WE WILL ANALYSE THE STATUE OF UNITY IN THE FOLLOWING ASPECTS -

1. ECONOMICAL –

THE COST OF MAKING STATUE OF UNITY IS  3000 CR. APPROX WHICH IS 180 MILLION $ AND THE COST OF ONLY THE STATUE IS 1350 CR. APPROX.  IN COMPARISON TO THE 2ND WORLD LARGEST STATUE THAT IS SPRING TEMPLE BUDDHA IS ALMOST 128M IN HEIGHT AND THE FULL COST WHICH INCURRED IN THAT PROJECT WAS 55 MILLION $ AND THE COST OF THE STATUE WAS 18 MILLION$. THE CONSTRUCTION TAKES PLACE FROM 1997-2008.  SO APPROX 10 YEARS PASSED AWAY. INDIA INCURRED 10x IN THE COST ON THESE PROJECT WHICH IS VERY HIGH AS COMPARED TO THE INFLATION RATE.

 2. TAJ MAHAL-

ATTRACT 7-8 MILLION ON YEARLY BASIS  IN WHICH 10% ARE FOREIGNERS, THE TICKET PRICE FOR INDIANS ARE – RS. 45 FOR SAARC COUNTRIES RS-530 AND FOR OTHER COUNTRIES RS-1050. SO IF WE ASSUME THAT AMONG 8 MILLION PEOPLE 7.2 MILLION  ARE  INDIANS  AND THE REST 0.8 MILLION ARE FOREIGNERS IT WILL GENERATES 32 CR + 80CR = 112CR YEARLY. THE OFFICIAL SOURCES ARE EXPECTING 15000 VISITORS DAILY AS IT IS DOUBLE THE HEIGHT OF STATUE OF LIBERTY. IT IS MORE LIKELY TO BE POPULAR SOON.

TAKING IN MIND 15000 DAILY VISITORS WHICH WILL GIVE AROUND 5.5 MILLION YEARLY VISITORS. THE TICKET PRICE FOR ADULT IS RS.120 FOR KIDS 60 AND IF YOU WANT TO WATCH IT FROM THE OBSERVATION DESK IT WILL COST YOU RS. 350. WHICH I PERSONALLY THINK VERY FEW VISITORS WILL GO TO WATCH  FROM IT.  SO IF WE ASSUME THAT FROM 5.5 MILLION 90% ARE ADULTS AND GO FOR RS 120 TICKET AND THE REST FOR OBSERVATION DESK IT WILL GENERATES APPROX 59 CR (RS 120)+ 19 CR (RS 350) TO BREAK EVEN THES COST GOVERNMENT WILL TAKE 38 YEARS EXCLUDING THE MAINTENANCE COST. SO YOU DECIDE WHETHER IT IS A GOOD DEAL OR NOT?

3. LOCATION –

ALL THE GREAT WONDERS OF WORLD OR FAMOUS MONUMENTS ARE SITUATED NEAR A BIG CITY LIKE  – STATUE OF LIBERTY IN NEWYORK, EIFFEL TOWER IN PARIS BUT IN STATUE OF UNITY CASE IT IS FAR DISTANCE FROM BIG CITY IT IS  200KM IN DISTANCE FROM AHMEDABAD. SO IT WILL CREATE A TRANSPORTATION BARRIER FOR VISITORS. WHICH WILL HAD A GREAT IMPACT IN LONGER TERM.

4.EMPLOYMENT –

SO MANY OF YOU WILL SAY THAT BY STATUE OF UNITY MANY PEOPLE WILL GET EMPLOYMENT LIKE TAXI DRIVERS, HOTELS, SMALL SHOPS, RESTAURANTS ETC. BUT  INVESTING 3000CR FOR EMPLOYMENT OF SOME THOUSAND PEOPLE SOUNDS STRANGE WITH 3000CR MANY START-UP CAN BE FUNDED SO THAT IT WILL ARISE MORE JOBS OR EMPLOYMENT.

5. SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES –

DO YOU KNOW MANY VILLAGERS AND TRIBALS PEOPLE HAD LOST THERE HOMES AND FARMS JUST FOR THE STATUE. IN A WAY OF PROTEST THEY DECLARED NO  COOKING FOOD FOR A DAY AS  PROTEST . 122 VILLAGES HAD WRITTEN A LETTER TO PM TO STOP THESE PROJECT BUT IT WAS OF NO USE. THE MAN WHO GIVE HIS LIFE TO HELP OTHERS HIS STATUE IS  ONLY CREATING PROBLEM FOR OTHERS.

NOTE :

POLITICAL STUNT –  MANY POLITICAL LEADERS USE TO PLAY THESE STATUE GAME IN ORDER TO INCREASE THERE  VOTE BANK LIKE BHOPAL LAKE BY MAYAWATI JI AND MANY MORE. SARDAR SAROVAR DAM ATTRACT 55000 VISITORS WITHIN THE WEEK OF INAUGURATION SO WE ASSUME THAT THE STATUE OF UNITY WILL BE ALSO POPULAR IN THE WORLD.
