NOT A FRUITFUL EXERCISE
Mango mela ends as sales figure leaves bitter taste

Hyderabad: Curtains came down on the Mango Mela at Exhibition Grounds on Monday.Farmers from across the state managed to sell 15 tonnes of the fruit on an average daily as against the expected sale of 40 tonnes during the 32-day mela,the reason for the poor sales being attributed to high cost.
Officials from the horticulture department that organized the mela in collaboration with the Exhibition Society said that the production of mangoes in the state had drastically declined by about 30 per cent this year compared to last year.And this short fall led to a 20 per cent rise in the cost of the fruit.
Around 15 varieties of mangoes were made available by individual farmers and Mango Growers Association __ benishan,rassal,mallika,kesari,langda and himayat to name a few.The month long affair was divided into three phases keeping in mind the different ripening period of mangoes grown in various parts of the state.Now,the farmers have been given three days time till May 17 to dispose of their leftover stocks.
Officials said that the farmers this time had used ethylene,a natural fruit ripening hormone,to ripen the fruit as against the toxic calcium carbide.The fruit that is available in the outside markets is being ripened using the banned chemical calcium carbine that can cause cancer, said an official.However,he added that the farmers were happy with the sales.

Power demand still remains high
Quote:
Unscheduled Powercuts Continue In Surrounding Areas Of The City

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Hyderabad: Despite a dip in daytime temperatures due to showers in the city in the last few days,the demand for power has not ebbed away.The Hyderabad metro zone consumes between 1,700 mega watts (mw) and 2,000 mw per day and the Central Power Distribution Company Limited (CPDCL) has been facing a shortage of 400 mw to 500 mw of power every day.
Though there are no official power cuts and load shedding,unscheduled power disruptions are continuing in surrounding areas of the city.These unscheduled power cuts might end in a month.
CPDCL officials were hoping that summer showers and pleasant weather might bring down power demand in the city.On the contrary,the demand has remained unchanged in Greater Hyderabad limits,comprising three circles of Hyderabad and two circles of Rangareddy district.Of the total consumption,1,200 mw power is being utilized in Hyderabad metro zone,mainly offices,industrial units and commercial establishments.
CPDCL sources said the power demand on May 1 was 1,700 mw and subsequently it touched up to 1,900 mw on May 5,but it peaked on May 10,reaching 2,100 mw,highest this season.On the next day i.e., on May 11,the power demand was 2,037 mw.
CPDCL officials said power demand is reduced to a great extent during the weekends,as IT hubs remain closed on Saturdays and Sundays and commercial establishments and offices on Sundays.Generally,the power demand is 900 mw on Sundays and 1,100 mw on Saturdays.There are no power cuts and load shedding for the past 20 days in the city as we are getting the required power from APTransco, CPDCL chief general manager (metro zone) AG Satish Kumar told TOI.
However,consumers in two circles (North and South RR district) complain that they have been experiencing unscheduled power cuts from one to two hours daily.Even if there is a minor shower,there is no end to power woes, a consumer from Malkajgiri said.Once the power generation improves next month,we will overcome even the 400 to 500 mw shortfall, a CPDCL source said.

Hussainsagar Lake Dredging Step Closer to Realization

Source
Quote:


Tendering process for the Hussainsagar dredging work has been completed and a concurrence from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which is funding the Hussainsagar and Catchment Area Improvement Project, is awaited.

According to The Hindu, the dredging of the sediments looks at collecting a whopping 10 lakh cubic metre, i.e., around 12 lakh tonne, from close to the mouth of the four nalas that join the lake.

“The Kukatpally nala confluence work will be taken up later and since it is hazardous material, the dumping will be done under the PCB guidance,” the official said.

At least two dredgers are expected to work on the lake sediments and the dredged wet material will be initially dumped along the shoreline. The sediment will be allowed to dry at these temporary sites and then moved to Jawaharnagar.

HYDERABAD: The municipal corporation has plans to develop the Imliban Park, which is situated on the Musi river bed in the old city, mayor Mohd Majid Hussain has said. He said that in response to a suggestion made by Alam Mehdi of National Union of Journalists that the GHMC could use the land at Imliban Park to build an auditorium as the old city had no auditorium.
�“The Salarjung Museum Auditorium and the Indira Priyadarshani Hall at the Public Gardens are expensive for conduct of events on a large scale,” the journalist said.
�The mayor assured him that the corporation would find a suitable location for building the auditorium. The mayor responded positively to a request from the association for construction of apartments for journalists hailing from a poor economic background.
�“We request the GHMC to provide us lands to construct apartments under urban housing scheme,’’ said Uppala Lakhsman, member of the Press Council of India. The mayor assured to look into the request and take an appropriate action

No one opposed its demolition? Or is it a mistake where the reporter meant a building near the 400 year old Charminar?

Funds allotted for shifting power lines

Source: The Hindu

Quote:

However, officials yet to finalise works to be taken up on priority basis

Power lines hanging menacingly over the residential colonies and alongside the balconies could be a thing of the past in at least a few localities of the city, if funds allotted by the government as part of the Prajapatham programme are properly utilised by the Discom.

A total of Rs.25-crore has been allotted recently as part of the public outreach programme, for shifting of high tension and low tension power lines from housing colonies in all the four Discoms. Of this, the Central Distribution Company of Andhra Pradesh (APCPDCL) has got a lion's share, Rs.10-crore, with Metro Zone and Ranga Reddy Zone in GHMC area having been allocated Rs.1 crore each.After 75 per cent of the allotments are spent, the Discoms may approach for additional amounts, enclosing the utilisation certificates colony-wise. More funds are likely to follow depending upon the successful completion of works in the first phase.

However, a full month after the allotment, the Metro Zone officials are yet to finalise the list of colonies where the works are to be taken up on priority basis. This is despite the stipulation that works should be taken up first in localities where accidents took place earlier. A number of fatal accidents occurred in areas such as Sanathnagar, Mehdipatnam, Asmangadh, and Saidabad earlier, when people came in contact with live wires passing in close proximity of houses. Children were often easy victims. When people and public representatives protested, the company has played it safe by blaming it on the residents for constructing houses with no heed to vertical and horizontal clearance norms.

However, by the time these norms were fixed in 2003, many houses had already been built near the power lines, some even by the Andhra Pradesh Housing Board. One example is B.K.Guda in Sanathnagar where even high tension 11 KV and 33 KV lines are within hand's reach of residents.

The area recorded quite a few deaths by electrocution in the past few years.

The fresh sanction from government came in the wake of a report submitted to Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy over a year ago, in which it was mentioned that over 8,000 houses in GHMC area were dangerously close to power lines. The report further mentioned that a total of 335 kilometers of power lines and nearly 3300 electric poles will have to be shifted in order to render these colonies safe.

HYDERABAD: After the National Police Academy (NPA), Greater Hyderabad may soon boast of a National Prison Academy as the state government has allotted 100 acres for it at Vikarabad, about 70 km from the city centre.

The Union ministry of home affairs (MHA), which has allocated Rs 320 crore for its construction, will also run the institution where prison officials from all over the country will be trained. As of now, there is no national academy to train prison officials. There are, however, some state-level academies such as the State Institute of Correctional Administration (SICA) in AP and the Academy of Prisons and Correctional Administration (APCA) in Tamil Nadu. Chandigarh (Haryana) and Kolkata (WB) also have similar academies. Apart from AP, other states, including TN, had offered land for the academy. The AP government is also planning to set up a model jail next to the new academy. "This will be akin to a hospital attached to a medical college. Officials being trained can test their mettle here," a state official engaged in the exercise told TOI.

Other than the NPA, Hyderabad also has a training academy for Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel. The need for an apex training institution was felt as prison officials have often been found wanting in dealing with criminals from different backgrounds. "As jails continue to follow archaic practices, the staff need to be trained to think in a more modern fashion," a veteran prison administrator said.

India will launch Agni VI next, says DRDO chief

Quote:
The Defence Research Development Organisation is preparing the roadmap to 2050. The Agni V was just the beginning, and work is already in progress for the advanced version — the Agni VI — a multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicle (MIRV). This was disclosed by Dr Vijay Kumar Saraswat, director-general of DRDO, secretary of the department of defence R&D and scientific adviser to the defence minister, on the sidelines of a felicitation ceremony organised by FAPCCI CEO Forum in Hyderabad on Saturday.

Still basking in the glory of the intercontinental range ballistic missile, the Agni V, Dr Saraswat dismissed the accusations of Army chief General V.K. Singh regarding corruption or commissions in arms deals, asserting that the procedure laid down for finalising the arms deals left little scope for corruption.

On the light combat aircraft (LCA), Dr Saraswat said that the LCA Mk-1 would be ready next year, while the Mk-2 would be completed by 2016 and the LCA Navy by 2014. He added that work had been going on simultaneously for all these aircraft versions.

Reflecting on two decades taken for completing the LCA, Dr Saraswat said that the carbon fibre was not indigenously available in India, and that even the USA took 22 years to develop its stealth aircraft. Following the denial of material and technology from countries like the USA, the indigenously developed Agni V took three years from drawing board to launch pad. DRDO officials claim that another ICBM, a three-stage Agni VI missile, will be developed in another two years or so and will have an even longer range, up to 8,000 km to 10,000 km. The Agni VI will be sleeker than the Agni-V and capable of carrying at least 10 nuclear warheads, capable of targeting multiple targets at the same time.

The thrust will be once again on procuring the sub-systems from Indian industrial units, and a significant chunk of these will be from Hyderabad. The DRDO chief asked the industry to join forces with it in its various programmes till 2020 for projects worth more than Rs 3 lakh crore.

GHMC sits over major projects

Quote:
Major environmental, civic and transport infrastructure projects costing hundreds of crores of rupees have been sanctioned in the last five years, but the GHMC has not completed a single one.
Works worth Rs 1,700 crore pertaining to construction of cement and BT roads, development of parks, repairs of manholes, construction of link and parallel roads, widening of roads, construction of flyovers, road over bridges, culverts and toilets, and widening of drains, to name a few, are pending.

In the year 2011-2012, 298 projects were sanctioned, but not even tendered. The tender process has been completed in 4,508 projects, but not executed. A total of Rs 923.51 crore was sanctioned in 2011-2012. TD floor leader in GHMC Singireddy Srinivas said that since the formation of Greater Hyderabad, corporation officials have been showing on paper that works worth crore of rupees have been sanctioned. This gives the impression that development of infrastructure will take place on a large scale.

“The citizens of surrounding municipalities feel that the development activities were better with lower taxes, when they were und-er the local municipality. After the formation of Greater Hyderabad, while property taxes have increased, development activities have come down,” he said.
