New Delhi: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi has begun the first phase of the redevelopment work of Jama Masjid, which includes the cleaning up of the area it is located in.

The preliminary work has begun, MCD officials said.

The MCD has last month cleared Rs 1200 crore plan for redevelopment of the Mughal era mosque.

MCD has also started work on the supplementary plan of decongesting the areas neighbouring the ancient structure.

The Corporation is removing all encroachments in the area to implement its decongestion plan, officials said.

The proposal to redevelop the Jama Masjid precinct was cleared by the MCD Standing Committee in September 2009.
