Google launches operations in Hyderabad and Bangalore

OUR CORPORATE BUREAU
Posted online: Wednesday, October 13, 2004 at 0000 hours IST

HYDERABAD: Search engine major Google has announced the launch of its Indian operations in Hyderabad and Bangalore. Though both the centres have been active for quite few months without much pampering, the founders of Google - Larry Page and Sergey Brin - officially announced the launch of Indian operations in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

In an interactive session with select mediapersons here on Tuesday, both Messers Brin and Page said that Indian operations would be strategic for Google’s worldwide growth. “We are excited and satisfied to see that Indian operations in the long-run will play a pivotal role for the worldwide growth of the company,” said Mr Brin. Both the founders met the President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam in New Delhi on Monday. “Google chose India due to its large, well-educated, technology-literate, English-speaking population, competitive economic environment and sound infrastructure,” Mr Brin said. “Though the company has a small team each in Hyderabad and Bangalore, both the centres will see growth in manpower and infrastructure over a period of time,” said Mr Page.

“There is an enourmous potential in India for the company to recruit the best and brightest people,” he said further.

According to Mr Brin, the Hyderabad centre will be home to engineering, online sales and operations, and human resource functions. “The Hyderabad operations will support the Google’s AdWords advertisers and AdSense publishers throughout the world with seamless online sales, service and support in their local time,” Mr Brin said.

While refusing to disclose the exact manpower as well as the investments, Mr Page said: “We are committed to grow faster in India and we see that there is a huge potential for the Indian operations to serve the worldwide advertisers in 100 different languages by developing new products and search engines to advertise online,” he added.

“After the US and the Europe, Google sees India as the next big country for the company’s overall growth in the years to come,” both the founders said.

Explaining the R&D facility in Bangalore, Mr Brin said that the centre will do research on new search engines, products on e-mail, online advertising, in addition to sales and marketing products. “We expect that the Bangalore centre will also be expanded in a big way in due course of time,” he added. To a question, Mr Page said that the company is currently test marketing the potential of G-mail, which provides huge space to store contents and data.

HUDA to restore five more lakes

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, OCT.13. The Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA), which had restored the three highly-polluted lakes under the Lake Conservation Programme of Green Hyderabad Environment Project, is all set to restore five more lakes by March next year.

Sewage treatment plants


Of the 18 highly-polluted lakes identified in the metropolitan region, HUDA had restored and beautified Saroornagar, Safilguda and Langer Houz lakes and commissioned sewage treatment plants (STPs) in the last two years for treating sewage before letting it into the lakes.

Work is on to restore Pedda cheruvu, Nalla cheruvu, Patel cheruvu, Miralam tank and Durgam cheruvu by March next at a cost of Rs. 44 crores. "Though all the lakes with the exception of Miralam tank has some issue or the other, we are able to proceed with the work by educating and convincing the local people that restoration of lakes was essential for recharging of good quality ground water," the officials said. The common issue however is the tricky `sheekam pattas', believed to have been given ages ago to enable the locals to cultivate land when the water receded. For instance, those who had purchased the plots years ago near Pedda cheruvu argued that their plots were never situated on the lake bed area and the problem had cropped up due to construction of bunds in the downstream areas of the lake.

The lakes which had been reduced to sewage pools with effluents and domestic sewage directly let into them, had become cause for unhygienic conditions and contamination of ground water.

Work begins

A majority of the residents in the vicinity of lakes however were for the restoration and beautification of lakes at the earliest, the officials said.While sites for STPs for the five lakes had been acquired, work had started on 10 mld and 5 mld STPs of Miralam tank and Durgam cheruvu respectively. The work on STPs of remaining three lakes would commence shortly. Meanwhile, preparatory work for the remaining 10 highly-polluted lakes is on while priority is being given for Rangadhamani, Yellamma Cheruvu (Kukatpally), Hasmathpet in Alwal and Suddalavani bordering Municipal Corporation and Kukatpally Municipality.

SINGAPORE TOWNSHIP, Hyderabad



Singapore-style township in Hyderabad
By P.N.V. Nair

The Andhra Pradesh government's dream project of a Singapore-style township planned as a space-saving and self-contained model housing colony at Pocharam, 18 km from Hyderabad, in Ghatkesar mandal in Ranga Reddy district, is all set for execution from June.

The colony, the first of its kind in the state, having a cluster of one-plus 12-storey and one-plus four-storey apartments, each with two-bedroom and three-bedroom flats, will be ready within 18 months. The CESMA International Pvt. Ltd, a subsidiary of the Singapore government's housing agency, will be implementing the project for the AP government. The project would cost an expenditure of Rs 150 crore.


CESMA has charged Rs 183.88 lakh for doing the master planning and for architectural services for the 1,600 flats planned under the first phase on a 50-acre site. The company will shortly sign another agreement for executing the project, treating this as a joint venture with the state government. Another 723 acres of land belonging to the AP Housing Board would be utilised in the subsequent phases.

According to the details given by a team of CESMA, a three-bedroom unit would cost Rs 9 lakh and a two-bedroom unit Rs 7 lakh. The allottees, who were already identified through a set procedure, would be issued the design-architecture sheets. What makes the township different from that being implemented by the local builders here? The Singapore officials explained that there would be efficient use of the available space and the super structure and infrastructure would be constructed employing the most modern technology.

I've just realized that the Hafeez Contractor website has updated information on the Obelisk project, moving it from a concept drawing to a residential(!) project in Hyderabad. It must mean the prelimiary approvals have been given. I'm really digging the design


A little animation I quickly put together from his renderings:

Hyderabad Outer Ring Road:Two-Year Deadline

TIMES NEWS NETWORK[ WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2004 02:06:56 AM ]

HYDERABAD: The 148-km long Outer Ring Road (ORR) that provides a circular route to the city will be a reality in next two years, with the government deciding to speed up acquiring land for the road.

The state government is expected to appoint an IAS officer to acquire land for the ORR in a timebound programme.

The ORR project figured in the Tuesday’s board meeting of the Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda), which is named the nodal agency for the ORR project. It was also decided that the land acquisition should be completed within a month after the appointment of the special officer.

According to Huda chairman D Sudheer Reddy, the authority would foresee no problems in acquiring the land. "The Huda will work on the policy of pay-quick-and-get-quick basis," he told The Times of India.

Reddy said the ORR is a priority job for the Huda and hence the board has decided to expedite the project. Huda has already acquired about 2,500 acres of land covering the length of up to 28 km under phase-I between Gachibowli and Shamshabad.

Chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy during a recent meeting with top officials of the civic bodies also gave a nod to the Huda proposal to seek additional staff to take up land acquisition works.

The outer ring road project will cost Rs 1,315 crore. The objective behind the project is to prevent traffic problems in the city by providing alternate routes, besides developing the surrounding villages.

For this project, the Huda needs to acquire 9,875 acres of land. Under phase-I of the four-phased project the Huda needs to cover the length of 44 km.

Along with an IAS officer the government has also decided to appoint seven senior officials from revenue department to intensify the land acquisition works. The Huda asked the government for more staff and was expecting positive response from the government, Sudheer said.


Japanese team visits HUDA

By Our Staff Reporter



HYDERABAD, OCT. 26. A two-member high-level team of the Japanese Bank for International Co-operation (JBIC) held discussions with officials of the Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA) regarding the Hussain Sagar Lake Restoration project on Tuesday.

The team, comprising Sector Strategies Director-General, Hiroo ITO and Sector Strategies Director, Atsushi Kaneko, was apprised of the status of polluted water of the lake and its surroundings and the measures proposed for improvement of the lake and its catchment area.

The team later visited Picket nala, Kukatpally nala, Prakash Nagar, Island Park and Necklace Road. It also visited the sewerage treatment plant near Khairatabad bridge and the Langer House Lake and inspected the dredging works near Sanjeevaiah Park.

Project cost


The project was estimated to cost Rs. 316 crores, and the JBIC, in principle, had agreed to give a soft loan of Rs. 270 crores. The JBIC additional fact-finding mission visited the city in September to finalise the project strategy.
