Arasu Rubber Corporation Limited(ARC), Nagercoil
 
Arasu Rubber Corporation Limited (ARC) has rubber plantations over an area of 4187.68 hectares of forestlands taken on lease from the Forest Department in Kanyakumari district, where the soil, climate and topography are conducive for the growth of rubber trees. The Corporation was registered on 01.08.1984 under the Companies Act, 1956. The authorised capital of the Corporation is Rs.10.00 crores and the paid-up share capital is Rs.8.45 crores. The Government of Tamil Nadu holds the entire share capital of the Corporation. There are 1,504 permanent workers and among them 311 are Sri Lankan repatriates. In addition there are 365 contract workers also employed by the Corporation. It has been decided to extend free medical treatment facilities for all contract workers in the garden hospitals and dispensaries of the Corporation, from 2007-2008 onwards.
More than 70% of rubber trees in the plantations of the Arasu Rubber Corporation were planted during 1960s and 1970s. The trees, which have attained an age of 30 years or more, yield less and therefore to make the Corporation more viable and to provide continuous employment opportunities to the workers, it has been decided to undertake replanting works with high yielding clones as advised by the Rubber Board, after felling of the less productive matured rubber trees.
