Households may have to pay market rates for piped gas JOINT OPERATION LET, Hizbul militants among dead; forces recover weapons, warlike stores from encounter site › HT Correspondent [email protected] n 11 INJURED IN TERROR ATTACK The CNG sector need not be subsidised as even the market pricebased gas would be cheaper compared to diesel or other fuel substitutes Rajeev Jayaswal November 15, 2014. Under the scheme, LPG cylinders are sold as per the market rate and the subsidy on the fuel is transferred to t he eligible consumers directly into their Aadhaarlinked bank accounts. Later, consumers earning over ~10 lakh per annum were excluded from the subsidy.
Although there is no overt subsidy in PNG and CNG, the government has accorded the top priority for PNG and CNG consumers.
Under the policy, the CGD sector has first right over domestically-produced gas. Price of domestically-produced natural gas is regulated by the government except for gas produced from Panna-mukta-tapti fields, which is significantly lower than the price of imported gas.currently, domestically-produced gas is sold at $3.36 (~239.15) per unit, about 65% cheaper than the landed cost of imported gas, which is around $5.50 (~391.47) per unit.
Replying to a query on subsidy to PNG consumers on August 1, 2018, petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan had told the Lok Sabha, “Domestic gas, which is cheaper than imported gas, has been allocated to meet the entire requirement of PNG [domestic] and Compressed Natural Gas... [Transport] segments of City Gas Distribution... sector and it has been kept under no cut category.” Five militants of the Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-taiba were killed in a gunfight with security forces in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district, the police said on Sunday, hours after this year’s deadliest incident of violence in the Valley.
A joint party of the army, police, and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) launched a cordon and search operation early on Sunday after information about the presence of militants in Kellam area.
Kulgam senior superintendent of police Harmeet Singh Mehta said forces had information that the militants were hiding in a house, which was cordoned off before sunrise and the militants were asked to surrender.“they did not pay heed and opened fire after which we retaliated,” said Mehta.
“The encounter continued for about eight hours. Five militants were killed and five AK-47 rifles and other ammunition were recovered from them. The house in which they were hiding was also damaged,”he said.
Army spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia said the forces recovered weapons and warlike stores from the encounter site.
A police spokesperson said all militants were local residents and part of a combined group of the homegrown Hizbul Mujahideen and the Pakistanbased Lashkar-e-taiba. SRINAGAR: [email protected] n Eleven people, including four policemen and three Central Reserve Police Force personnel, were injured in a grenade attack by alleged militants in the heart of Srinagar on Sunday evening.
“Police attended the terror crime spot and found that four cops, three CRPF personnel and four civilians were injured in the terror attack,” police spokesperson Manoj Kumar said.
The injured civilians, including two women, have been shifted to hospitals, said Kumar. Over 4.77 million households and 3.25 million automobile owners may have to pay market rates for piped natural gas (PNG) and compressed natural gas [CNG], respectively.
A high-powered committee has recommended withdrawal of gas supply at concessional rates to CNG users and proposed direct subsidy to only domestic kitchens. There would be about 40-50% jump in PNG and CNG rates depending on volatility in the international benchmark rates if the recommendation is implemented, executives with state-owned natural gas processing and distribution company GAIL India and Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL) said requesting anonymity. There was no response to queries sent to the ministry of petroleum, GAIL India and IGL.
IGL is currently supplying PNG to domestic kitchens at ~ 29.80 per standard cubic meter (SCM), including tax in Delhi. PNG costs large industrial consumers around ~43.6 per SCM. IGL sells CNG at ~ 44.70 per kg in the capital. The proposals are part of a recent report on energy security made by a committee chaired by NITI Aayog vicechairman Rajiv Kumar. The report of the committee is under “active consideration”, two officials in the petroleum ministry said on condition of anonymity. NEW DELHI: COMMITTEE REPORT The committee that submitted its report last month to the oil ministry has cabinet secretary P K Sinha, oil secretary M M Kutty, department of economic affairs secretary Subhash Chandra Garg, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation chairman Shashi Shankar and NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant as members.
“The CGD [city gas distribution] sector is availing subsidised gas comprising PNG for the household sector and CNG for the transport sector. The CNG sector need not be subsidised as even the market price-based gas would be cheaper compared to diesel or other fuel substitutes,” the committee said in a report. HT has seen a copy of the report.
The report added, “The subsidy to PNG can be given in the form of DBT [Direct Benefit Transfer] as in the case of LPG.”
The Direct Benefit Transfer of LPG, which is also known as PAHAL or Pratyaksh Hanstantrit Labh, was launched on HTC › Army personnel outside the house in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district where the militants were hiding. The house was cordoned off by security forces before the gun battle. n Mirwaiz Umar Farooq tweeted, “Deeply saddened by the martyrdom of 5 young boys in #Kulgam as the tyranny of #Operationallout, #CASO (cordon and search operations) continues against the people of #SouthKashmir, pelleted injured and blinded even in such harsh winter by the brutal and ruthless Indian state.”
Kashmir witnessed 10 gunfights between militants and security forces in 2019. The operations have led to the killing of 25 militants, while a policeman too was killed in a militant attack. PTI The encounter continued for about eight hours. Five militants were killed and five

The injured are stable,” he said.

Separatist leader They were i dentified as Waseem Ahmad Rather, Aqib Nazir Mir, Parvaiz Ahmad Bhat, Idrees Ahmad Bhat and Zahid Ahmad Parray. The spokesperson said Waseem, Aqib and Parvaiz were involved in the killings of a civilian and a local armyman. “This group of terrorists was also involved in various grenade attack incidents across Anantnag and Kulgam districts for which cases stand registered in concerned Police Stations,” the spokesman said.

Authorities stopped internet services in the area to Judging is ‘under stress’ in digital era: Justice AK Sikri To boost tourism, ministry seeks help of bloggers CONNECT YOUR BUSINESS PROPERTY SPECIAL Madhavi Goradia Divan, one of the speakers at the conference, also expressed her concurring views and said that on social media, there is a huge blur between news and fake news.
“It is all right to an activist be now and then. But when one has appeared on those cases, argued in those cases, tweeting immediately after (hearing) can conflict with your professional duties,” she said.
Divan said though the requirement is that one needs to be an accredited journalist to be able to report from the Supreme Court, “for the rest, there is Twitter”. “There is a certain shallowness to Twitter. “I think it can put the judge under pressure because the judges as much as they are trained to decide shorn of media reportage, we know they are as human as anybody else and we should not distract them from deciding independently,” she said. what ‘is’ the outcome, (but) what ‘should be’ the outcome. And let me tell you from my experience here that it has an influence on how a judge decides a case.
“It is not so much in the Supreme Court because by the time they come to the apex court they are quite matured and they know how the case is to be decided on the basis of law irrespective of what is happening in the media. Today judging is under stress,” Justice Sikri said.
He said the power of contempt of court is not being used that much. “Few years ago, it has always been an opinion that once a judgment was rendered by the court, be it the Supreme Court, high courts or any trial court, you have every right to criticize the judgement. Now there is slander or defamatory speeches even against judges who gave that judgment. And still not much is said on this,” Justice Sikri said.
Additional Solicitor General Press Trust of India Vanita Srivastava [email protected] [email protected] n n Judging is “under stress” in the digital era, a Supreme Court judge said on Sunday, lamenting that even before a case is taken up by the court, people start discussing on social media what the outcome “should be” which has an influence on the judges.
Talking on “Freedom of press in the digital age” at the first Law Association For Asia and the Pacific (LAWASIA) conference here, Justice AK Sikri said freedom of press is changing the paradigm of civil and human rights and the current pattern of media trials is an example of it.
“Media trials were there earlier also. But today what is happening is that when an issue is raised, a petition is filed, (and) even before it is taken up by the court, people start discussing what should be the outcome. Not In an attempt to popularise lesser-known places with tourism potential in the country, the ministry of tourism has reached out to travel bloggers.
The ministry has selected eight bloggers, mostly women, to write about eight destinations, which will be picked next week by tourism ministry.
The write-ups by the bloggers will be published in their personal blogs, and promoted on other social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. Later, they will also be published on tourism ministry’s website –incredibleindia.com, officials said. The bloggers will visit the destinations in February and March. We had a meeting with around 17 travel bloggers a few days back. We have zeroed down on eight bloggers... We are open to suggestions and new thinking, and recognise the power of social media,” tourism minister KJ Alphons said.
The ministry plans to bring more bloggers on board in the coming months. Among other things, t he articles would include the bloggers’ travel routes and the challenges faced by them. The focus of the writeups would be on wellness and sustainable tourism. Alphons said there was an urgent need to put some new areas on the tourism map. Ministry officials said though the bloggers will also write about popular getaways like Hampi and Khajuraho, most of their stories will be about lesser-known places, which would include wildlife parks in different parts of the country besides some places in the north-east.
J Meenakshi, one of the eight bloggers identified for the initiative, said: “This is a really good initiative. Social media has a huge reach. When I wrote about the Chola temples, I was impressed to see the interest of the readers.” NEW DELHI: NEWDELHI: BUSINESS OFFER SERVICES “ ASTROLOGY NADI ASTROLOGY Guruji-b.

SARADHA PROBE Kolkata top cop questioned again BEAUTY MASSAGE PARLOURS they were brought together briefly late in evening, the official said. Kumar’s questioning began around 10:30am, the official added. The 1989 batch IPS officer was questioned for about eight hours on Saturday.
The Central Bureau of Investigation is probing allegations against Kumar relating to the chit fund scandal in which at least two million people were cheated out of their savings by the Saradha Group. The case involved financial irregularities to the tune of ₹10,000 crore.
It came to light in 2013 when the firm, which had several other business interests, collapsed.
The agency’s charge against Kumar, who led a special investigation team that probed the case, is that he compromised evidence in the probe.
The Supreme Court has directed Kumar to appear before the CBI and cooperate in the investigation of cases arising out of the scandal. The court chose Shillong as the neutral meeting place “to avoid all unnecessary controversy” and made it clear that Kumar would not be arrested. The CBI approached the Supreme Court after its officials were thwarted by Kolkata Police when they had gone to Kumar’s official residence in the city to question him on February 3.
The official said the central agency has prepared a questionnaire for Kumar, and the questioning is done in a phased manner and it is being videographed as requested by the Kolkata Police chief. David Laitphlang 5& 7 [email protected] STAR n Hotel Guest Only The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) questioned Kolkata Police commissioner Rajeev Kumar for the second consecutive day in Shillong on Sunday in connection with the Saradha ponzi scandal, an official of the agency said.
During interrogation, Kumar was brought face to face with former Trinamool Congress parliamentarian Kunal Ghosh, who too has been brought to the Shillong office for investigation. Ghosh was arrested in 2013 and subsequently suspended by the party. He has been out on bail since 2016.
Initially, Ghosh was interviewed in a separate room, but SHILLONG: By Edu Massage
