Hi SunCity-

I have a general question: Are all of India's major cities growing quickly, or some more than others? Where would you rank the major cities as far as grownth in population? What about growth in economic/wealth terms?

When thinking of major cities I'm wondering about:
Calcutta/Kolkata
Bombay/Mumbai
New Delhi
Madras/Chennai
Hyderabad
Bangalore
Gangetic Plain (Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi, etc)

Also, what is your perception of growth in Pak & Bangl?
Lahore
Islamabad
Karachi
Dakka
Chittagong

Thank you for your time and attention!

Are a lot of these new towers in Kolkata being built along the route to Boral?

Sorry for the delay.

WOW that's several questions...

I am no expert nor have I visted all cities in the recent past. So information is based on what I read on the net or at other forums.

There has been an economic boom in all major cities but it is not even across all of India nor is it even across any particular city.

We may have to wait till 2011 to get a correct picture. A problem that I have noticed is that none of the cenuses or projections mention the area of a city/metro area. So comparison is not often apples for apples. Plus many cities expand by adding outlying areas and show a big population surge which not may not be true. The core city of Kolkata or the old core city of Mumbai showed little growth between 1991-2001. The suburbs showed big growths.

It's not even.

From what I have read and heard, they are registering good economic growth/boom also. Dhaka seems to be booming when it comes to highrises.

Well many of them are along Eastern Bypass which stretches from Garia to Ultadanga. A lot of the projects are coming up in the new town being built in Rajarhat.

You know, Kolkata really needs to upgrade its airport. It serves all these international carriers, Yet, it has very few skyways to those planes.

The volume of air traffic and number of international airlines serving Kolkata is not much. The number of skyways is just 4 and annual passenger traffic was 3.44 million in 2004.

But it is probably going to rise with growth in air traffic.

There are plans to replace the old building (international terminal) with a new modern terminal.

Old Terminal (International)
http://img87.exs.cx/img87/7021/ccu3stimir3af.jpg

Here's a report from Times of India:

It's a symphony in steel and glass. Even at first glance, the structure is striking enough to keep anyone's attention rivetted. Towering 50 feet over the ground, the two-and-a-half level building is beautiful in its simplicity. Gigantic reinforced glass panels make for the walls. The roof comprises an intricately designed steel mesh that is supported by large spans. The effect is stunning; conjuring up a sense of expansiveness.
That is the futuristic terminal at Kolkata's Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport -- a far cry from the clumsy brick-andmortar structure that lacks in visual appeal or architectural purpose. Though still on the drawing board, the dream project is inching closer to reality. French consultant Airport de Paris has just submitted provisional drawings of the Rs 100 crore terminal to Airports Authority of India. The computer generated images are based on the shortlisted entries to a design competition that was organised by the French firm for the purpose.


As per plans the domestic terminal will also see the addition of four more skyways.

I'm going to Kolkata this winter. Sun City, or anyone, do you know when the metro extension to Gariahat will be completed?

Winter 2007 probably for Garia. Gariahat is different. There will be no metro to Gariahat. Gariahat is about 1 mile from Kalighat Metro station and is easily accessible.

Another highrise project

Oasis by the Fort Group

Three towers of 25 storeys each
