Oil India led consortium to bid for acquiring BPCL’s stake in Numaligarh Refinery

Published

on

New Delhi [India], February 19 (ANI): Oil India Ltd (OIL) in consortium with Engineers India Ltd (EIL) has decided to bid for acquiring 61.65 per cent stake of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) in Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL).
The bid is to be submitted through a formal process. The exact percentage of the stake of OIL and ElL will depend on the extent of right of first offer to be exercised by the state government of Assam which holds 12.35 per cent stake in NRL.
Last year, the Assam government had given a no-objection certificate to the NRL deal on condition that another 13.65 per cent stake in NRL will be sold to the state. This will increase the state government’s stake in the company to 26 per cent.
NRL is the largest customer of OIL’s crude produced from its northeastern fields. The acquisition is expected to improve synergy in OIL’s portfolio, it said in a statement.
The deal is likely to happen before the privatisation process of BPCL is over. The sale of BPCL is expected to be key in achieving the Rs 1.75 lakh crore disinvestment target set for the new financial year beginning April 1 (FY2021-22).
OIL, a navratna public sector undertaking, is a fully integrated exploration and production company in the upstream sector and is the second largest national oil and gas company in India as measured by total proved plus probable oil and natural gas reserves and production.
It is engaged in the business of exploration, development and production of crude oil and natural gas, transportation of crude oil and production of LPG. The company already has 26 per cent stake in NRL. (ANI)

Published

New Delhi [India], March 6 (ANI/BusinessWire India): Karnataka Health Promotion Trust (KHPT), in collaboration with the Central TB Division (CTD) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), held a webinar focusing on strengthening India’s health systems so they are more gender responsive, specifically in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The webinar brought together policy makers, health activists, and think tank leaders who discussed the importance of gender in responding to and determining the health needs of marginalized communities, especially women.
The panelists included Dr Nishant Kumar, Deputy Director, Central TB Division (CTD), the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Sangita Patel, Director, Health Office, USAID/India, Mohan HL, CEO, KHPT, Dr Avni Amin, Technical Officer, Department of Reproductive Health and Research on Violence Against Women, WHO, Geneva, Dalbir Singh, President, Global Coalition Against TB, Blessina Kumar, CEO, Global Coalition Against TB and Pallavi Prasad, Senior Journalist.
“KHPT is committed to empowering all communities especially the most vulnerable. Pandemics like any other disasters have a disproportionate effect on women, more so among the poorer and socially excluded community groups. There is a need for resilient systems that are equipped to address the unique needs of women in adverse circumstances. While we all aspire for equity in health, taking significant and actional steps towards this end through understanding barriers, designing gender sensitive solutions and building evidences of successes for scale is our responsibility. I am sure this discussion will provide practical insights from experts on how to collaborate towards our collective goal of ensuring health for all,” said Mohan HL, CEO, KHPT, drawing attention to the need for focusing on the most vulnerable population.
“In keeping with India’s commitment to ending TB, the CTD is currently expediting all efforts to ensure a comprehensive, multi-sectoral, person-centred approach to TB. In this context, to ensure gender-responsive TB care services, we have constituted a National Technical Expert Committee on TB in Women in October 2018. This framework reflects the interactions between TB and gender at various levels, and outlines the influences and constraints of gender on the TB burden and response; defines actions which would help move towards a gender-responsive approach; and provides guidance to implement these actions,” said Dr Nishant Kumar, Deputy Director, Central TB Division, MoHFW.
In her key remarks, Sangita Patel, Director, Health Office, USAID emphasized USAID’s commitment to address the issue and said, “I am proud that USAID and its partners take gender into consideration when designing and implementing health programs. USAID’s policy on ‘Gender Equality and Female Empowerment’ aims to improve the lives of vulnerable people around the world by advancing equality and empowering women and girls to participate fully in and benefit from the development of their societies. This is true for all our interventions, including the TB program.”
“Initiatives that engage men and boys must be intentionally gender-transformative by challenging harmful masculinities and male privilege and power over women. Such initiatives have the potential to reduce men’s risk behaviors, encourage their help seeking and facilitate men to share care work and decision-making In doing so, they can positively influence men’s own health and that of women by promoting gender equality as a key determinant of health,” said Dr Avni Amin, Technical Officer, Department of Reproductive Health and Research on Violence Against Women, WHO, Geneva, underscoring and acknowledging the involvement of boys and men in gender-based initiatives.
“Gender equality and gender equity can be addressed by using various approaches including legislation, organizational processes, and promotion of awareness and information gathering. Appropriate policy framework coupled with strong political will and resilient health systems could overcome gender inequities in access to and quality of care. Challenges like stigma and social ostracization and other vulnerabilities could be addressed by deeper engagement of communities and local governments,” said Dr Dalbir Singh, President, Global Coalition Against TB.

Fiscal deficit to undershoot, may spur cancellation of final two G-sec auctions: ICRA

Published

on

By

New Delhi [India], March 5 (ANI): The yield for the 5.85 per cent government security (GS) 2030 has risen by more than 35 basis points since its introduction to 6.23 per cent intra-day as on Friday with an uptick in recent weeks led by higher-than-expected fiscal deficit, ratings agency ICRA said.
The yield has also gone up due to borrowings for FY21 and FY22, a rise in US Treasury yields and hardening crude oil prices.
“In our assessment, there could be a modest upside to government’s tax revenues while its non-interest non-subsidy revenue expenditure may trail the revised estimate for FY21.”
Thus fiscal deficit in FY21 may end up undershooting the revised estimates of Rs 18.5 lakh crore by Rs 0.5 lakh crore to Rs 0.9 lakh crore, said ICRA.
Accordingly, we project the fiscal deficit in FY21 at Rs 17.6 lakh crore to Rs 18 lakh crore or 9 to 9.2 per cent of GDP, lower than the 9.5 per cent of GDP included in FY2021 revised estimates.
Based on this, ICRA assessed a lower borrowing requirement of the government in the remainder of this fiscal year.
“However, given the substantial development in today’s auction, it remains unclear whether the government will choose to cancel the last two weekly auctions of government security (G-sec) with a planned amount of Rs 49,000 crore instead of carrying forward larger cash balances.”
If the final two G-sec auctions for March do end up being cancelled, ICRA expects the yield for the benchmark 5.85 GS 2030 may temporarily soften from the current levels to 6.1 to 6.15 per cent in the remainder of this month.
“In our view, the benchmark yield may rise during Q1 FY22 to as much as 6.35 per cent by the end of the quarter,” it said. (ANI)
