Land status changed for ARAI’s lab
The urban development department is planning to convert about 50 acres of land in Kothrud, which is marked as ‘hill top hill slope zone’ in the development plan of the city, to ‘public/semi-public zone’. The department has invited suggestions and objections from citizens on modification of the zone.
The land is to be used for construction of a vehicle testing track and laboratories for the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). Forest Department’s land at survey number 102 (part) Kothrud has been granted to the ARAI a few years ago for its ambitious projects.
