The state government has taken a decision in this regard and officials have been given instructions in this regard.”

“Master plan is important for the development of cities. Under the Master plan, sites will be identified for the development of housing colonies, parks, industries and drains. During the British period, circuit Houses and Town Halls were constructed in the district headquarters, but now they are not in good conditions, therefore, the government has decided to construct Samrat Ashok Convention Centers/halls in all local urban bodies”, said Chaudhary.
