Rs.10 bn investment expected from Kerala diaspora meet
Kochi, Dec 24 (IANS) The two-day diaspora meet “Ente Naadu”, billed as a platform for the Kerala diaspora to invest in tourism projects in the state, concluded here Wednesday with an investment of over Rs.10 billion expected to take place in the coming years, a minister said.Over 500 non-resident Keralites (NRKs) from 42 countries took part in the two-day event.

State Minister for Tourism Kodiyeri Balakrishnan told IANS that the response was fantastic and the delegates were delighted to look into various projects showcased at the meet.

“The two-day meet has set the ball rolling. Through this meeting, prospective investors had a feel of the various projects that were showcased. We expect a total investment of more than Rs.1,000 crores (Rs.10 billion) to take place in the coming years through the various projects,” said Balakrishnan.

The types of projects included small accommodations, resorts, Ayurveda centres to health services, fast food, souvenirs, aero sports and a wax museum.

The project ideas from architects in Kerala included a floating market in Alappuzha, fashion street in Kannur, a drive-in restaurant in Munnar, and a water ski park in Thrissur.

But Balakrishnan added that the programme “Bring a friend to Kerala in 2009″ would be the next major campaign point for Kerala tourism.

“We will hold road shows to this effect in various countries and the delegates who came here will act as the brand ambassadors for Kerala tourism. We will prepare an action plan to this effect and would conduct the shows in the next three to four months,” said Balakrishnan.

“This novel idea of involving the NRKs has received a huge thumbs up from the industry. It is a great idea to involve NRKs and one which has the potential to accelerate tourism growth in the state,” said Kerala Travel Mart president E.M. Najeeb.

Another leading tourism honcho, Jose Dominic of C.G.H. Earth, said that with the global economic crisis NRKs could provide much needed equity to existing projects while taking advantage of lower prices.

“Ente Naadu” was a Kerala initiative organised by the tourism department in association with the industries department and managed by Tourist Resorts Kerala Ltd.

Highways to be widened in Kerala

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: National highways in Kerala stretching from the state capital Thiruvananthapuram to the northern city of Kannur will be developed for four-lane traffic within four years, officials said here yesterday.

In the second phase, the 169km stretch of NH 47 would be developed for four-lane traffic from Cherthala to Thiruvan-anthapuram at a cost of Rs28bn.
The Kannur-Kozhikode stretch is expected to cost Rs8.34bn and the Kozhikode-Kuttippuram stretch Rs8.21bn.
The entire project is expected to be cleared before general elections.

Indian Navy's new academy set to open in Kerala, finally
Ezhimala (Kerala) (IANS): Almost 22 years after its foundation stone was laid, the Indian Naval Academy, Ezhimala, on this promontory overlooking the Arabian Sea, is ready for inauguration.

Meanwhile, the cost of setting up the academy at this historic spot in Kerala's Kannur district has gone up from Rs.1.66 billion ($35 million) to Rs.7.21 billion ($150 million).

The academy will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Jan 8. Defence Minister A.K. Antony - who had watched then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi lay the foundation stone on Jan 17, 1987 - will be present.

"The project was initially envisaged to cost Rs.166 crore (Rs.1.66 billion). After 22 years the project when completed would cost Rs.721 crore (Rs.7.21 billion)," Antony said last week.

About Rs.500 million were spent on assuring proper water supply in the academy, developing roads and other infrastructural facilities.

Indian Naval Academy, Ezhimala, will conduct B.Tech courses for 750 cadets and commissioned officers from the academic session commencing next year. The engineering programmes have been drawn up by the Indian Navy in conjunction with Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

Officers from other nations will also be eligible to attend the programmes.

The academy is being set up so that all officers joining the Indian Navy pass through it and the entire officer cadre is initiated into naval life from a common background.

It will be run by Kochi-based Southern Naval Command headed by Rear Admiral M.P. Muraleedharan.

The academy, spread over nearly 1,000 acres, is situated on a promontory that was the capital of the ancient Mooshika kings. It was a flourishing sea port and centre of trade in ancient Kerala and one of the major battle fields during Chola-Chera war in 11th century AD. It is believed that Lord Buddha visited Ezhimala.

PM to commission Ezhimala Naval Academy on Jan 8
Ezhimala Naval Academy, a project to conduct a host of training courses including research, will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on January 8, Navy chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta said on Friday.

"After deciding to set up a full-fledged naval academy at this site, we have come to a stage wherein we are ready to commence training at the academy and the Prime Minister will dedicate the academy to the nation on January 8," he told a press conference here.

The over Rs 720 crore project, billed as Asia's largest is capable of accommodating 750 personnel and about 500 support staff to assist the day-to-day activities of academy.

Flanked by the Arabian Sea, picturesque hills and inland waters, the Academy spread over a 2,452 acres, will be the only centre in India imparting four-year B Tech courses in Electronics and Communications, and Mechanical Engineering for all the newly inducted trainee officers.

The syllabi and the curricula have been drafted keeping in mind the current technical advancements and the skill tests that will be required in handling the future acquisition of the Indian Navy, he said.

"The academy would give a lot more thrust on intellectual works and will have a unique laboratory and plans to allow others to do research works here," Admiral Mehta said.

The ongoing works of the project are scheduled to be completed by April end and the full-fledged courses will start in June next, he said.

The entire training sessions, currently being held at Goa's 'INS Mandovi', would be subsequently shifted to the 'INS Zamorin' at Ezhimala, which is located in Kerala's Kannur district.

New projects from Skyline builders

Kochi based Skyline builders will launch 3 new residential projets this year - Onix @ Calicut, Augusta @ Thiruvalla and High-Point @ Kottayam.

Quote:
No major drop in building prices

KOCHI: The economic slowdown has had some impact on the construction industry, but the prices in the building sector would not see much drop due to rising labour costs and high land prices in Kerala, said Abdul Azeez, director of Skyline. Talking to reporters here, he said his group would get into the budget home segment in a major way. He claimed that Skyline has created history by delivering 22 projects during 2008. These are located at various sites, consisting of 1,260 apartments, covering about 2 million sq. ft.

The group plans to deliver another nine projects during 2009. Three new residential projects will be launched in Kozhikode, Kottayam and Tiruvalla.

Kerala plans to set up IT parks in all districts

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, INDIA: The government of Kerala, as part of its IT expansion plan, has kicked off efforts to set up IT parks in every district of Kerala.

As an initial step towards this goal, the state government today handed over the land for setting up an IT park in Kollam to Ajaykumar, Secretary, IT, in the presence of the District Collector A Shahjahan and officials of Technopark and Revenue Department in Kollam.

The official launch of the development activities of Kollam Technopark will be done by Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan on February 10 at Kundara.

The 40-acre campus will have an investment of over Rs 800 crore and will provide direct employment opportunities for 20,000 IT/ITeS professionals.

This is the first district level IT Park that is being launched by the Kerala government as part of the new IT Policy.

Speaking at the function after receiving the land for setting up Technopark Kollam, Minister for Education M A Baby said, "The Technopark at Thiruvananthapuram, for which the foundation stone was laid by the late E K Nayanar, has become a symbol of pride for the State and people of Kerala and the government."

Today, as many as 150 nationally and internationally reputed companies operate out of the Thiruvananthapuram Technopark.

"The Thiruvananthapuram Technopark is our inspiration to set up similar parks in every district and the dream is coming to realization with this ceremony," said Ajaykumar.

"Kollam in its own right is a developed district with the growing cashew industry, excellent educational institutions and now with the setting up of Technopark, we hope to see Kollam flourish and develop giving as a great IT hub providing better employment and a quality life to all professionals who choose to work from Kollam in future and make this place their home."

Asia’s biggest naval academy to be commissioned on 8 Jan
Press Trust of India
Kannur, Jan 6: The Indian Navy's Ezhimala naval academy, regarded as the biggest officers' training institution in Asia, would be dedicated to the nation by Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on 8 January.
The over Rs 720 crore world class project in Kerala's north Malabar coastline is unique in many ways, surrounded as it is by a picturesque seven kilometres stretch of beach and by seven hills.
The institution is now all set to commence various basic training programmes, including four-year B.Tech in Electronics and Communications, and Mechanical Engineering in June for all newly inducted trainee officers.
The courses, recognised by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) have been structured with the help of Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University.
Many friendly foreign naval powers including Japan and Korea have evinced interest to join the training programmes at Ezhimala. The Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sureesh Mehta had recently said that the Navy would accommodate foreign cadets within four years when things get stabilise in the new Academy.
The academic curriculum is tailored to keep pace with the technological advancement. The academy will also condition the young aspirants with mental and physical attributes enabling them to exercise self-discipline, perform efficiently under stress, think and react quickly and develop leadership qualities.
“The opening of this world-class academy would be a major landmark in India's naval history as well as the people of Kerala,” Southern Naval Command Vice Admiral Sunil K Damle, who oversees the project implementation, said.
“Such a centre of academic excellence is sure to become the envy of Asia and source of immense pride for the State providing tremendous employment opportunities for the local population,” Vice Admiral Damle said.
Set up at the foot of seven hills of which 260 metre high Mount Dilli is the tallest, the sprawling academy is spread over an area of 2,452 acres with perimeter of 22 km of which seven km stretch is beach.
The serene Kavvayi backwaters forms part of the academy which also has large forest area with a variety of flora and fauna.
Ezhimala, the place where the academy is located, derived its name from the Malayalam word Ezhu Mala which means seven hills.
The Union government approved the Navy's proposal to locate the academy at Ezhimala in 1982 following which Kerala came forward to provide the proposed 2,500 acres land and basic infrastructure for area development free of cost.

Gentlemen, please post only non-city specific news here and also avoid repeating the same item again and again. If a news item mentions a city or the subject of the item is located close to a city with an existing thread, request everyone to post it there.

This thread was intended for general infrastructure projects like highways and projects in cities and towns without their own threads. Let's not clutter it up. Thanks in advance.

Largest naval academy in Asia is coming in India, that too in Kerala. When the final phase is completed it will be the largest in the world!! Is that a news specific to any particular city? I believe that at least all Keralalites should read about it. If it is posted under Kannur thread then only people interested in Kannur will read it. Its not about any flat or shopping mall which you can find every where. I have seen many paper projects being discussed for ages in different threads under different forums. Why can't you tolerate 2-3 posts about Ezhimala Naval academy which going to be inaugurated right tomorrow? Its not the same post but only the title is similar. At least read it once carefully.

FOOD PROCESSING

FOOD PROCESSING
Kerala plans to make an impact in its food processing sector

Wednesday, January 07, 2009, 16:00 Hrs [IST]
By FnB News Staff | Mumbai

The Kerala Industries Department has initiated measures to provide the state’s food processing industry with a much needed leg up. E Karim, Industries Minister, Kerala has said that the state was set for a major leap in the food processing space. In line with these plans, the department inaugurated its latest food processing incubation centre at the Kerala Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation's (Kinfra) food processing park at Kakkancherry near the University of Calicut.

According to a report in the Business Standard, K N Srikumar, Senior Media Advisor, Kinfra, said that the incubation centre was a product development unit that will be utilised to test ideas and products of investors and entrepreneurs. Investors will be allowed to test-market their products, provide the incubation centre with feedback for improvement and thus, standardise these products. When the products are standardised, investors will be able to set up their own units, he said.

As part of the new incubation unit at Kakkancherry, a water supply scheme that will ensure purified water at the park (from the Chaliyar river) has gone on stream, as well.

Satyam employees, clients calling Kerala IT companies

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: It is advantage time for IT companies in Kerala. With Satyam under a cloud, the software companies in the state are busy trying to win over clients of the tainted IT bellwether even as they are flooded with job applications from Satyam employees.

A few large IT companies in the state either work with Satyam or are competitors.

The head of a leading IT company said on the condition of anonymity, that across the IT industry efforts to take over Satyam's clients in India or abroad has begun and they were also at it.

"We are working aggressively in India and abroad for this," the IT firm chief said.

Meanwhile, efforts to reassure nervous clients have also begun.

V.K. Mathews, chief of IBS Software Services - one of the biggest IT companies in the state – said they have started reaching out to clients to explain their position as part of confidence building measures in the wake of what happened at Satyam.

Buddy, we can all take subjective calls about what news is to be posted where. It is not just people who are from Kannur who go through the Kannur thread. This thread was meant for general development news which could not be fitted into any particular thread like a highway project spanning 2 or 3 districts. If one sees this as a "pan-Kerala" announcement thread, it would be filled up in no time with repetitions from the other threads. Today there is an Ezhimala, tomorrow there will be a Vallarpadam and then a Technocity. Thereafter it will be pure chaos here.

Let's not get to that and keep this thread for what it was originally meant for. Your enthusiasm is understandable but don't get overboard.
