Udaipur will have a bird park very soon...the first of its kind in the country.
Udaipur is getting ready to hear more of flapping wings. Very soon the city will have a bird-park, first ever in the country.
Lake City will be hearing more of flapping wings in less than a year and half. The country’s first ever bird park will soon be home to a variety of birds in Gulab Bagh. Estimate for the bird park is 11 and a half crores and the tenders will be made open on 14th July. 1900 hours on 13th July is the deadline set for filing tenders.
Mumbai’s Green Pro India Consultant company has submitted a project report which states the placement of bird cages. The foundation of this bird park was laid on 26 February 2016. Municipal Corporation was given the responsibility of establishing this park and even the tenders had been filed then. The tender was cancelled since as per rules an autonomous body could not be assigned this project. Now Forest department has assigned this project to Rajasthan State Road Development Corporation who appointed Mumbai’s consultant company to start the long awaited work of this bird park.
Chief Forest Conservator Rahul Bhatnagar said that 11 bird cages will be made in 5.11 hectare land of Gulab Bagh. Out of these, tenders for 5 cages will be made open on 14th July. The estimated budget for these cages is 350 lakh rupees. Fifteen days later, tenders will be opened for remaining 6 cages. Along with this, there is a provision for hospital, watch-tower, public utility and education centre as well. Of the 11.5 crores budget, 8 crores will be pooled in by tourism department, 1.75 crores by Municipal Corporation and 1.75 crores by UIT. A period of 11 months has been allotted for the completion of bird park project as per tender.
