Punjab to develop 50 new urban estates








Chandigarh, Feb 12 (IANS) To give a boost to urban infrastructure, the Punjab government Tuesday announced that 50 new urban estates would be established in the state.

Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal Tuesday gave the go-ahead signal to Punjab Urban Development Authority (PUDA) to establish 50 new urban estates at various identified sites across the state to provide better living facilities to people.

The new urban estates will be established under the jurisdiction of six developmental authorities of Mohali, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Amritsar, Patiala and Bathinda.

Eight sites under Bathinda Development Authority (BDA) having an area of about 800 acres had been identified to establish new urban estates. Under the Patiala Development Authority (PDA), 160 acres for three new urban estates, while nine sites under Jalandhar Development Authority (JDA) had been identified, housing and urban development officials said.

Up to 3,100 acres of land for establishing six sites under Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) is likely to be finalized, they added.

Badal also approved a Rs.1,250 crore project for providing 5,000 affordable houses to the economically weaker section (EWS) category at four sites in Mohali, 10 km from here.

Interacting with chief administrators of various development authorities here, Badal directed them to ensure strict implementation of the master plans in the towns and cities under their jurisdiction.
