    4

    Can the expenditure incurred towards personnel exclusively appointed by the companies for implementing the CSR activities of the company, be included in the expenditure earmarked for CSR activities?

    Salary paid by the companies to regular CSR staff as well as employees, who render their services for CSR will be part of Administrative overheads and should not exceed 5% of the total CSR expenditure as per rule 4(6) of CSR Policy, Rules 2014.
    5

    Whether CSR expenditure of a company can be claimed as a business expenditure?

    The amount spent by a company towards CSR cannot be claimed as business expenditure. The Finance Act, 2014 provides that any expenditure incurred by an assessee on the activities relating to corporate social responsibility referred to in section 135 of the Companies Act, 2013 shall not be deemed to be an expenditure incurred by the assessee for the purposes of the business or profession.

    Whether the ‘average net profit’ criteria for section 135(5) is Net profit before tax or Net profit after tax?

    Computation of net profit for section 135 is as per section 198 of the Companies Act, 2013 which primarily is NET PROFIT BEFORE TAX.

    Can the CSR expenditure be spent on the activities beyond Schedule VII?

    General Circular No. 21/2014 dated June18, 2014 of MCA has clarified that the statutory provision and provisions of CSR Rules, 2014, is to ensure that while activities undertaken in pursuance of the CSR policy must be relatable to Schedule VII of the Companies Act 2013. However, the entries in the said Schedule VII must be interpreted liberally so as to capture the essence of the subjects enumerated in the said Schedule. The items enlisted in the Schedule VII of the Act, are broad-based and are intended to cover a wide range of activities.

    What tax benefits can be availed under CSR?

    No specific tax exemptions have been extended to CSR expenditure per se. Finance Act, 2014 also clarifies that expenditure on CSR does not form part of business expenditure. While no specific tax exemption has been extended to expenditure incurred on CSR, spending on several activities like contributions to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund, scientific research, rural development projects, skill development projects, agricultural extension projects, etc., which find place in Schedule VII, already enjoy exemptions under different sections of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

    Which activities would not qualify as CSR Expenditure?

    • The CSR projects or programs or activities that benefit only the employees of the company and their families shall not be considered as CSR activities in accordance with section 135 of the Act. • One-off events such as marathons/ awards/ charitable contribution/ advertisement/sponsorships of TV programmes etc. would not be qualified as part of CSR expenditure. • Expenses incurred by companies for the fulfillment of any Act/ Statute of regulations (such as Labour Laws, Land Acquisition Act etc.) would not count as CSR expenditure under the Companies Act. • Contribution of any amount directly or indirectly to any political party shall not be considered as a CSR activity. • Activities undertaken by the company in pursuance of its normal course of business.

    Being a holding or subsidiary company of a company which fulfils the criteria under section 135(1) doesn’t make the company liable to comply with section 135, unless the company itself fulfills the criteria.

    Can donation of money to a trust by a company be treated as CSR expenditure of the company?

    General Circular No. 21/2014 of MCA dated June 18, 2014 clarifies that Contribution to Corpus of a Trust/ Society/ Section 8 companies etc. will qualify as CSR expenditure as long as :
    (a) the Trust/ Society/ Section 8 company etc. is created exclusively for undertaking CSR activities or
    (b) where the corpus is created exclusively for a purpose directly relatable to a subject covered in Schedule VII of the Act.

    Whether contribution to political party is considered as CSR activity?

    In a Remarkable Achievement, India gets its 37th WORLD UNESCO World HERITAGE SITE.

    Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensemble of Mumbai declared as a World Heritage Property by UNESCO in Manama, Bahrain today
    In yet another landmark achievement, India’s nomination of the "Victorian and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai " has been inscribed on  UNESCO's World Heritage listThe decision was taken at the 42nd session of the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO at Manama in Bahrain today. As recommended by the World Heritage Committee, India accepted the renaming of the ensemble as “Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai”.  
        
    Rajabai Clock Tower as part of the Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensemble of Mumbai.
     India has been successful in securing the inscription of the "Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai” on UNESCO's World Heritage List under Criteria (ii) and (iv) as defined in the UNESCO's Operational Guidelines.    
    This makes Mumbai city the second city in India after Ahmedabad to be inscribed on the World Heritage List. In the past 5 years alone, India has managed to get inscribed seven of its properties/sites on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. India now has overall 37 World Heritage Inscriptions with 29 Cultural, 07 Natural and 01 Mixed sites. While India stands second largest in number after China in terms of number of World Heritage properties in ASPAC (Asia and Pacific) region, it is overall sixth in the world.
    On this historic moment, the Union Minister of State for Culture (I/c) Dr. Mahesh Sharma has congratulated the residents of Mumbai and the entire country for this landmark achievement. In his statement, the Minister said that the international recognition to the heritage precinct of the city of Mumbai is a matter of great pride to the nation and it will boost the local economy in a number of ways. He also added that this achievement is expected to give a tremendous fillip to domestic and international tourism leading to increased employment generation, creation of world-class infrastructure and augmentation of sale of local handicrafts, handlooms and heritage memorabilia.


    University of Mumbai as part of the Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensemble of Mumbai.
     The Ensemble comprises of two architectural styles, the 19th century collection of Victorian structures and the 20th century Art Deco buildings along the sea, conjoined by means of the historical open space of the Oval Maidan. Together, this architectural ensemble represents the most remarkable collection of Victorian and Art Deco buildings in the world which forms the unique character of this urban setting, unparalleled in the world.

                     
    The Ensemble consists of 94 buildings primarily of 19th century Victorian Gothic revival and early 20th century Art Deco style of architecture with the Oval Maidan in the centre. The 19th century Victorian buildings form part of the larger Fort precinct situated to the east of the Oval Maidan. These public buildings include the Old Secretariat (1857-74), University Library and Convention Hall (1874-78), the Bombay High Court (1878), the Public Works Department Office (1872), Watson’s Hotel (1869), David Sasoon Library (1870), the Elphinstone College(1888), etc. The Art Deco styled buildings to the west of the Oval Maidan were raised in early 20thcentury on the newly reclaimed lands at Marine Drive and symbolised the shift in expression to represent contemporary aspirations.

    The inscription has been done under Criteria (ii) and (iv) as defined in the UNESCO's Operational Guidelines. Criterion (ii) refers to the important interchange of human values, over a span of time on development of architecture, monumental arts, town planning and landscape while Criterion (iv) refers to being an outstanding example of a type of building, architectural or technological ensemble or landscape which illustrates a significant stage (s) in human history. This achievement is especially remarkable in the view of the successive inscription of another Indian city after Ahmedabad last year.
    In addition, 42 sites from the country figures in the Tentative List of World Heritage and the Ministry of Culture would be recommending one property every year for nomination to UNESCO.

    Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare04-July, 2018 14:22 IST
    Boost to farmers’ income

    Cabinet approves hike in MSP for Kharif Crops for 2018-19 Season MSP of Moong increased by Rs.1400 per quintal MSP of Sunflower increased by Rs.1288 per quintal MSP of Ragi up by Rs.997 per quintal MSP of Common Paddy increased by Rs.200 per quintal
    Giving a major boost for the farmers’ income, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the increase in the Minimum Support Prices (MSPs) for all kharif crops for 2018-19 Season.

    The decision of the CCEA is a historic one as it redeems the promise of the pre-determined principle of fixing the MSPs at a level of at least 150 percent of the cost of production announced by the Union Budget for 2018-19.  The Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP) has recommended MSPs for all kharif crops broadly in line with the announced principle.

    The Minimum Support Prices (MSPs) for all kharif crops of 2018-19 season have been increased as follows:

    * Includes all paid out costs such as those incurred on account of hired human labour, bullock labour/machine labour, rent paid for leased in land, expenses incurred on use of material inputs like seeds, fertilizers, manures, irrigation charges, Depreciation on implements and farm miscellaneous expenses, and imputed value of family labour.
    Details:
    The Budget for 2018-19 had indicated that a paradigm shift in the agricultural policies is needed to achieve the objective of doubling farmers' income by 2022 through greater emphasis on generating higher incomes of farmers. The increase in the MSPs of Nigerseed at Rs.1827 per quintal, moong by Rs.1400 per quintal, sunflower seed by Rs.1288 per quintal and cotton by Rs.l 130 per quintal is unprecedented.
    Amongst cereals and nutri cereals, in terms of absolute increase, MSP of paddy (common) has been raised by Rs 200 per quintal, jowar (hybrid) by Rs 730 per quintal and ragi by Rs 997 per quintal. The highest percentage increase in MSP over the previous year is for ragi (52.47 %) followed by jowar hybrid (42.94%). For pulses, apart from Moong, MSP of arhar (tur) has been raised by Rs 225 per quintal yielding a return over cost by 65.36 per cent and urad by Rs 200 per quintal with a return over cost by 62.89 per cent in order to maintain inter-crop-price parity. Similarly, the MSP of Bajra has been raised by Rs.525 per quintal yielding a return of 96.97 per cent over cost.
    Promoting cultivation of pulses can help India overcome nutrition insecurity, improve soil fertility by nitrogen fixation and provide income support to farmers. Thus, increased MSPs for pulses will give a price signal to farmers to increase acreage. Further enhanced MSPs would boost production of oilseeds and encourage investment in its productivity and help reduce India's import bill. Increase in MSPs of nutri-cereals will improve nutritional security and allow farmers to get higher prices.
    Food Corporation of India (FCI) and other designated State Agencies would continue to provide price support to the farmers in the case of cereals including nutri-cereals. National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (NAFED), FCI, Small Farmers Agri -Business Consortium (SFAC) and other designated Central Agencies would continue to undertake procurement of pulses and oilseeds. Cotton Corporation of India (CCI) will be the central nodal agency for undertaking price support operations for Cotton.
    Farmer friendly initiatives by the Government:  
    Besides increase in Minimum Support Prices (MSP) of kharif crops, Government has also taken several farmer friendly initiatives. Theseare as follows:
    *      The premium rates to be paid by farmers are very low - 2 % of sum insured for all kharif crops, 1.5% for all rabi crops and 5 % for commercial and horticulture crops under smart technology through phones & remote sensing for quick estimation and early settlement of claims. The Government has also launched a Mobile App "Crop Insurance" which will help farmers to find out complete details about insurance cover available in their area and to calculate the insurance premium for notified crops.
    •      The Government has also launched a scheme to develop a pan India electronic trading platform under 'National Agriculture Market' (NAM) aiming to integrate 585 regulated markets with the common e-market platform in order to facilitate better price discovery and ensure remunerative prices to farmers. Each State is being encouraged to undertake three major reforms - allow electronic trading, have a single license valid throughout the State and a single entry point market fee. It will also enable farmers to discover better prices for their produce. As on 23rd  March, 2018, 585 markets in 16 States and 2 Union Territories have already been brought on the e-NAM platform.
    •      Government has also formulated a new model Agricultural Produce and Livestock Marketing (Promotion & Facilitation) Act, 2017 to provide farmers market options beyond the existing APMC regulated market yards.
    •      Soil Health Cards are being issued to farmers across the country. These will be renewed every two years. The card provides information on fertility status of soil and a soil test based advisory on use of fertilizers. As on 25th June, 2018, 15.14 crore Soil Health Cards have been distributed.
    •      Under ParamparagatKrishiVikasYojana (PKVY), the Government is promoting organic farming and development of potential market for organic products.
    •      The Pradhan MantriKrishiSinchaiYojana is being implemented with the vision of extending the coverage of irrigation 'HarKhetkoPani' and improving water use efficiency 'Per Drop More Crop ' in a focused manner with end to end solution on source creation, distribution, management, field application and extension activities.
    •      Government is focusing on improving production and productivity of crops such as rice, wheat, coarse grains and pulses under the National Food Security Mission.
    •      A dedicated online interface e-KrishiSamvad provides direct and effective solutions to problems faced by farmers.         
    •      Government is encouraging formation of Farmer Producer Organisations. The Budget for 2018-19 has extended a favourable taxation treatment to Farmer Producers Organisations (FPQs) for helping farmers aggregate their needs of inputs, farm services, processing and sale operations.
    •      Government has set up a buffer stock of pulses and domestic procurement of pulses is also being done under Price Stabilization Fund (PSF) mainly with a view to protect consumers. The Budget for 2018-19 indicated that increasing MSP. is not adequate and it is more important that farmers should get full benefit of the announced MSP. For this, it is essential that if price of the agriculture produce market is less than MSP, then Government should purchase either at MSP or work in a manner to provide MSP for the farmers through some other mechanism. NITI Aayog, in consultation with Central and State Governments, will put in place a fool-proof mechanism so that farmers will get adequate price for their produce.
    •      A handbook for women farmers 'Farm Women Friendly Hand Book' containing special provisions and package of assistance which women farmers can claim under various on­ going Missions/ Submissions/ Schemes of Department of Agriculture, Cooperation & Farmers Welfare has been brought out.
    •      With the above measures taken, the Government has set a target to double the farmers' Income by 2022.

    TOP 10 WORKPLACE SAFETY TIPS EVERY EMPLOYEE SHOULD KNOW
    Julie Copeland
    POSTED BY JULIE COPELAND
    CEO

    Workplace safety cannot exist on best practice guidelines and policies alone. A safe working environment is based on how well the people, in both management and on the factory floor, adhere to -- and communicate about -- safety standards.

    The foundation of any successful workplace safety effort is one that encourages employees to identify unsafe behaviors and opportunities for improvement while also making well-informed safety decisions during daily routine tasks.



    Here’s the Top 10 Workplace Safety Tips Every Employee Should Know to help you inform your own workers and create a workplace safety environment based on shared responsibility:


    1) Be Aware Of Your Surroundings

    This step requires knowing the particular hazards of your job or workplace. Once you’ve learned these risks, you are able to keep clear of potential hazardous areas, and potential hazardous situations. Also, always be alert of machinery.

    2) Keep Correct Posture To Protect Your Back

    If you work at a desk, keep your shoulders in line with your hips to avoid back problems. If you’re picking things up, use correct form so your back doesn’t get hurt. Avoid stooping and twisting. If possible, always use ergonomic designed furniture and safety equipment so everything you need is within easy reach.

    3) Take Regular Breaks

    So many work-related injuries and illnesses occur because a worker is tired, burned out and not alert to their surroundings. Taking regular breaks helps you stay fresh on the job. One trick to staying alert is to schedule the most difficult tasks when your concentration is best, like first thing in the morning.

    4) Use Tools And Machines Properly

    Take the proper precautions when using tools, and never take shortcuts. Taking shortcuts is one of the leading cause of workplace injury. It’s a huge safety risk to use scaffolding as a ladder or one tool in place of another for a specific job. Using tools the right way greatly reduces the chance of workplace injury.

    5) Keep Emergency Exits Easily Accessible

    In case of an emergency, you’ll need quick, easy access to the exits. It’s also recommended to keep clear access to equipment shutoffs in case you need to quickly stop them from functioning.

    6) Report Unsafe Conditions To Your Supervisor

    Your supervisor needs to be informed about any workplace safety hazards or risks. They are legally obligated to ensure their employees have a safe working environment and will take care of the unsafe conditions and make them safe for you and your coworkers.

    7) Use Mechanical Aids Whenever Possible

    Instead of attempting to carry or lift something that’s really heavy in an attempt to save a sliver of time during your workday, take the extra minute to use a wheelbarrow, conveyor belt, crank or forklift. Too many injury risks are involved with trying to lift something that weighs too much.

    8) Stay Sober

    Around three percent of workplace fatalities occur due to alcohol and drugs. When a worker’s ability to exercise judgment, coordination, motor control, concentration or alertness is compromised, this leads to any number of risks for workplace injury and fatalities.

    9) Reduce Workplace Stress

    Stress can lead to depression and concentration problems. Common causes of workplace stress include long hours, heavy workload, job insecurity and conflicts with coworkers or managers. Take your concerns about workplace stress to your supervisor to see how they might help you address them.

    10) Wear The Correct Safety Equipment

    If you’re not wearing the correct safety equipment for a task, you may get injured. Depending on the job, equipment like earplugs, earmuffs, hard hats, safety goggles, gloves or a full-face mask greatly reduce the risk of workplace injury.

    What is a Culture of Safety? 

    How do you know if you have one and how can you enhance this culture once it has been established?

    It is actually much easier to identify an organization that does not exhibit a culture of safety. These are organizations that have recurring injuries and down time along with increasing insurance rates and possible litigation issues. At these facilities, workers don’t feel safe or comfortable with the PPE provided to them and don’t bother to alert someone if gloves, glasses or earplugs fit properly. Management and workers sometimes ignore safety procedures and safety is not looked at as a top priority, nor is it discussed or properly invested in. Workers are not empowered to make a difference and in these cases, the culture of safety is broken or non-existent.
    In a culture of safety, workers are empowered to take action. They are responsible for safety and the safety of their coworkers and their leaders understand the value of safety. Management is committed to changing the environment for the better and continually and invest in the protective equipmentservices and technology necessary to keep their workers and workplaces safe.

    OSHA has reported that developing a strong culture of safety has a significant impact on reducing incidents and the development of these cultures should be a top priority for managers and supervisors.
    How will a culture of safety impact your organization and what are the steps necessary to establish one?

    Shocking Costs Electrical Incidents (6).png


    1) Investment from Leadership
    Building an effective culture of safety starts at the top. Leadership must look at safety as something more than a line item and must invest in the proper resources including quality PPE, expert training and technology to help predict and prevent injuries. This approach ensures safety is highlighted as a key component of day-to-day operations within an organization.

    2) Establish Safety Procedures and Policies
    Safety procedures should be established and posted throughout your facility. Make sure all policies and procedures are clearly outlined and understood. Provide clear written instructions and check with employees before they begin using equipment or performing tasks for the first time. Ensure workers know what they are being asked to do and if necessary, provide instructions in additional languages when necessary.
    3) Empower Employees to be Responsible and Accountable for Safety
    In organizations that have truly excelled in creating a culture of safety there is an overwhelming feeling that safety is very important. Every worker feels responsible for not only being safe but making sure those around them are safe. Empower your workers to “own” safety by involving them in the safety planning process. Encourage and champion “safety leaders” in your organization who will be responsible for safety initiatives in addition to their regular responsibilities. The more employees understand and take ownership of your organizations safety initiatives the more he/she will take action.
    4) Make Training a Regular Part of Your Safety Program
    Proper safety training is an essential component of any safety program. Share best practices at weekly safety meetings and provide safety resources to your employees. Invest in EH&S training which can positively impact your bottom line by reducing insurance premiums, lowering workers’ compensation rates and ensuring compliance with regulations. Investing in training also shows that you care about your employees and are invested in their safety.
    5) Put Systems and Technology in Place to Correct or Prevent Safety Issues
    It is not enough to just provide high quality PPE and training. You must also ensure you are aware of potential hazards in your facility. A workplace safety site audit can help to identify potential deficiencies or out-of-date equipment. Additionally, it can help to review written programs, training records and logs for any regulatory or safety gaps that may put workers at risk. Investing in innovative new technology that helps you take a proactive approach to preventing workplace injuries is another step you can take.
    6) Commit to Continuous Improvement
    Once the steps above have been taken it is important to continually progress and make improvements. A series of continuous process improvement steps should be established and measured in your facility. This will help ensure that your organization is effectively committed to building a culture of safety and can report on the results.
    When companies develop a culture of safety they tend to have lower incident rates, lower turn-over, lower absenteeism and higher productivity. Management understands the value of safety and helps employees work at the highest levels by helping them feel safe and supported.

  • 07/08/18--08:49: Tips for Air Compressor Maintenance An Air Compressor is a vital piece of equipment in commercial organizations and manufacturing industries. It also plays a vital role in sophisticated instrument laboratories requiring a source of compressed air such as gas chromatograph and atomic absorption spectrometer. The compressed air quality in laboratory needs to be free from impurities such as dust, oil and moisture so additional filter traps are necessary. An air compressor consists of different parts – including a variety of valves, each of which plays a critical role – that require regular examination, repair and replacement to maximize performance and prevent downtime. Air Compressor Air Compressor The Almighty Valve That said, there is one valve you should leave at its original setting. During the manufacturing process, the pressure relief valve is adjusted for the maximum pressure permitted by tank specifications and working pressure. If you change this setting and the valve pops, you will have to drain all of the air out of the tank in order to reseat it correctly. The level of pressure dictates whether or not you should perform maintenance on the tank drain valve. As long as the tank pressure remains below 25 PSIG, you should open the valve daily to drain condensation. If the pressure rises above 25 PSIG, leave the valve closed. It is wise to remove all valves and clean your air compressor with a soft wire brush and compressed air if you notice that the tank is filling up slowly or the machine is failing to pump air altogether. It is crucial that you disconnect the compressor from its power source and drain the air tank prior to beginning the cleaning process. In fact, before beginning any maintenance work, you must make sure the compressor’s main disconnect switch is in the “off” position and “tag out” or “lock out” all sources of power. Leaving the equipment connected to any source of power while you are working on it is hazardous to your health and could damage the compressor. Hoses Affect Everything Much like valves, hoses are an integral part of your air compressor’s system. When hoses leak due to corrosion or cracks, they can place strain on the rest of the components. You can prevent this from happening by checking them on a regular basis and promptly replacing any hoses that demonstrate compromised integrity. A Filthy Filter is Foul Think about it: filthy air filters are going to hurt your compressor at its very core, forcing it to work harder to intake air. That sounds a bit counterproductive, right? Fortunately, there is an easy solution. Simply check your filters frequently and swap out the old for the new if you notice dirt and dust build-up. You can extend the time period between inspections to six months if you do not use the compressor often, but taking a look at filters on a monthly basis is recommended. A similar theory can be applied to intake vents. Dirty intake vents cause your air compressor to work too hard, especially in an environment prone to dust and dirt, resulting in diminished compression power. You can avoid this problem by keeping the intake vents as clean as possible. It should only take you a few minutes and will help improve performance. Beat the Heat Keeping operating temperatures down is an absolutely vital practice for extending the life of your air compressor. Clean the heat exchangers on a regular basis to ensure your unit remains cool under pressure. A smooth running air compressor delivers compressed air at consistent pressure which is essential for efficient running of instruments with minimal damage to their components . In a nutshell a well maintained air compressor is a key to higher productivity in laboratories, industries and commercial establishments.

    Classification of Ion Exchange Resins

    300px-Anion+cation_exchanger2
    Anion and Cation Exchangers in presence of ions in solution
    Ion Exchange resins are natural or synthetic polymeric materials that do not dissolve easily in most solutions and have ionic character due to presence of ionic groups. Such ions are easily exchanged with the ions present in solutions in contact with them. Such character of ion exchange resins has been effectively put to use primarily in drinking water treatment besides other industrial and laboratory purification processes.
    Ion exchange resins are classified on the basis of their ion exchange properties. A resin packed bed can be used for removal of undesirable ions by passing the solution through it or even for the recovery of valuable ions from the resin subsequently. Cation exchangers bear positively charged ions which are available for exchange and anion exchangers which bear negatively charged ions which can be easily exchanged with anions present in solutions. Consequent to the ionic exchange measures can be adopted to regenerate the resin bed for subsequent reuse.

    Strong Acid Cation Exchangers

    Strong acid cation exchangers are highly ionised due to presence of sulphonic acid group which readily removes a metal salt. In sodium form such resins readily remove hardness of drinking water due to presence of calcium and magnesium salts whereas in hydrogen form they serve to remove all the ions present. The exchange capacity of such resins is independent of pH of the solution. Resin can be regenerated by contact with a strong acid solution.

    Weak Acid Cation Exchange Resins

    In the weak acid cation exchange resin the ionizable group is carboxylic acid group. In contrast to strong acid exchangers the degree of dissociation of the cation exchanger is strongly influenced by the solution pH and has limited activity in acidic solutions below pH 6.0.

    Strong Base Anion Exchange Resins

    Strong base anion exchange resins are highly ionised and can be used over the entire pH range. Such resins have strong basic quaternary ammonium or hydroxyl anions. These are useful for reducing the acidic strength of water. Regeneration to the original hydroxyl form can be achieved by treating the exhausted resin with sodium hydroxide solution.

    Weak Base Anion Exchange Resins

    Weak base anion exchange resins capacity is influenced by the pH of the solution. Typical exchange groups are amines which help remove anions such as chlorides, sulphates, nitrates,etc. Regeneration can be carried out by neutralisation of the acid with basic solutions such as ammonia or sodium carbonate.

    Scientific Organizations should work in synergy and not in silos: Vice President

    Engage with coastal states to make them tsunami-ready: Vice President tells Scientists Interacts with Scientists & Researchers at Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services
    The Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu called upon various scientific organizations in the country to work in synergy and not in silos for improving people’s lives. He was interacting with the Scientists of the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) and the National Tsunami Warning Centre located there, in Hyderabad today. The Deputy Chief Minister of Telangana, Shri Mohammad Mahmood Ali and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
    The Vice President said he was extremely impressed with its capabilities and the work being carried out by the scientists in the areas of ocean observations, information and advisory services. He told the scientists to work closely with NDMA, coastal states and their disaster management units to make the coastal communities tsunami-ready.
    At the National Tsunami Warning Centre, the Vice President enquired about tsunami alerts and the on-going research on tsunami detection. The Director of INCOIS, Dr Satheesh C. Shenoi gave an overview of the Tsunami Warning Centre’s activities.
    Later addressing the scientists and researchers, the Vice President complimented INCOIS for issuing Potential Fishing Zone (PFZ) Advisories to 5.79 lakh fishermen along the Indian coastline in their local languages. The advisories were reducing their fishing time by 60-70 per cent, while netting two to three times higher profit compared to their searches prior to receiving the advisories, he added.
    The Vice President said that techniques and knowledge base developed at INCOIS was not only helping in improving the quality of the life of fishing community, but also resulting in huge national savings on diesel and valuable human effort, he added. 
    Lauding INCOIS for developing operational services for predicting oil spills, the Vice President advised the institution to constantly interact with the user agencies like the Coast Guard, Maritime Police and seek their feedback to improve advisories and services. Glad that the Indian Coast Guard, the agency responsible for the mitigation of oil spills occurring in the seas around us, was now using the oil spill trajectory predictions and working closely with INCOIS to improve the accuracy of predictions, he added.
    The Vice President also suggested to INCOIS to integrate Multi-Hazard vulnerability maps and the 3D GIS maps with tsunami early warnings and storm surge predictions to give a more accurate forecasts of the areas that might get inundated due to tsunami or storm surge. It will help in better management of the disasters and mitigate the suffering of the coastal population, he added.
    The Vice President also wanted INCOIS to popularize ‘Sagar Vani’, an integrated information dissemination system, among the fishermen and other users so that the ocean information and alerts could be reached to a large number of people.
    Following is the text of Vice President's address:
    "I am delighted to visit the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) and interact with scientists and researchers.
    Ever since its inception in 1999, INCOIS has carved a niche for itself in the field of oceanography. Let me first compliment the Director of INCOIS, scientists and other staff of the institute for the excellent progress made by this centre in the areas of ocean observations, information and advisory services.
    I am aware that the services of INCOIS, backed with strong science, generated and delivered through hi-technology innovations, are directly touching the lives of millions of coastal population.
    I noted that INCOIS is literally following its mission statement that states: “Provide the Ocean Information and Advisory Services to Society, Industry, Government Agencies and Scientific Community through Sustained Ocean Observations and Constant improvements through Systematic and Focussed Research”.
    The Potential Fishing Zone (PFZ) Advisories issued by INCOIS have now become part of the value chain of the fishing community. I am told that an estimated 4.5 lakh users are regularly accessing this advisory and reducing their fishing time by 60-70 per cent, while netting two to three times higher profit as compared to their previous searches prior to receiving these advisories.
    With millions along the Indian coastline dependent on fishing for their livelihood, I am pleased to know that these PFZ advisories with specific references to 586 fish landing centres along the coast are being given in the form of maps and texts in native languages. I am happy that the techniques and knowledge base developed at our research centers are helping in improving the quality of the life of fishing community. This results in huge national savings on diesel and valuable human effort.
    I am sure, the efforts of INCOIS to improve the accuracy of these advisories and in predicting the Potential Fishing Zones will further help our fishermen in their fishing activities. I also compliment INCOIS for designing and installing new generation Electronic Display Boards (EDBs) at major fishing harbors.
    I am also pleased to know that INCOIS is providing forecasts on state of oceans around India.
    As you all are aware, marine operations and safe navigation require accurate information on ocean weather. INCOIS service on Ocean State Forecasting (OSF) is a major step in this direction. The service provides forecasts on the condition of ocean waves, ocean surface currents, sea surface temperature and other related aspects five days in advance. I am happy that these services are used by fishermen, ports and harbours, Indian Navy and Coast Guard. I congratulate INCOIS for developing very high-resolution Ocean General Circulation Models and utilising them to provide the forecasts on the state of oceans around India.
    I am also informed that INCOIS has developed the operational services to predict the movement of the oil spills when they occur in the seas around us. I am glad that the Indian Coast Guard, the agency responsible for the mitigation of oil spills occurring in the seas around us, is now using the oil spill trajectory predictions provided by INCOIS and working closely with INCOIS to further improve the accuracy of predictions.
    Again, I am also pleased to know that the Search and Rescue Aid Tool (SARAT) developed by INCOIS is being used by Coast Guard, Maritime Police and other agencies to search for persons and objects missing at sea. I strongly urge you to constantly interact with various users and implementation agencies like the Indian Coast Guard, Maritime Police and seek their feedback to further improve your advisories and services.
    I just visited the state-of-the-art National Tsunami Warning Centre and was impressed with the capabilities. I have been briefed that this centre is one of the best in the world   and is providing timely and accurate tsunami advisories. I compliment INCOIS and other institutions involved in establishing this system indigenously in a record time. I am happy to note that the accuracy of our advisories is “on-par” or even “better” than other global centres and that our system has now expanded its services to all the countries on the Indian Ocean Rim.  I am confident that we are well prepared to issue the warning in few minutes and save the precious lives in the eventuality of any tsunami in future.
    I understand that INCOIS is focusing on expanding the operations to South China Sea and other areas, enhancing the accuracies of warnings by real-time tsunami modelling, and improving the resilience of coastal communities through capacity building programmes. I suggest that you must work closely with all coastal states, especially with their disaster management officials, to make the coastal communities tsunami-ready.
    I have seen the Multi-Hazard vulnerability maps and the 3D GIS maps generated by INCOIS. I am sure that they will find enormous use in planning of coastal infrastructure as also in disaster mitigation. Meanwhile, I suggest you to integrate these maps with tsunami early warnings and storm surge predictions so that you can give a more accurate  forecast of the areas that might get inundated due to tsunami or storm surge. It will help in better management of the disaster and mitigate the suffering of the coastal population.
    Ocean data is an important prerequisite for the generation of services, initialization of models, validation of models and forecasts as well as for oceangraphic and atmospheric research. INCOIS should continue its efforts in deploying and maintaining these ocean observing platforms (Argo floats, drifters, current meters, sea level gauges, tsunami buoys, etc.). With INCOIS establishing itself as the one-stop-shop for all ocean related data and data products, these activities need to be sustained.
    Web, mobile and information technologies have evolved as the prime sources of information dissemination. I noticed that INCOIS has effectively capitalized on these technologies and built a single window system with multilingual and WEB-GIS functionality for delivery of ocean data, information, and advisories. The fact that the number of users has grown multi-fold over the years is a proof of its utility. I advice you to popularise the newly developed ‘Sagar Vani’, among our fishermen as well as among other users of ocean so that you can reach the information to a large number of users and general public quickly through multiple dissemination mechanisms.
    I am delighted to learn about the academic activity and the growing number of Ph.D. and masters students on your campus. I am delighted that the International Training Centre for Operational Oceanography established at INCOIS in 2013 is now being developed into a UNESCO Category II Centre. I believe, UNESCO approved the establishment of this Centre, in recognition of the capability of India in the field of ocean science. You must utilise this opportunity to keep up our leadership in the areas of ocean sciences and lead other countries in sustainable development of the oceans-- a common heritage of humanity.
    I am aware of the numerous awards achieved by INCOIS and the Tsunami Warning System for its excellent record of service. I would like to congratulate the young & dynamic team for all the good work.
    I have also taken note of the future plans of INCOIS that include, (i) enhancing the accuracy, resolution & reach of its PFZ & OSF services, (ii) regional & global tsunami watch operations, (iii) real-time tsunami & storm surge modelling, (iv) setting up high-resolution ocean general circulation models with data assimilation capability, (v) multi-hazard & 3D-GIS Mapping (vii) utilisation of GPS for tsunami early warnings, (viii) setting up of UNESCO Category 2 Centre as a world class training centre for operational oceanography and (ix) setting up Digital Ocean. I am sure, the Ministry of Earth Sciences will provide necessary resources and support to these extremely important initiatives.
    Finally, before concluding, I would like to express my deep appreciation for the outstanding work being carried out at INCOIS to meet the societal needs—solving the problems faced by the people should be the basis for any scientific advancement.
