Despite budget sops, EVs may find few takers yet

2019-07-18

For Bengaluru-based Shubham Jain, 23, switching to an electric vehicle (EV) from a petrol car with an internal combustion (IC) engine (found in almost all cars, buses and motorcycles) has brought down the cost of daily commute considerably. The monthly commuting cost for Jain, who drives about 50km every day, has come down from ₹7,000 (fuel cost) to ₹1,500 (extra electricity bill), roughly. “I spent a lot on fuel earlier. An IC engine is undoubtedly more powerful but for commute within city limits, it does not have an edge over an EV," said Jain. The demand for EVs is catching ..

Farming has dwindled in Singur: Mamata

2019-07-11

Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday told the Assembly that farming was on the decline on the Singur land that had been reclaimed from the aborted Tata Nano project and returned to farmers, and those who did not want to continue cultivating it could not be forced to do so.

From MF, radio arms to head office, Anil Ambani selling anything that has a price

2019-07-11

Ambani is waging a war on debt. He said on June 11 that his Reliance Group repaid Rs 350 billion in the past 14 months through asset disposals. But a large pile remains. The four biggest group companies still have about 939 billion rupees of debt. And that excludes Reliance Communications Ltd., Ambani’s former flagship firm, that recently slipped into insolvency. Further asset sales would help Ambani bolster the financial health of his group’s companies after a string of setbacks that included an auditor resigning at one of the firms and plunging stock prices at others. Rating cut..
