Nila Infrastructures to construct 3,152 flats for Rajasthan government

Nila Infrastructures Limited said it got a contract worth Rs 107.3 cr from Jodhpur Development Authority to create 3,152 flats in Barli.

The Company will also get 7.5 acres free of cost that can be sold or developed.

The township, to be completed in four years, comprise 2,128 flats for economically weaker section at 325 sq ft and 1,024 flats for low income group users with 500 sq ft. In total, there would be 1.2 million sq. ft. of built-up area.

The project is part of Chief Minister Jan Awas Yojana 2015.

Commenting on the project award, Mr. Deep Vadodaria, Chief Operating Officer said: “we have been consistently participating in apt tenders and securing meaningful work orders – with this one being our seventh.

“Having gained proprietary knowledgeabout project execution at Jodhpur from our current ongoing Affordable Housing project at Village Aanganwa, Jodhpur; we are quite confident to execute this second Affordable Housing Project at Jodhpur very efficiently.

“We also stand to gain from a sizeable premium land parcel with higher FSI in the developing locality of Barli. Such land parcel offers financial and operational flexibility to either use it for captive consumption or monetize it by selling it to other developer/s, depending on the market trends,” he added.
