IPO market heats up; 3 dozen cos line up Rs 35,000-cr public offers 27.5.2018 General News
The IPO lane seems to get busier as three dozen companies have lined up initial share sale plans worth Rs 35,000 crore in the coming months, largely to fund their expansion projects and working capital requirement. These include six state-run entities -- Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency, Rail Vikas Nigam, IRCON International, RITES, Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers and Mazagon Dock -- as the government intends to unlock the real value of such PSUs and bring in greater accountability.

CERC debates on tariff structure for thermal power plants 27.5.2018 General News
In view of decreasing PLF of the thermal generating stations, the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) is relooking the current two-part tariff structure and seeking feed back from stakeholders to replace it with a three-part tariff structure. This in turn could encourage signing of long term PPAs by the state owned power distribution companies as it may decrease some of the stress in the power sector for units unable to complete the project or remain idle due to lack of long term power demand agreements, an utility company official told PTI. Due to low demand, coal based power plants are running at a PLF of around 60 per cent. PLF in 2017-18 was 59.68 down from 77.5 per cent in 2009-10, while the government forecasts the same to go lower to 56.50 by FY22'. Consequently, the states have not been coming forward for long term power purchase to avoid fixed cost liability and they have been resorting to short term power purchase to meet their demand, the CERC ...

Powerful cyclone strikes Oman, Yemen; 6 dead, 30 missing 27.5.2018 General News
A cyclone more powerful than any previously recorded in southern Oman slammed into the Gulf country and neighbouring Yemen yesterday, deluging a major city with nearly three years' worth of rainfall in single day. The storm killed at least six people while more than 30 remain missing, officials said. Cyclone Mekunu caused flash flooding that tore away whole roadways and submerged others in Salalah, Oman's third-largest city, stranding drivers. Strong winds knocked over street lights and tore away roofing. Rushing waters from the rain and storm surges flooded typically dry creek beds. The holiday destination's now-empty tourist beaches were littered with debris and foam from the churning Arabian Sea. Three people, including a 12-year-old girl, died in Oman, and another two bodies were recovered from the Yemeni island of Socotra. More than 30 people were still missing in Socotra, including Yemeni, Indian and Sudanese nationals. Yemeni officials also reported damage in the country's far .
