The taxi and auto rickshaw community can relax at least for a month now. The indefinite strike by the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) dealers which was scheduled to start on Wednesday has now been postponed.
The motive of CNG dealers behind this strike is to raise their commission. At present, the dealers’ share is 87 paisa/kg. They are demanding for an increased share that is Rs.2.40/kg of CNG, which is around 3 times their previous commission. If the government fails to fulfill their demands, then approximately 2,500 BEST buses, 45,000 taxis and 1 lakh autos will be affected in the city. CNG dealers say that their demands are repeatedly ignored by the Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) and Oil Companies.
India’s most important battle tanks had been comparatively superior by world standards. However, long delays in fielding the new “Arjun” MBT, together with a successful Pakistani/Ukrainian program along with introduction of T-80UD “Al-Khalid” tanks, wrinkled India’s local advantage. In early October 2006, Indian Defense and leading Newspapers reported that the Indian Army proposed to produce nearly 1,000 T90S ‘Bhishma’ main battle tanks in India by 2020. These would be purchased from Russia as T-90S were recently introduced in the T-series of Russian tanks. It represents an increase in mobility, firepower and security. It is produced by Uralvagonzavod in Nizhnyi Tagil in Russia.
