New plan for Prithviraj Nagar clears first hurdle

DNJAI9766 | 9/3/2009 | Author : DNA Correspondent | WC :397

It will now be sent to the UDH dept for final approval

The new layout plan of the controversial Prithviraj Nagar, prepared by the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), got the initial nod of the Building Plan Committee (layout plan) on Wednesday. The plan will now be sent to the urban development and housing department for final approval.
Following the state government’s approval, the JDA is likely to submit the plan to the Rajasthan high court by September 11. The move came following the court action, asking the JDA to file a reply on the status of the plan.
In a meeting held under the chairmanship of JDA commissioner Sudhansh Pant, all plans related to the scheme were approved after conducting the plain table survey. The plan includes present constructions in the area and all projects needed in future on the basis of population.
As per sources, major changes have been introduced for the south side of the area in the new plan. The roads in the north have not been touched in the plan due to the dense population and construction present in the area. The width of the roads has been reduced in a few places, while some of the streets have been upgraded, said an official.
In September 2008, the high court had asked the JDA to submit the plan, including constructions and vacant land. However, the civic body has been seeking more time for the purpose. The court had earlier given its nod to the state government to develop a residential area in 11,000 bigha of land at Prithviraj Nagar. The HC had taken a suo motu cognisance in the matter in 2002 and since than the issue is hanging fire. During this period, hundreds of houses came up illegally in the locality and the civic body authorities were alleged to have endorsed land mafia in the area.
change in plan
The new plan has been prepared keeping in mind two to three lakh population.
The empty land has been reserved for different purposes.
The plan also mentions of district centre, public toilets, open spaces, and rehabilitation plans for people whose houses are coming in the way of the proposed roads.
But, the issue of regularisation of colonies in the area has still not been cleared. The state government will decide on the issue and decide about regularisation fee.

Park and open space - 53.69
District centre - 75.39
