I think the ncrpb loan is recent decision and the mcd
civic centre pre-dates the duac res. mcd reportedly
put in a tender in wall street journal in 2003 and the
Malaysian firm might be doing design-n-build turnkey
and for design part Architects Act used to require
Indian partner. I am generally curious about the civic
centre, mcd's first biggie after the byelaw business
that promises to set standards also for professional
practice (I suspect in post-GATS scenario). I cannot
find any info about it on mcd website (which does have
list of 38 PIOs and 86 APIOs and 8 appellate officers
and for each deptt a doc file with what one could call
the 17 manuals for RTI).

DUAC clearance not required now that plot size has

be 20+Ha and height 26+m and ROW has to be 200 feet
or
something vide their new resolution. Anyway DUAC has
no enforcement powers and can only complain to
Parliament vide their annual report. Of course
Foreign
Firms can handle construction projects in India, and
where does Architect's Act enter the picture? Funny
the 250 Cr loan does not show up in NCRPB's budget
under RTI ACT 2005 on their website. Wonder what
sort
of credit rating was done for poor bankrupt MCD
(which
doesnt pay their staff salaries for 6 months at a
time) to give them the said loan.

Govt gets ready to sell Civic Centre space

New Delhi, October 28: The Municipal Corporation

of

Delhi (MCD) will soon appoint an agent to sell or
lease out 46,377.5 square metre of commercial

space

in
the upcoming civic-centre for the construction of
the
28-floor building. One half of the building will

be

used to house all the offices of the MCD while the
other will be commercial. Malaysian firm IJM,

which

is
handling the construction, has given a time of

three

years for completing the building. Construction
started on May 5. ... ... While many other
organisations, including the Delhi Urban Arts
Commission, have recently opposed the civic centre
for
its height and design, Mehta said the MCD is
sticking
to its guns
