Babus derail Metro commercial plans
http://www.hindu.com/2005/02/15/stories/2005021511930400.htm
...Though oral orders to the effect were issued by the
Secretary, Anil Baijal, in December, the babus have
been delaying matters as a result of which nearly a
dozen Metro commercial complexes have got held up. The
delay in the approval, despite its sanction from the
Secretary himself, has finally got the goat of the
DMRC Managing Director, E. Sreedharan, who has now
shot off a letter to the Ministry seeking early
compliance of the orders... some vested interests in
the Ministry appear to be on an ego trip which now
threatens to derail the progress of the Delhi Metro
project


//er, dont Mr Baijal & Mr Sreedharan fall in babudom?

//and no one needs to fret about delay in unfettered
property-development derailing our pride project. even
metro Act contemplated only 7% cost recovery by p-d
and i recall reading somewhere this was reduced later
to 3%. dmrc might have spent that much on PR by now.

i suspect the hoopla is esp for the GNCTD-DMRC IT park
on riverbed, whose progress was revied by CM on Dec.1,
which might have led to Mr Baijal's speaking-order.
maybe they are about to start the 2nd block there now.

"babus" sitting on this have at least my respect.
