Hidco allots 10 acre land to Amity University

The Board of Hidco met yesterday. Based on an e-auction held recently, a plot of 40,371 sq metres (about 10 acres) was allotted to Amity University. The site is located in Action Area 2, not far from the site of Alia University (under construction by HRBC).The joint measurement of the plot will take place today. Mr Atul Chauhan, Chancellor, told me that they would try hard to start the session next year.

On behalf of the East Kolkata Wetland Authority, a group of senior officers and members of EKW board visited Nalban Food Park now being maintained by the Fisheries Department. The idea was to find out how to give a facelift to the area without violating environmental norms. A group photo at the end of the visit yesterday morning:

We had a brainstorming session yesterday on issues relating to introduction of battery operated three wheelers in New Town. Manufacturers, bankers, engineers and WBREDA were present. The meeting was organised by NKDA whose board had resolved to have white vehicles with a blue stripe. Manufacturers agreed to adhere to the colour scheme. Bankers agreed to consider loan up to 85% to prospective individual buyers. Director WBREDA suggested setting up few public charging stations (I recalled that in New Town we already have pre-paid electric meter facility). Cost of a vehicle ranged from Rs 1.05 lakh to Rs 1.20 lakh. A picture:
