GUWAHATI, Jan 18 - In a bid to decongest Guwahati, the State government proposes to declare the fringe areas of the capital city as the Capital Territory Region (CTR).

Guwahati Development Department Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the State government is contemplating the same in the line of National Capital Region (New Delhi).

�The fringe areas including Boko, Chaygaon, Rangiya, Sipajhar and other such areas would form the CTR,� Sarma said while speaking during a workshop titled �Rain Water Harvesting� here today.

�To further expand Guwahati, the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) had come up with a novel idea of constructing three bridges over the river Brahmaputra, including bridges from Narengi to Kuruwa, Guwahati to North Guwahati and Palasbari to Hajo or Sualkuchi,� the Minister said.

�Expanding Guwahati is one of the biggest challenges that lie ahead of the GMDA. We want to bring the fringe areas under the CTR concept or the Greater Guwahati map. Hopefully our department will be able to bring a law required to make CTR a reality,� he said, adding that until and unless Guwahati is decongested, it will not be possible to achieve the developmental goals.

�The idea is to construct greater infrastructure for Guwahati so that we can survive and excel as a city at the same time. We need to borrow innovative ideas on urban planning. We need greater interaction with the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) of the country,� he stressed.

�Already, we are working with a few IITs and we need to further increase the ambit by roping in more experts from various other IITs,� the Minister added.
