onslaught on the NDA over amendments to the land acquisition Act the Congress may find it hard to justify how some states it ruled had urged the government to bring changes in the Act last year On June 27 then rural development minister Nitin Gadkari held a meeting of states for their views on changes needed According to ministry documents the most crucial proposal — of removing the consent clause from PPP projects or bringing it down 50 per cent — was pushed by Haryana (then Congress-ruled) and Kerala (ruled by Congress-led UDF) besides some other states “Under PPP projects ownership of lands vests with the government Therefore the consent requirement should be done away with or it should be brought down to 50 per cent” Haryana’s suggestion read Kerala suggested “Obtaining consent of landowners prior to preliminary notification is a herculean task as the identification of landowners at such initial stages may pose a problem” The ministry’s suggestions based on the meeting were sent to the Prime Minister and were phrased largely as per the demands expressed by Congress-ruled states Assam Himachal Pradesh and Haryana (now under a BJP government) said the scope of the definition of affected family was too broad Assam and Maharashtra (then under a Congress-NCP regime) opposed the retrospective clause too The former said it needed modification and the latter said it needed clarity so that any ongoing acquisition process under the old Act is “protected” while compensation is given as per the new Act On social impact assessment Karnataka Kerala Maharashtra and Manipur (all then Congress-ruled) demanded the process be restricted to large projects Kerala which felt the “urgency clause” was too restrictive also demanded states be “allowed to frame state-specific Acts regarding land acquisition” Manipur said the 1894 Act should continue The concerns also shared by some BJP-ruled states were sent to the PM in July “The consent clause should be removed from PPP projects Alternatively consent requirement may be brought down to 50 percent” the ministry suggested while also proposing doing away with the SIA study and confining it to large or PPP projects The ministry’s justification for amending the retrospective clause was that because of this clause payment of compensation as per the new Act leads to an “increased burden on state exchequer” and to litigation It suggested narrowing the scope of people eligible to receive rehabilitation and resettlement benefits In 2011 then Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan had written to UPA’s

Quadrilateral programme under Phase — I of the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) Related News In what can be seen as early indications of revival of foreign participation in Indian highway development projects Malaysian contractors have expressed interest in developing the Delhi-Meerut Expressway (DME) the first project which has been identified by the government to be bid out on the its newly conceived hybrid annuity model (HAM) “We are rolling out the new hybrid annuity model for awarding the contract for developing the Delhi-Meerut Expressway This model has been designed to give comfort to the private concessionaire to lend from banks It will off-set risks associated with traffic They (Malaysian investors) are keen to invest under this mode and have already purchased the bid documents for the project” said a senior official in the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) who did not wish to be identified The last date of submission of the bid is 15 September 2015 Share This Article Related Article The government kicked off efforts to woo Malaysian contractors who have been among the earliest investors in the roads sector in India with a roadshow in Kuala Lumpur earlier in April this year Malaysian companies such as RBM-PATI (JV) CIDBI Malaysia GMR-Tuni-Ankapalli Express Limited (Indian-Malaysian JV) Madhucon Projects Ltd-Binapuri (Indian-Malaysian JV) IJM-Gayatri (Malaysian-Indian JV) HO-HUP-Simplex (Malaysian-Indian JV) had substantially invested in the Golden Quadrilateral programme under Phase — I of the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) But investments since have petered out due to regulatory hurdles and weak economic sentiments Bids for the Delhi-Meerut Expressway will be awarded in three packages — a 275 km stretch on NH-24 (from Nizamuddin Bridge to Dasna) the 49346 km stretch of the Hapur Bypass and the third portion covering a 836 km stretch from Delhi to Uttar Pradesh border — on hybrid annuity mode The estimated cost of the project is Rs 66360 crore The 14-lane road on NH-24 from Nizamuddin Bridge to Dasna is expected to ease massive congestion on the stretch The six lanes in the center of the Nizamuddin Bridge-Dasna stretch will be an “expressway” with limited entry and exits for seamless movement of long-haul traffic The other eight lanes—four on each side—would be a normal highway and commuters won’t have to pay for using these lanes The 22-km stretch of the Dasna-Hapur portion of the highway would be widened to six lanes NHAI has invited both technical and financial bids simultaneously with the target to award the project by October The project will be implemented on “hybrid annuity” model where government takes all the risk including the traffic growth Since in this model developers are assured of getting back their investment there is hardly any doubt of the works not attracting bids from private players The hybrid annuity model was conceived in the last financial year to bring back private participation in highway projects which has dried up in the last few years Under this model the government would provide 40 per cent of the project cost to the developer to start work The remaining investment will have to be made by the contractor The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will collect toll and refund the amount in installments over a period of 15-20 years cutting down on upfront investment required to be made by the government Amrit Pandurangi senior director Deloitte India said “The new model aims to take more risks to the public sector and make investments in roads projects more attractive for private players There has been a change in approach since the new government came to power The new risk-sharing structure is expected to bring in more bidders from the private sector whose participation has almost dried up both at home and abroad over the last five years” The government has eased regulatory hurdles to draft in private investors and has till date this financial year managed to either award or is in advanced stages of finalising projects totalling about 1000 km worth around Rs 13500 crore on a build operate transfer (BOT-Toll) basis This is in sharp contrast to the 734 km of roads projects valued at Rs 6300 crore that was awarded on this mode in the whole of last financial year Given the response the government is now aiming at awarding about 2000 km of highway development projects on public-private partnership basis out of its total target of 10000 km for the current financial year The remaining projects are to be awarded on engineering procurement construction (EPC) basis and under the newly conceived hybrid annuity model “We have taken several decisions in the last few months to enthuse private interest in roads projects Developers can now take out their entire equity in finished projects to undertake new ones The NHAI has been authorised to loan resources to developers whose projects are stuck due to financial constraints” informed another official For projects awarded on BOT-Toll basis the government has approved the exit policy which allows a developer to move out of a project two years after the completion This has been done to free up the locked capital for further investment in the infrastructure sector For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related News That is
