Coir Board proposes to distribute new mini-spinning machine

The Coir Board intends to distribute a recently launched new mini-spinning machine produced by a Bangalore based company, according to the Board's Chairman, V.S. Vijayaraghavan.

He said that the Board would urge the Union Government to include distribution of these machines in its Mahila Coir Yojana, a women-oriented self-employment scheme floated by the Centre for Coir sector.

If the Centre sanctions the Board's proposal to subsidise the machines to the extent of 75 percent under the 12th Five Year Plan, the machines would be distributed across the Board's 19 coir clusters under the Scheme of Fund for Regeneration of Traditional Industries (SFURTI) located in 11 coir manufacturing States, including Tripura and Assam.

The Coir Board's Central Institute of Coir Technology, Bangalore has already tested the machine and has been referred to the Union only after trials.

Still, the Alappuzha based Central Coir Research Institute and Thiruvananthapuram based state-owned National Coir Management and Research Institute would once again carry out a detailed analysis of the mini-spinning machine, Mr. Vijayaraghavan said.

The permission for large-scale commercialisation of the machine would be given only after such an evaluation, the Coir Board Chairman added.

He further revealed that two leading tufting mat producers based at Alappuzha and the Federation of Indian Coir Exporters Association have already verified the quality of the yarn produced by the machine.

The machine costing around Rs. 50,000 supports single-handed operation and has a capacity to produce 23 kg of yarn per day, offering an average earning of Rs. 300 per person per day.

With such features the new machine can aid in modernisation of coir industry while ensuring better earnings for coir workers, the Coir Board Chairman said.
