    Boosting Wool Industry in Rajasthan

    Rajasthan is the largest producer of Wool in India but still most of the high end wool processing (pre loom & post loom) factories are located in Punjab, Haryana & Maharashtra. In spite of being biggest wool producer, we are not fully exploiting the manufacturing & processing potential which otherwise could yield greater profits to our State and in turn generate lot of employment.Currently only Bikaner district has the biggest wool market but other districts are lacking. We need to encourage companies who can incorporate the best of technology solutions for boosting the sector in Rajasthan. As wool produced in Rajasthan is best used for Carpets and Rugs, we can incidentally apply for GI tag for such items coming out of our State.

    Conversion of Barren Land to Productive Land

    Rajasthan India's largest state by area (342,239 square kilometres (132,139 sq mi) or 10.4% of India's total area), 25% of its geographical area being wasteland. Being largest state in India; 1000/100000 of hectares land in Rajasthan are barren due to lack of water or may be other factors. These barren land are not in use. There is an emerging concern on effective use of these lands in Rajasthan. If we succeed in developing crop varieties, cultivation/plantation/ vegetation/ industrialization etc. then large area can be made useable. Can help in increasing greenery / industrialization / employment. Innovative solutions are invited from interested parties, may be Consultant / Industrialist / Villagers on as it is basis (considering no facility like road, electricity and water is available in that area), e.g. Solar Farms, Defence Training facilities or Astronomy Observatories can be installed.

    Low Shelf Life of Agricultural Produce

    Sufficient cold chains are not present due to which lot of agricultural produce is perished in transit incurring lot of loss to farmers. Mostly the middle men are involved which further aggravates the situation.Low shelf life & perishable nature of produce coupled with large distances to market brings lot of loss to farmers. Solutions are invited in form of Setup technology enabled (RFID powered) cold chains so that we can track the produce life and thereby significantly improve go to market value.Go downs that can be located at key areas to help ease the logistic loads. A storage location guide App or SMS utility can be used to assist the farmers

    • Reducing water intensive crop cultivation

    Reducing water intensive crop cultivation

    As Rajasthan is primarily an arid State with low rainfall, instead of water intensive crops we should rather push for less water intensive crops in order to have optimal water utilization.Lot of water can be saved if we can balance both types of crops.Olives, Dates are less water intensive but high income crops. So we can boost the cultivation of these crops in our dry areas by brining innovative / technological solutions. Companies can partner with countries that are having best practices as they have a similar climate like Rajasthan and are best innovators in agriculture with new age drip/harvesting technologies.

    Detection of Quarry and Mine blasts using Remote Monitoring System

    Rajasthan is known for its marble, sandstone and slate stone. It also has rich deposits of black and green marble, which fetches a higher prize than the white marble. The state has been earning a revenue of Rs 1500 crore annually by way of lease money and sales tax from the mines. About 50 lakh people earn their livelihood from the mining industry as it is one of the most labour intensive industries in the state. Government of India has also come up with MSS (Mining Surveillance System) in 2016 which is a satellite-based monitoring system that sends trigger on any unusual mining activity that takes place within 500 meters of existing mining boundary lease. It is based on satellite imagery and can be used by State government for minor minerals in coordination with State Remote-sensing application center located at Jodhpur. The State has also requisitioned the services of Quick Bird, an American satellite, to survey 50,000 sq km in 15 districts of the State for the status of areas under mining. To evolve a robust and efficient method to detect such illegal mining activity on a real time basis so that necessary response can be initiated at a shortest possible time.

    Safe Drinking Water for Residents of Rajasthan

    Due to excessive exploitation of groundwater, harmful elements get mixed with water effecting its quality. Apart from fluoride, water quality in rural habitations is also infested with other anthropogenic chemicals. Impacted districts include: Bharatpur, Nagaur, Barmer, Jalore, Bhilwara, Jhunjhunun, Karauli, Sawaimadhopur, Pali, Jodhpur, Sirohi, Jaisalmer, Chittorgarh, Rajsamand, Kota, Bundi, Baran, Churu, Jaipur, Alwar, Sikar and Bikaner. This results in spread of water-borne diseases. As per WHO standards for clean drinking water, ideal standard is 1 ppm fluoride in water with 500-7000 TDS (total dissolved solid). According to a report; in Rajasthan, 25504 rural habitations or 1.09 crore people are getting water with chemical or bacterial contamination. 88 per cent of Rajasthan’s water is saline, 55 per cent has very high fluoride. Approx. 1600 RO plants have been established by Government in Rural areas.1175 SOLAR defloridation units are in pipeline with estimated budget of 137 crores. A solution is solicited which shall ensure avoiding the fluorosis disease, bulk filter/eliminate the chemical or bacterial contamination at very low cost like 10 paise per litre.

    Identifying Water Canal Leakage/ Irrigation

    In Rajasthan, Canals form an important support for irrigation. However, this system has its own disadvantages. Canals are generally not deep and may dry up. The water seeps into the ground and leads to the problem of water logging, and the excessive flow of water brings the salt to the surface making the soil infertile. Water logging and increased salinity are some of the major problems of Irrigation. Incidents of water leakage, through manual intervention, are also frequently reported across the entire area surrounding the Canal. Technology and Sensors (IoT based) to be leveraged to identify water levels across various water canals real time which will help in leakage control. Also sufficient drainage and soil treatment can be done to improve the land potential nearby. This solution if successful can be extended to prevent leakages from Gas, Petrol pipelines.
