सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यू होणार ‘एक्स्प्रेस वे’

म.टा. विशेष प्रतिनिधी, नागपूर

शहराच्या मध्यभागातून जाणारा आणि पूर्व व पश्चिमेला जोडणारा सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यू सिमेंट काँक्रिटचा सुपर एक्स्प्रेस वे होणार आहे. केंद्राने त्यासाठी प्रस्ताव मागितल्यानंतर त्याचे काम युद्धपातळीवर सुरू झाले. सुमारे २०० कोटी रुपयांचा हा रस्ता राहील. रिझर्व्ह बँक चौक ते पारडी नाक्यापर्यंत हा रस्ता करण्यात येणार आहे. यात अग्रसेन चौकात उड्डाणपूल राहील. त्यासाठी केंद्राच्या रस्ते निधीतून निधी मिळण्याची शक्यता आहे. केंद्रीय रस्ते वाहतूक मंत्री नितीन गडकरी यांनी सेंट्रल अॅव्हेन्यूचा प्रस्ताव मागवला. त्यांनी या रस्त्यासाठी पुढाकार घेतल्याने सार्वजनिक बांधकाम खाते कामाला लागले आहे.

चार दशकांपूर्वी हा रस्ता झाला. त्यानंतर पूर्ण होण्यास बरीच वर्षे लागली. एक मार्ग चांगला झाला की दुसरा मार्ग म्हणजे खड्डे अशी परिस्थिती नागपूरकरांनी अनुभवली. आता या रस्त्यावर वाहतूक प्रचंड वाढली आहे. शहराचा विस्तार, वाहनांची संख्या आणि पूर्वेकडून पश्चिमकडे जाणाऱ्यांचे प्रमाण वाढल्याने या रस्त्यावरील ताणही वाढला. त्यामुळे ठिकठिकाणी फक्त खड्डेच दिसतात. त्याचा फटका वाहन चालकांना बसतो.

रेल्वे उड्डाणपुलाच्या जागेवर आता केबल स्टेड पूल झाला आहे. या आकर्षक पुलामुळे शहराच्या वैभवात भर पडणार आहे. हा पूल झाला तरी रस्ता जुनाच राहिल्यास त्यामुळे पुलाचे सौंदर्य लपले असते. ही बाब लक्षात घेऊन गडकरी यांनी तातडीने सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यूला नवा लूक देण्यासाठी पावले उचलली आहेत. गेल्याच आठवड्यात त्यांनी रिंग रोडसाठी १९६ कोटी रुपये मंजूर केले. सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यूला मान्यता दिल्यास शहरातील दोन प्रमुख रस्ते ४०० कोटी रुपयांत होतील. तसेच, सदर, रे​सीडेन्सी रोडवर उड्डाणपुलाचीही तयारी सुरू आहे.

'express-way' funny how media doesn't realise there is not scope to make road broader then currently it is.

Also no point digging the road now when Metro is suppose to run over CA. May be once metro is complete they should think of working on road.

Ya that's a good point, it makes sense to get Metro work to begin first.
But I don't know, why they r not planning to phase out the age-old khapri flyover on Wardha road n build a new one. It's common to see traffic jams over there.

this really sounds funny. but as per old observations I don't think the metro work will start soon and only in that case this new road may give some relief to traffic and people.

It may sound odd, but Khapri bridge is relatively recent. If I remember correctly it was built in late 90's and waited 2-3 months for someone to cut ribbon off... I could be mistaken about other bridge.

But still considering the heavy traffic over there, they should definitely plan to increase the capacity to cater ever increasing traffic conditions.

@anuska_bhatt, here are Nagpur and Pune populations over the years (metro region population):

Census/Pune/Nagpur
1981/1,203,351/1,219,500
1991/1,566,651/1,664,000 Nagpur is greater
2001/2,540,069/2,129,500
2011/5,049,968/2,583,911

Source: Wikipedia, Census of India

It is obvious, Pune has seen a boom between 2001-2011, Nagpur was left behind.
Nagpur must be compared to Indore, Mangalore, Mysore... not Mumbai/Pune

Why considering Nagpur like this? This is creating wrong image of our city to another people. Rise in population is due to industrial growth.

If other top institutes can function in Nagpur then why not IIM?

If other top institutes can function in Nagpur then why not IIM?
Jan 15, 2015, 03.53AM IST TNN[ Hemali Chhapia, Vaibhav Ganjapure & Abhishek Choudhari ]

NAGPUR: Ever since Nagpur was named as the location for Maharashtra's first Indian Institute of Management (IIM), other cities that were in contention witnessed large scale protests. Businessmen in Aurangabad demonstrated, while in Mumbai and Pune strong voices were raised to get the prestigious institution there.

Nagpurians, however, feel that the government has taken the right decision in allotting the premier institution to Vidarbha, which has been neglected for many decades, primarily due to government apathy. They believe the decision would not only spur development of the backward region, but also attract industries and faculty.

"The decision was taken to bring about overall development of the entire state. Why should only one region be developed while others remain neglected? Besides, Mumbai and Pune have large number of top institutions and even private universities are opening campuses there. It's high time other areas get such institutions, which is precisely the reason we fought for Gondwana University and also committed to open Maharashtra National Law School/University (MNLS/U), Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) and separate agriculture university in East Vidarbha," finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said.

Apprehensions were raised in some quarters that the Orange city would not get good faculty like in Mumbai and Pune, which have many good private management institutions. However, former EGS minister Nitin Raut believes faculty would automatically come to the city once the institute commences operations. "The city has other national level institutions like VNIT and many outsiders work there. In fact, many from the city are working in other IIMs and are more than willing to work at their native place."

VED vice president Shiv Kumar Rao said there is an entrepreneurial bug in majority of the IIM students and they come up with innovative ideas, which they put into action mostly where they are studying. "If IIM comes to Nagpur, we will witness such entrepreneurs getting into action and hopefully succeeding. This will create a healthy ecosystem in which future entrepreneurs will flourish."

Noted academician and former MCI member Dr Vedprakash Mishra says the government has made the best choice considering that Nagpur is among the fastest emerging cities, and future development would take place here. "Nagpur is the nucleus of Central India and IIM here would also cater to the neighbouring states. The Mumbai-Pune-Nashik corridor is now saturated. It's high time the Nagpur-Amravati-Aurangabad corridor is developed."

The Vidarbha Economic Development (VED) Council, which had first raised the demand for an IIM in 1995, said the city's central location and good rail, road and air connectivity makes it the best destination for the premier institute. "After VNIT, which was set up in 1960, we've never got a quality institute. Lakhs of students leave Vidarbha each year for better opportunities, but with IIM this will certainly change. It will also give an impetus to other educational institutes to raise the bar," said president Devendra Parekh.

Noted hotelier Mohabbat Singh Tuli sees the IIM as a big opportunity to boost tourism industry. "In the star resorts in Pench, foreign tourists often arrive. It will be great for the tourism industry to get IIM graduates to be part of the growth. Even if they start interning it will be mutually beneficial."

One of the arguments raised by other cities is extreme heat in Nagpur, particularly in the summer, which they say will drive away the faculty. However, businessman Arun Upadhayaya refutes these concerns. "If the hot weather is a deterrent then by that logic there should be no educational institutes in Dubai, Muscat and similar places in the world. The climate is worse in Delhi and Mumbai, while we in Nagpur are in fact able to enjoy pleasant weather for a long time."

A senior professor at VNIT endorsed his views, saying that he was from another state but felt at home here. "The city is good in all respects and even the weather is pleasant, except for a couple of months. In fact, I like the greenery and peace in the city."

Speaking about the lifestyle required for IIM, senior academician Neeru Kapai says the city has a cosmopolitan culture and there is no rule saying that all top institutes should come up in Mumbai and Pune. "Nagpur is emerging as an educational hub and it is important that such a prestigious institute comes to the city."

Haldiram Hotels president Vinod Madra added, "Nagpur has a better quality of life than most metros. We've so many options for travel and leisure, which no other city can provide. Nagpur has the perfect setting in which things can develop."

All of them were also unanimous in saying that the IIM has already been declared in Nagpur and there was no point in speaking about drawbacks now, since Nagpurians didn't oppose any major development projects that were shifted to western Maharashtra.

NMRDA वर लवकरच शिक्कामोर्तब

नागपूर शहराच्या विकासात महत्त्वाचा ठरणाऱ्या नागपूर महानगर प्रदेश विकास प्राधिकरणावर (एनएमआरडीए-नागपूर मेट्रोपॉलिटन रिजन डेव्हलपमेंट ऑथॅरिटी) लवकरच शिक्कामोर्तब होण्याची शक्यता आहे. महापालिका व नागपूर सुधार प्रन्यासच्या क्षेत्रात पायाभूत सुविधा उभारण्याची जबाबदारी एनएमआरडीएची राहणार आहे. राज्य शासनाने नुकतीच याबाबत अधिसूचना काढून एनएमआरडीए स्थापन करण्याच्या दिशेने पाऊल उचलले आहे. मात्र, ही केवळ प्राथमिक कार्यवाही असून नागरिकांच्या हरकती, सूचनेनंतरच 'एनएमआरडीए'वर शिक्कामोर्तब होणार असल्याचे उच्चपदस्थ सुत्रांनी सांगितले.

नागपूर शहर महानगराच्या दिशेने वाटचाल करीत असल्याने येथील विकासाला गती देण्यासाठी आता मनपा व नासुप्रसह नागपूर महानगर प्रदेश विकास प्राधिकरणाचाही (एनएमआरडीए-नागपूर मेट्रोपॉलिटन रिजन डेव्हलपमेंट ऑथरिटी) हातभार लागणार आहे. मुख्यमंत्री देवेंद्र फडणवीस यांनी अधिवेशनात नागपूर शहराच्या विकासाला गती देण्यासाठी 'एनएमआरडीए''ची घोषणा केली होती. मुख्यमंत्र्यांनी आश्*वासनपूर्तीच्या दिशेने आगेकूच करीत एमएमआरडीएच्या धर्तीवर एनएमआरडीए स्थापनेसाठी अधिसूचना काढली. मात्र, या अधिसूचनेत अनेक बदल करण्याच्या सूचना राज्य शासनाने केल्या आहे. यासाठी राज्य शासन नागरिकांकडून सूचना, आक्षेप मागविणार आहे. यासाठी पुन्हा अधिसूचना काढण्यात येणार आहे. नागरिकांच्या सूचना व आक्षेप, हरकतीचा विचार करून एनएमआरडीएचे अंतिम स्वरुप निश्*चित केले जाईल, असे उच्चपदस्थ सुत्रांनी सांगितले.

शहरात एनएमआरडीए ही संस्था सुरू झाल्यानंतरही नासुप्र कायम राहणार आहे. मात्र, नासुप्रचे कार्यक्षेत्र केवळ मेट्रोरिजन राहणार आहे. शहरात महापालिका तर शहराबाहेर नासुप्र, अशी जबाबदारी राहणार आहे. या दोन्ही संस्थांच्या क्षेत्रात पायाभूत विकासाची जबाबदारी एनएमआरडीएकडे राहणार आहे. मुंबईत ज्याप्रमाणे उड्डाणपूल, रुंद रस्ते आदी विकासात्मक कामांची जबाबदारी एमएमआरडीएकडे आहे, अगदी त्याचप्रमाणे शहरातील पायाभूत सुविधा तसेच मोठ्या प्रकल्पांची जबाबदारी एनएमआरडीएकडे राहणार आहे. महापालिकेत मोठे प्रकल्प उभारण्यासाठी तज्ज्ञ अधिकाऱ्यांचा अभाव आहे. त्यामुळे महापालिकेचे अनेक प्रकल्प आतापर्यंत रेंगाळत आहेत. त्यामुळे सद्यस्थितीत शहरातील बहुतांश मोठ्या प्रकल्पांची जबाबदारी नासुप्रवर आहे. नासुप्रवर शहराभोवतालच्या मेट्रोरिजनचीही जबाबदारी आहे. दोन जबाबदाऱ्यामुळे मेट्रोरिजन प्रकल्पाकडे दुर्लक्ष होत आहे. एनएमआरडीएमुळे नासुप्रला पूर्ण वेळ मेट्रोरिजनवर लक्ष केंद्रित करणे शक्*य होणार आहे. महापालिकेलाही नासुप्रचा अडथळा राहणार नसून अविकसित ले-आऊटमध्ये विकास कामे करण्याचा मार्ग मोकळा होणार आहे.

Nagpur IIM can benefit from tie up with Hong Kong University, opines Academic with Vidarbha origins

Nagpur: Even before an Indian Institute of Management could come up in the state , heads of several business schools have slammed the government’s decision to “gift” it to Nagpur. The location of the institute will determine its future, say experts.

“An IIM in Mumbai or Pune will take it to the level of the IIM-A in about a decade. But if there is political interference right from the start about the location of the institute, then the very first step is in the wrong direction,” says a former IIM director.

“The location for an IIM matters immensely. At odd places, it is difficult to get visiting faculty from the industry to travel to the campus,” says IIM-Trichy head Prafulla Agnihotri. ”

Even though some academicians are reportedly unhappy over Nagpur getting a centre, there are many in city who make a strong case for one. Local business management colleges are in fact pitching for the biggest competition they could ever get, more vocally than others.

Nagpur Today got a open letter from Israr Qureshi, professor at Management School in Hong Kong, originally from Chandrapur (Maharashtra) who suggests China-centred studies for the proposed IIM at Nagpur.

Below is the letter of Mr. Quershi:
I am professor at Management School in Hong Kong . I am originally from Chandrapur (Maharashtra).

I am writing you in connection with recent announcement of starting IIM at Nagpur. I am excited to learn that finally there will be a world class institution of management education in Nagpur.

I have three management degrees from three continents (MBA in General Management from India, MBA in eBusiness and IT from Netherlands, and PhD in Business Administration from Canada). I have taught management students in Canada and Hong Kong, and I regularly visit premier institutions globally as well in India. I have conducted workshops and research seminars at Indian School of Business, and several IIMs (Ahmedabad, Calcutta, Indore, Lucknow, Udaipur) as well as other management institutes in India (BIMTECH, GIM, IMT, MDI, IRMA etc). This have provided me rich insights into management education globally as well as in india.

The central location of Nagpur is suitable for conducting Faculty Development Programs and Research Training Programs for doctoral students. Renowned professors from various global elite institutions can be invited to conduct these workshops. Doctoral students from other IIMs and management schools can attend these workshops due to wonderful air and railways connectivity of Nagpur with other parts of India. I have various other ideas to help improve research credentials of IIM, Nagpur.

Being originally from Vidarbha, I would like to contribute whatever I can to the development of IIM (Nagpur) at its early stage of growth. Some of the possible activities could be

· China Exposure workshop could be held in Hong Kong through PolyU Institute for Entrepreneurship (to which I am associated), where faculty members from Faculty of Business (FB), PolyU, China Industry experts (based out of Hong Kong and Shenzhen), Faculty members of IIM (Nagpur), and Indian Industry experts may take part. This workshop can be held in May-June, 2016 (or at other convenient time). Similar workshop could be held at Nagpur on reciprocal basis (if feasible)

· Faculty of Business, PolyU (FB) may help conduct methodology workshops for PhD students either at PolyU (HK) or at IIM (Nagpur). This will require further discussion. This collaboration can be further extended to Faculty Development Program.

· FB may be able to create a joint supervision scheme where faculty members at FB may jointly supervise (based on available expertise on the research topics) PhD students at IIM (Nagpur). There is also a possibility (depending on approval of the scheme) that these PhD student may be able to visit Hong Kong for six months. PolyU may be able to fund part of their trip and provide some stipend to cover their cost of living in Hong Kong (modalities need to be worked out over time).

· Individual faculty members at FB may travel to IIM (Nagpur) for workshops, short courses, research collaborations etc. This can be done at individual faculty members’ convenience.

· Any other collaboration that IIM (Nagpur) might deem possible and mutually beneficial.
Once again, I am excited that an IIM is opening at Nagpur and would love to do whatever I can to help it become a world class management institute.

Israr Qureshi, Ph.D. (Ivey)

सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यू होणार सिमेंटचा

म.टा. विशेष प्रतिनिधी, नागपूर

इनर रिंग रोडपाठोपाठ पूर्व आणि पश्चिमेला जोडणारा सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यू आता सिमेंट काँक्रिटचा एक्सप्रेस वे करण्यासाठी केंद्राने २२८ कोटी रुपयांच्या प्रस्तावास मान्यता दिली. केंद्रीय रस्ते वाहतूकमंत्री नितीन गडकरी यांच्या प्रयत्नांमुळे उपराजधानीतील दोन प्रमुख रस्त्यांसाठी दोन दिवसांत तब्बल ५२१ कोटी रुपये देण्यास सहमती दर्शवली.

मिहानच्या माध्यमातून आंतरराष्ट्रीय शहराकडे झेपावणाऱ्या नागपूरचा चेहरामोहरा बदलण्यासाठी गडकरी यांनी रस्ते व पुलांसह अनेक प्रकल्पांवर लक्ष केंद्रित केले आहे. पारडी येथे ५०० कोटी रुपयांच्या अंडरब्रिजचे भूमिपूजन पंतप्रधान नरेंद्र मोदी यांच्या हस्ते झाले. त्यापाठोपाठ या दोन रस्त्यांना केंद्राने मान्यता देत निधीची तयारी दर्शवली. त्याचप्रमाणे सोमलवाडा, सदर या भागातही उड्डाणपुलाचे प्रस्ताव तयार करण्यात येत आहेत. गडकरी यांनी दिवाळीच्या काळात सेंट्रल एव्हेन्यूचा प्रस्ताव पाठवण्याची सूचना राज्य सरकारला केली. त्यानुसार सार्वजनिक बांधकाम विभागाने युद्धपातळीवर प्रस्ताव तयार करून तातडीने केंद्राकडे पाठवला. यास केंद्राने २२८ कोटी २३ लाख ७३ हजार ८१३ रुपयांच्या प्रस्तावास प्रशासकीय मान्यता दिली. संविधान चौक ते पारडीपर्यंतचा रस्ता आहे. संविधान चौक ते पारडी नाक्यापर्यंत हा रस्ता करण्यात येणार आहे. यात अग्रसेन चौकात वाहतुकीची कोंडी टाळण्यासाठी गोळीबार चौक ते फवारा चौकापर्यंत उड्डाणपूल करण्याचा प्रस्ताव आहे. त्यामुळे वाहतूक सुरळीत होण्यास मदत होईल. सुमारे चार दशकांपूर्वी हा रस्ता झाला. तो पूर्ण होण्यास अनेक वर्षे लागली. एक मार्ग चांगला झाला की दुसरा मार्ग म्हणजे खड्डे अशी परिस्थिती नागपूरकरांनी अनुभवली. गेल्या दोन दशकांत या रस्त्यावरील वाहतूक अनेक पटींनी वाढली आहे. शहराचा विस्तार, वाहनांची संख्या आणि पूर्वेकडून पश्चिमकडे जाणाऱ्यांचे प्रमाण वाढल्याने या रस्त्यावर वाहतुकीचा भार वाढला. परिणामी या रस्त्याने शहराच्या वैभवात भर पडण्याऐवजी ठिकठिकाणी फक्त खड्डेच दिसतात. त्याचा त्रास वाहन चालकांना सहन करावा लागत आहे. ऐतिहासिक रेल्वे उड्डाण पुलाच्या जागेवर आता केबल स्टेड पूल झाला आहे. या आकर्षक पुलामुळे शहराच्या वैभवात भर पडली. आता नवीन रस्ता होणार असल्याने त्यामुळे 'एक्सप्रेस वे'चा लूक येईल.

Stop comparing Pune to Nagpur... the cities are worlds apart.
Pune has a real estate market even greater than Kolkata and Ahmedabad (source Knight Frank RE Outlook 2015) and is ranked sixth... well on its way to overtake Ahmedabad.
Where is Nagpur???
Why compare Nagpur to Pune which is one of the 'big 8'? Pitch it against Indore, raipur, etc..

I was in Pune recently... it feels like its five times whatever Nagpur is! It has that big-city feel (and the worst traffic) with the full package... five star hotels everywhere (3 Marriotts!), world-class dining, a turf club, and an entire global and cosmopolitan culture unseen in nagpur.

On a side note, I don't think any Indian city other than New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad needs a metro. Improve bus services, build BRTS coz there is space in nagpur. This two-bit metro will be a toy running along a route with artificially increased population density (4fsi)
DMRC knows there in insufficient demand, so they want to bump fsi to 4.

Think about this....
You want to build a metro to cater to high demand, or do you want high demand to justify a metro?

Govt in talks with Flipkart for e-commerce hub in Nagpur: CM

NAGPUR: With Devendra Fadnavis at the helm of the state, the long-awaited development process of Vidarbha has kick-started. Addressing youngsters on Saturday during the Youth Empowerment Summit, Fadnavis announced that talks were underway with e-commerce giants like Flipkart to set up an e-commerce logistic hub in Nagpur. The CM had already announced setting up of state's first Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in the city.

The event was organized by Vidarbha Fortune Foundation (VFF) at Divisional Commissioner's complex at Mankapur. Union surface transport minister Nitin Gadkari, guardian minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, former MP Datta Meghe and VFF chairman Anil Sole shared the dais.

"Nagpur, due to its geographic location as the centre of the country, is capable of being a large logistic hub. It will surely bring in huge employment opportunities to Vidarbha," Fadnavis said.

Citing a report of National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) which said only 25% of graduates are directly employable after passing out from the college, the chief minister stressed the need for skill development in the region. "It's not water, electricity or land that industries want, what is required is human resource and skilled labour. To bring in employment, a value chain in agriculture is being formed from production to marketing. It would not only help farmers to improve their prices but also bring in jobs at all the stages of the chain."

He said that one such value chain is being introduced in agro-processing industry which will provide jobs to over 10 lakh youths by the end of this year. "Nagpur being the tiger capital, tourism industry also needed to flourish and therefore hospitality sector requires a huge manpower," Fadnavis said, asking students to take maximum benefit from this three-day event.

Gadkari highlighted various ways to develop Vidarbha region. "Development of regions should not just be in speeches. Business and industries need to be brought in. For that, power tariff needs to be reduced. As there are ample natural resources, industries will be glad to set up units here which will create employment generation."

He spoke on issues like increasing coal production in the region, making urea from coal and reviving textile industry. He quoted Mahatma Gandhi on maximum production with maximum people as a tool for development and employment generation.

Sole said India is a nation of young people and there is a huge potential in Vidarbha region. He urged the participants to utilize this opportunity.

Bawankule said under his power ministry, 15,000 youths of BE electrical and mechanical engineering will be provided with jobs soon. He added that Mihan will soon be fully operationalized where youth of the region will be employed.

Ajit_nrn I disagree with you.... Why should Nagpur be judged against cities like Indore? If you want things to get moving, compare it with the best.
Anyway, this is a Nagpur discussion thread. Make an I Love Pune thread elsewhere.

I also agree with this. Nagpur has its own value and the world will definitely see it in future. Its true that Pune has something more but Nagpur will also have it in future and being a true Nagpurian we must think better for the city.

IIM yet to get HRD ministry’s ‘in-principle’ nod

Nagpur: Though the Devendra Fadnavis led BJP-Sena government has made Maharashtra's first Indian Institute of Management (IIM) a prestige issue and made wholehearted efforts for setting it up in Nagpur, it's yet to get even the formal or in-principle approval from the HRD ministry. Joint director for technical education in Nagpur Gulab Thakre said on Tuesday that the proposed IIM-Nagpur is yet to receive "any approval" from the ministry.

Principal secretary for higher and technical education Sanjay Chahande confirmed this, adding that a team from the HRD ministry, led by additional secretary Amarjit Sinha, will visit the city on Wednesday to inspect the permanent and makeshift sites for IIM at Mihan and VNIT respectively. The approval process will take place only after this.

Thakre said that the team would inspect the facilities in the afternoon and submit its report by evening. IIM Ahmedabad director Ashish Nanda, chief engineer of Central Public Works Department (CPWD) in city Narendra Kumar, and Chahande would be other members of the team, besides Thakre who will be coordinator for the project.

Interestingly, higher and technical education minister Vinod Tawde had issued a press communique on January 7, detailing his interaction with HRD minister Smiriti Irani and her green signal to the project. The CM also confirmed the development to TOI, but made it clear that the decision was not yet documented.

Tawde even declared that Nagpur IIM was privileged to be mentored by country's top institution - IIM Ahmedabad - and would commence operations from forthcoming (2015-16) academic session.

But Thakre's revelation raises a serious question mark on the government's claims on commencing IIM's operations from July. Though IIM Nagpur was included in the Common Admission Test (CAT), there is nothing on the ground level till date, except two buildings allotted by VNIT. Even appointment of faculty takes months and, in the absence of any approval, this process has not even begun yet.

Thakre said that the ministry has placed requirement of 6,000 sq ft area for starting IIM from temporary facility and 200 acres for the permanent campus. "We will show them two buildings at VNIT which will have 3,000-4,000 sq ft area. Additionally, they have 10,000 sq ft of parking space, which we hope will satisfy their requirements. These facilities are sufficient to start a batch of 60 students initially," he said.

Officials are sceptical about the IIM's fate stating that actual picture would become clear only after March when union finance minister Arun Jaitley presents the budget.

Earlier union minister for state for HRD Ramshankar Katheria said that the government would first focus on existing IIMs and IITs started by the Congress-led government that were still grappling with the problems like land, buildings and faculty shortage.

IIM Nagpur ready to begin operations from July: MHRD secy

Nagpur: In a positive step for the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Nagpur, a team from the ministry for human resources development (MHRD) made site inspections for the proposed institute on Wednesday and gave a positive feedback, indicating that the premier institution may commence operations from July.

"The permanent as well as makeshift facilities provided by the Maharashtra government are excellent and we are grateful to them. We will file our report to the MHRD within a week and its endorsement is expected by another week. We're expecting a positive decision by February-end," MHRD additional secretary Amarjit Sinha, who headed the panel, told TOI.

IIM-Ahmedabad director Ashish Nanda, chief engineer of Central Public Works Department (CPWD) in city Narendra Kumar, and principal secretary for higher and technical education Sanjay Chahande were other members of the team. They were accompanied by divisional commissioner Anoop Kumar, collector Abhishek Krishna and joint director for technical education in Nagpur Gulab Thakre.

After inspecting makeshift facilities at Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) in the morning, the team visited the permanent campus site at Mouza Dahegaon in non-SEZ area under Mihan that spread over 293 acres.

Sinha added IIM-Ahmedabad director Nanda also seemed to be satisfied with the facilities. "After getting formal approval from MHRD, the team from mentor institute (IIM-A) would guide the Nagpur officials on further set up," he said.

Endorsing him, Thakre said the visitors were impressed with both the sites. "They liked the buildings at VNIT, but expressed concern over the size of classrooms, as they wanted bigger ones. But the VNIT administration assured them that it would take care of this aspect. VNIT officials also expressed willingness to make modifications in the buildings as per requirements," he said.

The MHRD team also interacted with chairman of VNIT Board of Governors Vishram Jamdar and director Narendra Chaudhari during their visit to VNIT. "We told them that we're ready to start the prestigious institution from the forthcoming session and we're ready for any kind of help," Jamdar told TOI.

After inspection of the permanent site, the MHRD team had a meeting with Maharashtra Airport Development Corporation (MADC) officials at incubation centres. "MADC project manager SV Chahande explained them about entire project and companies coming up there. They liked the Mihan site which has a lake in front of it. The MHRD's approval is expected in a couple of weeks after which IIM-A would appoint a nodal officer for coordination and future formalities. The appointment process for faculties and other directors would begin probably by March-end," Thakre said.
