Industry Updates on 2nd April, 2013
The Supreme Court has asked Sterlite Industries to pay a compensation of Rs 100 crore for polluting environment through its copper smelting plant in Tamil Nadu.
It has refused to direct closure of the plant in Tuticorin. It said that the compensation amount will have to be paid in five years.
Compensation must act as a deterrent and any amount less than Rs 100 crore would not have desired impact, the apex court said in its ruling.
terlite Industries stock surged as the Supreme Court refused to direct closure of the plant in Tuticorin.
After the court ruling, the stock climbed to a high of Rs 93.3 and was hovering around Rs 92.5 at 11.30 a.m, that is 3 per cent higher than the previous day's close.
Coal India misses FY13 output target by 12 MT; meets off-take goal
Coal India mined 452.2 million tonnes of coal in the complete financial year of 2012-13. This is nearly 12 million tonnes less than the output target set for the public sector miner.
On February 15, Business Line had reported that Coal India may fall short of nearly 12 million tonnes (mt) from its annual production target of 464.10 mt.
The miner achieved nearly 97 per cent of its target and reported 3.8 per cent growth in production when compared to the previous year.
However, to the relief of the customers, offtake mark up to 99 per cent of the target. Coal India delivered 465.2 mt of fuel to its customers against the target of 470 mt. This is 7.4 per cent higher than 2011-12.
The dip in production is because during the October-November period heavy rains and cyclone Neelam pulled down the output.
Besides, October-November are also festival months when most of the workers go on leave, official sources said.
Cabinet may consider cut in non-urea fertilisers’ subsidy
To reduce its subsidy burden, the Cabinet is likely to consider lowering the rates on various nutrients for decontrolled potassic and phosphatic fertilisers.
Once approved, the move will bring down the decontrolled fertiliser subsidy bill by about 15 per cent, which is less than the Budget estimate.
At present, urea comes under the category of controlled fertiliser and its retail prices are fixed by the Government.
