Quick notes: Oil imports, Bride search...

  • Import dependence rising fast: India is now the 3rd-largest oil importer in the world. Energy imports bill may spike to $230 bn by 2023.

    “Diesel demand is being driven by a marked shift towards more manufacturing activity, away from the service sector, under the current government”.

    And the outlook for Rupee...?

  • Where are the engineers? Only a third of IIT students go on to pursue technology.

  • Coming south in search of a bride:  The strange case of how women from Kerala are wedding men from Haryana in what often turn out to be disastrous marriages.

  • Too Much Pesticide In Your Veggies: 80 per cent of Kerala's vegetables, which come from Tamil Nadu, are highly contaminated, with levels crossing the permissible limit by almost three to five times.

  • Name defaulting companies: The RBI should provide readily accessible summary information on its website about all corporate debt defaulters and the amounts involved.

  • Indian Railways may be running many premium trains on loss.  Eight of the sixteen Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto express trains are incurring operational losses per trip

  • Vaidyo Narayano Hari: : What a fall for the medical profession!
