The two-storied parking will be constructed in approximately 49,000 square metre area
JAIPUR: As permission from the high court is mandatory for any kind of construction in Ramniwas Bagh, Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has sought advocate general’s (AG) directions for the proposed underground parking extension.
To avoid any kind of violation, the civic body is taking legal advice for the second time for this project.
Earlier, the tender for the Rs 94-crore project was prepared after receiving JDA legal cell’s nod.
An engineer at JDA said, “We want to be sure before initiating construction that it is not contempt of court. Tenders have been prepared and bidders will be invited once nod is received”.
After Jaipur Smart City Limited (JSCL) gave the administrative and financial sanction, JDA initiated work to complete documentation and procure necessary permissions. The authority has also applied for environmental clearance.
The civic body’s executive committee (EC) has given a nod to the tripartite agreement to be executed between Jaipur Smart City Limited (JSCL), Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) and the contractor for Ramniwas Bagh underground parking project, phase-II.
JDA has also prepared the parking design.
An official said, as per the preliminary design, majority of the constructions will be beneath the Union Football Ground at the park. The twostoried parking will be constructed in approximately 49,000 square metre area.
Once constructed, the parking space will house 1,530 vehicles.
JDA had earlier proposed to extend underground parking till Jaipur Traffic Police office towards Ajmeri Gate end. However, the authorities are apprehensive about constructing a parking space beneath Sawan Bhado Park as it might violate high court directives which prohibited construction of any kind in that area.
“The maximum construction will be carried out beneath the football ground and the space connecting Ravindra Manch and existing parking,” said an official.
