Getting in touch with winning strategies is rather important when planning our own development strategies.  In Orissa, major developments have taken place in the capital city Bhubaneswar.  Before planning the development of certain [url=] Properties Kerala [/url] can take a leaf out of the successful implementation of certain projects in that so called backward state. 


Amongst the completed projects by Bhubaneswar Development Area (BDA) are included plotted development schemes at Bargarh, High Income Group (HIG) at Palaspalli, rental housing at Chandrasekharpur; amongst the on-going projects is included plotted development of various places including housing projects and staff quarters.  Further, in order to cater to the need of the 21st Century, BDA is preparing a plan for the development of Khandagiri area by having a new township.  BDA have also programmed to take up housing schemes at Pukhriput and Pandra areas with an estimated cost of 31.66 crore and 66.16 crore respectively, and a social housing scheme with the proposed estimate of 4.2 crore.


Bhubaneswar has 28,671 state government employees, which includes 3,396 gazetted, 17,100 non-gazetted and 8,175 Class IV employees.  The government has constructed only 10,891 houses, which caters to only 39.4 percent of the total strength of the employees.  These include 1,521 high-type quarters (Type V and above), 7,105 medium-type quarters (Type IV) and 2,265 lower-type quarters (Type III and below).


In addition, the BDA in collaboration with the Housing and Urban Development Corporation (HUDCO) launched a scheme to grant loan assistance to the Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Low Income Group (LIG), Medium Income Group (MIG) and HIG categories of people to facilitate construction/reconstruction/additions/completion of houses by persons who own residential plots within Bhubaneswar Development Area (BDA), priority being given to applicants under EWS/LIG category.
