                India is the third largest producer of natural rubber with an annual production of 640,000 tonnes while Thailand producing 2,615,000 tonnes followed by Indonesia 1,630,000 tonnes per annum.  In the Indian production, Kerala contributes to 85%, Tamil Nadu 4% followed by Tripura, etc. 

(c)    Administrative Set up : The management of the Corporation is vested with the Board of Directors.  The Governor of Tamil Nadu appoints the Board of Directors and the Chairman.  One of the Director is appointed as the Managing Director for the management of the Corporation.  The total area of the Corporation is divided into five Divisions, two Factories and one Vigilance unit for administrative convenience.  The Divisions are headed by the Divisional Managers, Factories are headed by Factory Officers and the Vigilance Unit is headed by Vigilance Officer.  The Managing Director exercises administrative, financial and operational control over the Divisional Managers, Factory Officers and Vigilance Officer.  The Managing Director is assisted by a Joint Managing Director.  The overall sanctioned strength of staff and Officers  of the Corporation is 156 apart from 1513 skilled and unskilled workers as on the date of updation   on 8-1-2013

(d)    Functions and Duties :The basic function of Arasu Rubber Corporation Limited is to harvest the natural rubber (latex) and to process it into concentrated rubber latex (Cenex) and rubber sheets of different grades through the two Factories.

                   The other major activities are,

  • Sale of Rubber trees
  • Regeneration of Rubber Plantations
  • Protection and Conservation of Plantation
  • Seed Collection
  • Nursery Development
  • Employment Generation
  • Products & their uses
  • Field Management System
  • Field Supervision
  • Factory processing of Natural rubber
  • Sales

Sale of Rubber trees: The matured rubber coupes proposed for harvesting are owned by Forest Department.  The Corporation sells the old and senile rubber trees by tender cum auction.  Therefore the proposed over matured rubber coupes fit for harvesting, is to be identified and surveyed in the preceeding year itself and the number of trees is to be enumerated and the fair price is fixed by a Committee, under the Chairmanship of Joint Managing Director with District Forest Officer, Kanniyakumari Division, Divisional Manager concerned, Forest Utilisation Officer and the Vigilance Officer as members of the Committee.  The fair price fixed by the Committee is to be approved by the Government.  Then the sale is notified and conducted by Tender cum auction method and the sale is to be confirmed by the Government. 
               
Regeneration of Rubber Plantations :The aged and unproductive rubber trees are sold and the rubber plantation is regenerated in a phased manner.   Felling of old rubber plantations raised by the Tamil Nadu Forest Department in the Reserved Forest areas of Kanniyakumari District are concentrated mostly in the eastern wing.  Therefore, there is urgent need to take up harvesting of old trees raised between 1960-70 in the erstwhile rubber divisions like Keeriparai, Paraliar, Manalodai, Kalikesam and some of the earlier plantations raised in Mylar, Chithar and Maruthamparai units.

                   The replanting of rubber is being taken up with high yielding clones like RRII 105, PB 260, etc. from the year 2002-03.  An area of 200 ha. to 300 ha. is proposed, for replanting purpose, approximately equal to the area of felling, so that the felled areas may be replanted in the subsequent years.

The details of high yielding rubber plantation raised during the year 1994-95 to 2013-14 are given below:

  1. Cenex [Latex 60% DRC]
  2. Skim crepe
  3. Ribbed Smoked sheets [RSS].  The grades of RSS are,

                              RSS 1x, RSS 1, RSS 2, RSS 3, RSS 4, RSS 5 and RSS Cuttings.

 

Estate Brown Crepe [EBC].  The grades of EBC are,

                                    EBC S1x, EBC 1x, EBC 2x, EBC 3x

Cenex         :  Surgical gloves, Condoms, Nipples, Balloons &  Mattresses

RSS                 :  Heavy vehicle tyres & tubes, Aero tyres, Cycle tube, Belt, etc.

EBC           :  Fan belt, Cycle tube, Tyre re-treading, etc.

Skim Crepe    :  Low quality Chappals

Field Management System

                   The plantation area in the divisions are subdivided into coupes.  The coupes are further subdivided into tasks, each task consisting of 270-350 tappable trees. (Newly formed tasks are having 320-400 tappable trees)  The rubber trees are categorized into four grades based on the yielding potential of the trees.

                   The grades and their respective production norms are as below:

Field Supervision

        For each division, the services of 2 to 3 Forest Range Officers and 5 to 6 Foresters/Field Assistants are utilized for effective field supervision.  Apart from these officials Tapping Supervisors are given charge of 27 tasks to supervise a day.  The Managing Director and Joint Managing Director used to inspect the field activities in a periodical manner.

                   Rubber trees are tapped regularly on D2 & D3 System of Tapping.  Once the yield from rubber trees declines the Round tapping System is adopted to get the maximum out of the aged trees.  Once the trees reache the felling stage, the slaughter tapping method is adopted to drain out the remaining latex in the trees.

                   The tapped field latex are collected after weighment and treated with Ammonia and packed in barrels in the Collection centres.  These field latex barrels are transported to the assigned factories on daily basis.

  • DAHP (Di-Ammonium Hydrogen Phosphate) added to desludge, to remove magnesium content which will settle down as sediments.
  • Stored in the tank for 18 hours.
  • Centrifuged through machine to get Cenex 60% DRC
  • Ammonia is added to maintain at 0.8% as it will evaporate during process & Lauric acid is added to boost the Mechanical Stability Time (MST)
  • Standardised Cenex (60%) is tested for ISI specification, ie. For low Volatile Fatty Acid (VFA) of 0.05%
  • Packed in barrels of 194 kgs./205 litres.

 

EBC:

  • Scrap and Field Lump are hand washed in washing tanks
  • Washed scrap is milled through milling machine to get wet crepe
