A reply received from the Secretary
I am sorry to say that you are wrong. I was analyzing the Indian Rubber Statistics from 1999 onwards. By purchasing Annual Rubber Statistics published by the Rubber Board periodically. Kindly verify the following spread sheets published online. If I done a mistake I have to correct the same.
I request the Secretary of Rubber Board to verify the above analysis published by me and give me a reply as soon as possible.
The latest annual rubber statistics Vol 35 of 2012 also purchased by me to compile the details published by the Rubber Board.
The international price of RSS 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 at Bangkok, Thailand are collected and converted to INR by the Rubber Board to publish on the site. Price Latex 60% drc and SMR 20 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the same manner. Domestic market price at Kottayam and Kochi collected and published by the Board. The sister concern of MRF the printed media Malayalamanorama publishing daily the price of RSS 4 and 5 below 3 rupees on Rubber board price. The same market price is followed by the local Dealers in Kerala. Thus purchase by the small scale dealers as ISS is a common factor. The profit divides between middlemen and the quality sheets will reach MRF go-down at low rate on a comparison of grade.
The monthly rubber statistical news http://rubberboard.org.in/monstatsdisplay.asp published by the Rubber Board can’t tally the monthly average price of Latex 60% drc http://rubberboard.org.in/monthlyrubberprice.asp Here is an evidence of Export of wet weight of 16056 Tonnes exported at higher price when the drc was 9634 Tonnes. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=ml&key=0AsBRb8VTiF95dHF0UkpsbEk1S0dsdzRvQUszZTZlVGc&gid=1 The exporters of natural rubber is controlled and licensed by the Rubber Board. The low priced export available in the spread sheet updated from Indian Rubber Statistics vol 35 of 2012. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AsBRb8VTiF95cFRzWENaU3gzUWttdHZrSnBlemdLRXc&output=html The export of Natural Rubber from India to Malaysia for the year 2011-12 was 4273 Tonnes at a value of 688,000,000 rupees at an average of 161.01/kg. As per the instructions of WTO Malaysia can implement an anti dumping duty which may be the deference between market price and imported price.
The benefits of export import from WTO are encouraged by the irregularities on price. it may be the reason for the deposits of black money at Swiss Bank. The names of Arun Mamen and Rahul Mamen related with black money we know from the English and Hindi Media. Malayalam media knowingly avoided their name from publishing. the data of import published by the rubber board is not sufficient to calculate the irregularities. https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p1eoUtcZuHJfjLuKYZwqKHA
An analysis of Indian Rubber Statistics published by a Farmer is not available in any other sites. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AjJUDQUJ7CS-cDFlb1V0Y1p1SEplNi00R21hd3BfTUE&output=html which contains a missing figure obtained from the total availability by adding opening stock, production and import can’t tally by the subtraction of export, consumption and balance stock. http://sites.google.com/a/keralafarmeronline.com/missing/ Missing is always not the same. It will continue for few years as negative and positive alternately. negative missing is that which figures of balance stock is greater than actual stock and positive missing wise versa. This missing had a great role in price fluctuation. When the stock is higher Rubber Board publishes a positive missing (Stock below actual) to permit the import with out anti dumping duty.
The joint venture of political parties, bulk dealers, rubber board and the media are responsible for the price fluctuation of natural rubber. The speculation of media is supported by the statistics and economic experts.
Rubber Board is responsible for the price fluctuations of natural rubber not only in India, but also at International market

Natural Rubber (NR) in sheet forms is the oldest and the most popular type. Two types of sheet rubbers are produced and marketed in the international market, namely the Ribbed Smoked Sheets (RSS) and the Air Dried Sheets (ADS). Among these, RSS is the most popular and is available for volume consumption.
RSS is used as raw materials in industrial sectors such as tyre industry, which is the biggest consumer. The second biggest users are rubber elastics, rubber erasers, rubber tubes and shoes and rubber sole. RSS can be divided into following 6 categories.
Ribbed smoked sheet no.1 Extra (RSS 1 X). This category of rubber sheet must be wholly flawless and totally not mouldy. Ribbed smoked sheet no.1 (RSS 1). This category of rubber sheet can be a little mottled on the surface of the sheet and on the wrapper but must be totally flawless.
Ribbed smoked sheet no.2 (RSS 2). RSS 2 can sustain mottled and rust on the surface, in the sheet and on the package but mouldy condition must not exceed 5 per cent f the samples.
Ribbed smoked sheet no.3 (RSS 3). RSS 3 accounts for more than 80 per cent of all RSS production. Mouldy condition of this category is the same as that of RSS 2 but must not exceed 10 per cent of the samples.
Ribbed smoked sheet no.4 (RSS 4). Mouldy condition is the same as RSS 2 and RSS 3 but must not exceed 20 per cent of the samples.
Ribbed smoked sheet no.5 (RSS 5). Mouldy condition is the same as RSS 2, RSS 3 and RSS 4 but must not exceed 30 per cent of the samples.
Translated the document in Hindi from Malayalam and shared with Sri Arvind Kejriwal with edit option. I am confident that he should understand the details of corruption of Rubber Board led by Political Parties. An open challenge with rubber growers done by this statutory body is supported by the Indian Media. We have to change it. AAP Kerala can do a good job to spread the irregularities in front of common man at grass root level.
Waste management can be incorporated in our daily life in a very simple way. We can follow the method adopted by koduvally Panchayath of Kozhikode District, Kerala State. They have taken up it as a Group mobilisation activity of Animal Husbandry Department under ATMA 2012-13. For this program there was a total allotment of Rs. 60,000/-. 12 groups (Women) each having 5 members were selected and the fund allocation is Rs. 5000/- per Group.
In the program it has planned to collect waste from Koduvally Town and process the biodegradable waste by “Thumboomuzhi Method of Aerobic Composting Technique”. The program is well supported by the Grama Panchayath, Kudumbasree, Shop Owners, Agriculture and health departments and the Public. Three round discussions were held, a committee is formed for the implementation of the program and the program is planned as follows.
There are around 250 shops in Koduvally Town including fish, meat and vegetable markets. Shop owners are requested to deposit their wastes in two separate bins. One for bio degradable waste and the other for plastic and other inorganic waste.
For the implementation of the program following things are purchased. Five Ferro Cement Tanks (Bins), Thumboormuzhi Model for depositing and processing waste for Rs.42,500/-. These tanks are Kerala Veterinary University’s developed products. Transportation cost from Trisur to Kozhikode was Rs. 5750/-. Also purchased one Urbana, one Net, one shovel, one trowel, 3 large buckets, Registers and a few other items.
One major issue which had to be addressed was where to install the waste bins. Mrs. Khadeeja, Parabathukavu has agreed to take the responsibility to place the bins in her compound. Another important aspect was proper management of the bin ie. to fill the bin with optimum levels of cow dung, source of carbon like dry leaves, put the waste correctly into the bin with good care and attention. The members of the selected Groups had been given a detailed training on Thumboormuzhi Model of Aerobic Composting Technique. Mrs.Kadeeja, Parabathukavu has agreed to do the bin management also. For these two jobs the committee has agreed to pay her Rs. 100/- as rent for keeping bins and Rs. 100/- for bin management Daily.
Three persons have been selected to collect the waste from the shops in the big buckets purchased, biodegradable and other waste separately. They will be paid Rs. 150/- each daily.
Plastic waste and other unwanted non degradable wastes was another big problem. These wastes also has to be collected daily. Another Group member has agreed to manage these wastes ie. to wash, clean and dry them and keep in gummy bags. For this job also she will be paid Rs. 150/- daily. Once in a month the Panchayath will take these non degradable waste to Recycling Centres.
A small amount will be collected from each shop daily as a fee for picking up their waste. For waste up to 5 Kg s. 10/- and above 5 Kg Rs. 15 to 20/- according to the quantity of waste.
It is planned to open a joint account in the name of the Panchayath President and CDS chairperson in Koduvally Service Co-operative bank. Collected amount will be remitted to the account daily and workers involved will be paid in the weekends. Work supervision and cash accounting is entrusted to a CDS and CDS chair person will do overall supervision with the help the Panchayath Officials. The CDS and CDS Chairperson will be paid an honorarium on a monthly basis. In order to keep the bins away from rain water, embankment using mud and ecofriendly roofing is also done. Formal inauguration of the progarmme is on 1st November 2012.
Filled bins will be left for three months for processing. Processed waste is superior quality manure which can be sold. The manure will be analysed by the Agriculture Department and quality Certificate will be obtained. This high quality manure will be branded and marketed as 5 Kg paper bags by Group Members.
This programme gives importance to Women Empowerment. This programme is a great solution in waste Management for even years to come also at the same time ecofriendly and income generating.
