Proposed Expansion of Residential Complex, AVIDIPTA, at Barakhola, E. M.

Bypass, Kolkata Project Report


Developer Bengal Peerless Housing Development Company Ltd.

1.0 INTRODUCTION
To meet the increasing housing demand for the urban population, a number of multi-
storied housing estates are coming up in and around Kolkata Metropolitan Area. Also,
the housing scenario of the Kolkata City itself has become saturated and beyond the
affordability for the middle-income group people of the society. Side by side, people
are getting tired out of rapidly changing living environment and increasing pollution in
the Kolkata City. Therefore, due to above factors, an outward force is observed to
become active for these people to settle their livelihood in the outskirts town of Kolkata.
Bengal Peerless Housing Development Company Ltd., being one of the pioneers in the
field of real estate development, has already taken initiatives for the developments of
such type of Housing Complexes in the region. Residential Complex at Barakhola,
E.M.Bypass, near Mukundapur is one of them. Phase I of this complex has already
received the Environmental Clearance from SEIAA, West Bengal and construction is in
progress. The developer has now proposed to modify and expand the project further
by constructing another four residential towers in addition to the ongoing fifteen
residential blocks and two community blocks.

2.0 NEED FOR THE PROPOSAL


Mukundapur, in recent years, has got a major importance from locational point of
view. The project is abutting E.M. Bypass and closed to Bagha Jatin Railway Station,
one of the prominent station of south section of Eastern Railway. The area has a strong
linkage with various prominent nodes of Kolkata such as Ultadanga, Salt Lake,
Gariahat, Ballygunge, Topsia, Park circus etc. Moreover, the recently completed
project of Metro Railway upto Garia Bazar (Kavi Nazrul) has increased the land value of
the region many times. On the other hand, the comparatively less polluted
environment with plenty of greeneries and plantations in the region has been attracting
people from the surrounding areas as well as from the Kolkata City itself. Accordingly,
the housing demand has gone high. To cater for this demand, Bengal Peerless Housing
Development Company Ltd has taken initiatives to construct a housing complex. The
main objectives of the housing complex are:
i) To provide people with a better quality shelter as well as living environment at an
affordable price.
ii) To provide all necessary infrastructure support and community facilities to the
dwellers.
iii) To ensure minimum environmental degradation during the construction and
operational stages and to mitigate the adverse impacts.
iv) To help for the improvement of SocioEconomic environment of surrounding region.

3.0 THE COMPANY BACKGROUND


Problem of Housing for common people is as acute as other problems like food and
cloth being faced by the country since independence. The importance of proper
settlement of people of different sections of the society has been fully acknowledged
by the Government of India in its National Housing Policy declared in May, 1992. In this
policy it has been declared that Government can not alone solve such a vast problem
and it needs the private participation also in solving the acute housing problem of the
Country.
The Government of West Bengal in an effort to combat the problem of Housing formed
Joint Sector Companies with West Bengal Housing Board and Private Entrepreneurs.
Thus, Bengal Peerless Housing Development Company Limited was formed in 1994 with
West Bengal Housing Board and The Peerless General Finance and Investment
Company Limited, both having 49.5% Equity participation.
Bengal Peerless aims to provide business and living space to all sections of society since
we believe that shelter and livelihood are the primary need for every human being and
every individual must be provided with an opportunity to get his own.
Bengal Peerless endeavors to provide space to all while demanding the very least. We
believe in the individuals right to grow and prosper within a hospitable living
environment and commercially viable business space. We offer space, which is
affordable as well as completely secured. Architectural details are given great
consideration, so as not to disturb the serene beauty of the natural landscape.
Fluctuating real estate prices and other external adversities do not compel us to shift
the burden of price escalation upon our allottees. We remain steadfast to our
commitment to provide dwellings and commercial spaces of the highest quality.

6.0 MATERIAL REQUIREMENT FOR CONSTRUCTION


Basic building materials for the construction of the proposed development are Cement,
Sand, Stonechip, Brick and Steel as reinforcement. Though it is too early for estimation
of consumption of building materials in this stage, but a sincere attempt has been
made for preliminary assessment for such consumption; which is presented below:
STEEL :- 5,033 MT.
CEMENT :- 15,502 MT
SAND :- 27,430 CUM.
STONE CHIP :- 27,078 CUM.
BRICKS :- 56,27,632 NOS.

7.0 WATER REQUIREMENT, SOURCE OF SUPPLY, WASTEWATER TREATMENT & DISPOSAL


Water Demand for the proposed expansion (Construction Stage) = 25.0 kLD

a) Domestic Consumption (Phase I) = 800 kLD


Type of User Per capita Water No. of Users Water
Consumption Consumption
Residents 150 lpcd 5212 persons 781.8 kLD
Floating Popn. 15 lpcd 521 persons 7.815 kLD
Service Staff 45 lpcd 200 persons 9.0 kLD
Total 5933 persons 798.615 i.e 800 kLD

Domestic Consumption (Phase II) = 455 kLD


Type of User Per capita Water No. of Users Water
Consumption Consumption
Residents 150 lpcd 2976 persons 446.4 kLD
Floating Popn. 15 lpcd 298 persons 4.47 kLD
Service Staff 45 lpcd 100 persons 4.5 kLD
Total 3374 persons 455.37 i.e 455 kLD
Thus, Domestic Consumption for total project (Phase I + II) = 1255 kLD..(i)
Dual plumbing will be considered for Phase II. Hence, out of 455 kLD, 1/3 rd volume i.e.
152 kLD will be consumed for toilet flushing, where treated wastewater will be used. Thus,
required freshwater for the total project will be at the tune of [800 + (455 152) kLD] =
1103 kLD.
b) Water Reqd. for Car Cleaning = 19.00 kLD .(ii)
Car Parks provided in Phase I = 765

Consultant : CENTRE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT Page: 5 of 8


Proposed Expansion of Residential Complex, AVIDIPTA, at Barakhola, E. M. Bypass, Kolkata Project Report
Developer Bengal Peerless Housing Development Company Ltd.

Considering 75% of the cars to be cleaned in a day, water required for car cleaning =
765 X 20 litres/car X 75% = 11.5 say 12 kLD
Additional Car Parks provided in Phase II = 466
Considering 75% of the cars to be cleaned in a day, water required for car cleaning =
466 X 20 litres/car X 75% = 6.99 kLD say 7 kLD
Hence, total water for car cleaning required for the entire project = (12 + 7) kLD = 19 kLD

c) Water consumption for landscaping = 113.00 kLD(iii)


Landscaping Water Requirement for Phase I (Existing Phase)
Plot Area = 51,273.24 sq.m i.e.5.13 Ha
Considering 20% of the plot area to be as green surface covered by trees etc.;
Area under green cover is 20% of 5.13 Ha i.e. 1.026 Ha
Assuming 700 trees per Ha, required trees within site is 1.026X 700 = 718.2 say 718.
Existing nos. of trees = 40, all of which will be retained
Proposed no. of trees = 680
Total no. of trees = (40 + 680) = 720
Considering water consumption as 70 litres/tree (based on the evapo-transpiration rate
as 6mm on average, irrigation efficiency as 85% and plant factor as 0.4)
Water consumption by the trees is 720 X 70 litres = 50.4 kLD.
Assuming water requirement for maintenance of semi paved area to be 5 lit/sq.m,
water required will be (11,812.50 x 5) = 59.06 say 59 kLD
Thus, landscaping water requirement is (50.4 + 59) = 109.4 say 109 kLD.

Total Landscaping Water Requirement (Phase I + II)


Plot Area = 51,273.24 sq.m i.e.5.13 Ha
Considering 20% of the plot area to be as green surface covered by trees etc.;
Area under green cover is 20% of 5.13 Ha i.e. 1.026 Ha
Assuming 700 trees per Ha, required trees within site is 1.026X 700 = 718.2 say 718.
Existing nos. of trees = 40, all of which will be retained
Proposed no. of trees = 680
Total no. of trees = (40 + 680) = 720
Considering water consumption as 70 litres/tree (based on the evapo-transpiration rate
as 6mm on average, irrigation efficiency as 85% and plant factor as 0.4)
Water consumption by the trees is 720 X 70 litres = 50.4 kLD.
Assuming water requirement for maintenance of semi paved area to be
5 lit/sq.m, water required will be (12,629.50 x 5) = 63.15 say 63 kLD
Hence, Landscaping Water Requirement for total project = (50.4 + 63) kLD = 113.4 say
113 kLD.

d) Water Reqd. for internal road cleaning = 13.00 kLD(iv)


In Phase I, area of internal roads is 6000 sq.m.
Considering water consumption as 150 litre/100 sq.m, water requirement for road
cleaning = 6000 sq.m X 150/100 = 9000 litre/day or 9.0 kLD.
In Phase II, additional surface area for internal roads is 2,464.92 sq.m
Considering water consumption as 150 litre/100 sq.m, additional water requirement for
Phase II will be (2,464.92 X 150/100) litres/day = 3.7 kLD, say 4 kLD.
Hence, Internal Road Cleaning Water Requirement for total project = (9 + 4) kLD = 13
kLD

e) Water Requirement for Fire Fighting


Static water demand for fire fighting purpose will be according to the fire departments
recommendation. In this case, two underground water reservoirs of total capacity 300
kLD will be provided for satisfying the requirement of Phase - II. For Phase - I, 500 kLD
capacity fire water reservoir is provided.

Hence, apart from the water required for fire fighting, total water demand of the
residential development during both the phases will be as follows:

Activity Phase I (Existing) Phase II (Proposed) Sub Total


Domestic 800 kLD 455 kLD 1255 kLD
Car Cleaning 12 kLD 7 kLD 19 kLD
Internal Road Cleaning 9 kLD 4 kLD 13 kLD
Landscaping 109 kLD 4 kLD 113 kLD
Total 930 kLD 470 kLD 1400 kLD

Total Water Consumption = 1400 kLD


(Water requirement for fire-fighting is not considered as it is a static demand)

SOURCES OF WATER SUPPLY


Probable sources for water supply are from K.M.C. supply, Abstraction of Groundwater,
Treated Wastewater and rooftop rainwater during monsoon.
Wastewater treatment facilities will be provided inside the complex. Sewage Treatment
Plants will be installed inside the complex, where wastewater will be treated and partially
reused. Surplus volume of treated wastewater will be discharged into the roadside drain.
Water Consumption for Domestic Purposes : 1255 kLD
Generated wastewater : 1004 kLD (80% of water consumption)
Treated wastewater from Wastewater Treatment Network : 904 kLD.
Treated wastewater to be reused : 278 kLD
Treated wastewater to be discharged into municipal sewer : (904 278) kLD = 626 kLD.
