The offices of 70 departments including the collectorate in the capital will now be in a single building. For the construction of this green building of Smart City, the cabinet has approved the land of roadways workshop on Haridwar Road. In return, the Transport Corporation will get the land for the bus stand. There has been a proposal to build a green building under Smart City for about four years, but due to non-availability of land, it could not materialize. Earlier it was proposed to construct this building in the Collectorate premises, which did not get approved. After this, a proposal to construct a green building on the land of Roadways’ Haridwar Road workshop was prepared, but remained stuck for a long time. The Transport Corporation had now placed a demand of Rs 114 crore 20 lakh in lieu of giving its land. This proposal came in the cabinet meeting held on Monday, in which it was decided that the land of roadways workshop would be given for green building. In return, the Transport Corporation will get all those lands in which bus stands are built on government land.
The cost of the eight-storey building will be Rs 187 crore
The green building will be constructed at a cost of 187 crores. In this, offices of 70 departments including the collectorate will be shifted. The aim is that people do not have to wander separately for government work. Instead, all the work from Tehsil to Collectorate should be possible in a single building. There will be a large parking lot in the eight-storey green building.
