We have also started thinking about operations. It has been decided that the Connvention Centre portion will be run, marketed and operated by Hidco on its own, much like the way Vigyan Bhavan in Delhi is operated. The annexed 100-key hotel will however be operated through a PPP mode and a Request for Proposal has already been drawn up and published ( http://wbhidcoltd.com/uploads/tender/Tender_1328.pdf ). The operations will be on a revenue sharing mode.
We are also in the process of face-lifting the canal front adjoining the Convention Centre. A design exercise and survey have already begun.
