Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, on September 13, launched Nagpur’s first CNG and LNG station at Rawmatt CNG Pump located near Automotive Square in the city. Also, present during the inauguration were Nagpur Mayor Nanda Jichkar, Vaddadi Subbarao (Director, Rawwmat Industries Private Limited), Padmesh Gupta, Kaustubh Gupta, Bunty Kukde (Chairman, Transport Committee, Nagpur Municipal Corporation), among other prominent people of the city.

The launch of the LNG and CNG mother station in Nagpur by Rawmatt Industries Private Limited is a step towards realising Gadkari’s vision of using alternate and eco-friendly fuel instead of petrol and diesel. Rawmatt has credited its technology partner INOXCVA, which is India’s largest cryogenic engineering company, and Nagpur Municipal Corporation for successfully adapting and executing the concept of CNG.

After the inauguration, Gadkari spoke at length with media persons about the advantages of alternate fuel and also extended his best wishes and gratitude to Rawmatt Industries for bringing CNG to Nagpur.

Compressed Natural Gas (methane stored at high pressure) is an alternate fuel, which is economical, emits less noxious gases, and is thus a viable replacement of gasoline, deisel fuel, and propane/LPG. From reduced exhaust emissions to reduced energy costs, CNG offers a range of sustainable, safer, economical and empowering solutions against conventional fuels and petroleum products, Because it’s cleaner, safer, powerful, cost-effective and indigenous, CNG is the best alternative fuel in the industry today.

Speaking about the difficulties in bringing CNG to Nagpur, Vaddadi Subbarao (Director, Rawmatt Industries) told Nation Next, It was a great challenge to bring LNG by road tankers to Nagpur and then convert to CNG as there is no natural gas pipeline closer to Nagpur. In bigger cities like Delhi and Mumbai, there is a City Gas Distribution (CGD) network to distribute CNG to stations and households. Rawmatt has taken all care to ensure appropriate supply chain management and proper inventory systems to ensure regular supply of CNG to Nagpur.

Subbarao added, We bring in LNG from Dahej Terminal in Gujarat with the help of tankers. Transporting LNG as compared to CNG is easy and cost effective. After LNG arrives in Nagpur at our facility, we convert it into CNG with the help of vaporisation and further transport it to daughter stations by CNG cascades mounted on vehicles.

The mother station at Automotive Square will be able to supply 23,000 kgs of CNG in Nagpur. It also has an additional facility to provide 15,000 kgs of Bio CNG. Currently two daughter stations (one at Khapri depot and second one at Wadi depot) are getting ready and will be operational in coming days.

Established in March 2017 in the centrally located city of Nagpur, Rawmatt Industries Private Limited is leading the field of manufacturing and supplying of CNG fuel dispensers. The company is committed to taking India close to its 0% emission goal, bossting the public transport with alternatives, providing affordable fuel solutions and extending the reach of CNG and LNG vehicles even to the rural areas.

BREAKING: Bombay High Court grants bail to Anil Deshmukh in money laundering case




Radhika Dhawad | Mumbai

Anil Deshmukh

Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted bail to former Maharashtra Home Minister and senior NCP leader Anil Deshmukh (72) in money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). However, Deshmukh would continue to be lodged in judicial custody in Arthur Road jail as he is also being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in an alleged corruption case.

Justice NJ Jamadar pronounced the order at 2.30 pm on Tuesday afternoon. While senior Advocate Vikram Chaudhari with advocate Aniket Nikam appeared for Deshmukh, a team of Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh with Advocates Aditya Thakker, Shreeram Shirsat and Amandeep Sra appeared for the central agency.

The bail was granted on a surety amount of 1 lakh. The ED has sought a stay on the operation of the order for two weeks. Deshmukh’s lawyers said that considering the former’s health and the fact that he had no criminal antecedents, he should be granted bail.

Deshmukh and his associates have been investigated for alleged corruption between 2019 and 2021. Deshmukh was arrested in November 2021.

And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review




Nation Next Newsroom | Bengaluru

Kantara poster

Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.

From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.

So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
