New scheme to double water supply; modern slaughterhouse and gasified crematorium in Namakkal

Also, a new solid waste management system - first of its kind in TN

http://www.hindu.com/2011/01/17/stor...1754390300.htm

The Rs. 11 crore third new water supply expansion project that would be launched by Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin on Tuesday would double the water supply to residents of the municipal limit, says it's Chairman R. Selvaraj.

The two existing water schemes supply around 40 lakh litres a day to the town with a population of nearly 60,000 people, at an average of 70 litres per head.

Output

The third one would increase the total output to about 83 lakh litres and substantially increase the per head supply to 135 litres, Selvaraj told The Hindu.

According to the Chairman it would also ensure water distribution on a daily basis compared to the present periodicity of once in three days.

The project is executed through the Urban Integrated Development of Small and Medium Towns scheme under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission.

Source

The project would draw water from its source at Cauvery River in Mohanur using six infiltration wells to a ‘collaboration well' with a capacity of 70 lakh liters, where it would be treated.

The potable water would then be distributed to the six new overhead water tanks at Pathi Nagar, Old Municipality building, Mullai Nagar, Trichy Road, Kottai Road and Tirunagar that have a total capacity of 12 lakh litres, in addition to the existing five tanks.

He said that the project would be functional from Tuesday and expressed confidence that it would meet the water demands of the town for the next 25 years.

The Rs. 4 crore solid waste management project at the Kosavanpatti compost yard to make the town a cleaner and eco-friendly place would also be inaugurated on that day.

Municipal Commissioner in-charge and Municipal Engineer G. Balachandran stated that this state-of-the-art project is the first of its kind in the State, with a capacity to treat the town's daily garbage of more than 25 metric tons in less than 10 hours.

Open air method

Degradable garbage would be segregated from the non-degradable matter and then treated using open air method where it would be dried and shifted to vermin compost pits, and later distributed to farmers as natural manure.

Expansion

The engineer said that there is ample space to expand it based on the increasing demand, he added.

Another important project that would be launched by the Mr. Stalin is a Rs. 50 lakh modern slaughter house with the latest and hygienic garbage dispensing mechanism through the Under Ground Drainage system.

Goats

Nearly 200 goats can be slaughtered here every day, which is at least twice the capacity of the present manual slaughter house.

Mr. Stalin would also launch the district's first gasified crematorium at an estimate Rs. 45 lakh at the Senthamangalam crematorium.

The above mentioned projects have been planned to support the municipal limit expansion when the town's population would increase to about 1.1 lakh people, Balachandran added.

Foundation stone laid for bypass road at Rasipuram

http://www.hindu.com/2011/02/19/stor...1952490500.htm

Minister of Highways and Minor Ports Vellakoil M.P. Saminathan laid the foundation stone for a bypass road at Rasipuram for a stretch of 13.67 kilometres from Kakaveri to Ponkurichi on Thursday.

Addressing the gathering after launching the works, the Minister said that the first phase for a stretch of 6 km at an estimate Rs. 18 crore, from the Highways Department, would be carried out this year.

Allocation for the remaining distance of 7.67 kilometres would be made in the following year, he added.

Mr. Saminathan noted that an average daily movement of 22,626 Passenger Car Unit (PCU) was recorded in Rasipuram and added that this heavy density added to the traffic congestion in the town that has a large number of industries and educational institutions.

The first phase from Chandrasekarapuram to Anaipalayam is expected to be completed in nine months, he said.

Tar road would be laid for a width of seven metres in the two-lane road while the total road width would have an additional five metres (vacant space), giving room for future road-widening works, he added.

According to him, the highways department has spent Rs. 4.1 crore to procure 30.46 hectares of land from private parties for the bypass works, while 5.09 hectares of land have been obtained from the revenue department.

The bypass would run through 13 small bridges and eight water ways. The Minister said that roads laid using the latest technology and raw materials such as quarry dust have the capacity to bear weight up to 50 tonnes.

Efforts taken by the State government to strengthen the road and water ways and carrying out maintenance works has attracted investments, he said. A ring road in Namakkal town to put an end to traffic congestion would soon begin, Mr. Saminathan added.

Atlast Mohanur Vangal Railway Bridge is finished.

மோகனூர்: நாமக்கல்-கரூர் மாவட்டத்தை இணைக்கும் காவிரி ஆற்றில், குறுக்கே ரயில்வே பாதைக்காக 36.37 கோடி ரூபாய் மதிப்பில் மேற்கொள்ளப்பட்டுள்ள மெகா பாலம் அமைக்கும் பணி நிறைவு பெற்றது. ஜல்லி கொட்டி, தண்டவாளம் அமைக்கும் பணி மட்டுமே நிலுவை உள்ளது. அப்பணிகளும் இரண்டு மாதத்தில் நிறைவு பெறும் என, எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது.

நாமக்கல் பகுதி மக்களின் நீண்ட நாள் கோரிக்கையை ஏற்று, "சேலம்-கரூர் இடையே நாமக்கல் வழியாக, 85 கி.மீ., நீளத்துக்கு ரயில் பாதை அமைக்கப்படும்' என, ரயில்வே நிர்வாகம் அறிவித்தது. அதன்படி, 230 கோடி ரூபாய் நிதி ஒதுக்கப்பட்டு, 1998 முதல் சேலம்-கரூர் அகல ரயில் பாதைக்கான திட்டம் துவங்கி நடந்து வருகிறது.

இத்திட்டப்படி, அகல ரயில் பாதை அமைக்கும் பணி நாமக்கல், மோகனூர், ராசிபுரம் பகுதியில் 12 ஆண்டுகளாக நடக்கிறது. நாமக்கல் மாவட்டத்தில் பல்வேறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்கள் உள்ளன. உற்பத்தி பொருட்களை லாரி மூலம் சேலம் எடுத்து வந்து, அங்கிருந்து ரயில் மூலம் வெளிமாநிலங்களுக்கு ஏற்றுமதி செய்யப்பட்டு வருகிறது. அதனால், நாமக்கல் வழியாக ரயில் வசதியை ஏற்படுத்த கோழிப்பண்ணை, ஜவுளி, சேகோ, லாரி தொழிலில் ஈடுபட்டுள்ளவர்கள் எதிர்பார்த்துள்ளனர்.

நாமக்கல் மாவட்டம், மோகனூர், கரூர் மாவட்டம், வாங்கல் காவிரி ஆற்றின் இடையே இரு மாவட்டத்தையும் இணைக்கும் வகையில் ரயில்வே பாலம் அமைக்கும் பணி 2007 நவம்பரில் துவங்கப்பட்டது.

இரண்டாண்டு திட்டத்தில் 36.37 கோடி ரூபாய் மதிப்பில் துவங்கப்பட்ட இப்பணி, தற்போது நிறைவு பெற்றுள்ளது. 1.25 கி.மீ., தூரம் வரை அமைந்துள்ள இப்பாலத்துக்காக காவிரி ஆற்றின் குறுக்கே 49 பில்லர்கள் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. 100க்கும் மேற்பட்ட தொழிலாளர்கள் இரவு பகலாக "ஷிப்ட்' முறையில் பணிபுரிந்து லேட்டஸ்ட் டெக்னாலஜி முறையில் பாலத்தை அமைத்துள்ளனர்.

ஆற்றில் மையப்பகுதியில் அமைக்கப்பட்டு வரும் பில்லர்களின் தன்மையை சோதிக்க, "லோடு டெஸ்ட்' 2008ல் நடத்தப்பட்டது. அதற்காக ஒரு பில்லரில் 30 ஆயிரம் மணல் மூட்டைகளை அடுக்கி பரிசோதிக்கப்பட்டது.

இது குறித்து சென்னை ஈஸ்ட் கோஸ்ட் கன்ஸ்ட்ரக்சன் நிர்வாகிகள் கூறியதாவது: இரண்டு ஆண்டு திட்டத்தில் துவங்கப்பட்ட ரயில்வே பாலப்பணி, தற்போது நிறைவு பெற்றுள்ளது. காவிரி ஆற்றில் 49 பில்லர்கள் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. காவிரி ஆற்றில் தண்ணீர் திறந்து விடப்பட்டதால், அவ்வப்போது பணிகள் நிறுத்தப்பட்டன. அதனால், பணிகள் குறிப்பிட்ட காலத்தில் முடிக்க முடியாமல் போனது.

இரண்டு ரயில்கள் சென்று வரும் வகையில் பாலம் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. ஆனால், தற்போது ஒரு ரயில் மட்டுமே செல்லும். பிற்காலத்தில் அதை விரிவுப்படுத்திக்கொள்ளலாம். பாலத்தில் ஜல்லிகொட்டி தண்டவாளம் அமைக்கும் பணியை ரயில்வே துறையினர் மேற்கொள்ள வேண்டும். அதுவும் இரண்டு மாதத்தில் நிறைவு பெறும் என, எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது. இவ்வாறு அவர்கள் தெரிவித்தனர்.

Ethnoveterinary centre for poultry industry soon



Courtesy : The Hindu

Going traditional:The ethnoveterinary centre will ensure better demand for Namakkal chicken and poultry products in the international market.

Namakkal: Vice-Chancellor of the Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (TANUVAS) Dr. R. Prabakaran has said that the State's first ethnoveterinary centre with exclusive focus on the poultry industry will soon be established at the Veterinary College and Research Institute (VC&RI) in Namakkal.

Dr. Prabakaran, who was at the institute here on Friday, told The Hindu that the centre would be established at a cost of Rs. 41 lakh for conducting research activities on traditionally used herbs to treat the fowls. The decision to have it here was made following requests from the poultry industry that sought traditional medication for treating the fowls.

The project is aimed at mainstreaming ethnoveterinary (traditional) medicine into veterinary curriculum to make use of traditional knowledge in herbal medicines for organic livestock and poultry production. He expressed confidence that it would pave way for organic poultry production to produce meat and egg without drug residues.

The export industry has set criteria for chicken meat and eggs – especially for the European and U.S. markets – where the product should not have any antibody, pesticide or chemical residues. “Bearing this in mind, we will conduct a host of research activities by extracting phytochemicals (extracts from plants and herbs) and test them at the VC&RI farms,” the VC said.

“The extraction will be done from herbs and plants that are easily available in the household backyard that are used by farmers to treat their sick animals,” he said. But those farmers knew not which component of the herb cured the disease, Dr. Prabakaran said. A scientific explanation on how the curing took place alone would be acceptable and practised in the industry and that is what we are going to do, he added.

Live field tests would be conducted to validate its quality following which it would undergo bulk production for industrial use. Private poultry farmers of this district have already volunteered to conduct such tests in their farms, he noted.

Focus would be on immunization and improving the quality of the chicken and its produce – the natural or rather traditional way – he said.

Initially funded by the Ministry for Science and Technology, it would function in an existing establishment at the VC&RI wherein the investment of Rs. 41 lakh would be for the first year and recurring annually, he said.

From the second year we plan to raise funds through the Council for Science and Industrial Research and similar bodies, he added.

A team of three technical and three non-technical personnel from microbiology and pharmacology background would exclusively work on this unremitting project. There are nearly 1,000 species of herbs and medicinal plants that have been identified in India and are traditionally used to treat animals. The centre here would be only next to a similar centre that was established by TANUVAS in Tanjore in 2009 with focus on treating cattle. The ethnoveterinary centre in Tanjore has identified nearly 20 such extracts for treating animals.

On proving its efficiency, the centre in Namakkal would be a boon for the poultry export industry as it would meet the good management practices expected by the Western importers.

Ashok Leyland Driver Training Centre, Namakkal



Courtesy : Ashok Leyland

Ashok Leyland's Namakkal Driver Training Centre in Tamil Nadu was started in 1995 "to ready a driver for life on the road and off the road". From the very beginning, the curriculum had included, besides functional subjects, health education including yoga and AIDS awareness (along with the education on the vehicle and traffic rules cum sessions on physical fitness, personality development and health risks like smoking. The drivers also attend awareness sessions on Sexually Transmitted Diseases [STDs] and AIDS.)

Namakkal is virtually the heartland of trucking in South India. The Training Centre has integrated itself well with the community, the various fleet owners associations and local NGOs, which has enhanced its ability to create mass awareness about AIDS. Identified as an important centre given its strategic location, the Training Centre's contribution is well appreciated by APAC (AIDS Prevention and Control Project) and AIDS Control Society.

Over one lakh drivers‚ who have been trained under various courses‚ have been covered under AIDS awareness sessions so far. Sessions on AIDS‚ which are part of the structured training programme‚ are supplemented by video cassettes‚ leaflets and booklets received from AIDS Control Society. NGOs also use the Centre for dispensing condoms. Specialist NGOs regularly visit the Training Centre‚ to deliver talks and to present street plays and dances with a message.

The Driver Training Centre at Namakkal is recognised as one of the best in the private sector. Following the Namakkal success story‚ Ashok Leyland has set up a Driver Training Institute in Burari‚ near Delhi‚ in partnership with the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi.

At last, train engine enters Namakkal

courtesy : The Hindu

Namakkal: Villagers and locals clapped their hands while they had their glowing eyes glued to the first railway engine as it slowly rolled on the newly-laid Salem to Namakkal railway track and entered the district border on Wednesday.

The first trail-run of the train engine on the 53-km-long Salem to Namakkal broad gauge railway line started from the Salem junction on Monday.

Project

The project that was initially sanctioned at an estimate Rs. 230 crore way back in the 1996-97 budget to lay the 85-km-long track between Salem and Karur was later revised to Rs. 740 crore at various stages following price hike of construction materials and other reasons.

A sum of Rs. 169 crore was allotted for the project during the last budget. Senior railway officials of the Southern Railways, who inspected the progress of the works in January this year, said that the work would be completed in two phases. They also made an assurance that the first phase between Salem and Namakkal would be completed before the end of March 2011 and the trial run on the track would be conducted in the same month.

The 32-km stretch between Namakkal and Karur would be completed in the next one year, they added. The trial engine that started from Salem junction on Monday entered the district at Mallur and reached Rasipuram on Wednesday afternoon.

Railway engineers, who were part of the trial run, said that it was a very slow process in which the engines would move at a very slow speed. Three such engine trials would be conducted on the track before running trains on them, they added.

Broiler chicken drops to Rs 61/kg

Quote:


After touching a new high of Rs 75/kg a fortnight ago, prices of broiler chicken have been slashed to Rs 61/kg owing to buyer resistance.

“It is a usual phenomenon that prices of broiler chicken zoom during summer when the demand for animal protein will be high. But due to consumer resistance we have decreased the prices and the present price tag is likely to continue till the end of May,” Mr P. Selvaraj, Chairman, National Egg Co-ordination Committee, Namakkal zone, told Business Line.

Retail chicken prices are currently around Rs 110/kg in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, despite the Lent season when consumption usually takes a downturn. The wholesale price of layer cull birds remained flat at Rs 40/kg, while egg prices were raised to Rs 2.30 a piece (Rs 2.20) primarily due to an increase in consumption.

Mr Selvaraj noted that the summer vacation and the ongoing poll campaigns across the State that increases flow of commuters to various destinations triggers an increase in consumption of poultry products, and hence the price increases.

Moreover, consumption in the neighbouring Kerala (a major market for TN's poultry trade) goes up by up to 20 per cent as the wedding season (April and May) sets in there. Sources added that the price of eggs is likely to increase in a phased manner.

Poultry sector seeks tech hands


courtesy : Deccan Chronicle

The multi-crore poultry industry in Namakkal and other parts of the country is booming.
Several corporate hatchery units and private entrepreneurs are going for eco-friendly climate controlled breeding units on par with international standards but the worrying factor is that the sector is suffering from acute shortage of qualified work force, said Dr R. Prabakaran, vice-chancellor, Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University.

In these units, the relative humidity, flow of air, feeding of poultry chicks and egg collections are fully automated and there is a lack of technical and administrative staff to handle such poultry farms.

To meet the growing demand, Tanuvas has introduced B. Tech Poultry production for students having maths and biology background in plus two examinations in the current year. Several entrepreneurs in south districts who breed broilers for egg and meat are approaching the vet varsity for graduates to be deployed for managerial works. Currently several veterinary graduates are obtaining a salary of `10 lakh per annum in corporate breeding and hatchery units.
Further the poultry sector is witnessing an annual growth rate of eight to 10 per cent over the last 15 years.

Changes in traffic pattern to avert congestion

Namakkal, June 24, 2011

Collector J. Kumaragurubaran said that a host of changes would be made in the traffic pattern in the city limit to avert congestion on roads and ensure free flow of traffic.

At the Road Safety Meeting held at the Collectorate on Thursday, the Collector said road works were being carried out in full swing near the bus stand and other important roads in the city for this purpose. Reading out the changes in the traffic pattern, he said that it was prepared after consulting the revenue, administration and police officials and representatives of various associations.

“Soon after completion of the road works, the ‘in gate' of the bus stand would be made the ‘out gate' and vice-versa”, he said. Buses from Tiruchi would have to take the left turn near the bus stand and go via Paramathi road to reach the Salem road junction after going around the Fort to reach the bus stand.

Taxis parked by the side of the road near the Travellers' Bungalow would be given an alternative place to avoid congestion, Mr. Kumaragurubaran said and added that a similar arrangement would be made for the unorganised parking lots in the city limit that had been causing inconvenience to the road users.

Realising the significance of the freight transport industry here, he said that trucks and heavy freight carriers would be permitted to enter the city area for 12 hours – from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., while they should stay out of the city for the other half of the day, he said.

According to him, trucks carrying goods to the commercials establishments will have a relaxation of two hours in the afternoon – from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. – in addition to the above said 12 hours. Owing to maintenance works being carried out on Pudupatti-Vallipuram road, trucks carrying sand could enter the city from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. till the work is completed.

He advised autorickshaw drivers in the city to limit their passenger strength – especially school students – to the permitted capacity.

Superintendent of Police Pravesh Kumar, District Revenue Officer R. Seethalakshmi, representatives of the lorry, private bus, taxi, autorickshaw and business associations participated.

‘All's well with Namakkal GH'

A three-member World Bank (WB) team that reviewed the Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project (TNHSP) in Namakkal on Tuesday said implementation of the project in Namakkal Government Hospital was satisfactory. WB Health Advisor Sundararajan S. Gopalan who led the team toldThe Hinduthat the recent National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Health Care Providers (NABH) accreditation for the hospital was an index to its achievement in healthcare.

Mr. Gopalan said the team had come to Namakkal to review the optimum utilisation of funds provided by the Bank as part of the TNHSP and also to find out whether the funds had helped improve the welfare of people. Since the implementation of the project in 2005, Namakkal has seen reduction in maternal mortality rate and improvement of tribal health through outreach programmes, he said.

However, there was still scope for improvement to sustain the NABH accreditation. Mr. Sundararajan felt that sustenance of the three-year accreditation depended on the efforts of the state and Central governments. Steps were being taken to make the nearly 270 government hospitals in the state achieve the benchmark set by Namakkal, he added.

After the review visits a meeting would be held with health officials in Chennai. A report would be submitted based on the observations and interactions, he said. Mr. Gopalan was accompanied by WB Health Analysts Sangeetha Binto and Ajay, Deputy Director for TNHSP Dr. K. Gunasekaran and Additional Director for Medical Services Dr. Panjanathan.

Resident Medical Officer of Namakkal Government Hospital Dr. J. Mohan told the World Bank team that expectations of the people from the hospital had soared after it received the coveted accreditation. Vacancies in superspecialty posts in the hospital should be filled and manpower shortage should be set right. The hospital should have better facilities and equipment to serve the people well.

Employment identity cards given to students

Namakkal, June 21, 2011

Most of the students who enrolled their names with the District Employment Exchange got their employment identity cards along with their mark sheets at their respective schools.

The students had already submitted their basic information during a special advanced drive conducted at schools from June 11 to 19.

On Monday, the drive to enter the marks of the 23,644 students of 282 schools in the district began. Soon after the cards were printed out and handed over to the students.

District Collector J. Kumaragurubaran who started the enrolment drive at the Namakkal South School here on Monday said that the drive would go on till July 4. All the students would get a common seniority date – June 20.

Students hailing from other districts who were pursuing their education at few private schools in this district had some difficulty in enrolling their names as the schools were given access only to enrol students who were from this district. They were not given the option to choose other districts.Some managements were, however, kind enough to take pain in enrolling their students through the normal online enrolment mode in their respective district DEE, while government schools did not have this problem as almost all the students were from this district, the DEE official added.

A few other schools asked the students to enrol themselves online or go to their district DEE for enrolment, said a parent from Trichy district whose daughter completed her Standard X at a school in Rasipuram.

Expedite bridge works: Minister

Namakkal, August 8, 2011

State Highways Minister Edapadi Palanisamy urged department officials and contractors involved in the construction of the overbridges across the Cauvery River at Mohanur and Kokarayanpettai in Namakkal district to expedite the works to ensure speedy completion of the same.

The Minister first inspected the construction work of the 1.4 kilometre-long bridge across the river from Mohanur (Namakkal District) to Vangal (Karur District). State Highway officials said that construction of the bridge at an estimate Rs. 36.3 crore began in March 2009 and was scheduled to be completed in March this year.

At present 55 percent of the work has been completed while completion was hindered at various points due to various reasons such as increase in flow of water in the river, the officials said. For this reason the date of completion has been extended to March 2012, they said.

Pillar work is nearing completion as 45 of the total 55 six-metre-tall pillars have been erected while construction of the 900-metre-long approach road from Mohanur and 600-metre-long stretch at Vangal is in fast progress, they added.

The Minister inspected the construction of the 319.8 metre-long-bridge across Cauvery that would connect Kokarayanpettai in Namakkal and Papampalayam in Erode district.

GSI to intensify Platinum hunt in Namakkal

http://ibnlive.in.com/news/gsi-to-in...36-60-120.html

Fuelled by the discovery of traces of Chromite, a mineral that acts as a host for the valuable Platinum Group of Elements (PGE), in Namakkal district, the Geographical Survey of India (GSI) has decided to carry on with its exploration at the site, hoping to stumble upon a platinum mine.

Geologists have been exploring the site, along a 17-km belt surrounding Sithampoondi village in the district, since 2006.

They said they have found that the grade of the PGEs traced in the chromite samples range from 1 to 16 grams per tonne (or 1 to 16 parts per million).

The PGEs were found during tests conducted on samples of chromite rocks from a four-km area in the region. Exploration is still in the preliminary stages, and the GSI has decided to work on a long-time mission.

According to S C Rath, GSI Deputy Director General (Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry), a grade of 2ppm is considered ‘viable’ for the PGEs.

However, the size of the deposits would also play a large role in deciding whether mining would be taken up in the area.

“Of course, we are only in the preliminary stage of investigations to estimate the average grade and size of the field. It might take up to 15 years before we have sufficient data for a decision of any sort,” Rath told Express.

However, Rath advised cautious optimism over prospects of a platinum mine here, adding that it would not be right to hastily jump to any conclusions.

Pointing out that the Geographical Survey of India started its preliminary testing in Namakkal and Mettupalayam in 2006, Rath informed that a similar process was completed in the Baula - Nausahi region of Orissa in 1984, but mining was yet to commence there.

“The preliminary studies are still on. It is a scientific process, of which we are in the middle, in Sithampoondi. This is expected to come to a close around April 2013. If the overall findings are encouraging, we will then decide whether to go in for detailed investigations,” said Rath.

According to him, the Sithampoondi belt was the subject of speculation and uncertainty ever since the Geographical Survey of India signed an MoU with the Tamil Nadu Minerals Limited (TAMIN), the mining and trading arm of the government to carry out exploration.

what are they looking for and why?

GSI’s studies at two belts - near Sithampoondi in Namakkal and Mettupalayam in Coimbatore - are aimed at gauging the presence, if any, of the Platinum Group of Elements (PGEs). This group of metals comprises Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Iridium, Osmium and Ruthenium. Found in extremely small quantities worldwide, these metals are put to crucial use in electronics, automobiles, catalysis, solar energy conversion, medical equipment and forensics, apart from their wide known use in jewellery. Apart from PGEs, the current study by the GSI could also lead to the discovery of large nickel deposits. According to experts, at present, India is dependent on imports to meet its demand for all of these elements. Any field that has commercially viable quantities could be of great strategic importance, they added.
