Work on projects approved by the board of directors of Biharsharif Smart City Limited (BSCL) at a meeting held by its chairman-cum-principal secretary of urban development and housing department, Anand Kishore, in March this year started recently.

Biharsharif municipal commissioner Anshul Aggarwal, who is also the managing director of Biharsharif Smart City Project (BSCP), said groundworks on projects worth Rs 102 core under integrated control and command centre (ICCC) and road over covered drains from Bhattu Seth to Laheri police station worth Rs 120 crore were underway, while the bidding processes for the construction of a flyover near Bharaopar worth Rs 72 crore, sewerage and drains worth Rs 254 crore and rejuvenation of several ponds worth Rs 86 crore would be completed soon.

He said Bihar Rajya Pul Nirman Nigam would construct Biharsharif-Bharaopar flyover. “Constructions of a Town Hall building worth Rs 2.40 crore, new blocks of Nalanda Mahila College worth Rs 1.67 crore, trading and logistic hub at Biharsharif Bazar samiti worth Rs 14 crore (phase I) and worth Rs 57 (phase II) are also in progress,” Aggarwal added.

The municipal commissioner said several other projects, including installation of rooftop solar panels on government buildings, upgradation of nine primary schools, rejuvenation of ponds and health club would also be undertaken. “Projects worth Rs 322 crore are in different stages of construction. Most projects will be completed before the deadline,” he added.

Biharsharif, the headquarters of Nalanda district, was included in the Centre’s flagship ‘Smart Cities Mission’ in 2018.

Aggarwal said the BSCL has so far received Rs 100 crore equally shared by the Centre and the state government for the smart city projects. “Of the allotted amount, Rs 40 crore has already been spent,” he added.
