ROURKELA:  The proposals for comprehensive development plan (CDP) for creation of Greater Rourkela, integrated sewerage and drainage systems are heading in the right direction, which were conceptualised by BJD leader Sarada Prasad Nayak despite his defeat in the recently concluded general elections.

Nayak had aggressively pursued the three projects during his tenure as a minister in Naveen Patnaik Government in 2009. He lost the election from Rourkela Assembly segment this time.

Rourkela Development Authority (RDA) planning member Ram Mohan Mishra said the final draft of CDP will be presented before the RDA in a fortnight.

 The decision would be followed by gazette notification by the Government inviting suggestions and objections on the CDP. The process of scrutiny will be completed by the committee of CDP in three to four months following which the draft will become a statutory document, he said.

The CDP envisages inclusion of notified areas of RDA including Rourkela Municipality limits and adjacent semi-urban and rural pockets of Vedvyas, Kuanrmunda, Kalunga, Jagda, Jhirpani and part of Lathikata block in the Greater Rourkela limits.

The CDP will have provisions of planned transport network along with organised educational, commercial, residential and recreational areas having public utility, garbage disposal and drinking water supply facilities.

Mishra said slums at scattered locations will be brought together under Slum Upgradation Scheme and Rajiv Awas Yojana (RAY). The authorities of Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) and South Eastern Railway (SER) will be impressed upon to allow infrastructure growth in the slums located on their land to ensure better quality of life for slum dwellers.

Nayak said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is keen to see all-round development of Rourkela city. Besides the ongoing efforts for CDP, the Government has released `55 lakhs to draw up a master plan for new drainage system and sanctioned `562 crores to set up integrated sewerage system in the city, Nayak said.

Nayak also took a dig at BJP’s Rourkela MLA Dilip Ray for claiming credit of bringing `77 crores from the Centre to augment the city’s drinking water facility.
