CIRCOT's ginning training centre completes 25 years

Dec '11
The Ginning Training Centre (GTC) at the Central Institute for Research on Cotton Technology's (CIRCOT's) regional station in Nagpur has completed 25 years of its establishment.

At a function held to mark the silver jubilee celebrations, almost each and every cotton industry stakeholder, whether connected with the industry directly or indirectly, acknowledged the Institute and the Centre's achievement in technological development and impartation of training.

Mr. S Ayyappan, Director General of the Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) said GTC has crossed a milestone by completing 25 years, and added that foresightedness of the former CIRCOT Director Mr. V Sundaram was worth appreciation that cannot be expressed through words.

He said skills are most sought after today and GTC should persistently carry forward its initiative of producing skilled manpower to manage the country's ever growing ginning industry.

Mr. Ayyappan said GTC should operate on the principle of the three Ps namely, prestige, partnership and profit. He added that GTC should widen its scope to cover the entire world and vowed to transform GTC into an institution of global recognition.

Mentioning the India-African funds for cooperation in the sphere, he sought enhanced research and development in the ginning industry, while enhancing the ginning capacity of the already existing technology and machines.

Praising the double roller gin technique and the particle board technology from cotton stalks evolved by CIRCOT, Mr. Ayyappan stressed on the necessity for more such innovations. He also announced recruitment of six more scientists for CIRCOT.

Mr. AB Joshi, Textile Commissioner of India, said that though India leads the world in ginning technology, further improvements are needed in weaving technology. He promised that the bale tagging technique would be shortly adopted for tracing all the cotton bales.
