MMRDA plans to rent out space on monorail piers 25.9.2017 DNA: Money
Even as the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is yet to make the second phase of the monorail between Wadala and Jacob Circle operational, it has now figured that it can at least make some revenue by renting out the space on its piers (pillars) to advertisers. Since construction began in 2008, the pillars for the second phase have been ready for over five years now. "It would be too early to say how much revenue would be generated from the renting of space on the pillars, but the revenue generated from this would be utilised for infrastructure projects in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region," said Dilip Kawathkar, spokesperson, MMRDA. The second phase is expected to be made operational in December and the MMRDA is going to approach the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) next month to start conducting the trial runs. However, this similar attempt of leasing out space for advertisements — last time inside the coaches — did not yield any fruit, as phase one has been beleaguered by low ...

MMRDA floats bids for new monorail operator 8.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
After facing several problems in running monorail services for three years, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is now looking for a new operator. The authority on Thursday floated bids for the second time to find a new operator, who would operate and maintain the monorail for the next 10 years between Chembur and Jacob Circle. The MMRDA had floated bids in January this year but scrapped the same citing that the prospective bidders had few concerns with the tender process. “The contractors had requested us to decrease the amount of deposit that is the earnest money deposit. So in this case, we had to float new bids,” Sanjay Khandare, additional metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA. According to MMRDA officials, the contract with Malaysian firm, Scomi Engineering was for three years, and now it was up to MMRDA to either stay with the same contractor or appoint a new one. The bid floated by MMRDA on Thursday, reads, “MMRDA invites bids for operation and maintenance for elevated ...

MMRDA, jail officials face off over installation of cutters 12.8.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
While the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) readies itself to make the second phase of the monorail between Wadala and Jacob Circle operational by this year end, the long stand-off between jail authorities at Arthur Road jail and MMRDA does not seem to end. The jail authorities have said that the MMRDA has not installed steel 'view cutters' to block the view of the jail premises on the monorail route. Senior MMRDA officials, however, maintain that they had written to jail authorities and the home department expressing the inability to install the view cutters. The MMRDA has been contending that monorail takes only 15 seconds to pass through the prison premises and the idea of installing steel view cutters is not feasible technically and financially. "There has been no reply and hence it is anticipated that installation of steel view cutters is an issue," a senior MMRDA official said. However, when contacted, Arthur Road jail superintendent, Harshad Ahirrao, told DNA, "Authorities ...

Which zone do you pick? 27.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Bengaluru has consistently emerged as one of the top real estate investment hotspots on account of the expansion of its IT corridors, capital inflow by foreign investments (due to IT and industrial developments), cosmopolitan hubs and improvement in connectivity across the city through extended transport services. Some of the Government's proposed infrastructure, namely - the Peripheral Ring Road (PRR), metro rail, signal-free Outer Ring Road, high-speed rail link, monorail and elevated expressway are factors influencing real estate growth and capital appreciation potential in Bengaluru. Yeshwantpur, Sarjapur Road, Whitefield and parts of North Bengaluru are the City's most promising residential micro-markets to invest in a home. The Outer Ring Road (ORR), a 60-km stretch which connects the City with National Highway-4 and runs through all four zones of the City has witnessed massive real estate investment which promises high returns. Here's a summary of where one can invest in residential real estate ...
