The Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has cleared an action plan for Rs 251.69 crore to implement various provisions made in the budget for 2016-17.
At the MUDA general body meeting held recently, MUDA has agreed to allot 3.18 acres of land for the purpose of sewage treatment plant that would be established close to Nachanahally-Koppallur which would address the solid waste management issue. It has also agreed to handover 50 percent of the developed sites to the original land owners in lieu of acquiring land at Nachanahalli, Dattagalli and neighbouring places.
It was also decided to ask the forest department not to plant saplings along the drains and drinking water lines while carrying out their afforestation programmes. In a major step that will benefit its employees, MUDA has decided to establish a fund to provide pension for its retired employees.
The authority has also included extending drainage system, development of parks and roads.
The urban development body has decided to clear all encroachments at Vijayashripura Layout before September 15.
Following the Supreme Court’s December 16 2015 order that set a six-month deadline to clear encroachments, – 23.5 acres of land in Vijayashripura and 16.5 acres of land along Hunsur Road and adjacent to Premier Studio – MUDA has asked the residents to vacate the premises voluntarily.
The meeting was chaired by MUDA chairperson K R Mohan Kumar, MUDA Members, MLAs M K Somashekar, Vasu, G T Devegowda, MLCs Sandesh Nagaraj, Dharmasena and others were present.
