Nagpur: Tainted for city’s haphazard growth, the Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) has continued to delete reservations authorized within the city’s construction plan (DP) with out making alternative provisions in different portions of the town.
In the most recent circumstances, reservation of market and green belt were deleted from sprawling 10 hectare land for industrial functions at mouza Chikhli (deosthan) in East Nagpur and Wanjara in North Nagpur.

The NIT board of trustees authorized the selections within the assembly held not too long ago. Reservations were made within the DP making an allowance for needs for right kind construction of the town and therefore, the reservations can't be deleted. If deleted, the NIT or the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) must make provisions of these reservations in different portions of the town. However, the NIT did not conform to the norm.

The NIT has authorized deletion of reservation of market on 5.70 hectare land with khasra nos 73, 94 and 102 (portions) in mouza Chikhli (Deosthan). Commercial use has been authorized on 3.70 hectare and industrial on the closing two hectare land.

As in line with the NIT board’s notice, 2.22 hectare of three.70 hectare belongs to Shankarrao Patil and Company and closing 1.48 hectare is owned through the NIT. The latter had laid industrial plots on its land and leased them out to personal parties.

Shankarrao Patil and Company had submitted an application with the NIT in the hunt for industrial use on its 2.22 hectare land. Commercial use may just now not be accepted on this land as adjacent space was once for industrial functions. To make this possible, the NIT took a choice to change user on its plots to industrial.

For this, the NIT applied reservation of industrial on the two hectare land situated within the neighborhood. The land is situated alongside the Inner Ring Road near Kalamna market. Also, the land is a part of Eastern Industrial Area Street Scheme. The NIT was once supposed to acquire the land for the scheme but not noted it for years. Due to NIT’s lengthen, the powers of acquisition were given lapsed.

Kothari Pottery Works owns the land and has requested for deletion of reservation. The company’s plan is to expand a wholesale fabric market on the land.


The NIT has allowed industrial use despite the fact that no industrial plots are situated in its neighborhood. The space adjacent to the land is demarcated for residential and industrial functions. The demand has been regarded as following suggestions of three legislators.


The NIT will perform strategy of segment 37 of the MRTP Act for deleting the 2 reservations wherein folks can put up their ideas and objections.
