Residuary Andhra Pradesh expects an expenditure of close to 5 lac crores over a period of next 10 years for a new capital. Even if the above amoutn is too much, take only 10% of the same. That itself works out to 50,000 crores. So much money will be spent on infrastructure including roads, office buildings, hospitals etc etc. Had AP been one, the govt wouldnt be spending even 10,000 crores for vijayawada area r whichever area going to have capital. This is one advantage of state split.

Central govt promised to set up in each state one IIT, IIM & AIIMS type hospital. Had AP been one, they would have got one each of the above. now they will get two each. Same population but two each. Who is going to be benefited. Ofcourse people.

Since Hyderabad international airport has gone to telengana, I am sure central govt will expand Vizag, Tirupati airports and approve one new international airport for the new state capital. This is next advantage of state split. Also new capital would definitely have direct air connection to New Delhi and few other metros. This is possible due to split of AP else Vijayawada wont get direct flight service to New Delhi, Bombay etc

South Central Railway HQ is at hyderabad which is now part of telengana. So in the coming years, i expect a new railway zone with HQtrs at Waltair ( Vizag ) or at vijayawada will come up. New state capital will have direct trains to various metros which wouldnt have happened had AP remained one.

RBI & NABARD have one office each in every state. Now they will have to open an office in the residual AP. Apart from the above, LIC, GIC etc will set up their regional office for the new state. All the above are going to generate employment directly as well as indirectly.

All the above shows that split is going to help the people in one way or other. So why not TN be split and south TN become a separate state with madurai as capital?

certainly,separate statehood of South Tamilnadu with Madurai as the capital is most justified and is the need of the hour. how long have we been demanding and struggling for better growth and development and yet been continuously ignored and betrayed. why should we crave to the SG / CG authorities ,when every other facility is going to come down , with secession. people of Madurai have had enough mistreatment at the hands of the successive SG/ CG and nothing has ever changed. so let us create awareness, sensitize public for a separate statehood. this is the only lasting solution to our woes.

Through emails and postings, I am creating awareness among the educated people that separate state for south TN is the solution for development of the region. We will continue to do the same. It will take time. No problem. I am hopeful and confident that we will get it one day and wish & pray that day is not far away

More students turn to entrepreneurship


Entrepreneurship is the buzz word in many engineering colleges in Madurai and a few colleges in the southern districts, thanks to the improving awareness among students and authorities. Other reasons are the incubation environment provided by non-profit organisations and angel investors' network that are increasingly encouraging students to become entrepreneurs. Authorities of colleges say the decreasing number of companies and intake numbers in campus recruitment also encourage students to think about starting their own companies.

For instance, around 20% of the students in Pandian Saraswathi Yadav Engineering College are involved in developing their own ideas of a start-up. Over the last two years, a large number of students have taken to developing their own business ideas. They are inspired by their seniors who have already proved to be successful entrepreneurs. Many students get ready with their business ideas by the time they complete their course.

S P Varadarajan, managing director of the college said, "Engineering students from this region lack communication and soft skills which are needed to get selected in campus recruitment. But the students are sincere and hardworking. They are good at developing ideas. The on-campus recruitment in the last two years was also not encouraging. The support of agencies like Native Lead helps students take up entrepreneurship. In fact, 20% of our students want to start their own business."

Similarly, many colleges help the students by setting up entrepreneurship development and incubation cells. Organisations like Indian Angel Network which provides financial support for sound business ideas and agencies have come as a boon for them.

N Suresh Kumar, principal, Velammal College of Engineering and Technology said, "Many of our students are into developing business ideas. Some of the ideas are in the final stages of starting up into a business. The students are willing to innovate and convert them into start ups. However, very few students receive support from their families. In our college, we have a centre for innovation and product development which helps the students."

"There is a lot of sore scope in the southern districts. More colleges can come forward to encourage the students," said R Sivarajah of Native Lead.

There seems to be an inherent reluctance , hesitation and retardation even amongst the native businessmen , top traders and industrialists of Madurai to start new industrial / manufacturing ventures here at our own turf of Madurai. this is simply because this region has long been devoid of industrial culture , due to lack of interest , neglect and apathy by the SG AND CG successively. a new threat has been posed by the "Gangaikondan' industrial estate which is poaching upon even the scarcest industries located at Madurai. This stems from a clever strategem by the SG to divide the people of south Tamilnadu and hold Madurai back in industrial development. This disastrous attrition sholuld be stopped at all costs.

TN must set up industrial units in backward regions, says study

Despite the perceptible industrial growth registered in the State, a lopsided development is observed in the distribution of industrial units across the districts, according to the Annual Survey of Industries. It also said stagnation is noticed in the share of manufacturing in gross State domestic product over a period of time.

Dispersal of units
To overcome the problem, dispersal of industrial units to backward regions, especially in Southern districts is imperative, according to an economic appraisal for Tamil Nadu done for 2011-12 to 2013-14 by the Department of Evaluation and Applied Research.

Tamil Nadu is likely to witness an investment of nearly ₹30,000 crore in 2013-14.

This is a marginal increase over last financial year when the State signed memorandum of understanding for projects providing direct employment to 1.46 lakh with a total investment of ₹26,625 crore.

The Annual Survey of Industries (2011-12) released by the Central Statistics Organisation revealed that Tamil Nadu, with 36,996 factories and 19.41 lakh persons engaged in registered manufacturing industrial units, occupied the first position among major industrial States.

In terms of other industrial parameters such as fixed capital (₹1.61 lakh crore), productive capital (₹2.11 lakh crore) and gross value of output (₹6.08 lakh crore), Tamil Nadu occupied the third place. In net value added (₹76,179 crore), the State ranked fourth, the survey said.

TN tops in LIs
According to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Tamil Nadu occupied first rank with regard to issue of letter of intents and direct industrial licenses (874) with more employment opportunities (1.52 lakh) between 1991 and 2013. In terms of proposed investment, Tamil Nadu occupied the fourth position (₹14,328 crore).

As of 2012- 13, the micro small and medium enterprises, with 8.5 lakh registered units and an investment of ₹48,190 crore provided employment opportunity to 58.53 lakh persons and the value of output stood at ₹1.84 lakh crore, the report said.

Yes in effect "Tamilnadu " excepting the South tops the country in terms of industrial growth and outputs. As far as the industries / manufacturing sectors are concerned , they are confined principally in Chennai, coimbatore , Hosur and to some extent in Trichy. Both the SG and CG have categorised Madurai and down South as industrially-hostile / sick regions and have confined the native population there only as dumb vote banks . they even dissuade setting up of industries there, while a substantial number of youngsters from south Tamilnadu, toil drearily for enriching the Software giants , construction industry magnates, industry scions at the megapolis Chennai and a lesser coimbatore. . after all where else can they get a cheap army of labourers , toiling masses? so they will never let us develop. Only solution-- separate statehood perhaps !

There appeared a shocking report in a popular Tamil weekly about the shocking upsurge in casteism , casteist politics, and vicious sectarian / communal violence , in the Southern Districts of Tamilnadu, in the recent four years. What is really concerning is its prevelance even among the school children aged from 10- 18 years. Reason being the rampant unemployment / underenmployment / deprivation of livelihood and lack of industries in This part of Tamilnadu. Earlier in 1997 there was a severe spate of casteist / communal clashes here and Justice Ratnavel Pandian recommended industrial growth and development of southern districts of Tamilandu as the only remedy. Even after 17 years and change of regimes , the State Government is depriving and neglecting the South , much to the detriment . To get rid of this insensitivity and begging with the SG , THIS REGION must secede from the rest of Tamilandu.

French tyre major Michelin and TVS Srichakra have inked a pact for manufacturing two-wheeler tyres at a new unit within the Indian firm's existing plant in Madurai in Tamil Nadu.

As per the agreement, "products designed by Michelin for the Indian market will be manufactured by TVS Srichakra at this new plant under the Michelin brand name", TVS Srichakra said in filing to the BSE.

"In order to meet the growing demand for its two-wheeler tyres in India, Michelin has entered into an agreement with the company for setting up a new manufacturing facility within its existing plant in Madurai," it added.

However, the company, which is a part of the TVS Group, did not disclose the financial details.

The TVS Madurai facility, with an annual capacity of 3.6 million tyres, will produce bias product ranges for both Michelin as well as some tyres from TVS's product range of two wheeler tyres.

TVS Srichakra sells its products in the domestic market under the 'TVS Tyres' brand. It markets tyres in the overseas markets under the 'Eurogrip' brand.

The company's shares closed at Rs 1,649.25, up 0.32 per cent, on the BSE.
