Delhi firm to draft development plan under JLNNURM

CONSTRUCTION OF eight-lane roads has been proposed for the city instead of six-lane roads, with the two lanes planned for plying buses, under the Jawahar Lal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JLNNURM) project.

This was stated by additional municipal commissioner Uday Narain Tiwari at a press conference jointly addressed by municipal commissioner Arvind Singh, here on Monday.

Talking about the city development project under the JLNNURM, Singh said the State government had appointed JPS Associates, New Delhi, to draft the City Development Plan (CDP) and the first meeting with the firm was scheduled to be held on April 20 to discuss the needs of the city.

Singh said that after the meeting of April 20, another meeting would be held with the divisional commissioner, which was also expected to be attended by other senior officials of the State government.

He said the Union government had selected 29 firms to draft the CDP. A list comprising the names of the firms was sent to the State government which selected JPS Associates. The municipal commissioner said that the firm would be paid Rs 9.5 lakh as fees for drafting the CDP.

He also said that the fee would be paid by the State government and added a token amount of Rs 25,000 had already been given to them.

The municipal commissioner said a CD of a model CDP had also been sent by the State government to the Kanpur Municipal Corporation. He also said a seminar sponsored by the Union government on JLNNURM was held at Hyderabad on April 8 and 9.

He said from the Kanpur Municipal Corporation, additional municipal commissioner Uday Narain Tiwari who is also the nodal officer of the project had attended the seminar.

Tiwari said that as per the JLNNURM, private participation in various sectors would be taken into consideration. Citing an example, Tiwari said it had been made mandatory under the JLNNURM to invite private parties to develop parking lots in the city. Tiwari said that help of private parties would be sought for maintenance and other activities related to parking lots.
