ASSOCIATION OF Industries Madhya Pradesh (AIMP) has opposed the proposed hike in electricity tariffs announced by Madhya Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission recently. AIMP president Manohar Jhurani and secretary Vinay Kalani said that the government had applied minimum charges on demand based tariff and had made it mandatory for supply of more than 25 horsepower. They said that this would cause an increase of around 50 per cent in the electricity bills of small industries. AIMP has, therefore, asked the Electricity Board to review the electricity tariffs.
‘Indore needs a Pragati Maidan’
CONSUMER'S COUNCIL Madhya Pradesh has suggested that the district administration should develop a large ground for conducting cultural programmes, exhibitions and fairs. Council State president Hari Khandelwal mentioned in a press release that a ground must be developed on the theme of Pragati Maidan in Delhi or Mela Maidan in Gwalior. Khandelwal suggested that the grounds vacated by Bhandari Mill and Central Jail could be considered for this purpose.
These grounds are at a comfortable distance from railway station, bus stand and airport. The Bhandari Mill grounds would be very useful for traders, being near the railway station. Khandelwal added that Indore was developing at a fast pace and a ground for such programmes would add to its economic and all-round progress.
