DIAL had demanded a 775% hike and had challenged the airport tariff in the AERAI appellate authority . Meanwhile, the AERAl initiated the process of fixing charges for 2014-19. It extended the 346% hike, but clarified that an adjustment would be made for the coming five-year period. DIAL had realised 188 crore in excess of its revenue target for 2014-19 as on April 1, 2014Air India alleged that DIAL would have collected around 9,000 crore more by the end of 2019 if the old tariff continued The AERA then passed an order for a 78% hike in January 2015 in the airport charges for 2014-19. However, DIAL moved the Delhi HC and managed to get a stay on the tariff order, which put a statu:s quo on the airport charges till appeals were disposed against the tariff order cases pending in AERAI tribunal.

Page-l:A hardy millet yields its genetic code Page-1: A hardy millet yields its genetic code In a first, Karnataka's agricultural scientists have sequenced the genetic code of ragi, or finger millet, throwing light on the exact building blocks that make it drought-resistant and nutrition- rich . Scientists from the University of Agricultural Sciences-Bengaluru (UAS-B) achieved the sequencing of the plant, which, the scientists say, was first domesticated from a wild species in Western Uganda and the Ethiopian highlands before being introduced to India around 3,000 BC . The key genetic information revealed by the four-year project will aid further research on ragi, the main crop of dry land farmers. Facts: [i] Ragi occupies 12% of global millet cultivation area; [ii] Karnataka, which has the second largest drought-prone crop land after Rajasthan, leads in its cultivation. [ii] With a low glycemic index, ragi is no longer the poor man's staple, and is preferred by diabetics.
