Physiotherapy college in Jodhpur soon

Quote:
JODHPUR: The first session (2010-11) of the self-financing college on physiotherapy will begin in Jodhpur soon. Counselling will begin some time next week. Chief minister Ashok Gehlot had proposed this college in his budgetary announcement this year. The classes will be conducted in S N Medical College of Jodhpur until the college building is ready.

The principal of the S N Medical College, R K Aseri, said the college is well equipped in terms of infrastructure, laboratory and staff to handle the classes of the first session of the Bachelor of the Physiotherapy (BPT). He said the staff to run the classes of the first year has been appointed and with the progress of the session, more staff and facilities will be arranged. He said that if we do not get sufficient students for the 40 seats, we will come out with the fresh admission notice and admit students on merit basis.

The Rajasthan Medical University, which had conducted the selection examination, will conduct the counselling session.. The regular classes will be held in the medical college whereas the practical classes will be held in the physiotherapy department of the Mahatma Gandhi Hospital.

Windfall for villagers with upcoming IIT project on Jodhpur-Nagaur highway Read more: Windfall for villagers with upcoming IIT project on Jodhpur-Nagaur highway

Quote:
JODHPUR: A few kilometres away from the Sun City' of Jodhpur, on Jodhpur-Nagaur highway, the villagers are a happy lot, thanks to the windfall coming their way in the form of upcoming projects.

Acquisition of land for IIT-Rajasthan campus at the designated place in villages on Nagaur road is also in progress. As news about the upcoming IIT campus spread in the area, real estate prices went up.

The price of the land, which was Rs 1.5 lakh to 2.5 lakh per bigha depending upon its location has now shot up between Rs 10 and 20 lakh per bigha in the open market.

The district administration has earmarked 2,230 bigha on the Nagaur road, which includes the villages of Ghadaw, Jhipasni and Karwad. Of this, 502 bigha is government land and the is owned privately, which needs to be acquired by the administration. O P Bishnoi, deputy commissioner (North) of JDA said that private land is under only Ghadaw and Jhipasni villages and most of that has been acquired.

Terming it to be one of the fastest land acquisition process, he said that government is very enthusiastic about this project and has sanctioned the 502 bigha government land to the IIT free of cost. He added that there will be no injustice with the villagers and they will be given best possible compensation for their land. The area is to be developed as an educational corridor with IIT and NIFT coming up here after NLU and Ayurved University.

However, a few locals are not happy as government, in its tender payment has so far set the compensation amount equivalent to the DLC rate of the area, which is from Rs 1.20 to 2 lakh. The final compensation will, however, depend upon the final award report to be submitted by the administration after hearing all objections and claims.

Apart from this acquisition process, there was a massive stir in the land prices in vicinity of these three villages, which are dominated by Rajputs. According to a property dealer, the prices were hardly close to Rs 1.5 to 2.5 lakh per bigha before the IIT was announced here. But when the news spread about the location being suitable for the IIT, the prices escalated between Rs 5 and 10 lakh per bigha. He said that land up to 5 km beyond the IIT site has already been sold and today no land is available there.

The former sarpanch of village Ghadaw, Chatra Singh said, "This is a matter of delight for us. Earlier the villagers were sceptical but the rise in the DLC rates of land and administration's assurance of 30% premium on it or development of the region is what they all are attracted to."

But given the rise in the prices, they are expecting higher returns. On the other hand the villagers have example of National Law University and Rajasthan Ayurved University, which did not bring much development in the region. A social worker in the region, Hanuman Singh said, "We had thought that selection of the road for the Ayurved University will bring much needed development in the region but it did not happen, only land prices rose, which has activated the land mafia here."

He added that all activities will remain within the campus and villagers will not benefit from it. However, those with land in the area which has not come under acquisition drive are happy as they are assured of higher returns.

ONGC proposes to set up Rs 650 cr wind power project in Rajasthan

Quote:
NEW DELHI: State-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) proposes to invest Rs 650 crore to set up a wind power project in Rajasthan.

"ONGC proposes to set up 102 megawatt (MW) capacity wind power project in Rajasthan at an estimated cost of Rs 650 crore," Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Jitin Prasada said in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha.

The average annual generation would be in the range of 200-210 million units (one unit is equal to one kilowatt hour).

ONGC is also examining the feasibility of setting up a 501-MW grid connected solar power photovoltaic (PV) project in Gujarat and Rajasthan and some of its own installations.

"No time limit has been fixed to finalise the project. However, it would be ONGC's endeavour to finalise the project at the earliest," he said.

To a separate question, Prasada said ONGC recently approved development of Cluster-7 and WO-Cluster oil and gas fields in the western offshore.

"The estimated in place crude oil reserves in Cluster-7 and WO-Cluster are 35.91 million tonnes and 15.71 million tonnes, respectively and in place natural gas reserves in both the fields are 4.53 billion cubic meter and 15.91 bcm respectively," he said.

ONGC, he said, has drawn up a plan for improved oil recovery (IOR) and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects in 15 major fields, including Mumbai High.

The IOR schemes in Mumbai High North, Mumbai High South, Heera Part-1, Neelam, Heera Part-II oil and gas fields of western offshore, Gandhar, North Kadi Phase-I and II, Jotana Sobhasan, Santhal and Kalol fields in Gujarat have been completed.

"The facilities have been created for EOR schemes in Sanand, Balol and Santhal (fields) in Guajrat," he said. "The work for other IOR schemes namely Lakwa, Geleki and Rudrasagar (fields) have already commenced."

Many job-oriented projects on anvil for Rajasthan: Anand Sharma

Quote:
Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma on Saturday announced a slew of projects for Rajasthan, including India’s first national manufacturing and investment zone and a Rs. 100 crore footwear design centre.

“Rajasthan will be the first State to have National Manufacturing and Investment Zone (NMIZ), along with the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC),” Sharma said after meeting Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot here.

The Centre has floated a concept paper on the proposed NMIZs, which will be mega-industrial towns with integrated infrastructure.

Sharma was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan.

“Integrated industrial development will take place in the region with NMIZ and DMIC. Right from power projects to educational institutions, entire infrastructure will come up in this region in future,” he told reporters.

The USD 90 billion DMIC project would run in six States along the dedicated freight corridor of the Railways.

The minister also said that an Industrial Infrastructure Up-gradation Centre will be set up, possibly along the DMIC.

He also said that a Footwear Design and Development Institute (FDDI) for specialised training will be set up at Jodhpur at an estimated cost of Rs. 100 crore and a Rs. 15 crore spice park at Ramganj Mandi.

“The Planning Commission has given an in-principle nod to set up FDDI in Jodhpur and its funding pattern will be finalised soon. A spice park will also be set up in Ramganjmandi of Kota district due to the availability of big volume of processing, packaging and export units,” he said.

The Centre also plans to assist the State government in the establishment of about 100 ornamental fish breeding units in fives districts of the State.

He said the projects would generate employment.

Sharma said that a decision has been taken to start skill training initiatives on a big scale in the State. “The pilot project will be in Bhiwari, which would be operational in April, 2011,” he said.

In this regard, a skill development centre will be set up by industry chamber CII in collaboration with the State government.

The Commerce and Industry Minister further said the Coffee Board will organise a Trade Fair in Jaipur in October and will also train people on roasting and grinding coffee.

In addition, the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) will set up another pack -house at Bassi for export of vegetables from Rajasthan.

First of its kind aerial spraying of seeds on hills

Quote:
JODHPUR: Jodhpur Municipal Corporation (JMC) has undertaken a project to make the hills around the city green. Cashing in on the rainy season, the corporation has decided to go for aerial spraying of seeds of the local flora on these hills. The mayor, Rameshwer Dadhich flagged off the seed-laden helicopter from the Air Force station in Jodhpur on Tuesday afternoon. This initiative is a part of Green Jodhpur campaign launched by JMC.

Dadhich said that under the ambitious mission launched by chief minister Ashok Gehlot, Harit Rajasthan, this unique plan has been undertaken, where 1,320 kg of seeds of Israeli and local Julie flora, wild grass, mopen and a local desert fruit Kumat' worth Rs 1.2 lakh were spread on the five major hills around the city spread across the area of 21 km.

"We are expecting at least 40-50% success and that would be enough to make these hills green in the next 2-3 years", said Dadhich. Central Arid Zone Research Institute (CAZRI) has provided the seeds. CAZRI was also consulted for selection of seeds for the purpose. Dadhich said that it is an unprecedented step and everybody will imitate Jodhpur for this initiative.

The corporation had approached Air Force to provide a helicopter for aerial spraying of seeds about a month back. The sanction came only a week back.

P. Ramesh, CEO of JMC said it is a novel idea to make the environs around the city green and has never been thought of earlier. "We are proud to carry out such exercise for the first time in the country", he said.

the start of groundbreaking for units 7 and 8 of the Rajasthan Atomic Power Projects

Quote:
A ceremony has been held to mark the start of groundbreaking for units 7 and 8 of the Rajasthan Atomic Power Project (RAPP) in India. First concrete is scheduled to be poured at the site before the end of the year.

Excavation work started at the site on 19 August, Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) reported. Approval to start the work had been granted the previous day by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB).


RAPP 7 and 8 will be 700 MWe indigenously designed pressurized heavy water reactors (PHWRs). The pouring of first concrete for the units is planned for December, after excavation works have been completed. The reactors are scheduled to begin commercial operation in June and December 2016, respectively. The estimated cost of constructing the two units is put at Rs 123.2 billion ($2.6 billion).

In May, Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) was awarded an Rs 8880 million ($188 million) contract by NPCIL to undertake main plant civil works of RAPP 7 and 8. HCC has constructed all six existing units at RAPP, which are also PHWRs of varying sizes, the first of which began operating in 1973 and the latest earlier this year.

The Indian government gave the go-ahead for the construction of RAPP 7 and 8 in October 2009. At the same time, it approved the construction of two further 700 MWe PHWRs at Kakrapar in Gujarat state. According to NPCIL, excavation work has now been completed for the two units at Kakrapar and the company is awaiting approval from the AERB to begin pouring concrete. The Kakrapar site already hosts two 220 MWe PHWRs, which entered commercial operation in 1993 and 1995, respectively. The larger Kakrapar units 3 and 4 are due to start operating in 2012.

Rajasthan to become self-reliant in power production by 2015

Quote:
JODHPUR: In another five years, Rajasthan will become self-reliant in power production and may even produce surplus electricity. This was stated by S K Kalla, chairman and managing director of Rajasthan State Vidhyut Utpadan Nigam Limited ( RVUNL). Currently, the state is purchasing electricity at a higher price from other states. A number of power projects are under progress in the state with a total production capacity of 8800 MW.

Talking to the reporters during his visit to Jodhpur, Kalla said the government has sanctioned eight projects in the state with a production capacity of 7750 MW under 12th Five Year Plan. Six super thermal power stations with a production capacity of 660 MW are proposed in Suratgarh and Chabra. Besides, four more such power stations with similar capacity are proposed to be set up in Kalisindh and Banswara.

Along with this, thermal power stations with a capacity of 330 MW each are also proposed to be set up in Chabra and Kota before 2015. The permission for this has been given in principal, Kalla said. Apart from this, three power plants at Chabra, Kalisindh and Ramgarh are to be commissioned with a total production capacity of 1860 MW by 2011-12.

"We are exploring all sources of energy available in the state. We have proposed two gas-based power plants with a capacity of 160 MW and 330 MW which are to be set up in Ramgarh and Dhaulpur respectively. Private companies have also been given permission to set up their power plants in the state," he said.

Focusing on the rich deposits of lignite in the state, two lignite-based power plants with 250 MW capacity each will be set up in Barsinghsar of Bikaner by the Neyveli Lignite Corporation. Similarly, Rajwest Power has already started production in Jalipa Kapuradi in Barmer, which has a capacity to produce 135 MW. This plant is also lignite-based. Seven more units with the similar production capacity are to be commissioned later, he said.

Two more private players have been given permission to set up power plants in Banswara and Keshoraipatan. Ramgarh will also have two gas-based power plants by private players. Kalla assured that once all these projects are complete, Rajasthan will not only be in a position to meet the state's power demand but will also be in a position to produce surplus electricity.
