first_imgGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) scrambles as Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell (93) pursues during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Calais Campbell has been a stalwart along the Arizona Cardinals’ defensive line for a while now.A second-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft out of Miami, Campbell became a starter in his second season and has not left the lineup since, becoming a two-time Pro Bowler and team captain over his time with the team.Campbell is about to enter his ninth professional season, and it just so happens to be the final year on his contract. There has been speculation that the team might look to redo his deal and keep him around long term, which is something Campbell would not necessarily be opposed to. LISTEN: Calais Campbell, Cardinals Defensive End Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Your browser does not support the audio element. “I’m really looking forward to the possibility of extending,” he told Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Thursday. “I love being a Cardinal and things have been very good the last eight years, so I’m really looking forward to going forward.”As of now, though, Campbell said his plan is to keep working hard for a team that won 13 games last season and appears poised to be even better this time around. The 29-year-old thinks highly of what the team added in the offseason in pass rusher Chandler Jones and rookie Robert Nkemdiche.“Adding Chandler Jones is huge — he’s an unbelievable talent — and I’m really excited to see what the rookie can do,” Campbell said. “You draft a guy in the first round, he’s very talented; he could have been a top-10 pick, top-5 pick, some people say. I’ve watched a little bit of the film so far and he has a mean first step. I’m really excited to see what he can do.”With Jones and Nkemdiche on board, the possibility exists for Campbell to have one of his best seasons yet. The five sacks he notched in 2005 were his lowest total since his rookie season, and there were more than a few instances where he was on the receiving end of some of head coach Bruce Arians’ criticism. 0 Comments   Share   The ripple effect of having more impact players along the defensive front could be felt all around, and Campbell could be one of the biggest beneficiaries. The timing for a resurgent season could not be much better for him given that he is in a contract year, and while he understands that, it is not something that will change his approach.“The biggest thing is just making sure I take care of the stuff I can,” Campbell said, noting he can’t control everything that’s happening around him. “You give your agent a job, he does it. The front office, everybody’s working hard to figure out something. But all I can control is just making sure I’m in great shape, making sure I’m working hard, making sure that when the time comes I perform my best and let the rest of it take care of itself.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Campbell has long maintained the coach’s comments don’t bother him because the goal is simply to get better, and with others in the defensive front seven deserving attention he may face fewer double teams this season than he has in years past. It stands to reason that with just one blocker to beat, Campbell could wreak more havoc and be a force whose impact also shows up in the stat books.While Campbell is a great talent, it helps to have the kind of talent around him he will in Jones, Nkemdiche, Corey Peters, Frostee Rucker and others.“It’s exciting,” he said. “When you see teams are not going to be able to just double-team me the whole time — they’re going to have to rotate and double-team other guys, and pick their poison because I feel all of us are going to play with our hair on fire and have a reason for teams to want to double-team us and take us off our game,” he said. “But the biggest thing is I’m trying to make sure I’m ready to beat double-teams; if I still get double-teamed, given the circumstances for me, I’m going to make sure I’m prepared and I’m still working on still refining some of my moves, the way I normally do, but really I’ve been trying to work on seeing how I can defeat double-teams as well.” Top Stories last_img read more

first_imgThe Empire State Building, Times Square and a spot of retail therapy on Madison Avenue are all usually on the hit-list for visitors to the Big Apple. However, offbeat guidebook Secret New York by TM Rives successfully steers you towards some of the iconic city’s lesser-known attractions.From Central Park to Brooklyn and Staten Island, the guide covers all areas of the city, each chapter with its own street-level map.You are largely encouraged to explore New York with your eyes wide open and preferably on foot (or bicycle). However, the eerie City Hall ghost stop, deserted for over 60 years, can be spied from the relative comfort of the number 6 subway train.Many of the places Rives describes are secret, hidden, wrapped in wonder or mystery, while others are immediately recognisable, yet overlooked. For example, the Marilyn Monroe subway grate, a sure spot for anyone looking to re-enact the most famous flash in cinema history.As well as information on the origins of these unusual sites, what makes this unconventional guide such a pleasurable read is the input from real New Yorkers. The voices of the artists, taxi drivers and street sweepers that make up this amazing city can be heard throughout, lending the book humour and authenticity.Outside a store on Broadway a clock is embedded into the sidewalk. A cashier who works there sums up the attitude this book aims to beat: “I must have stepped on it a million times…But that’s New York, you get jaded.”New York is not the only major city destination to have its secrets unveiled. There are a number of similarly eccentric guides in the series, including ‘secret’ London, Florence and Paris to name a few.These guides are perfect if you are an intrepid urban explorer looking to avoid typical tourist fare, or just curious to find out a little more about some of the world’s most famous cities.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Related11 best things to do in New York for freeFancy a transatlantic holiday but you’re on a budget?

first_imgTwo people, a man and a woman, both 22-years-old, died in an accident in Nicosia early on Tuesday morning, the fourth fatal accident in the capital in 12 days.The crash took place at 3.35am on Kallipoleos Avenue.The two University of Cyprus students, Paraskevas Savva and Elena Nicolae, were on their way home from the former’s birthday party when the young woman, who was driving, lost control of the vehicle.Police reported that the car slammed into a tree, hit the wall of a block of flats and crashed into two parked cars before it overturned.The fire service, with the aid of hydraulic tools, managed to free the two students who were trapped in the mangled remains.An ambulance took them to Nicosia general hospital where their death was confirmed.Kallipoleos Street was closed for traffic until 8.30am.The causes of the accident are being investigated and police have asked anyone who has any information to contact Nicosia Traffic Police on 22-808023, their nearest police station or call the citizens’ hotline on 1460.According to Nicosia traffic police deputy director Stelios Panayides, the cause of the accident was excessive speed.It is not yet clear if the victims were wearing seat belts.This is the fourth fatal accident in 12 days and police appealed to the public to adhere to the road traffic code.“Excessive speed, not using a seat belt and a helmet and drivers who have consumed alcohol are deadly causes of accidents,” Panayides said.In a statement, the University of Cyprus expressed deep sorrow for the loss of its two students.According to the university, Nicolae was a third-year student in the Department of Social and Political Sciences, while Savva studied Economics.“The University of Cyprus, the School of Social and Political Sciences and the School of Management and Economic Sciences, in which the two late students were studying, express their deep sorrow and pain at the untold tragedy and extend sincere condolences to their families and loved ones,” the statement said.“The University of Cyprus’ flags will be flying half-mast in mourning until the funerals.”You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Months after his escape,com Inc. an aggressive and costly expansion that would threaten convenience chains like 7-Eleven Inc. quick-service sandwich shops like Subway and Panera Bread and mom-and-pop pizzerias and taco trucks Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos sees eliminating meal-time logjams in busy cities as the best way for Amazon to reinvent the brick-and-mortar shopping experience where most spending still occurs But hes still experimenting with the best format: a convenience store that sells fresh prepared foods as well as a limited grocery selection similar to 7-Eleven franchises or a place to simply pick up a quick bite to eat for people in a rush similar to the UK-based chain Pret a Manger one of the people said An Amazon spokeswoman declined to comment The company unveiled its first cashierless store near its headquarters in Seattle in 2016 and has since announced two additional sites in Seattle and one in Chicago Two of the new stores offer only a limited selection of salads sandwiches and snacks showing that Amazon is experimenting with the concept simply as a meal-on-the-run option Two other stores including the original AmazonGo also have a small selection of groceries making it more akin to a convenience store Shoppers use a smartphone app to enter the store Once they scan their phones at a turnstile they can grab what they want from a range of salads sandwiches drinks and snacks — and then walk out without stopping at a cash register Sensors and computer-vision technology detect what shoppers take and bills them automatically eliminating checkout lines The challenge to Amazons plan is the high cost of opening each location The original AmazonGo in downtown Seattle required more than $1 million in hardware alone according to a person familiar with the matter Narrowing the focus to prepared food-to-go would reduce the upfront cost of opening each store because it would require fewer cameras and sensors Prepared foods also have wider profit margins than groceries which would help decrease the time it takes for the stores to become profitable News of the companys potential ambitions for AmazonGo sent shares of grocery and retail rivals

DC event last week Bezos said Amazon was “very interested” in physical stores but only if it has something new to offer “If we offer a me-too product its not going to work” he said Such an expansion could put Amazon back into an investment cycle Bezos is willing to lose money on long-term initiatives when he smells opportunity Amazon Web Services the companys fast-growing and profitable cloud-computing business was unprofitable for years and Bezos stuck with it according to a person familiar with the matter Amazon also routinely loses money expanding internationally Adding 3000 convenience stores would make AmazonGo among the biggest chains in US The internet giant is considering plans to have about 10 locations open by the end of this year about 50 locations in major metro areas in 2019 and then as many as 3000 by 2021 said the people who requested anonymity discussing internal plans Opening multiple locations in proximity like its doing in Seattle could also help Amazon reduce costs by centralizing food production in one kitchen serving many stores The US currently has 155000 convenience stores with 122500 of them combined with gas stations according to industry group NACS Non-fuel purchases at convenience stores totaled $233 billion in 2016 with cigarettes and other tobacco products the best-selling items Amazon is targeting dense urban areas with lots of young busy affluent residents willing to spend a little more than a typical fast-food experience for better quality food the people said The target locations make it less of a threat to suburban gas station-convenience store combinations and more of a threat to big cities quick-service eateries such as Subway Restaurants Panera Bread Co and Pret a Manger UK-based Pret has 450 locations worldwide including New York Boston and Chicago focusing on fresh healthy grab-and-go foods AmazonGo will be more of a threat to fast-casual restaurants if it is targeting cities said Jeff

trademark turbans and holding their weapons close These could easily be photos from the Punjabi Mussalman company of 57th Wilde’s Rifles (FF) from anywhere in India from the early 19th century However they are rare photographs that document the first European sojourn of the Indian soldier in the early 20th century India — a British colony then — with its sizeable trained military force had dispatched two infantry divisions and a cavalry brigade to the Western Front to halt the German juggernaut Belgium a neutral state according to the Treaty of London (1839) was invaded by Germany in 1914 An exhibition showcasing India’s contribution during that time — “India in Flander Fields” — which was inaugurated by King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium on their recent State visit to India is currently on display at the Capital’s National Museum A coffee table book by the same name was also unveiled at the Capital’s Maneckshaw Centre last week The exhibition has been jointly curated by Indian military historian Rana Chhina of United Services Institution of India (USI) and Belgian historian Dominiek Dendooven who works at In Flanders Fields Museum (Ypres) “We at the USI had been involved with the centenary celebrations of India’s involvement in the first World War (WWI) which changed the course of world history This is an offshoot of that in a bilateral way This is our way of remembering and acknowledging the Indian soldiers who had died fighting for Belgium’s freedom a century ago which not many people know about” says Rana Chhina Chhina and fellow curator Dendooven had been working on this exhibition and book for about four years The exhibition has illustrations artist impressions photographs maps artefacts — weapons and uniforms along with letters and postcards All share the story of the Indian soldier who at that time was ill-prepared for Europe Both culturally and geographically “They came in late 1914 still wearing their cotton summer uniforms and were not prepared or equipped to fight against a behemoth continental Army A contemporary print from 1915 depicting a Belgian soldier supporting an injured Indian sepoy while a French west-African tirailleurs senegalais ((Senegalese rifleman) walks alongside Also the European winter was a first for them Frostbite and exposure to the elements added to their woes” says Dendooven who has worked extensively on the contribution of the non-European soldiers in WWI “We had photographs of Indian soldiers and Chinese labourers There was information but nothing had been written about them I wanted to know why was there an influx of people from other parts of the world in this small area of Belgium” says Dendooven on the need to document foreign soldiers during WWI Since information was in abundance collecting historical material was not that difficult There were written records about the soldiers “This was recorded history in India and Belgium Also there was a sensor who read every bit of correspondence that came in and went out There are records of soldiers writing home to small obscure villages and recounting their European experiences The Indian Army and the USI had records of them” says Chhina It’s interesting to note that how both sides — Indian and Belgian — were in equal shock “No Belgian had seen an Indian before and no Indian had ever seen a non-elite white person earlier They were curious about each other’s cultures Also they stayed with ordinary folk in Belgium and realised that not all white people are as brutal as the British were to Indians in India” adds Dendooven The European experience also opened the Indian soldier’s minds to educating women after seeing the liberation and sense of equanimity that women enjoyed in Belgium “Many Indian soldiers wrote back and sent money to help build schools for girls They realisarted that the only way forward was through education” adds Chhina “We need to understand that WWI set things in motion which ultimately led to the demise of the British Raj Many times we focus only on the popular political reasoning and ignore the other subaltern narratives Look at the political and social impact it must have had where the Indian soldier is not fighting against but alongside other European soldiers” asserts Chhina The sentiment is shared by Dendooven “Here is the Indian soldier fighting for the Independence of another country but what about their own Independence And after the WWI they come back and then Jallianwala Bagh happened There was this huge sense of betrayal wherein after having laid down their lives for the British Empire this is what they got That’s when the narrative changed to poorna Swaraj” concludes Dendooven The exhibition is on at the National Museum till November 30

government order Justice K Ravichndrababu held that the impugned reservation was bad in law and violated Art 14 of the Constitution (Equality before law) Representational image AFP He also held that

fresh merit list and conduct the counselling for admissions accordingly He had on 11 July reserved orders on the petitions by Darnish Kumar a student represented by his parents and two others and

NEET conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) More than 50 percent of the questions in the NEET were based on the CBSE syllabus and hence there was an inequality in the all-India exam it had contended Assailing the Government Order the petitioners had submitted that the Supreme court had clearly stated that when admission is based on entrance examination NEET it should make no

the leading contendors for the spot But former Australia captain Steve Waugh has thrown in the name of Moises Henriques and said that he should be considered for the Test team for the Ashes series against England “Moises Henriques has been in good form the last couple years in domestic cricket (and) I think he’s ready to play Test match cricket again” Waugh was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz “He’s a very good player It’s good he’s put his name back up there again No6 is up for debate I guess it’s Maxwell or Stoinis or maybe Henriques or maybe a couple of other options there” Waugh played 168 Tests for Australia from 1985-2004 and is considered one of the best captains in world cricket He added that Australia should also have a speciallist wicketkeeper for the series “Again we’re talking about who is going to be the keeper but they tend to focus on the ‘keeper scoring runs not how he’s taking the ball” Waugh said “(Peter) Nevill was doing a great job and got dropped and now (Matthew) Wade’s actually improved his ‘keeping and now they’re talking about dropping him “(Nevill) was the fall guy last time He’s a fantastic cricketer But you’ve got to be fair to Matthew Wade now He kept pretty well in the subcontinent It’s difficult to know where they go from there” Wuagh also opined that England will struggle in Australia without star all-rounder Ben Stokes and they won’t be able to win the Ashes “England without Ben Stokes if he doesn’t come I don’t think they can win the Ashes” he said “I think if it was anyone in the Australian side they wouldn’t be picked You can’t do that these days in public It just didn’t look good and it’s a bad image for the game “I can’t see England winning and it’s too much pressure on (Stuart) Broad and (James) Anderson and they’re getting a bit older and I can’t see them playing five Test matches straight” he added “I think Australia will win 3-1” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt

Maharashtra’s sugar and that this share could well cross the 50 per cent mark in the next couple of years The marginalisation of cooperatives — which accounted for 95 per cent or more of the state’s sugar output in the early 2000s — parallels a trend seen in dairying as well Till the onset of liberalisation India hardly had any large organised private dairies barring the odd Nestle or Milkfood But now there are 20 or more players handling at least 5 lakh litres each of milk per day In fact the organised private sector’s share in the country’s milk procurement probably exceeds that of cooperatives — something unimaginable during the heyday of Operation Flood The breaching of Maharashtra’s cooperative bastion extending from sugar mills to banks seems only part of a larger process The driving force here is competition unleashed by the de-licensing of the dairy and sugar industries in the 1990s coupled with the gradual withdrawal of state support to cooperatives The new capacities created in the private sector owe largely to the strength of risk capital and entrepreneurial initiative sans subsidies equity participation or loan guarantees from governments Competition has meant that only the better-run cooperatives with professional managements insulated from political pressures — the likes of Amul and the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative (IFFCO) — have seen their business grow Others have fallen or are increasingly falling by the wayside And that isn’t a bad thing at all Cooperatives ultimately are businesses whose raison d’être lies in servicing the interests of its members whether they are sugarcane growers or dairy farmers So long as they are efficiently processing and marketing the produce supplied by their members to guarantee the best possible price these organisations have relevance even in a modern globalised economy The fact that the world’s largest dairy products exporter New Zealand’s Fonterra is a cooperative just as Amul is probably suggests that agro-processing lends itself naturally to producer-owned as opposed to investor-owned business ventures But as worldwide experience shows these organisations do well only when they are allowed to operate free of political and bureaucratic interference India is perhaps among the few countries where we still have separate departments and registrars for cooperatives Most cooperatives including those in Maharashtra have served mainly as vehicles for dispensing political patronage and siphoning off public funds That is certainly not what they were originally intended to

demand for funds required to run parties and fight elections was addressed by shaking down corporate donors for unaccounted black money On the supply sidecorporate donors were willing to contribute black money in exchange for licences and permits Two decades after liberalisationthe same corrupt equilibrium prevails because governments still control key aspects of resource allocation (for instancespectrum and land) Discretionary allocation of such resources helps those in power raise funds and those who contribute to get ahead of their competition Turning to election expenditurea possible desire to create an openlevel electoral playing field translated into low spending limits Candidates caught transgressing these limits faced disqualification Unrealistic limits led candidates to under-declare their expenditures (leading Atal Bihari Vajpayee to declare that all members of Parliament were forced to begin their careers with a lie) This also created a demand for black money rather than legal sources of funds In 1974the Supreme Court ruled that party election expenditures were to be counted towards candidates expenditures Parliament overturned this ruling by amending the Representation of the People Acteffectively removing the ceiling on election expenseswhich then grew substantially Periodic attemptssuch as the Dinesh Goswami and Indrajit Gupta Committee reportsto provide partial state funding of election expenses did not go farbut had some impact by reducing the campaign period from 21 to 14 days (from 1996)marginally increasing expenditure ceilings and providing parties with air time on government electronic media In 1985corporate contributions to political parties were re-legalised and from 2003made tax-deductible Parties were now required to file income tax returns disclosing their sources of incomeexcept for contributions below Rs 20000 Renewed legality and tax deductibility of corporate contributions has not resulted in a deluge of open giving This is because elections witness a substantial turnover of parties in power Corporate donors reason that they are better off contributing to parties covertly so as to avoid adverse impacts when a non-favoured party wins the election Anonymity trumps tax-deductibility Parties continue to garner significant resources through contributions below Rs 20000 from unidentified donorsraising questions over whether this represents black money being channelled into party coffersrather than donations from loyalists Parties income tax declarationsnow publicly available thanks to the Right to Information Actshow that in 2008-09 the Congress raised Rs 480 million in donations out of an income of Rs 4970 millionand the Bharatiya Janata Party raised Rs 1960 million in donations out of an income of Rs 2200 million Donations below Rs 20000 constituted Rs 201 million and Rs 1654 million respectively The Election Commissions aggressive monitoring of overt election expenses also has perverse consequences Expenditure has simply been driven underground Candidates can no longer spend lavishly on shows of support like mass rallies So candidates now simply pay cash to voters Elections typically trigger a covert spending arms race Paid news is one of the fallouts Electoral finance laws also lead parties to seek out wealthy candidatesor those with the capacity to raise and distribute significant amounts of black money (thus increasing the chances of criminals obtaining party tickets) Wealthier candidates are more successful According to National Election Watchin 2009of 322 candidates who declared assets greater than Rs 50 millionone-third emerged victoriouswhereas only 19 per cent of candidates with assets between Rs 5 and 50 million triumphed While more spending does not guarantee victorythe only detailed examination of actual election expenses by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies in 1999 suggests that candidates need to spend above a minimum threshold to be competitive Winners and runners-up in 1999 spent an estimated average of Rs 83 million and Rs 68 million respectivelyfar above the then expenditure limit of Rs 15 million Black moneys dominance also affects real sectors of the economy Devesh Kapur and Milan Vaishnav demonstrate the existence of a political-business cycle in the construction industrywith activity slowing down during electionspossibly because funds are diverted to campaigns There is anotherlarger impact of election finance laws: Black money flows to key individuals who are likely to come to power Once in powerthese individuals raise more resources through preferential allocation of governmental favours to the private sector Their stranglehold over funds enables them to favour supporters and marginalise competitorshelping them gain dominance over their parties Such individuals typically rely on family members to manage their treasure chestsa factor leading to the emergence of political dynasties across party lines State funding is a potential solution to Indias electoral ills The Confederation of Indian Industry had recommended raising money through corporate contributions to a state-managed fund or a cess on excise duty Yogendra Yadav recommends that government allocate Rs 100 per vote polled to constituency units of partiesto be used for legitimate political expenses This

provides about 200 litres per person per day Related News Heavily subsidised water for domestic users massive leakages and theft in pipelines and the staggering cost of dam projects in the works mean the current water tariff in Mumbai is unsustainable says Sharvari Patwa Soon after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi government announced 667 liters of clean water daily to people for free the Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) quickly complimented itself claiming it is already supplying 566 liters of free water to Mumbaikars every day “Currently residents pay Rs 4 for 1000 litres for which BMC spends Rs 990 in purification and supply Every family is provided 1075 litres water every day of which they are charged for only 509 litres The balance 566 litres is free” Sena corporator and BMC’s standing committee member Rahul Shewale claims Official data suggests that while the BMC provides about 200 litres per person per day the production and supply cost is actually Rs 1137 per 1000 litres While Shiv Sena may jump to take credit for subsidised water it remains a fact that the BMC has been providing subsidised water for 40 years now But such subsidies may not be the best way to encourage water conservation And given the rising demand for water the civic body has little choice but to hike user charges for water in the long run To be fair the reality is not lost on BMC either In its budget for 2012-13 the civic body had proposed a revision in water charges in proportion to the increase in the expenditure on salary of employees administration operation and maintenance cost power supply and bulk water supply on actual basis but not exceeding 8 per cent every year Since then the water rates have been hiked twice from Rs 35 to Rs 4 per 1000 litres in June 2012 and further to Rs 432 in June 2013 for residential users What is worrisome though is the increasing gap between the cost of production the charges levied and the cross-subsidisation of residential consumers According to BMC data the civic body supplies about 2000 million litres of water daily to an estimated six million residential population and 65 million slum-dwellers While it continues to give a 65 per cent subsidy to residential users it cross-subsidises this with higher charges levied on commercial users which is Rs 60 per 1000 litres of water So while the charges for residential use have increased 17 times in the past 40 years the same has increased by 50 times for commercial users The water charge for residential use was 25 paise per 1000 litres in 1974 Since then the water tariff has been increased nine times of which five were during the rule of Shiv Sena in BMC But it’s still low — Rs 432 for residents and Rs 325 for slum-dwellers The civic administration however incurs a cost of Rs 1137 to supply 1000 litres of water on transportation and filtering of water before it is supplied to residents While Shiv Sena may promise free water to the city both the party and the administration are aware of the widening gap between the cost of production and user charges An analysis of data provided by BMC shows this gap has widened since 2001 While the civic body provided a subsidy of Rs 225 per 1000 litres in 2001-02 the current figure is Rs 705 With an estimated Rs 42000 crore worth of ongoing and proposed water supply projects in the pipeline senior civic officials admit it will be difficult to fund these without a significant water tariff hike The civic body estimates a massive 13 per cent increase in the city’s population in the next 10 years from 12433 lakh in 2012 to 140 lakh by 2021 In another decade it is expected to rise to 1566 lakh The basis for the estimates was the projected increase in high-rises based on ongoing and proposed redevelopment projects Using these estimates to justify increase in water charges the BMC has hiked tariff for residential societies from Rs 350 to Rs 432 per 1000 litres in the last two years Societies with per capita consumption of over 150 litres per day have to pay as per telescopic rates adopted in 2008 It also increased water charges in slums and chawls from Rs 225 to Rs 350 per 1000 litres Rs 18 to Rs 30 per 1000 litres for commercial establishments Rs 25 to Rs 40 per 1000 litres for factories and businesses and Rs 38 to Rs 60 per 1000 litres for hotels rated three stars and above At current water tariff a family of five with a total consumption of around 675 litres per day now spends Rs 875 per month as opposed to the earlier Rs 71 a month For residential users any increase in the water usage from 150 litres per capita per day would mean telescopic rates A total of 26 lakh households are provided water through 36 lakh water connections each of which on an average serves about eight families The water supply is provided for one-to-four hours through a 1000-km-long water supply network The current allocation of BMC’s water supply between the island city eastern suburbs and western suburbs is quite unequal as water is not allocated as per the zonal population For example residents of south Mumbai on an average receive more water supply compared to those in the eastern suburbs (37 per cent less water) which have the second largest population and a large number of industrial establishments An average Mumbaikar pays less than one paisa (00035) per litre of water (in stark contrast to the Rs 15 for a litre of bottled water) Interestingly while the city supplies less than 10 per cent of its total water to bulk and commercial consumers it earns about 60 percent of its total revenue from them Unlike the BMC which can fix its own water tariff a municipal council in the state such as Badlapur charges water tariff fixed by the Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran (MJP) The water charges for domestic users in the state are thrice the price charged by BMC In rural Maharashtra a domestic user pays double the amount paid by a Mumbaikar for water In Shanghai which has similar demography and population parameters the pricing of water across all types of consumers is fixed with the sole idea of covering the maximum operational cost incurred by the water utilities As such a domestic consumer in Shanghai where the per capita consumption is 155 litres per capita daily (LPCD) pays nearly Rs 20 for 1000 litres Although residents usually make much noise and express reluctance at paying higher water charges the water tanker business in the city shows otherwise Private water tankers in Mumbai charge anywhere between of Rs 3000 to Rs 4500 for a 10000-litre tanker of clean drinking water While the cost to procure and deliver water has steadily increased for the civic administration Shewale’s statement of promising free water indicates the political parties’ reluctance to implement the 8 per cent water rate hike every year “If this happens it will be very bad economics The cost of procurement is likely to jump further once additional water from Gargai and Pinjal starts flowing The cost is expected to escalate up to Rs 2110 Given the usual cost overrun due to delays the actual cost is likely to escalate much further Good economics demands that water tariff should go up along with that” said Dhaval Desai author of study titled ‘Time Is Running Out: Does Mumbai Have Enough Water’ brought out by Observer Research Foundation in Mumbai “The country’s richest civic body with an annual budget of Rs 27000 crore has no system of compiling water consumption data for its 24 wards rendering water consumption calculations merely a guess work” states a 2012 report by Desai Water Meters The civic administration has provided roughly 383 lakh metered connections of which more than 90 per cent are defunct forcing the BMC to bill consumers on the basis of average readings Civic officials say the annual revenue generated by collection of water charges is on an average Rs 1000 crore which is only for 2242 MLD BMC does not know where the revenue for the remaining 1200 MLD supplied goes By BMC’s own admission about 700 million litres of water daily (20 per cent ) is lost due to leakages and thefts every day from its 1000-km long pipeline network The figure is more than the neighbouring Pune’s total water supply daily (650 MLD) In addition about 160 MLD of water is stolen by private water tankers which are estimated to be around 10000 in number each having a minimum carrying capacity of 10000 litres “Most of these tankers make multiple trips daily and charge Rs 4000 per tanker BMC is blatantly allowing illegal profits amounting to Rs 4 crore per day and 1460 crore annually” says Desai Meanwhile an ambitious plan to install automatic water meters (AMRs) first mooted in 2009 is yet to be completed?
