Need for cargo hub in Surat to attract FDI: ASSOCHAM

The New Delhi-based Associated Chamber of Commerce (ASSOCHAM) has asked Union civil aviation minister and Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi to help set up a full fledged airport for the diamond city of Surat and also a cargo hub to attract huge FDI investment.

ASSOCHAM secretary DS Rawat in a note to Prafful Patel and Narendra Modi has highlighted the potential of south Gujarat.

Rawat said, "Besides being the diamond capital of the world, it could also become hub for textiles, trade, intricate zari works, chemical industries, engineering, logistics and petrochemicals."

He has said in the note that at present, Surat has 6,645 units worth Rs 2,16,790 lakh providing more than 9,000 direct jobs.

At present, 10,000 diamond units are located in and around Surat and 92 per cent of the world's diamonds are cut and polished in the city. About 42 per cent of the world's total rough diamond cutting and polishing, 70 per cent of the nation's total rough diamond cutting and polishing and 40 per cent of the nation's total diamond exports take place in Surat.

Textile, which is the second most important business of Surat, can attract huge investments and could be the largest export item. The district is known as the textile hub of India for producing world-class synthetic clothing in over 45,000 powerlooms. This sector provides over seven lakh jobs and contributes 18 per cent to the total man-made fibre exports and 40 per cent of man-made fabric production in India.

Rawat said once the air-connectivity is provided, Surat will emerge as a centre for food processing industry. The district has a share of 15.24 per cent of the total fruit production in Gujarat by becoming the largest producer of papaya and second largest producer of banana in the state. Surat is the largest producer of okra (lady's finger) in Gujarat with a share of 19 per cent of the total production. The region contributes 10.39 per cent to the total production of spices in Gujarat as it is the largest producer of turmeric and second largest producer of ginger and chilly in the state.

The chamber said Surat has been very successful in attracting sizeable amount of foreign direct investments (FDIs) in vario us sectors like energy, oil and petroleum. A significant investment of Rs 3,000 crore (US$ 726 million) in Hazira LNG terminal project is one of the largest greenfield FDIs in India.

Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Ltd had signed two MoUs in 2007 summit for establishing a 360 MW gas-based power project at Utran and a 500 MW coal-based power project in Ukai entailing an investment of Rs 3,187 crore (USD 759 million). The sectors such as agro, ports, power, textiles, engineering and oil & gas are major investment destination for the investors.

Surat is also emerging as the largest producer of lignite in Gujarat. The district accounted for 19 per cent (17,21,333 MT) of the total production (90,96,438 MT) of lignite in the state. It has huge potential for further expansion of lignite-based thermal power, roofing tiles, stone ware pipes and drainage pipe and glass.

The region is one of the leading city-regions in the country that have attracted massive investments of which a substantial proportion is under implementation.

Despite this, the city has only a single operational flight to and from Delhi and has no cargo business at all. The letter stated that all this could change in a few years if proper connectivity to different parts of country and international destinations is provided from Surat.

Surti dream to fly gets wings

5 Top Airlines Visit Diamond City on Thursday

Quote:
Surat: The diamond city of Surat has started playing the slog overs in its long battle to get a full-fledged airport and cargo hub. After being ignored by the aviation industry for years, top executives of five top airlines in the country descended on Surat on Thursday, with some of them expressing willingness to start operations soon.
For the first time executives of GoAir, Spice Jet, Ventura Airways, Indian and Jet Airways landed here to see the booming industry and the infrastructure of the city. They also got to know of the rising aspirations of Surtis at a meeting on ‘Surat air connectivity’ organised by the Southern Gujarat chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) on Thursday, which saw a massive presence of representatives from trade, industry and hospitality sectors. Vidit Datta, senior executive of Jet Airways said, “Surat could be apromising market for us. We are exploring all possibilities. Even we may think of giving hopping flights to Surat.”
A survey by the Southern Gujarat Hotel and Restaurant Association of the top 10 hotels in Surat had found that 12,000 new bookings were made every month and about 8,000 passengers from Surat travel to various domestic destinations from Vadodara and Ahmedabad. About 6,000 passengers travel to international destinations.
These figures were shared with airline executives. Another senior executive of a leading airline company said, “We see potential in connecting Surat to metros. Till now, we had no data on loading capacity”.
Addressing the audience, SGCCI president Ajoy Bhattacharya said, “Surtis have taken a unanimous decision: Give us air connectivity to various cities or close down the Surat airport forever”. Captain Ajay Chauhan, director of the state aviation department, said, “I want to assure the high flying people of Surat that they will get at least two flights in the next two months. The new entity launched by Gujarat government, Gujsail, will help Surat realise its dream of having more connectivity.”


Surat assures 1,000 flyers to airlines daily

Quote:
Surat: If the data of air travellers to various domestic destinations in the country provided by corporate houses in Hazira and hospitality, textile, diamond and other sectors in the city is any indication then it could be a win-win situation for the airlines keen to start their operations from Surat airport.
Corporate houses in Hazira such as Larsen & Toubro, Reliance Industries, Shell LNG Private Limited, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC), Hindustan Petroleum and Kribhco and representatives of diamond and textile industries, hospitality sector, Vapi Industries Association and Valsad Chamber of Commerce and Industry have given a written assurance to senior executives of the airlines of providing over 1,000 passengers per day provided they get air connectivity to Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune and Chennai from Surat airport.
The city has more than 8,000 passengers, who fly to various domestic destinations every month from Ahmedabad and Vadodara, and about 6,000 international travellers who take their flights from Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad. The domestic destinations like Bangalore, Goa, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata have a huge passenger traffic from Surat.
The Reliance Industries Limited has assured 3,600 passengers from the company for Mumbai, 600 to Ahmedabad, 200 to Jamnagar, 60 to Delhi, 30 to Bangalore and 20 each to Pune and Hyderabad per annum. Likewise, Kribhco has assured 30 passengers to Delhi, 12 to Hyderabad, 15 to Kolkata, 12 to Bangalore and 10 to Jaipur per week.
Sunil Jain, chief manager (HR) of Kribhco, stated in his letter, “Our officials frequently visit Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bangalore and Jaipur.” “Representatives from our company frequently travel to Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jamnagar, Delhi, Bangalore, and Pune on daily basis and they prefer air travel,” said Jatin Vakil, assistant vice-president of Reliance Industries Limited.
On the other hand, the hospitality sector has assured over 200 passengers daily from Surat airport. Sevanti Shah, chairman of Venus Jewel, said, “I have assured the airlines of providing 70 per cent traffic to various domestic and international destinations from here. Every week over 500 diamantaires travel to Antwerp from Mumbai.” SGCCI president Ajoy Bhattacharya said, “The airlines are convinced that they are going to get a good number of passengers. We have given them written assurance regarding the passenger traffic from the airport provided they connect Surat with important domestic destinations.”

Gujarat seeks investment for Rs 13K-cr tourism infra project

Gujarat today invited investments from Punjab in tourism-related infrastructure development, having project size of over Rs 13,000 crore, even as the highly industrialised state is eyeing tourists inflow of 2 crore in current fiscal from across the country.
"We are seeking investments in infrastructure development for tourism from this state (Punjab) as well," Vipul Mittra, Secretary, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Gujarat, told reporters here today.
The Gujarat government has prepared feasibility report for 53 tourism projects worth Rs 13,000 crore to be developed at various places in the state in line with its plans to develop them in participation with private players.
Prominent among tourism projects are development of Suvali beach, new lake at Saputra and an island in Surat.
"We are developing Suvali beach at Surat over an area of 2000 acres which will involve an investment of Rs 1,000 crore. The state has also proposed to develop a new lake, adventure sports at Saputra hill station which will also require infusion of Rs 1,000 crore," he said.
Another mega project is the development of an island called Aliabet at Surat spread over 20 square km and it is going to involve an investment of Rs 500-700 crore, said Mittra.
So far Gujarat state has received interest from Mumbai, Dubai, Seychelles for tourism development projects, he said.

FICCI to create Interactive Portal for Technical Textiles

Inaugurating an Interactive Workshop on Medical Textiles organized by FICCI, Mr. Sujit Gulati, Jt. Secretary, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, advised FICCI to create an Interactive Portal for Technical Textiles so that issues are addressed promptly and the sector becomes globally competitive. A FICCI-SITRA Knowledge paper was also released by him on this occasion.

Highlighting the growth of technical textiles, Mrs. Shashi Singh, Jt. Textile Commissioner, said, “Technical Textiles is ready for exponential growth, with 50 of the Fortune companies in Technical Textiles. Out of a global Technical Textile market of US$127 billion, Medical Textiles in India accounts for US$8.24 billion. Medical Textiles market in India is growing at 20 percent per annum”.

Referring to Nonwoven usage, she said, “The biggest opportunity is in the replacement of woven with nonwovens, which offer greater protection in preventing hospital acquired diseases”.

Ms. Singh called for tie ups with foreign manufacturers or licencing arrangement for manufacture of products under the surgical and extra corporeal category and other hygiene maintenance meditech products, so that they can be produced and marketed at an affordable cost.

Mr. Arun Jariwala, Chairman, Indian Technical Textile Association, said that Manmade Textiles Research Association (MANTRA), in Surat, which has been designated as a Center of Excellence for laminating and Coating by the Gujarat Government, will help scale up country’s Meditech sector to become globally competitive. Gujarat Government has given a grant of Rs.6 crores for setting up plant for manufacturing different types of Nonwoven meditech products, he added.

Assuring that a Plasma Textile Services Centre would be established in Surat if Textile Ministry, Government of India, puts up a mega-textiles cluster in Surat, Mr. Jariwala, expressed that coatings using Nanotechnology and Plasma would enable produce very effective antiseptic and antimicrobial Meditech products. He appealed to the industry participants to explore this new area in technical textiles.

Future perfect, present tense

SURAT: Adajan (West) has seen phenomenal development in the last one decade as some of the dream projects of the city are being undertaken here. Cable-stayed bridge, underwater tunnel aquarium and Sanjeev Kumar Auditorium to name a few are located in this part connecting Surat city to Hajira industrial area.


Newly included areas of Pal and Palanpur villages have as many as 150 new apartment projects in the pipeline which will double the population of this ward in two years' time. Basic infrastructural facilities have been provided by the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) with the implementation of the TP schemes, but still development of a major part of old Palanpur village has not come about. Some of the main issues of this part are related to water, electricity supply, streetlight, drainage, interior road of the residential societies, etc.


Despite supply of 8 MLD of water and 13,000 new domestic water connections, still 20 per cent of water supply network pipeline remains to be laid in this part. Certain societies of Palanpur remain deprived of water, light and drainage.

Traffic jams exist in the parts where flyover project is under construction.

"Our area is relatively well planned. The rate of development and real estate investment in the area is so huge that it could be a problem in itself," said Rajan Patel, a resident. At least 150 projects worth Rs 400 crore related to multi-storeyed apartments are likely to come up in Pal and Palanpur. Completion of projects like cable-stayed bridge and aquarium is expected to increase the area's market value by three-folds. The area will make the SMC provide basic facilities at the earliest because of Rs 130 crore cable-stayed bridge, Rs 100 crore aquarium project and other plans worth Rs 100 crore.

Adajan (West) has a mixed population. Prominent voter groups are 8,000 Patidars, 8,000 Modh Vaniks, 7,000 Koli Patels, 2,000 Marathis, 2,000 Jains, 5,000 SCs\STs and about 1,500 Muslims.

Mukesh Dalal, chairman, standing committee, SMC, is corporator from this area.

"Our area has benefited as one of our representatives has been a key functionary in the SMC. The other reasons are its geographical location and proximity to Hajira industrial area," said Rajni Desai, a resident.

Care for your city like Surat does..!!

The city of Surat, home to 42 per cent of the world’s rough diamond cutting and polishing, faced its worst-ever crisis in 1994 with the outbreak of plague. It has been a remarkable comeback. In 2008-09, it won the “best performing city” award from the ministry of urban development. In 2010, a Government of India study ranked Surat third on its sanitation score across 423 Indian cities. Surat has made full use of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in working towards its urban renewal, bagging 34 projects worth Rs 2,429 crore under JNNURM.


What is strikingly different and refreshing is Surat’s focus on the quality of life of its residents and not just on hard physical infrastructure. The slogan “the city that cares” may well have arisen from adversity, but it has become a way of life for the city’s administrators.


Use of mobile phones to provide real time information on vaccinations for babies is an m-governance initiative of the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) which should reduce costs of healthcare for parents. Those who provide their mobile number at the time of registering the birth of their child are issued alerts to vaccinate their child for preventable diseases according to the schedule prescribed under the national immunisation programme. The alerts are personalised and child-specific, in contrast to the usual standardised print and electronic blurbs, and have evoked the desired response. The service is low cost for the SMC and involves no cost to the citizen. Over 2,00,000 text messages have been sent since the start of the initiative in 2009 covering nearly 50,000 parents who have availed of the vaccination alert on SMS initiative.


In Project Yashoda, healthy mothers donate milk, and after proper pasteurisation, the milk is stored and passed on to newborn babies. Started in December 2008, the human milk bank has received 43,000 ml of milk from 570 mothers, and 450 babies have received 39,000 ml of milk from the bank.


The SMC conducts medical camps in low-income localities every year during the monsoon season (every Saturday in the months of July, August and September). In 2010 so far, 78 medical camps have been held with 4,700 doctors attending on 13,000 patients, and conducting 218 surgeries. Medicines are provided free of cost to patients visiting the camp. A health exhibition to educate people on the prevention of disease is organised on the sidelines of the camps.


The city has taken many initiatives to serve its senior citizens. A number of gardens have been developed for them in residential areas. Known as Shantikunj, these quiet corners are exclusively for senior citizens. Newspapers are provided free every morning at these gardens. The SMC has also built a senior citizen centre, at a cost of Rs 1.3 crore, with a meditation hall, a room for medical checkup, reading room, conference hall, and a hall for multi-purpose activities. Over 20,000 senior citizens are expected to avail of the services offered by this centre. In the spirit of caring, the rebate on property tax for senior citizens was introduced in 2007-08 at 5 per cent, and raised to 10 per cent in 2009-10.


Surat’s Veer Narmad Central Library has a collection of over 2,50,000 books and an e-library of over 1,500 e-books. The SMC has built 47 reading rooms and actively manages these to inculcate the habit of reading amongst its citizens. To cater to the needs of its visually-challenged citizens, the library also houses a collection of over 2,600 Braille books in Gujarati and English. The facilities include free membership, audio equipment and free home delivery of books.


The city that cares also fares well on the cultural front. It has been focusing on building infrastructure aimed at making it an attractive place to live in. An institutional complex with a science centre, an art gallery and museums was built at a cost of Rs 44 crore, and was inaugurated in November 2009. It includes a planetarium, a city museum, a science gallery with over 51 exhibits, an auditorium and amphitheatre. The admission fee ranging from Rs 30-80 per person is moderate and contributes towards maintenance of the complex. The SMC is now building a performing arts centre to provide rehearsal and performance space at low cost to learning and budding artists.


Since 2007, Surat has been celebrating a heritage week from November 19-25, creating awareness of history and tradition through activities like heritage walks, seminars and exhibitions. The SMC has created a heritage cell, formed a heritage conservation committee and set up a heritage fund to protect and promote its cultural history. Over 2,800 public and private properties of heritage value have been identified and documented through an extensive survey. The SMC is now working with local architects and other agencies to finalise the blue print for the development of the Chowk area in the city as a heritage square. A 400-year-old historic water tank — the Gopi Talao — in the heart of the old city, is being restored to conserve heritage as well as environment.


Surat is a highly flood-prone city with more than three-fourths of its 3.8 million population in the coastal plains at risk from the overflowing of the river Tapti. In 2006, the river flowed into nearly 70 per cent of Surat causing unprecedented havoc. A recent study has highlighted that slums and low-income settlements of Surat which are located close to the river are extremely vulnerable to floods. To counter the threat, the SMC has set up the Surat City Advisory Committee to prepare a strategy for resilience. Surat is one of the 10 cities selected under the Rockefeller Foundation’s Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network. Under this initiative, local institutions and experts have come together to study climate change impacts on health, energy, transport and housing, with a focus on the more vulnerable sections of society.


Citizen-focused initiatives have also been successful in attracting greater community participation in city management. Ward committees constituted in March 2008 meet once a month to discuss development issues and recommend works and activities for priority attention. An online system for registration of grievances and redressal has been started since July 2009. Of the 2,500 complaints received during July 2009 to September 2010, 2,300 have been resolved.


Surat received the “most inclusive approach” award from the ministry of housing and urban poverty alleviation in 2009 for its initiatives for the urban poor. Forty-two thousand houses are being constructed for the economically weaker sections of society. Between 1980 and 2006, over 12,600 sites and over 7,400 built houses were allotted on lease basis to the poor urban households. In the last two years alone, over 12,000 households from slums have been rehabilitated in well-planned colonies.


Building livable cities is not only about mega projects. Surat has shown that small initiatives matter. As Commissioner S. Aparna put it, the caring initiatives are one way of reaching out to citizens and taking care of the small things that matter a lot to individuals.

Wow one more multiplex but i think we need more parks & proper beaches and I think SMC should develop Dumas and we also need better & Bigger Waterpark & amusement park
Well the land costs here are too high & thus there is no scope of recreational activities because by the time you plan those activities the rates will be so high too manage something like this, you will think to sell off that land. Only SMC can do this & they are already planning to come up with a high tech entertainment park at magob, also there is an urgent need to develop dumas & suvali beaches but go knows when it will happen.

At capricornian, the Imperial mall is renamed as Rahul Raj Mall & is situated opposite Valentine Cinema & Iris Mall (Surat Central) is situated next to it.
PVR is coming at Rahul Raj Mall, it should start by this festive season while Iris may take december or early next year to complete.
Also Audi is coming near rundhnath icchanath temple that is near Dumas Resort, it would take around 4-5months while BMW is humoured to inaugurate its showroom this festive season i.e by November, its located near the Honda/Skoda showroom.



SMC awaiting govt response on Tapi riverbank land

Quote:
SURAT: Development of Tapi riverbank for public utility projects is likely to be a key issue in the next few years. Walkway, leisure patios and green belt development can change the face of the riverbank. After clearing the riverbank of city's biggest slums, Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) had asked for the rights to maintain and develop one lakh metres of land on the riverbank from the state government.

SMC sources said their aim is to develop this land for public use. Once the state government permission comes, we can go ahead with our development plan. Moreover, the purpose is also to ensure that no new encroachments come up on the land again.

They said a letter in this regard has been sent to the state government asking for the land. The opinion of state irrigation department will be taken before undertaking the development plan. The state government could sell this land outright to the SMC or can just give the rights of development for public use. It can charge certain amount of money for giving the land. Sources said the state government has not taken any decision on the issue. Something can be expected on this after the elections. The SMC has already made a riverfront development cell
