Paris negotiators onto clinching deal


Dec 11
Negotiators at the Paris climate summit have been working through the night to try to reach a global agreement, with talks in their final day. There is a widespread expectation that the deal will be signed today, though the timings are uncertain. Delegates worked through yesterday night on a draft version to iron out the key barriers to an agreement.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who is chairing the summit, told that he thinks they will make it. This was seen as a significant moment after discussions that began in 2011 about a new global agreement that would stake out a long-term strategy for dealing with climate change. Any deal signed here in Paris would come into being in 2020.
The main sticking points on reaching a climate change agreement here have been over finance, long-term goals and differentiation. Some campaigners were not happy with Thursday’s draft, saying it denied climate justice. Other groups though found positives in the latest version.
But despite these differences, there is optimism here that a compromise can be found. The French government has been praised for its handling of this summit and for pushing for a deal to be reached.

Delhi Biggest Polluter, Tax Evader, Trading Hub, No Industry

Honorable Chief Justice of India Justice TS Thakur Has in First Week of Working has already up taken Two Critical Reforms – Qualification Requirement for Elected Representatives & Environment Pollution.

I was critical of GST essentially because it would lead to near total monopoly of tax collections with Center and States will not generate enough funds for their Social & Economic Programs.
When Delhi GDP is Rs.4,51,153 Crores – Motor Vehicles Tax collected is barely Rs.1,558 Crores for 9m MV Registered in Delhi and Many More Entering Delhi not even 0.4% of Delhi State GDP.  Sales Tax Collection Just Rs.3,422 Cr or 0.8% of State GDP – in per capita terms Rs.900 for MV and Rs.2000 for ST. VAT Collection was Rs.18,289 Cr or 4% Of GDP.  This is points to Massive Tax Evasion & Too Little Budget for Social Services.  Delhi Industry is MOST POLLUTING BASIC INDUSTRIES Index 102 [2004-05 Base Yr = 100]

GDP Growth 15.67%, But Tax Collection Up 2.64%
[Motor Vehicle Tax 10.61%, State Excise 8.59% & VAT 2.03%]
This Scandalous as Tax Collection in Delhi is Pathetic – Even When GDP Records Growth of 15.67% – Tax Collection Goes Up By Just 2.64%.
Chapter 4. Para 8:  Tax Collection of Delhi Government registered a growth of 2.64 per cent in 2014-15 (Prov) as compared to the growth of 10.61 per cent in 2013-14. All components in the tax revenue showed a lesser growth during 2014-15 (Prov). Stamps and Registration fees recorded the negative growth of 4.34 per cent in 2014-15. Tax collections under Motor Vehicle Tax, State Excise and VAT recorded a growth of 10.61 per cent, 8.59 per cent and 2.03 per cent respectively while Other Taxes comprising Luxury Tax, Entertainment Tax, Betting Tax, etc, registered a growth of 6.20 per cent during 2014-15(Prov). Entrainment tax including Cable TV Tax recorded the lowest growth of 3.28 per cent during 2014-15 (Prov).
Delhi Pollution Causing Trading Hub
‘All DELHI TRADING HUBS / CENTERS MOST POLLUTING’

It is Scandalous when VAT & ST in Delhi together is barely 4.8% of GDP – Trading Centers – Azadpur Market to Nehru Place, Sadar Bazaar to Sarojini Nagar are most Crowded and Source of MAX Pollution – Highest TAX EVASION POINTS.

Chapter19: — It is major distribution centre borne out by the fact that 49 per cent of the fuel, 47 per cent of food grains, 44 per cent of iron and steel and 78 per cent of fruit and vegetables imported to Delhi are re-exported to other parts of India as well as foreign nations also. Delhi also has a ‘Container Depot at Tughlaqabad’.

Haryana & UP states have Own Refineries yet 49% of Fuel is Exported, and 47% Food Grains, 44% of Steel, 78% RAW Fruits & Vegetables are Exported.
Surely These Bulk Commodities Don’t Contribute to TAXES – But Only to Pollution Can Be Relocated Outside Delhi – Delhi to Import Processed or Cleaned Fruits & Vegetables Directly Delivered to Homes Like Milk Supply.
YAMUNA RIVER PROVIDES 20% OF DELHI WATER SUPPLY
Chapter 13:  Source of Raw water in Delhi is from Ganga River (330 MGD), YamunaRiver (207 MGD), Bhakra Storage (218 MGD) and from ground water (80 MGD). The water treatment and supply capacity, which was 650 MGD in 2002 has been increased to 906 MGD in 2014.
Yamuna Award 444 MDG – Get  207 MGD – Need 1000 MGD
When Delhi needs 1000 MGD of Surface Water – Yamuna Contributes just 207 MGD as but is actually entitled to 730 MCM of Water – or 2 MCM Per Day as per 1954/1994 Yamuna Tribunal Awards or 444 MGD. In 61 years Delhi couldn’t get water allocation based on average requirement than Fluctuating Inflows.
Delhi could well have Drawn 1000 MGD & Returned 600 MGD water
in to Agra Canal for Haryana use after Water Treatment.
In absence of Renuka, Lakhwar & Vyasi Dams –
3000 MGD of Water is Lost to Sea Every Year in Monsoon.
EDUCATION EXPENDITURE $60/CAPITA – 0.8% OF GDP
Chapter15 – Gross Budget plan and non plan expenditure under education, higher education and technical education, sports and arts and culture sector is Rs.3852 Cr or just 0.8% of Delhi GDP. Most Delhi students go out of Delhi for Studies due to inadequate Seats and Delhi Government continuing with Useless ARTS Courses not MATCHING the NEEDS OF DELHI STUDENTS.
Most of 4.4m Delhi School Children are not admitted to nearest schools
add to say 6m Avoidable Daily TRIPS in Buses, Autos & Taxis.
HEALTHCARE EXPENDITURE $30/CAPITA – 0.4% OF GDP
Chapter16 – When Delhi has Worst Air Quality & Water Most Polluted in the World, Delhi the richest state Spend just $30 per capita on Healthcare.
GDP Grows But Plan Budget STAGNANT Rs.13,500 – 3% GDP– 4% Earlier > 45% of 12th Plan Target Achieved in 1St 3 Yrs.
Chapter7 – Plan Expenditure of Delhi in Three Years of 12th Plan is Rs.13,237 Cr, Rs.13,994 Cr and Rs.13,272 Cr – for Delhi GDP figures of Rs.334915 Cr, Rs. 391125 Cr and Rs. 451154 Cr. 12th Plan Exp is Down to 3% from 4% in First Yr.
