India test-fires Agni V missile successfully

With the surface-to-surface Agni-V which is capable of striking a target more than 5,000 km away, India joined the elite missile club of the US, Russia, France and China

Dhamara (Odisha): India on Thursday took a giant leap in fortifying its strategic capability by successfully test-firing its nuclear capable Agni-V Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) with a strike range of 5,000 km, bringing China and the neighbouring region under its cover, reports PTI.

With this, India joined the elite missile club of the US, Russia, France and China.

The surface-to-surface Agni-V is capable of striking a target more than 5,000 km away. It is about 17-metres-long and two-metres-wide with launch weight of around 50 tonnes. The sophisticated missile can carry a nuclear warhead of more than one tonne.

"We had a successful launch of Agni-V. The missile lifted off at 8.07 hours today," Defence Research and Development Organisation chief VK Saraswat said after the three-stage solid propellant missile was test fired from launch complex-4 of Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Wheeler Island off the Odisha coast.

Agni-V had a smooth and perfect vertical lift-off from the launcher and a thorough analysis was done to assess its health parameters after retrieval of data from the wide range of sophisticated communication network systems, Mr Saraswat said.

"The sleek missile, within a few seconds of its blast-off from the Island launch pad roared majestically into the sky leaving behind its a trajectory a trail of thin orange and white smoke before disappearing," a defence official said.

The test-fire, which was originally scheduled to be held yesterday, had to be deferred at the last moment for safety reasons due to bad weather marked by rains and heavy lightning.

Reliance Comn told to pay Rs6,000 for deficiency in services

The Consumer Forum held that RCom was responsible for deficiency in services by not converting the SIM card of its subscriber to GSM from CDMA within stipulated time

Thane: Reliance Communications will have to cough up Rs6,000 towards damages to a city-based practising advocate for deficiency in services, reports PTI.

The district consumer court in its recent order directed the service provider to pay Rs5,000 towards the mental trauma, and physical and financial losses incurred by Advocate Subhash Kharat and Rs1,000 as litigation expenses.

Adv Kharat on 1 June 2011 had applied to Reliance Communications seeking conversion of his SIM card from CDMA to GSM mode. However, according to the complainant, the activation did not happen even after 25 days and in the meantime his CDMA card was deactivated.

Adv Kharat claimed in his petition that since he was not reachable, one of his clients Sanjay Chouhan, who was arrested by police, could not reach him and was jailed.

The lawyer said that he had suffered a monetary loss of around Rs1 lakh to Rs1.5 lakhs as his SIM card remained nonoperational.

He approached Reliance Communications for the same several times but the company did not not pay any heed to his complaints. Adv Kharat then approached the consumer forum seeking a compensation of Rs1.50 lakh on account of the losses, besides Rs3,500 towards notice charges and Rs15,000 as legal expenses from the company.

The forum, headed by president RB Somani and member Jyoti Iyer, held that the service provider was responsible for deficiency in services but held that the advocate had failed to prove the losses he suffered on account of nonoperation of the SIM card.
