Upper Coonoor Police Station,

Sub: Domestic LPG cylinder – missing – lodging of compliant – reg.


With reference to the above, I am to inform your goodself that

1) I am a consumer of LPG at M/s, Nilgiris Gas Agencies, Dealer for Indane Gas, Coonoor –
Consumer No.18017. I have booked a cylinder on 12.04.2004 and though the delivery boy from
M/s, Nilgiris Gas Agencies, Coonoor has came to my residence on 13.04.2004 , I was away to
School to pick up my daughter and hence, the cylinder was not delivered on that day. However,
on 15.04.2004, I received the cylinder at my residence from the above agency.
2) As my wife is also working, I told the delivery boy on 15.04.2004, if my quarters is found locked
for the first time when he comes for delivery of a cylinder, he may come again on the next day
also, so that I can make arrangements to receive the cylinder.
3) In my quarters, there is a small room / space available in front wherein I used to keep the
cylinder along with shoe - stand. However, this place is also secured one provided with half glass
and half wooden door and from outside it will not be possible to see the cylinder from a distance.
Hence, only the delivery boy from the Gas Agency (and my colleagues working in the campus)
have the knowledge on where the cylinder is kept, other than my family members.
4) On 19.04.2004, I left from my quarters by 8.30 AM to office. Usually the wooden door leading
to the hall only will be locked and the half glass paneled door after that small area where the
cylinder was kept, is only latched. On 19th also, I did only latched the front door. By morning
the cylinder was very much available at the same place. Again by 11.10 AM after completing
technical work in the rearing house which is nearby to my quarters, I am sure that the door
remain latched.
5) But my colleagues who crossed by my quarters around 11.50AM, found that the front door was
open. As the other wooden door is locked they didn’t bother. The servant-maid who came by
12.45 PM also, didn’t notice that the cylinder was missing. When I came back from office by
1PM, then only it was found out that the cylinder was missing.
6) My quarters is placed inside the campus and there are twelve quarters placed in a row
continuously and family members of other occupants are available in all other quarters through
out the day and hence, it will be difficult for an outsider to steel the cylinder.
7) My suspicion first goes to the delivery boy who knows about where the cylinder is usually kept
and he also knows that it is a recently refilled cylinder. On 19th, I came to know that the Gas van
has come to our area / nearby houses for delivery.
8) Other than him, I don’t have any body in mind who could be able to do this.

In this connection, I request you to find out the missing cylinder and render the justice.
Thanking you, Sir.
Yours Sincerely,
Copy to

2) In case of bivoltine hybrids, add another 100 – 120 kgs for 40,000
3) In case of experimental rearings, i) in composite / Cellular
populations, additional leaf is required to rear excess population
which are rejected after counting after 3rd moult. Such
requirement in cellular population is more than for composite
population. However, it will not exceed a kg per each dfls up to
3rd moult.

Sub: Requirement of Refrigerator in the Sericulture section –
Reminder request – reg.
Ref: Monthly meeting minutes/ decisions taken.

With reference to the above, I am to invite your attention on the decision taken to provide a
standby refrigerator for sericulture section during the monthly meeting as early as March, 2003. The
same matter was discussed in the recent monthly meetings also. However, till date no standby
refrigerator has been provided to the sericulture section. Since only one refrigerator is available in the
sericulture section, I once again wish to emphasize that a standby refrigerator is essential to cover up
for the excigencies. Hence, I request you to look in to the matter and make necessary arrangements for
the supply of a stand by refrigerator, immediately.

With reference to the above, I am to invite your attention to the discussion / decision taken in the
monthly review meetings as early as 2002. It was proposed to attend the electrical rewiring works for
the rearing house with CPWD earlier and as there was no response from them inspite of several
reminders (personal and written), the same matter was discussed with the Director, CSR&TI, Mysore
during his visit made to this station during and as per his advice efforts are to be taken
for getting the work done locally. However, till date, the same was not attended. Hence, I request you
make necessary arrangements to attend the same at the earliest.

1) In-charge of Sericulture section
2) Planning and execution of all experimental rearings of the station
3) Principle investigator in three projects
i) Improvement of productivity through bivoltine breeding in Indian breeds.
ii) AIMSGEP- Collaborative project with CSGRC, Hosur and
iii) Shuttle breeding approach for development of bivoltine silkworms with better plasticity
– Collaborative project with SWBL-JICA, CSRTI, Mysore.
4) Maintenance of silkworm genetic stocks, evolved breeds etc available in the station.
5) Preparation of all technical reports pertaining to sericulture section
6) Maintenance of technical registers, data analysis and presentation of progress in various technical review meetings pertaining to
sericulture section.

1) In-house testing of three SLD hybrids, SLD4 x SLD6, SLD4 x SLD8 & SLD4 x SLD9 along with CSR2 x CSR4 as control at RTI lab
of CSRTI, Mysore was undertaken during the year 2003-04 and successfully completed.
2) Combining ability studies of CSR and CNR breeds was successfully completed with final hybrid test undertaken during the year
2003-04 and identified one bivoltine hybrid, CSR13 x CNR3 which meets out all target characters.
3) All India Mulberry Silkworm Evaluation Programme given by CSGRC, Hosur was completed as envisaged in the project.
4) Formulated one new project on shuttle breeding concept in consultation with Dr.H.K.Basavaraj, DD (Seri), CSRTI, Mysore and
initiated as a collaborative programme.
5) As this station has been renamed, proposed various programmes in four broader concepts / area of work that are to be carried out , for
the consideration of experts (of which the shuttle breeding is finalized).
6) Consequent upon the transfer of Sri.B.T.Sreenivas, SRO (M), shouldered the additional responsibilities of Moriculture section charge
for six months as instructed by superiors as stop-gap arrangement.
7) Carried-out onfarm trial of new HT hybrid, 8HT x 5HT.
8) Under revenue generation, against the target of Rs.20,000/- on sale realization of excess experimental coccons, Rs.28,538/- was

As a result of utmost sincerity and dedication in the various research programmes and as a principle scientist & sectional in-charge, I
consider that the following achievements are significant and I believe my contribution is immense:

1) All three SLD hybrids subjected for in-house testing have performed better than CSR2 x CSR4 and one hybrid SLD4 x SLD8 out that
has been proposed for Race Authorisation Programme of CSB.
2) The superior BV hybrid CSR13 x CNR3 identified has shown excellent quantitative characters (Raw silk >19.5%, AVFL >1100m)
along with very good cocoon uniformity.

Though the objectives and goals envisaged in the programmes are realized positively, I wish to mention few general constraints faced:

1) Though the station is blessed with semi-temperate / cooler climate which undoubtedly helps in handling productive bivoltine silkworm
breeds, the quality of mulberry has been fluctuating more.
2) Infrastructural facilities to carry out silkworm breeding programme such as plastic trays, quality electrical appliances, rewiring of
rearing house etc ., may be provided.
1) Presented a poster paper entitled
“ Identification of productive bivoltine hybrids of Bombyx mori.L” by
V.Lakshmanan,, E.Rajalakshmi, H.K.Basavaraja, B.K.Kariappa and
S.B.Dandin. In National Conference on Tropical Sericulture for Global
Competitiveness on 5-7th, November, 2003 at Central Sericultural
Research & Training Institute, Mysore.
