FUNDS CRUNCH

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

The work for beau­ti­fy­ing the 1.4km nul­lah, which runs from Sec­tor 13 to Sec­tor 19A, par­al­lel to Won­ders Park in Nerul, was first pro­posed in 2007 at an es­ti­mated bud­get of Rs3.47 crore. In 2010, the cost in­creased to Rs6.72 crore

The de­lay for ap­prov­ing the pro­posal for clean­ing the nul­lah, which is sur­rounded by as many as 29 hous­ing so­ci­eties, had fi­nally es­ca­lated the pro­ject cost to Rs10.67 crore last year

Of­fi­cials from the NMMC said that the pro­ject, which be­gan in Fe­bru­ary last year, got stuck ev­ery time owing to lack of funds re­leased from the JNNURM scheme.
