RLY. HERITAGE GALLERY TO HOUSE MINIATURE TOURIST SPOTS

Quote:
From now on, tourists visiting the city will be able to see a miniature model of the tourist spots in and around Mysore, connected by rail. This project by the Railways is the first-of-its-kind in the country.



The model measuring 25ftx10ft will be housed in the Heritage Gallery at the City Railway Station. The novel project is the brainchild of South Western Railway, Mysore division, which has awarded the work to the engineers and architects of Sriram Associates based in city.

Speaking to SoM, Ramji of Sriram Associates said that the model built at the cost of Rs. 20 lakh took more than six months to complete. Rs. 14 lakh was obtained through sponsors from Mineral Intel Enterprises, Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC), Hunsur Plywood, Apollo Paint-Bangalore, Siddartha Group of Hotels and Ranga Rao & Sons. The remaining amount was borne by Sriram Associates.

He said that rail transport system, railway engine, tracks, signals, tunnels, bridges, roads, buildings, streams, trees and hills are created in the model to give the visitors a realistic look of Mysore and its surrounding places of tourist interest.

Some of the prominent places depicted in the model are KRS dam, Chamundi Hill, K.R.Circle, Clock Tower, Zoo, St. Philomena's Church, Lalitha Mahal Palace, Mysore Railway Station, Mysore Palace which will be illuminated at night. The picturesque Kodagu region is also included, he said.

Ramji stated that the miniature railway layout will be lit with LED bulbs. The model will be housed in the Heritage Gallery on Platform No. 1 in the Mysore Railway Station. He said that most of the materials for the project were imported from other countries.

Movement of trains and lights will be activated through sensors installed in the model. It is still not decided about charging entry fee to the Heritage Gallery where the model is housed, he added.

Saying that this is a gift of the Railway Department to the people of Mysore, he added it will be inaugurated on Jan. 1.

Greater Mysore proposed

Quote:
The much awaited Greater Mysore City Corporation came up at the last leg of the council meeting only to be presented for the information of elected representatives. 

The decision remains pending with the mayor adjourning the council.

The subject that attracted the attention of all, was taken up in the end.

Revenue officer S N Balachandra made presentation, saying 41 villages under 16 grama panchayats would be brought under the ambit of MCC, making it greater. According to recent census, Mysore has a population of nine lakh.

Adding to it is the population of 41 villages (1.8 lakh) identified under the plan summing up 10.80 lakh calling for delimitation of wards from the existing 65 to between 95 and 105.

Creating basic amenities would require Rs 823 crore. The expenditure could be met with grants from the govt, the officer said.

The proposal to create Greater Mysore by including 41 villages bordering the city to MCC was tabled in the Council meeting held here yesterday.

A final resolution on the issue was reserved pending debate as it came up last in the agenda. Mayor Pushpalatha Chikkanna adjourned the meeting.

MCC Revenue Officer S.N. Balachandra, who presented the proposal, said that 41 villages under 16 Gram Panchayats (GPs) would be brought under MCC jurisdiction to create Greater Mysore. Villages coming within an area of 128 sqkms will be considered for inclusion.

According to recent census, Mysore has a population of nine lakh. Adding to it is the population of 41 villages (1.8 lakh) summing up to 10.80 lakh, calling for delimitation of wards from the existing 65 to between 95 and 105.

“Providing basic amenities under the project would require Rs. 823 crore for which govt. grants are expected, Balachandra said.

Wards reorganisation

MCC wards need to be reorganised once in 15 years. However, it has not been followed. The city’s population has risen from 7.55 lakh in 2001 to 9 lakh now. Population in each ward was limited to 10,000 to 13,000. But now that the population has risen, it has become vital that the wards be reorganised. As per 2011 census, the population of 41 villages to be included to MCC is 1.80 lakh, which means 18 more wards at the rate of average 10,000 per ward. Since the total population will amount to nearly 11 lakh, the number of wards will rise to 105.

The proposed budget of Rs. 823 crore includes Rs. 100 crore for salaries for the additional 100 staff to be recruited, Rs. 100 crore for road development, Rs. 403 crore for water supply, Rs. 300 crore for underground drains, Rs. 10 crore for lighting, Rs. 10 crore for sanitation and other expenses.

Sources of income are property tax, water tax, permits for entrepreneurship, city planning fees and other fees.

Greater Mysore may become a reality

Quote:
The boundaries of the Mysore urban agglomerate are set to be redrawn by co-opting 41 surrounding villages to constitute Greater Mysore.

This will pave the way for a comprehensive development plan for the new Mysore city to be administered by the Bruhat Mysore Mahanagara Palike. The draft note proposing the creation of Greater Mysore was placed before the Mysore City Corporation (MCC) council for debate on Thursday. Discussions will continue at the next meeting.

Villages included

According to the note, Greater Mysore will extend beyond the existing 128.42 sq. km to incorporate villages under 16 gram panchayats, within a radius of 10 km from the city.

Some of the villages to be co-opted are Hinkal, Hootagalli, Coorgalli, Keergalli, Bogadi, Bandipalya, Hanchya, Metagalli, Srirampura, Belawatta, Alanahalli, Nadanahalli, Hebbal, Chamundi Hills, Madagalli, S. Uttanahalli, Mandakalli, Hosahundi, Chikkanahalli, Choranahalli, Basavanahalli, Yadahalli, Chowdahalli, Bhoogathalli, Gooruru, Kurubarahalli, Shyadanahalli, Mantikyatanahalli, Ramanahalli, Gohalli and Lalitadripura.

Cross 10 lakh mark

The upgradation of the corporation to Greater Mysore will have financial as well as demographic implications.

The population of Mysore as per the 2011 census is nearly 9 lakh. With the 1.8 lakh people in the identified villages being included, the population will cross the one million mark.

This will make Mysore the second city in the State, after Bangalore, to cross the one million population mark, making it a metropolitan city.

A direct consequence of creating Greater Mysore will be the increase in total number of wards in the city corporation from 65 to 105.

Greater Mysore authority

Hi,
I am not understanding why the excitement of Mysore getting greater by adding more villages to its kitty :-)

If the Bangalore experience is any indication, it is pathetic. Too big to administer efficiently.

Not sure, how it will improvise the condition of living for normal person in Mysore.

State approves new sugar mills

Quote:
Bannari Amman Sugars Ltd is setting up a greenfield unit to manufacture white crystal sugar with a capacity of 3,750 TCD (tonnes crushed per day) with 25 Mw cogeneration plant using bagasse ô biomass in Mysore district at an investment of Rs 375 crore.

The Karnataka government has recently approved the company’s proposal, which also includes setting up 75 kilolitres per day (KLPD) distillery. The company would generate employment to about 416 persons in this plant.

The state high level clearance committee had issued in-principle clearance to the proposal in July this year.
The Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) would acquire 375 acres land at Chowdahalli

village of HD Kote taluk in Mysore district for the proposed project on 70 per cent consent basis, the government order said.

The state government is also providing 7 MLD of water from the Kabini river and 500 KVA initial power. The government would also provide concessions and incentives as per the industrial policy of the state. However, the company has been asked to obtain environmental clearance from the ministry of environment and forests, government of India and other clearances from the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board.

The company has also been asked to prepare a plan for development of human resources required for the project, train local people and provide employment to these trained local youth.

The government has also asked the company to provide employment to at least one member of the family of each land loser if the land is acquired through KIADB.

The government has also accorded approval to Manali Sugars Ltd to set up a unit to manufacture 2,500 TCD sugar mill with 10 Mw co-gen plant in Bijapur district at an investment of Rs 98.94 crore.

The plant is expected to generate employment for 221 persons. The plant would be set up at an area of 87 acres already existing with the company.

Karnataka is the third largest producer of sugar in the country and accounts for about 15 per cent of the country’s total sugar production this year. As many as 59 sugar mills crushed 33.61 million tonnes of sugarcane during the sugar year 2010-11 (October to September), showing a growth of 47.3 per cent over the previous year. During the year 2009-10 sugar season, the mills in the state had crushed 22.81 million tonnes of sugarcane, industry sources said.

Sugar production in Karnataka has hit an all-time high of 3.67 million tonnes during the sugar year, a growth of a whopping 49.3 per cent over the previous year. During the year 2009-10, mills in the state had produced 2.45 million tonnes.

MCC on verge of Greater Mysore

Quote:
A total of 41 villages to come under ‘BMCC’ limits

The coming year sounds good for city, with the process of Mysore City Corporation (MCC) assuming the shape of Bruhat Mysore Mahanagara Palike (BMMP) — Greater MCC — getting a push. The much awaited proposal is most likely to get a nod, in the very next council meeting.

If okayed, the MCC will become greater like Bangalore. The boundary of local body put at current 128 square km will definitely exceed with inclusion of 41 villages coming under 16 gram panchayats into the city corporation limits.

The boundary of MCC was earlier fixed on October 18, 1995, according to Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act 1976. Even after 15 years of drawing the boundary, the city is growing by leaps and bounds, forcing the civic body to attend to the needs of localities situated near its boundary. The irony is, though the corporation is not generating any revenue for the services offered, it is catering to them for being near to contour. Likewise, such localities are also listed and will be handed over to the civic body.

In all, the MCC would require Rs 823 crore to create or improve various facilities like drinking water, road, sanitation, street lights, besides man power. Of the 41 villages identified, 11 have already become a part of MCC with the latter providing drinking water facilities.

They are: Chamundi Hill, Kesare, Kurubarahalli, Hebbal, Dattagalli, Hebbal, Alanahalli, Srirampura, Metagalli, Rammanahalli, Hootagalli and Hinkal. In the remaining villages too, it would not be a problem with water already being supplied through mini water projects. MCC will have to to continue it, spending on its maintenance. Barring those villages, where Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has constructed underground drainages, the work has to be taken up at other places.

According to an estimate, the remaining 30 villages situated 10 km away from the central business district (CBD) may double the existing population by 2041, increasing the demand for drinking water from existing 180 million litres per day (MLD) to 614 MLD. According to Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Sewerage Board (KUWSSB), the demand for water will be 832 MLD by 2061.

The inclusion of all 41 villages will add 402 km of roads to corporation calling for their development at places. Among them, 103 km of roads are in a pathetic state and needs asphaltation. In some cases, roads have to be reasphalted. According to an estimate by PWD, developing every one km (12 feet wide) of road will cost Rs 25 lakh.

Hygiene will also be an issue to be addressed, and it will cost Rs 9 crore annually, besides creating a permanent facility at a cost of Rs 10 crore.

A total of 8,000 street lights will also come under MCC, adding to the existing 58,128 lamps. MCC is spending Rs 2 crore towards maintenance. It would have to install another 4,000 lamps in villages to be included, calling for an investment of Rs 10 crore.

Most importantly, man power is an issue to be dealt with and a total of 100 workers, already working in different GPs, will become employees of MCC. Rs 3 crore per annum towards their salary, perks and other benefits would be required.

Mysore infrastructure growth: a big letdown

Quote:
Many projects taken up under JNNURM have come a cropper

Year 2011 has been drab for Mysore in terms of infrastructure and investment growth as most projects saw little or insignificant progress.

The infrastructure projects of public importance started under the much-touted Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission have come a cropper in view of delays. This includes the ambitious six-lane Outer Ring Road (ORR); completion of the Kabini drinking water works; completion of the Raja Marga; beautification of the core heritage area around the palace; providing round-the-clock water supply to citizens to name a few.

The 42-km ORR was originally slated for completion in December 2010, but the deadline was extended to May 2011. But again the project hit a roadblock as funds were not released on time due to technical glitches brought about by revision of the detailed project report. The new and revised deadline is May 2012 but given the pace of progress there are doubts whether the deadline would be adhered to.

The work on broadening and beautification of the 4.5-km main Dasara procession route was taken up with much ado under the Chief Minister's Rs. 100-crore project. But after partial completion of a 250-m stretch of Albert Victor Road the work stopped. The project has not seen any progress after October, and its future remains uncertain.

Ambitious plans to restore and conserve heritage properties, including Devaraja Market, Vani Vilas Market and Mandi Market, were announced during the year by authorities. This was also discussed in the MCC council but none of them have materialised. The work on embellishing the Town Hall and creating parking facility; construction of an open air amphitheatre using JNNURM funds have also come to a standstill. The Town Hall premises give the impression of a dumping yard.

Industries

On the industrial front, there was not much activity by way of major investments even though the Government announced the creation of electronic hardware park. But as Suresh Kumar Jain, general secretary, Mysore District Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Association, explained, the region was already a hub for electronic manufacturing and the government policy had no role to play in it.

However, the industrial sector continues to be plagued by erratic power supply harming the fortunes of the small and medium industries. The proposed Electronic Hardware Technology Park with focus on medical electronics in Mysore-Nanjangud area has only evoked scepticism. The reason for this is that a similar ambitious plan of establishing a textile park was announced a few years ago, more than 250 acres of land was acquired for the purpose near Nanjangud and the end result was that not a single textile unit came up in the area while the existing ones were closed or limped towards closure.

Deadline for completion of six-lane Outer Ring Road extended due to many delays

University of Mysore to develop Kukkarahalli lake

Quote:
Work to be taken up at a cost of Rs. 1.97 crore

The University of Mysore will take up development of Kukkarahalli lake here at a cost of Rs. 1.97 crore, according to sources here on Friday.

Of the eight works to beautify the lake, re-tender has been invited for one work while the rest have already been awarded to five contractors. The State Government had, in its 2008-09 budget, granted a sum of Rs. 1 crore to the Karnataka Lake Development Authority, and in the 2009-10 budget granted another Rs. 2 crore to the Department of Tourism. The university Registrar had requested the bodies to release the amounts to the university to take up the rejuvenation works.

Accordingly, the works such as construction of an entrance arch at the gate on the eastern side of the lake; setting up an orchidarium, aquarium and a cafeteria; improvement of Kuvempuvana; setting up a slurry pumping unit; and construction of a children's park at the lake would be taken up at the cost of Rs. 44.03 lakh, while bund improvement and de-silting works would be taken up at Rs. 40.69 crore.

Works such as providing the chain-link fencing and construction of compound wall would be taken up at the cost of Rs. 40.4 lakh. Construction of parking area, toilets, security cabins and boating jetty would be taken up at a cost of Rs. 37.13 lakh. Developing a buffer zone and an island comprising bamboo diversity as part of a botanical garden would involve a sum of Rs. 34.83 lakh.

K.M. Jayaramaiah, convenor of the Kukkarahalli Lake Protection Committee, said in a press release here on Friday that funds had been released to the university both by the Karnataka Lake Development Authority and the Department of Tourism. Mr. Jayaramaiah has appealed to the public to offer suggestions to the contractors who would take up the works shortly.

MINI VIDHANA SOUDHA: SANKRANTHI GIFT TO CITY

Quote:
The city of Palace is all set for the launch of Mini Vidhana Soudha during Sankranthi next month.



The construction of the mini Vidhana Soudha, which commenced in 2005, is an ambitious project of the State Government aimed at benefiting the public, especially those from rural areas of the district.

The project, which is the brainchild of Opposition leader Siddharamaiah and started in 2005 when he was the Deputy Chief Minister in the Dharam Singh Cabinet, is now complete and set for inauguration by Sankranthi (Jan 15).

Krishnamurthy, Executive Engineer of the PWD, which has been entrusted with the task of constructing the building, who spoke to SOM, confirmed that the Mini Soudha will be a Sankranthi gift for the city.

The Soudha, built at a cost of nearly Rs. 8.20 crore will house many public offices, thus becoming a power centre of the district. The building is basically designed on the model of Bangalore's Vidhana Soudha, incorporating the heritage characteristics of the city. As all the public offices at the taluk level are housed in this building, the public are largely benefited as they are relieved of moving from one place to another to get their work done, he pointed out.

Continuing, he said the building was initially designed as any other public office complex. But later on, the building plans underwent repeated changes that resulted in the delay of the execution of the project. The initial estimate of the project when it was designed in 2005 stood at Rs. 6 crore but as the design underwent changes, the government was sent a proposal for Rs. 9.30 crore. But no grants were released until 2010. Finally with the efforts of everyone concerned, the work on the project got into full swing in June last and is now complete, with final touches to the building underway, he concluded.
