First phase of the project will cost Rs. 13.55 crore

The Gulbarga Development Authority (GDA) proposes to set up a mega commercial complex through public-private partnership on 2.4 acres in the MSK Mill area here in the next financial year.

GDA chairman Vidyasagar Kulkarni said on Saturday that a proposal had been sent to the State government for approval.

“After the approval is received, we will take up work on the first phase at an estimated cost of Rs. 13.55 crore,” he said. Mr. Kulkarni pointed out that Rs. 22 crore had been earmarked in the GDA budget towards land acquisition for the proposed layouts in the city.

Referring to the commercial plots and vacant plots in GDA layouts, he said a special plan was being framed to sell them. Provision had been made in the budget to pay the additional sum to landowners from whom land was acquired for the formation of layouts, Mr. Kulkarni said.

He said the GDA would also take up construction of two marriage halls each in MSK Mill layout and Dhariyapur-Kotnur layout at a cost of Rs. 6 crore.

A recreation park would be set up in the Veerendra Patil GDA layout at a cost of Rs. 25 lakh.

A sum of Rs. 3 crore had been earmarked for the construction of three commercial complexes at Hirapur Cross.

Mr. Kulkarni said the GDA would also construct compound walls in all the parks in 50 localities at a cost of Rs. 4 crore, and Rs. 10 lakh had been set aside for planting tree saplings in different localities.

A sum of Rs. 5 lakh had been set aside for preparing the blueprint for setting up satellite vegetable markets.
