Madurai division aims net revenue of Rs. 323 crore

Madurai division aims net revenue of Rs. 323 crore

Staff Reporter

Railway plans to handle more cargo Of the 10.06 lakh tonnes of cargo handled, 85 percent was contributed by `Tuticorin freight handling complex'


Tuticorin: Hemant Kumar, Divisional Railway Manager, Southern Railway (Madurai division), said that the division hoped to achieve net revenue of Rs. 323 crore this financial year against Rs. 264.46 crore realised during the previous year.

Of the Rs. 179.40 crore achieved till September 30, Rs. 83.15 crore was generated through passenger movement and the rest from cargo loading, he told reporters here on Wednesday.

On cargo handling, the division has set a target of 25 lakh tonnes for the fiscal against 19.7 lakh tonnes loaded during the previous financial year.

This fiscal, till August 31, a total of 10.06 lakh tonnes of cargo was loaded, surpassing Rs. 10.05 lakh tonnes achieved during the corresponding period last fiscal.

Of the 10.06 lakh tonnes of cargo handled, 85 percent was contributed by the `Tuticorin freight handling complex' comprising Meelavittan, SPIC siding and Tuticorin Harbour stations.

An increase of 0.01 lakh tonnes in the period could be attributed to higher imports of wheat, coal and fertilizer through Tuticorin port, as well as larger quantity of gypsum and salt movement from Meelavittan station.

Payload of wagons stood at 63 tonnes.

By utilising the infrastructure in a better way, the wagon turnaround time in the division would be reduced from 1.7 days clocked in the last fiscal, and the speed of trains increased from 28 km per hour to 30 km or 477 km for an engine a day to 500 km.

Prizes given


Mr. Kumar gave away prizes to the staff of `Tuticorin freight handling complex' in recognition of their contribution in increasing the cargo load.

I. Jayakumar, Senior Divisional Operations Manager, and Robert Rajasekaran, Divisional Engineer, was present.

Public hearing on nuclear project expansion postponed

Saturday October 7 2006 13:39 IST
TIRUNELVELI: The public hearing by the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) at Tirunelveli District Collectorate on Friday on the proposed expansion of Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project was postponed following a strong protest from people, mostly fishermen and farmers from Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli and Thoothukudi districts.

Terming the public hearing as a secret hearing, environmentalists and activists, who attended the hearing, charged the TNPCB with wantonly giving advertisement about the hearing a month ago in ‘Economic Times’, the readership of which in the three districts is very negligent, and the Tirunelveli edition of a vernacular press.

‘This is a blatant violation of the Environmental Impact Assessment Notification 1994, according to which, a public hearing is to be conducted for any project with its total project outlay crossing Rs 50 crore, be notified in all vernacular dailies so as to let people in the vicinity of the project site, register their opinions if any,’ said the State committee member of Coastal Action Network (CAN) Jeeva.

The next objection was raised from the farmers in Vilavankode and Kalkulam taluks of Kanyakumari district and some parts of Radhapuram taluk in Tirunelveli district, located adjacent to Kanyakumari district, who depend on water from Pechiparai Dam for cultivation.

Former Killiyoor MLA Kumaradoss who was present on the occasion, said 11.27 million cubic metre water (30,891 cubic metre a day) was needed to meet the annual water demand (for domestic services, fire water make-up and chemical treatment) of the proposed expansion project. Drawing such huge amount of water from Pechiparai Dam could certainly affect the livelihood of the farmers, he added.

DLF proposes to develop SEZ at Nanguneri

Real estate and infrastructure development group DLF plans to invest Rs. 10,000 crore in the development of Special Economic Zones, integrated townships, hotels and convention centres in Tamil Nadu.

DLF vice-chairman Rajiv Singh met Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi here on Sunday and submitted a number of proposals.

DLF chief executive, commercial, S. Vasudevan told The Hindu that the proposals included an offer to build a multi-product special economic zone and satellite town at Nanguneri, Hosur or Perambalur, all three mentioned in the Chief Minister's budget speech.

During the meeting, Mr. Singh also offered to develop roads, bridges and airports across the State through public-private partnership.

A government release said the Chief Minister was keen that large-scale multi-product SEZs were taken up by groups like DLF. He asked the company to present more concrete and detailed proposals to the departments concerned.

Meetings planned

Mr. Vasudevan said meetings with the Chief Secretary and other departmental secretaries would take place this week and specific announcements were likely by the end of the month.

The release said the projects would "not only generate massive direct and indirect employment, but would also strengthen Tamil Nadu's position as a leading investment destination in the country, and accelerate economic growth in the State."

Rs.50-lakh facility for Tuticorin hospital

Tuticorin: A new maternity ward will be established on the Tuticorin Medical College and Hospital premises, on an outlay of Rs.50 lakh, according to V.K. Subburaj, State Health Secretary.

The construction would commence this financial year and the facility would start functioning in the next fiscal.

Speaking to The Hindu here on Friday, he said that the present maternity ward with 100 beds was insufficient to cater to the increasing number of in-patients.

The department would distribute quality mattresses and bed linen for all the 600 beds at the hospital.

Work on the proposed Rs.19-crore super-specialty block at the hospital would commence this financial year and completed within a year.

Modern canteens would also be established — one near the hospital and another near the hostel for house surgeons.

On the large number of posts lying vacant at the hospital, and reported to be crippling its effective functioning, he said that steps would be taken to fill the 200-odd vacancies.

He said that instructions had been issued to the Director of Medical Education, Director of Public Health and Director of Medical Services to fill the vacancies at the earliest.

Accompanied by the Secretary, Department of Information Technology, S. Chandramouli and the Managing Director of Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT), S.

On Monday, the Collectors are scheduled to interact with the IT majors and address the media there on the advantages the IT industries will enjoy in tier-II cities.

CM's memorandum to PM includes development of Colachel port

Quote:
CM requested the Centre to take up development of Colachel port as a major port on completion of the draft feasibility report/detailed project report by Sethusamudram Corporation.

Both reports indicated the port's high economic potential. The Centre could take it up on the lines of the Sethusamudram ship canal project, since the viabilty would be better after completion of the project and it would contribute to developing the industrially backward southern districts, he said.
http://www.hindu.com/thehindu/holnus...0611040925.htm

PM extends centers support for the developement of Colachel port into a major container port once the feasibility report is completed.

Project report for container transhipment hub at Colachel
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The port is close to the international shipping route.
Steamers of around 15,000 tonnes can anchor at the port, which is now managed by the Tamil Nadu Maritime Board.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sethusamudram Corporation Ltd has invited bids from consultancy companies to prepare a detailed project report to develop a container transhipment hub at Colachel, a minor port in southern Tamil Nadu.

According to an official, the corporation, which is implementing the Sethusamudram Ship Canal Project, estimates that the container transhipment hub could cost more than Rs 2,000 crore. The Ministry of Shipping wanted it to do a feasibility study on the project.

The port is close to the international shipping route. Steamers of around 15,000 tonne can anchor at the port, which is now managed by the Tamil Nadu Maritime Board.

`Suitable port'

RITES Ltd, a consultancy organisation, in its "Port Vision 2020" report identified Colachel as a suitable port for a container transhipment hub. In 1998, the Tamil Nadu Government prepared a detailed feasibility report, which was later updated in 2000 by the Malaysian Government through the Construction Industry Development Board, Malaysia, for a greenfield port costing Rs 2,000 crore.

However, the interest shown by the Malaysian Government did not materialise for want of suitable financial arrangements by them.

The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Mr M. Karunanidhi, had taken up the issue of developing the transhipment hub at a recent meeting with the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh. Considering the potential and viability of the project, the State Government has now taken up with the Union Government to develop Colachel as a container transhipment hub, says the State Government's Policy Note for 2006-2007.

Feasibility report

The new feasibility report would include traffic study, vessels size analysis, perspective plan and development proposals, cost estimate and techno economic analysis of the proposed schemes. The study would also necessitate reviews of earlier feasibility reports. It will also review developments in container handling in neighbouring transhipment hubs and Indian container handling ports, especially Tuticorin, JNPT and Kochi, according to sources.

In 2005, around 1.80 million twenty-foot equivalent units of Indian containers (both import and export) were transhipped through Singapore and Colombo ports. This presents a ready market for the need to develop a South Indian transhipment hub to boost container throughput in the country. A hub is also required to handle post-Panamax vessels initially and super post-Panamax vessels immediately, thereafter.

To participate in the bid, the tenderer should have prepared one detailed project report of port planning assignment with a total project cost of at least Rs 1,000 crore any time during the past five years.
