Govt strikes a mega land deal in Dholera SIR

Gandhinagar The state government is set to ink its biggest-ever land deal this year-end in the Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) where it will offer to sell 2,31,90,749 square metres (approximately 2,376 hectares) of land to three private firms for nearly Rs 927 crore.
Dholera, about 140 km from Ahmedabad, is the first notified SIR in the state.

The state government has issued offer letters to three firms which had signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the state government at the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investor Summit (VGGIS) of 2009 for sale of approximately 2,376 hectares of government land.

The Dholera Special Investment Region Development Authority (DSIRDA) issued these offer letters to the firms on October 12 this year and asked them to pay the amount by December 2011.
The three firms are: Greater Dholera Infracon Pvt Ltd, part of Singapore-based Universal Success Enterprise Ltd Group, which has been asked to pay Rs 159.81 crore for the first phase (approximate area of 399 hectares) and Rs 313.50 crore for the second phase (approximate area of 809 hectares), Hindustan Construction Company Ltd, which has been asked to pay Rs 154. 22 crore for the first phase (approximate area of 419 hectares) and Rs 139.04 crore for the second phase (approximate area of 347 hectares), and Sabeer Bhatia’s company Nano Works Developer Gujarat Pvt Ltd, which has been asked to pay Rs 48.24 crore for the first phase (approximate area of 120 hectares) and Rs 112.80 crore for the second phase (approximate area of 282 hectares).

The State Special Investment Region Authority has cleared the offer letters by the DSIRDA.
These three firms have pledged to invest more than Rs 1 lakh crore in the Dholera SIR and provide employment to around 1 lakh people.
As per the offer made by the DSIRDA, the companies have to pay stamp duty and premium, registration fee etc. as per the norms set by the state revenue department for the allotment of government land for the SEZs.

In six months from the date of possession of land, the companies will have to get approved the development plans and maps as per the DSIRDA’s General Development Control and Regulation failing which they will be liable to pay new rates.

The companies have to start construction in six months after getting nod from the authorities and will have to complete 90 per cent of construction within a year. If these fail to do any development within two years after taking possession of the land, the government can withdraw the allotment.

Auto majors avoid flood-prone Dholera SIR

Tata Motors, Ford, Peugeot and now Maruti Udyog Ltd, all preferred to stay away from the Gujarat government’s most ambitious project — Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) — despite the state’s every effort to attract these auto majors.


While Tata, Ford and Peugeot opted for the little known city of Sanand, the biggest Indian car manufacture, Maruti Udyog, will park in another back-of-the-beyond town of Becharaji in Mehsana district.



There are many less known and small companies who have also avoided to go in Dholera SIR area, one of the reasons being that they find the land unsuitable and flood prone, which increases cost of land filling and safety of plants during natural disasters etc.


A highly placed official in the state industry department involved in negotiations with these auto majors told The Indian Express, “The government notified the Dholera SIR in early 2009 and marketed heavily on all forums as the most preferred industrial destination. But no serious company is ready to come here at this moment because of topographical reasons. The whole area is low-lying and most of the years witnesses heavy flood during monsoon. So all the major companies have said no to Dholera SIR after their suitable location analysis.”

What a way to take positive news for Gujarat and make it seem like negative news... its hardly as if these projects ended up in Tamil Nadu or Maharashtra.

Anyway

Govt starts again on Rs 2800cr 6-lane expressway

Quote:
The state government is planning a Rs 2,800-crore project for constructing the state’s first six-lane express highway between Ahmedabad-Dholera-Bhavnagar.

The project was first announced in March 2010 by the state Road and Buildings Minister Anandiben Patel during the Budget session. The estimated cost for the project then was Rs 2,200 crore.

Sources in the state government said, “The state government has planned 110 km long expressway between Ahmedabad and Bhavnagar via Sarkhej-Pipali-Dholera on high priority basis considering the possibility of development in Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) after two years of delay. Work of land acquisition is in progress.

Government has decided to start the project before May 2012. It has also approved Dakor-Savalia, Vadodara-Dabhoi, Surat-Olpad and Surat-Bardoli four-lane state highways on Public Private Partnership model. Chirai-Anjar road in Kutch has also got sanction. Suigam-Sindhada border area highway would be constructed under Government of India scheme,” sources said.

The report AAI claimed would take 6months to prepare in March 2010 has eventually been completed, ie 20months in total.

Info showed up on the latest DMIC status report for Nov 2011 (link)

Now, finally, application for clearance from MoEF has been made.

I dont know what this is, it could be salt pans but they are sort of different and there are no salt pans around Dholera. See the imagery and give your views. The imagery is of around mid 2010.

Silt

I recall going reading about this area a while back.

First, a quick history. The Brits apparently denuded the forested areas of Rajasthan, near the Dhaber talao which is the source of Sabarmati river. Subsequently, during the monsoon the lack of forest cover contributed both to the drying of Sabarmati river and silting of the historical Dholera port.

I am not sure if the ecological destruction can be reversed ( in Rajasthan) but were that to occur, one might expect water to flow again in Sabarmati.

My uneducated guess is that if a channel for outflow of rain water were constructed, this land would be viable. Of course, the possibility of rising sea levels in Gulf of Khambat also need to be considered.

Sorry if its a disappointment, but these are definitely salt pans. High salinity of soil in the area one reason it was selected for the project as much of the land it is almost useless as farmland.

A lot of the land near Dholera, especially the coastal stretch is low-lying and submerged by sea for part of the year (hence salt production). All of that land comes under CRZ and cannot be developed on.

Detailed land use plan is available here, but is a very large file, so beware if bandwith is low! (pdf 9mb!!)

Screenshot of the same approx area you were looking at, Dholera-Rahtalav, light blue indicates CRZ.

I really dont think that "history" is correct, but even if true, its irrelevent as Kalpasar project will mean that no Ports will exist north of Bhavnagar/Dahej on either side of Gulf of Khambhat.

Sea-level and low-lying ground have been considered to decide on CRZ land as seen above.

Indias first Special Investment Region to come up in Gujarat

Quote:
With the first two phases of town planning and zonation completed this month, the country’s first special investment region (SIR) at Dholera in Gujarat is set to take off. The endeavour in Ahmedabad district is likely to bring investment amounting to $90 billion to the western state over the next ten years.

To be created around the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) with financial cooperation from Japan, the project has already attracted attention — not just for its unique land acquisition model, but also for the financial and investment opportunities it will represent. A delegation of 150 senior management-level Japanese investors engaged in business ranging from manufacturing to banking to trading and logistics will be in Ahmedabad this Thursday to assess opportunities in what will be the world’s first real smart city.

An SIR is different from an SEZ (special economic zone) —it is bigger and is not merely export-oriented; instead offers a range of services. In Dholera, for instance, a residential city to grow vertically based on digital planning will coexist with industrial estates, a hub of financial and banking services and educational institutions.

Dholera — an ancient port-city in the Gulf of Khambhat — has benefited from its location. It is largely arid, saline land, where agriculturists have no pangs in parting with their land because farming is so difficult. The government has acquired land after three rounds of intensive consultations with landowners. Even then, it could acquire only 50 per cent of the land needed. The rest is still with the farmer who can, after it appreciates in value, either sell it to developers outright, or claim a share in its development later, or sell it to government. “This model will avoid situations like (western Uttar Pradesh’s) Bhatta Parsaul,” said Gujarat Resident Commissioner Bharat Lal. “There farmers got compensation for the land they lost owing to acquisition, but the government later sold it to developers at very much higher rates. This gave the farmers the feeling of being cheated.”

When finally completed, the SIR will span 903 sq km on both sides of the DMIC. Almost two-thirds of the proposed investments in the DMIC project is expected to take place in Gujarat alone. The identified industrial nodes will be developed as global manufacturing and commercial hubs. All kinds of infrastructure both within and outside the nodes will be developed to global standards. The biggest strength of Gujarat is its long coastline and operational major and minor ports on it. The goods manufactured in the DIMC Industrial nodes can be exported through Gujarat ports. The imported goods from the Gujarat ports could also be sent more efficiently to the northern Indian hinterland through a dedicated freight corridor (DFC).

But there lies the rub. While the DMIC — the Gujarat leg — is being developed at supersonic speed, the DFC is lagging way behind, crippled by issues of coal linkages, land acquisition and planning problems. Infrastructure experts say Dholera might become a showcase Indian city. But no one will go there if there is no means to run trains to and from it.

That is a problem the Gujarat government is grappling with as well. But in the meantime, work on Dholera is going on apace. British infrastructure development Halcrow was contracted as the master planners. Cisco and IBM have got the contract to develop Dholera as a smart city. This means, it will have a centralised digital control of all infrastructural facilities such as water, power and gas traffic through an underground sensor system reporting to a central control room.

DMIDC said it would be hard to create such modern systems in existing cities, because you would then have to dig up roads. “With this system in place, for instance, no one who lives in Dholera will ever get stuck in a traffic jam,” pointed out DMIDC chief Amitabh Kant. “For, the system will automatically sense where traffic is being held up. It will ask travellers via SMS to avoid certain roads. There can be no theft or wastage of water or power, because the advanced systems will assess how much water and power you actually use.”

Some infrastructure experts believe the whole model is flawed. Even as they concede that Gujarat is the most ready for DMIC, they say the city’s planning approach to DMIC is wrong — in the absence of freight facilities. But the Gujarat government is bullish about the project that represents unprecedented state-Centre cooperation regardless of political differences.
Realistically, biggest problems with Western DFC are in UP/Maharashtra (link) Phase I of the DFC (Rewari, Haryana to Vadodara) doesnt seem to be as problematic a stretch.

As long as linkages were made to the Ports (and Dholera), surely Gujarat would stand to gain more than if the whole DFC was built, as it would have a freight advantage over Maharashtra, therefore pretty much a monopoly for NW hinterland.

Salt pans for sure!

I am sure that even if part of the DFC was build not considering Maha and UP then there will still be a significant amount of freight movement on there. And like you said if the ports are all good to go and dholera is up and running, gujarat will gain from that for sure.

I recall the Gazette of Bombay describing silting way back in 1870's or so. Not sure exactly what Kalpasar will end up looking like but there are several rivers that drain in the Gulf and that will still have to be accounted for.

Still a good idea to convert that corner into a fresh-water lake of sorts!

Work ?? Any ground activities commenced? Unfortunately, unlike GIFT city, we wont get on-site updates till the media or the govt releases them.

I think Dholera is still hidden under wraps for most people. It is almost 400 times bigger than GIFT yet there is no anticipation among people regarding this megaproject.

ગુજરાતના આ સ્થળે આકાર લેશે વિશ્વની પ્રથમ સ્માર્ટ સિટી!
http://business.divyabhaskar.co.in/a...n-2759275.html

ગુજરાતમાં ધોલેરા ખાતે આકાર લઇ રહેલા દેશના સૌપ્રથમ સ્પેશ્યલ ઇન્વેસ્ટમેન્ટ રિજીયન (સર)નું પ્રથમ બે તબક્કાનું કામ આ મહિનામાં પૂર્ણ થઇ જશે. અમદાવાદ જિલ્લામાંથી પ્રયાસ થઇ રહ્યો છે કે પશ્ચિમી રાજ્યમાં આવતા દસ વર્ષમાં 90 અબજ ડોલરનું રોકાણ લાવવાની શક્યતા છે.

ગુજરાતમાં દિલ્હી-મુંબઇ ઇન્ડસ્ટ્રીયલ કોરિડોર (ડીએમઆઇસી) જાપનના નાણાંકીય સહકાર સાથે આકાર લઇ રહ્યો છે. આ પ્રોજેક્ટે તમામ લોકોનું ધ્યાન ખેંચ્યું છે. માત્ર જમીન સંપાદનના મોડલને લઇને જ નહીં પરંતુ નાણાંકીય અને રોકાણની પણ ઘણી તકો ત્યાં હાજર છે.

તેના અંતર્ગત સીનિયર મેનેજમેન્ટ લેવલના 150 જાપાનીઝ ડેલિગેશન રોકાણની તકો માટે ગુરૂવારે અમદાવાદની મુલાકાતે આવી રહ્યા છે. ડેલિગેશનમાં મેન્યુફેકચરિંગ થી બેકિંગ અને ટ્રેડિંગથી લઇને લોજિસ્ટિક સુધીના લોકો મુલાકાત લઇ રહ્યા છે. તેઓ 'સર' દુનિયાનું સૌપ્રથમ રિઅલ સ્માર્ટ સીટી બની જશે તેની તકો પણ ચર્ચા કરશે.

'સર' સ્પેશ્યલ ઇકોનોમી ઝોન (એસઇઝેડ) કરતાં અલગ જ છે, અહીંથી ફક્ત નિકાસ કરવાનો જ હેતુ નથી. પરંતુ તેની જગ્યાએ ઘણી બધી સર્વિસ પૂરી પડાશે. ધોલેરામાં ડિજીટલ પ્લાનિંગની સાથે રહેણાંક શહેર, ઔદ્યોગિત એસ્ટેટસની સાથો સાથ ફાઇનાન્સિયલ હબ અને બેકિંગ સર્વિસ તેમજ એજ્યુકેશનન ઇન્સ્ટિટ્યૂશન પણ અહીં જોવા મળશે.

903 કિલોમીટર લાંબા ડીએમઆઇસી પ્રોજેક્ટનો મોટો હિસ્સો એટલે કે ત્રીજા ભાગનો ગુજરાતમાંથી પસાર થઇ રહ્યો છે, તેમાંય ખાસ કરીને સર સાથે વધુ કનેક્ટ થશે.

ઉલ્લેખનીય છે કે ધોલેરાને સ્માર્ટ સિટી બનાવાનો કોન્ટ્રાક્ટ સિસ્કો અને આઇબીએમને મળ્યો છે. એટલે કે સેન્ટ્રલાઇઝસ ડિજીટલ કંટ્રોલની સાથો સાથ પાણી, પાવર અને ગેસની સગવડની સાથો સાથ અંડરગ્રાઉન્ડ સેન્સર સીસ્ટમ રિપોર્ટિંગ વગેરેની પણ સુવિધા ઉપલબ્ધ કરાવાશે.

Old news, HAL zooms in on Gujarat for a flying start for new plant

Public sector giant Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is likely to set up its Rs 4,000-crore light combat helicopter manufacturing facility in Gujarat.

Top sources in the state government said HAL was “seriously considering” the option and senior company officials have already inspected several locations in the state and met top state officials.

Sources said HAL has asked for 600 hectares of land for the plant and the state government has suggested some locations around Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) and also Sanand near Ahmedabad.

The company is reportedly keen on Dholera as location since a new international airport is to come up there, which could aid its further expansion plans for aircraft plants in the future.

HAL has sought special concessions in land prices and the state government has assured of all possible concessions under the mega projects category as per the State Industrial Policy of 2009, the sources said.

“HAL is also exploring options and considering the concessions offered to them in others states, but their prime requirement is immediate possession of land since they intend to kick off the project by October-November 2011. As the state government has already earmarked land for Dholera SIR and since there is plenty of government land available as well in the SIR, the company has been assured of land as soon as it signs the MoU,” sources added.

A senior HAL official in the proposed project team said the company was keen to start it at the earliest.

Is anybody knows, whats happen after that ?

A tram in Dholera?

One of the most ambitious urban development projects of the Government of Gujarat- Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR)-may join the club of Indian cities that experimented with tram transport, as the government is planning to connect commercial, residential and industrial areas of the proposed city through the same.

At present, Kolkata is the only city in India to have tram transport. Earlier, six more cities namely Delhi, Mumbai, Patna, Kanpur, Chennai and Nasik used this transport system, but with time it became unviable and was discontinued.

The proposed tram transport project is divided in three lines as per future demand- Blue, Green and Yellow. The green line is planned to link proposed industrial and mixed land use areas and may connect the western part of the new city to the eastern part over the expressway. The yellow line will be instrumental in connecting main business areas with railway and bus stations of present Dholera town, while the blue line will be covering central business district and run southwards through industrial and residential areas of DSIR.

There will be nearly 110 stations on the whole route. Average distance between each station is to be approximately one km. The entire length of the tram route will be around 100 km, said a senior official in Urban Development Department (UDD).

According to another official, the public transport system becomes viable only when it is planned according to the land use pattern in the city. This is why, he said, the high capacity tram network in Dholera SIR has been proposed to connect densely populated residential areas with employment generating industrial areas as well as with proposed main trading areas.

Each tram is likely to have two cabs with carrying capacity of 100-120 commuters. The frequency of trams will depend on peak and non-peak hours. "The frequency should match the demand. It should be such that people will be encouraged to use public transport, and at the same time take care the transport body does not incur losses," said sources in UDD.

When the world has gone till bullet trains and Maglev, why do they want to bring trams back, and that too in a futuristic city?

They are good to have for inner city transport, like BRTS. Also they could be futuristic like the tram in Melbourne.
