NRCB signs MoU with Kongunadu College of Engineering

The National Research Centre for Banana (NRCB) in Tiruchi has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Kongunadu College of Engineering and Technology (KNCET), a private engineering college located at the banana-growing belt of Thottiyam in the district, to take up research projects to promote mechanisation in banana cultivation.

With India being the largest producer of banana with a production of 30 million tonnes, the NRCB has been taking various initiatives to promote banana cultivation and trade covering the entire gamut of banana supply chain in India starting from farm level production to post-harvest value addition and export.

However, India’s share in the world trade in banana is negligible. The signing of the MoU was part of the centre’s attempts to promote better cultivation practices in banana.

The agreement focuses on developing bio-sensors and imaging technology for pest detection, portable cable car conveyor system for the transportation of harvested bunches and to promote green technology through utilisation of solar power and other fields. The agreement also supports enlisting the students for internship and post graduate research programmes at NRCB.

According to scientists at NRCB, the college students with technical inputs from the centre have already developed a prototype of a conveyor system to transport harvested banana bunches in the field. However, it required certain improvements which would be taken up under the initiative.

Similarly, research will be taken up on bringing about certain improvements in solar dryers besides developing implements for paring banana suckers and other cultivation processes.

S. Uma, Director, NRCB, and PSK R. Periyasamy, Chairman, KNCET, signed the agreement on Wednesday. “We hope that the outcome of research initiatives will enhance farmers’ income,” Dr.Uma said.

Speaking on the occasion, Ezhilan, Chief Executive Officer, Greeners Agro Products India Pvt Ltd., elaborated on the way forward in export of banana using mechanisation in handling with the development of cable car conveyor, scientific post-harvest methods and packaging.

BHEL's Trichy Ancillary Units seek rehabilitation package from lenders


Quote:
Engineering ancillary units around the Bharat Heavy Electricals factory in Trichy -beset by mounting losses and debt -are seeking a rehabilitation package from lenders that will allow them to bid for their share of orders from the public sector unit that is seeing a steady rise in business in recent months.

n a memorandum to the finance ministry, seen by ET, the small units have requested a cluster rehabilitation programme.

It entails moratorium on principal repayment on term loans for 18 months, additional working capital for executing orders, and stalling loan recovery action by the banks.

"What we need is a helping hand from the banks. Just as the situation brightens up, we are hoping we will not be curtailed by their actions," said Ashok Sundaresan S, president of BHEL Small and Medium Enterprises Association, Trichy .


Nearly all of the 500 units clustered around the Trichy plant are small-scale units, taking orders of welding, machining, fabrication and other engineering work for over four decades. Several units have been declared sick and about a hundred are in danger of being declared as "non-performing".

However, the improved order book posi tion for BHEL announced by its managing director Atul Sobti at the company's annual general meeting last week has buoyed the spirits of the beleaguered ancillaries who expect a turnaround in their fortunes as well. Sobti said BHEL ended fiscal 2016-17 with an enhanced order book of Rs 1.05 lakh crore for execution in the current fiscal and beyond

MY STARTUP IDEA: OfBusiness and FlexiLoans founders on their eureka moment

Quote:
In this column, we bring you the stories behind how startup founders got their business idea, and the things, events, and actions that eventually led them to their big eureka moment.

This time, we feature the founder two entrepreneurs working with SMEs. One started an e-commerce and financing platform, while the other runs a lending platform.

'I found small businesses were underserved': Ruchi Kalra
The idea: OfBusiness, an online e-commerce and financing platform for SMEs
Eureka moment: Ruchi Kalra's nine years at McKinsey gave her a deep insight into the financial technology space. She used to interact with banks and found that SMEs were important, yet underserved. "I wanted to do something related to manufacturing, which was core to India's growth. That was also the time I was expecting, so I wanted to start something new at the same time."

Ruchi Kalra, OfBusiness
Early days: A lot of people tried to dissuade her, but she quit her job along with six of her friends in the manufacturing and fintech spaces and started OfBusiness in 2016. They started a platform for procurement of raw materials, and set up two hubs - in Trichy and Faridabad - to interact with SME clusters.

Now: They have started providing working capital to SMEs. The venture has received $16 million in funding from Matrix and Zodius Capital, and has around 2,000 SMEs on the platform. It is planning to add more services.
