All of Rane's clients are not in Auto industry. Example: SFL (Sundram Fastners) not only supplies Radiator caps to GM but many other mechanical components to different industries. Check out Rane's clients in the links you sent. Rane's locations are chosen for a purpose - catering to their clients (mostly big manufacturers) demands and not for charity reasons. No business functions like that.

Do you know how much it will cost to manufacture in one location and distribute throughout the country with sky rocketing petrol prices. Why would a manufacturer incur additional charges of transporting components from vendors in the age of just in time inventory?

I am not sure what point u r making but SFL is a TVS company not a Rane company. And nobody really knows why a location is chosen other than the managers of the concern.

As far as the business model, both centralized manufacturing and distributed manufacturing have proven successful; it’s up to the individual business to decide which best fits their needs. In fact most business in india (auto or otherwise) choose centralized manufacturing over distributed manufacturing. While rane have plants in many parts the country, on the other hand bharath forge and bajaj are located only in Maharashtra. And note, all these auto corporate have customers located in Chennai, Delhi, pune and Bangalore.

Finally to your answer your Bottome line comment

The current growth level (%) in auto sector (auto components) cannot be maintained, if we keep losing the big ticket projects. 30% share will go down to less than 10% in next decade. Maybe the same volume, but not the same growth.
30% share is high; it is bound to undergo correction. However I don’t share your degree of pessimism

Govt. for expansion of Meenambakkam airport

New Delhi, .Jan 9 (PTI): Disagreeing with a proposal for a second greenfield airport at Chennai, the Centre has suggested expansion of the Meenambakkam airport and constructing a second runway to cater to the growing aviation needs of the southern metropolis.

The consultants for the airport expansion programme have recommended that a second runway be constructed on the other side of Adayar river and a new terminal building built between the two runways, official sources said here.

The Tamil Nadu government would look into the land acquisition requirements as per the recommendations of the consultants, they said.

While the state government wanted to have a greenfield airport and had shortlisted two sites at Oraguddam and Sriperumbudur areas, the Civil Aviation Ministry opined that if a greenfield airport was constructed, the existing airport would have to be closed down to make the greenfield project economically viable.

The continuance of the existing airport would deter private parties from investing in the greenfield airport, the sources said.

The Ministry also opined that considerable amount of investment has already been made at the Meenambakkam airport and urged the state government to sort out the hurdles coming in the way of land acquisition, they said.

The proposal for the expansion of Meenambakkam entails acquiring of 583 hectares of land on the northern side and adjacent to the existing airport. However, the acquisition proposal has hit rough waters due to large number of cases filed against any such move.

I remember Rane buying up competitors / smaller plants in Hyderabad and some other location and scaled up the plants. Really made them into profit making with large volume of production.

JIT model is still not very common in India.

taking 50 meter along the ORR is of no use since this will not allow the real development to take placeonly small sized projects can been seen on road,that to there will be political influence on this 50 meter land.
in HYDERABAD,BANGALORE only on the proposed ORR there is major projects proposed.
In all cities ORR generally fuels the growth since vast lands will be available for development. Taking 50 meters off will lead to lots of future troubles and can even block organised future developments.

Kannan, you should have a clue about this.

Why and how does it happen only here? Don't the planners by default look at these things even before uttering anything about the plan.

Whats wrong and where? I know I'm deviating from the thread's subject, but I am just not able to come to grips with this.

:applause: Very encouraging. Probably they haven't acquired the land for the project.
Oh my god . I am bewildered by the lack of alacrity with which the projects are being executed in TN. I am not comapring with any other city here. Delay in the project causes a steep escalation in costs. Its just waste of our tax money.
main infrastructure projects in chennai:
IT expressway-delayed.
MRTS- delayed.
Metro rail-delayed.
ORR-delayed for a decade.
Airport- god only knows when it will start.
Elevated expressway- non starter.
automated parking garages- non starter.
flyovers over anna salai- non starter.etc. etc. etc.
Water supply- sucks. though we may be getting water now due to heavy rain, the water quality is as good as cooum water mixed with sewage.
How can we call ourselves an IT, auto and electronics hub when we don't have any basic infrastrucutre.
Do not disturb the Govt. They r busy now announcing and distributing the freebies.Why these infrastructure projects to be executed, that to expeditiously.Without these announced projects people in chennai r able to move round, though with little difficulty.The govt will not attempt to take over land around the Airport lest it may offend the poor people residing there.So, Definitely the Airport expansion will not take place.The grand schemes from the central minister T.R. BALU appears to be publicity stunts just before the elections.I may recollect that for the past three decades infrastructure schemes for chennai r announced and forgotten.

No, all the schemes announced by TR Balu are being implemented. The only project yet to start is the elevated highway, for which L&T Romboll is preparaing the study.

Should Newspapers be pro government on public issues???

The role of HINDU in bringing up public issues is deteriating day by day. They are now interested in getting Governement contracts. TOI is bashing the government for lack of infrastucture in b'lore. Cant compare how TOI is putting up public issues. Hindu doesn't raises nor demands anything for good. Is Hindu lacking quality editors? I dont think chennai is no way near to b'lore growth in infrastucture now works on expresss highways, metro project, new airport have been strated... but still Hindu knows how to praise the government and most funny part is Maran photos in front page in Business Line. Almost in all of their BL issues has his photo.

They have Indo-US nuclear deal in the frount page in their website. Disgusting.. Articles on public welfare and problems - No reports, Governmental demands for Social Developemt - Not even their editors have started thinking abotu this... What is happening with HINDU ??? :ancient:

Some of their high quality editorial in BL has been already outsourced to bloomberg.. how about outsourcing all these public issues in Hindu to TOI...

Sooner it will be Hindu by Sun Net... Ha ha ha... :banana:

But the Hyderabad edition of The Hindu highlight the infrastructure bottlenecks, bad roads, and deficiencies in the services of the muncipal corporation.Its the Hindu paper's articles, editorials on farmers sucides that made the Govt to speed up implementation of various programmes towards their relief.While economic times care little to cover chennai/TN BL also does not bother to cover much of TN news.However articles and editorials pour in when the subject matters RSS Hindutva, VHP or BJP for that matter. Remember that the Hindu developed cold feet after initiating investigative journalism on the Bofors scandal.Later it was continued by Arun shourie in the Indian express.

Government tells CMDA to prepare fresh draft Second Master Plan

MISSING LINKS: A comprehensive policy giving a direction to developments like the I.T corridor needs to be articulated in the Second Master Plan. — File photo

CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu Government has directed the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) to prepare a fresh draft Second Master Plan. It has returned the earlier draft Master Plan the CMDA submitted in December 2005.The directive suggests that the CMDA incorporate the developments the city has witnessed in the last few years.
The CMDA has written to local bodies within the Chennai Metropolitan Area (CMA) asking them to give suggestions and opinion within 60 days. After receiving the feedback, it will prepare the Master Plan anew. After receiving Government consent, the plan will be placed for public opinion.The CMA comprises 306 villages in 10 panchayat unions, 28 town panchayats, eight municipalities and a cantonment spread over 1,177 sq. km.
The first Master plan for Chennai was prepared in 1975. The Second Master Plan was drafted in 1994 and public opinion solicited in 1995. It was criticised for lack of public consultations among other things. It was later revised, updated and submitted afresh.Many developments have taken place since 1975. The CMA population has touched 6.42 million as per the 2001 census.

Chennai will see cumulative absorption of over 35 million sq ft !!

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1079177.cms

In fact, Bangalore will receive highest levels of cumulative commercial real estate demand which will be 50 million sq ft followed by National Capital Region (NCR) 45 million sq ft. in next five years.
------------------------------------------------
Bangalore, though still considered the prime IT & ITeS destination, is increasingly witnessing competition from other tier II & III markets in South. Chennai and Hyderabad have been emerging as IT/ITeS destinations and continue to attract interest from the corporate sector. The report further says that Chennai is expected to witness consistent growth in demand for commercial real estate with a cumulative absorption of over 35 million sq ft in the next five years, qualifying as a highly preferred destination along side the National Capital Region, Bangalore and Mumbai by 2010. Hyderabad , with its ability to draw talent from other locations and low cost of living, also continues to attract new companies, while observing expansion of the existing ones. It is expected to witness a 60% growth in demand by 2010
------------------------------------------------------
Other cities such as Coimbatore, Mysore and Mangalore also offer significant advantages such as wider access to the talent pool, significant potential for scalability and relatively lower real estate costs. If the IT/ ITeS growth story continues, South India collectively will emerge as the most preferred zone owing to a multitude of factors which are important business drivers. Again, the SEZ scenario is an important keystone which is set to alter the real estate landscape of India over the next decade. The demand projections given will greatly depend on the growth of the IT/ ITeS and telecom sectors and the economic growth of the country.

BOOM TIME

Largest quantum of development to be in residential segment Bangalore to receive highest level of commercial realty demand followed by NCR and Chennai
