Kochi SmartCity, much awaited upcoming largest IT Park in India, is a joint undertaking between SmartCity and the Government of Kerala. Kerala Government and Dubai Government are getting ready for a new final agreement on today February 2, 2011 with a discussion between each other in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. This will be a final discussion to salvage the Kochi smart city project which offers over 90,000 direct and indirect jobs. There were a series of various disputes and disagreement to previous framework agreement was going on last seven years. The main barrier that caused postponement of the smartcity Kochi project was the conflicts about the free hold rights for 12 percent land of 30 acres which demanded by Dubai based promoters. But, the latest sources say that Dubai based Tecom Investments has left their demand for having freehold rights on 12 percent land of 29.5 acres which was not ready to agree by Kerala Government. The Dubai Promoters had demanded earlier that the free hold land rights of 12 percent land of 29.5 acres out of Special economic Zone (SEZ). But Kerala Government has rejected this demand of Dubai Based Team. This conflict was really changed the project as slow going scheme. But during the last month discussions Kerala Government official team which includes Chairman of smart city project S. Sharma, Chief Minister V.S. Achuthananthan and M.A. Yousuffali, the Government appointed mediator in the project, could convince that the free hold land cannot give out of SEZ due to Indian Government Law. If this understanding will reflect to a favorable decision for a reality of smart city project, it will be an accomplishment of the state Government and Mediator M.A. Yusuffali who was recently appointed by the state Government to resolve the free hold land rights issues between the Dubai promoters. Kerla hopes the Government will sign the final agreement of Kochi smartcity project on February 2, 2011.
