Tata Motors Won't Discontinue the Bolt Hatchback September 26, 2016 16:43

Despite low sales of the Bolt hatchback, Tata Motors has officially stated that it won't discontinue the Bolt hatchback, after rumors surfaced that it would. As Tata Motors revised its plans of launching the Bolt Sports, it led to rumors that it would discontinue the Bolt as well.However, it is now made clear that Tata Motors will continue to have the Bolt sold in India. It was through the Bolt hatchback that Tata Motors brought in its IMPACT design language, which has influenced most of the current Tata models that led to some great sales as with the Tata Tiago.Even for the Bolt, the new design language gave it immediate success, while the sales declined considerably after a while. Though introduced in January 2015, Tata Motors has since had only 17,000 units sold of the Bolt hatchback.The Bolt, Tiago, Zest and the soon-to-be-launched Tata Kite 5 bear similar design traits, including the front fascia. With the Bolt, the design became more fluid than the solid-design previous generation models of the Tata Motors.The fluid design has well-lined side profile, aesthetic front-grille, sculpted fog lamp provisions, sweptback headlights, sloping A-pillar and blackened B-and-C-pillars. The rear design looks the most attractive with black bumper-cladding, high-ground clearing stance, well-designed bootlid and rear spoiler.The Tata Bolt comes with both petrol and diesel-powered engines with the 1.2-litre Revotron turbocharged mill making 84 bhp of power at 5,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 1,750-3,500 rpm. The diesel mill, on the other hand, makes 73 bhp and 190 Nm of torque. Both the engines get mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.It also gets the Multidrive option, which is attractive for the buyers. The Bolt is also expected to be relegated to the fleet vehicles, while it also has an export market in Nepal. Also Read: Toyota is Making ABS and EBD Standard in all its Manufacture Source: Vicky.in

197 run win against New Zealand in Kanpur test September 26, 2016 14:54

Ravichandran Ashwin claimed six wickets in the second innings as India recorded a 197-run win vs New Zealand in their historic 500th Test at Kanpur to assert their supremacy in home conditions, bowling out New Zealand for 236 to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. At a precarious 93 for four, overnight New Zealand batsmen Luke Ronchi (80) and Mitchell Santner (71) faced the Indian bowlers for only 20 overs by adding 65 runs in the morning session.The Black Caps raised hopes of a fight till the time Ronchi and Santner held the fort but it all went upside down for them when the former played an extravagant slog sweep off Ravindra Jadeja, handing India the opening.Ashwin (6/132) completed his fifth six-wicket haul by adding scalps of Santner and Ish Sodhi (17) and Neil Wagner (0) and had become the second-fastest man to take 200-Test wickets  while grabbing three wickets on Sunday.Jadeja took one wicket on Monday while Mohammed Shami, who got some reverse swing, scalped two batsmen in the morning session.The Kiwis struggled to negotiate a slow track, which had offered occasional turn and bounce but improved as the match wore on. The visitors, chasing a mammoth 434-run target, had been a daunting task at hand to bat out three full sessions on the fifth day, which has always been a big challenge.With this win, India has inched closer to the No.1 spot in the ICC Test rankings. Virat Kohli’s men need to win this series to go on the top in the list. After the Kolkata Test, the two teams will travel to Indore for the series finale, which is scheduled from October 8."The boys applied themselves really well. Initially we had the momentum with the bat, but a couple of soft dismissals put pressure. Jadeja and Ashwin added crucial runs. I am still pretty early in my captaincy career, I look forward to advice from others. There have been cases where we've gone on one mode and the runs were leaked. All the sides that are doing well around the world have strong lower-middle orders. That's one area that we have improved and we need to keep working it because those 30-40 extra runs could prove crucial," Vrat Kohli, Indian Captain said."India outplayed us with bat and ball. Restricting India to 300 odd on a good batting surface was a good effort, but at the end of the day India were certainly the better team. The way Santner applied himself with both bat and ball was impressive and the way Luke Ronchi came back into the side was good to see. We look forward to another challenge in Kolkata," Kane Williamson, New Zealand Captain said.By Premji

"Cauvery Water Will be Released to TN Until Year End" Karnataka to SC September 26, 2016 11:55

Two days after passing a unanimous resolution in the Legislature on reserving water for drinking, Karnataka on Monday told the Supreme Court that it would not be able to release Cauvery water to neighbour Tamil Nadu until the year end.The apex court had directed Karnataka to release 6,000 cusecs of water daily to Tamil Nadu for seven days till tomorrow.Karnataka expressed inability to release water, saying its reservoirs don't have adequate water.Urging the court to modify its order, Karnataka said that the water, which comes to 42,000 cusecs, should be treated as "arrears" and can be released by the end of December.After the SC verdict, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had said, “This is an unimplementable order.” The order overturned the Cauvery Supervisory Committee directive, which had specified only 3,000 cusecs to be released for ten days between September 21 to 27.The total quantum of water as specified by the Cauvery Supervisory Committee order would have seen Karnataka release 30,000 cusecs of water for ten days. Instead, with the Apex Court order, the water released to Tamil Nadu was increased to 42,000 cusecs of water. Also Read: Cauvery water dispute, Supreme Court modified its earlier orderBY M.

ISRO Launches Weather Satellite SCATSAT-1 September 26, 2016 11:39

An Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket on Monday morning lifted off successfully with the country’s weather satellite SCATSAT-1 and seven others.The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for the first time used its own multiple burn technology while launching eight satellites - five foreign and three domestic - in different orbits.Multiple burn technology is the switching off and switching on of a rocket’s engine in space mainly to launch satellites in different orbits. The PSLV rocket standing 44.4 metre tall and weighing 320 tonne, tore into the morning skies at 9.12 am with a growl breaking free of the earth’s gravitational pull.The rocket was ferrying eight satellites weighing around 665kg and will be put into orbit in two phases.According to ISRO, SCATSAT-1 is a continuity mission for Oceansat-2 scatterometer to provide wind vector data products for weather forecasting, cyclone detection and tracking services to the users.The PSLV’s main cargo- the 371 kg SCATSAT-1 for ocean and weather related studies - will be put into a 730 km polar sun synchronous orbit, 17 minutes into the flight.The remaining seven satellites will be placed in a 689 km polar orbit around two hours and 15 minutes after the rocket’s lift off. These include five foreign satellites: three from Algeria (Alsat-1B 103kg, Alsat-2B 117kg, Alsat-1N 7kg), and one each from Canada (NLS-19, 8kg) and US (Pathfinder-44kg).The two other Indian satellites are - Pratham (10kg) built by Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay and Pisat (5.25 kg) from PES University, Bengaluru and its consortium.Around 16 minutes into the flight, the rocket’s fourth state or the engine will be cut off and a minute later the weather satellite SCATSAT-1 will be put into orbit.According to ISRO, SCATSAT-1 is a continuity mission for Oceansat-2 scatterometer to provide wind vector data products for weather forecasting, cyclone detection and tracking services to the users. The satellite carries Ku-band scatterometer similar to the one flown onboard Oceansat-2. The mission life of the satellite is five years.After slinging SCATSAT-1 into its orbit the rocket’s fourth stage would be restarted after one hour 22 minutes into the flight and cut off around 20 seconds later. Two hours and 11 minutes into the flight the fourth stage will again be restarted to be cut off one minute later.Following that in three minutes all the seven satellites would be ejected putting an end to PSLV’s longest mission till date. The PSLV rocket is a four stage/engine rocket powered by solid and liquid fuel alternatively.Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) director K. Sivan told on Sunday that "the long time gap between the cutting off of the engine and its restart is not an issue. The first time the multiple burn technology was first tested by ISRO while flying its PSLV rocket on December 16, 2015 and this June, the technology was again demonstrated."About the challenge to be faced, Sivan said, “After cutting off the engine, its condition should be brought to such a stage that it could be restarted again. The next challenge is to controlling the engine and bringing it so as to eject the remaining satellites into a different orbit.”He said "the rocket has GPS aided navigation system so that data generated by the rocket’s inertial navigation system and the one provided by the former will be blended so as to erase and errors and to generate a precise data." ISRO Chairman A. S. Kiran Kumar "Good Afternoon to all of you. Today we have seen a launch from PSLV where we have bben able to put different satellites from different countries and our own SCATSAT-1 being put into different orbits, different local times and this is one of the new capability which PSLV has demonstrated."
