Most smart cities to come up in UP, TN and Maharashtra

Quote:
Uttar Pradesh will get the highest number of smart cities, followed by Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra, in line with a government-approved formula that gives equal weight to population and the number of "statutory towns" in each state.

UP will be eligible to "build" 13 smart cities — which it can do either by retrofitting parts of an existing town (minimum 500 acres), redeveloping some of them by pulling down buildings (spread over at least 50 acres) or setting up greenfield projects (spread over at least 250 acres). According to the proposal cleared by the Cabinet, TN will get 12 smart cities and Maharashtra, 10.
TOI

Quote:
The 'Smart City Challenge Competition' will be carried out by Bloomberg Philanthropes, which has been involved in conducting similar competitions in various countries.

According to the plan, 20 cities will be selected this year, followed by 40 each in the next two years.

"Smart City aspirants will be selected through the competition which intends to link financing with their ability to achieve the mission objectives," the official said.

"The cities will be given scores based on urban reforms that they have carried out, their impact and what they propose to do in four key areas - Swachh Bharat (sanitation), Make in India (ease of doing business), good governance (modern accounting system, rationalisation of property taxes) and e-governance," he added.

Medical College

Guys, This was posted on Sep 27, 2012.
What is the status now?
Please find and tell.

thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-tamilnadu/medical-college-hospital-coming-up-in-madurai/article3941043.ece[/url]

A group of 10 Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) based in the US and Canada have come together to start a 700-bed hospital cum medical college in Madurai.

Mandira Institute of Medical Sciences, which is being developed as a corporate entity, is coming up on Madurai-Rajapalayam Road near Thirumangalam at an investment of Rs.300 crores routed through Mandira Healthcare Infrastructure, a company promoted by NRI doctors.

The first phase of the project which will have 300-bed multi-speciality hospital will begin functioning in November 2013.

Thirty acres of land was acquired for the medical college hospital and construction would commence shortly.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference here on Wednesday, P.Madhu, Project Director, Mandira Institute of Medical Sciences, who is now based in the US and had been trained at the Harvard Medical School, said that the NRI doctors had chosen Madurai after a detailed ‘needs assessment’ and market survey.

“There is an uneven distribution of medical colleges and corporate hospitals in the State. Since Madurai caters to the healthcare needs of people in southern districts, we chose to come here and start our hospital in this medically underserved region,” he said.

The NRI promoters had registered their company in India as per procedural requirements and the proposed medical college will have digital technology/ virtual dissection methodology for students which would come through collaboration with US-based company.

According to Dr.Madhu, several NRIs had shown keenness to return to India and this would bring professional management and medical competence for Mandira Institute of Medical Sciences.

“We will have top class paediatrics, gynaecology, general surgery, cardiology, neurology, urology and various other specialities. Once the hospital is ready at the end of next year, we will go for approvals from the Medical Council of India for the medical college which will have an annual intake of 150 students. The medical college is expected to begin from academic session in August 2014,” he added.

Assuring that Mandira management will bear in mind the people’s affordability factor, Dr.Madhu said that expert doctors in and around Madurai would be roped in. “We will invest Rs.300 crore totally in phases and the entire 700-bed project would be completed in five years. To start with, our hospital will provide direct employment to 500 persons and indirect employment to 5,000 people. There will be a huge spin-off effect in this region,” he said.

Seven NRI doctors who belong to Tamil Nadu are planning to move down to Madurai once the hospital is ready and a few more too may join later. The hospital has an office at the construction site near Thirumangalam while the administrative office is in the city.

Even a 9 hole Golf Course need huge land. 18 hole Gold course will need much more. Apart from the same, maintenance of Golf course is a very costly affair. You need to maintain the Grass. While I would love to have a Golf Course in Madurai, in practical terms it is very difficult to imagine also.

MM ,AU -MDU is one among the many paper projects that has been sanctioned for MDU.

Except some minister inspection for the proposed one, I haven't seen anything in newspapers.

Friends can update as well.

MADURAI: Tamil Nadu higher education minister P Palaniappan inspected construction of buildings for Anna University's Madurai regional centre on Tuesday. He ordered the officials to expedite the construction works.

It has been two months since the construction works began at Thanakkankulam near Thiruparankundram. Officials said the work for the Rs 40-crore campus was expected to be completed in 15 months.

Site for setting up Agri Marketing Centre selected

A 12-acre site has been approved for establishing a Rs 30 crore Agricultural Marketing centre at Vinayakapuram near here.

Agricultural Department officials, including Director Rajendran, today selected the site.

Officials said the centre would be located in the sprawling Water Management Training Institute complex at Vinayakapuram on the Highway between Madurai and Tiruchirappalli.

The centre would come up at a cost of Rs 30 crore.

The farmers could market their produce including vegetables, fruits, flowers and foodgrains for selling at the centre. An agricultural godown would also come at a cost of Rs three crore in the site.

The centre would benefit people of South Tamil Nadu.
