RANCHI: Chief minister Arjun Munda on Friday asked officials to expedite the Greater Ranchi project as delay will only lead to increase in cost.
The directive was issued by Munda during the meeting of Greater Ranchi Development Authority (GRDA) at state secretariat. "Instead of wasting time we should start off with the project and try to prevent cost escalation," said Munda. The first phase of the new township will come up in the vacant land of Heavy Engineering Corporation Limited and adjoining areas.
Sources in GRDA said the consultant for the project has already prepared a blueprint of the core capital area replete with government offices, residences of ministers and officers along with high court, assembly and Raj Bhawan. The authority has plans to lay the foundation stone of the project, which will come up on around 2,000 acre, within a month.
"The chief minister also expressed his desire to have a dedicated building for space application centre which will be dedicated for research work in various fields for benefit of the state," said a source present at the meeting.
This was the first meeting of the chief minister at the state secretariat in the past five months. After the chopper crash in May he had not attended any meeting at the secretariat. All important meetings were organized at his residence as he was advised by doctors not to sit for long hours.
"Now that he is completely fit he decided to attend office at the secretariat from today," said a source.
During his stay at the secretariat he took part in four meetings including the meeting of state cabinet and one on urban local bodies. He also disposed some official files and had discussions with senior officers.
