At the time of the inauguration, Railway officials had claimed they were confident of transporting 10 lakh units of cars manufactured at automobile industries in Maraimalai Nagar, Irungattukottai and Oragadam to various destinations in the country and to the two ports in Chennai.

JSW Infrastructure to invest additional Rs. 2,000 crore by 2020
JSW Infrastructure Ltd (JSWIL), a 100% subsidiary of Sajjan Jindal led-JSW Group, has drawn up a master plan to develop its Jaigarh Port in Konkan as one of India’s biggest ports that could receive big bulk carriers, LNG, LPG and oil tankers.
“We are developing this port for the future,” Sajjan Jindal, Chairman, JSW Group said. “We are now working to receive the vale max, the largest ever 400,000 tonnes iron ore carrier and also 350,000 tonnes very large crude carriers in the

county. We have already done the master planning.”
He was in Jaigarh in the Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra on the occasion of the dedication ceremony of the port for the service of the nation.
Road connectivity
The operations of Jaigarh Port started in 2009 and now JSW Infrastructure has linked this port with road connectivity and a rail line will come up in a few years.
JSW Infrastructure has so far invested Rs. 2,000 crore in this port and an additional Rs. 2,000 crore will be invested by 2020, Mr. Jindal said. “This will be a future proof project and this will have a total investment of Rs. 4,000 crore by 2020.”
The company also operates ports at Dharamtar in Maharashtra and South West Port in Goa.
By 2020 the company has plans to invest a total of Rs. 9,000 crore in all its port projects including the investment that has already been made.
By that time the company will have capacity of over 200 million tonnes.
Share sale plan
Mr. Jindal said that JSW Infrastructure will go for IPO after it achieves operational capacity of 100 million tonnes which is likely in 2019.
“Before that we may go for private placement to the level of between 10% and 15% and after that we will go for IPO,” Mr. Jindal said.
Jaigarh Port is the company’s flagship port. The Jaigarh Digni Railway Line on the Konkan Railway network will enhance connectivity to it the JSW Group in conjunction with Indian railways.
This PPP project will have an investment of Rs. 777 crore.
On completion, this railway line will assist in improving the current connectivity situation wherein the nearest railway link is at Ratnagiri, a distance of 55 km on the Konkan Railway network.
Largest dry bulk parcel
Jaigarh Port also on Saturday achieved the distinction of having received the nation’s largest dry bulk parcel ever at an Indian port.
The bulk cargo vessel ‘MV China Enterprise’ is carrying over 2,00,000 MT Coking Coal from Australia to India. It is the largest dry bulk parcel ever serviced by an Indian Port, making this achievement a significant milestone in India’s maritime history.
Capt B.V.J.K. Sharma, JMD & CEO at JSW Infrastructure Ltd, said: “ While receiving of India’s largest dry bulk parcel is indeed momentous, there is a need to continuously strive towards achieving even greater heights.”
This green-field multi-cargo deep water port in Jaigarh currently has a capacity of 15 MTPA which it is now expanding to 80 MTPA by building additional capability by 2020.
In the near future, Jaigarh Port is getting ready for a giant leap to handle 65 MTPA of cargo and aiming for direct berthing of next generation vessels i.e. largest dry bulk carrier (vale max), Captain Sharma said.
“The vale max calls on only 10 ports across the world. We will be world’s 11 such port and India’s first.” he said.

Raju, Mayor Akula Sujatha, MLC Akula Lalitha, MLAs Bigala Ganesh Gupta, V. Prashanth Reddy and A. Jeevan Reddy, Collector Yogitha Rana were among those who attended.
Senior Divisional Commercial Manager B.D. Christopher and Senior Section Engineer Padma Rao attended from the South Central Railways. Earlier, they all watched on screen the launch of the line and train by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu through with the video link from Secunderabad railway station.
Credit to MP
Atmosphere was charged with emotions for a while as political activists shouted slogans claiming the credit. Sensing trouble the Minister intervened and pacified them saying that the credit goes to all but it could be possible only with the continuous persuasion of Member of Parliament K. Kavitha.
The Minister and other dignitaries boarded the train and went round. After they got down, the train carrying several passengers bound to Karimnagar left the station. According to the railway authorities the train will cover the distance in 3.30 minutes. There are 13 stations between Nizamabad and Peddapalli stations. So far no schedule has been decided by the headquarters and the timings of the train service would be announced as soon as the train schedule was announced, officials said.

Focus on high traffic routes: Minister
Only 16% of the country’s railway networks handle 60% of the traffic in the country, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said and added that doubling up of existing lines was their focus. The Ministry was also implementing these works by speeding up the tendering process, he added.

joint ventures with the State governments.
He said that India has the lowest tax to GDP ratio and forecast that the corporate and indirect taxes might come down with increase in government revenues in the aftermath of demonetization.
Skill training
The Minister felt that state governments should aim for 10% growth so that the country’s GDP also averages more than 10%. He requested the CII members to impart localised skill training in every district for development of the areas and also to address migration issues.
CII president designate Shobhana Kamineni said that in 14 quarters, India had not added new capacities and it was time to take risk and invest in disruptions.
Investment in R&D
President of the CII Naushad Forbes said that Research and Developments (R&D) investments have to grow in technology, higher education and pharmacy as we lagged behind when compared to global average. Mr. Forbes informed that the top 10 software companies in India were investing only 1% of the turnover in R&D whereas top Chinese companies were investing around 8%.
The day-long conference included a number of sessions on the theme and was attended by the industry leaders from various sectors.

Pretending to be their Syrian handler, ahead of bombing of Ujjain-bound train, he helped to secure the arrest of three IS sympathisers
On March 7, the Madhya Pradesh police arrested three men — Danish Akhtar, Syed Mir Hussain and Atif Muzaffar — from Pipariya, around 300 km from Bhopal, for allegedly planting a pipe bomb on the Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train. Nine people were injured in the explosion.
The bomb was planted around 8.30 a.m. at the Bhopal railway station and it exploded around one-and-half-hours later when the train reached the Shajapur station.

on inputs
Within hours, the Madhya Pradesh police announced that the three men, who had planted the bomb in the passenger train, had been arrested on the basis of information provided by Central intelligence agencies.
Four others were arrested from Uttar Pradesh while one man, Saifullah, was killed in an encounter in Thakurganj area of Lucknow the same night.
U.P. ADG Daljit Singh Chaudhary told a news agency a day later that the Telangana police had provided specific intelligence about the whereabouts of the group, who were inspired by the Islamic State. A senior Home Ministry official told The Hindu that the accused were caught within hours as they were being trailed by a Telangana police officer.
The police officer followed the accused from Lucknow when they boarded the Pushpak Express on March 6 and even when they got down at the Bhopal railway station.
“This officer had penetrated the various social media platforms the group used to search for information related to the Islamic State. All of them are self-radicalised and they even made several attempts to go to Syria and even to Kashmir for jihad. When they failed, they decided to do something in India,” the Ministry official said.
Gaining their trust
The Telangana officer gained their trust and pretended to be their Syria-based handler.
The DGP, Telangana, Anurag Sharma, could not be contacted for comment, despite repeated attempts.
“The accused told their handler they wanted to procure explosives and weapons. They downloaded al-Qaeda’s propaganda magazine Inspire and IS’s magazine Dabiq to learn how to prepare the bomb. They made the bomb at the rented house in Lucknow, where Saifullah was killed. On March 7, three of them boarded Pushpak Express from Lucknow and wanted to plant the bomb in it. Seeing the crowd, they dropped the plan and travelled till Bhopal in the Mumbai-bound train,” the official said.
