Government plans PPP privatisation of Megapode Resort in Port Blair

The commencement of the privatisation process for the Megapode Resort in Port Blair, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, through the public-private-partnership (PPP) route, has been announced by the government.

In December, the plan to privatise the Megapode resort, one of the very few resorts in Port Blair, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, providing luxury cottage accommodations, was approved by an Approval Committee in the Ministry of Finance.

The Megapode Resort, situated 4 kms away from the airport amid lush green hills, spans across 7.5 acre of lawns, offering a stunning view of the Bay of Bengal and the Port Blair harbour.

The resort provides 10 sea-facing cottages in three different categories - Bamboo, Nicobari, and Deluxe Nicobari, along with deluxe, semi-deluxe, and standard rooms, each equipped with a private balcony facing the sea.

Named after the endemic scrub fowl known as the Nicobar Megapode, these birds are also referred to as mound-builders or incubator birds due to their construction of the largest nest-mounds of sand for incubating their eggs.

The Andaman & Nicobar Islands Integrated Development Corporation has engaged Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP as the transaction advisor for the sale.

The successful bidder will be granted the rights to operate and manage the resort, as well as to further design and develop the resort.

In a separate development, ANIIDCO has selected KPMG Advisory Services as the transaction advisor for constructing eco-tourism resorts at Long Island, Aves Island, Smith Island, and Shaheed Dweep Island, as per the document.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.
