SHRI RAVULA CHANDRA SEKAR REDDY (CONTD.): It is of inferior quality. But still, they are bound to go with it. I request the Government to involve farmers and weavers in these Committees so that they can effectively bring their problems to the notice of the concerned people. The other point is regarding the issue of restrictive production of seeds to authorised races. This is where discretion lies, and there is bound to be some discrimination. I request the hon. Minister that while replying to the debate, he should inform us how they are going to ensure the transparency, both, in the sense of discretion as well as containing the discrimination. We need some enlightenment on this. As far as farmers are concerned, they are not getting the remunerative price. The whole process needs a lot of patience and skill, and it is a very sensitive process in preparing the mulberries up to the stage of cocoons, it is a very, very sensitive activity. They need a lot of patience, and they have to spend a lot of time over the process. Hence, they need not only minimum support, but also need remunerative price for their work in the process. I want to know from the Government how they are going to protect our farmers and weavers when compared with the China market and Japan, though slowly, Japan is withdrawing from the field, but we have a stiff competition with China. They are dumping it into our market, and people are tempted to buy them since they are more attractive, more designs are there, though they are of inferior quality. But, in certain cases, they are given at a throwaway price. So, people are tempted to buy them. So, the Government should ensure or the concerned Board should ensure the quality and quantity and remunerative price to the people who are involved in the whole process. With these suggestions, I support the Bill. (Ends)

SHRIMATI N.P. DURGA (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, I rise to speak about the pathetic condition in which the sericulturists in Andhra Pradesh, particularly Chittoor and Anantapur districts are surviving, particularly after the Multi Fibre Agreement came into force. The first point I wish to make is that silk development is in the Concurrent List. Under this, it is the duty of the Government of India to assist the State Governments in sericulture by extending research and development, seed, technological support and financial assistance to farmers and reelers.

The other point I wish to make is that instead of helping the farmers by imposing anti-dumping duty on China, since we get majority of silk and silk-worm seeds from China, under the WTO and MFA, the Government is reducing the customs duty on silk. I request the hon. Minister to increase the duty to 60 per cent or 70 per cent on imported silk to save the farmers of our country. Sir, it is not only from China, but silk yarn and raw silk is also coming into the country from Nepal and Bangladesh, though in small quantity. This is affecting the silk producers and reelers and twisters in West Bengal. Hence, I request that the Government should take up a special drive for preventing smuggling of silk yarn.

The next point I wish to make is that the subsidies and financial support to farmers and reelers have been increased in the 10th Plan for sericulture sector by 30 per cent over the 9th Plan to Rs. 450 crore. And, the Ministry has kept Rs. 186 crore or 41 per cent of this amount aside for the Centrally-sponsored Plan schemes. I wish to know the schemes that have been undertaken in the State of Andhra Pradesh and the achievement of the schemes so far, because I am personally aware that the schemes are not reaching our farmers in Chittoor which area I represent, and Anantapur, which is my neighbouring district.

Sir, I understand that the Government is also giving duty free licence for import of raw silk/silk yarn. I don't understand the rationale behind this. I may be corrected if I am wrong. If the Government is issuing any such licences, I request the hon. Minister to immediately suspend them with immediate effect. The next point is that the Central Government and the Central Silk Board should assist the State Governments with a revolving fund to make purchases of cocoons and silk yarn at remunerative prices to farmers and reelers. Thank you.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Ms. Mabel Rebello, do you want seek clarification or what?

MS. MABEL REBELLO (JHARKHAND): I want to make one point. Nobody has spoken on mulberry silk. I want to speak on raw silk. I want just two minutes. Mulberry silk is quite different from raw silk.

(contd. by 2o)

-RSS/MKS/AKA/2.05/2O

MS. MABEL REBELLO: Sir, I will take just two minutes.

Sir, Mulberry silk is grown by the farmers. This Kosa cacoon, which I am talking about, is obtained from the jungle. Kosa is a jungali cacoon, and the villagers, particularly in Chhattisgarh, and, I think, even in Jharkhand, procure it from the forests, particularly in Bastar, Bilaspur, Raigad and Sarguja. When they procure it, the traders buy it. You see, the villagers procure it; the traders buy it, and they make money! Then, what happens is this. Sir, I have seen myself that in Bastar, these cacoons are boiled; women have to squat on the floor and have to roll them on their thighs. This leads to Eczema and a lot of other problems, Sir. What do these women get? They hardly get Rs.50/- because the cocoons do not belong to them. They belong to traders. These women just work, as you know, as wage-earners. Similarly, in respect of yarn, Sir, when weaving is done, of raw silk, which is known as Kosa, again, what is happening is, the people do not own looms. Looms are owned by the traders, the big businessmen. Women and others weave them. What do they get? They hardly get Rs.50/- a day. It is a special art. Intricate designs they weave, but they do not get remunerative prices. That is why, I draw the attention of the hon. Minister towards this. While paying attention to Mulberry silk,--I know there are a plenty of problems concerning Mulberry silk; I do understand that--I would request the hon. Minister not to forget this Kosa silk trade which is dwindling day by day.

THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF TEXTILES (SHRI E. V. K. S. ELANGOVAN): Sir, the sericulture provides a livelihood to an estimated 25 lakh small and marginal farmers in the countries and occupies about 2.5 lakh hectares of irrigated and rain-fed land. Altogether, the silk industry generates employment for 58 lakh persons and an output of about 70,000 metric tonnes of raw silk. It contributes an estimated amount of Rs.6,000 crores to the GDP. The Government is well aware of this particular sector's importance; we are taking all the measures to encourage this particular sector.

Sir, the hon. Members have raised a few questions and have also given certain suggestions. I would like to say that most of them, especially Shri Hariprasad, have mentioned that there should be more members and that there should be a representation of sericulture farmers also. I am very happy to tell Shri Hariprasad that we are increasing the number of farmers from ten to fifteen; we are making a Committee consisting of 15 members. I am telling this for his information.

Most of the Members, including Shri Perumal and Shri Acharya, have also mentioned about the Chinese silk coming into our own market; due to that, our silk-producing farmers, our sericulture farmers are incurring heavy losses. Sir, I would like to say that the Government has taken anti-dumping measures to stop dumping from China, and now, the interim order has also been passed in our favour. For weaker sections, the amount of subsidy should be enhanced; that was the request of the hon. Members. I would like to state that the Government has many schemes under which a subsidy is given to the weaker sections of the society. As a matter of fact, most of the schemes are for small and marginal farmers. Hon. Member Shri Moinul Hassan from West Bengal said that seeds should be supplied to West Bengal. Sir, I assure you that the Government will ensure adequate supplies of high-yielding seeds, as desired by the hon. Member. The hon. Member has also suggested for setting up a silk park at Murshidabad in West Bengal.

(Contd. by TMV/2P)

-MKS-TMV-MCM/2P/2.10

SHRI E. V. K. S. ELANGOVAN (CONTD.): I would like to state that setting up of a silk park in Murshidabad is a good idea. We will consider how it can be done by mutual efforts of both the Central and State Governments.

SHRI C. PERUMAL: I have mentioned about Udumalaipet.

SHRI E. V. K. S. ELANGOVAN: I am coming to that. Hon. Member, Shri Perumal, suggested that Udumalaipet near Coimbatore is a suitable place for sericulture. I totally agree with him. In the near future, we are going to organise a meeting of officials of the Central Silk Board and the local farmers at Udumalaipet. A proposal on technology mission for silk is under the consideration of the Central Silk Board for supporting the farmers and sericulture. Almost all the Members insisted that quality silk should be supplied and the people, who are consumers, should be assured of good quality silk. I am happy to tell them that the Central Silk Board has recently launched the Silk Bond Scheme through which the consumers will be assured of pure silk.

SHRI B. K. HARIPRASAD: What about subsidy?

SHRI E. V. K. S. ELANGOVAN: As for subsidy, as far as automatic silk yarn reeling is concerned, we are giving a subsidy of Rs.50 lakhs per unit. I think two units have already been sanctioned in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

Shri Acharya mentioned about Japanese cooperation. I would like to say that the Japanese International Cooperation Agency is funding various sericulture projects in four States, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. I assure the House that our Ministry along with the Central Silk Board is taking all necessary steps to encourage sericulture and the silk industry in the country. I would like to inform the House that after the quota system is over, we have to face stiff competition from countries like China. So, to improve this particular sector and make it more profit-oriented, I would request the House that the Bill be taken into consideration.

MS. MABEL REBELLO: Sir, I have referred to raw silk. But the Minister has not replied to that. Raw silk is a big trade industry. Lakhs of women are working in this sector in central India and tribal regions. So, raw silk, Kosa silk, should not be left out. The Minister should incorporate that in this Bill.

Secondly, since the Minister is going to increase the number of Directors on the Central Silk Board from 10 to 15, I would request the Minister to have, at least, 30 per cent women on the Board. This is a women-intensive industry.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Women are the users.

MS. MABEL REBELLO: Women are working in the silk industry. They have the experience. So, they should be given an opportunity to share their experience. I think the Minister will be take cognisance of this.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The question is:

That the Bill further to amend the Central Silk Board Act, 1948 be

taken into consideration.

 

The motion was adopted.

Clause - 2 -- Amendment of section 3.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now, we shall take up clause-by-clause consideration of the Bill. In clause-2 there is one amendment (No.3) by the Minister.

THE PRODUCE CESS LAWS (ABOLITION) BILL, 2006.

THE MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE AND MINISTER OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS, FOOD AND PUBLIC DISTRIBUTION (SHRI SHARAD PAWAR): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, I move:-

That the Bill to repeal the Agricultural Produce Cess Act, 1940 and

and the Produce Cess Act, 1966, as passed by Lok Sabha, be

taken into consideration.

(THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (SHRI KALRAJ MISHRA) IN THE CHAIR)

Sir, this is a very small repeal Bill. There are certain items which are produced in this country and there was a provision for taxing. The whole world is giving support to the export of agricultural products. In fact, there are subsidies for export of agricultural products. But in our country, this particular law is there for many years and there is a provision for tax on the export of butter, fish, fruits, ghee, pulses, seeds, spices, tobacco, vegetables, wheat, sheep and lamb wool. The whole world is encouraging exports and giving a number of facilities. But this type of Bill, this type of Act is still there in our country. We have taken a decision to repeal this Bill. Instead of levying taxes, I think, this is time when we should help and encourage farmers. We should provide some sort of help so that the farmer is able to export his produce to international market and he is competitive in the international market. (Ends)

The question was proposed.

NEED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL QUANTITY OF RICE FOR MID-DAY MEAL PROGRAMME IN ANDHRA PRADESH.

 

SHRI M.V. MYSURA REDDY (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, my Special Mention is regarding the need to provide additional quantity of rice for the mid-day meal programme in Andhra Pradesh.

Sir, it has come to my notice that the quantity of rice allotted for the State of Andhra Pradesh is not sufficient to meet the mid-day meal requirements of the children. The allocation of 100 grams of rice per child per day is totally inadequate. I feel that it should be enhanced to 125 grams per child per day.

I am also of the view that the mid-day meal programme is extended to children up to classes ten in a phased manner.

I request the Government to provide additional quantity of rice to the State of Andhra Pradesh for the mid-day meal programme and also provide sufficient funds for creating infrastructural needs of the children like kitchen sheds, drinking water facility, gas connection, etc. Thank you.

CONCERN OVER LAND ACQUISITION UNDER SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONES.

MS. MABEL REBELLO (JHARKHAND): Sir, a mad rush to set up Special Economic Zones (SEZs) has begun, and this looks more like a real estate rush than an export rush. The Government has allowed up to 75% of the area of SEZs to be used for non-export purposes such as housing, schools, entertainment, banks and other things.

The new policy came into force in February 2006. But already 388 applications have been made, of which 140 have received clearance. Maharashtra has 63 applications. Haryana, which is far away from sea, has 53 applications.

The Government gives 10-year tax holiday, which makes the corporate sector develop SEZ. SEZ is also an oasis where the industrial units don't have any labour and industrial disturbance. It appears that large units are making SEZ units as heaven to save taxes. Some are making plans to shift their existing units to SEZ zone to avoid tax altogether.

Indian companies, and funds and entrepreneurs are buying land as if there is no tomorrow. According to some estimates, they are in the process of acquiring almost 4,00,000 acres of land.

What is the guarantee that enough export units will flock to these new SEZz, especially to those in States far away from good ports? The newspapers are full of stories of people wanting to set up new SEZs, but have very little to say about exporters wanting to rush into them.

Government should keep a close watch on this type of land acquisition, lest it should contribute to the already high cost of land and also lose huge revenues due to these SEZs. Thank you.

NEED FOR URGENT REPAIR AND RESTORATION OF DAMAN GANGA BRIDGE IN DAMAN.

SHRI B.K. HARIPRASAD (KARNATAKA): Sir, despite its tiny size, the Union Territory of Daman (72,00 sq. km.) pulsates with a dense population and dotted with small and medium size industrial units run by locals known for their entrepreneurial skills.

The bridge linking Moti Daman with Nani Daman built over the breakwaters of Arabian Sea is in disrepair for the last two years due to the sinking of pillars and collapse of spans. An enquiry is under way to probe the cause of the premature collapse of the bridge.

Daman Ganga bridge is closed for traffic for the last two years and the locals have to make a detour to reach either place by travelling via Vapi which involves a distance of more than 30 kms, causing avoidable waste in fuel and travel time.

National Buildings Construction Corporation is engaged in restoration of this vital road link but the work is stalled due to delay in completion of the enquiry. Pending completion of the departmental enquiry, considering the severe hardships the locals are subjected to at present, I urge the Ministry of Urban Development to ensure that the work is taken up and completed by NBCC on war footing to restore this vital road link as soon as possible.

DEMAND TO PROVIDE HOUSING LOAN AT CHEAPER RATE.

SHRI C. PERUMAL (TAMIL NADU): Sir, housing is one of the largest industries in the country providing employment to lakhs of people, directly and indirectly. It is a basic infrastructure. We have seen immense growth in the last five years. There was a severe competition among the banks to lend for the projects. Due to housing industry, ancillary industries also grow and a lot of economic activity is seen in this area. But of late, the Reserve Bank of India has formulated a policy which would hamper this industry. Housing loan has been singled out by the Central bank for an unfavourable treatment and the bank has asked all commercial banks not to give loans for this sector. While it is the duty of the Reserve Bank to boost the economy, but it is acting as a bottleneck. Due to directions by the Reserve Bank, commercial banks are not giving loans. Moreover, the rate of interest charged by cooperative banks is also high and as a result poor and middle class people, who aspire for a house, are affected. Therefore, I demand that suitable steps should be taken to provide housing loans at cheap rates and the Government should give suitable instructions to Reserve Bank in this regard. The Government should also ensure that private and foreign banks do not keep on increasing the rates of interest on housing loans. In fact, I would suggest that housing should be treated with agriculture in the matter of loan and the rate of interest should not be more than 7 per cent. Otherwise, the entire infrastructure and economic system will not improve much. (Ends.)
