    Rental markets for mechanisation in India: Trends and current state

    Tendering trash: Lessons in urban waste management from Indian cities

    South Asian cities are urbanising rapidly. With this, overflowing landfills and trash laden streets are becoming more common.

    Should electricity be a right?

    The question ‘is electricity a commodity or a public utility?’ is thought provoking. A related question is if electricity should be a right and what does it mean. Does it mean people have the right to use as much electricity as they want and at what price? Or should a basic minimum quantity of electricity be available to all irrespective of their ability to pay? The...
