Lend us a helping hand, Leather Industry urges Government

Lend us a helping hand, Leather Industry urges Government

Vellore accounts for 30 per cent of leather exports in the country and stakeholders want the government to play a bigger role in improving the sector.— File Photo: D.Gopalakrishnan
The leather industry in Vellore district is one of the largest in the country, and it is looking to the State government for help with resources and give a boost to the infrastructure.
Areas in Vellore district, particularly Ranipet, Melvisharam, Ambur and Vaniyambadi, are home to hundreds of leather manufacturing units. Nationally, if the whole State accounts for 45 per cent of leather exports, Vellore’s share stands at 30 per cent, according to M. Rafeeque Ahmed, chairman of Council for Leather Exports.
“When it comes to leather exports, Vellore is the largest contributing district. One of the biggest problems faced by the sector here is environment related. In many States, the government contributes to enable leather industries to adopt and implement a zero-liquid discharge system,” he says.
While industries get funding from the Centre for the implementation of the system, the Tamil Nadu government, Mr. Ahmed says, should contribute funds for bringing in a permanent solution.
Another crucial requirement for the leather sector is continuous power supply. To boost exports, the State government should intervene and get the Chennai Port-Maduravoyal elevated expressway built fast, he adds.
“The works have been stalled for nearly five years. If this is completed, there will be 24-hour movement of container lorries. Presently, lorries are allowed into the port after 10 p.m. and this is leading to queuing of vehicles. The project will breathe life into the port.”
Water shortage
S. Faiyaz Ahmed, honorary secretary of Ambur Tanners Association, also insists that the government should invest in the sector. “We are facing a water shortage in Vellore. We recycle processed water and reuse it. Currently, we are able to recycle 70 per cent water, and want to take this to 90 per cent. This requires a lot of investment, and we need the State government’s investment to take this forward.”
Of the total exports, Vellore alone accounts for Rs. 5,000-Rs. 6000 crore worth of products.
“Many foreigners visit places such as Ranipet, Ambur and Vaniyambadi. The municipalities do not have sewage treatment plants and sewage overflows onto the roads in many areas, and this does not give a good impression,” he says. The government, Mr. Faiyaz Ahmed adds, should provide special attention for towns that generate employment and foreign exchange and establish proper infrastructure such as STPs and roads.
According to him, the town of Ambur contributes Rs. 14 crore annually to the Employees’ State Insurance Scheme. But, the people here do not get to enjoy the benefits.
“Only two ESI hospitals in the State — at Chennai and Salem — performed major surgeries,” he points out. “The ESI dispensary at Ambur should be upgraded and equipped to perform major surgeries.”

Fleshing Energy by Lian Chawii of Down To Earth

Tanneries in Tamil Nadu now use the fleshings produced by them to generate electricity published on Oct 31, 2001 | From the print edition - http://www.downtoearth.org.in/node/17142

THE tanneries in India have a reputation that they can do without. In Vellore, Tamil Nadu, the tanneries are working to save their reputation by generating green electricity . They have set up a biomethanation plant which uses the fleshings produced by them to generate electricity for its common effluent treatment plant (CETP). By installing the plant the tannery has been able to do two things -- one, reduce the stench of putrefaction and pollution that the fleshings used to produce, and two, generate electricity from waste.
In India, there are around 3,000 tanneries and more than one third of them are located in Tamil Nadu. These tanneries, mainly concentrated in Melvisharam, process 300,000 tonnes of hide and skin per year and generate around 140 tonnes of fleshing per day. Fleshings are the flesh scrap generated during the process of conversion of skins and hides into leather. With proper means of disposal absent, these fleshing -- a health hazard -- are often thrown indiscriminately, creating an obnoxious smell and an unsightly appearance.
Earlier, the fleshings were used to manufacture glue, but the market for it declined with the emergence of synthetic glue. They were then disposed in landfills, but this contaminated the groundwater, causing the total dissolved solids in groundwater to go as high as 4,900 mg per litre in certain areas, which is about ten times beyond the permissible level. Incineration too had its own problems. "The quantity was too large to manage, it gave an obnoxious odour," says Alwar Ramanujam, assistant director, department of environmental technology at the Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI) in Chennai.
But with the biomethanation plant in place, the people living in the tanneries' vicinity will be able to live in a less polluted environment. The capital cost of the plant is Rs 1.57 crore. The Union ministry of non-conventional energy sources has paid 60 per cent of it, with United Nations Industrial development Organisation providing another 17.5 per cent. The Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency and other beneficiaries have met the remaining cost. "The concept was new to India, so everyone was apprehensive in the beginning," says Ramanujan.
The biomethanation plant, which began operation in January 2000, is designed by a French engineer, Michel Aloy and maintained by around 15 tanneries with the technical assistance from CLRI . It has two digesters of 130 cubic metre capacity and is designed to process five tonnes of waste per day -- three tonnes of fleshings and two tonnes of primary sludge from the treatment plant. The fleshings and other solids are collected daily by trucks from the tanneries and deposited at the plant. The fleshings are then minced to peices of about six micron diameter and then mixed with the primary sludge. After it is homogenised, the mixture is fed into a feed chamber.
The primary sludge from the CETP , which contains 90 per cent liquid, is used to run the plant, thus solving the need to use large quantities of clean water. Operating a biogas plant usually requires equal amount of water and fleshing. "Fortunately, the fleshings also contain around 80 per cent liquid," says P A Shanmugan, senior scientist at CLRI .
From the feed chamber, the substrates are transferred to the first digester. It takes 26 days to fill both the digesters, after which five cubic metres of the substrate is taken out from the second digester and a similar amount is added to the first digester. The fleshings are retained in the digester for 26 days. Biological process then takes place inside the digester at 32-34 C. The bacteria converts organic pollutant to methane. A safety valve releases the gases produced. Apart from lime, which is used to neutralise the acidic content of the flesh, no chemicals are used. The remaining scum is taken out by a centrifugal pump, which separates the solids from the liquid, from the top of the digester. The solid material is then directed back to the bottom of the digester.
The plant generates around 312 cubic metres of gas and 1,200 kwh of power daily, out of which 250 kwh is used to operate the plant. The remaining 950 kwh is used to meet the partial requirement of the CETP . According to Shanmugan, the CETP consumes 7,500 kwh of energy per day.
Though there are around 36 tanneries in the locality that generate a total of around 12-13 tonnes of fleshings per day, the plant can take only upto five tonnes right now. But plans are afoot to set up more on the same lines.

CPI(M) takes out ‘save Palar’ march - Alleges politician-mafia nexus in plundering river sands

CPI (M) activists took out a 13-km march from Walajapet to Mel Visharam on Thursday, urging the government to protect the river Palar from sand-mining.
Leading the march from Walajapet, G. Ramakrishnan, State secretary of the party, said that exploitation of sand deposits was rampant ever since the government began quarrying activities in the State in 2003. It was continuing unabated through successive the AIADMK and DMK regimes. “The Madras High Court ordered not to engage earth movers to scoop sand from rivers and restricted the miners from going beyond three feet deep. But they go even up to 30 feet deep. Politician-sand mafia nexus became so notorious that government officials and policemen who took action were attacked or killed. ” he said.
The sand mafia not only exploits river sand but also exploits consumers by slapping exorbitant price on sand loads, Mr. Ramakrishnan said Addressing the volunteers participating in the march, N.Gunasekaran, State secretariat member of the party, said that five lakh families belonging to five districts including Vellore and Tiruvannamalai depend on the Palar for their livelihood. “However, the river is not merely a livelihood source; it is a historic monument; an identity of Tamil civilisation and pivot of its long culture. The government’s erroneous policy was responsible for the river’s present sorry state. The murder of police constable Kanagaraj while attempting to stop a vehicle from smuggling sand is a pointer to an impending disaster,” Mr.Gunasekaran observed.
The marchers also wanted action against pollution of the Palar by industrial effluents and wanted eviction of encroachments from the river. A.Narayanan, district secretary of the party, Thinapuratchi, an activist of Joint Committee for Palar Protection and former MLA Hasan were among the participants.

How to get a Ration Card?

A message from Aadil in the chat box brought my attention on important issues like Ration Card. I did a small search to gather information about it and landed my thoughts to explain two things: First - about ration card with its need, second - How to get the ration card……procedure to get ration card. I hope this information is helpful to our community. In case, of error, please give your valuable comment / feedback for corrections.
What is a Ration Card and why is it needed?
A Ration Card is a document issued under an order or authority of the State Government, as per the Public Distribution System, for the purchase of essential commodities from fair price shops. State Governments issue distinctive Ration Cards to Above Poverty Line, Below Poverty Line and Antyodaya families and conduct periodical review and checking of Ration Cards.
A Ration Card is a very useful document for us as it helps save money by aiding in the procurement of essential commodities at a subsidized rate. It has also become an important tool of identification now-a-days. You may need to produce a copy of your Ration Card as proof of identification when applying for other documents like Domicile Certificate, for inclusion of your name in the Electoral Rolls, etc.
For the purpose of categorization of cardholders under Public Distribution System, the Government of Tamil Nadu have prescribed two colour cards viz., Pink and Yellow. The Pink Colour cardholders will be entitled to rice and other essential commodities at prices as fixed by the Government from time to time. The Yellow Colour cardholders would draw their rations other than rice based on options. Those who opt out of rice can draw additional quantity of sugar or kerosene as the case may be, in lieu of rice at prices as fixed by the Government from time to time.
What you need to do to obtain a Ration Card
1. Get the application form from Zonal PDS Office or Download here
2. Fill the form with all the details with your passport size photograph.
3. Deposit it at in our Zonal PDS Office (Walaja) and get a form for applying the card.

There will be turnaround in IT job prospects: FICCI chief

VELLORE: There will be a huge turnaround in employment prospects for the engineers in the Information Technology (IT) field soon, thanks to the ambitious target set by the Manufacturers Association for Information Technology (MAIT), according to M. Rafeeque Ahmed, president, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Tamil Nadu State Council.
Addressing the 11th College Day celebrations of the C. Abdul Hakeem College of Engineering and Technology (CAHCET) at Melvisharam on Monday, Mr. Rafeeque Ahmed said that MAIT had set a target for the government to create a vibrant domestic IT market with 500 million Internet users as against the present 55 million, 100 million broadband connections as against the present five million, and 100 million connective devices by 2012.
The 11th Plan, he said, has envisaged a huge outlay for infrastructure development in the country to make it a developed country. Great stress is being laid on development of world-class highways, ports, railways and communication facilities. With the government committed to encourage these programmes on a public-private partnership basis, youth graduating from other branches of engineering too will have opportunities for gainful employment, he said.
Referring to the decline in campus recruitment by the IT industry, the FICCI State president said that recent developments in the country’s economy, though not on the same scale as previous years, has inbuilt potential as against the developed countries. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which was growing at the rate of around nine percent per annum since the past four or five years, is estimated to record a growth rate of about seven percent in 2009, next only to that of China.
“Though our country may not be immune to the fallout of the global financial crisis, it is likely to fare better than the other developing countries thanks to its domestic market and less reliance on exports”. No doubt the country might miss the overall export target of U.S. $ 170 billion for the leather trade for the current financial year, but experts such as C. Rangarajan, former chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council predicted that there would be a turnaround in the economy by September 2009. The slowdown in economy also provided opportunities to the students to shape themselves to meet future requirements, he said.
M. Mohamed Hashim, Chairman, K.H. Foundation, Melvisharam and former chairman of the Council for Leather Exports, and P.A. Ibrahim, Chairman, P.A. College of Engineering, Mangalore spoke.

How to get HDFC Bank services?

How to get HDFC Bank services?

People feel difficult to get information related to their needs and particular to Banking Services.

Islamiah Girls Higher Secondary School

Islamiah Girls Higher Secondary School

It was in the year 1946 that this school had its origin as an Elementary School, due to the great endeavours of the members of Melivisharam Muslim Educational Society, Melvisharam. In those days, the need for a good and efficient Muslim School, that can give secular and religious education to girls was keenly felt in the locality. Then the School was named as Isalamiah Junior Basic School, Melvisharam. It was recognized by the Government of Madras in 1954.

Under the able guidance of late Janab V Hajee Khaleelur Rahman Sahib, the then President, M.M.E.S, Janab S.M. Hajee Abdul Jameel Sahib, the then Secretary and later Janab A. Ahmed Basha Sahib, M.A., the then Correspondent, the school has grown steadily.

It was in the year 1966, that the sixth Standard was added and in 1968 the school became a Middle School.Then in the year 1973, it became a full-fledged High School and the first batch of students was presented for the SSLC Public Examination in March 1976 and from that day the school has been making steady progress.

By the grace of Allah and solid support of then President, Hajee S.M Jameel Sahib and then Correspondent Hajee, S. Zafar Ahmed sahib and other important members of the committee, the school overcame every difficulty and today it stands on firm footing.

In 1985, the school was shifted to its newly constructed permanent building and his occasion was celebrated in a grand manner. Dignitaries like Thiru C. Aranganayagam, Janab Y.S.M. Yusuff Sahib, the then Minister of Education and Irrigation Thiru T. Palani, T Kadirvelan, the M.L.A as on that day.

In the same year, the school was upgraded to a Higher Secondary School and the first batch of the student appeared for the public examination in April 1987 and secured 90% result.
