Minister of state (I/C) housing and urban affairs Hardeep Singh Puri handed over 210 flats of type two to allottees for possession under the government pool residential accommodation (GPRA) redevelopment scheme at East Kidwai Nagar in New Delhi.
NBCC (India) Limited has built the flats under the redevelopment project approved in June 2012. The project has been undertaken on self-revenue generation model through leasing of office spaces to government departments, public sector undertakings and public sector banks.
Puri said, “Such buildings made by using green and sustainable technologies will lead to better quality of life and environmental rejuvenation. I congratulate NBCC for having executed the project in a speedy manner.”
NBCC will be maintaining the East Kidwai Nagar complex for the next 30 years.
As per the NBCC, the old colony had 2,444 houses with a total built-up area of 88,476 square metres. In the redeveloped project, the unit size is much bigger and the new flats come with modern amenities like modular kitchen, cupboards and a balcony with each room. A total of 4,608 houses are being built with a total built-up area of 5.31 lakh square metres.
Out of 78 residential towers, 58 have been completed. The remaining towers will be completed by December 2018. It is a 3-star GRIHA-rated project with green features like a sewage treatment plant. The treated water will be used for horticulture and flushing. The solid waste management plant will make compost for horticulture within the campus. As part of the project, a 2.5 MW solar power unit is also being set up which will be connected to the NDMC grid.
The sub-smart city project will also have services like building management system, anti-fire equipment, water and sewage facilities, parking, street lights, entry and exit gates and lifts integrated digitally through a command and control centre.
