Abstract: Background. The purpose of this study is environmental impact assessment of the industrial estate development planning. Methods. This cross-sectional study was conducted in 2010 in Isfahan province, Iran. GIS and matrix methods were applied. Data analysis was done to identify the current situation of the region, zoning vulnerable areas, and scoping the region. Quantitative evaluation was done by using matrix of Wooten and Rau. Results. The net score for impact of industrial units operation on air quality of the project area was (−3). According to the transition of industrial estate pollutants, residential places located in the radius of 2500 meters of the city were expected to be affected more. The net score for impact of construction of industrial units on plant species of the project area was (−2). Environmental protected areas were not affected by the air and soil pollutants because of their distance from industrial estate. Conclusion. Positive effects of project activities outweigh the drawbacks and the sum scores allocated to the project activities on environmental factor was (

Abstract: Energy is basically the capacity of a body to do work. The different forms of energy are: Mechanical energy, Thermal energy, Chemical energy, Electronic energy, Nuclear energy, Gravitational energy.Presently in India goes through very critical condition about energy, and peoples of Maharashtra faces problem of load shading .therefore human live, facilities, transportation, agriculture, industries, like all sectors goes through this problem. So there is need of definite utilization and increases productivity of energy by various ways.Generation of power increase only 1.6% from 2008-09 to 2009-10. Use of electricity in various sectors increase by 4.5% from 2007-08 to 2008-09. Use of electricity in Industrial and household sector also increased.

Abstract: Access to good-quality health services is crucial for the improvement of health outcomes, such as those targeted by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by the international community in 2000. For example, the reduction of maternal mortality by 75% in 2015 depends on access to skilled care at birth and during the pregnancy [1,2]. But often, services are not available at a reasonable distance; or they are available, but people cannot afford them. Or, they are not accessible for some organizational reason, such as limited hours of presence of staff, unfriendly behaviour towards users, cultural barriers, and so on. Accessibility of health services is a multidimensional concept [3] that refers to geographical, economic (affordability), organizational and cultural (acceptability) factors that can facilitate or hinder use of services.This article will focus on the geographical dimension of access and on one of its critical determinants: the availability of qualified personnel. There are many examples of poor countries that provide good coverage of their territory with health facilities yet limited access to services, because facilities lack the personnel needed to function normally. A well-balanced distribution of infrastructures needs to go hand-in-hand with a well-balanced distribution of health personnel to be worth the investment, let alone to have an impact on the health of the population.Unbalanced distribution of health personnel between and within countries is a worldwide, longstanding and serious problem. All countries, rich and poor, report a higher proportion of health personnel in urban and wealthier areas. In Nicaragua, around 50% of the health personnel are concentrated in the capital, Managua, which comprises only one-fifth of the country's population [4]. In Mexico, it is estimated that 15% of all physicians are unemployed, underemployed or inactive. Yet despite this apparent surplus, rural posts remain unfilled [5]. Indonesia's vast size and di

Abstract: The Solapur district is one of the urbanized districts in the Maharashtra state having about one third of the population in urban areas whereas about two fifth of state population lives in urban area. The Solapur district accounts for 31.83 per cent of total population concentrated in urban areas. The level of urbanization is a good indicator of level of development and also provides the base for analyzing the quality of life in spatial perspective. In this paper an attempt has been made to examine the levels of urbanization. The entire study is based on secondary data.Data is mainly derived from the District Census Handbook of Solapur and Socio economic Review and District Statistical Abstract of Solapur.Tehsil is selected as basic unit of study investigation.The year selected for study is 2001census year.Level of urbanization is calculated by using Z score value as well as on total percentage of urban population.

Abstract: As the largest private enterprise in India, agriculture contributes one forth of the national GDP. Agriculture has been and will continue to be the life line of India economy. However, agriculture productivity and development differ very much from region to region, which needs a detail investigation. The temperature and pedagogical conditions are favorable for growing valuable crops like jawar, sugarcane, oil seeds, bajara, wheat, etc. By contrast, very low level of agriculture productivity is confined to the tahsils belonging to drought prone areas having irregular rainfall, rugged topography and poor irrigation facilities. Inadequacy of water is main hurdle in agriculture productivity. For the present investigation tahsilwise secondary data has been collected from socio-economic review and District Statistical Abstract. The data collected has been processed and method of yield co-efficient method has been employed to find out the levels agriculture productivity. The result are shown in tabular and from and are also depicted by choropleth method on map. Hence, in present paper an attempt has been made to assess the regional disparities in levels of agriculture productivity in Solapur District of Maharashtra.
