Budget may not remove curbs on sugar industry



Even as the Economic Survey has pitched for decontrol of the sugar sector, there are indications that the decision may not be part of the Union Budget to be presented by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Thursday.

“Announcing the removal of levy and imposing an additional excise duty to enable the Government to finance the sugar purchases for the public distribution system as part of the Budget may not be politically expedient. It will give the Opposition just the right handle to dub the Budget as anti-people,” sources in the know said.

According to them, the decision to decontrol may be taken up separately by the Union Cabinet after the Budget, possibly next week.

The Finance Ministry has reportedly expressed concern over the potential rise in sugar prices if the release mechanism were to be scrapped and an additional excise duty is imposed on the sweetener.

Food Minister K.V. Thomas is expected to address the Finance Ministry’s concerns on the issue and consultations were likely to begin after the Budget.

The Survey pointed out that the Indian sugar sector suffered from “policy inconsistency and unpredictability”. The sugar industry in India is over-regulated and prone to cyclicality due to price interventions. Stating that a greater play of market forces would provide better prices and serve the interests of all stakeholders, the Survey suggested the “Government should come into picture only in situations where absolutely necessary”.

The export bans and controls could be replaced with small variable external tariffs to stabilise prices. “A stable, predictable and consistent policy reforms have to be brought about in a fiscally neutral manner and issues considered for implementation in a phased manner,” it said.

The Rangarajan Committee had recommended removal of levy sugar system and scrap the regulated release mechanism for the open market sale. It had also suggested phasing out cane reservation area and dispensing with minimum distance criteria between mills, stable trade policy, no quantitative or movement restrictions on by-products such as molasses and ethanol, besides dispensing with compulsory jute packing.

INDUSTRY UPDATES ON 25TH FEB, 2013

As much as four million tonnes rice have been exported till date from the old (anchorage) port here after the lifting of ban on non-basmati rice exports, in spite of the poor condition of roads and other infrastructure, and it could have been much more, with better facilities, according to local rice exporters and traders.



They expressed the opinion at a one-day seminar on strategic export management, organised by the Cocanada Chamber of Commerce in association with the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) here.



D. Surya Rao, President of the chamber, said the approach roads to the old port were in a very poor shape and there was also acute paucity of jetties at the wharf to expedite rice exports. As a result, the trade was paying huge demurrages.



He said the issue should be addressed immediately, as it would worsen in the monsoon season. Road works at least should be completed before that.

S.B.S. Reddy, Joint Director-General of Foreign Trade, said the economic recession in the West had adversely affected our exports and the current year’s target of $345 billion may not be achieved and in fact the country may not even touch last year’s export level of $303 billion.



“Therefore, the export performance of Kakinada is very laudable in these recessionary times. The State Government, in charge of the port, would have to address the infrastructural problems.



But we will do everything possible to make it easy for the exporters procedurally,” he promised.



When asked about the service tax on rice exports, he said the exporters could claim refund from the department.



East Godavari Collector Neetu Prasad said earlier a proposal had been sent to the State Government seeking Rs 5 crore for improvement of approach roads to the port, but it had not been sanctioned.



She asked the port officials to prepare a fresh proposal for Rs 30 crore for the purpose and she would try to secure the funds from the State or Union Government under various schemes.



K.R Nath of Indus Business Academy (Bangalore), K. Unnikrishnan, Director FIEO, and several exporters addressed the open house organised on the occasion.







Kolkata Port Trust gets 3 bids for cargo handling at 2 key Haldia berths





Kolkata, Jan. 12:


Kandla Port commissions RAS Infraport-operated berth 13





Kandla Port commissions RAS Infraport-operated berth 13




RAS Infraport Pvt. Ltd inaugurated Berth No. 13 at Kandla Port in the presence of Dr (Ms) Nimaben Acharya, Member of Gujarat Legislative Assembly, Dr P. D. Vaghela, IAS, Chairman of Kandla Port Trust (KPT) and Mr Navneet Goel, Commissioner of Customs, Kandla on February 18. Commercial operations have commenced at the facility. This is the first multi-purpose cargo berth developed through public-private partnership (PPP), by RAS Infraport with KPT. Before its commissioning, the Port had 12 berths, of which 10 were dedicated to general dry cargo and two to containers. It presently handles 28 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo. With the commencement of operations at berth 13 (of 5 million tonnes capacity), throughput is expected to increase to 33 million tonnes. RAS Infraport was awarded the concession—of 30 years, including two years for construction—to develop berth 13 on build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis. It completed the project about a month ahead of schedule, a rare feat in these difficult economic times.



The berth is 300 metres long and 55 metres wide with a back-up area of 21.6 hectares, and capable of handling vessels up to 75,000 DWT. It is equipped with two Liebherr mobile harbour cranes LHM 550, each of 140-tonne capacity. The cargo that will be handled at the berth includes coal, food grains, timber, DOC, sugar, salt, steel, minerals, etc. The company plans to achieve a throughput of four million tonnes in the first year of operation. With the berth having discharge capability of up to 40,000 tonnes a day, Kandla Port is all geared up to set new benchmarks in cargo handling and evacuation. Mr Maulin Acharya, Chairman of the group, in the presence of Mr. Kamlesh Patel, MD of RAS Infraport, Mr. Mukesh Acharya, Mr Narendra Sinh Rana and Mr Ashok Dudi, thanked all the individuals and organisations involved in the project for facilitating its completion in record time. He expressed confidence that the commissioning of the new berth would bring more laurels to Kandla Port.



Note: Mv. Yu long ling will be the first vessel which will be berthing today at cj 13 (ras infraport ltd). The scale of rates is not yet finalised. Will keep you updated on the same when it is finalised.

EEDI and SEEMP clarifications on applicability



The Maritime Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted technical and operational measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions from the international shipping. Through resolution MEPC.203(62) the IMO has adopted the following measures:

 Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI);
 Energy Efficiency Operational Index (EEOI); and
 Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP).


APPLICABILITY

the applicability of the above mentioned technical and operational measures
that came in force on January 1, 2013.
The EEDI will apply to new ships of 400 gross tonnage and above (except those with diesel-electric, turbine or hybrid propulsion systems) as outlined below:


 For which the building contract is placed on or after January 1, 2013;
 In the absence of a building contract, the keel of which is laid or which is at a similar stage of
construction on or after July 1, 2013; and
 The delivery of which is on or after July 1, 2015.


The Administration may choose to waive the requirement of EEDI up to 4 years after each of the above dates.
It is important to note that EEDI will also apply to ship that undergo a “major conversion” as defined in resolution MEPC.203(62).
An Energy Efficiency Certificate (IEEC) shall be issued for both new and existing ships of 400 gross tonnage and above.
