Bangalore to get Rs 100 crore expo centre

NEWDELHI: To showcase India's robust economic growth and boost its business globally, the International Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) is set to expand the exhibition and convention centres across the country including the facilities in Bangalore and Chennai.

Subas Pani, chairman and managing director of ITPO, that conducts the India International Trade Fair, said this on the sidelines of a press conference to announce the 30th edition of the India International Trade Fair to be inaugurated by Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma on November 14.

Pani said the ITPO is looking at developing an expo centre in Bangalore at a cost of Rs100 crore. Also, it has embarked on ambitious expansion plans of transforming Chennai Trade Centre, Nandambakkam into the largest expo centre in South East Asia at a cost of Rs100 crore.

Asked about the Bangalore centre, Pani said ITPO has shortlisted two architectural firms. "We would freeze the concept plan about the convention centre with a capacity of 5,000 people soon. We also have plans for an additional exhibition hall of about 5,000 square metres there."

"At the Chennai convention centre, we have one multipurpose hall and two additional halls. We will be adding at least two more big halls. We are planning to add about 10,000 square metres. Our effort is to double the exhibition area as well. We are getting an additional 10 acres of land from the Tamil Nadu government," Pani told Express.

Pani said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had pledged to expand the Chennai convention centre in the last state budget. "There is more land adjacent to the Chennai convention centre held by the Government of India. If we can pursue it, we can achieve our long time objective of the largest trade exhibition and convention centre in South East Asia. We are working towards that. We are finalising the masterplan in a couple of months. We expect the work to be completed in less than two years time," ITPO chief said.

ITPO is also examining the proposals of state government like Orissa and Maharashtra for creating similar infrastructure. Asked about the declining participation of foreign participation in the India International Trade Fair during the last few years, Pani attributed it to the impact of global financial crisis. "Many countries are yet to emerge out of the global crisis. But the area allocated for foreign participation has been fully utilised," Pani said, adding that 7000 exhibitors from abroad, including new countries Japan and Uganda will take part in the trade fair.

However out of the 23 participating countries, no country has been declared a partner country this year. Estimating one million footfalls, Pani said Maharashtra is the partner state, while Rajasthan and Chattisgarh get status of focus states at the fair this year.

Bangalore city in growth mode
Submitted by admin on October 14, 2010 – 12:05 pm

Bangalore
Quote:
The city has regained its perch as a preferred destination for office and retail space, according to a Cushman & Wakefield report. Bangalore is expected to see highest cumulative demand of 42.1 million sft during 2010-14, followed by Mumbai at 37.5 million sft and NCR at 32 million sft, said the India Real Estate Investment report 2010 titled, ‘Riding the Wave-Re-emergence of Indian Realty Sector’ released on Wednesday. It also said, with the IT/IteS sector back on track, the city will see a surge in office space.

“Bangalore continues to be foremost in the office real estate sector and hold the largest share of the demand pie. It will be the only city where the demand would exceed the supply over the next five years. This is essentially because requirements of IT companies are much larger,’’ said Cushman & Wakefield India’s executive director (investment services) Manish Aggarwal.

The pan India office space demand in the period under review is estimated to be 240 million sft of which the top three cities (Bengaluru, NCR and Mumbai) comprise 46% of the total demand. The demand for retail sector is also expected to be the highest in Bangalore with approximately 7.6 million sft. However, the city ranks third in the hospitality sector and demand for room-nights is expected to be 9.8 million during the period.

The demand for retail space across the country is estimated to be 55 million sft and. NCR, Mumbai and Bengaluru are expected to account for about 37% of the total demand. Bengaluru is likely to witness the highest cumulative demand for mall space at approximately 7.7 million sq.ft by 2014, closely followed by Mumbai with demand anticipated at 6.5 million sq.ft.

The report says growth in IT and ITeS sector would be the main reason for the spurt in demand in the city's real estate sector. "Despite inadequate infrastructure, IT companies still considered Bangalore a better bet than other cities," the report said. http://findarticles.com/p/news-artic.../ai_n55496212/

Bangalore R&D offshoring hub for 50 percent MNCs


Quote:
Bangalore: Bangalore leads for R&D offshoring by MNCs, both for captive units and outsourced product development. About 50 percent of 780 MNC R&D centers are based in Bangalore, according to the research firm, Zinnov Management Consulting.

"The R&D and innovation ecosystem is well developed here," says C S Chandramouli, Director at Zinnov. A number of semiconductor design firms are today based in Bangalore. "Many low-cost chips are now being developed by Bangalore R&D teams. We are also home to many start-ups who are actively filing patents," says Chandramouli.

About 50 percent of 780 MNC R&D centers are based in Bangalore, according to the research firm, Zinnov Management Consulting.

Being a talent pool, Bangalore becomes the focus of global players for their research and technology units. Sectors which have set up software arms in Bangalore include Boeing, Rolls Royce, BaE, Honeywell, Pratt and Whitney and others. Also, the market observers say that the best access to engineering talents stand in Bangalore.

T Parabrahman, Chairman of CII, Karnataka, said the city has access to the best engineering talent due to the growing number of engineering colleges in the city. "This has helped us become a hub for innovation in machine tools, cutting tools, garment and IT industry," he said, and further added,"With expertise in the core sciences and IISc, our defence industry and related research is also progressing well."

In Bangalore, the Bosch has developed electronic control units (ECU) for diesel and gasoline fuel injection systems for low-price vehicles. These ECUs integrate all the required functions of an engine control into a single unit/compact chipset.

S Sadagopan, Founder of IIIT, Bangalore says the city has many incubation centres in higher educational institutions. These centres are also working with major IT companies for global products. "Universities file for few patents, around 10 per year. But the R&D centers file around several dozen a year," said Sadagopan.

CII inks MoU with Wolverhampton City Council for Aerospace sector cooperation

Tuesday, 16 November 2010
Quote:
Bangalore: Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Wolverhampton City Council have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation in the aerospace sector in addition to assisting each other in the promotion and development of business opportunities and overseas investment, between India and UK.

"Wolverhampton has a 1000 year manufacturing history," said Simon Warren, Chief Executive, Wolverhampton City Council, who is leading the delegation to Bangalore. The delegation identified Bangalore as a city that has similar sectors and business interests.

Wolverhampton hosts four major tier one suppliers to aerospace - Goodrich, Moog, HS-Marston & Timken - manufacturing products, ranging from heat transfer and fluid management to fly-by wire actuation systems and anti-friction bearings. The Tier ones supported by a 200 strong supply chain. The Aerospace sector in particular, plays a major part in Wolverhampton’s economy – and has the largest cluster of aerospace 1st tier suppliers in the West Midlands.

Aroon Raman, Chairman, CII Karnataka State Council said that though there are many companies involved in precision manufacturing with excellent quality standards, a good number of them still lack domain knowledge in aerospace.

Professor Richard Hall, Associate Dean and Professor of Engineering Design & Simulation at the University of Wolverhampton said that a research and technology center could be set up in Bangalore, where trainers could specify what exactly the OEMs need. This could lead to a top-down driven acquisition of domain knowledge.

The University of Wolverhampton has delivered collaborative R&D and skilled graduates to aerospace companies within the Midland, including Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems.

The delegation aims to promote Wolverhampton City as a place for investment and explore the R&D capacity, graduate access, training, skill and CPD opportunities available.

"We are not really looking only at inward investment, but long term collaboration," said Jay Patel, Head of Economic Development, Wolverhampton City Council.

Simon Warren said that they were looking at bringing the SC21 programme, a specialist business support from the Manufacturing Advisory Service, to India.

In the coming days the delegation will be visiting and meeting officials from companies like Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, National Aerospace Laboratories, Dynamatic and other advanced engineering businesses. The delegation will also host business events specifically targeted at the aerospace sector and the supply chain companies.

Notified areas will be excluded from local bodies and planning panel jurisdiction

3 City hubs may get Industrial Township Authority tag

Vijesh Kamath Bangalore, Nov 15, DHNS

Quote:
The State government is contemplating providing ''Industrial Township Authority'' status to three industrial hubs in Bangalore including Electronic City, after the completion of the population census next year.

Peenya Industrial Area and Bommasandra are the other two hubs shortlisted for the special status and autonomy.

Industrial associations of these zones have long been seeking township authority tag. The legislation paving way for setting up industrial township authority was passed in 2002 by making amendments to the Karnataka Municipalities Act. However, successive governments had put enactment of its provision on the backburner citing various reasons.

The Urban Development Department (UDD) now plans to clear the hurdles for setting up the township authorities once the statistical details of census -2011 are published. The census work is scheduled to be completed by next February-end.

The census data will provide us the necessary inputs for a fresh evaluation of industrial zones. We plan to carve out the extent of the proposed industrial township authorities soon after the evaluation, sources in the department told Deccan Herald.

Bangalore’s flagship IT hub - Electronic City is likely to get the tag first as an industrial township authority, the sources said.

As mandated by the 74th amendment to the Constitution, once given township authority status, the notified area will be excluded from the jurisdiction of local bodies and planning panels.

Administration will be done by industrialists and the authority will also have full administrative powers, including collection of property tax and regulation and construction of buildings.

At present, Electronic City has been kept out of the jurisdiction of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and falls under Doddathoguru and Konappana Agrahara Gram Panchayats. The hub is maintained by the Electronics City Industries’ Association.

“The State government has been in correspondence with us. They have sought several clarifications which we have provided to them,” ECIA Col Mohan Chandran said.

Last year, the BBMP placed a proposal before the government to bring Electronic City under its jurisdiction, but it did not materialise. ECIA had sought a township tag instead.

Notifying Asia’s largest industrial zone, Peenya Industrial Area, as an authority would mean that 40 sq kms would come out of the BBMP jurisdiction.

It would translate to at least five BBMP wards ceasing to exist. The elected representatives will however be accommodated as members of the authority, UDD sources said.

Initially, the government will nominate five industrialists to the authority. Subsequently, industrialists will elect their representatives. Besides, three members each from department of industries, town planning and urban development will be nominated to the body, the sources added.
DHNS

There are also plans to make Greater Peenya Industrial area--That would make it damn big--

I agree Blore developed into a IT hub in India because of having early advantages with science institutions and central knowledge based labs along with salubrius climate attracting talent across the country and credit goes partially to karnataka govt's friendly policies and Local people . Blore is a pride of India because its more or less completely developed by Indians after independence unlike the erst while 4 metros. That doesnt make it first world city anyday it is still a 3rd world city and no where compared to any 2nd world cities also.

In India Delhi, Mumbai , Blore, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Pune and Ahmedabad are primary growth centers but all of them 3rd world and cannot be compared to most chineese or even south american cities
.
Mumbai and Delhi are too expensive to acquire 40million sq feet of office space, thats why Gurgaon/Noida and Pune emerged over there, Dont feel elated Delhi and Mumbai still attracts most of the FDI and indian investments outside of IT.

In IT, I feel Hyderabad and Pune has same potential as Bangalore because of cosmopolitanism and able to retain talent.
Hyderabad was attracting Google, Microsoft, and Facebook despite of being no 3 or 4 in terms of total exports. Chennai and Ahmedabad are growing on its own strengths,

I can speak of chennai more because I have been following Chennai, In IT, Chenai manages to export about half of blore in it exports. 5 years back Chennai did not figure in MNC Service companies such as HP and IBM whereas they were really big in Blore now they have moved here and hiring big time as well we have amazon, ebay, yahoo (paypal) and few product companies. Blore is like silicon valley but In US, Boston, Seattle, Virginia are also big tech centers besides reasonable techie presence all major cities. Similarly Indian IT is evolved and established so when folks think of expanding in India they think of Blore, Hyd, Pune, Noida and Chennai in the list of cities to expand choose based on many parameters and expand outside.
At the end of the day the growth in India is still spreading only metros and needs to boil down to tier II, tier III and more to move us from 3rd world to 1st worldI agree

Chennai forummers are passionate and come into discussions here but please dont write crap like treating Chennai as some non performing place. Another question, why so much hatred against chennai?

ELEVATED ROADS CREATE NEW RESIDENTIAL CATCHMENTS
The elevated Tumkur Road and Hosur Road projects have created new residential catchments along their routes, says Leena Mudbidri


Quote:
That improved infrastructure is often the harbinger of development is eloquently visible in two such road projects in the city. Two major elevated road projects have also created new residential neighbourhoods in the suburbs. In Bangalore south, the 10 km elevated Hosur Road expressway connecting Central Silk Board Junction to Electronics City has reduced travel time to just 10 minutes. In Bangalore north, the elevated Tumkur Road project connecting Yeshwantpur to Nelamangala which will soon be operational from this month will cut down commuting time to a mere 20 minutes.
Elevated Hosur Road to Electronics City
Since being operational from January 2010, the 10 km four-lane elevated road from Silk Board Junction to Electronics City in south Bangalore has helped bridge the tedious commute especially for IT employees, bringing down the travel time from 30 minutes along the ground level road to 10 minutes on the elevated stretch.
According to a senior National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) official, this premier road project has decongested the route along the Hosur Road which is the entry and exit point to Tamil Nadu. Heavy traffic which was a bane for commuters now flows freely on the ground level sixlane road.
To cater to the burgeoning need of the IT industry, the Master Plan 2015 has expanded the hi-tech corridor to include south, east and west parts of Bangalore. In south Bangalore, the hi-tech zone will now include the Outer Ring Road (ORR), Hosur Road and Electronic City as prominent hubs for both the IT and ITeS industries.
Realty potential
The signal-free expressway has fuelled realty developments flanking the route to Electronics City which is emerging as a premium office space with a host of software parks and biotechnology units setting up their centres here. Two biotechnology units, one at Electronic City and the other at Anekal, are coming up and are slated to create employment opportunities to residents around here, hence also spurring residential development.
Several villa layouts, row houses, or three-four bedroom apartments are coming up in Anekal, Bommasandra and around Electronics City, predominantly targeted at the IT workforce. Four major BDA layouts - KHB Suryanagar layout, Devraj Urs Layout, Nijalingappa Layout and the K C Reddy Layout - have been planned here.
Elevated Tumkur Road and Nelamangala
The six-lane Bangalore-Nelamangala highway stretch with a 4.5 km elevated portion will enhance connectivity to Tumkur and to the international airport through NH 207. With the completion of this Tumkur Road project, motorists can now drive between Nelamangala and Goreguntepalya (Outer Ring Road junction) in 15 minutes as against over an hour previously.
"Tumkur Road is NH 4 and a vital entry point from south and north Karnataka, Maharashtra and Goa into Bangalore and 80 percent of inbound traffic to the city comes from this route," says a senior official of NHAI. "It is one of the busiest highways in terms of traffic and transports 1.2 lakh passenger car units (PCU) daily," he adds.
Primarily a warehousing and transport area, Nelamangala has come into its own gradually with the city's exponential growth. It is a taluk and according to the Taluk Industrial Development Plan (TIDP) of the Department of Industries and Commerce, it has potential for the promotion of around 900 units in tiny and small scale industries (SSI) sector, including services, besides 122 large and medium scale industrial units. Such developments are expected to result in creating direct employment for about 60,000 persons and indirect employment for about 25,000. Somapura nearby is emerging as a prime automotive spare parts manufacturing hub.
The improved Tumkur Road is scheduled for inauguration in the third week of November according to the official. The toll fee is minimal at Rs 15 per car for oneway and around Rs 25 for two-way entry. The cost of construction has been pegged at approximately Rs 719 crores.
Realty potential
Tumkur Road was always considered an industrial belt due to the factories and godowns in Peenya and Nelamangala. The completion of this road project is gradually spurring warehousing activity in the surrounding areas of Jalahalli, Dasarahalli, Yeshwantpur, Nagasandra, Madanayakahalli, as well as Peenya and Nelamangala. "This kind of expansion will generate employment for thousands of people in the warehousing and logistics sector. With so many employed in the industries and warehouses looking for accommodation close to their workplace, there is tremendous potential for budget housing along Tumkur Road," says Zahed Mahmood, Director, Silverline Realty.
A few developers have launched their residential projects along this route, and social infrastructure such as hospitals, residential schools, colleges, showrooms and hotels are emerging on both sides of the highway.

THE 4.5 KM ELEVATED ROAD LEADING TO NELAMANGALA WILL BE A TOLL ROAD AND WILL EASE TRAFFIC ON THE BUSY TUMKUR ROAD BELOW


TUMKUR HIGHWAY WILL PROMISE A SMOOTH DRIVE BETWEEN THE OUTER RING ROAD AND NELAMANGALA

Tech firms ramping up operations in Bangalore

Bangalore, Oct. 28

Quote:
With the economy on the revival path, the IT hub of Bangalore is getting ready for the next wave of expansion, with global technology companies ramping up India operations.

A promising outlook for the Indian economy and increasing business demand have prompted networking major Cisco to look at diversifying into 30 new businesses including portable video, high-end video conferencing, and smart power grids for cities. With business looking up for Cisco, it is keen to expand its operations in India, primarily Bangalore, which is the company's second global headquarters after San Jose in the US. Currently, the company employs 6,000 people in India, including R&D, sales, and business support staff.

Mr Prasad H.R., Director-Facilities, Cisco India, said: “Globally, demand has revived with the rapid growth of and advances in networking, which in turn drives demand for advanced switches and routers. Cisco considers India a strategic growth region, and has significant business presence in India. Cisco is committed to continuing investment in our Bangalore facilities. Currently, we are occupying 1.4 million sq ft and plan to expand the facility to 2 million sq ft.”

Setting up bases

Realty analysts say that companies such as HP, Juniper Networks, Cap Gemini and Nokia are eyeing more space in the city. According to the IT/ITeS Growth Corridor report by real estate services firm Vestian Global Workplace Services, Nokia Technologies has leased 1.26 lakh sq ft, while Brocade and Akamai Technologies have taken up 90,000 sq ft and 60,000 sq ft space respectively on the Outer Ring Road (ORR).

It is not only the special economic zones and periphery that will see expansion. The central business district (CBD) is also seeing some action. For instance, virtual computing solutions provider Citrix recently opened its single largest development centre in the world, as it moved into its new facility in the heart of the city.

According to Mr Mark Templeton, CEO of Citrix, the 1.2-lakh-sq-ft R&D facility (which has the capacity for 1,500 people) will initially house 500 professionals and the company plans to ramp it up by 100 per cent in the next couple of years.

Foreign docs pitch for B'lore
Mathang Seshagiri, TNN, Nov 24, 2010, 07.01am IST
Quote:
BANGALORE: Medical tourism is old hat. Now, foreign doctors visiting India is a growing trend. As many as 48 (almost three a month) international doctors who registered with the Karnataka Medical Council in 2010, visit hospitals in Bangalore.

These doctors, who come from various countries including smaller ones like Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia, stay here for a few months to a year to perform surgeries together or even to train themselves. As per KMC records, the trend is on the rise. In 2008, 27 international doctors came to India, and in 2009, their number rose to 41.

In 2008, for instance, doctors from US, Bangladesh, France, Japan, Belgium, Iran and Baghdad visited city hospitals for a period of one to three months. Most of these doctors worked at Manipal Hospital, St John's Hospital, Narayana Hrudayalaya, Indira Gandhi Institute of Child Health and even Basaveshwara Medical College at Chitradurga.

Six of them trained and demonstrated on paediatric cardiology cases, while others worked in the dermatology, emergency medicine, gynaecology and even the HIV and dermatovenerealogy departments.

PAEDIATRIC CASES DRAW DOCS

In 2009, along with these hospitals, some also came to Kidwai Institute of Oncology, Sagar Hospital, Lion's Eye Hospital and BGS Hospital. Many from UK came to Sparsh Hospital to perform paediatric orthopaedic surgeries.

In 2010, 48 doctors from US, Italy, Canada, Romania, Switzerland, Germany, Sri Lanka, US, Mexico, Azerbaijan, UK, Korea and a few from other parts of India came to Bangalore. Most of them came for paediatric surgeries and orthopaedic knee replacement surgeries. This time, hospitals like Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology, Mahaveer Jain Hospital, Narayana Nethralaya and Bangalore Medical College also hosted them.

According to the council, these doctors did not come for any monetary gain and stayed here for short spans. This year, the highest number of doctors visited Sparsh Hospital to perform surgeries during their charity event.

A very high number came to Narayana Hrudayalaya for paediatric cardiac surgeries. According to doctors, they take a break from their regular schedule of work in their countries to come here and experience surgeries in India. "Most of them come for training or to observe because we do huge volumes of surgeries. Some of them come on elective posting after finishing medical degrees. They are usually not paid anything for coming and they pay their way for travel too," said academic director, Narayana Hrudayalaya, Dr Kanchi Muralidhar.

CHARITY EVENTS BRING IN NRI DOCS

At Sparsh Hospital, which organizes charity mass surgery events frequently, many Indian doctors living abroad take the opportunity to offer their services to Indian patients.

"Both Western doctors and Indian doctors abroad in very senior positions have come to our hospital to operate on temporary licenses. They look at it as an opportunity to do surgeries for charity. We had close to around 20 very senior doctors from several parts who performed surgeries for underprivileged children during `Sparsh Vachana'. Some also came for the `guru namana' programme, during which we did knee replacement surgeries for retired teachers. They enjoy the experience, and come again and again at their own expense," said Dr Sharan Patil. He said such charity events will help India upgrade its medical services quickly to world-class standards. Around 12 doctors also came to Sparsh Hospital this year for elective posting.

WORK LICENCES

While these observers only get registered with KMC, many also take temporary work licenses from KMC to work with senior doctors in hospitals.

"Around 20% of international doctors come here with temporary work licenses, that allow them to work closely with our senior doctors. The rest only observe. They are not allowed to touch or treat Indian patients. Usually, they come for three to six months. If the country is willing to sponsor, then we have seen some doctors staying for a year with all expenses managed by the government," said COO of Manipal Hospital, Dr Nagendra Swamy. He also added that the number of international doctors is far higher in Chennai and Bangalore, because of the expertise available here and a safer living environment in these cities.

AT ENTRY POINT

Karnataka Medical Council, the statutory body under the Karnataka Act no 34 of 1961, registers every foreign doctor before they visit hospitals here. The doctors have to pay Rs 1,000 and submit proof of their passport, visa, education certificate, inviting the hospital's declaration that they have come only for observation and not monetary gain. They have to pay Rs 1,000 after every three months for extension.

ABB India inaugurates new drives production line in Bangalore

Quote:
ABB recently inaugurated a new production line for the ACS 850,ACQ 810 and ACSM1 models of drives which will now be locally manufactured in India to serve the fast growing needs of industry customers in the country.

The drives, which are highly flexible and compact, can be easily configured to meet the needs of various industries and applications. They are especially useful for process industry segments such as pulp & paper, mining, cement, chemical, and oil & gas industries. They will increase the efficiency of energy used in applications such as cranes, winders and mixers which use a tremendous amount of electricity in manufacturing processes.

Production is set to begin in December with first deliveries going to customers at the end of December 2010

The inauguration of the new line was hosted by Local Business Unit manager for drives, KN Sreevatsa who opened the lamp lighting ceremony and welcomed the 300 guests which included key customers, channel partners and factory workers and company officials.
Following the opening remarks, Mr Biplab Majumder MD and Country Manager for ABB in India reflected said that “As ABB in India has grown so has our local production and manufacturing capabilities. Over the years, we have watched this factory grow from being a single line of drives that manufactured 14000 units per year until today when we are manufacturing 30,000 units.”

Style statements are getting street smart

BANGALORE: Fashion today no longer dwells on the mercy of the well-heeled. Neither is fashion technology a subject of interest for the elite. It's the age of democratisation of fashion.

Those terracota earrings, beaded anklets and silver toe rings that you wear everyday to college; or the leather handbag and silk duppatas you use for occasions -- there is serious business behind it.

The Times of India spoke to students of the National Institute of Fashion Technology on the changing face of this industry.

"Initially, it was considered as a field of the big-city girls. But, now even small-town girls are into it. Trends might seep a little late into villages. But it definitely reaches them. Nowadays, the industry has started picking up trends from villages, like street fashion. It has all changed," said Param Sahib, a third-year fashion designing student.

NOVEMBER 25, 2010
The Rise of the Efficient City
Smaller, more nimble urban regions promise a better life than the congested megalopolis.
Quote:

Most of the world's population now lives in cities. To many academics, planners and developers, that means that the future will be dominated by what urban theorist Saskia Sassen calls "new geographies of centrality." According to this view, dense, urban centers with populations in excess of 20 million—such as metropolitan Tokyo, New Delhi, Sao Paolo and New York—are best suited to control the commanding heights of global economics and culture in the coming epoch.

In fact, the era of bigger-is-better is passing as smaller, more nimble urban regions are emerging. These efficient cities, as I call them, provide the amenities of megacities—airports, mass communication, reservoirs of talent—without their grinding congestion, severe social conflicts and other diseconomies of scale.

Megacities such as New Delhi, Mumbai, Sao Paolo and Mexico City have become almost unspeakably congested leviathans. They may be seen as "colorful" by those engaging what writer Kennedy Odede calls "Slumdog tourism." They may also be exciting for those working within the confines of "glamour zones" with high-rise office towers, elegant malls, art galleries and fancy restaurants. But most denizens eke out a meager existence, attractive only compared to even more dismal prospects in the countryside.

Consider Mumbai, with a population just under 20 million. Over the past 40 years, the proportion of its citizens living in slums has grown from one in six to more than half. Mumbai's brutal traffic stems from a population density of more than 64,000 per square mile, fourth-highest of any city in the world, according to the website Demographia.

Many businesses and skilled workers already are moving to smaller, less congested, often better run cities such as Bangalore, where density is less than half that of Mumbai. Much of this new growth takes place in campus-like settings on the edge of town that take advantage of newer roads, better sanitation systems and sometimes easier access to airports. Companies like Alcatel-Lucent and Infosys offer their employees facilities more similar to those of Silicon Valley or suburban Austin than to Mumbai or Kolkata (formerly Calcutta).
we want city as big as we should have privacy in public place. small cities u often come across people who u know

Not only cleaning, we are planning to have more stringent actions. Because how many times we delete the posts, everything would be back to square one.

As of now we do it in Kerala forums, outright brig/ban of forumers who start this kind of fights, without giving a chance. We have told many times, but again and again this will occur. So only choice was ‘carpet bombing’.

I think the same needs to be done here too.

I have cleared some 4-5 pages taking precious time out of my office hours.

Be ready to face the axe whoever starts the fight from now on. And NO COMMENTS on this topic.

Delhi, Bangalore Up On Mercer's 2010 Quality Of Living Worldwide City Rankings

28/04/2010

Key findings:

 Singapore ranks 28, Hong Kong ranks 71 and Tokyo at 40
 New Delhi, Bengaluru improve ranking
 Australian & New Zealand cities rank high
 European cities continue to dominate the top of the ranking
 Vienna remains at the top, Baghdad at the bottom
Quote:
Vienna retains the top spot as the city with the world’s best quality of living, according to the Mercer 2010 Quality of Living Survey. Zurich and Geneva follow in second and third position respectively, while Vancouver and Auckland remain joint fourth in the rankings. Singapore (28) is the top-scoring Asian city followed by Tokyo at 40. Baghdad, ranking 221, remains at the bottom of the list.

Australian and New Zealand cities rank high this year, with Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington all appearing in top 20 positions.

Slagin Parakatil, Senior Researcher at Mercer, commented, “As the world economy becomes more globalized, cities in many emerging markets, such as the Middle East or Asia, have seen a significant influx of foreign companies and their expatriate employees in recent years. Despite the economic downturn and companies’ efforts to contain costs, quality of living and hardship premiums remain important means of compensating expatriates for differences in living conditions.”

Mr. Parakatil added, “A high-ranking eco-city optimizes its use of renewable energy sources and generates the lowest possible quantity of pollution (air, water, noise, etc). A city’s eco-status or attitude toward sustainability can have significant impact on the quality of living of its inhabitants. As a consequence these are also pertinent issues for companies that send employees and their families on long-term assignments abroad, especially considering the vast majority of expatriates are relocated to urban areas.”

India

Commenting on the rankings of Indian cities, Gangapriya Chakraverti, India business leader, Mercer Information Product Solutions said, “This year, unlike the last, we have seen an upswing in the ranking of Indian cities largely on account of the relatively stable political environment and the easing of foreign trade. Having taken into account environmental factors which impact quality of living for the first time, we have tried to provide even more tangible values to perceptions of what constitutes quality of living, in addition to the more obvious attributes such as health and safety. We foresee 'eco rankings' focusing on attributes such as traffic congestion, water availability, air pollution and waste management, getting a lot more attention in the times to come."

"Indian cities have improved their rankings this year compared to last. The only city to have fallen in ranking is Chennai although it may be on account of new cities being included in the overall study and not a direct reflection of the quality of living attributes in Chennai. The rankings indicate that Bengaluru and New Delhi continue to be perceived as the best amongst Indian cities with Mumbai coming in a close third.", added Rupam Mishra, who leads the global mobility practice within Information Product Solutions business at Mercer India.
