We had reported as early as in 2010 KalaMandir to be rebuilt as a Shopping complex, and now the same is yielding fruits under the Smart city project.

Kalamandir, Tilakwadi which now is home to garbage trucks and an Aadhar centre, the entire structure will be demolished and a new commercial complex would be built.

About 1.15 acres of land is on disposal and Rs.43.5 crores have been allocated for the same and the tender is expected to float in the next fortnight.


In 2014 again it was proposed on PPP model with ULB contribution from the private investor or through Government soft loan. But nothing moved on here.

Now under the smart city project, this project is likely to gain momentum.

This project is under Area Based Development – NEW CITY CENTERS
