Since opening in 2011 it looks like they have run
2 x F1 race meetings
1 x GT1 World championship meeting in December 2012 (Cancelled)
and the Hero Asian Cycling Championships (March 2013)
and later this year they have the F1 race and a WSBK event.
Considering the circuit cost $400m to build, and bearing in mind Mr E's fees, it is hard to see how the place will survive. With F1 tickets going for as little as £30 for the race, the money won't be recouped from ticket sales. Someone is going to need very deep pockets to keep the circuit going.

isn't India is renowned for the rape cases happening there everyday?

we shouldn't be worry about their survival of the circuit but worry about female spectators from the world going there to watch..
