Pimpri Chinchwd Municipal Corporation to invite bids for 12 projects
Quote:
PUNE: The Pimpri Chinchwd Municipal Corporation (PCMC) this year is expected to start inviting bids for 12 new development projects, including setting up of a 3,000-capacity auditorium on the lines of Pune's Ganesh Kala Krida Manch.

Municipal commissioner Shrikar Pardeshi, who completed a year in office on Wednesday, said, "We are determining the sites, completing land acquisition, making budgetary provision and appointing architects for the projects."

Besides construction of the auditorium, other projects include a planetarium at Science park in Chinchwad, developing areas around Moraya Gosavi temple at Chinchwad and a boat club at Thergaon. Also, developing a museum of forts near Bhosari lake garden, museum of industries and acquarium near Bird Valley park in Chinchwad, developing a garden in Pimpale Gurav, installation of statues depicting a meeting of Sant Dnyaneshwar and Sant Namdev at Magazine chowk on the 'palkhi' route in Bhosari, along with construction of a 100-bed hospital in Bhosari.

The corporation is also in the process of preparing detailed project reports for construction of a common effluent treatment plant for 2,500 small industries in Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation areas, preparing a city sanitation plan with provision for construction of toilets at busy places, solid waste management and garbage segregation. The proposal for the construction of metro in the city has been sent to the state government for approval, Pardeshi added.

The first and second phases of the drainage works under JNNURM have been completed at a cost of Rs 178.99 crore. The works include construction of five sewage treatment plant. The e-governance project under the JNNURM scheme worth Rs 9 crore was completed last year, the civic chief said. The second phase of water supply scheme under JNNURM was completed in March this year, he added.

River works for restoration not navigation, says civic body
Quote:
The Pune Municipal Corporation on Wednesday has categorically stated that it is not carrying out any river navigation project in the Mula-Mutha rivers. In an affidavit filed before the National Green Tribunal in Delhi, the civic body said it would carry out river restoration works to reduce pollution and allow free flow of water.

The affidavit was filed in response to an application filed before NGT by a group of citizens and activists who said the municipal corporation was carrying out a river navigation project under the garb of river restoration project.

Following the submission of the affidavit, the NGT disposed of the application. The petitioners include Sarang Yadwadkar, an architect, Parineeta Dandekar, a researcher, Dilip Mohite, an agriculturist, and businessmen Sanjay Bhosale and Narendra Chug. Besides the civic body, the other respondents in the application included the state irrigation department, Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission wing, and the Mahratta Chamber of Commerce Industries and Agriculture.

Additional city engineer (projects) Sriniwas Bonala, in his affidavit, said the river restoration work which is in progress, has been taken up under JNNURM for eco-restoration of the Mula Mutha rivers flowing through the city. As part of the river restoration works, the civic body is laying 1,600 mm diameter pipelines on both the banks of the river to stop sewage from entering the river.

The river restoration project, the affidavit said, includes gabion mattresses and undertaking plantation works to strengthen embankments for a riparian eco-system on the river banks. The civic body is carrying out desilting works, primarily for free flow of water.

Bonala stressed that within the scope of eco-restoration project, the civic body was not carrying out any river navigation works. "Controlled blasting or other excavation activities on the river's banks are primarily for laying sewer lines to prevent direct contamination of the river. The pipelines will collect untreated water and carry it to the sewage treatment plants," the affidavit added.

The civic body said tenders inviting bids were not for the river navigation project. The tender notice is in line with the central design office in Nashik vetting the river restoration project. There are no bunds to be constructed across the river," the civic body has stated.

The petitioners said they had gathered information under RTI and through other means and then filed the application before the NGT. The application said that the project of 'restoration of Mutha and Mula-Mutha rivers for navigation' was rejected by the JNNURM office and state irrigation department, but the civic body was implementing it by changing its name to 'restoration of Mutha and Mula-Mutha rivers'.

The civic body and other respondents had violated various laws and rules related to environmental protection, they added. In the application, the petitioners cited minutes of the meetings between the PMC and irrigation department in February 2008, wherein it was decided that the project should be sent to the irrigation department for technical scrutiny.

In September 2010, the petitioners said they had sought information under RTI from the civic body about the progress of the river-navigation project. The corporation, in its reply, had said, "The works of de-silting, channelisation and construction of a protection wall are under progress. As the navigation project is yet in the planning stage, its (project) report is yet incomplete and therefore it is difficult to give information." Similarly, the JNNURM directorate, in its reply in December 2010 to a RTI query on the progress of the river navigation project, said no proposal of 'river navigation' is under consideration in JNNURM.

The petitioners said that on the basis of the information that they had received, the PMC had initially proposed 'river navigation in Mutha and Mula-Mutha river' which included components such as construction of three bunds to retain water levels and depths, deepening the river bed through excavation, channelization of Mutha and Mula-Mutha rivers, construction of embankments on the banks of the channel, construction of jetties on the banks of the channel at various locations, and laying of a 1,600 mm pipelines below the embankments on both sides to carry sewage.

When contacted, PMC's legal advisor Manjusha Idhate said the application had been disposed of in PMC's favour. Asim Sarode, counsel for the petitioners, said the process in National Green Tribunal had compelled the PMC to file an affidavit and withdraw its project which was damaging the river. We could make PMC accountable and answerable because of the process before NGT," he said.

Pune, India: The World's Next Great Tech City?

Quote:
Meditation is no laughing matter at the Osho International Meditation Resort in the city of Pune, India. When I went to the 26-acre grounds at Koreagon Park for the afternoon tour and jokingly asked if they had Wi-Fi, I was met with blank stares. Perhaps meditation isn’t a joke, but perhaps the history of this place means its gatekeepers have to be more guarded than usual.

In the 1970s the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho) opened an ashram here and attracted swathes of Westerners attracted by the alleged permissive nature of its devotees and the personality cult of the Bhagwan.

In 1981, after long-running tensions with the Indian government, the Bhagwan finally moved out of Pune to Oregon, where he set up a commune called Rajneeshpuram.

The ongoing stories about casual sex and the Bhagwan’s burgeoning fleet of Rolls-Royce cars again attracted controversy, and four years later it was all over. Things fell apart and the Bhagwan was deported from the U.S. and came back to Pune, where he died in 1991.

A lot has changed in two decades, not only the phoenixing of the ashram into a non-permissive meditation resort, but the emergence of Pune as city that has an internationally acclaimed university, a young demographic, a fantastic nightlife and a tech hub that is beginning to challenge the hegemony of Bangalore.

The city is only 75 miles from the financial center of Mumbai, and, unusually for India, it has great transportation and nothing like the traffic problems of other Indian cities. It feels new, fresh and almost Californian in its energy and, unlike 99% of Indian roads, the Mumbai Pune Expressway is a joy to drive down.

Just up from the Osho ashram is the O Hotel, next to what was the German Bakery, a popular spot for tourists and students that was destroyed by a bomb in 2010.

Seventeen people were killed, but rather like the citizens of New York, London and Madrid, this has not deterred the people of Pune who are passionately proud of their city. The O Hotel is abuzz with VCs and startups, all looking forward, not backward — and it also has a fabulous rooftop pool and bar.

India’s startup scene has evolved a great deal over the last two years, following the global trend in cloud, mobile and digital startups. Pune is to Bangalore what Austin, Texas, is to Silicon Valley, California –- a hotbed of innovation with a more affordable standard of living.

“One recent report suggests Pune has surpassed Bangalore as an engineering hub for multinational corporations. A lot of resources are now available for would-be entrepreneurs in India. Additionally, an increasing number of role models (in terms of successful Indian entrepreneurs) are able to impart their experiences,” says Nitin Dahad, CEO and Publisher ofThe Next Silicon Valley.

The city’s entrepreneurial heart is best illustrated by the robotics company Precision Automation that was founded by Ranjit Date and Mangesh Kale, who started their business just before the demise of the Bhagwan in 1990.

The company is expected to turn a profit of $67 million this year, up 20% from last year — and now has offices in eight global cities, including Detroit. Date in particular is one of those role models for local entrepreneurs, and a primordial soup of startups is forming around companies like Precision.

Luke Deering, a UK-based entrepreneur and writer, and his new book Accelerate features 135 startup accelerator programs and interviews with 150 of their graduates. He says Pune "is still developing as a startup with great IT talent and huge potential."

But all hubs and communities need support from trade associations. The MEF is a mobile-focused global community for content and commerce and lobbies hard for Indian and Pune mobile startups to join this community.

"India has an extraordinary history of developing other people's IP, but we are now creating and building our own. This is an exciting change spawning new hotbeds of technical entrepreneurship in cities such as Pune, and we are helping them connect with the global mobile community and monetize their services,” says Jonathan Bill, SVP of Innovation and Business Development for Vodafone India.

“Pune has an active startup ecosystem in Software/IT, manufacturing technology and clean tech. A small city compared to other Indian metro cities, Pune has historically been a center for education and research. Today, it is also one of the top manufacturing hubs in India,“ says Amit Paranjape, co-founder of PuneTech.com, the city’s leading online tech community.

Even more unusually for India where fixed-line internet penetration is puny in relation to its 1.1 billion people, Pune even has a culture of coffee shop Wi-Fi and is known as India’s first "Wi-Fi City" after the Unwiring Pune project was jointly announced by Intel and Pune Municipal Corporation in March 2006.

Just don’t ask for it at the Osho International Meditation Resort.

According to the nationwide survey, Pune’s suburban business district gets an annual return of 14 per cent, just behind Central Mumbai who topped the list with 19 per cent annual returns and Mumbai West (15%).

The suburb district as mentioned in the survey consists areas like Kalyaninagar, Airport Road, Yerawada, Ahmednagar Road and Vishrantwadi.

Besides, the survey also states that the prices of the office properties in these areas are expected to rise by 38 % in the next five years.

The survey
Knight Franks India’s office investment advisory report titled ‘Top Business district in India to invest in’ studies 33 business sectors divided as business districts of the country.

Reason of the upsurge
Samantak Das, director of research and advisory services of Knight Frank India, said, “Pune’s office real estate market is primarily driven by the IT and ITES sector. Any slowdown in this sector will have an adverse impact on the demand of office properties.”

How Pune fares?
The report states that Pune has a total area of 43.1 mn sq ft area of office space of which 34.2 mn sq ft is already occupied.

While the IT sector occupies nearly 75 per cent, 12 per cent is occupied by the manufacturing centre.

In numbers
Capital values of the office properties in areas like Kalyaninagar, Airport Road, Yerawada, Ahmednagar Road and Vishrantwadi varies from Rs4,800 to Rs6,000 per square feet and by 2017, it is expected to rise up to somewhere between Rs6,650 and Rs8,300 per square feet.

Area-wise
The survey shows that though areas like Kalyaninagar, Airport Road, Yerawada, Ahmednagar Road and Vishrantwadi are expected to get higher investment returns, areas like Bund Garden Road, Senapati Bapat Road, Camp, Deccan, Pune station area has the highest capital value in terms of office property rate in the city.

In these areas, present rate of properties varies from Rs7,200 to Rs8,400 per square feet and by 2017 these rates are expected to increase upto Rs8,600-Rs10,100 with annual investment returns of only 9 per cent.

Pune realty market expanded by 20% in six months

Quote:

Pune saw an infusion of 20.30 per cent supply in real estate in form of 494 new projects adding 27,008 units into the market for the period December 2012 to June 2013.

Up from 12 per cent rise in supply in the previous six months, said a report.

Of the total stock, 79.5 per cent is currently sold out. Even with substantial supply being added, the market continues to show remarkable stability in terms of sellout – the average unsold stock has remained steady in the range of 21 per cent since June 2011, said Gera Realty Report brought out by Gera Developments.

This report contains information gathered from 2,273 projects having a total of 2,52,054 apartments at various stages of construction across the Pune Metropolitan Region.

"The Pune residential market continues to show resilience amidst a negative economic environment at a macro level. At a local level, the fact that developers have launched projects in more numbers than ever before and the sellout ratio continues to be at the average market sell out indicates that the demand continues from home buyers. The price increases have also tapered off marginally in line with the reduction in inflation over the last 6 months," said Rohit Gera, Managing Director, Gera Developments.

The report also suggested that Pune Realty Market is in an expansion mode with more premium homes being launched. On analyzing the price points across the market, there is a clear trend of larger apartments selling at higher prices. On the other hand, the micro markets have witnessed the maximum increase in prices over the last 24 months.

Gera further added, "Looking forward, we believe that the next 12 months have more risks than the last few years on account of the impending national elections as well as the macro economic situation. We also expect the cost structures for developers to be negatively impacted on account of the Real Estate Regulation legislation that is currently being considered by the Government. The draft in its’ current form will lead to a price rise – this is a fallout of the populist move by the Government to regulate developers and the effect of price rises for the home buyer can be considered collateral damage."

Pune Municipal Corp sits on proposal for second Railway Station at Hadapsar

A year ago, Pune railway division sent PMC a proposal for expanding Hadapsar station by reserving adjacent land




Hadapsar, Pune: It has been a year since railway officials from Pune division sent a proposal to the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) demanding reservation of land next to Hadapsar station so that a few of the train services could be shifted there, but nothing has happened till date claimed a few senior railway officials.Railway officials said they manage about 140 long-distance trains form the Pune railway station daily, which takes a toll on other services.

After undertaking a survey to find a suitable second operational point, officials zeroed in on Hadapsar station, and sent a land reservation proposal to the PMC. But in the past year, only discussions have taken place.

“Our officials surveyed Hadapsar station and found it to be suitable for shifting some of the operations from Pune station. In the proposal, we requested the PMC to reserve the land surrounding the station for transport facilities.

Also, the entry and exit points to the station need widening so that passengers get adequate space while accessing and leaving the station,” said Pune division railway manager Suneet Sharma.

“The proposal is yet to be approved by the PMC. Once sanctioned, we’ll start extending the platform and move a few of our services to Hadapsar.”

There are two platforms that can accommodate 12 coaches each, and a single foot-over bridge (FOB) connecting them. The station is located on the Mundhwa-Kharadi bypass road and has a single approach road. While one side of the station is surrounded by industries and a vast expanse of open space, the other is encroached upon by slums. Daily, 16 passenger trains (8 up and 8 down) pass through the station for Solapur, Manmad, Baramati and Daund.

There is no security guard or Railway Police Force (RPF) personnel deployed at the station. During emergencies, an RPF constable is called from Loni railway station or Mundhwa police station. The staff comprises eight from operational section, three commercial workers and two housekeepers.

One of the staffers said, “In the absence of security guards, and easily accessible restrooms, local urchins have converted the station into a night shelter. So we keep the toilets locked during daytime and give the keys only when passengers ask for them. The station is huge and we need more people to keep it clean.”

Work of increasing the height of platform #2 is currently underway, alongside construction of a toilet for physically challenged commuters. Railway passenger Sambhaji Gosavi said, “There is only one shed at the station. The seating capacity needs to be increased too.”

Vipul Alekar, another commuter, said, “To board a long-distance train, we go all the way to Pune. If some trains are shifted here, it will benefit those residing in Hadapsar, Mundhwa, NIBM, Kondhwa, Kharadi and other nearby areas.”

Pune to have 10 new pools by next year

Quote:
PUNE: Ten new swimming pools will come up in different parts of the city by next summer. Officials of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) said that most of the swimming pools are coming up in the fringe areas of the city as it has been a long pending demand of the residents in these areas.

The establishment department of PMC is implementing this project. "The construction of the pools is underway. It will be ready by the end of this financial year," said Sandeep Khandwe, executive engineer of the department.

He added that the civic administration have consulted some experts before starting the construction of the pools to ensure complete safety of the swimmers. "The construction will be based on the safety standards and instructions from the experts. The depth of the swimming pools has been lowered to ensure safety," said Khandwe.

The depth of the pools has been reduced to 1 to 1.35 metre. The pools that were previously built have a depth of 1.70 metre.

The civic officials said that the safety measures like lifeguards, floats for swimmers, first-aid boxes will be in place. Every pool will have a telephone and training aids like books, pamphlets and posters will also be made available. The aids will be used to teach life-saving techniques such as scanning the pool, rescue, revival and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A portable oxygen cylinder with mask will also be provided.

many of these areas anyways are quite densely packed with 4- 15 floor towers. Infact now these areas are so hapazardly developed especially the ambegaon area and roads are very narrow and there is too much traffic. This should have been done atleast 10 to 12 years back. Now developing infra is very difficult in these areas.

Our planning is rubbish, first they allow unplanned development in frindge villages then they take them in corporation , instead of expanding city limits when we can forsee that city will be expanded to those areas/villages. Atleast planned development can happen.
