Where have all the land alloted to Multinational ITeS companies for IT parks gone
The very first allotment of 1 acres of prime land on ShahastraDhara road in Dehradun was made to Florida based Multinational ASTRA BUSINESS SERVICES at a throw away price on with a big public function by big announcements by the then CM Shri N D Tiwari( Plot no 21 ). They announced a job for 1000 locals and informed that they had already recruited 250 persons.
Now read the list of current users of the plot.http://www.siidcul.com/Portals/0/attachments/LOA_ITPARK.pdf
Plot no 21 is not with ASTRA but one S M Professionals and used as a accounts training centre. most of the space is rented.
How did Astra change to S M professional ? Very funny? S M Professional Services is a chartered account firm of a couple MUKUL AGARWAL and SHAFALI AGARWAL based out of Vasant Vihar. Mukul Agarwal was the CFO of the company Astra at the time of allotment in 2006 and wife Shafali is the current CFO. See them in Linkedin. How did this happen?
Now Mukul Agarwal is Director of DASSAULT SYSTEMES in India.
The mystery of vanishing ITeS company replaced by
commercial hub. And then we keep acquiring farmers land in name of development. more
without taking any bribe and devoted to duty with full heart. So for the
sake of God pardon them to call all corrupt. This will heart them and they
will start corruption. more
more may be, but not most or all. Some demand bribe, some harass people
for offering bribe, some do job but not deny the bribe and a very little
will do the job and deny the bribe who are the back bone of complete system. more
Most roads are necessarily used by pedestrians, since the walkways are either occupied by hawkers, garbage dumps/filth, private gardens, private business, etc. etc. Driving becomes hazardous and prone to accidents.
Even within local markets, the shopkeepers dump their wares/products on the walkways, making them so narrow that in case of fire chaos and stampedes become a reality. Yet no action by Fire service personnel, why?
No political party, including the TMC in West Bengal, will think of initiating this change, because this itself is a huge task and badly affects their vote bank. more
