Tripura steps in to full force: rubber production (8/8/2019) 
just as the Centre’s outlay for rubber has shrunk by 18% from the current fiscal, the Tripura government has made a pitch to prop the country’s sagging rubber production. The north-eastern state enjoys a firm base in rubber wood production for building material and furniture.
In his inaugural speech Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma said in the one day work shop at Pragna Bhavan here today that, in Tripura out of total rubber production of about 74,000mt per anum, about 99%of the natural rubbers processed into different marketable forms like sheet rubber. Currently, Tripura accounts for only 9.4% rubber production, but it is India’s second largest rubber producing state. In the north-east region, it accounts for 58% of the rubber production, he added.
Rubber Research Institute of India (RRII), after extensive consultations with National Bureau of Soil Survey and Land Use Planning, had evaluated that about 4.5 lakh hectare of land in Tripura is suitable for rubber cultivation. This could be a big bonanza as currently the country’s total area under rubber is approximately 6 lakh hectare. The flip side is that the Centre’s budgetary outlay for rubber has never fallen as dismally as present, by nearly one-fifth. From Rs 172 crore in the current fiscal, the outlay for 2019-2020 has fallen to Rs 146 crore.The department of Industries and commerce and TIDC ltd in association with the Rubber Board and Tripura Gramin Bank, SBI as well as lead bank UBI have initiated a strategy to encourage the rubber growers , RPS etc for setting up of modern smoke houses centre. To arrange for financial assistance through the exiting schemes of PMEGP and Swabalamban.
