New Delhi, Oct 30: Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Tushar Gandhi on Monday opposed any re-investigation into the assassination of the Father of the Nation but the Supreme Court questioned his locus standi.

The querry from a bench headed by Justice S.A. Bobde came as senior counsel Indira Jaising told the court that she was seeking to intervene on behalf of the Mahatma’s grandson.

To which, Jaising questioned the locus standi of the petitioner seeking the reinvestigation.

Jaising said that the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi cannot be re-investigated after 70 years. She said that this was a basic criminal law.

However, the court adjourned the hearing by four weeks as amicus curiae Amrendra Sharan told the court he has got some documents from the National Archive but not the entire lot. (IANS)

Chennai, November 2, 2017: Thane in Maharashtra will be the first Indian city to be assessed for potential for implementation of district cooling system, said the Indian subsidiary of Danish company Danfoss A/S.

In a statement issued here, Danfoss Industries said: “As part of the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All Initiative, six cities in India including Thane, Pune, Bhubaneswar, Rajkot, Coimbatore and Bhopal have been chosen to explore District Energy systems.”

 “Thane – also part of the Central Government’s Smart Cities Mission – will be the first city to be assessed for its potential for implementation of the district energy system,” it said.

Simply put, district cooling is a system where water is chilled at a central place and is sent to various buildings via pipelines to cool indoor air using the air conditioning system there.

According to Danfoss, district cooling systems are energy efficient and would reduce total power consumption for cooling buildings.

The water is not for human consumption.

“With the Central Government’s vision to build 100 smart cities and the UN’s District Energy in Cities initiative, we are certain that the six pilot projects of District Cooling which are being launched today, will serve as an inspiration for the rest of the country,” Ravichandran Purushothaman, President, Danfoss Industries was quoted as saying in the statement.

“Danfoss has implemented both, district cooling and district heating technologies around the globe and we are now looking to showcase this expertise in India as well,” he added.(IANS)
