KANPUR: Kanpur Development Authority (KDA) is contemplating to make use of the land of various government departments lying unused to provide residential facilities to the people of the city.

KDA vice-chairman Arvind Singh on Friday convened a meeting with the officials of the labour department and discussed about unused land of its department lying in the city.

The vice chairman identified two lands belonging to the Government TB Hospitals at Babu Purwa in Kidwai Nagar and Raipurwa. Both these hospitals have been closed for a long time.

He said both lands had perhaps been granted to the labour department by the Cawnpore Improvement Trust which was KDA’s old institution for a special usage and for a particular period. He asked the officials to examine the documentation executed in this regard.

According to SB Rai, public relations officer, after the meeting, the vice-chairman and officials of the labour department visited the two sites and found that the land could be used for residential purposes.

The secretary and KDA officials will now examine the documents related to the lands of the labour department, the PRO added.
