Govt to promote Tourism

Nice move Jyas in opening a topic for this region.
-----------------

Tuesday August 29 2006 00:00 IST
UNI

CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu goverment will promote cruise tourism in a big way, tourism Minister Suresh Rajan announced in the State Assembly on Monday.

Moving the demand for grants for his department, he said at least six luxury liners were berthed at Chennai and Tuticorin ports from countries like Bangkok, the us and the united kingdom during 2005-06.

He said Mumbai, Kochi and Goa ports were on international cruise map for over 40 years and now the focus had turned to develop Kochi, New Mangalore, Moromogoa (Panaji), Mumbai, Kolkata, Port Blair and Tuticorin ports as cruise shipping stations.

''Efforts were taken to attract a large segment of cruise traffic from the united states and Europe to Indian ports, including Chennai and Tuticorin ports. As part of marketing the ports in Tamil Nadu, the tourism department had proposed to coordinate with Mumbai Port trust for cruise marketing'', Mr Suresh Rajan said.

As part of its efforts to attract more tourists, the government would improve basic infrastructure facilities at the traditional tourism centres like Thanjavur, Madurai and Kanniyakumari at a cost of Rs five crore each in the first phase.

BSNL ready with high-end technologies for IT park

It has sophisticated facilities in all the six places identified

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2,000-km-long Optical Fibre Cable across the district
Managed Leased Line Network technology already in place
Data circuits can be provided immediately
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TIRUNELVELI: As the Tamil Nadu Government and the Union Ministry of Information Technology are firm on establishing an information technology park in this industrially backward Tirunelveli, the Tirunelveli Telecom District of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is prepared to provide state-of-the-art technologies to the proposed venture.
The State Government has identified six places at Gangaikondan, Abhishekapatti and Chathram Puthukkulam, in the Tirunelveli taluk, Keezhanaththam and Panaiyankulam in the Palayamkottai taluk and North Valliyoor Part I and Perungudi Part II, in the Radhapuram taluk for setting up the park. Since BSNL has established in these places all sophisticated facilities, the Government is expected to tie up with the telecom major.
BSNL, which has laid 2,000-km-long Optical Fibre Cable across the district to ensure quality and uninterrupted communication, has extended the cable to these areas too. Moreover, any required bandwidth can be provided on demand, as infrastructure has already been established. Data circuits can be provided by the BSNL from these locations to any part of the country. The managed leased line network technology deployed by BSNL for providing data circuits of any capacity is also in place, BSNL sources told The Hindu .
"The modern multi-protocol label switching technology used in the Virtual Private Network, which carries the cheapest tariff for the corporate houses and which functions at Tirunelveli will certainly give BSNL an edge over private players. Moreover, we can provide VPN circuits and leased internet connectivity of any bandwidth to all these six locations under consideration," the sources said.
As the Tirunelveli Telecom District, which won the national award for `Best Customer Service in India for 2004-2005,' provides "high quality telecom services" to the Indian Space Research Organisation, the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project, the INS Kattabomman, India Cements, Madura Coats, the Life Insurance Corporation of India and banks, BSNL hopes it will be part of the IT park project.

Steps to set up veterinary college in Tirunelveli

TIRUNELVELI : The Department of Animal Husbandry is planning to establish a veterinary college here and a proposal, which is under preparation now, is expected to be included in the XI Five Year Plan.

"Considering the infrastructure available here and to substantially enhance and ensure better quality of service to farmers, the State Government has planned to establish a veterinary college here. And the proposal will be sent to the State Planning Commission for its nod," the Minister for Animal Husbandry, Geetha Jeevan, told reporters here on Thursday after reviewing the performance of her department. The Minister asked the officials to prepare a list, detailing infrastructure available.

She said that the Tamil Nadu University for Veterinary and Animal Sciences had successfully prepared vaccine for blue tongue disease and one lakh doses of the vaccine would be manufactured in the research station at Ranipet this year to save goats being reared in southern districts.

Ms. Geetha said that 12 of the 55 mobile veterinary dispensaries in the State were dormant, because of poor maintenance and equipment. Steps had been taken to replace six of the 12 latent units at the cost of Rs. 40.90 lakh and provide equipment in adequate numbers for all 55 mobile dispensaries. Moreover, all veterinary hospitals and dispensaries across the State would be getting mobile phones soon.

Expressing displeasure over the present condition of the research stations at Abhishekapatti and Ramaiyanpatti, Ms. Geetha said that though there was heavy demand for white piglets, no step was taken to meet the requirement.

Steps would be taken to improve the situation and emphasize would be on preparing fodder for the livestock in the depots of the department.

"The research station at Ramaiyanpatti would get Rs. 15 lakh for ensuring the supply of hybrid goat varieties to farmers," she said.

Admitting that over 5,000 posts in her department remained vacant, Ms. Geetha said 280 doctors would be appointed within a month.

Earlier the Minister visited the research stations at Abhishekapatti, Ramaiyanpatti and the veterinary hospital at Sripuram at Tirunelveli Junction.

Call to set up apparel, automobile parks

THOOTHUKUDI: All India Chamber of Commerce and Industries (AICCI), Thoothukudi, in a memorandum sent to Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, has demanded that steps should be taken to set up an apparel park and an automobile park in Thoothukudi.
The president of AICCI, JP Joe Villavarayar, said that, after the declaration of the Tuticorin Port as one of the major ports in the country, the district was thronged with new industries.
Moreover, due to the outstanding performance of the port and the upcoming Sethusamudram Ship Channel Project, many more new industries were likely to come up in and around Thoothukudi. Hence, for expediting on-going developmental activities and enhancing infrastructures in the district, the State Government should extend its full support.
Since exporters and industries all over Tamil Nadu and Kerala preferred the port as it provided fast and excellent service, the periphery covering 50 km around Thoothukudi should be developed suitably for new industries to come up, in terms of power, water and communication, to captivate them.
The Chamber further demanded the State Government that measures would be taken for further expansion of SIPCOT and SIDCO units immediately. Apart from this, the provision of incentives and concessions from the Government would attract the industrialists here and outside, to pump in money as they had the advantage of the availability of cheap labour. This would, in turn, trigger off employment and cause rapid economic growth.
APPAREL AND AUTOMOBILE PARKS: Pointing out the existing ready-made garment units at Puthiyamputhur at Ottapidaram taluk in the district, the president said that the creation of an apparel park would, certainly, give the industries a boost.
With the availability of the vast port land , Thoothukudi had been said to be an ideal city to be promoted as the second automobile industrial equipment manufacturing hub, next to Chennai in the State.
He also expressed his hope that steps would be taken to establish new salt based chemical industries and pharmaceutical industries in the district. With the availability of the vast port land, Thoothukudi had been said to be an ideal city for industries.

Nanguneri SEZ: Avani Group may pick up majority stake

A Kolkata-based real estate developer, the Avani Group, is likely to pick up a majority stake in the Nanguneri High-Tech Park, a special economic zone coming up near Tuticorin.

The Nanguneri High Tech Park was promoted jointly by the US-based INFAC Group and the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Company Ltd (TIDCO) through a special purpose vehicle, ATMAC Ltd.

The sources said that INFAC has identified the Avani Group as co-promoters. Officials in Avani Group confirmed their participation in the project. However, they declined to provide details, which are being finalised, they said.

When the project was envisaged over six years ago it was as an industrial park for high tech industries in engineering, electronics and pharmaceuticals to attract investments of over Rs 8,000 crore. The master plan was by JTC, Singapore. Subsequently, the Centre recognised it as a Special Economic Zone.

Now with the new rules stating that a minimum of 2,500 acres would be needed for a multi product SEZ, the private promoters will have to acquire an additional 500 acres, the sources said.

Last month the State Government announced that a 250-acre industrial park for pharmaceutical industries would come up at the Nanguneri Hi-Tech Park. It would have facilities for 50 large pharmaceutical units and 10 ancillaries. This would generate over 2,800 jobs directly and 2,800 indirectly.

Sources said that the State Government was keen to promote the project fast. With SEZs coming up all over the country with similar proposals and concessions to attract investments it would be the early movers to who get the big names in.

A Nice atricle on Srinivasa Printers - Nightingale books, Sivakasi

Sivakasi (Tamil Nadu), Sep 6 (IANS) Like a song bird, an idea that took flight in 1964 in a small Tamil Nadu town famous for its fireworks industry has now spread its wings all the way to the United States, Europe and the Gulf to bring home today over Rs.2 billion a year in export earnings for this company.

Nightingale is a stationery company in southern India that has made its mark globally.

One can find the 'Nightingale' brand in most book stores these days - exquisite jute-cover or leather-bound diaries, planners and organisers, telephone books with old maps and compasses printed on pastel covers, notebooks with quills and inkpots that one doesn't ever want to throw away.

A thousand different kinds of Nightingale stationery products made by Srinivas Fine Arts (P) Ltd (SFA), a Sivakasi-based company, are distributed globally today. The company is rapidly moving from being a niche player to a utility and gifts segment.

'We are also supplying Nightingale stationery to the White House,' J. Varatharajan, SFA's national marketing manager, told IANS.

The supplies to the US - including such prestigious clients as the White House and Capitol Hill - include Nightingale diaries, note pads, scrapbooks, spiral notepads and other stationery. He was unwilling to disclose the figures though. The firm also sells 25,000 Arabic diaries to the Middle East every year.

It has a warehousing facility in London and an R&D and design centre in Chennai, where a 30-strong team develops prototypes.

When it was set up in 1964, the company was just a label printer for the textiles industry in Tamil Nadu. But entrepreneur R. Chockalingam as well as his brothers had their own vision for SFA.

In the late 1960s, SFA saw growing opportunities in the printing industry and began to focus on technological superiority, rather than volume.

Chockalingam sent his son Rajesh to Britain to train as a printing engineer and buy Rs.150-million worth of machines from Germany. 'It was unheard of in those days in this small town where only labels for matchboxes and fireworks industry were printed,' Varatharajan said.

In 1969, SFA became the first Indian graph paper printer. Graph sheets were being imported from Germany when India switched to the metric system.

The company is also credited with bringing outsourcing of printing to India. That happened in 2000.

Today it prints not only fancy Nokia manuals and Motorola yearly diaries but also the Bhagvad Gita for the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, the Bible for the International Bible Trust, and beautiful old-world-looking tomes for the Library of Shakespeare.

In the 1980s, SFA captured the posters, banners and billboards market.

The brand 'Nightingale' was launched in 1990. 'Nightingale products are customised and go to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and the US,' Rajesh adds.

The boards for the covers come from Germany, the polyurethane material from Italy. Even the corner clips come from Britain. 'Our sourcing is our strength,' says Varatharajan.

The branded stationery market in India is around Rs.5 billion while the global export market is estimated to be around Rs.100 billion.

From the very beginning, SFA focused on export and '50 percent of our market is abroad', says C. Rajesh, managing director of SFA.

Every year, Rs.20-million worth of made-for-the-occasion notebooks are sold during the Sabarimala festival. 'The Ganesha journals sell in thousands during the Ganesha Chaturthi,' Varatharajan said.

Earlier this year, 50,000 diaries with Hindu gods and goddesses printed on them were sold within three months of printing. There is also an order of Rs.1 million for supply of these to Canada.

More than 100,000 copies of the mini Bhagavad Gita in seven languages have been sold. SFA calendars with reproduction of the old sculptures in Badami by artist Kalki Mani are in great demand.

For the coming festive season, SFA has a new range of 50 products under the sub-brand Vedic Cosmos, 'to re-invent Indian culture' with illustrations by G.L.N. Simha.

The range includes greeting cards with pictures of Hindu deities, Vedic diaries that have already sold 25,000 copies, diaries with Agasthya's predictions and a 10-inch-long meditation kit that contains a mini Gita, a suktha (shloka) booklet, incense, 'panchapatra', a bell, sandalwood garland, water from the river Ganges, a spoon and 'gopichandana' - all the paraphernalia for worship that NRIs love to possess.

The 'Sacred Scents' kit contains sandalwood, juniper, myrrh, olibanum (Frankincense), musk and charcoal. For Sun Pharma, SFA has made a Feng Shui diary for use by medical professionals.

It also has diaries for engineers and architects, up-market products for corporate houses, home-books to take notes from the next-door granny but with tips from 'Lalitaji', a popular character in a TV spot.

There is also the Baby Book and Family Tree Book, a journal where you can keep track of generations with anecdotal spaces.

Minister lays foundation stone for three bridges to be built at a cost of Rs 11.68 Cr

The Minister for Highways and Ports M.P. Saminathan laid the foundation stone for three bridges in the district on an outlay of Rs.1,168 lakh at a function at Srivaikundam near here on Tuesday.

Rs.65 crore for modernising Indian Rare Earths unit

The Centre has allotted Rs.65 crore for modernising the Indian Rare Earths Limited unit at Manavalakurichi in Kanyakumari district, Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Prithviraj Chavan has said.

Launching the expansion of the unit at Manavalakurichi on Monday, he said the unit had a production capacity of 90,000 tonnes a year of ilmenite and other associated products. In the first phase, the capacity would be increased from 90,000 tonnes of ilmenite to 1.50 lakh tonnes. In the second phase, the capacity would be increased to 2.50 lakh tonnes.

Monazite reserve

The plant played an important role in the country's nuclear programme. This area abounded with monazite reserve and supplied Monazite to the IREL unit at Alwaye in Kerala for processing monazite to separate uranium and thorium. This helped in the IREL stockpile sufficient quantum of thorium for being used as a nuclear fuel.

Mr. Chavan said the raw material needed for the plant, which employs 500 people, was sourced from the beach washing available in the Arabian sea coast that stretches for 8 km in the Manavalakurichi - Colachel coastal belt and the Midalam beach. The beach mining was being carried out with the help of 2,500 people belonging to seven fishermen village societies.

Expected to generate employment for about 5,000 persons

Tuticorin: The Tuticorin Port Trust plans to establish a shipbuilding yard on its premises on an outlay of Rs. 1,400 crore, to be built on build-operate-transfer (BOT) or lease basis.
Korea Maritime Consultants Company Limited, which conducted a feasibility study, submitted its report to the port authorities a few days ago.
Speaking to The Hindu , N.K. Raghupathy, Chairman, TPT, said the proposed facility would be established on 49.68 hectares — 31.68 ha of reclaimed area and 18 ha of waterfront. "We plan to build six Panamax-size vessels every year," he said.
