Power Policy Irrational


Power Policy – Rob Aam Admi to Pay for Corporate Losses

September30, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh

Delhi, States, Central Government, PMO, President of India, Supreme Court & High Courts need Chief Technical Officer & Inventor to advice on Development matters who can ensure Corruption Free & Fastest economic progress, eliminating Failures & NPAs.

Power sector is WORST PERFORMER in India – 84,000 MW Generators are Off Grid in Peak Summer is an illustration of GROSS FAILURE – India should LET PROMOTERS suffer, but repeatedly schemes are PUSHED to enrich few promoters or reduce their NPAs and increase cost of Power for Aam Admi.



Idea of Rationalization of Power Tariff is MOST WEIRD when ‘Consumption pattern of Each Consumer is Different in Time, Quality and Quantity.’


Ø My peak Domestic Load is 740W and Average is 301WLoad Factor of 41% With 50 Interruptions in August against around 10% LF for all Domestic Consumers in Delhi.

Ø A shop may have 4000W Peak Load average of 400W and 10% Load Factor Drawing Power in Day Time Peak. Should Pay more for 1. Load Factor and 2. Peak Hour use.


Ø A 5 Star Hotel or a Major Industry having Dedicated TRANSFORMER* – get Quality Power in Delhi and can transfer Cost of Power to consumers should pay more for 1. Quality Power, 2. Load Factor and 3. Time of Use.

Ø *Domestic Consumers SHARE A COMMON LOW VOLTAGE Power Line – Fault in one Connection – 100 to thousands are IMPACTED – Max Variation in Power Quality.

DERC is world’s most ‘Corrupt Organization’ – its every order is scandalously CORRUPT & Weird. I have written Hundreds of Times to no effect.

Delhi Private Discoms had Purchased 46 BU against 33 BU Input required – 30 BU Sale but not more than 25 BU in Ideal Condition20 BU with SolarPV Rooftops installed.

DISCOMS are not EDUCATING On Energy Efficiency, Investing in Quality Power’SKY’%20YOJANA.pdf

KUSUM Policy is best suited for Farmers Owned SOLAR-PV but not being promoted.

Anklav farmers had installed 150 KW CO-OPERATIVE SolarPV Pumps – Each Farmer who used to pay Rs.1500 to Rs.1700 Per Month for Power, Will Get Free Irrigation and Sell Rs.6000 Per Month Worth of Excess Power to Grid – Not Promoted Nationwide. FARMER SOLAR and Rooftop Solar be VIGOROUSLY IMPLEMENTED.

State Prescribed Tariff is Simplistic Rationalization of Power Tariff

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has urged Union Home Minister Shri Rajnath Singh to bring amendments in Section 411 & 412 of Indian Penal Code to protect host traders from harassment and victimisation being held on large scale across the Country. In a communication sent to Home Minister today, the CAIT has urged him to amend the said sections of the IPC Act since large number of traders are harassed without any fault or dishonesty and therefore the time needed amendments are required so that honest traders can do business activities without any fear.

According to these sections, any trader who deals in theft goods is liable for arrest, penalised and fine and these sections are non-bailable. At times the traders particularly jewellers change, convert old goods in lieu of new goods or purchase goods against payment. Certainly, the traders do not know the source of the goods and it might be possible that sometimes theft goods may exchange hands with traders. However, many times even without having substance the traders are arrested. Sometimes, the traders are forced to part  money due to fear and as such these sections are being misused across the Country.

CAIT National President Mr. B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal in communication to Home Minister Shri Rajnath Singh said that these sections of IPC are archaic and needs amendments in wake of ensuring justice and fair play. In present circumstances business rivalry, fixing traders on baseless allegations are routine happenings and even without any substantial evidence the traders are targeted.

The CAIT firmly said that if any traders is found purchasing theft goods knowingly or indulging into such activities intentionally, must be prosecuted but in shelter of these sections the honest traders should not be penalised or victimised.

The CAIT has suggested the Home Minister that under Section 411 and 412 if there is any offence, the traders should be made witness and not the accused. In order to stop the misuse of these sections a Vigilance Committee under Additional Director General of Police should be constituted in each State and to deal with matters related to Section 411 & 412 a District level joint Committee of Police officials and Trade representatives should be formed in each District to ensure that traders are not victimised.

CAIT National Convenor of Jewellers Wing Mr. Pankaj Arora said that these sections are being misused maximum against Jewellery traders in the Country . Most of the people exchange their old ornaments with new ornaments or sell their old ornaments for want of money. It is difficult for traders to know the actual source of such ornaments and sometimes the theft goods are also being sold. There isa need to protect honest traders from misuse of these sections and therefore amendments are necessary.


Rafique: Roll back the CPEC project.

Saudi Arabia has signed grant agreements with Pakistan to finance three road infrastructure and energy projects under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a news report has revealed.

According to the Dawn newspaper report, the agreements were signed by the Saudi ambassador and officials of Pakistan’s finance ministry.

“These agreements have been inked in line with the understanding reached during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia,” Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry was quoted as saying by the newspaper.The first step has been taken as three grant agreements have been signed. This is a very positive step and bodes well for relations between the two countries,” Chaudhry said.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique on Sunday stressed that the government should quit its attempts to roll back the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project.

Speaking to party leaders in Lahore, Rafique said the government’s failure was evident from its foreign policy.

“The government is trying to sabotage the CPEC project but it should quit its attempts to do so,” the PML-N leader said.

Further, the former minister also criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government for ‘destroying public institutions.’

“The current government is destroying [public] institutions that we had improved,” the PML-N leader said. “We revived the railways department but the government seems to be inclined on destroying it.”


Elon Musk agreed to step down as chairman of Tesla

Elon Musk agreed to step down as chairman of Tesla and pay a $20 million fine in a deal to settle charges brought this week by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Under the settlement, which requires court approval, Musk will be allowed to stay as CEO but must leave his role as chairman of the board within 45 days. He cannot seek reelection for three years, according to court filings.
He accepted the deal with the SEC “without admitting or denying the allegations of the complaint,” according to a court document.
Separately, Tesla agreed to pay $20 million to settle claims it failed to adequately police Musk’s tweet.
“The $40 million in penalties will be distributed to harmed investors under a court-approved process,” the SEC said in a press release.
The company also agreed to appoint two new independent directors to its board and establish a board committee to oversee Musk’s communications.
Tesla declined to comment. A spokesperson confirmed Musk will be permitted to remain a member of the board.
The announcement from the SEC comes two days after the agency filed a lawsuit against Musk, claiming he misled investors. The suit centers on tweets Musk sent on August 7 in which he said he had secured funding to take Tesla private at $420 a share, causing the company’s stock to soar. He had not secured the funding, the SEC said.

PGTI and TAKE Solutions launch Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational presented by TAKE Solutions 


  • Tournament to be staged at Chandigarh Golf Club from November 1 – 4 
  • Prize Purse of Rs. 1.5 crore, the highest-ever for an event in Chandigarh 

New Delhi, September 29, 2018: The Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) and TAKE Solutions have jointly launched the Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational presented by TAKE Solutions. The tournament will be staged at the esteemed Chandigarh Golf Club from November 1 – 4, 2018. The main event will be preceded by the Pro-Am on October 31.

The tournament, in its third edition, has been renamed from ‘TAKE Open Golf Championship’ to ‘Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational presented by TAKE Solutions’ as a gesture to honour Indian golfing legend Jeev Milkha Singh.

The event which will be staged at Jeev’s home course, the Chandigarh Golf Club, will offer a whopping Rs. 1.5 crore in prize money, the highest-ever for an event in Chandigarh.

This is the first time that a PGTI event has been named after an iconic Indian professional golfer. Jeev Milkha Singh conquered uncharted territory over two decades back when he became one of the first Indian golfers to taste success at the international level. Since then he has added many more firsts and Indian records to his name.

Jeev has the rare distinction of being the only Indian to have won the Asian Tour Order of Merit twice (in 2006 & 2008). He has won multiple titles on the European Tour, Japan Golf Tour and Asian Tour and has 14 Major appearances to his name. Jeev has also achieved a career-high world ranking of 28, an Indian record.

A thrilled Jeev Milkha Singh, said, “When Mr. Srinivasan informed me about this event, there were three things that I was excited about. Firstly, that the tournament is to be played in my home town Chandigarh, the city where I grew up. Secondly, it will be played at my home course Chandigarh Golf Club, the place where I learnt my golf. Lastly, it is one of the biggest tournaments on the PGTI in terms of prize money.

“I have played tournaments in the United States which have been named after legends such as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. I feel it is the ultimate honour for a sportsperson to have a tournament in his name. I would therefore like to thank Mr. Srinivasan for extending this honour to me. I’m truly humbled.

“Hopefully, as a host I can get a good field at the event and give the players a good time and make sure everybody is looked after and the players enjoy the course and the city. I’m also looking forward to bringing out my best on the golf course and having a good outing in front of my home crowd.

“We need more people like Mr. Srinivasan in our country. He has made an immense contribution to Indian professional golf through his sponsorship of an Asian Tour event in India, PGTI events and sponsorship of Indian professionals who have gone on to win accolades at the international level. As a senior player, I would like to thank him on behalf of all the Indian players for helping create so many opportunities for us.”

Mr. Srinivasan H R, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, TAKE Solutions, said, “TAKE Solutions is delighted to join Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) to honour one of the country’s greatest sportsman and the best ambassador of golf we have, golf veteran Jeev Milkha Singh. Jeev has brought numerous victories for India, and continues to inspire young sports enthusiasts across the country. The ace golfer and Padma Shri awardee is most deserving of this recognition. We look forward to the Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational becoming a world-class event.”

Mr. Uttam Singh Mundy, CEO, PGTI, said, “We are proud to launch the Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational presented by TAKE Solutions. The tournament is a true recognition of Jeev Milkha Singh’s extraordinary accomplishments at the global stage which have helped elevate the status of Indian golf and inspired many other Indian golfers to follow in his footsteps. The Chandigarh Golf Club provides the ideal setting for the tournament as it is the place where Jeev began his golfing life and gave shape to his dreams. We look forward to developing this event into one of the biggest attractions on the PGTI calendar in the years to come.” 

Mr. B S Gill, President, Chandigarh Golf Club, said, “As Jeev Milkha Singh’s home course, it is our privilege at the Chandigarh Golf Club to play host to the Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational presented by TAKE Solutions. Jeev has done the country proud with his path-breaking achievements over the last two decades. This tournament is a befitting tribute to his immense contribution to Indian golf. The Chandigarh Golf Club will strive towards making it a memorable event by providing the perfect playing conditions for the professionals. We wish the players all the best.”


UNICEF ED Henrietta Fore to visit India


UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore to visit India to discuss key issues related to children and young people


To address South Asia’s progress toward improving access to hygiene facilities at Mahatma Gandhi International Sanitation Convention


NEW DELHI, 30 Sept 2018: UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore will visit India from 30 September to 6 October 2018 to see first-hand UNICEF supported programmes related to sanitation, health and other children’s issues, discuss future workforce skills development for young people, and explore partnership models with business leaders.

During her first official visit to the country as UNICEF Executive Director, Fore will be meeting with senior government officials, frontline workers, families, children and young people. Her itinerary also includes meetings with business leaders to seek shared value partnerships with the heads of top corporate houses in the country on the business benefits of investing in children.

“There is no longer debate about the key role of business in building a safer, more sustainable world for children,” Fore said. “There is strong financial evidence that investments in children reap benefits not just for the families and communities benefitting, but also for the governments and corporate partners advancing the cause of children and young people. Doing good is doing good business.”

On 1 October, she will deliver keynote remarks at the Mahatma Gandhi International Sanitation Convention (MGISC), a 4-day event in New Delhi that will bring together Sanitation Ministers and sector specialists from around the world.

Organized by the Indian Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, the meeting will share sanitation and hygiene success stories and lessons from the participating countries. The event will culminate on 2 October with the launch of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth year celebrations in India, as the Swachh Bharat Mission (Clean India Programme) enters its final year of implementation.

“In the last decade, South Asia has taken remarkable strides in improving access to sanitation and hygiene facilities, with the proportion of people practicing open defecation down to only 34 per cent in the region as a whole” Fore said. “This progress is proof we can get to the goal of sanitation for all, if we all regroup, refocus and rededicate ourselves to this critical 2030 benchmark.”

Fore will also interact with young people and focus on some of the innovative solutions that support young people’s access to education and skills training for future work.

“Targeted investments in education, skills and economic opportunities for young people hold the potential to radically transform a country’s economic outlook,” said Fore. “Key stakeholders across sectors must work together to scale-up efforts to strengthen ‘school-to-work’ transitions, including exploring new opportunities to train young people through hands-on mentorships and apprenticeships.”

As part of her India visit, Executive Director Fore will travel to Mumbai to attend a ‘Closing Bell’ event at the National Stock Exchange. The programme will emphasize the urgent need for equitable investments in children – one of the best and most valuable long-term investments governments and businesses can make.

Indonesia Quake worst disaster


Mostly  all the deaths had been recorded in Palu, two days after waves five feet high slammed into the city of 350,000 on Sulawesi island. Eleven deaths had been recorded in the region of Donggala to the north of Palu, it said.

The death toll from a powerful earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia leapt to 832 Sunday, as stunned people on the stricken island of Sulawesi struggled to find food and water and looting spread.

Anarchy prevailed during and after jolt as people spread looted free for all when found great distress around .

The death toll will rise in thousands of dead and colossal loss of property, infrastructue and livestock.

The new toll announced by the national disaster agency was almost double the previous figure. Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla said the final number of dead could be in the “thousands.”

National disaster mitigation agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told a news conference the affected area was bigger than initially thought, though rescuers only had good access to one of four affected districts – Palu.
“We haven’t received reports from the three other areas. Communication is still down, power is still out. We don’t know for sure what is the impact,” he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday condoled the loss of lives in tsunami which hit parts of Indonesia, saying India stands with its maritime neighbour in this difficult hour.
The national disaster agency there put the official death toll so far at 843, all of them in the tsunami-struck city of Palu, but warned the toll was likely to rise.
“Deeply saddened by the loss of lives and devastation due to tsunami and  earthquake in Central Sulawesi in Indonesia. I offer deepest condolences. India stands with its maritime neighbour in this difficult hour,” the Prime Minister’s Office said on Twitter quoting Modi.

Typhoon Trami havoc in Japan

A powerful typhoon hurtled toward Japan’s mainland Sunday after injuring dozens on southern islands, as weather officials warned that fierce winds and torrential rain could trigger landslides and floods.

Typhoon Trami has already sparked travel disruption in the world’s third-biggest economy, with bullet train services in the west of Japan suspended, more than 1,000 flights cancelled due to the closure of a key airport hub and Tokyo’s evening train service scrapped.

The storm is forecast to smash into the mainland near Osaka at around 6pm local time (0900 GMT) and churn across the Japanese archipelago, likely hitting areas still recovering from a series of extreme weather events that have battered Japan in recent months.

Trami tore through the southern island of Okinawa on Saturday, bringing winds strong enough to flip over cars. Several houses were flooded or damaged and 40 people on the island sustained minor injuries but no one was feared dead, local officials said.

Nationwide, authorities issued non-compulsory evacuation advisories to some 349,000 residents, while 300,000 households have lost power, according to public broadcaster NHK.

As the typhoon barrelled east, rail authorities took the highly unusual step of cancelling evening train services in Tokyo, one of the world’s busiest networks, urging passengers to shelter indoors when the storm hits.
