    The story has been read 399 times.

    Gulbarga to get its first mall in Jan 2011
    Gulbarga's first mall, Shradha mall, will become operational in January 2011. Being developed by Kalaskar Properties Private Limited (KPPL), the 1.45 lakh sq.ft mall will significantly improve the shopping experience of the people of the city.
    http://www.indiaretailing.com/upload/newsimage/shradha-mall.jpg

    K Vijaykumar, vice-president, KPPL, says, “Shradha is the first mall of Gulbarga. People of Gulbarga currently visit Hyderabad (220 km from here) during the weekends for all their shopping needs. With Shradha mall opening up shortly, they will have an excellent shopping and cinema-viewing experience, right in the heart of Gulbarga.”

    The total investment on the project is estimated to be around Rs.25 crore. The mall will have a three-screen multiplex – with a seating capacity of 950 people and spread over an area of 41,000 sq.ft. The Kalaskar Group is in talks with top three multiplex operators. “Discussions are in the final stages with three leading operators in the multiplex category,” reveals Anil Kalaskar, managing director, KPPL.

    One of the anchor tenants of the mall will be Big Bazaar, which will occupy 34,100 sq.ft area. The total chargeable area in the mall is 63,000 sq.ft, of which 36,393 sq.ft has been signed up. “Discussions are in advanced stages with many retail vanilla brands in the remaining area of the mall. The fit outs will be handed over to the retail brands by September 2010. The lease for the multiplex areas and the food court is yet to be finalised,” adds Vijaykumar.

    The areas serviced by the mall would include Vittal Nagar, MB Nagar, Bramapur, Jagat, Khubha Plot Layout, Sangameshwar Colony and Darga Area, among others.

  • Press Trust of India / Bangalore June 24, 2010, 15:53 IST

    Geodesic Techniques, a leading provider of steel-intensive structures in India, today said it has set up a manufacturing facility in Bidar, Karnataka, at an investment of Rs 200 crore.

    The company projected a revenue of Rs 1,000 crore over the next three years.

    Majority of the investment is focused on the Bidar facility, which is already operational and would be formally inaugurated by the end of this calendar year, the company's founder and CEO, Srinidhi Anantharaman, told reporters here today.

    "The new facility is designed to serve Geodesic's high volume large infrastructure projects like airport terminals, high rise steel buildings, signature structures, bridges and urban transportation initiatives," Anantharaman said.

    Strengthening its manufacturing capabilities, the facility would position the company as a leading integrated design and build player and was expected to provide employment opportunities for nearly 5,000 people, he said.

    The facility has a peak capacity of 65,000 metric tonnes per annum.

    Changing the face of Bidar

    Rishikesh Bahadur Desai

    It has been named the 22nd cleanest city in the country

    NABARD recognises Bidar as model SHG district

    The town generates 40 tonnes of garbage every day

    http://www.hindu.com/2010/05/22/images/2010052264020901.jpg
    Hygienic:The imported vacuum suction sweeper of the Bidar CMC

    Bidar:How did Bidar, that was considered a dirty place three years ago, earn the distinction of being the 22 {+n} {+d} cleanest city in the country? Innovative ideas to achieve cleanliness, people's participation, and a responsive administration have helped the city achieve it.

    Three years ago, there garbage was strewn on the streets and drains were overflowing. There was no concept of door-to door collection of garbage and there were no garbage dumping sites.

    However, a coordinated effort by the district administration, the CMC, NGOs and SHGs ensured that Bidar is a much cleaner city now. In the first ever National City Rating by the Union Ministry of Urban Development, the tiny town has beaten cities such as Udupi, Belgaum, Bellary, Tumkur, Gulbarga and Hubli-Dharwad.

    The Union Government's benchmarks were keeping the city free from open defecation; universal access to toilets for all, including the poor; elimination of manual scavenging; wastewater treatment; solid waste and storm water and recycling or reuse of treated wastewater, to ensure improved public health outcomes and environmental well-being.

    Bidar has scored on three important areas — primary collection of garbage from houses, hygienic transportation of garbage and sanitary filling in landfill sites. Use of hi-tech machinery for cleaning of roads, drains, night soil pits and lifting and transporting garbage containers has helped.

    “Nabard has recognised Bidar as a model SHG district. We decided to make use of it and we outsourced garbage collection and some other specified tasks to SHGs. It has been a huge success,” says Bidar CMC environmental engineer Abhay Kumar Habib. NGOs helped them choose SHGs. Women members of SHGs go door-to-door to collect garbage. SHGs were given 25 auto tippers on subsidy. This ensured that primary collection of garbage was complete within 35 hours. SHGs are also in-charge of cleaning drains, roads and footpaths.

    The garbage is stored in dustbins placed in every ward. A trash truck picks up the containers and brings them to a site within the city. Two compactors pack garbage from 20 containers into one truck, reducing the need for movement of trucks.

    Bidar generates around 40 tonnes of garbage everyday. The CMC has long-term plans to segregate this garbage and manufacture manure. “Now we are using sanitation fills to prepare manure. We plan to start harvesting very soon,” Commissioner S.R. Garwad said. “In a few months, we will distribute separate garbage bins for dry and wet waste to every household to segregate degradable and non-degradable garbage at the primary level. This will make manure production easier,” he said.

    “The journey to fame has been hard and slow. But we achieved it with the cooperation of council members, NGOs and SHGs,” Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta said. “We were helped by the Backward Regions Grant Fund of the Union Government. We could buy 19 vehicles and other high tech equipment costing around Rs. 2.5 crore using the grant,'' he said. Three years ago, Bidar had three tractors and two small trucks. Now, it has 40 containers, four dumper placers, 30 auto tippers, a nala cleaning machine, an earthmover, 20 mobile toilets, a multi purpose jetting unit that cleans roads and underground drains, and a vacuum suction sweeping machine.

  • GULBARGA: If things go as planned, Gulbarga will have a textile park shortly. The process of establishing the Gulbarga textile park at an estimated `52.10 crore has already commenced, following the approval of Karnataka government under Suvarna Vastra Neethi. SPV Private Limited is setting up the park.

    The main objective of the park is to enable small garment manufacturers of Gulbarga and surrounding districts overcome their organisational and structural dearth and augment and improve their traditional skills. SPV Private Limited will also help local manufacturers sell their products in the international markets.

    There are about 250 small and medium manufacturers in Gulbarga, involved in garment manufacturing, providing employment to more than 3,000 persons, particularly women. "The textile park will boost the economic development of the region. The park, which will come up on 50 acres allotted at KIADB's Nandur Kesaratagi industrial area, will have international standards with stateoftheart technology. There will be well developed plots depending upon the capacity and requirement of manufacturers with uniform factory sheds, wide welllaid roads and adequate water, according officials.

  • * ‘A few districts have remained backward on account of ineffective administration'
    * Chief Minister warns officials working in north Karnataka
    * Deputy commissioners and divisional commissioners told to prepare plans

    BANGALORE: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Tuesday admitted that the Government headed by him had not been properly responding to the grievances of the people, particularly from the Hyderabad Karnataka region, and a few districts had remained backward on account of ineffective administration.

    Mr. Yeddyurappa, who presided over a meeting on the development of the Hyderabad Karnataka region, said that a survey conducted by the Government revealed that lack of commitment among officials and apathy towards addressing peoples' grievances slackened the pace of development in the region. He would release the results of the survey in a week, he added.

    Apart from historical reasons, lack of focus on development led to backwardness of the Hyderabad Karnataka region, he said. The Chief Minister warned that officials transferred to north Karnataka would be dismissed from the service if they refused to report for duty. Lack of commitment to public welfare, non-transparent administration, and neglect of development projects, and delay in utilisation of funds caused imbalances in development, he said.

    Meet in Gulbarga

    A Cabinet meeting would be held in Gulbarga on October 4 to chalk out plans for the development of Gulbarga, Yadgiri, Bidar, Raichur, Koppal, Bellary districts in Gulbarga division and Bijapur district in Belgaum division, he said.

    Earlier, the Chief Minister chaired two Cabinet meetings in Gulbarga. Mr. Yeddyurappa said that he had received several complaints on collection of garbage, drinking water and other civic problems in Gulbarga city. All these problems should be solved before the Cabinet meeting and laxity on the part of officials would not be tolerated.

    Noting that infrastructure development was a pre-requisite for the development of the region, Mr. Yeddyurappa directed the deputy commissioners and divisional commissioners to prepare action plans district-wise for allocation of funds for various projects. Several development projects had been taken up in backward districts according to the recommendations of the Nanjundappa Committee.

    He said holding of elections in the State frequent was among other reasons for the slow progress.

    He asked district-in-charge ministers to visit their districts every week to review progress. The Government would continue to pressure the Centre to grant special status to the region under Article 371.

    All proposed development projects and schemes would be launched before the taluk and zilla panchayat elections to be held in December/January, the Chief Minister said.

    Coca-Cola to Build New India Plant

    By SANTANU CHOUDHURY

    NEW DELHI -- Coca-Cola Co. plans to invest a total of 5.5 billion rupees ($121 million) to build a new manufacturing facility in India and augment production capacity for soft drinks and non-carbonated beverages in one of its fastest-growing markets.

    The factory will be built in the newly-created Yadgir district in south India's Karnataka state and will increase Atlanta-based Coca-Cola's total investment in India to more than $1.2 billion, T. Krishnakumar, chief executive of Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd., told Dow Jones Newswires.

    "The company will invest 2.5 billion rupees to set up the facility," Mr. Krishnakumar said. "We have also provisioned to infuse an additional 3 billion rupees in the second phase."

    Hindustan Coca-Cola is the wholly-owned bottling unit of Coca-Cola in India, Asia's third-biggest economy.

    Mr. Krishnakumar said work on the new plant will start as soon as the company receives all the necessary approvals.

    Building the new factory, one of Coca-Cola's biggest manufacturing facilities in India, will help the company bolster its presence in the market and allow it to better compete with Pepsico Inc. Both beverage giants are looking to drive sales in emerging markets such as China, India and Russia, where growth is much faster than in the U.S.

    "The new manufacturing facility will help us cater to consumer demand in the states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra," Mr. Krishnakumar said.

    "By commissioning the plant, we want to ensure that we create adequate capacity to meet the projected growth in the packaged beverages market over the coming years," he added.

    Coca-Cola's sales volumes in India have grown in the past 16 quarters, most recently surging 22% during April-June this year after expanding 29% in January-March, Mr. Krishnakumar said.

    Separately, V. P. Baligar, Karnataka government's principal secretary of commerce and industry, said 250 acres have been allotted to Coca-Cola for the bottling plant.

    The company has informed the government that its initial investment of INR2.5 billion will be made until 2013, followed by an additional 3 billion rupees during 2013-15, Mr. Baligar said.

    "Coke's investment is very important, it should give a huge impetus to further investments in this region," he said.

    Hindustan Coca-Cola has 23 manufacturing plants, covering about 65% of Coca-Cola's geographical presence in India. Coca-Cola also has 22 independent franchisee bottlers and 11 contract packer manufacturers in the country.

    Mr. Krishnakumar didn't disclose the manufacturing capacity of the Karnataka factory but said it would add to the two bottling plants that the company operates in the state.

    The new plant will produce sparkling beverages, including Coca-Cola's carbonated-drinks, as well as still beverages such as Kinley water and Maaza mango-based drink, Mr. Krishnakumar said, adding that the facility is expected to give a boost to local food processing industries as well as sugarcane farmers and mango growers.

  • People in several north and central Karnataka districts had a respite Saturday after a week of heavy rains that claimed 17 lives and damaged property and crops estimated at over Rs.150 crore, officials said.

    Bellary, Raichur, Gulbarga, Bidar, Dharwad, Koppal and Haveri in the north, Davangere in central part and Shimoga in Malnad region were hit by heavy rains in the last seven days with rivers and tanks and lakes overflowing.

    Revenue officials of the districts said four people had died in Bellary, three each in Bidar and Gulbarga, two in Raichur and one each in Dharwad, Shimoga, Tumkur, Koppal, and Haveri.

    Several hundred houses have been damaged in the rain-battered areas. Crops in over 25,000 acres had also been hit, they said, adding that precise estimates of the damage will be available after a detailed assessment.

    'The loss would be over Rs.150 crore,' an official spokesperson said in Bangalore.

    The monsoon which hit the state in the first week of June has been erratic and the last week's heavy downpour in large areas brought relief also as several reservoirs got good inflow.

  • Jungle Lodges and Resort (“JLR”) will launch its lake view resort on 1st November on the banks of the Vilaspur Tank in Bidar in Karnataka.

    Jungle Lodges and Resort is an eco tourism agency, owned and managed by Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation. The Vilaspur Lake View Resort is JLR’s newest property and second resort in North Karnataka. JLR also owns Sloth Bear Resort in the ancient city of Hampi in Bellary district of North Karnataka.

    JLR has built the Vilaspur Resort with assistance from the district administration, who allotted seven acres of revenue land adjacent to the forest for building the cottages. The resort will have 18 cottages, that can accommodate two campers each.

    An official from the district administrations said, “We have retained ownership of the land. We also share 25 per cent of the total cost of the project estimated at Rs four crore.”

    Vilaspur Tank is situated about 15 kms from the city of Bidar and is located in the interiors of the Khanapur Reserve Forest surrounded by dense forest and hills on all four sides. The tank is spread over 35 acres and has a catchment area of 200 acres of land.

    Located in the lap of nature, the resort will have many nature related activities on offer for its tourist such as coracle rides and fishing in the tank and guided jungle treks. Campers will also be taken to see the various sites in and around Bidar including Bidar Fort, the Heritage Tombs at Ashtur and Choukhandi, Mohamud Gawan Madrassa, Amir Barid and Qasim Barid and the Baridshahi Deccan Garden. To further add to the appeal of the resort, water sport adventure activities may be developed in the Karanja Reservoir. Campers will also get to take part in boat races in the Paapnash Lake.

    Bidar is located about 110 kms from Hyderabad city, in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh state, which has risen to the ranks of a professional IT city. Jungle Lodges and Resort is trying to tap the young and corporate tourist of the IT industry. The Vilaspur Resort can be an outing for corporate companies as an offer of incentives and to develop team work among employees. That apart, it is also an attractive option for nature enthusiast to explore the large tracts of dense forest land in Bidar and Gulbarga.

  • Despite implementing various measures and carrying out so-called development works by the successive governments, Gulbarga city lacks basic amenities like drinking water, roads and drainage. The elected representatives feign ignorance about the plight of the residents of Gulbarga, who often reel under natural calamities.

    Clogged drainage and roads, overflowing manholes, slushy roads, roadside garbage dumps and unclean market yards greeted the politicians during their campaigns in Gulbarga, which will go to polls today.

    Many politicians who came for campaigning wondered as to how people live here. Former Union minister Jaffer Sharrief, who campaigned for Congress candidate Dr Ajay Singh, said politicians from this region lacked will to improve the life of people in this backward region.

    BJP leader Shoba Karandlaje, who went round the city seeking votes for her party candidate, expressed her concerns over the living conditions. "I never imagined that Gulbarga, being such a big city in the region, has remained underdeveloped. It looks like a big slum," she remarked.

    The city neither has a well-maintained drainage system nor a good water supply system. Residents of majority of the houses in new extensions have closed-pit toilets, while those in slums and old city areas go in search of open grounds or roadside bushes to relieve themselves.

    Ambedkar Nagar, the first extension planned and developed by City Improvement Trust Board in the early '70s, still has no tar roads, water supply system and drainage.

    Many houses use borewell water for drinking purposes. Over 60% of the city areas has no piped water supply system, though there is enough water in Bhima and Bennethora rivers. Less said the better on garbage collection and disposal.

    A Bidri artisan makes 850 mementos for Commonwealth Games

    EXQUISITE:Artisans prepare moulds of zinc and copper and etch designs on the surface in Bidriware

    Bidar: The XIX Commonwealth Games being held in Delhi next month have a Bidar connection. The VIPs and dignitaries visiting the games will carry home mementos hand crafted in Bidri art.

    National award-winning Bidri artisan Mohammad Abdul Rauf and his son Mohammad Abdul Bari have crafted 850 mementos of two distinct designs for the games. “Every guest at the Delhi games will carry a piece of Bidar back with him,” Mr. Rauf says proudly.

    The designs chosen by the Common Wealth Games Committee were that of an inflorescence and a pattern of lines emanating from the rising sun.

    They were emailed to Mr. Rauf who prepared a master mould and sent it for approval.

    Once approved, nearly 20 artisans worked on the project for a month. The mementos have just been shipped to a Delhi-based art dealer who will in turn supply them to the games committee. Mr. Bari said they sold each piece for Rs. 225. Bidri art is a handicraft of historical importance. Bidar is the home of Bidri craft. It was popularised by King Allauddin Behmani in the 14th Century.

    Artisans prepare moulds of zinc and copper and etch beautiful designs on the surface.

    Silver wires or plates are hemmed into the designs and the item is immersed in a chemical solution that contains the black soil from inside the Bidar fort.

    This gives the body a distinct black colour that does not fade away for over centuries. The silver pattern shines in the foreground, adding to the beauty of the artefact.

    Addressing presspersons here on Friday, he said a delegation of district-level officers, members of various organisations, intellectuals and experts from the district will submit the draft copy of the plan to Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on September 28 and make necessary changes in the draft after holding meetings with the authorities at the State level.

    The draft has been prepared after holding a series of meetings with the district-level officers and the members of various committees formed to implement the “Vision 2020” plan.

    It includes project proposals for supply of drinking water, providing good roads, drainage system, construction of cold storages for preserving export quality horticulture crops grown in the district and also providing good transport facilities, he said.

    In order to upgrade Bijapur city into an tourist destination, the officers of the Tourism Department and members of Vision 2020 committees have suggested that State and national highways, local roads, airport facility, and train services should be improved besides providing good accommodation for tourists in the district.

    Thermal plant

    Commenting on the 4000 MW thermal power plant at Kudagi village in Basavan Bagewadi taluk of the district, he said that the district-level officers have conducted a series of meetings of farmers of the village to settle compensation for the land that would be acquired for the project.

    Since the farmers of the village are demanding more compensation, the authorities will decide on the final amount that should be paid to the farmers depending on the present market value of the land and the cost of the land as mentioned in the records of the sub-registrar, he added.

    Mr. Nirani said that silt from the Don river would be removed after receiving a detailed report from the committee led by irrigation expert Paramshivaiah. Work on removal of silt from both Bennihalla and the Don River would be taken up simultaneously, he added.

    Basavan Bagewadi MLA S.K. Bellubbi, Nagtan MLA Vittal Katakdond and district-level leaders were present at the press conference.

  • Everonn to help with expertise for textile park

    T.V. Sivanandan

    It could help manufacturers forge tie-ups with retailers

    Manufacturers to be trained to meet Indian, international market standards

    Company to construct training centres, work spaces, common sheds

    GULBARGA: The proposed textile park on the outskirts of Gulbarga is set to get the required technical knowhow to enable it to meet the requirements of Indian and international markets.

    Thanks to an initiative by secretary of the Hyderabad Karnataka Development Board Shalini Rajneesh Goel, the Chennai-based Everonn Skill Development Ltd. has agreed to provide technical expertise as well as investment for the proposed textile park. The company has aided manufacturers in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh get tie-ups with leading retail outlets in India and abroad.

    Chief Operating Officer of the Everonn Skill Development Ltd. and the former director of the National Institute of Fashion Technology N.V.R. Nathan who was here to hold preliminary discussions with those involved in setting up the park in the Nandur-Kesaratigi Industrial Estate, told The Hindu that Everonn could help manufacturers get remunerative tie-ups with retail networks including Walmart, Ikea and Texco, as well as the Retailers Association of India. Besides, Everonn had a memorandum of understanding with Future Groups, one of the largest retail networks in the country.

    “Everonn is keen to support manufacturers in underdeveloped areas and help them achieve quality compliance and the statutory norms prescribed by global markets,” Dr. Nathan said. “Our experts will work as enablers and train the manufacturers to achieve the benchmark in providing quality products to capture international markets.”

    The company was ready to invest in training centres constructed on a build, own, operate, transfer (BOOT) model, as well as building working spaces. “Initially, the manufacturers need not invest in the construction of buildings to house their units. Once the manufacturer's economic condition improves, he can construct his own building,” Dr. Nathan said.

    He said Everonn had also offered to invest in the construction of a common working shed with all modern machinery and laboratory facilities, which would be made available to the manufacturers at an affordable cost. “This facility will also be constructed on a BOOT basis,” he said.

    Welcomed

    Office bearers of the special purpose vehicle created to take on the responsibility of establishing the textile park has welcomed Everonn's offer. The expertise would help the textile park take off immediately, they said.

    A boon to Bidar farmers

    Rishikesh Bahadur Desai

    Check-dams offer irrigation facilities, revive groundwater

    Over 200 check-dams have been built across streams in watershed areas

    Farmers have started growing crops that need a lot of water



    http://www.hindu.com/2010/09/27/images/2010092754400301.jpg
    Plentiful:The check-dam at Sundal village has become a mini-irrigation project for farmers.
    Bidar: New generation check-dams built to increase groundwater levels across Bidar district have changed the lives of farmers in the hot and dry taluk of Aurad.

    The taluk receives less than 700 mm of rain, the lowest in the district. There are over 200 check-dams built across streams and watershed areas in the region, which have helped recharge groundwater and ensure that open wells and bore wells do not dry up. Besides, some have even been turned into ponds that provide irrigation facilities for farmers.

    Vithal Rao Shetkar of Sundal is one of those who have benefited from the check-dams. Years ago, his family grew only those crops that did not need much water, such as jowar and black gram. However, after a check-dam was built near their village, the Shetkar brothers began to grow crops such as sugarcane and paddy that needed a lot of water.

    “The check-dam impounds so much water that the backwaters form a pond. We lower our pumpsets and draw water to feed the crops,” Mr. Shetkar told The Hindu. “Three years ago, we had to depend on rainfall to raise one crop. Now, we cultivate three crops as the check-dam holds water for ten months a year,” he says.

    Murli Ramachandra of Eklar village has a similar story. His brother had stopped cultivating a two-acre plot of land as there was no water. The bore well dug in the field had failed.

    Water supply

    However, thanks to a check-dam across the stream in his village, he now pumps water into his field. He can grow kharif crops including red gram and green gram, as well as other minor rabi grains.

    “This is apart from the rise in groundwater levels,” says assistant executive engineer Hanumanth Patil.

    “We never thought that check-dams would provide enough water for irrigation. Now, we are surprised by the results,” says zilla panchayat executive engineer Raju Dange. The cost-effective design of multi arch buttress check-dams, called Bidar model check-dams, has encouraged the State Government to build such water harvesting structures across the State, sources said.

    “Check-dams have benefited Bidar farmers immensely. We have taken a policy decision that all further check dams in the district will be built with the multi arch buttress design. We have set aside Rs. 1 crore for check dams this year,” zilla panchayat president Naseemoddin Patel said.

    Slum-dwellers demand permanent shelters

    Staff Correspondent

    Slogans raised against CMC's move to clear slums for beautification of city

    Bijapur: Members of the Bijapur City Slum Development Committee staged a dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office here on Sunday urging it to fulfil their various demands, including permanent shelter.

    The agitators took out a procession from Gandhi Chowk to the Deputy Commissioner's office and also raised slogans against the district administration and the City Municipal Council (CMC) for removing slums from the city calling it beautification.

    The agitators alleged that last year, the administration and the CMC removed all slums for the same reason and moved the people to temporary shelters at Gandhi Nagar without providing any basic amenities.

    The authorities had also promised that steps would be taken to provide permanent shelter as early as possible, they said.

    But even after a year, the authorities concerned have not identified the land for construction of houses for the slum-dwellers and have also not responded to the pleas of these people.

    With the district administration planning to develop the city into a tourist place, there is every possibility that more than 12,000 families may loose their houses during road widening and other development works.

    They demanded that steps should be taken to provide permanent shelters for people who had already lost houses and shift the 12,000 families to permanent shelters before taking up the work.

    The agitators also demanded that the authorities be instructed to provide drinking water, better roads, street lights and drainage facility to every locality in the city and to hustle the pending applications on pension schemes.

    A memorandum in this regard was submitted to Deputy Commissioner S.S. Pattanshetty. They threatened to intensify the agitation if the demands were not met.

  • BANGALORE: The state government will spend Rs100 crore over the next three years to develop six cities that have been identified as important from the heritage point of view.

    Kannada and Culture Minister Govind Karjol disclosed this on Wednesday. The cities where basic infrastructure will be developed are Gulbarga, Bidar, Srirangapatna, Bijapur, Kittur and Mysore.

    Karjol said the blueprint and action plan to develop the cities are ready. The cities would get drinking water facilities, approach roads, interior roads, toilets, parking lots, hotels and rest houses of international standards. The work would start in the beginning of financial year 2011.

    The gazetteer directorate had undertaken the task of computerising more than five lakh historically important documents, he said, adding that the documents include Tipu Sultan’s correspondence with the British. The project would cost `80 lakh. He said Hampi Development Authority's rules and guidelines will be framed in the next Assembly session.

  • The State Government will set up multi-skill development centres in Gulbarga and Bangalore in association with GTZ (German Society for Technical Cooperation) of Germany. The centres will conduct courses to develop skills among youth.


    GTZ is an international enterprise founded in 1975 by Erhard Eppler and owned by the German Federal Government, specialising in technical cooperation for sustainable development with worldwide operation.

    Labour Minister B N Bache Gowda said the centres would be constructed at a cost of Rs 64 crore. The Centre would share 50 percent of the funds. The institute would come up in two acres of land in Bagalakunte in Bangalore and in KIADB land in Gulbarga. Some of the courses to be offered in the centres are - electronics, automobile mechatronics and environmental engineering. These centres would begin classes from next academic year.

    Minimum educational qualification for these courses varies from SSLC to graduation.
    The minister said that the government had revised minimum wages for safai karmacharis and municipal workers of municipal bodies.

    The revised wages would come into effect immediately. The wages were last revised in May 2005.

  • The proposed greenfield airport in the City seems to be a non-starter. Civil works are yet to start on this project, which should have been commissioned by March 2010.


    Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa laid the foundation stone for the project on June 14, 2008. However, not a single stone has moved on the sprawling 693-acre project site near Srinivas Saradagi on Sedam Road about 12 km from the City in the past two years.

    The chief minister, during the ceremony, had announced that airport will be operational in 24 months and had even instructed the executing agency to advance the deadline by four months.

    However, much water has flown in River Krishna since then and the State Cabinet will meet for the third time in the City on Monday.

    Runway orientation

    The project taken up in Public Private Participation mode faces some rudimentary hurdles even after 27 months of its launch. Deputy Commissioner R Vishal told Deccan Herald that the delay was due to certain changes to be made in the orientation of the runway. The Director General of Civil Aviation has already inspected the project site and suggested to shift power lines in the vicinity. The KPTCL will take up the work soon after which the project would commence, he said.

    The decks for the project were cleared in May this year with the district administration and the Gulbarga Airport Development Limited (GADL) entering into a Lease Rental Agreement. The land has been given to GADL on a lease rent of Rs 15,111 per acre per year with an increase of 10 per cent every year for 30 years. However, the payment of lease rental has been deferred for the first 10 years in lieu of a bank guarantee for an equivalent sum, totalling to Rs 17.5 cr. The bank guarantee has been obtained to ensure that the GADL sticks to its commitment of completing the project in 24 months from May 2010, the DC said.

    The GADL, a consortium of private companies headed by Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) is said to have committed to operationalise the airport by May 2012.

    Investors shy away

    The inordinate delay in the completion of the project has badly hampered industrialisation of the district. The participants at the recently held Global Investors Meet were reportedly reluctant to consider Gulbarga as an investment destination due to absence of the airport.

  • Work on inter-State highway to start today

    T.V. Sivanandan

    Road connecting Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, via Gulbarga district to be upgraded

    B.S. Yeddyurappa to lay the foundation stone for the Rs. 240-crore project

    Hyderabad-based consortium to complete the work within two years


    GULBARGA: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa will set in motion the upgrading of the inter-State highway connecting Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, via Gulbarga district, when he lays the foundation stone for the Rs. 240-crore project on Monday.

    The highway will cover a distance of 139 km from Waghdhari in Maharashtra to Ripponpalli in Andhra Pradesh. Passing through Sedam, Gulbarga and Afzalpur taluks in Gulbarga district, it is considered an economically important road that will cut down the cost of cement transportation between the States.

    Owing to the bad condition of the road, especially in the Gulbarga stretch, the three main cement producers here — Rajashree Cements, ACC Cements Ltd., and Vasavadatta Cements — have to take circuitous routes to transport the material, adding to the cost of the cement when it finally reaches the consumers.

    Sedam MLA Sharanprakash Patil has been pushing for the project to be taken up under the public-private participation (PPP) model on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis for over eight years. Now, his efforts have paid off with the Government awarding the work to a Hyderabad-based consortium CVR to complete within two years.

    According to information available with The Hindu, the financial arrangements are being finalised and the consortium has started the spade work for construction.

    A full-fledged camp office has been set up at Ripponpalli in Andhra Pradesh and a hot mixing plant and quarry has been installed near the town.

    Dr. Patil said the consortium had set up four separate teams to take up the upgrading work simultaneously to hasten the process. Work will be taken up from Gulbarga towards Ripponpalli, Ripponpalli to Gulbarga, Waghdhari to Gulbarga and Gulbarga to Waghdhari.

    Other projects

    Apart from this, the Union Government has also sanctioned Rs. 150 crore for the upgrading of two important roads in Gulbarga district under the Central Road Fund (CRF).

    These are the Sedam-Yadgir Road, being upgraded at a cost of Rs. 67 crore, and the road from Hire Mannur on the borders of Maharashtra to Afzalpur town, at a cost of Rs. 82 crore.

    According to information available here, both projects will be monitored at the implementation stage by the National Highway Authority of India.

    Cabinet may sanction Rs. 300 crore for Yadgir

    Special Correspondent

    Rs. 400 crore expected for upgrading roads in Gulbarga

    Decision on revenue sub-division of Yadgir likely

    Gulbarga likely to get super-speciality hospital

    GULBARGA: The Cabinet meeting that will be held here on Monday for the third time, is likely to sanction Rs. 300 crore for the development of infrastructure in Yadgir district, which was carved out of Gulbarga district a year ago.

    Official sources told The Hindu here on Sunday that the Cabinet meeting, to be chaired by Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa, is also likely to take a final decision on declaring Shahapur as the revenue sub-division of Yadgir district and establishing the police sub-divisional office at Surpur. Both Shahapur and Surpur were strong claimants for the sub-divisional offices and the Government decision is expected to satisfy both areas.

    The sources said the Cabinet could sanction a package of Rs. 200 to Rs. 400 crore for upgrading all taluk roads connecting the district headquarters in Gulbarga district and pave the way for the establishment of industries including cement units and sugar factories.

    A decision on the proposed 1,320 MW super critical thermal power plant at Ferozabad in Gulbarga taluk could also be taken.

    At the meeting, the Cabinet could sanction 20 acres of land to the Union Labour and Employment Ministry for the establishment of a skills development centre in the city.

    However, the Ministers are unlikely to decide on the demand for providing an additional 20 acres of land for establishing the super-speciality ESIC hospital and medical education complex here.

    The city is also likely to get a super-speciality hospital. It could be established in the new government general hospital building. It is expected to help patients of the region, especially those covered under the Vajpayee ArogyaSri programme who have to travel to Bangalore for treatment at specialised centres.

    Irrigation projects

    The Cabinet is likely to clear lift irrigation projects at Navalgund and Gobburgumpi in Dharwad district, tank filling project in Huvina Hadagali taluk of Bellary district, a comprehensive rehabilitation scheme for those who have lost their houses owing to the irrigation projects, and announce a comprehensive scheme for the development of rural roads and drinking water projects in north Karnataka districts.

    More funds for modernisation of the police force in the State and upgradation of police stations are also likely to be announced.

    GULBARGA: The country's first fully-automated Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system and Distribution Control Centre (DCC) was inaugurated at the Gulbarga Electricity Supply Company (Gescom) by Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa here on Monday. The state-of-the art SCADA and DCC facility would help in keeping track of the electricity consumption and supply position in all the 110 kV, 30 kV and 11 kV stations. This would enable the authorities to monitor the power supply situation.

    The Chief Minister said it was a proud moment for Gescom to acquire such a facility and reiterated the commitment of the State Government to provide the latest facilities in the backward regions. The Chief Minister also laid the foundation stone for multi-storeyed buildings, which would have flats for slum-dwellers, at Gollarwadi. Mr. Yeddyurappa said the Government proposed to clear slums.

  • The Karnataka government on Monday decided to spend Rs.4,633 crore on 55 projects and programmes in the districts of north Karnataka for all-round development of the backward region.


    "To bring about overall development of the Hyderabad-Karnataka region and remove regional imbalances, we have decided to implement 55 projects and programmes involving Rs.4,633 crore," Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa told reporters after a three-hour long cabinet meeting at Gulbarga, about 700 km from Bangalore.

    This was the venue for a cabinet meeting for the third time since the first Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) assumed office over 30 months ago in May 2008. The first two meetings were held Aug 27, 2009 and Sep 26, 2008, when 59 projects were cleared for the region.

    The four districts of Bidar, Gulbarga, Raichur and Bijapur form the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, which became part of the then Mysore state during the re-organisation of states. A new district -- Yadgir -- was formed in 2009 out of Gulbarga.

    The districts were earlier part of the erstwhile Hyderabad state ruled by the Nizam till 1950.
    Among the major projects the cabinet allotted funds are the second stage of 'Niranthara Jyothi scheme' (Rs.920 crore) for providing uninterrupted power supply in rural areas, Rs.80 crore for setting up a super specialty hospital by Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences and Rs.60 crore for purchase of buses by the state-run North East Road Transport Corporation to improve public transport in the region.

    The cabinet also approved developing 700km of roads in the region and the adjacent districts of Bellary and Koppal for an unspecified amount.

    Approval was given to take up 30 projects under the centrally-sponsored national rural drinking water programme (NRDWP) at a cost of Rs.553 crore for supplying safe drinking water in villages across the region.

  • * It is now being tried out in 11 wards in Gulbarga city
    * The feasibility report for the project will be prepared by TCS
    * The corporation will require Rs. 150 crore to complete work

    GULBARGA: The dream of the people of Gulbarga city to get drinking water round the clock will soon become a reality, with the Gulbarga City Corporation deciding to extend the 24x7 drinking water scheme to all the 55 wards.

    Manoj Jain, Commissioner of the Gulbarga City Corporation, told presspersons here on Wednesday that at present the 24x7 drinking water scheme was being implemented in 11 wards. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) had been entrusted with submitting the feasibility report on the project, he added.

    Mr. Jain said that TCS had sought eight months to complete the study and submit their report, and based on the feasibility report the 24x7 drinking water supply scheme would be extended in phases to the remaining 44 wards.

    He said that at present the 24x7 drinking water supply scheme is being implemented in select wards in Gulbarga, Hubli-Dharwad and Belgaum City Corporation limits. However, unlike in Belgaum and Hubli-Dharwad, there was no shortage of drinking water in Gulbarga, which besides having a perennial source, the Bhima river, had the Bennethora river and the Bhosga tank as alternative sources.

    Funds

    Mr. Jain said that there was no shortage of funds for taking up the scheme. According to a rough estimate, the corporation may require Rs. 150 crore to extend the scheme to all the wards. The funds available under the Chief Minister's special package for tier 2 cities could also be used for implementation of the scheme.

    To a question, Mr. Jain said that the Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation, which was the nodal agency implementing the 24x7 drinking water supply scheme, would supervise the extension of the scheme to all the wards.

  • * Work to be completed within 36 months, as scheduled
    * Team was led by Union Labour and Employment Minister M. Mallikarjun Kharge
    * It also inspected the proposed additional 20 acres to be acquired to expand the hospital

    GULBARGA: A high-level team from the Union Labour and Employment Ministry led by Minister M. Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday reviewed the ongoing work on the construction of the super-speciality ESIC hospital and medical education complex. It also inspected the proposed additional land of 20 acres to be handed over for expansion of the hospital and the complex and the site where the proposed skill development centre would come up.

    The high-level team included the Secretary of the Labour and Employment Department, Director of the GET Skill Development Industrial establishment, senior officials of the Hindustan Steels, architects and engineers from the Government body that has been awarded the work for construction of the super-speciality hospital with its architects and engineers.

    Mr. Kharge said that heavy rain during July and August had slowed down the pace of construction. The contractors, however, in the review meeting assured that better progress would be achieved in coming months. The work would be completed as per schedule in 36 months, they said. Later, the team inspected the site adjacent to the 30 acres allotted for the super-speciality ESIC hospital and medical education complex. The architects were directed to be ready with their plans to start work as soon as the land is handed over by the Government. Mr. Kharge said although the State Cabinet had, in its meeting, decided to sanction 20 acres in the Gulbarga University campus, the land was yet to be handed over.

    In the 20 acres of additional land that would be given to the ESIC, the dental and nursing college, auditorium, hostel for boys and girls and quarters for the teaching and non-teaching staff would be set up. The Centre would invest Rs. 750 crore for infrastructure and Rs. 250 crore would be spent for purchase of instruments.

    Tirunelveli, Oct 22 (PTI) The Ministry of Planning is giving more importance to education, science and technology development as human resource is vital to bring the country to the forefront, Union Minister of State for Planning and Parliamentary Affairs V Narayanasamy said here today.

    The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan scheme for development of education among rural masses is being implemented in all states, he said.

    National knowledge networks and skill development would be carried out at a cost of Rs 5000 crore each, he said, adding 1,20,000 post offices were also being computerised.

    "Our software exports fetches 24 per cent of income out of the total foreign exchange. But due to the lack of hardware development, while comparing it globally, we have to depend on other countries which cost USD 500 billion for import," he said, declaring open a ''Digital Planetarium'' here.

    The Planetarium, developed at a cost of Rs 90 lakhs, is part of the National Council of Science Museums'' initiative in making Scientific knowledge in space and astronomy accessible to common man in remote parts of the country.

    G S Rautela, Director General, National Council of Science Museums, said digital planetariums were being developed at Gulbarga in Karnataka and Dharampur in Gujarat.

    A digital planetarium system is significantly more powerful than opto-mechanical planetariums as digital technology allows one to label and zoom in on any object in the sky for easy identification of heavenly bodies, a release said.

  • Land acquisition being speeded up: official





    883.25 acres of land has been acquired in Bidar district so far

    The project has been estimated to cost

    Rs. 369.78 crore


    GULBARGA: The Regional Commissioner of the Railways, Rajneesh Goel, has said that an all-out effort was being made for completing the long-pending project of laying a direct railway link between Gulbarga and Bidar. The Assistant Commissioner of the Gulbarga sub-division had been asked to expedite the land acquisition process in this regard, he added.

    In a statement issued here on Monday, Dr. Goel said that the railway authorities had promised to complete the laying of the 43-km railway line between Bidar and Humnabad by March 2011. The Bidar district authorities had acquired 883.25 acres of land and handed them over to the railway authorities for laying 53.1-km railway line in Bidar district.

    According to Dr. Goel, the work of laying the railway line, construction of platforms and roads was progressing briskly. The railway line between Gulbarga and Bidar will be 106.06-km long. Of this, the line in Bidar district will be 53.1-km long and Gulbarga 53.5 km.

    Financial approval

    The Union Government had given the financial approval for a broad-gauge railway line between the two cities in 1998-99 and the Railway Board had in 2003 given administrative approval for taking up the work at an estimated cost of Rs. 369.78 crore. However, compared to Bidar district, the progress achieved in the acquisition of land and laying of railway line in Gulbarga district is far less.

    In all, 1,195 acres of land is required for the 53.5-km railway line and the Railways had in 2003 released Rs. 5 crore for the purpose. So far, 160.13 acres of land in six villages had been acquired and handed over to the railway authorities and the work had begun in all these villages, Dr. Goel said.

    Proposal sent

    In January this year, the railway authorities had submitted a proposal to acquire another 850 acres and steps had been initiated to acquire the same invoking the emergency provisions of the Land Acquisition Act. The railway authorities had also been requested to release the funds required for payment of compensation to land-losers, he said.

  • Last year, it was voted as the 22nd cleanest city in India
    Bidar: Looks like Bidar is losing its distinction of being one of the cleanest cities in the country.

    Last year, the Union Urban Development Ministry recognised Bidar as the 22nd cleanest city in India. This feat was achieved with people's participation, innovative ideas and a responsive administration. The biggest contributing factor, however, was involvement of self-help groups in door-to-door garbage collection and cleaning of drains.

    But the City Municipal Council has now cancelled tenders given to SHGs and decided to give them to private contractors instead. This happened after some CMC members complained about the SHGs' poor performance. “The CMC tells us they will employ us to collect garbage while the maintenance of drains will be handed over to a private company. However, this has not happened yet,” said Sharanamma Dhodiba, member of the Sri Gurunath SHG. All members of this SHG have been out of job for over a month now.

    Also, the State Government has not filled the post of the environmental engineer in the CMC, which has been vacant for nearly six months. The hi-tech machinery bought by the CMC for cleaning drains and roads and trash compacting were not used as often as necessary as they had no dedicated maintenance staff. “Government has not sent us any staff,” a senior CMC officer said. The CMC dumped garbage in an open space near Sultanpur village. This was stopped after residents of the village protested, which disturbed the garbage collection for nearly two weeks. The CMC promised the villagers to shift the site away from the village and to process garbage in landfills. However, the landfills are yet to be provided.

    This has led to a situation where garbage piles are found along the roads, bins remain full for weeks, drains are clogged and sewage overflows on the roads in many areas.

    CMC president Sridevi Karanji said, “We are committed to keeping the city clean. We will take action against officials responsible for the delay in garbage clearance.”

  • Plans drawn up to widen roads, construct drains and raise a thematic park in district headquarters

    Government has approved Rs. 500-crore

    worth development projects

    Rainy season has hampered the progress of work, says Deputy Commissioner

    YADGIR: The most recently formed district in the State, Yadgir, is being developed as a model district. Even the district headquarters, Yadgir, is being developed with all basic amenities, including wide roads with drains, thematic park and a full-fledged sports complex of international standard.

    The man behind this thorough development is the first Deputy Commissioner, K.G. Jagadeesh, who was also the Special Officer here to do the preliminary work of creating minimum infrastructure facilities for its inauguration.

    Yadgir, which will be celebrating the first anniversary of its formation on December 30, is already witnessing vast change. At least on the infrastructure front, Yadgir will be a forward district, shrugging off the backward tag it had earlier. The Government has also been generous in granting funds for the infrastructure development in this district.

    Apart from approving infrastructure development projects worth more than Rs. 500 crore, the State Cabinet during its sitting here on October 4 gave clearance to another Rs. 305.86-crore worth project for improving the road network and other infrastructure facilities.

    Mr. Jagadeesh told The Hindu on Sunday that the State Government had already released Rs. 45 crore of the initial Rs. 500-crore proposal. Of this, Rs 30 crore had been earmarked for infrastructure development here and Rs. 5 crore each had been released for infrastructure development at Surpur, Shahapur and Gurmitkal. “The heavy rains this year had hampered the progress of work and all the tendered works are expected to be completed by January 2011,” he said.

    Apart from laying a 100-feet road with divider, parking facilities and drains here, a thematic park was being set up at Sanna Kere (small lake) at a cost of Rs. 2 crore. Another Rs. 4 crore is being spent on laying link and internal roads with drains, streetlights and stormwater drains in 17 slums here.

    Yadgir has been included in the 24 hours drinking water supply scheme to be taken up with the assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). A proper underground drainage (UGD) is being laid here a cost of Rs. 32 crore. A sports complex with the facilities for outdoor and indoor events is under construction in a 40-acre land. The district administration has decided to construct separate markets for vegetables and non-vegetarian items and the sale of mutton, beef, pork, fish, chicken outside the market would be prohibited. Work on the construction of a ring road, a lorry terminus and private bus-stands at four centres is under way on the city outskirts. “Trucks and private buses will not be allowed to park inside the city”.

    Vast potential:The water impounded in the Bhima Lift Irrigation Project reservoir near Sonna village in Afzalpur taluk of Gulbarga district.

    GULBARGA: The Bhima Lift Irrigation Project, which is expected to change the economic scenario in drought-prone Afzalpur taluk of Gulbarga district, will provide water to farmlands from June or July 2011.

    With an irrigation potential of nearly 24,300 hectares, the project, executed by Karnataka Neeravari Nigam Ltd., is the largest lift irrigation project on the Bhima and the second largest in the region after the Indi Lift Irrigation Project.

    Superintending Engineer of the Gulbarga Irrigation Project Zone B.B. Rampure told The Hindu the project was ready to be dedicated to the nation. By July 2011, in the first phase, over 5,000 hectares of land under the Balundigi Lift Irrigation Canal would be irrigated, and by July 2012 the entire command area of 24,300 hectares would be brought under the irrigation network, he said.

    Under Scheme A of the Bachawat Tribunal Award, the project has been allocated 6 tmcft of water; of this, 4.73 tmcft will be used to irrigate 24,300 hectares of land, while the remaining will be utilised for drinking and industrial purposes.

    Costs

    Mr. Rampure said the Bhima Lift Irrigation Project had been included in the Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP) this year. As a result, Rs. 100 crore was expected from the AIBP this year. Of this, Rs. 31 crore had been received till November.

    The original cost of the project in 1993-94 was Rs. 107 crore, but this had escalated to Rs. 588.73 crore now. According to information available, the authorities have spent nearly Rs. 200 crore so far.

    Work in progress

    The construction of a barrage across the Bhima near the Devangaon bridge has been completed. The installation of pumps to lift water from the Balundigi lift point and the Allagi lift point too is complete.

    Installation of electricity poles and conductors to the 33 kV power station near the Balundigi and Allagi lift points is in the final stages of completion. Construction of canals and distributaries is in various stages of completion, according to the official.

    In the 63.76-km Balundigi Lift Irrigation Canal, which will provide irrigation to 16,721 hectares of land, construction has been completed up to the 25th km. Construction of the 17 distributaries up to the 25th km has also been completed. Work on laying field irrigation channels is in progress.

    Mr. Rampure said tenders had been floated for the construction of the canal from the 25th to the 45th km. This would be completed by September next year. By July 2012, the whole length of the canal would be ready.

    Besides, construction of the 35.78-km Allagi Lift Irrigation Canal has already begun. This too is expected to be completed by July 2012.

  • Bidar: Deputy Commissioner Sameer Shukla has said that the State Government has agreed to release Rs. 15 crore for the development of Bidar under the additional central assistance scheme.

    Speaking to presspersons here on Thursday, he said “The Finance Department has written to the Tourism Department approving the release of the funds. We hope it will be released soon”.

    “The Central and State Governments had agreed to release Rs. 136 crore for the development of Bidar on the occasion of Gur-Ta-Gaddi celebrations three years ago. While the district administration took up Rs. 114 crore worth of works, the State Government released only Rs. 75 crore. So, the district administration wrote to the Finance Department that tendering of Rs. 114 crore works had been completed and that they could not be stopped or withdrawn. So, the Finance Department agreed to release an additional Rs. 15 crore,” Mr. Shukla said adding that funds are needed to complete the work undertaken.

    New roads

    On the occasion, Mr. Sameer Shukla announced the formation of three new ring roads in Bidar. The first stretch from Chikpet to Aliabad will be built at the cost of Rs. 7.15 crore. The 100-ft wide 13.5 km road will connect northern side of rural Bidar with the eastern part.

    The second 100 ft road will connect Bidar city to the Bidar-Srirangapatna State Highway. The road will start from the Karnataka Veterinary Animal Husbandry and Fisheries University, pass through Jamistanpur, Naubad and Kolar villages. The 4.5 km stretch of road will be built at a cost of Rs. 3 crore.

    The third road will connect Hyderabad road with Kumbarwada. A km long 80-feet road will cost Rs. 50 lakh.

    According to Sameer Shukla, people who have encroached upon the Bidar fort will be evicted from there and rehabilitated. Those people living there for several years will be given houses and other facilities.

    The Bhai Saheb Singh memorial, a mass kitchen, is being built at a cost of Rs. 1.4 crore.

    Ten million units of power produced since August this year

    Greenko Jasper Energy Private Ltd. is executing the hydel power project

    Power to be sold to Hescom at a cost of Rs. 2.80 a unit

    Gulbarga: Bhima Lift Irrigation Project comprises a barrage near Sonna village of Afzalpur taluk in Gulbarga district to irrigate 24,292 hectares of land in Gulbarga district. Power generation at the mini hydel power plant erected in the Bhima Lift Irrigation Project has begun even before farmers benefit from the Bhima Lift Irrigation Project. It is expected to produce 10 MW of power using the impounded water in the barrage near Sonna village.

    The mini hydel power project is being executed by the Hyderabad-based Greenko Jasper Energy Private Ltd., which has entered into a Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA) with the Hubli Electricity Supply Company Limited (Hescom) to supply power at a cost of Rs. 2.80 per unit with a provision to accelerate the cost of the power per unit by 2 per cent.

    Sources in the mini hydel power plant told The Hindu on Thursday that the three power generating units have been erected in the plant with a designed generating capacity of 3.5 MW each. Each of these units will require 40 cumecs of water to generate power.

    The generated power is evacuated through 33 kV power line to the Afzalpur Power Station. According to the sources, the plant is not operating to its full capacity and around 6 MW of power is being produced now as the storage of the water in the reservoir has been limited to 7 meters and once the storage of the water in the reservoir reaches the full reservoir level of 10 meters, power production in the mini hydel power plant will reach its peak of 10.5 MW.

    The mini hydel power plant became operational in August and since then 10 million units of power has been produced.

    Greenko has established several other similar power projects in Dakshina Kannada, Hassan, Bangalore rural districts across Nethravati, Kumardhara, Arkavati, and Hemavati rivers.

    The company proposes to take up the mini hydel projects at Kallur barrage across the Bhima in Jewargi taluk and Joladadgi barrage across the Bhima in Yadgir district.

  • All set for mining of uranium ore in Gogi

    T.V. Sivanandan

    UCIL is awaiting final clearance from Ministry

    Initial processing of uranium ore to be done at Saidapur, Diggi and Umaradoddi villages

    Study done by UCIL says there would not be significant radiological impact on local population

    SHAHAPUR (YADGIR DISTrict): Uranium Corporation of India Ltd. (UCIL) is all set to begin mining uranium ore in 40 hectares of land in Gogi village of Shahapur taluk in Yadgir district. The public hearing on the proposed project was held in Gogi village on November 18, and UCIL is now awaiting final clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Forests.

    Official sources told The Hindu here on Thursday that the ministry had already given environmental clearance for the exploratory mine in May 2007, and a formal application for mining in 39.133 hectares was submitted on February 24. Sources said that the UCIL, which at present has five mines in different locations in Jharkhand, was in the process of establishing two more mines: one each in Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand. It proposes to set up three more mines: one each in Andhra Pradesh, Meghalaya and Gogi in Karnataka. The UCIL proposes to mine 1.5 lakh tonnes of uranium extract in the form of sodium diuranate (SDU) concentrate (yellow cake) and send the SDU to Hyderabad for processing for use in nuclear power plants in the country. Initial processing of the uranium ore will be done at the processing plant to be set up at Saidapur, Diggi and Umaradoddi villages, 6 km from the mining area.

    Sources said the estimated cost of the project is Rs. 550 crore and the life of the mine is estimated to be more than 15 years.

    ‘No threat'

    Sources said there was no threat of radiation from mining uranium ore in Gogi. The initial study conducted by UCIL said there would not be any significant radiological impact on the local population. Besides this, the increase in background radiation owing to handling of radioactive minerals was expected to be insignificant because of the low grade of ore and stringent dust control measures. Radon (a radioactive element in the form of a gas) from the exhaust air from the mine will dissipate to near background levels within a short distance of the ventilation shaft.

    The UCIL has said that all unskilled-worker posts and 30 per cent of semi-skilled and skilled worker posts will be filled by members of families whose land is to be acquired for the project. Those who do not get employment will be given annual financial assistance. When contacted, Deputy Commissioner of Yadgir district K.G. Jagadeesh said the Government has begun the land acquisition process pending final clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Forests.

    Discussing strategy:(From left) Mukta Nidhi Samnotra, Director, Ministry of Textiles; V. Srinivas, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Textiles; and A.B. Joshi, Textile Commissioner; at a road show inBangalore on Friday.

    Bangalore: The integrated textile park at Gulbarga “will soon be a reality”, a top official of the Union Ministry of Textiles said on Friday. Participating in a road show for the new Scheme for Integrated Textile Park (SITP), Textile Commissioner A.B. Joshi said the park in Gulbarga was “at an advanced stage of development.” Officials in the Textile Ministry said similar parks were being considered at Shimoga, Tumkur and Bellary.

    Mr. Joshi said Karnataka, which has a “strong and vibrant weaving tradition, had taken the initiative in promoting textiles”. He said apart from the garment-manufacturing cluster in Doddaballapur, a power loom cluster was also emerging in the State.

    The new SITP scheme, which was launched recently, is aimed at providing a fillip to the industry so that it retains its global competitiveness, Mr. Joshi said. “The Technology Upgradation Fund (TUF), which has been in ‘ pause mode,' is likely to be resumed soon,” he remarked.

    The Indian textile industry is the largest in the world in terms of loomage, Mr. Joshi pointed out. He said spun yarn output in the current year increased by 7.3 year over the previous year, and that cloth production increased by 2.1 per cent.

    V. Srinivas, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Textiles, said the SITP, initiated in Public-Private Partnership mode, would enjoy Government support to the extent of 40 per cent of the project cost with a limit of Rs. 40 crore. The subsidy would not be available for land acquisition. The integrated parks would have facilities for cotton processing, ginning, weaving, fabric processing, garmenting and made-ups, Mr. Srinivas said.

    Mukta Nidhi Samnotra, Director, Ministry of Textiles, participated in the road show.

    Six textile parks on the anvil
    Bangalore, Nov 26, DHNS:

    A textile park at Gulbarga is on the verge of completion and will soon begin production work. Besides, a proposal for six Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP) is on the anvil.

    This is likely to be submitted to the Government of India, said D A Venkatesh, Commissioner for Textiles, Government of India, on Friday.

    Welcoming representatives from the textile industry, A B Joshi, Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, pointed out the steady growth of textile industry in India. “During this year, the country’s total spun yard production has recorded a growth of 7.3 per cent and the total cloth production has recorded a growth of 3.1 per cent,” he added.

    Joshi said the aim of the extension of SITPs was to reassess and reorient the growth strategy and make the Indian textile industry a world-class entity.

    “The Union Cabinet has approved the extension of SITP with an additional investment of Rs 500 crore and the first installment will be granted in March 2011,” said V Srinivas, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Textiles. The Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks was launched by the Government of India in September 2005.

    There are 40 SITPs across nine states in India approved by the Government of India with a total investment of approximately Rs 20,000 crores. The textile parks are expected to provide employment to 10 lakh people and earn a revenue of approximately Rs 33,000 crore per annum. Out of these 40 textile parks, production work has already commenced in 25 parks.

  • Gulbarga University included in CSIR project

    It will help develop ethanol as an alternative fuel

    GULBARGA: Gulbarga University has been selected by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) for the New Millennium Technology Programme, under which ethanol will be produced from agricultural waste to boost the production of the alternative fuel in the country.

    Project

    The Biochemistry Department of the university has been selected for the project along with other leading institutes such as the National Chemical Laboratory in Pune, the Institute of Chemical Technology in Mumbai, the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology in Thiruvananthapuram, the Regional Research Laboratory in Jammu, the Indian Institute of Technology in Guwahati and Madurai Kamaraj University. G.R. Naik, chairman of the Biochemistry Department, told The Hindu that the university had been selected for pioneering research in the field and identifying an enzyme that could convert sugarcane bagasse into soluble sugar.

    Production

    Ethanol could be easily produced from soluble sugar, he explained.

    Soluble sugar derived from sugarcane bagasse using the enzyme xylanase provided 5-carbon grade sugar, which can be directly converted into ethanol, he said.

    At present, ethanol is produced from molasses. Incidentally, Karnataka occupies a prime place in the production of ethanol, which it supplies to petroleum companies for use along with conventional petrol. The CSIR has recognised this work and included Gulbarga University in the efforts for production of second generation biofuel to replace petrol, he said.

    Results

    Prof. Naik said that the CSIR-initiated project was a network programme and scientists who have been included would be sharing their research work for better results.

    Research scholars have identified six varieties of plants that produce oilseeds to find a suitable biofuel plant.

    “We have also submitted a proposal to the State Government to convert the Biochemistry Department of Gulbarga University into a centre of excellence in biofuel technology,” he said.

  • Tribunal award: govt has tough task at hand
    TNN, Jan 1, 2011, 04.02am IST


    BANGALORE: Even as the Almatti dam is ready at the height approved by the Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal, it's going to be a gargantuan task for Karnataka government to acquire land in three districts of North Karnataka for implementing the award.

    As many as 8,000 houses in 22 villages and 10,000 pucca houses in Bagalkot urban pockets will have to go, to make way for acquiring 50,000-55,000 acres of land for irrigation. "This is going to be the most difficult implementation task for the government. The rehabilitation and resettlement (R and R) of persons in Bagalkot who were submerged by the Almatti is nothing compared to this," Karnataka State Finance Corporation MD S M Jaamdar, who was the main architect of R and R in Bagalkot told The Times of India here on Friday.

    Jaamdar said the Almatti dam at 524.26m, the height approved by the tribunal, was ready a decade ago. All that's required now is rewelding of the crest gates, which will require six months.

    But acquiring land to rehabilitate the villages, which are going to be submerged once water is stored upto that height, is going to be difficult. "Land value has appreciated and farmers are not willing to part with cultivable land. When we acquired land 12 years ago in 178 villages, it was cheap and the compensation was out-of-court consent award. Now lands have to be acquired in Bagalkot, Bijapur and parts of Belgaum," Jaamdar said.

    Besides, there was no national policy on R and R when the new Bagalkot town was constructed. The national policy which came into force from 2007 has stringent rules where land owners can take the government to court for inadequate compensation, Jaamdar said.

  • Surpur king Raja Pam Naik built Bonal tank in the 17th Century

    Water is provided from the Narayanpur Left Bank Canal

    Bonal: The State Government has sanctioned Rs. 1 crore for the development of the Bonal Bird Sanctuary near Surpur in Yadgir district, the second largest bird sanctuary after Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary in Mysore district in the State.

    The Forest Department officials said that infrastructure in the sanctuary will be developed.

    The sanctuary is a favourite jaunt for the migratory birds from distant countries.

    At least 21 species of birds visit the tank which is situated in a rural environment surrounded by rocky hillocks and irrigation rich agricultural fields.

    Deputy Commissioner K.G. Jagadeesh told The Hindu that the work of preparing a blue print for developing the Bonal Bird Sanctuary on the lines of the Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary has been handed over to the Karnataka Housing Board (KHB).

    The KHB has the authority to appoint an expert consultant to prepare the blue print. So, it has floated the tenders inviting the proposals from the consultants.

    The migratory birds which frequent the sanctuary included purple heron, white-necked stork, white ibis, black ibis, brahminy duck, bar-headed goose, Indian shag, snake bird, purple moorhen, Indian moorhen, large egret, pond heron, and cattle egret.

    It was only after a long struggle by the nature and bird lovers of the region and the Forest Department pursuing the issue doggedly that the State Government declared the Bonal tank as a bird sanctuary a couple of years ago.

    Till then the tank was a haven for poachers who indiscriminately hunted the migratory birds and the fishing activity in the tank posed a permanent problem for the birds.

    The Bonal tank was built by the Surpur king Raja Pam Naik in the 17th Century primarily to serve as an abode for peacocks that were in abundance in the region and a water hole for the wild animals.

    Later, the capacity of the tank was increased during the time of Captain Meadows Taylor.

    The biography of Taylor “Story of My Life”, notes that the waste weir of the tank was extended by 12 feet and the capacity of the tank was increased to 1,600 acres with an average depth of 12 feet.

    According to the figures available, only in 800 acres of the tank there is water and a lot of silt has accumulated in the entire tank.

  • Basavakalyan to be made more appealing to tourists

    Rishikesh Bahadur Desai
    Government plans to provide world-class facilities in the town
    Bidar: The State Government plans to develop the historical city of Basavakalyan into a world-class tourism centre.

    The State Government formed the Basavakalyan Development Board five years ago and provided it with seed money of Rs. 50 crore.

    The Board has been identifying historical monuments and protecting them, apart from undertaking projects to beautify the town. The road connecting the fort to the national highway on the outskirts is being widened. Illegal structures on both sides of the road have been removed.

    Compound walls have been built around all heritage structures related to the lives of the Sharanas. The caves where Lord Basaveshwara and other saints meditated have been cleaned and painted. Roads have been built to provide access. Construction of a ring road connecting all historic monuments is under way.

    Other plans

    Moreover, silt has been removed from the Tripuranta lake. Its banks have been secured with concrete double-lining. It now holds more water than it did last year. The museum near the fort has also been expanded. Sculptures and edicts that were found in recent excavations have been placed in the new annexe. Medicinal plant gardens have been developed in front of all the monuments. Plant varieties mentioned in the Vachanas and other religious literatures have been planted around the monuments and places of worship.

    Also, a Yatri Nivas for travellers is under construction. Work on several rooms has already been completed. A passenger information centre is coming up in the office of the Board. All tourist information will be made available on the website http://www.basavakalyantown.gov.in/.

    An expert committee comprising journalist Patil Puttappa, historian S. Shettar, retired director of the Archaeology Department A. Sundar, writer M.N. Javaraiah and geologist H. Chandrashekhar are advising the Board in drafting plans.

    Gulbarga fort to be restored

    Special Correspondent
    The ASI has sanctioned Rs. 10 lakh for the project

    State Government will restore one acre around the Ranamandal

    ASI has been urged to release more funds

    Regal:Regional Commissioner Rajneesh Goel atop the ‘Ranamandal' at the entrance of the Gulbarga fort.
    GULBARGA: The 14th century Gulbarga fort, which remained untouched by rival forces in the times of Bahamani dynasty and other rulers, is all set to regain its lost glory with the Archaeological Survey of India and the State Government joining hands for its restoration and beautification.

    The ASI had taken up restoration work on the majestic Jumma Masjid, a replica of the famed mosque in Cordoba city in Spain, standing tall inside the fort in the heart of Gulbarga city.

    Now the ASI has entrusted the responsibility of restoring the one acre around the ‘Ranamandal', an imposing rock-solid fortification at the main entrance of the Gulbarga fort, to the State Government.

    Regional Commissioner Rajneesh Goel who had taken special interest in restoration of the 14th century fort, told presspersons who visited the fort and Ranamandal area that the ASI has sanctioned Rs. 10 lakh for their restoration and beautification and fencing.

    At the base of the imposing Ranamandal, a rose garden is being developed in a one-acre plot with a beautiful lawn and a walking track. “The main fortification of the Ranamandal has been left untouched and the restoration work will be taken up wherever required,” he said. The Ranamandal played an important role in defending the fort from enemy attacks with three cannons placed in vantage positions.

    Funds

    These cannons made of iron are still intact and, according to the records available, were manufactured by artisans at Lohar Galli in Gulbarga. Mr. Goel said that the ASI was being moved to release more funds to take up restoration of the remaining 3 acres around the Ranamandal to make it a tourism spot.

    The fort, which has an outer wall and a moat all around, is one of the very few forts that had withstood the vagaries of weather espite very little being done to protect it.

    JOY TRIP:People enjoying a ride in the toy train at the theme park along the Sharanabasaveshwar
    GULBARGA: The Sharanabasaveshwar tank was one of the most contaminated water bodies in Gulbarga till the silt in it was removed a few years ago and a theme park established.

    The move has been a huge success with entertainment-starved people of Gulbarga making a beeline to the theme park and making it one of most successful ventures of the Government.

    The revenue generated as entry fee and the fee for boat rides has jumped from just Rs. 15 lakh in 2009 to more than Rs. 50 lakh in 2010. Chairman of the Sharanabasaveshwar Lake Development Authority Rajneesh Goel, who is also the Regional Commissioner, told presspersons here on Saturday that the number of visitors to the theme park had more than doubled from 2.6 lakh in 2009 to six lakh in 2010.

    The success of the this venture had prompted other districts to follow suit. Impressed by the concept, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa, during one of his visits to Gulbarga, asked the architect, Bharath Bhushan, who designed the theme park, to establish a similar one in his hometown Shikaripur in Shimoga district.

    Dr. Goel said that almost all the districts had made enquiries about the concept and the kind of investment needed to implement the project. Similar theme parks were coming up in Raichur at a cost of Rs. 1 crore and Yadgir at a cost of Rs. 2.5 crore.

    The facilities in the theme park were being upgraded. One more boat jetty with a food court had been opened at the Jagat Circle entrance. Another cruise boat was being added, which could be used for parties at an affordable cost. The cruise boat would be inaugurated on January 14 on the auspicious occasion of Sankaramana, he said.

    The tank, which already has two mobile floating fountains, will get another such fountain soon.

    Dr. Goel said that a musical fountain would be erected in the immersion tank near the theme park.

    The immersion tank is useful for only one month during the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations.

    Also, a “Meena Bazaar”, an open-air marketing concept, would be introduced near the musical fountain this year, he said.

    There was also a proposal to create an artificial walkway into the tank, Dr. Goel said.

  • Bidri artisans to take part in Republic Day parade for the first time


    Tableau will contain Bidriware items such as boxes, hookah, a peacock, and flower vases

    Sundari Vadana and Shehnai artistes to

    perform in front of the trolley

    Bidar: For the first time, the Karnataka tableau at the Republic Day parade in New Delhi will feature Bidriware and Bidri artisans from Bidar.

    The tableau will feature Bidriware items such as designer boxes, a hookah, a peacock, flower vases and a cup. It will also have three artisans working on Bidriware. Sundari Vadana and Shehnai artistes will perform in front of the trolley, Information Department officials said.

    Training

    A team led by National Award-winning Bidri artisan Rashid Ahmed Qadri has left for Delhi to train for the parade.

    “Preparations for the tableau started in September last year,” Deputy Director of Information S.V. Lakshminarayana said.

    “A selection committee from the Defence Ministry chose Bidriware from the five proposals submitted by the Department of Information.

    “Later, a committee comprising handicraft experts held a series of meetings on finalising the design of the tableau. Shashidhar Adapa has designed the tableau. Bangalore-based Sanjay Marketing is building the tableau on a vehicle provided by the Defence Ministry,” the officer said.

    The people of Bidar are happy. “It is the first time either Bidar or Bidri have been made it to the Republic Day since it started in 1950,” said historian B.R. Konda.

    Bidriware

    Bidriware articles are made from an alloy of bronze and copper, onto which silver patterns are inlaid.

    Artisans make moulds of bronze and copper and dip them in a chemical solution containing black soil from under the Bidar fort. This gives the item a lasting black colour. Because of its indelible link to the historical town, Bidriware has been granted a Geographical Indication certificate. Bidriware originated in ancient Persia. It was brought to India by the followers of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. Artisan Abdulla Bin Kaisar of Ajmer who relocated to Bijapur brought the art along with him. He trained Shivanna, a local goldsmith and his family members.

    In the 15th century, Bahmani King Shah Allaudin the second recognised it as royal art and appointed Bidri artisans in his court. Mahamud Gawan, the prime minister of the Behmani Kingdom, began a scheme of providing honorarium to senior artisans and scholarships to students who were learning Bidriware.

    The State Government has settled the artisans in the Bidri colony outside the city. It provides them with metals at subsidised rates and buys their products. Bidriware can be purchased online on the Karnataka government's Cauvery emporium website.

  • Bidar: Jungle Lodges and Resorts (JLR) will inaugurate a property in the Khanapur forest range in Bidar on March 1.

    “Online bookings for the blackbuck resort will start from Wednesday,” Deputy Commissioner Sameer Shukla said here on Tuesday. It will be formally inaugurated later. JLR officials will take a decision on who will inaugurate the resort and when, Mr. Shukla said.

    He was speaking to journalists after inspecting work on the lakeside property.

    According to him, the property on the banks of the Vilaspur lake will have 18 cottages of three categories and one royal suite. The blackbuck resort is the first JLR property to have a royal suite. The resort is situated on seven acres of revenue land gifted to JLR by the district administration. The tariff ranges from Rs. 2,750 to Rs. 3,250 per person per day for the cottages. Tariff for the suite is yet to be decided.

    Each cottage has a waiting room, double bed, wash room, and a balcony that opens to the water front. “The specialty of this resort is that each cottage is on the water front. Cottages are designed in such a way that privacy is ensured for each cottage. One balcony is not visible from the other,” he said.

    JLR is offering joy fishing, coracle rides, nature treks and star gazing in the Khanapur forest. Wildlife tour guides will accompany campers to blackbuck spotting and bird watching in the woods around the resort.

    Water sports will be organised in the Karanja dam. JLR will take campers to guided tours around national monuments in Bidar, including the Bidar Fort, Mahamud Gawan Madrassa and the Ashtur tombs.

    The cost of the project is around Rs. 3.5 crore. Of this, Rs. 2.75 crore has been spent. “We have sought assistance from the Union Government and are hopeful of getting around Rs. 1.2 crore,” Mr. Shukla said. As many as 10 youth from surrounding villages are employed here, he said.

    Bookings can be done from Wednesday on www.junglelodges.com. Details can be had on Ph: 080 40554055, 9449599774.

  • Jungle Lodges resort coming up near Bidar


    The seven-acre resort will have 18 cottages

    It is aimed at drawing young tourist in Hyderabad


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Bidar: Jungle Lodges and Resorts Limited, Government-run eco tourism agency, plans to inaugurate its lake view resort on the banks of the Vilaspur tank in Bidar on November 1.

    Vilaspur resort is JLR's newest property. It is JLR's second resort in North Karnataka after the sloth bear resort in Hampi in Bellary district.

    “We will complete work on the property before October 31. We plan to inaugurate it on November 1,” said JLR Managing Director N.D. Tiwari. He told The Hindu that the property would have 18 cottages that could accommodate two campers each.

    Mr. Tiwari said the project was taken up with the assistance of the district administration that allotted seven acres of revenue land adjacent to the forest for construction of cottages. “The then Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta took the initiative. Otherwise, it would have taken us sometime to plan and build a resort in Bidar,” he said.

    “We have retained ownership of the land. We also share 25 per cent of the total cost of the project estimated at Rs, 4 crore,” district administration sources said.

    Vilaspur tank is situated deep inside the Khanapur reserve forest, and is surrounded by hilly forest on all four sides. The tank is spread on an area of 35 acres and has a catchment area of over 200 acres of land.

    By building cottages in such wilderness, JLR is trying to tap the young tourist in the IT and related industries in Hyderabad. Vilaspur is 15 km from Bidar. Bidar is 110 km Hyderabad.

    Apart from the jungle walks, the resort will offer attractive experiences like coracle rides and fishing in the tank. Campers will be taken to the Bidar fort, the heritage tombs at Ashtur and Choukhandi, Mohamud Gawan Madrassa, Amir Barid and Qasim Barid and the Baridshahi Deccan garden. Campers will get to take part in boat races in the Paapnash lake. “We are exploring possibilities of arranging water sports in the Karanja reservoir,” the officials said.


    “The resort will boost tourism in this part of the State,” said Conservator of Forests, Gulbarga circle, A. Radha Devi. Most people don't know that there are large tracts of forest land in Bidar and Gulbarga.

    The resort will correct the image of Bidar from a hot dry district into a green humid district,'' she said.

    Online reservation for the Vilaspur resort will start soon on www.junglelodges.com. Details can be had from the JLR corporate office (ph: 080 40554055).

  • Gescom witnesses record increase in revenue collection

    Special Correspondent

    Increased efficiency in collection, reduced T&D losses are reasons

    ‘Tariff increase was not the main reason for the increased revenue'

    GULBARGA: Mounish Mudgil, Managing Director of the Gulbarga Electricity Supply Company (Gescom), has said that the company has seen a record collection of more than Rs. 100 crore , apart from government subsidies, achieving a record increase of 25 per cent in revenue collection in a month.

    Mr. Mudgil said here on Wednesday that this was made possible by increased efficiency in collections; reduced transmission and distribution losses; improved and accurate meter reading of consumers; higher consumption by industries due to assured power supply; and overall increase in the quantity of supply of power to consumers other than the industries.

    Mr. Mudgil said the increase in tariff allowed by the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission in December 2010 had only helped increase the revenue collection by merely about 2 per cent. The tariff increase was not the main reason for the increased revenue inflow, he said. He said that during February 2011, local revenue, other than the government subsidies, collections had surpassed Rs. 100 crore, which was a record increase in comparison to the average monthly collection of about Rs. 75 to Rs. 80 crore. The monthly average collection during 2009-10 was Rs. 70 crore.

    Distribution losses in the financial year 2010-11 had been brought down by about 4 per cent from 25.6 per cent.

    Royal mosque gets a new lease of life



    Department of Archaeology, Museums and Heritage takes up restoration work


    http://www.hindu.com/2011/03/03/images/2011030351660501.jpg
    Renovated:The row of 90 domes atop the Shah Bazaar Mosque that have been restored by the Department of Archaeology in Gulbarga.

    GULBARGA: The Shah Bazaar Mosque built exclusively for the royal family of Bahamani dynasty in the 14th Century, which was in a bad shape owing to lack of maintenance, has got a new lease of life, thanks to the Department of Archaeology, Museums and Heritage.

    The imposing structure abutting Shahi Bazaar (Royal Bazaar), which is now known as Shah Bazaar, was till recently a picture of neglect with people using the surroundings as an open toilet. There was the threat of the structure collapsing because of the leaking roofs.

    Efforts by people such as Mohammad Ayuzuddin Patel, an artist and photographer, and Mujeebudin, who took upthe issue with the Archaeological Survey of India and the State Department of Archaeology, Museums and Heritage, forced the authorities to take up restoration of the structure and some of the historic monuments in and around Gulbarga.

    While the ASI has taken up restoration of Jumma Masjid inside the Gulbarga Fort and some of the monuments maintained by it, the State Department of Archaeology, Museums and Heritage has taken up work on at least four monuments.

    Although the Shah Bazaar Mosque cannot match the grandeur of the Jumma Masjid inside the Gulbarga Fort, which was also constructed by the Bahamani rulers, the former is one of the oldest mosques and was constructed before the Jumma Masjid.

    The Shah Bazaar Mosque is famous for the unique architectural style of the Mughals. One of the features of the mosque is that its roof was covered with 90 small inconspicuous domes in juxtaposition with the imposing dome on the main gate. All these small domes were leaking, threatening the entire structure, which could easily accommodate 3,000 people during the religious congregation and Friday prayers. The authorities have repaired all the domes and resurfaced the entire roof with the mortar of limestone mixed with sand and jaggery.

    The simplicity of this mosque creates an imperial aura.

    The mosque has 15 arch-shaped entrances. The pillars between the arches are so designed that it does not obstruct the view to the pulpit. A compound wall has been constructed around the Shah Bazaar Mosque to ensure sanctity of the place of worship.

  • Work on Gulbarga airport starts from April 1
    hindu (http://www.hindu.com/2011/03/28/stories/2011032853020500.htm)

    At long last: The airport will be constructed on 693 acres of land at Srinivas Saradgi village on

    GULBARGA: The construction of the much-delayed greenfield airport on the outskirts of Gulbarga is scheduled to take off on April 1.

    The airport will be constructed on 693 acres of land at Srinivas Saradgi village.

    Official sources told The Hindu here on Sunday that a high-level team from Gulbarga Airport Developers Ltd. (GADL), a conglomeration of financial companies and infrastructure developers who have been awarded the contract for construction, would arrive here soon to begin work on the runway and other infrastructure.

    Within two years

    In May 2010, the State Government inked a memorandum of understanding with GADL in this regard, with a condition to complete work within two years. A spokesperson of the GADL said the group was confident that they would complete the construction of all facilities within the stipulated period and introduce air services to the people here.

    GADL has also assured the State that the runway will be complete by May 21.

    According to sources in the State Government, once the runway is complete, a team from the Airports Authority of India would visit the site and give its final nod for the installation of infrastructure that would enable the landing and taking off of aircrafts.

    GADL is also expected to start negotiations with air service operators when construction work takes off.

    As per latest details available, the airport is likely to be made operational as soon as June 21 this year.

    Remaining land

    The initial proposal suggested that the airport would come up on 400 acres. GADL is yet to decide on how to use the remaining 293 acres available. The group plans to take up a feasibility study of the remaining land. There was also a proposal to increase the area for the airport by adding more facilities, sources said.

    The Gulbarga airport would initially have a medium-sized runway of 1,550 m, which is sufficient to operate ATR 72 aircrafts. In the second phase, the runway length would be extended to 3,100 m, to enable larger aircrafts such as those from Airbus and 737s to land. The second phase will be taken up based on demand and the traffic situation after five years.

  • Digital Planetarium in Gulbarga Science Centre Launched (http://www.gulbarga.info/gulbarga-news/digital-planetarium-in-gulbarga-science-centre-launched/)

    Digital Planetarium in Gulbarga Science Centre Launched. Science lovers and students of the region will soon be transported to a spectacular celestial world as they get an opportunity to explore galaxies in the state-of-the-art digital planetarium at the District Science Centre here.

    http://www.gulbarga.info/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Planetarium-Gulbarga-Science-Centre-580x435.jpg

    The planetarium was inaugurated on October 26, 2010 by Union Labour and Employment Minister M. Mallikarjun Kharge. After the District Science Centre at Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, the one in Gulbarga will be the second in the country to get a planetarium of this kind, established at a cost of Rs. 90 lakh. Some of the features of this Planetarium are -

    8 mini films
    20 min of each session
    55 seats
    Daily 5 shows
    Priced Rs.10 for general people, Rs.5 for Students

    According to officials of the National Council of Science Museums, which runs the district science centres throughout the country, similar planetariums will be established at 11 other centres. The digital planetarium is significantly more powerful than an analogue one with the pinhole system. It allows a visitor to label and zoom in on any object in the sky for easy identification, or even manipulate planet trails. There are over 100 images of deep space and it shows details about annual motion including retrograde planetary motion. As it has an integrated multimedia player, it allows for the display of videos and pre-recorded shows, offering a special experience. “It not just displays but ‘takes’ you to the surface of any object…[it is] beyond imagination,” said a senior official of the National Council of Science Museums, speaking to The Hindu here on Sunday. It would revolutionise the way astronomy is taught, he said.

  • Gulbarga to get skill development centre
    Hindu (http://www.hindu.com/2011/04/05/stories/2011040556550300.htm)

    GULBARGA: Everonn Skill Development Ltd., which has been mandated by the National Skill Development Commission to take up intensive programmes throughout the country, will establish a centre to provide training in sewing machine operations and retail to unemployed youth in the city.

    N.V.R. Nathan, chief operating officer of Everonn Skill Development Ltd., told The Hindu here on Monday that the skill development centre would be inaugurated as part of the three-day Gulbarga Utsav on April 16.

    “We chose training in sewing machine operation and retail keeping in view the requirements of an apparel park coming up in Gulbarga ,” he said.

    Dr. Nathan said work on establishment of the park would take at least a year to be launched. Hence, Everonn would provide placement to the trained youths in companies in Hyderabad and Bangalore. These youths would be provided a minimum salary of Rs. 3,800 per month with free accommodation.

    To a question, Dr. Nathan said 64 youths would be provided training at a time. Dr. Nathan said Everonn had decided to establish 30 such training centres in different States, including Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Jammu and Kashmir, and a few north-eastern States.

    He said that like in Gulbarga, where the Jana Shikshana Samiti was the partner in the initiative, many educational institutions had come forward to partner with Everonn in providing training to youths in Jammu and Kashmir, who have been affected by terrorist activities, and north-eastern States, affected by the left-wing and extremist violence.

    “We want to channelise the youths in these troubled States towards purposeful activities and provide them avenues of gainful employment,” he added.

    In Jammu and Kashmir, youths would be trained in hospitality and retail sector. Many companies like Shoppers Stop, Lifestyle, Megamart and Reliance had come forward to provide placement to the trained youths. “Everonn also has a tie-up with the Retailers' Association of India,” he added.

    Chennai firm proposes 300-MW plant in Yadgir

    Special Correspondent


    Ravi Power and Steel seeks approval for Rs. 1,600-cr. project
    Power purchase agreement with buyers expected six months prior to commissioning of project

    It picked Yadgir considering the region's potential as a major industrial hub, say sources

    GULBARGA: Chennai-based Ravi Power and Steel Private Ltd. has come forward to establish a 300-MW thermal power plant at a cost of Rs. 1,600 crore in Yadgir district and has submitted a detailed project report to the State Government for approval.

    Official sources told The Hindu here on Tuesday that the company, a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) promoted by the OPG Group, has the required expertise in running power plants.

    New plant

    OPG Power Generation Private Ltd., another SPV under the same group, is setting up a 2 x 80 MW coal-based power plant at Gummidipoondi near Chennai.

    According to the sources, the reason Ravi Power and Steel decided to establish its power plant in Yadgir was because the Gulbarga region was an emerging industrial hub, besides its proximity to coal mines, availability of water and grid stations. The company also wanted to make full use of the concessions extended by the State Government for the industries coming up in the region.

    The OPG Group decided to take up power generation and sale in a big way and started its first project under the liberalised regime with an 80-MW power project at Gummidipoondi near Chennai, which has been operational since April 2010. The second 80-MW unit in Gummidipoondi would be operational in June 2011. Other projects in Tamil Nadu and Gujarat are at various stages of development.

    The OPG group is in discussion with various cement, steel, soya, textile, and spinning plants for sale of power, besides selling to the national and State grid. The tariff in Karnataka is around Rs. 5 a unit while the company would charge Rs. 4.50 a unit.

    Cheaper

    As gas-based power production is costlier in Karnataka, the company decided to adopt thermal power generation. It is expected to enter into a power purchase agreement with buyers six months prior to the commissioning of the project.

    Raw materials

    Sources said although it has been decided to use domestically available coal in the proposed power plant at Yadgir, the company would also use imported coal as and when it became necessary.

  • Telangana firms want to relocate to State: official



    Pharma park planned in Yadgir to house some of the units

    Medical instrumentation, medical electronics identified as new avenues of investments

    Task force to be set up to tap investment potential in the sectors

    GULBARGA: The State Government has identified medical instrumentation and medical electronics along with aerospace as new avenues of investments in the industrial sector and foresees an investment of more than Rs. 10,000 crore in medical instrumentation and medical electronics-based industries alone, along with investments expected in aerospace industries.

    Commissioner for Industrial Development and Director of Industries and Commerce Rajkumar Khatri told The Hindu here on Monday that the Government had decided to constitute a task force to tap the investment potential in medical instrumentation and medical electronics sectors.

    Aerospace

    Another area which has promising potential in investments was the aerospace sector and Rs. 6,400-crore investment has been assured in the sector.

    To a question, Mr. Khatri admitted that there were offers from a few companies in the Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh to relocate their industries to Karnataka due to the troubled atmosphere prevailing in the region owing to the agitation for a separate Telangana State. “Although we did not want to fish in troubled waters, when the industries themselves want to relocate, we have no other option left but to find a suitable place for them in Karnataka… We have decided to establish a pharma park in Yadgir to locate some of the pharmaceutical companies shifting their base to Karnataka from Telangana,” he added.

    Mr. Khatri said the bold moves by the State Government in the post-recession period inviting investments in different sectors was paying dividends and of the 389 memorandums of understanding (MoU) signed in the Global Investors Meet (GIM) worth Rs 3.9 lakh crore, 227 MoUs had taken off and were in various stages of implementation and 16 major projects, including the Rs 400-crore Nestle company's noodles manufacturing unit in Mysore had started production.

    He said that the Government had initiated measures to identify potential partners in drawing investment and expertise to Karnataka within the country and abroad. In India, the State Government had identified the CII, FICCI, KASSIA and other trade organisations as its partners and identified organisations and trade bodies in other countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Japan and others to help the investors in getting the right kind of information about the opportunities available in Karnataka for various industries.

  • Finally, Bijapur will taste the masterplan

    BIJAPUR: A much-awaited masterplan was approved at the municipality general body meeting recently.

    It was discussed that due to the high population and expansion of localities, city roads certainly become smaller as compared to what it was years ago. The masterplan will be implemented according to guidelines followed in other cities such as Belgaum and Bidar, says city MLA Appasaheb Pattanashetty.

    He also stated that according to the instruction of committee headed by deputy commissioner, this plan will be implemented in the city and there will be no injustice meted out to any family during the process.

    The Bijapur Municipality has identified 22 major roads in which the masterplan will be implemented.

    These roads were: Mahatma Gandhi Road (starts from KSRTC workshop to Railway Bridge), Gandhi Chowk to Managuli Agasi (via Tippu Circle and Anjuman High School), Bagalkot Cross police chowki to RTO office, Water tank to Babaleshwar Naka, Gandhi Chowk to Darga Cross (via Azad Road), Gandhi Chowk to Ashram (via Siddheshwar Road), Gandhi Chowk to Indi Road (via APMC).

  • 1,141 Infosys-built houses to be given to flood-hit

    Special Correspondent
    Yeddyurappa, Infosys officials will take part in function today
    The hallmark of the construction is its quality

    Construction of houses in Raichur and Yadgir districts in final stages of completion

    GULBARGA: The Infosys Foundation, which had volunteered to build houses for families displaced in the floods of October 2009, has completed the construction of 1,141 houses in 11 villages on the banks of the Bhima and its tributaries.

    These houses will be handed over by Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Friday at Ferozabad village, 25 km from Gulbarga. The handover of Aasare houses to beneficiaries will take place in the presence of senior Infosys officials, including Chief Executive Officer Kris Gopalakrishnan, T.V. Mohandas Pai and Ramadas Kamath.

    Completed

    Official sources told The Hindu on Thursday that the Infosys Foundation was one of the major donors to have taken up construction of more than 2,250 houses in 18 flood-affected villages in north Karnataka by investing more than Rs. 30 crore. It had already completed construction of 425 houses in 20 villages of Navalgund taluk in Dharwad district, 70 houses at Biranagaddi village in Gokak taluk in Belgaum district, and 108 houses at Balawadi village in Chitapur taluk in Gulbarga district, all of which had been handed over to the beneficiaries.

    Quality

    Of all the groups that offered to provide housing to the flood-affected, it was the Infosys Foundation which stood by its commitment. The State Government was saved from the embarrassment of delays in handing over the houses after some donors failed to take up construction, and handed over the money for construction of these houses to government agencies instead.

    Officials from the Infosys Foundation said it had been a challenging task to take up the construction of the houses under adverse conditions and with the escalating cost of raw materials such as steel and cement.

    The hallmark of the construction by the Infosys Foundation is its quality.

    Most of the house construction in flood-hit areas in Gulbarga and Yadgir districts have been taken up by Infosys. Out of the total 2,250 plus houses being constructed by Infosys, as many as 1,494 houses were being constructed in Gulbarga and Yadgir district alone.

    Attached to the houses constructed by the Infosys Foundation in the new layouts, the Government has provided 30 X 50 ft plots for the beneficiaries to take up extension of their houses at a later stage. Each 250 sq ft house contains a hall-cum-kitchen, a bedroom, bathroom and a toilet. Apart from building houses, Infosys intends to provide accessories such as solar lanterns and smokeless ‘chulhas' to the beneficiaries.

    Sources in the Infosys Foundation said that with the delivery of 1,141 houses on Friday, the total number of houses delivered by the foundation would be more than 1,700. The construction of the remaining houses in Raichur and Yadgir districts was also in the final stages of completion and they would be delivered by May-end.

    Taking shape: Construction of the runway at the proposed airport at Srinivas Saradgi village on the outskirts of Gulbarga is proceeding at a brisk pace.
    GULBARGA: The work on the runway at the greenfield airport at Srinivas Saradgi village on the outskirts of Gulbarga is going on at a brisk pace.

    The aim is to complete construction of the 1,000-metre runway by May 10 to enable Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa's chartered aircraft to land there on May 22.

    P. Umamahesh, project manager of Frischmann Prabhu Pvt. Ltd., consultants for the Regional Airport Holding International (RAHI), said: “We are working day and night to meet the target of completing the runway by May 10.”

    Mr. Umamahesh told The Hindu that the firm had worked on similar projects with the GMR Group, and added that besides taking care of the logistics to construct the runway and other infrastructure, the engineering staff would monitor the quality of construction at every stage.

    To a question on installation of navigation equipment to enable landing of aircraft, Mr. Umamahesh said that experts from RAHI would arrive here in a couple of days, look into these issues and take a final decision.

    MoU

    The State Government in May 2010 inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Gulbarga Airport Developers Ltd. (GADL), a conglomeration of financial companies and infrastructure developers, for the construction of the airport with the clear condition that work would be completed in two years.

    A GADL spokesperson said that they were confident that the construction of the runway and other facilities would be completed within the stipulated period of two years. Official sources said that the estimated cost of building the airport, initially designed to handle smaller aircraft, was over Rs. 25 crore.

    As per the initial proposal, the airport would have come up on 400 acres. The GADL has not yet finalised how to use the remaining 293 acres. It will take up a feasibility study. According to sources, nothing has been finalised. There is also a proposal to increase the area for the airport by adding more facilities.

  • Bidar: The State Government has taken up an ambitious project to develop and beautify taluk headquarters as part of long-term development plans, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa said here on Saturday.

    “It is not enough if the big cities and district headquarters are developed. We must make sure the taluk headquarters are developed too,” Mr. Yeddyurappa told officials at a review meeting in the zilla panchayat.

    “We want these towns to have wider and cleaner roads, drains, gardens, children's parks, swimming pools, sports facilities, and other civic amenities. We will release enough funds for all of it,” he said. In Bidar, each taluk headquarters will get an average of Rs. 5 crore.

    GULBARGA: The district administration has initiated steps to take over the marked portions of shops and commercial establishments along the stretch between Jagat Circle and Humnabad base here for the much-delayed widening of the road.

    Official sources told The Hindu on Saturday that notice had been issued to the owners of the structures and adequate time given to vacate. The buildings marked for demolition are located along a stretch that passes through the congested Bande Bazaar and Kirana Bazaar and connects the Humnabad base in Nehru Gunj locality. Of the 191 buildings marked, owners of 50 structures had obtained stay from courts. Hence, the authorities had started taking possession of the marked potions of the remaining 141 buildings, they said.

    Manoj Jain, Commissioner of the Gulbarga City Corporation, said that the exact date for starting the demolition work had not been fixed.

    Following the notice, owners of a majority of buildings in Bande Bazaar and Kirana Bazaar localities had voluntarily removed articles from their shops and even demolished the marked portions on Friday and Saturday. The two bazaars on the stretch were a major bottleneck for road-widening work. The Hyderabad Karnataka Chamber of Commerce and Industry and traders in the two bazaars had hitherto thwarted all the attempts of the district administration at taking up the demolition work.

    However, with the Karnataka High Court recently directing the Government to go ahead with the demolition after paying compensation to the owners of the buildings, the owners had stopped their protests.

    As per one estimate, the district administration would require about Rs. 38 crore to pay compensation to the owners.

  • GULBARGA: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Friday invited Infosys Technologies to set up a unit in the district and offered full support from the Government.

    Speaking after handing over the new houses constructed by the Infosys Foundation for the flood-hit families, Mr. Yeddyurappa turning to Chief Executive Officer, Infosys Technologies, Kris Gopalakrishnan and Director Mohandas Pai said the Government would provide land and infrastructure to the firm for setting up its unit in the backward region.

    Software giants such as Infosys could tremendously boost industrial development in the region, he noted.

    Housing project

    Referring to a suggestion by Mr. Pai to launch a massive housing project to provide shelter for all the homeless people in the State, Mr. Yeddyurappa said the Government was planning to do that to achieve its target of providing houses to all the homeless within four years.

    Mr. Pai suggested that the Government launch a comprehensive scholarship scheme for students to pursue higher education, Mr. Yeddyurappa said.

    At present, only 13 per cent of the population chose to pursue higher education, and the State was aiming to take it to 26 per cent.

    He lauded the Infosys Foundation for its offer to construct 10,000 toilets for individual houses in villages of the district that have cent per cent drinking water supply. He directed Deputy Commissioner R. Vishal and other officials to ensure that all villages had drinking water to enable the Infosys Foundation to implement its project. Cement factories that used raw material from Gulbarga district should be ready to share a portion of their profit for the development of the district, particularly in construction of roads, the Chief Minister said.

    Levelled:Structures being pulled down at the stretch from Jagat Circle to Humnabad base in Gulbarga on Monday.
    GULBARGA: The widening of the narrow road that connects Gulbarga city with the Humnabad-Jewargi National Highway began on Monday with the demolition of the portions of the buildings that had been acquired by the Government.

    The Gulbarga City Corporation authorities, armed with possession certificates issued by the Special Land Acquisition officer, moved in with heavy earth movers to demolish the marked portions of the buildings on the stretch between Jagat Circle and Humnabad base, passing through the narrow Bande Bazaar and Kirana Bazaar localities.

    This also brought an end to the long legal battle launched by traders and the Hyderabad Karnataka Chamber of Commerce and Industry against the district administration's move to take up the demolition drive.

    Initially, the district administration was reluctant to pay any compensation to building owners, but had to give in after the High Court ordered payment of compensation as per market value to those who would lose their property. City corporation officials told The Hindu that out of the 202 properties which will be demolished, 51 shopkeepers had obtained stay from courts. On Sunday, Special Land Acquisition officials obtained possession certificates of the remaining buildings and gave green signal to the city corporation to take up the demolition.

    However, when corporation officials moved in with heavy earth movers to demolish the marked portions of buildings in the Bande and Kirana Bazaars on Monday, there were some feeble protests by traders who sought time till April 30 to take up the demolition of the marked portion by themselves. However, officials said that enough time was given to them. “Ninety-nine per cent of the demolition work is completed”, said an official.

    As per the present plans, the Bande and Kirana Bazaar road would be widened to 60 feet. Later, the building owners will be asked to leave setback for the buildings to build platform and drains. The extent of the setback would be decided as per the rules and regulations and as per the City Development Plans, said a corporation official.

    * The district ranked last the previous year too
    * There are hundreds of single-teacher schools

    Bidar: Bidar has been placed 34th on the list of 34 educational districts ranked according to the SSLC results declared on Thursday. It was the last district last year too. Why does Bidar always end up being last? This is the question in the minds of the concerned citizens here.

    “The problem lies with lack of resources — physical and human,'' says teacher Vithaldas Pyage. “Bidar has less of everything — school buildings, equipment, libraries and teachers — compared with other districts. We suffer from long pending vacancies of teachers and education department officials.”

    High levels of poverty and child labour are the reasons for low educational achievement of the district, says Students Federation of India leader Vijay Kumar Sonare. “Many children from poor families skip school to work in the fields. So the performance is poor,” he said. According to him, the special programme of the International Labour Organisation aimed at reducing child labour in the district has not been very effective.

    MLC and editor of Bidar Ki Awaaz Khaji Arshed Ali said: “Even today there are hundreds of single-teacher schools in many villages. Disadvantaged children from such schools come to high schools. How can you prepare them for challenges like the board examination?” Zilla panchayat president Kushal Patil Gadagi said that teachers, especially those in government schools, are never held accountable. A senior education department officer said that last year, when the SSLC results were down, the zilla panchayat passed a resolution to stop the annual increments of the teachers of schools where no student had passed. However, the teachers associations protested against this. They said the zilla panchayat had no power to discipline.

    Deputy Director of Public Instruction Mohammad Bashir said: “We had hoped the clear reading and error-free writing campaign launched by the department would have improved the results. We are disappointed.”

  • MYSORE: The third biennial conference of the Indian Heritage Cities Network (IHCN) got underway here on Saturday.

    Inaugurating the conference, Urban Development Minister S. Suresh Kumar underlined the importance of conserving heritage for posterity and said the State Government had been taking initiatives for the sustenance of heritage cities.

    Mr. Sureshkumar said efforts were on to prepare heritage-friendly master plans for select cities like Mysore, Kittur, Bidar, Bijapur, Srirangapatna etc.

    The Minister said Mysore was endowed with splendid heritage structures and it was the duty of the local community to take it forward, conserve it for posterity and ensure its sustenance.

    The Minister noted that the shifting of the IHCN office to Mysore for the next three years augured well for heritage conservation of the city and would benefit the State.

    The four-day conference, being held on the Infosys campus, provides a platform for knowledge sharing as also technical assistance in addition to capacity building.

    It is being attended by national and international experts.

    The inauguration of conference was marked by marked by an exhibition titled ‘Indian Palaces and Mansions: the forgotten heritage of cities of Bhopal, Banaras, Gwalior, Srirangam and Karaikuddi'. Serge Santelli, of the School of Architecture, Paris conducted the exhibition.

    Earlier, the office of the IHCN was formally inaugurated at the old staff quarters of the University of Mysore.

    R. Rangaraju of the Department of Ancient History, University of Mysore, told The Hindu that the IHCN would restore the existing structure at a cost of Rs.40 lakh.

    More importantly, the presence of IHCN office in Mysore would give a fillip to conservation exercise by way of capacity building, new ideas etc, he added.

    The IHCN network will set up its main office in Mysore in June and recruit technical staff and experts from all sectors relevant to urban conservation and heritage-based urban development of Indian cities.

    This will include the position of director of the network to be based in Mysore.

  • GULBARGA: Passengers alighting at the Gulbarga Railway Station will no longer need to haggle with opportunistic autorickshaw drivers as, for the first time, prepaid autorickshaw service has been introduced here.

    The facility was inaugurated near the autorickshaw stand outside the railway station by Inspector-General of Police Gagandeep and Superintendent of Police Praveen Madhukar Pawar.

    As per the prepaid service, passengers are given receipts for auto fare, which is fixed depending on the distance.

    For example, a ride from the station to the central bus-stand will cost Rs. 16, to Nehru Gunj bus-stand Rs. 40, and to the University Guest House Rs. 64.

    After the first five minutes, passengers would have to pay a waiting charge of Rs. 5 every 15 minutes.

    While passengers can carry luggage up to 20 kg without paying extra, they would be charged Rs. 5 for every extra 20 kg after that, besides a service charge of Rs. 5. Officials said the move would end the harassment passengers faced at the station, particularly early in the morning, when autorickshaw drivers demanded unreasonable fares.

    No meter

    Ironically, Gulbarga, despite being the divisional headquarters, does not have metered autorickshaws and the fares are fixed by the drivers themselves.

    The police, too, have no say in this.

    The present rates were fixed by the Government in consultation with the Road Transport Authority, Autorickshaw Drivers' Union and the police.

    Fixed rates

    Senior officials of the Road Transport Office, and the police said the autorickshaw drivers would have to strictly adhere to the rates fixed by the Government and any violation would invite stringent action from the police.

    Also, the drivers will have to drop passengers on their doorsteps if it fell within a radius of 200 m from the point to which the prepaid ticket had been issued.

    In a brief interaction with presspersons, Mr. Gagandeep said that autorickshaws would continue to ply without meters for the time being, and that the issue would be taken up at the next RTA meeting.

  • * ‘New government hospital can provide the infrastructure'
    * ‘The new government hospital is designed to house a medical college'
    * Minister seeks report on primary health centres and taluk hospitals

    GULBARGA: Union Labour and Employment Minister M. Mallikarjun Kharge has said the State Government should establish a government medical college in Gulbarga and utilise the infrastructure available here with the new government hospital nearing completion.

    Chairing a review meeting of the District-Level Vigilance Committee and the committee in-charge of the implementation of the Centrally assisted programmes here on Wednesday, Mr. Kharge said, “I have discussed the need for establishing a medical college in Gulbarga in detail with Medical Education Minister S.A. Ramdas.”

    Sharanprakash Patil, MLA, said the new 1,000-bed government hospital was designed to house a medical college and is built in compliance with the norms of the Medical Council of India. The Government need not spend anything more to establish a medical college, he added.

    Rural healthcare

    Expressing his displeasure over the manner in which primary health centres (PHCs) and taluk hospitals were functioning, Mr. Kharge said it was unfortunate that despite the Union Government pumping in crores of rupees under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) for improving healthcare delivery system in rural areas, people continued to be deprived of quality healthcare.

    Report sought

    He directed Deputy Commissioner R. Vishal to constitute seven teams of officials to visit the taluks in the district and prepare a detailed report on the status of PHCs and taluk hospitals and the shortage of doctors.

    Mr. Kharge said the Centre provided plenty of funds under NRHM and these should be utilised judiciously. He also directed the Deputy Commissioner to provide potable and safe drinking water.

  • GULBARGA: The much-awaited information technology (IT) park that will provide employment opportunities for trained professionals in Gulbarga is in its final stages of completion. The first phase of the building, which will house offices, is coming up fast on the outskirts of Gulbarga on the ring road.

    The Karnataka State Electronics Development Corporation Ltd. (KEONICS), which was entrusted with the responsibility of establishing the IT park, decided to take up the work in three phases.

    Budget

    Official sources told The Hindu here on Saturday that KEONICS had prepared an estimate of Rs. 26 crore to establish the IT park over 1.5 lakh sq.m.

    In the first phase, it has proposed to set up infrastructure over 50,000 sq.m. at a cost of Rs. 10.57 crore.

    The first phase of works, which began in October last year, is expected to be completed in August.As per the information available, many leading IT companies had been approached by the State Government and KEONICS to encourage them to establish units in Gulbarga and open employment avenues for trained professionals.

    Gulbarga, which has at least four engineering colleges and two more in the offing, trains thousands of professionals every year, none of whom get a chance to work within the city. The establishment of the IT park would open avenues of employment to these professionals not only from Gulbarga but also from the neighbouring Bidar, Bijapur and Raichur districts.

  • Labour Minister B N Bache Gowda said the Government would establish multi-skilled development centres in the State to ensure supply of skilled workforce for industries.


    Talking to reporters here on Monday, after meeting the members of Labour Welfare Board, the minister said one such centre will be established at Bagalgunte near Peenya in Bangalore in 20 acres of land and another centre will be set up in Gulbarga.

    The Centre has promised to grant Rs 36 crore for establishing the centres, he said.
    Briefing about the board meeting, Bache Gowda said the board had decided to increase the scholarship amount from Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,500 for students annually. However, the monthly income fixed to avail the scholarship for children of workers has been raised from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000.

    From now on children of workers who secure more than 70 per cent in SSLC and PUC examinations will be awarded a scholarship of Rs 1,500, the minister said.

    It was also decided to enhance the financial assistance given to workers undergoing open heart surgery and to those suffering from cancer and kidney ailments, from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000, the minister added.

    The State Government will fix support price to contain the falling cocoon prices. Though, the Government had earlier released Rs 25 crore to enable purchase of cocoons, there is a need of an additional Rs 13 crore to bail out serculturists from the current crisis, Bache Gowda said.

  • Gulbarga set to be cement hub of the State

    Udayashankar Bhat, Gulbarga, May 29, DHNS:

    12 manufacturers propose to set shop in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region

    The district in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region is all set to shed its industrially-backward tag. As many as 12 large cement manufacturers are setting up shop in Gulbarga with an investment of Rs 15,000 crore generating 10,000 jobs.

    Abundant availability of limestone, an essential raw material for cement, and rail connectivity have played a vital role in transforming the district into a cement hub of Karnataka. Seven per cent of the total limestone deposit in the country is said to be in the Gulbarga district.

    Majority of the cement companies which signed memorandum of understanding to establish industries at the last year’s Global Investors’ Meet are now preparing to commence work on their plants. Cement majors - Vasavadatta, Rajashree, Zawar, Chetttinad, Lafarge, India Cements, Shree Cement, JK Cement etc - have obtained licence to build their factories. They have also submitted proposals for development of the necessary infrastructure.

    Rajashree and Zawar have planned to increase their production at their Mulkhed and Shahabad plants.

    Increase production

    According to sources in District Industries Centre (DIC), Zawar has proposed to increase the production to 60 lakh tonnes per annum (tpa) from the present five lakh tpa.

    It has also come forward to set up a 80 MW power generating unit for industrial purposes. The Rs 3,180-crore proposal includes technology upgrade, and generates 4,050 jobs.

    The district administration has allowed India Cements to acquire 1,263 acres to set up a 20 lakh tpa plant at a cost of Rs 850 crore. Shree Cements will set up a 30 tpa plant investing Rs 1,000 crore in Sedam taluk. The DIC has okayed the proposal of the Vasavadatta Cement to expand its Sedam plant and the Orient Cements unit in Chittapur.

    Proposal to expand

    Sources said the expansion proposals of the ACC and HMP too are before the government and more players - Sagar, Zuari, Birla, Soorya have evinced interest to establish their units in the district. Karnataka stands seventh in the country in terms of cement production and would catapult to the second position if the projects in the pipeline materialise.

  • Land allotted to establish multi-skill development centre (http://www.hindu.com/2011/06/06/stories/2011060650890300.htm)

    Special Correspondent
    20 acres handed over to the Department of Employment and Training
    Union and State governments to bear cost of the project equally

    The project will be supervised by a high-level committee

    GULBARGA: The State Government has allotted 20 acres in Gulbarga for the establishment of a multi-skill development centre proposed by the Union Labour and Employment Ministry.

    Official sources said here on Sunday that as per the directions of the State Government, 20 acres had been identified in Badepur Survey numbers 105, 104, and 93 here and formally handed over to State Labour Ministry's Department of Employment and Training.

    Dilly-dallying

    As a result of the initiative taken by the Union Minister for Labour and Employment M. Mallikarjun Kharge, two multi-skill development centres — one in Bangalore and another in Gulbarga — were sanctioned to Karnataka last year. After much dilly-dallying, the State Government finally decided to allot land for the two centres.

    The identified land in Gulbarga was in the possession of the Public Works Department and was formally transferred to the Department of Employment and Training with the promise of allotting 20 acres elsewhere in the district to make good the loss.

    During the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the ESIC Super-speciality Hospital and the Medical Education Complex in Gulbarga in 2010, Mr. Kharge announced that the Union Government was ready to sanction the multi-skill development centre in Gulbarga and Bangalore, if the State Government provided land for the purpose.

    The then Medical Education Minister, Ramachandra Gowda, who was present at the function on behalf of the State Government, announced on the spot that the required land would be sanctioned at both locations. However, for several reasons, including the failure to identify suitable land, the State Government could not immediately make the allotment.

    Supervision

    The Centre and the State Government will split the cost of the project equally, and the project will be supervised by a high-level committee comprising representatives of the Union Labour and Employment Ministry and the State Department of Employment and Training, headed by the State Chief Secretary.

    The multi-skill development centre will help unemployed educated youth to upgrade their skills in different vocations and enhance employability. The Centre proposes to provide training to improve the skills of the unemployed youth from software and hardware to the mechanical and engineering sectors.

    Stern action:A temple that had encroached on a road at Shahabazaar locality in Gulbarga being demolished on Saturday.

    GULBARGA: In a major crackdown on illegal constructions, the Gulbarga City Corporation on Saturday razed at least 34 places of worship that were found to have encroached on public property.

    Early in the morning, a squad began the demolition of 27 temples and seven dargahs simultaneously at different locations in the city, under police protection. The action of the corporation authorities took everybody by surprise, with only a few protests from the people at some demolition sites.

    According to Commissioner of the Gulbarga City Corporation Manoj Jain, the authorities had identified 45 unauthorised places of worship that had come up on roads. Some of them were on the middle of the road, obstructing traffic.

    “These illegal structures were major impediments in the efforts of the city corporation to widen the roads,” Mr. Jain told The Hindu.

    Deputy Superintendent of Police C.K. Baba who supervised the operation said no untoward incident had been reported during the demolition drive.

    The trustees of eight places of worship had earlier obtained a stay against the corporation's action.

    Held up

    The residents of Gazipur held up the demolition of a temple in the area, demanding to see the directions issued by court in this regard.

    For over four hours, people sat inside the temple complex and prevented the earthmovers from coming near the structure. They alleged that the authorities had not issued a notice to them about the structure being removed.

    Shivasharanappa, a retired government employee, said the temple had been at the spot for nearly seven decades and there was no reason to remove it now.

    Corporation officials showed them copies of the court order on the removal of the illegal structures on public roads and persuaded them to vacate the premises.

    Mr. Jain said the demolition of illegal structures inside parks would be taken up soon.

    GULBARGA: The State Government has cleared a proposal to lease out prime land measuring 2.38 acres in the heart of the city for the construction of an intra-city bus-stand and a shopping mall on a public-private-participation (PPP) model.

  • Rahi venture begins Gulbarga airport project

    Bangalore, Aug 10 (IANS) Regional Airport-Holdings International Ltd (Rahi), a joint venture (JV) between Comet Infra-Developments Pvt. Ltd (CIDL) and IL&FS Transportation Networks Ltd (ITNL), commenced project work on building a regional airport at Gulbarga in north Karnataka, about 600 km from here, a top company official said Wednesday.

    ‘After achieving financial closure in June with our equity partners and banks, we have started the project work to build the regional airport on the outskirts of Gulbarga for commencing operations by July 1, 2012,’ Rahi founder-chairman Umesh Kumar Baveja told reporters here.

    The JV also plans to launch a feeder airline service with four-five short-haul aircraft and offer the airstrip with 1,900 metres runway, airport terminal and associated services to state-run and private airlines to make optimal utilisation of the upcoming aviation infrastructure.

    The Rs.210-crore greenfield project is coming up in 371 acres of land, 15 km from Gulbarga, on build, operate and transfer (BOT) model under public-private partnership between the state government and a consortium comprising the JV partners, Nagarjuna Constructions Company (NCC) and Vienna International Airport (VIE Indien).

    Holding 22 percent (Rs.15.5 crore) in the equity capital of Rs.70.25 crore, Rahi raised the remaining Rs.54.75 crore from ITNL, NCC and VIE, who hold 26 percent each in the consortium.

    With a debt-equity ratio of 3:1, Rahi raised Rs.139.75 crore towards debt from three state-run banks, with Bank of Baroda as the lead bank.
    ‘In the remaining 322 acres of the total land, measuring 692 acres, we propose to build clusters for setting up industrial units in diverse verticals such as aerospace, electronics, horticulture, floriculture and retail for speedy transportation of their goods and services,’ Baveja said.
    Though the project was originally allotted to the consortium led by the Hyderabad-based Mytas Infra Ltd, founded by scam-tainted B. Ramalinga Raju of Satyam Computer Services Ltd, Rahi became the lead promoter after IL&FS acquired Mytas and formed the JV with 40 percent holding.
    ‘The 30-year concession period given by the state government for the project is extendable by another 30 years as part of the bid,’ Baveja pointed out.

    The consortium will pay the state government Rs.20,232 per annum towards lease for the entire land with 10 percent increase after every three years.
    The consortium also bagged the Rs.240-crore regional airport project near Shimoga, about 280 km from here in central Karnataka, geographically known as Malnad region.
    ‘Work on the Shimoga airport project will commence soon after achieve financial closure in September on the lines of the Gulbarga project under BOT and will be made operational by Sep 1, 2012,’ Baveja noted.
    The state government has allotted the consortium 662 acres of land about 9km from Shimoga city for the airport project in 342 acres and the industrial clusters around it in the remaining 320 acres with a 30-year concession period.

    Land concessions for cement units cleared

    The State Cabinet has cleared land concessions to eight cement factories, all to be located in and around Sedam and Chincholi in Gulbarga district, apart from the concessions for lands sought by six educational institutions and a sugar factory.

    The total extent of lands approved for these projects is over 4,000 acres. Most of them have received waiver from the provisions of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act and the Karnataka Land Reforms Act which impose a ban on the use of agricultural land for non-agricultural purposes.

    Among the cement units are Chettinad Cements, Shree Cements (Rajasthan), Dalmia cements and India Cements. All these projects were cleared during the Global Investors Meet last year and their land requirements were cleared by the State High Level Clearance Committee.

  • South India's dal bowl to get tur park

    BANGALORE: The state government will establish a ‘Pulses Park’ in Gulbarga - considered as the “dal bowl” of south India - to accommodate all tur dal trading activities of the Hyderabad- Karnataka region in a single cluster.

    Speaking to the media after a meeting with representatives of the Gulbarga Dal Mills Association here on Friday, Minister for Large and Medium-scale Industries Murugesh N Nirani informed that the government has agreed to allocate 100 acres of land at Kapanur village, on the outskirts of Gulbarga town, for the Pulses Park, which is estimated to generate an annual turnover of `500 crore.

    Land acquisition for the proposed Park will be entrusted with the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Corporation (KIADB); land acquired will be handed over to the Dal Mills Association, Gulbarga.

    The Association, added Nirani, will float a Special Purpose Vehicle to execute the project which will help industrialists and the farming community of the H-K region.

    Nirani informed that the cost estimate for the proposed park is yet to be worked out; he said that the Park will generate at least 2,000 direct and 5,000 indirect jobs.

    Around 227 dal mills are operating in Gulbarga.

    The state has waived off cess collection from tur dal farmers and authorities will be instructed to not to impose the same to farmers selling tur in the regulated market.

    It will release Rs 50 lakh as subsidy towards the construction of warehouses to store foodgrains.

It has been decided to approach either the Union Ministry of Food Processing or Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP) under the ministry of commerce for grant-in-aid to set up the project under a cluster-based model, he said.

    There are about 222 dal mills in and around Gulbarga and all of them have come forward to become members of the SPV and invest the required amount towards their equity, which is still to be worked out.

    The proposed park would also help dal millers across the Hyderabad-Karnataka region including neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, he said.

    We are working towards registering the SPV within the next month and once the SPV is formed we will appoint a consultant to prepare the detailed project report. All this will be done in the next one or two months and approach the state and Central governments for necessary clearances,” Biradar told Business Standard.

  • Farmers in Gulbarga district upset over prospect of losing fertile land

    Cement companies allowed to buy land directly from them
    The Government's decision to allow three cement companies to buy 3,540 acres of fertile land in the district directly from farmers has created unease among the growers here.

    The Cabinet permitted Dalmia Cements, Sri Cements and India Cements to acquire 1,660 acres, 1,200 acres and 680 acres respectively for setting up their units. All the three cement units have been planned in the limestone-rich regions of Sedam, Chitapur and Gulbarga taluks.

    The companies have started the process of identifying land and their agents have been visiting the villages in this connection.

    All three taluks have fertile land.

    The farmers are upset over the Government's decision to allow setting up of the units on fertile land instead of wasteland.

    They pointed out that the land that had been acquired for setting up industries had not been used so far.

    They said there had been very little progress on the 1,390 acres of fertile land acquired in Honnakiranagi and neighbouring villages in Gulbarga taluk for establishing a supercritical thermal power plant. The reason for this is that the Government has not got clearance from the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests and the Ministry of Coal is yet to provide coal linkage to the proposed plant. However, the Government had offered a Rs. 9 lakh per acre as compensation to farmers when it acquired the land.

    Earlier, the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) had proposed to establish an industrial corridor on the Gulbarga-Aland inter-State highway and identified 2,300 acres of agricultural land for it.

    The land acquisition process for it is likely to begin shortly. One of the effects of the Government's decision to allow companies to purchase land directly from farmers is the emergence of middlemen who have started purchasing land from farmers, with plans of selling it at higher rates to the cement companies and the KIADB.

  • Millers plan 'dal park' in Gulbarga for Rs 100 cr

    Gulbarga, south India’s dal bowl, will soon have a Dal Park set up under the public private partnership (PPP) mode at an estimated cost of Rs 100 crore to support tur dal growers and farmers. This first of its kind park, will be set up through a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to be floated between the dal mill owners, state and central government agencies.

    “The project has been jointly conceived by the Gulbarga Dal Mills Association and Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association.

    The state minister for large and medium industries Murugesh R Nirani has accepted our proposal in-principle and agreed to allocate 100 acres land to set up cluster-based Dal Park in south India,” S S Biradar, former president, Kassia said.

    He said, the government has agreed to allot land through the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) at Kapanur village, near Gulbarga.

    The state government has also agreed to create required infrastructure for the park. It has been decided to approach either the Union Ministry of Food Processing or Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP) under the ministry of commerce for grant-in-aid to set up the project under a cluster-based model, he said.

    There are about 222 dal mills in and around Gulbarga and all of them have come forward to become members of the SPV and invest the required amount towards their equity, which is still to be worked out.

    The proposed park would also help dal millers across the Hyderabad-Karnataka region including neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, he said.

    We are working towards registering the SPV within the next month and once the SPV is formed we will appoint a consultant to prepare the detailed project report. All this will be done in the next one or two months and approach the state and Central governments for necessary clearances,” Biradar told Business Standard.

    At the proposed Dal Park, the dal mills will get a piece of plot to set up their processing units and there will some common facilities like drying yard, testing lab, quality control lab, marketing assistance centre and x-ray machines to separate stones among others.

    Biradar said that the Park would generate at least 2,000 direct and 5,000 indirect jobs apart from helping both the mill owners and farmers. Apart from tur dal, the park will also process other pulses like green gram, urad, and black gram and Bengal gram among others.

    Karnataka accounts for 20 per cent of the national area under tur (red gram) cultivation. For the present kharif, the state agriculture department has targeted 860,000 hectares under tur crop. With an average production of about five quintals per hectare, the state can expect 4.3 million quintals of tur output for the present kharif.

    However, due to the lack of proper storage facilities and processing units, both the farmer and dal mills are forced to sell their produce early, thereby losing an opportunity to earn more every year, a dal miller from Gulbarga said.

  • South Indias dal bowl to get tur park

    The state government will establish a ‘Pulses Park’ in Gulbarga - considered as the “dal bowl” of south India - to accommodate all tur dal trading activities of the Hyderabad- Karnataka region in a single cluster. Speaking to the media after a meeting with representatives of the Gulbarga Dal Mills Association here on Friday, Minister for Large and Medium-scale Industries Murugesh N Nirani informed that the government has agreed to allocate 100 acres of land at Kapanur village, on the outskirts of Gulbarga town, for the Pulses Park, which is estimated to generate an annual turnover of `500 crore. Land acquisition for the proposed Park will be entrusted with the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Corporation (KIADB); land acquired will be handed over to the Dal Mills Association, Gulbarga.

    The Association, added Nirani, will float a Special Purpose Vehicle to execute the project which will help industrialists and the farming community of the H-K region.
    Nirani informed that the cost estimate for the proposed park is yet to be worked out; he said that the Park will generate at least 2,000 direct and 5,000 indirect jobs.
    Around 227 dal mills are operating in Gulbarga.

    The state has waived off cess collection from tur dal farmers and authorities will be instructed to not to impose the same to farmers selling tur in the regulated market.
    It will release Rs 50 lakh as subsidy towards the construction of warehouses to store foodgrains.

  • Cabinet approves Rajashree Cement expansion proposal

    Gives consent for six accelerated irrigation schemes worth Rs 52 cr

    Bangalore, Sept.8:

    The Karnataka Cabinet has cleared Rajashree Cement's request to acquire 24 acres of land for its expansion in Gulbarga district.
    The company, in its application to the Government, had requested additional land for expansion of its cement manufacturing unit from 4.20 mtpa to 8.45 mtpa.

    The Cabinet, while clearing the proposal, has told the company to buy the land at the market rate and that the Government would not interfere in land acquisition.

    The State Government has decided to extend by one year the one time settlement for the repayment of loan by waiving interest and compound interest on the loans availed by the small scale industry entrepreneurs from the State-owned Karnataka State Finance Corporation (KSFC). The scheme had expired in March this year.

    The said move is likely to benefit the Small Scale Industries (SSIs) entrepreneurs who had availed loan up to Rs 10 lakh from the KSFC. Many SSI accounts were under NPA due to claims, counter-claims and litigations. The State Government, on the advice of President of India, is to include Wakfs lands in the proposed ordinance to prevent land encroachment.

    The Cabinet gave its approval and is likely to be sent to Governor for his approval to include Wakfs lands and also impose stiff penalty and criminal procedures against land grabbers. The Cabinet also gave its consent for Rs 52 crore six accelerated irrigation schemes to be funded by the Central Government.

    A sum of Rs. 1 crore has been earmarked for shifting public utilities and another Rs. 50 lakh has been earmarked in the Rs. 75-crore sanction given by the State Government for shifting BSNL cables on roads where widening has been taken up. A sum of Rs. 23.41 crore has been earmarked for road and drainage works in different parts of the city.

  • NTPC to start Kudgi power project by year end
    New Delhi , April 25,, DH News Service

    The National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) is planning to start the construction work of its proposed mega thermal power project at Kudgi in Bijapur district by the end of this year.

    “The Karnataka Government has already initiated the process for acquisition of land. Once the land is handed over to us, we will start the construction work, which is expected to begin by end of December,” R S Sharma, Chairman and Managing Director of NTPC told Deccan Herald here.

    NTPC has handed over a cheque of Rs 26.22 crore to the Karnataka Government for land and requested the State Government to expedite the process of acquisition. The company is satisfied about the State government’s response in this regard, he said.

    Though the company earlier had planned to hold the ground breaking ceremony in March this year, later it decided to wait till it got the possession of land completely, he said adding that the company has already applied for environment and forest clearance with authorities concerned for the project.

    The NTPC is proposing to build 4000 MW ultra mega power project in Kudgi with an investment of Rs 20,000 crore. About 3,500 acres of land had been identified for the project while NTPC required 1,900 acre of land to begin with.

    The supercritical thermal power plant would have five units of 800 MW each and first phase comprising three generating units was expected to be commissioned by 2013-14.

    80 million units of power

    The proposed plant will have the capacity to generate 80 million units of power a day and 50 per cent of it would be supplied to Karnataka while the remaining would be shared among other States through the Central Grid.

    The Company claimed that project would adopt an advanced super critical technology that would reduce carbon dioxide emission besides burning less fuel with higher output.
    The MoU for the project had been signed between the Karnataka Government, NTPC and the State-held Power Company of Karnataka Ltd on January 12, 2009. The State has agreed to allocate 5.2 tmc ft of water per year to the project from Almatti dam.

  • HYDERABAD, JUNE 16:
    Power major NTPC Ltd., on Thursday said that it is set to add 1500 mw more during the current fiscal, even as it is gearing up to take up a mega project at Kudgi in Karnataka. The corporation now has an installed capacity of 4,450 mw in the South at Ramagundam, Simhadri, Kayamkulam in addition to 2000 mw it receives from the Talcher plant located in Orissa. With the fresh capacity addition, the installed capacity in is poised to go up to 6,000 mw by March next.

    The fresh capacity addition will come through second unit of 500 mw at Simhadari, which will make it a superthermal power plant with capacity of 2000 mw, and two units of 500 mw at Vallur in Tamil Nadu, which is being implemented through a joint venture with TN Electricity Board.

    Mr.Jayadeb Nanda, who has recently assumed office as Regional Executive Director of NTPC, (South), told Business Line that the Simhadri unit will be ready for commissioning by January 2012 and two units of 500 mw capacity each at Vallur in Tamil Nadu, where a 1500 mw thermal plant is coming up, will also be ready for synchronisation with the grid by March 2012.

    “We have signed up power purchase agreements with Southern States for the 4,000 mw thermal plant at Kudgi in Karnataka and are expecting the land allotment of 1900 acres by next quarter this year. In the phase one we will take up 3x800 mw power plant. This will be first thermal plant in South of NTPC under the supercritical technology. Work on other aspects, including suppliers is being finalised,” he said.

    “The Kudgi plant will be taken up on a fast track. Various aspects for implementation of the project are now being addressed. Fuel linkage for the project will also be through soon,” he explained.

    Mr. Nanda said “NTPC has also signed up with Governments of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka for a 4,000 mw mega power project near Nakapalli of Visakhapatnam district of the State. However, this will be taken up in the next plan period after receiving all necessary clearances.”

    “NTPC is keen to take up expansion in the south as we believe there is increasing demand in the region. As a part of the expansion projects, we are also looking at taking up another two units of 500 mw each at Ramagundam thermal project, which has consistently delivered very high plant load factors. Feasibility studies are now underway for expansion,” he said.

  • Korean power equipment supplier Doosan has won NTPC’s R10,000 crore-contract for the bulk supply of 800 mw supercritical boilers, beating competition from domestic players like L&T, Bhel, BGR Energy and Thermax.
    Price bids for the project were opened on Wednesday. Bhel has emerged as the second lowest bidder for the project, sources said. Price bids for the supply of turbines are due to open on Thursday.

    The Korean company did not participate in NTPC’s tendering for the bulk of supply of 660 mw boilers earlier. But later it changed its mind and decided to bid for NTPC’s contract for 800 mw equipment.

    It is setting up power equipment manufacturing facility in India with 100% foreign direct investment. NTPC plans to buy nine units of 800 mw supercritical units for its 12th Plan projects envisaged at places like Lara in Chhattisgarh, Darllipalli and Gajmara in Orissa and Kudgi in Karnataka.
    envisaged to have three units of 800 mw while the rest will have two units each. While equipment cost for these projects is estimated at R18,000 crore, expenditure of another R22,000 crore or so be will be required for undertaking implementation of civil construction, balance of plant (BoP) package works. It takes 48-52 months to commission one unit of 800 mw superciriticl unit. As per the terms of the tender document, Doosan and Bhel will share orders for NTPC’s projects. While Doosan will get orders for the supply of five boilers, the balance will go to Bhel.
    The outcome is a setback for L&T, which was knocked out of the NTPC’s tendering for the bulk supply of 660 mw supercritical units. While it was able to participate in the re-tendering held by NTPC for the supply of boilers, the bidding is stalled due to a legal case filed by disqualified bidder Ansaldo. Bhel also emerged as the second lowest bidder for the NTPC’s contract for the bulk supply of 660 mw turbines....

    Bangalore, Nov 3 (PTI)

    The Centre has approved a state proposal to set up a textiles park at Gulbarga, Karnataka Textiles Minister R Varthur Prakash said here today.

    The Centre would extend Rs 40 crore assistance for the park, he told reporters here, adding that the state has also recommended to the Union Government to start another one in Bellary.

    In addition, the government proposed to set up textile parks in Belgaum, Chikkaballapura, Tumkur, Chitradurga and Kolar, Prakash said.

    According to state government officials, Karnataka accounts for Rs 7,000 crore of the country's total textiles production value and 32 per cent of the total garments output.

    Karnataka was a partner state in the recent Technotex 2011, an international seminar on technical textiles held in Mumbai where Prakash invited industrialists to invest in the sector in the state and received good response. About Rs 500 crore investment flow is expected in the state, Prakash said.

    The Minister said those setting up industries in textile parks of the State, which has about 2,500 garment units, would be given a power subsidy of Rs one per unit.

    There are a total of 55,000 weaver families in the State, where there are an estimated 55,000 handlooms and 10.07 lakh powerlooms, and all of them would be covered by group insurance scheme, Prakash said.

    On Karnataka's 2008-2013 textile policy, he said investment of Rs 5,000 crore has flown into the state from 2008. The policy would be modified keeping in view the requirements of the sector and to give special thrust to technical textiles field and attract investment in that area.

    The government also is mulling extending power subsidy to spinning mills, he added.

  • ‘Textile park likely to be ready in two years'

    The Union Government has approved the setting up of a textile park here under the Scheme of Integrated Textile Parks (SITP), along with 20 other textile parks to be established in different parts of the country this year.

    Union Minister for Labour and Employment M. Mallikarjun Kharge told presspersons here on Wednesday that the Ministry of Textiles had cleared the proposals to set up 21 textile parks, including six in Maharashtra, four in Rajasthan, two each in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, and one each in Karnataka, West Bengal, Gujarat, Tripura, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

    He said the Union Government would provide Rs. 19.63 crore to the textile park proposed to be established in Gulbarga. Preliminary work on the construction of the textile park has begun on the Nandur-Kesaratigi Industrial Estate, on the 40 acres of land allocated by the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board on the outskirts of the city, pending approval from the Centre.

    Earlier, the State Government had approved the Gulbarga textile park under its Suvarna Vastra Neethi, and sanctioned Rs. 10 crore under the Special Development Programme. Besides, the State Government has committed itself to providing 9 per cent of the cost of the project. According to the original estimate, the total cost of the project is Rs. 52 crore, but this is likely to go up.

    Employment

    A spokesperson of the promoters of the textile park said around 70 units would come up at the proposed park, providing direct employment to more than 6,000 people and indirect employment to thousands of others. The textile park would promote the manufacture of all types of garments, packaging and accessories, like thread making, button manufacturing etc.

    The park will be of international standards and have common amenities like cloth washing, an effluent treatment plant, a sewage water treatment plant, fully-computerised quality control labs, a training and design centre, spacious and well-constructed roads, auditoriums, a crèche, canteens, recreational clubs, and ample green space, including gardens.

    Mr. Kharge said the average number of machines installed per unit would be around 100, and the annual revenue generated by the textile park would be more than Rs. 860 crore. The textile park is likely to be completed in two years.
