PLANNING more important than PLAN

Initial cost estimate = INR 98.45 Cr. (Plan)

Included cost of civil works of corridor only Land acquisition Utility laying / shifting Relocation of religious structures Stations Buses ITS (AVLS + AFCS + Signalling)

Cost EXTRAs not planned for

EXTRA Costs amounting to INR 300 Cr.

Lack of Strategic Partnerships

Initially Delhi BRT design model followed for Indore However, Delhi BRT turned unsuccessful Ahmedabad BRT introduced proved huge success Decision to change Indore BRT design to Ahmedabad BRT design model

Further additions to cost and timelines Partnerships with BRT experts at the outset would have avoided such time and money losses

Corridor construction was underway Design change involved re-configuring of utility ducts

Technical Expertise Limited

capacity at AICTSL Adequate technical expertise not available with government to provide assistance / guidance to AICTSL External consultation came with a pricetag

Project Publicity

Lot of negative publicity received from press and media

BRTS blamed for any and every traffic incident along BRT corridor by media and experts

National-level committees throw negative light on Indore project

No consultation with AICTSL / IMC

Limited awareness among people and media presents great challenges for BRTS

Partnership Partnership

with EMBARQ India bridged the knowledge gap for the BRT project

BRTs Impact on Urbanisation in Indore New

Malls, Hotels, Hospitals, Corporate Offices etc. have developed since project inception Premium on FAR in commercial buildings presents significant funding generation

Lack of external funding support Funding

commitments from government sources not received Funding from World Bank for ITS project available, but not flexible to suit the changes over time AICTSL had no other streams of revenue to fund excesses

Innovations in alternate funding generation All

land acquisition done using Transfer of Develop Rights (TDR) modelSavings to the tune of INR 250-300 Cr.


rights along entire corridor transferred to AICTSL from IMC Proposed share of Urban Transport Fund (UTF) tax being introduced in Indore Proposed share of Land Value Capture

Increased FAR new building permissions Sale/purchase of property
