When fuel comes pricey - Pioneer
There have been significant murmurs about how fuel prices in India have been shooting up silently ever since the Government allowed daily price adjustment. This, despite global crude prices being relatively stable at around the mid-50 dollar mark and the value of the rupee to the dollar also being stable at around the 63-64 mark.
Welcome move on commercial coal mining - Economic Times
We welcome the opening up of domestic coal for commercial mining. This is one piece of reform that is entirely to this government’s credit. One can crib that it comes late in the day after fossil fuels have fallen firmly into disfavour. 
Understanding the slowdown - Puja Mehra, Hindu
India’s economy is slowing down: GDP growth has lost momentum in each quarter since the one ending March 2016. With every passing quarter, the slowdown is explained away either as a transitory phenomenon or as happening for reasons beyond the government’s control: deficient rains, the sluggish world economy, or lately due to demonetisation and the goods and services tax (GST). The reasons offered change. The economic trend does not.
Bullet train kicks off! Narendra Modi, Shinzo Abe give 164-year-old Indian Railways a $17-bn jolt - Anurag Kotoky & Kiyotaka Matsuda, Economic Times
Japan’s government and its rail companies lobbied the US for years to sell its bullet-train technology and found little success. Finally, there’s an international buyer: India. The South Asian country is poised to become the first to import the iconic ‘Shinkansen’ bullet-train technology after Japan’s near-neighbor Taiwan, and that will be a highlight of India’s infrastructure upgrade program.
No feel for the pulse - Ashok Gulati & Smriti Verma, Indian Express

Domestic absorption in recent years (2012-13 to 2015-16) has hovered between 21 million metric tonnes (MMT) and 23 MMT, while domestic production has ranged from 16.4 MMT to 19.3 MMT.
Cleaning up the roads - Pioneer
Union Minister for Road Transport Nitin Gadkari minced no words when he spoke to the Indian automotive industry a few days ago and threatened to ‘bulldoze’ them into oblivion if they did not subscribe to the Government’s clean energy push. In a sense, Gadkari is right. There is a global push towards alternative energy vehicles — the UK has said that it will ban the sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040. 
3 factors slowing the economy down when rest of the world is growing: Raghuram Rajan - Supriya Shrinate, Economic Times
We were looking for a title and she has always been a good sounding board and I had something like sort of RBI Days and all that. She remembered this statement and it came from one of the monetary policy press conferences. I should have started saying "My name is Raghuram Rajan" and stopped but I said "My name is Raghuram Rajan" and then I realised that I lost the Bond cue. 
Boosting India’s growth rate - Tripti Sangwan, Pioneer
Growth and development are often talked in the same perspective by a common man without realising that there is stark difference between the two. India’s growth rate has been applauded countrywide and even worldwide.
Why bitcoin's the new gold - David Fickling, Bloomberg
The idea has a lot of intuitive appeal. Gold bugs and bitcoin fetishists tend to share a deep distrust of fiat currency and the nation state, an impregnable bullishness about their favored asset class, and an obsessive attention to details of market movements combined with a blithe disinterest in bigger-picture issues.
