New bus stand
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will build a new bus stand at a cost of Rs. 30 crore for mofussil and express services at Udupi. KSRTC Chairman and Byndoor MLA K. Gopal Poojary told reporters on Monday that the bus stand would come up on a 2.5-acre land at Bannanje for which tenders will be being called for soon. These buses operate out of the old private bus stand taken on rent from the City Municipal Council.

Mr. Poojary said that the new bus stand would have an underground parking lot, 27 bus bays, a food court and a shopping complex. The bus stand can handle about 100 buses in an hour. Tenders have already been called for construction of a city bus stand in Udupi on the old DDPI office premises at a cost of Rs. 4 crore. Managing Director S.R. Umashankar said that the bus stand at B.C. Road would be ready for inauguration in about a month.

Padukere beach set to emerge as a major tourist destination
“Padukere can be developed as a beach where people come to spend their time in a quiet and leisure manner,” Sudesh Shetty, Developer In-charge of Malpe beach and St. Mary’s Island, said. Meanwhile, the Tourism Department has got proposals seeking to provide boat service to the nearby Darya Bahadurgarh Island (also called Bhadargad Island), where a fort is located. “We will have to get clearance from other authorities for this and also do a feasibility study on whether this can be provided,” Ms. Anitha said.
St. Mary’s Island to get green cover, more facilities
The island will now get a green cover with an eco-park where medicinal plants and local flora will be grown. As many as 50 almond saplings, 60 coconut saplings, along with saplings of mango and fig, were planted recently. Arrangements would be made to transport 10,000 litres of drinking water daily to the Island, which would then be reused to water these saplings.

The construction of the walkway will begin on November 1 and completed by December-end. An amount of Rs. 53.5 lakh has been released by the Malpe Development Committee to the Nirmiti Kendra to construct the sea walkway.

The length of the sea walkway will be 500 metres from the jetty and its width will be 8.5 feet.
Tourists will be able to watch breathtaking views of three islands, St. Mary’s Island, Light-House Island and the Bhadargad Island (also called Dariyagad or Darya Bahadurgad Island).

They will be able to watch dolphins at the sea walkway point in addition to the fishing boats going to catch fish during the mornings and evenings. Besides, it would be a good site for fish angling.

“The blue sky just before the sunset will be a scene the tourists will treasure,” Mr. Shetty said.

“We will have to do some stone cutting to level the land and then put the soil to create the sea walkway. Then we will put sand and after that we will put the inter-lock tiles and then the benches and ornamental lamps. It will be ready by December-end,” said Arun Kumar, project director, Nirmiti Kendra.

"We were in the process of scouting for ideal place for this adventure sport and found Mulki Rocks with its natural rock formations in the middle of the sea offering depths of up to 15 metres as the ideal place for people to try out 'try dive' programme that we offers," Pawan said.

A 30-minute boat ride takes one to the dive site. Assuring the divers - first timers included some of the best under-water experiences led by a group of skilled and passionate instructors at an initial offer price of Rs. 3500, Pawan says if a plan by the tourism department to start a marine park in the site materializes in the future, it will offer a memorable experience for the divers, something that a sunken ship off Goa offers to the discerning tourists who relish underwater sports.
Why just marine park? Why not Film City itself in Kaup along with marine park in sea? Let marine life conservation with marine park & ecotourism and building other economical infrastructure happen together supporting each other in a sustainable way. Anyway, how much total area of the sea will be declared as Marine Park?

He added that a sculpture camp is being organised as a part of the mega tourism event in the district. Udupi Parba and the sculptures by artistes from across the country would remain in Mannupalla as a part of asset building measure. This would enhance the beauty of the place as well as the identity. It would also hike the level of achievement to mark a niche for the artistes themselves. The artistes who are taking part are all well-known in the country, said Madhwaraj.

It would be a conglomeration of the various sculptural arts with cultural tradition, he said.

To develop Malpe as a tourist destination, so far the government has spent more than Rs 22 crore on various development works. The new walkway was built at a cost of Rs 54 lakh.

Malpe port is the second port in the nation with large number of fishing boats. St Mary’s island is also considered as one of the cleanest islands in the nation.
Malpe sea walkway opens to public
Malpe is known for having the second-largest boat anchoring harbour and it's a fast developing tourist spot. There's a beautiful St Mary's Island with columnar rock structure, which is found elsewhere only in Africa. Its also known as Swachh Island.

"We're also developing a 1.5-km stretch of Padukere Beach. It's a virgin beach which will be developed to get blue flag recognition. Once it is identified with a blue tag, it will attract international tourists. We're developing roads and toilets. Soon, it'll be India's No. 1 beach and the foundation for the project has been laid," he said. He added, "I hope Malpe fishermen don't depend only on fishing. They should generate revenue through tourism too."
Efforts on to get ‘blue flag’ certification for Padukere beach: Madhwaraj
Pramod Madhwaraj, Minister of State for Fisheries, Youth Empowerment and Sports, said recently that efforts are made to get the ‘blue flag’ certification for Padukere Beach near Malpe. He was speaking after inaugurating the State’s first Sea Walkway at Malpe, here.
The ‘blue flag’ certification is given by the Foundation for Environmental Education for a beach, a marina or a sustainable boating tourism operator.

Make in Udupi: Industries

Adani UPCL to start Cement production soon

Summa: Investment of Rs. 1,000 crores, 10 acres land, 2 MMT production capacity, 500 jobs. Clinker will be brought through railways. Gypsum will be produced from FGD (flue gas desulfurization) system of UPCL. Currently 2 x 600 MW UPCL thermal power plant produces 0.3 MMT of flying ash. And 1.2 MMT of flying ash will be available after increasing capacity by another 2 x 800 MW. 80% of flying ash will be used by Adani cement plant and remaining 20% will be used by by others.

Alva also said that the Power Purchase Agreement with government of Karnataka for UPCL’s expansion of 1,200 MW is in process of completion and the expansion Plant will be commissioned within 40 months. Presently the UPCL is meeting 12 percent of the total demand of electricity of the Karnataka State and with the expansion it will be adding another 1,200 MW to the Grid, making State self-sufficient to meet the electricity demand, he added.

Adani cement grinding unit would be set-up in the premises of UPCL plant for the utilization of fly ash and the cement unit provides employment opportunities to the locals. Setting-up of Water Desalination plant by Adani Group is also in the project pipeline to cater to the water requirements by Industries in Mangaluru and also provide free water supply to nearby villagers in and around UPCL plant, he added.
Coastal people have habit of feeding salt to coconut trees during rainy season. Hope now people will use some amount of desalination plant effluent for coconut trees instead of salt if effluent does not contain harmful chemicals (Desalination Plant Effluents Analysis).

Alupa Floating Filmcity

I was thinking about what are the facilities we should have in 'Kaup Seafront Filmcity' so to make it unique in the country.
  1. Facilities for adventure water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling, wakeboarding, kite surfing etc, also sky diving could be done using seaplanes.
  2. Oceanarium
  3. Startup Theme Park (Marine & Photography/Filmography themes)
  4. Warship Museum
  5. Underwater Museum {1,2} - Pauranik or Historic theme
  6. Marina with docking facilities for Catamarans, Houseboats, Kayaks, passenger boats etc
  7. Amphibious vehicles {1,2,3,4,5,6,7}
  8. As in other film cities of India {1,2,3}
  9. As in other waterfront theme parks of the world (waterslide through oceanarium, inflatable water park etc) {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8}
  10. Artificial Kayaking Arena (through oceanarium?)
  11. 'Film Studio' with 'Animation Studio'
  12. A school of 'Computational Creativity' and 'Cultural Analytics', film studies along with other film schools.
  13. 'Kambla Track' & other Tulundau heritage displays
  14. Residential township for film personalities

Startup/Hobby Theme Park within filmcity may lead to innovations in movies also. For example, innovative gadgets like kittyhawk can be used in films. Just imagine hero or heroine, who happens to be a hobbyist, flying on kittyhawk firing at terrorists' or smugglers' boat or ship.

Only thing is Kaup MLA should take interest to materialize the dream of people of his constituency for having a filmcity at Kaup and airport at Padubidri. By the way, why there is no news on progress made so far for construction of airport? Whether feasibility study is done or whether DPR itself is getting ready?

Apart from Kaup Marine Hobby/Startup Theme Park other Hobby/Startup Theme Parks are

1) Bagundi - Clean Energy/Technology & Petrochemicals
2) Deralakatte or Pilikula - Medical/Healthcare
3) Manpalla - Medical/Healthcare
4) Puttur - Agriculture & Food Processing

And then Kundapur, Karkala, Uppinangadi & BC Road will also have hobby theme parks or clubs.

So far no statement on this by Kaup MLA or Udupi MP. Neither on Padubidri Airport work commencement. I don't know what is the achievement of Udupi-Chickmagalur MP so far. I don't even think for bringing 'Gems & Jwellery Institute' to Udupi she had made any contribution and we all know about who is behind 'Startup Coast'.

Since the central government plan is to develop Kaup as health city (hopefully including health knowledge city) I have changed the title of the filmcity as 'Alupa Floating Filmcity'. This filmcity can be floating in sea near Kaup or anywhere in the coastal districts. Since Indian government has proposed plan to build floating cities developing a floating filmcity will not be a problem. Like the historical Alupa Kingdom this filmcity will also shine for more than thousand of years producing Tulu, Konkani, Beary, Hindi and also Kannada and other language movies. I think we can have more than 5000 acres floating filmcity in the sea. But the mall planned by an NRI can be within Udupi city itself including all kinds of film schools and film study institutes.

This report here is only a temporary setback to the coast as the CM favouring this city for filmcity is going to lose power in another two months and since the party coming to power will favour the coast. This is because the party coming to power will not win any seat in that region and it will win maximum number of seats in the coastal districts. There is also no threat of bollywood copying any idea from here. The filmcity definitely is coming to Karavali. Don't worry Karavalites!

Will Film City project be launched before elections? - In the past also foundation stones were laid for so many things before election and then abandoned. In this case also the next government will decide the location of the film city. Tuluvas don't worry coastalwood will have its own film city soon.

B R Shetty to set up highly advanced multiplex at Udupi
• Dr B R Shetty plans to set up India's highly advanced multiplex at Udupi as part of supporting Project Indywood and as a gift to his hometown
• Another big budget project from NMC Group Founder after the announcement of Rs 1000 crore Mahabharata movie
• More NRI tycoons and corporates to support 10 billion US dollar Project Indywood
BR Shetty plans to set up multiplex at Udupi
The Rs 70,000 crore Project Indywood aims at initiating 10,000 new 4K projection multiplex screens, 100,000 2K/4K projection home cinemas, 8K/4Kfilm studios, 100 animation/VFX studios and film schools conforming to international standards.
I am more interested in 'Film City' than multiplexes. But hope multiplex will give boost to animation industry by reserving enough office space for animation studios.

Karnataka government on one hand talks about eco-system. But on the other hand wants to promote a film city in a city where film industry does not even exist. We have eco-system ready with coastalwood. And coastal Karnataka can easily expand to both Kannada & Hindi films production also as we have enough stars & directors in both Bollywood & Sandalwood. But strange are the ways in which politics work.

What we need to produce is very good Hindi Script Writers so that we can contribute to Hindi Film, Comics, Cartoons Industry in a big way and earn enough from it. Don't we have enough people knowing Hindi? And we need then dubbing artists also. Hope Film Schools planned along with multiplex will achieve this.

By 2020, India will be the only country in the world to have 1,000 8K screens: Indywood founder Sohan Roy
Sohan Roy added, "BR Shetty was the only billionaire, who attended the 2nd edition of Indywood Film Carnival last year. He already announced Rs 1,000 crore movie, which is going to be the biggest budget film ever made in Indian cinema. He has also announced to build the 8K cinema in his native Udupi, Karnataka and it is first ever theatre in India. This is also the first of its kind of cinema hall."
Whether 'School of Film Studies' is also included in the plan for Udupi?

Udupi: Coastal Karnataka’s ‘first’ recharge wells are ready to tap rainwater

Rs. 245-cr. plan to supply Varahi water to Udupi
With the Detailed Project Report being submitted to the government for getting Varahi water to Udupi through pipelines to meet the drinking water needs during summer, the tenders for this project are expected to be floated in about a month-and-a-half.

The project, under the Karnataka Integrated Urban Water Management Investment Programme (KIUWMIP), envisages laying pipelines for 39.6 km from the jackwell of the non-functional lift irrigation pumphouse at Bharathkal village across the Varahi to the dam across the Swarna at Baje, about 15 km from Udupi.

This would provide round-the-clock and round-the-year water to the city. This project would cost Rs. 270 crore. Last year, the water in the Swarna had dried up on April 29 and the Varahi has perennial water supply. The other important projects which will be inaugurated by Mr. Siddaramaiah are the third phase of Malpe Fisheries Harbour built at a cost of Rs. 69 crore, the Rs. 9-crore Kurady Bridge, the Rs. 1.5-crore Zilla Panchayat Training Centre in Manipal among others.

The works which would be inaugurated and for which foundation stones would be laid had been estimated to cost Rs. 581 crore, Mr. Madhwaraj said.

'Nava Karnataka Vision-2025' inaugurated in Udupi, Madhwaraj briefs on district's development
"The government has sanctioned Rs 270 crore for the expansion of the Varahi project aimed at providing 24x7 water supply for the district. The department concerned has taken up road widening work at a cost of Rs 14 crore at Ambagilu-Manipal-Malpe and other city roads. In all, the government has spent Rs 600 crore for the road construction work. More than Rs 13 crore has been given for beach development.

In Education 4.0, students can create a degree of their own, are able to do a degree in nuclear science [combining it] with biotechnology, with dance, with music or with fundamental physics or something like that.

The mix and match is available and can be done offline or online. A student can sit at home do a course online and get a degree.

According to them, vigorous steps need to be taken for developing these standards for classical formulations in Siddha. As on today, said the team leader of a research team working on preparation of pharmacopoeial standards for Siddha medicines in Manipal University, only 20 poly-herbal drugs have been so far identified and subjected for analytical studies for developing standards out of the 40,000 classical formulations in Siddha.

When will be another 20 acres land requested by the university will be handed over to it? The above news item says the central government has released Rs. 50 crores. When will the state government release its share? Or whether the state government is just interested in doing another foundation stone laying drama?

Airports Authority of India planning to set up air cargo hub in Udupi district
Sat, Dec 9 2017 07:07:34 PM

Daijiworld Media Network - Karkala (SP)

Karkala, Dec 9: Airports Authority of India (AAI) has drawn up a plan to set up its cargo hub in the region, and has asked revenue department to acquire and hand over to it 2,500 acres of land.

The news has made the people of Inna, Belman, Mulladka, Mundkoor villages in the taluk as well as Palimar, Yellur, Santhoor, Nandikoor and other villages in Kaup taluk jittery as they are apprehensive of losing their land for this project.

It is said that such projects are also proposed to be executed in Mysuru, Belagavi, Vijayapura, Kalaburagi etc.

A decision to identify alternative land in three places of Udupi district was taken at a meeting of Airports Authority held at Bengaluru on June 1 this year.

It is said that the authority plans to manage traffic density in the international airport at Mangaluru in this way as it expects 56 aircrafts presently using he runway at Mangaluru per day to increase to 80 to 100 shortly.

Udupi district deputy commissioner has issued a notice to tahsildars of Karkala, Udupi and Kaup tauks to identify land for the said project and send a report thereof. The notice seeks to create international health city from Kaup lighthouse to Polipu beach, and for the proposed multi model new international airport and cargo hub for which it proposes to acquire land from Palimar, Mulladka, Mundkoor and Inna villages. Satellite images of the land that has be planned to be acquired from villages like Shiroor, Byndoor, Paduvari and Yadtare on the other end of the district, it is learnt. The taluks are expected to verify the satellite maps and provide details to the district administration.
'Nagpur Multi-modal International Air Cargo Hub' has air, rail and road connectivity. I think 'Udupi Multi-modal International Air Cargo Hub' will be real multi-mode transportation hub by having water transportation connectivity also.

Why not 'Health Knowledge City' along with 'Health City'? What we can wish for is all medical R&D, medical related IT/ITES works and medical devices manufacturing industries and pharmaceutical industries to be located in air cargo hub SEZ itself. Medical devices & parts, pharmaceuticals, jewelry (from Jewel Park), food, flower, textiles, garments, ship/boat spare parts, electronics, nanotech products, printed materials can be air cargo.

What about 'Film City'? As I said earlier even 'Karnad Sadashiva Rao Marine Knowledge City', 'Petroleum & Energy Knowledge City' can come up near the airport in Mangaluru Taluk. More land should be handed over to 'Belapu MU Campus'. Even 'Finance Knowledge & IT City' can be considered near airport.

So, if added both for DK & Udupi, requirement is 2,000 acres at Puttur and 2,500 acres in Udupi/Karkala/Kundpura for SAZ/SEZs. Whether land after acquisition will be handed over to private investors?

Can we expect 'Indian Institute of Logistics'?

Whether 'Shambhavi Waterway' would be developed as a part of air cargo hub /SEZ development? How many dams are planned along Shambhavi?

State of the art science research centre costing Rs 400 crore, setting up of government polytechnic by spending ten crore rupees, and primary and English medium high school, are aimed at making this village an educational hub. A small scale industries park is being set up in 68 acres land for employment and industry to brighten the future of young people.

The department has 1.10 acres of land close to the beach which it intends to develop for parking and other amenities for tourists at a cost of Rs. 1.36 crore under the Coastal Circuit Scheme. The funds have been released to Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited (KRIDL) for this purpose. A watch tower with life guard facility will also come up on the beach. To give the tourists a taste of coastal cuisine, food shacks too would be constructed. “Some food shacks would be given to owners of petty shops whose stalls were removed from the beach for its development,” Ms. Anita said.

The government has 13.12 acres of land opposite the Souparnika, on the other side of the highway. Here, the department would construct a Tourism Information Centre with all facilities, including a food court, at a cost of Rs. 6 crore. Those with a spirit of adventure would be able to enjoy the thrill of water sports in the river. A sum of Rs. 1.84 crore has been sanctioned for the development of water sports under the Swadesh Darshan Scheme of the Union government.

A house boat facility will be introduced by September in the river, while a floating restaurant is being planned near the river course. “Our aim is to attract tourists both from the country and abroad,” said Deputy Commissioner Priyanka Mary Francis.

To remain a tourist attraction
The department is considering allowing tourists to have sea-view from 'T' shaped groynes, which jut into the sea for about 110 metres, said B. Gopal Naik, Superintending Engineer of the Department.

“We are in touch with the tourism department so as to retain the region's original attraction,” he said.

Meanwhile, people can get into the sea in between the groynes as sufficient sand would have accumulated after completion of the project, he added.

Green wall in Udupi acts as coastal guard between the land and sea
Mangroves, which act as carbon sinks, serve as a vital coastal ecosystem for fishermen. ‘‘Fish rarely breed in the deep sea because the conditions are hostile. Fish prefer mangrove environments so they are protected against predation and strong water currents,” says KM Vijaya Kumar, Assistant Professor, Department of Zoology, Bhandarkar’s Art and Science College, Kundapur. Restoration of mangroves is essential to mitigate the effects of climate change, he adds.

The idea of restoring the mangrove forest struck Thingalaya, a farmer, when he heard forest officials talk about the importance of this plant that grows in intertidal zones. He approached them to get an idea about how to go about it. The forest department supported his cause and gave him the necessary suggestions, including forming a volunteer group.

Jeevandas Shetty, Deputy Range Forest Officer of Brahmavara section of Udupi range, says that mangrove forests in the estuaries of coastal Karnataka have started coming up in a big way after the forest department started growing them in 2008 under its ‘green wall’ project. According to the department statistics, over 800 hectares in the estuarine area have been brought under mangrove plantations. The areas are now full-fledged forests that can be developed into eco-tourism spots.
The luxuriant landscape is attracting not just marine and winged creatures. It is fast becoming a tourist hub and a photographer’s haven, with many people even venturing deep into them to see the bustling marine and avian life thriving here. While some of them wade into the waist-level water, others use small hand-paddled canoes.‘‘Planting and taking care of the mangrove trees has ensured that visitors come to our village,” Thingalaya says.

Udupi CMC to adopt new water rationing methods

Project to bring Varahi water to Udupi to be completed in 2.5 years
Prabhakar Sharma, Assistant Project Coordinator of Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation, said on Friday that the Rs. 300.27 crore project — to bring water from the Varahi at Bharatkal in Kundapur taluk to Baje in Udupi taluk to meet the drinking water needs of Udupi city — would be completed in two-and-a-half years.
A tender for the first package of Rs.122.5 crore was floated on January 27, while that for the second and third packages of Rs.60 crore and Rs.177.77 crore respectively will be floated in a month. The Detailed Project Report of the second package is under preparation, while the technical sanction is awaited for the third package. The execution of the three packages will take place almost simultaneously.

The entire project has been prepared by experts after a detailed study. This project will take care of water needs of Udupi city till 2046. Presently, the population of Udupi is 1.36 lakh and it is projected to be 1.94 lakh in 2046. Villages surrounding Udupi city too will be able to get drinking water from Varahi.

The water body plays a vital role in recharging groundwater table in Manipal and surrounding areas and hundreds of people visit the lake daily for walking. The water body, spread across 29.90 hectares, has a capacity to store 17,52,000 litres of water. The lake is filled with water during monsoon and attracts visitors. The water-level reduces drastically by February.

The Urban Development Authority has prepared a plan to remove silt from the lake at an estimated cost of Rs 60 lakh. The removal of the silt will help in increasing the water storage capacity in the lake.

The authorities are also mulling over the proposal to use the water in the lake as an alternative to supply water to Udupi city in case of emergency during peak summer, said sources in the Authority. There is also a proposal to extend the walking track around the lake.
