Chennai:Tamil Nadu government has decided to develop 539 square kilometers of Marimalai Nagar-Thiruporur corridor and has asked Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority to prepare a detailed development plan.
CMDA sources told Express on Monday that a masterplan is being prepared by Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority to develop the area.
CMDA sources said that the state government has issued a government order to take up the detailed development plan in the area, which has around 134 villages.
Interestingly, there won’t be any land acquisition and CMDA is studying the land use for each and every survey number, he said.
He said the focus is currently to prepare a detailed development plan for the area. The development would be done as per the existing structure and there will be no displacements. “We will be regulating the existing land, CMDA sources said.
He, however said there will be some changes in the land use pattern and the focus will be more on building infrastructure.
“The basic focus would be on road development, water supply and road infrastructure,” he said.
He said the entire project would take a minimum of three to four years. “The biggest issue is there are thousands of survey numbers besides we have to find the land use pattern in the area and also to get details about the exact owner of the land,” he said.
Interestingly, the plan to develop the area has been lying in doldrums and the state government has given a new lease of life to the project by asking CMDA to prepare a masterplan recently. Interestingly, the plan is also not to acquire or displace any people.
