Guwahati: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday laid foundation stone for the Integrated Directorate Complex at Betkuchi.
Sarma said as part of his government’s efforts to make governance more citizen centric by making public services available under a single roof, the Integrated Directorate Complex has been planned in Guwahati.
The Integrated Directorate Complex at Betkuchi in Guwahati will cost Rs 808 crore, the chief minister said.
The site of the Integrated Directorate Complex is just off NH-37, connecting Guwahati with the entire North-East region of India, and is in close proximity to the Interstate Bus Terminus.
The Integrated Directorate Complex at Betkuchi in Guwahati will come up on a plot of land measuring approximately 11.5 acres and allows for a total built-up area of 1.3 million sq ft of office space and requisite parking and services infrastructure in basements.
In addition to laying the foundation of the Integrated Directorate Complex, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday also took part in Bhumi Pujan for construction of a new Police Commissionerate at Khanapara in Guwahati.
To be completed in 24 months, the Rs 95 crore building will house all departments and branches working under Commissioner of Police, Guwahati and boost police administration in the city.
