Staff Reporter

Presents crop loan waiver certificates

ERODE: The long-pending demand of farmers in Modakurichi for a cooperative sugar mill has earned the attention of the Government. In a year, a sugar mill will be started at Elumathur, said the Handlooms and Textiles Minister, N.K.K.P. Raja, here on Friday.

While presenting crop loan waiver certificates to farmers who borrowed from the Primary Agricultural Cooperative Bank at Elumathur, the Minister said because of the waiver, 1,06,194 farmers were benefited in Erode district.

He said the cooperative banks had started granting new crop loans.

Crop loan waiver


Mr. Raja said last year Rs. 105 crore had been granted to the farmers as crop loan and this year the banks would advance Rs. 85 crore.

For the development of Weavers Cooperative Banks, last year the banks had advanced Rs. 95 crore and this year a sum of Rs. 110 crore would be advanced.

The Minister wanted the farmers and the weavers to make use of the loan.

The Minister promised the farmers of Modakurichi area that before June 23, 2007, the cooperative sugar mill would be started at Elumathur.

He said in Erode district 10,000 tonnes of rice had been distributed to family cardholders and quality rice was supplied in all ration shops.

The Modakurichi MLA, R.M. Palanisamy, the Joint Registrar of Cooperatives, B. Joghee and others spoke.

The Minister Raja also distributed loan waiver certificates to the farmers at Pariyur Vellala Palayam, Polavakalipalayam and Gobichettipalayam.

IT spreads its wings
Most of the big Indian IT firms and many of the smaller ones have operations in several Indian cities. Vee Technologies, a BPO firm with its headquarters in Bangalore, employs 300 people there for its “high-cost work”, but about 500 in the town of Salem, about three hours away, where costs are lower and staff far easier to retain. Lakshmi Narayanan of Cognizant, an American IT firm with its main Indian base in Chennai, says IT job-hunters are starting to move there and to Hyderabad to look for work, as they do to Bangalore. Chennai alone has an estimated 100,000 software professionals, and is expected to add another 50,000 this year.

IT parks in Salem soon
Monday March 13 2006 00:00 IST
SALEM: Salem will soon be one among the second-tier cities to have software/IT parks.

According to sources, in a recent development, twenty bigwigs from the city, including a former Minister, had pooled in Rs 10 lakh each to start an IT Park in Salem. But all were being done silently in view of the coming Assembly elections and partly due to the fear of escalating real estate prices once the matter got exposed, the sources said.

Having received the nod from Union Minister for Telecommunications Dayanidhi Maran, a special purpose vehicle (SPV) - Salem Software Development Trust - had been formed. A sum of Rs 2.5 crore had been deposited in a nationalised bank under the SPV head of account.

Rajalakshmi, Director, Software Technology Parks of India (STPI), Chennai, who visited Salem a few days ago, held discussions with core promoters and explained the STPI schemes and facilities.

The major step would be to acquire land with easy access to the airport and highway. The land would be handed over to the STPI which would develop the park.

According to Rajalakshmi, Salem had a tangible potential. With over 50 higher educational institutions in the region, the city was much sought-after by IT firms.

According to estimates, around 30,000 persons from the region were already working in IT and IT-related jobs in India and abroad. With an airport facility and a 3.5 hour-drive to Bangalore, Salem had all the advantages to woo potential IT Companies to set up their units there, the STPI chief said. The BPO bubble had already formed in Salem with about 10 firms having set foot here. STPI sources said that the organisation was eager to promote tier-two cities.

The STPI will provide its“ Softnet” high density data services to exporters through its International satellite gateways. It provides world-wide connectivity, by operating through many of the international telecom administration networks and with around 60 carriers from its earth stations for various destinations.

A leased digital point-to-point service, with data rate options from 64kbps to 2MBPS and a TCP/IP based multivendor network, had also been provided.

The STP project envisaged at Salem is under STP/EHTP, a 100 percent export oriented project. Also, a Special Economic Zone (SEZ), is to come up. It is said that the promoters are busy hunting for land and also writing to leading IT and ITES firms to step into Salem. Though advance had been paid for a 10 acre land near Seeragapadi, members preferred a land near the Kalapuram Airport, sources said.

I think it all depends on patronage. Having too many threads without much info just to make a city 'represented' is not worthy indeed. But if there is enough interest and the forumers are keen to discuss in depth issues in the city it is worth considering it in the long run.

After all when India didn't have a section in SSC there were only one or two threads for whole of India. The Admins asked hte Indian forumers to show that they had atleast about 20 active forumers and when it was proved were glad to create a separate section for India. Once the SSC India was set up, more forumers signed up as there is a place to post thier specific interest in India.

Same way in the long run if there are enough forumers with regional interest in thier city, there is no point in curtailing them but rather it is better to encourage it. For example I am more interested in architecture and urban planning rather than IT or economy. If all info are being posted in the same thread it is confusing and witihn two days the post or pic that is posted is lost in history pages aand I don't find the interest to follow up or follow a particular story. Who knows in the long run there could be even a posibility for regional sub-forums within SSC India.

Would be interesting to see how others think.

IMHO Salem does not need a seperate thread, as yet. It can be merged into the existing TN thread. We already have threads for Madurai Trichy and Coimbatore as well. When Salem becomes as prominent as say Coimbatore then maybe we can have a seperate thread.

In this thread 5 major cities/towns are discussed.

Salem- Mining(includes Steels/Bauxite/Magnesite etc)/Sago/Proposed IT parks/Textile

Mettur-Power plants/MALCO/SISCOL/Chemical industries

Hosur-Town known for Titan/TVS/Ashok Leyland

Nammakal-Eggs/Poultry/Lorry body building

Erode-Mega Textile centre...

So seperate thread is justified... This is the fast developing region in TN next to Chennai and Coimbatore.

These cities/towns are not meant for tourism.. these cities/town dont have long history.. this region was developed by Bristish and now growing fastly.

In terms of infrastructure in this region Salem City is developing faster when compared to CBE or Madurai...

1.It has very good road bye-pass 4 laned one.

2.Traffic signals have camera to monitor the flow of traffic. Chennai and Salem alone have such system in TN.

3.City roads are in good condition and does not get damaged for rains!!!!

In terms of entertainment

1.As i mentioned earlier Salem is the 2nd city to get Multiplex theaters... Salem and Chennai has such type of theaters in TN..

2.Food malls.. Shervaroys food mall, ARRS food mall..

3.Cafe coffee day, Bomerang, Bangalore Gangotri, Broaster, Marry brown, Pizza corner, Sizzlers etc, have outlets in Salem..

Even CBE lags behind Salem in these type of entertainment and food malls.

Salem

All the traffic signals in the entire stretch of Omalur Road in Salem city are integrated and monitored by vigilence cameras.
This is the only road in the state outside Chennai to have this facility.

When, places like Madurai, where very minimal industrial activities going on, can deserve a seperate thread, Salem, being one of the most industrial region for a very long period, certainly deserves a seperate thread.

Prime Textiles realty unit plans expansion


The property development division of the Tirupur-based Prime Textiles Ltd, which is promoting a Rs 90-crore luxury residential-cum-commercial complex in Tirupur, plans to expand to other key commercial towns in Tamil Nadu.

The company will also be looking at other tier-II cities such as Erode, Salem and Coimbatore, and Kochi in Kerala for developing its realty business, as these centres have untapped potential especially for quality residential complexes and townships, said Mr P.D. Patodia, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of the Rs 120-crore Prime Textiles.

I dont think we need a separate thread for salem, most of the news are "plans" or the same news that has already been posted in the TN economy and infrastructure thread earlier in the forum.

Again if we are having a healthy discussion on urban issues, we can talk about it here, but just to keep the thread alive if we post stuff on KPN bus service, its going to make this thread as unpopular as Madurai and tirichy region thread.

About KPN

Stuff about KPN is important here for Salem...

Salem being the HQ for KPN, they have shown great intreast in developing the city links.

Salem is the only city to have city service provided by KPN.

You are correct, we need discussion on urban issues.. but many here dont know how Salem City will be.. so first let me try to get some pictures of Salem City roads, shopping malls, food malls, multiplex, buildings, flats, bye-pass roads, bus stands, railway stations, colleges etc, etc.,

Without getting into the debate of whether a separate thread is required for Salem, it is still the third most important industrial region in TN, especially if it includes Hosur. There seemed to lot of commercial development in Salem last I saw (not highrise unfortunately).

I had posted a couple of Google earth Salem images. incl. the bus stand in City Folder. Let us hope, even if not now, Salem can justify the thread in the near future.

Cheers

Salem Medical college hospital shall be upgraded on par with AIIMS, New Delhi.

Non-inclusion of K. A. P. Viswanatham Government Medical College Hospital by Union Ministry of Health for upgrade on a par with All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, has caused resentment among the local people.

Several political parties and organisations have urged the Centre to examine the possibility of upgrading the hospital here in the wake of its recent decision to do so in the case of Government Medical College at Salem.

The local hospital was selected for upgrade on a par with the AIIMS at an outlay of Rs. 100 crore during the previous regime. It brought cheers to the people of central districts but the project was hanging fire since the United Progressive Alliance government came to power, as Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss favoured the medical college at Salem for upgrade, ignoring the earlier proposal.

I couldn show the picture at this page.. how to proceed to show picture in this poat itself?

Thanks for those pictures of Salem City, Salem Central Bus Terminus and Yercaud.

Salem Central BS is the third largest in TN state. 100-105 buses can be parked in the bay at a time. But as whole more than 250 buses can be parked. Salem Central BS is the busiest BS of the state. Even in Chennai after 23:00 hrs rush will be reduced.. but Salem BS being the major transhippoint to Bangalore, Trichy, Madurai, CBE, Kerala, Cuddalore, Erode etc., it works continuously through out 24 hours.

No. of buses(say service/only mofussil i.e route buses and not city buses) handled per day is more than 1000 and passengers handled per day is more than 40,000...

Salem has no. of service to IT City Bangalore. Bus frequency is 15min through out the day. There are 8 non-stop service between Salem and Bangalore. These buses are operated by TNSTC-Salem I and Salem II divisions. Apart from this KPN operates more than 25 services which includes via buses from Trichy, Madurai, CBE and Kerala...Then no. of SETC, KSRTC, KESRTC, Sharma, Conti, No.1 etc., buses goes via Salem City.

So Salem City is very lucky to have such a bus connection to IT City Bangalore.

Arul, here is your picture.



After hosting the image in imageshack, you have to copy the link from 'Hotlinks for forum' and paste it here.

BTW, if you have enough pictures of salem, start a thread in showcase gallery or city folder.

And we expect more from you than the details about bus services.
