GWALIOR: Gwalior is a true example of how small cities can grow into big towns by bringing nearby villages to life. Planned development coupled with strategic growth has led to an inclusion of more than 20 new villages in Gwalior. While interacting with Magicbricks, the mayor of the city, Samiksha Gupta spoke on the infrastructural plans of the city.

“The government has been focussing on creating wider and better road networks for the city. 28 nearby villages, which were so far deprived of basic facilities such as water, electricity and connectivity have been covered. In order to improve the basic water availability in the city, more than 20 overhead tanks have been installed across the city,” says Gupta.

While the city is already a small time industrial hub, it is fast developing as an educational hub. Along with providing housing for students in forms of hostels and guest houses, the government is also focusing on providing housing for the poor. Almost 4000 houses have been built under the Garib Awas Yojna and several more are planned under the Rajiv Awas Yojna.

In order to promote affordable housing, the government has come up with the installement plans, where the buyer pays some amount and the rest is shared between the government and the municipality.

In fact under ISDP project Utthan, the government has taken considerable steps to make the city livable by providing water, electricity, sewerage and public conveniences at small distances.
Coupled with such facilities, the government is working rigorously towards promoting tourism in Gwalior. Developments such as cycling tracks, green tracks and walking tracks are also in the pipeline.
