Jaipur development body plans scheme for farmhouses – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: After reclaiming its prime land from encroachers, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) plans to develop farmhouse and agro-warehousing scheme. The civic body’s enforcement team recently removed encroachment from 120 bigha land at Natta village in zone-13. Similarly, 180 bigha of land was reclaimed in Govindpura Ropda in zone-10.

An official said, “A survey will be conducted of both the lands to decide whether to develop a farmhouse scheme or agro-warehousing scheme. A report will be tabled in a review meeting on Tuesday”.

Moreover, JDA will soon launch agro-warehousing scheme at Amber. It has earmarked 1.19 lakh square metre land in Akheda and Maheshpura village. Out of the total land, 33,000 square metre will be reserved to develop 18 big warehouse plots. Facilities including hotel, restaurants, petrol pumps, banks and others will be developed on the remaining land.

“The scheme has been launched in the close proximity of agriculture farms. Moreover, it is also connected with the industrial areas, railway and bus stand,” added the official. JDA is also planning to develop a similar warehousing project on Ajmer Road, Tonk Road and Agra Road.

Officials claim that these projects will boost the infrastructure and jobs avenues in the city and businessmen and farmers will also be benefited. “If companies develop warehouses in these areas, they can definitely get proper connectivity with national capital as Jaipur comes under a counter magnetic city. Moreover, it is not far from Agra, Delhi and nearby areas where a lot of industries are established. The investors would be in the centre point of the golden triangle,” an official said.

Finding an innovative way to earn revenue, JDA this year had decided to prepare an action plan to sell its land. The deputy commissioners were asked to include re-planning of the plots, fix auction rates, methodology of auction and wide publicity of JDA assets in the action plan.

Jaipur development body approved colonies yet to get basic facilities – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: Besides other civic problems, no drainage system is the major issue that the residents of wards in Vidhyadhar Nagar are facing.

Many colonies were approved by the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), but after five years, residents are still waiting for proper roads and sewerage lines in their areas.

Deepak Maheshwari, a resident of the area, said, “The colonies developed the civic body are functioning properly. However, most of the colonies do not have civic facilities. There is no co-operation from the government officials as well.”

General board of Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) ceased to exist last year in November. Since then, civic work has been neglected in the area. Now, local representatives are not in charge, the advantage of which is being taken by the officials.

“Door-to-door garbage collection is totally failed. Except in main roads, vehicles do not come to the inner lanes. Depots are coming back and sanitation condition is degrading,” said Rashmi Jain, another resident.

Most of the colonies do not have drainage system and waterlogging is a big problem over there. During monsoon, waterlogged roads had become a major problem as many people were stuck in traffic for long hours.

“In kachhi basti, condition is bad as people are not that politically connected to get their work done. During monsoon, people have to struggle in the locality to get out of their house due to chocked sewerage line and waterlogged roads,” said Kehsav Dhanka, a resident.

In 2014, out of 14 wards in Vidhyadhar Nagar legislative assembly area, 10 seats were with BJP, 2 independents and 2 Congress.

Jaipur development body plans to issue freehold lease online – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) on Tuesday decided to issue freehold lease to the plot owners who will deposit 10-year lease amount collectively.

The landholders who have taken the lease deed (patta) from the JDA after depositing one-time lease amount of eight years will be contacted by the JDA. “The JDA will offer these owners to procure the freehold lease after depositing additional two years’ lease money. The amount for remaining two years can be deposited online,” said a source.

The JDA has also decided to develop an online system for accepting the application and issuing freehold lease. Explaining the freehold lease concept, an official said, “At present, an owner can claim a right on a residential property only for 99 years. In current scenario, the state government levies eight times of the lease money, payable one time to grant 99 years’ lease on residential properties. Once the one-time lease money is deposited, the allottee receives a certificate from the department. For the freehold lease, the department charges increased lease money amount by 10 times from the normal eight times.”

The freehold lease system was introduced in the state three years ago. However, not many plot owners have subscribed to the offer as it looked infeasible. An official source said, “The owners can forward to full ownership rights. However, majority of the plot owners have paid lease money for eight years. Even, the time period of old plot owners expires, they pay eight years’ lease hold, which gives them 99 years’ right.”

Jaipur development body to launch four housing schemes on August 15 – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) is planning to launch four more housing schemes in the state capital after the successful endeavour to attract buyers in recently launched projects.

A total of 1,500 plots will be developed in these four schemes, which will be launched on August 15. Allotment of about 1,500 plots in the housing schemes will be done through lottery and auction.

The civic body will develop colony named as Hiralal Shastri Nagar in zone-14, Gokul Nagar in Prithviraj Nagar Scheme (North zone), APJ Abdul Kalam Nagar in zone 11. Around 200 plots of Nilay Kunj Scheme which were developed earlier in zone-9 will be allotted after re-planning.

To sell the plots in its developed schemes, the JDA recently had reduced the reserve price of uninhabited land in its region by 10% to 37%. The decision was taken by the higher authorities looking at the slump in prices in the region and also for many years, they were unable to auction the plots.

The JDA is confident to selling the plots in these schemes, looking at the previous response. As these schemes will not be developed in far-flung areas, many buyers are expected to show interest to buy plots at these locations. A senior official said, “The move is expected to boost the revenues, that will be utilised to develop infrastructure.” “As the market condition has improved, the JDA will also fill its coffers after auctioning plots in its old scheme,” he said.

As JDA has many schemes in far-flung areas, not many residents have applied to buy those in the past as the authorities failed to provide even basic facilities. Due to lack of power and water, the sites of these colonies continue to wear a deserted look. An official source said, since 2005, the civic body has launched 38 housing schemes, but most of those are still unoccupied.
