Chandigarh: 57 schemes are being implemented
in Haryana at cost of over Rs 9,353 crore funded by National
Capital Region Planning Board, Railways and the state
government for orderly development of the area situated in
close proximity to Delhi.
This was stated at a meeting chaired by Haryana Chief
Secretary Urvashi Gulati here today.
The meeting was held to review the progress of these
schemes, an official release said here.
As Haryana has border with Delhi on three sides and a
large portion of the state’s area is under National Capital
Region (NCR), these schemes would further accelerate the pace
of development in this area, Gulati said.
It was also informed in the meeting that the development
of the core infrastructure was being carried out at the
regional level in the NCR area in the form of power
generation, transmission and distribution of power,
transportation (both road and rail), telecommunications and
the development of new township, strengthening of water supply
and sewerage works.
