to divert water from the Brahmaputra river from Tibet to the parched Xinjiang a day after the Chinese foreign ministry debunked a media report on it Representational image Getty images Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post on Monday reported that Chinese engineers were testing techniques that could be used to build the tunnel the world’s longest to divert water from the Brahmaputra river in Tibet close to Arunachal Pradesh to arid regions of Xinjiang "There is no such direction from the central government and I have never heard of any plan laid out for a Tibet-Xinjiang tunnel project" Zhao Shijie chief engineer of the Dianzhong water diversion project told the state-run Global Timeson Wednesday Zhao said that this was not the first time he has heard rumours about a Tibet-Xinjiang tunnel "but they are baseless" Yesterday Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying rejected as "false and untrue" the media report China will continue to attach great importance to the cross-border river cooperation she said The idea of sending Tibetan water to Xinjiang dates back to the late 1950s "March into the Desert" a famous article by meteorologist geologist and educator Zhu Kezhen (1890-1974) that has long featured in Chinese schoolbooks advises diverting water to Xinjiang’s arid plains the Global Times report said A plan to divert water from Tibet to the northern parts of China was heatedly discussed in the 1990s Over the decade 208 lawmakers and 118 political advisers raised proposals and motions on the plan according to a 2006 report by the Southern Weekly However the dream of massive water diversions has never been approved due to concerns of the huge cost and potential for damaging the landscape the report said "I firmly oppose the project as Xinjiang cannot afford this project" Mei Xinyu an associate researcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation told the daily The estimated cost of diverting water from Tibet to Xinjiang would be five times that of Xinjiang’s annual GDP It may depend massively on central government subsidies and the assistance of local governments in other regions which likely would lead to

Barcelona Open And only a poor return on his break point opportunities denied Nadal just as convincing a scoreline as the Spaniard took only two of his 13 chances The 14-time Grand Slam champion had break points in the fourth and sixth game of the first set but had to settle for breaking Goffin’s resolve in a tie-break Nadal finally broke in the third game of the second set before having to stave off four break points on his own serve to consolidate his lead at 3-1 The level of play from both players rose in a remarkable game with Goffin serving 2-4 down as he kept Nadal at bay for four break

Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic or Svetlana Kuznetsova in Saturday’s final Written by Naveed Iqbal | New Delhi | Updated: February 8 2016 9:48 am Financial woes of the corporations have led to repeated strikes by employees An ongoing strike by the sanitation workers has led to garbage piling up Ravi Kanojia Related News The municipal corporations of the city that have been battling a severe shortage of funds for over a year drove the national capital to a civic standstill for 10 days Thousands of safaikaramcharis teachers doctors nurses engineers and other support staff under the MCDs shut shop and staged protests all over the city demanding unpaid salaries arrears and unification as a permanent solution to the recurring crisis According to stakeholders the financial crisis of the three civic bodies is rooted in the trifurcation of the erstwhile Municipal Corporation of Delhi The move became effective in April 2012 with fresh corporation elections in the city The 272 wards of the unified corporation were divided between the newly created North (104) South (104) and East (64) municipal corporations along with the former’s debts and liabilities READ: How NDMC managed to avoid the pitfalls Aimed at decentralisation of municipal governance in the capital trifurcation tripled the number of officers of the corporation and made it top heavy One commissioner was replaced by three 11 additional commissioners were put in place instead of six Seventy new posts of heads of various departments were created since the 35 from earlier could not be divided Thirty committees (education health etc) tripled to 90 Trifurcation also meant three mayors three leaders of the house three opposition leaders three chairmen of the standing committees and three times the cost of running the deliberative and administrative wings Subhash Arya South Delhi mayor and one of the senior-most members of the civic body at 68 years old said the corporation’s salary bill was approximately Rs 1200 crore before trifurcation and is now over Rs 5500 crore “The figure keeps increasing every year and will keep increasing in the years to come” Arya said He also said trouble first began in 2000 with the implementation of the Fifth Pay Commission’s recommendations but timely grants from the state government made things manageable “Until then our internal income and expenditure managed to strike a balance The Fifth Pay Commission was implemented with the help of a Rs 100 crore loan from the Congress government Post that the unified corporation kept borrowing a few hundred crores of rupees every year” Arya said He has been a member of the MCD in various capacities since the municipalities of Delhi were conceived in their current form in 1997 Also Read: No salary since Nov arrears pending for 4 years These loans borrowed regularly from the Sheila Dikshit government reached approximately Rs 2051 crore at the time of trifurcation Therefore South civic body was created with a deficit of Rs 850 crore North with Rs 750 crore and East with a loan liability of Rs 451 crore South corporation claims to have paid off most of this loan and hopes to become “loan free” in the next financial year However since trifurcation South has not borrowed any amount from the government while the North and East received ‘ways and means’ loans from the Delhi government twice in the last five years The last budget of the unified corporation was Rs 6691 crore The most recent budget of the North Corporation alone is Rs 6635 crore The three corporation’s total budget (proposed) is Rs 14500 crore for the next financial year Property tax is a major contributor to internal revenue in all three corporations but distribution remains partial to the South Expenditure wise North has the highest salary bill with five hospitals under its jurisdiction East has the lowest category of colonies as per property tax and one civic hospital South started a multi-speciality hospital in 2015 but only OPD services are operational as of now Apart from financial woes there are other ways trifurcation has caused chaos Officials state the city has lost a sense of uniformity in the years since MCD was split Despite the same party being in majority in all three corporations parking rates property and other taxes differ in all three corporations Former Delhi mayor Yogendra Chandolia (mayor 2013-14) stated that while the decisions at the party level are taken for all three corporations it is during implementation that the differences begin to take shape “Sometimes one corporation does not implement a hike in tax or discontinuation of a service until another corporation does This is up to the deliberative wing of the corporation and comes after the political decision has been taken” Chandolia said In certain cases one of the three corporations is made the “lead corporation” on a particular matter Chandolia argues that this also leads to delays “For example North is the lead corporation on promotions Until all three corporations sit together decisions concerning promotions cannot be made This sometimes causes delays” he said In case of toll SDMC is the lead corporation This means that the South corporation takes decisions on behalf of all three corporations “In 2013 there was election after election and South corporation delayed the decision to increase tax and this caused revenue loss to the other corporations” Officials said owing to the weak financial status of North and East corporation workers prefer being posted in the South “where at least your monthly salary is guaranteed” For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | Mumbai | Published: February 18 2016 12:50 pm “I enjoy

fading of the Brazilian magic Stories of legends who sold out and of new stars being shoe brand-puppets have often been used to strengthen the assumption that “futebol arte” has lost out to “futebol

2016 11:35 am Top News The Union government has announced implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations The commission recommended a 2355 per cent increase in overall emoluments for employees Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has congratulated central government officers employees and pensioners on “a historic rise in their salary & allowances through the 7th CPC” Yet the hike — at around 14 per cent — is the lowest in 70 years That the latest pay hikes are much lower than those in the past is welcome It limits the inflationary impact of the pay revisions The sixth pay commission for instance had recommended a 20 per cent hike which was doubled by the time it was implemented and eventually amounted to about 54 per cent Not surprisingly it was followed by a period of higher expenditure and higher inflation The government this time should be commended for not falling prey to such populism especially at a time when the consumer price inflation remains high As a result the increased payout is expected to bump up overall growth by placing more money in the hands of the consumers but will also have a relatively mild impact on the overall inflation However the total additional outgo of over Rs 1 lakh crore around 07 per cent of the GDP will have an impact on the fiscal deficit for the current financial year That’s because as the FM announced the hike in emoluments will be effective from January 2016 and all arrears will be paid out in the current year itself The only way for the FM to hold on to his promise of meeting fiscal deficit targets is to compromise on the capital expenditure The government faces a tough choice: It cannot afford to increase salaries and pensions which are part of the revenue expenditure without either reducing the capital expenditure which is important to promote growth or taking a hit on the fiscal deficit WATCH VIDEO:7th Pay Commission Is Historic But Not The Way You Think Yet given the fact that pay commission revisions which affect 1 crore government employees happen once in a period of 10 years it was politically unviable for any government to provide a lower rate of increase In fact as the FM noted the latest recommendations made in November 2015 are being implemented more quickly than in the past For instance there was a delay of 19 months and 32 months respectively in the implementation of the fifth and sixth pay commissions Lastly concerns about the affordability of such pay hikes especially during a period of economic stress cannot be divorced from the long-ignored need for a more
