Ana Sagar Ajmer
In order to develop the twin cities including Ajmer and Kota in Rajasthan as the world class urban hubs, the state government has chalked out an ambitious plan to invest a staggering sum worth Rs. 2,808-cr on the planned projects. As per the original roadmap, Ajmer will be developed on retrofitting model, while Kota will get the newest touch on the green-field model for which there will be three approaches - retrofitting, redevelopment and green-field development. Under the retrofitting scheme, a city can undertake an area of minimum 500 acres and implement the scheme in three years and in the case of green-field development, the project area can be a vacant land spread over at least 250 acres and the project can be completed in phases. For Ajmer, the state has proposed to develop 1,334-acre area, out of which Rs 925-cr has been earmarked for area-based development and Rs 341-cr for pan-city upgrade. The major development has been proposed in the north side of Anna Sagar Lake in Ajmer. Similarly, for Kota which is to be developed as a green city, the state has proposed 395 acre area adjoining to Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) near Ranpur Village on which Rs 1,045-cr will be spent to develop the area and Rs 437-cr for the pan city development.
