WB Govt gives nod to two new townships at Rajarhaat
Two new townships will be set up in the outskirts of Kolkata in the Rajarhaat Block with an estimated investment of Rs 4000 crore. Each township will come up on 100 acres of land.
The West Bengal cabinet gave a nod to these projects earlier this month; the Urban Development Department and Land Reforms Department are processing necessary clearances.
The townships will be built by Highland Group and Forum Group. Both the groups have been granted primary clearances under Town and Country Planning Act.
In the recently concluded Bengal Global Business Summit, investment proposals worth Rs 67,703 crore have been received for building 22 townships. The West Bengal Cabinet recently cleared six theme townships.
