Light over the manhole, at last: Manual scavengers win battle 23.6.2017
Chennai: Manual scavenging will soon be a thing of the past, at last and for sure. At least for these 12 women and six men of Chennai who have been cleaning up the filth on train tracks and sinking into the drains every now and then for livelihood risking multiple ailments, even asphyxiation. Emerging from the Chennai Corporation headquarters at the Ripon Building on Thursday after signing the necessary forms for releasing them from the "filthy bondage", they were all smiles as now they will get Rs 40,000 as a lump sum grant and Rs 7,000 pension every month, to start any vocation of choice.

Dug up drain hits traffic movement 22.6.2017
Bengaluru: Close to four weeks since the work of laying BWSSB pipes began on Banaswadi Main Road, now the water and sewage pipes have been laid and the dugout portion all along the road has been closed.  But the side that was dug up and filled, as you travel towards ITC from the IOC flyover, is unusable, uneven and dusty. The dust from the unsurfaced portion chokes residents, shop owners and commuters. But when the road will be resurfaced and made usable remains unclear. It was a month ago that the BSWSSB started digging one side of the road, but the work which was to take about 10 days took three weeks.  Now that the pipes have been laid, the ditch has been closed, but restoration of the road to its original shape is yet to begin. Crushed stones have been laid all along the closed ditch for resurfacing. But there is no relief for commuters who use the narrow road, which is one of the main arterial stretches in the area. Commuters from Banaswadi, OMBR Layout, Ramamurthy Nagar, Horamavu and ...

Go-green plan mooted for thirsty thermal power units 22.6.2017
Hyderabad: The country has seen an increase in the number of coal-based thermal power plants — one of the most environmentally damaging forms of power generation. In addition to the fly ash problem, these power plants also require large amounts of water, a scarce commodity in India. The Central government has estimated that thermal power plants generate about 950 billion units annually, which requires about 2800 million cubic metres (around 7700 MLD) of water. To generate one unit power, three litres of water are required. The power ministry has estimated that the requirement of water is likely to grow to 12000 MLD by the year 2026-27. Recently, the Telangana State government has allotted 6.5 TMC of water from the Krishna River every year for the 4000 MW Yadadri thermal power station proposed to be set up at Damaracherla in Nalgonda district. At the same time, for the 4000 MW power plant of the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) at Ramagundam, the government has allotted 60 cusecs of ...
