NATIONAL - Update 4 U6rtilisersfertilirtilisesersLimits on purchase of fePlantation sector in Southern India saidthat the Ministry of Chemicals &Fertiliser’s proposed decision toimplement a maximum limit for purchaseof subsidized fertilizers. The Ministry hasproposed the limit be fixed at 200 bagsper month per plantation.The United Planters’ Association ofSouthern India (UPASI) president,Prashant Bhansali said that the limitprescribed is very low for the plantationsector. The size and production of theplantation has to be taken into account.The allocation will have to be on a perhectare basis rather than per plantation,as the size of plantations ranges from afew hectares to a few thousandhectares. Each hectare of plantationrequires from 2 bags to 4 bags per monthdepending on the land productivity. Anyreduction in the allotment of subsidisedfertiliser will adversely impact manygrowers and the production will drop inlarger plantations, if adequate fertiliseris not applied. Plantations require thefertiliser during certain months of theyear, depending on the rainfall, andtherefore will not be in a position to buyevery month. The limits, if any, will haveto be allotted on an annual basis. Theannual requirement of fertilizers variesfrom 24 bags per hectare to 48 bags perhectare. Entitlement should be based onland holdings and land area is a morepractical criteria.The arbitrary fixation of limits withouttaking into account practical criteria willadversely impact the competitiveness ofthe industry, especially when it is goingthrough a difficult phase due to the risein the cost of production on account ofhigh wages and input costs.The proposed restrictions will haveserious implications for the exportcompetitiveness of plantationcommodities and will deny level playingfield in the international market. TheDepartment Related ParliamentaryStanding Committee on Commerce in its102nd report had observed that the highcost of production in plantations wouldadversely affect price competitiveness inthe world market. Accordingly, theCommittee had recommended to theDepartment to ensure that fertilisersubsidy is available to growers and toengage the State Governments for timelyavailability of fertilizers. The proposedmeasures will no way help in preventingthe misuse of fertiliser but will put genuinegrowers of plantation crops into greatdifficulty and inconvenience and,therefore, it is not justifiable, said Upasipresident.Govt offers sops to buy new vehiclesIndia will offer tax breaks and financialincentives to encourage owners to scraptheir old vehicles as part of a policy thatseeks to promote the use of fuel-efficientand cleaner automobiles while drivingsales of new vehicles.The automobile industry has beendemanding a vehicle scrappage schemeto generate demand for new vehicles whichhas remained subdued for the past twoyears. Welcoming the scrappage policy,the Society of Indian AutomobileManufacturers (Siam) said in a note thatindustry body will work closely with the roadtransport and highways ministry on issuessuch as the best way forward to expeditetesting infrastructure in a sustainable andscalable manner and the possibility ofinitiating vehicle fitness testing much earlierin the life cycle of a private vehicle, as isdone in developed countries.Commercial vehicles older than 15 yearsand passenger vehicles more than 20 yearsold will have to be scrapped if they fail topass fitness and emission tests, accordingto the country’s first-ever vehicle scrappageprogramme. Owners who voluntarily scrapvehicles will earn a road tax rebate of 1525% and a waiver of registration fees onthe purchase of a new vehicle. Automakershave been encouraged to offer a 5%discount on the purchase of a new vehicleagainst a certificate of vehicle scrapping.The scrap value of old vehicles will fetchowners around 4-6% of the price of a newvehicle, according to the policy.The policy in the long run is expected toimprove the fuel efficiency of vehicles,boost localisation, increase theavailability of low-cost raw materials forindustries and increase the GST revenuefor the Indian govt. Phasing out of theold vehicles is expected to increase thedemand in the industry and the overallturnover of the auto industry wouldincrease by around .5.5 lakh crore fromthe current .4.5 lakh crore.Ministry of Road Transport and Highways(MoRTH) has confirmed that the rulesfor fitness tests and scrapping centreswill be notified by 1st October 2021.Mandatory fitness testing for heavycommercial vehicles will begin from 1stApril 2023, while the other categories ofvehicles will be mandated for fitnesstesting in a phased manner starting from1st June 2024.Nitin Gadkari, minister for roadtransport and highways, said the policywill help reduce vehicular pollution,increase demand for new, fuel-efficientvehicles and boost employment. Thenew policy does not have any penalprovisions to help protect low-incomefamilies that own older vehicles.Fitness centres will be established ina public-private-partnership model tocheck vehicles and this can create alot of jobs. Investments ofaround .10,000 crore will be requiredto set up such centres.Second Section - Rubber4U - 1st April 2021

The strategicplan is a continuation of Risda’s previousfive-year plan which ended last year andwas formulated in line with the 12thMalaysia Plan.According to a report, more idle rubberlands in the country have been recordeddue to declining number of rubber tappersand the unattractive prices of naturalrubber. While according to last year’sindustrial data, 63% or 682,914 hectareof rubber plantation in the country havebeen identified as abandoned as tappersstruggled to make decent returns duringthe pandemic.At a press conference, Rural DevelopmentMinister Datuk Dr Abdul Latiff Ahmad saidamong the initiatives formulated throughthe strategic plan is to encourage younggenerations to be involved in domesticagricultural production. We hope the newinitiatives introduced under Risda’s 20212025 strategic plan will help encourageyounger generations, especially thosefrom families who own rubber plantations,to continue working on their families’ lands.We want to promote Malaysia’s rubbercultivation and increase the localproduction given the high demand forrubber medical products by the healthcareindustry.The government has also increased theallocation for the rubber replantingprogramme. Risda also received anadditional allocation of RM15.7 millionto manage the plant’s disease,commonly known as pestalotiopsis.Risda Strategic Planning Model 20212025 is targeting seven key areas vizreplanted rubber plantation, increasedproductivity, farm commodity prices,human capital development, increasednumber of entrepreneur smallholders,higher household income and profitgrowth of Risda-owned companies.This year, the ministry has set asideRM410.8 million for Risda to implementa development programme involvingRM322.1 million for the smallholderrubber plantation area programme;RM58.7 million for productivityenhancement and smallholderdevelopment programmes; and RM30million for a new revenue developmentprogramme, said the minister.Think about pandemic situation, adapt and movealong with the technological trendRight time to change,ThinkofFutureMould your
