Berhampur CDP to comprise of 317 sq. km. – to be ready in six months / Tender for Rourkela CDP

Following is an excerpt from a report in Hindu.

A Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) for greater Berhampur is expected to be ready in next six months.

It was declared by Berhampur Development Authority Chairperson Sarat Ranjan Patnaik at a workshop organised in the city on Saturday to elicit views from corporators and councillors of the local urban bodies under the BDA.

 The technical team that attended the workshop was led by chief planner of the Town and Country Planning Organisation (TCPO), J.B. Khirsagar. The TCPO, which happens to be the technical advisory body of Central Ministry of Urban Development, is preparing the CDP for greater Berhampur.

Mr. Patnaik said earlier the TCPO decided to prepare the master plan in 18 months. But due to requests of the BDA, the TCPO authorities have agreed to expedite the process and complete the process in one year.

He expected the master plan to be ready in another six months.

… The Orissa government is bearing the cost of the CDP preparation, which would cost around Rs. 1.08 crores. Mr. Khirsagar said the TCPO was providing the technical collaboration without taking any consultancy fee.

… The present CDP is being prepared keeping in view the development of greater Berhampur till the year 1931 2031.

The area under greater Berhampur will include the urban centres of Berhampur, Gopalpur and Chatrapur and 139 villages between them.

The CDP will comprise a total area of 317 sq. km. having a population of around 12 lakhs.

Similar CDPs for other areas need to be prepared at the earliest.


A search in the web leads to the call for tenders for CDP for Berhampur area as well as Rourkela area. Some numbers from that document is as follows:

The greater Sambalpur-Jharsuguda area has the potential to become a major metropolitan area of Orissa. The following maps give some idea of this area.

The population numbers from 2001 obtained from this map are as follows:

More up-to-date numbers from the World Gazetteer is as follows:

Some of the recent notable developments of this area are:

  • An airport is being developed in Jharsuguda (This needs to be speeded up.)
  • UCE Burla has now become Vir Surendra Sai University of Technology
  • Several major industries are coming up (for example; Vedanta Aluminum in Jharsuguda)
  • There are 6 engineering colleges in the area: 2 in Bargarh, 1 in Jharsuguda, 1 in Sundergarh, VSSUT in Burla and Silicon in Sassan.
  • Sambalpur-Jharsuguda as a whole has excellent Railway connectivity.

However, a more planned approach is needed. In particular, a core metro area consisting of Burla-Sambalpur-Jharsuguda-Belpahar-Brajarajnagar needs to be formally formed and a CDP (Comprehensive Development Plan) must be developed at the earliest. In addition if local participation in developing more private HRD institutions is enhanced and local  handing of industrialization is done in a smarter way (not just blind knee-jerk opposition) then that will propel this area to a Tier II metro area of India.

(A draft of the Bhubaneswar part of the CDP is at http://www.orissalinks.com/bigfiles/Draft%20Proposal_CDP%20BDPA-2008/).

Following is an excerpt from a report in Business standard.

The implementation of the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) of Bhubaneswar prepared by the department of architecture and urban planning of IIT-Kharagpur would involve an investment of Rs 31,450 crore on different sectors by 2030.

Out of the total investment of Rs 31,450 crore, the public investment would be Rs 15,000 crore which is to be raised through a specially created fund called Bhubaneswar Cuttack Urban Complex Infrastructure Fund.

The balance requirement would be met through long-term loans, capital finance through devolution of funds, user charges and improved collection of taxes.

KC Satpathy, planning member, Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) said, “Out of the total investment of Rs 31,450 crore for the CDP, the amount spent on traffic and transportation would be Rs 9,990 crore while Rs 7,500 crore would be invested in building 4.31 lakh dwelling units spread over 9,286 acres by 2030.”

The draft CDP of Bhubaneswar is expected to be finalised by the end of October this year, he added. It may be noted that the last CDP for Bhubaneswar was prepared in 1994.

…  Speaking on the occasion, Vishal Dev, commissioner, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) said, “There is scope for developing projects like affordable housing, city transportation, solid waste management and preservation of heritage structures on the public private partnership mode.”

The traffic and transportation plan of the CDP includes among other things the construction of a regional rail passenger terminal facility near Barang at a cost of Rs 400 crore and the setting up of a regional bus passenger terminal facility near Barang at an investment of Rs 100 crore.

Besides, Rs 250 crore would be invested in construction of a multi-modal logistic hub at Jatni while a wholesale trading and truck terminal facility would be set up near Pahala at a cost of Rs 150 crore.

As per the CDP, 4.31 dwelling units would be built in areas like Chandrasekharpur, east Kuakhai, Aigania, Tamando, Gangapada, Bhubaneswar New Town, Khurda and Jatni to help accommodate the projected population of 30 lakh in and around the city by 2030.

The CDP says that the water requirement would reach 88 million gallons per day by 2030 and the plan has envisaged an investment of Rs 1,125 crore to ensure 100 per cent water supply.

The creation of additional social infrastructure facilities including schools, colleges, hospitals, telecommunications facilities, postal services, recreation halls, commercial banks, parks and playgrounds, community halls and electricity substations by 2030 would involve an investment of Rs 3,310 crore.

The CDP has also emphasised on development of tourism projects. According to the CDP, 316 hectares of land in and around the city would be earmarked for various tourism projects at a cost of Rs 580 crore.

Moreover, Rs 300 crore would be invested on preservation and promotion of heritage structures in Bhubaneswar and Khurda.

Following are some excerpts from a report in Hindu.

 

The Berhampur Development Authority (BDA) organised a launching workshop on Saturday on the preparations of Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) for a greater Berhampur. The CDP is to be prepared by the Town and Country Planning Organisation (TCPO), the technical advisory body of Central Ministry of Urban Development. The new master plan would be Geographical Information System (GIS)-based. It would depend on remote sensing data provided by satellites as well as the ground level data collected through surveys. …

The preparation of the CDP would cost around Rs. 1,09,75,000. The State Government, which would bear the cost, has provided Rs. 35.50 lakhs for it in the first phase.

It may be noted that Berhampur, a major trading and cultural centre had its last master plan way back in 1969. This master plan envisioned the urban growth and required basic amenities for a population of over two lakh persons by the year 1986. The present CDP however would provide urban development plan for the area now under the BDA which includes areas of urban bodies like Berhampur, Gopalpur and Chatrapur and 139 villages. This would be part of the greater Berhampur with a vision of development for next 30 years. The CDP would comprise a total area of 317 square km having a population of 5,13,760 persons. It is expected that the CDP would be ready in 18 months.

The Orissa government has already involved itself in preparing the master plan for greater Bhubaneswar area. Now there is news regarding its intention to make master plans for 8 more areas. These areas are: Puri-Konark, Rourkela, Sambalpur, Berhampur, Kalinganagar, Paradeep, Jharsuguda, and Talcher-Angul. The govt. is missing a few other areas which it should take up soon. Those are: Baripada, Balasore, Dahamara, Rayagada-Therubali and Koraput-Jeypore. Following are excerpts from a report in Statesman on Orissa govt.’s recent thoughts on this.

In a bid to give major facelift to the upcoming urban areas of the state and for their integrated development, the government will prepare a master plan, within one and half years. The localities include Rourkela, Sambalpur, Berhampur, Puri-Konark, Talcher-Angul, Paradip, Kalinga Nagar and Jharsuguda. … Mr Patnaik underscored the need of adequately trained personnel to successfully handle the technical problems of under-ground sewerage and solid waste management,…. He also stressed on better sanitation, drinking water, housing and slum development. It may be mentioned here that while Rs 950 crore from the funds of JBIC has been sanctioned for sewerage of Cuttack; the capital city has been allotted Rs 499 crore for the same under Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission. Rs 88 crore has been sanctioned for drinking water in Cuttack, Berhampur and Sambalpur. Rs 3.65 crore has also been allotted for slum development in Bhubaneswar.
