New Delhi, August 10
Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu today laid the foundation stone of a long-awaited housing complex project worth Rs 46 crore here for Rajya Sabha secretariat employees.
As many as 40 dwelling units will be built in the complex located in RK Puram here. On the occasion, Naidu lamented that there was a 17-year delay in putting the prime land to use.
Union Housing and Urban Affairs and Civil Aviation Minister HS Puri assured Naidu that the project would be completed in less than three years. The secretariat was feeling the pinch of acute housing shortage for its employees.
“The long period of 17 years taken for launching the housing project resulted in avoidable costs for the secretariat,” Naidu said, referring to the social-economic-legal-administrative cobwebs that resulted in non-utilisation of precious land resource. He held several rounds of meetings with several authorities, including Puri, over the past two years. — TNS
