Concerns over security delay Shivaji memorial 27.11.2017 DNA: Top News
After concerns expressed by the Mumbai Police over the security of the proposed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Memorial off the coast of Mumbai, the Maharashtra government has appointed a committee of experts from all the departments concerned. Speaking to DNA, Member of the Legislative Council, Vinayak Mete, who heads the committee, said that after the security concerns expressed by the Mumbai Police, the government is going to take all necessary precautions and measures to ensure the security of the memorial. Earlier, concerns were raised that the statue could be vulnerable to terror attacks via sea route — on the lines of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, when terrorists entered the city via the sea route. Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the statue on December 24, 2016, the state government has so far spent Rs 15.82 crore on the project, but any actual work has yet to start on the reclaimed land in the Arabian Sea. It may be noted that 13 departments, including police, have ...

Maha govt may re-bid Shivaji statue in lieu of probable cost hike 7.7.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Faced with massive cost overruns in the construction of a memorial for Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the Arabian Sea, the state government may re-bid the project in packages. Instead of bidding out the entire project at one go, it may be split into smaller works like reclamation, construction of the equestrian statue and pedestal, jetties, and tourism infrastructure in an attempt to ensure lower costs. The state government plans to launch work on the statue and memorial after the monsoons. It wants the statue to be the world's tallest by raising it to a staggering height of 210 metres as against the proposed 192 metres. This may, however, spike costs from the present estimate of Rs 3,700 crore for the two phases. Though the state expected the first phase of the project to cost Rs 2,300 crore, Afcons and L&T had quoted Rs 4,779 crore and Rs 3,826 crore, respectively. MLC Vinayak Mete, who heads the committee implementing the project, admitted that the bids had surpassed their estimates. "We have asked our ...
