45 Composite Application Form In the current scenario, the investor needs to fill multiple application forms to avail various services from Government agencies. An analysis of the forms indicates significant overlap in the information sought such as the identity of the applicant, demographics of the applicant/business unit etc. eBiz will create a Composite Application Form combining the common elements and creating a single form through which the investor can apply for multiple services. The eBiz project will be operated as a PPP for a period of 10 years. The first three years will constitute the pilot phase, and will earmark setting up of the eBiz portal and provisioning of 29 services covering 9 central government departments and 5 states (Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Delhi) in the first year. The list of 29 services is given in table 5.1 additional services have been identified for implementation during second and third year.

A wide range of wires and voltage transmission lines which carry cables are manufactured in the country electricity over long distance. These lines which includes communication cables typically feed into sub-station so that the such as jelly filled telephone cables, optic electrical voltage can be reduced to a fibre cables, local area network cables, level that can subsequently be used by the switchboard cables, coaxial cables, VSAT customers. There is an increasing shift in cables, electrical cables such as electrical India to have larger power stations, wires, winding wires, automotive/battery particularly mega and ultra-mega power cables, UPS cables, flexible wires, low projects. Consequently while there would voltage power cables and EHT power be fewer but larger power generating cables. The power cable industry may be stations, the demand for transmission of mainly divided into four segments viz: energy would grow substantially.

The cement produced replacing 80% limestone showed comparable performance. A study has been carried out on use of Jarosite, a solid residual byproduct Mineral Gypsum generated by zinc industry. As jarosite consist of sulphate bearing mineral phases it has been used as set controller replacing mineral gypsum in the manufacture of cement. Preliminary investigations were carried out using 20-40-60-80 and 100 percent jarosite replacing mineral gypsum and it was found that more than 40 percent of mineral gypsum could be replaced by jarosite in regulating the cement setting. This could be attributed to compatible solubility of sulphate bearing phases in Synthetic Gypsum jarosite.
