Evening Edition

Just a few headlines for this evening:

  • Health: Another Planning Commission report reveals that India faces a shortage of doctors and nurses, but that the private sector can help remedy this issue, and accordingly, plan to set up hundreds of new medical education institutions as a public private partnership.
  • Energy: IT companies often consume a large amount of energy, especially in their data cooling centres. This has led to the creation of green data centres that handle data with “maximum energy efficiency and minimal environmental impact.”
  • Housing: The Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation approved 696 projects aimed at achieving holistic slum development by providing adequate shelter and basic infrastructure facilities to urban slum dwellers.
