Maruti Suzuki’s MD, Kenichi Ayukawa and Toshihiro Suzuki, President, Suzuki explain the model To PM Modi

Electric mobility has been on the government’s agenda for quite sometime and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been showing interest in the development. On his visit to the 2019  Vibrant Gujarat Exhibition, PM Modi also spent time at Maruti Suzuki‘s pavilion and had a look at the scale model of India’s first lithium-ion plant which Suzuki will be setting up at Hansalpur, Gujarat. The Prime Minister was briefed about the model of the upcoming plant by Maruti Suzuki’s MD- Kenichi Ayukawa along with Toshihiro Suzuki, President- Suzuki Motor Corporation.

In September 2017, Suzuki had partnered with Toshiba and Denso to lay the foundation for a new lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in Gujarat and the joint venture will be investing ₹ 1,151 crore to set the production unit in the state. In the JV, Suzuki holds 50 per cent of the stake while Toshiba and Denso account 40 per cent and 10 per cent respectively. The investment will be shared in the ratio of their shareholding.

The lithium-ion batteries will primarily be used in Suzuki’s own hybrid and upcoming electric models, however, the joint venture is open to supplying batteries to other automakers as well. The plant is likely to begin operations in FY2021 and it will primarily export batteries. However, the lithium-ion batteries will also replace the lead-acid batteries used in Maruti Suzuki’s model line-up in India along with the global models. There is a possibility that Toyota may also use these batteries for its hybrid and electric models such as the Toyota Prius and Camry Hybrid. Toyota and Suzuki also have a separate JV where both companies will be cross-badging their models. Maruti Suzuki will be supplying the Baleno and Vitara Brezza to Toyota which Toyota will retail through its own dealerships while Toyota will give the Corolla Altis to Maruti Suzuki.

l5belnco The electric WagonR could be the first model to get the lithium-ion batteries from the Gujarat plant. 

Maruti Suzuki had already flagged-off the trial run of its electric Wagon R hatchbacks in India earlier in 2018 and it will be the first model to use these batteries. Hybrid models like Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Ertiga will also be fitted with the batteries rolled out of this plant. Moreover, Maruti Suzuki will also invest additional ₹ 3,800 crores in the same facility to set up its third car plant in the country.

PM Modi Visits today Odisha and Kerala


नई दिल्ली:

प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी ओडिशा और केरल में आज कई परियोजनाओं की शुरुआत करेंगे. इन परियोजनाओं में एक रेलवे लाइन और एक राजमार्ग बाईपास परियोजना भी शामिल है.ओडिशा के झारसुगुडा में प्रधानमंत्री मल्टी मोडल लॉजिस्टिक्स पार्क (एमएमएलपी) और अन्य विकास परियोजनाओं की शुरुआत करेंगे. इसके अलावा वह बलांगीर और बिचुपली के बीच एक नये रेलवे लाइन की भी शुरुआत करेंगे. प्रधानमंत्री कार्यालय की तरफ से जारी एक बयान के मुताबिक वह सोनपुर केंद्रीय विद्यालय के स्थायी भवन की आधारशिला रखेंगे. एमएमएलपी का निर्माण सौ करोड़ रुपये की लागत से किया जा रहा है और इससे आयात-निर्यात और घरेलू माल ढुलाई में सहूलियत होगी.यह हावड़ा-मुंबई लाइन पर स्थित है, जो झारसुगुडा रेलवे स्टेशन से पांच किलोमीटर की दूरी पर स्थित है. इसके आसपास स्टील, सीमेंट, कागज सहित कई महत्पूर्ण उद्योग स्थित हैं और इन उद्योगों को एमएमएलपी से लाभ मिलेगा.

चुनाव में जाने से पहले नरेंद्र मोदी सरकार उठा सकती है ये ‘5 कदम’ 

बयान में कहा गया है कि 15 किलोमीटर लंबा बलांगीर-बिचुपली नया रेल लाइन तटीय ओडिशा को राज्य के पश्चिमी हिस्से से जोड़ेगा. इससे भुवनेश्वर और पुरी जैसे बड़े शहरों से नई दिल्ली और मुंबई के बीच यात्रा समय में कमी आएगी. प्रधानमंत्री 813 किलोमीटर लंबे झारसुगुडा- विजयनगरम रेलमार्ग और संबलपुर-अंगुल लाइन के विद्युतीकरण को भी राष्ट्र को समर्पित करेंगे. 1085 करोड़ रुपये की लागत से इन परियोजनाओं को पूरा किया गया है.

लोकसभा चुनाव जीतने के लिए बीजेपी की रणनीति, कार्यकर्ताओं को दिया यह ‘6 सूत्रीय मंत्र’

प्रधानमंत्री केरल में राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग संख्या 66 पर कोल्लम बाइपास का उद्घाटन करेंगे. यह 13 किलोमीटर लंबा दो लेन का बाईपास है और अष्टमुडी झील पर इसमें तीन बड़े पुल बने हुए हैं. इस परियोजना से अलपुझा और तिरूवनंतपुरम के बीच यात्रा समय में कमी आएगी और कोल्लम शहर में यातायात भीड़भाड़ कम होगा. तिरूवनंतपुरम में मोदी पद्मनाभस्वामी मंदिर में दर्शन करेंगे और वहां श्रद्धालुओं की सुविधाओं के लिए बनने वाले स्थान की पट्टिका का अनावरण करेंगे. 

मिशन 2019 पर मंथन: पीएम मोदी का कांग्रेस पर निशाना, बोले- वे मजबूर सरकार चाहते हैं ताकि रक्षा सौदा में दलाली कर सके

सीएम पटनायक पीएम मोदी के कार्यक्रम में नहीं होंगे शामिल 

ओडिशा के मुख्यमंत्री नवीन पटनायक प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के राज्य के एक दिवसीय दौरे के दौरान उनके आधिकारिक कार्यक्रम में हिस्सा नहीं लेंगे, क्योंकि वह राज्य सरकार के कार्यक्रमों में व्यस्त रहेंगे. आधिकारिक सूत्रों ने इस बारे में बताया है. प्रधानमंत्री पश्चिमी ओडिशा के बलांगीर की यात्रा के दौरान आधारभूत संरचना विकास, संपर्क और व्यापार में सहूलियत पर कई परियोजनाएं शुरू करेंगे. पटनायक राज्य सरकार के ‘कृषि ओडिशा’ कार्यक्रम में व्यस्त रहने की वजह से प्रधानमंत्री के कार्यक्रम में हिस्सा नहीं लेंगे. पटनायक को बैठक में किसानों को संबोधित करना है.

Arvind Kejriwal Visits Country’s Best Cow Shelter, Takes A Shot At BJP


Arvind Kejriwal compared the cow shelter in Delhi and Haryana.

Sonipat: 

It is a “sin” to seek votes in the name of cows, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday even as he accused the BJP-led Haryana government of not allocating sufficient funds for cattle fodder.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief visited a cow shelter in Sonipat’s village Saidpur.

“It is wrong to seek votes and play politics in the name of cows which is currently happening in the country,” Mr Kejriwal said, addressing a gathering in the village.

“I feel, maybe I am wrong, that it is a sin to seek votes in the name of cows,” he said.

He claimed the Delhi government was running the “country’s best” cow shelter in Bawana.

“Nobody knows that the country’s best cow shelter is being run by the Delhi government,” he said.

He accused the BJP-led Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) of not releasing funds for cow fodder.

“In Delhi, the MCD is supposed to contribute Rs 20 and the Delhi government is supposed to contribute Rs 5 for cow (fodder) per day. But Delhi government raised it to Rs 20 from Rs 5 so that Rs 40 could be contributed per cow per day,” Mr Kejriwal said.

“Now, the Delhi government is giving Rs 20 per cow per day but the BJP-led MCD has not released funds for the last three years,” he claimed.

Mr Kejriwal also accused Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government of not paying enough for cow fodder.

“I have come to know that the Haryana government releases Rs 140 per cow per year. It works out to be around 40 paise for a cow per day,” he said.

“I want to say that if you seek votes in the name of cows, then you should also pay enough for their fodder,” he said.

21 Bodies Found On US-Mexico Border After Gang Shootout As Donald Trump Visits


Donald Trump has been pushing for a wall at the US-Mexico border to keep out criminals and gangsters

Mexico City: 

Mexican authorities said Thursday they had found 21 bodies on the US-Mexican border after a drug-gang shootout in a town near where President Donald Trump was due to visit later in the day.

The bodies — some of them badly burned — were found Wednesday in the border town of Miguel Aleman, about 170 miles (270 kilometers) from McAllen, Texas, the city Trump was due to visit as he continues his push to build his long-sought border wall.

“We have reports there was a shootout yesterday (Wednesday) between two criminal groups that ended with 21 people dead,” the security spokesman for the state of Tamaulipas, Luis Alberto Rodriguez, told Mexican TV news channel Milenio.

“Some of them were burned. Seven vehicles were also located… It was a confrontation between two rival groups that are involved in a turf war over drug-trafficking routes.”

The Mexican army found the bodies in a remote area following a tip-off, he said.

Tamaulipas has become one of the most violent states in Mexico as rival drug cartels fight each other for its strategic position on the US border.

Mexico has been racked by drug-related violence in recent years — something Trump has alluded to in arguing his wall is needed to keep out violent criminals and narcotics.

McAllen, where he was meeting with border patrol agents, sits across from Tamaulipas. The US State Department has issued its most severe travel warning for the state because of violent crime, classifying it alongside countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

More than 200,000 people have been murdered in Mexico since the government deployed the army to fight the country’s powerful drug cartels in 2006, including a record 28,711 in 2017.

Preliminary figures indicate the homicide record was broken again in 2018.

Congress Leader DK Shivakumar Visits Income Tax HQ With Mother For Questioning


DK Shivakumar, known to be an able troubleshooter, is highly prized in the Congress.

Bengaluru: 

Karnataka Minister DK Shivakumar was today called for questioning by the Income Tax department at its Bengaluru office for the second consecutive day in a case of alleged tax evasion. His mother, Gowramma, accompanied him to the Bengaluru headquarters on this occasion. 

The Income Tax department has accused Mr Shivakumar and his associate, SK Sharma, of transferring large amounts of undeclared cash through hawala channels on a “regular basis”. They have also alleged that unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 20 crore seized during raids in New Delhi and Bengaluru was “directly relatable” to him. The Congress, however, maintains that he is a victim of political vendetta.

Mr Shivakumar was earlier summoned yesterday.

The Karnataka minister made headlines in August 2017, when he agreed to accommodate 44 party legislators from Gujarat at a resort to prevent them from being poached by the ruling BJP ahead of a crucial Rajya Sabha election. Soon after, Income Tax officials came knocking on Mr Shivakumar’s door.

While the Congress alleged that the Narendra Modi government was blatantly misusing central agencies to target political opponents, the Income Tax department swore that its raid had nothing to do with the lawmakers he had taken under his wing. The episode finally ended with Congress candidate Ahmed Patel keeping his seat in the upper house.

Mr Shivakumar’s travails didn’t. The Minister was asked to appear before Income Tax officials last July and August, and the Enforcement Directorate registered a money-laundering case against him and a few others in September. Several properties linked to the Congress leader were also raided on August 2 last year.

What PM Modi Said On His Multiple Foreign Visits


PM Modi said there were many international forums and multiple summits. (File)

New Delhi: 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today responded to criticism that he took too many foreign trips in the past four years. “If someone less than the prime minister’s level goes then your voice is not heard, so it has become essential to go on these trips,” PM Modi said in an interview to news agency ANI.

Every prime minister had more or less the same number of foreign trips, said PM Modi. “There is not much difference.”

The reason for his frequent trips abroad was that there were “many international forums and multiple summits” and it had become necessary to go to be heard. Even Manmohan Singh had to do it, he said.

“The difference now is that I club a few nearby countries so that we can save on expenses and get more work done. My effort is to convey India’s message to the world.”

Another difference was that earlier, “no one noticed” when anyone went. “When I go, people notice, since I meet people, do some work, take decisions. And I believe I need to do for the country,” he said.

The government recently told parliament that PM Modi visited over 55 countries in 48 foreign trips since taking over in May 2014.

“Proposal Will Be Assessed Through Expert Committee Visits”


Mumbai University said the recognition is not cancelled, but the process of approval is still on.

New Delhi: 

The University Grants Commission or UGC, the higher education regulator in the country, said the recognition proposal of University of Mumbai’s distance education institute will be further assessed through Expert Committee visits while the varsity said in a separate statement that the recognition is not cancelled, but the process of getting approval is still going on. 

The varsity was responding to media reports which said the courses or programmes run by University of Mumbai’s Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) are not recognized by the UGC. “In fact, the news is based on partial and inadequate information,” it said.

“IDOL, University of Mumbai submitted the fresh application with compliances to the UGC on 5th October, 2018 to get the recognition for IDOL programs. The scrutiny of the proposal is in progress and soon the UGC is expected to respond,” said University of Mumbai statement. 

“Therefore”, the varsity insisted that “the approval of the University of Mumbai’s Institute of Distance & Open Learning has not been cancelled and the process of approval is in progress”.

The Distance Education Bureau, UGC released the list of approved Distance Education Institutes and their corresponding courses for the academic year 2018-19 on October 3 last year and the Mumbai-based university did not feature in the list.

The Commission passed UGC (ODL) Regulations 2017 in the month of November 2017. 

As per this Act every open and distance education institute in India is required to get recognition to the programs from the University Grants Commission. 

One of the important criteria to recognize the ODL programs is to have the higher education institution i.e. University assessed and accredited by National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) and should have scored CGPA of 3.26 on a 4-point scale and should have completed 5 years. 

“The assessment and accreditation process of University of Mumbai has already started, and still continues. Subsequently, the University Grants Commission made the third amendment in the regulation on September 6, 2018. As per the third amendment the ODL institutes have been given relaxation for the process of NAAC till the end of the academic year 2019 -20,” the statement said.

The UGC also said the proposals of MATS University, Chhattisgarh and Sikkim Manipal University, Sikkim will be further assessed through Expert Committee visits and the proposal of Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi is being processed.
