Erstwhile Collector of Udaipur, Rohit Gupta’s tenure will be remembered for his remarkable efforts towards the development of Udaipur. New development as well as completion of pending tasks has been the gist of his performance, while at the helm of the administration at Udaipur.
It was during his tenure that Udaipur was selected for the national smart city program and once this was announced, Rohit Gupta arguably left no stone un-turned in ensuring that developments were in line with the Rs 1000 Crore projects plans to drive the smart city initiative. Rohit Gupta’s efforts were appreciated by all involved in development work as well as the residents in the city.
Ring Road and Beti Uddhyaan among major initiatives
The Ring Road around Goverdhan Sagar has been one of the major developments during Rohit’s tenure in Udaipur. The Beti Uddhyaan has been another inclusion worth appreciation, as it changed the complete landscape of the Ratnagiri hills. Motivating participation from residents was another initiative that needs to be appreciated.
Rejuvenation of Gumaniyawala and Ayad river
The dream project of giving a Venice look to the Ayad river came into being once the project was granted the Rs 300 Crore grant during Rohit’s stay at Udaipur.
A concern towards the parking and traffic issues of the city
Rohit initiated the discussion towards enhancing parking facilities at Fatehsagar, SIERT and Townhall road. The projects are underway, with Townhall already completed.

The computerisation at UIT and the enhancement of road networks around the city are credited to Rohit Gupta.
