NO WORK IN 7 PROPOSED TOWNSHIPS
▪ No work or development took place in seven of the 13 proposed townships for which licences were issued to realtors, housing department officials said.
▪ “There is no point on holding on to huge tracts of land notified for these townships in these cities now as the projects have failed to take off even after a decade,” said a senior housing department official dealing with the issue.
▪ He said an estimated 25,000 acre of land was expected to become free if the state government decided to revoke the licences of these inactive developers and denotify the land set aside for these townships.
▪ The realtors who could lose their licenses include one each in Lucknow, Varanasi, Kanpur, Mathura, Bulandhshahar and two in Agra.
