Mannachanallur rice mills struggle to sustain operation due to drought

Quote:
Declining paddy arrivals due to the drought conditions has caused a perceptible downslide in milling activities in Mannachanallur town that is famous for its Ponni variety of rice.

Most of the about 40 mills in the town witnessed manufacturing activities for only three to four months in a year during 2015 and 2016. Even to ensure this, the mills, according to local sources, were constrained to purchase paddy from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

The predicament of the member units of Mannachanallur Rice Mill Owners’ Association is not getting any better this year. Though the rice mills in the town have embraced modernisation over the last decade, the competition they face from the millers in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh is rather tough, members said.

Top quality paddy varieties produced in these States are procured by the mills there, and only the second quality is brought here for processing. The mills in the other States are also better placed in terms of operating efficiency.

With capacities to process 50 to 60 tonnes a day, the mills are able to produce and sell the rice at lower prices when compared to the millers in Mannachanallur where the capacities of the manufacturing units have capacities are much lower in the range of 10 to 15 tonnes.

The industry is also labour-intensive, particularly in conventional rice mills where cleaning, drying, grading and polishing activities are carried out manually. Manpower requirement is rather high since the overall operation in rice milling unit encompass cleaning to remove impurities; separation of small stones from paddy; parboiling to improve nutritional quality; husk removal; husk aspiration; paddy separation; whitening by removal of bran layer; polishing the exterior of milled kernel; length grading of broken and full rice; and finally packaging it.

Providing impetus to handloom weavers

Quote:
At a time when the demand for handloom textiles is on the decline, the Tamil Nadu handloom textiles department has launched a 15-day exhibition to provide impetus to the ailing industry.

State minister for tourism Vellamandi N Natarajan inaugurated the exhibition at GVK Mini Hall at Woraiyur on Saturday.

The handloom industry took a beating as weavers were unable to cope with the emerging trends in the garments industry. "The preference for handloom textiles is declining as people find items made in the power loom more attractive. The introduction of GST has also increased the price of handloom textiles," said PV Ramasamy, a weaver from Karur.

Thathaingarpettai on the outskirts of Trichy was once famous for its hand-woven dhotis. However, the introduction of power loom ruined the sector as weavers found it difficult to compete with the sheer volume produced by the machines.

"Former chief minister MGR was fond of dhotis from Thathaingarpettai. Now, there are around 75 weavers in our area who have continued with the business. Over 400 weavers have abandoned the business. The invasion of power loom caused a setback for us because they can produce items in large numbers, said Ravi from T Pettai.

A total of 25 stalls of various handloom textile weavers from Karur, Kancheepuram, Karur, Nagercoil, Salem and a few other areas have been set up at the exhibition. There is also a discount of 20 % on all the products.

The textiles department has set a sales target of Rs 25 lakhs for the exhibition.

However, not all is lost for the industry as it still has its customer base who feel comfortable in wearing handloom garments. "Our business is moving on because of a set of customers whose preference is handloom garments. They prefer it because of the quality. If we are able to bring it to the larger market, the industry can be revived," said S Saravanan, of Thuraiyur in Trichy.

Collector promises support for setting up trade centre

Seven-day special camp for sanction of loans by TIIC inaugurated

The district administration would extend all necessary support for establishing a trade centre in the city, said Collector K. Rajamani here on Monday.

Establishing a trade centre in the city for hosting conventions, trade fairs and other industrial events has been long pending demand.

The plea was reiterated by the secretary of the Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (TIDITSSIA), S. Punniyamoorthy, during the inaugural of the seven-day long special camp for sanction of loans by the Tamil Nadu Industrial Investment Corporation (TIIC) here on Monday.
Although the government has assured to extend 50% subsidy for establishing a trade centre in the city, the cost of private lands was prohibitively high, Mr. Punniyamoorthy said.

“We inspected a few private sites but the cost was high. Hence we have sought the allotment of a piece of government land at Panchapur for establishing the facility,” Mr. Punniyamoorthy said.

Responding to the plea, Mr. Rajamani, who inaugurated the camp, said the district administration would stand by TIDITSSIA in its efforts to establish the trade centre. He urged the association not to just stop with mooting the proposal, but also to follow it up with a proper plan of action. “You have a big role to play in promoting industrial development in the district,” he said.

He called for joint and coordinated efforts by the stakeholders and government agencies to foster industrial growth in the district. “We are a largely agrarian district. But in order to achieve the expected development on the industrial front, we have to constantly review and examine our plans and actions,” he said.

The Collector assured steps to ensure that the proposed industrial park of SIDCO at Manapparai turned a reality as 1,000 acres of land has already been acquired.

Echoing Mr.Punniyamoorthy’s suggestion, Mr. Rajamani called upon the TIIC to simplify procedures for sanction of credit and ensure transparency in its operations. “I understand you are planning to advance Rs. 1,800 crore of credit during the current year. Ensure expeditious clearance to help entrepreneurs,” he said.

K. Srinivasan, Deputy General Manager, TIIC, said the corporation was a model to most other state financial corporations in the country. “TIIC offers a range of schemes to meet the requirements of entrepreneurs. We are willing to fund viable projects,” he said. V. Mathiazhagan, Senior Regional Manager, TIIC, Tiruchi, said the Corporation, since its establishment in 1949, had extended financial support to thousands of industrial units in the state.

J. Daniel Chellappa, Senior Scientist, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), gave an overview of water purification technologies developed by BARC, and called upon entrepreneurs to come forward to manufacture low cost water purifiers using the membranes developed by it. Models of water purifiers using technology developed by BARC were displayed.

TIIC officials made a presentation of various schemes offered by TIIC and said its interest rates have been made cheaper than banks and financial institutions with the 3% interest subvention offered by the State government.

Collector promises land for trade centre

Collector K. Rajamani on Wednesday said five acres of land would be identified soon to set up a trade centre in Tiruchi.

Inaugurating a two-day State level seminar on “Entrepreneurial Opportunities for Women and Youth”, organised by the Women Entrepreneurs Association of Tamil Nadu and the Department of Women’s Studies of Bhrathidasan university, Mr. Rajamani said he had received various representations from trade bodies and industrial forums to set up a trade centre in Tiruchi. It was stated that it would require at least five acres of land. It could be either from the non-government organisation or from the government side. He would take all out efforts to transform the dream into a reality.

Similarly, it had been brought to his knowledge that about 1,000 acres of land at SIPCOT complex at Manapparai had not been utilised for so long. He would soon convene a meeting of all stakeholders to utilise the available resources at SIPCOT site, he added.

He said that Tiruchi was well-connected by road, rail and air. The city and nearby areas had excellent infrastructure to make it a thriving industrial belt. However, the available opportunities were not fully utilised.

C. Anandaramakrishnan, Director, Indian Institute of Food Processing and Technology, Thanjavur, Gopinath Ganapathy, Syndicate Member, N. Manimekalai, Head, Department of Women’s Studies, Bharathidasan University and others spoke.

Earlier, Mr. Rajamani gave away the ‘Best Women Entrepreneur’ award to eight persons.

Ancillary units should expand business activities--11 out of 12 Demands made by BHELSIA Fulfilled by CG

Image

Quote:
Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday called upon the ancillary units of BHEL to diversify and expand their business activities in various areas and supply products without remaining dependent on the strength of the public sector giant.

Speaking at a function organised by the BHEL Small and Medium Industries Association (BHELSIA) and the BJP Industrial Cell here, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman said the Central government would extend necessary support to the ancillary units as they had elevated their capabilities despite facing stiff hurdles. The support to the units was also in the wake of the Prime Minister’s clarion call of ‘Make in India’.

The Central government had settled 11 out of the 12 demands put forth by the BHELSIA on various issues, she said assuring that the transparency clause demand would also be looked into. She would also strive for fair price and fair trade methodology, the Minister said.

Praising the Tiruchi based ancillary units for their self-confidence, capability and skill development, the Minister said such a comprehensive and cohesive unit could not be found anywhere in the country.


Ancillary units should think of expanding their business and stand on their own legs without remaining dependent on the strength of BHEL, she said.

The Minister said the growth of several European countries were not good adding that they were surprised over the growth achieved by India despite facing a slew of problems including rising population.

The Central government would explore the possibility of bringing in funds through other means for establishing the common service facility at BHEL, Tiruchi. The ancillary units could make use of this as well as those available outside to expand their business activity.

Recover from slump

S. Ashok Sundaresan, president, BHELSIA, thanked the Minister for extending necessary assistance in sorting out policy issues pertaining to BHEL ancillary units thereby helping the units recover from the slump and make profits now.

The BHELSIA had the required skill and talents even to manufacture rail coaches, he said appealing to the Minister to make necessary arrangements in this regard, Mr. Ashok Sundaresan said. Members of the BHELSIA and those of the Bharatiya Janata Party participated in the programme.

Call to make use of BARC technologies for producing low cost water purifiers

Quote:
The Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) has developed technologies for water treatment and purification at low cost and is willing to offer the same to entrepreneurs willing to take up ventures in producing water treatment systems.

This was the crux of the presentations made by scientists from BARC at a meet on ‘Business opportunities in water industry using BARC technology,’ organised jointly by the Entrepreneurship Development and Innovation Institute, BARC and the Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association here on Thursday. Inaugurating the meet, K.Rajamani, Collector, underlined the efforts being made to improve infrastructure of the city. He said that the district administration would display the low cost water purification technology developed by BARC at the Collector’s Office campus so as to raise awareness.

Providing an overview of water purification technologies developed by BARC, J.Daniel Chellappa, Senior Scientist, BARC, Chennai, said the unique membrane based technologies have the potential for effective decontamination of water in rural and urban sectors to provide safe drinking water.

“The membrane is the most important component in water purification systems and they are mostly imported and hence costly. We have developed membranes for various purposes. Using these, water purifiers can be made at low cost,” he said.

BARC has developed different types of water purifiers which can be connected to water pipelines, used as table top units and can be operated without electricity. They are effective in removing impurities, hardness, alkalinity and salinity. It also has developed reverse osmosis membrane for brackish water desalination. The water purification models, he said, require very little maintenance.

Entrepreneurs could produce water purifying units using the technologies at affordable costs, he said. A team of scientists from BARC briefed prospective entrepreneurs on the technologies available. N.Kanagasabapathy, president, TIDITSSIA, Thomas Rex Vaz of EDII, Chennai, and S.Gopalakrishnan, Joint Secretary, TIDITSSIA, spoke.
