The Indore Development Authority (IDA) on Friday doled out plans to start development works in Super Corridor.

After resolving long pending demand of water and electricity, IDA has decided to allocate land for setting up a police station and fire brigade station.

IDA chairman Shankar Lalwani said, “The Super Corridor will be developed on the lines of best cities in the country, with all basic amenities.”

He said, "After settling the issues on water and electricity, we have decided to allocate land for police station and fire brigade station."

Lalwani said, "The Sports Authority of India (SAI) will also be allotted land in the Atal sports complex coming up in the Super Corridor, in which SAI will train around 300 sportspersons every year."

Scheme No. 166, the area adjoining the Super corridor, which is designated as Medical Hub, will see a wholesome development apart from hospitals.

IDA chief executing officer Deepak Singh said, "The land designated for medical hub will have hospitals, cineplexes, restaurants, cafeterias, schools, convention centers, colleges, guest houses, clubs, resorts, banks and ATMs."

Earlier, the IDA and IMC (Indore Municipal Corporation) were reluctant to make investment for bringing municipal water supply to Super Corridor as it required an amount of around Rs 200 crore.

Similarly, MPEB (Madhya Pradesh Electricity Board) also refused to set up a sub-station if they are not allocated land by the IDA.

IDA chairman Shankar Lalwani said the 125-year-old Durga temple in Rajwada will be renovated by investing Rs 56 lakhs.

The ceiling of the temple is in bad shape and need renovation, he said.
