The ambitious Dravyavati project is sure in good hands as the project is receiving all necessary approvals and completing all legal formalities in time.
Recently, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) received a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the forest and environment ministry to include a gabion structure in the Dravyavati project.
Purpose of Gabion
A gabion is a container filled with earth, stones, or other material and used in civil engineering works. The gabion will prevent flooding during heavy rains and also thwart any damage to the erected structures. The gabion will be a 5.5 km long structure which will also accentuate beauty of the Dravyavati project.
Dravyavati Project: Obstacles to overcome
One major hurdle is to obtain an NOC for construction at a 3-km stretch which is occupied by the military area. The JDA has had a detailed discussion in that regard with a local commander. Another major hurdle is to rehabilitate residents of the Hasanpura basti.
“Talks are underway with the relevant authorities to clear the remaining two hurdles in the project,” said JDA commissioner Vaibhav Galriya.
A huge portion of the nullah flows through highly occupied areas. Hence, proper rehabilitation camps have been organised in the past to ensure that all residents switch to new locations peacefully.
Dravyavati Project: Current Scheme of Things
The consortium of Tata Projects and Shanghai Urban Construction Group has been designated the task of completing Dravyavati project. The consortium is currently working on disposing garbage and junk materials found in the nullah.
The Dravyavati project entails the construction of ecological park, recreational park, tourist-centric green cover, walking tracks and ponds beside check dams and sewerage treatment plant. The ecological park will be built on the same lines as the famous Singapore botanical garden.
The consortium will be responsible for maintaining this ₹ 1,676 crore project for a period of 10 years.
