AGRICULTURE: The Quiet Transformation - April 2004

Ranjan Kedia used to export soya bean till five years ago. But when the going got tough, his Delhi-based Radha Krishna Impex Pvt Ltd gradually moved into litchis by setting up a processing plant in Muzaffarpur in Bihar, in the heart of India's litchi belt. Kedia's idea was to get into a business venture that was less crowded, and novel: litchis after all, are hardly exported from India.

IT Task Force Report for Power Sector - January 2002

While India has made impressive progress in the Power Sector since independence, it has not been sufficient. In terms of generation, while new capacity has been added, demand has far outstripped the supply leading to a widening gap. The primary reason of the widening gap lies in the distribution link in the value chain. The generation companies have not found it easy to recover their dues from their biggest buyers, mainly the State Electricity Boards (SEBs). SEBs suffer huge financial losses every year due to power theft and ineffective practices of billing and collection. Apparently, the losses have reached an alarming Rs. 26,000 crore.

Power Market in India - January 2001

The total market size of the power sector is estimated to be around $30 billion. The captive power market has also been growing to the tune of 2000 MW each year although recently there have been some down turns. Nevertheless, due to factors like rising tariffs for industrial consumers, stabilisation of fuel prices and increased competition in the captive generation market leading to lower capital costs will certainly provide an impetus to the captive generation market.
