The state government’s planning department has proposed two-phase development of high-speed trains in the state. The first phase will see development of six routes in the Mumbai metropolitan region, with distances ranging from 20 to 50 kms. The second phase will be the much bigger passenger-cum-freight corridor between Mumbai and Nagpur, a distance of about 1,000km.

The consortiums, which have bid for the feasibility study, are the Louis Berger Group in association with the RIL-promoted Urban Infrastructure Development Company, KPMG, Vössing (Germany), TUV.SUD South Asia, Rohit Gupta & Associates, and Bhobe & Associates.

A planning department source confirmed receipt of the expression of interest (EOI) from the six firms and said one of them would be selected by January to prepare the final technical feasibility report and financial bid document.

Principal secretary (planning) had invited offers from consortia involving multinationals having a minimum of five years’ experience in consultancy and planning, designing, execution and operation of similar projects.
It will be better for Govt. to look into speedy completion of Nagpur Cargo Hub Project rather than making plans which at first sight look very expensive for them to implement.. Do'nt drain state resounces on them.....

MIHAN UPDATE
Aircraft components production to start in July '08

Tata Automotive Solutions Ltd, which is setting up an aircraft components manufacturing unit in the special economic zone under the fast coming up multimodal international hub airport at Nagpur (Mihan) project, will start production by July 2008. This is the first time a private player will venture into aviation industry in the country hitherto restricted to public sector Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.

Maharashtra Airport Development Company vice-chairman and managing director R C Sinha said the Tatas will be among the first to start production in the Mihan SEZ project. Tatas are investing around Rs 700 crore in the unit to be located in 30 acres land here. The company is aiming to supply aircraft components to Boeing, the aviation giant that is coming up with maintenance, repair and overhaul depot in the same SEZ.

The MADC has also moved a proposal to the Maharashtra government for setting up a biotechnology and pharmaceutical park independent of the Mihan project. Consultants Ernst and Young have already submitted a report on its feasibility. It would require 320 hectares land and has potential to draw a sizeable draw investment if the state gave its nod, said Sinha.

According to Sinha, as per the land sale agreement the companies which bought land in the Mihan SEZ have to start utilising it for the intended purpose before September 25, 2010, i.e. three years from the date of final approval granted by the Union government to the SEZ. He said Satyam, which was among the first to buy land here, would now start their building work. Sinha was talking to reporters on the sidelines of the special lecture organised on opportunities in Mihan.

The work on infrastructure building for Mihan is progressing fast. "I inspected the site on Friday morning, 52 per cent of road network was completed at an expenditure of Rs 150 crore," said Sinha. The round-about changeover, one of the special features of Mihan, enabling entry and exit into SEZ area from Nagpur as well as Wardha directions without interfering with the traffic of national highway, would be ready by July next, Sinha stated.

Construction of the first township in the Mihan area has already started. Around 300 acres have been allotted for residential townships in the project, he said. A 200-room hotel will also come up in the project while an international school should be ready by 2009, he said.

Why Amravati was chosen as airport site

MADC vice-chairman R C Sinha has justified the plan to build a greenfield airport at Amravati city, stating that it was the second important city of Vidarbha after Nagpur. While there is a proposal to build a new airport there by acquiring 1,000 acres of land, he said a pilot training academy with private participation was also proposed there.

Sinha said Amravati as well as Chandrapur in Vidarbha were chosen for new airports under MADC’s plan to develop a regional air network. The network would also include several other cities in the state, including Shirdi, Jalgaon, Phaltan, Solapur and Karad.

"We have sent technical teams to Amravati and Chandrapur to scout for land. In case of Amravati, the present airstrip of about 1,800 metres is unsuitable for landing of bigger aircraft. So, a 3,200 metre new runway would be built by acquiring about 400 hectares of land, he said.

The airport development would be through private investment, Sinha added. In Chandrapur, about 900 acres would be needed for the new airport.

On the laying of second runway-that would 4,000 metres long and 60 metres wide-for Mihan project, Sinha said global tenders were floated for consultants to design it.

Singapore’s Changi international company will be consulted for boosting efficiency of the present airport facilities, he said.

Sinha also allayed fears over the rehabilitation of project affected persons from Shivangaon and said they would be resettled at Chichbhavan where land acquisition process was already started and has reached upto section 6 stage of the Act.

Nagpur set to become `bin-free`

Quote:
Nagpur may soon be a ‘bin-free’ city. The Nagpur Municipal Corporation has cleared a proposal to award the work of collecting trash from the doorsteps of citizens to Infrastructure Leasing & Finance Services (IL&FS), New Delhi, and the Centre for Development Communication (CDC), Nagpur, for a period of ten years.

The two had quoted Rs 449 per tonne, which was the lowest bid. The civic body had called for tenders three times.

According to the standing committee, if the NMC had undertaken the work, it would have cost it Rs 235 crore over a period of ten years. But with this, it would be able to cut its costs by almost half over the next decade. IL&FS and CDC would soon purchase 550 carts to start the work.

Its not looking good, I guess you were right. I read today that the NCP is trying hard to block the airport transfer. But its not all bad, the SEZ seems to be progressing fast.

Well i have been predicting it for quite some time.NCP leaders have their own IT SEZ's coming up in cities like Pune. Obviously MIHAN will be big stumbling block for them. Bcoz it offers everything right from SEZ, International Airport, Township, hotels. Further Nagpur has cost advantage. With govt. seriously thinking of cutting the tax cover for IT companies the best deal for such companies to move to SEZ and enjot TAX holidays. So i do'nt find any reason why now Nagpur Airport is not transferred. So some high level politics is being played to stop this project from coming up in Nagpur. It will a 'SUICIDE' if this project is stopped or moved out of Nagpur.Further it will help decongest cities like Mumbai and Pune. But then greed is supreme for politicians!!!!!!!

And if NCP-Shivsena govt. comes in Maharashtra then i am almost sure that 'MIHAN will be shelved or moved out of Nagpur'. So the old story continues... God Save it....

Jet Airways keen to set-up MRO facility by mid-2009

Shortlists Delhi, Nagpur, Bangalore, Hyderabad & Chennai; in talks with Boeing

Nagpur most probable choice due to Boeing's MRO

Buoyancy over the tremendous growth for the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility, triggered by India's booming aviation industry, Jet Airways is now gearing to set-up its Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility. It has short-listed five cities - Delhi, Nagpur, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai for setting up the MRO facility and according to a highly placed official of the airline is expected to start by mid-2009 at an estimated cost of over Rs 200 crore.

According to the official, Jet Airways will mostly finalise Nagpur to set-up the MRO facility in collaboration with Boeing. "We are looking forward to set-up the MRO facility by mid-2009 and are currently in talks with Boeing for the same. If the deal is finalised, then it will be on a revenue-sharing basis. The partnership with Boeing will be a big help to set up the facility since Boeing has already identified Nagpur to start the facility," stated the official. Jet Airways is one of Boeing's premier clients in India with 60 aircraft of the Boeing family (8, 777-300E, 4, 737-400, 15, 737-700), 31, 737-800 and 2, 737-900) out of its total fleet size of 76 aircraft.

Nagpur is most 'Probable' choice so we can't say upto its finalised. Earlier JET was thinking of 'Delhi' so why Nagpur now? But if it happens it would be fantastic. It would further fuel the growth of Nagpur. But they way 'Nagpur Airport Handover' issue is being handled we just can't say upto last minute about such project. So many proposed projects were moved out on Nagpur at last minute and since our politicians are too fool, naive and greedy we can't unless and untill we see these projects operational. I am keeping my fingers crossed

GATI Ltd to make Nagpur its hub for surface and air operations

Launches call center in Nagpur, ties up with Air India

MUMBAI: In a first of its kind in public-private partnership model, leading logistics company Gati Ltd has tied up with Air India to lease five cargo freighter aircraft.

The deal for the five B 737-200s will provide an edge to Gati in the airfreight logistics because of Air India's biggest network.

While two such freighters have been launched, others will be in place by June 2008. Each such aircraft will have a joint logo of Gati and Air India.

In a bid to provide faster complaint, Gati will also inaugurate its centralised call centre at Nagpur on Friday.

The call centre will cater to all markets and can take up to 400 agents and 50 remote locations.

Nagpur will also be the centralised distribution centre for Gati which will place the town as a central hub for both its surface and air express operations.

With a staff of 6,400 professionals, the company expects to achieve the Rs 1,000-crore mark by 2009.

Huge backlog in NMC projects

NAGPUR: The civic administration after period of seven months has issued work orders for construction of just 223 projects from the 836 projects proposed in annual budget by the civic house. Of these, 223 projects the actual construction work is going on at only 4 per cent projects, informed NMC Construction Advisory Committee (CAC) chairperson Suresh Talvekar.

The NMC passed 836 projects worth Rs 35.78 crore in its annual budget on May 30, 2007 without any modification in all 10 zones in city. However, even after seven months, a mere 223 work orders have been issued, he said.

A delegation of CAC members met municipal commissioner Sanjay Sethi recently and discussed issues related with pending construction projects. Talvekar informed that zone wise 160 projects proposed in Laxminagar zone from which work orders for construction of just 27 projects has been issued.

Dharampeth 116 projects (just six work orders) Hanuman Nagar: 57 projects (30 work orders), Dhantoli: 70 pro-jects (15 work orders) Nehru Nagar : 60 projects (37 work orders), Gandhibagh : 145 projects (50 work orders), Ashi Nagar:88 projects (47 work orders) and Mangalwari 113 projects (23 work orders).

Committee has asked Sethi to send work orders passed by NMC standing committee directly to executive engineers of the respective departments, instead of forwarding it to zonal offices and from there to executive engineers for speedy completion of work.

Sethi following the findings of construction committee immediately held meeting with senior officials of five zones and directed them to issue work orders for the pending works immediately on Thursday, Talvekar informed. A meeting of officials from remaining five zones will be held on Friday and work orders of projects from those respective zones will be issued soon, he added.

Airport transfer on hold again

Nagpur: The issue of transfer of Nagpur Airport to the Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC)—for the Mihan project came up before the union cabinet on Thursday. However, the matter was put on hold as the union defence minister A K Antony has sought some more time to study the cabinet note on the issue.
Since the whole issue includes a land-swap deal between the MADC and Indian Air Force (IAF), Antony sought some more time to study the cabinet note. The minister had returned late in the night from his official foreign visit, due to which he did not get time to study the matter. Considering his request the prime minister has said that the issue would be taken up after a week’s time, said highly placed sources. The defence ministry wants time to study the issue as it involves IAF’s interest too. IAF has a vital transport base on the land proposed to be used for Mihan project. It has been decided to offer the IAF a fresh land in lieu of what will be taken over for the Mihan project
The land swap apart from the airport transfer s one of the key factors on which the ambitious Mihan project depends. The MADC will be using 268 hectares of IAF’s land in lieu of which a tract of 400 hectares will be offered to the IAF. The deal awaits an approval from the defence ministry though other modalities have been decided. MADC has already identified the alternative land to be offered to the IAF .
IAF operates its IL-76 base of transport aircraft from Nagpur. With its central location, Nagpur is an ideal site for IAF’s logistical needs. The base was used for several key operations including providing relief material to quake hit Pakistan two years ago.
