The Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation (GMC) will begin a two-day survey of the trans-Hindon region from January 27 to identify the area to be earmarked for development in its new Smart City proposal. A portion of the Vasundhara residential scheme is likely to be added to the Area-Based Development (ABD) component of the new proposal.
The new proposal will be submitted to the Union Urban Development Ministry by March 31 for competition in the third round of selection of cities for development under the Smart City Mission.
GMC officials said that the survey would be conducted in association with the private consultant that has been selected to prepare the new proposal. According to officials, Ghaziabad had scored 50.5 points out of a total of 100 in the marking procedure adopted by the urban development ministry. Ghaziabad had fallen short of the minimum qualifying marks by of 55 points by 4.5 marks.
“For the Area-Based Development component of the previous plan, a region comprising Vaishali and Kaushambi had been selected. For the new plan, we have proposed including a portion of Vasundhara by cutting out a portion of Kaushambi. Portions of at least three major residential schemes in the trans-Hindon areas will be included in the proposal,” a senior GMC official said.
