“We had a meeting with the Additional Chief Secretary (ACS) Agriculture in November where it was decided that the land offered by GMDA in Sector 52A was not suitable for the project and instead the Administrator Haryana Shahari Chief Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) would identify another 8-12 acres of land for the development of the flower market,” said a senior GMDA official who declined to be named.
The matter was further discussed at the ninth meeting of the GMDA Authority held earlier this month, where Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who is also the chairman of the GMDA, ordered that the flower market is rather developed on the outskirts of the city.
“The President has directed ACS Agriculture to look for a site in an outlying area of ​​the city like near Dwarka highway to ensure that the project does not cause any kind of congestion in Gurgaon,” the official said. official quoted above, adding that possibilities in this regard are currently being explored by ACS Agriculture in consultation with the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC).
