Soaring egg prices send locals scrambling for alternatives

Though not a news of Karnataka, still posted to show the importance of B'luru and B'gavi

Panaji: The rising prices of eggs have left wholesalers, retailers and consumers, affected. While consumers are forced to find a substitute for eggs at breakfast, and give their favourite evening snack—ross omelette—a miss, wholesalers and retailers, who are already reeling from competition, now have to deal with fewer customers for "no fault of theirs".

Afroze Bepari, a wholesale egg seller at Al-Madina cold stores in the Panaji market, says that he receives daily updates from Bangalore and Belgaum about the going rate of eggs via SMS. Accordingly, the prices are hiked in Goa. "If 100 eggs are priced at a certain rate in Bangalore, the same is sold at an additional rate of 10 and 20 in Belgaum and Goa respectively," he says.

Just last week, eggs were priced at 43 a dozen, while today, consumers are buying the same amount for 46 per dozen. With the festive season getting closer, egg prices are only expected to go higher, to 55-60 per dozen.

Lamenting about "competition affecting our sales" Bepari, who has been in the business for the past 18 years, explains, "Despite the fact that I buy the same amount of eggs I did 18 years ago, I fail to generate the same amount of business. People now buy eggs closer to home even if the rates are a little higher. Panaji market can no longer monopolize the business, because fast-moving consumer goods are now available in every town and village of a city."

Talking about the rising price of eggs, Inacio Fernandes, proprietor of Apollo 11 Chicken Centre in the Panaji market, who has been in the business of selling eggs for the past 20 years, says, "Until about 2002, the price of eggs in Goa was approximately 10-12 a dozen. It was cheaper in 1994, when I first started the business. This steep rise in price is due to the increase in prices of chicken feed." Stating that 50kg of chicken feed costs a little over 2,000 today, he says that poultry farmers recover the money by hiking the price of the product, like eggs, for instance.

Fernandes previously owned a poultry farm and supplied fresh eggs from there. The rising prices of feed for chicken began to eventually burn a hole in his pocket, forcing him to shut down his farm. Today, Fernandes orders 1,000 crates of eggs from Karnataka each week, which amounts to a total of 30,000 eggs—all of which are usually sold out by the end of the week. But Fernandes fears the rising price of eggs could hinder sales, this time around.

Elaborating, Afroze's brother Altaf, who assists him in the business adds, "We sell eggs in the wholesale market for 46 a dozen and to make it a round figure, we sell 13 eggs for 50. These eggs are supplied to us from Belgaum twice a week. A total of 700 crates, each comprising 30 eggs, are bought at a time, thus resulting in the sale of 1,400 crates per week. But looking at the current scenario, as it is, customers are few, and with the price hike, there will perhaps be a further drop in sales."

Vinita D'Sa, a homemaker from Porvorim, has already reduced the number of eggs in her daily menu. In a week, she now buys six eggs instead of 12, due to the price hike. Homemaker Maria de Sa is also looking at alternative ingredients to substitute eggs at the family's breakfast table. She says, "We are a family of five and eat eggs everyday for breakfast. Due to the rise in price, we might have to replace eggs."

Vishal Goankar, whose family owns an omlette gadda near the ferry point in Panaji, says, "Our livelihood depends on eggs. Due to the price hike, the rate of our food items has also increased. Earlier, we sold an omlette pao for 25 while ross omlette was priced at 30. This has now been hiked to 30 and 40, respectively. Our regular customers obviously feel the pinch and don't visit as often. For instance, on a daily basis, if we had 40 takers for a particular food item, it has gone down to 30. This is affecting our business."

Just last week, eggs were priced at 43 a dozen, while today, consumers are buying the same amount for 46 per dozen. Some associate the steep rise in price due to increase in prices of chicken feed

Warburg-backed Quest buys NeST

BANGALORE: Warburg Pincus-backed Quest Global Engineering has acquired an 84% stake in NeST Software, the engineering and embedded services business of Kochi-based NeST Group, for slightly over Rs 500 crore.

Bangalore-based Quest provides engineering outsourcing services to clients that include Rolls Royce, GE, Pratt & Whitney and Airbus. The NeST deal will bolster Quest's revenue by about Rs 300 crore and also give the Warburg Pincus-backed company a significant start in the healthcare domain. Investment bank o3 Capital advised on the transaction.

The acquisition will add 1,900 employees, taking Quest's total strength to 6,850. About 4,500 of these employees are in India, 1,350 in the US and 1,000 in Europe.

Most of Quest's India employees are in Bangalore and Belgaum, and that of NeST in Thiruvananthapuram.

Quest said its revenue in the year ended March 2014 was $251 million (Rs 1,500 crore) and expects that to grow organically — excluding NeST — to $290 million (Rs 1,740 crore) this year.

The sale will see NeST, a $200-million enterprise founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jawed Hasan, staying focused on hardware, manufacturing and R&D domains.

Quest clinched the deal pipping private equity investor Kedaara Capital, who was seen as a front-runner in the deal-making till three months ago. Kedaara, founded by former Temasek honcho Manish Kejriwal and General Atlantic MD Suneesh Sharma, had done extensive diligence work on the transaction before dropping out.

"It was a hard-fought battle for us," said Ajit Prabhu, who founded Quest together with long-time friend and colleague Aravind Melligeri in 1997.

Belagavi Congress leaders to meet CM


The district Congress committee has urged the State government to sanction a special grant of Rs.1,000 crore for comprehensive development of Belagavi city and other taluks in the district.

A delegation of party leaders from the district will soon meet Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and stress the need for expediting development through additional funding. Details of development works that need to be taken up on short-term and long-term basis were discussed on Thursday and it would be presented before the Chief Minister, district Congress committee president Laxmi R. Hebbalkar said in a release here on Friday.

She said the committee would urge the government to dedicate at least five days in a month to discuss issues and problems pertaining to the north Karnataka region and come out with appropriate solutions.

Ms. Hebbalkar said in view of the growing demand for diploma courses in the field of engineering and technology, the government should sanction at least four polytechnics to the district.

The border dispute and the Belagavi legislature session

A new government has just taken charge in the neighbouring State of Maharashtra. Consequently, it is an appropriate time for Karnataka to hold a session of the legislature in the border city of Belgaum (now renamed Belagavi) to drive home the point that little purpose will be served in seeking to reopen the issue that was put on the backburner nearly five decades ago. Rechristening Belgaum as Belagavi is in itself aimed at identifying the border district with a distinct Kannada flavour.

Differences apart, it is imperative for all political parties and leaders here to put up a united front similar to the stance of the political parties in the neighbouring State. The formation of a government by the Bharatiya Janata Party in Maharashtra, and with the same party ruling in the Centre and also focussing on regaining its lost ground here will augur well for Karnataka, in terms of the border dispute which may be given a quiet burial.

Contrary to the charges being levelled against the incumbent government that it is keen to shy away from holding the legislature session at Belgaum, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has conveyed to The Hindu that a 10-day session will be held in the border city commencing from the first fortnight of December. It should be noted that a nearly Rs. 400-crore granite structure — the Suvarna Soudha — has been constructed at Belgaum primarily to hold the legislature session to take stock of matters of regional importance.

That a session at Belgaum is all the more imperative at the present juncture, irrespective of the threat by the sugarcane growers that they will stall the proceedings similar to what happened during the session of the last calendar year, is reminiscent of the decision taken by the coalition government of H.D. Kumaraswamy in September 2006, when it decided to organise the Belgaum session of the legislature despite the opposition raised by the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti (MES).

The border city of Belgaum became an integral part of Karnataka after the reorganisation of States in 1956, and this was further reinforced a decade later by the Mehr Chand Mahajan Commission, constituted by the Union government on the border dispute among the States of Karnataka, Kerala and Maharashtra. It is another matter that the findings of the Mahajan Commission submitted to then Union government in 1967 is yet to be tabled in Parliament.

The five-day session held in 2006 (soon after a petition was filed by the State of Maharashtra in the Supreme Court ) was the first to be held outside the State capital, Bangalore, and the two houses of the legislature unanimously adopted a resolution, endorsing the Mahajan Commission report which declared Belgaum as an integral part of Karnataka. It was for the fifth time that such a resolution was passed by the State legislature, the first being in 1967 when the late S. Nijalingappa was the Chief Minister. The Kumaraswamy government had also stated that Belgaum would be made Karnataka’s second State capital although nothing much has been heard after that. The ensuing session will be the fifth to be held in Belgaum.

Karnataka winter session to be less expensive this time!

Bengaluru: Taking to heart the public criticism it had invited for its lavish spending on the last winter session of the state legislature in Belgaum, the state government has this time done away with not just sumptuous lunches for legislators and officers, but also free coffee/tea and snacks.



Only a working lunch will be served to the legislators, officers, the media and the police during the 10-day session starting December 9. Considering that the lavish Uttara Karnataka dishes served last year had sent many legislators and officers home with an upset stomach, this time the food served will be light and easy on the stomach, reveals a secretariat officer.



“Legislators will be served a simple fare of rice sambar, chapathi and curd. Last time, it was charged Rs. 1200 a plate for 8000 people a day by private caterers and had to spend Rs. 9.60 lakh a day on lunch alone,” said an officer. But that’s not all. No dinner will be served either to the legislators and officers, who will have to buy their own this year. And unlike last year, they will to have to make their own way to the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha for the session.

ICMR to pay for land acquisition

The Supreme Court last week slightly reduced the compensation awarded to land owners in Belgaum, whose land was acquired for a research centre for Indian Council of Medical Research. The government notified the acquisition in 1994 and the land acquisition officer assessed the compensation at Rs 1,050 per 'gunta' or Rs 42,000 per acre. The land owners moved the civil court for re-determination.

It hiked the amount to Rs 7,000 per 'gunta'. They appealed to the Karnataka High Court for higher rate. It enhanced the compensation to Rs 99,000. Therefore ICMR, a central government organisation, moved the Supreme Court. It arrived at Rs 70,000 per 'gunta' applying the relevant factors like: the location of the land, its potentiality, the rate at which adjoining lands were sold a few months before, the condition of the undeveloped lands and expenditure required to develop it for the project.

Chargesheet to file against MES leader Sambhaji Patil, MLA

The city police would soon file charge sheet against senior leader of Maharashtra Ekikaran Samithi Sambhaji L. Patil, MLA (Belgaum South) for his damning public utterances against the state government last year.

Mr. Patil had said that they would have taken out “funeral procession” of the Karnataka government if there were two more MLAs (supported by MES) on the occasion of the winter session of the State legislature here last year. The Kannada organisations and Opposition had take strong exception to the “anti-Karnataka” statements by the sitting MLA, following which the government had assured to take action.

Police Commissioner S. Ravi told The Hindu here on Friday that a case under Section 153A of IPC was already registered against Mr. Patil but the investigations could not be complemented for want of sanction to file chargesheet against the sitting MLA. Now that the Speaker of the legislative assembly and sanctioned for prosecution, the chargesheet would be filed before the court soon. The investigations into the matter had already been completed, he said.

Case against Marathi newspaper

Meanwhile, the police have taken up investigation into the allegedly provocative reports of “Tarun Bharat”, a popular Marathi daily newspaper published from Belagavi, Goa and other centres in Maharashtra following a complaint registered with the Khade Bazaar Police Station about a month ago, Mr. Ravi said.

The police have registered a case against the Editor and Owner of the newspaper under Section 153A of IPC following a complaint from one Satish Basappa, a resident of Gokak town. He has alleged that the newspaper had published provocative news reports threatening Kannada - Marathi linguistic harmony in Belagavi.

Pregnant cop posted to guard netas collapses

By Niranjan Kaggere, Bangalore Mirror Bureau | Dec 13, 2014, 04.00 AM IST

Hosting the winter session of the State Legislature, Belagavi district administration is on the verge of triggering a fresh controversy.

The administration's decision to deploy a pregnant police woman on security detail around Suvarna Vidhana Soudha has drawn criticism from the public.

The incident came to light when the 27-year-old Suma Bannala, seven months pregnant, collapsed on Friday morning near the main entrance of the legislature while on duty.

If the decision to deploy the woman cop from Shirahatti Police Station in Shirahatti taluk of Gadag district for security was not callous enough, it took one-and-a-half hours for an ambulance to arrive at the spot and transport Suma to hospital.

"She seemed to be all right when we left for duty at around 7:00 am, but around 10:00 am, she complained of giddiness and collapsed on the spot. There was no ambulance at the spot and we alerted the district hospital. She was given first-aid at the security post and later sent to hospital," explained a colleague of Suma who was also at the main gate during the incident.

Suma wasn't the only pregnant woman on security detail at the assembly. A senior cop at the gate said six to seven pregnant women have been working as security officers. Sources revealed that knowing the presence of pregnant women in the battalion, the health department maternity van "Nagu-Magu" was stationed near the gate where they were given treatment.

L Ravi, police commissioner, Belagavi confirmed the incident and told Bangalore Mirror that he too was shocked by the incident.

"It was indeed a tragedy and should not have happened. It is the duty of the local officers to check and recommend their names of the personnel on deputation. I have ordered that all pregnant women be relieved from duty with immediate effect. In the case of Suma too, I have ordered that she be relieved immediately after she is discharged from the hospital," he said.

Asked whether any action would be initiated against officials who deputed pregnant women for security duty, Ravi said, "I have written to all the Superintendents of Police of respective district to take necessary action."

Meanwhile, a senior duty doctor at Belagavi hospital told BM that Suma is doing well. ""We have put her on observation for 24-hours. She is doing fine and no major complications were diagnosed. It must be because of deficiency of iron or other nutrients that she must have experienced giddiness."

Rs 18,000 for an air ticket to Belagavi!

By Atul Chaturvedi, Bangalore Mirror Bureau | Dec 10, 2014, 04.00 AM IST


Believe it or not, a flight ticket to Belagavi, just more than 500 km away from Bengaluru, can cost you a staggering Rs 15,000-plus.

Though it's not clear why there is a sudden surge in airfares, sources say it could be because of the ongoing Assembly session in the border own. The rise in passenger traffic could have forced the cash-strapped SpiceJet flight to hike the fares, sources indicate.

The shooting airfare is burning the pockets of MLAs, ministers and officials who were to attend the Assembly session. "It was a last-minute call for us to board the flight and we were forced to do so as the time to book train or even bus has lapsed. We were forced to book the flight by paying Rs 18,000 on Monday," said one of the officials, who took a SpiceJet flight to Belagavi.

On Tuesday, the tickets were sold for Rs 15,000. Last checked, all the tickets to Belagavi till Friday have been sold out. SpiceJet operates two flights between Bengaluru and Belagavi. According to information available on its website, the Tuesday morning flight leaving at 8.50 am was sold out for Rs 9,800 while the evening flight leaving at 6.05 pm was sold out for Rs 15,500. Wednesday morning flight is also sold out for 11,000 while evening flight is sold out for Rs 7,800.

Maharashtra industrialists keen to set up units in Karnataka, says CM Siddaramaiah

PTI Dec 17, 2014, 06.07PM IST

BELAGAVI: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today invited industrialists from Maharashtra to set up their units in his state which will help it get an estimated amount of Rs 2,500 crore as investments.

He said as many as 1,486 industrialists from Kolhapur district of the neighbouring state had petitioned the government to allot them 1,726 acres of land to establish their units in the state, particularly Belagavi.

The proposed industrial units would create 20,000 jobs to people living in the state, Siddaramaiah in a statement here.

The Chief Minister said a delegation of some industrial associations based in Kolhapur visited the city and he had assured them of necessary infrastructure and a meeting with the industrial department soon.

"I have directed the Additional Chief Secretary to call for a meeting soon," he added.
