Yesterday, the state government issued a notification appointing Shri Anindyo Karforma, Director General of Buildings Department of Kolkata Municipal Corporation to be a member of New Kolkata Development Authority. He will also be designated as the chief of the Building Committee of NKDA. His vast experience with KMC is expected to bring in professionalism in New Town as well. This assumes greater significance since in the hinterland of New Town too, NKDA building rules will prevail over panchayat rules for all big buildings.
I spoke to Shri Karforma yesterday and welcomed him to NKDA.
