Jaipur:  The development work of Dravyavati River Project in Jaipur was supposed to be completed by April 10, but the deadline will be missed once again. The government is planning to extend the deadline one more time, said officials.

As per the officials, the works worth about Rs 175 crore are still incomplete and the government officials have decided to extend the deadline.

According to the sources, the work is taking time due to some differences between the private firm Tata Projects Limited and Jaipur Development Authority (JDA). Some legal issues are also delaying the project.

An official announcement regarding the extension of the deadline is yet to be made.

The private firm is asking for a few more months whereas the JDA is asking to extend the deadline by two months, added sources.

The 13 km stretch of Dravyavati riverfront out of 47 km – that is the area from Sushilpura to Bambala bridge – was thrown open for public on October 2. The inauguration was done by then CM Vasundhara Raje at Landscape park in Mansarovar.

After that, Bird Park developed under the Dravyavati River Project near Panipech in Shashtri Nagar was thrown open for people on November 4. This is the second park developed under the project.

Three different parks that spread over an area of 1,00,000 sq. m have been designed and developed alongside Dravyavati river.

The Dravyavati riverfront is being developed along a length of 47-kilometers across the city.

The Dravyavati River was the long-lost river of the city before this project initiated. What remained was the Amanishah Nala, where the city’s untreated sewage, large amounts of garbage and industrial effluent used to get dumped.
