Rubber Board Call Centre will answer queries on tapper bank
Kottayam 20 September 2016
Rubber growers, office bearers of Rubber Producers’ Societies (RPSs) and rubber tappers can contact Rubber Board Call Centre for having the details regarding Tapper Bank scheme being implemented by the Rubber Board. Mr. D. Sreekumar, Development Officer, Rubber Board will answer to the queries on the subject on 22 September 2016 from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm. The Call Centre Number is 0481 – 2576622.
Rubber Board is promoting weekly tapping, a new tapping system that will help in prolonging the economical life of rubber trees and helps in reducing tapping cost. To a certain extent, this will also find a solution for the shortage of rubber tappers. If weekly tapping is adopted, a tapper has to work simultaneously in different holdings. Tapper Banks formed under RPSs can find a solution for this by sharing tappers among different holdings. Tapper Banks can also ensure better service conditions, wages and terminal benefits for the tappers.
The Call Centre service is available from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm on all working days. Information about the services of the Board and also technical advice regarding cultivation, production, processing etc. of rubber can be regularly sought from this Centre which is functioning at Rubber Board Head Office, Kottayam.
