Published: September 1 2016 4:43 am The other is doubling farmers’ income — presumably in real terms — also by 2022 when India celebrates its 75th year of Independence (Illustration by: Illustration: Subrata Dhar) Top News Of its several new initiatives the Narendra Modi government has set out at least two very ambitious targets which are also quantifiable One is achieving 100 giga-watts (GW) of solar power generation capacity by the year 2022 The other is doubling farmers’ income — presumably in real terms — also by 2022 when India celebrates its 75th year of Independence If achieved both would mark major leaps forward given the country’s current solar generation capacity of barely 8 GW (or 8000 megawatts) and the past record of farmers’ real incomes increasing by a mere 35 per cent on a compounded annual growth basis during 2002-03 to 2012-13 If incomes were to indeed double in real terms between now and 2022 the corresponding growth rate would work out to 12 per cent per annum So the question to ask is whether the above targets are really achievable or simply slogans We believe that the Modi government can definitely make substantial progress in meeting both objectives provided they are conceived and implemented in unison — a sort of marrying and building on each other Our confidence in this stems primarily from the dramatically declining costs of solar power globally as well as in India by almost 70 per cent since 2010-11 That as the accompanying chart shows has also given a fillip to solar power capacity addition In the process solar power has emerged as a competitive source of energy especially in comparison to that produced from burning of coal The cost of generating and supplying power through the latter was Rs 593/kWh in India in 2013 as per government estimates As against this the bidding rates in most solar power projects today range between Rs 43 to Rs 55/kWh There are two policy innovations needed now that can help unleash a simultaneous revolution in solar power and doubling of farmers’ incomes To start with the government should have a guaranteed feed-in-tariff (FIT) for solar energy produced in rural areas and sold to power distribution companies or discoms Secondly the FIT or price paid to rural producers of solar power should be at least 10-15 per cent higher than that made to power stations burning coal so as to address the negative externalities from the latter on climate change and human health This would translate to a rate of Rs 6 to Rs 650/kWh for solar power Such innovations in policy could trigger out-of-box ideas That includes installing solar panels on farmers’ fields at 15-20 feet height above the ground It basically allows enough sunlight for the photosynthetic activity of the plants growing below the panels The farmers’ field would then look like a chessboard growing two crops The first is a ‘traditional’ one on the soil and the other a ‘solar crop’ above the ground The major benefit to farmers from this is that they would get access to assured irrigation from solar power It will replace not just their diesel gen-sets but also probably provide freedom from grid-linked electricity which is highly uncertain and often of poor quality If solar power from their own fields is combined with drip and fertigation farmers can reduce water and fertiliser usage by almost 50 per cent even while raising productivity by 25-40 per cent Furthermore they can feed surplus power over and above their requirements to the grid Such guaranteed FIT-based power can provide regular additional monthly income besides acting like an income insurance cover when their traditional crops fail on account of drought For the government too there can be huge savings on power subsidy bills that currently hover around Rs 70000 crore a year On-farm solar power generation can moreover trigger all-round development activity in rural India With availability of quality 24/7 power there would be a boost to creation of cold chains food processing and other small-scale industries that can produce millions of jobs apart from the setting up of schools hospitals and other social infrastructure in rural areas Proverbially speaking Prime Minister Modi would be able to hit several targets with a single arrow The technology for solar power generation on farms thankfully already exists While countries like Japan China and the UK have demonstrated that it can be done Germany is the unquestioned leader in the field today with technologies where the photovoltaic cells in solar panels can actually move like sunflowers following the direction of sun Business-to-business and government-to-government collaboration with such countries especially Germany and Japan can bring in rich dividends for India The model’s USP is not only its generating clean energy on a cost competitive basis but also inclusiveness through millions of farmers producing solar power as a second ‘crop’ in their fields and feeding the surplus electricity to grids on a guaranteed FIT basis What are the challenges to realising the twin dreams of 100 GW of solar power capacity including in farms and doubling of farmer incomes by 2022 The obvious one is getting the state governments on board for implementing the system of FIT This is where the role of power minister Piyush Goyal comes in Given his dedicated endeavours for rural electrification and restoring the financial health of bleeding utilities through the innovative UDAY (Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojana) scheme one hopes he would also move in this direction But equally important is the role of the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Since doubling of farmers’ incomes is its responsibility Krishi Bhawan should proactively work towards promoting farmers’ solar associations and mobilising necessary finances through say NABARD or even multilateral institutions such as the World Bank These can be used to enable farmers make upfront capital investments on the fields But the overall responsibility to get ministries work together in tandem rests with the Prime Minister’s Office In his recent trip to Africa Modi said: “Aspire high dream big and do more” Before him we also had former President A P J Abdul Kalam saying: “Dream is not that which you see while sleeping; it is something that does not let you sleep” Can

school holidays adding that “such meet and interaction will help the children to develop a bond” with his family members in Gujarat “which is essential for emotional and social growth and overall development of the children” The court was hearing an application filed by the man seeking 50 per cent overnight access and overnight custody of his two children during their Diwali vacation The mother had been given the custody of the children On the basis of consent terms filed by the parties the father was given 50 per cent overnight access and overnight custody of the children during summer vacation with liberty to apply for custody in future holidays The mother however raised objections to granting overnight access to the father who lives in Gujarat even in Mumbai According to her counsel in 2014 the parents of the woman’s estranged husband had taken the children with them from the school without her permission resulting in her filing a complaint with the police Therefore the previous conduct of the father and his parents had raised apprehensions about him bringing back the children to Mumbai “It is not in dispute that subsequent to 2014 the father has availed overnight access of the minor children During such access he did not conduct himself in a manner as to doubt his bonafide or to give rise to a apprehension that he would not return the children” said Justice Anuja Prabhudessai The court granted access on condition that the children would not be taken beyond the limits of Gujarat and the mother could talk to them over Skype during a specified time “It is also pertinent to note that the father is based in Gujarat His parents and immediate family lives in Gujarat Allowing the father to take the children to Gujarat will help the children to meet their paternal grandparents uncles aunts and cousins Such meet and interaction will help the children to develop a bond with their family members which is essential for emotional and social growth and
