PROGRESS ON ESTABLISHMENT OF THE PROJECT

 

 The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy got the idea of establishing the institute in a meeting with Dr. L. Mohan, Director of Animal Husbandry.  The project proposal was prepared and presented by Prof. G. N. Rao, Associate Dean (Retd) at a meeting at Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University, Tirupati chaired by the then Vice-Chancellor Dr. Manmohan Singh on 24-5-2007.  Sri N. P. Rama Krishna Reddy, Special Secretary to Government, Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development and Fisheries Department was appointed as Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to IGCARL on 31-8-2007.

 The Hon’ble Chief Minister laid the foundation stone for the Centre of Advanced Research on Livestock (CARL) at Pulivendula on 6-9-2007 and named it after the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi as Indira Gandhi Centre for Advanced Research on Livestock (IGCARL).

 

Sri N. P. Ramakrishna Reddy, Special Secretary & OSD assisted by Prof.  G. N. Rao, Advisor to APLDA (Ex-Associate Dean who originally proposed the project) and Dr Nissar Hussain, Advisor to APLDA (Retd CEO of APLDA) has taken rigorous exercise on day to day basis, interacted with more than 20 senior scientists and visited various Institutes such as CCMB, LaCONES, ICRISAT, BAIF institute with reputed Animal Houses in Pune, FMD Vaccine Centre in Pune and National Institute of Virology in Pune from 1-9-2007 till 16-10-2007.

   

The APIIC with Sri B. P. Acharya, IAS as Managing Director was engaged as executing agency and Dr. D. Vijay Kishore, Director and Dr.(Mrs.) P. Padmavathi, Professor of School of Planning & Architecture (presently Vice-Chancellor, JNA & FAU), Masab Tank, Hyderabad have been appointed as Architects for the project of IGCARL for the purpose of designing, master planning, preparation of estimates, preparation of required documents for calling of tenders, preparation of architectural features for the buildings of IGCARL etc.

 

The OSD held several meetings in CCMB, NIN and Teachers Home, Bhoiguda and CVSc, Rajendranagar, SVVU with several scientists, engineers and architects to finalize vision, mission and goal of the IGCARL including objectives, grouping of research labs, space requirements for various labs, administrative building, auditorium, animal houses etc to meet the requirements of International standards and staff requirements. After several rounds of discussions, the space requirements and staff requirements for IGCARL have been worked out. The total built up area is about 7.37 lakh sq. ft. The total staff required is 386 and the requirement of funds is Rs. 386 crore.  It was proposed to complete the construction of IGCARL in 3 years period and the Research Block in the first phase was completed and inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister on 25-1-2009.

 

PPP and SEZ: Public private partnership for IGCARL was proposed by Dr. P. Suresh, Deputy Director, National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad while special economic zone was suggested by Prof. G. N. Rao, former Associate Dean, College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar.   Sri N. P. Rama Krishna Reddy, OSD to IGCARL, being a technocrat, with his background experience on PPP projects on large ports like those at Kakinada, Gangavaram and Krishnapatnam and GMR-Hyderabad International Airport at Shamshabad readily agreed and vigorously pursued the proposals of PPP and SEZ and brought them to a successful stage making IGCARL a unique institute on livestock research not present anywhere in India and also rarely present at world level.  The private developer would be mostly be interested in production of vaccines relating to FMD, Blue Tongue, PPR, New Castle Disease, Gum Boro,  Marek’s  Disease etc which will be the outcome of research at the Institute. So the research and vaccine production are interlinked components. Public Private Partnership (PPP) and Special Economic Zone (SEZ) are proposed so as to generate receipts for meeting the recurring expenditure for conducting research.

 

          An extent of 656.45 acres of land has been acquired for development of the project on PPP and SEZ mode. The main purpose of the research centre is to improve the animal health & productivity. There are six groups of research covering 20 subjects. Private Partner (P.P) may plan for production of vaccine and diagnostics for various diseases like Foot & Mouth Disease in all cloven footed animals, Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) in sheep and goats, Blue Tongue in cattle and sheep, New Castle Disease, Infectious Bursal Disease, and Marek's Disease in poultry etc. which is a revenue earning source for the project besides helping the farmers. The P.P may also undertake freezing and export of Ongole cattle embryos which have great demand in Brazil and other countries.  Further, testing and certification of milk, meat and eggs and their products for pesticide and antibiotic residues and composition etc for export purpose may be undertaken.  Contract testing of drugs etc on laboratory animals may be undertaken.  Advanced training courses may also be offered at international level by making use of the state of the art laboratories and other facilities at the Centre.  Innovative research processes and their products at the Centre may be patented for earning revenue.  Superior germplasm of livestock produced at the centre can be sold to various agencies in India and abroad.

 

          It has been proposed to set up SEZ in IGCARL land at Pulivendula for the advantages it offers for the institute (Unit) and Developer as per the following relevant provisions of SEZ Act 2005 and SEZ Rules 2006:

 

As per SEZ Act, “manufacture” includes animal husbandry, poultry etc. A SEZ may be established either jointly or severally by the Central Government, State Government or any other person for manufacture of goods or rendering services or both.   Any person, who intends to set up a SEZ, may, after identifying the area, make a proposal to the State Government for the purpose of setting up the SEZ. In case a State Government intends to set up a SEZ, it may, after identifying the area, forward the proposal directly to the “Board of Approval”.

         

The Central Government, while notifying any area as SEZ shall be guided by the following:

          (a) generation of additional economic activity

          (b) promotion of export of goods and services

          (c) promotion of investment from domestic and foreign sources

          (d) creation of employment opportunities

          (e) development of infrastructure facilities

 

The areas falling within SEZs may be demarcated by the Central Government as

          (a) processing area for setting up Units for activities, being the      

               manufacture of goods, or rendering services; or

          (b) the area exclusively for trading or warehousing purposes; or

          (c) the non-processing areas for activities other than those specified in (a)

     or (b).

 

Any goods or services exported out of, or imported into, or procured from the Domestic Tariff Area by (i) a Unit in SEZ or (ii) a Developer shall be exempt from the payment of taxes, duties or cess.  The Central Government may appoint the Development Commissioner of one or more SEZs.

 

Any person, who intends to set up a Unit for carrying on the authorized operations in SEZ, may submit a proposal to the Development Commissioner concerned in such form and manner containing such particulars as may be prescribed.  The State Government may notify policies for Developers and Units and take suitable steps for enactment of any law granting exemption from state taxes, levies and duties to the Developer or the entrepreneur.

 

As per SEZ Rules 2006, “capital goods” includes equipment and instruments for testing,           research and development, quality and pollution control system, for use in animal husbandry, poultry and in the services sector.  The processing area shall be fully secured by boundary wall or wire   mesh fencing with specified entry and exit points.  The authorized persons shall only be allowed to enter the processing area.  A Unit may export goods or services as per the terms and conditions of Letter of Approval including agro-products.

 

          Further, in order to achieve the goals and objectives of   IGCARL, it was felt that there is huge requirement of funds.  Therefore, the Government decided to explore the development of the Institute on Public-Private-Participation (PPP) mode and to declare it as Special Economic Zone, while simultaneously going ahead with the construction activities of IGCARL with Government funds. Accordingly,  the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation were asked to take  further action for  declaring required area as Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and to appoint suitable consultants for  processing of selection of  suitable developer for the IGCARL Project on PPP mode.

         

The Government constituted a committee with Sri B. P. Acharya, IAS, MD, APIIC as Chairman to oversee the process of appointment of consultants, selection of developer and contractor/firms/agencies etc for the IGCARL project and make suitable recommendations to APIIC.  The Committee was later revised with Dr. Priyadarshi Dash, IAS, Special Chief Secretary to Government, AH, DD & F Department as Chairman.

 

          The Government of Andhra Pradesh accorded approval for the following proposals at its Cabinet meeting held on 17-12-2007:

 (1)    To establish a Center for Advanced Research on Livestock to be

named as Indira Gandhi Centre for Advanced Research on Livestock (IGCARL) located at Pulivendula, in Kadapa District attached to Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University, Tirupathi as an autonomous institution.

 

(2)     To develop IGCARL as World Class Institute under Public-Private-Participation i.e., PPP mode in the Special Economic Zone in the proposed area of about 644 acres.

(3)     To construct the institutional buildings etc., with Government funds while simultaneously processing for selection of suitable developer to run the institute under PPP.
