I have repeatedly said that tourism, transport infra higher education and food processing should be the three focus areas for the government, after building roads. So far they are giving focus to the first two, but not to the second two. Time is running out for the government and they need to work much much faster.

Fate of Digha bridge hangs in balance

PATNA: Fate of the Digha-Sonepur rail-cum-road bridge hangs in the balance. Inadequate allocation of funds in the current rail budget will further slow down progress of the bridge. The railways may not complete the bridge by the end of 2014 as announced earlier if fund allocation continues to be meagre for this project in future.

According to ECR chief administrative officer G S Tiwari, the railways has sanctioned a sum of Rs 120 crore in the current fiscal for the bridge which is inadequate to carry out work on the bridge in full swing. The ECR needs Rs 500 to Rs 600 crore to expedite bridge work on a priority basis, he said, adding the railways would, however, make all possible efforts to seek resources from the Planning Commission.

According to sources, the railways has been carrying out fabrication and erection work on this ambitious bridge over the Ganga at Digha site in Patna. Out of 36 spans, fabrication work has been completed up to six spans. Fabrication work is, however, under progress with regard to span seven, sources said.

Erection work is also being carried out at the same time on the bridge. Till now erection has been completed up to four spans. The distance between two spans is about 131 metres. Both fabrication and erection work has been part of the superstructure work of the mega bridge, sources said, adding this work will be completed at an estimated cost of Rs 1,192 crore.

According to an ECR official, the railways has set the deadline for completion of the work by the end of December 2014. The whole project is likely to be completed at an estimated cost of about Rs 1,450 crore. But railway officials supervising the work at the site did not rule out possibility of cost escalation which could go up to Rs 2,400 crore, he said.

According to sources, the major problem the railways is likely to face is procurement of raw materials for want of proper funds. At present, the railways has in store raw materials to complete fabrication-cum-erection work up to 10 spans. Thus, the railways would need more funds to hire new equipment as well as procure raw materials, especially steel and iron, to continue pace of bridge work uninterrupted, sources said.

This is going to be the longest rail-cum-road bridge of the Indian Railways having length of about 4.5 km. This bridge will connect south and north ends to the state capital. Besides, the railways is urgently in need of about 6.52 acres of land at Bind Toli in Digha to complete the guide bund of the bridge, sources said.

Above tender says that BSTDC wants to develop hotels in PPP mode. They need to focus on hotels at all key places and along important highways.

Praising the efforts of the hospital management for bringing quality care in the state capital, the actor-turned-politician, also a former Union Health Minister, said that he hoped the hospital would provide world-class treatment to people with varying economic means.

I wonder how good the facilities in the hospital itself is. We must never be taken in by hype a government creates about itself.

Initially the Government of Bihar was doing a lot, but now in their second term, the so-called growth story of Bihar is going down the drain. All the lowhanging fruit of roads is gradually being plucked. Now comes the real hard work of building up a modern State. That is difficult and you need private investment for that, 1000s of cores for that. Unfortunately, Nitish Kumar seems to be more interested in creating a media hype about himself and organising summits of various kinds. Then people come to these summits, make statements NK makes nice speeches. What happens actually? Publicity for the government. We need 100 new colleges in Bihar, teaching everything from Law to archaelogy to anthropology to vet sciences. You need restaraunts and hotels along the roads, you need industries, you need libraries. All these things are a must and government has to focus on it, not summits.

Bus stand project stuck ahead of kick-off

- Seven-month wait for upgrade plan; eight new depots included
PIYUSH KUMAR TRIPATHI
The ambitious plan of Bihar State Road Transport Corporation (BSRTC) to redevelop bus depots in the state on the lines of international airports and railway stations has been deferred by nearly seven months at the very outset. Authorities concerned claim that it would take at least four months before the project takes off.

There is, however, a glimmer of light for the project. The corporation has extended the scope of the project from the original six to 14. It recently issued another request for quotation (RFQ) for this purpose.

“We released a fresh RFQ on March 20 in a bid to get more firms and create competitive conditions in the bidding stage. We have also increased the number of bus depots from six to 14 towns across the state. It would take another four months to start the construction work,” said Uday Singh Kumawat, administrator, BSRTC.

The Telegraph in its edition on September 15, 2011, had reported about the original plans of the BSRTC to redevelop six bus depots. The corporation released the corresponding RFQ on July 6, 2011, inviting firms to construct modern bus terminal-cum-commercial complex in public-private-partnership (PPP) mode.

The modern bus stands were supposed to be developed at Bankipore in Patna, Gaya, Muzaffarpur, Chhapra, Darbhanga and Bhagalpur. The due date for the bid was August 10, 2011. The short-listed firms were supposed to be awarded the work within a month.

A pre-qualification meeting on the project was held on July 25, 2011. Representatives of Assotech Limited, Noida, SKS Logistics Limited, Amrapali Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd, Noida, Ultra Homes Construction Private Ltd, New Delhi, Bharti Realty, New Delhi, Eden City Group, Calcutta, IVRCL Ltd, EDMAC Consulting Pvt. Ltd and Colliers International took part in the meeting. Six applications were received against the RFQ, and four of them were short-listed.

According to the original plan, the project was supposed to be taken to the request for proposal (RFP) stage. The short-listed firms would have been asked to submit their bids by August 10, 2011. Though the BSRTC has moved these four short-listed firms to the RFP stage, it was not satisfied with the overall response received.

Though the names of the four selected firms were not revealed, a source said the corporation did not want to go ahead with only a small number of companies. Hence, it had issued the new RFQ to get more firms involved and increase the competitive nature of the bids.

At present, many of the bus depots in these towns are either dilapidated or have remained vacant. Sources said the proposed bus terminal-cum-commercial complexes might include shopping malls, cinemas, food courts, restaurants and ATM kiosks among other facilities. It may also have lodging facilities.

The terminals would also have contemporary interiors with central air-conditioning and various facilities for travellers like waiting lounges, automatic schedule display, baggage trolleys and others. Safety parameters, including CCTV cameras, metal and arm detectors could also be included.

Punjab is about 1 core tonnes whereas Bihar has only 67 lakh. They need to set a target of becoming the biggest rice producing state in India. WB is now the biggest. Along with this, they need to reopen the existing rice mills in the state and open new ones.

Driving cradle deal with auto major

PIYUSH KUMAR TRIPATHI

The state transport department has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with auto major Maruti Suzuki India Limited to set up a first-of-its-kind motor vehicle and traffic research institute in Aurangabad, 100km south-west of Patna.

To be set up on 15 acres of land with a total plan outlay of Rs 30,29,86,000, Institute of Driving and Traffic Research would primarily focus on drivers’ training programme for heavy motor vehicles.

Sources said the institute, which would be run in a public-private partnership mode, would also train people on skills to drive light motor vehicles, besides focusing on road safety research activities.

“After rounds of talks and selection procedure, the department signed the MoU with Maruti Suzuki on Monday to set up Institute of Driving and Traffic Research in Aurangabad. The state government would spend Rs 16.22 crore for the project, while the Centre’s share would be Rs 14 crore. Maruti Suzuki’s contribution to the project would be about Rs 68 lakh,” a senior transport department officer said on Tuesday.

According to the sources, the transport department “ has got over 15 acres near National Highway 2 in Aurangabad from Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority on lease for 99 years to set up the institute.

“A society comprising members of the state transport department and Maruti would be formed within a month. It would run the institute on a no-profit-no-loss basis. The institute would inculcate road safety awareness and safe driving habits among people by organising scientifically engineered training programmes,” the official said.

Maruti Suzuki has set up similar institutes in Maharashtra, Delhi, Uttarakhand and Gujarat in the past few years.

According to the sources, Institute of Driving and Traffic Research, Aurangabad, would be developed as a state-of-the-art facility with driving tracks spread over an area of 20,000-25,000sqm. It would also have hostels and administrative buildings among other facilities.

“The institute would have sophisticated equipment for training drivers, including advanced computer simulators, a theory module for class-room training and workshops to provide hands-on guidance to the trainees,” the transport department official said.

The sources in the transport department said the proposed institute in Aurangabad would be the first school of its kind to be set up in Bihar for providing training to heavy motor vehicle drivers. The sources added that such training programmes would help in bringing down the number of accidents involving trucks and buses.

The sources said the work on the institute is expected to start within two to three months once the Centre and the state government release their respective share of funds. A source said construction would be undertaken by the state building construction department that would award the corresponding tenders in the next few weeks.

Trust revises plan, aims largest shrine

OUR CORRESPONDENT

Architect Piyush Sompura and Mahavir Mandir Trust secretary Acharya Kishore Kunal in Patna on Tuesday. Picture by Deepak Kumar
Mahavir Mandir Trust has revised the measurements of the proposed Viraat Angkor Wat Ram temple near Hajipur with an aim to make it the largest Hindu shrine, with the tallest spire (shikhar), in the world.

Modelled on the Angkor Wat temple of Cambodia, the proposed temple would be 360-foot long, 360-foot wide and 270-foot tall.

Acharya Kishore Kunal, the secretary of the Mahavir Mandir Trust, said: “We did a lot of research and visited the Archaeological Survey of India office in New Delhi for advice from experts. Temples such as the Kashi Vishwanath shrine in Varanasi, Akshardham in New Delhi and Brihadeeswarar in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, were almost of the same dimension. We did not want the new temple to look similar. We wanted to construct a Ram temple that would be famous globally. So we decided to revise the temple’s dimensions.”

The initial plan was to construct the temple at Rs 100 crore. “But now it may cross Rs 150 crore,” Kunal added.

Earlier, the temple was supposed to be 222-foot-long, 222-foot-wide and 222-foot-tall. The Viraat Angkor Wat Ram temple will come up near Ismailpur village, about 30km north-east of Patna. The area where the temple would be constructed has been named Angkor Nagar.

Piyush Sompura, an architect of the Sompura clan of Gujarat that specialises in temple designing for generations, has offered to construct the temple for free.

Piyush said: “The temple would follow the architectural design of the Angkor Wat but it would not be an exact replica, as the measurements would vary. Like Angkor Wat, the Ram temple would also have five layers and Bhagwan Ram would be housed on the fifth layer, 72-foot-high from the ground layer.”

He added: “There will be 21 sanctum sanctorum and 21 shikhars at the temple. Escalators would be available for old and unwell devotees to reach the main Ram temple. The temple would be pink in colour and stones to construct it would be brought from Bharatpur in Rajasthan.”

Wage politics casts shadow on paper mill revival

- Authorities of closed unit fight against hooligans and former MLA to restart operations
after nine years

JITENDRA KUMAR SHRIVASTAVA IN DARBHANGA

The closed Ashok Paper Mill at Rameshwar Nagar in Darbhanga.
Overcoming threat and hooliganism hurdles, the authorities of Ashok Paper Mill at Rameshwar Nagar are determined to revive the closed unit within three months.

Tired of threats from local hooligans and protests by a former MLA over payment of pending wages to the former employees, the mill officials approached industries minister Renu Kumari, the inspector-general of police, Darbhanga range, R.K. Mishra, deputy inspector-general of police, Sudhanshu Kumar, and district magistrate-cum-collector R. Lakshmanan. Local police hardly extended any help to them.

Scared by the continuous disturbance at work, the mill officials lodged an FIR against Umadhar Prasad Singh, the former RJD MLA of Hayaghat of the district and his accomplices at Ashok Paper Mill police station last week. Singh wanted the mill authorities to pay off the pending wages and other payments to the former employees. The investigating officer of the police station is probing the case.

Following assurance from the district administration and the senior police officers, the mill officials have called former workers to get work done for reviving the unit.

The chairman of Ashok Paper Mill unit, Dharam Godha, told The Telegraph over phone from Calcutta: “The state government has extended all co-operation, except funds, to restart the closed unit. The local police administration failed to take action against the hooligans threatening our officials. So they lodged a case against the former Hayaghat MLA and his aides.”

City superintendent of police Kumar Aikley said: “We had been informed that former MLA Umadhar Prasad Singh and his supporters had organised a meeting on the factory premises and allegedly hurled abuses at the mill officials. A case has been registered in this connection and the investigation is on. We are extending co-operation to the mill officials with respect to security. But they have not informed us about any untoward incident.”

Godha said: “Efforts are on to revamp this unit within three months if the working condition remains conducive and workers are not threatened or disturbed. Once it starts functioning, over 1,000 workers might get jobs and most workers earlier employed in this unit would be absorbed provided they are not on the verge of retirement.”

Spread across 400 acres, Ashok Paper Mill was established in 1957 by the Darbhanga Raj and used to produce newsprint. Later, the governments of Bihar and Assam and Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) owned the company. The mill turned sick in 1988 and its other unit in Jogighopa owned by the Assam Government separated from its parent organisation in 1991. The Rameshwar Nagar unit closed down in 2003.

The state government and IDBI did nothing to revive the unit. Later, the sick unit was taken over by Dharam Godha, a private entrepreneur. On Godha’s initiative, the company is likely to be revived in the next three months.
