Meenakshi Mission to tap medical tourism
By R Srividhya Jun 14 2011 , Chennai
Tags: Madurai, Medical tourism, Meenakshi Mission hospital, Thanjavur, Opportunities
In an attempt to redirect medical tourism opportunities from Chennai to smaller cities like Madurai and Thanjavur, which are popular tourist destinations for foreigners, Meenakshi Mission Hospital is planning to set up two hospitals, in Madurai and Thanjavur, with a combined investment of Rs 370 crore. The promoters are also looking at tapping private equity funding for the new projects.

Meenakshi Mission Hospital & Research Centre in Madurai is a 750-bed hospital with multiple specialties. The hospital clocked revenues of Rs 150 crore in 2010-11 with net profit of Rs 15 crore.

“The hospital is run by a non-profit trust, which means that we do not have much liberty on the pricing front and are also not in a position to tap the full potential of the medical tou-rism business. So, instead of expanding the existing hospital, we have planned to set up one corporate hospital each in Madurai and Thanjavur, aimed at the medical tourism sector,” Dr N Sethuraman, founder chairman of the hospital, told Financial Chronicle.

Medical tourism is expected to become a $2 billion business by 2012, according to an IBEF research report. Chennai is at the forefront here with corporate and specialty hospitals like Apollo, Sankara Neth-ralaya, Madras Medical Mission and Christian Medical College of Vellore.

The 350-bed Madurai hospital will be built with an investment of around Rs 300 crore. It would have all major specialties like cardio, orthopedic, gastroenterology and nephrology, among others. “We have already signed a Rs 150-crore loan agreement with HDFC Bank for the project,” Dr Sethuraman said. The hospital in Thanjavur would be smaller with 200 beds and entail an investment of Rs 70 crore, of which Rs 50 crore would be loan component and the promoters would fund the rest through equity investment.

Poised for welcome:The new Mannargudi railway station.


THANJAVUR: The passengers from Thanjavur and Tiruvarur districts too have their share of comfort of the cheap and convenient mode of transport. As the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) is likely to flash green light to the broad gauge line between Needamangalam and Mannargudi next month their expectation to hear the noise of wagon is on the home stretch.

The Mannargudi railway station that was completed recently has been equipped with adequate amenities for passengers. The station has three platforms, one foot over-bridge, a multi-purpose utility hall and an approach road.

Besides, 50 granite benches and five drinking water taps have been provided. A satellite passenger ticket centre has been inaugurated by Union Minister of State for Finance S. S. Palani Manickam.

While the trial run of an engine on the 14-km track had been completed, all eyes are on the inspection by the CRS and subsequent award of certificate on the safety aspect, which lead to the regular operation of trains.

T.R.Baalu, former Union Minister was instrumental in getting the railway line from Needamangalam to Mannargudi. His son T.R.B.Raja, the Mannargudi MLA, said it would be a proud moment for the people of Mannargudi once trains started pounding the line. "It is only a matter of time since all works have been completed by the Railways.”

The Rs. 79-crore project was commenced on April 2, 2010. There are no stations between Mannargudi and Needamangalam. There are 66 minor bridges, five manned level crossings and five unmanned level crossings.

The Railway Board had sanctioned Rs. 216 crore for extending the BG line to Pattukottai, according to P. V. Vaidialingam, Divisional Railway Manager, Tiruchi.

People demand a link to Tharangampadi, where a Danish fort existed on the shores of Bay of Bengal. This apart, the Railways has planned to run a direct service from Mannargudi to Chennai.

ready and waiting:Ashok Sinha, secretary, and Ajit Kumar, left, joint secretary, Ministry of Food Processing Industries at the mobile food processing unit in Thanjavur on Friday. K.Alagusundaram, extreme right, Director, IICPT, is in the picture.
THANJAVUR: A mobile processing unit was inaugurated by Ashok Sinha, secretary, Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries, at Indian Institute of Crop Processing Technology (IICPT), here on Friday.

The Rs. 21-lakh unit has been equipped with modern equipment to process fruits and vegetables. Farmers producing fruits like tomatoes can take the help of the unit to process tomato into pulp and preserve.

Mr. Sinha said during harvest season, due to sudden drop in market price, farmers either throw tomatoes in the streets or crush them in the field. Processing and value addition would fetch the farmers a better income and ensure more tomatoes available for consumption.

The unit set up by the IICPT can be brought to the farms and rented out to farmers for making tomato purees. These purees are in demand among tomato product manufacturing companies. The unit has equipment such as a washer to clean up the tomatoes, blancher for de-activating enzymes, pulper for converting the fruits into pulp, steam kettle and autoclave.

Mr. Sinha said farmers could know what kind of tomatoes could be preserved with the help of the unit.

"We do not want only the multi-national companies to go for value addition. Small farmers too can make use of it. Each village can have a unit of this kind," Mr. Sinha said.

Earlier, he inaugurated a national conference on career and research trends in food processing. He said modern technologies like imaging and nanotechnology should be utilised by the IICPT for research purpose.

The institute should provide leadership in food processing research to the whole country. It should ensure that farmers take to market oriented agriculture. It should have links with all institutes under Indian Council for Agricultural Research. He released a souvenir on the occasion. He also released benchmark of food processing technology manual and CD. Ajit Kumar, Joint Secretary, Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries, received the first copy of the manual and CD.

T. Jayaraj, Director, Tamil Nadu Rice Research Institute (TRRI), Aduthurai; and A. Alagusundaram, Director, IICPT participated in the function.

TIRUCHI: Joint Secretary and Chief Passport Officer, Ministry of External Affairs, Muktesh Kumar Pardeshi, will launch operations at the new Passport Seva Kendras (PSK) in Tiruchi and Thanjavur on June 29.

The Tiruchi PSK equipped to service 250 to 300 applicants every day will serve Tiruchi, Karur and Perambalur districts while the one at Thanjavur with a capacity to handle 300 to 350 applicants a day will cater to applicants in Thanjavur, Nagapattinam, Thiruvarur, Pudukkottai and Ariyalur districts, K.

Likewise, the District Passport Cells, where applications for fresh passports alone will be received, will continue to function until the PSKs are able to take the load.

The duration of police verification could be reduced by seven to ten days under the new online procedure approved by the Director General of Police for the offices of Superintendents of Police to convey acceptance or refusal.

Only applications with prior appointment will be processed at PSK, and the applicants after obtaining the Application Reference Number can choose their time to get the formalities fulfilled by producing all original documents and photocopies as required till 4.00 p.m.

Status of applications under the new system could be tracked by calling the call centre at 1800-258-1800 or by logging on to www.passportindia.gov.in, Mr. Balamurugan said.

The two PSKs under the jurisdiction of Regional Passport Office, Tiruchi, are among 77 PSKs planned across the country as a mission mode program under the National e-governance plan. Seven PSKs – two in Bangalore, and one each in Mangalore, Hubli, Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Ambala – are already open to citizens, processing 3,500 applications on a daily basis

We are in the process of rolling out the remaining 70 PSKs across the country. We will do it in the next seven to eight months; two or three PSKs would be opened every month,” Mr.Sobti told reporters on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the Tiruchi and Thanjavur PSKs here on Wednesday.

The PSKs are being opened in partnership with the Tata Consultancy Services, which would provide the front-end operations at the kendras such as collection of applications, recording of bio-metric details and photograph of the applicants. The project aims at providing passport services to the public in a comfortable, efficient and secure ambience.

Six PSKs

Mr.Sobti said six PSKs, including three in Chennai, one each in New Delhi, Vishakapatnam and Coimbatore would be opened in July. The Madurai and Tirunelveli PSKs are slated for opening on Thursday. Once the PSKs in Chennai and Coimbatore are opened, Tamil Nadu would be fully covered.

The Ministry has also planned to open 15 mini PSKs and five of them would be located in the North-Eastern States.

Without our permission nobody will have access to the data or application details,” he maintained when asked about the security of the data collected at the PSKs.

Steps have been taken to overcome certain initial problems faced in the PSK at Bangalore and capacity of the Kendra, in terms of the number of applications processed, has been enhanced, he said in reply to a query.

Tanjore and Sulur air bases will become fully operational soon


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Piracy activities in the Indian Ocean were getting closer to Indian territory, Air Marshal Sumit Mukerji, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Southern Air Command (SAC), said on Thursday.
Addressing a farewell press conference at the SAC, Mukerji retired on Thursday after a career spanning nearly four decades - he said that pirates were ‘reasonably close’ to the Lakshadweep Islands.
“They are still in International waters. Now, the Indian Navy is engaged in anti-piracy measures. At the moment it is felt adequate,” he said. While pirates are believed to be upgrading their weaponry and mode of transportation, pre-empting a pirate attack is still a difficult proposition, he said.
“For one, the Indian Ocean is so vast. Identifying a pirate ship is a problem. They are quite fearless and mix and merge with other ships. Only when an attack is attempted, we know,” he said.
With the Indian Ocean region gaining in strategic importance, the SAC is adding more teeth to its Air Defence capabilities. Air Marshal Mukerji said that the Command would be getting new assets to ‘reach out into the Indian Ocean.’ The Tanjore and Sulur air bases will become fully operational soon. By 2016, Tanjore will have a Sukhoi-30 fighter squadron and Sulur, a Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) squadron by 2012-2013, he said.
“Tanjore is going to see a lot of activity. “The Su-30 fighters aside, it will also have an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) squadron and also a transport aircraft squadron in addition to a radar unit,” he said. The Su-30s can cover the Indian Ocean from the Malacca Straits to the Straits of Hormuz. “We are also getting a lot of radars. Our radars are also integrated with that of the Navy and the Airport Authority of India,” Mukerji said.

The IAF proposal to revive the World War II airfield at Kayathar in southern Tamil Nadu was being actively pursued by the Ministry of Defence, he said.

Any reference please, for your quotes? If you have any questions about 2001 population fell free to visit http://www.censusindia.gov.in/towns/tn_towns.pdf to get a view of the population of cities in Tamilnadu. I think vellore and Erode population will be more than Tirunelvali in the 2011 Census. The new order may be CHENNAI,COIMBATORE,MADURAI,TRICHY,SALEM, TIRUPUR/VELLORE/ERODE, TIRUNELVELI AND TUTICORIN.

Regarding Tuticorin, this is the true story

Sources said that to get the status of Corporation, the population should be more than five lakh and annual revenue from taxes like professional, property taxes, rentals and license fees, should exceed Rs.30 crore.

Presently, the population in the Tuticorin town (municipal limits) stands at 2,16,058 as per 2001 census and the income is just Rs.18 crore.

Accordingly, the proposal has suggested merger of a total of 28 village panchayats extending from Swaminatham situated North West, Tharuvaikulam situated North East, Mudivaithanenthal at South East to Pazhayakayal village panchayat situated south, all spreading over an area of 353.07 sq km.

The amalgamation will take the population to 4,36,094, close to the stipulated benchmark.

“This will not be a hindrance from getting the Corporation status considering that the figures were based on census taken about six years ago and the population will surely have crossed five lakh mark by now,” sources said.

Similarly, the proposed merger will peg the revenue at about Rs.26 crore. “It is okay since there is a considerable increment in the revenue of municipality and the village panchayats that are to be merged,” sources pointed out.


http://www.hindu.com/2007/11/04/stor...0453720300.htm

Same case with TIRUNELVELI, still struggling to acheive the 5 Lakh population limit even after a decade of creation. I hope it crosses that threshold in 2011 census.

Walkers plant and nourishidea of a green Thanjavur
Getting hands dirty:Plants being watered at Annai Satya Stadium in Thanjavur on Thursday.

THANJAVUR : Walkers of Annai Sathya Stadium here have shown the way by not only planting saplings but by nurturing them. Some of the walkers took pains to plant the saplings, guard them with tree guards and water them daily, so that the saplings would be in good health during the arrival of the monsoon. Watering the plants during summer is a herculean task but some of the walkers are steadfast in this.
Amirtha Pandiyan, a morning walker, waters the plants planted by him using water pipes. "I planted nearly 100 plants and every one of them is good,” he said. Jayakar Pandiyan, ophthalmologist, brings water in cans in his car and waters his plants. Latha Kailasam and Hansa Jamal, two women walkers were the pioneers of this service. They were the first to plant saplings, protect them with tree guards and water them daily. They hired labourers to water the saplings. The saplings planted by them have now blossomed into trees and are adding colour to the stadium.
P.Gandhi, District Sports Officer, said "These examples are worthy of emulation by those who talk of tree planting and a green Thanjavur. Nurturing the plants and helping them grow into trees must be the aim, instead of planting them and leaving them to wither" he said.
Mr.Gandhi also said that the stadium, which is used in the morning by hundreds of walkers will have a walkers path soon. The Union Minister of State for Finance S.S.Palani Manickam has allotted amount for laying the pathway around the stadium from his MP's local area development fund which will be used. Another indoor stadium for playing shuttle is nearing completion at a cost of Rs 20 lakh. Proposal for yet another indoor stadium at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore will also come up soon, Mr.Gandhi said. A ‘cow catch' will be put up at the entrance of the stadium to ward off animals. There is a plan to construct a shopping complex at the entrance.
The sprawling stadium is located at the heart of Thanjavur. It has all facilities like a swimming pool, foot ball, hockey, basketball and volley ball courts. A squash court and a gymnasium are also available inside the stadium. Besides sports activities it is used for army and police recruitment, important meetings of Government and for many schools to conduct their sports day.

NABARD funded works at GAcanal usher in sweet tidings
THANJAVUR : Irrigation facilities have improved this year in the Grand Anicut canal, thanks to the modernisation of the canal taken up at a cost of Rs. 145 crore provided by National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) from its Rural Infrastructure Development Fund. With the water reaching tail-end areas quickly, the main GA canal and its branches such as the Kalyana Odai canal near Orathanadu are filled to the brim.
“Due to the embankment and bed lining work taken up at various places in the canal, fast flow of water is facilitated,” PWD engineers said.
The other modernisation works included strengthening of bunds, improvement of sluice gates and repair of shutters.
The efforts made by the Union Minister of State for Finance S.S.Palani Manickam, who is also the Thanjavur MP, has led to the NABARD releasing Rs. 269 crore for the entire Tiruchi region for various works out of which Rs. 145 crore was allotted for GA canal renovation.
Another proposal for Rs 251 crore had also been submitted to the NABARD for consideration.
The Grand Anicut canal irrigates 2.25 lakh acres of land in Orathanadu, Pattukottai, Thanjavur and Peravurani taluks in Thanjavur district and Manamelkudi, and Alankudi in Pudukottai district. A total of 674 system tanks are also linked to the canal. From Grand Anicut, 2,000 cusecs of water is released daily into the canal.
While the farmers of the area have already started Kuruvai cultivation, PWD engineers have appealed to the agriculturists to complete transplantation between July 15 and 20 to facilitate harvest well before the onset of North East monsoon.
At the old delta region which is irrigated by the Cauvery and Vennar, turn system of irrigation is followed.
The turn for Vennar will end on July 6, after which Cauvery will get its turn. During the turn for Cauvery, 7,500 cusecs will be released into the river while Vennar will get 1,500 cusecs. With the Vennar open to the turn system now, the river gets 7,500 cusecs daily due to which water had reached tail-end areas in Vennar system. The plan is to raise Kuruvai on 42,500 hectares in Thanjavur district this year and on 38,000 hectares in Tiruvarur district.
