Krishnapatnam Port region of Nellore emerging as edible oils hub

The Krishnapatnam Port region in the Nellore district is slowly emerging as a hub for edible oil refineries with eight firms setting up refineries at Pantapalem in Muthukur mandal, close to the port. Six more companies have expressed interest to set up their plants near the port.

The port has laid a pipeline to the area where the units are located, to unload crude palm oil directly from the ships. Proximity of the port to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and availability of land in the area has been attracting industrialists to set up their units in the region.

Gemini Edible Oils, Saraiwala Industries Pvt Ltd, Krishnapatnam Oil and Fats Pvt Ltd, Emami Biotech Pvt Ltd and South India Fats and Oils Pvt Ltd have started operations among eight units established already at Pantapalem. The other three units are expected to start operations this year.

A power crisis in energy-starved India that has stalled the construction of thermal plants doesn’t strike one immediately as a piece of good news.

But for activists and many villagers in areas where power plants are slated to be built, it’s a silver lining.

In Nellore on the southeastern coast of India, a port was built four years ago that could draw in coal. More than two dozen large plants were then proposed. And the electricity produced could power the state, Andhra Pradesh, which has crippling blackouts that can last several hours, if not days, in some areas.

Today, however, most of the plants have dim prospects. Cows graze placidly on land that had been bought by power companies to build plants. Day laborers painstakingly hack trees to clear the land. There’s no rush. The power plants are missing their most important ingredient – coal. That’s because of an insufficient domestic supply of the black rock. And imported coal has become unviable after India’s biggest supplier, Indonesia, recently doubled coal prices.

“So far nothing has been commissioned,” said Dinesh Kumar, a senior energy department official. He added that only a handful of the power plants are likely to get built.

But the stalled work brings relief for activists and villagers who were alarmed at the rapid pace at which power plants had been approved in Nellore.

“Sri Potti Sriramulu Nellore district is fast becoming the state’s dumping yard for intensely polluting coal-based thermal plants,” states a January report from the Human Rights Forum in Andhra Pradesh. “The appraisal bodies have been clearing these projects one-by-one, without looking at the compound impact of all these projects taken together.”

The group said the projects together would have contaminated the surroundings with chemicals, and 2,700 tons of sulfur and 130,000 tons of toxic ash would have been spewed into the environment.

Local officials say that the estimated 25,000 megawatts of power that would have been generated if all the planned plants were built is unlikely. Power plants being built in the next three years will have a combined capacity of 15,000 megawatts, according to data provided by government officials.

A research group that lobbies for sustainable and equitable development says that environmental clearances are being granted at a rate which is more than six times the actual installation of plants in India.

Like other sectors, the shortage of power reflects a bungled approach to industrial development in India.

“We don’t have clear-cut legislations in India like the Clean Air Act in the U.S.,” said Vijay Kumar, a doctor in Nellore who was involved in the protests against the plants. He said that he treats about two people every day who have respiratory infections, many who had worked in an old local thermal plant.

A short distance from one of the power plants in Nellore, at a tribal hamlet of the Yanadis, a marginalized community, villagers are apprehensive about the potential pollution of the plant. One fisherman said that the ongoing construction had reduced his catch of fish at the close-by Buckingham Canal. In surrounding villages, residents say they don’t see any benefit from the emerging plants. Some point out that their education and skill levels are unlikely to get them jobs at the plants.

Luckily for those opposed to the plants, it doesn’t look like the emerging plants will be fueled anytime soon. Coal production is increasing at an average of 5 percent a year while power plant capacity is growing between 10 and 15 percent. The irony is that India has one of the world’s largest reserves of coal but state-owned Coal India, which controls 80 percent of production, isn’t digging fast enough. That hasn’t stopped it from winning a “company of the year award”.

To facilitate easy identification of government and private lands in villages, the district administration has prepared village maps in colour, for 1,201 villages in SPSR Nellore district.

To facilitate easy identification of government and private lands in villages, the district administration has prepared village maps in colour, for 1,201 villages in SPSR Nellore district. The exercise was taken up at the instance of joint collector Saurabh Gaur using computers for a graphic description of the villages with specific colours.

For instance, yellow indicates Co-operative Joint Farmers’ Society (CJFS) lands, green is the indicator for forest lands, blue for water bodies, brown for assigned lands and red for government lands.

Survey numbers are also mentioned with border markings for the benefit of the registration wing.

Speaking to this newspaper, Mr Saurabh Gaur said that the 6 ft x 4 ft size village maps will be available at Mee Seva counters for a nominal fee.

He reminded that one had to make several rounds of revenue offices to obtain such maps in the past and their initiative put an end to such ordeals.

He said that the maps will help them during reviews and are also useful to prepare for court cases related to land disputes. He said that computerisation of day-to-day transactions pertaining to fair price shops has already started, to ensure transparency in operations.

The dealer has to enter the transaction after the sale and submit a daily report with all details to the Civil Supplies wing for computerisation.

“This will enable us to check the stock position and release commodities accordingly, for the following month. Details will be made available for audit by people to detect irregularities by dealers. In some cases, dealers are recording transactions without supplying commodities to ration cardholders and the data will help consumers expose the fraud,” Mr Saurabh Gaur said.

The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India has initiated a school-based screening program for diabetes on pilot basis in six Districts namely Nainital (Uttarakhand), Theni (Tamil Nadu), Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), Dibrugarh (Assam), Bhilwara (Rajasthan), Ratlam (Madhya Pradesh). Fund to each district has been released for the purpose. The screening is primarily focused on school children of 1st to 10th standards in the age group of 5 to 15 years. The screening programme is in progress in the above cited 6 Districts.

The School Health Programme (SHP) under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) as the public sector programme specifically focused on school going children and adolescents in the 6-18 years age group enrolled in Government and Government aided schools is already in place.

The SHP was launched to address the health needs of school going children. The Program at the National level has been developed to provide uniformity / guidance in implementation of operational framework for State initiatives. The National School Health Programme includes biannual health service provision through screening, health care and referral for disease, deficiency and disability. The main focus is to address the health needs of children, both physical and mental, and in addition, it provides for nutrition interventions, physical activities and counselling. Identified children, who require further service support, are connected with secondary and tertiary facilities within Public Health Infrastructure. Weekly supervised provisions of Iron-Folic acid tablets and biannual deworming is included.

Several studies have contributed to overwhelming evidence that indicates the increase in type 2 diabetes amongst children and adolescents. Major risk factors of diabetes are un-healthy diet, obesity and lack of physical exercise.

This information was given in written reply by the Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad in Rajya Sabha.

Rajya Sabha member and Congress candidate for the Nellore Parliament seat T. Subbarami Reddy has been planning to organise a convention at national-level to mobilise investments for industries in Nellore district soon after elections.

He disclosed this while speaking to media persons here on Tuesday. He said that the idea behind the convention was to enhance industrialisation to generate employment for the youth of the district. He also indicated his plans to establish a cricket stadium in Nellore town.

Referring to a host of canals passing through Nellore, he said that he would seek central government help to modernise these. Mr Reddy participated in road shows along with Union minister of state for human resources D. Purandareswari in Nellore two town areas and Nellore rural constituency on Tuesday.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms Purandareswari dwelt at length on the commitment and ability of Mr Subbarami Reddy to achieve goals related to development. “He developed Visakhapatnam in all respects and will do the same for Nellore. He is capable of getting any work done, either at the state or at the Centre,” she assured, appealing to people to elect him.

She took a dig at former MP and YSR nominee for the Nellore Lok Sabha seat Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy for not raising any issue on the development of Nellore in the Lok Sabha.

Both Ms Purandareswari and Mr Subbarami Reddy participated in meetings organised by minorities and Yadavas in two different locations during their campaign on Tuesday.

Despite his defeat in the recent byelection for the Nellore Parliament seat, Rajya Sabha member, Dr T. Subbarami Reddy, is going to fulfil the promises he made during the electioneering with respect to deve-lopment of Nellore city.

He will also take up the construction of a 900-seat capacity AC auditorium and shelters in two government hospitals in Nellore town for aides of patients with his own funds to the extent of Rs.12 crore. TSR Kala Parishad general secretary Dodla Varada Reddy disclosed this during a press conference at TSR’s office here on Tuesday.

He said that the Kasthuri Devi Vidyalayam committee had, in principle, agreed to provide one acre for the auditorium. According to Mr Varada Reddy, the auditorium will be handed over to the committee after construction. The committee will manage the auditorium and revenue from the facility will also go to them. The TSR Kala Parishad requested the committee to extend concession on tariff to artists holding cultural programmes.

Approval from the Medi-cal and Health Infrastru-cture Corporation is awaited to take up the construction of shelters at DSR government headquarters hospital and Jubilee maternity hospital in Nellore. These shelters are meant for the aides of patients.

With respect to Mr Subbarami Reddy’s promise to mobilise funds for the Rs.458 crore estimated underground drainage scheme for the Nellore civic body, Mr Reddy has been planning to mobilise funds from the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewable Mission. Although JNNURM takes up such projects in cities with a population of 10 lakh, a request is being made to include Nellore as a special case.

Mr Varada Reddy said, “JNNURM will provide 80 per cent of the project cost and the rest has to borne by the civic body. To provide sanitation and drinking water facilities in 138 slum areas in Nellore, a pilot project under Rajiv Awaas Yojana is being planned at an estimated cost of Rs.60 crore,” Mr Reddy said.

He said that the proposal related to an airport for Nellore was being taken up with the Civil Aviation Department and is likely to be under BOT basis. Mr Subbarami Reddy is also keen on transferring the Nellore-Mumbai state highway to the National High-ways wing to lay a four lane highway, he added.

HYDERABAD, JULY 8:
The availability of rice in Andhra Pradesh is set to go up next month.

Nellore fine rice is expected to reach the market in August, increasing the general availability of rice.

Ms Minnie Mathew, State Chief Secretary, informed the Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, of this development at a high-level review meeting on price control here on Saturday.

Except in the case of super fine rice and Bengal gram, the rates of dals, vegetables and oils were either stable or showing a slightly decreasing trend compared to the previous week, she said.

HELP FARMERS

The Chief Minister directed the civil supplies department to coordinate with rice millers and to ensure better availability of fine rice stock in Rythu Bazaars at reasonable rates.

Reviewing the rainfall situation amid a delayed monsoon, Mr Reddy asked his ministers to take alternative measures to mitigate the problems of farmers, drinking water scarcity etc.

The officials said delay in the monsoons had occurred even in previous years and that the IMD was forecasting good rains in the coming days. Inflows into the Tungabhadra and Godavari had just started, the officials told the Chief Minister.

BIO-DIVERSITY MEET

The Chief Secretary said in the meeting that Rs125 crore has been released for the beautification of Hyderabad City in time for the ensuing International Bio-Diversity Conference to be held in October.

The conference is expected to see around 8,000 delegates from 193 countries.

The Chief Minister directed the officials to speed up work on the proposed COP-II plaque, Museum, Park and the possibility of establishment of a world class aquarium promised by the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, according to a press release.

The Nellore civic body is going to be the first in the state and second in the country to have its own petrol bunk to address the fuel needs of its fleet of 96 vehicles. Surat in Gujarat is the first municipality in the country to have its own petrol bunk.

The outlet for the Nellore Municipal Corporation was set up by the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited and is ready for inauguration. Corporation authorities are waiting for the dates of Nellore rural and town legislators as well as newly elected Nellore MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy to attend the inaugural function.

Dr T.S.R. Anjaneyulu, commissioner of Nellore municipal corporation, said that they will save a minimum of Rs.2 lakh per month with this petrol outlet. The idea to have a fuel outlet for the civic body was conceived, following pilferage and private petrol bunks’ refusal to wait for payment of dues, he added.

Incidentally, the civic body did not spend any money and the BPCL itself invested Rs.7 lakh for the facility. Corporation vehicles involved in the transportation of garbage among other activities, need 40,000 litres of diesel per month and the direct saving will be 72 paise (commission per litre) on every litre.

Additional savings for the corporation is that the movement of vehicles is being monitored through the vehicle tracking system.

All vehicles have been fitted with global positioning system (GPS) devices to improve overall efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and accountability in all their logistic operations.

Mr Anjaneyulu claimed that they are the first to introduce the transport monitoring system (TMS) with GPS technology.

“TMS gives the live location of the vehicle, and the system will give an alert if a vehicle stops for more than a given time or deviates from defined routes, besides generating start/stop reports and truck summary with kilometres travelled,” Mr Anjaneyulu noted.

Panel visitsRamayapatnam port site

Quote:
ONGOLE: A seven-member high power committee, led by Paradeep Port Trust chairman C Jagannadha Rao, visited the site of port� proposed at Ramayapatnam in Ulavapadu mandal of Prakasam district on Saturday.
District collector Kantilal Dande made a Powerpoint presentation on the port project to the committee and submitted a report to it.
Later, the committee visited the seashore of Ramayapatnam and interacted with villagers. The Centre has proposed to construct three ports in Andhra Pradesh. The proposed ports are at Nakkapalli near Vizag, Durgarajupatnam near Nellore and Ramayapatnam near Ulavapadu.
source:http://ibnlive.in.com/news/panel-vis...94-60-114.html.

As per the news from the link provided by you says,
while the location for the new port in Andhra Pradesh, amongst the three sites suggested by State Government, will be decided by August 31.

Hoping these are 3 sites considered from the state to establish new port from the link provided above.

The proposed ports are at

1)Nakkapalli near Vizag,
2)Durgarajupatnam near Nellore
3)Ramayapatnam near Ulavapadu

I think AP govt may go with Option 2. If that's not then option 3.


so what do other ppl in this forum think, which one will AP govt go with.

Government should be careful in choosing Nellore and select it only after detailed marine borehole investigations. The sea bed in the nearby Reliance Krishnapatnam Ultra Mega Power Plant consisted of very soft soil for more than 25 m and they could not design construction of breakwaters for seawater intake and coal jetty.

Navy has already taken objection to Nakkapalli.

Hopefully a decision will be taken after due diligence and comparison of all alternatives.

Ulavapadu in Prakasham district is the most likely site since there are no other ports in that district. Moreover if Durgarajupatnam might have problems wrt Krishnapatnam port.

Post Krishnapatnam port sets record in coal discharge

Hyderabad Aug 8:

The Krishnapatnam port in Andhra Pradesh set a new record in the Indian ports sector by discharging 1.22 lakh tonnes of coal in 24 hours using the conventional unloading system.
MV Cohiba, carrying 1.61 lakh tonnes of coal for JSW Steel Ltd, berthed at the port at 5.30 a.m on August 6.
he port had earlier discharged 1.06 lakh tonnes of steam coal in July last year.

The Krishnapatnam Port Container Terminal, the container business arm of the port, is gearing up to handle new scheduled calls beginning this month. The terminal, last month, added four gantry cranes of Keppel Fels and new mini-bagging machines, installed new hopper and conveyor systems in warehouses and built new sidings to handle the bulk cargo at the port, a company statement said.

The Krishnapatnam port, developed and operated by the $5-billion Navayuga Group, is executing a Rs 4,000-crore phase-II development programme.
The port, which has five multi-purpose berths with a draft of about 15 million tonnes (mt), handles a little over 16 mt, as against the phase-I installed capacity of 25 mt.

The district administration is all set to launch two new schemes on the occasion of Independence Day on Wednesday. One of the schemes, Pragna is meant to provide computers with Internet connection to welfare hostels in association with industrial houses in the district. Industries have supplied two computers each to 100 hostels in the district and Internet connections are being given to the hostels now.

Hostels having students studying classes VIII to X have been selected for the Pragna scheme. The idea behind is to provide Internet exposure to hostel students. The other scheme christened as e-Vani is intended to keep white ration cardholders informed of the availability of rice and kerosene in the 1,600-odd Fair Price shops across the district.

Cell phone numbers of 20 cardholders under each ration shop limits have been collected to inform them on the availability of stock through voice messages as soon as the stock reaches the fair price shop from the mandal-level stock points. The exercise is meant to curb the movement of commodities allotted for white ration cardholders from reaching the open market.

Speaking to this newspaper, district collector B. Sreedhar said that officials manning the mandal-level stock points will send information on transportation of essential commodities to ration shops to a server soon after the stock is lifted from the godown. The server, in turn, will generate voice messages and transmit these to ration cardholders, he added.

Referring to the Pragna scheme, he said that they had already supplied computers to select hostels and Internet connections were being given to them now. He said that finance minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy will inaugurate the programme at a welfare hostel in Nellore town on Wednesday.

The cultivation of emu birds for their eggs, chicks, mutton and oil has reported a steady increase in different parts of Nellore district, ever since its farming began in 2006.

Now, the Nellore District Emu Farmers’ Association (NDEFA) has got as many as 25 members, who continue farming emu considering the good returns. The population of emu birds in the district has risen to 3,500 with farmers and traders coming here regularly from Maharashtra, Orissa, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka for its products.

The attractive part of emu cultivation is that all parts of the bird fetch a price for farmers, which starts at egg stage. An emu egg costs Rs.1,500. The bird lays 15 to 20 eggs once every 18 months throughout its 40-year lifespan.

NDEFA secretary D. Prabhakar Reddy says that the emu mutton is recommended as healthy food since it has zero cholesterol and high protein and its oil has medicinal values effective even for paralytics. Emu mutton is sold at Rs.350 per kg while a chick above 3 months fetches Rs.5,000.

An adult emu bird weighs about 40 kg with four to five kg oil likely to be extracted from each bird. The oil has high demand as it has medicinal and therapeutic values.

At his farm at Ramapuram village in Kodavalur mandal, Mr. Prabhakar Reddy raises nearly 400 emu birds. “The demand is slowly increasing. We are getting enough returns. There is demand now from other States too for all emu products here,” he says.

A pair of adult emu birds brings the farmers nearly Rs.50,000 in the present market. As cutting facilities are not available, the farmers arrange it themselves to meet the local demand for emu mutton.

At the farm, an adult emu bird is given one kilo feed everyday. The emu feed consists of a mixture of maize corn, cotton seed, soya and so on.
