With the growth of the country's economy, demand for natural gas has huge potential, Tripathi said, adding that the company has taken up synchronised development of seven city gas distribution network (CGD) projects at Varanasi, Patna, Jamshedpur, Kolkata, Ranchi, Bhubaneswar and Cuttack. For long term energy security, the first LNG terminal at the east coast is also coming up in Dhamra in Odisha under a joint venture of public and private sector companies. Following the revival of 3 fertiliser plants located at Gorakhpur, Barauni and Sindri, gas demand will be met through companies' supply, he added. "The company is also looking at reducing interest burden by repaying loans. We have brought down the debt from Rs 11,000 crore to Rs 5,000 crore. "In the current year, the company hopes to repay another Rs 3,000 crore, which will help us to reduce interest burden and improve profitability in the years to come," added Tripathi.

NEW DELHI: Six more airports in the country could soon do away with the practise of stamping passengers' hand baggage tags, after few prominent ones ushered in the new system from April 1. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), tasked to guard 59 civil airports in the country, today initiated a week-long trial of the new system at the airports of Chennai, Patna, Guwahati, Thiruvananthapuram, Jaipur and Lucknow. Beginning April 1, the CISF has already done away with the system at seven such air facilities in Delhi, Mumbai, Cochin, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. "The week-long trial at these six airports will end on April 30. We will take a call based on the results and the assessment. "If all the security concerns are found satisfactory, we will be ushering in the new regime of non-stamping of the hand baggage tags at these six airports very soon," CISF Director General O P Singh told PTI.

Charges at minor airports are calculated by the aviation ministry. “Varanasi has been one of the best-performing airports in the country and is growing further. Its growth can only be termed phenomenal," said a senior aviation ministry official, who did not want to be identified. Industry analysts say that the passenger growth during the period at the airport is much higher than comparable airports such as Lucknow and Patna. “Overall, the growth in Varanasi does not seem to be driven by connectivity to more cities but the increased frequency of flights from existing cities,” said Sharat Dhall, chief operating officer at Yatra-.com, an online travel portal. “Major routes have been roughly the same during the last 4 years which leads to the prima facie conclusion that PM Modi representing Varanasi is drawing significant attention to this city,” Dhall said.

In India, states levy taxes on alcohol, while the federal government levies duties on imports. At the same time, state governments control manufacturing, distribution, retailing and pricing of liquor, which in turn, hurts profits. To be sure, Kerala is said to be rethinking the ban. Carlsberg India chief executive officer Michael Jensen said last year that India was the most difficult market in the world, referring at that time to Bihar’s imposition of prohibition after he invested $25 million to set up a plant near Patna in 2014. "It is very detrimental for investor confidence," Jensen said at the time. Liquor stocks have taken a hit -- United Spirits has declined 23% and United Breweries has fallen 22% in the past six months. GM Breweriesshare value has eroded by 26.9% and Tilaknagar Industries by 19% during the same period. Many stocks are trading below their 200-day simple moving averages on technical charts, suggesting that they are in a long-term downtrend.

Consider this: There has been a 56 per cent increase in the daily tally of passenger trains over 15 years -- from 8,520 in 2000-01 to 13,313 in 2015-16. The number of freight trains increased by 59 per cent in the same period. But the running track length for all these trains increased by only 12 per cent in 15 years -- from 81,865 km to 92,081 km. "Fatigue of railway tracks", not explosives, is also the reason given by Gopal Gupta, Director General, Railways, Uttar Pradesh Police, to explain the derailment of 14 coaches of the Indore-Patna Express near Kanpur. Most of India's high-traffic rail routes lie in the Gangetic plains, according to "Some insights on the recent spate of accidents in Indian Railways", a 2012 paper on traffic flow along express train routes in the journal 'Physica A'. Of the 11 major accidents due to derailment or collision in 2010, eight occurred in this region, the paper said.

PATNA: Bihar Urban Development and Housing Minister Maheshwar Hazari today charged the Centre with meting out step-motherly treatment to the state by not giving its in principle approval of DPR for Patna Metro. "It has been more than a year since the Patna Metro project's Detailed Project Report (DPR) is pending for clearance with the Central government. The Centre has not given its in-principle approval to the project for metro in Patna. The Government of India should give its approval to the metro project at the earliest," Hazari said in the state Legislative Council. "The Central government is meting out step-motherly treatment to the state and is not giving approval due to political rivalry...It is okay if the Centre does not give a penny to the project but it should just give the clearance to the DPR at the earliest. We will complete the project on our own resources," Hazari said.
