The already much-delayed and important physics project needs to be explained.

Luckily ppl didn't protest before initiation of these project.once things are finalisied they would not pull back.
INOhas one more advantage that it requires water for its operation.so there is no way CG would allow Kerala to control the water by building dam.
Ppl ruined TATA minerals which was about to start its operation in nellai to support the goon VV minerals. now those minerals are smuggled through tuticorin port in the name of exporting Sand.

World Tamil Sangam building in Madurai to be completed by December

MADURAI: The construction of the World Tamil Sangam building here will be completed by December this year, Tamil development and information secretary M Rajaram said on Wednesday.

The building is being constructed on the Dr Thangaraj Road here at a cost of Rs 25 crore.

Minster for cooperation Sellur K Raju, school education minister K C Veeramani and Rajaram inspected the construction site on Wednesday and gave suggestions. They also planted saplings on the premises.

Rajaram said the construction was being carried out in a phased manner. He said the Tamil Nadu government had allocated a whopping Rs 100 crore to establish the Tamil Sangam.

Madurai has been known as the centre of 'Muthamizh' (the three-faceted Tamil language) -- Iyal (prose), Isai (music) and Nadagam (drama) since the Sangam age. It is also considered the epicenter of Tamil development activities.

The World Tamil Sangam would act as centre of all research activities of the Tamil departments at various universities.

It was a dream project of former chief minister MGR. He allotted 14.15 acres of land for this purpose in 1982. However, he could not establish it during his time due to various reasons.

Chances are some politicians own decent no of properties ( since not much land is available ) in that area and so decided to put up everything in that area.

A detailed proposal to make Madurai one of the 12 smart cities in the state has been sent to the Tamil Nadu Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation ( TNIDF) for further action, city Mayor Rajan Chellappa said here today.

A resolution in this regard was passed at a meeting of the Corporation council today, he said.

Madurai City will have to make equal contribution along with the state government for the project.

I know this report is from the union govt. Yet, the parameters that have used to rate the cleanliness is I believe on the Solid waste management and few other parameters. Maybe, Madurai is doing well in those aspects. But that alone does not conform to cleanliness. Personally, I visited madurai 2 weeks ago and definitely, for me, it was not clean. The roads are in pathetic condition and our politicians mayhem is written all over the city. I wish madurai gets a powerful administrator fulfilling the basic needs of the people.

One more green initiative from Madurai blossoms

Over 30 units float special purpose vehicle for the promotion of a common facility with zero liquid discharge technology.

For M. Elango of Navarathinapuram, a third generation entrepreneur, dyeing and bleaching of fabrics is a business learnt hard, the traditional way. Like him, hundreds of dyers and bleachers involved in micro and small businesses were hitherto not aware of the impact of their vocation on the environment, especially groundwater table, of Madurai. They have been following crude manual methods without knowing how to dispose of the effluents.

When the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) cracked the whip, insisting on zero discharge of effluents, the only option was to shut down shop. This compulsion resulted in the birth of Southern Districts Textile Processing Cluster Private Limited (SDTPC), a special purpose vehicle floated by 36 units, for the promotion of a common facility with zero liquid discharge technology, claimed to be the first of its kind in the State.

The common effluent treatment plant (CETP), to be constructed under the Union government’s Integrated Processing Development Scheme, will become operational at Pottakulam and Tamaraikulam in Kariapatti taluk of neighbouring Virudhunagar district with an investment of Rs. 167.3 crore by this time next year. It will come up at an industrial estate to be created under the Private Industrial Estate Scheme of the State government over an area of 100 acres.

For three districts

The CETP will cater to the needs of dyeing and bleaching units of Madurai, Sivaganga and Virudhunagar districts and can even perform outsourced work for Tirupur, Coimbatore and Erode. It will even facilitate migration of textile processing units elsewhere in the State to south Tamil Nadu, says KR. Gnanasambandan, consultant.

Explaining Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) Technology to be adopted in the CETP, the Managing Director of SDTPC, Ritan N. Thakker, says that it will enable recovery of 90 per cent of water from effluents for reuse by units. It will also recover used salts and provide them for reuse. The technology conforms to Euro Standard and it will increase export potential. A team from IKOS, France, led by Christophe, its Director, International, visited the site for the industrial estate recently and expressed its satisfaction. A similar plant in Surat of Gujarat employs marine discharge of effluents by reducing their TDS and decolouring.

To start with, 36 units attached to the SDTPC will shift to the industrial estate by providing direct employment to 60 to 70 persons per unit. They will process textiles for bigger units in Tirupur, Rajapalayam, Aruppukottai and Madurai. The CETP will be self-sufficient on the power front with a co-generation facility. Its low processing cost is expected to give this green initiative a competitive edge over similar facilities spread across the country.

Clean India: Madurai ranks 20th, but a long way to go

The Swachh Bharat rankings may not have been sweet for major cities in the state like Chennai and Coimbatore, which were ranked 61 and 196 respectively, but for Madurai, which secured the 20th position in the country, it comes as a morale booster. Madurai is also the second city from the state after Trichy, which secured second position among the 476 total cities across the country. While the city civic officials are happy with the performance, they feel that the civic amenities still have a long way to go.

Civic authorities face a mammoth task of rebuilding all the 28 wards which were annexed to the city four years ago. Even as the expansion of the city from 72 wards to 100 wards took place in 2011, the newly-added areas are yet to get the required basic infrastructure. Sorting out drinking water issues and eradication of open defecation by providing better sanitation facilities are some of the challenges the civic body is facing.

At a time when the city is bettering day by day in clearing garbage, all is not well when it comes to dealing with sewage water. Each day, about 600 to 650 tonnes of garbage is collected from the city with the thrust on streets around Meenakshi Amman temple. However, due to issues in pumping water to sewage water treatment plant and incomplete underground drainage works, untreated water is directly let into water bodies like Vaigai river.

The collected garbage is taken to Vellaikkal yard, where processing them into fertilizer is taking place. Corporation commissioner C Kathiravan says, "We are now concentrating on segregating garbage at source level. People are being sensitized in segregating the wastes. Shortly, we are looking forward for the change among the people."

While new toilets are being constructed in the city, the civic body is focusing on converting defunct toilets into user friendly ones. "We are constructing more toilets at a cost of Rs 1 crore. The reasons for some toilets not being used by the public are being studied. They are being reconstructed," Kathiravan said.

City engineer A Mathuram said the corporation is working towards the elimination of open defecation. It would not happen overnight. They have already started working on it on sustainable basis. However, he said the mammoth task is reconstructing the added areas. "We have prepared proposals for several infrastructure projects for added areas at a cost of around Rs 2,000 crore. It includes Rs 618 crore underground drainage system, Rs 444 crore drinking water project and Rs 173 crore solid waste management plan," he said.

I think something seriously wrong in these calculations. One city in top most and another is at the very bottom. After all, all the cities( & people) in TN are some what similar.

Anyway happy about we got 20th position, still so much improvements are needed for our city. Wakeup call for CBE and Chennai and other cities, Hope their civic authorities will take actions and come up in rankings. Healthy competition is good.

Most outsiders would have visited Temple area (1 kms radius) and that area might not be clean. (Due to floating population, markets etc)

But other areas are decent IMO.

And again, parameter for ranking might not be just on visible stuff like garbage on roads. It might be more than that - like how garbage is disposed etc.

And not sure whether they considered air pollution where Madurai scored better in earlier surveys.

Another feather in the cap for Madurai City

Close on the heels of Madurai City finding a favourable mention in the Swachh Bharat rankings in the country, another feather has been added to its cap. The Madurai Corporation has emerged as the ‘Best Corporation’ in the state and will be receiving an award of Rs. 25 lakh from the Chief Minister on Independence Day.

The award has been instituted to the Madurai Corporation on the basis of grading a number of direct and indirect parameters. While the direct parameters involve garbage collection, solid waste management, functioning of street lights, water supply and drainage systems among others, the indirect parameters include the functioning and maintenance of crematoriums, schools, urban Primary Health Care centres and bus terminus in the city.

“The Corporation has been working towards improving the city and the facilities for the residents since a decade back. The Madurai Corporation also had high revenue collection. In 2004-15, we recorded 90 per cent of the target,” said A. Mathuram, City Engineer, Madurai Corporation.

Hardly a week back, the city bagged the 20{+t}{+h}rank at the national level in the Swachh Bharat rankings which graded cities on a number of cleanliness and sanitation related benchmarks.

The corporation schools have been performing well in the public examinations and a slew of measures which include identifying students across schools and providing them with coaching based on their level of understanding has been implemented, an official said. PHCs in the corporation limits too are being expanded with dedicated maternity wards and other facilities.

In the offing for the city corporation in the coming months are infrastructure development projects worth Rs 2,000 crore for the newly added wards, which need sustained development in terms of underground drainage systems and drinking water supply.

Will receive Best Corporation award from the Chief Minister today

SHOT IN ARM - Centre plans a VC fund for pharma sect

Chennai
TIMES NEWS NETWORK


The Department of Pharmaceuticals, government of India is in the process to create a venture capital fund with a ` 1,000 crore corpus which will invest in pharma start-ups.
“This is still in the formulation stage and the whole idea is to usher in the start-up culture in the pharma space wherein young minds can develop molecules in incubation centres which can then be bought over by big pharma players and that drug discovery is no longer the prerogative of larger players alone,“ M Ariz Ahammed, joint secretary, department of pharmaceuticals, government of India said. Ahammed added that such a venture capital funding would help meet the nation's disease burden needs. “We need to become lead ers in drug discovery and for that we need to do good investment in human resources and talent.“

The turnover of the Indian pharmaceutical market is ` 2 lakh crore; in which the do mestic pie is ` 95,000 crore.The joint secretary said that while 99% of drugs in the domestic market continue to be generic medicines, in the western world more than 70% are patent drugs.

“Our disease pattern is shifting from communicable to non communicable diseases like cancer, neurological and mental disorders.

So its imperative to enter the drug discovery race otherwise affordability and access to medicines will remain elusive“ he said.

New drug development can also help in price reduction.

“In India, 70% of health care costs are borne by individuals themselves and estimates suggest that 2% of India's population is becoming poorer every year due to rising healthcare costs,“ the joint secretary said.

Ahammed also said that the DPR (detailed project report) for establishing a NIPER (National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research) at Madurai was over.

“The cabinet approval for NIPER, Madurai will come in the next six months after which construction would commence,“ Ahammed said.

The investment for the NIPER centre in Madurai is expected to be ` 500 crore.

Most expected one ! Hope to see the Central Institute materialise soon !

Instead of ATPDC, If a full fledged CIPET was started at Madurai, It would have been better !

Expecting official confirmation on AIIMS at Thoppur , Madurai !
