State Convention Centre

In the Board Meeting of Hidco held today, we decided to finalise a set of provisional tariffs applicable for renting various parts of the convention centre, including the smaller banquet halls and the mini auditoriums and the spaces in front of the halls, to be valid till such time a final tariff plan is worked out. For this, a three member Committee of Directors was formed with Mr Soumya Ray, Director as its Chairman. The Committee had discussed with various groups, consultants, Hotels, and studied prevailing practice in Vigyan Bhavan and industry norms. The objective was to make the rates competitive, yet attractive, and the ideawas to make Kolkata a Convention Destination. Incidentally, we have already received firm bookings from 2017 for the State Convention Centre.

Minister Firhad Hakim has agreed to have a review of the progress of construction on Tuesday next. The Executive Director of L&T is also expected to join him and us for the site inspection and review sceduled at 2 pm on 21st June. A presentation will also be shown to him. All officers, arcitects and engineers as well as specialist consultants will be present too.
