KMC to spend Rs 400 crore for the development of Kolkata

Trinamool Congress-run Kolkata Municipal Corporation will spend Rs 400 crore for the development of Kolkata. Rs 155 crore out of this will be provided by the state and the rest of the money is coming from KMC's own revenue.

Kolkata Mayor Sovan Chatterjee on Friday held a meeting with his council members to finalize the projects and deadlines. Particular emphasis will be on wrapping up pending infrastructure work.

Water treatment plants

KMC hopes that the Dhapa water treatment plant on EM Bypass will be completed on time. It can deliver 100 million gallons of water a day. Once complete, this would be a boon to lakhs along the entire length of EM Bypass.

The Kolkata Mayor on Friday announced an allocation of Rs 45 crore for construction of booster pumping stations that will carry filtered water from the Dhapa plant to large areas in Beliaghata.

Garbage Compactors

Next on the priority list is cleanliness. He kept aside Rs 50 crore to set up garbage compactor stations across the city to phase out open vats that are such an ugly sight on city roads. This is one of the new projects planned in the Rs 400 crore package.

Development of slums

Next, the civic body will spend Rs 45 crore for development of slums. Basic amenities like supply of filtered water, sanitation and sewerage in slums will be set up. The board will focus on developing the sewerage network, especially where old brick sewers are under threat.


The KMC will also spend Rs 10 crore for beautification of water bodies and parks. The mayor said tenders were being floated for these projects. “We will issue work orders as soon as the tender process is complete,” Chatterjee said.
