Ban on Vasundhara's dream project; Dispute with JDA

The Tata Group, which works for the former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's dream project, the Dravyavati River Front, has stopped the maintenance work of the project. After the dispute with JDA, the company had warned to stop the work in the past. Due to this move of the company, now the STP plant built there and other maintenance work has stopped. Treated water is discharged into this river from 5 STPs built here. With the closure of these STPs, now the water here will again rot as before.
If sources are to be believed, the company's demand was that JDA should start the official maintenance of this project, but JDA does not want to start it till the company completes the final work of the project. JDA engineers said that Goner still has a lot of work left and the company has not worked in many places even in the court dispute regarding land near Sitapura.
Executive Engineer (XEN) Deepak Mathur, who is looking after the work of the Dravyavati river project in JDA, said that the company has sought Rs 110 crore from JDA for maintenance. He told that until the company does not finalize the project, as per the rules, JDA cannot start the maintenance officially.
JDA started the work on this project in the year 2016 during the time of the Vasundhara government. Then the Tata company was given a contract of Rs 1470.85 crore to build this project. Apart from this, Rs 206 crore was earmarked for maintaining this project for the next 10 years. Starting from village Jaisaliya at the foothills of Nahargarh till Ramchandrapura Dam located near Khod river Goner, 5 sewerage treatment plants of 170MLD capacity have been built in this 47.50 km long project. Apart from this, apart from a walk-way, and cycle track, 3 big parks have also been built here, which are currently being maintained by the company.
