Smart City: Mangaluru to develop economic growth centres
Quote:
Owners with land holding of more than 25 acres can offer their properties for redevelopment projects and those with more than 100 acres can offer for Greenfield development projects.

He said the projects would be developed on a joint venture between the special purpose vehicle (SPV) that would be developing the Smart City, landowners and private developers. Attractive financial models would be developed leading to a win-win situation for the stakeholders such as landowners, private developers, SPV and the end users of the projects.

Some of the proposed economic growth centres under the Smart City project are ‘Knowledge, Wellness and Sports city’, ‘Finance and Tech city’, ‘Eco, Leisure and Entertainment city’, ‘Beach and Backwater Tourism Centre’ and ‘IT Park’.
What happened to 400 acres 'Greenfield Smart City' proposed by an American company at Maravoor?

The capacity of the terminal will be around 2-3 million tonnes, which will be scaled to five million tonnes.

It is estimated that MRPL will invest around $800m in the project, which is expected to be operational by 2018.

A clean and green port city, nurtured by a vibrant community of educated and industrious citizens with a pluralistic cultural heritage driven by innovation, knowledge and health care services, using eco-friendly technology to develop efficient infrastructure and accountable governance systems providing equal opportunity with affordable, safe and quality urban life.

MRPL gearing up to provide piped gas
Quote:
Piped gas supply is one of the criteria under the smart city project and MRPL is prepared to discharge its duty, said company managing director H. Kumar. In an informal interaction with presspersons here on Monday, Mr. Kumar said MRPL had commenced a detailed feasibility study (DFS) towards constructing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal on the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) premises.

The study is likely to be completed by August next year and if the project is found feasible, MRPL would initially go for a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU). The FSRU would be functional till a permanent LNG terminal, comprising storage and regasification unit, is constructed, Mr. Kumar said.

MRPL already has committed customers — Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilisers (MCF) and MRPL’s own aromatic plant. Besides these two, the piped gas supply project would also be another customer for the project, Mr. Kumar said.
Centre keen on grading fuel by refiners
Quote:
MANGALURU: Expansion plans of MRPL to touch 18 million metric tonnes (MMT) will coincide with a government of India directive to all refiners in India to market BS V and VI quality fuel. While the union government has mandated a 2020 deadline for refiners to do so, the union ministry of petroleum and natural gas is keen to achieve this a year ahead and this means that the company has to be ready with the product by December 2018, noted H Kumar, MD, MRPL.
Quote:
The company has approached the state government for 1,050 acres of land to facilitate the capacity upgradation. KIADB will undertake the land acquisition for the company, he said adding MRPL has urged the government to provide land contiguous to its existing facilities to aid this expansion process. Asked if MRPL will acquire land based on demands from residents of Jokatte, he said it will be done so only if such land will aid the company's proposed expansion plans.

Can about 400 acres of land in the vicinity of Kunjathbail be developed as an integrated township under the proposed smart city project?

This place has advantage of being nearer to airport. And it can be developed for Medical Tourism. Have they dropped the idea of greenfield smart city at Maravoor?

Canara Bank to launch loan product for start-ups

Too much is talked about IT Parks. Nothing has happened so far. Now I am expecting at least a 'Startup Village' similar to one in Kochin. We have some startup facilties in NITK (Science & Technology Entrepreneurship Park) and Manipal University in Udupi (Technology Business Incubator). And there is plan to set up Research Park in NITK and also Manipal University to open medical research wing soon. Can we envision Mangaluru as startup region? Kunjathbail Integrated Township can include Startup Village & Research Park along with educational institutes.

'Visa on arrival for foreign patients under govt consideration'

This is useful for Medical tourism. If we want to develop Mangalore as Aerotropolis then road network around airport should be strengthened and metro and highspeed rail connectivity to airport is also important. (Bangalore’s Development as an Aerotropolis). Mangalore can also have Marina near Kunathabail itself or places like Ullal can be considered.

Call to set up rural innovation centre

Selco has SELCO Labs in Ujire near Dharmasthala. But there is more to do. A startup dedicated to this is useful. Karnataka government has plan to set up a research center at Belapu. But I think this is for academic research. In addition we need facilities for product-oriented research. Mangalore has very few research institutes (CMFRI branch, Geological Survey of India, small private ones working mainly on medical field like Nova Meditech, Mangalore Biotech, and others like Goal Technologies. Research facilities are there in industries like BASF, MRPL, Sequent also. And then there are colleges and hospitals with their own research labs like SIEMENS Centre of Excellence | MITE, Sahyadri College of Engineering & Management::CENT, NITK-STEP.). Mangalore definitely deserve good research & start-up facilities looking at its educational profile. Good medical research & start-ups can contribute a lot for medical tourism.

Smart cities to move people not cars, through efficient public transport , says M.Venkaiah Naidu
Quote:
Inaugurating the ‘Urban Mobility India Conference’ here, Naidu expressed concern over lack of equity in the use of public spaces like roads in urban areas of the country, with car owning class using them more at the expense of common man.
This is true in Mangalore. Let us hope this issue is addressed in Mangalore Smart City Plan.

Draft Smart City Proposal for Mangalore

I went through other cities proposals and found SWOT analysis missing in Mangalore proposal. Some cities have captured nicely about BRTS and other public transportation systems in detail but missing in Mangaluru proposal. Wondering whether Mangaluru will include these things only in detailed proposal.
