The Central Government has approved the proposal to increase the area of ​​Muzaffarpur Smart City from 1172 acres to 2277 acres. That is, the area of ​​Mithanpura, Kalambagh Chowk, University, Chhath Chowk and Bairia Bus Stand has now been included in the Smart City area. About three months ago, the Urban Development and Housing Department had sent its proposal to the Central Government.

 

A total of seven wards were included

Earlier, the area of ​​Smart City was 1172 acres, which included only seven wards (01, 03, 04, 11, 12, 13 and 14). The central government had given permission of Rs 1580 crore to spend in the ABD (Area Based Development) of these seven wards. Due to the less area involved, there was a problem in spending money.

No separate amount

In February-March this year, when Anand Kishore, Principal Secretary, Urban Development and Housing Department, became the chairman of the Smart City Board of Directors, he had prepared a proposal to include an area of ​​1105 acres of the new area of ​​the city. However, the government has not given a separate amount for the expanded new area. In the letter issued by the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing, it has been directed to spend Rs 1580 crore in the extended ABD area.
