Pushpak Nagar to be ready by 2018
The Rs941 crore project, spread over 230 hectares, is expected to house 2.4 lakh people
CBD BELAPUR: The City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco) Navi Mumbai South Smart City project also has the greenfield smart city – Pushpak Nagar, which is planned to be a model for the Cidco smart city project.
The work on Rs941-crore project, spread over 230 hectares, has already begun.
It is expected to be completed by December 2018. A total of 2.4 lakh people are expected to live in the node.
Pushpak Nagar is located in the southern area of Navi Mumbai on NH4B, approaching the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT). It is at a distance of around 40km from the existing airport at Mumbai and 4km from the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA). The entire area of Pushpak Nagar falls in the Panvel taluka in Raigad.
Cidco vice-chairman and managing director, Sanjay Bhatia said, “As Cidco is moving ahead with the development of NMIA, rehabilitation and resettlement have become an integral part.”
He added, “The package proposed by Cidco and finalised by the government of Maharashtra envisages compensation in the form of land against the land acquired for the development of NMIA.
Bhatia said, “The 230 hectare Pushpak Nagar township has been planned for allotment of the land under 22.5% scheme to the PAP.”
“As this township is coming right next to NMIA, Cidco has decided to develop this township with top-class infrastructure,” added Bhatia.
“Cidco has also decided to develop this township as a greenfield smart township which will be completely financed by Cidco and will be able to accommodate a population of 2.4 lakh people,” said Bhatia.
As it is a greenfield project, from the very outset, it will have state-of-the-art infrastructure which will provide high quality of life to its citizens while ensuring environment sustainability of the city.
The airport project-affected people will get land at Pushpak Nagar under 22.5% scheme.
