ELCOT will be developing TIDEL park at Ilandhaikulam, and has allocated only 10 acres to IT companies and in the rest 19 acres TIDEL park will be established. ELCOT also has plans to develop IT parks in 100 acres at Vadapalanji with social infrastructure, and hence has sold out only the rest to corporates.

Please see my comments, I have mentioned it as "near future" which means that the work may not start within a year or two.

Im not sure why you are worried about TIDEL parks in other cities. What happened to TIDEL park works in CBE ?. TIDEL park was proposed in CBE in 2003/04 and for Madurai in 2006. From the way things are progressing in a very short span in Madurai(acquring land, getting SEZ status, alloting land to IT companies etc.)., you might be in for a surprise when the works actually start.

Ill be very happy if ELCOT develops TIDEL parks at MDU and CBE as early as possible.

You could be right.

TN govt doesnot have financial resources to develop on its own TIDEL park in all cities.

Mr Umashankar has already spoken about selling of lands to IT companies to develop their own parks in cities other than chennai and CBE or they were looking for some sort of joint ventures.

Now the actions are going on in that direction only

I would not be surprised if MDU park comes along with CBE. Any way India is growing. That's a good sign. CBE is having brighter prospects & investments. Let hope for the best.

Can you provide the source?

Hold on for some time! Let CBE TIDEL park become a reality first. Excavation in Aug - quoted in July 07 paper. Excavation to start in Sep - quoted in Aug 07 paper. Excavation in Oct - Sep 07. Excavation in Nov - Oct 07. What do they have in store for Nov??

Let us talk about private IT parks & their prospects. Lot are coming up. Already few are operating (KGISL, STPI).

In Coimbatore the total land is 62 acres not 29.08.

http://www.elcot.in/elcot_landrequirements_list.php

Apart from Robert Bosch (KGISL), both CTS (already in two premises with 1.5k staffs in Saravanampatty) and Perot (KGISL) are also establishing a large base in CBE thru private SEZs.

http://sify.com/finance/fullstory.php?id=14552542

IT Park update Name of IT Park
Total Extent of Land
Companies Present/Applied

Coimbatore
29.08 Acres
Wipro, TCS, HCL, TIDEL Park


Madurai
268.49 acres
Honeywell, HCL, Tessolve, Satyam, Sutherland Global Services

Trichy

Salem

C. Umashankar said, “The proactive bureaucracy as well as the political leadership with best business resources and environment should encourage industry leaders to choose Tamil Nadu as their IT & ITES destination. A similar view had already been echoed by Nokia, Samsung, Dell, Flextronics and Tessolve by setting up their operations in the state. Technology majors such as Robert Bosch have established large base in Coimbatore. Sutherland Global Services is expanding its operations in all tier 2 locations of Tamil Nadu. The Tamil Nadu state is definitely on its way to be the leader in IT & ITES Sector by 2010.”
Why such a partiality shown towards CBE? All other cities have over 100 acres of land & CBE have just 29 acres! This is how all benifits meants for CBE is stolen away.

The land cost is too high. They tried to get huge land parcels but dropped the idea. The software hype has increased the land value unrealistically.

Rail link: Coimbatore’s cup of woes overflows

The more than three-decade-old dream of Coimbatore coming under a division headquartered within the State is turning out to be a reality after a series of protests and representations. However, the cup of woes continues to overflow in terms of better rail connectivity for the region.

The new Salem Railway division being inaugurated on Thursday renews the hopes of the rail users in the Western Tamil Nadu for better rail connectivity and infrastructure. Despite being the second largest revenue spinner in the Southern Railway next to Chennai, Coimbatore continued to suffer from poor rail connectivity.

Coimbatore that hosts a number of industries, textile mills, manufacturing facilities, educational institutions and hospitals besides being a gateway for Kerala and Udhagamandalam, a hill station in the neighbouring Nilgiris, continued to suffer from inadequate rail connectivity, pointed out S. Vaidyanathakrishnan of the Coimbatore Railway Passengers Association.

He also stressed the need for areas within a State remaining under the control of a division headquartered within the State to avoid complaints of discrimination.

Taking away of the railway headquarters from Podanur to Olavakkode in Palakkad district of Kerala marked the beginning of partisan and step-motherly treatment for Coimbatore and nearby areas, observed K. Kathirmathiyon, secretary of Coimbatore Consumer Cause. Inordinate delay in completing the construction of two-railway overbridges and the work for doubling the railway line between Coimbatore and Irugur dragging on for the last two decades stand testimony to the step-motherly attitude, he added.

While the railway authorities were keen to have Coimbatore with the Palakkad division because of its revenue potential, they seldom bothered to provide new trains or facilities at the railway stations, accused C.M. Jayaraman, vice-president of the Citizens Voice Club. Introduction of new train services with Coimbatore as the origination point would definitely serve the travel needs of those living in Udhagamandalam, Erode, Tirupur and other nearby places, he added.

IT destination


The textile city proving to be a promising Information Technology destination was attracting workforce besides visitors/tourists. But getting a confirmed train ticket would be a Herculean task, K. Ramakrishnan of the Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam pointed out. Mr. Ramakrishnan said there was an immediate need for direct overnight express train service from Coimbatore to destinations such as Bangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Chennai, Nagercoil and Rameshwaram besides service to Goa via Mangalore.

In the absence of a direct overnight train service to destinations in Southern districts, the people are forced to relay on bus services. In the absence of bus service, the omnibus operators thrived charging exorbitant fares. Coimbatore today accounted for operation of more than 100 omnibuses to various destinations. The immediate need would be to operate direct night train service to Nagercoil/Kanyakumari and Rameshwaram via the existing broad gauge line rather than waiting for the completion of the gauge conversion of the Coimabtore – Dindigul – Madurai section. Similarly, the large number of Keralites living in and around Coimbatore for travelling to Thiruvananthapuram and other destinations in Kerala had to rely on the few train services or omnibuses.

There is no overnight train connectivity between Bangalore and Coimbatore. For tapping the tourist traffic and pilgrims visiting Tirupati on a regular basis, the Southern Railway could run daily services to Goa via Mangalore and to Tirupati. But these demands had always been turned down with stock replies such as pathway congestion and lack of terminal facilities.

In the last several years, nothing significant had been done to tide over these constraints to make the Railways help accelerate the growth of this region.

All those rejoicing over the formation of the new division are pinning hopes that the new division would get these long-pending demands turn into a reality.

Radio Mirchi to speak the language of Coimbatore


Radio Mirchi’s studio in Coimbatore

Within the inviting yellow and red walls of the Radio Mirchi FM studio are some of the voices that are going to be a daily phenomenon in people’s life in Coimbatore. “Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM is going to be a part of the system of Coimbatoreans,” says Vinay Prashant, Station Head.

With a team of spirited, young radio jockeys and an exciting programme list, the FM radio station is all set to launch its activities in the city before Deepavali.

The third in the State, the Coimbatore station will cater to popular demand. It will speak the local dialect, discuss topical issues relevant to the city and play the ‘hottest’ Tamil film songs in addition to contests.

Parryware fourth unit by Mar 2006


Kolkata: Parryware, the leading bathroom solutions division of EID Parry (India) Ltd, is investing Rs 60 crore to set up a state-of-the-art plant near Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.

The plant, the fourth by the company having plants in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, would be ready by March 2006, Parryware vice-president K E Ranganathan said. The Rs 6,000 crore Murugappa group company is expecting 40 per cent growth from Rs 196 crore turnover this year.

The company is targeting the tap market in the east and looking at growth in North Bengal, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. In the overseas arena, Parryware is looking at growth opportunities in South Africa, Middle East, Sri Lanka and Europe.

The overall sanitaryware market is estimated to be around Rs 700 crore with the organized sector share standing at around Rs 300 crore, the company official added.

Land Name
Location
Area (acres)
Allotted
Remaining
Tier II City - IT Parks / SEZ
Coimbatore
62
27.53
34.47


In CBE the total land available for ELCOT is 62 acres not 29 acres. There is no large bunch of government land available within city limits. Please note that ELCOT SEZ land is converted from Health department. Just holding lot of land in acres doesn't means that it will attract lot of IT companies. In Chennai most of the IT Parks are constructed in 3-4 acres with 7-8 storeys.
In CBE also same is happening, eg ETL, RR,.

We should be happy that we will have top 4 software companies (Wipro, HCL, CTS & TCS) of our country and MNCS like Perot, Robert Bosch, Tesco.... which is good sign for our city's transformation into IT hub.

I never said i am worried about the Tidel parks in other cities. I feel u may be worried of CBE based projects . It was just my view and the way ELCOT worked in CBE SEZ may happen to other cities too. CBE SEZ got the approval in 2006, website started, booking started and tenders also published in 2007 but why they didn't start the work ?? It's million dollar question. TN Govt or ELCOT cannot start (money matters) the work at the same for the all the cities. They are executing one by one.

fyi - CBE Tidel Park is bit now delayed bcoz of the AAI's objection on the height of the building. So they are modifying the design.

Reliance Fresh enters Coimbatore

http://www.outlookindia.com/pti_news.asp?id=515398

Reliance Retail today unveiled its 'Reliance Fresh' store in this city, the first store outside Chennai in Tamil Nadu.

Reliance Fresh aims to provide unprecedented quality choice and affordability and would focus on a competitive offering to the Indian consumer in all its products and services across all verticals, company sources said.

The company would soon open similar outlets at various parts of Coimbatore and places like Madurai, Salem, Tiruchirapalli and Tirupur. It would employ around 30 trained sales associates, apart from generating direct and indirect employment opportunity in its supply chain and back-end operations, they said.

Launched in Hyderabad in November 2006, Reliance Fresh today has around 343 stores across India, including 39 in Chennai, the sources said.

(I saw a Reliance Fresh store coming up in Sathy Road - Saravanampatty)

Why are you souding so pessimistic about ELCOT projects in other cities ?. I am already happy with the way things have progressed in Madurai. I will be happy to see positive posts on CBE, but not negative and pessimistic views on other cities.
