The infrastructure in Karnal is set to get a major uplift with Haryana government chalking out a 100- day action plan to boost Karnal Smart City project along with Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) .
The development work on the projects under these missions was affected after the imposition of model code of conduct for the Lok Sabha polls.Under the Karnal Smart City Mission announced on June 23, 2017, Rs 1211 crore was allocated for the development of 720 acres.
However, out of Rs 103 crore allotted initially, only Rs 12.52 crore have been utilized to complete 4 projects. Now, the work on all the stalled projects will be put on fast track. Some of these projects include Pedestrian- friendly pathways with specially -abled design, intelligent traffic management , smart parking management, energy efficient street lights, central plaza in Bus Stand redevelopment, theme parks, water bodies and meditation parks,skating rink, development of Karan Lake, widening of Karnal- Meerut national highway and low- cost housing for urban poor.
