Jamnagar News First reported the GI Tag initiative, Almost a year back we found that Jamnagar Bandhani may get Jamnagar GEO Tagging.

Now taking some firm steps, Chennai-based Geographical Indication (GI) Registry has decided to clean off its old files and already granted brand new GI certificates for high value brands. These brands includes names like 'Tirupati Ladu', 'Banarasi Sarees' and 'Goan Feni'.


Jamnagar is not behind either, India's most valued company Reliance Industries had also requested for registeration of GI Tag for its five products
  • Jamnagar Petrol
  • Jamnagar Fuel
  • Jamnagar LPG
  • Jamnagar Diesel
  • Krishra Godavari Gas
These are the products that are produced from RIL's Jamnagar refinery and Krishna Godavari basin. Later, RIL withdrew its applications, many says that this is because RIL has plans to have the KG GAS used in Lyondellbasell Reliance Refinery.

Fake Note racket busted by Shopkeepers

A Shopkeepers' awareness helped unearth giant fake currency racket in Jamnagar. A racket with Pakistani connection was unearthed few days ago.

Shopkeepers will help local police by installing of machines to identify fake notes and hire employees that can check the authenticity of notes coming to their counters. Once found they can inform police , in effect, the shopkeepers will now call the police, rather than the customer the next time they come across a fake note.

The 800-member association has now asked all members to prominently display an RBI guideline in their premises as well.

It is well noted that recent 1000 rs fake notes can not be be detected by machines, it can only be detected by bare hands.

Hall of Shame for JMC

JMC recently decided to increase the city limits to 101 KM from existing 68 KM, JMC thought of adding few nearby small villages around Jamnagar to increase the area , ofcourse this is backed by lobby of builders who wanted to grab lucrative land and get costly benefits from it..

However JMC hit a little snag when around 6,000 villagers gathered near Lal Bunglow to oppose the move.
Sarpanch's from villages like Dhuvav, Vibhapar, nawa-Nagna, Juna-Nagna, Khimaliya, Theba, Dared, Khimrana, Khijadiya, KanSumra, Naghedi, Morkanda, Dhinchda, hapa, Gordhanpar and chela came together and submitted letter to RDC.

Crank caller arrested from train.

Rajkot City picked up the son of a Jamnagar police constable, who traveling in a train, for allegedly making hoax call for bombs.

A factory owner from Patan, received a call on his cell phone on Tuesday night. The caller asked: 'What happened about the bombs that were planted in Rajkot?' and the phone got disconnected. This information made Rajkot police start a search operation just to find that it was a hoax call.

Police traced the caller as Rahul Dahiya, a medical student. The calls were traced to a train going towards Ranchi. Railway police, who were alerted, picked up Dahiya near Agra.

Donated eyes left untended for 22 days


This incident added an insult to injury for G.G. (Irwin) Hospital, just 11 days after the hospital got name in TV for a perfect wrong reason, branding and parading an HIV+ woman.

Strange things comes to picture as the mystery unfolds, Kutchhi Visha Oshwal Jain Mahajan in Bhuj regularly donates eyes to GG Hospital and many other in Saurashtra-Kutch for medical reasons, these eyes normally reach through domestic courier. This time the hospital staff did not came to collect the parcels.

A local courier operator who has been transporting these consignments regularly says that the consignment was sent on June 6. But, no one from the ophthalmology department of GG hospital came to take delivery of the parcels.

Later the delivery man delivered the nine parcels at 6 pm on Tuesday at the registration counter of the GG Hospital.

As expected, hospital Superintendent of GG hospital Dr BD Gupta puts blame on the organization that sends the eyes, saying that they did not communicate properly and the deliveryman who should have taken receipt.

Barda Sanctury - Mining poses threat

There was a time when Gujarat State Govt wished to shift Asiatic Lions from Gir National Sanctuary to Barda wildlife sanctuary in Jamnagar.

Information sought by RTI reveals mining activities near Barda area.

21 permissions for mining around the forest area have been granted since 2002, many NOC are issued from Forest Dept as well. There are 38 additional requests that are pending for the licenses to mine in and around Barda sanctuary. Obviously, forest dept are denied the claim categorically. Out of many licenses few were also renewed on bases of NOC from forest Dept.

Barda sanctuary is spread over 190 sq km falling in Jamnagar and Porbandar districts. According to Wildlife Protection Act (1972), mining is not permissible in 5 km periphery of the sanctuary.

Water Crisis - worsening

After many years, Jamnagar Citizens will see a sight long forgotten - water tankers.

Delayed monsoon is draging reserviour levels to new lows and many people in the region will have to rely on water supplied through tankers if the monsoon gets delayed by a week or more. Of 109 / 120 reservoirs in Saurashtra-Kutch have hit rock bottom or are on the verge of it.

Cities like Jamnagar and Bhuj cities will need to look for alternative arrangements like supplying underground water to the residents through tanker services to tide over the situation.

The situation is worst in Jamnagar as only 6.31 per cent of the quantum is left in the 30 dams in Jamnagar. Over 55 villages in the district has already started water supply through tankers. This number is likely to go up, if rains don't come within a week or so.
