Jaipur’s Golf Course Project: All you need to know
Jaipur: Golf Course project was BJP-led Vasundhara Raje government’s one of the most ambitious projects. We are writing this in the past tense simply because it may never take off. Despite inviting tenders twice, no investors have taken interest in the project. As per the latest developments, the JDA has shelved the project for now because the civic body won’t invite tenders for the third time, keeping in view the current condition of the real estate market. The golf course was to be named as ‘ELED’
Here are some of the key features of the project.
- The project is proposed on Jaipur-Delhi National Highway near Achrol village, some 32 kilometres from the city, while 15 km from Kukas area.
- It is supposed to be developed on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.
- The land earmarked for the project is surrounded by institutional areas and hotels including Amity University, NIMS Medical College, Rajasthali Resort, Le Meridian and Hotel Fairmont.
- The proposed site is spread over an area of 149.97 hectors.
- Under the project, an 18-hole international golf course is to be developed. The golf course will be spread over an area of 240 bigah.
- A hotel of four star or above category is to be constructed.
- A club house with swimming pool, spa and Jacuzzi facilities and other sports facilities.
- JDA also plans to construct villas on a built area up to 1,50,000 square metres.
- Apart from that, it will also boast of commercial spaces for food courts and multiplexes
- JDA expects to earn earn revenue of approximately Rs 300 crore per annum from the project.
- JDA plans to lease out the new golf course for 60 years.
- The empowered committee of infrastructure development chaired by then chief secretary C S Rajan cleared the project at Achrol village in the district. Tenders have been invited twice since then, but no investor showed interest.
