GHAZIABAD (Metro Rail News): On Thursday, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) expressed its inability to provide 30 hectares from the land it has acquired for the Madhuban-Bapudham housing scheme to the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) for construction of an RRTS depot there.
On Thursday in Lucknow, Asheesh Shivpuri, GDA’s chief architect and town planner said, “We have apprised the government about the unavailability of the land.” The government was informed during a meeting chaired by the principal secretary (housing and urban planning department).
On Monday, NCRTC officials had met GDA vice-chairperson Kanchan Verma and sought land needed for constructing a depot. It had also offered to build an RRTS station in the area. The depot was earlier supposed to come up in Duhai. But the demand for land at Madhuban-Bapudham was necessitated after NCRTC and farmers from Duhai failed to arrive at a consensus on land compensation rates.
