Escoms in Karnataka will provide new power connections to pumpsets only if the device is energy efficient with a four to five star rating, Energy Minister DKShivakumar announced in Bengaluru on Friday. Addressing a press conference, Shivakumar said the new rule will be applicable to all types of pumpsets including irrigation, domestic and industrial. Energy efficient pumpsets with four to five star grading cost between Rs 30,000 and Rs 45,000 per unit depending on the horse power. They cost around Rs 10,000 more compared to regular pumpsets. Shivakumar said the state government spends around Rs 9,000 crore for providing free power to farmers. Installing energy efficient pumpsets will result in savings to the tune of 30% to 39% of power. However, for achieving that, all the 22 lakh pumpsets in the state will have to be replaced with energy efficient ones. Shivakumar said no deadline has been set for replacement of existing pumpsets. "To start with, the rule will apply only to new connections. In the long ...

Emergence of Bheem Army compounds Mayawati's problems 26.5.2017 deccanherald.com
After a dismal showing at the hustings and a rebellion in the rank and file of the BSP, the emergence of the Dalit outfit Bheem Army at the national level has compounded problems for party chief Mayawati. Even before the BSP could have come to terms with being relegated to a poor third, managing merely 19 seats (in the 403-member UP Assembly), 61 down from 2012, it is faced with a new challenge in the form of the Bheem Army which has taken the winds out of its sails following Saharanpur caste clashes. The organisation of Dalit youths across seven states in northern India, was founded by a young lawyer Chandrashekhar two years ago in Saharanpur, and shot into prominence during the clashes. He belongs to Chhutmalpur village adjoining Shabbirpur, the epicentre of recent troubles. Though the mission of the Bheem Army was to educate the communitys children free of cost, with their first school coming up two years ago at Saharanpurs Bhado village, it came into limelight in April when an Ambedkar Jayanti ...
