Ravi River City

Ravi Urban Development Authority (RUDA) intends to develop urban areas of the province into sustainable, livable and well-managed engines of economic growth. Urban development and its management are critically linked with sound, comprehensive and strategic metropolitan level long-term planning. Over the years, rapid urbanization has changed the socio-economic and physical characteristics of the cities. The physical growth of the cities has emerged in a very different way from the land uses proposed in master plans and other such documents.

The Ravi, a transboundary river of India and Pakistan, is an integral part of the Indus River basin and forms the headwaters of the Indus basin. The waters of the Ravi drain into the Indian Ocean through the Indus River in Pakistan. Subsequent to construction of Thein Dam in 2000 upstream of Madhopur headworks in India, surface flow to the Ravi has reduced to negligible level during winter months. Average annual flow between 1985 and 1995 was recorded as 5 MAF and due to irrigation and hydro power diversions in India, the average annual flow between the years 2000-2009 was reduced to 1.1 MAF. The Ravi remains almost dry except the monsoon season.

A substantial quantity of wastewater amalgamation into the Ravi River without treatment is a grave risk to the ecosystem, particularly the ground water source. According to a study, the increasing tendency of contaminants in the river can become more hazardous and may cause severe menace to quality of groundwater in the coming days, which is the potential source of drinking water for Lahore city.

In view of the city’s projected expansion and issues related to water in the Ravi River, Government of the Punjab has planned the Ravi Riverfront Urban Development on both banks of the river alongside a 46 km long stretch that is contiguous to Lahore district’s northern and western boundaries through its authority Ravi Urban Development Authority.

  4. Mega consortium gets rights to develop Ravi River City Phase-1 Sapphire Bay

    LAHORE: A mega consortium of more than 10 firms led by a known group of companies has succeeded in getting development rights of the phase-1 (Sapphire Bay) of the country’s first mega riverfront development venture in Lahore — Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project worth billions of dollars.

    According to RUDA chief, as many as eight groups/companies were pre-qualified for submitting their technical bids for the project. Of eight, he said, four qualified technically and they were asked to submit their bids. Out of four, three—including one (Javedan consortium) owned by Arif Habib Group of Companies—submitted bids.

    “Of three, Javedan’s financial bid was more than the other bidders–Bahria Town and Metracon,” Ameen added.

    It is pertinent to mention that Javedan Corporation, a lead partner of the Javedan consortium, is a subsidiary of the Arif Habib Group of Companies. And the name of Mr Arif Habib was mentioned on top in an official notification as member of the Ravi Urban Development Authority.

    “In exercise of the powers conferred under section 4 (4) of the RUDA ordinance 2020, the Punjab government is pleased to appoint Mr Arif Habib (Arif Habib Group), Mr Aqeel Ahmad Dhedhi (AKD Group), Mr Iftikhar Ali Malik (Guard Group of Companies), Planning and Development Board Chairman, Housing Department Secretary, Mr Javed Salim Qureshi (Pakistan Engineering Council Chairman) and Mr Kalim Ahmad Siddiqui (Pakistan Council for Architects & Town Planners) as members of the authority for a period of three years,” reads a notification issued on August 6 last year by the Punjab government.

    However, after one month or so of the issuance of notification, Mr Habib resigned from the membership so as to avert any controversy or any conflict of interest.

    “He (Mr Habib) had resigned last year—probably a month or so after notification’s issuance,” the RUDA CEO clarified. “And since he is no more member of the authority, there is no conflict of interest in this regard,” he said.

    He said under the business development model, the bidders were required to offer percentage of developed residential and commercial plots and money to RUDA against the land they would be getting for development and contribution in the development of river channelization, construction of barrages, river’ training, roads, infrastructure etc. “But I cannot tell you the bidders’ offers exactly right now since we will announce this by Tuesday,” he maintained. “Everything related to the bidding process was done in a very transparent manner by following PPRA rules and other regulations,” the RUDA head claimed.

    On the other hand, an official source in the Punjab government told Dawn that bidding process was based on single stage-three envelope (pre-qualification and technical and financial evaluations). “The successful bidder offered 15 percent each of the total developed residential and commercial plots, cost of raw land and financial contribution in developing the mega infrastructure — three barrages for river revival and channelization, roads, wastewater treatment plant etc,” the official explained.

    He said the Ravi project part-1 consists of around 44,000 acres that includes 5,000 acres river’s land. Of the remaining 39,000 acres, the government initially wants development of 2,000 acres of the riverfront project.
