Chandigarh, Aug 10 (Ajit Weekly News) Haryana Agriculture Minister J.P.

He said no time limit has been fixed for the development of roads. In the first priority list of the projects, the sector roads, green belts and 24-metre roads, which are yet to be acquired, are included under the final development plan of Gurugram.
Dalal said the roads in Sector 65 have been constructed by GMDA. It has been identified for the development under a pilot project. Neither the colonizer, nor the process of granting licence is involved in this process, so it is not necessary to give the license number and the name of the colonizers and the project related details.

Chautala apprised the House that the land for proposed alignment is being finalised for purchasing through e-bhoomi portal. Construction work of the road can be taken up only after purchase of requisite land so at present no timeframe can be given at the juncture.
