Fresh projects worth Rs. 5,033.91 cr
The Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure (CCI) has recently approved 24 on-going and fresh projects in Delhi with an estimated cost of Rs5,033.91 crore. Generally, such projects are approved by the Ministry of Urban Development.
However, in this case Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure had to consider and accord sanctions, as Government of Delhi had to be exempted from some of the reforms and procedural requirements, in view of the fact that land as a subject is not within the jurisdiction of Government of Delhi and due to urgency of Commonwealth Games, 2010.
The CCI also accorded approval for purchase of 1,500 buses at an estimated cost of Rs.765.75 crores with retrospective effect as Government of Delhi had placed purchase orders in advance.
