was awarded to MEIL, at the rate of `237 crore in the month of January and it is to be completed within six months as per the schedule. While Dr Marri Chenna Reddy"s formula on Kondaveeti Vaagu is most beneficial, on cost front, the government has conveniently ignored it, according to experts.  The state government has proposed to construct a new canal to divert the flood water of the stream into Krishna River from Lam Farm to Vykunthapuram of Guntur district, and still there is no sign of development works in Undavalli. The state government has already sanctioned `237 crore for the pumping house at Undavalli village in Tadepalli mandal. The first priority is to dig the silt from the Kondaveeti Vaagu within 15 days and it will take another 15 days to dry, then only the works would be taken up. A new canal would be ...
