Parsvnath starts maiden project in Jammu

Quote:
Real estate firm Parsvnath Developers today announced the launch of its maiden project 'Parsvnath Passion' in Jammu.

The residential project, has been duly approved by Jammu Development Authority (JDA) with an approximate realization value of over Rs 100 crore in next three years including this financial year.

Parsvnath Passion is the first integrated group housing project being developed in Jammu by a national real estate player. Situated over 11 acres of lush greens having a saleable area of over 7 lakh sq ft, the project has 75% of the total property area as open space for its residents, a company release said.

Parsvnath Passion offers eight floored high rise buildings with 480 units. Offered in the price range of Rs 17 to Rs 30 lakh, these ultra modern apartments are available in choices of 2 B/R, 3 B/R and 3 B/R with attached servant room.

Sanjeev Jain, managing director, Parsvnath Developers said, "Having a strong foothold in other North Indian States, it gives us immense pleasure to announce our arrival with first project in this unexplored state. The project will be distinct and modern in design and offerings and yet will gel with the well defined architecture and natural beauty that the region is so famous for."

Located in the periphery of the city, Parsvnath Passion is being developed in association with Mass House Building Cooperative from the region.

"Work has successfully begun and is expected to take three years to finish," Jain added.

New railway line for Jammu-Akhnoor-Rajauri-Poonch?

I noticed the following in a recent Northern Railway press release from Feb 26:

Quote:
HIGH LIGHTS OF RAIL BUDGET 2008-09 PERTAINING TO NORTHERN RAILWAY
...
...
SURVEY FOR NEW RAIL LINES

• Dehradun-Kalsi
• Jammu –Rajouri –Poonch –Akhnoor
• Meerut-Panipt
• ...
...
I couldn't find any additional details on this new proposed line . Does somebody have any details of this?
(BTW, I think the correct sequence should have been Jammu - Akhnoor - Rajauri - Poonch)

Srinagar International Airport gets final touches before May 31 takeoff

Quote:
SRINAGAR: Airports Authority of India (AAI) is investing over Rs 322 crore on modernising and expanding J&K’s three major airports in Srinagar, Leh and Jammu. This excludes the requirement for upgrading and re-structuring three small peripheral airports in Kargil, Poonch and Kishtwar.

In fact, the hypersensitive and literally fortified airport in Srinagar is nearing its first phase of upgradation to an international one and would be ready by the end of May, officials said. Post-upgradation at an investment of Rs 110 crore, the Sheikh-ul-Aalam international airport with two aerobridges will handle 500 domestic and 450 international passengers at a given point. The six-section terminal building is projected to be the first to have inline baggage X-ray system. “We are doing it in phases and right now almost 80% of the upgradation is over,” an AAI official told ET.

Once complete, its existing tarmac area would jump from 13,045 sq mt to 55,820 sq mt so that it is able to accommodate nine instead of five aircraft simultaneously. Plans are there to have additional parking bays to accommodate wide-bodied jet aircraft and international chartered flights, he said.

MUGHAL ROAD A blast from the past

Life in Kashmir comes to a halt every time an avalanche blocks its only link with the outside world — the landslide-prone Jammu-Srinagar highway. Now, the revival of a 400-year-old road promises an all-weather route to the Valley

Quote:
Traversed by the caravans of emperors and their armies more than four centuries ago, Mughal Road — an alternative road linking the Valley with the rest of the country — would again be abuzz with traffic next year, precisely 421 years after Emperor Akbar took the road to conquer Kashmir. The allweather road would be another option to the 300-km Jammu-Srinagar highway. Mughal Road’s revival was mooted in 1978, as maintaining the Jammu-Srinagar highway was proving difficult. The present highway, cutting across geographically unstable Batote-Ramban-Banihal stretch, is prone to landslides and avalanches.
Mughal Road, on the other hand, passes through a geographically stable terrain and is the shortest link through the Pir Panjal range to the Valley. It would connect Shopian in Kashmir with Bafliaz in Poonch. The work on the project couldn’t gather steam because of its strategic location and apprehensions of possible misuse for infiltration. But the opening of the Uri-Muzaffarabad road, also paved way for the Mughal Road’s revival.
Work on the Mughal Road has restarted after it was halted briefly following protests by conservationists that it would pass through a wildlife sanctuary. Conservationists say the project would disturb the highly-endangered Markhor goat’s habitat. The environmental clearance was also not in place and the road was being constructed without an environment management plan.
The government now hopes to meet the revised deadline of March 2009. ‘‘The work is at an advanced stage and would be thrown open to traffic in March 2009,’’ J&K Roads and Buildings secretary Shailendar Kumar said.
The state tourism department hopes to exploit Mughal Road’s potential. It would conserve several serais and forts, constructed by the Mughals, at various places on the way. ‘‘The region would be opened for tourists and important Mughal buildings would be restored,’’ tourism secretary Nayeem Akthar said.
Emperor Jehangir, known for his love for Kashmir, died on the road while returning from Chingus in Kashmir and his body was kept inside a fort there. The other Mughal monuments on the road include rest houses at Muradapora, Chandimarh and Alyabad and a terrace at Noori Chump waterfalls. Former CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, who revived the road’s construction in 2005, said the Mughal road would open a new chapter of economic prosperity in the region.
Ram Chander Sharma, a social activist, said, apart from being a muchneeded link to the Valley, the road’s impact on development would be significant to the 20-lakh strong population of Pir-Panjal range. ‘‘The travel to Poonch from Srinagar will be reduced from 588 km to 126 km and Rajouri to Srinager from 518 km to 158 km,’’ he said.
However, many like Fazal Ali of a Srinagar-based NGO, question the Mughal Road’s all-weather utility. ‘‘We need a road during the winter when the Jammu-Srinagar highway is closed, but the mountainous range along the Mughal Road always gets early and heavy snow,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s a delusion to think it will supplement the highway.”
The Kashmir University’s Centre of Research for Development in its report questioned the utility of the project saying, “3.63 km of the road is landslide prone and around 20 km of road length on either side of Pir Panjal pass have snow bound sections’’.

Cut off as the strategic Haji Pir area went to PoK in 1947 Work started on the road in 1981 Work suspended in 1985 due to defence ministry’s objections Construction re-starts in Oct 2005 Work briefly stalled following conservationists’ objection in Feb Touches highest point of 11,000-ft at Peer Ki Gali in Pir Panjal range The road originally connected Jhelum in pre-Partition and Shopian in Kashmir Would have 22 bridges, with the longest 30 metres long Would connect Shopian in Kashmir with Bafliaz in Jammu

Great. Best way to keep violence & extremism out of the valley for good is show them the true face of prosperity, development, future & enterpraneurship. Seeing those tulip gardens in full flow brings joy to my face & I'm sure to every kashmiri face living in the valley.

yes my friend, but remember, when we have brainwashed "freedom fighters" trying to kill all and sundry, its also important that the armed forces ensure they meet their 72 virgins in heaven.

Here's a rendering of it from Parsvnath's website. According to their website there will be 14 towers.
