WBHIDCO and NKDA on are trying to complete major development of New Town as early as possible. Within a relatively short time of 10 years New Town Kolkata (RAJARHAAT) has grown substantially to it’s present form.

So NKDA and WBHIDCO pushes all cooperatives to start participating on the development of the town by giving them deadline to get sanction by 31st Dec ’16. (However, with present infrastructure of Sanctioning department who are already overburdened, one would question the viability of such move.) Nevertheless, it is surely a welcome move as the city now poised to get into shape quicker than without any such initiatives.
