Sports City

In Dumurjala of Howrah City, a sports city will be built up. Land will be allotted  through e-auction. There is a chunk of 50 acres of land that presently belongs to the Howrah Improvement Trust. There are a few guidelines that have to be followed. 25% of the housing units have to be for the Economically Weaker Sections. The recent guidelines of the Housing for All (Urban) defines EWS as families earning less than Rs 3 lakhs a year. These guidelines also say that a subsidy @ Rs 1.5 lakhs per EWS unit can be given by Central Government if 35% of the housing are for the EWS. The carpet area of EWS units have to be 30sq m. The other condition is that 25% of the land area will have to be devoted to sports facilities like football /cricket ground, swimming pool etc. Town Planning norms and National Building Code and Municipal Laws and Environment Laws etc have to be followed as well.

Subject to these few guidelines, the government is open to suggestions from interested investors to consider further facilitation through global FAR, installments commensurate with revenue inflow, single window assistance etc. To listen to all such suggestions before framing RFQ/RFP documents, a formal RFI or request for Information has been called on 10th July 2015 at 3 PM, calling upon prospective investors/ developers/ financiers to attend. Details are given in RFI_on_10_July .

Before that, a site visit will take place the day before on 9th July at 1pm or so. Ministers, Mayors and few professionals are being invited for the site visit. Following is a graphic that we will put up at the site shortly:
