the shortfall of 9 MGD watera committee of three executive engineers was constituted The committee in its report has suggested that 45 new tubewells need to be installed These 45 tubewells are expected to compensate for the 9 MGD water that Chandigarh will have to give to Panchkula and Chandimandir Sites for 34 tubewells have been identified at places where no permission would be required from the office of Chief Architect Officials claim that getting permission from the Chief Architect is a long-drawn process and by identifying such sites this could be avoided Of the 34 sites13 each

no other source of generating water apart from the tubewells The southern sectors of the city are not very conducive for installation of tubewells and more of these get defunct in these sectors The

significantly greater risk of engaging in a variety of anti-social behaviours such as stalking according to a study The results revealed that men whose heart rate was one standard deviation below the mean or lower had nearly three times the odds of having engaged in stalking as compared with all other participants suggesting that low resting heart rate is associated with increased prevalence of stalking behaviour ALSO READ |Why women are better at multitasking thanmen Based on arousal theory those with low levels of arousal are less fearful more likely to seek opportunities to pursue victims to feel stimulated and are more likely to exhibit impulsive behaviours the researchers said “Our findings suggest that while heart rate is generally found to be associated with aggression and anti-social behaviour across the sexes these associations may be sex specific when discussing stalking perpetration” said Danielle Boisvert from Sam Houston State University in Texas US Stalking which has been linked to aggression and violent offending is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group towards another person It can lead to significant psychological social and economic effects for victims When disaggregated by sex the heart rate-stalking relationship was found to be significant for males but not for females the researchers said in the paper detailed in the Journal
