Niti Aayog for sweeping judicial reforms 1.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The Niti Aayog has made a few suggestions that need to be immediately implemented in the next three years to bring about much needed critical reforms in the Indian judicial system. The planning commission, in its new avatar, has referred to suggestions made by the 255th Law Commission report which has suggested sweeping reforms in the Civil Code of Procedure and the Criminal Code of Procedure to acknowledge the changing times and to expand the scope of forensic science evidence to recognise its strength in the criminal justice delivery system. The Niti Aayog has also suggested introducing a ‘judicial performance index’ to check delay in trial and address the issue of pendency of cases.

Prevailing "Current Account" (CA) dynamics in India evokes contemplation. It is a crucial determinant of the state of the economy. It reflects the volume and level of flow of goods, services, investments and assets within and across the country's territorial boundaries. The CA is essentially used to gauge an important aspect of the state of the nation's economy as also its possible trajectories in the near future, affecting the economic growth and exchange rate.

The concerned estimation, made by the Japanese financial firm, Nomura, is based on two factors: higher levels of commodity prices, on average, which could drive up debit entries and relatively deplete credit accumulations on ledger books and an expectation of strong domestic recovery which would almost inevitably mean greater aggregate demand necessitated through increased short-term borrowings. These differences in earnings and expenditure or that between ...

India's power struggle and the emergence of renewable energy 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
India consumes 309 GW of power and still 300 million people in the country live without access to electricity. By 2030, India's energy consumption is expected to rise to 700 GW. The escalated demand will be not only to due to the growth in the manufacturing industry but also due to electoral promises of providing full access electricity to all citizens by 2022. To achieve this unimaginable, India is placing its bets on both coal and solar energy. Coal dependency India, being a major importer of coal, has doubled its production targets from its local mines aiming to produce 1.5 billion tonnes of coal by 2020. The intensity is to reduce its import dependence and to help the under utilised thermal power plants in the country. India is also rapidly expanding its coal-fired electricity generation capacity, with around 113 GW of new capacity already under construction in addition to the 205 GW of existing capacity. Given the investments underway, and the abundance of the resource in the country, it seems that ...
