Hong Kong company to set up Info Park

K. Venkiteswaran
`Terms are attractive to government'



Company holds discussions with Chief Minister
26 per cent equity participation offered to the State Government


KOCHI: Infiniti Consulting Corporation Limited, a Hong Kong-based company, has evinced interest in setting up an Info Park in Kochi. Discussions were held with the Chief Minister at Thiruvananthapuram last week. The terms and conditions offered by the company were said to be attractive to the State Government. The Hong Kong-based company envisages the project for IT and ITES development and has stated that seventy per cent of the 100-acre land required would be utilised for IT infrastructure development. "Since IT is a human resource centric industry, we also propose to develop allied facilities such as residential blocks, hotels, huge water treatment plants, power distribution systems etc, in the proposed park," said the company in a communication to the Government.

The company has offered 26 per cent equity participation to the Kerala Government in the joint venture vehicle. The company has also offered Rs.85 lakh per acre for the land at Kochi. The terms, the company claimed, were better than what was offered by the Dubai Internet City, especially in the spheres of Government equity, land utilisation for IT and fast track development plan.

Infiniti Consulting Corporation is a JB group company and is in the real estate and investment consultancy sector.

JB group came into being in 1965 and its activities include diamond cutting, polishing, distribution and marketing, jewellery manufacturing, investment in property and mining. It has ongoing projects in Goa where a 200-acre multi-component project, consisting of a 260-room five star deluxe resort, 200 high-end residential villas and apartments, is coming up.

It is a Rs.1200-crore project. The company is also developing commercial and residential projects in Mumbai, Surat, Hyderabad, Pune and Bangalore.

FAR issue ends here hopefully

A FAR-reaching directive to government
Thursday February 15 2007 10:58 IST

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court has directed the State Government to pass fresh orders within three months regarding the applicability of the provisions relating to Floor Area Ratio (FAR) contained in Kerala Municipal Building Rules of 1999 as against the provisions in the Structure Plan of 1991 for central Kochi.

While the statutory rules permitted a Floor Area Ratio of up to four, the structure plan notified by the government covering Corporation areas, Tripunithra and Kalamassery municipalities and nine nearby panchayats, prescribed a maximum FAR of 1.5, resulting in the rejection of building plans submitted to the Corporation and Tripunithura municipality by various builders.

The rejection of building plans was challenged by the builders concerned seeking a declaration that the Corporation and the municipality were bound by the 1999 rules with regard to FAR while considering their applications.

The government had issued an order on December 31, 2004, clarifying that as far as the Corporation of Cochin is concerned, Kerala Municipal Building Rules of 1999 would prevail over the Structure Plan of 1991 in the matter of Floor Area Ratio.

But, subsequently, by another order dated August 28, 2006, allegedly on the basis of a direction contained in a judgment by the High Court, the government cancelled its order on December 31, 2004.

The court also struck down the government order dated August 28, 2006, cancelling its earlier order dated December 31, 2004. The court also struck down the instructions issued by the Regional Town Planner to Tripunithura municipality regarding Floor Area Ratio applicable to areas under the municipality.


The court directed that before passing fresh orders as directed by the court, the government should take into account the observations contained in this judgment and hear the Corporation, the municipality, the representatives of various builders, and anybody else who in the opinion of the government would be concerned in the matter.


The court also directed the Corporation and Tripunithura municipality to consider the plans submitted for approval till August 28, 2006, the date of the quashed government order, and decide them in accordance with FAR permitted under the 1999 Building Rules.

Applications submitted subsequently should be processed and order should be passed to the extent of permitting constructions within the FAR permitted under the Structure Plan of 1991.
The govt tried to play politics with Kochi's development and immediately got caned !!
I guess that Town planner is only a pawn in the game played by politicians.

Now that the court has intervened along with the powerful builder's lobby,i am sure that the FAr of 4 will be retained.

HC stays govt stays the govt order on reducing the FAR in Kochi.

"Kerala High Court today directed the government to pass fresh orders within three months on the request regarding the applicablity of the provisions relating to the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) in Kerala Municipality Building rules 1999 for Kochi city."

The old Floor Area Ratio prevails.

Cognizant begins operations in Kochi

Special Correspondent
`State has good engineering talent'





KOCHI: Cognizant has started operations in Kochi, which adds an eighth city to its footprint across the country.

It now has operations in four southern States — Tamil Nadu (Chennai and Coimbatore), Karnataka (Bangalore), Andhra Pradesh (Hyderabad) and Kerala (Kochi).

Cognizant has taken up approximately 74,000 sq.ft. of leased space in Kochi. This new development centre, said R. Chandrasekaran, president and managing director of the company, would have the capacity to accommodate approximately 800 professionals.

Phase 1 of the facility would be fitted out by end of April 2007, which would create a capacity for 400 professionals, and phase 2 by July 2007 for an additional capacity for 400 professionals.

In a release here on Thursday, the company said that Kerala had good engineering talent, the primary source for recruiting. It had about 82 engineering colleges that produced more than 23,000 qualified engineers each year. In addition, it has 186 science and arts colleges.

Cognizant had been a power recruiter from Kerala for the last eight years, having a premium slot across most premier engineering colleges.
