India will continue to face an exponential growth of electricity demand over the next quarter century and beyond due to the high economic growth targets. However, there is a massive mismatch between aggregate national electricity requirements, natural resources and capital availability. To meet this acute capital crunch, India needs huge doses of private investment, both domestic and foreign.
May 17, Will India buy more? The Indian defense contractor Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. India originally received standard SuMKs, while its government and industry worked with the Russians to develop the more advanced SuMKIcomplete with innovations like thrust-vectoring engines and canard fore planes.
The SuMKI ended up using electronic systems from a variety of countries: So far, India has ordered SUs in 4 stages: Another 40 SuMKIs, ordered direct in A preliminary order was reportedly signed inbut the final deal waited until December India may eventually upgrade its earlier models to this standard.
The overall goal is squadrons by There have also been reports of basings in other locations, though the number of active squadrons suggest that these are yet to come: Companies signing the agreement include Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.
A second agreement will see the provision of lifecycle support and maintenance of major Russian equipment and platforms for Mi helicopters, MiGK aircraft, INS Vikramaditya and T tanks. The power plant is currently being installed on Russian Su and PAK FA fighters, and is being called significantly superior to its predecessors.
The agreement, scheduled to be signed in March, will also allow some of the components to be manufactured in India. It is also expected that once the hub is functioning, operational readiness of the IAF SuMKI fleet will rise above the current rate of 63 percent.
Vietnamese Su pilots will be trained by India. Indian sailors have already trained their Vietnamese counterparts in operating the Kilo-class submarines.
The agreement allows for the Indian Air Force IAF to receive spare parts of Su aircraft within 30 days instead of the previous 12 months. The five year agreement will cut away red tape such as license, customs clearance and bank guarantees which in the past had to be completed for each part ordered.
This will allow for the IAF to keep its Su fleet at optimum levels of operational capacity. For two countries who love bureaucracy, 12 months to 30 days is quite an achievement. Meanwhile, the current arrangement continues, with the IAF vastly underspending on spares INR million per year, vs. Most of the spares must still come from Russia, and surge capability is very poor.
It would be back in air only after a thorough check…. The pilots apparently did quite a job, as Shiv Aroor incorrectly reports: The IAF is still piecing together the full sequence of events, though it appears clear at this time that Munje and his junior had mere seconds to take a decision after lift-off.
The IAF subsequently issues a release that says: It also has a problem with engine failures in flight. Fortunately, as a 2-engine fighter, it can generally land on 1 engine, and the accident rate is low. Worse, every time this happens, the engine has to be taken out, tested, fixed, and put back.
That takes a minimum of days, which cuts readiness rates. The number of single-engine landings by planes in two years is high and not healthy.
It lowers the operational ability of the fleet, besides raising questions about war readiness, said sources.
The firing marks a significant milestone for India.
Deliveries currently sit at 15 per year, but completion of the program will be late. Final delivery is now scheduled forinstead of The key is the contract, which mandates that all raw materials must be sourced from Russia.
Another 7, bolts, screws, rivets, etc. Those plates, castings, and forgings are a source of considerable waste: The titanium shaved off is wasted. Similarly a wing bracket that weighs just 3. The challenge is that they can only upgrade bases at any given time.
The eventual goal is 30 IAF and navy bases set up byincluding 8 along the Chinese border. By the end ofthe goal is to expand MAFI to 67 air bases, including 2 owned by the ministry of home affairs.What should India adopt modernization or westernization.
India is changing rapidly. From last years it has accepted many different trends and systems of the western countries. Often people might hear each other saying India is under the westernization impact or you are getting modern.
Korea under Japanese rule began with the end of the short-lived Korean Empire in and ended at the conclusion of World War II in Japanese rule over Korea was the outcome of a process that began with the Japan–Korea Treaty of , whereby a complex coalition of the Meiji government, military, and business officials sought to integrate Korea both politically and economically into.
Thought Of The Day. ADVERTISEMENT. Identification. India constitutes the largest part of the subcontinental land mass of South Asia, an area it shares with six other countries, including Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
In India, police and law and order come under the purview of state governments. Accordingly, each state has its own police force for maintaining law and order and investigating crimes.
1: Urgent need of supplying Power to large tracts of the country that are still “IN THE DARK” If there is one industry where the current phase of globalization, which started about three decades ago, can be decisively beneficial to India, it is the hydroelectric power sector.
