ISBT to be ready by year end 

By Our Staff Reporter

Bhopal, Jan 9 MP Kailash Joshi has said that the development of the City should be in a planned way. He was speaking at the meeting of Planning and Supervision Committee here on Monday.

BDA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rahi said that the interstate bus terminus (ISBT) near Habibganj would become operational by the end of this year. He said that the work on the ISBT was in progress on 22-acre of land.

He said that an amount of Rs six crore had been provided for the construction of the bus terminus. Rahi informed that construction of ground floor parking, Sulabh Complex, passenger waiting room, ticket window and shopping centre at the ISBT was in progress.

Joshi said that there should be better arrangement for the supply of water in the city. He said that, while formulating plans, the authorities must keep in mind the future requirements of the city. He said that the shanties should be rehabilitated in a planned manner and all facilities should be provided to the shanty dwellers at the site of rehabilitation.

Mayor Sunil Sood said that the process for bringing Narmada water to Bhopal should be speeded up. He said that the government should give permission to the BMC for Kolar Phase Two.

MLA Umashankar Gupta, Divisional Commissioner KK Singh, Collector Sanjay Shukla, District Panchayat President Chetan Patidar and Mandi President Bhagirath Patidar also gave their suggestions regarding development of Bhopal.

BDA is beyond the limits of CTI

Bhopal: The BDA has denied to provide its functional inquiry to chief technical inspector (CTI), CEO's letter has created a controversy on account of its letter to CTI and autonomous organisations related to construction works.

Chief technical inspector had written a letter number 4377 general 1 to BDA and had directed it to provide information regarding construction works being carried under BDA. According to sources CTI was reported about certain irregularities in construction works.

In the light of complaints CTI wanted to seek information regarding quality construction. In the response of the said letter chief executive officer informed CTI through letter number 513, that BDA is functioning under Madhya Pradesh government housing and environment department.

It will be much better for CTI to correspondence with principal secretary, as BDA is an autonomous organisation the letter reads, BDA manages all the things independently and has nothing to do with CTI. BDA has over looked the directions of CTI.

It is to be noted here that CTI is the agency which reports to government regarding construction works conducted by various agencies. According to housing and environment department's secretary a number of departments are subject to CTI hence denial of BDA is baseless.
