RHB opens box of goodies for public

Jaipur: The Jhulelal Market which has been lying un-utilised since past 15 years is about to see good days.

The famous Tibetan Market which is set up every winters in Jaipur will now be set up at this un-used area. Decision regarding this along with other major decisions were taken in the meeting of Rajasthan Housing Board.

While many of the decisions will be good for the people of various sections some of the decisions will be beneficial for the city as a whole.

The Board meeting was important in this sense too that major decisions to strengthen the Board were also taken.

Board will now have an enforcement wing, the need of which was being felt since long because of encroachments on lands belonging to the Housing Board but in absence of enforcement wing, it was not able to take action. A horticulture wing will also be set up in the Board and after this, parks near the RHB colonies can be developed. The ones which are already there can be maintained in a better way.

In this meeting which was chaired by Housing Board chairman Bhaskar Sawant, decision to form a marketing cell in the board has been taken. In this, board will conduct its marketing through trained people.

Decision to reduce the reserved price of the residential land of the board from 2.25 times to 1.50 times has also been taken.

Along with this, big schemes like coaching hub in Pratap Nagar, fountain square in Mansarovar and open air theatre in Dastkar Nagar have been given approval.

Due to the special efforts of Board commissioner Pawan Arora, the Tibet Market will be shifted to Jhulelal Market.

As per Commissioner Arora, 250 shops will be allotted through lottery to the members of Tibetan Refugee Hosiery Readymade Seller Union.

This will change the days for this market which has remained ignored for last several years. After the shifting of Tibetan market, the rest of the shops will also be easily allotted.

Recently the RHB Commissioner Arora had given this proposal to the Tibetan businessmen and after the efforts of Arora, they agreed to this.

RHB to build houses for teachers and constables

Good news has also come for teachers of the state and for constables and head constables after the RHB meeting. Board will launch a scheme of affordable flats for these sections of the society in Pratap Nagar and in both the schemes about 700 flats will be constructed. The ones who had not been able to take part in the e-auction or had failed have also been given opportunity by the Board. After the e-auction process is completed, Board will then start the sealed auction scheme in which the houses will be auctioned and information regarding this will soon be made available on website of the Board.
