In interaction with honorable Chief Minister of Punjab and this WIPO Awarded inventor explained the Importance of Inventing & Innovation in States Progress. He was very much impressed. It was significant that Honorable Chief Minister was ready to adopt any good idea.
Worldwide INVENTING is integral to Company Management and State Development Programs but not in India.
Inventing State of Punjab could realize Manifold Economic Gains. Punjab state to ‘CONSTITUTE INVENTING COUNCIL TO ADVICE ON INTRODUCTION OF TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATIONS IN INDUSTRY & PUBLIC WORKS-PROJECTS’
China achieved 20% Industrial Growth and 11% to 12% GDP Growth in early phase of Industrialization – Punjab can achieve and ‘Exceed’that is briefly explained here.
AGRICULTURE – ALL SEASONS Summer, Monsoon, Winter, Autumn.
Punjab has Two Times more Water in its Canals and Ground Than Gujarat – Best WATER Resources Utilization in the World. Floods are Absolutely Rare inAddition to India’s Best Power and Industrial Infrastructure.All Factories work 24×365 hours without interruptions.
Sowing & Harvesting Crops is practiced in all seasons. Punjab Agriculture is 100% Irrigated ready to diversify cropping pattern – Most SUITABLE FOR FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRIES – GRAINS, OILSEEDS, FRUITS & VEGETABLES – In fact best place in the World to set up Food Processing Industries.
USA has $2000b Food GDP – Why Can’t Punjab have $100b Food Industry?
ü Branded Basmati Retails for up to Rs.200/kg – Stop Growing PDS Rice.
Save 25% Water – Grow Basmati from April-October period. Harvesting of Basmati over 3-4 months would support Paddy Straw Use – Cut Emissions.
ü Branded WHEAT ATTA Retails for up to Rs.45/Kg – Three times MRP.
Ø PUNJAB to Invest in BEST WHEAT & RICE Processing in SME Sector.
Ø PUNJAB to EXPORT BRANDED PACKAGED FOODS than Wheat & Rice.
Ø Punjab should Support LOCAL Entrepreneurs for Sustainability.
MANUFACTURING – FOUR KEY STARTEGIES
1. Support to HIGH & VERY HIGH VALUE ADDITION Industries.
2. Support INVENTIONS & PATENTED Products for Indian & Foreign Markets,
3. Best in Quality Products.
4. Discourage – Assembly of Computers or Merely Packages Industries.
PUNJAB INVESTING Rs.50,000 Cr – IMPACT Rs.2,50,000 Cr
PUNJAB Investing Rs.50,000 Cr on INNOVATIVE Programs would yield 5-10 Times Impact or Rs.2,50,000 Cr in states like Gujarat. Important Lessons: –
1. WATER INFRASTRUCTURE
Gujarat invested Rs.1,00,000 Cr on Water Infrastructure for 50% Coverage – Canals, Water Pipelines, Drip Irrigation, Municipal Water Supply.
Punjab may need just Rs.10,000 Cr Only for 100% Coverage. Punjab to Supply INDUS – SUTLEJ Water to all Households, Adopt Sprinkler-Pipe Irrigation, Efficient Tube-wells.
INVEST IN SEWERAGE SYSTEM LIKE IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES Than Polluting Open Sewage Drains & Pit Latrines in all Punjab Cities, Towns & Villages.
2. TRANSPORT – CIVIL AIRPORT, 1500 KM METRO, UBERIZE TRANSPORT
2a. Civil Airport – When Hong Kong can develop Biggest Airport in a Manmade Island – Punjab can have MEGA CIVIL AIRPORT at LUDHIANA in Sutlej Riverbed – River Front on one side – Airport on another. Cost Rs.5000 Cr by Private Sector but shall cut access time by 50% ensure around 1 hour average access time.
2b. Uberize Public Transport – Bus Stand ControlledPUBLIC TRANSPORT is OUTDATED. Bus Stands and Railway Stations in Punjab are INACESSIBLE – Passengers Wait For Hours and then BUSES ARE FILLED LIKE ANIMALS.
PUNJAB has Underutilized FLEET of 4-20 Passenger Vehicles which are FUEL EFFICIENT – 25kmpl to 10 kmpl which is Comparable to mileage of Tata or VOLVO Buses giving 5 kmpl and 3 kmpl mileage only. In any case PUNJAB doesn’t have effective INTRA CITY Bus Services. Commuters shall save both Time & Money – State to earn more Revenue.
2c. PUNJAB 1500 KM METRO
Delhi is Investing Rs.100,000 Cr on Metro but Punjab already has 1500 KM of Rail Track – Punjab to Improve RAILWAY STATIONS and INDUCT 50 METRO TRAINSETS – PUNJAB to have 1500 KM METRO NETWORK. Electrify remaining tracks etc all to Cost Rs.10,000 Cr – Punjab to Contribute Rs.5,000 Cr.
2d. RURAL HIGHWAYS – TRUCK & TRACTOR HIGHWAYS
A Tractor on LEVEL Road can haul 20T to even 40T Payload[YOUTUBE] but NHAI Projects have Elevated Sections, Flyovers and Few Access Points had DISRUPTED EFFICIENT TRUCK & TRACTOR GOODS TRANSPORT which are Damaging Trucks & Tractors – causes accidents and many thousand death.
PUNJAB has excellent Rural Roads that be IMPROVED for RURAL HIGHWAYS so Trucks and Tractors avoid State & National Highways at Low Cost.
3. POWER DISTRIBUTION & ENERGY EFFICIENCY
In Complaints to Punjab Chief Minister in 1993 I had reported how there was 33 KV Double Circuit Feeder between Tanda & Bhogpur Substations but for PEPSI Zahura Project next to 33 KV Lines, was not provided Power Connection through a 33KV to 11 KV Mini Substation – 10 kilometer 11KV Power Feeder was provided from Bhogpur and that delayed commission of PEPSI Project.
There HUGE POSSIBILTIES TO IMPROVE POWER TRANSMISSION NETWORK – ITS RELIABILITY – ENERGY EFFICIENCY – RENEWABLE [SOLAR-PV] POWER.
4. MEGA FOOD PARKS – BAD IDEA
PUNJAB has 24 SUGAR MILLS when SUGARCANE is Sturdy Crop but only three MEGA PARKS for Delicate Crops. Food Factories are LOCATED at Source of Cropping Area.
I was not happy with MEGA FOOD PARK Policy. Food Processing Minister was told that ‘Fruits & Vegetables Required for Processing are Suitable For Long Distance Transportation’. Too much waste to be generated at MEGA FOOD PARKS – MEGA FOOD PARK POLICY FAILED. PUNJAB need LOCALIZED Food MSMEs Processing Units.
PEPSI Mega Factory – 650 Tones Per Day Capacity Failed to Work.
GUJARAT had 1847 Food Factories in 2014-15 – Fixed Capital Investment Rs.12,645 Cr – So Average FIXED Cost of Rs.7 Cr.
How is that PUNJAB Promotes 3 MEGA Parks?
Gujarat State Horticultural Mission (SHM). During the year 2016-17, (under centrally sponsored scheme of National Horticulture Mission (NHM)), total 2 small Nurseries, 2 Tissue culture units, 2 Seed infrastructure, 18 Green Houses, 10 Net Houses, 224 on farm pack houses, 5 integrated pack houses, 52 cold storages, 4 processing units, 6 ripening units and 46 sorting grading units have been established.
PUNJAB to Support Complete Supply Chain for Food Processing Like Gujarat.
PUNJAB should focus on MICRO, Small & Medium Size Food Factories.
Food Produced to be retailed by Indian & Foreign Organized Retailers.
5. HEALTHCARE & PHARMACEUTICAL CENTERS
Punjab to have One 500 Bed Hospital in Every District & Related Infra.
