Project race to beat poll code

Source : TT

Feb. 22: Writers’ Buildings and Rail Bhavan are in a race to dole out largesse to Bengal before the model code of conduct kicks in with the announcement of election dates, expected in the first week of March.

Chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee asked his colleagues at the cabinet meeting today to implement all pending projects by March 3, a senior minister revealed.

In Delhi, Mamata Banerjee gave Parliament the miss on a day the joint parliamentary probe was announced. She locked herself in her flat and later in her office to focus on the rail budget she will present on Friday, her last before the battle for change at Writers’.

The railway minister spent the day preparing for her evening meeting with finance minister Pranab Mukherjee to get budgetary support for the dozen big-ticket projects she is likely to propose for Bengal, sources said.

Mamata is not the only Bengal MP seeking the finance minister’s support for projects. In Parliament yesterday, a senior CPM MP was spotted making urgent calls to Asim Dasgupta, the Bengal finance minister, to clear a project in his constituency.

“I called to inquire about the project to extend drinking water supply to tribals in my area…. It is very important.… They are poor tribals…. Please see that it is cleared before the poll notification,” the MP was heard telling Dasgupta.

Before dialling the finance minister, the MP called two officials to track the position of the project. There is a mad race in Writers’ to get projects cleared before elections are announced, the MP said.

Today’s cabinet meeting in Calcutta approved the creation of 3,221 posts across departments, including health, higher education, municipal affairs, police and backward classes welfare.

“We shall absorb doctors, nurses in government-run hospitals, teaching and non-teaching staff in medical colleges and the higher education department and sub-inspectors and constables in police,” an official said.

The cabinet, which will meet next on March 23, has also approved jobs for Razia Khatun, the widow of Giasuddin Sarkar of Hooghly killed by dacoits in 2000, and Gayatri Das, the mother of Barasat boy Rajib who was murdered on February 15 by men harassing his sister Rinku.

Over 7,800 casual labourers working for 10 years in municipal bodies across the state were regularised. “We have been considering their regularisation for some time,” municipal affairs minister Ashok Bhattacharya said.

Opposition leader Partha Chatterjee questioned the decision of the “outgoing government, reeling under a debt of Rs 2 lakh crore”, to create 3,221 new posts and warned that all schemes being implemented in the run-up to the polls would be reviewed by the new government.

On the other side, the CPM MP was calling up officials in Rail Bhavan to get a list of pending railway projects in 2009-10. “I had sought the list some time back but they seem to be reluctant. Mamata is going on announcing projects and I want to show how many of her projects announced earlier are yet to take off,” the MP said.

Minimum wages

Bengal labour minister Anadi Sahu today announced that minimum wages for unorganised and agriculture sector workers would be raised from next month following a decision by the Minimum Wages Advisory Board, adds PTI.

DVC seeks urgent coal allocation for Mejia-II

Damodar Valley Corporation has sought the Ministry of Power's urgent intervention in the allocation of a tapering coal linkage for its upcoming 1,000- mw Mejia thermal power plant (phase-II) in Bankura district of West Bengal.

In a letter to the ministry, the project developer informed that Unit-1 of Mejia Phase-II had been commissioned and was expected to achieve commercial operation shortly. Unit 2 had also been synchronised and was scheduled to be commissioned next month. The utility requested the ministry to take up the coal linkage issue with the Ministry of Coal at the earliest to avoid any shortfall in coal availability to the units.

Further, DVC informed the ministry that the power project had been allocated two captive coal blocks, Barjora (N) and Khagra Joydev, by Eastern Coalfields Ltd, each with expected production capacity of 3 million tpa of coal supply. Environment clearance had been obtained for both these coal blocks. While there is no forest land in case of Khagra Joydev coal block, forest clearance for Barjora (North) coal block is under process at the state level. The mining lease for Khagra Joydev and for the nonforest land of Barjora (North) block has been granted by the West Bengal government.

As per the current status of the captive coal blocks, production is expected to start from 2011-12 though peak production may be reached two years later. Thus, DVC needs tapering coal linkage for Mejia Phase-II to the extent of shortfall in coal availability from the captive coal blocks.

Incidentally, tapering coal linkage for one unit of 500 mw was approved by the standing linkage committee of the coal ministry in January 2010. However, the ministry asked for the power ministry's recommendation for similar linkage for the second unit. In view of this, DVC has asked the power ministry to endorse tapering coal linkage for supply for 5 million tpa for phase-II of the project. The utility cautioned that if the linkages were not provided it would lose energy generation of about 22 million units per day from April onwards.

BHEL bags Rs 3,220 cr order for thermal power project in WB

NEW DELHI: Power equipment maker Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) today said it has won an order worth Rs 3,220 crore related to a thermal power project in West Bengal.

The order is for supply and installation of the main plant package for the Sagardighi Thermal Power Project Stage-II in West Bengal. The project has two units of 500 MW each.

In a statement today, BHEL said the order is worth Rs 3,220 crore and has been placed by the West Bengal Power Development Corporation Ltd ( WBPDCL )).

For this contract, BHEL's work would include design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of steam turbines, generators and boilers.

The company would also be responsible for Controls & Instrumentation (C&I), Switchyard and civil works for the main plant package.

"Significantly, even though Stage-I of the power project is equipped with Chinese equipment, yet the customer has reposed confidence in BHEL's capabilities by opting to source equipment from BHEL for the extension project," the firm said.

The order was won under the International Competitive Bidding process.

Shares of the company jumped nearly three per cent to Rs 2,058.50 on the Bombay Stock Exchange .

2012 start to Haripur land acquisition

KOLKATA: The groundwork for the controversial nuclear power plant at Haripur will be complete in a year, and land acquisition for the project could begin by late 2012, said S K Jain, chairman of the Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCI). In Kolkata to attend the "Frontiers of Science" convention, Jain said the plant was on course despite resistance that had stalled work in 2006.

Jain added that he was confident of being able to convince the locals that it would not be harmful to the environment or affect fishing activities in the coastal areas of East Midnapore. The project would, in fact, be a major boost to the local economy and help maintain an ecological balance that has been disturbed in the area, he claimed.

About 170km from Kolkata, the violence at Haripur, in fact, had preceded the violent agitation at Nandigram. Soon after a site inspection in November 2006, hundreds of villagers had blocked the entrance to Haripur and prevented government vehicles from driving into the area.

Around 650-700 hectares of land would be needed for the plant that will have six nuclear reactors. Each would have a capacity of 1000MW. "We need 18 months of activities before the first reactor comes up. Since we plan to begin work during the 12th plan period in 2013-14, we have not yet come to the land acquisition stage yet. But we must start acquiring by late 2012 if we have to stick to the schedule. We are confident of being able to go ahead," Jain added.

Members of the Haripur Paramanu Bidyut Prakalpa Pratirodh Andolan reacted angrily to the announcement. Convener Debashish Shyamal said they were not open to any dialogue or negotiation on the plant. "Unless the project is scrapped, we shall not allow any development project in the area. The plant would spell doom for fishing in the area and make 75% of the local population jobless," said Shyamal. He warned that a violent agitation would be launched if NPCI attempted to carry on groundwork in the area. "In 2006, we had stopped Jain when he tried to enter Haripur. This time, we will teach him a severe lesson if he tries to sneak in," Shyamal said.

NPCI, on the other hand, claimed to have made appreciable progress. Oceanography tests and collection of meteorological data for the plant are under way. "My people are working there. Except for geo-technical tests, all the other necessary groundwork have begun. There is a sentiment, a mob frenzy at work. But you must know how to address concerns and be reasonable. We have a track record of installing and operating reactors without affecting the flora and fauna and we are going to maintain that. There are certain apprehensions about fishing and we have already been telling the locals that though the sea temperature might rise marginally, it would aid fish production rather than wipe them out," explained Jain. Kodankulam in Tamil Nadu will soon have four nuclear reactors at a power plant which is being set up there, he said. "Construction on the first two has already started and though there have been demands for a better compensation package which is being looked into, locals have been extremely cooperative," added the NPCI chairman.

Asked if he expected resistance to land acquisition at Haripur again, Jain said a different approach would be taken this time. "We are ready to initiate a one-on-one dialogue with all the stakeholders once the elections are over. We shall try to dispel fears and the misconceptions," Jain said.

Veteran scientist and former director of Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics Bikash Sinha said the project could change the region for the better. "It has the potential to generate jobs for hundreds of talented people. So far as the environmental fears are concerned, I think they are highly exaggerated. Reactors have not interfered with the natural ecology anywhere in the country," Sinha said.

The project would have required far less land but for the "exclusion radius" which is mandatory around a nuclear plant in India. "The plant could have been built on a two-square-kilometre plot. But we need to keep a buffer zone for which we would need a lot more land," Jain said.

Whoever developed the website must be lazy or doesn't know the GOI rules regarding maps published from within India.

Let the anti Left newspapers like the Telegraph, Statesman or Bartamaan know. They will get some "issue" to fill up their pages.

Heritage hotel eye on French connection - Team including Neemrana co-chairman scouts for Chandernagore properties to restore

http://www.telegraphindia.com/111030...y_13676492.jsp

SUDESHNA BANERJEE

Tourists headed for Bengal may soon be able to sample the signature Neemrana brand of heritage and hospitality in Bengal’s French connection: Chandernagore.

Francis Wacziarg, the co-chairman of the Neemrana chain of heritage hospitality addresses, was part of a French team led by consul-general Jean Louis Rysto that visited Chandernagore on Sunday to scout for properties that could be restored.

The Neemrana Group specialises in acquiring old properties of architectural value across the country and turning them into heritage hotels.

“We are present across India but we have nothing in the east. As the French had a key presence in Chandernagore, this can be a good starting point,” said Wacziarg, who landed in India as a student in 1970, “fell in love with the land in 10 minutes” and became an Indian citizen.

Some of the landmark Neemrana properties that Wacziarg has helped restore are the 15th century Neemrana Fort-Palace in Rajasthan and the Pataudi Palace in Haryana.

Wacziarg, a founder-member of Intach, has also joined hands with conservationists and restorers Vieilles Maisons Francaises (VMF). “Unesco has asked us to build a network of people keen on restoration across the world,” said VMF president Philippe Toussaint.

They are in the process of registering a society called French Heritage in India, which aims to list French heritage properties in India and help in their renovation, if needed.

As the team scanned Chandernagore for properties on Sunday, the one that caught Wacziarg’s eye was a mansion called Gopalbabur Bari in Charmandirtala. “Spread over 96 cottahs, the house was constructed in the late 18th century for the ruler of Ramnagar and derives its name from an employee into whose hands it passed,” said Ujjwal Mondal, one of the oldest residents of the town.

Mondal and his Belgian wife Neline are helping Wacziarg identify heritage properties.

Also in the recce team was Indo-French heritage expert Jean Marie Lafont, who has been touring Murshidabad, Serampore, Bandel, Chinsurah and Chandernagore to “resurrect” the connection between Europe and India.

“If tourism has to spread, it has to shift to the countryside,” he said.

For Wacziarg, the goal is to have a base and “grow round that place like we did in Gujarat”.

But can decadent Bengal be preserved like other places?

“Traditionally India is a nation of builders, not preservers. When we started work on the Shekhawati havelis in Rajasthan that have walls adorned with frescoes, we had appealed to the owners of these houses who live mostly in Calcutta. Despite a letter from G.D. Birla, all we managed to raise from the community was Rs 150.”

But he is happy that Indians are now eager to preserve history.

Even I have send email to concerned forumers and to all our moderators here, including you Suncity that there are people in indian skyscrapercity who are using distorted maps of India continuously for years now.

We all should help this person find the right set of maps for use otherwise it looks like as if we have just donated J&K to Pakistan. See ALL the posts in the thread below.

A study was undertaken for the assessment of tidal energy potential in the country. According to the study, there is an estimated potential of tidal energy of the order of 8000 MW in the country. This includes about 7000 MW in the Gulf of Cambay and 1200 MW in the Gulf of Kutch in the State of Gujarat and about 100 MW in the Gangetic Delta in the Sunderbans region in the State of West Bengal.

The Ministry sanctioned a demonstration project for setting up 3.75 MW capacity tidal energy power plant at the Durgaduani Creek in Sunderbans region to West Bengal Renewable Energy Development Agency (WBREDA), Kolkatta. The project is being executed by NHPC Ltd.

The State Government of Gujarat formed a Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) with public private partnership and sponsored a study for large scale exploitation of tidal energy across the coastline of Gujarat. One MoU for commissioning of 50 MW Tidal Power Project has been signed by M/s. Atlantis Resource Corporation (U.K.) and Gujarat Power Corporation Ltd., Govt. of Gujarat.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy considers providing financial incentives upto 50% of the cost to the State Government implementing Agencies for the development of tidal energy projects on cost sharing basis as technology demonstration projects in accordance with its R&D policy guidelines.

Since this is an international forum, Marathaman was advised by some moderators (after objections were raised by certain quarters) to use a map that met international realities rather than claims made by various nations.

Foundation stone laid for dyke at Diamond Harbour

Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee has laid the foundation stone for a dyke on Muri Ganga river at Diamond Harbour in West Bengal. The dyke is required for reclamation of land to increase the draft at the proposed port at Sagar Island to 11-13 metres. The land reclamation project is estimated to cost 100 crore and will be completed in eight months.

Kolkata Port Trust and Indian Railways are likely to collaborate in a 2,000-crore, 4.5-km long rail-road connectivity project to the new port at Sagar Island, at the confluence of Muri Ganga river with the Bay of Bengal.

Rites Ltd is conducting the feasibility of the project and the report is expected to be ready in three months.

KoPT has already announced a plan to build a new port at Sagar Island at an estimated cost of 3,000 crore. Around 2,000 acres of land required for the project will be reclaimed from the sea. The port will have an initial capacity to handle 60 million tonnes of bulk as well as containerised cargo.

Coal India lifts objection on steel projects in West Bengal

The fate of several steel projects planned by Bhushan Steel, Videocon and Abhijeet group in a coal bearing region of West Bengal whose progress has been stuck because of Coal India’s opposition could finally see the light of the day.

Coal India, which had earlier objected to Bengal Aerotropolis Projects Ltd’s airport city project on the ground that it has been planned over coal deposits, has come to an understanding with the state government and also the project developers, according to which all the three parties would file affidavits in the court, an official of West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC) told DNA.

The project developer would file an affidavit saying that if it is found anytime in future that coal can be mined from these project areas in a commercially viable manner, then Coal India should be allowed to do mining.

Coal India, on its part, would file an affidavit saying it would make best efforts to bring in latest under-ground mining technologies that would leave the surface unaffected to the extent possible.

Following the filing of the affidavits by March-end, work on the stalled Rs10,000 crore project spread over 2,000 acres in Durgapur is likely to resume.

And with this, WBIDC, responsible for land acquisition for industrial projects in the state, would start perusing the steel projects of Bhushan, Videocon and Abhijeet group.

“After the affidavits are filed, it would be possible for us to proceed with the steel projects,” the official said.

Of these three steel projects, Bhushan Steel, which signed an MoU in 2007, has been most keen to pursue with the state government in acquiring the land and have already paid the entire advance money, the official said.

Following opposition from Coal India, Bhushan Steel had threatened to dump the two million tonnes integrated steel project in the state and look elsewhere for greenfield expansion.

Videocon’s plan is to set up a three million tonne steel unit while Abhijeet group’s proposal is for two million tonnes.

Coal India had earlier reasoned that the Durgapur-Asansol-Ranigunj area has reserves of around 4 billion tonnes of coal and that a major part of this deposit could never be mined if industrial projects are allowed to set up.

Promoters of the projects, and also the West Bengal government, staring at the possibility of losing investment of Rs50,000 crore, then asked Coal India to come up with definitive mining plan for these regions.

“Coal India need to state by when they plan to start extracting the coal buried beneath the land being given to projects like Bhushan Steel. Factors like the quality of coal and whether mining would be commercially viable also need to be addressed,” the WBIDC official said.
