IISc to setup synchrotron and R&D centre at Chitradurga

Bangalore: In order to build a strong research team and to promote science and technology among teachers and students and The Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) has decided to setup a Talent Development Centre in Chitradurga (Challakere) district. The centre is about 100 acres and will have a synchrotron centre. The government has granted 2 crore for the centre and has handed over 32 used government buildings for the purpose. The first batch of the training is likely to begin January or February.

B.N. Raghunandan, senior scientist at the IISc said that "For this, the institute has decided to set up a full-fledged campus in Chitradurga, where training will be offered to teachers who, in turn, can pass on the knowledge to their pupils." He also said that the IISc had been conducting such training programmes for 35 years in various districts, but it had now decided to set up a permanent campus in Chitradurga.

Synchrotron is an electron accelerator which produces high intensity light to study the structure of the atomsin matter.It is a powerful tool that enables scientists and engineers to probe the fundamental nature of matter.

The IISc is said to focus on research works in the core sectors such as renewable energy, space science, aerospace, water resource technology, ecology and environment. The development centre is expected to provide job opportunities for research students of various departments.

The facility at Chitradurga is expected to be similar to the facility in Geneva. Also coming up in the district is the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) where research students of atomic science will get opportunities to work. The facility will be setup in the 1,800 acres of land given by the government.

I felt very odd that why the gas line has to come from kochin to bangalore. that to a pipeline run to mangalore. when mangalore has a Big port and already pipeline exist between mangalore- hassan ( need to only extend).
Joly well you can get the gad directly there and then distribute.

Mangalore is a big petrolium hub also with MRPL and MSEZ presense

I agree with u in bangalore-guntakal-wadi line that goes parallel to karnataka border.. we should use bangalore-hubli-pune line for west india destinations if not north india destinations..

but in south border of karnataka it is forests and terrains that are making things difficult. that is wrt line bangalore-salem-coimbatore-cochin line, which is perfectly ok. and that gas pipeline through coimbatore

Stepping on the gas

KOCHI: A revolutionary change will be witnessed in Kochi city with the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulation Board (PNGRB) giving priority to the first phase of the City Gas Distribution (CGD) project which will be implemented in 2013.

Speaking at a function organised by the Kerala State Industries Development Corporation (KSIDC) on tapping the possibilities of developing natural gas infrastructure to fuel economic growth in the state, L Mansingh, chairman, PNGRB India, said that by 2013 residential buildings will be provided with piped cooking gas.

Apart from this, vehicles plying in Kochi will also be using gas as it will be available at a cheaper cost than the fuel used now.

He urged the government to make it mandatory for all commercial vehicles to use compressed natural gas (CNG) and identify the geographical areas for CGD network.

Initially, it will be served to housing colonies and apartment buildings. The company is entrusted with the task of laying 1,114-km pipeline from Kochi to Mangalore and Bangalore via Kanjikode which will facilitate the distribution of piped gas in the city.

Kochi city will also be the first green city in South India when greener and cleaner technology is used as an alternative to the existing fuel which is causing damage to the environment.

Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, is a person behind such a wonderful thought and the Tech city Bangalore will house the university, the city where several IT engineers work for late hours and leading a stressful life. The university will be about five kilometres away from the city on the road to Mysore.

Laughter Therapy



“If all goes well, then by April-May 2011, I will start my first certified Laughter Yoga teacher training in the university complex,” Madan Kataria told reporters. The University will be called Laughter Yoga University.

Kataria has earned a name by popularising ‘Laughter Yoga’ therapy that combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing or ‘pranayama’. “The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits,” he said.

“It is a huge project. In the first phase, we will have an auditorium for conferences and conventions, training rooms, stay facility for 200 people, library, dining hall, meditation rooms, administrative block and staff residence,” he added.

As per the information gathered from sources close to the development, the project may take 18 months to two years for completion. However, the training programmes will be started by next three months and further construction will go on.

Really!! It would be delight to learn how to be happy rather to mug up the same routine course books!! Just wait and watch what is in store for students in the University for Greater Benefits of mind and body!!.

True..the rail infrastructure of KA is poor compared to the neighbouring states. The onus is only on the successive people representatives. I think with an independent zone (SWR) for the state, things should improve.

The only fully doubled & electrified section is Bangalore-Bangarapet-Kuppam section which leads to TN & Kerala. I think the track km within KA would be around 100km.

I had got some info regarding railway electrification sometime back. As per that;

KA: 4.2 %
AP: 46.5%
TN: 28.4%
MH 47.3%
KL: 51.4%.

Kerala would be having close to 100% electrification soon. The Shornur-Mangalore section in Malabar has already been taken up for electrification. I think only lines left would be the Kollam-Punalur-Shencottah/TN border line as well as Pallakad-Pollachi(TN). Same with doubling also, with the main trunk lines doubled or being doubled.

House owners rejoice as rental rates rise

Quote:
Metro Work In CBD Areas Slashes Prices,Residential Units In IT Areas Are Up By 18-20 %

Shilpa Phadnis | TNN

Bangalore: Sunita Koppar,an IT professional with Oracle,never expected her flat owners random talk on inflation would come with a rider.He dropped a hint on passing on any price hike to her.His yardstick: anything from onions to foodgrains going through the roof.This year,he raised the rent by 20%.But that didnt quite match the hullabaloo created on commodity inflation.
He sprung another surprise one more round of substantial hike when the agreement comes up for renewal.The hike in rent has been significant in the past one year.But I will hang on till we move in to our new apartment, she said.
As IT/ITeS firms are back on the growth track,companies are going fullthrottle on their hiring plans.This has attracted a lot of talent from outside Bangalore,hence a pent-up demand for apartments around the IT hub.Rentals have gone up by 15-20 % at Marathalli,Sarjapur,Whitefield and Outer Ring Road compared to last year.Rentals in pockets of North Bangalore have also moved up, said Sunil Simon,proprietor of property consultancy firm Aaron Associates.
Post-slowdown,the market witnessed a correction in residential space.The recovery was felt in luxury and mid-sized apartments,lending itself to a moderate increase in re n t a l s.Rentals in h i g h - e n d apartments like Epsilon,Palm Meadows,Prestige Bougainvilla and others have seen a revision.Newer developments,especially gated communities,have witnessed an increase in capital values.Thats also reflecting in the rentals, said Ram Chandnani,deputy managing director,South India,real estate consultancy CB Richard Ellis.
The citys rental graph has moved up in traditional IT hubs like South and East Bangalore too.Residential layouts in Koramangala,Hosur Road,Bannerghatta Road,Sarjapur Road,Jayanagar,J P Nagar and Banashankari have witnessed 10 to 15% jump.A similar trend is seen in pockets of East Bangalore,including parts of Indiranagar,Airport Road,Fraser Town,Cooke Town,Lingarajapuram,Marathalli,HRBR Layout,Banaswadi,Old Madras Road,K R Puram,Brookefields,Hoodi and Whitefield.
But the reverse happened in 2009.IT firms froze recruitment plans.As a result,the job market was shaky and spending power shrank.Oversupply in Sarjapur,Outer Ring Road,Whitefield and Marathalli forced apartment owners to press the panic button.They offered steep discount on rentals to combat weak consumer sentiments.Prices during the slowdown tanked by as much as 35%,said real estate brokers.Apartment owners in Palm Retreat or Brigade Metropolis expected 6 to 7% return on investments as they had purchased flats at a premium.They only got 3% return then.But things are looking better now, added Chandnani.

INFRASTRUCTURE WOES

On the flip side,Metro rail work and congestion in the central business district of MG Road,Richmond Road,Residency Road and Lavelle Road,to name some areas,has pushed down rentals by 10-15 %.Villas demanding rentals close to Rs 1.5-2 lakh have dropped by 20% compared to a year before, said regional director (south) of Knight Frank India,Naresh Dandapat.



A Knight Frank research estimates that the city will witness a residential supply of 38,000,translating to 72 million sqft between 2009 and 2011.Around 53% of this supply will be 3-BHK apartments and 30% will constitute 2-BHK ones.

Not true to the fullest. KaSRTC rose during the recent days. I still remember the red dabbas of KaSRTC till the 1990s. And you cannot compare rail traffic with road. Rail traffic is very much important for the 'equitable' development of all places in a state, also it holds an important role in freight movement also, including oil and gas.

KaSRTC's turnaround should be a model for other public transport corporations. They have infused modern management and best practices which others should emulate.

there is no need for government to run such public transportations, esp. long distances. i don't see any merit for government to run such services even for poor.

and it's only a matter time before any such government run organizations become poorly managed. it's impossible for them to compete with private sector in long term.

Even in Tamilnadu trains running towards Bangalore and Kerala are electrified the trunk route from chennai to south was not even broad guage until late 2000's and is still single strack.

BBMP pushes for revising city plan
TNN, Dec 29, 2010, 05.39am IST
Quote:
BANGALORE: With ground reality not tallying with the blueprint, the city corporation has decided to do the sensible thing and go in for a 'serious' revision of the existing Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP). This process is expected to unfold in 2011.

Confirming this to TOI, H Ravindra, chairman of the corporation's major works committee, said that the revision will be based on the Revised Master Plan (RMP) 2015 that was approved by the government in 2007 when there was no elected council in place. Also, a few proposals from the CDP like the road in the GKVK campus met with stiff public opposition and now lie abandoned.

"We definitely need a revision considering the rapid expansion of city limits since then. All 216 roads now earmarked for widening were jointly identified by BBMP and BDA five years back, based on this CDP. But now, executing the works on ground has become a problem,'' he explained.

In the last few months, the city has seen a spate of protests over decisions to widen roads and the consequent transferable development rights (TDRs) which are meant to be the compensation for losing property for road-widening. Lack of a liquid market for TDRs has been a big grouse. Many home owners, in fact, don't want TDRs at all, preferring to keep their property intact.

But, can the BBMP now revise a masterplan that was formulated by Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) which is the planning authority for the city? "Definitely we can initiate the revision process as we have been facing a problem. There's no rule that says the BBMP cannot participate in CDP. We will be approaching the urban development department (UDD) shortly. BDA is also part of UDD,'' Ravindra added.

The palike also hopes to make the road-widening exercise and TDR policy workable through this revision. According to urban experts, a major flaw in existing RMP has to do with the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) that needs to be modified for sale of TDRs to be attractive.

BBMP engineer-in-chief A K Gopalaswamy also admitted that the corporation was not being involved in the revised masterplan 2015 though it has to execute some projects under it like the road through GKVK campus."

Though major works standing committee has stopped the work in GKVK campus, the final authority rests with the commissioner to take a call on the project. Again, it goes back to the CDP,'' he explained.
