New Railway line Whitefield-Kolar-Nangli

The State’s railway network is going to increase by another 2,200 kms at a cost of Rs 3,000 crore in the next five years, Union Minister of State for Railways K H Mniyappa said on Saturday.
Speaking to reporters after reviewing the ongoing railway projects with the State government officials, Muniyappa said the state government has come forward to share Rs 1,500 crore -50 per cent of the total cost - besides making the land available.
“I am confident that we will be able to complete 3,000 kms of new network by taking up 500 to 600 kms per year. I will discuss with the Railway Board members about the logistics and finance,” Muniyappa added.
He said he would try to include any new projects in the forthcoming railway budget if the State government sends proposals according to the needs and priorities. “I must compliment the State government as the trend of cost-sharing the projects was initiated by Karnataka. In fact, in 2008 the State government got us 2,300 acres of land in four months which we could not get it during the previous four years.”
The new lines that are likely to be taken up in the coming financial year are Gutti-Bagalkot, Davangere-Tumkur, Gadag-Wadi, Shimoga-Harihar and Whitefield-Kolar-Nangli besides a rail coach factory in Kolar

Mahindra Aerospace at Kolar - Narasapura Industrial area

If wishes had wings, scores of small aircraft sporting the Mahindra colours could be winging across Indian skies a few years down the line. Some would be made partly or fully near Bangalore.

It would be easily the first Indian effort at making and selling utility air vehicles.

In reality, at least three versions of small planes ‘priced economically’ should be flying out in three years for domestic users, according to Mr Arvind Mehra, CEO and Executive Director of Mahindra Aerospace P Ltd.

Mr Mehra told Business Line that MAPL would soon start developing its Rs 285-crore greenfield facility at Narsapur (near Kolar), about 40 km from Bangalore.

The plant, to be built on 20 acres, would start production in 12-18 months, initially for components and sub-assemblies. Eventually, the aircraft would be assembled in India and also the US, where there was scope to acquire small companies with certain expertise. It could mature into a market for over 300 small aircraft, he said.

The facility would have 1,000 employees in five years. Currently, a small core group was being recruited. The current programmes would involve an investment of around Rs 500 crore, including the Narsapur facility, and some of it would be spent in due course.

Project will be complete in four months, promises EE

Quote:
Kolar, Jan 28,2012, DHNS:
A sum of Rs 2.8 crore has been sanctioned for road widening project and the widening of MB Road will be completed in about four months, said T Venkatachalaiah, Executive Engineer.

Speaking to reporters, he said the under project, named “NH-4 to NH-4,” road dividers will be erected all along the length of the road through the City and drainages will be constructed on either side of the road.

The road will be 7.5 metre wide and drainage will be constructed in a width of about two metre. The top covering of the drainage will serve as footpath and work will begin from Sunday.

Venkatachalaiah said the debris of demolished buildings would be removed in the first stage after which the construction of drainage will be taken up.

Notice not required

He said no notice was required to demolish the buildings constructed on the government land. Some trees too would have to be felled for the widening. The task should have been carried two years ago. Markings were done on the buildings for demolition about one-and-a-half month ago.

Road widening had become imperative due to increasing vehicular traffic in the City. Work on connecting the three roads running through the City with the National Highway on the outskirts has been taken up. Kolar-Bangarpet road had been developed at a cost of Rs one crore. The road from Clock Tower to Bangarpet Circle too would be developed, he added.

Superintendent of Police Ram Nivas Sepat said the Police department provided security for road widening following a request by the Revenue and PWD departments.

Speaking to reporters during his visit to the demolition site, he said sufficient security was provided to maintain the law and order situation. When questioned about the public being caned, he dismissed it saying: “Such incidents are common when you are trying to disperse a crowd.

Rs 200 crore reserved for water project

Quote:
The State government has earmarked Rs 200 crore for a permanent irrigation project to Kolar and Chikkaballapur districts, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda has said.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, Gowda said the government was committed to tackle water scarcity in the two districts through a permanent irrigation project.

“I don’t want to speak about the project time and again. I will make all efforts to address the issue,” he said. Gowda was on his maiden visit to the town after taking over chief minister.

Later, speaking at the Karnataka Development Programme review meeting, Gowda said the officials should ensure efficient use of the funds released to various departments. He warned of stringent action against any non-utilisation or misutilisation of funds.

Kolar Gold Fields, January 23 2012, DHNS: deccan herald
The taluk administration has decked up the municipal grounds in Robertsonpet for the “Kannada Nudi Teru” organised in the City on Tuesday.

Kannada and Culture Minister Govind Karjol will inaugurate the event at 10 am. A procession comprising troupes representing the cultural heritage of the State will begin from Venkataramanaswamy temple and reach the venue after passing through prominent roads. Three ‘teru’ (chariots) will reach BEML Nagar by this time and the programme will formally begin after the processions reach the grounds.

Tahsildar S M Mangala, Kannada Development Authority co-ordinatory Mallikarjunaiah, City Municipal Council president Dayanand, Municipal Commissioner Balachandra and office-bearers of Kannada Sangha inspected the preparations for the event on Monday. Seating arrangement has been made to accommodate as many as 5,000 people on the ground, tahsildar Mangala said.

Mallikarjunaiah, the co-ordinator of Kannada Development Authority said events such as ‘Kannada Teru’ foster linguistic harmony in border areas. He said people speaking various languages reside in KGF and mutual love and affection among such people facilitates a cordial environment. He said the Authority has released Rs five lakh for construction of a Kannada Bhavana in KGF.

Shekharappa, the president of Kannada Sangha was all the praise for the chairperson of Kannada Development Authority. He said the ‘Teru’ was a long-pending demand of the Sangha and the event would go a long way in promoting Kannada.

Kalairasan, the president of Tamil Sangha had a more broader perspective. He said Kannada is one of the Dravidian languages. “Though we are Tamilians, we share a common root. We are earning our livelihood in Karnataka and our loyalty will always be for the land of Kannada,” he said.

He said the government should hold a Cabinet meeting in KGF too as done in Belagaum. The State government has won the confidence of Tamilians by installing a statue of poet-saint Thiruvalluvar. “We extend a warm welcome to Nudi Teru,” he added.

Scania invests in India





Scania is planning to invest about SEK 200 million in an industrial facility in Bangalore during the coming year. The Scania Regional Product Centre, India will also be the centre of the company’s commercial operations in the country. Scania’s ambition is to sell about 2,000 trucks, 1,000 buses and 1,500 engines per year in the Indian market within the next five years.

The facility is being constructed in an industrial area 40 km east of Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka state in southern India. Production is expected to start in early 2013. It is estimated that almost 800 people will be employed at the facility in the longer term.

The industrial operations will consist of final assembly of truck and bus chassis and bodywork and fitting out of complete vehicles. The head office of Scania’s Indian company, complete with a service workshop and a central parts warehouse, is also being built at the same site.

“The manufacturing of complete trucks locally in the country means that we can cut lead times further and broaden our product offering. Our service to customers will also be improved by having a parts depot in the country,” says Henrik Fagrenius, Managing Director of Scania Commercial Vehicles India.

The facility in Bangalore is Scania’s seventh Regional Product Centre. The others are in Russia, Dubai, South Africa, Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan.

Scania has been represented in the Indian market since 2007, when a partnership was initiated with Larsen & Toubro (L&T). L&T has successfully established Scania’s trucks and services and has developed a close partnership with customers in the mining industry. L&T currently operates about 10 Scania service workshops at various mining sites in the country.

In 2011, Scania established the company Scania Commercial Vehicles India in order to boost its presence through sales to additional segments of the Indian commercial vehicle market.

“There is increasing demand for vehicles and engines of the quality and performance delivered by Scania, together with services that guarantee customers high uptime and low operating cost. We will concentrate on broadening our existing offering of trucks to the mining industry but also in other areas of the construction segment, as well as trucks for heavy special-purpose road transport. In the bus segment we see potential for sales of buses and coaches, both for city traffic and long-distance intercity services,” says Fagrenius.

Residents lock up GP office in Srinivaspur

Residents of Lakshmipur in the taluk staged a protest by locking up the gram panchayat office, demanding drinking water supply and seeking maintenance of sanitation in the taluk on Monday.



Gram Panchayat meeting was organised on Monday. But only Congress members and GP president, Padmajamma were present at the meeting. JD(S) supporters were absent.

Under this condition, PDO Manjunath Prasad decided to postpone the meeting. The residents who had come to the meeting to pour out their grievances, protested against the decision of postponing the meeting.

Residents staged a protest by locking up the office, even when PDO, GP president and members were inside. The protest was withdrawn only after the PDO promised to solve the problems in preference and gave it in writing.

Gram Panchayat members N Venkatesh, Adireddy, Narayanaswamy, Parvathamma and among residents Devareddypalli Narayanaswamy, Ramachandrappa, Afzar Pasha, Zameer Pasha and others were present.

Designed and crafted by nature


Nature’s gift
These ravines come in all shapes and sizes. They are in the shape of giant mushrooms, squatting camel or a vulture. These are but patterns created by nature in Jangamakote in Shidlaghatta taluk of Chikkaballapur district.





These natural formation are found in Jangamakote, about 15 km from Chikkaballapur. Jangamakote was built by a ruler of Sugatur family, Thimme Gowda, for the benefit of Jangamas, a sect of Veerashaiva devotees.

The place is dotted with a number of deep ravines and narrow valleys. It resembles partly like the Chambal ravines in Central India and partly like the Grand Canyon of America. The formations have been caused because of a combination of various factors like erosion by water, wind and weathering of rocks over a long period. The place is a photographers delight and a paradise for those tourists who love wilderness.

But there is no perennial river flowing here. While the depressions are about four-five feet deep at some places, further up the area, they are more than 20-feet deep. The width also varies from five feet to 50 feet. A stream of water that courses through the area, though seasonal, has made the clay-rich soil unsuitable to tread on.

The soil structure and appearance which varies according to the composition of minerals in it, is red and yellow, adding a golden tinge to the landscape. Located in an arid region, the soil also gets easily eroded which enables deepening and lengthening of trenches.

Formation of gullies

Rain water washes away the powdery soil leading to the formation of gullies. Over time, the gullies form a long ravine. As the top soil which is full of nutrients is washed away, the land becomes barren and unfit for cultivation.

These formations are referred to as Badland Topography, according to geologists. Year after year, more and more soil is eroded and is a cause for concern for farmers.

These formations make for a surreal sight; the bluish grey rocks contrasting with the red, yellow and ochre hues of the ravine glowing in the evening light. In fact, this landscape has the potential to be developed as an attraction for visitors if the overgrowth of weeds and prickly bushes are cleared and a guided trail carved out.

“This place serves an intreasting picnic spot for students and adventure sports like trekking and hiking. We bring students here every year”, says D Narayanswamy, a teacher.

Whitefield - Kolar -Nagali Railway route - Survey

http://www.swr.indianrailways.gov.in...stem%20Map.pdf

SURVEY for below routes


[url=http:www.swr.indianrailways.gov.in/uploads/files/1321346011193/]

1) BANGALORE - KOLAR - SRINIVASPUR - MADANAPALLI - KUDAPPA
2) BANGALORE - KOLAR - NANGALI - CHITOOR

A new line from Kolar (Srinivaspur) to Madanapalli road (~ 60 km) provides direct alternative route from Bengaluru to Tirupati (via Kolar, Madanapalli, Pakala) avoiding circuitous route from Jolarpeta, Katpadi).

This link connects Bengaluru, Tirupathy and Chennai with direct and shortest route and has the potential for high speed bullet trains as it connects three most important cities in south India and part of the track is already under trunk route (from Chennai to Renigunta). This also partly completes the proposed Bengaluru-Kuddapah line, the later in the present scenario might need several years to complete.

Kuddapah to Madanapalli road can be completed in future at an appropriate time. Alternatively Kolar- Nangali- Chittoor may be taken up to provide straight line connection between Bengaluru and Chennai.

Procession routes changed in Kolar

Decision taken at peace meeting; no processions at Clock Tower, Domelight Circle and MG Road



The district administration, in order to avoid communal tension and untoward incidents, has decided to change the route of processions taken out during Hindu and Muslim festivals.

The decision was announced by Deputy Commissioner Manoj Kumar Meena, after the discussion at the peace meeting, held at his office on Tuesday. Earlier, the pros and cons of the decisions were aired by the people participating in the meeting.

During the beginning of the meeting, Meena said that the peace in the city was continously under the threat. Police have been targeted by the mob under these circumstances, he added.

Meena said that during the last Ganesha festival procession a bus was torched and recently during the widening of MB Road in the city policemen were the victims of stone throwing by mob. However, the incidents were triggered by trivial issues, he added.

Though, district adminstration is capable of controlling a mob, beyond a point it is not possible, said Meena who sought people’s co-operation in peaceful celebration of various festivals.

External forces

Blaming the external forces for untoward incidents, he said that the forces were instigating people against each other. People should immediately inform the authorities concerned about the activities of such vested interests in order to prevent any untoward incident.

Usually, tension prevails during the Ganesha and the Eid processions. The situation turns dangerous when the processions enters particular areas in the city. Hence, to avoid this procession will be banned in certain areas.

Acting on the advice of police, it has been decided to ban processions at Clock Tower, Doomlight Circle and MG Road, he added.

Decision

However, the decision to change the procession routes and to ban processions at certain key areas, was only arrived after much deliberations.

Though many in the meeting supported the decision, there were a few in the meeting who opposed the decision on the grounds that it would hardly make a difference and to the contrary might aggravate the problem. Some even hesitated to give their opinion.

CMC vice-president L Khaleel Ahmed, Anjuman Islamia president Jameer Ahmed, Mohammed Vaneez and Ramaiah favoured the decision. While Harohalli Narayanswamy opposed the move. CMC member S R Murali Gowda contended that being a elected representative it was neither possible to support nor reject the decision.

Additional SP H R Bhagawan Das said the change in route or the ban was not permanent as even they were bound to change. However, everybody should co-operate in maintaining peace, he added. After lot of discussions, the decision was accepted.
DC warns stern action against against mischief mongers

All those people who disturb peace in the city and threaten to defy district administration will be lodged in the jail, warned DC Manoj Kumar Meena reacting sharply to the Harohalli Narayanaswamy’s comments.

Narayanaswamy who had opposed the changing of the procession route, had said that it was not a solution as police force should be used to avoid untoward incidents.
He said that district administration had changed the procession route even during Ambedkar jayanti.

Meena had even threatened stage massive protest against the decision.

Meena said that he was the president of Ambedkar Jayanti Celebration Committee and would take the necessary step. He once again warned him not to threaten the district administration.

Meena also took Bajarang Dal leader Appi to task for not giving clear cut opinion on change of routes. He threatened to lodge him in Bellary jail if he didn’t speak sensibly.

Raghunath S, the head master of the Government Upgraded Higher Primary School at Kashettipalli in the taluk, has extended his service beyond school, to sensitise village residents for conserving precious medicinal herbs.



He dons the role of a traditional practitioner as well by treating the patients for their several illness. Conserving ‘Tangadi’ (Tanner’s Cassia: Cassia auriculata, Senna auriculata L.) is given priority in his conservation project.

He assigns children the task of collecting the medicinal plant available aplenty in the region.

He said flowers, leaves, stems and roots of ‘Tangadi’ are used in treating different diseases. In Kannada it has different names in different regions: avaragida, avarike, olletangadi, Sakusina, Tangadi, Tangadigida, Tangedi, Taravadagida, Bobbade, Chakoosinagida, Charmahada aavarike, Honnavarigida. Avartaki is its name in Sanskrit.

Its tiny green leaves, pasted along with egg white (albumin) are applied to treat the broken/ fractured bones. The juice of the leaves are applied on eyes for treating conjunctivitis and other problems that are due malnutrition. The powdered leaves mixed with the ash of peacock feathers and oil are used as cure for wounds and burns.

The plant along with its root is dried and powdered for consumption with honey to treat diabetes. It is useful to treat irregular menstrual cycle and to check excessive menstrual flow.

Tangadi also has laxative properties and acts as revitaliser. The herb is non-toxic and reduces excess body heat. Women apply it as shampoo along with curd to wash their hair.

The leaves are used to treat not only humans but also for treating injured oxen. Its logs are used as firewood. Colour prepared by using the skin of the plant is applied on dolls.

The head master strives to create awareness on conserving such medicinal herbs and imbibing knowledge of these indigenous medicinal herbs is integral to educational activities of the children in this school.

‘Bangalore North University’ finds land

Quote:
With the bifurcation of Bangalore University imminent. Bangalore North University (the name that is likely to be chosen) is likely to be set up in Kolar district, between Chintamani and Srinivaspura.

The university will be set up on 300-plus acres of government land and will have 300 colleges affiliated to it. The colleges will include those in Kolar, Chikkabalapur and Hoskote.

The land at Somayajalahalli measures 321 acres and four guntas and the land in Kanisettihalli measures 245 acres and 35 guntas. It is 30km from Hoskote and Kolar and 35km from Chikkabalapur. BC Mylarappa, registrar (administration), BU, said the place that has been identified is a central place for Kolar and the BU is expecting about 300 colleges to be affiliated to the university. Also, efforts are on to look for additional land in Hoskote as it is closer to Bangalore.

Mylarappa added that the name of the university would either be Bangalore North University or Bangalore Rural University. “We will probably go with Bangalore North University because the latter may cause some problems,” he said.

The process involved in the bifurcation of the university is identifying the land and bifurcating the finances and administration of BU. Mylarappa said the faculty would be given an option to choose the university they would want to work at.

While the appointment of a special officer for the university is yet to be decided, Mylarappa said he was an aspirant for the post, considering that he hails from Kolar. “I am open to taking up this post. The work environment here is not conducive; hence I am ready if the offer comes my way. However, let the government take the decision,” he said.

Usually the special officer, after a span of six months, is recommended as the vice- chancellor of the university, which is a decision taken by the cabinet.

Describing the duties of the special officer, Mylarappa said they include identifying the land, the colleges to be affiliated to the university, infrastructure and preparing and submitting a detailed report about the to-be-established university to the government for further action.

On Thursday, the registrar met the higher education minister to pursue the matter.
