What is the calculation used for finding the Balance Stock of Natural Rubber by Rubber Board?


It should be opening stock + production + import (of a particular period) - (consumption + export). Logically it should be the Balance Stock of Natural Rubber. If it is not equal to balance stock then what is the terminology used by the Rubber Board’s statistics Department for the obtained number?


Whether rubber board is exempted from principles of science and arithmetic?


The following tables will be updated periodically on the availability of published latest statistics by the Rubber Board through monthly rubber statistical news and Annual Rubber Statistics. Only monthly rubber statistical news available online, to fetch the updated data from Annual Rubber Statistics on cash payment through the purchase. How ever Vol 33 of 2013 is still available online which is removed from web site of Rubber Board.


A fight started before 20 years had been solved by correcting error free statistics for the year 2018-19. I submitted a complaint to NFRPS about anomaly in rubber statistics to the newly appointed executive committee. They appointed a sub committee to verify the facts and take action to send a letter to Rubber Board. An invitation received to president to participate in 8th SCP meeting. He strongly opposed against the anomaly in statistics and compelled the SCP to correct the figures to tally. On earlier SCP meeting non of the members including farmer representative became silent on this matter. With out the support of NFRPS I was a complete Zero.

Heartiest thanks to Dr. K.N Raghavan IRS Executive Director Rubber Board, Capt George Joseph President NFRPS, Statistics and planning dept including SCP team for the valuable step to correct the rubber statistics from 2018-19 onward.
