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.

  7. Supreme Court suspends Lahore High Court decision about RUDA

    The Supreme Court suspended the decision of the Lahore High Court on the River Ravi Urban Development Project and allowed the Punjab Government to continue working on the project in part. A three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan and comprising Justice Mazahir Ali Naqvi, heard the Punjab government’s appeals against the Lahore High Court’s decision.

    It may be recalled that the Lahore High Court had declared the acquisition of agricultural land for the Ravi River Front Urban Development Project as unconstitutional and a violation of the fundamental rights of citizens. At the same time, the court had declared several provisions of the Ravi Urban Development Authority (RUDA) Act illegal.

    The court had directed the Ravi Urban Development Authority to repay the loan of Rs 5 billion to the Punjab government in two months, saying that the authority had failed to comply with the rules and the project was started without a master plan. The Punjab government had filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the decision of the Lahore High Court, which was heard today.

  12. Ravi riverfront project: Compensation to landowners has started, claims Ruda

    LAHORE: The government claims to have started implementing the special compensation package for the landowners/affectees of the Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project under the Land Acquisition Act 1894.

    The implementation of the package was started after the government approved it in the light of recommendations of a special committee, respective district administrations (Lahore & Sheikhupura) and the Ravi Urban Development Authority (Ruda), Dawn has learnt.

    “From Saturday, we have started implementing the compensation package prepared specially for the landowners/affectees of the country’s first and biggest urban project. The landowners have started receiving cheques from the respective revenue officials/committees,” Ruda Chief Executive Officer Imran Amin told Dawn on Sunday.

    “The compensation cheques are being given to those whose land falls within jurisdiction the Sapphire Bay (Phase-1), which comprises of around 2,000 acres. The compensation package for the land situated in other phases of the project is not yet prepared since the land acquisition process is yet to begin there,” Mr Amin explained.

    It may be mentioned that the landowners had expressed grave concerns over the compensation package announced earlier and urged the government to make a reasonable package for acquiring their land. Keeping in view the demands, the government had constituted a committee to hear the landowners and give recommendations in a bid to offer good land price.

    According to the package, the government has offered up to Rs3.5m per acre for the land situated in the river bed along with a developed plot measuring from five to seven marla on each acre. Similarly, the package for the land other than the riverbed ones ranges from Rs5m to Rs7/8m along with a 10 marla developed plot (per acre). Likewise, the compensation for the crops, outhouses, rooms, infrastructure etc is separate.

    “The cost of a developed plot (per marla) has been estimated as Rs500,000. And if we calculate the total compensation package (per acre), it appears to be more than Rs5m (per acre) for the riverbed land and Rs9/10m (per acre) for the other land. So I think it is the best-ever package for the land the government is acquiring for this project,” Mr Amin claimed, requesting the landowners to keep away from those propagating against a project that would reduce the massively increasing urban pressure on the existing city of Lahore.

    The project’s urban design consists of three phases– Phase-I is spread over around 45,000 acres, Phase-II on around 34,000 acres and Phase-III on around 24,000 acres. Twelve cities have been proposed in different phases that include Medical City, Residential City, Government and Finance City, Innovation City, Knowledge City, Mix Use, Sports City, Tourism and Entertainment, Eco City, Commercial, Urban Farms and Downtown. The project has been divided in various zones called Mix Use Residential, Mix Use Commercial, Mid Rise Residential, Technology City, Residential (Single family units), Mix-use, Central Commercial Park, Financial, Residential High-rise, Forests etc.

    The Ravi project stretches over a length of approximately 46km. The river, under the plan, shall be channelised in three phases. One barrage is proposed to be provided at the end of each phase of total three phases to maintain water level in the channel. Additionally, islands shall be provided in each phase. The additional water, required to develop Ravi into a perennial fresh water body would be diverted from Marala Barrage into Upper Chenab Canal (UCC) and then into BRBD Canal. Since the essence of project is the revitalisation of the Ravi river, it is claimed to be supportive to the ecological system to thrive back naturally and uplift the adjourning areas socially and economically. The authorities claim that they project will also rehabilitate the Ravi river into perennial fresh body and additional benefits of treating whole city’s existing wastewater. The implementation of the project has reportedly many benefits in terms of social, environmental and economic enhancement.

  13. 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.
