DELHI METRO RAREST FEAT

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has achieved a rare feat in Metro construction by crossing over its existing operational line at the Kakarduma Metro Station at a record height of 21 meters above the ground. "This is among the first of such achievements in Metro construction so far as Delhi Metro is poised to repeat more such achievements in its Phase III project which is slated to be completed by 2016," a DMRC official said. 
The new 59-kilometers long Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar metro line is crossing the existing Vaishali- Dwarka elevated line at 21 m above the ground and is 10 m above the existing Metro line. "Delhi Metro has crossed the existing Metro line at such a height in a very safe and systematic manner with all safety precautions in place. The launching of girder and erection of span was carried out in a very watchful manner with extra precaution," the official assured. According to DMRC official, an extensive round-the-clock CCTV monitoring was done adjacent to the rail track to avoid any signs of electrocution and fall of material during crossing.  
The elevated viaducts of Phase III project will pass over the existing viaducts of the Phase I and Phase II metro corridors at four more different locations. At Netaji Subhas Place, the viaduct of the Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor will pass over Line 1 of Rithala – Dilshad Garden. The viaduct of the Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor will pass over Airport Express Line at Dhaula Kuan. The Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor viaduct will pass over Line III of Dwarka Sector 21 to NOIDA City Centre at Mayur Vihar. At Anand Vihar, viaduct of the Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor will pass over Line IV of Yamuna Bank - Vaishali. "Construction for crossing over of Metro viaduct at the existing Karkarduma Metro station was never an easy task for the Metro engineers. It posed numerous challenges to the civil engineers throughout the project as this is one of the highest crossings of Metro line," the official said.

DHIRUBHAI ENJOYED IN WEALTH CREATION

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977. A person who had put in Rs 1,000 then in the IPO is worth over a million today, going by the price of RIL. Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…

BEAR GRIP ON INDIAN STOCK MARKET

RECORDS 1 WEEKLY FALL IN 6 WEEKS
Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
