Dear friends,

The Cooperatives work on the ideology of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity, having dedication and concern towards the community. Cooperatives have been playing a pivotal role in overcoming difficulties faced by the farming community; and making their lives better and sustainable. Cooperatives are working for all round sustainable development of rural masses. The change in Policy related to Subsidy disbursal has been posing new challenges to the Fertilizer Industry. The disbursement of subsidy is now linked to sale of fertilizers to farmers through POS machines by the retailers, which is resulting in delay in payment of subsidy as compared to system when subsidy used to be paid on receipt of material. This has also increased the working capital requirement. The initial teething problems caused by POS machines are being controlled by the Society and we are able to overcome the issues with strategic efforts. It is worth mentioning that our Finance team has been able to efficiently manage the working capital requirement at the best possible interest rates. The Society has received Rs 134 Crore towards Income Tax refund. Despite several challenges, Society has been able to generate reasonable amount of Profit during 2017-18. Our Hazira Plant has been operating satisfactorily achieving a capacity utilization of 106.27% for Ammonia and 102.72 % for Urea during 2017-18. During 2017-18, the monsoon remained positive except for few northern states impacting a marginal increase in Urea sales by 2.4%, DAP by 1.8% and Complex fertilizers by 3.6% in the country. Society has also successfully achieved ever highest sales of Urea during 2017-18 and also with ever highest sale of OMIFCO urea. The DAP has contributed significantly high. The Biofertilizers sales have also increased with over five Lakh liters, whereas good

Gramin Vikas Trust (GVT) has been able to address the issues of Rural Communities below poverty line (BPL) by undertaking relevant Projects in its area of operation. I am happy to mention that all functions like Finance, Technical, Marketing and HR have shown coordinated efforts in achieving desired results. We consider our employees, a valuable asset and assign paramount importance to Employees Relations with them. In line with this, we have accorded 7th Pay revision to all Employees and Officers during March’2018. The challenges under the changed policy regime shall be overcome with synergic efforts of all of you in coming days and I am sure that all of you would continue to work with greater zeal, hard work and involvement to achieve new heights in your respective area of operations. With best wishes!

cover story

Cooperatives for Livelihood Improvement... By Devjit Singh, DGM (F&A)


ooperatives are voluntary associations of persons formed for promoting and protecting the interests of its members, and are run in a democratic manner with service motive as its main guiding factor, with furtherance of economic prosperity of its members as an allied objective. The founder of the co-operative movement was Robert Owen of England, and the first cooperative retail store was established in 1844 in Rochdale, England, since the prices of essential items in England were very high then, which the poorly paid textile workers could not afford. From then the cooperative movement took off. In India, towards the end of the 19th century, the problems of acute rural indebtedness and the consequent conditions of farmers created an environment for the generation of chit funds and cooperative societies. The farmers generally found the cooperative movement an attractive mechanism for pooling their meagre resources for solving common problems relating to credit, supplies of inputs and marketing of their agricultural produce. In India, the cooperative movement started with the enactment of Cooperative Credit societies Act, 1904. According to this Act, the important objectives of cooperatives were to promote thrift, selfhelp, mutual benefit and cooperation among agriculturists, weavers, artisans, rural entrepreneurs, and people of limited means. Under the  Montague-Chelmsford Reforms of 1919, Cooperation became a provincial subject and the provinces were authorised to make their own cooperative laws. In the Constitution of India, ‘Cooperative Societies’ is a State Subject under entry No 32 of the State List. The MSCS Act 2002, gave a further thrust, fillip and impetus to the cooperative movement in India by strengthening the multi state cooperatives and giving them more autonomy and independence in decision making, to achieve their targeted objectives. However this Act is also now 16 years old and needs a few changes in keeping with requirements of modern times.

Growth of cooperatives As India has a rich history of cooperative movement, after independence, cooperatives assumed a great significance in poverty removal and fast tracking socio-economic growth.   Cooperatives were an integral part of all the Five Year Plans, until the Eighth Plan. There was green revolution where India got self sufficiency in food grain production. In late 1960s there was white revolution and National Dairy Development Board was established which created the trusted and indigenous brand of AMUL. An important leader in the cooperative movement was Shri Lakshman Rao Inamdar who made cooperatives an important part of people’s lives in Gujarat and Maharashtra. In India, cooperative societies have played an important role in promoting the interests and welfare of agriculturists, small businesses and weaker sections of the society.

At present Our Hon PM recently mentioned about challenges for those involved in cooperative movement, and the need to promote it further. Though there was success in milk and food grain production areas, besides agricultural societies, there is now a need to enter into new avenues. Few states have attempted new areas such as sugarcane production, which is mostly through cooperatives in the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat. In Gujarat, there is knowledge revolution where children of 1st  to 12th  class have got widespread computer access through the medium of cooperatives.

World-wide, Cooperatives are today present in a numerous sectors, including agriculture, fisheries, food, finance, health care, marketing, insurance & credit. However, agriculture continues to be the main driver of economic growth in most developing countries. Strong cooperatives are able to overcome many of the difficulties faced by the farmers; whereas in a country like India the overwhelming majority are small and marginal farmers. Cooperatives work on the basic seven ideologies and principles, among these principles the seventh one being- Dedication and concern towards the community, which exhorts cooperatives to work for sustainable community development. There are a number of successful large cooperatives in India itself like KRIBHCO and IFFCO in the fertiliser sector and AMUL in the Dairy Sector, besides Apex, National, District and primary level cooperative societies. All these have greatly benefited farmer members in increasing crop productivity and augmenting farmers income by providing support in various agri-based programmes. Appropriate farming systems to generate year round employment and sustainable income through agricultural produce, crops, vegetables and fruits have been achieved by Indian cooperatives, over the last few decades. Initiative has been taken to go in for Agro Forestry, combining plantation of fruit trees, fuel trees, and forest trees to improve the overall climate on wastelands by cooperatives like IFFDC. The farmer members have been immensely benefited in increasing efficiency of various agri inputs and overall crop productivity and finally making better profits through the efforts of cooperatives.

Scope and future of cooperative movement The cooperative movement which had been largely limited to limited to farming and its allied sectors now needs a paradigm shift. In rural areas, there are many landless labourers with production based agriculture as their sole occupation. It is high time they shift to other allied and profitable activities, since land available for agriculture has shrunk. In the time period, the agriculture as an occupation has also shrunk and land holding became less because of population exposure. Thus, it is important to make more and more rural people understand that agriculture is not the only source of income for rural people.


Cooperatives have inherent advantages in tackling the problems of poverty alleviation, food security and income generation. It is considered to have immense potential to deliver goods and services in remote areas since Primary cooperative societies are, by and large “local level institutions”, fulfilling “local needs”, by employing “local people.” Also, since cooperatives exhibit vast potential for generating self-employment opportunities at the grassroot level, they can help the members to mobilize themselves for their own sustainable livelihood. However, cooperatives need additional support to adopt the successful model for ensuring prosperous livelihoods of its members. The future of cooperative movement is bright but it has to be handled with care. Deficiencies and deformities in cooperative movement have been found with regards to Chit fund scams in west Bengal, Odisha and Bihar. Due to such incidences, the trust of cooperative institutions have gone down, particularly in financial cooperatives.

Some other avenues where cooperatives can develop and thrive • Papad making business and masala making business by local womenfolk • Bee keeping doesn’t require agriculture land which can promote cooperative development. There is a vast market for honey as well as bee wax • Neem Oil coating of Urea can have a cooperative platform • Sericulture • Sea weed culture in coastal areas where the produce can be utilised in pharma sector • General insurance areas • Housing sector including rural housing platforms • Seed processing units • Poultry farms and livestock cooperatives • Transport cooperatives and retail cooperatives

Conclusion The new areas are emerging with the advancement of technology. For example, there is Israeli technology in irrigation facilitated agriculture which requires skilled labour. Hence, Skill development centres can be run by cooperative societies in rural areas. Secondly, to check irregularities in cooperatives, there have to be amended guidelines and rules with stricter implementation. Thirdly, there should be market linkages for agricultural farmers as well as cooperative societies. Lastly, what should not be forgotten is the first principle of cooperation which is to unite everyone, and seek the common good of the members, even while itself remaining anonymous. The cooperative movement does have the capacity to solve people’s problems, as it is people-centric, based on ethics and values, and does not hanker after profiteering by taking heavy risks, as corporates are often prone to do.

Special on World Environment Day - 5 June 2018

Please Wait; Don’t throw away that Plastic bag with garbage... “Beat Plastic Pollution”, the theme for World Environment Day 2018, is a call to action for all of us to come together to combat one of the great environmental challenges of our time. Chosen by this year’s host, India, the theme of World Environment Day 2018 invites us all to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the burden of plastic pollution on our natural places, our wildlife, the environment and - our own health. So…. please wait, don’t throw away that Plastic polythene bag along with the recyclable garbage, hold it in the house, to reuse it 5-8 times at least! the entire motto is Reuse, Recycle; reduce… when it comes to plastic. If nothing else is possible, refuse it! Plastic pollution is defined as the accumulation of the different types of plastic material on land, as well as in water bodies like rivers, oceans, canals, lakes, etc. Basically, it is a synthetic polymer that consists of many organic and inorganic compounds, and is mostly derived from petrochemicals like olefins. Plastic is the wonderful lightweight, durable, moldable, versatile material which changed man’s life in many ways. Nearly every object you see around you has an element of plastic in it. It is used extensively as a packaging material, in fishing nets, in food wrappers, baby bottles and water bottles, electrical appliances etc. As a commodity, it is used on a large scale all around the world. Plastics are used because they are easy and cheap to make and they can last a long time. Unfortunately these same useful qualities can make plastic a huge pollution problem. The cheapness means plastic gets discarded easily and its long life means it survives in the environment for long periods where it can do great harm. Because plastic does not decompose, and requires high energy ultraviolet light to break down, the amount of plastic waste in our oceans is steadily increasing. Every year the world uses up to 5 lakh crore (one trillion) disposable plastic bags and annually 10 lakh plastic drinking bottles are purchased  every minute, worldwide. In total, 50 per cent of the plastic we use is for single use only. Nearly one third of the plastic packaging we use escapes collection systems, which means that it ends up clogging our city streets and polluting our natural environment. About 13 million tons of plastic leak into our oceans every year, where it smothers coral reefs and threatens vulnerable marine wildlife. The plastic that ends up in the oceans can circle the Earth four times in a single year, and it can persist for up to 1,000 years before it fully disintegrates. Plastic also makes its way into our water supply – and thus into our own bodies. Plastics contain a number of chemicals, many of which are toxic or disrupt hormones.  Plastics  can also serve as a magnet for other pollutants, including dioxins, metals and pesticides.


A§H$ 59, OZdar-OyZ 2018 

Plastic pollution, its causes and effects The most dangerous and common  pollution  of the century is plastic pollution. Common forms of plastics are Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), High density and low density Poly ethylene (HDPE and LDPE), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Polypropylene, Polystyrene, and Polycarbonates. Plastic is completely generated on land and 80% of the waste is disposed off on the land. We see the parks of our cities, drainages, water sources all littered and blocked by plastic bags, containers and remains of consumer goods. Addition of plastics to various components of our environment and consequent deleterious effects due to its non-biodegradability is now acquiring grave consequences on the environment and our health.

Plastic carry bags • Take about 1000 years to degrade • Are made of non-renewable fossil fuels • Endanger wildlife, as annually more than 10 lakh birds and 1 lakh mammals and sea turtles die, either from eating plastic or getting entangled in Plastic Effect of Plastic waste and plastic pollution on the environment Plastic Bags Litter the Landscape Once they are used, most plastic bags go into landfill, or rubbish tips. Each year more and more plastic bags are ending up littering the environment. Once they become litter, plastic bags find their way into our waterways, parks, beaches, gutters and streets. And, if they are burnt, they infuse the air with toxic fumes. Effects on Human Beings The quality of the air we breathe, the water we drink or bathe on, and the earth in which we grow our food has an immense effect on our health. A

H¥$^H$mo ݶyO

recent US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention Study found that about 93 percent of the US population has Bisphenol A, a chemical that can be found in canned goods and in hard, clear plastic items (including baby bottles), in their body. The major chemicals that go into the making of plastic are highly toxic and pose serious threat to living beings of all species on earth. Some of the constituents of plastic such as benzene are known to cause cancer. Recycling of plastic is associated with skin and respiratory problems, resulting from exposure to and inhalation of toxic fumes, especially hydrocarbons. Plastic Bags Kill Animals About 100,000 animals such as cows, dogs and penguins are killed every year due to plastic bags. Many animals ingest plastic bags, mistaking them for food, and therefore die. And worse, the ingested plastic bag remains intact even after the death and decomposition of the animal. Thus, it lies around in the landscape where another victim may ingest it. Effect on Ocean Wildlife This plastic can affect marine wildlife in two important ways; by entangling creatures, and by being swallowed. Over 260 species, including invertebrates, turtles, fish, seabirds and mammals, have been reported to ingest or become entangled in plastic debris, resulting in impaired movement and feeding, reduced reproductive output, lacerations, ulcers, and finally death. Petroleum is required to Produce Plastic Bags As it is, petroleum products are diminishing and getting more expensive day by day, since we have been using this non-renewable resource increasingly. Petroleum is vital for our energy requirements – for our factories, transport, heating, lighting, and so on. Without viable alternate sources of energy yet on the horizon, if the supply of petroleum were to be turned off, it would lead to practically the whole world grinding to a halt. Surely, this precious resource should not be wasted on producing plastic bags, should it? Plastic damages the ground water resources Not only does plastic cause damage to the ocean, but it can also damage groundwater sources. Many regions are already facing issues due to plastic pollution. Plastic toxins in dumps and from litter can seep into the groundwater, which people drink every day. Environment problems • It blocks the open sewage system and results in stagnation of sewage paving way for the mosquitoes which leads to the spread of diseases. Half of NOIDA’s sewage pipes are clogged with plastic bags. • Plastic dumped on the soil prevents water percolation into the water table. • It affects the very structure of soil. • Water stagnating on the plastics strewn on the land becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes which, in turn, produce diseases. • Cattle eat plastic and die as a result thereof. • Burning of plastics releases toxins into the atmosphere which, in turn, causes dreadly Cancer. • Plastic being non-biodegradable, all the associated problems become perennial.


Some practical hints to combat and reduce Plastic Pollution • Put produce in paper, canvas or other healthy-fiber bags. • Use Paper bags, wax paper bags, cloth napkins, or re-useable sandwich boxes for food articles. • Use only glass bottles or cans. • Pre-bagged produce not only uses wasteful packaging, but also tends to come from farther away, consuming more of our dwindling oil supplies in transport. • Tiffin (stainless steel food containers) are a long tradition in India. They store food well, have longer life than Tupper Ware and its look-alikes (you’ve probably seen the fading, corroding, and chipping that occurs to these plastic containers) and are much more hygienic. • Look for and reward earth-friendly packaging choices. Refuse plastic cutlery. • Re-adopt the Matka and Surahi for drinking water on train travel, instead of plastic water bottles.

Be conscious and reasonably environment friendly • Shop eco-friendly with best plastic • Get rid of bottled water • Forget ‘to-go containers’ made of plastic • Recycle Everything Plastic Let us strive to minimise the use of plastic carry-bags and plastic containers in our lives.

ENITH means “the imaginary point where the maximum inherent energy is available and actually everyone possesses it.” It depends on the individual as to how he/she brings it out and uses it in difficult situations. Difficulties are part of life and how we react to them determines our course of life. There are many inspiring people who overcame their difficulties and reached great milestones. I would like to share my story where ZENITH POWER helped me to change completely as a person and how to look at life.



In 2007, I got a Silver Medal in national level for 5K Speed Walk. Also at state level I had obtained different positions; 1st, 2nd and 3rd in 5K Run, 5K Speed Walk & 1500 Meter many times. Apart from these, in 2007 I secured a 2nd position at national level; my best performance ever. I also participated in 3.3 km and 11 km running, at Surat level, and secured I and III position respectively.

The turning point of my life In 2013, I met with a major accident, I fell from a height of 20ft and suffered from compression fracture in my two spines; L2 & L4. Along with it, both my ankles were badly ruptured. I was bed-ridden for 35 days at hospital and 65 days at home. I was able to recover only because of the support of my family and well-wishes of my Urea Pariwar. At that point, everyone advised me not to participate in any athletic events in future at any cost as there was fracture in my backbone spines.

Zenith power I strongly believe that there is a point where the power of SUCCESS is maximum; it means everyone has an ability to do anything in any situation given if we use that inherent energy with effective POSITIVE efforts in right direction. With this viewpoint, I was determined about the predefined goal of my life. I decided to change my athletic event to participate in Half Marathon Long Running 21.10 KM instead of 5 KM, or 1500 Meter and started practicing accordingly.

Success finally!

Failure again and again This year, I participated in “Run for New India” on 25 February for Half Marathon 21.1 KM along with runners from different countries including professionals. I failed miserably in that event as I collapsed 150 meters before the finishing line due to muscle cramps. At that moment, I made up mind with zenith power and decided that I would accomplish it at any cost. I completed the race by simply walking the remaining distance and my timing was 2 Hours 47 Minutes & 27 Seconds. Obviously, it was a very bad timing.

I analysed my mistakes and started practicing again with improved techniques. On 23 April 2018, I participated in Half Marathon of 21.01 KM in which at national level and secured 12th Rank. My timing was 2 Hours 8 minutes & 57 Seconds. It is my best timing so far. Our General Manager (Production) Shri A K Das told in control room, “Jab bhi main PARMAR ko dekhta hu to miracle lagta hai” which was a great reward for me. I hope little kids of our KRIBHCO PARIWAR can draw inspiration from this article. At the end, I would like to say, “Keep persistently trying with positive attitude and keep moving in the right direction without fearing failure.” – Suresh Parmar

Farmers Development



Over a period of time, it was observed that farmers are hesitant to adopt new farm technology unless their whole system is likely to be benefited economically and socially. Farmers are also deeply attached to their fields, livestock and cooperative societies as these are their lifelines. They are also equally concerned about their family welfare including health, children education as well as improvement in rural areas where they spend most of their life time. After carefully considering the above observations, KRIBHCO adopted the Farming Model which has 5 components: farmers, his fields, livestock, family and cooperative society, all located in rural environment of his village. Since KRIBHCO is a cooperative identity governed by seven principles of cooperation.


gricultural income is the main strength of farmers. A large number of farmes are members of our member cooperatives. KRIBHCO with its large dedicated team of agriculture professionals continued its significant contribution along with other serious players in latest farm technology transfer and other rural welfare schemes for improving the profitability of farming community. Since 1984, two years ahead of Hazira urea plant production, KRIBHCO started transferring improved farm technology under ‘Benefit to Farmers’ programmes, indicating a real concern for farmers, their cooperative societies and rural areas. In the past 30 years, KRIBHCO has actively reached more than 1.38 crore farmers benefiting them directly by raising their farm income through 95,000 customised programmes. This makes an average one programme/day/state which shows the magnitude of our transfer of technology programmes. KRIBHCO has evolved a strong promotional strategy involving about 300 agricultural graduates and post-graduates to uplift farming community through its Farm Advisory Services. KRIBHCO has been organizing technology transfer programmes in more than 16 states through the highly trained field force whose skills are upgraded regularly.


A§H$ 59, OZdar-OyZ 2018 

During 2017-18, KRIBHCO organized 5543 programmes for the farming community such as Farmers Meetings, Crop Shows, Field Demonstrations, Field Days, Cooperative Conferences, Group Discussions, Soil Testing Campaign, Seed Grower Conference etc. benefiting 6.04 lakh farmers and cooperatives across the country.

Strengthening cooperatives and rural development always remained a top priority for KRIBHCO. In this direction, 106 Cooperative Societies were adopted, 19,468 cooperative managers were trained through 173 Cooperative conferences and workshops. The society also organized 34 Income Generation Programmes and 62 Health Campaigns for livestock and humans, promoted 30 water facilities which includes micro-irrigation systems for crops in rain fed areas and Rural Sports for integrated rural development. Storage-cum-community centre scheme, started on the occasion of India’s Golden Jubilee celebration, is still continuing with 198 centers sanctioned and 181 completed and being used fully. KRIBHCO Krishi Pramarsh Kendra, a high-tech centre at KRIBHCO Bhawan, NOIDA continued free consultancy to farm-related issues. The centre also propagated efficient and balanced use of fertilizer by testing 6,718 soil samples collected scientifically free of cost (3,347 for micro-nutrients and 3,371 samples for macronutrients & irrigation water) from 15 states. Results along with the recommendations were forwarded through electronic medium to farmers at their doorstep, apart from using KRIBHCO website for display of results. Pramarsh Kendra also provided latest information on weather, rainfall, temperature, relative humidity, monsoon movement etc. to help in planning farm operations and mid-term corrections in the event of crop failure, generally through KRIBHCO Kisan Helpline. Directors of Agriculture of all states were informed about educational programmes conducted and soil samples tested from their states along with district-wise deficiency noticed in various soil samples. KRIBHCO also joined hands with ICAR, State Agriculture Universities, and State Cooperative Federations for free soil testing and technology transfer which was thankfully acknowledged and appreciated at all platforms. As a step towards modernization, KRIBHCO continued to promote Information Communication Technology (ICT) through KRIBHCO Kisan helpline using e-mail, phone, computer and KRIBHCO website for informing farmers about latest farm technology along with traditional tools. Information on monthly farm operations are also made available on website.

Improvement in the reliability of electrical system of Ammonia Cooling Towers Shri N Sambasiva Rao, MD, inaugurated the 11 KV substation of Ammonia Cooling Tower Area on 1 May 2018 and dedicated it to KRIBHCO. To improve reliability of Ammonia Cooling Towers the surrounding of cooling tower always remain moist. Therefore, electrical panels installed in this area have to continuously face moist and cold air. The 11 KV panels of this area have shown sign of deterioration of insulation. So as a proactive approach a new 11 KV switchgear with state of the art design, manufactured by M/S Schneider, is purchased and installed during last ATR of Ammonia I plants. The new panels are so designed that preventive maintenance can be carried out safely even when one of the cooling tower is in operation. All engineering activities were done in-house and by constant follow ups with supplier the panels were delivered within short period 80 days against contractual delivery period of 240 days.

Energy Saving Equipment at KRIBHCO, Surat Plant Shri N Sambasiva Rao, MD, inaugurated the Energy Saving Equipment at KRIBHCO, Surat Plant on 1 May 2018. KRIBHCO is striving hard to reduce energy consumption. Major pumps and compressors are being studied minutely to explore possibility of saving in energy consumptions. One of the such large machines of urea plant are liquid Ammonia Transfer Pumps(P1). These pumps are driven by 850KW, 3.3 KV motors. Speed of these pump need to varied as per process requirement. Until now the speed of pump was varied by a hydraulic device (Torque converter). This device was found inefficient. Therefore, a detail study was conducted in-house and it was decided to remove Torque converter from the pump train and the speed of pump was proposed to be varied using frequency converter. A microprocessor based variable frequency drive, matching the capacity and characteristic of pump, is purchased from Japan and commissioned in Urea plants. One P1 pump of each of the four stream is modified and total energy saving of about 550KW (equivalent to 550 flood lights/OTG) is achieved. The payback period for this new installation is about 30 months.
