A senior GHMC official told The Hans India that HRDCL will maintain all 9,099.24 kilometre stretches across the city by the next financial year. He said at first the HRDCL will improve R&B and main roads. He said after improving the prime arterial stretches the HRDCL will maintain bylanes.
He said apart from the transfer of roads along with Right of Way (RoW), all rights over roads like advertisements, parking, access and lease from any structure or cess on property tax also assigned to HRDCL.
He said any impact fee levied on properties adjacent to the roads (within distance of 200 metres from road or full depth of the property, whichever is higher) will be assigned to HRDCL to generate revenue to enable loans.
He said government would set up a separate office with a chief engineer, where it would work in co-ordination with GHMC. He said HDRCL will become operational by first week of May.
