Project cargo falling at Chennai

first_imgThe report indicate that whilst 2007-08 was a bumper year with a record throughput, in 2008-09, the port’s throughput of project cargoes, such as large machinery and boilers for various industrial units, dropped by nearly 68% to 86,332 tonnes.Mr K Suresh, chairman of Chennai Port Trust is quoted as saying that: “It is a reflection of the market slowdown,” and that there was a drop in imports and exports of project cargoes by a number of large manufacturing units located in and around Chennai.The report suggests that the diversion of certain kind of traffic was another reason and that traditionally, whilst Chennai port had been a major exporter of wind turbine blades to various European countries, one of the major exporters of this item diverted shipments through New Mangalore port in the second half of last financial year, resulting in a fall in throughput at Chennai port.The July/August edition of HLPFI will include a comprehensive review of the Indian heavy lift and project forwarding market and the issues facing companies involved in providing or requiring freight, transport and logistics services for heavy and over-dimensional cargoes in the country.

‘Restore World Teachers Day incentive, medical exam benefit in DepEd’s 2021 budget, Senate urged

first_imgSIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP The Department of Education (DepEd) has sought the Senate’s help in restoring incentives for teachers that were cancelled in the proposed P4.506-trillion national budget for 2021.(Photo courtesy of DepEd / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN)During a Senate committee on basic education, arts and culture hearing, Education Undersecretary Annalyn Sevilla said the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) removed the P1,000 World Teachers’ Day incentive given to teachers as well as the P500 annual medical examination benefit for them.“These two benefits are not anymore existing in the 2021 NEP (national expenditure program). This was not considered by the DBM for our 2021 budget,” Sevilla told the committee, chaired by Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian, Wednesday.“I think the reason why the DBM was not able to consider this in the 2021 NEP (national expenditure program) is the reason these are congressional initiatives. So we would be needing your support again, your honor,” she said.The total of these allocations, according to Sevilla, is P1.5-billion. She said the DepEd has been giving these benefits for two years already starting in the 2019 General Appropriations Act and in the 2020 GAA.The benefits for this year, she said, would be given to eligible teachers for this month until October.According to Sevilla, the DepEd initially requested for a P1.1-trillion budget from the DBM for 2021 but the agency only granted them P605-billion budget.Nevertheless, next to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), DepEd is the second government agency given a higher budget among other agencies.But DepEd’s assistance subsidies dropped from P36.6-billion in 2020 to P26.3-billion in 2021. last_img read more
