\ EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

3

This project is based on the study of Cluster Development of the Rice Mill Cluster of Bargarh – Attabira belt and the Scope for Credit Growth in the Cluster for State Bank of India. An insight view of the project will encompass – the objective of the study, the purpose and scope of the study, the various methods used for collecting data and their sources, further specifying the limitations of the study and drawing inferences from the learning so far. A general idea about cluster is done, followed by a thorough study on the Rice Mill Cluster of Bargarh – Attabira belt. An analysis has been done to determine the Scope available for State Bank of India for Credit Growth in the cluster. Cluster Development has emerged during the last decade as one of the most innovative and effective ways for small firm development among industry developed and developing countries. From the international experience, it is well established now that Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) gain competitiveness by forming strong relations with other firms. They also gain from linkages with service institutions in clusters of enterprises based on groups of related products. The enterprises together are better able than firms considered individually to grow rapidly, upgrade their skills, improve their productivity and technology, develop product niches and gain access to distant markets. The scope of the study is limited to the Rice Mill Cluster of Bargarh district in the state of Orissa. The diagnostic study report of the cluster has been conducted with an objective to find out present status of Rice Milling Industries, level of technology used, marketing network, availability of institutional support with regard to credit, capacity building etc. and to identify the problems being faced by them which hinders the process of development/ growth of the cluster. More emphasis will be given for promotion of both domestic and export marketing, technology up gradation, Institutional Capacity Building, quality improvement etc. The project also tries to evaluate the scope for credit growth in the cluster for State Bank of India. It is done by analyzing the Aggregative Risk Score of various Rice Mills and getting the Borrowers Rating as given by the State Bank of India.

CHAPTER – III

3.1 Meaning of cluster

25

A cluster is a concentration of economic enterprises, producing a typical product or service or a complementary range of products or services within a geographical area. A cluster of MSME is identified by the ‘product or service’ the micro or small enterprises produce and the ‘place’ where the enterprises are located.

3.2 Concept of cluster

United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) cluster development programme, in India, has worked on some assumptions to estimate the number of MSME clusters. An industrial cluster is considered to be one that has 100 or more registered enterprises. As against this, even the presence of 50 handicraft enterprises is considered to be significant for handicraft cluster. In case of a handloom cluster, there should at least be 500 handlooms in a given location.

3.3 Constituent of a cluster

A cluster consists of not only the economic enterprises that actually produce the product or service that defines the cluster but also the raw material providers, sub-contractors, buyers, exporters, machinery suppliers and the various support institutions, regulatory agencies, consultants, common facilities, transporters and all other service providers that facilitate the production directly or indirectly in the cluster. Besides there are various interest groups such as business associations, self help groups, co-operatives and NGO are that may promote business interests of various groups of enterprises in the cluster. All these entities are called cluster stakeholders.

3.4 Types of clusters

The various types of clusters can be classified as:

a) Artisan cluster:

26

An artisan cluster is characterized by the predominance of household based enterprises. Such enterprises use personal skills of the artisans to production, rather than electrically driven machinery. They are run by the family labour both in production and management of the enterprise. They produce handicraft or handloom products.

b) Industrial cluster:

An industrial cluster may have some household enterprises but is characterized by predominance of small and medium industrial enterprises with hired labourers.

c) Natural cluster:

A cluster evolved in the past due to local availability of raw material, skill or demand. Most of the clusters known in India are natural clusters. Such clusters may have been in existence for several decades and at times for centuries.

d) Induced cluster:

Induced clusters come up at a location due to specific investment policy or public provision of specialized infrastructure. These measures can lead to the creation of new clusters in that particular new area.

e) Vertical cluster:

A vertical cluster consists of one or a few large enterprises and a large number of other small supplier enterprises.
27

f) Horizontal cluster:

A horizontal cluster consists of a large number of small and medium sized enterprises that may produce and market directly while competing with one another. They may have other supplier firms in the same cluster.

g) Exporting clusters:

These are the clusters that have a primary market abroad are called as exporting clusters

h) Dynamic clusters:

Dynamic clusters demonstrate a high degree of vibrancy and high growth in the recent past.

3.5

Creation of cluster

There are essentially two components to cluster creation; the first is cluster creation, the second is cluster up gradation. Some experts claim that “any effort to build clusters from scratch is doomed to failure”. Some of the key elements for successful up gradation strategies are: • Active stewardship from a full time cluster development agent (CDA) or equivalent profession. The time commitment could be 3-5 years or more, before an initiative becomes sustainable.

28

first on a one to one basis. • Activities should involve a broad range of related firms. Upgrading will change cluster dynamics. the presence of several local training institutes had led to the development of a trained workforce. As in case of Pune food clusters response to challenging food quality standards that initially appeared to threaten the cluster’s very survival. In some cases. In the case of Ludhiana hosiery cluster. benefiting certain sorts of firm. Demanding Regulatory Standards and also a network of supporting institutions that extend beyond the tight geographical focus. • Activities over time to build trust. This means a hard look at what the cluster produces. • Securing a comprehensive policy package. financial contribution can help secure ownership. and for whom. 29 .• Existence of one or more dynamic business associations. • A demand led approach to insertion into global value chains. • Responding to external challenges can enhance collective action. Activities will likely be holistic in scope. and after that across the cluster as a whole. • Accepting the ‘tremendous heterogeneity’ in how different clusters and firms react. It does not only concentrate on ‘how’ it produces. not just those that imitate each other and compete solely on price. • Securing buy-in from a critical mass of SME’s participation will not be forthcoming unless the gains are tangible.

The members of the cluster get the advantage of easy availability of raw material. Thus it helps in the providing skilled labourers to the units. which help in the development of each and every business unit of the cluster.  Abundant clients attracted by the cluster tradition: A cluster attracts a lot of clients. Creation of cluster gives them many advantages of cheaper rate of transportation. This gives an opportunity to the local labourers to develop their knowledge and working skill. availability of raw materials comes first.  Customized business development services: Clustering helps in the overall development of all the business enterprises in the area. the clients are attracted for their own advantage and profit.  A skilled local labour force: The creation of a cluster attracts local labour. Business units in a particular cluster usually prefer the local labour rather than migrant labour as the local labourers understand the place and environment well. The source of their raw material is near and approachable. As many business units come under one regulation so the clients get a fair deal if they trade with a business unit established in a cluster. As the business units are well regulated and profitable in a cluster.6 Advantages of cluster The various advantages of having a cluster are:  Proximity to Raw Materials: The conditions under which a concentration of economic enterprises is declared a cluster. the business development services are customized in mature. Any business development service implemented in the cluster covers each and every unit. 30 . Clustering helps in developing each and every business established in the cluster.3. Thus.

 Vibrant competition among entrepreneurs: Creation of cluster groups the various business units functioning in a particular area. many unregistered organizations also get the undue advantage of getting into the cluster.7 Disadvantages of cluster The various disadvantages of having a cluster are:  Unregistered members: When a cluster is created it has to take into consideration all the business units producing similar type of product in that area. This makes them avoid investment in acquiring modern and updated technology. It brings them under one rule and regulation. and leaves less scope for monopoly among the business units. This enhances competition among the business units to increase their profits. 31 .  Unsmooth flow of funds: Clustering also facilitates unsmooth flow of funds. Thus. It spurs innovation among the business units and also increases efficiency. 3.  Lack of modernization & up gradation of technology: The manufacturers who are the members of the cluster do not seem interested in acquiring modern technology and high skill. Thus clustering helps in development and overall growth of the business units. Being the member of a cluster the manufacturers get a lot of benefits for running their business profitably.

This is a major drawback for the development of a cluster. Usually there is less scope in a cluster for a smaller unit to grow and there remains a lot of opportunity for the bigger unit to expand their units. 32 .  Lack of trust: There is not much co-ordination between smaller and bigger units in the cluster. Illiterate labourers: The labourers working in the industry are illiterate and are not skilled to work with modern and updated technology. As the industries are also not much modernized so the labourers remain illiterate about the work they do. So there is lack of co-ordination between the smaller and the bigger units.

1 History of Rice 33 .CHAPTER – IV 4.

Rice could be taken to many parts of the world due to its versatility. are the most popular cultivated rice. in the Asian areas rice has spread and is now grown on all continents except Antarctica.C. alcoholic beverages and special foods for religious ceremonies. its cultivation spread throughout Sri Lanka. Rice spread throughout Southern Europe and to some of North Africa. It was then passed onto Greece and areas of the Mediterranean. Being able to grow in this wide spectrum of climates is the reason rice is one of the most widely eaten foods of the world. For millions of people rice is 3/4 their total diet. From Europe rice was brought to the New World.Rice has fed more people over a longer period of time than any other crop. From Portugal it was brought into Brazil and from Spain to Central and South America. People have used rice to make snacks. Beginning in China and the surrounding areas. As far back as 2500 B. Oryza sativa and oryza glaberrima. From an early history. As a nutrition source. and India. Rice. It is able to grow in the desert conditions of Saudi Arabia. in the wetland deltas of Southeast Asia in the flooded rice plains which we are most familiar with. main courses. a member of the family Poaceae. is one of the three leading crops in the world and has a variety of uses. 34 . rice has been documented in the history books as a source of food and for tradition as well. desserts. rice is abundant in carbohydrates while being low in nitrogenous matter and fat.

The Kings too were fond of rice varieties as rice is an important part of the Mahaprasad that is offered to Lord Jagannath every day. where the initial survey in the early decades of the 20th century had recorded 150 varieties. 00. Wild rice. scientists are working on a technique to maximize year-round production of the crop on a given plot of land in order to increase yields for rice eating populous. Even today there are huge stretches of land across Orissa that grow rice for the daily offering to the deity. The similarity between the name Orissa and the Greek name for rice “Oryza” has led many to speculate that the name of the State derives its name from the crop known as Oryza Sativa. Indonesia and Sri Lanka. History of Rice in Orissa: Rice has been the principal food crop of Orissa much before the 14th century AD. The farmers of Orissa both worshipped and loved the crop and never failed to improve on its practice that led to the enormous diversity of rice varieties observed in Orissa since ancient times. When WangTa-Yuan. Thanks to the maritime skills of the Oriya’s. wild varieties are found in the Jeypore tract. Besides these cultivated varieties.000 recorded varieties of rice. and also the Bhitarkanika coastal area where a wild variety grows abundantly in tidal mud flats based upon which many flood and salinity resistant varieties have been developed.In looking towards the future. It is during the course of such business and plundering that popular variety of rice from those lands may have been imported into the state to be later acclimatized and adapted as per local conditions. the locals traveled by indigenously built decorated wooden ships called boita’s to far off Burma. It is thus no wonder that Orissa once had 50. was tamed by the tribal’s inhabiting the Jeypore tract of Orissa which is considered to be one of the secondary centers of origin of rice.000 as record keeping was never the farmers forte. it is known. The actual number could have been more than 1. the Chinese writer of the 14th century visited the State it was being grown in abundance.

Seed selection was based not just on yield but also on such other criteria as food habit. certain varieties are grown purely for festive use and are used as offerings to God called “bhoga”. 4. aroma. acidity and jaundice are conditions some native rice varieties of Orissa can address. sweets. traditions and cultural practices. stale rice in water. and nutritional values. was partaken while mourning for the dead perhaps for its anti depressant qualities. size of the panicles. colour. resistance to salinity. rice milk. annual production was around 519 million tons and by the end of the century it had reached 594 million 36 .

By the end of the year 2008.s. Brazil is the most important non-Asian producer. it has now begun to seriously affect some countries such as China where rice areas have declined as a consequence of water scarcity and competition from more profitable crops (oleaginous). which account for more than one-third of global population (52. Despite this trend.

Technology analysis: Two types of rice are produced by milling of paddy in the rice mills.4.5 .1. They are: Raw Rice  Parboiled Rice Manufacturing of parboiled rice from paddy involves the following major steps: Cleaning of paddy using paddy cleaner and destoner (Paddy Cleaner) Parboiling of cleaned paddy in parboiling plant (Parboiling Plant) Mechanical drying of parboiled paddy using steam (Paddy Drier Plant) Milling of parboiled and dried paddy using Sheller type machine (Sheller Machine) Separation of husk using sieve cleaning of rice (Rubber roll husk in mill plant) Polishing of rice using parling cones (Polished Rice) Separation of rice bran using sieve (Paddy Separation in Mill Plant ) Separation of broken rice using sieve 43 .

It contains vegetable oil as a valuable constituent. For a milling unit.Figure 4. the main product is rice and byproducts are rice bran. Rice bran is a fine powder obtained during polishing of the brown rice when the outer coating on rice is removed as rice bran.5. Husk is the last byproduct and accounts for about 27% of the total quantity. Rice husk is the outer shell of rice and it is a fibrous material containing good amount of silica. rice husk & broken rice are obtained as by products during the process. Broken rice is the second byproduct and accounts for about 1% of the paddy quantity. rice is the main product accounting 68% of the quantity in use and taken for human consumption.2. Rice bran a byproduct of the industry accounts for about 4% of the paddy quantity. Utilization of byproducts of rice milling Industry: The growth of rice milling industry is largely dependent upon useful commercialiasation of its byproducts. Out of the four product and byproduct. 4. 45 . broken rice and rice husk.

5. 4. Rice husk is generally reused in the rice mill as fuel in the boiler. Raw rice bran consists of 12-18% oil. 46 . Rice bran is obtained from the outer layers of the brown rice during milling. plasticizers & tocoferol. broken rice is as good as whole rice. The poor quality of broken rice is due to admixture with grit. Besides at the time of frying there is less degradation of oil. aleuron layer.3. • Rice husk: Rice husk is another byproduct of the rice milling industry. It is more economical as compared to other cooking oil. If nutrition is concerned. Rice bran oil is also used in soap manufacturing. The final selling of rice is done by the government agencies. Broken rice is fit for human consumption of the down trodden at a lower price. and germ and part of endosperm. protective coatings. The role of the rice miller is to process the paddy and return the contracted amount of rice to the agencies. whereas parboiled bran contains 20-28% oil. It is used for extraction of edible oil in solvent extraction plant. It is also used as a cattle feed. Bran oil contains low linolenic acid and high tocoferol. hence it has distinct advantage over other vegetable oils. the rice millers get profit out of the byproducts and from excess milling of rice. stones and clay particles. It has low economic value as compared to whole rice.• Rice bran: Rice bran has a variety of uses. Value chain analysis: As there is custom milling prevailing in this cluster. • Broken rice: Broken rice is another byproduct of rice milling industry. Various government agencies provide paddy to the rice millers at a certain rate. It also contains high fat & protein. minerals & many other useful chemicals. vitamins. Rice bran consists of pericarp. Rice bran is a potential source of vegetable oil.

These mills are of various capacities ranging from 2 tons/hr to 10 tons/hr. Thus the Rice Mills are nowadays prospering through Government Policy. The introduction of Custom Milling have helped Rice Milling Industry in both this aspect as the paddy is provided by Government which is milled into Rice by the Rice Millers and is delivered back to the Government for a consideration of fix milling charges. the rice mills are mainly spread around Bargarh. The Government has introduced "Custom Milling” which means milling of paddy. At present the consortium has 28 members having seed money with an amount of Rs. Age of the cluster The Bargarh and adjoining areas has a paddy growing area traditionally. Thus the milling activity started in the area almost 50 years ago.

Workshops should be organized for up gradation and development of technology not only for mill owners but also for the labourers. Problems Faced & Intervention Proposed: The major problems faced by the cluster are: • Labour problem: The labourers working in the rice mills are from Bargarh and from nearby areas. So the labour requirement is fulfilled by the local labourers. which goes waste due to insufficiency of space in the RMC yard. 2/kg rice by the government of Orissa is also responsible for creating labour problem in the cluster.local labourers. By working 15 days month. Suggestion: Various institutes should be established for the development of skilled labourer. The major problem is that the labourers available are unskilled and are not capable of handling new and updated machinery. Migrant labourers are not employed as the work is not highly technical and expertise in work is not required. the labourers can live a satisfactory life for a month as the basic cereals are available to them at a cheap rate by the government. More RMC godown is needed to keep the surplus amount of paddy. Many opportunities are available for up gradation of technology but the non-availability of skilled labourers is restricting the rice mill owners from updating their technology. The rice mill owners don’t require migrant and expert labourer. Some rice mill owners provide them with housing facility as well. The farmers are unable to sell their surplus rice to the rice miller and face heavy loss. There are no migrant labourers. 4. The availability of Rs. • Shortage of government infrastructure: The RMC yards do not have space and infrastructure to keep the paddy secured for long time. 58 .8. This does not provide the labourers a chance to improve their skills and competitiveness.

There is shortage of FCI godowns. Storage problem of excess rice will be solved. ‘Rural godown scheme’ of government of India should be activated in this area. This will help them not to close down there unit for the time there storing house is not empty. • High investment Low income: To provide with fine quality rice the rice mill owners are using various modern technology. Provision should be made by the government such that the FCI godowns provide space to the rice mill owners to store the excess processed rice before it is returned to the government. The government should provide them with funds or should negotiate with nationalized banks to provide them easy loans with cheaper rates. The rice mill owners are making high investment in their mills to give the 59 . The government should take steps to provide a common storage facility to the rice mill owners in the cluster. The rice mill owners do not have sufficient godown space to store the rice & have to close down the factory till the government agencies have collected the processed rice and space has been made in the godowns for storage of new processed rice. the whole lot of rice is not transferred to the FCI godown because of shortage of space. After the paddy is processed into rice. All the rice mill owners will store there processed rice after one lot of rice processing is over. Suggestions: The rice mill owners should individually be provided with finance to build their own storage facility.

The government agencies supply paddy to the rice mills according to the capacity of the rice mills. The rice mill owners have to process the paddy into fine quality rice and return to the government agencies. Suggestions: To provide fine quality rice the rice mill owners invest heavily to update their technology and machinery. the rice mill owners get low profit as compared to the investment made.finest quality rice. Due to custom milling the rice mill owners are not able to get the satisfactory profit as they have to sell the rice to the govt. For every 100 kg of paddy the rice mill owners have to provide the agencies 68 kg of rice. Due to custom milling of rice by the government. The farmers produce the raw materials and supply them to the government agencies. But after processing only 63 kg or 64 kg of rice comes out. Various institutes can be established to educate the farmers about the development of paddy as the farmers are the first stakeholders of the Bargarh rice mill cluster. • Shortage of quality raw material: Raw material i. To compensate this loss NABARD should provide the mill owners with various lending facility through the commercial bank such that the investment can be made at a cheaper rate. As the quality of paddy provided by the farmers is not good and poor ultimately the rice mill owners have to pay the price. at the rate fixed by the government. Suggestions: The farmers should be provided proper knowledge about various fertilizers and new technology available in the market so as to make them use in producing good and high quality paddy. paddy is supplied to various government agencies by the farmers.e. With high quality paddy 68 kg of rice per 100kg of paddy can be processed. But according to the contract the rice mill owners have to return 68 kg of rice which leads to around 3 to 4 kg of loss of rice per quintal. • Lack of active associations: 60 .

Some of the mill owners who have the modern facilities have reported better price appreciation even with the existing paddy variety. • Low technology level: Though some of the mills of the area have modern facilities such as SORTEX and SILKY.  Formation of consortia and other types of groups in the cluster to improve its social capital  Interaction of the association with other rice miller associations for information exchange etc.The existing association at Bargarh had been dormant for quite some time and only due to the pilot level activities that were initiated during the study phase. the lack of facilities of re-use of the boiler heat and some technical gaps in the milling technology itself have led to low output. These vehicles of growth need to be strengthened for the long term growth of the cluster.  Entrepreneurship and motivation programmes for the rice millers.  The meetings of the SPV formation should be properly co-ordinate. high percentage of broken rice and other related issues. They have got into the mode of commonly planning some activities and thus they need to be further strengthened to take up the developmental activities in the cluster. Suggestions: 61 . The low technology levels in boilers. some energisation of the association has taken place. Suggestions:  Place one secretarial staff (NDA) with the association to help in daily activities. the poor quality paddy and custom milling by the government has deterred most of the mill owners to go for technology up gradation in their mills.

F. Some Rice Millers also get financing from O.C. The existing association at Bargarh had been dormant for quite some time. The major findings of my study are:  The number of Rice Mills in Bargarh District has doubled from 27 rice mills in 2001-02 to 53 in 2003-04. 82 .  There is lack of active associations.S. 50 lakhs per annum. which again rose to 83 by the end of the year 2009.6. 50 lakhs to Rs.  46% of Rice Mills in the cluster have an annual turnover of up to Rs.1. Modern machineries like SILKY and SORTEX machines are absent.  State Bank of India is the most preferred bank for credit loan by the Rice Millers.  The working capital requirement of the Rice Mills range between Rs.  The paddy provided for custom milling is of low quality.  Labour requirement in the cluster is a major problem for the Rice Millers. 1 crore. Findings The study on Cluster Development and Scope for Credit Growth in Rice Mills in Bargarh – Attabira belt included various data analysis and survey.  The technology used is not updated and modernized. 50 lakhs per annum.  Bank loan is a major source of finance in the Rice Mill cluster of Bargarh District.  The Rice Mills get a net profit of up to Rs.  There is shortage of government storage facilities for storage of paddy and custom milled rice.

The Borrower rating is done on the basis of the Aggregative Risk Score.  The Rice Mill owners should individually be provided with financing opportunity to build their own storage facilities.  There should be interactive seminars/ workshops with institutions such as CRRI. to cull out best practices of Rice Milling.  The Rice Mills in the cluster come between SB-1 to SB-5 category in the Borrower Rating done by the State Bank of India. The Score is calculated by summing up Financial Risk. State Bank of India has 83 .  There should be exposure visit to other rice milling clusters. there is a huge scope for State Bank of India to increase its credit growth.  With a major number of Rice Mills coming between SB-1 to SB-5 category. APEDA etc. such that they do not face problem to store the custom milled rice. Suggestions:  Various institutes should be established for the development of skilled labourers.  Workshops should be organized to upgrade the labourers.2.  Government should take steps to provide a Common Storage Facility to the Rice Mill owners of the cluster.  There should be formation of consortia and other types of groups in the cluster to improve its social capital. Management Risk and Business and Industrial Risk.  NABARD and various other government financial institutions should provide the Rice Mill owners with easy loan facility such that they can invest heavily and get a better income.  Various institutes should be established to educate the farmers about the development of paddy. The Rice Mill owners are making high investment but are getting a low income due to custom milling procedure. 6.

50 lakhs to Rs. 100 crore.an opportunity to increase its customer base by decreasing its interest rate and providing easy loan proceedings. 1 crore turnover of each Rice Mill. The various areas where financing is required are:  Up gradation of technology  Maintenance of machinery  Working capital requirement  Initial investment for commencement of business  Renovation of Rice Mills and construction of storage facilities. With more Rice Mills coming up each year and with the availability of opportunities for technological development and more social associations coming up for the upliftment of the Rice Mills. there lie various opportunities for the financial institutions to provide finance in various areas of the Rice Milling business. 84 . The various financial institutions established in the Rice Mill cluster of Bargrah have an open opportunity to increase their Credit Appraisal position and Savings Deposit. With the value of cluster being approximately Rs. Conclusion: There has been existence of Rice Mill in the Bargarh District since 50 years. With around 83 Rice Mill in the cluster and around Rs. 100 crore. The number of Rice Mills in Bargarh has been three fold in a decade. The Rice Mill cluster of Bargarh is developing fast and various opportunities are opening up for growth of Rice Mills both in social and financial field. the value of the cluster stands around Rs.3. there lies an opportunity for the for the overall development of the cluster. 6.
