The sale of Dadri wetlands, home to several wildlife species, in Greater Noida to a private builder has come under the Environment Ministry scanner for flouting environmental laws.Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan told Rajya Sabha on Tuesday that her ministry had received a complaint regarding reclamation of wetland habitats in Bil Akbarpur by Ansal Private Limited and had sent a central team to verify the complaint.The team found that the sale of the wetland area by the state government violated the green clearance condition that no wetland should be infringed during construction and any wetland coming in the project area should be suitably rejuvenated and conserved.The clearance to the project was granted by the State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority of UP.Mail Today had first reported the spotting of blackbucks, blue bulls, chinkara and four-horned antelopes by wildlife enthusiasts.”This wetland harbours a good concentration of avian fauna in terms of biodiversity and density and is considered to be a viable avian habitat,” Natarajan said. She, however, clarified that there was no corroborative evidence of the presence of 200 endangered species of birds in the area.According to a survey conducted by the UP government in 2009, Bil Akbarpur has been identified as an important wetland, covering 4 hectares.Natarajan told the House that a show cause notice was issued to the builder under Section 5 of Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 to stop any construction, earth filling or land reclamation work in the vicinity of wetland.”The entire area has been concretised and there is nothing left. The builders and a local big college had bought the entire wetlands area. The government wants to sell each bit of that land so that no such reservoirs are left,” ecologist Anand Arya said.advertisementStrangely, the district forest department has long been denying the considerable presence of wildlife and has been claiming that there were only a few species in the area. It had even denied that there were wetlands in the area though its own RTI replies revealed that Bil Akbapur had 4 hectares of wetland.”The Greater Noida authority is spending crores to develop a night safari, that too artificially, but it can’t see the vast potential of an area, which exists naturally and on which it just has to spend minuscule amount to conserve it,” activist Vikrant Kumar Togad said on whose complaint the ministry acted.The fact-finding team sent by the ministry in January had recorded the presence of blackbucks and rare migratory birds in and around the habitat.”We are pursuing the government to initiate immediate steps to declare it as a sanctuary,” Togad added.”We have recorded more than 220 species of birds, including Sarus (state bird of UP), Blue Throat and waterfowls like Malard, Pintale, Shovelers, Garganey, Pochards, Wigeons and Waders. It is the richest bird habitat in Delhi’s vicinity but the government is hardly concerned,” Arya said.
Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra is on a short break after clinching a quota place for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics in Munich last month. When he wrote on Twitter bang in the middle of the Incheon Asian Games in 2014 that he was going to be a “fun shooter” there was a huge sense of disbelief.As a man of few words, it’s difficult to read Bindra. Yet, deep down the shooting world knew it would be tough for the 2008 Beijing air rifle gold medallist to stay away from the ranges. Since the time he saw shooting as a competitive sport for the first time at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Bindra has been hooked to the sport.”I have been in the sport for two decades and I won’t be doing it if I wasn’t enjoying it,” Bindra told Mail Today on Saturday.There are times when you speak to Bindra and get the impression he doesn’t want to talk too much about what he does on a day-to-day basis. He is a private man and there is only one success mantra he has – train hard with complete focus.Ask Bindra to compare the previous four Olympics he competed in – Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London – and he is prompt in replying “there is risk now.”The word “risk” may sound hard to comprehend but what he means is that the pressure is always there.”Athens and Beijing was different,” he says, meaning he could soak in the pressure more easily.advertisementBut within a minute, Bindra admits he takes these “risks” as he enjoys it on a daily basis. Being away from home and spending hours at the ranges can be boring and tiring. Prior to the Munich World Cup, he trained abroad for five weeks and despite suffering from back trouble, sealed India’s fourth quota place for the Rio Olympics.Asked about the big day in Rio next year, Bindra said being in the air rifle competition was like “jumping into fire for two hours.”For those not familiar with shooting as a sport, that’s the atmosphere in the indoor hall where over 50 marksmen stand in a freeze frame, squeezing the trigger gently and then seeing which innermost ring is hit on the target.In India, Leander Paes keeps talking about possibly playing in his seventh Olympics. Leander was a bronze medalist in 1996 at Atlanta while Bindra won an individual gold for India for the first time 12 years later.In Bindra’s case, he knows if he is going to be present in Rio, it’s not just for statistics.He believes he has a chance to win an Olympic medal once again, though coming back to “risk” he said “a Formula One driver” takes more risk in his life daily!
Former opener Virender Sehwag’s advice helped India wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha become the first wicketkeeper to score a double ton in the Irani Cup final for Rest of India (RoI), the Bengal player said on Tuesday.Saha’s exploits helped RoI script a win against Ranji Trophy champions Gujarat, led by his rival for the national wicketkeeper’s job Parthiv Patel. (Also read: I don’t think about pressure of competition with Parthiv Patel: Wriddhiman Saha to India Today)Saha scored an unbeaten 203 and his 316-run stand with Cheteshwar Pujara (116 not out) helped Rest of India win in Mumbai on Tuesday.Rest of India won by six wickets even after Gujarat took a first innings lead.”Most of the shots that I played in the innings were lofted. Actually, it was Sehwag who once told me that if I can hit a couple of boundaries early in my innings (with lofted strokes), it automatically eases the pressure and also can get the bowlers rattled,” Saha was quoted as saying by www.xtratime.in.”So, all I was thinking was to go after the bowlers with lofted strokes,” Saha said after hitting 203 off 272 balls laced with 26 fours and six sixes. (Also read: Wriddhiman Saha vs Parthiv Patel: India’s wicketkeeping dilemma)”He (Sehwag) suggested me that I should not curb my natural stroke play. If a ball is there to be hit, I should go after it,” Saha said.Wriddhiman had a tough time in the last few months as he had to miss a couple of Tests against England owing to injury.advertisementParthiv took his place in the India team and made a good case for himself scoring 195 runs in four innings at an average of 65.00. He notched up two half centuries in that period. (Also read: Wriddhiman Saha’s maiden double ton helps Rest of India lift Irani Cup)But Saha has worked hard with his fitness at National Cricket Academy (NCA), also receiving a message from India coach Anil Kumble last night wherein he was suggested to finish off the game for his team.”He (Kumble) sent me a text message last night reminding me that the job is not yet over. He urged me to finish the match. I am happy that I was able to do so,” Saha revealed.This was Saha’s first double hundred in any first class match.”I have not given it a thought about scoring a double century, until Pujara came and told me. The idea only came when I reached 180 runs. His (Pujara) presence at the other end made my job a lot easier. I am grateful to him for helping me reach the milestone.aIndia next play a single Test vs Bangladesh early next month followed by the much anticipated four-match Test series against Australia from February 23 to March 29.
Transfers Kovacic’s agent rubbishes Real Madrid exit rumours amid Man Utd, Juventus & Tottenham talk Chris Burton 17:53 6/1/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Transfers Manchester United Tottenham Hotspur Primera División Premier League Real Madrid The Croatia international midfielder is among those to have been linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu, but no switch is being planned Mateo Kovacic is not giving any thought to leaving Real Madrid this summer despite links to Manchester United, Tottenham and Juventus, claims his agent.The 24-year-old was a regular in Zinedine Zidane’s plans during the Frenchman’s final season at the Blancos helm, with 36 appearances made across all competitions.He does, however, face fierce competition for places at Santiago Bernabeu and was restricted to just 10 starts in La Liga during the 2017-18 campaign. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now It has been suggested that he could move on in search of more regular minutes elsewhere, with various landing spots mooted across Europe, but his representative has sought to quash the rumours.Nikky Vuksan told Sportske Novosti: “Kovacic made history with Real on Saturday [in the Champions League final] and two days later the media write about a Juventus offer!?“We haven’t thought about leaving Real or interest from other clubs.“But, the summer is long and who knows what can happen after the World Cup.“Also, it is a compliment to Mateo that every summer there are rumours about how the biggest clubs want him, even though he is not in Real’s XI.”Kovacic told 24sata recently that he has been turning a deaf ear to transfer talk for some time, with speculation in 2017 shrugged aside to remain in Spain.He said: “Offers last summer? If Zidane tells you to stay, that you will play and that he has faith in you – you simply stay! It is Zidane!“It was a privilege to hear such words from someone like him, who was one of best ever. And also, it is Real Madrid… how could I leave Real?! It is an honour to be part of this club.”Kovacic remains under contract in Madrid until 2021 so it would take a sizeable offer from any of his suitors to break that agreement.
Private sector entities are being urged to become more vigilant in monitoring, identifying, documenting and reporting suspected use of non-tariff measures (NTMs), which can affect trade. This call comes from Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator the Hon. A.J. Nicholson, who noted that in the past, complaints regarding this issue have mainly been anecdotal. “We therefore urge you to acknowledge when issues have been resolved,” the Minster said, as he addressed the opening of a stakeholders’ consultation on NTMs affecting Jamaica at the Knutsford Court Hotel, in Kingston, on March 6. NTMs are policy measures on export and import, other than ordinary customs tariffs, that can potentially have an effect on the international trade of goods. Senator Nicholson noted that the Government is fully aware of the significant number of domestic companies that have reported burdensome and often times problematic formalities, procedures and measures in accessing regional markets. “Cognizant of the persistent increase in non-tariff measures, as tariff rates have declined, the Government of Jamaica is pursuing an active strategy of collaborating with private sector stakeholders to identify and document evidence of impediments to Jamaica’s trade in order to address this issue in bilateral, regional and international negotiations,” he said. In addition, the Minister said the Government is also working to improve its policy framework, quality infrastructure and level of certification of companies and procedures. He pointed out that monitoring and documenting these barriers are becoming increasingly important given the massive increase in the use of NTMs, within the multi-lateral trading system, which are often times subsequent to the elimination of tariffs. “In particular, developing countries like Jamaica are forced to comply with a wide range of technical regulations, product standards and administrative procedures that frustrate our efforts at market access,” he said. “Additionally, Jamaican manufacturers themselves, both importers and exporters, have also continually expressed concerns about the high cost of doing business in Jamaica, which arises from excessively onerous bureaucratic processes and arbitrariness in the approach to trade facilitation locally,” he said. The Minister said this is why the Government of Jamaica, through the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade; Industry, Investment and Commerce, and Agriculture and Fisheries, “have continued to pay close attention to developments within the multilateral trading system that may constitute unfair and undue barriers to trade.” Stakeholders met to discuss the preliminary findings of a survey on NTMs affecting Jamaica undertaken by the International Trade Centre (ICT), in partnership with the Foreign Affairs Ministry, between August 2011 and February 2012. The survey identified the main obstacles the Jamaican business sector currently faces when complying with NTMs at product, sector and partner country levels. The Minister noted that the findings of the survey “are extremely important, providing empirical evidence on barriers to trade whether real, imagined or perceived.” According to the ITC’s Executive Director, Patricia Francis, NTMs cover a wide range of issues, from technical regulations and certification requirements to procedural hassles in obtaining export permits or clearing customs. She noted that while NTMS have a legitimate aim, for example, when they are applied to protect human, animal and plant lives, or to ensure the security of the national borders, these measures “can also act as protectionist tools in which case they do not only act as barriers to trade, but can have a negative impact on the competitiveness of a country’s economy.” “Over the last decade, NTMS have become a major impediment to international trade and market access. It is an area of particular concern to exporters and importers, especially in developing countries,” she said.
