  • Steel firms fear NPAs on iron ore export move - DNA: Mumbai    (2018-06-17T18:30:00Z)
    After Karnataka miners' threat to move the Supreme Court (SC) this week to allow them to export iron ore, the state steel manufacturers have also gone aggressive in their opposition to it. Ramana Kumar, secretary of Karnataka Iron and Steel Manufacturers' Association (Kisma), told DNA Money that if the state-owned National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) and the private miners were permitted to export, iron ore shortage will further increase and result in more non-performing assets (NPAs) and plant shutdowns in the steel industry. "The shortage (of iron ore) for steel manufacturing in the country will increase. Everybody will have to shut down if they (miners) start exporting iron ore. As it is, there is a severe shortage in Karnataka, and if they start exporting then there will be even more serious problem," he said. Kumar said there was an extreme shortage of iron ore in Karnataka following SC's directive in 2013 to regulate its mining to 30 million tonne per annum (mtpa) to curb illegal mining. ...

  • Short on sand, real estate developers in Rajasthan face penalty threat - DNA: Opinion    (2018-06-16T18:30:00Z)
    Faced with the unprecedented crisis of construction sand, the real estate developers in the state are having a tough time coming to terms with Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA) and have thus sought relaxation in the prescribed deadline for completion of their projects registered with RERA.  As there is no provision that addresses a situation like this, these developers have sought intervention of the state government. “We have explained our difficulties to the chief minister and submitted our proposal for relaxation in the deadline to chief secretary and urban department,” said Gopal Gupta chairman of CREDAI, Rajasthan.  According to the real estate developers body, short supply of construction sand has slowed down the construction works by almost 50 per cent.
