Waterfronts To Come Up in Guwahati for Public, DC, CP Offices & Bungalows to Relocate
The office of the Deputy Commission will be shifted to Rupnagar while the office of the Commissioner of Police will be shifted to Khanapara.
Guwahati: As per reports, the offices of the Deputy Commissioner and the Commissioner of Police will soon relocate to different parts of the city.
The offices of the Deputy Commissioner, Revenue and the Registrar will be shifted to Rupnagar while the office if the Commissioner of Police will be shifted to Khanapara.
The current locations of these offices will be used in the upcoming waterfront projects of the state government after the demolition of the buildings.
On Wednesday, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma visited the newly allocated locations for review. He was accompanied senior officials of the state.
Speaking to the press, said, "We will be relocating the DC, CP offices, and bungalows as the waterfront needs to be opened up for the public. The Commissioner of Police will be brought to Khanapara and the work will start in another two to three months. It will be an iconic building."
He added, "Right now the office of the Kamrup DC is in a congested location. We will expand it and make it spacious. In fact, in Assam, we will expand 10 DC offices. Here we have almost 10 bighas of land and as the offices are scattered we will bring them at one place. Also, the election counting is done here and so we will have some ancillary facilities as well. I have asked them to increase the parking area to accommodate 200 cars. On an average we will spend around Rs. 45 crore for each DC office. Here it will be a bit more. According to the Master Plan the Guwahati Waterfront has be readied within five years but in our tenure it will be completed in three years."
He shared the news regarding the same from his official Twitter handle. He wrote, "Also visited the sites of erstwhile DC Bungalow & residence of govt officers at Brahmaputra River Front, Panbazar. Govt buildings, older than a century, will be transformed into heritage sites. Those less than 100 yrs old will be demolished for beautification of the riverfront."
