End to traffic snarls? Modi to inaugurate 2-lane stretch

Quote:
If State’s riding the ‘industrial boom’, then traffic snarls can’t come a cropper! And hence, Chief Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the two-laned 76-km-long stretch of the ring road, from Vaishnodevi to Bakrol on Wednesday, which is touted to ease traffic on the outskirts of the city in a big way.

With 25,000 per car unit of traffic diverted to this stretch, bottlenecks may no longer trouble people, it is said.

The CM will also lay the foundation stone for four-laning of the road in view of the expected increase of traffic due to fast industrial growth in the region. Though a big portion of it was completed about a year ago and traffic was also allowed on some parts, major stretch of the road remained unused due to non-completion of two railway underpasses.

The railway underpasses_ one at Vatva measuring around 13.5 m and another at Tragad measuring one km_ were completed recently. Tragad railway underpass is reported to be the biggest railway underpass in the country, in terms of length.

Built by AUDA, construction of the two-laned ring road, which is 60 m wide, had begun in 2002 and completed recently at a total cost of Rs 230 crore. The ring road hits Ahmedabad-Vadodara NH-8 at eight different places and State Highway at 13 places.

Keeping in view the expected increase in traffic movement AUDA has decided on four-laning of the road at an estimated cost of Rs 380 crore. AUDA CEO J G Pandya said the CM will lay the foundation stone of the four-laning project on build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis on Wednesday.

“The project will be completed within one and a half years,’’ said Pandya.

It really just depends on how up to date the city's municipal corporation website is, some are really amateurly done and never updated.

Randomly searched a few cities

Pune
http://www.egovpmc.com/tp/cdp.asp

Indore - Pretty amateur site, couldnt find anything, but it might be there, only some of the site doesnt show up for me as I dont have Hindi fonts installed.
http://indore.nic.in/glance.htm

Bhopal
http://www.bhopalmunicipal.com/Bhopal_CDP.pdf

Chandigarh
http://mcchandigarh.gov.in/cdp.pdf

Mangalore - Couldnt find anything
http://www.mangalorecity.gov.in/

Vizag - Page times out
http://202.153.45.201/onlinequeries/townplanning.asp

Its a bit hit and miss really. If theres any particular city you are looking for, just type the name followed by "municipal corporation" in google, and hopefully there will be a website. If there is, theres likely to be a "projects" section.

Hope that helps.

Ahmedabad plays perfect host to corporate culture

Quote:
AHMEDABAD is playing host to the corporate house culture. As the city increasingly catches the attention of the leading corporates across the country, the players are fast dotting the city with their independent corporate set-ups. Reliance Industries Ltd, Reliance ADAG, Sanghi Industries, Gujarat Ambuja Cement, L&T and United Phosphorus among others have either zeroed in on properties or are contemplating to have their own corporate offices in the city.

If the owners of Wagh Bakri tea Gujarat Tea Processors and Packers Ltd did it in 2006, the Essar Group has just began operations from its new regional headquarters. Call it a trend, or a pressing need to stand tall among the rest, corporates are preferring to create their own set-ups rather than housing themselves in rented establishments. As rentals have nearly doubled in prime areas, companies believe that having their own space makes economic sense as well helping them to create an identity of their own.

Alok Sanghi of Sanghi Cement, who wants to shift his office from Ambavadi and is looking out for a plot near Parimal Gardens, reasons, “Apart from being economical, an independent setup helps in building a brand image and promote the organisational culture.”

The Ambani brothers, RADAG and Reliance Industries, are both planning their corporate offices in Ahmedabad. Sources say that RIL wants around 40,000-60,000 square feet for its corporate house. Pharma firm Dishman already owns a piece of land in Ambli and has plans to set up its corporate office there once the floor space index is raised.

Professor of marketing at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, Abraham Koshy says that an independent set up represents a company’s brand and helps a company to nurture its own culture and have a better control system in place.

United Phosphorous has also sought a sizeable plot from the Gujarat government for its corporate office in Gandhinagar. “We are tired of renting office space for ourselves and it makes business sense to have a place of your own,” said Raju Shroff, the chairman and managing director of UPL. Currently, the group operates from a small office in Ankleshwar.

Ahmedabad-based ISP IceNet’s CEO Chirag Mehta, too, is keen to move out from their rented office on the CG Road to 200 feet Ring Road. According to him, it has become embarassing to have foreign delegates visiting the office in commercial establishments littered with paan spits. “We have almost zeroed in on a plot of land and are in the process of negotiating the land prices,” he said.

Projects head at Claris, Pankaj Patel, recollected that they packed their bags from a commercial building off CG Road for an independent set-up near Parimal Gardens in 1996. “Apart from being noticed now, we are able to manage our employees and treat our guests the way we want to,” he said.

“Office rentals have shot up. Apart from big corporates, even smaller companies which are expanding operations are going for independent setups,” said managing director of Navratna Organisers and Developers Ltd Pranav Shah.

The land rate in Ahmedabad is around Rs 70,000-Rs 80,000 per square feet on CG road and Rs 50,000-70,000 per square yard on SG road. The commercial space rentals on ground floor are around 12,000- 14,000 per square feet and around Rs 6000-Rs 8000 per square feet on the first floor.

Jamnagar Farmers strike Gold in SEZ

Quote:

JAMNAGAR: West Bengal may have lost its Nandigram SEZ to protesting landowners, but smart Gujarat farmers are raking in the moolah thanks to the deals struck with SEZ developers.

Nowhere have farmers had it so good as Jamnagar where many have fixed deals for as high as Rs 3.09 lakh per 2.5 acre for non-irrigated land and Rs 4.06 lakh per 2.5 acre for irrigated land with Reliance Infrastructure Limited (RIL).

Revenue records show the same land was valued anywhere between Rs 17,000 to Rs 1.84 lakh per 2.5 acres. "Farmers here have managed good bargains compared to the productivity of the land. Selling off the land at these prices was a better option for them,"says resident deputy collector Himanshu Patel.

RIL has picked up n e a r l y 8,000 acres in villages like Nava g a m , Kanalus, Kanach -hikari Padana and Derachhikari.

"Nearly 3,000 acres of this 8,000 acres was wasteland and we got it after panchayats passed resolutions. We are acquiring another 3,000 acres of private land,"says RIL group president (corporate affairs) Parimal Nathwani.

RIL officials point out that the Supreme Court had recently ruled in their favour after 55 farmers protested against land acquisition, paving the way for future acquisitions.

Now the smarter among these farmers are pumping the compensation amount into buying huge tracts of land around the new SEZ limits, to cash in on future expansions of SEZ.

Others have bought light commercial vehicles, dumpers, JCBs and taxis and have leased them out to RIL for transporting men and material.

Today a chunk of the 2100 vehicle fleet engaged with Reliance is owned by farmers who sold their land to the company.

"In the last six months we have sold 665 LCVs and heavy vehicles," says Cargo Motors manager Haresh Oza happily.

CNG Cogen will fuel Guj Gas Power Play

Quote:
MUMBAI: Gujarat Gas Company Ltd (GGCL) will ramp up its cogeneration (cogen) business to achieve the targeted 100 mw by 2012, envisaging a CAGR of 37%.

The Rs 700-crore Ahmedabad-based company plans to spend Rs 50 crore to expand the cogen business and expects it to turn profitable during this calendar year.

The company’s cogeneration divison is engaged in providing financing and maintenance services to industrial units which plan to convert their captive naphtha-powered power plants to combined heat and power units using natural gas.

Gujarat Gas has also been aggressively boosting its CNG business — expanding its CNG infrastructure from 2 stations in 2002 to 20 in 2006. In 2007, it is expected to add 8 more stations and has earmarked Rs 60 crore for the same.

The company plans to incur an additional capex of Rs 115 crore for 2008 as well, which would be financed through internal accruals.

GGCL, the biggest gas player in Gujarat, expects its Vapi and Jhagadia units to start contributing to the topline this year and become profitable by next year. The company will continue to focus on higher margin retail industrial and CNG segments.

Talking to DNA Money, Mehul Thanawala, manager-corporate affairs, GGCL, said, “Apart from expanding our cogen business, we will ramp up our CNG business . Currently CNG contributes 5% to sales.”

Experts said GGCL operates in one of the most industrialised states — Gujarat, which accounts for 35% of the total natural gas consumed in the country.The demand in Gujarat could jump to 94.5 million metric standard cubic meter per day (mmscmd) in 2010 from 54.1 (mmscmd) in 2005. Surat, Vapi will be the major demand centres. This augurs well for GGCL as it has a strong foothold in Surat, Bharuch and Ankleshwar.

The Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation’s (GSRTC) move to convert its fleet to CNG is also a potential windfall for GGCL. Analysts said the new moves are likely to boost CNG volumes and improve GGCL’s margins going forward. However, as some of its gas supplies are denominated in dollars, any weakening of the rupee could hurt bottomline, they added.

The Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) has now initiated the process of land acquisition to build the approach road to the flyover. The project will cost Rs. 90 million, and the civic body has already paid Rs. 31.6 million to the railway authorities towards the construction expenses.

Jobless in Gujarat? No longer

Quote:
WITH huge industrial investments expected to flow into the state in the coming years, the Gujarat government has set a target of providing jobs to over 1.25 lakh persons during 2007-08 as against 1.11 lakh placed successfully in 2006-07.

Enthused by 363 fresh memorandum of understandings (MoUs) worth Rs 4.61 lakh crore signed during the Vibrant Gujarat Investors’ Summit in January 2007, the employment and training department has set this higher target. There were 8.03 lakh job seekers on the live register on all the 23 employment exchanges in the state as of December 2006 end, according to official sources.

There were 88.29% skilled and semi-skilled persons on the live register. The state has made innovative efforts in finding jobs for them in the private sector by means of industrial and ‘army bharti melas’ (recruitment fairs) and job centres. Besides, these employment exchanges also helped in providing guidance to unemployed candidates to undergo various types of training like air-hostesses, stewards, gas mechanics, call centre assistants and BPO centre assistants. The annual development plan has accorded high priority for employment generation through various state and centrally sponsored schemes. The emphasis would be placed on self employment schemes in agriculture, animal husbandry, dairy development, village and small industries and allied activities. High priority is accorded to maximise employment with special emphasis on agrobased rural industries.

The centrally and state sponsored employment generation schemes include rural development, cottage industries, Gujarat Municipal Finance Board, Gujarat Minority Finance and Development Corporation, Water Development (Irrigation), major and medium irrigation projects, command area development and flood control. Over and above the completion of the multicrore and multi-purpose Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNNL), which is considered to be the lifeline of the state, it is likely to generate large scale employment due to transformation of the agrobased economy of Gujarat.

YOU’RE HIRED
