Why mnrega cannot succeed


*WHY MNREGA CANNOT SUCCEED* *# Decisions are taken in New Delhi without taking delivery mechanism into consideration* * * *# Absence of village plans* * * *# Incomplete works are never completed* * * *# No compulsion to complete work* * * *# Wage delay keeps people away* * * *# Irrational work. Digging wells or tanks is labour intensive and skilled workers are required but payment is according to volume of earth dug. Hence, working on water structures fetches wage disproportionate to labour. That is why road construction is more popular*

SOLAR SCAM



Govt of India has targetted capacity of 20000 MW of grid connected solar power by 2022 under Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).


1000 MW is to be achieved by 2013. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) set the rules for the distribution of projects and used reverse bidding to reduce tariff. Buying and selling of the solar power are to be handled by public sector undertaking NTPC under thr Ministry of Power. The first batch of 470 MW of solar thermal and 150 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) was auctioned in Nov 2010. The second batch was auctioned in Dec 2011. The remaining quota was filled by migrating solar PV and solar thermal projects that existed before the mission.


Like the big telecom players in the 2 G scam, a company called LANCO INFRATECH set up front companies that bid for solar power projects under JNNSM. When the Govt has adopted a policy of one project per proponent under the mission to encourage competition, Lanco managed to get nine(9) that is 235 MW that is almost a quarter of the total of 1000 MW.


The MNRE and NTPC could surely have checked this!


Who are the other beneficiaries?

Eshan Diya,

I completely agree.

Surely, there's no intention to make it succeed.

It's a huge source of easy money for the central party, local politicians, and bureaucrats along the way (-keeping them all in good humour will help politically).

Unless the SC takes a far more serious view of what's happening, things will only get worse. Once prima facie case is established (which itself is tough the way the SC interprets things), the onus of proof should be on the suspect. Existing laws are probably enough to interpret cases, provided the SC sees the writing on the wall.

I'm not just referring to the Central Govt; I'm referring to politicians as a whole class. I believe the system needs to be set right, and no one can do it better than the SC.

Ganesan. :~(

Mukesh Ambani’s enormous house and electricity consumption is approx 75 lacs per month. See his emission power.He must switch over to complete Solar/ Other modes of Non Conventional Energy at the earliest but not later than ………?
