Haryana has earmarked Rs 716.76 crore for projects to be funded jointly by the National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) under the ministry of urban development and the state in the current financial year for development of areas around New Delhi.

The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Haryana chief secretary Urvashi Gulati.

As a large portion of the state's area is under NCR, these projects would further accelerate the pace of development in the area, a release said.

Out of Rs 716.76 crore, Rs 225 crore has been earmarked for public health, Rs 40 crore for the public works (building and roads) department, Rs 20 crore for technical education and Rs 71.76 crore for medical education and research. The projects would be funded in the ratio of 75:25 by NCRPB and the Haryana government.
