Orissa’s annual plan for the last fiscal was pegged at Rs 7,500 crore.

New Delhi: The size of the annual plan for 2010-11 for Orissa was fixed at Rs 11,000 crore in a meeting between the Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia and Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.



Complimenting the state for progress in social sector schemes, Ahluwalia said that efforts should be made to improve overall human development index by improving infrastructure for health and education.

He said that modern technology in agriculture especially in paddy cultivation should be encouraged and more projects should be undertaken to develop ground water sources. He appreciated the state government for developing industrial infrastructure to accelerate investment from private sector and to attract Foreign Direct Investment.

He said that development efforts in KBK districts should be further strengthen. Apprising the Commission of various initiatives being taken by the state government to boost the state economy, the Chief Minister said that average annual growth of 9.51 per cent achieved in the Tenth Plan period will be maintained during the current plan period also.

He said investment in agriculture and allied sectors has been scaled up and social sectors like education, health and food security are being strengthened. The Chief Minister urged the Planning Commission to allocate more central assistance for KBK region and expeditious release of funds under PMGSY.

He said that since Orissa has vast potential for development of pulses and oilseeds, the State may be included in the special mission initiated by the centre for this purpose.

Initials bids for Orissa ultra mega power project soon: Shinde

The pre-qualification bids for the 4,000 MW ultra mega power project (UMPP) at Bedabahal in Orissa would be invited “very soon”, Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said on Thursday.

“Once the land acquisition is complete RFQ (Request for Qualification) can be floated,” the minister said without divulging the precise date.

Officials from the Power Ministry met the Orissa government officials to discuss the proposed UMPP, the state is likely to get 1,200 MW of the total 4,000 MW from the project.

The preliminary bids for another such project at Sarguja in Chhattisgarh opened last month. The project is likely to see participation from companies such as NTPC, Larsen & Toubro, and Sterlite Energy.

Power Finance Corp is the nodal agency for these projects.

The government has so far awarded four UMPPs, three of which have been bagged by Reliance Power —— Sasan (Madhya Pradesh), Krishnapatnam (Andhra Pradesh) and Tilaiya (Jharkhand).

Tata Power is executing the 4,000 MW Mundra UMPP in Gujarat, the first 800 MW unit of which is expected to commission during the current plan period (2007—12).

The government had earlier planned to set up nine UMPPs over a period of time that would add to generation capacity in the XIIth Plan Period (2012—17).

ArcelorMittal hopes to start work on India projects this year

NRI billionaire L N Mittal-led ArcelorMittal today said that it expects to start work on its India projects worth Rs 1 lakh crore later this year."On India, I believe, we are making good progress on the greenfield projects and hope to break-ground later this year," ArcelorMittal Chief Financial Officer Aditya Mittal said in a conference call.Asked if the company is looking at mergers and acquisitions to expand its India base, he said, "We have a joint venture with Uttam Galva. We are sensing whether we should have any other partnership in India. But at this point of time there is nothing off the ground."

It is, however, understood that the company has approached firms like the Steel Authority of India Ltd, Bhushan Power and Steel for a possible partnership due to the inordinate delays in launching its projects worth Rs 1 lakh crore for the past five years.

ArcelorMittal had proposed to set up a 12-Million Tonne Per Annum (MTPA) new steel plant, one each in Jharkhand and Orissa. But the proposed ventures are facing delays mainly on account of problems in land acquisition and regulatory hurdles.Faced with tribal protests in Khunti and Gumla districts in Jharkhand, ArcelorMittal is now looking at Petarwar in Bokaro district as the new site for the plant.The project requires around 8,000 acres of land.

On the raw material front, the Union government recently granted a licence to prospect iron ore in Jharkhand to the world's largest steel maker to partly feed the proposed plant.
The Mines Ministry has sought clarification from the state government on granting similar rights to the company in adjoining areas.The company is learnt to have started shifting its employees to other location from its proposed site in Orissa.

It proposes to set up a 12-MTPA plant in the state and requires over 10,000 acres of land.Amid the delays in starting work on the integrated proposed projects, the company had last year entered into partnership with domestic firm Uttam Galva, marking its first operational presence in the country.

Road communications in naxal areas to be developed in BSF presence

Bhubaneswar, Apr 28 : The long awaited Gurupriya bridge in the Naxal dominated district of Malkangiri in Orissa- Andhra Pradeshborder and the Mahupadar-Chikabuka bridge over the river Saberi would soon be constructed with the deployment of Border Security Force in the area.

Chief Secretary T K Mishra told newspersons that the state government would submit a revised proposal seeking central assistance for construction of the two bridges and development of arterial roads in the Maoists affected border areas within ten days.

Mr Mishra was talking to newspersons after discussing the issue with Union Home Secretary G B Pillai through a video conferencing here today.

Chhattisgarh Chief Secretary P J Oomen, the Andhra Pradesh Home Secretary and the Principal Secretary, Roads, also participated in the discussions.

The Chief Secretary said the state government was trying to construct the 900 metre long Gurupriya bridge to connect Chitrakonda-Janabai-Bapamatal since 2002 but had not succeeded yet.

At first the construction of the bridge, with a project cost of Rs 38 crore, was given to Orissa Bridge Construction Corporation but it expressed its inability after it found that the depth of the water was more than 28 metres.

In 2003, the budget for the bridge was revised to Rs 47 crore and Gammon India was entrusted with the job. The company conducted required surveys for construction of the bridge but withdrew stating that they were being threatened by the locals.

Since three battalions of BSF were deployed in the area now it would not be a problem for constructing the bridges, Mr Mishra stated.

NTPC to invest Rs 55,000 crore in Orissa to generate additional 9320 MW

BHUBANESWAR: NTPC Limited (Formerly National Thermal Power Corporation), the largest power generation company in the country, has unveiled an
ambitious plan to invest Rs 55,000 crore in the 12th plan period for additional capacity generation of 9,320 MW by setting up two new plants and expanding the existing Talcher plant.

Notwithstanding the hurdles it is facing in sourcing coal in Orissa, the state-run power major NTPC on Friday announced to set up these new projects at Dadripali in Sundargarh district and Gajmara in the Dhenkanal-Angul belt and to expand the Talcher plant by 1320 MW, according to NTPC regional executive director for East and North IB Pandey

"Over Rs 55,000 crore will be invested in Orissa for new projects", he told reporters here.

While the Dadripali plant, to be built in three phases, would have a capacity of 4,800mw with six units, the 3,200mw Gajmara plant would be set up in two stages, he said, adding land for both the plants is expected to be available in about six months.

National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) on Friday announced to set up two new units in Orissa, besides going for the expansion of its 460-MW Talcher Thermal Power Station (TTPS) in Angul district.

To a query on Orissa’s request for its share of 700 MW, Mr Pandey said, “The Central government can only take a decision on this.”

Since Orissa was a power surplus state in the last part of the 1990s and early in the last decade, it did not avail its share from the NTPC. However, faced with a severe power crisis, the state is now asking for its due 700 MW power from the Centre.

“The Centre has given gave us back only 200 MW power. It is yet to decide on our share of the remaining 500 MW,” energy minister Atanu Sabyasachi said adding that the government was strongly pursuing the matter with the union government.

Lanco Solar plant in Orissa
Friday, 07 May, 2010

Lanco Solar, the SPV of Lanco Infratech, is likely to set up a polysilicon and solar wafer manufacturing base in Ramdaspur village near Cuttack district of Orissa in a notified SEZ.

Lanco envisaged a 120 tpa polysilicon, ingot and wafer manufacturing base in the project. The manufacturing plant is likely to be completed within 18 months from the date of receiving all statutory clearances. The Orissa Government and the Orissa Pollution Control Board have already accorded no objection certificates (NOC) to the project. The water required for the project will be sourced from Mahanadi river.

The company has now invited RFQs to provide EPC contract services for the greenfield project.

In December 2009, the Board of Approval for SEZs accorded clearance for Lanco's solar photovoltaic project.

OPGC to begin work on 1320 MW Orissa power plant in June 2011

BHUBANESWAR: Ending long-drawn battle, Orissa government and US Power utility, AES Corporation have decided to go ahead with third and fourth units
at Ib Valley near Banaharpal in Angul district.

In September last year, the Cabinet headed by chief minister Naveen Patnaik accorded its approval to the revised expansion proposal of Orissa Power Generation Corporation (OPGC) for setting up third and fourth units. The OPGC – a joint venture company Orissa government and US power utility, AES Corporation – has a power plant of 2X210 MW power plant at IB Valley.

In a review meeting held here, both the energy department and AES agreed to finalise the EPC tender in the earliest. “Construction will start by the end of first quarter of next fiscal. We are committed to the project. Everything is going smoothly”, OPGC managing director, Bibek Biswal on Friday told “The ET”.

The expansion will see capacity increase of the OPGC’s third and fourth units by 1320 MW (660X 2).

Mr Biswal said that the Rs 10,000- crore expansion project and coal mining projects will be completed by 2014.

According to the agreement, the OPGC will offload 50% of power generated from these units to the state grid at the rate fixed by Orissa Electricity Regulatory Commission (OERC). However, from the third unit of 660 mw, the state will get 264 MW till the fourth unit is commissioned, considering that the plant load factor is expected to be at around 80%. The fourth unit is expected to be commissioned within six months of the commissioning of third unit failing which the OPGC will share 360 MW of power at 80% PLF load with the state grid.

'Steel output likely to double by 2011-12'

India's steel production will double in the next two years even if Posco and ArcelorMittal projects, which have been stuck for over five years now, do not take off, Steel Minister Virbhadra Singh said on Sunday.

"At present, the steel production is 59.9 million tonnes. By 2011-12, it should increase to at least 120 million tonnes," Singh told a news agency in an interview.

Asked whether the ambitious target can be met even if the Rs 1.5 lakh-crore Posco and ArcelorMittal projects do not materialise by then, he said, "Yes, we have not taken those into account."

Singh stated the Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) has shown his personal keenness and the Steel Ministry has taken up the issue with the state governments concerned.

Posco has been delaying a Rs 52,000 crore ($12 billion) project in Orissa by more than five years due to protests by farmers who are agitating against giving up their fertile agricultural land.

Land acquisition hurdles had caused similar delays in ArcelorMittal's proposed steel plants in Jharkhand and Orissa. Later in November 2009, ArcelorMittal announced its intention to invest Rs 50,000 crore to open a 6 million tonnes per annum steel plant in Karnataka.

Singh said that besides several major producers like Jindal Steel, JSW, Essar Steel, Bhushan Steel and Tata Steel, many secondary steel producers were also implementing capacity-expansion projects.

The minister told the news agency that state-owned SAIL and RINL were also enhancing their existing plants at Bokaro, Bhilai, Durgapur and Visakhapatnam at an investment of Rs 80,000 crore.

SAIL and POSCO are having talks on forming a joint venture plant in Jharkhand or Maharashtra. Steel majors like ArcelorMittal and Tata Steel have also expressed interest in setting up JVs with SAIL, but the discussions were in the initial stages, SAIL chairman S.K. Roongta had recently said.

India's largest steel firm, SAIL, has planned to raise its production capacity from 14 million tonnes to 23 million tonnes.

The Steel Minister said that the government expected most of the expansion work to be completed by 2011-12. "It will increase the capacity in the public sector, which will be almost double (of present)," he told the news agency

Orissa inks pact with 8 mega units for ITCs

To bridge the gap between the available skilled manpower and demand from the upcoming industries, the Orissa government today signed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with eight mega industries for setting up quality Industrial Training Centres (ITCs) in the state.

Anil Samal, director, technical education and training, Orissa government and representatives of eight industries signed the document in the presence of the chief minister Naveen Patnaik.

The companies which inked the agreement with the government are Orissa Power Generation Corporation (Hemagiri), Tata Power Ltd (Banki), Emami Paper Mills (Balgopalpur), RSB Metaltech (P) Ltd (Kalyansinghpur), Surrendra Mining Industries Ltd (Bonei), Monnet Ispat and Energy Ltd (Teleibani), Uttam Utkal Steels (Jhumpura), Ind-Barath Energy (Utkal) Ltd (Lakhanpur).

Though twenty seven industries and public sector undertakings had evinced interest to set up ITCs in the state, eight have signed the MoU in the first phase.

The remaining industries are expected to sign MoUs with the state government in phases.

As per the MoU, the government would identify and transfer the land required for setting up the ITCs. The sponsoring companies would have to develop the required infrastructure in those centres as per the norms of National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT). However, the mega industries would have to pay for the land whether it is government or private land.

All required support would be extended by the directorate of technical education and training for setting up the ITCs where craftsman training in demand responsive trades would be imparted.Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister said, the focus of the industrialisation process in Orissa has been on the inclusiveness to take care of the disadvantaged and the vulnerable people.

The government has already stipulated the norms for employment of locals in all industries, development of ancillary and downstream industries and skill development of the local youths.

He said, the admission to the Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), polytechnics and degree engineering colleges has increased from 30,000 to 1.2 lakh per annum in the last decade.

Signing the MoU with eight mega industries for setting up ITCs would take the state closer to the target of having at least one ITI or ITC in every block of the state.

Chief secretary T K Mishra, Additional Development Commissioner, R N Senapati, industry minister Raghunath Mohanty, industry secretary Saurabh Garg, principal secretary to the chief minister Bijay Kumar Patnaik and other senior officials were present on the occasion.

Orissa mega power project on fast track

New Delhi, June 2: The government is likely to invite bids for the 4,000-mega-watt (MW) power project in Orissa by the middle of this month.

The request for qualification (RFQ) for the Bedabahal project will be issued by the middle of this month, said sources in Power Finance Corporation, the nodal agency that invites bids for the large power projects.

Sources said they were awaiting the final clearance from the state government before seeking technical-cum-commercial qualification bids. “We have been given an assurance by the state government that the final clearance will come within days,” they said.

The Orissa government has acquired the land for the mega power project to be set up at Bedabahal in Sundergarh district, while the coal ministry has allocated Meenakshi, Meenakshi B and Meenakshi dipside blocks.

A project reaches the RFQ stage when land acquisition hurdles are cleared, and the process to finalise the promoter can be initiated. This is followed by the request for proposal, where financial bids are sought and evaluated.

The 4,000MW project requires an investment of between Rs 16,000 crore and Rs 20,000 crore.

Mega power projects enjoy single-window land, water and environment clearances. These projects are given to firms that qualify in the technical and financial rounds and quote the lowest tariff for the power to be generated.

Reliance Power (RPower) has been the most successful in clinching such large projects. It has already been awarded the projects at Sasan (Madhya Pradesh), Krishnapattnam (Andhra Pradesh) and Tilaiya (Jharkhand).

The project at Mundra, Gujarat has been awarded to Tata Power, and the first 800MW unit is expected to be commissioned during the current Five-Year Plan period (2007-12).

RPower, however, may not be able to bid for the new projects as the empowered group of ministers has put a condition that a firm can develop only three mega power projects at a time.

According to the eGoM, a company can bid for a fourth one if it is able to complete at least one of the three projects. The cap has been imposed as it is difficult for a single company to arrange the funds, and any delay could affect government’s power generation plans.

Bhubaneswar: Boomtown for Healthcare

Industrial and infrastructural development has boosted the healthcare market in Bhubaneswar, attracting corporates to set up base in the temple city. Rita Dutta checks out the exciting developments

Dotted with 600 temples and replete with history, Bhubaneswar has been a favourite tourist destination for ages. However, despite being the capital of Orissa, healthcare in the temple city was quite dismal, until recently.

The Dark Age

The healthcare facilities of Bhubaneswar were confined to doctor-owned nursing homes and Government hospitals that provided at best only secondary care. Even the medical college hospitals were located outside the capital; SCB is in Cuttack, VSS in Sambalpur and MKCG is in Behrampur. The city and the state lacked super speciality treatment even in early 2000, except for Kalinga Hospital, Bhubaneswar. Despite contributing 3-4 per cent of the current 25 lakh cancer patients of the country, the state did not have a comprehensive oncology care facility, even five years back. The state, where poverty and malnutrition are overwhelming hurdles, has also been grappling with increased incidence of TB, malaria, and high infant and maternal mortality rates.

People from this state travelled all the way to Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad or Visakhapatnam seeking super speciality care. Says Dr PK Mishra, Medical Superintendent, Aditya Care Hospital, Bhubaneswar, "The only option for treatment for patients requiring renal transplants, which is acute in this coastal belt, was outside the state. While those unable to afford cardiac treatment went to AIIMS, those who could afford it went mainly to Apollo, Chennai. For ophthalmology, patients mainly preferred to go to Chennai's Sankara Nethralaya or Hyderabad's LV Prasad Eye Institute. And for oncology, people mostly chose Tata Medical Hospital, Mumbai." The state did not have cutting edge technology for diagnostic purpose. "One exception was that SB Medical College Hospital was the first hospital in Eastern India to install a CT Scan even in 1960s, but that was being used for the department of neurology," says Dr Mishra.

Now, why did a state with a 40 million population not develop its healthcare facilities, even in its capital? Lack of good infrastructure and slow industrial growth acted as an impediment for investment in healthcare. Abundant natural resources like iron ore and coal in the state also made healthcare investment look less lucrative. As Dr MP Tripathy, Medical Director, Aditya Care Hospital, puts it, "Healthcare is not seen as a very profitable venture in comparison with other industries. What makes it worse is the long gestation period of five to seven years. Thus, local industrialists are always more interested in tapping the state's natural resources and earning a fast buck than investing in healthcare."

Lack of professional managers and good clinical acumen (as most Oriya doctors preferred to work outside the state) also thwarted any good intention of starting a multi super speciality hospital in Bhubaneswar. Opines Dr Saheb Sahu, MD, Kalinga Hospital, Bhubaneswar, "Other deterrents are reluctance of doctors/professional managers to shift base from other parts of the country to a tier II city like Bhubaneswar and banks not being forthcoming in giving funding to hospitals."


However, recent industrial, infrastructural and educational development in Bhubaneswar, has made the city, considered to be one of the cleanest and planned cities of modern India and one of the fastest developing cities of India, the epicentre of healthcare revolution in Orissa. Says Bipul K Jha, Industry Analyst, Healthcare Practice, South Asia & Middle East, Frost and Sullivan, "This change has been powered by the huge investment flow, rising employment opportunities, and increasing foothold of service-based sectors, which has in turn led to rise in purchasing power and increased standards of living."

Bhubaneswar, now being dubbed 'the rising star of the East', has attracted a whopping Rs 6,00,000 crore investment from across all industries like IT, technology, steel, aluminium, tourism, health and education sectors. Huge capex by the large industrial houses in the core infrastructure sector has witnessed a rise of 11.5 per cent in the last two years. The per capita income of the state has shot up from Rs 10,567 in 1999-2000 to Rs 16,149 in 2007-08. The population has grown by nearly 8 per cent in the last decade; the metro area of Bhubaneswar has mixed culture population base of 19 lakh, housing almost 11 percent of the urban population of the state. "Moreover, one corporate hospital (Kalinga Hospital) has set an example for other players by being an early market entrant and doing good business," says Jha.

It is a highly under-served market with its ratio of beds per 1,000 population being two-thirds of the national average of 0.86. What is attracting corporates like Apollo, AMRI, Narayana Hrudayalaya, Vedanta Aluminium, Asian Heart and Global to set up base here is the untapped potential. Says Dr K Ravindranath, Chairman, Global Hospital, who is setting up a 200-bed hospital in Bhubaneswar, "Our hospitals in Chennai and Hyderabad have always been getting a steady stream of patients from Eastern India, which constitutes one third of India's population. Eastern India is also frequented by patients from Nepal and Bangladesh. So it makes complete business sense to foray into Bhubaneswar, before anyone else does."

Kalinga Hospital is the first corporate hospital of Orissa


LV Prasad Eye Institute has a comprehensive eye cancer programme for children

Apollo Hospital has installed Orissa’s first 64 slice CT scan


Aditya Care has pioneered Orissa's first EP study and RFA

Hemalata Hospitals is the only centre in Orissa to have a linear accelerator


AMRI is coming with a 300-bed hospital in the temple city

Desun is coming with a tertiary care hospital in Bhubaneswar


Naryana Hrudayalaya has also planned a tertiary care hospital


In the Pipeline

There are many more hospitals in the pipeline.

AMRI Hospitals: A joint venture between Emami and Shrachi Group of Industries, Kolkata-based AMRI Hospitals is coming out with a multi-speciality hospital at Khandagiri Square, a prime location in Bhubaneswar. This is AMRI's first project outside Kolkata.

Says DN Agarwal, Executive Director, AMRI Hospitals, "This Rs-120-crore project with 300 beds spread over five acres would have an FSI of 3,50,000 square feet. This is likely to be commissioned by August 2010."

Sparsh Hospital: Sparsh Hospital, which runs an 80-bed hospital and claims to have pioneered procedures like Chemoport insertion and Hicman's catheterisation in Bhubaneswar, has planned a 250-bed set up in the Chandrasekharpur area of the city. The new project, built at a cost of Rs 40 crore, would house all super speciality facilities under one roof. Says Dr Ghanashyam Biswas, Director, Sparsh Hospital, "The construction for the new project will start by 2011 and will be completed by 2013."

Care Hospital: After achieving success with the JV project Aditya Care, the Care group has planned a multi super speciality hospital of 200 beds in Chandrasekharpur. The 4.5 acres were acquired around 18 months back, but due to trespassing, construction has not begun yet.

Ayush Hospital: This group, which runs a 120-bed hospital at Acharya Vihar Square in Bhubaneswar, has drawn up a plan for its second multi-speciality hospital in the city at an investment of about Rs 200 crore. The proposed hospital would be equipped with over 500 beds and it is expected to be operational by 2012. Says Dr Ashok Acharya, MD, Ayush Hospital, "The land is being identified for the project and construction work for this hospital is expected to start from next year."

Global Hospital: Hyderabad-based Global Hospital is building a 200-bed hospital. This project, built at an estimated cost of Rs 100 crore on a leased building, would be focusing on tertiary and quaternary care (specially renal transplants). Says Dr K Ravindranath, Chairman, Global Hospital, "This is a JV project with a local group, whose founders are my patients. This is their first venture in healthcare. The hospital would be known as Global Hospital." He added that the cost of equipping the hospital would be borne by Global Hospital. Construction is expected to start by November this year and commissioning is likely by the end of next year.

Narayana Hrudayalaya: Bengaluru-based Narayana Hrudayalaya is coming up with a 750-bed health city at Dum Duma at Khandagiri Square. The hospital, spread over seven acres, would provide multi super speciality treatment. Says Dr Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, Vice Chairman, Narayana Hrudayalaya, "The first phase of the hospital with 250 beds is being built at a cost of Rs 80 crore. We would start construction of the hospital after the monsoons, this year. We would commission the first phase by 2012."

Desun Hospital: Kolkata-based Desun Hospital and Heart Institutive has planned a hospital on Bhubaneswar Cuttack Road. The 250-bed green field project is slated to be commissioned by 2013. Says Sajal Dutta, CMD, Desan Hospital, "This multi super speciality hospital is being set up at an estimated cost of Rs 80 crore."

Vedanta Aluminium: Fulfilling the need for a full-fledged trauma centre, Vedanta Aluminium is setting up a 100-bed state-of-the-art trauma care centre near Gangapada on National Highway 5. This Rs-75-crore project is coming up on 10 acres of land.

Asian Heart Institute: Mumbai's Asian Heart Institute (AHI), established by Dr Ramakant Panda and a few other cardiologists, has also announced plans of opening a state-of-the-art multi speciality hospital in Chandrasekharpur. Spread over 1,50,000 square feet, the 400-bed hospital is expected to come up with an investment of Rs 150 crore. Says Dr Ramakant Panda, Vice Chairman, AHI, "We have a start-up plan for 200 beds at an estimated cost of Rs 70 crore. We would eventually expand it to 400 beds, spending Rs 150 crore." About the significance of the project, he says, "AHI has set a benchmark in providing quality care in the country. Our project in Orissa would be built on the same principles as AHI, Mumbai and would offer the patients the same treatment and care at world class standards."

It will have 12 ultra modern operation theatres, 100 intensive care units, fully equipped modernised pathology services, radiology, imaging services, blood bank, 24-hour pharmacy services and cardiac ambulance services with mobile cathlab. Though the foundation stone of the hospital has been laid, progress was stalled by some dispute regarding the land. "As the land being sought for the project is a Government land, hence acquiring it is a little issue," says Dr Panda.

UIMS: A group of non-resident Oriyas have joined hands to set up Orissa's first nuclear medicine centre- Utkal Institute of Medical Sciences (UIMS).

AIIMS: The upcoming All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) at Bhubaneswar will have a 978-bed hospital. Besides, 15 super speciality and 18 speciality wards have also been proposed. The State Government is supposed to provide 100 acres of land free at Sijua on the outskirts for the prestigious institute. According to a review meeting, while 93 acres have already been transferred for construction, the rest will soon be handed over. The State Government had already provided road connectivity. The much-hyped project is scheduled for completion by 2012.

State economic growth at 8.35 per cent in 2009-10

Quote:
Orissa's economy grew by 8.35 per cent in 2009-10 in line with the national trends and bouncing back from a 6.65 per cent growth which the state had clocked in 2008-09 when it had to grapple with global economic recession.

The growth of 8.75 per cent is as per advanced estimates mentioned in the state's Economic Survey for 2009-10. It may be noted that in the first three years of the 11th Plan (2007-12), the state has achieved an average growth rate of 8.73 per cent despite the adverse impact of the global economic slowdown.

According to the survey, the recent spurt in growth of the state's economy has been spearheaded by services and industrial sectors. The growth in agriculture and allied sectors during the first three years of the 11th Plan has been abysmally low at 1.33 per cent and this remains a matter of serious concern.

As per the advanced estimates of 2009-10, the services sector accounts for 56.3 per cent of the real Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP), followed by industries at 25.44 per cent and agriculture and allied sectors at 18.26 per cent.

Angul district has reported the highest annual growth rate of 7.84 per cent during 1999-00 to 2004-05 while Deogarh has posted the lowest growth of 0.72 per cent during the said reference period. Angul also clocked the highest per capita income among all the districts with Nabarangapur at the bottom. The top five districts in terms of average annual growth rate during the period are Angul, Ganjam, Khurda, Cuttack and Sundergarh.

During the first decade of the 21st century (2001-10), Orissa suffered two negative growth rates of 1.66 per cent and 0.65 per cent in 2000-01 and 2002-03 respectively.

The negative growth rate recorded in 2000-01 was in the aftermath of the super-cyclone which had hit the state in October 1999 and the sectors adversely affected during this period were manufacturing, agriculture and allied activities, construction, electricity, water supply and public administration.

1,000-acre land acquired for Posco project: Orissa govt
Press Trust of India / Bhubaneshwar August 10, 2010, 18:41 IST

The Orissa government today said it has taken possession of over 1,000 acres of the 4,004-acre land required for the Posco-India project in the state and will set up a joint task force to protect the acquired land from encroachment.

"We have taken possession of over 1,000 acres of land at four villages in Kujang gram panchayat area in Jagatsinghpur district," Revenue Divisional Commissioner (central division) P K Mohapatra told reporters here.
Besides betel vines, forest land and revenue land were also acquired during the land acquisition, the verification process for which was conducted from July 28 to August 7, Mohapatra said.

The acquired land comprises at least 52 betel vines and forest land, he said.

However, no land has so far been handed over to Posco- India, which plans to set up a 12 mtpa greenfield steel mill near Paradip at an investment of Rs 51,000 crore.

Learning from experience at the Kalinga Nagar Industrial Complex in Jajpur district where people recaptured land even after accepting compensation, the state government this time decided to ensure that the land acquired for Posco project did not face the same fate, Mohapatra said.

The task force to be assigned protection of the land would comprise members from the police, revenue and forest departments, officials said.

The state government had reduced the land size for Posco project by 300 acres after Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik announced that private land from Dhinkia village would not be acquired for the purpose in view of the opposition from the local people.

Meanwhile, sources at the proposed plant site said many people, who had already accepted compensation for betel vines, were busy rebuilding their betel vines.

Bhubaneswar skyline in for major change

http://www.hindu.com/2009/03/10/stor...1056210300.htm

Quote:
After Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) lifted height restrictions on new buildings, it appears to have triggered a new wave of development in the periphery areas of the capital city.

The city skyline is set to undergo major change with developers queuing up with applications for erecting high-rises.

BDA was actively considering a proposal of constellation of five multi-storeyed building near Pahala, in the middle of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack. City-based HRG Finance and Investment Consultant proposed to build a 22-storeyed residential apartment. Another block would have 21 floors there.

Similarly, Assotech BEBL Infrastructure Private limited has come up with a proposal to start 17-storeyed residential complex at Dumduma.

Gurgaon-based Vipul Limited has already announced Rs. 200-crore worth mega housing project near Khandagiri by proposing a mega project, which is said to be the first high-rise apartment in the city. The company is offering 14 floors to its beneficiaries.

Besides, BDA sources said, proposal for an 11-storeyed residential-cum-commercial complex at Goutam Nagar, in the heart of the city, has already been submitted. Meanwhile, city-based Laxmi Builder has commenced its work on nine-storeyed apartment project near Kalinga Vihar area.

Mostly these high-rise buildings are coming up in fringe areas such as Patrapada, Aiginia, Dumduma, Kalinga Vihar, Patia and Tamando. Earlier, none of residential apartments had gone beyond eight floors in Bhubaneswar.

The tallest building of the capital city is of Orissa State Housing Board. The building has 12 floors.

On government front, Orissa Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (IDCO) has already announced an 18th storeyed complex to cater to the needs of IT, ITES and Corporate houses. The proposed complex, to be named as Signature Tower, will be constructed over 5.47 acres of plot, next to the existing Fortune Tower. IDOC would spend Rs. 147 crore on the project.

After the ministry for environment and forest’s took a stern view of the Vedanta Resources’s alumina project and Posco-India’s steel project, the Orissa government has geared up to keep its records in order. The government has constituted a state-level squad to monitor the implementation of various laws and regulations while putting up industrial projects.

The state government has signed as many as 86 MoUs for projects worth to the tune of Rs 4 lakh crore in sectors like steel, aluminium, cement, power and IT. Out of these MoU companies, about 32 have already gone into various stages of productions.

The constitution of such a squad was felt necessary as many projects are violating the land use, environment and forest laws, employment guarantee policies , rehabilitation and resettlement policies of the government, said a senior government official.
