Brass Parts Industry Collapsing On Raised Import Tariffs

Brass Parts Industry leader asked for reduction in Customs tariff, what they got was increase in the tariffs.

This now lead to collapse of the only surviving native industry in Jamnagar.

Due to increase in Brass Part Industry raw material, more than 60 per cent of the units are closed.

Brass Part Industry in jamnagar employs nearly 1.5 lakh workers.

There are around 4,000  Brass / metal Part industry units in Jamnagar, almost 90 per cent of which runs on imported brass scrap mainly received from China.

These Brass Parts units are now in a shock when the Centre raised Customs duty by 567 dollars per metric ton on December 15, these is double the price of the earlier brass part import price, this also resulted in backlog of 300 brass scrap containers at the Kandla Port.

Brass parts industry in Jamnagar accounts for 80 % of the total brass components (electrical, automobile or sanitary) produced in India.

Thousands of many small Brass parts unit owners in Jamnagar are collapsing,
  earlier they used to earn 40-50 lakh per annum unit, now these units can not even touch mark of Rs 6-8 lakh.

Naturally this is way too insufficient.

If govt will not act soon, remaining Brass Parts unit may need to close as well.

Mukesh Ambani's New House

Updated : New Photo of Mukesh Ambani's Multi-Billion Dollar House


















Exterior

Antilla, the partially completed home of Mumbai-based petrochemicals giant Reliance Industries head Mukesh Ambani, will stand 27 stories high and is expected to cost $2 billion. Ambani, the fifth richest man in the world, his wife and three children currently live in a 22-story Mumbai tower the family has spent years remodeling and refashioning to meet its needs.

Lobby

Nine elevators dot the lobby floor: Two are designated for parking areas, three for guest quarters, two for the Ambani family residences and two for service. The lobby opens to numerous lounges, reception areas and powder rooms. Dual stairways lead from the lobby floor down to the ballroom, which is designed in an open layout with a two-story roof.

Ballroom

The most striking features of the Antilla ballroom are the crystal chandeliers that will take up approximately 80% of the ceiling. The silver stairways lead to a central landing, behind which two retractable doors can open to display works of art. There is also a stage for entertainment or speeches, with a projection screen behind it. A kitchen, about the same size as the ballroom itself, can service hundreds of guests.

Bathroom

One of Antilla's key design themes is the mix of lavish features seen in worldwide homes and elements that are distinctly Indian. The Gingko-leaf sink designs are a good example. Native to India, the leaves in the sinks are shaped in such a way that their stems guide water into the bowl created by the basket of the leaf.

Traditional Lounge

Ambani's home features countless lounges, offering Reliance Industries guests a quiet escape. Chandeliers and mirrors are a common feature of these rooms, as are finely woven Indian area rugs.

Modern Lounge

Each space and floor uses materials not seen anywhere else. The idea is that spaces will blend into one another, giving the impression of consistency and flow, while at the same time displaying different influences and traditions. This furniture, floors, lines and dark woods of this lounge have a more minimalist approach than the home's other lounges.

Entertainment Level

It's very common in large homes to have a theater or screening room, but usually they're just large projection screens with a few nice seats. The Ambani's theater is more like those seen in George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch or Frank Pritt's Portabello Estate--a full-fledged theater, indistinguishable from a cinema. A wine room, snack bar and entertaining space, including couches and tables, fill out the room.

Health Level

The indoor/outdoor health level features a lap pool and Jacuzzi that take in views of the city skyline, as well as lounge chairs shaded by trees. Yoga and dance studios, changing rooms for men and women, gyms and a solarium with a juice bar fill out the interior space. There are plans to include an ice room in the center space, where the Ambanis could sit on a hot Mumbai day to cool off in a man-made snow flurry.

Garage

The first six floors of the residence will be dedicated to parking for the Ambani family, guests and employees. Hanging vertical gardens dot the exterior. While they make for good decoration, their key function has to do with energy efficiency: The hydroponic plants, grown in liquid nutrient solutions instead of soil, lower the energy footprint of the home by absorbing heat and sunlight and providing shade that helps keep it cool.

Roof

The top floor features a covered, outdoor entertaining space with panoramic views of the Mumbai skyline as well as the Arabian Sea. On those days when it's too hot, or cold, an interior space with floor-to-ceiling windows provides the same luxury.

Pramod Kumar Jha is no more.

Pramod Kumar Jha is no more.

Pramod Kumar Jha was on life support systems in the ICU at Ahmadabad's Sterling Hospital, he was suffering from liver cirrhosis.

Lakhota Lake - Dismal Condition

Jamnagar citizens are famous of merry making, and may be they will be equally famous for neglecting their age old heritage, The Lakhota Fort.
This centuries old monument is in dismal condition due to negligence by local authority and Jamnagar residents.

Lakhota Fort and the Ranmal Lake were constructed two centuries ago by Jam Ranjitsinh. The Lakhota fort is constructed in the middle of Ranmal lake. After independence it was converted to museum. Semi-circular bastions, turrets, pavillion and many exquisite sculpture stored in the Lakhota fort also needs renovation.

The restoration project started of in 2005 but is at stale, authorities claim that un-availability of funds is the main reason. However if someone visit the Shravan fair at Pradarshan grounds, you can easily notice huge hoardings of City politicians, and in some cases mayor and deputy mayor as well. How come authority waste money for such publicity and deny funds for heritage which is the identity of the city.

Stall Vendors feel that the land around the Nageshwar area has loosen and not SAFE for entertainment rides, they are not bluffing entirely as last year two rides had to be shut down during "Shravan Mela" (Shravan fair). Also there are many ifs and buts quotted in the letter given to Commissioner.

Bandhani May Get GI Tag

There are some traditional fabrics which can stand apart even in today's hip-hop cultured dressing.

Perhaps the first name which comes in mind of a Gujarati lady will be "Bandhani".

With the name comes bright color, fine quality and a rich history of handmade Sarees, Jamnagar is famous for Tie-Die Bandhani, which is done by hands. this is a special art mastered by a few, the art is followed by generations and new vibrant colors and designs are added time by time.

Bandhani is not just a Saree, in parts of Kutch, Jamnagar and Rajasthan it is used as a turban or dupatta, modern ladies wear dress from Bandhani as its comfortable in hot season.

To save this exotic product, now Indian Textile ministry wants to brand the item with a location tag. Textile Ministry is working on a long list of 5,000 such items across India.

Govt. is working on a GI petition. If thats gets through, Bandhani makers will get a new life. As today there are many oppertunists who sell bogus Bandhani in the name of real one.

RPL - Refinery Expansion on Completion

Commissioning of Reliance Petroleum (RPL)'s refinery in Jamnagar special economic zone (SEZ) is being tracked not just by its 2 million shareholders and stock market experts, but by global energy analysts as well. Jamnagar Refinery project is on watchlist as the light sweet crude is getting costly day by day and India does not have much refining capacity to extract sulpher from crude oil. Jamnagar refinery has sound capacity to address this issue and hence can grown even if the global petro-refining demand diminishes.

Mukesh Ambani recently assured shareholders at the company's annual general meeting (AGM) last month, he says that the refinery is expected to be completed ahead of schedule.

The new expansion project also marks the success debut of Mukesh Ambani owened RIL's own dream refinery, this project will serve as an example for fast low capital cost, project execution and developing high complexity solutions in India.

However, there is tough competition in world as global refining capacity is increasing day by day.

Low Capital Cost: RPL's expanded refinery has total cost of around Rs 27,000 crore, i.e. around $6.5 billion, such similar-sized refinery elsewhere would cost around 13-14 bn USD.

Fast Project Execution: Commercial production in expansion will start in Sep-08. RPL has completed 94% commissioning and the main process units are about to be complete.

Hidden gem: RPL's hidden gem is its capacity to handle oil with high sulphur crude, Mukesh Ambani foresaw the crude crisis and had designed the plant so that it can handle oil with high sulphur crude, this bring cheaper oil to RPL and hence can increase operation margins. Not to mention the Tax benefits of the SEZ location of the refinery, all profits from RPL's first five year production are tax free and for next five years, I-T exemption will be 50%.
