Four projects amounting to Rs 282 crore sanctioned by EFC
New Delhi, June 29 (UNI) Delhi government's Expenditure Finance Committee today gave its nod to four projects -- two of Public Works Department and one each of Transport and Irrigation and Flood Control departments -- amounting to Rs 282 crore.
Two major projects cleared today by EFC are related to road re-engineering for the implementation of the High Capacity Bus System from Ambedkar Nagar to Delhi Gate and construction of a flyover at Naraina.
The projects were sanctioned in a meeting of the EFC chaired by Delhi Finance and Planning Minister A K Walia.
After the meeting, Dr Walia said EFC had sanctioned a revised estimate of Rs 153.05 crore for 14.5 km-long road re-engineering to facilitate HCBS from Ambedkar Nagar to Delhi Gate.
This would negate an earlier estimate of Rs 112.96 crore cleared by EFC in Feb 2005. The project of transport department would be completed within 20 months of the start of work.
This would go a long way in providing world-class infrastructure in the city, he added.
