Indian Government will build 4000 houses for plantation workers

The construction of 4,000 housing units for needy families in the Plantation Sector, sponsored by the Indian Government, is slated to begin in March, Estate Infrastructure Development Minister P. Digambaram said.

The minister said the construction of the houses for estate workers in the Central Province and Badulla district will be flagged off next month possibly by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself during a likely official visit to Sri Lanka.

The 4,000 houses is part of a 50,000 housing project implemented by the Indian Government for the former conflict affected people in the North and East Provinces and needy families working in the estate sector in the Central Province and Badulla district. With a commitment of over US$ 270 million in grants, it is the flagship project of India’s developmental assistance to Sri Lanka. It is perhaps the largest such project undertaken by India anywhere in the world.

Minister Digambaram said around 35,000 houses in the North and East under this project has been already constructed, it was yet to get off ground in the estate sector. The minister also said the delay in implementing the project in the plantation areas was partly due to the inefficiency of the political authority who earlier held sway in the upcountry plantation areas.

The minister said soon after he had assumed office, he had taken steps to hold talks with the relevant officials to speed up the building of houses for needy people in the estate sector.

He said choosing housing recipients will be done in a very transparent manner which ensures that there are no discrimination due to political or other factors.

Shipping and Air travels are plans to Commence between India to South India

Plans are underway to have shipping and an air link between in India and Jaffna soon said Consul General of India in Jaffna, V. Mahalingam stated in Jaffna International Trade Fair 2014.

These two important links could improve people-to-people contacts and substantially improve trade and economic relations, and he stated that “We look forward to a ferry service between Talaimannar and Rameswaram. These two happening at an early date which will give a great boost to economic development of Northern Sri Lanka.”

“These kind of international fairs are important to showcase the various strengths of the country while air and sea links would have a far greater reach to the common people and encourage in developing better relationship with each other.”

Efforts to complete the infrastructure around the Atchuvely Industrial Zone to encourage the entrepreneurs of Northern Province to set up their units at the Industrial estate will be completed by end January 2014

“Since the operationalization of the India – Sri Lanka Free Trade Agreement (FTA) in 2000, trade alone has multiplied by as much as 8 times, crossing the milestone of USS 5 billion in 2011-12. The FTA has thus proved to be a real engine of growth for bilateral Commercial interaction.”

In 2011-12, India’s imports from Sri Lanka went up by almost 45% to cross USS 720 million, making Sri Lanka the largest source of merchandise from the South Asian region for India. This is a big jump from USS 45 million imports in 2000-01, when Sri Lanka occupied the fourth rank as an import source for India in the region. There is no doubt that the FTA brought significant benefits to both sides.

“As against global two way trade of US $ 30 billion with Sri Lanka in 2011, the overall trade has come down to US$24.5 billion in 2013.I am confident as the world economy picks up, India Sri Lanka trade also will continue to grow.”

India become Visit Visa Country for 180 Countries around the world

Tourists travelling to India from 180 countries will no longer have to queue at their local consulates to obtain visas; most foreigners currently have to wait several weeks before learning whether they will be allowed to enter India after submitting their applications at visa processing centres, a major deterrent for potential visitors.

Under the new scheme, many tourists will be allowed to apply online and then receive the green light within five days, before picking up their visa at the airport on arrival into India.

Visitors from countries which account for the bulk of India’s tourists – such as the United States, Britain and France – that have had to go through the time consuming process of applying in person will be among those to benefit from the changes to regulations.
