fare structure the city’s development authority and the Reliance Infrastructure-led operator of Mumbai’s first Metro are now locked into another conflict The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has shot off a letter to the Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) the Metro operator saying the latter has constructed more area than required at the car depot and at Metro stations and asking for the excess area to be handed over to it According to the MMRDA letter written in the first week of October the development authority had given permission to build up to 45200 square metres of area in the car depot but the the MMOPL has constructed 30185158 square metres of additional area in the car depot At the current market price of about Rs 18000 per square feet the additional built-up is worth nearly Rs 585 crore U P S Madan metropolitan commissioner at the MMRDA said “They (the MMOPL) have constructed more area than what was required So we recently wrote a letter to them saying that the area constructed in excess should be handed over to the MMRDA As per the concession agreement the MMOPL was supposed to provide us the plans after completion of the project They sent the plans to us a few days ago and upon examining them we found out that more area has been constructed” Madan said The MMRDA has said that it will pay or adjust the reasonable construction cost for this excess area It has however asked the MMOPL to pay rent for using the area ever since the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro was opened for commercial operations on June 8 An MMOPL spokesperson said “MMOPL has executed all its works under the existing legal framework MMOPL has questioned the calculation done by MMRDA and asked for its clarification” The development authority’s letter does not point out the exact building or spot where the MMOPL has exceeded the construction limit However a senior MMRDA official said certain construction on the car depot is for administrative purposes while some construction is related to the functioning of the Metro corridor “We are saying that the MMOPL has constructed more than required for administrative purposes” he said On the 98-hectare plot where the car depot is located the MMOPL has constructed an operations control centre that is also the administrative set-up for its operations team a sub-station a receiving sub-station building where the MMOPL management has offices a building for training purposes made as a replica of the control room a waste water treatment plant and other facilities The car depot for the 114-km Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro is located at a stone’s throw from the DN Nagar Metro station in Andheri West and was originally supposed to be on a 13-hectare plot but had to be later scaled down due to land acquisition woes Along with the excess construction in the depot the development authority’s letter also points out excess construction at the Metro stations to the tune of 106698 square metres A MMRDA official said “The MMOPL has constructed small bits of excess area at almost all stations but largely the additional construction is at stations such as Western Express Highway and Andheri” The Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro the cost of which has ballooned from Rs 2356 crore to Rs 4321 crore is the country’s first Metro railway to be constructed on a public-private partnership model Reliance Infrastructure has a 69 per cent stake in MMOPL Veolia Transport has five per cent while the MMRDA holds 26 per cent in the consortium The project has been ridden with disputes between the public and the private entities The two parties have sparred over the logo of the Metro line the advertising revenue on Metro pillars the escalation in the project cost as well as the fare

taken not by me but the film itself You choose the film and then the film chooses everyone else; a film decides everything on its own When you watch a film like ‘Warning’you would realise that it

at least one in seven women aged 65 to 79 years has hypoactive sexual desire dysfunction (HSDD) Although HSDD was found to be more common in women with partners the study confirmed that unpartnered older women are still sexually active and may be distressed by low sexual desire For the study published in the journal Menopause the researchers took more than 1500 women and assessed their sexual function and sexual distress The group consisted of 526 per cent partnered women with a mean age of 71 years Within this group 88 per cent were found to have low sexual desire 155 per cent had

around research in the social sciences and the geosciences at the National Science Foundation (NSF) got pulled a little tighter today as an influential legislator unveiled a new and controversial budget metric as part of his blueprint for the agency “I want to make sure that they are spending about 70% of their money on the core sciences” says Representative John Culberson (R–TX) chair of the appropriations subcommittee that funds NSF and several other federal science agencies Culberson spoke to ScienceInsider after his panel marked up a 2016 spending bill that would give NSF only $50 million of the $379 million increase it has requested Culberson who this year succeeded the retiring Representative Frank Wolf (R–VA) as chair of the commerce justice and science (CJS) subcommittee has thrown his weight behind a campaign by some Republicans to earmark more of NSF’s budget for what they have labeled the “pure sciences” Their definition covers only four of NSF’s six research directorates—biology computing engineering and math and physical sciences It leaves geoscience and the social and behavioral sciences out in the cold The House spending bill marked up today would allow NSF to spread the additional $50 million in research across only those four favored directorates That’s a meager 07% over current levels compared with the 43% increase that the Obama administration has requested The other two directorates would be kept at 2015 levels as would the agency’s education activities which were slated for an 11% boost The bill also erases the $30 million hike that NSF has requested to prepare for its planned headquarters move in 2017 from Ballston to Alexandria in northern Virginia Right now NSF allocates 65% of its $593 billion research account to the four directorates that Culberson prefers His spending bill would bump that up to 66% Representative Lamar Smith (R–TX) chair of the science committee has made a similar distinction in the America COMPETES Act a bill to set NSF policies that is scheduled to be voted on next week by the full House of Representatives Under Smith’s legislation which as an authorization bill doesn’t actually appropriate money the favored quartet would receive 71% of the $619 billion that Smith has recommended for NSF’s research allocation Many scientists believe those disciplinary distinctions are merely a ploy by Republicans to hide their real goal—curbing federally funded research on climate change and political science They also see it as part of an effort by budget hawks to shrink overall government spending But Culberson and Smith say they are big supporters of NSF and are simply trying to make sure that everything it funds serves “the national interest” Some areas of research are just more valuable to the nation than others they insist “I’m asking them to prioritize” Culberson says “I want to give them as much freedom as possible but also to encourage them through the committee report to make the hard sciences a priority—the math and physics and pure science The fundamental mission of NSF should be those core sciences” That approach is wrong-headed and unwise many scientists say Society’s complex problems require participation from all areas of science they say as evidenced by the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of research Culberson says that the new spending bill “protects” such cross-disciplinary initiatives including NSF’s proposed $75 million Innovations at the Nexus of Food-Energy-Water Systems in which the geosciences directorate plays a major role But he declined to say how that would happen In contrast the bill fully funds a requested 35% increase to $144 million for the Understanding the Brain initiative a component of the administration’s cross-agency BRAIN program The social and behavior sciences play a significant role in that effort which is a consuming interest of the panel’s top Democrat Representative Chaka Fattah (D–PA) Today’s markup is the first step in a long process for setting NSF’s 2016 budget The full committee is slated to meet next Wednesday in what is expected to be a rubber-stamp endorsement of the overall $51 billion CJS bill The Senate has yet to begin work however And the two bodies must reconcile differing versions before anything is sent to the president Culberson hinted that the end product could be more generous “I’ve had to scratch and scramble for that $50 million” Culberson said blaming the spending limits imposed by a 2011 law intended to reduce the deficit that triggered deep across-the-board spending cuts in 2013 and led to a 16-day government shutdown later that year Making reference to the rumblings that the White House and congressional Republicans could strike a deal that would raise those caps Culberson added “If I get any additional money NSF is my top priority But that’s down the road”peaceful?a large number of industrialists in the downturn looked at
