Bullish Finances

In the meeting of Board of Directors of Hidco held today, it was decided that fresh Expression of Interest would be invited for plots in Financial Hub in New Town. There are 23 such plots of varying sizes that will be put up on the EoI. Only Financial Institutions can apply. Earlier, 10 such Financial Institutions have taken up / are in the process of taking up plots in the Financial Hub. These are: NIC, WBFC, UCO, UBI, WBIDFC, Union Bank, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, Corporation Bank and Sriram Capital. In addition, Allahabad Bank had taken a plot earlier in this area. The Notices are expected to be published by next week.The last date of application will be 26th August 2014.

Meanwhile, a model of a bull is being installed on the Major Arterial Road opposite Finance Centre Building and near Gate 2 of Eco Park. I had seen a somewhat similar model near the New York Stock Exchange at Wall Street which is a great tourist interest especially for photos. Here is a photo that I took yesterday of the installation process whose engineering is being done by NKDA:

Here is a clipping from today's Khabar 365:


  1. Sorry to say it does not look at all like an Indian Bull. The Indian bull has a very prominent hump which is totally absent on this model. Anyway, will provide a nice photo-op, to be sure.

  2. I feel Bull should not be along the MAR but at some important crossing or in front of or along the way for some cluster of financial buildings.
    Also this may scare fast moving drivers at night.
