GRANITE EXPORTERS WOES

Dollar sneezes, granite town Cheemakurthy catches cold
Tuesday June 17 2008 11:06 IST

Ch Ramagopala Sastry

ONGOLE: With the US dollar rate dipping, Cheemakurthy, the famed source of much-sought-after black galaxy granite, are clearly worried.

As the chances of dollar’s revival appearing increasingly remote, the granite industry here has already halved its production expecting further slump in exports.

A workforce lay-off appears imminent in the troubled granite industry as the dollar depreciated against the rupee. Doomsday soothsayers predict a further dip in the exports in June.

Cheemakurthy in Prakasam district accounts for 80 per cent of the raw granite stone produced in the state, the remainder being accounted for by Nalgonda, Srikakulam and Karimnagar. Further, Cheemakurthy’s black galaxy granite is most sought after in the international market for its exquisite design and finish.

Another worrying factor for the granite industry is the escalating production costs as most of the quarries have to dig as deep as 150 feet. The diesel prices and worker wages have shot up by 30 per cent. As a result, per cubic metre production cost has spiralled up from Rs 30,000 to Rs 36,000 and the industrialists are left with no option but to cut production.The depreciation of dollar rate has definitely taken its toll on the granite industry, admitted assistant director of mines and geology C Ramachandra Reddy. The turnover, which was of the order of Rs 500 crore during 2007-08, could be as low as Rs 300 crore this year,‘‘ Cheemakurthy Galaxy Granite Owners’ Association president K Balakrishna Reddy told this website's newspaper.

Telangana: to be or not to be……

In the aftermath of bypolls, Vijayawada realtors find themselves in a quandary post bypolls, says K.N. Murali Sankar



TAKING A DIP: Land prices in Visakhapatnam have come down, thanks to a variety of reasons including the Telangana factor.

The outcome of the byelections in Telangana region appears to have left the builders and real estate agents in and around Vijayawada a tad disappointed. Real estate agents here feel that the land prices on the city outskirts will drop and the present slump in construction industry, in all likelihood, could continue for another six months.

Whenever the issue of separate Telangana took centre-stage, real estate business in this region has been witnessing a sudden boom. Particularly, since the inception of the TRS seven years ago, political statements given by the party in a way stimulated the real estate business here.

The builders, who are facing several challenges like spiralling prices of material, non-availability of labour and a drop in sales due to inflation, pinned their hopes on the outcome of the byelections and assessed that in case the TRS emerged victorious, it would provide a breather to their businesses.

“The result is a major setback to the construction industry,” avers G. Raja, a senior builder in the city. “Had the verdict been in favour of a separate Telangana, those settled in Hyderabad would have come here to invest their savings in real estate. Now, we don’t think there is any reason for them to invest here,” he reasons out.

“Once there is a drop in land prices, the buyers will expect reduction in the cost of flats. Practically, it is not possible for us to do so, as we have already made huge investments by procuring material at higher costs and engaging labour by paying higher wages,” says Y.V. Ramana Rao, general secretary of the Builders Association, Vijayawada.

“At present, we haven’t found any factor that stimulates the real estate market. A change in political equations in the State perhaps will provide a boost to our business in coming days,” he says in an optimistic tone.

Vizag real estate facing temporary lull, writes B. MADHU GOPAL

After the boom in past few years, there is a temporary lull in real estate for past few months in Visakhapatnam. The costs, however, continue to be high despite the lull in sales.

The initial boom was attributed to the talk of north Andhra becoming a separate State with either Vijayawada or Visakhapatnam as the capital. The talk triggered a spurt in land prices not only in Visakhapatnam but also in Vijayawada and Guntur. With prices of land rising dramatically in a matter of just two years, prospective buyers started fanning out into the suburbs.

“The prices of land increased four to five times in the city and doubled in the suburbs. The minimum cost is Rs.3,500 per sft in the city and there are hardly any sales for past few months. The hike in interest rate on home loans also contributed to the drop in sales,” says M.V.V. Satyanarayana, chairman of Apartment Builders Association and managing partner of MVV Builders. He expressed the view that the prices would have increased further had the Telangana issue not suffered a setback during the recent byelections.

K.S. Chandran, a senior builder and past president of the Builders Association, attributes the stagnation in sales to the high prices and says, “I have never heard of land prices coming down in the city in my 20 years of experience as a builder”.

He, however, admits that whenever the Telangana issue comes to the fore, land prices spiral. But they did not go down even after it almost became a ‘dead issue’.

A licensed document writer at Akkayyapalem G. Ramesh concedes on not many registrations happening in last few weeks but feels it to be due inauspicious ‘moodam’ .

Poor cash flow, declining share market and abnormal prices were the reasons for the slowdown in sales, feels B.R. Raju, proprietor of B.R. Raju & Company. “The quantum jump in prices can be attributed to real estate developers’ anxiety to woo more customers ,” he says.

GMR group to acquire ONGC stakes in Andhra refinery
From correspondents in Delhi, India, 11:01 PM IST
State-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) has decided to withdraw its stake from Kakinada Refinery and Petrochemicals (KRPL) in Andhra Pradesh, paving the way for construction major GMR to acquire the plant. The company said Monday evening after the final KRPL board meeting that the decision was taken after it found the project non-profitable. The KRPL project constitutes a 15 million tonne per annum refinery and a 450,000 tonne per annum petrochemical plant.

Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals (MRPL), a subsidiary of ONGC, holds 46 percent stake in KRPL and infrastructure-financing firm IL and amp;FS holds 51 percent while the remaining stake is held by Kakinada Seaports.

Sources close to the development said GMR will buy out ONGC's total 46 percent stake and five percent from other holders. As a result, the construction company will have 51 percent stake while IL and amp;FS and the Kakinada Seaports will hold 46 percent and the rest will go to Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corp (APIIC). However, GMR officials when contacted said the company has not yet received any official communication from ONGC.

Earlier, ONGC had asked the Andhra Pradesh government for fiscal benefits worth Rs.160 billion ($4 billion) for eight years. However the state government refused. Eventually ONGC decided to sell its stake.

Ethanol plant opened in AP

Our Bureau

Hyderabad, June 23 The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, inaugurated a grain-based ethanol unit at Gandepalli village in Krishna district on Monday.

Promoted by the Rs 450-crore Sentini Group based out of Hyderabad, the plant could produce 45,000 kl of ethanol and industrial alcohol from corn. The group invested Rs 130 crore on the plant.

The company tied up with Cemcorp Ltd of Canada and their Indian partner K.B.K. Chem-Engineering Private Ltd of Pune. It also took assistance of the US-based Corn Plus that had experience in operating corn-based ethanol and alcohol plants.

“The plant has been located at a place surrounded by corn-growing areas in Krishna and the neighbouring districts. This assures ample supplies of corn, jowar and other coarse millets. The plant can also consume brokens of other cereals as well,” Mr T Seshagiri Rao, Managing Director of the company, said here in a press release.

AP Govt urged to have fresh look at revival of sick units

Phalguna Jandhyala

Hyderabad, June 23 The Andhra Pradesh Incipient Sick SSI Federation (APISSIF) and the Federation of Andhra Pradesh Small Industries Associations (FAPSIA) have urged the State Government to make it mandatory to follow the Government and State-Level Inter Institutional Committee’s (SLIIC) recommendations for revival of sick units.

In a letter submitted to Ms J Geeta Reddy, Minister for Major Industries, the federations said that the Andhra Pradesh State Finance Corporation (APSFC) and commercial banks such as State Bank of India, State Bank of Hyderabad, Andhra Bank and others were not adhering to suggestions of the SLIIC, convened by the Reserve Bank of India, for the revival of the sick units.

They alleged that the Corporation was resorting to seizure of running, non-wilful default of SSI units on minor lapses. The letter also states that units were being sold off at a much cheaper cost.
SIDBI norms

“Earlier, as per the SIDBI guidelines, APSFC operated the rehabilitation and sick revival (RSR) cell. Before deciding any unit as sick or a non-performing asset, a committee had to go into the facts for the causes and extended their services to the management for the revival. But of late, this is not happening and we propose the RSR cells be re-operational,” the letter said.

According to Mr APK Reddy, President of the Andhra Pradesh Incipient Sick SSI Federation, even after the State Government had deposited Rs 6.7 crore with the Corporation for the past four years for revival and rehabilitation of sick SSI units, not a single unit has been revived.

“Another interesting point is that though the State Government is a major stakeholder in APSFC, there is no representation from the Government on the board to safeguard the policies, as per Section 10 (b) of the State Financial Corporation Act (SFC Act),” Mr Reddy said.

Both the federations, have requested two directors from the Government be appointed, of whom one should be a person who has knowledge or experience in SSI matters.
Appointment of directors

“Ideally, it should be people like the Principal Secretary, Industries and Commissioner of Industries as they are well-versed with the policies that the Government wants to implement,” he said.

The letter also said sick SSI units under revival are not getting support from the Corporation for working capital term loans. It added that APSFC should send reports to the Government and Commissioner of Industries on the progress of revival of sick units.

Sleepy southern areas wake up to a new growth phase

Quote:
Nellore and Chittoor districts in southern Andhra Pradesh are set to become the state's manufacturing hub in the next five to 10 years.

Factors like a push from the state government, proximity to Chennai and Bangalore, readily-available infrastructure and vast land (about 25,000 acres), are changing the face of these areas, which have large multi-product special economic zones (SEZs) like Sri City, Naidupet Industrial Park and a Kisan SEZ.

To realise the area's potential, the state government is planning to set up a manufacturing investment region (MIR), which will qualify for infrastructure grants from the Centre, between the port town of Krishnapatnam and Satyavedu on National Highway-5.

The Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) has asked L&T Ramboll to prepare the master plan and the feasibility report. This is being seen as the state's answer to the Tamil Nadu government's proposed MIR on the Chennai-Bangalore highway.

State officials say an MIR with good infrastructure will attract the labour-intensive manufacturing industry, which has so far been the forte of Tamil Nadu in the south.

APIIC Chairman and Managing Director BP Acharya said over Rs 27,000 crore worth of investments had been lined up in the area in manufacturing alone. If the six power projects proposed to be built near Krishnapatnam are included, the amount will be over Rs 60,000 crore. "The MIR proposal is also being discussed at the government of India level," he said.

The area's major advantage is connectivity, say officials. Besides the four-lane NH-5, which connects Chennai and Kolkata, the 75-km stretch between Krishnapatnam and Satyavedu is well connected by rail. This is in addition to Krishnapatnam port, to be inaugurated next month.

Though Tirupati and Chennai airports can meet the demand for air travel in the short term, a new airport has been proposed in Nellore. In addition to the existing SEZs, a 10,000-acre port-based SEZ is being planned, for which the APIIC is in the process of acquiring land, Acharya said.

The proposed manufacturing projects in the region include Rs 2,400-crore Kisan SEZ being set up by Iffco, Rs 880-crore textile and apparel SEZ by MAS Holdings, Rs 1,100-crore steel project of SBQ Steels Ltd, and Rs 3,500-crore industrial park and SEZ by the Caparo group.

Other projects include the Rs 500-crore Apache footwear SEZ, Rs 650-crore leather and leather products SEZ by Bharatiya International Ltd, Rs 100-crore leather SEZ by the Tatas and a consortium of shoe manufacturers, and Rs 18,000-crore Sri City multi-product SEZ.

The SEZ of Taiwan-based Apache Footwear — the authorised manufacturer of Adidas sports shoes — which began operations one-and-a-half years ago was the first to highlight the potential of the area. Then came Sri City, followed by the Naidupet Industrial park project.

Apache Footwear India Pvt Ltd, which has been operating in a 314-acre footwear SEZ, plans to double its manpower to 10,000 by the end of this year and raise the production capacity to 400,000 pairs per month from the current 240,000 pairs.

The state government has carved out a part of Naidupet Industrial Park (NIP) for Taiwanese companies, which are globally recognised as quality original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), to build up the state's manufacturing base.

Last week, Taiwan-based Mei Ta Industrial Company signed an agreement with the state industries department for setting up an auto component unit in NIP, where it will invest about Rs 600 crore in phases.

The project will come up in a 210-acre multi-product SEZ and on 20 acres of domestic tariff area. The Taiwanese and Chinese companies that propose to set up shop on the allotted land are Mei Ta, Streit, WAY SAI, NWS, DSP and DALF.

The APIIC has also allotted 2,000 acres to the UK-based Caparo Group of Lord Swraj Paul for setting up an aerospace and auto component complex at a cost of Rs 3,500 crore. The project would be implemented in over 15 years.

Similarly, the APIIC has allotted 714 acres to Sri Lanka-based MAS Holdings for a textile and apparel SEZ with an investment of Rs 880 crore.

SBQ Steels Ltd, part of Chennai's RKKR group, has started constructing its Rs 1,100-crore project. Delhi-based Bharatiya International Ltd is setting up a leather and leather products SEZ at a cost of Rs 650 crore.

Apart from this, the APIIC has allotted 40 acres to Rogen Powertech Pvt Ltd for setting up a wind electric generators and components unit, 10 acres to Tata Ryersons Ltd for a steel fabrication unit, and 30 acres to B&G Infratech Pvt Ltd for power transmission and railway electrification products.

YSR for expediting land acquisition for ports
Textile and apparel park, automobile, auto component park at Vodarevu
Nizampatnam cluster will include pharma park and agro marine industries
HYDERABAD: Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has directed the officials concerned to expedite land acquisition for the development of Vodarevu and Nizampatnam Ports and Industrial Corridor.

Dr. Reddy who reviewed the progress of the project with senior officials and Ministers on Sunday expressed concern that the two districts -- Prakasam and Guntur -- were lagging behind in development while other coastal districts like Visakhapatnam and Nellore made significant strides with setting up of industrial corridors. There was a need to develop these two districts and the project should come up at the earliest so that economic activity would accelerate and employment opportunities were created.

The project, being developed by the Government of Ras Al Khaimah and their Indian partner Matrix Enport Holdings Pvt Limited, covers Vetapalem and Chinnaganjam mandals of Prakasam district and Bapatla, P.V. Palem and Karlapalem mandals of Guntur district. While Vodarevu cluster would house textile and apparel park and automobile & auto component park, Nizampatnam cluster would include pharma park and agro marine industries.

The ports for the clusters, comprising power plants and other facilities would be developed on 2,000 acres each excluding the hinterland for which actual requirement was being finalised. Dr. Reddy wanted the developers to provide required training for local youth at the industrial training centre being set up and provide latest high speed fishing equipment to local fishermen.

Compensation issue : He wanted the promoters to be liberal in payment of compensation to those selling their land. Matrix Enport Holdings assured that the company would earmark a portion of its profits for providing health and education facilities to the local people while social welfare activities would also be taken up.

Well all those goods which come out from these industries will be exported from Krishnapatnam Mega Port in Nellore dist....so there would be less dependency on chennai.Coming to other modes of transportation there is a railway connectivity nearby & these all lie on NH-5 Which is being upgraded to 6 lane.coming to jurisdiction according to my knowledge chennai hasn't crossed the border with A.P it still has 20-30 kms to share the border with A.P.

The reality is, Nellore is already part of Greater Chennai. The northern suburban line that starts from Chennai central passes through Naidupet and ends in Gudur. Both these places are in AP FYI.
There are already thousands of people travelling to and fro each day on these local trains.

The apparel industry trying to shift to Nellore is targetting Chennai workforce,
since Chennai is the major apparel center in south India after Coimbatore and Bangalore.

The automobile component industries like Caparo are again targetting customers and workforce in Chennai.

Krishnapatnam port is being built mainly for supplying coal to the upcoming power plant. The container terminal they are planning is still a farfetched idea and I don't think they will throw away that much money since Chennai and Ennore ports will target lion share of their market potential.

There are already thousands of people travelling to and fro each day on these local trains.

Bobbie, You have the habbit of attacking anybody making any comments about AP. This is internet and open for everybody. In a public forum such as this, one should have some amount of give and take while discussing issues and sharing view points. Otherwise, we cannot discuss anything. If some one is wrong, you can correct it instead of vilifying the individual or a whole group of people for one individual's remark.

If you have any issues with any comments take it up with the moderators. Don't spread hate messages against any group for a simple reason that one individual made some inocuous remark.
