Robust medical facilities attract NRIs

Quote:
Its world-class medical facilities have made Ludhiana popular among NRIs living in Western countries. With city-based hospitals receiving around 100 NRI patients every month, doctors claim that there has been a 20% yearly increase in their number.

Medical superintendent of Apollo hospital Kapil Chib said, ''As many as 15 to 20 NRI patients visit the hospital every month and their number increases during winters.'' Explaining its reason, he added, ''The national health system in the UK is quite complicated, while treatments in the USA and Canada are very expensive. NRIs come here as they get best facilities at cheaper rates. The treatments that cost about Rs 2 lakh in the city entail over Rs 20 lakh in the Western countries.'' Their footfall started increasing after the Apollo hospital achieved Joint Commission International accreditation. It was a US-based accreditation body dedicated to improving healthcare quality and safety around the world, he claimed.

Gurgaon fails to emulate Panchkula's success story
Quote:
GURGAON: Despite being the IT hub of the state, Gurgaon has failed to make it big, especially when it comes to infrastructure and good governance.

But at the same time, Panchkula, has managed to reap the benefits, especially because of its proximity to the state capital, Chandigarh.

Apart from that, there are a couple of other reasons working in favour of Panchkula.

For example, most of the serving as well as retired bureaucrats (almost 70% of them) live in Panchkula and therefore there is constant monitoring of the exisisting infrastructure and maintenance work, which is not the case in Gurgaon.

The other big reason is of course the way in which these two cities have come up. While on the one hand, Panchkula has had a proper development plan, Gurgaon did not have one to begin with.

Chandigarh’s Master Plan gets in shape

Jul 11, 2012

CHANDIGARH: Final changes are being made in Chandigarh's Master Plan and the document would soon be sent to the ministry of urban development after peer review by architects in Delhi. In keeping with the projected population figure of 16 lakh in the year 2031, many policy changes have been incorporated.

To tackle the growing traffic congestion in the sectoral markets, the master plan would require construction of underground parking lots in the area outside showrooms. The concept will be implemented in sectors 7, 9, 11,15, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 34, 35 and 37.

Similarly, parking norm of 1.8 equivalent car space (ECS)/100 sq m is on the higher side and will be reduced to 1 ECS/unit. All houses located in an area of one kanal or above need to have parking facilities equivalent to 1 ECS per floor of the building and further subject to the condition that adequate parking is planned to ensure no vehicle is parked outside the premises.

Uniformity will also be brought in the names of roads in Chandigarh. As of now, all broader roads are called 'margs' and the narrower ones are christened 'paths', which becomes a bit confusing for visitors.

"Presently, the detailed project report of Metro rail is being incorporated in the Master Plan. Otherwise, most of the document is ready," said a UT official. There has been a demand from hoteliers that one or more sites be identified as tourism and hospitality zones with three-four sites for hotels and supporting infrastructure like regular taxi service.

Each of the issues taken up in the master plan will be notified to ensure that there is no further deviation from the city's original character.

Indeed it is.

Arun Mohan is a "certified SEO Consultant" from Trivandrum and his "source" is a site run by himself, so I suspect that he's just here to get hits on his directory sites.

Process to purchase 98 buses set in motion

Quote:
Chandigarh, September 1
Paving the way for the purchase of 98 buses, officials of the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) after opening the technical bids has forwarded the case to the Secretary Transport for approval. Two companies, Tata and Volvo, have qualified.

Officials in the transport department said once cleared by the UT Administration, the financial bids would be opened before the buses were purchased. The CTU had floated tenders for the purchase of 49

AC buses and 49 non-AC buses in the first week of August. The deadline was extended thrice due to technical reasons.

The new buses will have all features mandated by the Ministry of Urban Development under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewable Mission (JNNURM). Sources said Volvo and Tata had qualified for the AC buses while Tata had qualified for the non-AC buses. The buses have to be provided within 120 days. To attract the bidders, the annual maintenance period has been reduced to three years. The CTU authorities are planning to install CCTV camera and passenger information system (PIS) in the buses. The officials said previous attempts to purchase the buses had failed due to one or the other reason. Last time, the proposal to buy AC buses was grounded due to single bidder as officials were reluctant to accept the bid and had forwarded the case to the Centre for approval. The high cost of the buses against a single tender had delayed the matter.

Kannadigas may be small in nos, but have made an impact

Quote:
Their number may be small, but their contribution to the city is immeasurable. Only 500 people form Karnataka or Kannadigas as they are called, have made the city beautiful there home and of this, 90 of them, are specialised doctors in the city's premiere institute Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research.


Some work as teachers across city schools, another dozen or so are working in the banking and commerce sector, and a few are contributing in shaping the countries policy, working as bureaucrats.

The community, which started coming to city in the early '80's were either transferred or sent on deputation. Most Kannadigas hold important posts in government departments, while some have even entered into the real estate sector in the tricity.

In 1978, the community formed the Kannada Sangha, offering a platform for all Kannadigas to get together and celebrate festivals such as Ganesh Chaturthi, Kannada Rajyotsava (celebrated on November 1 as Karnataka Formation Day, every year) etc.

The community is known for their love for the language and literature, validated by the eight Gyanpeeth awards for literature, won by the members of this community.

Such is the Kannadigas love for Chandigarh that they have demanded that Punjabi be declared as the official language of Chandigarh. The Punjabi-Kannada Sahit Sabha has written a letter to the UT administrator Shivraj Patil demanding for the same.

24-years ago, Manohar Kumar came to the city for a personal visit but later decided to make city his home. He now owns a house in SAS Nagar, and says, “Chandigarh is a great city, but I miss the literary functions organised in Karnataka regularly. Chandigarh cannot be called beautiful since it has more than 300 liquor vends but only four government libraries.”

His demand from the Chandigarh administration is to establish more libraries in Chandigarh.

Panditrao Dharennavar, assistant professor at Post Graduate Government College, Sector 46, came to the city in 2003, after he was selected through Union Public Service Commission exam. He learnt Punjabi and has penned eight books in Punjabi and later formed the Punjabi-Kannada Sahit Sabha.

He has also translated Sri Jap Ji Saheb, Sri Sukhmani Saheb, Zafaranama in Kannada and has been traveling on a bicycle campaigning for Punjabi language.

Speaking to HT, Dharennavar says, “Kannada community has written a letter to the UT Administrator to make Punjabi as the official language of Chandigarh as 80% of the population in city speaks Punjabi.”

On asking, about the demand for a Kannada Bhawan for his community, Dharennavar says, we have mentioned in the letter that we will demand land for Kannada Bhawan, when Punjabi becomes the official language else there is no point in having a bhawan of our own.

LC Krishna, who came from Bangalore 30-years ago, is a leading real estate leader in tricity. He says, “If a person really want to enjoy life, he should come and stay in Chandigarh as it is the best place in terms of education, healthcare and other basic amenities. It is a city of great opportunity.”

The main festival of the people is 'Ugadi' (Kannada New Year), which falls in April. Kannadigas consider this time to be the most auspicious for commencing new ventures.

Another festival, which is celebrated with great pomp and show, is Ganapati festival; a day on which Lord Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati, resurrected to life on earth with the head of an elephant.

Mysore Dasara is the 'Nada Habba' or the state festival of Karnataka, often called Navaratri it is a 10-day festival with the last day celebrated as Vijayadashami. According to legend, Vijayadashami denotes the victory of truth over evil.

Karnataka cuisine includes many vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes and some typical dishes include Holige (a traditional sweet flatbread), Mysore Pak, Curd Rice, Mysore Rasam, Chittar Anna, Idli, Dosa, Uppama.

After around three months of planning, several rounds of meetings with stakeholders and co-ordination between different departments, the UT Administration managed to reclaim 108 acres of land that had been encroached upon for several decades. Political parties were also taken on board before the drive ensuring that it was undertaken peacefully.
As the last structure fell on Friday, the UT Estate Office took possession of land worth more than Rs 3,000 crore. The area would now be developed into a commercial hub with the planning for the area having been outlined in the draft Master Plan.

Colony Number 5 was among the biggest colonies in the city with a population of around 50,000 people. For rehabilitation of the slum dwellers, a biometric survey was conducted in the year 2006. After completion of construction of one-room tenements at Dhanas, the beneficiaries were asked to shift to the houses allotted to them. However, they were still reluctant to shift; they demanded more time, citing several reasons such as proximity to place of work and school session still being on. In fact, no one had till the last day expected that the demolition would actually take place.
The planning for the demolition drive was started around three months back. Officials held several rounds of meetings with the colony dwellers. Representations by the colony residents were heard by UT Deputy Commissioner Mohd Shayin. Those who were eligible for getting houses were convinced to shift and the others informed why they were ineligible for allotment.

"It took months of planning for the drive to be successful. All stakeholders were taken on board before the drive was undertaken. We held several rounds of meetings with different people. Then the drive was undertaken," said the Deputy Commissioner.
The beneficiaries who had been issued allotment letters had been given a month's time to shift. Later, a notice asking the beneficiaries to shift within 21 days was issued. A month before the drive was to start, public announcements were made from the religious places in the colony asking the residents to shift. Officials also regularly visited the colony during this time.
Around 200 people were taken into preventive custody. These mostly included the leaders in the colony who could have instigated the others. As many as 70 of them were released on Friday after the drive was over.

With the Lok Sabha elections scheduled for next year, it was being speculated that, as has happened in the past, the drive would get stalled. However, the political parties were taken on board. Apart from senior BJP leader Harmohan Dhawan who protested and was arrested, there were no protests by political parties. While some leaders visited the site, most senior leaders of political parties stayed away.
The roads leading to the colony were sealed banning the entry of any outside vehicles. Staff was also deployed to ensure that there was no one in the hutments while these were being demolished. After realising that the drive was not going to be stalled, people started packing their belongings and shifting out. Around 2,000 policemen were deployed at the spot for maintaining law and order.
