    Proceedings of the Government of Karnataka

    Sub: Development of New Integrated Townships in the Bangalore
    Metropolitan Region (BMR) - Reg.

    Read.: 1. Letter No. BMRDA/ Sat. Town-01 /2005-06 dated 23.6.2006 of
    the Metropolitan Commissioner, BMRDA.

    2. Proceedings of the meeting held under the chairmanship of
    Hon’ble Chief Minister on 23-9-2006.

    Preamble

    1. In order to preserve and improve the quality of life for the citizens within the Bangalore Metropolitan Area (BMA) and at the same time to cater to needs of the rapidly increasing population, it is felt necessary to take up development of new integrated urban settlements in Bangalore Metropolitan Region (BMR) that would relieve the pressure on BMA and facilitate balanced urban growth. In this context, the Bangalore Metropolitan Region Development Authority (BMRDA) has proposed the following set of major activities to solve these problems in a planned manner:-

    a. Development of a series of “integrated townships” focused on one or more economic activity, providing for complete work-home relationship;

    b. Development of Satellite Towns Ring Road (STRR), Intermediate
    Ring Road (IRR) and the Radial Roads; and

    c. Preparation of Interim Master Plans for the various urbanisable blocks
    in the Metropolitan Region.

    2. For the development of the “new integrated townships”, the BMRDA conducted an inter-departmental survey of the Bangalore Metropolitan Region involving the Departments of Revenue, Industries & Commerce, Ecology & Environment, PWD, Karnataka State Pollution Control Board and the concerned Local Planning Authorities. This led to identification of following five potential locations:-

    [Total area of the Township in Acres given below]

    Location of the Townships ………………….Private……….Govt………Total

    Nandagudi Township………………………..13762 ……..4745…….18507

    Ramanagaram Township……………………3621…….392……..4013

    Bidadi Township,……………………………..6959…….. 2725…….. 9684

    Solur Township……………………………..9661……..2864………12525

    Sathanooru Township……………………...5891……..10341…….16232

    Total………………………………………….. 39894………21067…….60961 ACRES


    The locations and areas for the proposed townships were identified based on the following considerations:

    a. Least displacement to human habitations.

    b. Least disturbance to forests and water bodies.

    c. Least acquisition of valuable agricultural lands.

    d. Lower cost for lands.

    e. Far from existing developed locations.

    f. Good connectivity particularly in the wake of the proposed BMR-Satellite Towns Ring Road, BMR-Intermediate Ring Road and Radial Roads.

    3. Highlights of the Proposed Townships Project

    i. The proposed townships will be independent, self-contained and ecofriendly
    human settlements. They will be based on integrated land use
    concepts, centering around one or more specific economic activity with
    concomitant residential components aimed at promoting work-home
    relationship. Further, it is planned to have connectivity between the
    townships and the proposed BMR Ring Roads as also access to the
    National Highways, State Highways, Railway Stations and the new
    International Airport.

    ii. The townships will be developed with proper infrastructure facilities and
    amenities based on modern technology and environmentally friendly
    concepts. The focus will be towards making them self contained for all
    activities.

    iii. The townships are proposed in the limits of 85 villages having population of about 79,000. In the course of developing the township, it is proposed to integrate these villages in a manner that will ensure conservation of local heritage and also in a manner that is economically and socially viable for the inhabitants. The resource for this will be raised from the revenue generated from the township projects, in conjunction with the
    available funding from developmental programmes of the various
    Government and Non-Government agencies and institutions.

    iv. Project Implementation Period is expected to be 2 years and realisation
    Period, 5 years.

    4. The Executive Committee of BMRDA has deliberated upon the details of the
    Townships Project and has submitted proposal to take up development of the five township projects with the first township at Bidadi.

    The above proposals have been examined and the following orders are issued.

    Government Order No: UDD 97 BMR 2006, Bangalore Dated 18.10.2006

    Government hereby approve the proposals for (i) Development of five
    integrated townships in the Bangalore Metropolitan Region (BMR) by the BMRDA and permit the BMRDA to develop the first Township in Bidadi Hobli as a pilot project. The list of villages proposed for each township is indicated at Annexure-1.

    Government also approve the following guidelines in this regard:

    I. BMRDA Integrated Townships:-

    1. Land Acquisition

    a. The Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) shall
    undertake land acquisition for the BMRDA township projects for and on
    behalf of the BMRDA and shall levy a service charge of 3% [three
    percent only] for handling land acquisition.

    b. The KIADB shall commence the land acquisition proceedings for the
    Bidadi Township project immediately with an initial advance deposit of
    Rs. 5 (five) crore from BMRDA towards land acquisition compensation.
    BMRDA shall extend additional deposit to KIADB soon after securing
    the bid amounts from the selected Private Developer. This Rs. 5 crore
    corpus with KIADB shall be replenished from time to time, depending
    upon the progress of land acquisition and actual payment of
    compensation to farmers.

    c. Given the magnitude of the township projects and ring road projects, it
    appears desirable to bring in suitable amendments to the BMRDA Act,
    1985 for enabling the BMRDA to acquire land for its projects. After
    such amendments come into place, the options of BMRDA undertaking
    direct land acquisition as well as acquisition through the KIADB under
    the provisions of Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Act, 1966
    would be utilised, depending upon the time schedule and administrative
    convenience.

    d. The Government lands in the designated township areas shall be
    transferred to the BMRDA on terms that are consistent with provisions
    of the Land Grant Rules applicable to such cases.

    e. Land would be released to the Private Developer by BMRDA in
    installments, to ensure that the project objectives are achieved in the
    manner envisaged.

    f. Transfer of lands to the Private Partner will be on Lease cum Sale
    basis, and the Lease will be converted into Sale for the parcels of lands
    that are adequately developed in terms of the approved Development
    Plan.

    2. The Bidding Process

    a. The Metropolitan Commissioner, BMRDA is permitted to invite Expression
    of Interest (EOI), Requests for Qualification (RFQ) and Requests for
    Project Proposals (RFP) through an open global tendering process for
    selection of the Private Partner. Selection would be based on technicalcum-
    financial bids. The Private Partner shall invest either on stand alone
    basis or through a consortium.

    b. The selected Private Partner shall be permitted to deposit the bid amount
    with the BMRDA in stages/ installments as may be prescribed by the
    Authority.

    c. The business model proposed is that the private sector developer deposits
    funds with BMRDA towards:

    (i) Developed bulk land cost comprising:

    (a) Land acquisition cost;

    (b) External infrastructure cost; and

    (ii) Regional Development Premium.

    Items (i)a and (i)b shall be common for all bidders whereas item (ii) shall be
    the deciding factor among the technically qualified bidders.

    d. Participation of foreign firms would be subject to the relevant norms/
    regulations relating to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

    3. Town Planning Regulations

    a. The proposed townships shall be declared as “Local Planning Areas
    (LPAs)” and the BMRDA shall be the “Planning Authority” for these LPAs
    under the Karnataka Town & Country Planning Act, 1961. The LPAs
    would prescribe zonal planning guidelines and frame the required
    regulations keeping in view the broad guidelines indicated in Annexure-2.
    The Private Partner would prepare Draft Master Plan for the township in
    accordance with the Regulations and obtain approval from the LPA.
    Developments in the township would be regulated by the LPA in
    accordance with the approved Master Plan.

    b. The Private Partner shall finance and develop the internal infrastructure as
    per the approved Master Plan / Zonal Regulations which will include water
    supply & sanitation, power supply, telecommunication including broadband
    and internal road network within the township. The standards for these
    would be as specified by the BMRDA. The Private Partner shall secure
    firm commitments from agencies such as BWSSB, KUWS & DB etc.
    Likewise, for power requirements, either a captive plant or arrangements
    to draw power from an existing supply system on the basis of a firm
    commitment is required of the developer.
