that is ofcourse good . If it is just stick in the city limit,then it is OK. Kasargod is not an exception. I think govt. should have to make licensing for Highrise buildings only in Districts- HQ. Kasargod has a good potential to grow. with the proximity of Manglore.

Concrete jungles coming in some remote and environmentally sensitive areas are not so impressive. I feel bad to see a concrete monster popping out from the dense forests of Thekkady or Wayanad.

Yes. Those resorts deserve to be pulled down, which were constructed by destroying the hills, obstructing the flow of rivers etc. It's like 'Killing the goose which lays golden egg'.

We have a model in our own state -Kumarakom. It has been declared as a special Tourism Zone (STZ) and the heights of resorts are limited to maximum 3 floors.

Toursists would like to visit only those places which provide a calm and serene environment. They visit here to escape from the madness of the cities.

I don't think there is a problem in having multi-storied building in Uppala. It is a small town in the national highway but it is no way a forest or wetland. I mean there won't be any ecological problem. In fact ecological problem will be lesser than apartments concentrating inside a city. Flats will reduce land usage and provide more security. The case of high rises coming in forest areas like Thekkady is different. Uppala can be a satellite town for Mangalore. Also it will be better if an urban belt is developed between Mangalore and Kasargod.

As the way Tamil Nadu developing Hosur as Banglore's Satellite City. We can promote Uppala for Manglore(ofcourse in a lesser extent considering the differance of Banglore & Manglore) But still Manglore is one of the fastest growing cities of India.

But if you compare like that Kasargod itself can become a satellite town of Mangalore. Mangalore being a fast growing city and kasargod a small town near to it. Kasargod directly depends on mangalore for every thing. Uppala is very small to become something like Hosur. Kasargod is a municipal town like Hosur. It is well connected with Mangalore and the NH is also in better shape. Where as NH-17 south to Kasargod is in poor shape like we see in other places in Kerala.

Uppala is 25km south of Mangalore and 25km north of Kasaragod on NH17. To get to Mangalore by bus about 40 min. Uppala has a Rly station as well about 30 minutes to Mangalore. It is cheaper to rent a property in Uppala and commute to work in Mangalore . Again south of Mangalore is densely populated till Thalapady, the border. After that it is sparsely populated south bound along the NH. Hence Uppala fits the bill road and rail connectivity for commuting to Mangalore.

I can't see Kasaragod itself becoming a satellite town for Mangalore in the next decade. At present there are a lot of people commuting from Kasaragod to Mangalore for work but the reason behind that is they are natives of Kasaragod. To be called a real satellite town of Mangalore, we need to see more non natives of Mangalore choosing Kasaragod over other towns and commuting.

Three more resorts to come up in Bekal

Quote:


'Bekal Tourism Development Project has been started with the aim of developing the infrastructure in the places like Bekal, which has tourism potential,' said Kerala Home and Tourism Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan inaugurating the Bekal Shuddha Jala Project at Bangad in Kasargod on Saturday.

He said that with the development of tourism, hundreds of local people will get employment. He pointed that a resort has been completed in Bekal and three more will be completed by this year end. He informed that Tourism Development Board has been making profit for the last four years, which is a positive sign.

Irrigation Minister N K Premchandran informed that within a year as many as five drinking water projects will be started at Yenmakaje, West Yeleri, Vorkady, Koipady and Balal. As many as 100 drinking water projects will be implemented this year with aid from Japan Bank. MP P Karunakaran, MLAs K V Kunhiraman, C H Kunhabbu, ZP Vice-President Geetha Krishnana and others were present.

A commendable work of National Highway Department

Quote:
Kumble, April 27: Every year Kasargod-Mangalore NH used to remain packed with craters during rainy season and was good only during summer. It used to be a hellish experience to commute in NH during rainy season. The on duty policemen were struggling to clear the jammed road.

Every year PWD starts patch work at the beginning of rainy season and fill the craters with stones. During last rainy season buses were not reaching Kasargod in 2 hours also and there are many instances where buses used to cut short the trip in the midway due to time shortage.

But this year the department has done a commendable job. PWD had started the work before March and completed it within a short duration. Now the rubberized national highway is shining. Vehicles are moving without any hurdles. The buses which require 1.15 hour to commute 50km from Mangalore to Kasargod are reaching Kasargod within 1 hour.

The work was done using modern techniques. Human power is replaced by machines. The rubberized road has given a speed to vehicles. People have to wait and see whether the same road give a break to the vehicles during rainy season.

During rainy season people will come to know about the quality of work done and raw materials used. But, presently people opine that the quality of work is good.

Cyber park to come up in Kasaragod

Cyber park to come up in Kasaragod



Special Correspondent







Thiruvananthapuram: Decks have been cleared for the information technology sector to strike roots in the northernmost district of Kerala. Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan laid the foundation stone for a cyber park at Cheemeni in Kasaragod on Friday.

The new campus will be the first spoke of Cyber Park, Kozhikode, which was recently established to act as the hub for development of the IT/ITeS sector in the northern region. It will be developed on 40 hectares of land, of which 10 hectares will be developed initially as an IT/ITES-specific special economic zone.

The first building to come up here will cover 1.5-lakh sq.ft. and will generate employment for over 2,000 professionals. The second spoke of Cyber Park, Kozhikode, is scheduled to come up in Kannur.

“With Cyber Park, Kasaragod, the IT sector in Kerala can now tap into the large pool of locally available skilled resources and reputed educational institutions not just in North Malabar but also from Dakshina Kannada in Karnataka. It has the potential to provide employment opportunities on a large scale and contribute to the economic development of the State, especially the Malabar region,” said Dr. Ajay Kumar, Principal Secretary, IT.

State of the art

Binu Pazhoor, CEO, Cyber Park, Kozhikode, said: “Our objective is to set up a state-of-the-art facility in Kasaragod equivalent to any IT park in the world. The Cyber Park campus here will have self-contained facilities required for modern day living, eco-friendly buildings with energy efficient layouts and interiors, fully furnished incubators to support start-up SME initiatives, a variety of recreation facilities and adequate eco parks, banks, ATMs, food courts, waste collection and disposal systems, emergency management systems, reprography centres, rainwater harvesting, and 100 per cent back up for electricity.”

Under the hub-and-spoke model of development adopted by Kerala, Technopark-Thiruvananthapuram, Infopark-Kochi and Cyber Park-Kozhikode will act as the hubs, while satellite centres are being developed in Kollam, Ambalappuzha, Cherthala, Thrissur, Kannur and Kasaragod.

Kasargod begins to look beyond the Gulf

KASARGOD: Sunday night is hardly sleepy in Kasargod town. The parking lot of Lums, a high-end restaurant near the old bus stand, is full of Lexus SUVs, Toyota Camrys and other luxury cars, each with a fancy registration number. Despite the light rain and the air of gloom that pervades the town, which has lost a number of citizens in the air crash in Mangalore, the mood inside the restaurant is upbeat. A group of burqa-clad women and children try to catch the attention of the busy staff, a family is busy tucking into food and waiters scurry around taking orders in Malayalam, Tulu, English, Kannada and Hindi.

"This town is changing. There is a lot of activity here now," says K M Ahammed, editor of the evening daily Utharadesham for the past five decades. "The entire economy of Kasargod is based on the money from the Gulf, and this money is driving change in the town," he says. More than 2.5 lakh people from Kasaragod are working in the Gulf.

Kasargod, located at the northern tip of Kerala, with the Western Ghats to the east and the Arabian Sea to the west, often falls outside the radar of the Kerala government, and is, consequently, one of the most backward districts in the state. Mangalore is closer, both emotionally and geographically, to the people of Kasargod than Kannur. And naturally, there is a crossover of culture and trade. "However, if agriculturists sell their produce in Mangalore, it is considered smuggling. So most of us have given up farming and our children have no option but to leave India and work in the Gulf," says Salim Siddique, an arecanut farmer in Udhuma.

Ahammed says that though development projects were not undertaken, money was never a problem for Kasargod. "The money was always concentrated in the hands of a few and was never channelled into overall social development," says Ahammed, whose newspaper campaigned for the formation of the district in the early 80s. This is set to change with a number of development schemes and projects planned for the district that celebrated its 26th birthday on May 24. "Upcoming industrial projects will create a lot of employment opportunities. The districts growing tourism segment is also expected to generate jobs," says district collector Anand Singh.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited is to commission a unit in Kinfra Park at Seethankuzhi, an IT park is to come up at Cheemeni, and a Central University is to start operations soon.

With Bekal Fort gaining popularity among foreign and domestic tourists, the district tourism promotion council has set up a Bekal Resorts Development Corporation. Two five-star resorts are already up and running at Bekal and three more are under construction. Lack of facilities for higher education has been another disadvantage. "When the Central University comes up, this will change. There are many investors showing interest in starting educational institutions. As education improves, so will employability," says Singh.

Residents hope these projects will bring about much-needed change. "More than three-fourths of Gulf migrants from Kasargod are engaged in menial jobs. We hope the new projects will create better opportunities for the people," says Ahammed.

Political affiliations have also affected development work. Though the district is known to lean towards CPM, the Kasargod municipality has been a bastion of Indian Union Muslim League (IUML). BJP also has a strong presence in select areas.

"The strength of political parties changes from one village to the next. When the parties compete with one another for projects, it puts a spoke in the wheel of development," observes Abdul Rahman, district information officer. Standing together has always benefited this town. "We were united when we fought for a separate district 26 years ago. We worked together to save lives during the air crash two days ago," says Ahammed. If the residents stand together for the cause of development, Kasargod could soon be one of the hottest industrial destinations in Kerala.
