For them, customer is God

Chief Executive Officer of Mumbai Dabbawalas' Association Pawan G. Agrawal speaking at a session organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry and Young Indians in Coimbatore on Friday.
“To a Mumbai dabbawala, the customer is not just the king but God,” said Pawan G. Agarwal, Chief Executive Officer of the Mumbai Dabbawalas' Association, here on Friday.
For more than an hour on Friday evening, industrialists, professionals and students in the packed hall of The Residency here were treated to an inspiring, thought-provoking and educative session on ethics in and commitment to work.
Mr. Agarwal made a presentation on “The Mumbai Dabbawalas” at a meeting organised by the Coimbatore Chapter of the Young Indians and the Confederation of Indian Industry.
Mr. Agarwal dwelt on the 120-year-old service by the dabbawalas in Mumbai, who number about 5,000 now, their daily work routine, uninterrupted service in delivering two lakh tiffin boxes every day and the recognition that the service continues to receive.
The presentation concluded with the audience, numbering more than 200, appreciating the service of the dabbawalas with a standing ovation.
The service of the dabbawalas started in 1890 and a Charitable Trust was established in 1956. The average literacy level of a dabbawala is Class VIII and the average monthly income about Rs. 10,000.
A dabbawala works for eight to nine hours a day, travels nearly 70 km with tiffin boxes totally weighing about 60 kg. And, they have not gone on strike for a single day.
Their main modes of transport are the local trains and bicycles. They are not aided by technology to remember the address and phone numbers of their customers. And, amazingly, their error rate is one in 16 million transactions. They collect the tiffin boxes from the customers' residence, deliver it at the work place, and return the empty tiffin boxes at the customers' house.
A strong organisation structure, precise coding system for the tiffin boxes (which started with coloured threads and now consists of a series of alphabet and numbers), and adherence to a code of conduct are some of the highlights of this organised service.
The dabbawalas are punctual, disciplined, and committed to work. They value customer satisfaction, follow work ethics, and have a positive attitude. They do not smoke or consume alcohol during work hours and do not take leave without prior notice, he said.
The Mumbai Dabbawalas have received Six Sigma recognition and ISO 9001:2000 certification. Prince Charles and Richard Branson (Chairman of Virgin Atlantic) have visited them. And, their success has been presented at several international forums

‘Mini' skyscrapers for Coimbatore

Though the real-estate market in Coimbatore is set to see nearly twice the number of apartment units entering the housing segment in the city next year, the industry remains unfazed about it causing any glut or demand stagnation. The residents of Coimbatore are also likely to see the skylines of the city being dotted with (mini) skyscrapers as almost 10-12 apartment projects of 8-14 floors in each block are likely to come up in the city next year which, however, is not likely to cause any easing of rates due to factors such as the need for more open spaces and increased construction cost.

Mr Rajesh B. Lund, Vice-President of the Tamil Nadu unit of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Associations of India (CREDAI) and Managing Director of Srivari Property Developers, Coimbatore, said the Coimbatore market annually absorbed about 2,000-3,000 units of two- and three-bedroom apartments. His expectation was that next year, 4,000-6,000 units would come into the market with majority of them catering to the ‘mid-segment' with up to 1,500 sq.ft in area and consisting of two- and three-bedrooms. The rates could be between Rs 2,700/sq.ft and Rs 4,000/sq.ft depending on the location but excluding prized areas such as Race Course, R. S. Puram and Saibaba Colony where the land price is much higher and space is scarce.

Coimbatore already has apartment complexes of up to 8-10 floors. But they will become more pronounced, thanks to the changes in the Development Control Rules (DCR) a few months ago and would come up chiefly off the arterial Avinashi road, Tiruchi road, Sathyamangalam road and Mettupalayam road. Most of the apartment complexes here would have 8-12 floors. The number of units would depend on the extent of land but builders would require a large area for such projects as they would require more open areas.

Mr Lund said his company had two projects on the drawing board — one in Vilankurichi having 10 floors, off Avinashi road, and the other on the Mettupalayam road having 12 floors. Mr Lund said the new DCR, which came into force in June this year, has allowed the builders to go for higher floors subject to certain norms, such as road width being more than 60 ft. This would allow for more open space and ‘breathing space' and more recreation area for the residents. In Coimbatore, a large number of apartment complexes are of G+3 floor type that cover nearly 60 per cent of the plot area.

But he ruled out cost of apartments in such skyscrapers coming down — citing factors such as higher construction cost due to the need to lay a stronger foundation, cost of conveying material, labour cost and the longer duration of construction that pushes up the financial cost of projects etc, apart from increasing land cost. While there may not be any price reduction due to higher floors being allowed, the builders may tweak the size of the apartments so that the overall purchase cost could be affordable. There were good contractors in the city capable of executing such large projects but the city has not yet reached the level of building genuine skyscrapers of 20 to 30 floors as in Mumbai.

He estimated that the high-rises being planned here would have an average built-up area of 50,000 sq.ft to 2 lakh sq.ft each and their USP was they would provide a better quality of life as living space would be more and at higher floors one may not need air-conditioners.

As done in Mumbai, would he charge extra for each higher floor beyond a level in his forthcoming project? Mr Lund said, “ideally we would like to charge (as in Mumbai) but we will address it at the time of bookings.”

No correction likely

Mr V.Mohan, Managing Director, Mayflower Enterprises Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore, who is also planning to enter this high-rise segment, said a lot of such projects are under approval in the city and next year would see many of them being launched. But as there are not many roads that are 60 ft wide, the places where these could come up would be fewer. He said the large number of launches next year is not expected to have an unsettling impact on the realty market. Any realtor, including a market biggie from Bangalore planning to enter the city, will phase out their execution and “definitely correction will not happen” since compared with land price the apartments are ‘realistically priced' in Coimbatore.

Mr V.Subramanian, Executive Director, Ramani Realtors Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore, said the major advantage of Coimbatore was that even in prime areas such as R.S.Puram or Ram Nagar, flats could be bought for Rs 4,500-5,000 per sq.ft, a luxury not available in many other cities. What was of concern to the builders was the high cost of land. The demand was for flats in the Rs 35-Rs 50 lakh price band but as buyers in this segment are price-sensitive, developers have to tread cautiously.

Coimbatore hopes for more trains

With the Coimbatore North–Irugur second railway line commissioning expected any time, passengers in Coimbatore eagerly hope that the trains which at present skip Coimbatore Junction because of the single line bottleneck causing pathway congestion, will touch the city junction soon.
Coimbatore, with a burgeoning passenger traffic, continues to remain the second largest revenue spinner in Southern Railway next only to Chennai. However, neglect of the Coimbatore region continues, says S. Vaidyanathakrishnan of Coimbatore Railway Passengers Association. Mr. Vaidyanathakrishnan said though many requests had been sent to the railway authorities for new trains for the region or extension of trains from destinations in Kerala nothing had been done.
While many of the trains from Coimbatore were being extended to destinations in Kerala, citing space constraints for coach maintenance facilities here, Coimbatore, Coimbatore North or Podanur did not have these facilities despite land availability, he said.
Coimbatore passengers continued to struggle for confirmed tickets in trains bound for Thiruvananthapuram, Mangalore, Bangalore and even Chennai while there were no trains to Rameshwaram.
The migrant population had to bear the brunt of inadequate services to Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari. Overnight express trains to Bangalore, Tirupati (announced as Inter City express in the railway budget but yet to be operated) and a train to Thiruvananthapuram remained a dream, said
Mr. Vaidyanathakrishnan. Similarly, the request for a train from Mettupalayam to Goa via Mangalore connecting two tourist destinations had not been considered, said K. Kathirmathiyon of Coimbatore Consumer Cause.
Train to Rameshwaram could be run via Karur till the gauge conversion on the Coimbatore–Palani–Dindigul was over, Mr. Kathirmathiyon said. He said there were more than a dozen trains running via Podanur and Irugur and skipping Coimbatore.
The reason given by the railways was the pathway congestion because of the single line up to Irugur. After two decades, the Irugur–Coimbatore second line is all set to be commissioned. Nine trains skip Coimbatore Junction at present. When the second line becomes functional, passengers expect these trains to run via Coimbatore Junction. .

Tree-top guest houses a hit with Kovai tourists

 All roads now lead to Kovai Courtallam as tourists get a different experience altogether enjoying nature from treetops amidst forest environment. Thanks to forest department’s eco-tourism initiative.Interestingly, Kovai Courtallam got a facelift at a time when developmental work was going on in full swing for the World Classical Tamil conference. And the forest department as part of a drive to attract tourists launched the ‘Treetop guest houses’.“This has received immense response from the tourists even from far off places as they are exposed to nature’s bounty in the forest surroundings,” District Forest Officer I Anwaruddin said. The project is aimed at making the people experience the forest environment thereby helping the department in its conservation exercise.Shedding more light on it, Anwaruddin said this innovative project is being implemented with the active participation of tribal population living in the vicinity. To be precise, the idea behind the eco-tourism project is to reduce tribals dependency on forest wealth.LCS Srikanth, Range Forest Officer, Social Forestry, who takes care of eco-tourism said that two houses on tree-tops besides two guest houses constructed at ground level is now turning as a tourist attraction as houses are booked well in advance.  He said the 10x10 sq.ft single room atop the tree-top with 6x5 sq.ft cot having an attached toilet is being offered at a charge of `2000 for 24 hours. And the guest houses have been provided with air-condition facility. Canteens are run by tribals near the tree-top houses for the convenience of the tourists. The guest houses are let on rent only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Anwaruddin said the entire proceeds from ‘Tree-top houses’ goes to the kitty of tribal welfare fund.

NTC to sell Minerva Mills land for Rs 50 cr

After garnering about Rs 2,000 crore from the sale of prime mill land in Mumbai, the National Textile Corporation (NTC) will put some of its property in Bangalore on the block in October.

The company would be selling 1.73 acres at the Minerva Mills in Bangalore through an e-auction.

"We have fixed up a reserve price of Rs 50 crore for Minerva Mill," NTC Chairman and Managing Director Ramachandran
Pillai said. The mill had become defunct.

The company is expecting double the amount of the reserve price, if not more from the auctions. The three-day process will start from October 25 in Indore, followed by the auction in Bangalore.

Last week, the company had invited tenders for the sale of land.

Recently, real estate major Indiabulls Infrastructure bagged NTC's 8.3 acres of Bharat Textile Mills land in Mumbai, for a whopping Rs 1,505 crore.

It also won the company's 2.3 acre Poddar Mills land for Rs 474 crore, paying almost double the reserve price of Rs 250 crore.

Industry experts said that the expected response for Indore and Bangalore lands would not be as high as the Mumbai auction as the financial capital typically commands higher rates. NTC would use the funds for modernisation and diversification.

"As part of this revival scheme, the company will set up one technical textile mills in Rajasthan and one in Coimbatore," Pillai said.

After the sale of Mumbai land, the company has revised its mop-up target for this fiscal by 60 per cent to Rs 8,000 crore.

The company has about 1,300 acre of surplus land in various states, such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Indore, Karnataka and Coimbatore.

Corpn. to re-lay 92 roads in city

The Coimbatore Corporation has identified 92 roads in the city for re-laying at over Rs.20 crore. A proposal for this was approved by the Corporation Council at its urgent meeting on Friday.
The proposal placed in the Council said that the Corporation was implementing an underground drainage scheme in many parts of the city under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission.
Many roads were being dug to lay the drainage lines and these had to be re-laid to enable smooth flow of traffic. Besides these roads, there were others whose condition had deteriorated over the period of time and required re-laying. Some of these roads were in Ramnagar, Kothari Nagar, Meena Estate, Tatabad and Periyar Nagar.
The Corporation also sought approval from the Council to request the State Government for funds for the works under the Special Roads Scheme.
The Council also approved a proposal to pay Rs.24 lakh to the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board for a high tension power connection to the drinking water treatment plant being established at Velliyankadu under the Rs.113-crore Pilloor Phase II scheme.
The Corporation was keen on completing the scheme by March 31 and begin supply immediately in order to meet the rising demand for drinking water in the city.
The Council, however, deferred for further discussion a proposal to sell for non-drinking purposes treated waste water. The Corporation was establishing sewage treatment plants at Ukkadam, Nanjundapuram and Ondipudur as part of drainage scheme. The civic body planned to sell the treated waste water to private or public enterprises.

Manufacturing units should become integrated partners for global market

Indian manufacturing units should become integrated partners of global original equipment manufacturers, Subu D Subramanian, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Defiance Technologies, said here on Friday.
Speaking at the Global Manufacturing Cluster Vision 2020 organised by the Coimbatore District Small Industries Association and TexasVentures, he said that technology was a catalyst to enhance manufacturing productivity. For the last two to three decades, technology and manufacturing had been going hand-in-hand. In the 21st century, technology went beyond enterprise and that drove the growth of the companies.
The market attractiveness and capability in the country would explode the size of opportunities. Overseas companies would want to design their products for the Indian consumers. Hence, the manufacturers should become integrated partners for global market and global original equipment manufacturers.
R. Nandini, Chairperson of Confederation of Indian Industry, Tamil Nadu chapter, said the manufacturing sector contributed to 15 per cent of the GDP and employed 58 million people. Sectors such as food processing, metal and electrical machinery were growing fast. The growth was driven primarily by domestic consumption. The Indian manufacturing sector was now globally competitive and participated in the global economy. Innovation and technology would boost competitiveness. The Government, industry and academia should collaborate for the Indian manufacturing sector to grow at 11 per cent annually for the next 15 years.
During the recent years, the manufacturing industry helped Tamil Nadu achieve 13.2 per cent GSDP. The state had attracted huge foreign direct investments. Export of value-added products had also gone up. Textiles, automobile and engineering were some of the sectors that were doing well. “New avenues of growth are seen now,” she said. “We should impart skill to our youth.” About four lakh students passed out of the colleges in the state every year and only 25 per cent of them were employable.

Hope College? Here is the reason!

In 1945, Hope inaugurated a polytechnic college in Coimbatore which was later named "Arthur Hope Polytechnic" in his honor. The polytechnic was later upgraded to a college of science and technology and renamed Government College of Science and Technology in 1950. Though the college was renamed and moved to a new campus, the area where it was originally located is still being called as "Hope College".

Corporation opens a number of parks

Over the last two days (Wednesday and Thursday), the Coimbatore Corporation opened nearly 30 parks across the city. These were among the 40 created over a total space of 18 acres in various wards of the Corporation in the run-up to the World Classical Tamil Conference that was held in the city from June 23 to 27.
The Corporation already has 46 parks created on reserved sites.
Forty more public purpose sites marked for parks have been turned into green spaces.
The Corporation says that more parks will be established on such sites allocated for this purpose.
The parks opened on Wednesday and Thursday have been established at more than Rs. 3.5 crore.
The Corporation clarified at a Council meeting sometime ago that the opening of the parks was delayed because of some small works that were to be completed. This was in response to charges by some councillors that the civic body was waiting for a prominent person to open the parks.
Officials said the parks could be opened with the councillors of the respective wards soon after the works were completed.
The parks were opened by Rural Industries Minister Pongalur N. Palanisamy on Wednesday, in the presence of Mayor R. Venkatachalam, Commissioner Anshul Mishra and Deputy Mayor N. Karthik.
Apart from enough greenery, the parks have been provided with a walkers' path. The Coimbatore Corporation has also formed a Horticulture Wing to oversee the maintenance of the parks, apart from the roadside parks and traffic islands.
While the physical maintenance of the green spaces is to be outsourced, the wing will plan landscapes and lend expertise in designing.
