first_imgNew Delhi: After a rap from market regulator Sebi, Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd (HPCL) has re-filed shareholding pattern of the company for last six quarters, listing its majority owner Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) as a ‘promoter’. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) had asked HPCL to re-file shareholding pattern to stock exchanges by August 13, 2019 for all quarters since Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) acquired government’s entire stake in the refiner in January 2018.

In the revised shareholding, under the ‘statement showing the shareholding pattern of the Promoter and Promoter Group’, it listed ONGC as a promoter with 77.88 crore shares or 51.11 per cent stake just below President of India with ‘zero’ shares. ONGC in January last year bought the government’s entire 51.11 per cent stake in HPCL for Rs 36,915 crore but continued to be mentioned under “public shareholder” in the filings by the oil marketing company.

All these have now been rectified to mention ONGC as a promoter below President of India. Sebi had in an August 6 letter asked HPCL to re-file “the shareholding pattern to the stock exchanges revising the status of ONGC as ‘promoter’.” “Further, as informed by HPCL vide its email dated June 27, 2019, Government of India has also advised HPCL that ‘President of India’ will continue to be the promoter of HPCL and ONGC to be added as a Promoter below ‘President of India. “However, HPCL has not abided by the aforesaid direction to revise the status of ONGC as ‘promoter’ till now,” the regulator had said. The regulator said its response to the informal guidance request was “clear and self-explanatory”. “Hence any further request for clarification on the issue does not arise,” it said. “Accordingly, you are once again advised to re-file the shareholding pattern to the stock exchanges for all quarters since the acquisition of shares by ONGC, while revising the status of ONGC as a ‘promoter’ by August 13, 2019, failing which appropriate action will be initiated as per SEBI Act.” After the stern message, HPCL fell in line and replied back saying it “intends to rectify the shareholding pattern and classification of promoters by the stipulated date as per the direction from SEBI.” It subsequently filed a revised shareholding pattern. While HPCL dragged its feet in tagging ONGC as its promoter for unspecified reasons, IT company Mindtree recognised Larsen and Toubro as its promoter within a day after the engineering giant acquired a majority stake. Last month, an HPCL spokesperson had stated that the company needed “clarifications /details” from “multiple agencies/ authorities to ensure compliance to various stipulations applicable to listed companies including Companies Act, SEBI Regulations, etc” before doing so. “As soon as all the clarifications/details are received from concerned agencies /authorities, necessary amendments as required will be made in the regulatory filings after following due process. Till such time, the status quo is being maintained in the regulatory filings,” the spokesperson had said. According to the Sebi’s rules, the entity that owns the controlling stake should be listed as a promoter even if it was not the original promoter of the company. When Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) had bought the government’s stake in fuel retailer IBP Co Ltd, it was listed as the latter’s promoter in every instance after the deal. The same was the case when IOC acquired a majority stake in Chennai Petroleum Corp Ltd (CPCL). Since acquiring a majority stake in HPCL, ONGC has only been able to appoint one director to that firm’s board. HPCL head Mukesh K Surana continues with the title of Chairman and Managing Director despite corporate governance structure mandate only one chairman in a group and subsidiaries being headed by managing directors or CEOs.last_img read more

first_imgLike all the major actors of Bollywood who are pulling up their socks to try something new, Sharman Joshi also stepped in the web space with ‘Baarish’ – an upcoming show on ‘Alt Balaji’. Read to know what he has to say about the potential scope of web, his expectations from the show, bonding with co-actor Asha and much more. You have recently made your debut in web space, was there the same pressure you felt when you signed your first film? To be honest, the pressure was not as much as it is while you work in a feature film, things were a bit different here. I didn’t have butterflies in my stomach right now, as I had them at the time of my first film. Nevertheless, I was very excited about my debut in the web space and I am really looking forward to seeing how this journey is going to be. Also Read – The Puja carnival It was your first web show. Are you here to stay? As an actor, with what I have observed, I think the web is going to give many exciting opportunities in terms of creativity – there is some great material being attempted here, and also I can foresee effectively great opportunities to explore as an actor. With the story point of view even, I believe that there are certain stories which need to be told over a certain number of hours, and cannot be properly executed in a 2-3 hour feature film. Therefore, I am really looking forward to staying and explore the more ‘free’ side of cinema here. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this Navratra A lot of love stories are made every now and then. How is this show different? How is your character in this series different from our typical romantic Bollywood heroes who fall in love and work towards a happy ending? It is like asking me how my love story is different from yours. There might be certain differences or there might not be, but what I believe is that each pair makes a love story unique. Also, the way a director tells this story with the characterisation and the portrayal of those characters is different. Personally, I believe that because we were so restraint before the advent of OTT platforms, we all have now let ourselves free and therefore, more out of the box stuff is happening here. So, I think amidst all those serious stories, this kind of show becomes a clutter breaker. Your co-actor Asha Negi has also made her debut on the web. How was it working with someone who is as new to the web space as you are? For actors, performance is not affected by the platform. That is what I have always felt – whether it is theatre, films, or web show or whether I end up exploring television tomorrow, it’s going to be the same. And as far as Asha is concerned, she is a very fine actor and I have had an amazing time working with her. I feel she is a wonderful person, very positive and always happy which makes her a great person to work with. What were your initial expectations with this project? My expectations with every project I do is always high. And that is the way I think it should be. Though highs and lows are a part of every actor’s life – sometimes a project does exceptionally well and sometimes it doesn’t. All you have to do it never lose hope, stand back on your feet and do your best in the other possible projects. I hoped the world for this project and I am glad it is doing well.last_img read more

14 July 2008After an outbreak of Rift Valley Fever (RVF) in Madagascar that has already caused 20 human deaths as well as affecting livestock, two United Nations agencies have stepped in to help treat and control the disease. Since January RVF has been reported in both animals and humans in more than 20 out of the 119 districts of Madagascar, primarily in the north, south and central highlands. By the end of June Madagascar’s Ministry of Health had reported a total of 520 human-suspected cases related to RVF, including 20 deaths. Laboratory tests have confirmed 84 human cases so far. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the UN World Health Organization (WHO) have helped Malagasy authorities develop an Emergency Response Plan, which includes providing disease management for affected livestock herds and human populations at risk, reinforcing livestock disease surveillance and improving reporting systems and laboratory diagnostics. Transmitted by mosquitoes, RVF is a dangerous disease that affects both livestock – including sheep, goats, cattle and camels – and humans, but is usually well-established in animal populations by the time the first human cases are observed. Humans become infected through mosquito bites or direct contact with infected material and liquids such as animal blood during slaughtering, while the uncooked milk of infected animals can also pose a risk. No cases of human-to-human transmission have ever been reported. While some infected people experience no detectable symptoms, others develop flu-like fever, muscle pain, headaches, joint pain, vomiting, loss of appetite and sensitivity to light. In more severe cases patients can also experience lesions in their eyes, neurological problems, liver impairment and haemorrhagic fever symptoms including widespread bleeding. FAO and WHO have received a total of $376,000 from the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to support the emergency plan, but the two agencies are appealing to international donors to help extend the programme to areas not yet covered, aiming to cover all populations at risk. read more

Mohamed ElBaradei told a meeting in Paris of the 50th anniversary of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that a decade ago, nuclear power’s popularity was in question.“When we talked about transferring nuclear technology to developing countries, we generally meant applications in medicine and industry, not nuclear power,” the IAEA Director General said.But the tides have turned and “change is in the air,” he added, with many of the agency’s Member States – mostly from the developing world – expressing interest in nuclear power.One dozen countries, including Turkey and Viet Nam, are actively preparing nuclear programmes, while China is constructing six power reactors and Russia intends to build dozens of both large and small reactors by 2020.Greater efforts are essential to ensure that nuclear power’s future is “safe, proliferation-resistant and cost-effective,” Mr. ElBaradei said.“Every country has the right to develop nuclear power, but also a responsibility to do it properly,” he noted.But he cautioned that it is crucial to have realistic expectations of how quickly countries can have nuclear reactors online. “It can take a minimum of 10 years just to put the basic infrastructure in place. This is not an area where you can cut corners.” 16 October 2008More than 50 countries have alerted the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that they are considering utilizing nuclear power, the head of the United Nations body said today. read more

Mr. Ban is “troubled” by the circumstances leading to the resignation of Cheick Modibo Diarra, his spokesperson said in a statement, adding that “the Secretary-General calls again for a cessation of military interference in politics and urges the Malian leadership to resolve any issues through peaceful means.”Soldiers reportedly arrested Mr. Diarra at his residence in the capital, Bamako, last night – the latest development in the ongoing crisis in the West African nation, which has been dealing with a range of security, political and humanitarian problems since the start of the year. Fighting between Government forces and Tuareg rebels broke out in the country’s north in January, following which radical Islamists have seized control of the area. The renewed clashes in the north, as well as the proliferation of armed groups in the region, drought and political instability in the wake of a military coup d’état in March have uprooted hundreds of thousands of civilians this year.“These latest developments underscore the importance of sustained national and international efforts to address the political crisis in Bamako,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson stated. The Security Council condemned the arrest in a statement read out to the press by Ambassador Mohammed Loulichki of Morocco, which holds the Council’s presidency for December. It also expressed its readiness “to consider appropriate measures, including targeted sanctions, against those who prevent the restoration of the constitutional order and take actions that undermine stability in Mali.” Both the Council and the Secretary-General called on the Interim President of Mali, Dioncounda Traoré, to move swiftly to form a broad-based inclusive government. In addition, the Council urged the transitional authorities of Mali to expedite the establishment of a transitional roadmap, through broad-based and inclusive political dialogue, to fully restore constitutional order and national unity, including through the holding of peaceful, inclusive and credible elections as soon as possible.The Council also stressed its commitment to authorizing as soon as possible the deployment of the African-led so-called International Support Mission in Mali. UN military and police planners have worked closely with the Economic Community of West African States and the African Union, in consultation with Malian authorities, in developing a framework for the proposed force. read more

“Japan has established a good foundation to improve its strategy and to allocate the necessary resources to conduct the safe decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi,” said team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo, Director of Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Waste Technology at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). “The situation, however, remains very complex, and there will continue to be very challenging issues that must be resolved to ensure the plant’s long-term stability,” he added in a news release.In March 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake created a tsunami that in addition to killing 20,000 people, slammed into the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, disabling cooling systems and leading to fuel meltdowns in three of the six units. The incident was reported to be the worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.The 19-member team from the IAEA that visited the site from 25 November to 4 December praised Japan for adopting “a more proactive approach” towards addressing the many complex challenges posed by the nuclear accident, adding that relevant authorities have evolved their strategies over time to develop sustainable solutions.At the request of the Japanese Government, the team examined a wide variety of issues related to decommissioning the power plant, including contaminated water management issues. It also considered Japan’s efforts to monitor radiation conditions in the marine environment, including seawater, sediments, and animal and plant life.In its preliminary report, delivered to Japanese authorities today, the team acknowledged a number of achievements in preparing Fukushima for decommissioning, such as a comprehensive set of measures to manage “extensive” contaminated water issues and a monitoring programme set up to track radiation levels in the environment around the accident site, including the marine environment.At the same time, the IAEA team provided advice in areas where current practices could be improved. For example, the Government and TEPCO are encouraged to continue their efforts to address water issues at the site, including preventing groundwater from entering the reactor buildings and monitoring the effectiveness of all such measures.“Regarding the growing amounts of contaminated water at the site, TEPCO should bolster its efforts to treat this water and then examine all options for its further management, including the possibility of resuming controlled discharges in compliance with authorized limits,” said the team.To pursue this option, the team continued, TEPCO should prepare appropriate safety and environmental impact assessments and submit them for regulatory review. In addition, the team suggested that Japan continue its transition to long-term stability of the site and to develop waste management solutions. Waste facilities should be planned to support the decommissioning process for its lifetime, and a laboratory should be established for waste characterization, it said. The visit that concluded today came in the context of the IAEA’s 2011 Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, which defines a programme of work to strengthen the global nuclear safety framework, and encourages the use of peer review missions to take full advantage of global experience.While in Japan, the team held extensive discussions with officials from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as well as from TEPCO and the Nuclear Regulation Authority. It also visited the nuclear accident site to gain first-hand information about conditions at the power plant and progress toward decommissioning the facility.“We are still at the beginning of a lengthy process,” Mr. Lentijo said, “but Japan is gaining a better understanding of the situation, an understanding that is critical to address the challenges.”The IAEA team plans to deliver its final report to Japan by the end of January. read more

first_imgCosta Rica’s Drug Control Police (PCD) on Wednesday morning raided 11 locations across the Central Valley and arrested eight suspects believed to belong to an international drug trafficking and money laundering ring, according to Public Security Vice Minister María Fullmen.The raids and arrests were the culmination of a PCD investigation into a group that allegedly trafficked drugs and cash across the Peñas Blancas border crossing with Nicaragua and on to Guatemala and Honduras. Both countries are major transit points for cocaine destined for the United States, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.Fullmen said the eight suspects include the group’s leaders, a man identified as Fonseca Vega, a resident of San Isidro, Heredia; and his son-in-law, Herrera Castro, who lives in Coronado. Seven other arrests were tied to the criminal organization at the Peñas Blancas border crossing and another in Nicaragua, according to a ministry statement.Raids took place in Alajuela, Cartago, Heredia and San José. A farm in Turrialba registered in Fonseca Vega’s name also was raided Wednesday as part of a money laundering investigation.Since the investigation began in September 2013, police have seized $442,281, 877 kilograms of cocaine, six trucks and one car from the alleged drug-running gang.Costa Rica’s Public Security Ministry claimed to have seized over 21 metric tons of cocaine during 2014.

first_imgCosta Rica’s Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) filed a proposal Wednesday to lower taxi fares. It will be submitted for discussion at a public hearing in coming weeks.ARESEP explained the new proposed fares were calculated following a recent review of fuel prices, salaries, maintenance expenses and other costs, but also respond to a fare revision request from taxi groups including the Costa Rican Federation of Taxi Cooperatives.The agency is proposing that the first kilometer of a taxi ride drop from ₡645 to ₡615 ($1.19 to $1.13). For additional kilometers the fare would drop from ₡625 to ₡600 ($1.15 to $1.11) and for taxis providing transportation in rural areas, additional kilometers would drop from ₡785 to ₡615 ($1.45 to $1.14).Taxi drivers are struggling to cope with new competition from ride-hailing service Uber, which entered the market at the end of August. Uber rates are ₡500 ($0.93) for the first kilometer and ₡300 ($0.56) for each kilometer beyond that.President Luis Guillermo Solís’ administration has said transport services requested through Uber are not legal. Last week a legal review by the Public Transportation Council (CTP) ruled that Uber service is illegal as it does not meet the country’s standards for public transportation.CTP officials have yet to decide whether to take any legal action against the company, but Presidency Minister Sergio Alfaro said the government has no plans to block Uber.Just in its first week, Uber reported 17,000 registered app users and 25,000 ride requests.
