Kerala Tourism gets nod for seaplane services

The Kerala government on Wednesday gave its go ahead to the Kerala Tourism to launch seaplane services to boost tourism.

"It has been decided to go ahead with seaplane operations which will boost tourism activities in the state," Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told reporters after the weekly cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

"Authorities have been asked to go ahead and begin talks with seaplane operators to begin operations," he added.

In June 2013, seaplane operations were inaugurated but it were kept on hold following strong protests from the fishing community as they feared that their livelihood will be affected.

"Yes, there were issues. At certain places we have been able to convince those who had fears and while at some other places our talks are continuing. Hence, we have decided to begin operations where there will be no resistance," said Chandy.

The places, the tourism department identified for seaplane services, include Kollam, Alapuzha, Bekal (Kasargode) Bolgatty (in Kochi) Wayanad and Munnar.

Generally seaplane services are operated by aircraft that can take six to eight passengers and these aircraft can fly around 6,500 feet above ground which is expected to provide a breathtaking view of the greenery which Kerala is known for.

The water landing destinations are Kollam, Alleppy, Kochi, Bekal, and Munnar. TVM will be the boarding place for passengers from land similar to Nedumbasseri. I do not think there is any waterdrom existing or proposed in TVM.

AMRUT seeks to lay a foundation to enable cities and towns to eventually grow into smart cities.

Source - The Hindu

Cities with one lakh selected for implementing Amrut while cities to be selected for Smart Cities will be based on competition among cities in each states.

“Selection of potential smart city is based on a two-stage competition — ‘City Challenge’ competition. First stage of competition is intra-state. This involves evaluating all cities and towns in each state based on a set of criteria evolved by the Ministry of Urban Development in consultation with all stakeholders including states/UTs,” said the official.

Cities nominated by each state will participate in the second stage of ‘inter-city’ competition. These 100 cities will prepare smart city plans for each city and they will be evaluated in the ministry by a panel of experts based on a set of elaborate criteria.

Hubs for the Seaplane operations in Kerala would be TRV, COK, CCJ airports.
That might be the reason for this.

There is an important condition for Waterdromes. There should be around 1 Km of straight water stretch for the seaplanes to land safely. As Kollam and Alleppy have lakes with larger area and have more backwater tourism potential, the backwater based waterdromes are in these places. Other potential waterdrome in Kollam is Paravur Lake. Lets hope Ashtamudi Waterdrome will be a great success to fillip the prospects of Paravur waterdrome

Akathumuri near Varkala can be considered for this. But if GoK add Paravur in the list of destinations, then Akathumuri may not get the chance as the distance between these two places are just 17kms.

Only ONE Smart city approved by Central BJP govt for Kerala when 13 smart cities approved for Uttar pradesh.This is injustice to KeralitesNo Kollam...


Allotted only one, Kerala demands 7 smart cities

As per the project, 100 Smart Cities are to be developed across the country

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy today asked the Centre to develop seven cities in the state under the Smart City project, after being allotted only one from the lot of 100 cities to be developed across the country.

Chandy, who met Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu here, sought seven cities in Kerala under the project. "It was a review meeting with the Kerala Chief Minister today," said Naidu, after the meeting with Chandy. Asked about Chandy's demand, Naidu said he has sought seven smart cities for Kerala.

As per the project, 100 Smart Cities would be developed across the country. While Uttar Pradesh has been assigned 13 Smart Cities, Kerala has got just one.

The Kerala Chief Minister also gave a memorandum to the Urban Development Minister, in which he sought the Centre's intervention in the Kerala Water Supply Project, implemented with a loan from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The Kerala Water Supply Project is implemented with a loan from the JICA and the Kerala Water Authority as the executing agency to augment/rehabilitate water supply systems of Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode cities and adjoining villages and to construct the new water supply systems for Pattuvam, Cherthala and Meenad. The project, which also includes institutional strengthening for the Kerala Water Authority will benefit 41 lakh people by 2036, the memorandum said. The total sanctioned cost of the project is Rs 2,987 crore.

The memorandum further stated that the government, on a review of the project, finds that the remaining work can be completed within one year for which an extension of disbursement upto December 2016 is required.

A comprehensive proposal in this regard has been sent to the ministry of Urban Development.

The proposal is to be cleared by the Department of Economic Affairs, after clearance by the Ministry of Urban Development and sent to the JICA for loan disbursement extension.

The Chief Minister urged the urban development minister to expedite action for a positive recommendation to JICA.

Kollam,emerging real estate hotspot in Kerala after Kochi, Calicut and TVM.

Every town and village in Kerala is a real estate hot spot as all Malayalees who live outside Kerala, not just the ones overseas but also the ones who live in other parts of the country, wish to invest in land back home. This is obvious as one travels by road in Kerala. The highways all over this small state are lined not just with temples, churches and mosques but also with architect designed villas and towering multi-storeyed apartment blocks.



The rush to invest in real estate in Kerala has also attracted the unscrupulous operators in this line of business, so much so, that the government has enacted an ordinance to regulate real estate in the state; making Kerala only the second state after Maharashtra to enact such an ordinance.



Kochi continues to be the preferred choice for most non resident Indians (NRIs). The reasons for this are connectivity, availability of good schools, colleges and hospitals as well as the options for employment. Talking about connectivity, Kochi is well connected by road with all parts of Kerala and other parts of India. The international airport has played a major role in giving this southern city its international flavor.



The city’s premier real estate destination is the Marine Drive where the property pricesare sky high. However, the locality which is very popular with most home buyers today is Edapally, where the average prices are about INR 4600 per sq ft. This is the only locality which has shown a marginal increase in prices in the past few months. Property prices in Aluva, a nearby town have gone down by 6% and are quoting at INR 3700 per sq ft in the quarter from January to March 2015. Other localities which are also preferred by home buyers are Panampally Nagar, Kakkanad and Kaloor.



Take the case of another suburb of Kochi, Thrippunithura. Once the capital of the Kingdom of Cochin, Thrippunithura has been the choice of the Dubai based developer, the Legend Group, to develop luxury apartments covering over a million sq feet.



Kozhikode or Calicut, as it is better remembered, is on the map of hot spots to invest in Kerala. It has been so for some time and has attracted investments mainly from the Middle East, where a large contingent of its residents are employed. Of late, many Information Technology companies have opened offices in this city. This has attracted young professionals to the city.



The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Kozhikode is also playing an important role in training young managers. Kozhikode has an international airport and is also well connected to Bangalore and Mysore by road. The city is relatively clean and is on a fast track to growth, especially as the government has plans to introduce a Light Metro Rail to connect the city with its other parts.



Thiruvananthapuram, the capital city of Kerala, is also the second largest one in the state. The city is located close to the Tamil Nadu border and is an entry point between the two states. The majority of the residents of this city are government employees. Most of the development work is at localities such as Vellayambalam, Vazhuthacaud and Vattiyoorkavu. The Technopark at Karyavattom has been attracting a lot of young professionals which in turn has given real estate a fillip. Real estate gurus predict that if the proposed Vizhinjam Port project is completed, it is likely to be a catalyst in the real estate market. The government is also planning a mini metro rail project which will benefit commuters in a big way.



Other places of interest are Kollam, Thrissur, Kannur, Palakkad, Kanhangad and Kottayam. However, new trends are seen with people investing in places such Cheranallur which is a northern suburb of Kochi. Many corporates and NRIs have invested in this village mainly because of its good connectivity. The National Highway (NH) 66 which connects Kochi with Panvel-Mumbai and the NH 47C also intersects at Cheranallur. This has enhanced its popularity with the developers.

Skyline Kollam project is charging a huge premium if the rates mentioned for Cochin/Aluva is correct.
