GAIL India Ltd has proposed to set up 5,500km of gas connectivity over the next two-three years investing $4 billion.
"We have planned to add 1,000km of gas connectivity every year and in another two-three years we will be laying gas connectivity to around 5,500km across the country... We are investing $4 billion for these projects," GAIL India general manager (gas marketing) Rajendra Tiwari said. He hoped that that it would help reduce the production and demand gap in the country.
GAIL is in the process of laying additional pipelines in the Dadri-Bawana-Nangal and Chainsna-Jhajjar-Hissar region so as to serve the Northern market and this year alone around 1,000 km were laid, Mr Tiwari said.
On Friday, GAIL declined 0.67% to Rs493.60 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex closed 2.31% down at 19,242.36 points.
Everonn Education Ltd has launched Edupreneurs a novel project to promote people with entrepreneurial skills. Everonn Edupreneur targets 1,000 locations.
Everonn will be able to effectively address the issue of standardised content and course delivery by experts which will ultimately help students to overcome the hitherto existing gaps in learning. Each of these new education centres to be run by Edupreneurs will provide teaching content catering to students from pre-School to B-School. Through a carefully planned selection process, Everonn will mobilize Edupreneurs from cross sections of first and second generation business entrepreneurs. They will be Everonn's Ambassadors of Learning. Everonn will employ a combination of tools from the brick and mortar format to technology platforms for delivering content for which the VSAT network will form the backbone.
The VSAT-based education provides an ideal solution to the perennial shortage of teaching staff and will ensure a consistent learning experience through programming from a single location that can be beamed to multiple centres.
On Friday, Everonn Education declined 0.95% to Rs599 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex closed 2.31% down at 19,242.36 points.
Opto Circuits India Ltd's wholly-owned subsidiary Cardiac Science Corporation has added two electrocardiographs (ECGs) under its Burdick brand.
The ECGs, available only in the US, deliver built-in, bi-directional communication so that customers can connect to leading electronic medical records (EMRs).
The Burdick 8500 ECG features a user friendly interface, multi-angle seven-inch widescreen, adjustable protocol settings, and colour display to make reading the continuous waveform data easy.
The Burdick 8300 offers similar performance, connectivity, reliability and workflow in an economic package.
Both ECG devices clean the ECG waveform before it is measured and analysed by the Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) algorithm. With more than 30 years of continuous refinement, the GRI algorithm is the first and only to consider five clinically significant variables-including gender, age, race, medication, and classification-to interpret patient data.
On Friday, Opto Circuits gained 3.82% at Rs269.05 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex closed 2.31% down at 19,242.36 points.
