Any way the mods can move the thread to another fresh thread. I say this because A&N islands are neither close to South nor East India.

HDFC Bank Opens Branch in Port Blair

Quote:
The branch was inaugurated by Chief Staff Officer of the Andaman & Nicobar Command, Commodore Sandeep Pradhan, the Head of Logistics, Administration & Personnel.

HDFC Bank, the second largest private bank in the country, has now gone beyond the shores of mainland India and made its debut in Andaman Nicobar archipelago with its first branch in Port Blair on September 2. The branch will not only cater to the 4-lakh strong local population and the residents of the 37 inhabited islands, it is also set to benefit tourists thronging the tropical islands from other parts of the country as well as abroad with world-class services and products.

The branch was inaugurated by Chief Staff Officer of the Andaman & Nicobar Command, Commodore Sandeep Pradhan, the Head of Logistics, Administration & Personnel.

Port Blair, the capital of the archipelago in the Bay of Bengal, is the gateway to some of the most beautiful virgin beaches and underwater marine life in the world, thus attracting a steady tourist flow round the year.

The islands are also crucial to the defence forces and it is from here that the Indian Navy keeps an eye on the choppy waters of the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean. HDFC Bank will strive to provide best in class services to these sectors and give a boost to the local economy. The debut of the branch saw an overwhelming response from the local population.

Speaking from Mumbai, Navin Puri, Country Head, Branch Banking, HDFC Bank, said: “As a leading bank of the country, we will continue to conquer new frontiers and take banking to every nook and corner of the country. Opening a branch in Port Blair is the first step towards what we believe will be a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”

The residents of Andaman & Nicobar will be the first one to receive the first tranche of smart cards called Resident Identity Cards (RIC). The smart card will have a 64 KB microprocessor chip.

All the selected 3,331 coastal villages has been covered in the first phase of the project of these States/UTs. In Andaman & Nicobar Islands, besides the villages, all the towns will also be covered in the first phase itself. The approved cost of the scheme is Rs 216.31 crore.

The cards will be distributed by the union Home Minister P Chidambaram in porthrapur village, Port Blair tomorrow on his official visit to the union territory.

About 2.56 lakh cards will distributed to all persons who have completed 18 years of age in Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

It had been decided to create a National Population Register (NPR) in the coastal areas of 9 maritime states-- Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal, and 4 UTs-- Andaman & Nicobar, Puducherry, Lakshadweep and Daman & Diu as one of the measures for strengthening the security of the coastline of the country.

The scheme encompasses collection of specific items of information of each individual in the coastal areas and issue Resident Identity (smart) cards (RIC) to all usual residents, who are of age 18 years and above.

The card incorporates several physical security features like Guilloché patterns, hot stamped hologram and micro text. The electronic security features of the card include Key Management System (KMS) involving Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and Symmetric Key Infrastructure (SKI).

The Union Home Minister P Chidambaram will initiate distribution of Resident Identity (smart) cards in Tamil Nadu on 23rd January, 2012.

A Consortium of Central Public Sector Undertakings comprising of Bharat Electronics (BEL), Electronics Corporation of India (ECIL) and Indian Telephone Industries (ITIL) was awarded the work of direct data collection, capture of photograph and ten fingerprints. Enumerators were assisted by data entry operators, provided by the CPSUs.

The production and personalization of the RIC cards have been undertaken through the CPSUs. They have setup state-of-the-art production and personalization facilities at secure premises for the coastal NPR project. The delivery of the RICs would be undertaken by India Post for secure delivery to the usual residents.

The Centre has given the go ahead to a friendship and cooperation agreement between the cities of Port Blair and Phuket in Thailand, to promote tourism, education and culture.


The Governor of Phuket province and Andamans Lt Governor Prof Ram Kapse would sign the agreement on June 30.

It would also include urban development, solid waste management, commerce and investments, official sources said.

The agreement shall remain in force for a period of five years, renewable for another five years with the consent of both the governments, the sources said.

Prof Kapse, Port Blair Municipal Council chairman K Krishnan and Local Self-government Commissioner Chetan Bhushan Shangi, Commissioner, will leave for Phuket on Wednesday, the sources said.


The signing of the historic agreement is expected to boost tourism in Andaman and Nicobar Islands which has received a serious setback following the tsunami disaster in December last year.

Andaman & Nicobar Islands are tropical island that belongs to India. But, it's closer to southeast asia. Such a great place to visit.
