Draft master plan Amritsar 2010-2031

Considering the role and importance of rational and orderly growth of urban centers, the Government of Punjab intends to streamline the development process in urban settlements to ensure that these settlements continue to achieve their objectives of improved efficiency and productivity. Accordingly, it is desirable to have a stringent check on haphazard development and have an optimum land use plan for these cities/towns. In the process, the state government has taken the decision to prepare Master Plans for all towns and cities for a directed development and to provide world-class amenities to its people. The prime objective of the Master Plan is to promote, guide and rationalize the future growth and development of urban centers. It will endorse growth in the desired direction, promote economic development, improving service delivery and providing amenities to its people. Master Plan ensures rational policy choices besides providing a flexible framework based on ground realities for a defined time span.
