IFC may invest in Tata Power's Mundra project

Quote:
Mumbai: International Finance Corporation will consider a loan of up to $450 million (Rs 1,800 crore) and an equity investment of up to $ 50 million (Rs 200 crore) for Tata Power's Ultra Mega Power Project at Mundra in Gujarat, the institution's web site said.

IFC, the private investment arm of the World Bank, said this would be its first financing of a supercritical plant anywhere in the world.

Additionally, IFC and Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd (the subsidiary of TPC which will handle the project) are exploring the possibility of syndicating up to $300 million in loans, according to the IFC web site.

IFC will consider these proposed investments at its board meeting, tentatively scheduled for March 27 next year.

Tata Power has earlier mentioned IFC among the several multilateral institutions from which it is seeking loans for the project.

Lanxess, Germany to invest Rs 800cr in Gujarat

Quote:
Germany’s Lanxess ABS plans to invest Rs 800 crore to set up a greenfield chemical facility in Gujarat. The company has already acquired 40 acres of land near Jhagadia to set up the ion exchange resin plant, which will come up in the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) estate.

Confirming the development, a senior government official told Business Standard that the company is looking at manufacturing NAOH and HCL gas among other chemicals.

Lanxess, which has interests in performance chemicals, chemicals intermediates, engineering plastics and performance rubber already has manufacturing facilities at Nandesari, Katol and Moxi in south and central Gujarat. Lanxess also has a research and development centre at Moxi

Gujarat and its ports al-Hind


Quote:
It is so easy, and symptomatic of all that is wrong with the Indian media-political circus, to forget the real growth indicators in Gujarat. What both sides of the Indian democracy coin neglect is the state’s amazing infrastructure story. One reason could be that it is easier to pretend that there are two homogeneous masses—Hindus and Muslims—doing nothing but playing games against each other, and set out mathematical models accordingly. But the bigger reason perhaps is that not too many of us are getting down to the real commerce story being played out on the hard ground of road and rail networks (or shipping lines and cargo air freight routes) for a closer look at the realities.

Sitting behind a windscreen in a car or on an airplane seat does not count. One such success story that cuts across all lines has to do with the way seaports and support systems, as well as coastal and inland linkages for handling huge ocean-going ships, are springing up—again—all over the coast of Gujarat. Notice the emphasis on “again”.

These were ports that have existed from Biblical and Mughal times, Hazira/Surat being just one example that finds historical references in sealogs around the world. Okha/Porbandar/Dwarka is another. And then they withered away. Because shipping grew, while these ports didn’t.

The port that grew at their cost was Front Bay. Legit and otherwise, everything started flowed through BomBahia. And with draughts of upto 10 metres, as well as brilliant road and rail linkages for the day, Bombay emerged as the trade fulcrum of India. But then the whole BPT, Pir Pau, Butcher Island, JNPT and environs, including Sahar/CST, stagnated, and those who rule Mumbai forgot that to remain a financial centre, they would need to let the physical part of the port operations move out, as is the trend worldwide. London moved to Thamesport, New York moved to Norfolk, San Francisco moved to Oakland and Tokyo moved to Yokohama when they realised that bringing deep-draught ocean going ships drawing 15-20 metres draught with multi-million tonne cargo linkages through the centre of their cities was not their cup of oil-spill. Maharashtra’s problems, as evident in the current war between the Central and state governments over Mumbai’s ports, has been Gujarat’s gain. It doesn’t help either that the coast south of Mumbai gets a heavy monsoon lashing.

Gujarat is aware of its advantages. This is evident in the “gulf revival”—of Kutch and Khambat. But. Till as recently as the early 1980s, even the emergence of Kandla was resisted by coastline equivalents of the Bombay Club. As a result, the age-old maritime tradition of Gujarat had been reduced to minor fishing and major smuggling. Rail links were absent or metre gauge, and the west coast of India meant Bombay for all shipping purposes. Liberalisation changed all that. Today’s Kandla numbers speak for themselves. This port beats all Mumbai ports put together. Hollow.

Now take an even closer look at every new port on the Gujarat coast. If you can’t go there, then use satellite photos. Small fishing hamlets of a few decades ago have become seaports again, whether with berths alongside or safe anchorages. Listing them all is difficult, because there are over three dozen ports in Gujarat now that can accept deep-draught foreign going ships, and scores more which handle coastal shipping as well as medium sized ships catering to points as far as Singapore on one side and the Persian Gulf, Red Sea, Horn, East and South Africa on the other. They have also breached the Suez, and small ships of assorted flags are reaching into the Levant and the rest of the Med.

And that’s just the legit cargo. For narcotics, arms and flesh, Karachi and Mumbai have long lost their status as trade points. Ask around in the Khandwa region, for example, and learn about the routes in use now.

Gujarat’s re-emergence should be no surprise. Till about 150 years ago, when the British firmed up their subcontinental influence, Gujarat’s ports were bustling with small-draught sail ships. After the industrial revolution, mechanised ships—with draughts of around 5-10 metres—switched to Bombay. Gujarat ports have now jumped technologies, making way for draughts of 12-20 metres.

The difference is vast. Till not too long ago, the India’s west coast would shut down for almost half the year during the monsoons. Even now, new ports along the Maharashtra coast are vulnerable to the rains. Add the perils of “global wierding”, and it is clear why Gujarat is stealing ahead.

And so, where does the Gujarat election fit in here? Whatever the communal configuration, the seaports, airports, railways and roads in Gujarat are fact. And, as always, commerce prevails over religion. The seaports in Gujarat are truly symbolic of this. Yes, the traditional “control” that seafaring Muslims had in the state seems to be giving way. But then, with the commercial stakes so huge, that was not entirely unexpected

Kalpasar Project back on!?!?!?

This is a project that really deserves to be implemented...

According to the website of the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), the perpetually delayed Kalpasar Project has apparently been approved as of 20th June 2007!

PDF File from NEERI

For those who are unaware of the project, it is a multi-purpose plan to provide Fresh Water and Hydro-Electric Energy by building a Dam across the Gulf of Khambhat, from Bhavnagar District to Bharuch District, collecting water from many of the rivers that drain into the Gulf, including the Narmada and Sabarmati.

Road and Rail lines on the Dam will also improve connectivity between the Southern region of the Kathiawad peninsula and the Bharuch/Surat region of Gujarat, vastly cutting travelling times between the areas.

Diagram of Kalpasar Plan:


1) Road and Rail Lines
2) Hydro-Electric Turbines
3) Ship Lock
4) Spillways

Hopefully it actually comes to fruition!

OMG has Medha been notified yet? She and her friends will surely find some problems. If nothing else then at least some "environmental" issues?

This is one of the great projects for SOurahtra region. The journey time will come down by 7to 8hrs from Mumbai to Rajkot, Jamnagar, Bhavnagar cities of Gujarat!

Hope it will come true.

Gandhinagar all set to get a ‘vibrant’ trade centre

PHP Code:
Gandhinagar all set to get a ‘vibrant’ trade centre 
http://www.expressindia.com/latest-n...centre/268502/

Gandhinagar, February 2 In a bid to add an element of corporate culture to the state capital, the Narendra Modi Government has mooted a proposal to create a distinct "Vibrant Gujarat Trade Centre" in Gandhinagar, under which leading industrial houses will be allotted plots of land to construct corporate offices.

In fact, some of the major corporate houses, including Adani Group, Essar, DLF, Reliance, Rahejas and Torrent have already expressed willingness to open their offices at the proposed Centre in Sector 11, a senior official in the State Industries department told Express Newsline on Saturday. The government is developing the area into a commercial zone where at least half-a-dozen business and commercial complexes have already come up.

According to a Government Resolution (GR) issued by the Roads and Building department, the industrial houses wanting to set up their offices at the proposed trade centre will have to form their own society registered under the Registration Act. This society having members from corporate houses will be handed over plots at the prevailing market prices. The government has fixed 1,000 square metres as a minimum ceiling of a plot, and maximum of 10,000 square metres for prospective clients.

The society to be formed by corporate houses will have to create and maintain all necessary infrastructure and common facilities like roads, water, drainage and parking and club house at the proposed trade centre on their own, as the government will not bear any expenditure on this. The land on which this infrastructure is to be created will be in the possession of the Roads and Building department, said the resolution.

A senior official said that the government had set up a three-member committee comprising Secretaries of the Finance, Urban Development and R & B departments to decide market prices of the land to be allotted for the purpose.

Gujarat no. 1 in country in terms of infrastructure projects under PPP model

Quote:
Gujarat is the leader in the country in terms of infrastructure projects to be carried out under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model. Part of the Prime Minister’s Committee on Infrastructure compilation, this bit of information is a boost for the bureaucrats busy refurnishing the Vision-2020 document for the state.

Of the Rs 51,820 crore worth of projects in the infrastructure sector getting implemented through the PPP model across major states, over a third, worth Rs 18,251 crore are getting done in Gujarat. Of this, the ports sector takes the lion’s share at Rs 11,730 crore.

Maharashtra comes second with allocations of Rs 12,498 crore, followed by Andhra Pradesh. Of the PPP projects in the infrastructure sector that are in the pipeline, Gujarat has cornered as many as 30 of them worth Rs 12,314 crore. The total stands at Rs 34,724 crore.

Officials say the figures would help create a favourable image of the government before groups who are ready to invest in the sector. The state is aiming at 15,000 megawatts of new power capacity addition over the next five years, apart from developing at least 10 new ports in the private sector.

“We are also in the process reviewing the Vision-2020 document and this would help us in gauging how the infrastructure would pan out over the next few years. The revision is basically being done in the light of fresh investment pipeline that we have succeeded in attracting through the Vibrant Gujarat summits during the last few years,” says an industry bureaucrat.

Other sectors that have attracted these projects include roads, urban infrastructure, power, airports and railways.

A 'Little Japan' on 100 sq km in Gujarat

Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com

A 'mini-Japan' may take shape in Gujarat soon. A high-level business delegation from the Japanese External Trade Organisation (JETRO), which visited Gujarat last week, has asked the state government to provide a vast area of 100 square kilometres, where the Japanese could build their own township.

The land has been sought along the ambitious Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor which the Japanese government is helping to build.

"We have given them maps of the areas we can offer, so that they can have a closer look," a senior government official said after a meeting with nearly 40 top business executives who formed part of the delegation looking for opportunities along the DMIC.

The request to provide land for an exclusive Japanese industrial township came from JETRO vice-executive chairman Sunichi Yamamoto. The idea first cropped up during Chief Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Japan in April 2007.

Now, it has been left to the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) to work out details of the township with JETRO. The Japanese will return soon with a finalised location. Major industries keen to set up their offices in the township include Toshiba, Sumitomo, Chisso, Fujitrans.

The township will be primarily industrial and complete with residential complexes, medical, health and recreation facilities, restaurants, educational institutions. "Japanese companies will set up base here and will build the required infrastructure as per Japanese standards and requirements," the official said.

The official further said there is a tendency among Japanese to live in a cluster and feel at home wherever they are in the world. A similar project had been taken up in Thailand which has proved to be a successful model. The aim would be to give families of Japanese executives and workers a distinct flavour so that they don’t miss the environment back home.

The township will come up in any of the special investment regions' (SIRs) corridors proposed for development in the DMIC - Ahmedabad-Dholera, Ankleshwar-Vadodara, Dahej-Bharuch and Mehsana-Palanpur.

Either Ankleshwar Vadora or Ahmedabad Dholera corridor is a good choice. Bharuch-Dahej and Mehsana-Palanpur I am not sure. But its a good initiative by the government. Let's see if it comes up. Will boost up employment and infrastructure in the state of Gujarat on the arrival of Japanese-type township!!! We need more of these township from the Americans and the Australians too. They have a good organization for Apartment complexes and Metro-suburb connections!!! Increased Foreign investments and introduction of foreign type infrastructure will make take Gujarat on the top if all goes well within the next 5 years!!!
