Ltd.  Located in Chengdu’s western Qingyang district, Essence Chengdu will cover a 200-hectare site of five plots. Phase one will consist of mid-tier and high-end serviced apartments, town houses, high-end residential villas and the 150-key Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel which will open as the only ultra-luxury resort hotel in the Qingyang district of Chengdu, fronting the project’s 47-hectare eco-wetland park to provide an urban oasis with far greater privacy and outdoor space compared to other central city hotels.Dillip Rajakarier, Chief Executive Officer of Minor Hotels (owner of Anantara Hotels and Resorts) commented, “We are excited to announce the first Anantara in Chengdu, China in partnership with Chengdu Tai Hang Rui Hong Real Estate Co., Ltd. This addition to our portfolio demonstrates our commitment to growth in up and coming destinations, while foreseeing and responding to demand in a way that places us firmly as a strong market leader in Asia Pacific, and beyond.”Anantara Jinsha Chengdu Hotel is to feature 150 guest rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant and specialty restaurant, lobby lounge and bar/tea lounge, a gym and fitness facilities, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a spa, children’s club, additional recreational and leisure facilities, along with banqueting and meeting facilities.Located along the Yangxi Western Third Ring Road in Chengdu, Essence Chengdu boasts a prime location with multiple advantages for business and leisure guests.

Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is a 40-minute drive and Chengdu City Centre just 30-minutes.  Capitalising on Chengdu’s fast-paced developments, the new hotel is strategically positioned for increasing demand. At present, hotels in Chengdu are concentrated in the city centre, accompanied by a second hotel submarket in Tianfu New District. By contrast in the western Qingyang district there are currently no upscale and luxury hotels, nor any international branded hotels, meaning that the new Anantara will be the first luxury and upscale global hotel brands in this growing and well-connected part of town catering to high-end leisure and business guests.last_img read more

economically sustainable is food subsidy The cost could even be double of what the government estimates Food deprivation and malnutrition are completely unacceptable and everything has to be done to eliminate such an evil The prevalence of malnutrition in a country like India is in itself a cause for serious concern since malnourished children may jeopardise Indias favourable demographic dividend (as per independent estimatesclose to 60 per cent of Indias population is in the age group of 15-59 years) Howeverthe question is whether we can afford to have a food subsidy bill (FSB) and if such an endeavour is economically sustainable This paper tries to argue that the fiscal viability of the proposed FSB is not clear and the delivery outcomes could be highly compromised given the governance weaknesses and ineffective delivery mechanisms in place We understand that currently there are different versions of FSB For examplethe FSB on the National Advisory Council website is the initial version that had proposed to cover the entire segment of the population The draft version on the department of food and public distribution website then proposed coverage to 75 per cent of rural population and 50 per cent of urban population The Prime Ministers Economic Advisory Council (PMEAC) version proposes at least 75 per cent coverage of the countrys population with 90 per cent of rural coverage and 50 per cent of urban coverage We have worked out the estimates as per the draft version and our simulations show that the food subsidy estimates under this version are not significantly different from the PMEAC version The fiscal viability/ cost can be estimated in the following manner: The FSB for the rural area proposes to provide subsidised (at a fixed price not exceeding Rs 3/kg for riceRs 2/kg for wheat and Re 1/kg for coarse grains) foodgrains (7 kg per person per month) to 75 per cent of the rural populationwith at least 46 per cent to the priority rural households and the remainder to the general rural households It may be noted that the government of India is yet to specify the criteria for categorisation of population into priority and general households Let us call it A The FSB for the urban area proposes to provide subsidised (at a fixed price not exceeding 50 per cent of the 2010-11 procurement prices for ricewheat and coarse grains) foodgrains (3 kg per person per month) to 50 per cent of the urban populationwith at least 28 per cent to the priority urban households and the remainder to the general urban households Let us call it B We also estimated the storage cost for the additional food procurement The storage cost was estimated separately for (a) 5-7 per cent of the foodgrains wastage(b) creation of additional storage capacity for at least 13 million tonnes across 15 states as estimated by the ministry of foodconsumer affairs and public distribution at an average cost of Rs 5000 per metric tonne and (c) refurbishing existing storage capacity for the remaining foodgrains procured at an average cost of Rs 1000 per metric tonne Let us call it C As per the ministry of foodconsumer affairs and public distributionthere is a leakage of 36 per cent of foodgrains (17 per cent through bogus cards and 19 per cent through fair price shops) We estimated the cost of such leakage separately It is in fact an irony that such subsidised foodgrains meant for farmers are sold in the open market and possibly bought back by the poor people at a higher costthereby defeating the entire purpose Let us call it D There is also the additional cost of (a) providing free nutritious meals free of chargeduring pregnancy and six months thereafter to women and an additional maternity benefit of Rs 1000 per month(b) nutritional food to children (with particular emphasis on malnourished group) in the age-group of six months till six years)and (c) mid-day meal to lower and upper primary classes Let us call it E The cost of transporting foodgrains to different ration shops is also estimated separatelyas per the government estimates Let us call it F Hence the total cost can be estimated as the sum of A+B+C+D+E+F (refer to the table for details) Our estimate of FSB assumes a 15 per cent per year increase in MSP This is based on the observed increase of 15 per cent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) between FY06 and FY11 We further assume that the FSB is implemented in full measure in the first year itself On the basis of these two primary assumptions (other assumptions are listed in the footnote to the table) and summing A and Bthe minimum cost to the exchequer of implementing FSB amounts to Rs 80000 crore in the first year If wehoweverinclude components CDE and F the total outlay for FSB will amount to Rs 143000 crorein year one This amount is far higher (more than double) than the budgeted food subsidy estimates for current fiscal at Rs 60000 crore Moreoverthe incremental estimate of Rs 20000 crore which has been put out by the government on the basis of only some incremental costs (namely A & B component) is a gross underestimate In factour estimate is the minimum one and it still is close to Rs 457000 crore in first three years (close to Rs 500000 croreif we add administrative cost) This is not very much different from estimates in the first three years that pegs it even higher (Rs 600000 crore made by Ashok Gulati) This apartwe estimate that the total minimum foodgrains requirement for this endeavour will be 61 million tonnes Secondthere are still a lot of grey areas in the bill For examplethe draft bill does not specify for how long the subsidised prices will remain fixed (the NAC version assumes that it will remain unchanged for 10 years); what will be the inflation index; there is no definition of how the general and priority segments of population will be defined; how the destitute will be covered; the cost sharing between the Centre and states and so on One provisionwhich may be a bone of contentionis that state governments will be entitled to pay a food security allowance in the event of non-delivery of subsidised foodgrains to designated people Clearlysuch a provision is a double whammysince the Central government will have to procure additional foodgrains and bear subsidy cost because of the leakage and the state governments may also have to pay an allowance because the food will not be delivered to the beneficiary due to leakages Rajiv Kumar is secretary-generalFICCIand Soumya Kanti Ghosh is directoreconomics & researchFICCI The

rains fail fodder is unavailable and survival rates are low But things are changing in Bhajpur as in many other such places There are government employment works under MGNREGA — people get almost Rs 100 per day in spite of leakages which are few since the sarpanch is from the same tribe and caste as the rest So you really don’t have to go to either Udaipur or Ahmedabad and can be engaged in supplementary activity in the village itself In spite of what the sceptics and know-it-alls on TV may say in such villages people keep two pieces of paper — essential to access support systems — under

Sustainable Development under the UNbut its effectiveness remains questionable Alsoas a follow up to Rio 1992the UN organised the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburgbut in retrospect its achievements too remain questionableeven though it made a bold attempt to bring the private sector and civil society together As a resulta very large number of so-called type-2 partnerships involving business and civil society were signedbut most of them faded into insignificance almost as soon as the ink on those agreements dried up Rio 2012 is being held largely with modest expectationsand several questions do arise with respect to the themes that would be developed there At the beginning of this millenniumthe Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were agreed on by the UNs member countrieswith the clear intent of reducing poverty significantly by 2015 Rio 2012 may possibly come up with Sustainable Development Goalswhich would be articulated and possibly accepted by the same countries But it is not clear how these goals will mesh with the existing MDGswhich had precisetime-bound targets for specific actions at the global level The concept of a green economy is also likely to be discussed and debatedbut some countries are likely to hesitate in accepting this new pathway of growth and developmentlargely because of its underlying complexityand also because some nations may feel that its universal imposition may impinge on their sovereignty and inhibit their capacity to develop in a manner chosen by their own citizens One major area that is sadly missing from the themes to be discussed in Rio is the subject of climate change The impact of climate change is likely to exacerbate stresses that exist in the poorest regions of the worldand a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has revealed that the lengthfrequencyand/or intensity of warm spells or heat waves will increase over most land areas It is also likely that the frequency of heavy precipitation or the proportion of heavy falls to total rainfall will increase in the 21st century over many areas of the globe The losses from thesehoweverwill vary from region to region For instancefatality rates and economic losses expressed as a proportion of gross domestic product are higher in developing countries In the period from 1970 to 2008over 95 per cent of deaths from natural disasters occurred in developing countries Henceto lose sight of actions required to deal with the challenge of climate change would run counter to the objectives of Rio 2012 Actions that range from incremental steps to transformational changes are essential for reducing risk from climate extremes Correspondinglysocialeconomic and environmental sustainability can be enhanced by disaster risk management and adaptation approaches And the world needs to focus on options for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissionsbecause many impacts can be reduceddelayed or avoided by mitigation Delayed emission reductions significantly increase the risk of more severe climate change impacts It wouldthereforebe important for all the world leaders and delegates meeting in Rio to ensure that the scientific facts related to climate change are kept clearly in focus while defining the agenda for sustainable developmentgreen growth and sustainable energy for all Human society is

the region and Singapore in particular acknowledge that SRN was the “real but silent mover behind the scenes” as far as India-Singapore relationship was concerned Top News Singapore’s former president SR Nathan (SRN) who passed away on August 22 was among the principal architects of the city-state along with the legendary Lee Kuan Yew Among the less-known of his contributions (some of them bordering on the extraordinary) was building India-Singapore ties — and by extension the Indo-ASEAN relationship that was at the core of Prime Minister Narasimha Rao’s “look east policy” During the Cold War decades India’s relations with the South East Asian nations were to put it mildly frosty Delhi saw the states in the region as parts of the US-led anti-communist block “Coca-Cola republic” was one of the more sticky and in hindsight avoidable phrases of the Nehru years; the view from the other side about India was not too flattering either Indian diplomats who dealt with the region and Singapore in particular acknowledge that SRN was the “real but silent mover behind the scenes” as far as India-Singapore relationship was concerned Subsequently Singapore facilitated India’s gradual and at times grudging acceptance by the South East Asian nations Former secretary in the ministry of external affairs Amarnath Ram who had extensive dealings with the ASEAN recalls SRN as “ an internationalist an insightful thinker respected intellectual academic of high calibre and a humanist” SRN’s role as one of the “wise men” of the Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific (CSCAP) will long be remembered He helped give direction and content to the CSCAP particularly in its early years He actively supported India in the CSCAP at a time when the country was considered an outsider in the Asia Pacific region My association with SRN was brief but memorable We first met in 1996 when he visited Delhi to study the IDSA where I had just been appointed the deputy director SRN’s formidable reputation preceded him and I knew of him as Singapore’s former ambassador to the US and the former intelligence chief of his country Here was a man who had faced severe personal setbacks during his formative years saw the brutalities of World War II and participated in the birth of Singapore There were anecdotal references to the resolute manner with which he dealt with the communists and insurgents and about his volunteering to be a hostage to resolve a Palestine terrorist-related crisis in 1974 SRN was visiting think tanks across the world then to observe the best practices – as he put it — for he was entrusted with the founding of Singapore’s Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies SRN in his characteristically affable and unassuming manner asked me to give him what he described as a “tutorial” about how the IDSA was run He wanted to know the degree to which the research output of the institute actually contributed to and shaped government policy Clearly I was one among his many interlocutors and a relative greenhorn at that But the earnest manner in which SRN engaged with you made one feel very special One of the more tricky moments that he managed to defuse occurred in an India/ASEAN-ISIS conference in the mid-1990s in Delhi where heads of all security think tanks of the ASEAN were invited It was a major track 15 effort and the exchanges were candid Given the history of the animus between India and the South East Asian nations some discussions became very tense and heated At one point there was a near breakdown SRN stepped in assuaged the bruised sensitivities and brought the conference back on track Appointed president of Singapore in 1999 SRN was ever the gracious and generous host and one will cherish calling on him in Istana — the presidential palace A role model for his citizens SRN was a man of many parts and epitomised the diversity and dynamism of Singapore It was a privilege to have met him — albeit very briefly The writer
