Media coverage of Tamil Nadu Veterinary And Animal Sciences University TANUVAS, Chennai Tamil Nadu, Tamil Nadu
Ammas next freebie: Free Cows and GoatsThe Free Livestock scheme of Jayalalithaa – promised on her election manifesto- is going to be started on September 15, Former Chief minister C.N. Annadurai Birthday. Tamilnadu chief minister stood on her promise to give free cow and goats for rural people of Tamilnadu.
This year nearly 37 thousand poor families will be benefited by this scheme. This scheme is exclusively for woman. The poor family that was selected for this scheme can choose between these two schemes. They can get four goats or one milk cow. Those who want to get the milk cow should not have more than one acre of land.
Those who want to have goats should be landless labourers. These are the essential criteria to be eligible under these schemes. With the company of govt officials, they can go to the cattle market and select their animals. This year it has been planned that 12 thousand high breed jersey cows and one lakh goats would be distributed.
Its not a mere free distribution scheme. It is planned as a comprehensive programme to develop the rural economy of Tamilnadu says Dr.R.Prabhakaran, the Vice chanchellor of Tamilnadu Veterinary and animal sciences university.
Now Tamilnadu has the population of one lakh 10 thousand cattles and 1 lakh 70 thousand goats. TN goverments New scheme will increase the population. But apart from giving cattles and goats, there is the plan ahead to increase the fodder land and fodder production also. Our govt is going to introduce balanced food and mineral mixture to these animals. A goat can give 5000 rupees as revenue to a family per year. Through the food and modernised cattle management cows inter carving period canbe be reduced. So it can bear six calfs in its life time. All these things have been integrated in this free animal scheme explains Dr.R.Prabhakaran.
Tamilnadu based Popular Naturalist Nammalvar welcomes this scheme. But he has some suggestions. He says, Grass lands are deficient now a days. So government must plan to increase the fodder land in the villages. In the surrounding of village there are many dry lands in unused condition. It should be utilised to grow grass, rainwater tanks and forests. Around every village houses we have to grow tree fodders. When livestock population increases, through their excreta, we can get natural fertilizer also.
At the end of the scheme there will be 60 thousand cattles and 28 lakhs goats will be added to the states Livestock. This scheme that is targeted at the poor rural women, will definitely help the rural economy. After all it is the women in the family who take care of the animals they keep.
RTI-Registrar of University warned by Information CommissionCHENNAI: Rapping the public information officer of the Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Science University (TANUVAS) for failing to supply information to an applicant under the Right To Information (RTI) Act within a fixed timeframe, the Tamil Nadu Information Commission has ordered action against him.
"The registrar, TANUVAS, Chennai, is directed to take appropriate action against the concerned public information officer. The registrar of the university is directed to give an opportunity to the public information officer to explain his indifference and negligence and forward the explanation to the commission within 30 days from the date of receipt of this orders, failing which action will be initiated by the commission to effect recovery of the fine amount," state information commissioner G Ramakrishnan has said.
The censure was passed on an appeal filed by M Sundareswaran, a resident of Nanganallur who contended that the university had repeatedly failed to furnish information under the RTI Act relating to the promotion policy adopted by the institution.
He had filed his original application four years ago but unhappy over the information not being furnished completely, he had moved the Tamil Nadu Information Commission. The latter had issued orders in June 2007 and subsequently in November 2008 directing the public information officer to furnish the information sought for free of cost within a 30-day timeframe.
"Though information has been supplied for all the six items asked for, the petitioner has been put to a lot of hardship in the process of collecting the information from the public authority despite clear orders from the commission&The public authority has taken nearly 40 days even after the receipt of high court orders to supply the information, which shows their lack of commitment to carry out the commission's orders&Therefore, the commission holds the public authority guilty of not only not supplying the information as per the commission's orders but also of rank indifference to the spirit of the (RTI) Act," Ramakrishnan said in his order.
The public information officer also failed to explain to the commission why penalty should not be imposed on him.
"In view of the above reasons, the commission is left with no option excepting to conclude that the public authority has not implemented the orders of the commission even on a single count. There has been all round breach of the orders of the commission and also the provisions of the (RTI) Act. The ends of justice will not be met unless the public information officer is penalised under Section 20 (1) of the Act," the information commissioner concluded.
TANUVAS ready for cloningFriday, July 16, 2010
TANUVAS in a position to venture into cloning
* Techniques for cloning rabbits standardised
* TANUVAS working on larger animals
Chennai: Making steady progress in stem cell research and its clinical applications, the Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (TANUVAS) is in a position to venture into the realm of cloning.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of an international seminar on 'Frontiers of stem cell and biotechnology in human and veterinary medicine,' TANUVAS Vice-Chancellor P. Thangaraju said the varsity was conducting trials in embryo transfer in cattle and culturing of stem cells collected from ovaries for treatment of spinal cord, joints, nerves and tendons in animals.
After successfully using autologous (patient derived) stem cell therapy for the management of a paraplegic dog's spinal cord injury, the varsity plans to set up an umbilical cord cell bank for animals, especially for dogs and horses.
Stem cell therapy could come in handy in treating the injured tendons of race horses, which could cost Rs 4 to 5 lakh each. Virginia Tech, a partner institution, was also working on stem cell therapy for tendon injuries, he said.
On cloning, Mr. Thangaraju said, 'We have standardised techniques for cloning rabbits. Now, we are working on larger animals.'
Unwilling to set a deadline, he said: 'I am not in a position to say whether it (cloning) is in its initial or final stage. There are impediments.
Meanwhile, TANUVAS sources said the varsity has not taken up cloning till now as it involved ethical issues and needed the approval of animal ethics and genetic engineering committees.
At present, TANUVAS was focussing on embryo transfer and stem cell therapy which have greater application in clinical applications, the sources said.
Inaugurating the international seminar, acting Consul General of the United States consulate in Chennai Bryan W. Dalton released the research papers.
Tamil Nadu Science City vice-chairman P. Iyamperumal, Nich-in Centre for Regenerative Medicine director Samuel J.K. Abraham and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University assistant professor S. Elankumaran spoke on the occasion.
TANUVAS programme director R. Prabakaran welcomed the gathering and director of clinics S. Prathaban proposed vote of thanks.
