Another detailed project report (DPR) of 221.66 crore had been submitted for tapping 15 more nullahs, they said. A DPR was also being prepared for supplying piped water to 20,000 houses and this project involved an estimated cost of 105 crore, they added.

The officials briefed the chief minister that five out of seven parks had been developed in Ayodhya.

While 80% work on the Rajdwar park was complete, the Ashwinipuram Colony park was 60% complete, they said.

The chief minister was briefed about the progress in the solid waste management work of Ayodhya and 10.05 hectare land had been marked for landfill site.
