Chandigarh, July 29
The MC House today approved to raze the Janj Ghar in Sector 47 to pave the way for a modern banquet hall.
The House approved an amount of Rs76.40 crore for the project. As per the plan, the building will have ground, first and second floor and three levels in the basement for parking of vehicles and other purposes.
The banquet hall will have meditation centre, yoga centre, library, gym, dormitory, AC rooms, open to sky hall, parking for 350 cars in basements, lifts and other facilities.
The MC will either seek funds from the UT Administration or ask it to build it. The civic body has already approved a banquet hall in the Industrial Area, Phase 1, but the work on it could not be started till date due to fund crunch. “We will soon float a tender in this regard,” said MC Commissioner KK Yadav.
Councillor Davesh Moudgil said, “People from the city go to Zirakpur to arrange marriage functions. If we are able to build banquet halls here, we can earn revenue besides providing a facility to the people.”
