Boost for ONGC but RIL will have to wait
Posted on 20th October 2014
The much-awaited decision on gas prices has finally come. However, production is unlikely to increase in the near term. The decision to raise the price from the current $4.2/mBtu to $5.61/mBtu will impact three of India's upstream companies differently. It is a positive for Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) and Oil India (OIL). It is sentimentally negative for Reliance Industries (RIL), as the revised pricing formula is not going to apply to the company till arbitration proceedings are on. Till this is resolved, the difference between the revised and earlier price of $4.2/mBtu will be credited to a gas pool account maintained by GAIL.

The market believes ONGC and OIL would be the biggest beneficiaries of diesel price deregulation and the gas price revision. With underrecoveries disappearing in the case of diesel, ONGC is expected to gain the most, believe oil & gas analysts. Diesel accounts for 55 per cent of total underrecoveries and about half of it is borne by public sector oil and gas producers. Within that, most of it is borne by ONGC.

Ebola outbreak: How ready is india?
Posted on 18th October 2014
First, there was a fever, along with headaches, diarrhoea, and muscle ache. Few people, or the doctors they visited, paid much attention: the symptoms suggested nothing that couldn’t be handled with paracetamol and immodium. But then came the tremors, mental confusion, seizures and coma. Every third person who developed the symptoms was headed towards a sudden death. Within weeks, the toll had reached 300.

As India faces the prospect of being hit by the global Ebola epidemic, last year’s outbreak of Japanese Encephalitis stands as a grim reminder of ground realities. The central government has announced a slew of measures to protect citizens from the feared disease — and yet, the country remains short on protective equipment, testing labs and professional training.
