‘Nagpur is most well organised’

http://news.hitavadaonline.com/news/...age=10&n=13913

Britain’s biggest real estate group, Liberty International, finds Nagpur an interesting place. In fact, “most well organised.” Nothing on the business front as yet, but worth a visit in a chartered flight, in Summer, to attend an exclusive presentation by Municipal Commissioner, Lokesh Chandra. The team, incidentally, was led by the Managing Director of Liberty International, Ian Hawksworth. And if this doesn’t grab your attention, it was led to Nagpur by the Managing Director of Provogue, Nikhil Chaturvedi. Liberty International, which has assets worth 8.2 billion pounds (USD 17 billion or Rs 73,100 crore) to its name, also has a 25 per cent stake in Prozone. Prozone is a 100 per cent subsidiary of Provogue.

Britain’s biggest real estate group, Liberty International, finds Nagpur an interesting place. In fact, “most well organised.” Nothing on the business front as yet, but worth a visit in a chartered flight, in Summer, to attend an exclusive presentation by Municipal Commissioner, Lokesh Chandra. The team, incidentally, was led by the Managing Director of Liberty International, Ian Hawksworth. And if this doesn’t grab your attention, it was led to Nagpur by the Managing Director of Provogue, Nikhil Chaturvedi. Liberty International, which has assets worth 8.2 billion pounds (USD 17 billion or Rs 73,100 crore) to its name, also has a 25 per cent stake in Prozone. Prozone is a 100 per cent subsidiary of Provogue. “We are on a fact finding trip to Nagpur as our partner company Prozone was very upbeat about this city,” Hawksworth told The Hitavada in an exclusive interview. Hawksworth said that he found the city most well organised as compared to other developing cities of India. “I have been to Jaipur, Indore, Aurangabad but somehow Nagpur has impressed me the most,” said Hawksworth who was on his maiden visit here. His company specialises in developing shopping malls on huge formats. “Our malls have a large expanse and has everything including cinema theatres, five star hotels, shopping centres, entertainment and leisure zones, food courts etc,” he said. Hawksworth, whose company features amongst the top 100 companies of UK according to a survey by Financial Times, said that he felt extremely positive on the infrastructural set up here. “The presentation given to us by the Commissioner clearly shows that the city has a huge economic and education base and has a strategic location, which are good factors for business for 30 years down the line,” he said. Though he did not commit any investment, Managing Director of Provogue, Nikhil Chaturvedi said that Liberty International has a 25 per cent stake in Prozone. “Wherever Liberty invests, its minimum investment is always above Rs 500 crore. If we plan to come here, we will invest much above this figure,” he said. He further informed that Prozone will be looking for land somewhere in the range of 50 to 100 acres. It already has an investment to the tune of Rs 1,000 crore in India, he informed. Chaturvedi said that Prozone’s tie up with Liberty International was not only financially but also technically. “Financially it is a strong company but as far as technical expertise is concerned in building malls, it is the strongest. So, the tie up is for capital, and design expertise, both,” he said. Liberty is a 35 year old company based in London. It is amongst the top 100 companies according to a Financial Times rating and has to its credit of building the biggest shopping centre in UK. Hawksworth and Chaturvedi were accompanied by Dr Seek Ngee Huat, who is the President of Singapore-based GIC Real Estate. GIC is also among the biggest real estate companies of Singapore. But currently it does not have any plans for the city. Apart from him, there were three other from GIC and four from Prozone. The team came through its own chartered flight from Mumbai in the morning and also visited the MIHAN command area. However, a local MADC official said that they were for a familiarity visit to the area and had no serious plans for the SEZ. In the evening, the team was given a presentation on the Nagpur city by Municipal Commissioner Lokesh Chandra. The entire team was all praises for the Commissioner after the presentation. “I have visited so many cities across the country but the city’s Commissioner is the most impressive,” he said. Nagpur is very lucky to have a dynamic and a visionary Commissioner like Chandra. He is an asset for the city, added Hawksworth.

Air India, Air Arabia mulls cargo operations from city

http://news.hitavadaonline.com/news/...page=8&n=13993

Air India Express, the low cost version of Air India, is not only planning to start passenger services to Dubai from the city, it also has plans to compensate any shortfall in passenger load by ferrying cargo from the city to the Middle East. Even Air Arabia, which already flies from the city to Sharjah four days a week, is also mulling to start cargo operations from here.

Air India Express, the low cost version of Air India, is not only planning to start passenger services to Dubai from the city, it also has plans to compensate any shortfall in passenger load by ferrying cargo from the city to the Middle East. Even Air Arabia, which already flies from the city to Sharjah four days a week, is also mulling to start cargo operations from here. If the plans reach frution, then the service will be the first of its kind from the city as till now the entire cargo from the region to Middle East is routed through Mumbai or other detinations. “Ferrying cargo to Dubai apart from carrying passengers will be a good option for us as the quantum of international cargo from the city is quite substantial,” said a senior Air India official. This would also help the airline to offset the losses which it might incur in case the flight does not fly to full capacity. Director of R & Y Logistics Private Limited, Shivkumar Rao said that possibly the airlines would be treating its Middle East destination as a transhipment hub. “The quantum of cargo to Middle East from this region is minimal. It would only make sense if places like Dubai and Sharjah are used as transhipment hubs,” he said. Sharjah, the detination that Air Arabia currenlty connects from Nagpur, is a huge cargo hub of the Middle East. From Sharjah the airlines can forward the cargo to the entire Pesian Gulf, a number of Red Sea destinations like Alexandria in Egypt and also to Europe. The quantum of total captive cargo outflow from the region is between 50 and 60 tonnes a month. “This is only what the local market has to offer and is excluding the Road Freight Service (RFS),” he said. Even the inflow of cargo from foreign shores was equally good. And later, if RFS is inlcuded and other states also plans to route their cargo through Nagpur, then the quantum will turn out to be huge, he said. The cargo which is exported from this region comprises of yarn, fruits and vegetables, cut flowers, pharmaceutical products, pharma raw materials, electronic spares and products and even meat.

Wipro plans IT park in Nagpur

http://www.business-standard.com/com...o=282854&tab=r

Acquires 117 acres in the city’s SEZ.

Wipro is close to setting up an IT park in Nagpur and is believed to have acquired 117 acres of land at the new special economic zone in the city. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Infosys Technologies had also evinced interest in setting up IT parks, even though the companies are yet to be allotted land in the SEZ.

According to a source close to the development, the company has acquired 117 acres at the Multi-modal International Hub Airport (Mihan).

The company is also believed to have paid 20 per cent of the total price upfront to Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC).

MADC is the special purpose vehicle (SPV) launched by various Maharashtra state government bodies, including MSIDC and CIDCO among others, for the development of Mihan. MADC Vice-Chairman and Managing Director R C Sinha confirmed the development. “We have already allotted land to Wipro for setting up an IT park.”

Earlier, MADC had allotted 100 acres each to Satyam Computer Systems and Shapoorji Pallonji & Co, and 120 acres to L&T Infocity. The companies would also look at setting up IT parks at Mihan. Wipro is looking at setting up a software development centre in the city. It would also look at using the location for expansion of its business process outsourcing (BPO), business process management and knowledge services among others.

However, it would take a while for the IT park to be operational. Wipro is believed to be looking at 1.5-2 years’ window period before commencing operations from Mihan.

Laxman Badiga, vice- president, administration and facilities, Wipro, said: “We had earlier evinced interest in setting up a facility at Mihan. The process is on, and at this moment we cannot divulge anything further.”

Nagpur is increasingly becoming a hot spot for industries, especially IT companies, as the city is home to over 40 educational institutes. An availability of resources or low salaries, and firms looking at moving over to tier-II cities, have also resulted in gaining an importance for the city.

Cargo godowns at airport demanded

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/C...ow/1994165.cms

NAGPUR: Domestic airlines have demanded cargo godowns, additional aircraft parking bays and an area for washing and minor maintenance of planes at the Nagpur airport. This is in addition to improved facilities in the terminal building.

The wishlist was put forth by airline representatives in a meeting convened by Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) in Mumbai last week. MADC is set to take over the airport operations in a partnership with the Airports Authority of India. This was the first such meeting between MADC and the air-lines and attended by MADC managing director R C Sinha, Nagpur airport director S N Borkar and officials from Indian, Indigo and Jet Airways. Officials from other airlines operating to Nagpur were not present.

According to a MADC official, the airlines demanded more parking bays including one for washing planes. "At the moment none of the airports in India has reserved bays for external washing of planes. But the demand can be considered," he said. This could be an area of 200 X 100 metres, he said.

However an another official said the apron area in the airport can be put to a better use by not having a bay for washing planes. "The airlines have hangars and maintenance bases in other cities where planes are cleaned and repaired," he said. Kingfisher Airlines and Indigo Airlines have sought bays for night parking of planes at the Nagpur airport.

Borkar said the with the expansion of terminal building there will be more space for check in counters. The airport management is also working towards segregation of domestic and international movement in the terminal building. "There is also a demand for internet WiFi connectivity in the terminal and cargo storage space by airlines wishing to start cargo operations," he stated. Air Arabia which is operating flights to Sharjah since October 2005 has been demanding segregation of domestic and international traffic. "It is very much possible that a passenger might exchange boarding pass or passport with a fellow traveller and fly to Sharjah. The staff at the boarding gate does not check passport. We have also demanded an increase in immigration counters at the airport," an airline official said.

Sources said the issue of ground handling of operations like marshalling, ladder operation and several others was also discussed in the last week's meeting and it was suggested that airport authority take over the task from the carriers which do the work at the moment.

City
City’s biggest ever land deal at whopping 105 cr
May. 2nd, 2007
by Staff Reporter
In the biggest ever single land deal of the city, seniormost judge of the Bombay High Court Justice Jai Narayan Patel on Monday sold his 41.14 acre ancestral land at Mouza Chinchbhuvan on Wardha Road, for a whopping Rs 105 crore. The deal was formally registered with Registrar Office on Monday afternoon between Justice J N Patel, his brothers Shrinarayan Hiralal Patel and Harinarayan Hiralal Patel, and Mumbai’-based Hagwood Commercial Developers Private Limited, floated by Provogue Group of Companies headed by Nikhil Chaturvedi. This is the biggest ever registry of any land situated within city limits with a staggering Rs 5.77 crore stamp duty paid by the purchaser. According to the government ready-reckoner, the existing price of land situated on Wardha Road is close to Rs 10 lakh per acre. But this deal concluded on a mind-boggling price of Rs 2.55 crore per acre or Rs 585 per square foot. The entire deal was transparent and as per the instructions of Justice Patel, entire consideration was recorded in the sale deed.

The land is situated in Mouza Chinchbhuvan (survey no 25, 29 and 30), near the Khapri fly-over. Survey no. 25 is spread over 63,400 sq mt, survey no. 29 is spread over 61,500 sq mt while survey no. 30 is spread over 41,600 sq mt., total area being 1,66,500 sq mt or nearly 18 lakh sq ft. Besides Justice Patel and two brothers, two more family members - brother Shivnarayan Hiralal Patel and sister Lilavati Tukaram Yadav - have signed the deed as consenting parties. Hagwood Construction intends constructing a massive state-of-the-art township akin to the Hiranandani Estate at Thane. A five-star hotel and a shopping mall will also come up there. The purchaser paid Rs 90 crore by demand draft no. 230061 dated April 28, 2007, drawn on Corporation Bank, Mumbai, payable at Nagpur. Remaining Rs 15 crore will be paid on or before January 1, 2008, for which the purchaser has furnished a bank guarantee by the Centurion Bank of Punjab. Senior officials of the Registrar’s office were tight-lipped about details of the transaction but confirmed registration of the sale deed. This is the highest stamp duty ever paid in the history of Nagpur Registry office, a senior officer confirmed. Moreover, the deal was duly evaluated by the Registrar of Stamps and since it was 20 times the price of the ready-recknor, there was no legal hassle. A leading tax consultant also pointed out that since the entire deal was on record, Justice Patel will have to pay 10% of the sale value as capital gains tax. The Hitavada has learnt that earlier the Oberoi Group had offered Rs 80 lakh per acre for the land and later hiked it to Rs 1.25 crore, but the Patel family expected a better deal which which materialised on Monday. Ready-reckoner raises questions The biggest land deal in the asking per acre price of the region has once again raised the question of gross undervaluation of properties in the existing ready-reckoner. This results in loss of revenue to the State Government and undervaluation of properties. A senior registry official admitted that an upward revision of the ready-recknor was needed. The state should also re-consider the amount of stamp duty on deals where the ready-reckoner price has been exceeded. Besides tax liability, it is the high amount of stamp duty which deters people from declaring the correct value of the deal.

Resolution passed on ‘No Shopping Frontage Roads’
Apr. 21st, 2007
by Principal Correspondent
General body of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) on Friday passed a controversial and legally questionable resolution seeking deletion of Rule 13.6.2 of Development Control Rules (DCR) pertaining to declaration of 27 major city roads as ‘No Shopping Frontage Roads’.

The NMC administration and its Town Planning Department (TPD) has made a suggestion seeking modification in the regulation 13.6.2 empowering the Municipal Commissioner and Chairman of the Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) to allow commercial use on the plots situated on these roads, considering the merits of each case, in consultation with the Director of Town Planning. Ex-Mayor Vikas Thakre had opposed the amendment in the Development Control Rule in view of Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in the High Court and direction to NMC for strict implementation of ‘NO Shopping Frontage’ regulation. In the meeting, Vikas Thakre asked the Mayor about legal opinion about this resolution. Deputy Municipal Commissioner Gopichand Rathod said that NMC counsel Surendra Mishra has opined that this decision will not come in the way of NMC to discuss the proposal seeking modification in Development Control Rules. The proposal has to be strictly in consonance with the provisions of Sec 37 (1) of MRTP Act, 1966, and the procedure laid down under 37 (1) has to be complied with scrupulously. Adv Mishra has further advised the NMC to take care that the meeting should not deliberate upon the merit and de-merit or challenge the issue raised in the PIL or order passed by the High Court. However, according to sources, hours before the meeting the NMC received opinion from the same legal advisor to withdraw the proposal and keep it in abeyance in view of pendency of PIL demanding implementation of Rule 13.6.2 and a counter-petition filed by Nag Vidarbha Builders Association seeking its deletion. Both the petitions are pending before the High Court and hence Thakre had advised the NMC not to go ahead with this resolution. Ignoring this telephonic advise, the NMC General Body passed the resolution with one amendment demanding deletion of Regulation 13.6.2 from the DC rules. This amendment was tabled by Anil Sole and Praful Gudadhe. NMC general body also decided to give a sum of Rs five lakh for the Deekshabhoomi’s golden jubilee celebrations. The programme has been organised on April 29. This resolution was tabled by Nana Shamkule, Chairman of NMC Standing Committee. The survey of families under Below Poverty Line (BPL) under Suvarna Jayanti Sahari Rojgar Yojana was tabled and was endorsed by the general body.

Punish NMC for contempt’
May. 4th, 2007
Having passed a controversial resolution seeking deletion of 27 No Shopping Frontage roads from the Development Control Rules (DCR), the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is in trouble as a vigilant citizen has sought contempt action against the NMC and its officials for clearing such a patently illegal resolution.

According to the contempt application filed by a vigilant citizen Anil Wadpalliwar who had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) before the High Court seeking implementation of rule 13.6.2 of the DCR where commercial use on 27 busy city roads was prohibited, the NMC had committed a gross and wilful contempt of the High Court order. The High Court in its order dated November 20 had directed the NMC and Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) not to allow any construction activity on these 27 roads which includes prominent busy roads like North Ambazari Road, East High Court Road, entire Ring Road, part of Central Bazar Road, Amravati Road, Hill Road, Wardha Road, Koradi Road, Katol Road. Later when it was brought to the notice of the High Court that construction activity was on despite a crystal clear order, the High Court directed the NMC and NIT to scrupulously follow the order and prohibit any commercial construction activity on these 27 No Shopping Frontage roads. Further, the High Court sought a detail list of violations taken so far. The NMC and NIT in their affidavit-reply admitted gross violation of rule 13.6.2 and according to preliminary survey furnished a list of 213 buildings. Even the notices under MRTP Act for violation of sanctioned user was issued and sealing action on the line of New Delhi was sought to be initiated. Meanwhile, the NMC in its general body meeting held on April 20, 2007 (vide agenda item no 9) passed a resolution seeking deletion of Rule 13.6.2 of the DCR and permit commercial construction and usage on these 27 roads. Against this resolution the petitioner has sought contempt action against NMC and its officials. Slamming the general body for passing a patently illegal resolution, the applicant pointed out that it amounts to criminal contempt of court, since the matter is sub-judice and resolution was passed without seeking prior-permission of the High Court. The said action amounts to over-reaching the interim orders passed by the High Court by showing undue haste by the NMC, the petitioner stated. The resolutions has challenged the very authority of the High Court and sought to nullify the effect and operation of interim orders passed by the High Court, that too by over-looking the legal advise furnished to NMC, the petitioner stated. The resolution has sent a message that Corporation has no regard for the orders of the High Court and it considers itself high and mighty, the application charged. The petitioner has also brought to the notice of the High Court various construction activities and proposed commercial complexes on No Shopping Frontage roads in gross breach of the High Court order.

Nagpur to be India's first planned international metropolis: International herald tribune

http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/05/10/asia/city.php

* The Indian government has handpicked Nagpur to be fattened and primped into an international metropolis.

* Lush parks and smooth roads have been lain, and malls and multiplex cinemas have sprouted. A drastically renovated airport is to become the cargo hub of India, with a terminal that is 100 times larger than the existing one and is to handle at least 100 jets at a time instead of the current five. An ecofriendly mass-transit system is being planned to absorb an expected surge in road traffic, years before the average Nagpurian owns a car. The government is building a special economic zone with tax breaks and ready-to-use water, electricity and fiber optic cable, in the hope of attracting 100,000 technology jobs to a city long dominated by coal mining.

* One fact separates Nagpur, with an estimated 2.5 million people, from the other 55 cities: When the Indian government selected it as the air cargo hub for the country, it guaranteed skeptical investors that this obscure city would eventually rank with the busiest airports in the world, with all the attendant job creation and prosperity. Nagpur was chosen because it lies near the geographic center of India and is a crossroads of road and rail traffic.

* "It has the potential to be the growth nucleus of central India," Lokesh Chandra, the fresh-faced Nagpur municipal commissioner, said in an interview. Any city chief might make such a claim. But in Nagpur, the blueprints of the new airport suggest that here, at least, India has genuinely broken with its old build-it-only-after-a-catastrophic-shortage approach to infrastructure, adopting something closer to the Chinese if-you-build-it-they-will-come philosophy.

* Nagpur got its first international flight just 18 months ago, but it is already planning a second runway long enough for jets like the Airbus A380 superjumbo. A new terminal, already being built, will occupy 300,000 square meters, or 3.2 million square feet, up from 3,000 square meters. It is designed to accommodate 14 million passengers a year, a 20-fold increase. Consultants from Changi Airport in Shanghai have been hired to spruce up the duty-free shopping.

* Next to the airport is a vast special economic zone, an enclave of relative economic freedom designed to attract investors. Boeing, the plane maker, is setting up a maintenance hub there, and in an adjoining technology park Indian outsourcing vendors like Satyam Computer Services and HCL Technologies have signed up for land.

Together, the airport, cargo operation and park are expected to employ more than 100,000 people.

The project has made Nagpur's renaissance a fait accompli for many investors, and their enthusiasm has bid up real estate prices.

A decade ago, an acre, or 0.4 hectare, of land on the main street, Wardha Road, sold for 100,000 rupees, or about $2,400 at current exchange rates. Today it costs 20 to 40 times more, property developers say. Even in less lucrative areas, prices have at least doubled in five years.

Abhijeet Group to power MIHAN

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/C...ow/2030466.cms

NAGPUR: It’s icing on the cake for the Orange City. For the city’s dream project, the power will be generated by a city-based power company. Abhijeet Group, an infrastructure arm of Neco Jayaswal Group, has emerged as the successful bidder for setting up a 100 MW coal-based power plant for the proposed Multi-modal International Hub Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN). The financial bids for the project were opened at the Maharashtra Airport Development Company office in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Forty players had initially evinced interest in the project and the final competition was amongst Abhijeet Group, KSK Energy of Hyderabad, Cethar Vessels of Trichy, Shriram EPC from Chennai and Crompton Greaves of Mumbai.
Abhijeet Group emerged as the lowest bidder with a tariff of less than Rs 3 /kwh. Ernst & Young were the exclusive transaction advisors to MADC for the selection process.

As per the bid agreement, the work on the Rs 850 crore power project should start within 30 months, said the group’s patriarch and chairman Basantlal Saw.

MADC had invited developers for the 100-MW (2X 50 MW) thermal power plant with an inbuilt provision to expand to 200 MW.

The bid under build-operate, transfer (BOT) basis was for operating, maintaining, transmission and distribution of power for MIHAN where a special economic zone (SEZ) is also coming up besides several value addition in a total area of over 4,300 hectares.

It started by bagging its first order — a 540 MW plant in Jharkhand. "Financial closure for that project would be achieved by this month end. Its the first power generation plant of the company," said Manoj Jayaswal, one of the directors of Abhijeet Group. The company has also joined hands with the Darda group for setting up a 1035 MW power project in Yavatmal that is proposed to be completed by year 2010.

"With the selection of Abhijeet Group as the supplier of power, we have taken giant step in fulfilling the commitment of chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh to make Nagpur an international city", said RC Sinha, vice-chairman and managing director of MADC.

An elated Abhishek Jayaswal, director of the company, remarked that : "It is a moment of great pride. Having domiciled in the city for last 35 years and having lived every moment for the city’s growth, we owe this project to people of the Orange City ."

Abhijeet Group has a diversified industrial profile and has presence in the road, power and mining sectors, apart from pursuing its interest in the steel sector.
