India - Water Supply - Metrowater lets pipe leak for two weeks in Chennai

Metrowater lets pipe leak for two weeks

CHENNAI: The city is being scorched as summer approaches and drinking water is in short supply in several neighbourhoods, but the Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board ( CMWSSB) has not bothered to fix a pipeline on Anna Salai that has been leaking for more than two weeks.

The leak is causing water to stagnate in nearby streets, but Metrowater officials say they are awaiting approval from the highways department for the road work needed to repair the damaged pipeline opposite Kamaraj Hall.

Residents and shopkeepers say the pipe has been leaking every day from noon to 4pm, when water is supplied to the locality.

India - Budget 2012-2013 - Our concern on High Depreciation Rate demanded by Indian Industry

Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in its Pre budget memorandum for Union Budget 2012-13 has asked the government to announce initiatives that can accelerate the pace of private investments.
- In an important note they have recommended to raise depreciation rates for plant and machinery from 15 per cent to 30 per cent, at least for a period of two years to encourage more capital investment.
- Higher depreciation rate of 50 per cent in case of retrofitting technologies, which are more energy efficient and environment friendly in order to encourage companies to go green.

Our Concern

Worldwide surveys show that a nation's GDP is significantly affected by corrosion losses. This problem is not only the buzzword for people in Process Industries, but also perennial in public utilities such as metro water supply. We can see contamination of public water through corrosion problems. Our country is loosing crores and crores of money in replacing the old equipments due to corrosion problems. If higher depreciation rate is allowed, industries will be encouraged to replace the equipments quite frequently with no focus on material conservation efforts. Industries must be encouraged to follow corrosion control practices for saving this huge corrosion cost. Corrosion Prevention has been introduced in the US to encourage the company for getting credit FOR CORROSION PREVENTION AND MITIGATION MEASURES FOR Energy-related property.

We need to work in the direction of conserving our precious material resources.
