    Maha govt unlocks agri land for industry, edu institutes
    [​IMG]
    FSI Hiked By 9 Times, But Capped At 1

    The state government has amended its land laws to unlock agricultural land for industry as well as public educational and medical institutes. The decision is aimed at promoting the ease of doing business under the `Make in Maharashtra' policy .

    Under the changed rules, industrial units will be allowed to exploit up to nine times the existing building rights on agricultural land. Medical and educational institutes run by the state or public charitable trusts will be able to build up to four times the existing building rights on these lands.

    However, the building rig hts have been capped at a maximum of 1 FSI which will essentially allow a ground plus onestorey structure, officials said.The additional building rights will be made available on the payment of a premium of 30% of the land rate. Officials said the changed rules will boost industri al growth on the outskirts of cities.

    This will help promote the dispersal and expansion of industry . It will be especially beneficial for smalland mediumscale industries since they can be set up at convenient locations instead of MIDC zones,“ said urban development secretary Nitin Kareer. “Building rights have not been increased to a great extent for industry . Most units in such locations tend to be industrial sheds.“

    MUMBAI: The Maharashtra government on Tuesday unveiled its new information technology (IT) policy that aims to attract an investment worth Rs. 50,000 crore and generate employment for 10 lakh people in the state.

    The policy, called the new IT and Enabled Services policy, wants to give cities such as Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad a run for their money "Three cities such as Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru are leading in attracting IT-enabled services, and we have to compete with them, so we are taking these measures," said Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

    The state wants to exempt information technology and information technology-enabled service units from paying stamp and electricity duty, besides providing power to these units at industrial rates, not commercial.

    The other incentives include subsidy on electricity tariffs, property tax at residential rates, exemption from octroi, entry tax, Local Body Tax, concession on Works Contract Tax and VAT.

    In addition, an additional FSI of up to 200 per cent by charging a premium has been proposed in the new IT policy.


    He added that besides IT services, the state will offer an impetus to the animation industry as well by dropping the entertainment tax for companies involved in producing animation, provided they fulfill certain conditions.

    One of them being that at least 50 per cent of the animation should be done out of Maharashtra and the entertainment duty should be waived off for a maximum of Rs . 2.5 crore for each project.

    Fadnavis said that the land cost in Mumbai was too prohibitive for IT companies to set up units and hence the state is focusing on giving more FSI and other incentives to companies that set up units in Navi Mumbai, Pune and Thane.

    Aware that in the past, IT companies had violated the IT policy by leasing out properties to malls and multiplex es, Fadnavis said that the new policy has incorporated a provision where a per day fine of .3 per cent of the Ready Reck oner Rate would be imposed on the company if it flouts such provisions.

    "This way, we will be able to recover the entire cost of the land that we will give to these companies within a year," the CM said.

    Industries secretary Apurva Chandra said that Maharashtra would reimburse property tax to those IT companies which set up units in rural areas. He added that in order to encourage IT companies to set up base in rural areas, they have proposed giving higher FSI to IT companies setting up business process outsourcing units in A,B and C category of municipal councils.

    Rent-a-cycle scheme in Chennai gets a leg-up


    CHENNAI 16th June 2015 : In a city where traffic chaos is reaching unheard of levels, the corporation plan for a cycle-sharing project, as an alternative means of transport, is gathering steam. The civic body, after the June 27 R K Nagar byelection, will appoint a consultant in July to study the feasibility for the project.

    In the first phase, 3,000-3,500 cycles are proposed to be made available at 150-170 locations. Every docking station will have 10-15 cycles for rent linking various public transport systems. It will initially cover Thousand Lights, Egmore, Mylapore, and Royapettah with the stations located close to educational institutes and government offices.

    Through a project preparation fund established by the state government, the Tamil Nadu Infrastructure Development Fund (TNIDF) will hire experts and consultants to conduct the study that is likely to cost Rs 25 lakh. "They will scout for locations, suggest a method for operation, and also give us a financial model," a corporation official said.

    A resolution approving the project had been passed last year and the corporation has been conducting an online survey for public feedback for more than a year. It is yet to publish the results.

    Officials, however, remain cautious. "Safety is a big concern," said a senior official. "Before it is rolled out, we need to get carriageways ready with exclusive cycle tracks. Various departments will have to work together on this," he said.

    Several Chennaiites are excited about the move, understandable in a metropolis where travelling to and from work is an ordeal. Any proposal that offers even a remote solution to the daily unendurable agony is welcome with relish.

    R A Puram resident Reshmi Manian felt it would be a pleasant experience under good weather conditions. "It's a mode of exercise and a good way of controlling pollution," said the cycling enthusiast. She added that government officials could begin cycling once it was launched to motivate the public.

    Others dismissed it as another of the civic body's too-ambitious plans. "A cycle-sharing system works on the basis of trust. But with the lawlessness prevailing, I doubt if it will work," said Vignesh Ram, a post graduate student. "They may have to spend more money on tracking the cycles which may even get stolen and their parts sold to scrap dealers," he cautioned.

    The civic body has received bids and shortlisted three companies for the pilot project.

    Tendering will be done under the build, operate and transfer (BOT) model, where a private firm will receive a concession to operate the project for a stipulated period. The primary revenue for the private operator will be from advertising which it will share with the civic body. "The companies are working out a budget estimate and we will finalise the firm that is most viable," a senior corporation official said.

    The selected firm may have to spend Rs 70,000 to Rs 1 lakh as capital cost per bicycle — the price of bicycle, construction cost for docking stations, technology and manpower

    GE Aviation, Mahindra to collaborate on aero structure mfg
    Paris, Jun 17 (PTI) Mahindra group has expanded its partnership with GE Aviation by signing an agreement to make aerostructures at the Indian group's new aerospace facility in Bangalore.

    The existing initial MoU enabled both companies to work together on potential opportunities in manufacture of aerostructures. This new pact, signed here at Paris International Air Show, will see them collaborate to produce small, metallic complex structural sheet details and assemblies within Mahindra?s Bangalore plant.

    Stefanie Darlington, Executive Sourcing Leader for GE Aviation?s Composites Value Stream said, "The establishment of this Agreement marks a key step in the development of a long term relationship to support existing and potential new opportunities by adding Mahindra to our international supply chain with first hardware due in 2015."

    S P Shukla, Group President & CEO, Mahindra Aerospace and Defence Sector and Member, Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said, "This agreement takes GE and us to the next stage in our efforts to create value for aerospace OEMs and Tier 1 worldwide.

    "We are confident that this relationship will flourish and grow significantly in the years to follow."

    "Manufacture of components, assemblies and aerostructures is an integral part of our vision. While this agreement makes us part of GE's supply chain, we are also working to collaboratively leverage our respective capabilities on assembly work packages for A&D majors," said Arvind Mehra, Executive Director and CEO, Mahindra Aerospace.

    Created in 2009, Mahindra Aerospace extended the Mahindra Group's automotive design and manufacturing expertise to the growing aerospace industry.

    Through its components sector, Mahindra Aerospace acquired several companies with design and manufacturing experience ? strengthening its capabilities in lower-cost production.

    GE Aviation is a leading provider of jet and turboprop engines, components, aerostructures, nacelles and integrated systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation aircraft.

    Delhi dreams big, to stand tall with DDA’s 120-floor high-rise
    Delhi is all set to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with its glitzier neighbours – Gurgaon and Noida. The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is planning a skyscraper in Delhi, which might go up to 120 floors and become the tallest building in not only Delhi NCR but entire north India

    Delhi's first smart city will be a reality three years from now.

    With the iconic 100-storey tower being the key attraction, the East Delhi Hub at Karkardooma, the Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA) flagship project, will also comprise residential units, green cover and recreational facilities.

    The construction will be undertaken by the National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) at a cost of Rs 4,500 crore.

    “We have set a deadline of three years for this project. However, this is subject to change,” said Anoop Mittal, managing director, NBCC, while unveiling the model of the project on Wednesday.

    The hub will come up on transit-oriented development (ToD) norms. The NBCC will maintain the city for 30 years after its completion.

    “The project will be completed in phases and the first phase will be completed within 36 months,” the MoU said.

    The iconic tower will be more than 300 metre high.

    “The tower shall have restaurants, shopping facilities,offices, hotel and service apartments. At the top of the iconic tower, there will be several rooftop revolving discotheques and cafes, as well as a helipad for emergency and medical services,” DDA officials said.


    The smart city will have connectivity with two Metro stations, Anand Vihar and Karkardooma, a railway terminal and ISBT at Anand Vihar. The hub is expected to create approximately 8,000 jobs.

    “All green areas and parks shall have natural storm water management systems integrated within them. All rain water falling on the site will be recycled to replenish the ground water table,” said DDA’s vice-chairman Balvinder Kumar.
