Striped Hyenas Bred at Vizag Zoo 03-Jan-2017
The New Year has brought in some good news for the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park (IGZP) here which announced the successful captive breeding of striped hyenas — a first in its history. This comes after two consecutive failures, when the two previous litters did not survive. Of the three cubs in the new litter, the zoo authorities could save one male, which is currently being looked after at the zoo hospital after its mother turned hostile. The two-month-old cub has been named Ayush. The birth of the cub holds particular significance, because striped hyena is listed as a ‘Near Threatened’ species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Hopes Of Pharma Sector Shattered 30-Dec-2016
Industry in deep despair as many proposals remained on the paper. When 2016 began the pharma industry in the State hoped to get an impetus in exports following promises to set up campus of Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India (Pharmexcil), National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER) and develop second pharma city. Almost a year later the industry is in deep despair as the proposals have remained on the paper. Not a single major investment has come to the region during the year. Moreover its demand for removal of Minimum Alternate Tax for units which came up in Special Economic Zone or reducing it from 20 to 7 per cent and doling out of sops for the new-born Andhra Pradesh has fallen on deaf ears. Pharma units are spread over Visakhapatnam, Srikakulam and Vizianagaram in North Andhra making the region the main hub of State’s pharma industry. Jawaharlal Nehru Pharma City (JNPC), being operated in the PPP mode at Parawada has itself has an estimated turnover of Rs. 15,000 crore.

This year’s highlight will be to hold all the events like folk dances, flower show, creation of replicas of famous temples in the region on the 2.5 km stretch from RK Beach to VUDA Park.
