Bantwala-Charmadi to be developed as fourlane road

I think all these road developments including Mani-Madikeri, Karkala road developments to improve conncectivity to hinterland are also a part of 1.2 lakh crores NH-75 Economic Corridor development. Let us wait to find out whether Mangalore-Karwar Sagarmala roads developments are also part of this economic corridor.

Surathkal-Ganeshapura stretch to be made 6-lane, says MLA
The MRPL road, between Surathkal and Ganeshapura, will be developed as six-lane concrete road at an estimated cost of Rs. 58 crore, according to B.A. Mohiuddin Bava, MLA, Mangaluru City North.

Speaking at a function organised to lay the foundation stone for upgrading the main road inside Baikampady Industrial Area as concrete road on Friday, the MLA said that the blueprint for widening about 4.5 km stretch of the road is being prepared.

He said that there was a need to upgrade this stretch owing to plying of heavy vehicles. The MLA said that the stretch between Malavoor bridge and Kenjar entry to Mangaluru International Airport on Mangaluru-Bajpe Road will be widened and concreted at an estimated Rs. 52 crore.

It involves construction of a parallel bridge across the Phalguni at Malavoor.

He said that the government would build a market complex in Surathkal at an estimated Rs. 50 crore.
The MLA said a breakwater would be constructed near Meenakaliya to prevent sea erosion at a cost of Rs. 8 crore.

The foundation stone laid in the industrial area on Friday was to widen and upgrade 3.39 km stretch of the main road inside the industrial area as concrete road at an estimated cost of Rs. 12 crore. As per the terms of contract its work should get over by July 4, 2018.

At a meeting called by Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP, to discuss highway issues, an official of Larsen and Toubro that has bagged the contract of the Rs. 821-crore project said the work could not be started in September owing to soil moisture content.
Road-widening survey to begin on October 9
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will begin a survey on widening the Mulki-Kinnigoli-Kateel-Bajpe-Polali-B.C. Road and Melkar-Mudipu-Konaje-Thokkottu stretches of the road on October 9, according to Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP.

The NHAI has proposed to widen them under the Bharat Mala Project connecting highway to highway.

The road will be upgraded and widened to 35 metres without a median, he told reporters after a meeting with NHAI officials here on Friday.
In addition, Mr. Kateel said the Public Works Department would upgrade and widen three roads using Union government funds. They are Gundia-Kukke Subrahmanya, Bantwal-Siddakkatte-Moodbidri, and Kalladkka-Vitla- Chervathur. These stretches will also be widened to 35 metres without a median.

All the stretches will be upgraded as tar roads, not concrete. The MP said bids have been invited to widen the Gundia-Kukke Subrahmanya and Kalladkka-Chervathur stretches.
Earlier, the MP took an official of Navyug Udupi Tollway Pvt. Ltd. to task for not completing the flyovers and Pumpwell and Thokkottu. The official cited rain as the reason for slow progress of work and said the flyovers would be ready by May.

Gundia-BC Road work to start by month-end
The widening and upgrading of the 65-km stretch of Mangaluru-Bengaluru National Highway between B.C. Road and Addahole (near Gundia), which has been delayed by more than month, will begin only by this month-end, according to a senior official.

At a meeting called by Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP, to discuss highway issues, an official of Larsen and Toubro that has bagged the contract of the Rs. 821-crore project said the work could not be started in September owing to soil moisture content.

Vadiraj B. Katti, project manager and joint general manager, L&T, which has bagged the engineering, procurement and construction order of the project, said the company could complete the 15-km stretch by May-end.

‘Issues not addressed’

Mr. Katti said issues on the 17-km stretch are yet to be addressed. The project involves construction of about 300 culverts. Forest Department clearance for taking up construction of some of the culverts is yet to be obtained.

The project involves the construction of dual carriageway (four lanes) with concrete pavements.
It’ll be a smooth ride on a 4-lane road between Nelamangala and Mangaluru
The entire stretch of National Highway (NH) 75 connecting the coastal commercial hub of Mangaluru with Nelamangala and further with Bengaluru will become a four-lane road — except for a 26-km stretch of Shirad Ghat.

Instead of the initial plan to have a two-lane bitumen road between Gulagalale (between Ballupet and Sakleshpur) and Maranahalli (Heggadde), the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has proposed to lay a four-lane concrete road on this stretch too. Thus, the 55-km stretch between Hassan and Maranahalli will become a four-lane concrete road.

Sources in the NHAI said that initially it was thought of having only a two-lane road because of the hilly terrain where the existing alignment passes through steep curves, ups, and downs. However, it was later decided to have the four-lane road considering the volume of traffic. Also, the proposed green bypass for Shiradi Ghat starts from Maranahalli and ends near Gundia, thus requiring four-lane connectivity at both the ends.

Contracts awarded

The contract for four-laning NH 75 between Hassan and Maranahalli has been awarded to Isolux Corson on engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) mode at an estimated cost of Rs.400 crore. The work, which has already started, is expected to be completed in about two years, sources said.

From Maranahalli, where the Shiradi Ghat begins, to Kempu Hole Guest House (13 km), the road has already been widened to 8.5 m width with concrete. The NH Division of Karnataka State Public Works Department (PWD) is awaiting nod from the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) to award contract for concreting the remaining 13-km stretch between Kempu Hole Guest House to Addahole (near Gundia) after selecting the lowest bidder, Ocean Constructions, which had quoted Rs.61.57 crore for the project.

Contract for four-laning NH 75 with concrete between Addahole and B.C. Road (66 km) at a cost of about Rs.821 crore under EPC mode has been awarded to L&T. Work on the stretch has already commenced after clearing about 7,000 trees and is expected to be completed in about two years. It also includes construction of 14.5 km of service roads, two each flyovers, and major bridges, 14 minor bridges, nine underpasses, and a toll plaza. The 25-km stretch between B.C. Road and Mangaluru is already a four-lane under NHAI’s Port Connectivity Project.
Survey begins on Mulki-BC Road four-laning work
Kateel said that STUP company is conducting the survey. Based on the survey, a detailed project report will be prepared. The possibility of constructing medians and circles will also be considered, he added.

The ministry has approved the proposals for the four-laning of the roads. They will be part of the ring road under the ‘Bharat Mala’ project.
The four-laning of a total of 91 km road under phase one has been handed over to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), he said.
Existing 20 meters Mulki-BC Road road will be widened to 45 meters

Report on widening roads expected in 8 months
The detailed project report (DPR) on upgrading and widening the Mulky-Kateel-Polali-B.C. Road and Melkar-Mudipu-Thokkottu Road stretches is expected to be ready within eight months, according to Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP. Speaking to reporters after launching a survey of the stretches at Mulky on Monday, he said STUP Consultants Pvt. Ltd. would prepare the report for the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), which will take up the roadwork.

State (Kerala) to bear 50% cost of rail line

If Kerala government is ready to bear 50% of cost of doubling existing line then only they can run trains from Kerala in this track to the parched city. But, my advice to Kerala government is to spend this money on developing eco system for business & industry and cretae job opportunities in Kerala itself.

A way to construct reservior so to avoid ship/boat movement issues to old port is to channelize water to reservior through a separate canal (of course canal will have a bridge over it for vehicle movements) with suitable arrangement that backwater will not flow into reservior during non-rainy season. But this will also create flooding issues though erosion may or may not come down. And saline water may enter fresh water reservoir through soil. Better, reliable engineers of NITK do independent feasibility analysis and supervising than living things to the luxurious IISc professor. I am sure final cost of water will be much much higher when all geological & flood hazards are addressed in the plan properly.

The fishermen with small boats can do fresh water fishing (if double barriers are constructed like this - cost may go up further) and as mentioned earlier anchoring facilities for boats can be constructed along sides of barriers.

Look at how DK MLAs are keeping quiet! All the MLAs & the Corporators who are not raising voice against this kind of stupid committe & Yettinahole are worth of defeat in the next election.

The parched city eyes on Netravati & sets fire to another conflict with the coast

No use of any conflict. This autocratic government, worst than british government, has already suppressed a peaceful compaign against Yettinahole brutally. Any way one of IISc professor has already warned sea level will raise due to climatic changes and whole coastal region will be submerged in sea icluding the planned reservior. Just abandon coast, move to the parched city and enjoy drinking 750MW delux water (actually you have to drink desalinated water as Netravati itself will not be there & no rain as no hills will be there) with wine and have fun with IISc professors.

We'll solicit opinion on Netravathi project: UT Khader

Why not the minister opposes the project directly? Why is he allowing it to reach the stage of asking people's opinion? He is talking as if opinion matter to this autocrat government. What he will lose if he stands with people of Dakshina Kannada?

Netravathi Reservior: Said something and reported something else

Summa: Earlier in Mangaluru meeting the IISc scientist had stated only 120 TMC water is available in Netravati (and requiste water is not available in Yettinahole) but now he has submitted a report stating 350 TMC of water is available in Netravati.

Problem is with our legal system. Anyone can submit any bogus report and escape consequences. Whether it is the same scientists who give bogus report on Yettinahole earlier? Now they have stating that their own Yettinahole report is false and still not punished for that.

Rs 40 crores vented dam for Netravati at Harekala

Build reservoir in Mangaluru to meet Bengaluru’s water needs: IISc experts

What type of experts? So far they have shown their expertise to produce bogus reports only.

Again they are talking about irrigation. Irrigation at what cost? We want Pashchima Vahini for irrigation. Implement Pashchima Vahini before even thinking of seabased reservior & forget discussion before Pashchima Vahini implementation.

Decision to take water to the parched city after discussion
Karnataka government considering harnessing floodwaters from Netravati

If this autocratic government has already decided to construct reservior then why discussion? The government want this type of seabased reservior not only in Mangalore but also in other coastal regions to supply water to other parts of Karnataka. Why not they construct pilot seabased reservior in some other part of the coast where population is less (so less risky and displacement cost is also less) and take water to say Davangere using Tungabhadra or Linganamakki or some other reservior for in between water storage during non-rainy season when reservior level goes down? This is the way to prove technical ability first. The government can create about 10 lakhs jobs for people of the parched city in Davangere itself and shift those people from the parched city to Davangere. In this way water demand in the parched city will be reduced. Even the government can build 'Media City', 'Finance City' or 'Knowledge City' in Davanagere itself if it has enough will power to do this. If the government concern is to develop whole Karnataka equitably then they should give more priority to taking water to non parched city regions first. This government does not have any concern for inclusive growth of Karnataka. The goal of real estate lobby of the parched city is to increase their land value. Disgusting! In the next election let us all vote for a party which promises equitable growth of Karnataka with equitable budgetary allocation for growth of one city each in North-East, North-West, Central and Coastal Karnataka.

State Govt. plans to harness floodwaters for drinking purpose

This politician is just trying to garner support from other cities for selfish goal of the parched city real estate lobby. If other cities to be included then why only Netravati reservior report is ready to take water to the parched city? How can you do everything in a single first phase? How can so many reserviors be constructed in a single phase? Won't there be any pilot project to prove technology? Just include North & Central Karnataka cities in first phase. As northern coast of Karnataka is less populated and hence less risky to prove technology & relocation cost will be less. But before pilot project itself implement Pashchima Vahini project fully. (Land acquisition is needed for canals, pipelines and pumping stations. Canals in turn are needed if you want to avoid construction around estuary as shown in figure above to allow ship/boat movements from already existing ports and also to avoid flooding caused by dam. Though the figure above shows short canal in reality it requires a long canal to take water from non-saline river part to reservoir probably from proposed Harekala dam itself. Note in the above figure due to wall on Ullal side the Tannirbhavi side of beach would face more sea erosion during rainy season).
Just wondering what the real estate mafia of the parched city (mafia which created the parched city by encroaching and polluting lakes; mafia which is sitting on huge land bank) and the ministers supporting them may think if the sea reservior pilot project is executed for North Karnataka cities? Would they think that businesses will start moving to these cities and they will lose their land values and opportunity exploit kannadigas with their exorbitant projects? Their goal seems to be finish Mangalore as it is emerging as a challenger and no challenger will emerge other parts of Karnataka as they will be the early birds to prey on industries and businesses.

The real estate mafia of the parched city is already trying to coax people of interior Karnataka against coastal Karnataka. If they really wanted to take decision after consulting with the coastal people they would not have done this.

By the way, I am not denying there is real estate mafia in the coast but this mafia is nothing in front of the parched city mafia. They know it and so they are now planning to shift to Padubidri away from Netravati. Some of them may even help in development of Netravati reservior to be in good terms with the parched city real estate mafia. Like any other land mafia this mafia also know how to get government lands.

Narendra Modi's Rs 5.57 lakh crore river-linking schemes set to take off as India battles floods

Coming Karnataka elections are bringing new colours. Water Politics! One party is going to promise interior Karnataka's people that we will bring water by constructing coastal reserviors and desalination plants. The other party will say we will do the same by linking rivers. As for coastal Karnataka people one party will say coastal reserviors and desalination plants are dangerous to the coast. The other party will say turning west flowing rivers is dangerous to the coast. One party will say we will just link rivers of North India to South India but not touch coastal rivers. Want to believe this promise? Whom should the coastal people vote for? My advice is to vote for a party which releases substantial amount of money needed for 'Pashchima Vahini' or 'Saubhagya Sanjivini', not nominal amount like the state government allocated but not released. Note that there were news earlier that the central government water policy of developing new agriculture fields is beneficial to coastal Karnataka. Let the parties vie to release fund now if they think winning coastal Karnataka is also important.

This could be the safe way, if the terrain allows, of getting clean & fresh water at the cost of acquiring more land and more expense without disturbing old port. As wall is curved sea erosion effect may be less near estuary on both sides. Boats and ship (to Lakshadweep) can move smoothly along curved wall. If small gutters joining reservior & Harekala river stretch are taken care of then water will also be clean. The channel from Harekala to Ullala can be used for boat movements if water level can be maintained or a road can be constructed over it or the channel can even be constructed under existing road stretches. Even barrier can be used as a road. I think but there is also need for a pumping arrangement to pump back brackish water collected between two barriers to the sea (what should be the height of the main barrier?).

Drinking water supply system upgradation goal: Jalasiri - ADB 2nd stage project report aubmitted to corporation
Special meeting to be called to approve water supply project

IISc slides in THE World University Rankings 2018 - What else is expected? The real estate mafia of the parched city is ruining everything in that city & also ruining the whole Karnataka. IISc to prepare aquifer plan for parched districts - Whether IISc now has ability to do this? What we need is also a plan to relocate people from 'over crowded parched city' to water rich regions so that saved water can be used by people of the parched region. But, real estate mafia of the parched city, which will go bankrupt if this is done, will not allow good thing to happen to people of Karnataka.

Karnataka wants to become the electric vehicle capital of India
One of the top mandates for Karnataka’s policy is to set up EV manufacturing zones along with facilities for testing that can be used even by start-ups.
If this electrical vechicle manufacturing zone & research facilities are set up in North Karnataka, say Dharwad (known for automobile industries), then probable safety of Tulunadu and Malenadu rivers will enhance. Tuluvas, please support development of North Karnataka to save yourselves. In the next election we should vote for a party which comes up with a good plan to de-congest the parched region by developing the rest of Karnataka and hence ensuring eco-safe & equitable growth of Karnataka. (eco-safe means ecologically & economically safe).

Panel to study proposal to draw water from Western Ghats rivers to Bengaluru
BWSSB has set up a special committee to assess proposals to get water from Western Ghat rivers — Sharavathi, Yettinahole and Netravathi. The committee is headed by BWSSB engineer Ravindra.
“There is no shortfall at present, but it will rise in the coming years and we are planning for 2050. The population will increase to 20.56 million and the city will need 4,100 MLD every day. The special committee is looking into the feasibility of the various proposals,” a senior BWSSB official said on condition of anonymity.
“Though there are difficulties, the government has announced these projects. We are now seeing how they can be implemented. For example, getting water from Sharavathi river is very difficult, but since the minister has announced it, we are working on it. Same is the case with Yettinahole. We see difficulties in implementing it, but assessment is still on,” the official added.
That means they have taken Tulunadu people's opinion for granted and going to have a name sake opinion meeting. Look at the way which they are targetting for 2 crore people shamelessly without coming up with a plan to divert people to other cities. Why not Karnataka have a dedicated ministry for family planning for the parched city? Let God bless the real estate mafia of the parched city & thier land banks!

And how Sharavathi water planned to be taken to the parched city and not to cities of North & Central Karnataka! And a minister had already started inciting those people against coastal Karnataka. Request North & Central Karnataka people not to allow this to happen!

As far as Karnataka was concerned something good was happening through smart cities. Karnataka was almost in the edge of moving towards equitable growth with many of cities in North & Central Karnataka selected for smart cities. This happened inspite of the real estate & business mafia of the parched city crying for its favourite two cities. And there was hope that eco-system will be built & investment will pour into the region which was not favourite destination of investors so far as these regions now had advantage of being smart & the favourite destination of investors was not in smart city list. Then first, the state government helped the mafia by declaring that special grant will be cancelled for cities selected for smart cities. (Though the government did not do it for cities selected for JNNURM earlier as posted already.) And finally real estate mafia of all capital cities succeeded in pressurizing the central government & in including names of capital cities in the list of smart cities. And there ended dream of those parts of Karnataka for equitable growth!

Vision 2025 for Dakshina Kannada: District administration to hold workshop on October 3

My vision for Karnataka is "Relocate 25 lakh people from the parched city to other cities - Mangaluru-Udupi (10 lakhs), Hubbali-Belgaum (10 lakhs) and Gulbarga-Ballari (5 lakhs) by building economical infrastructure in these cities". But the problem is mission. I am trying to come up with a mission which people of Karnataka can execute in the next election for equitable growth of entire Karnataka in spite of all crooked strategies of the parched city real estate mafia.

Yettinahole Project get Green Tribunary green signal with strict conditions

'NGT verdict on Yettinahole relief to state'

People of Kolar and Tumakur wanted their lakes and other water bodies to be revived. But the politicians just made money in the name of reviving lakes. Hope at least Yettinahole water will reach them!

Yettinahole project: Patil hails NGT order
“On humanitarian grounds, they should not have opposed the scheme as it is meant to provide drinking water to Kolar and Chickballapur facing drinking water crises for decades. A large section of the population of these districts are forced to consume flouride water. Those opposing the scheme would have realized the gravity of situation if they were born in these districts,” he said.
Okay. Now on humanitarian grounds, act against Real Esate Mafia of the parched city and let development happen in other parts of Karnataka also. If you politicians had not used tactics like '24x7 electricity supply only to the parched city' then other parts of Karnataka would have got better electrical supply and developed fast. (North Karnataka, Coastal Karnataka, Malenadu though produces surplus electricity suffers from constant power cuts). Kannadigas would have moved to these parts than to the parched city if electricity produced by these regions used locally. And then the surplus water from the parched city could have been supplied to the parched region surroundng it. Now also it is not late. Wherever plenty of water is available in Karnataka convert those regions to 24x7 water supply regions and let development happen there and let people move to those zones instead of doing everything in favour of real estate mafia of the parched city who are just interested in selling their properties at exorbitant prize and looting Kannadigas by forcing them to migrate to the parched city. Act for interest of Kannadigas, not for the interest of the real estate mafia of the parched city.

The minister should not forget that this is conditional approval with strict conditions! It is time to implement the project to its spirit rather than filling money bags of politicians and beaurocrats. Anyway let us hope that those who produced false project report will be punished by higher courts at least. (Note that the people have already agreed for errors in the Yettinahole report and then came up with fresh projects of coastal reservior and desalination plants).

4.2 MLD is too low for expected population for the next ten years itself. Thirty years is just blah blah! Looks like a requirement of the real estate mafia of the parched city!

Startup Kudla: Education, Research & Innovations

A group of proactive citizens in Mangaluru are doing their bit to help ...

There should be a educational programme to train students to face failures at school level itself. Many of students are committing suicide after examnination failures. What has to be taught is a subject of research!

Class 10 student turns areca sheaths into ecological pens

Wonder which material, which is waste and abundantly available, can be used for making biodegradable pens (including biodegradable ink) in Tulunadu. Just like potato or starch plastic can we have waste jackfruit seed plastic or may be colocasia tuber plastic? Is there any plan for raw materials supply to biodegradable plastic industries coming up in proposed plastic park? (But MRPL is setting up ethanol plant in Harihar, Tulunadu can think of such an ethanol factory after Pashchima Vahini is implemented only.) All items need not be fully biodegradable plastic but may include plant parts which are abundantly available in the region like eco-pen mentioned in the news link above but with biodegradable plastic tube & ink. Our schools may introduce students on how to produce bioplastic. {1,2,3,4}. If not schools, Bagundi Hobby Theme Park (for Clean Technology) can have a facility like moulding machine or 3D printer (a few fortunate schools will be supplied with 3D printers as a part of 'startup coast' project but hobby theme park is common facility for other schools' kids) for manufacturing various biodegradable plastic components. Students can experiment on plastic at schools or homes helped by teachers & parents and then give shape to final components at hobby park including toy planes.

By the way, if 'Skill University' is set up in Uttara Kannada district by 'Skill Development Minister' it would be a big boost to the district (which does not have any university) and also coastal Karnataka (even if it is set up close to Goa International Airport). And in addition if new Defense Minister, who is also MP of Karnataka, considers Uttara Kannada as suitable location for "Defense Engineering College" then people of coastal & north Karnataka will be more than happy.

What is the progress on NIELIT? MP Sir, Tulunadu wants to know whether at least campus wall is built around the NIELIT site? As far as investment domains of Economic Corridor is considered people may revolt against PCPIR, the state election is nearing, best option is to declare coastal Karnataka as 'Marine Ivestment Region'. It is time to full fill the long time aspiration of Tuluvas (Udayavani style) and get 'Indian Marine University' campus sanctioned for Mangaluru. And even 'Petrochemicals University' or 'RGIPT' which can offer job opportunities to highly educated Tuluvas without spoiling environment (We have got a pool of pollutant petrochemical industries already, so why non-pollutant lotus emerging from it should blossom somewhere else in the parched region?) should be pursued. As Sagarmala identified Mangaluru Port for food grains we have to also check which type of educational institutes we need to build economy around it.

Scientists research on drug delivery to brain tumour

Mangaluru: App launched for fishermen across India
MS Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) and ICAR- CMFRI, Mangalore Research Centre, Mangaluru has jointly taken up the programme of piloting and up-scaling of Pan India Fisher Friend mobile application in Karnataka this year. Dr Prathibha Rohit, principal scientist and scientist In-charge, Indian Council of Agricultural Research(ICAR) - Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), said that the project programme will be launched on Tuesday at Mangaluru Fishing Harbour at 11.00am and at Malpe Fishing Harbour at 4.00pm.

Being the largest research organization in marine fisheries research in India, ICAR-CMFRI has always worked towards developing research programmes for the overall development of the sector and assisting fisher folk in adopting new technologies to enhance their efficiency. “The mobile app is in Kannada and will be very useful for the fishermen and gives information on potential fishing zones, ocean state, weather forecasts, disaster alerts, GPS, danger zone alerts, market realities, emergency contact numbers, and international maritime border line and so on,” said Prathibha.

The Pan India Fisher Friend Mobile Application (FFMA) is an Android-based app available in all the regional languages of coastal India and has been designed to provide easy access to all relevant information and knowledge related to fishing.
Didn't know this. Does CMFRI have any programme to introduce "Fisheries Informatics" & "Fisheries Information Management" courses in any college say Fisheries College or AIMIT?

I hope some engineering colleges will work on 'amphibious high speed boat' {1,2} also which can be used to ferry people directly from airport to regions like Udupi, Gokarna etc apart from other usages.

Dangerous Kudla

Pedestrian falls into basement, lies unconscious for an hour, people take photos

That is the most dangerous building of Mangaluru. Look at the stair cases without any protection. What happens to small children who have a habit of running here and there? Even internal staircases require protection at sides.

There is another building adjacent to it where staircase goes towards Corporation Bank Office. The height of parapet is too short to support you if you lose balance.

Whether FIR is filed?

Is there anyone fighting for the safety of Kudla's citizens? Or all our communities and the political parties are just busy fighting for naming of a road? When we don't respect for the ultimate sacrifice of the men faught for our freedom while naming roads how are we expected to fight for a fellow citizen's safety?

Could understand the cost figure of 1.2 lakh cores for NH-75 Economic Eorridor development only after adding costs for developing all investment regions including in Hassan, Tumakur etc. But even after adding costs of a few hundreds of hublot watches still it is very very difficult to explain Rs.12,000 crores cost for extending runway.

Rs 4,000 crore needed for runway extension at Mangaluru airport, says fresh proposal

Good that the cost has come down after re-estimation. Generally this will not happen as as time moves forward cost will also move forward unless somebody has discovered a special watch to move in reverse direction - means deflation. Still the following sentence is confusing.

the authority has estimated that Rs 4,000 crore would be needed for land acquisition.
If we opt for 'Amphibian Highspeed Boats' (hoping they have fuel efficiency comparable to normal highspeed boats) then we not require airport tunnel connectivity to Gurupura river. In addition amphibians can enter heart of Mangalore & Udupi cities and even can go upto Manipal.

Mangaluru Inc wants airport upgraded
“With two million passengers in FY 16-17, it’s further expected that the growth percentage would be higher than previous years in the years to come. We have heard Mangalore airport may be downgraded for International flights after DGCA recommendation that 240 m be provided for usable RESA. The usable runway should not be cut down. This can be done by constructing additional 60 m of runway length and providing lights on elevated towers from the slope area below. A proposal has also been submitted to the Centre to sanction the extension of runway length of MIA from 2,450 m to 3,050 m by acquiring 62 acres of land with a project cost of Rs 600 – 700 crore.
Extension of runway at MIA: Who should bell the cat?
Going by the recent developments, it is clear that the runway extension at Mangalore International Airport (MIA) has been shelved as the state government is delaying the acquisition of 62 acres of land required to extend the runway length up to a distance of 3050 metre which is mandatory for wide bodied aircraft to land in MIA.
A great deal of reluctance is seen on the part of the Government of Karnataka (GOK) to consider the proposals of airport development in Mangaluru who should therefore be more concerned with the regional development plan when such plans are offered to it. But it is apparently seen that it is being cold shouldered time and again.

It may be mentioned here that the land acquisition proposal was submitted to the government as early as in 2006 as per the master plan prepared by Airports Authority of India (AAI) which had requested the agencies concerned to reserve the land for airport development purposes.
Rs 4,800 cr proposal

Quite interestingly, the latest proposal submitted by AAI for constructing 3500 metre length of the runway in MIA is over Rs 4,800 crore. On the other hand, if the required length of the runway is limited to operation of an aircraft of the type Boeing 767 or 777, a length of 3050 meter will suffice and the cost will be drastically reduced.

The story will be incomplete if it is not mentioned here that already AAI has a stretch of land of dimension 3100metre x 150metre (several places strip is being developed), including the present runway available with it on the hill top and it requires only 240x90 metre area of land on both the sides to be acquired to provide Runway End Safety Area (RESA) and 600x60 metre land for providing precision approach landing lights.

Thus, the airport requires hardly 79 acres of land for extending the runway. The part of this land is available with AAI at the central portion and the land to be acquired is attached to this land all along.

The next best thing what the GOK can do is to bring down the cost of filling the valley to initiate an aeronautical survey on the feasibility, instead of extension of present runway 06/24 to provide runway 07/25 anew from the present start of runway 06 on the new integrated terminal building side. For this will make ample land available without disturbing valley.

The runway may pass through old terminal building area and will not affect populous area. This runway 07/25 can get land for runway length up to a distance exceeding 4000meters if properly planned. Since AAI has already developing a parallel Taxiway filling the valleys, it will release a great amount of land for runway strip of 300 metre width. This proposal should be given proper weight. This will also enhance safety in every respect for the aircraft operations.
But who should bell the cat?

Mangalore should also get direct connection with Guwahati, Varanasi, Lucknow, Patna and Kolakata with a in between stop at Mumbai or Hyderabad. If Governor Acharya, who is interesting in developing close ties between Seven Sisters and Tulunadu, tries then connection to Guwahati may become a reality soon. This will give boost to & fro tourism including educational tourism. We also want connectivity to Madurai & Vijayawada.

He explained that the new section with have a 9,000 sq metres building, two aerobridges, and three conveyor belt canopies. "At present, we have three conveyor belts out of which two are used for domestic passengers and the other one for international passengers. Once the new facility comes up, both domestic and international travellers will get three belts each," he stated. He also pointed out that the currently the airport building is spread over 18,000 sq metres.
Rao said that L&T Ltd had been entrusted with the task of conducting study about the possibility of extending the current runway here and to suggest different choices.

J.R. Lobo, MLA, Mangaluru City South, and former executive director of the nisargadhama said that the government has released Rs. 5 crores for upgrading the road from Vamanjoor Junction to the entrance of the nisargadhama as a four-lane concrete road.

In addition, the government has released Rs. 2 crores for developing the roads inside the nisargadhama. The government has released Rs. 1 crore to upgrade the entrance to the nisargadhama.

Mr. Lobo said that the government has proposed to set up a ‘matsyalaya’ in the nisargadhama at a cost of Rs. 15 crore. But it would require at least Rs. 25 crore to set up the state of the art ‘matyalaya’.

Mr. Seetharam said that the 3D planetarium being built at the nisargadhama would be commissioned by December.

It would be the country’s first 3D planetarium and the world’s 21st advanced planetarium. It would use hybrid technology and an 8K projector system. The Minister said that the planetarium costing about Rs. 36 crore would be inaugurated by organising an international science conference. It would have a 3D theatre where 180 persons could watch science shows at a time.

Artificial Intelligence workshop in Nitte

Systems Thinking in Public Health discussed at Mangaluru

Good. Systems theory. Our students are now getting ready to learn Systems Biology, Fisheries Bioeconomics, Tourism Theory and also Systems Thinking in other domains like Agriculture, Maritime, Marine etc.

My suggestion is Mangalore University should have 'School of Tourism' (like IITTM, 2, 3) with expert staff in Tourism Theory, Tourism Informatics etc. (After losing 'School of Economics' to the parched city we should not lose this one also. Be careful!). Courses offered by should include Tourism Informatics (BCA/MCA or Bachelor/Master of Information/Data Science) degrees and Tourism Information Management (BBA/MBA) degrees. Special focus should be on 'Medical Tourism Informatics' & 'Medical Tourism Information Management' as DK is declared as 'Medical Tourism District'. (I should had included need for this institute in my post on making Mangaluru a mega medical/health city and medical/wellness/health tourism city). That should help in proper planning of medical tourism resources. It is interesting to study what kind of interface 'Medical Tourism Informatics' will have with 'Health/Medical Informatics'. The School of Tourism may also have an innovation centre for tourism related software startups or it should have a strong team of staff providing all sort of theoretical guidelines to software startups working from other innovation centres.

School of Tourism should also work in areas to give Modern Touch to Pilivesha (Tiger dance, Tiger Masque) and other traditional art forms as they play an important role in attracting tourists. For example, can find out modern way of dressing up using body hugging technical-textile or eco-textile products so that body of dancer is kept cool or can research on new moves in tiger dance just like how Dr. Shivaram Karnath gave novel touch to Yakshagana.

Here are a few more bullet points to 'Bagundi Startup Theme Park'
  • Bioplastic toys & other bioplastic gadgets production facilities
    Originally Posted by BolliBatlu View Post

    Wonder which material, which is waste and abundantly available, can be used for making biodegradable pens (including biodegradable ink) in Tulunadu. Just like potato or starch plastic can we have waste jackfruit seed plastic or may be colocasia tuber plastic? Is there any plan for raw materials supply to biodegradable plastic industries coming up in proposed plastic park? (But MRPL is setting up ethanol plant in Harihar, Tulunadu can think of such an ethanol factory after Pashchima Vahini is implemented only.) All items need not be fully biodegradable plastic but may include plant parts which are abundantly available in the region like eco-pen mentioned in the news link above but with biodegradable plastic tube & ink. Our schools may introduce students on how to produce bioplastic. {1,2,3,4}. If not schools, Bagundi Hobby Theme Park (for Clean Technology) can have a facility like moulding machine or 3D printer (a few fortunate schools will be supplied with 3D printers as a part of 'startup coast' project but hobby theme park is common facility for other schools' kids) for manufacturing various biodegradable plastic components. Students can experiment on plastic at schools or homes helped by teachers & parents and then give shape to final components at hobby park including toy planes.
  • Carts Arena - This arena like 'skating arena' is used for testing, training and holding competitions for motorcarts, hoverboard, autotrolleys, disabled trolleys (including features to claim staircases safely) etc. Arena could be consisting of twisted paths (may be narrow) like 'car race arena'. Arena may require staircases in case these carts can claim staircases. (with a few mechatronics features incorporated.) Nearby there will be a workshop for assembling hoverboards, carts {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,11} (kids can just assemble ready made kits in case they can not use tools). (Even amphibious bike/kayak/hoverboard etc can be tested if lake is linked to 'cart arena' {1,2,3}. But as I am thinking of Bagundi to be specialized theme park for Petrochemicals/CleanTechnology and Kaup for amphibious vehicles hence 'amphibious carts' are not included.). The 'carts arena' need not have sitting arrangement. If arena is surrounded by hillocks with grass then same can be used for sitting or spectators can just stand. Even carts arena itself can have up & down paths.

Will add more bullet points as and when come across them.

And for carts whole Maidan is there.

Only thing is Bagundi may be inconvenient location for many makers but 'Tile Factory Hobbyzania' suggested earlier could be more convenient place for 'Makers Space'. Some more things to observe are 'Community Service Centre' is also closely related to 'Cowork Space' and 'Makers Space'. And 'ITI/College Innovation Centre' serves only its students but 'Makers Space' serves everyone but may not be free.

Why not builders who are building clubs also build 'Makers Space'? If 'Incubation/Innovation Centre' can be a part of residential township then 'Cowork Space' & 'Makers Space' can also be a part of a residential township.

Here is what 'Co-learning Space' - Skill-yourself centres that mould entrepreneurs out of novices. 'Startup Theme Park' could be considered as co-learning space also.

City gets its own Alzheimer's clinic for senior citizens

Full-fledged Surgical Gastroenterology dept commences at A J Hospital
A J Hospital to have a new surgical gastroenterology wing

This app gets Mangaloreans an ambulance in the golden minutes
Mangaluru, September 27:

Considering the need to better utilise the golden minutes during medical emergencies, a Mangaluru-based technology company, medical experts and hospitals have come forward to launch an ecosystem that integrates an app and a network of volunteers.

While the app is an ambulance aggregator, other stakeholders help create a network of trained volunteers with basic life saving skill training to handle medical emergencies.


Launching the mobile app ‘Savior’, Dikshith Rai, Chief Executive Officer of the Mangaluru-based Codecraft Technologies, said ‘Savior’, the ambulance aggregator, provides single-click access to the nearest ambulance and brings down the response time of ambulances significantly. The user need not remember any phone number for this.

How it works?

The person booking ambulance on the app need not pay for booking. The location and the expected time of arrival of the ambulance can be tracked with the help of this app, he said.

Stating that app’s eight network hospitals in Mangaluru have 25 ambulances, the patient can decide the destination hospital irrespective of the ambulance that picked him/her up. For example: If the ambulance of hospital ‘B’ picks the patient up and the patient decides to go to hospital ‘A’, the ambulance will go to hospital ‘A’ only.

Till the time the ambulance arrives, the citizen at the spot of medical emergency plays a crucial role in saving the life during the golden minutes. Considering this, ‘Savior’ health awareness campaign team has been training a network of volunteers to handle such situations, Dikshith Rai said.

Manish Rai, cardiologist from Mangaluru and member of the ‘Savior’ campaign team, said the objective of the campaign is to educate people about emergency situations such as accidents and heart attacks, etc, and to create a network of trained volunteers with basic life saving skill training to handle such situations. The volunteers enrolled in ‘Savior’ will get notifications in case of medical emergencies in nearby areas.

Stating that this is an effort to create a first responder network, he said these volunteers can play a crucial role during the golden minutes of health emergencies. The team has already interacted with 850 students in different colleges in Mangaluru. Plans are there to approach high schools in the city to train students on tackling health emergencies, he said.

Asked if the model will be replicated in other cities also, Dikshith Rai said the team would decide on it based on Savior’s experiences in Mangaluru.
'Savior' app for medical emergency
DH News Service, Mangaluru, Sep 28 2017, 0:26 IST

To respond to medical emergencies, under the ‘Savior Campaign,’ CodeCraft Technologies has developed the “Savior” mobile app and that networks eight Mangaluru hospitals.

Speaking to media persons here on Wednesday, CodeCraft Technologies CEO Deekshith Rai said that the Savior mobile app helps one to call an ambulance during medical emergencies. Not only is it backed by technology and a network of hospitals, it involves trained volunteers in ambulances.

“We will keep expanding our network of hospitals,” he said.

He said “One tap is all you need during an emergency and the Savior app will make sure that the user gets an ambulance wherever he/she is. It’s as easy as calling a cab. The app is available in Kannada, Malayalam and English. The app can be downloaded through Google Playstore.

Rai added that the app user can save basic medical details in the app and Savior sends it to the concerned hospital with one tap on the SoS button.

If the app user wants to keep friends and family informed when he/she is in need, Savior app has an option to set emergency contacts who need to be notified during an emergency. Also, Savior allows the app user to call ambulances for himself/herself or others by tapping on “Get Help”. If multiple ambulances are needed, then Savior has an option for it too.

Lack of awareness

Cardiac Electrophysiologist Dr. Maneesh Rai said owing to lack of awareness in handling medical emergencies in India, many deaths occur en-route to hospital. First aid and life saving skills will help patients survive.

The app reduces the time taken to reach the hospital of the user’s choice even if the ambulance that picks the patient belongs to another.

Specialist in Department of Emergency Medicine Dr Jeedhu Radhakrishnan said as a part of Savior campaign, its network hospitals had interacted with 850 college students in Mangaluru. With basic life saving skills training, people can make an impact and save lives during an emergency. Those interested, are trained and certified by the Savior team. A curriculum of life saving skills has been prepared for 8th to 10th standard students too.

“We are approaching schools and colleges because it is attitude change that can save the lives,” he said.
Great! But wonder how much of telemedicine features can be incorporated into this. If at least there is way to help in firstaid (using mobile camera) it would be great. Having firstaid procedures on finger tips is always useful.

Other thing is how the emergency cases are priotized. Hope system will not be disturbed by too many false alarms!

Another thing is as I stated earlier we want autorikshaws also included in this. At least autorikshaw emergency service is useful for low-prority (less-emergency) cases when all ambulances are busy attending high-prority cases.

"service on call", "GPS based vehicle tracking" are welcome smart moves by autorickshaw drivers keeping in phase with smart city requirements. "service on call" is very important in medical emergency cases due to limited availability (especially during night) and non-manoeuvrability of ambulances in narrow streets.

Who cares! We will take our dear ones in Maruti, Autorikshaw or even pushing cart when ambulances are not available or unable to enter our narrow bylanes. We even drag our husbands on floor when stretcher trolleys are not available. And our minister Khader will continue to carry accident victims to hospital in his own vehicle.
How many times we have heard "ambulance इल्ल, रिक्षा माडिकोंडु बन्नि"? (no ambulance, do rikshaw and come - Kannada of TV channels & FM channels) .

When can we do everything with Aadhaar itself instead of having 100s of ID cards? Why are the government is introducing one more ID card instead of integrating data like blood group, 'whether or not organ donor'. 'contact details of close friend' etc with Aadhaar data itself? Ask people to carry small Aadhaar card with them by issuing them small one, if people don't want to submit biometrics then make biometrics optional for issuing Aadhaar card of different colour/size. Similarly all data of PAN, Vehcile License etc also be integrated to Aadhaar to get rid of those cards. People can be issued multiple copies of Aadhaar card if needed just like having duplicate keys.
Some kind of card is always useful in case of emergencies.

Nurturing green future, Mohiudeen Wood supports ‘Mangalore Flower City’

A few years back MCC wanted to plant more stronger plants as some of the existing plants' branches were breaking during monsoon. What happened to this plan?

Biogas promotion: DKZP CEO leads the way
DK, Udupi districts bag Swachchta Darpan award

Greens see red over planting of mayflower saplings in city
These flower-bearing trees gained notoriety as tree fall claimed many lives and damaged properties in various parts of the state
One more concern is depleting ground water levels due to various reasons like concretized compounds not allowing water to seep to ground, decreasing rainfall, increasing heat forcing trees to vapourize more water, more MCC borewells etc. Will these trees survive? How the smart city takes care of maintaing groundwater level?

Smart Kudla

Review committee to accelerate the smart cities project execution

Lack of clarity on progress of work under smart city scheme questioned

Rs. 50 crores for underground cables

Smart City Central Command Centre is getting ready
Summa: The DPR is ready for Rs. 60 crores Central Command Centre & tendering process will begin after technical approval by KUIDFC. Tenderer has to supply world class software & hardware. There will be CCTV cameras for every step of roads & buildings, automatic action for traffic violations, techological solutions for detecting watersupply faults & leakages, bus tracking system, emergency response buttons. Hampankatta, Bunder & Carstreet area of 1,628 acres will have HiFi & underground cables. All these are connected to Central Command Centre and action will be taken from there against any fault, violation or emergency. There is also plan for separate line for getting processed water.

Smart City proposal includes waste bins with RFID, 400 automatic waste disposal vehicles, 100 toilets (e-toilets?), 300 CCTV camera controlled traffic system, tracking system for 750 buses, 150 WiFi centres, 200 information boards, 20 walk ways, 30 ambulances with modern facilities, 20 km cycle track etc.
'Central Command Centre' to come up in Smart City

I love those 20 walkways if they are developed as in developed countries hoping that people will not alter them once they are laid. But what I know is both 20 walk ways, 20 km cycle track will be used for car parking in spite of CCC monitoring them through CCTVs. Why not they have included automatic car tracking system?

I was thinking so far processed water will be used by industries like MRPL. Whether the city is generating more waste water then needed by industries? Will houses with water harvesting facilities also need processed water?

CM Siddaramaiah to inaugurate Mini Vidhana Soudha at BC Road in October
"The Mini Vidhana Soudha building is being built at a cost of Rs 9.98 crore. Even the work on KSRTC bus stand is in the final stage. The bus stand is being built at a cost of Rs 10.7 crore and will be completed in 10 days," Rai said.

"The inspection bunglow at a cost of Rs 3 crores and MESCOM building at a cost of Rs 5.16 crore are also in the final stage of construction and will be completed soon. A 100-bed Bantwal taluk hospital at a cost of Rs 6.15 crore will be completed soon. The multi village drinking project costing Rs 34.95 crore to provide drinking water for 65 villages in Bantwal and water treatment plant of 24.16 MLD have got administrative approval from the government and foundation stone for these projects will be laid by chief minister Siddaramaiah.

"The government has sanctioned Rs 1.66 crore for the construction of Panje Mangesharaya Smaraka Bhavana. The total cost of the project is estimated at Rs 5 crore," he said.

Karnataka to import 12 lightning sensors from U.S.
The key to this may be soil, said Naveen Chandra whose doctoral research focussed on soil types and lightning. “When we looked at Karkala taluk (Udupi district), we found out that areas with iron ore composition, such as Kudremukh, attracted more lightning. As mining depleted this iron ore, lightning strikes reduced too, while areas of soil with high resistivity continued to get higher incidence of lightning strikes,” he said.

Working with K. Lokesh from National Institute of Technology-Surathkal, Mr. Chandra used a geophysical sensor to map the soil types in Karkala taluk in Udupi district.
Whether Weather Radar, which is supposed to be installed in Mangalore, will also be used to provide lightning information to entire Tulunadu along with lightning sensors?

Smart Kudla: Issues & Suggestions

Smart Parking System for Smart City

MCC looking for a foolproof city street vending plan

Expanding Mangaluru: Should consider needs for Flyovers & Underpasses
Let Mangaluru become clean, beautiful traffic free city
Visit & see Melbourne

The first article suggests a costly solution which will encourage more traffic & requires more parking space. Other two articles suggest eco-friendly mass transportation system (again costly in the beginning), cycle track etc. The choice is ours!

Let Satellite Cities grow along with the Smart City

MCC contract workers face health hazards

Funds crunch stalls skywalk

Whether 'Skywalk' is a part of 'Smart Road? But I am hoping for a 'Pedestrian Subway' anyway!

Councillors upset over poor solid waste management

Protest against start of road development work without shifting utility lines

Traffic, infrastructure hit as Mangaluru gets heavy rain

Technical Issue: E-Toilets Closed
Just three months after opening, e-toilets shutdown in Mangaluru

We don't know how to maintain e-toilets. We will not be knowing how to maintain skywalk with escalator once it is constructed. Finally, we will not be knowing how to maintain any of smart city gadgets! When will we become smart enough to maintain them? Or do we need help from Artificial Intelligence for that?

‘Make Dakshina Kannada knowledge, tourism hub’
Experts from cross-sections of society offer suggestions to Vision 2025

Residents representing cross-sections of Dakshina Kannada district on Tuesday listed out their priorities to see the region become comprehensively developed in the next seven years in response to the government’s call for their views to its Vision 2025. The suggestions included making the region a hub of knowledge activities, empowering the younger generation with rational thinking, assuring scientific price to agriculture produce, making urban locales liveable and bringing all government services under the Sakala ambit.

District in-charge Minister B. Ramanath Rai inaugurated the consultative meeting in the morning while Chief Minister’s Principal Secretary Tushar Girinath gave an overview of Vision 2025 concept.

Issues were broadly classified under five themes. Eminent persons from respective fields and students were part of groups, each group having about 20 people. The groups, after detailed discussions, presented suggestions in the afternoon.


The former Kanara Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Jeevan Saldanha presented the overview of urban theme and said that there should be all-inclusive industrial townships. Communal harmony is a must for the overall development of the region even as strict compliance should be ensured to building by-laws.

Children should be involved in social service such as the NSS and physical activities right from school and college days, said retired professor in community development Rita Noronha, who led the group on social justice. Education has to be inclusive with gender and social sensitisation. Responding, Mr. Girinath agreed that the higher education sector lacked standardisation and the Knowledge Commission was working on it.

Special Agriculture Economic Zone, green army to address labour shortage, cold storage facility, scientific pricing for produces, value addition to jackfruit, agro-tourism, agro-fest and solar-enabled fish drying were some of the suggestions given by the group on agriculture led by Shivakumar Magada, Professor of Aquatic Biology, College of Fisheries, Mangaluru.

On the other hand, the group on industries led by industrialist Prakash Kalbavi suggested that Dakshina Kannada be made a hub of knowledge activities, including IT and ITES, by providing adequate facilities. More mega industries should come up in the region, it said and urged the government to thoroughly revamp port connectivity. The district has the potential to become the tourism gateway of the State, it said. Prajna Counselling Director Hilda Rayappan speaking for the group on governance said that Sakala should be extended to all departments. Policing should be people-friendly while law and order and investigation should be separated, she said.
Connectivity is the core issue
Mangaluru South MLA J.R. Lobo on Tuesday reiterated his demand to have improved connectivity to the coastal region by road, rail and air.

Speaking at the workshop on Vision 2025 here, Mr. Lobo regretted that despite Dakshina Kannada having four modes of connectivity — road, rail, sea and air, most of the State’s exports/imports are done through ports on the eastern coast.

The capacity of existing road and railway networks should be doubled to achieve the target, the MLA suggested and urged the government to prepare a roadmap to have metro-rail corridor between Mangaluru and Udupi (Konaje-Manipal).

Vision 2025 should be prepared to fully exploit the strengths inherent to the district, he urged.
Vision-2025: People urge govt to focus on agriculture sector

Karnataka could go for region specific development under Vision 2025
Various parts the state are unequally developed. There is no point in replicating one model in districts that have achieved certain development indices, noted Tushar Girinath, principal secretary II to chief minister.
Hope this distinction will help Karnataka politicians & beaurocrats to come out of usual cliche words "The parche city has eco system. Others do not have eco system."
Vision 2025 is also aimed at enabling each district carry out a SWOT analysis and work around their strengths and come on par with state, national if not international development indices. "The government wants each district to work on its strengths. In DK, under allied sector the focus could be on fisheries development - inland and marine as against in dryland and irrigated areas where a flagship scheme such as Krishi Bhagya holds greater meaning," he noted.
Vision 2025: Handbook will be ready by year end - Facebook, Twitter & Whatsapp to be used to collate people's opinion

Will they open a new link in MyGov.in for Dakshina Kannada? Aren't they going to conduct opinion polls?

Whether 'Pashchima Vahini' project will be completed by year 2025 or not? Whether all cities of DK get 24x7 water supply? (The real estate mafia of the parched city is really afraid of this as once this is achieved people & investors move to water rich region. So it would be hard to get the government money for this although it is a fraction of money the government wasting on the parched city.)

Let us also have a vision to achieve 'Smart Tulunadu' by year 2032. By that time we should have full 'Tulunadu Enterprise Resource Planning' application fully ready. But who will be CEO of Tulunadu?

Startup Kudla: Education, Research & Innovations

Alvas-CPCRRI agreement for Botanical Research

Hardware Incubation Centre in Mangalore

Summa: After the central government established 'Software Incubation Centre' at Mallikatta, the state government now is going to establish 10,000 square meter 'Hardware Incubation Centre' near KSRTC Busstop, Bejai. This will have innovative hardware design facilities and will be inaugurated in December this year.

Wonder whether this is so called 'Common Instrumentation Centre'! When will Mangalore get 'Makers Space' and 'Marine Biotech Incubation Centre'?

Whether in Mulki enough government land is available for 'Marine Knowledge City'? This could have 'distributed campus' (vs 'central campus') structure like Oxford University with individual departments or institutes located in different sites but closer to each other.

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, M'luru celebrate IEEE Day
M Sathu, AGM of Corporation Bank gave the memorial lecture on the topic 'India Stack' regarding software framework developed by Government of India for various digital India applications.

Anyone in Mangaluru getting ready with 'Legal Informatics/Analytics'? {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}. There may be an associated subject Legal Information Management also.

NITK develops simple method for purification of Arsenic water & Seawater (2.4 MLD for villages)

In spite of receiving good rain tragedy is that the coastal region don't have good water storage system and we are living in a real estate mafia controlled state which has totally neglected Pashchima Vahini though it is just a fraction of the money the government is wasting on the parched city.

The state politicians are funny. They say that only the parched city has eco system. When we ask for alternative for the parched city they say Mangaluru also needs an alternative. But they don't clarify why a city neither with population nor with eco system needs an alternative city.

Consul of spain has roots in Mangaluru, 2,3

I was checking for ecological robots. The driving reasons are to develop - robots serving environment cause and environmentally friendly robots {1}. The symbots partly developed using Biomechatronics/Biorobotics. Biorobotics usage for physically impaired person is interesting one. Now, which type of robots are encouraged in these competitions?

Whether in Surathkal beach we can hold submarine robot wars? What about competition for amphibious vehicles?

Mangaluru to get 'School of Finance & Analytics'

The school is likely to function from next year in the college which is celebrating 150 years

A School of Finance and Analytics offering post-graduation courses is likely to be come up in the University College here from the next academic year as the college entered its 150th year last month.

In addition, the college has proposed to open a business incubation centre for the development of entrepreneurship.

They were among the proposals mooted by a committee formed to celebrate the 150th year.

Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday, M. Veerappa Moily, an alumnus of the college and honorary president of the committee, said that he has spoken to BRICS Bank Chairman K.V. Kamath, Karnataka Bank Chairman P. Jayaram Bhat and other bankers on setting up the school. The college and its alumni would press the government to sanction Rs. 50 crore for the school, he said.
