eco‑friendly: Assocham Bangalore: A large number of domestic companies are opting for eco-friendly packaging with many consumers shifting to sustainable and green packaging amid rising environmental concerns, according to a recent study by apex industry body Assocham. The sustainable packaging sector is growing at a faster pace of about 25 percent per year compared to the overall packaging industry which is growing at about 20 percent annually, according to a study on Domestic Green Packaging Industry prepared by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham). “Flexible packaging market in India is currently worth about Rs 14,000 crore and likely to reach Rs 22,950 crore by 2015,” said Assocham secretary-general D S Rawat, releasing the findings of the study. “Packaging adds to the product value and preserves its quality, be it food or non-food articles, electronic goods, machinery and

plenty of other products,” said Rawat. Consumer behaviour has a huge impact on the packaging industry as consumers today focus on greater value for money in their purchases. Companies are laying more emphasis on green packaging. Assocham interacted with about 200 representatives including the chairmen, managing directors, CEOs and directors of food and beverage companies, consumer packaged goods, shopkeepers, wholesalers and retailers in the city, to ascertain the impact and advantages of sustainable packaging on highly fragmented Indian packaging industry. Nearly 40 percent of manufacturers said they are increasingly adopting renewable packaging technologies, environmentally friendly light materials and cost-effective methods that lead to reduced fuel and water consumption, decreased costs and increased consumer awareness which in turn leads to increased

sales. Rising environmental concerns about carbon emissions, dearth of natural resources together with increased health awareness and waste reduction targets are cer-

tain key growth drivers of green packaging innovations in India, highlights the Assocham survey. About 55 percent of respondents said they are gradually reducing usage of non-decomposable plastic bags and seeking support of local gro-

spondents said they have started using bio-degradable materials like sugarcane and bioplastics, and laying emphasis on upgraded packaging material for all products. About 25 percent of respondents said that they are working towards developing newer technologies based on the properties of plastic for increased revenue growth as its a significant constituent for packaging. Growing middle class with increased purchasing power, liberalisation, globalisation and an organised retail sector are growth c e r y catalysts of Indian packaging s t o r e s , industry, points out the Asv e g e t a b l e socham study.

Bangalore: “The state government will call the state legislative session at the prescribed time,” said chief minister Sadananda Gowda. Gowda was listening to public grievances at Janatha Darshan at his official residence Krishna. Gowda said, “Opposition party leaders don’t speak during the session. They only make protests and ‘dharnas’ inside the House. They speak only in the streets and in public. I appeal to the opposition parties to take part actively in the coming session and participate very constructively in building the state.” “The opposition parties have been making allegations against the ruling party but it is baseless. Whenever the ruling party makes a mistake, the opposition parties should give a chance for us to rectify it. Simply making allegations is not the solution.” The chief minister added.

Continued from page 1 The demonstrations by the disaffected coincided with the Group of 20 meeting in Paris, where finance ministers and central bankers from major economies were holding talks on the debt and deficit crises afflicting many Western countries. The Occupy Wall Street movement has gathered steam for a month, culminating with the global day of action. It remains unclear what momentum the movement, which has been driven by social media, has beyond Saturday. While most rallies were relatively small and barely held up traffic, the Rome event drew tens of thousands of people and snaked through the city center for kilometres.

Hundreds of hooded, masked demonstrators rampaged in some of the worst violence seen in the Italian capital in years, setting cars ablaze, breaking bank and shop windows and destroying traffic lights and signposts. Police fired volleys of tear gas and used water cannon to try to disperse militant protesters who were hurling rocks, bottles and fireworks, but clashes went on into the evening. Smoke bombs set off by protesters cast a pall over a sea of red flags and banners bearing slogans denouncing economic policies the protesters say are hurting the poor. The violence sent many peaceful demonstrators and local residents near the Colosseum and St John's Basilica running into hotels and churches for safety.

Judiciary very active in state: Pejawar seer

19‑yr‑old girl hangs self in Mysore

Bangalore Beat Bureau Udupi: The judicial system in Karnataka is very active, sending shivers down the spines of corrupt politicians, said Udupi Pejawar Math seer Vishvesha Theertha Swamiji here today. The judiciary has upheld the values of law and cornered the corrupt politicians, he opined. Asked about BJP senior leader L K Advani’s rathyatra coming to the state, the seer said, “It is no crime for the rathyatra to come to the state. I believe that Advani too is against corruption. The rathayatra is against corruption and has spoken out against it several times.”

“Advani condemned activities of former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa when allegations of corruption surfaced against the state leader. Advani was instrumental in getting Yeddyurappa to resign from the chief minister’s post for his alleged involvement in illegal mining activities and indictment by the Lokayukta report,” the seer said. “The BJP should take a final decision against Yeddyurappa after the courts decide cases against him. Going to the jail does not mean that Yeddyurappa is guilty. The cases are still allegations. The courts will decide and rule on them,” he said.

Bishnoi wins Hisar by‑poll Hisar: Kuldeep Bishnoi of the Haryana Janhit Congress( Bhajan Lal) won the Hisar Lok Sabha by-elections defeating his nearest rival Ajay Singh Chautala of the Indian National Lok Dal by 6323 votes. Bishnoi was also supported by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Congress candidate Jai Prakash came a distant third despite his party being in power in the state. Kuldeep Bishnoi, who stood at 355941 votes, defeated Ajay Chautala, who got 349618 votes and Jai Prakash, who got 149785 votes. Even though the main battle was between Bishnoi and Chautala; Anna Hazare call to not vote in favour of the Congress candidate had given the by-election an interesting twist. Bishnoi, however, declined to credit Team Anna for his win and instead said that Anna Hazare should have targeted all corrupt parties and not just the Congress.

Following Team Anna's antiCongress campaign the seat had become a prestige issue for the party even though during the 2009 Lok Sabha Elections, too, the party had finished third. Bishnoi's father and former Congress leader Bhajan Lal had won the seat in 2009 after forming his own outfit. The by-elections were held after Lal died.

All sporting bodies will be under RTI: Maken New Delhi: Sports minister Ajay Maken unveiled his new revised Sports Bill today. Hinting at the BCCI's opposition to it, Maken said that the Bill will enhance greater transparency in the functioning of sports federations. He added that sporting bodies which do not want to come under the RTI raise suspicion. "We strongly feel the functioning of the sports federations should be transparent. If they oppose it then there is something wrong," Maken said. Maken also said that all sport-

ing bodies will be in the ambit of the RTI with an exclusion clause provided to protect certain information. He said that unlike other countries, the news of Indian sportspersons' medical health and fitness is in the public domain which is a disadvantage to the players. Since the BCCI has come under NADA, Maken said the Sports Bill will allow the BCCI to follow the same policy that is followed internationally. "Another aspect is that our

players medical health or state of fitness is in public domain which isn't there in other countries. This will be a disadvantage to our players," said Maken. Questioning the age and norms tenure, Maken said, "We have age and tenure norms as we said earlier. It is something which forms a part of universal rules of good governance. When 70 years is the age norm for International Olympic Council, their office bearers can't be more than that so why should our office bearers be more than 70?"

Maruti's plant resumes partial production New Delhi: The strike at Maruti Suzuki India's (MSI) Manesar plant entered its 11th day on Monday, with workers protesting outside the factory premises, but the company said it has resumed partial production at the plant. The company also said production at its main plant at Gurgaon has been resumed after a

two-day closure last week due to component supply constraints from Suzuki Powertrain. In the meantime, the Haryana Labour Department has called for a meeting today of the management and striking workers of MSI, SPIL and Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) to find a solution.

"Production has started in a limited way at the company s plant in Manesar. To start with, the weld shop has been made operational," a company spokesperson said. The company resumed operations at Manesar with some of the trained workers from among those who have refused to join the strike, he added.

Farmers threaten to disrupt Formula One race Greater Noida: A fortnight before the first ever Formula One race in India, the farmers who lost their land to the project are up in arms. They held a Mahapanchayat on Sunday and issued an open letter to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, threatening to disrupt the F1 race if their demands were not met. The Budh International Project, one of the world's most challenging motor sports tracks, has been built at the cost of $400 million. However, the locals are unhappy with the same. "The land was taken for industries but no industry has been made," said a farmer. "A lot of people are yet to receive their

compensations," said another villager. According to some other villager, the road to the girls’ school has also been blocked by the track and now they have to travel 9 km to go to school everyday. In the Mahapanchayat held on Sunday, the message that came across was that the farmers had more participation in the land. Farmers who have lost land have threatened to stop the F1 race if their claims are not heeded. The villagers demand that the compensation be at par with that given to farmers in Patwari village and industries be set up on the acquired land. They are also concerned about job prospects in the upcoming projects and the reopening of roads blocked due to

construction work. According to the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority officials, the land was acquired under emergency clause for Special Development Zone and not industries. Therefore, promoters Jaypee are obligated to use 35 per cent of the total area for sporting infrastructure. Jaypee group claims villagers would benefit. "The Budh circuit is build on a land which we have acquired from the villagers and the way we are developing will benefit the villagers as well," said Jaypee VP Cobcom. However, villagers are not satisfied with the trickle down theory. They want a concrete solution ahead of F1's gala opening.
