Rajkot wants to raise FSI all over city

Quote:
The Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RKC) wants to increase the FSI across the city. Mayor Janak Kotak said he would meet the urban development minister in this regard. "We are working out a proposal to increase the FSI in the city as a whole as it is an urgent need to meet the requirement of a fast growing city,'' Kotak said.

Meanwhile, the Standing Committee of Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) has in principle approved the proposal to FSI along the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) corridor on the 150 ft Ring Road.

As of now, 1.50 FSI is permitted in low-rise buildings while 1.80 in high-rise buildings. The RMC plans to increase it to 2.25 and 2.66 respectively along the BRTS route.

The 10.70 km pilot BRTS project is underway from Gondal Chowkdi to Madhapar Chowkdi and RMC officials are expecting to run BRTS buses on the dedicated corridor soon. They hope to raise Rs 120 crore for the RMC by selling extra FSI along the 10 km BRTS corridor in city. "The proposal will now be sent for approval to the Urban Development department of the state government,'' said Kotak

Ahmedabad Two new Central jails set up at Surat and Rajkot would officially start in the last week of this month.


The two districts jails of Rajkot and Surat have undergone a massive expansion plan where more barracks, space for jail officials, training centres have been set up.

ADGP Prisons P C Thakur said, “The Central jails are required in Rajkot and Surat for smoothing up the functions. Having Central jails in all the four commissionarates in the state would streamline the population of prisoners in the state.”

While Surat Central Jail is expected to accommodate nearly 3,000 prisoners, the Rajkot Central Jail would accommodate 1,000 to 1,200 prisoners.

The Ahmedabad (Sabarmati) Central Jail that was housing prisoners from Ahmedabad, north Gujarat (four districts), Saurashtra (eight districts) and Kutch, who are under life terms, undertrials, Saurashtra- Kutch prisoners with more than five years term and north Gujarat prisoners with more than six months term.

Hence, the overcrowding at Ahmedabad Central Jail is the high in the state. The new Rajkot Central Jail would take away nearly half the population of prisoners from Ahmedabad, prison officials said.

The Vadodara Central Jail that was accommodating prisoners from the whole of central Gujarat and south Gujarat.

The south Gujarat prisoners with six months term, women prisoners with one year term and other prisoners with life term and undertrials are lodged in Vadodara Central Jail.

According to the officials, although Vadodara Central Jail accommodated south Gujarat prisoners, the Surat sub-jail was badly overcrowding with prisoners. Looking at the alarming rise in prisoners in Surat, the Prisons Department decided to convert the district jail to Central jail.

The prisons officials said while the Surat district jail has capacity of 300 prisoners only, at present, it has 1,600 prisoners. However, there is not much overcrowding in Rajkot district jail but the neighbouring district jails of Porbandar, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar and Amreli sub-jail was overcrowding with undertrials.

The state police would appoint two new superintendents for the Rajkot and Surat Central jails respectively.

The Prisons Department has already begun shortlisting jail staffers for the two new Central jails. The 107 jail assistants, who recently finished their training at Sabarmati Central Jail, would be posted in Rajkot and Surat Central Jails.

Artificial quartz, marble unit to come up near Rajkot

Tile manufacturing company H&R Johnson (India) will set up a new plant near Rajkot by using Chinese technology to roll-out artificial quartz and marble products. The unit, having a cumulative annual capacity of 9.6 million square feet, is expected to begin commercial production by mid-February.

A 50:50 joint venture partnership between H&R Johnson and Rajkot-based Antique Granito, this new unit will herald the company's foray into the engineered marble and quartz business. This is the fourth joint venture partnership that the company has forged in Gujarat.

It already has three units manufacturing tiles in the state that function under different tie-ups with Antique Granito, Spectrum and Small Tiles Pvt Ltd. H&R Johnson already owns 50 per cent equity stake in Antique Granito and Morbi-based Small Tiles.

“We will be importing the raw material needed for engineered marble from countries like Vitenam and Greece, while those for quartz will be sourced locally,” said T J P Rao, SBU head-Marble & Quartz, of the company which it set up its first tile-manufacturing plant in Gujarat in 2005.

The commercial production of quartz will begin by mid-February at the Rs 50 crore unit, while that of marble will begin by March-end.

Engineered marble is an artificial marble made from marble lumps or marble chips and powders. Similarly, engineered quartz is a denser product, compare to granite stone. It is made entirely from hard powders and bonded together with polyester resin.

The company also plans to export a sizeable quantum of quartz produced at this unit to European and North American markets. It had clocked Rs 1,500 crore in sales last year.

Solar power from cricket stadium to light up Rajkot

Cool Idea......
-------------------

Other than hosting matches, the Madhavrao Scindia International Cricket Stadium on Race Course Road will be put to another interesting use. In the near future, the stadium's roof will have solar panels installed, which will power nearly 40,000 streetlights that dot Rajkot's roads.

Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) has invited international bids for preparing a detailed project report for its 'Solar Power Cricket Stadium.' RMC commissioner Ajay Bhadoo said that proposals have been invited from qualified and experienced consultancy firms and institutes. "We thought that if the stadium's roof which has a usable area of approximately 5,500 square metres could be converted into a solar panel. The energy thus generated could be used to light up the stadium during the matches as well as the street lights,'' said Bhadoo.

Solar power could also help bring down RMC's electricity bill. Presently, the 40,000 street lights consume 10.88 MW electricity per year and the civic body pays for Rs 5 crore as bills, said Alpana Mitra, officer on special duty (OSD), RMC.

"Apart from matches, solar panel could be connected to the grid and it would help us to compensate for the energy used by the street lights," said Mitra. The initial project cost is estimated at Rs 30 crore. "We have initiated an administrative process in this regard and floated an advertisement for the appointment of the consultant for the same. Soon, a project proposal shall be submitted to Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA) and the Union ministry for new and renewable energy, for financial assistance. We will apply under the Clean Energy Fund of Prime Minister's Scheme,'' said a senior RMC official.

RMC is also upgrading this international stadium and hoping to host more cricket matches, league matches and club cricket.

Rajkot machine tools industry grows despite slowdown

Quote:
Despite an economic slowdown in economy, the Rajkot based machine tools industry is witnessing a steady growth in recent times. Thanks to increased automation in the engineering sector and good growth in manufacturing field, demand for machine tools, especially the ones with computer numeric controls (CNC).

"We were wary about our growth amidst the current economic slow down. But domestic demand for machine tools have been on a constant rise, not only in Rajkot but also across India. In fact, demand for CNC machine tools itself have increased by 30-40 per cent while that of conventional ones grew by 10-15 per cent as compared to last year," said Jay Mavani, joint secretary, Machine Tools Manufacturer’s Association of Rajkot (MTMA).

Mavani attributed the reason for growth in demand to increased automation in related industries.

"As most of the companies in Rajkot as well as in other parts of the country are moving towards automation, demand of automatic and semi automatic machines has increased during past one year and will continue this year too," he added.

At 450 units, the Rajkot machine tools industry stands at number position in the country as a cluster.


During financial year 2011-12, it pegged a turnover of Rs 1,000 crore, while this year the industry is expecting over 20-25 per cent growth, thereby tapping more than Rs 1,200 crore of turnover.


"Auto components and engineering sector is doing very well and automation progress is going on various sectors. Further, we have lots of orders yet to be completed and more are on their way in the coming days," Parakramsinh Jadeja, managing director of Jyoti CNC said.

One of the largest CNC machine manufacturing company, Jyoti CNC Automation Private Limited invested about Rs 250 crore last year on capacity expansion. The company also pegged a turnover of around Rs 400 crore.

As a cluster, Rajkot alone consumes about 600-650 high value fully automatic CNC machine every year and according to industry sources, it is expected to cross over 750 this year
. "It is hard to convert conventional machine tools to CNC as it requires huge amount of investment but capable players are now manufacturing both simultaneously," Mavani added.

Auto-Component makers in Rajkot in top-gear

Quote:
With their eyes set on the growth path, Rajkot-based auto components manufacturers are planning to invest Rs 200-250 crores towards capacity expansion and automation during the current financial year 2012-13.

According to industry sources, in past two years, more than 100 new manufacturing units have started their operations in this region. Courtesy, a number of automobile majors setting up their operations in Gujarat.

This has also prompted many of the Rajkot-based auto components manufacturers to expand their production capacity. The auto components industry in the region is growing at the annual rate of 30-40 per cent.

"Over Rs 250 crore worth of investments are expected to be made in components industry at Rajkot during the current financial year. This is because several auto giants are eyeing Gujarat for their manufacturing facilities. Moreover, small players are endeavoring to become tier-1 suppliers," Hemant Shiparia, past chairman of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Saurashtra and Kutch region.

Adding further he said, "Most of the players in Rajkot are tier-2 suppliers and doing aggressive marketing for their products in national and international market through participating in auto exhibitions."

Tier - 1 suppliers are those who supply components directly to the original equipment makers (OEMs), while tier-2 suppliers supply these components to bulk buyers.

Amul Industries, a leading suppliers of auto components to OEMs, is also expanding its production capacity of crank shafts from the current 3,000 units to 5,000 units per months. For this, about Rs 5 crore worth of investment is planned. The company currently supplies parts to auto companies like Tata Motors, Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, Ashok Layland, John Deere and several others.

"It becomes necessary for us to expand capacities as auto components demand has increased in past two years. Moreover, manpower shortage in the industry forces us to go for automation. Many manufacturers from Rajkot are investing depending upon their capacity," said Sanjiv Vadodaria, director of Royal Engineers.

Royal Engineers makes pins, steering and suspension parts for cars. The company exports over 70 per cent of its production to the European countries. It is a tier-2 supplier in India and now trying to become tier-1 supplier.

"We are now trying to be a direct suppliers to auto major and for that we are preparing to double our production in this year with an investment of about Rs 25-30 lakh on automation," Vadodaria said.

Another Rajkot-based components manufacturer Kadvani Forge Limited that supplies gear box parts to Mahindra & Mahindra, General Motors, Tata Motors and Ford, is also planning partial automation at its plant.

Himanshu Dhaduk, managing director of Kadvani Forge said, "We are going to invest about Rs 30-40 lakh in our plant for automation. It will reduce our dependence on manpower and increase our quality. We are also focusing to utilise our production capacity from present 1,500 tonnes to 2,800 tonnes per month."

City-based ISK Bearings Industries - the only producer of clutch release bearing and wheel hub unit in India is considering to start new unit in Rajkot.

"Currently, we are at the developing stage as we are just two years old company. There are several expansion plans, under which we will invest about Rs 1 crore during this year on machinery and new channel line of production," said Haresh Hadvani, managing partner of ISK Bearing Industries.

ISK has also signed an MoU with Gujarat government in the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investor Summit held in January 2011. Company has demanded land near Rajkot to start state of the art production unit.

According to industry estimate, there are around 500 auto component manufacturers at Rajkot. Out of these around 50 are suppliers to OEMs, while the remaining are small players that supply to the retail market. The industry in Rajkot produces more than 300 types of parts for the automobile industry and employs about 10,000 people. The industry has a turnover of around Rs 800-1000 crore per annum.

Worl on 2nd Ring Road to start soon

Quote:
If everything goes as per the plan, the Rajkot Urban Development Authority (RUDA) would soon begin the work of second Ring Road in the city.

On Thursday, Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) commissioner and chairman of RUDA Ajay Bhadoo met around 150 farmers of seven villages whose land would be acquired for the construction of the new road.

According to RUDA officials, the second Ring Road would be constructed from Jamnagar Road to Gondal Road and will be 20 km long and 45 meter wide. The Ring Road has been divided into two parts. One part is from Jamnagar Road to Kalawad Road and second is Kalawad Road to Gondal Road. The Ring Road will pass through Ghanteshwar, Munjka, Mota Mava, Mavdi, Pal, Kangishiyali and Vavdi village's revenue limit area.

Bhadoo said that RUDA has already issued tenders for selecting developers for the road.

"The new Ring Road will help ease traffic in the city as well as in the expanding city areas in the western part," he said.

According to RUDA officials, the farmers are ready to give their land for Ring Road amicably.


RUDA officials said that the Ring Road project will be executed on built, finance, operate and transfer basis.

Yeah, its sad. We need more Rajkotwalas to represent their city. Its a shame because Rajkot is growing so fast.

I think it is the smallest city in India to have BRTS under implementation which is a proud fact.

My visit to Rajkot left me with a positive impression of the city. Praises for Jamnagar, Porbandar and Bhuj but can't say much for Junagadh, Dwarka and Bhavnagar. Saurastra's potential is under appreciated compare to rest of Gujarat. Some of those Kings have done good job building their kingdoms during British Raj under the circumstances.

Rajkot will soon get closer to nature

Residents of Rajkot will soon have another venue to spend their leisure time on weekends and other holidays. For a city deprived of amusement spots, the development of a nature education park would be a welcome step.

The proposed park is being developed by the local civic body along Randarda lake on the outskirts of the city. Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) wants to develop Vivekananda nature education park as a destination for amusement and generating awareness about nature.

RMC officials said the park will be developed on seven hectares of rocky area. "While lawns and seating arrangements will be developed on three hectares, there will be plantation of various trees in the remaining area. This is actually a waste land of RMC located in close proximity to Randarda and Lalpari lakes," said RMC commissioner Ajay Bhadoo.

He said the RMC will use the natural landscape while designing the park. "It will have path ways, resting sites along with an amphitheatre among other facilities. The park will be for kids, youth and old alike,'' Bhadoo said.

RMC officials said that the civic body will spend Rs 1 crore on developing the facility while another Rs 50 lakh would be spent on the civil construction works. The entire project will be completed within one year.

"Forest department will carry out the plantation activity. Keeping in mind the aim of providing nature education to children, various types of plants including bamboo, cactus, bonsai along with others will be grown in the park. The water for developing the park will be taken from Randarda lake using drip irrigation technique," said an RMC official.

"Once ready, it will be another green patch for the city and a space to spend time amidst nature. Moreover, the location is close to Pradhyuman Park zoo. Those visiting the zoo will visit the park as well,'' said Dr Jaiman Upadhyay, chairman, standing committee, RMC.
