Why India may see several ‘little Singapore’ smart cities in 5 years

Why India may see several ‘little Singapore’ smart cities in 5 years

18 Aug 2014

The government has already initiated concrete steps to implement Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promise of building 100 ‘smart cities’ – eco-friendly cities which use innovative Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for efficient delivery of public services and infrastructure.

PM Modi’s pet idea of building 100 ‘smart cities’ would need massive financial resources and technological prowess. For both these prerequisites, India will have to look up to foreign countries. Many countries have expressed their interest towards this endeavour of the new Indian government.

The Modi government has allocated Rs 7,060 crore (a little over $1.1 billion) in its maiden union budget to kickstart the smart cities project.

Singapore has emerged as a major foreign player in the Indian scheme of things in this context.

The government plans to deliver three smart cities by 2019, all of which will be part of the larger project called Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). These smart cities, scheduled to be completed by 2019, are Dholera, Shendra-Bidkin and Global City.

Capital may think about these options

Sandeep Yadav

25 Feb 12

Metro tracks cannot be built in every nook and corner of the city owing to variety of reasons

Let us accept it. Metro tracks cannot be built in every nook and corner of the city owing to a variety of reasons – congested localities and Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains (Amendment and Validation) Act, 2010, just to names two.

As per the Act, new construction is prohibited within 100 metres of a protected monument and there are restrictions on construction within 100 to 300 metres. Such restrictions are bound to create a problem in the city strewn with hundreds of protected monuments as was evident in November 2011 when the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) issued a stop-work notice to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation on the proposed Central Secretariat-Kashmere Gate section at Janpath.

Monorail is one solution
So what are the options? Experts believe that rail-based transport systems like monorail and Light Rail Transit System in Delhi should be the available options. In fact, the Delhi Cabinet last month gave in-principle approval for the monorail connectivity between Shastri Park Metro Station and Trilokpuri, via Laxmi Nagar in east Delhi.

“Fast and pollution-free elevated intercity new mode of transport Mono Rail has also been recommended as a mass transit in Master Plan Delhi (MPD) 2021. Besides having less noise as compared to other systems, it will also be aesthetically attractive,” Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had announced. Monorail will be a realty in Delhi by 2017, she added.

Proposed route
According to a government official, it has been decided that the route will start from Shastri Park Metro Station passing through Yamuna Pushta Road, Rajaram Kohli Marg, Geeta Colony, Patparganj Road, Nirman Vihar Metro Station at Vikas Marg, Ganesh Nagar, New Patparganj Road, Sanjay Lake to terminate parallel with proposed Trilokpuri Metro Station.

Airport Express halts, phase III takes off

Dec 31, 2012, 01.54 AM IST

For Delhiites, the year 2012 brought the possibility of a wider public transport network closer to reality with phase III of Delhi Metro getting off the ground. The third phase, which will cover an additional 108km of Delhi, will introduce two new corridors – Mukundpur to Shiv Vihar and Janakpuri (West) to Botanical Garden – besides extending the Central Secretariat line to Kashmere Gate.

The year saw the closure of Delhi's celebrated Airport Metro Express. Launched in February 2011, the line closed amid safety concerns due to construction failures. The high-speed line, which connected the airport to the heart of the city, was discontinued after structural defects were found in the bearings, forcing trains to run at a low speed.

The project, which – being the first PPP project – had been under intense scrutiny, was mired in controversy with DMRC and concessionaire Reliance Infrastructure blaming each other. On July 8, the line was shut for repairs.

Mid-way through the repair, the concessionaire threatened to pull out, with the matter going to arbitration. The line, awaiting clearance from the commissioner of Metro railway safety, looks unlikely to resume operations soon.

Commuters still had reason to cheer after Delhi Metro announced augmentation of its last-mile connectivity with addition of almost 600 feeder buses into its network. However, the project has been delayed with DMRC yet to decide a schedule for the launch. The service, which may add to the Metro's ridership, has been shuttling between the vendor and DMRC. While Delhi Metro claims the vendor has been chosen, the vendor says vehicles are not available as per specifications.

Real Estate 2012: Predictions & Outlook

ET: Why the property prices never fell in cities

Hot Indian property destinations for NRIs in 2012

Deepa Venkatraghvan Dec 23, 2011, 08.20PM IST

The Non Resident Indian (NRI) might as well remember 2011 as the year of the 'lazy investor'. For NRIs have gained 18% since August 2011, simply by remitting money to India; no effort at all. But as we approach 2012, NRIs must take stock of how best to use their remittances. The traditional favorite has always been real estate. But in this volatile market, how great an investment is it? Is this a good time to buy property in India? What kind of property is a good bet? Let's try to find answers.

Mumbai vs Delhi: Which is better city?

Planned cities: Why Delhi is hotter property than Mumbai

by Sunainaa Chadha Jul 2, 2012

Despite the global economic slowdown, strong demand from the IT space as against financial services has helped NCR (National Capital Region) overtake Mumbai as the largest commercial market in India with nearly 85 million (8.5 crore) square feet of office space under operation, of which Gurgaon and Noida have contributed nearly 89 percent  of the upcoming office supply, a latest report by property research firm Knight Frank pointed out.

So what is it that makes Delhi more attractive than Mumbai for corporates?

Improved infrastructure, open spaces, good transport connection, low-cost housing , a metropolitan lifestyle in areas around offices and cheaper land.

Good infra and connectivity key to rise in office absorption in Delhi

Delhi commercial realty is completely IT-driven, which are not only expanding but also consolidating operations  by renting large spaces in areas like Gurgaon and New Delhi,  Santosh Kumar, CEO Operations at realty firm Jones Land LaSalle India told Firstpost. Gurgaon’s biggest advantage is its proximity to the airport, smooth connectivity to New Delhi and land costing between Rs 65-100 a square foot, which is what IT companies can afford, he explained.

Delhi commercial realty is completely IT-driven, which are not only expanding but also consolidating operations by renting large spaces in areas like Gurgaon and New Delhi

Moreover, apart from Gurgaon, companies are seen shifting office space to Noida too. This is because rentals are nearly 50 percent lower in Greater Noida compared to Gurgaon. This has been the biggest pull factor for companies looking to set up big campuses here. “Good connectivity, planned infrastructure and ample affordable housing options for employees are some of the key contributing factors to the growing commercial developments in Greater Noida. The proposed metro will further boost the real estate development in this region,” said Samanthak Das, national research head at Knight Frank in its latest report.

Cheaper land, easier payment options for builders in Noida

Secondly, land in Noida is government-controlled which is then auctioned off for construction. This makes it easier for developers too as they can pay for the auctioned land in installments, said Kumar.

While Capgemini, Ingersoll Rand took up place in IT SEZ buildings in Gurgaon, Google signed up a deal in a non IT stand alone building in Gurgaon. Hewitt and United Health Group preferred Noida over other micro-markets.

Mumbai, on the other hand is an expanding city with diminishing space.  As an Outlook report pointed out “MMRDA built the Bandra Kurla Complex but did not factor in transport connections. Planning when it happened, was piecemeal, sectoral and driven by vested interests.”

Gurgaon or Noida: Best Satellite Town of Delhi-NCR

F1 powers Noida as Gurgaon hit with perils of rapid, unplanned growth

Arati R Jerath and Prabhakar Sinha, TNN Nov 16, 2011, 12.06pm IST

The poor cousin from Mayaland never looked this close to eclipsing the Millennium City, which is now an urban sprawl with a creaking infrastructure. Rapid unplanned growth has been Gurgaon's bane, while Noida rides the twin advantages of better planning and competent trunk infrastructure.

The unveiling of the state of-the-art Formula One racing track in Greater Noida and the world-class Yamuna Expressway leading up to it have sent a frisson of concern coursing through Gurgaon on Delhi's southern border.

Suddenly, there's a buzz about the poor cousin from the east side. Almost overnight, the badlands of Mayawati Pradesh have transformed into a Shanghai miracle with a scale and quality of construction not seen before in India. And it's threatening to put swanky Gurgaon in the shade.

India’s Largest Commercial Center- Wave City Center Noida

Important Info: This website does not wish to promote this or any other projects. Recently a lot of complaints have been raised againt Wave Infra group related to their project Wave City NH-24. The key issues against the promotor company has been namely, 1)  Non-allotment of plots to majority of orig applicants (year 2005) even after 7 years wait, 2) Unethical practices by changing the orig priority list by asking more money, 3) Slow pace of work since 2005, no road connectivity from NH-24 to site or completion of internal sector roads, no timebound site deveopment since 2005, 4) Non-transparency in the allotment of plots as premium location plots sold at high prices bypassing the orig applicants.

In this background, we request everyone to do due diligence while dealing with the company.

29 Sep 2011

It was last year that at ncrhomes.com we noted that “Chadha group which is till date known for building wave cinema and centre stage mall in Noida is all geared up to be counted amongst the biggies of NCR like DLF, Unitech and JP. Watch this space.” Here is the link of that post.

Though it took another year for Wave Infra to start creating big waves into Indian real estate, but we have had this inkling for some time. While some of the biggies in Indian real estate are finding it difficult to carry their own weight, Wave Infra is emerging as a vibrant and dynamic group which seem to have all the firepower to be counted as the best in NCR. The cherry on the cake for the group seem to be their ever dependable customer service.Time would tell if Wave Infra could really DELIVER this dream successfully. Watch out for this space.

NCR-Delhi to stop new plots scheme

बंगला हुआ पुराना, हाईराइज का जमाना

किरणपाल राणा नवयुग मार्केट
एनसीआर में कोठी – बंगले की चाहत रखने वालों के लिए बुरी खबर है। एनसीआर प्लानिंग बोर्ड एक ऐसी पॉलिसी पर काम कर रहा है , जिसके तहत मकान बनाने के लिए प्लॉट नहीं मिल सकेंगे। लोगों को ग्रुप हाउसिंग में फ्लैट लेकर ही रहना होगा। बोर्ड की यूपी सेल के चीफ कोऑर्डिनेटर एस . के . जमान के अनुसार , घरों की बढ़ती डिमांड और घटती जमीन के मद्देनजर ऐसा किया जा रहा है। बताते चलें कि केंद्रीय शहरी विकास मंत्री कमलनाथ ने भी हाल ही में दिल्ली में हाईराइज बिल्डिंगों की वकालत की थी।

यह है समस्या : एनसीआर प्लानिंग बोर्ड की सर्वे रिपोर्ट के के मुताबिक , गाजियाबाद में हर साल औसतन 1.97 लाख लोग नए मकानों की डिमांड करते हैं। जीडीए , आवास – विकास परिषद और यूपीएसआईडीसी इस जरूरत को पूरा करने के लिए काम करती हैं। हालांकि तीनों विभाग डिमांड पूरी नहीं कर पाते हैं। 2005 में प्रदेश सरकार ने पॉलिसी बदलकर हाउसिंग डिवेलपमेंट में प्राइवेट सेक्टर को भी मौका दिया। इसके बाद नई समस्या खड़ी हो गई। मकान बनाने के लिए बढ़ती जमीन की मांग के एवज में खेती की जमीन कम हो रही है। पिछले 5 साल में खेती की करीब 16 हजार एकड़ जमीन रेजिडेंशल यूज के लिए किसानों से ली गई। अब खेतों को बचाने के लिए बोर्ड नई पॉलिसी तैयार करने में जुटा है।

Narela: Can it remove ghost town tag?

From city for people to ghost town

NEW DELHI

It has all the trappings of a perfectly planned residential area, worthy of making any house-hunter drool-wide roads, neatly built and affordable flats, abundant water and power, huge parks, markets, banquet halls et al. Most importantly, it offers the biggest catch of them all–a Delhi pin code.

And despite this, the 8,000-odd flats in Narela, built by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), have a handful of residents scattered across its different pockets. In some pockets, the only form of life is a lone property dealer, sitting in his decked-up office, waiting forever for that elusive customer.

Dipak Kumar Dash TNN

12 May 2012

New Delhi: Traffic woes on the Delhi-Jaipur highway could end sooner than expected. The Union highways ministry and Planning Commission are fast-tracking a proposal to construct a new 261km expressway linking the two cities that will take the load off the existing road.
    Though road transport and highways minister C P Joshi had last month announced a plan to build two new highspeed links from the capital to Jaipur and Chandigarh, the Pink City stretch has been prioritized. This new alignment road will be 4 to 6-laned and is estimated to cost Rs 10,000 crore.
    The tender document says the road must connect with the Manesar-Bawal and Kushkhera-Bhiwadi-Nimrana nodes on the Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor, and other highway networks.
