    Four named in fake arms permit case chargesheet

    Four named in fake arms permit case chargesheet




    New Delhi, Wed Oct 24 2012,

    Four persons, including two employees of an ordnance depot, have been booked for issuing fake licences in the name of Army personnel in 2010. The Delhi Police has filed a chargesheet in the court of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Delhi.

    The chargesheet names Ranjit Singh and Jai Prakash, employees at the ordnance depot in Shakurbasti, Jasbir Singh and Mukesh Dahiya. They have been charged with criminal conspiracy, cheating, impersonation and forging documents for procuring bogus arms licences.

    In the chargesheet, police said Sultanpuri resident Jasbir Singh was arrested following a tip-off that he had a bogus arms licence purportedly issued by district magistrate offices at Doda and Ramban in Jammu and Kashmir.

    Singh was apprehended in June 2010 and a .32 calibre pistol made by the Indian Ordnance Factory recovered from his possession. He produced a licence, purportedly issued in 2008 from the office of Doda’s district magistrate, which said the licence holder was from the Indian Army.

    During questioning, he told police that he was not an Armyman and he got his licence from one Ranjit Singh for Rs 40,000.

    He also told police that two persons named Jai Prakash and Mukesh Dahiya had also procured licences through Ranjit.
    The administrative officer of the Ordnance Depot told police that Mukesh Dahiya and Jasbir Singh were not employees of the depot and no recommendation letter was issued to them.

    All four accused in the case were out on bail. They have also been charged under the Arms Act. The court will consider taking cognisance of the chargesheet on November 22.

    Jai Prakash was arrested soon after and he said he had paid Rs 18,000 to Ranjit Singh for the licence and that Singh had also prepared bogus licences in names of three other Army personnel.

    The chargesheet said reports from district magistrates of Doda and Ramban district in Jammu & Kashmir stated that licences of Mukesh and Jasbir were issued on the basis of incomplete application forms. Their forms were found to have forged recommendation letters by administrative officer of the ordnance depot in Shakurbasti.

    Missing children crisis continues to haunt India

    Many parents in India are coping with the sudden disappearance of their children, who could have fallen victim to human trafficking and other forms of violence and abuse.

    The number of missing children is on the rise in India, which has the largest child population in the world.

    Official figures indicate that New Delhi tops the list with some 12,000 children having gone missing in the capital over the past two years.

    “The majority of children who are being kidnapped from New Delhi are victims of trafficking,” a human rights activist said.

    India is said to be a source, destination and transit country for men, women and children who are being trafficked for the purpose of forced labor, domestic slavery and commercial sexual exploitation.

    In a bid to tackle the issue of missing children, police in Delhi State have set up a specialized unit to counter human trafficking, trace missing children, and look into cases of trafficking of girls for prostitution and children forced to work as bonded labor.

    The process, however, seems to be slow and challenging.

    The Indian government says it is taking all necessary measures to address this serious social problem, but experts believe there is a lack of adequate laws and a political will.

    Social activists also complain that parents of missing children often have to go to a great length to get their cases registered or investigated.

    Subrata Roy: India arrested tycoon's custody extended

    India's Supreme Court has ordered the continuing detention of businessman Subrata Roy and asked his firm to come up with a plan to repay its investors.

    The Sahara chief was arrested on Friday after he failed to appear before the judges in connection with a fraud case.

    Two Sahara firms were ordered to repay 240bn rupees ($3.9bn; £2.3bn) to investors that market regulators said they had raised illegally.

    On Tuesday, a protester threw ink on Mr Roy's face as he arrived at the court.

    "Subrata Roy is a thief. He has cheated and robbed us," his attacker shouted. The man, identified as a lawyer by Indian television channels, was taken away by the police.

    It was not immediately clear whether the businessman would now be sent to jail. Since his arrest, he has been lodged in government guest houses.

    The Supreme Court set the next hearing for 11 March.
    'Not interested'

    On Tuesday, Mr Roy apologised to the court saying his reasons for not appearing before the judges last Wednesday "were genuine".

    He said Sahara would sell its assets and pay back the investors and asked the judges to give him more time.

    But the court rejected his proposal saying "we are not interested in selling the properties, you have been telling us for the last two years, it is your headache, you should have done it".

    The judges also ordered police to take two other Sahara directors into custody and hold them until the next hearing.

    The case against Mr Roy stretches back to August 2012, when the court ordered the two Sahara firms implicated to refund money to 22 million small investors within 90 days and with 15% interest.

    In December 2012, the court gave the firms more time to repay.

    In February last year, market regulators froze the firms' bank accounts saying they had failed to refund the money.

    But Sahara disputes the amount it should pay back, saying its liability should be no more than the 51.2bn rupees it has already paid back.

    Mr Roy is a household name in India.

    His group, worth $11bn, has businesses ranging from finance, housing and manufacturing to aviation and the media.

    It also has interests overseas - it owns New York's landmark Plaza Hotel and London's iconic Grosvenor House.

    Sahara also sponsors the Indian hockey team and owns a stake in Formula One racing team, Force India.

    With more than 1.1 million workers, the group is India's biggest private sector employer.

    Narendra Modi's infrastructure splurge revives investment in India
    Annual growth in capital goods production, a proxy for capital investments, hit a 14-month high of 22 per cent in August, government data showed on Monday. That helped overall industrial output expand at its fastest pace in almost three years.

    While the figures, notoriously volatile and lumpy, were inflated by a favourable statistical base, the annual pace of expansion in the sector, measured on a three-month moving average, was 10.1 per cent in August versus 3.8 per cent a month ago.

    Night-vision startup Tonbo imaging bags multimillion dollar contracts


    Defence is a tough business to crack, unless you are one of the biggest defence contractors. Tonbo Imaging, a startup backed by Artiman Ventures of the U.S., has done just that. The Bengaluru-based maker of advanced night vision systems has won multimillion dollars contracts by building cutting edge technology products. Tonbo now has a pipeline of orders worth more than $50 million (Rs.331 crore) from Indian and international customers including DARPA, an advanced-technology branch of the U.S. Department of Defense. Its products are being used on observation platforms, reconnaissance drones, and artillery and naval weapon systems. “The fact that our technology was embraced by all these agencies has given us the thrust to leapfrog foreign competitors,” said Tonbo founder Arvind Lakshmikumar, whose startup won these contracts after competing alongside large defence firms such as Thales, Elbit and Tata Group. “Our investment in indigenous research and development and engineering is starting to pay off,” he said.

    According to Mr. Lakshmikumar, the firm has reached an ‘inflection point’ this year. He said the company was valued at $200 million (Rs.1,324 crore).

    It expects to cross revenue of about $26 million (Rs.172 crore) this year.

    “This makes us one of the largest privately held electro-optics companies in the world and the largest in India,” said Mr. Lakshmikumar, an alumnus of BITS Pilani and Carnegie Mellon University.

    Tonbo, which is the only indigenous manufacturer and exporter of thermal imaging-based devices, is currently on every electro-optics and night vision programme of significance in India, both in the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Defence.

    Rajiv Chib, Director for Aerospace and Defence Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers, said it has been an ‘uphill task for startups’ to make a mark in the Indian defence market. Most of them usually work with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and defence public sector units as sub vendors, he said.

    Tonbo had moved up the value chain by directly providing its products to the Ministry of Defence, Mr. Chib said, adding that it had been able to make inroads in the Indian defence market as it also serves international customers.

    “Tonbo’s model should be emulated by other Indian startups as well,” he said.

    Iron Man

    Tonbo's technology has gained traction from various defence ministries and forces in countries such as Singapore, France and Turkey. “I am quite fascinated with the folks at Tonbo. Arvind (Lakshmikumar) is like Tony Stark from the Iron Man. He and his team churn out pretty cool new technologies,” said General (retd.) Lucas Arnold, who has been a customer of Tonbo, while serving as a commander with NATO. General Arnold is now again a customer of Tonbo’s surveillance systems through the U.S.-based security firm Chevronstar, where he serves as Chairman. “High end night vision is a serious business and I have not seen technology like this emerge from places outside of a few classified labs in the U.S.,” said General Arnold.

    Mr. Lakshmikumar, 39, previously worked at firms like Intelligent Automation, Honeywell and Sarnoff in the U.S. There, he built various imaging innovations for large defence contractors such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin. He was also a part of government-funded programmes such as Future Combat Systems intended to prepare the U.S. Army for modern warfare.

    He then returned home and in 2008 started Tonbo, which means dragonfly in Japanese. It is now the only Indian company whose night vision systems will be featured for the Indian Navy’s 12.7 mm remote controlled gun platforms.

    The Navy will deploy the platform on ships to fight against pirates and terrorists. Mr. Lakshmikumar said Tonbo had also become the electro-optics supplier of choice to bidders on the Indian Army’s Futuristic Infantry Combat Vehicle programme. The almost $10 billion (Rs.66,210 crore) project is slated to be the largest indigenous defence programme.

    Backed by marquee investor Artiman Ventures, Tonbo has offices in Bengaluru, Palo Alto and Singapore. With the help of about 85 employees, it builds and deploys advanced imaging and sensor systems such as smart cameras that sense, understand and control complex environments. To put that in perspective, these systems allow soldiers to see during day and night, through fog and foliage, and do real-time interpretation of battlefield environment. General Arnold of Chevronstar said that since night vision technology was a highly restricted item, any company that builds them was under scrutiny from technology watchers and policy makers.

    “Their name does the rounds in these circles frequently.”

    Europe’s largest defence contractor BAE Systems, auto-parts maker Visteon Corp and Autoliv are also Tonbo’s customers.

    “Their product design is far from the traditional low-cost Indian products,” said Bien Thng, an executive at defence contractor and customer Pretech.

    LED lamp production up 30 times to 3 crore a month
    NEW DELHI: India's appetite for star-labelled energy efficient products has doubled with falling prices and increased participation of private companies even as the country affirms its commitment to low carbon footprint ahead of climate change talks in Paris later this month.

    Production of LED (light-emitting diode) lamps that consume about 80 per cent less energy than incandescent bulbs has increased to 3 crore per month against 10 lakh a year ago, thanks to the government's LED lamps distribution programme. Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), the coordinator for energy efficient programmes, is launching a similar programme for star-rated agricultural pumps and ceiling fans.

    LED lamp production up 30 times to 3 crore a monthThe company is also facilitating state governments in floating contracts for retrofitting LED street lights and maintaining them, creating market for Energy Service Companies (ESCOs)—a concept prevalent in West but has remained a non-starter in India.

    The government has revised its investment estimate for energy efficient electrical equipment to around Rs 150,000 crore from Rs 74,000 crore about six years ago following the success of the LED lamps distribution programme, EESL Managing Director Saurabh Kumar told ET. The fresh estimate reveals an investment potential of Rs 50,000 crore in solar pumps, Rs 40,000 crore in electrical equipment like fans and ACs, Rs 35,000 crore in energy-efficient lighting and street lighting, and Rs 30,000 crore in industrial usage, he said.

    EESL too has scaled up its investment target 140 times to Rs 70,000 crore in the next five years from the earlier Rs 500 crore fixed about two years ago. The company has so far invested about Rs 5,000 crore. Its equity has increased to Rs 500 crore from Rs 90 crore and it proposes to raise loans from German development bank KfW, Asian Development Bank and AfD (France Development Agency).

    EESL, a joint venture of state-run NTPCBSE 0.38 %, Power Finance Corporation, Rural Electrification Corporation and Power Grid Corporation, cashes in on the profits that accrue to the distribution companies that purchase less electricity from generation firms due to energy savings. EESL procures LED lamps in bulk through competitive bidding and distributes them to the consumers through power distribution companies.

    While sectoral majors like Philips, Havells, Surya Roshni and Compact have ramped up LED production, Eveready Industries and Syska LED have ventured into the business. LED lamps production is likely to grow as the distribution programme reaches a pan-India level, resulting in prices as low as Rs 73 per unit against Rs 310 a few months back for a 7-watt LED lamp. As EESL reserves 20 per cent of the LED tenders for small firms, many companies like MIC Electronics and EcoLight LED Systems have increased capacities.

    The government hopes to save 85 lakh Kwh electricity consumption a day or 15,000 tonne of CO2 by replacing 77 crore conventional bulbs and CFLs with LEDs and 3.5 crore street lights over 3 years. The energy conservation programme gels well with the country's stand on lower greenhouse emissions ahead of the Paris convention.

    "The government emphasis on energy efficiency, even as energy prices are at historic lows, is commendable," said Kameswara Rao, energy leader at Pricewaterhouse-Coopers. "Also, current policies cover a wide range such as lighting, old power plants, small industries, standards & labelling, building codes, demand-side management. Together, these initiatives represent a major and credible response to reducing India's energy intensity."

    Kumar said the programme for replacing conventional ceiling fans with five-star rated fans will be started with southern states. India is the largest consumer of ceiling fans in the world but the demand for energy-efficient fans or super efficient fans is very low due to price variations and lack of awareness.

    ET view: Smart on all fronts to improve energy efficiency

    Improving energy efficiency is important to India's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and for optimal use of resources. The IEA calculates that India's primary energy demand could be reduced by 200 Mtoe (million tonnes of oil equivalent) on account of gains in energy efficiency. The energy-efficient electrical market also presents an opportunity for the government's Make in India initiative, especially as the global push to maximise energy efficiency gets an impetus. For India, a concerted push on efficiency is climate-smart, energy-smart as well as economically smart.

    Make In India 'Defence Deal': Godrej ahead of others Godrej & Boyce, the holding company of the Godrej Group, started its journey by manufacturing high quality locks in 1897. Along the way, some 30-odd years ago, this locksmith decided to help India unlock the mysteries of space.
    Over the last 118 years Godrej & Boyce has evolved from making locks to giving India a lock on the planet mars. Its expertise in precision engineering and precision machining has helped the company grow in tandem with the Indian space research programme. Today, it has secured itself an immovable place in sectors like Indian defence, Indian space exploration, and Indian aerospace and is planning a Rs 150 crore capex plan to further cement its leadership position. For CNBC-TV18’s special series "Make In India: A New Deal For Defence" Sajeet Manghat travelled to Pirojshahnagar on the outskirts of Mumbai to get a first hand look at the capabilities of this shy company. Godrej & Boyce, the holding company of the Godrej Group, started its journey by manufacturing high quality locks in 1897. Along the way, some 30-odd years ago, this locksmith decided to help India unlock the mysteries of space. The company has 5 industrial licenses to manufacture defence products. but back in 1985, the company realized that cementing and sustaining a strong position in defence and space would mean heavy investment, for building technologies, for enhancing capabilities, for putting in place cutting-edge infrastructure and more importantly, getting specialized manpower on board. Kaustubh Shukla, COO, Industrial Products Division, Godrej & Boyce said:: “I will put a ball park figure, for defence I could say about Rs 300 crores of investment in plant machinery, development of technology and in building capabilities and space I would add another Rs 100 cr or so.” ISRO gave the company a further nudge when, after asking the company to participate in the Indian Space Programme, it pumped in a cool Rs 100 crore into Godrej's facilities. This money went into bringing in new technologies and equipment - equipment that Godrej is using to this day to develop engines for ISRO. According to SM Vaidya, EVP & Business Head, Godrej Aerospace, they identified the hidden strength within the Godrej divisions and they gave us opportunities to work on those high end alloys and very precision tolerances and moved from detailed parts to assemblies from Vikas engine to Cryogenic engines. He said: “There are three different variants of Cryogenic engines which are made by us. One of the largest boosters for 200 tones is being developed by us now.” One of the first feathers in the company's cap came in 1994. That’s when it delivered its first liquid propulsion engine to ISRO for ground testing. Four years later, with the successful launch of the first PSLV, Godrej had officially arrived. By then ISRO was ready to take space research to the next level, and Godrej was embroiled in a race to design and manufacture a cryogenic engine. “In 1996 we signed the first contract for the cryogenic engine and that engine was delivered in 2002. For the ground tests and once again the tech transfer was not complete and we had lot of learning's and we developed it along with ISRO new variants with modifications in that so that and just recently we had the second successful flight also,” said Vaidya. The next big boost came from former president APJ Abdul Kalam but that was much before he became president. Vaidya said, when Dr Kalam moved from ISRO to DRDO and coined the IGMT 5 missile programme, we started contributing to the riveted structures and then into the tank ages and then into the engines. For the Prithvi Missile which uses the liquid engine. We have made the quite a large contribution. More than 60 liquid engines we have made from our facilities here. Over the years, Godrej has invested substantially in developing the Brahmos facility, nearly Rs 100 crore have gone into setting up the serial production of the missile. Today, Godrej supplies 6 assemblies for the Brahmos Missile. Discussions with Brahmos corporation for use of a liquid engine are also on-going, and Godrej has been shortlisted to cater to this variant as well. Of course, all this will mean further expansion for Godrej & Boyce.[/QUOTE]

    Engine capability depends on thrust and specific impulse.
    Sorting them via specific impulse

    Solid engine < Liquid < Semi cryogenic engine < Cryogenic engine

    Cost : Semi cryogenic engine < solid engine < liquid(vikas engine)

    You need more thrust & impulse to place high mass object in higher orbit.

    GSLV MK III relies on combination of 2 Solid boosters, 2 liquid vikas engines & 1 cryogenic engine.

    The future ULV launch vehicle will have many cryogenic engine in place of vikas engine. India Semi cyogeninc 1st prototype to be tested next year.Godrej is making 6 of them currently with design IP from ISRO.

    Both stages of Space X Falcon 9 are made of semi cryogengic engine which consume LOX/RP-1 (liquid oxygen and refine petroleum-Kerosene). The image in right hand side is SCE engine Merlin Vacuum (1D)
    RP-1 is cheaper, stable at room temperature, far less of an explosion hazard and far denser.

    Space X with Merlin 1-D is optimal SLV for launching satellites & humane orbital program which are with in range of 4.5 Tons for GTO and 10 Tons for LEO
