The news about accenture did come out in the net sometime back, not able to trace it now. Regarding Infosys the last piece of news stated they may not completely log out of Bengal....but with the current rates at rajarhat infosys may not be willing to pay that much for their 100 acres.

River Cruise on Hooghly

Source: TOI Epaper

Hooghly ghats on cruise map
Kalyan Moitra | TNN
Kolkata: After beach tourism, it’s now river cruises. The government is going all out to tap into the history that has flown with the Hooghly for centuries.
Tourism minister Manab Mukherjee has chalked out a plan to promote river tourism, which includes exploring heritage ghats along the Ganga and a short tourist-circuit linking Kolkata to Chinsurah, Chandernagore, Bandel, Serampore and Belur. This follows an earlier plan by the government to start a tourist-circuit connecting major historical and heritage hot spots located on either side of the Hooghly.
This time it has opted for river cruises to show-case the historically important ghats of the Ganga from Kolkata to Murshidabad.
“There are so many ghats on the banks of the Ganga which are rich in history. We are planning to showcase these ghats to tourists. This will be part of our tourism promotion drive,” said G D Gautama, principal secretary of the tourism department.
The tourism department recently discussed these projects with Kolkata Municipal Corporation, KoPT and the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). “The government has almost finalised both projects. We do hope they all clear will be sounded soon,” said G M Kapur, state convener, INTACH. “We are expecting to start river cruises for ghats by this winter,” Kapur added.
In this case, the state government will act as a catalyst to promote history , heritage and culture of these locations. Private tour operators will run the show.
Tourists opting for this chance to enjoy the beauty of the river and its ghats and other historical places to be included in the circuit would get a detailed document with maps and highlights from the past. “We will act as the facilitator. The state government will have no financial burden. We will not even spend anything for this scheme,” the secretary said.
INTACH has already identified and listed such historically important ghats — 44 ghats on the Kolkata side and 30 ghats on the Howrah side.
The tourism department has already discussed this project with officials of Kolkata Port Trust. “The KoPT will have to approve this,” Gautama added. The project has been discussed with the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and other civic bodies as well. “All these ghats are to be renovated so that we can exhibit them. The civic bodies will undertake this work,” he said.

Reliance to setup biotech park

Reliance to setup Biotechnology Park in WB

Kolkata, July 12: The Reliance Group has proposed to set up a Biotechnology Park at Kalyani in West Bengal as part of the Dhuribhai Ambani Reliance Institute of Information Technology.

Replying to a debate in the state assembly to budgetary demands for grants of his department for the year 2007-2008, the state minister-in-charge of department of bio-technology Surjya Kanata Mishra said the department would encourge setting up of biotechnology parks in the state.

One such park is coming up at Kharagpur based on concept note prepared by IIT Kharagpur.

He said Biotechnology Council and the nascent department of biotechnology in the state were striving hard to attract companies to set up their operations in Kolkata and other parts of West Bengal keeping in view the rich biodiversity, the excellent pool of talent and R&D facilities offered by the state.

During debate in the house on the budgetary demands of grants for his department, West Bengal`s Minister for Information Technology Debesh Das said in the state assembly today that two IT Parks are planned to be set up at Durgapur and Siliguri in West Bengal.

The minister said the proposed IT Park at Durgapur would come up on 25 acres of land and that of at Siliguri on 37 acres.

He said it had also been decided that an IT Park would be developed at Kharagpur.

The park had been planned to house companies dealing in high-end software development and R&D operations, VLSI and microprocessors and embedded systems, he said.

Trans-Asia of US plans to invest US$ 1 billion crore



Quote:
Kolkata: Trans-Asia Infrastructure Holding LLC of the US is planning to make a foray into urban infrastructure and township development projects with a kitty of Rs 4,000 crore ($1 billion). The company is also planning to tap the market next year to raise funds for the purpose.

Dr Ravindra Verma, managing director of Second Vivekananda Bridge Tollway Company Pvt Ltd (SVBTC), said: "We would tap the market next year to raise funds while a significant portion would come from internal accruals."

PASGIC LLC, a joint venture between the Pacific Alliance Group and Trans-Asia of the US, and the Stardec Group of the Philippines, leads SVBTC, which designed and built the 880-meter-long cable-stayed extra-dosed bridge.

"We are lining up a significant portion of the fund for projects in West Bengal. This would include new projects like urban mixed land use and township development projects," Verma said.

According to him, Howrah's horizon will change after the toll way project. "Moreover, there will be future industrial growth on the Howrah side, with a lot of activities, like setting up of factories and assembly plants, taking place. We believe a lot of townships will be needed for that. We will be looking at mixed land use development projects for commercial and residential purposes," Verma said.

The company has also lined up funds for proposed infrastructure projects like a deep-sea port at Haldia, light rail transit system in Kolkata and greenfield airport in the state.

While it will focus heavily on eastern India, Trans-Asia Infrastructure will also look for projects in northern India, in places like Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

The company might also co-invest with other companies for special economic zone projects, Verma said.

WB govt fixes Rs 1.94 lakh/acre for JSW unit

Press Trust of India / Kolkata July 16, 2007



The West Bengal government has finalised the land rates for JSW Bengal Steel's 10 million tonne integrated steel plant at Salboni in Midnapore district. Biswadip Gupta, CEO, JSW Bengal Steel said production is expected to start from April 2011.

Gupta said 4,500 acre would be required for the plant, and 4,000 acre would be taken from the government at Rs 1.94 lakh per acre - a rate fixed by the land and land reforms department. "We are expecting a government order on this to be issued this week," Gupta said.

He said the remaining 500 acre would be acquired from private holders at rates varying between Rs 2.50 lakh and Rs 3 lakh per acre.

The union environment ministry would hold a hearing in Delhi on August 17 on granting of environment clearance for the project, Gupta said adding that Jindal group chairman Sajjan Jindal would be present at the hearing.

Replying to a question, he said the company had not faced any resistance from the locals about locating the factory at Salboni. "In fact, they are very enthusiastic in having the factory there."

Modernisation of Kolkata airport to begin in January

Modernisation of Kolkata airport to begin in January

EAW Staff - Kolkata

Work on modernising, expanding and renovating the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport will be taken up early next year, civil aviation secretary Ashok Chawla said recently.

"The work will begin from next January. It will be done by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and would be completed in about 30 months," Chawla told the media after a meeting with the West Bengal chief minister, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee.

The Rs 1,500 crore project to be funded by the AAI, will include construction of an integrated terminal to handle nearly 16 million domestic and four million international passengers. Also, the two existing runways will be extended and an additional hangar will be built as part of the project.

Chawla said there was an urgent need to build a third runway and the state government had been asked to provide land for this. During the meeting, Chawla informed the CM that the airport in Cooch Behar was being revived and would become operational by mid-August.

Noting that the civil aviation ministry had commissioned a feasibility report on operating small commercial aircraft from the Behala airstrip in the metropolis, he said the report would be received within the next three months.

"It will be done by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) "I see some contradictions here - I recall an earlier piece stating that the project will be 'managed' by AAI and executed by a private firm. Can someone please confirm?
