JAIPUR: The state government will regularise colonies in Prithvi Raj Nagar (PRN) that were not developed as per the norms.

Orders were issued to regularise colonies that did not follow the 60:40 ratio of development.

An official said, “The layout plan of colonies which are developed as per 70:30 ratio will also be approved by the civic body in PRN.”

Experts said if such colonies are regularised, they would be more like slums as there would be no facility and open areas.

Abhishek Sharma, who lives in the colony said, “Residents of PRN scheme will still remain deprived of facilities even after regularisation due to unequal development and as no land is left to develop the facility area. Though, they will procure the lease deeds, but hope for parks and other facility area will be finished.”

According to Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) officials, 80% houses are already constructed in the 11,600 bigha scheme as per the last survey.

The announcement to regularise the PRN scheme during the Prashasan Shero ke Sang has been made to benefit the residents starving of basic amenities such as roads, water, and electricity since long. However, if official sources are to be believed, the remaining land is not sufficient to develop facilities such as parks, community centres and hospitals among others.

“In a colony, 30% land is required to develop the roads, drainage etc. In the current situation, the land is not even sufficient for construction of road and thinking of parks and a community centre is difficult,” an official said.

In the Master Plan 2011, the scheme was marked as a special zone and the JDA had drafted a plan to regularise the scheme. In first draft, around 8,000 prepared constructed houses and shops were expected to get affected if the scheme is regularized, according to an official.

In the proposal, the state government had divided the scheme into north and south zones where it was proposed that the south zone would have three 200-ft-wide sector roads, including an east-west road joining B-2 bypass with the Ring Road, another east-west road joining New Sanganer Road at Mansarovar’s VT Road to the Ring Road and a north-south road joining Sanganer town to the Gopalpura bypass.

Jaipur: 10 years on, Amrit Kunj plot owners to get alternate land – ET RealEstate

Representative Image

JAIPUR: Nearly after a decade several plot owners of Amrit Kunj Housing Scheme will receive their plots in another scheme. The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has decided to allot plots to successful allottees in another scheme named Amirt Kunj-2 in zone-12.

The Amrit Kunj scheme on Kalwar Road was stalled after negligent JDA developed the scheme in the catchment area of Bandi river. Due to this, 733 successful allottees could not receive possession of their plots.

AN official said, “The new scheme will be developed on 100 bighas of land. The JDA has reserved four parks in the scheme. The nod has been given to scheme in the recent meeting.”

The JDA developed the previous scheme on 151 bighas of land in 2010. In the scheme, 1,417 plots were developed, out of which allotments were made for 1,182. The remaining corner plots were held back for auction.

An official said, “As colony was falling under the catchment area, 733 plot owners were not provided with allotment.”

The Amrit Kunj scheme was in some controversy since its inception. The JDA was forced to re-plan the layout after facing a strong protest from the nearby villagers and NGOs.

Jaipur development body colonies lack basic amenities even after years – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: In the absence of demarcation and facilities, many people who have purchased the plots in colonies either developed or approved by Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) are unable to construct their houses.

According to JDA records, there are 134 colonies approved or developed by it after 2013. In these colonies , nearly 38,000 plots have been developed including Economic Weaker Section (EWS) and Lower Income Group (LIG). However, even after 7 years, most of the colonies wear a deserted look in the absence of facilities.

Waqim Khan, who purchased a plot in Deendayal Nagar zone-12, feels cheated as even after eight years, the JDA has not even demarcated the roads after receiving the entire amount.

He said, “There is no demarcation on the ground. It is difficult to identify the location of my own plots. In such a scenario, the buyers can neither sell or construct houses on the plots. After lottery was drawn, successful allottees deposited the money on time. However, on the ground, there is zero development.”

Sudha Kumawat, who is facing a similar plight after purchasing a plot in same colony said, “We have submitted several applications at JDA for carrying out demarcation and constructing the roads at least to reach our plots. But, our plea remain unheard till date.”

Due to absence of electricity and water, habitation in these colonies appears to be a distant dream.

In the past, the JDA launched many housing schemes to fill its coffers. However, this money has not been spent on developing these colonies.

Since these schemes were promoted by the JDA, many bought land even though the reserve price of some bigger plots was higher in comparison to the market price. Many also ignored the fact that these colonies were situated places faraway from the city.

An official source said the JDA can only start colonies in far-flung areas after seeking no-objection certificates (NOCs) from the water and electricity departments. “Both these departments have locked horns with JDA over the development charge issue. Also, these departments claim the colonies are faraway and it is not feasible to provide water or electricity as huge capital is required to develop infrastructure,” the official said.
