Indore : The Indore Development Authority (IDA) succeeded in getting the land at Scheme No 78 opposite Shalimar Township worth Rs 40 crore from a builder on Wednesday.

In a meeting held on Wednesday, the IDA board withdrew its proposal of developing a marriage garden and a community hall on the green belt land. The meeting was headed by IDA chairman Shankar Lalwani. After the board meeting, Lalwani told media persons that the dispute over 2.99 acre land in Scheme No 78 II phase at Niranjanpur had been sorted out.

The land owners were called for an interaction before the IDA board meeting on Wednesday and they reached consensus. Accordingly out of 2.99 acre land, 39 percent will be owned by IDA and the remaining land will be given to land owner, Chhawla Builders. Eleven percent land from 2.99 acre land has already been given for construction of the BRTS.  Lalwani further said that the IDA also solved objections received against inclusion of land of villages Bada Bangarda, Palakhedi, Limbodagari, Bhaiwrasla and Tigriya Badshaw in the IDA Scheme No 176. Total 230 hectare lands in these villages have been included into the scheme. The final publication of land acquisition is expected soon. The IDA has sent the documents to the state government.

In a surprising move, the IDA board withdrew the proposal of development of marriage garden and community hall on the green belt. Sources said that the proposal was found illegal. Hence, the board withdrew the proposal in its meeting.
