Gandhi Ground, situated in the heart of Udaipur city, is set to undergo significant improvements soon. The Municipal Corporation plans to re-issue tenders for the incomplete athletics track and other pending work at the sports ground. As part of the redevelopment, a new athletics track, volleyball court and kabaddi ground will be established. To enhance security, CCTV cameras will be strategically installed throughout the entire ground.
The work has been unfinished for approximately 6 months. This initiative falls under the Smart City project, with an approved budget of Rs 1.80 crore. Regrettably, the previous contractor abandoned the project prematurely, leaving the work incomplete. The Municipal Corporation aims to rectify this and ensure the successful completion of the proposed enhancements to Gandhi Ground.
In light of this, District Sports Officer Ajit Jain, along with officials from various sports associations, held a meeting with the Municipal Commissioner to address their concerns. Following this meeting, Municipal authorities conducted an on-site visit to Gandhi Ground to evaluate the status of the pending work.
According to District Sports Officer Ajit Kumar Jain, the upcoming new tenders for Gandhi Ground signals a fresh approach to preparing Cinder Athletics Track. According to the District Sports Officer Ajit Kumar, the upcoming new tenders will provide Cinder Athletics Track on the grounds of Gandhi Ground. The work will also include refurbishment of the gym for players and electrical improvements for the table tennis court.
Under the initiatives led by the Municipal Corporation, security enhancements are planned for Gandhi Ground and Luv kush Indoor Stadium. This involves the installation of CCTV cameras to surveil individuals entering the field.
